Mass Effect 2 Launch Trailer is Epic

I’m looking forward to January 26 with more than a little bit of trepidation because I’m seriously worried about what Mass Effect 2 will do to my life. The more excited I get about a game the more sponge-like I become, absorbing as much information as I can until I burst at the seams with hype and PR speak. Since the game comes out next week, I think this is the last in the deluge of videos that have been put out for this title. Sit back and enjoy Mass Effect 2’s launch trailer.

So, who else is getting this game, and for what system? I’m also curious to know if you’re going to pick up the Collector’s Edition. I certainly will.

  1. Take a look at my answer for question #2 in the last “Would you rather…?”, and you’ll know why I didn’t watch this trailer. I would like to point out, however, in a completely unrelated video game note, that the word “dearth” is commonly misused to mean “abundant” or even “too much of”, when in fact it means the exact opposite.

    Dearth: (n) an inadequate supply.

    Sorry, just the English teacher coming out in me. Carry on…oh, and I can’t wait for this game.

  2. Mitch, why do you keep doing this to me? This is already the first game i’ve ever pre-ordered and now you’re making me want to go and order another copy just because it looks that amazing. And i have to wait an extra 2 days than everyone else because i live in Australia. Its just not fair ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Yuck. Cheese.

    I don’t think they could have used any more clichรฉs. I got about an hour into the first one and had to uninstall.

    Sorry, just not my thing. By any means.

  4. Julez you must live in a sad and lonely world ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Also, what cliches are you talking about specifically? Awesome explosions? Spaceships? Characters?

  5. Out of all the great games this generation, Mass Effect was my favorite, and seeing as though they pleased the terribly hard to please OXM, I think it’s going to be another outstanding game.

  6. “…Because killing is an art, and I am a master” – said by some alien guy…

    “One very specific man might be all that stands stands between humanity and the greatest threat of our brief existance” (queue cheesy Rainbow Six music)

    “Attacking the Collectors would require passing through the Omega-4 relay… No ship has ever returned from doing so…”

    “We have to give everything, even if that means our lives. WE WILL STOP AT NOTHING. WE WILL FIGHT FOR THE LOST. (bigger Rainbow Six build).”

    I was expecting a “THIS IS SPARTA” at the end. C’mon eddy, you can’t see the clichรฉs in this?

    p.s. my world is filled with beautiful film and even more gorgeous music. Not a sad or lonely world by any means =).

    You can play what you want my friend, It’s just not up my alley, along with Star Wars, Final Fantasy, SPACE channel and Harry Potter/Lord of the Rings (they’re the same to me).

    Yeah; deal with that. I’m a geek but I don’t like those things. At the same time, I love TLW and Web Zeroes… Sooo 3 is bigger.

  7. TLW and WZ… the saddest existence of all. I should know! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    It’s interesting that you claim LOTR as a cliche, seeing as how it was the standard-setter for the fantasy genre. The cliches I think you’re thinking of in fantasy originated from LOTR for the most part.

    Also, story tropes and cliches are not quite the same thing. Story tropes are common threads seen in lots of stories that exist because they work. People connect with them (for the most part). Yeah, the trailer had some classic trailer-ish lines, but those just pump me up.

  8. @ Eddy, I wasn’t saying LOTR was cliche, I was listing it among the things I don’t like.

    And Anthony I know it’s just a trailer. I’m sure the game will be very fun and “epic”. It just doesn’t make me want to play the game.

    No interest.

  9. Just when I thought Morrigan from Dragon Age was enough to jack off to, in walked the blue cyborg chick… goodbye social life… again.

  10. This video…actually gave me goose bumps.

    I want! I want! I want!

    I thought the first one was pretty awesome…but this…this just looks fantastic.

    Combine this with Bioshock 2…and I won’t be seen again until sometime in May.
