New Mass Effect 3 Trailer Is So Great I’m Sexually Aroused
Late-breaking news in the world of TMI, this new “Against All Odds” trailer for “Mass Effect 3″ makes me feel…indecent. Ahem. Is it stuffy in here or what, could we crack a window or something? Must be those December heat waves Al Gore kept warning us about. Whew.
But seriously, what do we have here? Combat rolling, sprinting, an even cleaner HUD, and unmistakably sharper graphics. There’s also more of an emphasis on movement and action. I think we can tell that “Mass Effect” is continuing its retreat from RPG Town and into Actionville. And much as I know Mecha disapproves, I think it’s the right move
The original ME was spread too thin by ambition. Many balked at ME2′s paired down RPG elements, but the result was a better-focused, higher functioning game, not a buffet of unfinished ideas. Besides, if you want an RPG, go play “Dragon Age.” “Mass Effect” is a choice-based, character-driven action spare opera. God bless it.
ambition makes you look pretty ugly
