“Mass Effect 3” voice cast revealed…

So, not the latest PopCap game, then?

So, “Mass Effect 3” is nearly with us – roll on March – and the hype train is thundering away with the force of a Normandy doing a hard burn to avoid a Reaper vessel.

Not that I freaking love these games or anything.

As I gnaw my fingernails to the quick in the hope that I can some demo action going soon, I’m sating my Shepherd-based squeeing by watching this video revealing the cast of “Mass Effect 3”, via those saucy Topless Robot monkeys.

I don’t know that it’s necessarily a spoiler to tell you that Martin Sheen, Seth Green and Tricia Helfer are returning, but I confess to being fairly surprised to see IGN host, Podcaster and RPG nut Jessica Chobot rounding out the voice cast.

See - Chobot! In "Mass Effect 3".

I’m somewhat bummed that she’s not voicing a Krogan – ’cause Krogans are awesome – but happy to see a fellow Siouxsie and The Banshees fan getting her props.

“Avengers” Superbowl trailer tease


Because I’m that much of a Joss Whedon fanboy and can’t wait to see “The Avengers” movie, here’s a blink and miss it tease of the trailer which will play during some sportsball-based event or other this weekend.

As I’m going to be on holiday on next week, I may not get the chance to see the full trailer for a while but this indicates that all of my superhero-related needs are going to be met in full.

Avengers Assembling? Check.  Lots of things being needlessly blown up whilst panicked office workers run away from them and try not to look into the camera?  Check.  A kooky, ‘dutched’ angle of ScarJo apparently included solely to reduce my compadre D-X into a pool of lovesick, watery whimsy, “Amelie”-style?  Check-a-mundo.

American Jedi jailed

An oppressed Jedi, yesterday.

This is why a Sith-based judiciary is a bad idea.

Do you ever get the sense that somehow the real news and the Onion’s spin on it have been mixed-up?

Where’s Chris Morris when you need him?
