Live action “Mass Effect 3” ad affects massively…

How about Sheffield City Hall for a change, invading alien overlords? Haters...

Any doubts that one might have had about the desire of games publishers to appeal solely to core gamers are neatly underlined by the new ad for “Mass Effect 3” – the wholly ambiguous and in no way on the chin “Fight” teaser, which you can see here.

Not looking good for the church's new roof fundraiser...

So, small children in the midst of civil unrest, young lovers embracing as the blasts hit and pious folks taking shelter in a church and major American landmarks getting jacked up – all good stuff to use to reach out to the folks who think that games are still like Mario the Hedgehog on the Nintendo Playstation.

Yep, that's a live-action ManShep alright...

One thing’s for damn sure after checking out this advert – you can see where EA are spending your Collector’s Edition cash …

“Mass Effect 3” demo is THIS close…

I'm Commander Shepard and I'm about to cap your ass...

Despite my previously documented love – nay, lust – for Bioware’s “Mass Effect” series of sci-fi role-playing action games, I resisted the temptation at the weekend to follow NeoGaf’s handy-dandy workaround for getting early demo access (this would have involved me registering fake details on a US website and generally being a naughty boy – I can wait for the 14th of February, when the demo properly drops onto Xbox Live) and wait with gamers all around the world for a chance to get back into the “Mass Effect” swing of things.

As I chew my fingernails, try to remember which button triggers my infiltrator’s shield and toy with the idea of penning bad fan fiction (“Tali’Zorah vas Neema quietly went about her rounds in the Normandy’s engine room and frowned slightly within her encounter suit, tapping absently at her data slate and its momentarily puzzling readings.  She wondered why the machines down here were still much easier to relate to than Commander Shepard,her crew mates and the strange Alliance culture she now found herself living with” – it’s a work in progress, people, a work in progress…), why not join me in taking a look at Eurogamer’s video of the first twenty minutes of the demo?

OMG! REAPERS!
