[update] PC demo is out now – download it here (requires Origin)
This trailer proves without a doubt that as creepy as the reapers might seem, nothing compares to the horror of an animated CG child. But more importantly, it signifies the fact that the Mass Effect 3 demo is available to download today on Xbox 360, PC, and PS3 (at 4pm PST) and is packed full of hours worth of single and multiplayer goodness. If you haven’t already, check out Kent’s impressions of the single player right here and check out the podcast tomorrow (live around 3:30pm PST) or Thursday for a whole lot of multiplayer impressions (and possibly footage).
And obviously right now you should go download the demo on your platform of choice (or wait a few hours until it’s ready to go) and check out this short teaser after the break.
Fans want FemShep trailer. Fans get FemShep trailer. Thanks BioWare. While I’ll personally be playing as regular old John Shepard, it’s cool to finally see a trailer cut from the eyes of the Shepard who’s not a dude. Check it out after the break.
I’ve been waiting to watch (and post) these videos since they were uploaded to YouTube days ago and someone momentarily forgot to set them to private, upon which YouTube decided to notify me right after the mistake was fixed. Nothing worse than thinking there’s a badass new Mass Effect trailer and then not being able to watch it, right? Luckily, they’re all up now, and there’s content for everyone. Want to avoid spoilers? Just check out the multiplayer and arsenal videos. Don’t care? Watch ’em all. And to be honest, all of these are more montage oriented rather than flat out showing things you don’t want to see, so they’re all relatively safe. Click through to watch them all.
To say that Saints Row The Third is balls to the walls insane is an understatement. At this point, The Saints are a multimedia icons. They have clothing stores, energy drinks, comic books and movies. The games city of Steelport is covered with skyscraper sized video ads of the Saints… that’s how big they are. When the game opens The Saints are robbing a bank, and with them is Josh Burke, an actor who’s set to play one of the Saints in a movie based on their lives. The robbery goes horribly wrong and before you know it you’re captured on a jet led by a group of gangs known as The Syndicate. Escaping this plane is yet another insane, over the top scene that even Michael Bay would say “Hey tone it down a bit.” But that’s just the start of how good this game is. Read more to see why this is the best sandbox game of the year.
This latest episode of BioWare Pulse starts off with the Dragon Age Facebook game, so skip ahead 2 minutes for what we all want to see: Mass Effect 3. Cinematics obviously play a huge part in the Mass Effect series, and the ones shown off in this video look quite good.
All I needed to hear was “a four minute video with gameplay from Max Payne 3” to get quite excited, but this new video series from Rockstar started off even better than I expected. Rockstar wants this shooter to feel precise and accurate while at the same time looking like an action film much like Uncharted. Judging from this video, it seems as though they’ve succeeded. Even despite the alternate setting and primarily different looking Max, it looks like Max Payne and Rockstar will turn out to be a great combo. I can’t wait! Check out the trailer after the break.
Ever since its creation, the Uncharted series has been the best reason to own a PS3. Uncharted 1 and 2 are two of my favorite games on the system because the voice acting, stories, and gameplay always come together in way that feels like an amazing action movie but somehow even better. Other games try to tell an epic story, but compared to Uncharted, they always fall short. So Uncharted 3 comes with some ridiculously high expectations. Perhaps too high.
The first trailer for Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto Five has just been released, and you can (and should) watch it right here, right now. Check it out after the break.
Executive Producer Casey Hudson answers questions from fans as BioWare shows off a little bit of footage from the game. While most of the questions are of the variety that can’t really be answered without giving spoilers, there are a few good ones towards the end regarding multiplayer and customization. It’s definitely worth checking out for the good bits, and like most Mass Effect videos, now I’m even more excited for the game. Less than five months now…

Watch a man climb over rubble, through rubble, beneath rubble, down through rubble and then kill a few fools at the end. It’s a useful skill to have if you’re in a post earthquake ravaged cityscape, and it looks like it might be a fun one to use too. We don’t get a whole lot of character from this short trailer, but as of right now (especially for an XBLA title) it’s looking pretty good.
Check it out in action after the break.
