New Mass Effect 3 Trailer Premieres During Walking Dread
 
 

The latest look at what will be an epic sequel is now available, and it made its debut on one of the hottest dramas on TV.

Specifically, it premiered during last night's episode of AMC's original drama The Walking Dead. Mass Effect 3 is due out in just a couple weeks, on March 6. Die-hard fans have already been playing a demo since it was made available as a download on Valentine's Day.

The game is one of Microsoft's poster children when it comes to delivering on the promise that its motion-sensing, voice-activated camera accessory first presented when it was still known as "Project Natal."

The software giant said the technology would revolutionize games, it would be a new way to play, and it would make us think twice about what video games mean.

But like so many things, Kinect launched to the disappointment of many who said all that lofty PR speak was just hype. Kinect ended up being nothing more than Microsoft's version of the Wii Remote, with mini-games and extremely casual adventures taking up nearly every Kinect shelf in stores.

However, it seems the hype may finally be realized, and the latest Bioware installment is proof positive.

In Mass Effect 3, players will be able to shout out commands to their computer-controlled teammates, use their voice to toggle between weapons, and carrying on conversations with other non-playable characters.

The question was whether or not Bioware would live up to that hype and flesh out the technology even more to make it a viable part of the game. It appears the company has done exactly that.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
