Videogame Trailer – Mass Effect 3

Dead Island was the first to attempt to tug at the heartstrings with a trailer that had little to do with the gameplay but with the feeling the game was attempting to capture, showing a little girl’s plight (in reverse-time) as zombies attack. With this trailer, Bioware does an even better job of yanking at your heart… with their extended trailer for Mass Effect 3.

From Bioware:

The war for Earth has begun. An unstoppable alien threat, known as the Reapers has invaded and you are the only one who can save Earth from annihilation. See the battle begin first hand in this action-packed cinematic trailer.

Gaming News – Felicia Day

Yeah, I admit it. I’m in platonic love (okay, maybe not so platonic, but I’m a realist) with Felicia Day. She once did a quick intro for one of the episodes of my podcast novel (Murder at Avedon Hill) and when I later met her at DragonCon, she actually recognized me after seeing my name on my badge. Not to mention, I got to witness her hold off her handler/bodyguard so she could talk to a young girl that had been waiting in line for twenty minutes, even though the “Walk of Fame” was closing, and even made the guy take the photo below even though he just wanted to get the heck out of the hall… 😉

Felicia Day has had great success with her webseries The Guild, as Penny in Joss Whedon’s Doctor Horrible, and  has had appearances/stints on shows such as Eureka, House, and Lie to Me. Heck, she even starred in one of the more bearable SYFY Saturday movies, Red: Werewolf Hunter.

And this fall she is featured in two forms of media for Dragon Age 2. Dragon Age 2: Mark of the Assassin is DLC for Dragon Age 2 that will be available on October 11th, and on that same day the live action webseries, Dragon Age: Redemption will also be available on XBox Live.
Redemption was written and stars Ms. Day, and I’m looking forward to both very much.

Here are links to two features on Felicia and the work she’s been doing with Bioware and Dragon Age 2:

The long awaited MMORPG from Bioware and Lucas Arts, Star Wars: The Old Republic, had a cinematic intro trailer unveiled at E3. The setting is thousands of years before the appearance of Darth Vader, when the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire divides the galaxy. Similar to City of Heroes/City of Villains, you can choose to be Jedi or Sith.
