Okay, I admit, I haven’t played Bioware’s non-Star Wars sci-fi action-RPG Mass Effect. So I have no clue what’s going on in this video for Mass Effect 2. While I might be ignorant of the game itself, I certainly know it has its fans, so I thought you’d want to check out full-length cinematic trailer, complete with Martin Sheen and Tricia Helfer doing voices (and inspiring character models, obviously). Frankly, I might have to play it just to hear Sheen get forced to say ridiculous alien names like “Sunny Tuchanka.” Hee hee!
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
