You could have told me the same thing about Dragon Age II before it came out..

Oh you should've seen BioWare's forums before and after DAII was released. It was glorious.

@AuthenticM:

Most of the trailer features Male Shepard, though.

Jessica Chobot??? DO NOT WANT!!

Posted by I_smell

Yeah I think the general concensus from this video is "Jessica Chobot is in this game??"

Posted by meklubba

This game is: LIP GLOSS. and keith daivd.

Posted by MeatSim

That shirt Keith David is wearing should be on Anderson in the game.

Posted by Scratch

Why is Chobot in this? And like everybody has already said, "First chance I get, Chobot's character dies."

Posted by zodstein

Tricia Helfer makes Seth Green look like a Leprechaun LOL. Sidebar, Chobot it really immersion breaking. Is Olivia Munn in there too?

Posted by amir90

Yay! Where was Garrus?

Posted by csl316

We'll finally get to see Keith David's voice in combat. Gonna be nice having him yell orders at me. And I was surprised how much I enjoyed the Joker/EDI banter, so it'll be nice to get more. And Martin Sheen says just enough in this video to warrant me getting excited.

And then there's Chobot.

Posted by pickassoreborn

The character Chobot plays looks just like her. Hmm. Hey, I wonder if she'll get the chance to have sex with Shepard! Imagine the fanboygasm!
 
*facepalm*

I like how Chobot seems the least authentic about her enthusiasm towards ME3. Maby it's because the rest of the cast are much better actors/actresses that they make a more convincing case for why their excited towards the game. I dont have anything against her, she's good at presenting information, even if she doesnt know what she's talking about. I just feel kind of insulted by Bioware more than anything (first felicia day now this?) that their choosing star power over quality voice acting and experience.

Now that that's out of the way ME3 looks great! Seems like they've stepped up the cinematics a few hundred notches. I just hope there are some quieter character building moments inbetween the action.

Just because they aren't in the video doesn't mean they won't be in the game. Here is a link to a more complete list. The IMDB page has the full cast but spoilers ahoy.

i still find vega and other human companions as boring and arbitrary. compared to your alien allies (i.e.garrus) but guys like joker and anderson are interesting. . .but seriously eye candy in the form of jessica chobot? miranda was both eye candy and a compelling character.

Chobot da fuck?! First chance i get to kill her i will.

They rushed DA2 to market based on the success of the previous game. ME3 wasn't rushed, so they should be okay. Anyway, the few scenes from this video look good.

@HomemadeZiggurat: Ali Hillis has done a few film and TV apperances, though I know that she is mostly known for her voice work.

My point was that they mainly focused on screen actors, starting off with the "biggest names" and working their way down in a way. It feels like Hale and Hillis are there just to have some more women in it. If not, why not include male Shepard as well?

It's not even so much that they showed famous people, but that they really only showed the characters that are guaranteed to survive the endgame of Mass Effect 2. Note that they didn't show Garrus, Miranda, Jack, etc. I bet that's because those people could all die in the previous game, so they will only make cameo appearances in this one. So, the only people they showed in this trailer are Shepard (who could die in 2, but that obviously won't be canon), Liara, The Illusive Man, and a bunch of new characters.

Regardless, Liara is the only one I need. <3

I guess I am a little out of the loop, but who is Jessica Chobot?

 
She's the Kim Kardashian of video games.
 
Just like Kardashian got famous for having a sex tape. Chobot got famous for a "sexy" photo licking a PSP.

@Icebuncle: No male Shepard either.

Jennifer Hale looks somewhat older than I would have thought.

Well, she's been doing video game voiceovers for ... well, forever. I mean, she did the voice of Katrina in freaking Quest for Glory IV. I was in high school then. Jeeze that makes me feel old. I think she's got to be close to 40, but it doesn't come off that way in her voice acting.

An IGN writer/show host. She does those crappy IGN Strategize videos you see advertised on Xbox Live.

Chobot isn't one of your squadmates, right? Just a crewperson? I could stand a little dialogue from her if they're just trying to get a good score from IGN, but she's not an actress as far as I know. (Maybe she's just there to lick the omniblades clean?)

Really don't like Freddie Prince Jr., or Vega at all. If I have to sacrifice a squad member during this game, that choice has been made way ahead of time. He and Jacob can play rock-paper-scissors for the honor, but I'll throw both of them at a problem to be on the safe side.

IGN will give a good score to any and every game with an advertising budget. They didn't need to put an IGN employee in the game to get a 9+. That was a foregone conclusion.

Jessica Chobot? Why not just cast Olivia Munn and Morgan Webb while they're at it? Someone should put a wig on Ryan and see if they'll give him a cameo.

Or SPACE EGYPTIAN JEFF GERSTMANN as day 1 DLC. He's why you are buying it.

My head just imploded with the thought of that.

Posted by Stahlbrand

Kieth David's shirt.

Posted by Game_Baron

@Milkman: An elaborate shirt pin or something.

Posted by AuthenticM

Keith David!

Also, no male Sheperd is pretty indicative of how less popular he is than Jennifer Hale.

Posted by mooncake

Love the ending. HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH

anyways, where's Yvonne Strahovski....

Jessica Chobot in a game. I don't know about that...

Posted by allenibrahim

Hoping with all hope that my blind face in this game doesn't let me down. ME2 was one of my favorite games of all time. Pre-ordered this last week, and this video made me even more excited. I know a lot of people on the Internet don't like Chobot because she comes off as a pretty face reading from a script, but the Internet hates everyone. Her character DOES like really weird, though...

Not as weird (read: BADASS) as Keith David's shirt.

Posted by wsowen02

Just when I was starting to feel good about ME3 again they go and do this shit. Chobot? Really?

Posted by Godzilla_Sushi

I didn't know Chobot was in the game. That'll get the internet riled up one way or another.....

Freddy did do Wing Commander!

I'm really excited for Mass Effect 3. I think it will be fantastic and I'm fully invested in everything.

I need this game now!!

Haha, yeah could not agree more!

I kinda wanted to see who did/do Talis voice thyough...



She's featured in the Mass Effect 2 voice cast video they put out before the release of that game. Assuming it's the same voice actress, you can see her in that video.

Thanks man! I will try and look it up on youtube. =)

@Chippy180 said:

Whatever your feelings are toward Chobot's involvement, I think we can all agree that her character was hit by a spacebus somewhere down the line.

Looks like she's having an allergic reaction to some space-shellfish.

@Degringolade said:

I am so worried about this game.

What has you worried?

I've been feeling really uneasy about ME3 for a while, probably since the confirmation of multiplayer. Multiplayer is all well and good, but when they said it would be used to accumulate some resource used in the single player campaign, all sorts of red flags went up: What's the single player alternative for gathering that resource? Would they really offer compelling narrative context for gathering it in single player if they're hoping you'll skip that for multiplayer? Are repeatable MMO-like instances going to replace mining from ME2 and MAKO driving from ME as the gathering segment of the game, in single and multiplayer?

My doubts have only intensified as I've heard more and more rumors of leaked story bits that suggest a heavy retcon of your Shepard's actions, if they don't already align with the preset story of ME3.

This'll be the first Mass Effect game that I wait a couple months to pick up. That should be enough time to read numerous reviews, and to get some honest opinions on it as a conclusion to the trilogy after the launch goggles have faded.

They're negative because it's a videogame message board. Although the level of hate is quite surprising to me too.

I guess ... I just dont understand it :) ... as far as I remember ME1 and ME2 were pretty good games, dare I say great games. Just because Bioware fucked up DA2 doesnt mean ME3 will be bad.

Fuck all those Chobot nonsense.

LOOK AT KEITH DAVID'S SHIRT! WHAT IS THAT?!

I feel bad for these people because they don't realize how terrible the game they're in is.

And Bioware's Potato Face technology does strange things to Jessica Chobot.

wtf? So ... you already played the game? And why are people so damn negative? Just because there is someone in there as a voice actor you dont like? ... geez
