@jennoa: She hosts the daily fix segment at ign.com

Posted by dagas

I imagine you can get the bonus mission and character as a DLC? I mean why would they spend time on creating a character and a mission and only the 5% who gets the CE would see that content.

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
Posted by jennoa

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

Posted by Gregomasta

Puerto Ricans in space! HELL YEAH! I'm back on board bioware, you played the race card and you won! I now have new motivation to replay me1 and me2 with a female character so vega taps dat ass in 3. So hype for latino's in space.

Posted by FoxMulder

NOW I hate the James Vega character because of Freddie Prinze Jr...WTF

Posted by Pop

those ending statements are so freaking funny to me, it really adds depth REALLY?

Posted by RetroVirus

The lack of Yvonne Strahovski and presence of Chobot is unsettling. Maybe they just didn't want to spoil any of the Miranda dialogue?

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.

Martin Sheen's final words really make that video in a very creepy way.

Don't know about you, but they make me hot!

i will not be using new characters come on!!! 3 should be about the old guys u were in the trenches with. keith david pimp shirt.

Posted by rimmonhouse

These testimonials all feel coerced or scripted (or both I guess ).

Posted by Icebuncle

@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?

@HT101: I wish Anderson actually looked like Keith David. That would be badass.

"to see a character driven action video game just doesn't happen"

Yeah, ok Freddie.

Sounds like what he was saying might have been edited down though.

Posted by HT101

I just wanted to see Keith David and the state of his facial hair. I consider this video a success. Keep it up Keith and Admiral Anderson needs to have a bigger role in this.

Every thing I see about Mass Effect 3 makes me want it less.

Well...I'm gonna replay ME2 now. lol.

I have to finish my second playthrough to get ready for it! Isn't fucking amazing how all 3 of these games can be played in sequence and carry through to one another? i still think that is blindingly awesome.

And so is Keith David's FUCKING SHIRT!

Posted by JayDubya

No Yvonne. Disappointed!

And I want to forget I just saw Jessica C.

Posted by CactusJack

Lets all focus on how badass Martin Sheen is......

Posted by Droop

The masters of story telling does it again! :L

Posted by Saltank

Wow, I never bothered to watch all these mildly spoilerific videos before ME2 came out, I think I'll stop at this one for ME3 and just enjoy it more when it's out.

On a plus note, I finally know who my beloved Liara is voiced by!

Posted by nERVEcenter

It turned from an interesting interview mash-up featuring some of the most like-able actors around into an obnoxious sales pitch at an alarming rate.

Very off-putting.

Posted by Red

I play paragon characters, but I will take every possible chance to beat the living crap out of Jessica Chobot's stupid character.

Can we get a trailer with the other crew that have been in since the first game? I want to see Garrus' voice actor talk about the game or have Wrex's voice actor say "Shepard".

Same. I'm surprised they even allowed Liara's voice actress in there; figured this was a ''recognisable tv/movie star only'' gig.

Open Water 2?

lol of course, the unsung classic.

My top three movies of all time

1. The Godfather

2. Open Water 2

3. Citizen Kane

Edited by AndrewB

Wait... Diana Allers isn't going to be a crew member, is she? Because I kinda feel like they've introduced enough characters, and I want to see the old cast return at this point.

God damn, I can't wait to play this game, no matter how it turns out. Mass Effect is the kind of universe and game type where I throw out my usual attitude of a trilogy is probably too much. I want more of it. It's so well produced and really the best sci-fi there is in video games these days. I love the characters. I want to see Shepard die but the rest go on to be in another, somewhat different Mass Effect game trilogy.

And - "pre-order to receive..." - just fuck off. This is the stupidest fucking shit in video games.

Posted by RVonE

I don't know what it is about his design but I feel Vega just looks ridiculous next to Shepard.

Edited by Chtasm

Wouldn't have given it a second thought if they had just used J-Bot's voice, but actually modelling her in game makes it seem like they're just trying too hard to appeal to people who believe she is an actual icon in the "gamer" community. I just hope the rest of the game won't suffer from things like this.

Posted by AiurFlux

The more I see from BioWare and Mass Effect 3 the more I worry about it. I just get the odd sense that this is going to be Dragon Age 2 all over again. And let's face it, that game fucking sucked.

Also Chobot. Really? What in the fuck were they thinking? "Hey guys let's get a mildly attractive female that talks about games to add cred to our game and make teenagers blow their collect loads!" "Sounds good!" The only, and I mean only, way I'll accept her being in it is if I can kill her off early on or if I get to punch her in the face like you can to that reporter. If she's in for the long haul I'm done. If she has more than a side role I'm done. If she gets aboard the Normandy I'm really fucking done. I'll go play Mass Effect 2. There's nothing wrong with Mass Effect 2.

why are voice actors trying to sell me a game? just tell me about what you do I don't give a fuck about what any of you think of games!

Posted by CitizenJP

Well...I'm gonna replay ME2 now. lol.

Edited by Jazzycola

So I guess this means Miranda isn't in the game since Yvonne Strahovski isn't in this trailer. I'm also guessing Bioware is a big fan of IGN's Girlfight podcast considering they hired 2 of the 4 original ladies that were on there. Surprised they could listen to any of their podcast with all the eating, burps, and bad sound editing during it.

chobot's character looks weird, they should have just used her voice and not try to recreate her within the game... doesn't look quite right.

@Icebuncle: Jennifer Hale and Ali Hillis are screen actors?

@Floppypants said:

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.

This should should be the game that gets me back on to console gaming.

I swear to god if Virtual Chobot doesn't lick an omni-tool.

I mean, what else does she have to offer?

Her gorgeous personality....

ah what the hell am I saying.

Jessica Chobot? sigh. who next, iJustine?

Gerstmann. I'd love to see a virtual Jeff in some random small part somewhere... or as a fucking Krogan.

@MasterMind34 said:

They didn't have Male Shepard because Jennifer Hale does an infinitely better job as Female Shepard.

I always wonder why that is the popular opinion. My main character is a male Shepard, but I've put several hours into the female version too. To me she sounds rather cold and sterile. I prefer the male voice.

@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.

Yes, space buss size of Eden Prime, filled to the brim with batarian ugly sticks.

Posted by RedRocketWestie

I can't make Freddie Prinze Jr.'s voice match that character, no matter how hard I try.
