So who else has seen the MULTIPLE Mass Effect 2 advertisements during the Vikings - Saints game? I think its awesome that BioWare and EA have decided to advertise to the mainstream. I think this is a very good call, as its a game that deserves all the exposure it can get!
 
Plus the advertisements are giving me goosebumps for Tuesday!
 
So excited, I can't wait!

Saw an ad for it a couple of times last night which featured Shepard, Grunt and Thane shooting at some dudes. Shepard shoots them with some big dimensional rift type gun thing, the enemies disappear and end up inside a toilet. 
 
I was confused, I can tell you. Made the game look a bit like Duke Nukem or something.

I can't. I'm going to be begging my parents to let me get it at the midnight opening.

It was "Heart of Courage", by Two Steps From Hell.
 
And I will agree that it was quite awesome.

Loved the Mass Effect 2 halftime stats, as read by a clearly confused Joe Buck.  I will say though, I'm not sure who the ads are for, as I don't see the NFL demographic and Mass Effect demographic crossing over that much.  The ads seem like they would be confusing for anyone not already in the know.

Could you specify which ad you're referring to. Maybe even insert the video into one of the posts or something cuz I can't find anything that I haven't seen yet. Perhaps it is just a video they recycled from before. Based on your guys' hype and happiness, I hope not.

That was the gamestop created ad, those are always horrible attempts at humor that tell nothing about the game.

@Lukaz: Must not be on the net yet as I can't seem to find it either. There were at least two different ones, if not three. The last one was the long one, had Martin Sheen's character in it and it was absolutely awesome!

Reeeeeallly. Hmmm, it was on Australian TV and at the end had the PRE-ORDER TODAY AT EB GAMES FOR UNLOCKABLE BULLSHIT thing. I know Gamestop owns EB but that's fascinating that they don't change the ad for international usage. Hmm very interesting, thank you for the info.

I believe that's because the albums aren't sold commercially, but I could be wrong.
 
I'd try Limewire or some such if you don't have any luck.

That's awesome that EA and Bioware are advertising Mass Effect 2 during a mainstream event.

Ahh okay. I was kinda hoping for something new and exciting but I guess I just got exciting. That's nothing to complain about though since the launch trailer is fucking awesome. And I know what you mean about watching it on the big screen. I downloaded the trailer and transferred it to my 360 via USB key. It looks amazing.

As a minnesotan, those ads ALMOST made the loss less painful. Almost.
