Mass Effect 2 Launch Trailer is Utterly Amazing

Just when you thought there couldn’t be even more hype for the new and upcoming Mass Effect 2 releasing January 26, 2010.  Its quickly becoming one of my most anticipated game of 2010, second to Final Fantasy 13.

Bioware is a company notorious for releasing fantastic “off the wall” rpgs and this is no exception.  For those that did play through Mass Effect 1 you’re definately in for a treat.  Go ahead and sample that trailer you know you want to.  In my opinion it seems like more of a movie than a trailer but it doesn’t have me complaining.
