Mass Effect 3: See a stunning teaser for Sunday's new CG trailer

On March 6, Mass Effect 3 will be loosed upon the world – an event noteworthy enough that you don't just need trailers to prepare you for it, you need trailers to prepare you for the trailers. Hence, this Sunday, a new promo spot for the game airs on AMC during The Walking Dead, and today, right this second, you can get a preview of the clip.

Savvy viewers will note the clip's resemblance to this classic political commercial, which famously did its job despite only ever airing once; it's fair to say the Mass Effect 3 “Take Earth Back” spot will run somewhat more times than that, most likely resulting in... Mass Effect being elected President? Let's not even get to speculating, then, what kind of impact will result from our livestream of the new demo – or your experience of same, what with it being available to play right now. Remember to set some time aside for zombies and the new trailer come Sunday...

    That girl falls way into the uncanny valley for me. Still, I really like this even just as it is. I'm sure the full trailer will be great, but this works fine on it's own.

    I don't think I've been this anxious for a sequel since the run up to Halo 3. I need to know how this story ends.

    I had one small problem with the demo, and I'd like to know if anyone noticed it too. It seemed to me that the aiming controls were MUCH too sensitive even on their lowest settings, and it just isn't as tight as the second game. It might be nothing, but my ability to actually hit enemies was affected by it.

    I didn't have a problem with aiming, honestly, didn't even need to lower the settings. The only noticeable problem I saw with the demo was a rather choppy frame-rate on the earth level. Considering it was pretty nil in the Sur-Kesh level, I'm guessing it won't be a constant problem, but still, it could be distracting if it happens often in the final game.

    I noticed that as well. It's also the first time that Mass Effect has done something of that scale, so I'm sure it'll iron out by release.

    So. Damn. Excited.
