Mass Effect 2 Announcements

By Xsarthis, 7 years ago
There is very little that Bioware can do wrong in my eyes. I ignore glitches, revel in bad dialogue, and hum along to elevator music as my characters throw meandering quips at each other during extensive load screens. So to say, "X must be excited for the upcoming Mass Effect 2," is something of an understatement.

Well, my excitement has just grown ten-fold.

My general philosophy concerning most of the games I play is that I see them as interactive books. I care more about storyline and dialogue where most people are concerned about game play. A good story and decent voice acting can make me overlook a lot elevator sequences.

With this latest announcement from Bioware, we now know that they are filling their voice acting ranks with some serious talent.

* Martin Sheen (Apocalypse Now and Babylon 5: River of Souls) -- Illusive Man commanding Cerberus
* Shohreh Adhdashloo (FlashForward) -- Admiral Shala'Raan vas Tonbay
* Seth Green (Buffy and Robot Chicken) -- Joker
* Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck) -- Miranda Lawson
* Adam Baldwin (Jayne from Firefly and Serenity) -- Kal 'Reegar
* Keith David (Halo's Arbiter) -- Admiral David Anderson
* Michael Dorn (Star Trek TNG's Worf) -- Gatatog Uvenk
* Tricia Helfer (Caprica Six from BSG) -- EDI, voice of the "new Normandy"
* Michael Hogan (Colonel Saul Tigh from BSG) -- Captain Bailey
* Carrie-Anne Moss (Trinity from The Matrix) -- Aria T'Loak

Reprising their roles, Jennifer Hale and Mark Meer will once again be voicing the female and male versions of Commander Shepard.

But, for those of you not interested in voice actors or storyline and just want to blow some shit up. Well, how about this?

If you pre-order the game from Gamestop, you can get not only a full set of Terminus Armor, but the Blackstorm Heavy Weapon as well. Screw the Gravity Gun, I can make Black holes now.
