Yesterday was Valentine’s Day, but more importantly, it was also the release of the “Mass Effect 3” demo. If you haven’t given it a play, go do so right freakin’ now.
The single-player portion of the demo includes the opening of the game which was quite emotionally moving; if they keep up this tone for the rest of the game, “ME3″ might be darker than many were expecting. You’ll also get to play through a portion of a level on the Salarian homeworld involving Krogans.
The new co-op is also included in the demo and it is surprisingly fun. For a feature many were horrified to learn was being included, it has turned out to be an incredible addition so far. I can’t wait to see it in full glory in the release.
Speaking of which, if you pre-order “ME3″ on Origin, you’ll also snag a free copy of “Battlefield 3.”
