Mass Effect 3 will swallow your March (and this trailer shows why)

During last night's episode of The Walking Dead, a new trailer dropped for BioWare's genre-defining sci-fi game Mass Effect 3. And if this extended version of that spot is any indication, ME3 is going to keep you in the house and glued to your controller until summer.

No, Mass Effect 3 is not the first game to offer an occupied Earth that only you, the player, can bring back from the brink. But the Mass Effect series is to science fiction games what titles like Skyrim and Fables are to sword-and-sorcery games: an evolving experience that customizes itself of the fly and unfolds according to choices you make. Plus, it's a whole mess of fun.

My favorite part: the high-pitched tone that rides under the first 1:30. The end of the world would make your ears ring.
