  3. FemShep Does A Dramatic Reading Of The Most Hilarious Mass Effect Tribute Song

  4. This Hurts You: The Mass Effect Honest Trailer

    Those elevators are no freaking joke.

    When we of the weekend editorial team aren't doing our actual jobs, there's an extremely high chance that we're talking about Mass Effect. We're also of the opinion that parody is one of the highest forms of affection, so we were pretty stoked that the always-scathing Honest Trailers set their sights on our favorite game franchise (on the Citadel). Yes, your favorite squad member gets skewered. Yes, they rag on the ending. Yes, "Captain Janeway fantasies" is my new favorite euphemism.

    Video games are awesome! So is makeup, and I'm sure I'm not the only lady who likes to wear her fandom on her face. If you've ever coveted Ada Wong's eyeliner, wanted to rock Princess Agitha's colorful cheek-dots for a walk in the woods, or dreamed of surprising your significant other with a sexy Shiala-as-just-emerged-from-the-Thorian look for date night, let me save you some time!

    Hey, it's more than we got at E3!

    The details surrounding the next Mass Effect game are still very much a mystery, but Saturday's BioWare panel shed a bit more light on what's in store.
