Bioware is known for excellent storytelling, and Mass Effect 3 does NOT disappoint. At it’s core the Mass Effect trilogy is all about heroism, family, and adventure. While other RPGs have made the promise of a “branching story line” based on player decision, none have come close to the level of complexity that the the Mass Effect franchise actually achieves. By now you’ve heard how it works, as the player progresses through the narrative he/she is forced to make a number of difficult game-changing decisions. I would venture to say that almost everyone that has played Mass Effect has had a slightly different experience, and that’s just incredible.
The actors on Chuck are gamers, both on the the show and off. Both Zachary Levi and Joshua Gomez use their celebrity status to infiltrate gaming conventions and studios alike. Two of the other actors on Chuck also played major roles in one of our favorite games of all time Mass Effect 2. In Mass Effect 2 Yvonne Strahovski played the role of Miranda Lawson, a powerful biotic and potential love interest for Commander Shepard (should he have the skills to warm her icy heart). On Chuck however, Yvonne normally looks nothing like her Mass Effect 2 Character Miranda. That is of course until now. Recently Yvonne’s character Sarah has been forced to go under cover to infiltrate the “bad guys”. Her look is remarkably similar to that of Mass Effect 2’s Miranda. So much so, that the writers and producers decided to throw in a line about a certain “suicide mission”. The line is near the end of the clip.
Oh yeah, and if you’re not watching Chuck you’re missing one of the most enjoyable action/comedies in years.
