July 23, 2007 - Mass Effect floored us at this year's E3. In a behind-closed-doors session, BioWare showed off a new mission from its long-awaited role-playing game. The E3 demo showed off the real-time combat system, the new and improved galaxy map, and introduced us to Urdnot Wrex.
Wrex is a Krogan, a powerful race on the verge of extinction. A few hours after joining up with your party, Wrex and our hero, Commander Shepard, have a disagreement. The potential results of this conflict left everyone in the room stunned. If we ever had doubt about Mass Effect, it was wiped away at E3.
Following the private demo, BioWare President Greg Zeschuk went on IGN Livewire to show off Mass Effect to the public. The demo focuses more on the combat than the RPG aspects, which saves future Mass Effect players from having a major plot point spoiled several month's before the game's release.
