Get your Mass Effect 2 fix today

Even though the launch trailer has been out for a few days, EA, BioWare and the NFL are hooking up to show the Mass Effect 2 launch trailer during the NFC Championship game today. Between the third and fourth quarters (approximately 6:40 p.m. EST), the trailer will be shown on Fox in all its HD glory (if that is, you have an HD TV). Also, anyone can earn a chance at shwag and chat and interact with the development team at BioWare’s games room at Ustream.

I know I have seen a huge TV ad campaign for the game across many channels as of late, so this will be the most expensive, and far reaching ad to hit yet. You can see it in YouTube quality and check out Chuck’s thoughts on it here:
