Fans of the Mass Effect-trilogy received a special treat over the weekend as 'Honest Game Trailers' decided to take a few humorous jabs at the iconic space opera. The 14th episode of the web series was uploaded to Smosh Games on August 9, 2014.
Jon Bailey once again narrates a parody trailer that takes a jab at the plot holes of the trilogy along and story elements along with moments that fans have found to be annoying (like slower than dirt elevators). The trailer also took the time to mock the game's emphasis on personal choices while describing each major character encountered by ridiculing their flaws.
The trailer also took the time to note the players many romantic encounters by stating,"Make love not war as you live out your greatest Captain Kirk fantasy by porking alien babes. Live out your greatest Captain Janeway fantasy by doing the same thing as Female Shepard. Or live out your inner George Takei by getting it on with the galaxies most eligible bachelors."
No parody of the Mass Effect trilogy would be complete without mocking its controversial ending were no matter your choices in the previous three game, Commander Shepard dies at the end (spoiler alert). Instead all the players action will only detrmin which Instagram filter is plastered over the screen.
As with previous episodes, they also took a few jabs at Electronic Arts and its poor reputation among the gaming community.
