IGN’s April Fools Is A Classic 80’s “Mass Effect” Cartoon
IGN has become legendary for their iconic April Fools Day pranks that have exploded across the internet annually. There’s been The Legend of Zelda, Halo, and Harry Potter. Now the latest lucky victim is BioWare’s Mass Effect series transforming into an 80’s style Saturday morning cartoon.
Watch in awe at Shepard, Garrus, Mordin, Diana Allers and the rest of the gang become an 80’s style cartoon, completely with cheesy music, art styling and some facepalm worthy writing. At least Mass Effect fans can’t blame BioWare for this ending.
Red Band Trailer: Ted - July 13
Directed by Seth MacFarlane, written by McFarlane, Alec Sulkin, and Wellesley Wild. Starring Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Giovanni Ribisi, Patrick Warburton, Joel McHale, and Seth MacFarlane.
Somewhere between Paul and Wilfred lives Ted. This trailer isn’t as funny as I was expecting it to be but I do think it has potential. MacFarlane’s incorporation of talking animals into his cartoons works because they’re cartoons and it’s easy to suspend disbelief, I’m afraid that’s going to be more of a challenge here. (And probably why the marketing points to TedIsReal.com.) Also distracting is the fact that Ted’s voice is very similar to Peter Griffin. For now I still plan on going to see this one and am generally excited for MacFarlane’s first feature attempt.
