Breaking news: Mass Effect looks pretty

Mass Effect is in a brutal three-way video game cage match with God of War II and Super Mario Galaxy for the title of my most anticipated game of the year (with Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction waiting in the wings to tag in).

But I have to admit — every time new info, screens, or video is released, Mass Effect gets in some pretty lethal blows to Kratos’s gut and Mario’s groin (in my imaginary cage matches there are no rules!).

Five new screenshots for Mass Effect have been released and damn if they don’t look good. Ah, high definition visuals in all their glory.

Enjoy the screens in the gallery below.
