Final Mass Effect transmission is ... final


Last week we told you about those viral Mass Effect emergency transmissions and today we're semi-pleased to announce that the final transmission was posted. Embedded above is the "Final Emergency Transmission" and to be honest, we still have no clue what the point of all this YouTube video fun was for. Maybe it was Mass Effect's marketing team planting seeds of Mass Effect'ness into our brains and nothing more, but we've come to expect more from viral campaigns. But, in the end, we have three blurry and compressed Mass Effect videos. Yup, it'll do for now.

Viral Marketing works because people are curious . I am guessing from previews I have read that this is the first contact with the "ULTIMATE RACE OF GALACTIC EVIL" basically destroying everything in it can get its hands on. Its probably going to just be a cutscene in the game when you find one these guy's corpse and look at his camera footage (Halo 1 flood quarantine room style).
