XBL trailers: Mass Effect, Lost Planet out now

[UPDATE] X06 walk-through trailer of Bioware's action RPG and "Theater" trailer of Capcom's sci-fi shooter now available; Mass Effect trailer now on GameSpot.

Following just behind the latest trailer for Halo 3, which was released on Monday, a few new trailers for another pair of highly anticipated games are invading Xbox Live Marketplace.

Now available on Microsoft's online service is the "Theater" trailer for Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, the upcoming sci-fi shooter from Capcom. The 60-second trailer shows the snowy setting of the game and a large battle between opposing forces, and it features the tagline "Blood runs cold."

Fans of Mass Effect will be happy to know that a new trailer of the supersecret action role-playing game will be released this Friday, according to Chris Priestly, community coordinator at BioWare. In a post on the game's official forums, he says that after a long time coming, the X06 walk-through trailer will appear on both Xbox Live Marketplace and the BioWare Web site.

Priestly goes on to detail some of the trailer's contents in a separate post. "You will be seeing the video that was shown at X06 almost in its entirety, with only a very little filler material removed." He also says the X06 demos, which were given independently to media outlets, ran about 20 minutes long with pauses in action and replaying certain scenes. However, he did not give any indication how long the Xbox Live Marketplace trailer would be.

[UPDATE] The Mass Effect walkthrough trailer is now available to view on GameSpot, and clocks in at almost five-and-a-half minutes long.

Lost Planet is due in stores January 12. Mass Effect will be released sometime in 2007.

I just Hope those two other characters arent the only two in your team. There better be more to choose from like KOTOR. I also hope that they have lightsaber-type weapons in it as well.

If those planets in Mass Effect are actually fully interactive and explorable, then dang...this is going to be one of the biggest games ever

Man back when i played KOTOR it was he best gaming experince i had in a long time the story was just great. Then jade empire which was not as good but was so cool. I cant wait for this game if its anything like KOTOR or Jade Empire. This game will rule

Does anyone else think that the alien character in the trailer looks like a cross between Martian Manhunter(not the caped version from Justice League but his original appearance) and Ratchet from the movie Robots?

I've got to say Mass Effect looks like good fun, but I hope they improve a few things based on the trailer. The characters, while amazingly detailed, look really stiff in their movements and the faces look empty as far as expression.(They look like detailed maniquins in the trailer to me) The voice acting is something I don't like in this game as it doesn't reflect the production values of the rest of the game.(Though it would be acceptable as far as gaming voice acting goes) As far as things go this would be the only things I would really like to see improved, as long as they don't neglect gameplay for this.

Dude, they're going to need a new review system to score Mass Effect...

Hey guys, stop worrying about having the money to afford these games when they come out in early 07. You can spend your tax return refund on all these games, and still have money left over to renew your xbox live subscription. God bless America.

mass effect looking fantastic. possibly the enemy AI could use a bit of sharpening up, the enemies didn't even try and take cover when Shepherd threw a grenade at them....

Ugh... the Mass Effect video doesn't look so hot. Animations are herky jerky and the combat looks clunky and unsophisticated. I hope I'm jumping the proverbial gun here, 'cause I've been really looking forward to that one.

Mass Effect could be game of the year in 2007. Oh wait Halo 3 is coming out in 2007. Maybe RPG of the year in 2007, oh wait Fable 2 and Lost Odyssey are coming out in 2007?????????? CONCLUSION: 2007 IS GONNA ROCK ON THE 360, WHAT ARE U WAITING FOR GO GET ONE!!! (PS3 who, what, never heard of it!!!

Mass Effect is definitly the stand out title of these two. I watched the new trailer off xbox live and it not only looks impressive, but massive too, a great combination. Seemed liked the frame rate slowed down a bit during gun fire action, I hope they can fix this. Come on guys, 60 fps or more, this is the next -gen after all.

Mass Effect looks ri-goddamn-diculous! I cannot wait to get that game. I would stand in line for hours if I had to.

I am going to be broke in 2007. Honestly I really want a ps3 but at this rate I really don't see the need with all these titles coming out. Sony better hope they can get some of these titles on the ps3 too.

Mass Effect looked quite amazing. I'm a little worried about the auto aim feature because if it isn't done right, it could seriously hinder the game. But what am I saying? It's FRIGGIN BIOWARE. NO OFFENSE to the Halo lovers (I'm one of them) but I think BioWare is the best game company. That includes Bungie. Halo is great and I'm pumped for Halo 3. But Baldur's Gate: Shadows of Amn is one of my favorite pc games, Jade EMpire was fun, KOTOR rocked, they can't do any wrong in m book. I bought the 360 at launch when I heard they had support from BioWare. F&*% PS3. YOu guys see the article in the NY Times about it not being that great? And even this website showing the screens. Hahaha, Sony fanboys suck.

when will the new Lost planet trailer hit Game spot? I don't have access to a 360 where i am. As a side note, w/ the exception of the squeamish combat system (due to video possibly) this game looks amazing. I hope the galaxy is as large as they're making it out to be. Bioware, where did all this awsomeness come from all the sudden? Bioshock also looks good. GOOOOO Xbox 360!

In reference to Kill-U: I would hope they put out Mass Effect for both consoles, because then BioWare would get more $$....so more $$ to get more developers and make better games.
