Mass Effect ...
On an insanely hot Houston day - ok, I'm exaggerating some, Nintendo decided to bring their Kirby Mass Attack snack truck to the Houston Chronicle to let passer-byers and Chron staffers brave enough to face this Houston heat play Mass Attack and cool off with frozen strawberry fruit treats.
The tricked-out snack truck is pimp. The Kirby skin makes it very, very easy to spot and even has enough goodies - aside from the killer frozen treats - to keep the party going.
As far as the game itself, which drops Tuesday, Nintendo had a few DSi XLs with the game for people walking past to try the game before it hits store shelves.
Missed this event? No worries. The Kirby Mass Attack snack truck will be in the Houston-area throughout this weekend.
Here's a mini-schedule for anyone who wants to check out the game AND get a tasty frozen treat as well.

Here's a few of the pictures from the event.
This weekend, I'm on the final act of Gears 3 and will have the review done shortly thereafter. I'll also be playing Dead Island, Deus Ex, Starfox 64 3-D and Resistance 3 this weekend. Oh and my pink friend Kirby.
So, what are you playing this weekend?
