Re: Mass Effect 3

For those that don't know already: the first screenshots from the as yet unnamed DLC have been released via twitter. The first from Casey Hudson shows what looks like a casino area in one of the Citadel's wards and what looks like Wrex talking with a human male in Alliance fatigues. Possibly maleShep, or Kaiden. The second shot from Mike Gamble features a Krogan in what looks like a new armour design, wielding the mother of all sledgehammers on what appears to be Thessia. Indeed, I'm pretty sure the shot was taken on the MP Firebase Goddess map.

So, dose this mean the new SP DLC will take place on both Thessia and the Citadel, or that there will also be more MP DLC in addition to the SP? Time will tell.

Re: Mass Effect 3

Someone's data mined the latest patch. Info points intriguingly to a new co-op game mode where players can team up with other online players to complete actual story-based missions. That would be pretty interesting.

Re: Mass Effect 3

^Yeah, I've been looking at that, but so far (short of data mining it myself) I can't find any actual proof. As far as I can tell it's all based on one person's word.

Still interesting if true. I'd always thought it'd be fun to have your decisions in the SP campaign reflected in MP, but I could never figure out a good way for them to implement it. I mean what if (like most players I imagine) you have more than one Shepard? Does everyone on the MP team get stuck in one person's person canon for the duration or does everyone experience a slightly different mission?

Nice idea, but I'll believe it when I see it.

Re: Mass Effect 3

The Citadel and Reckoning DLC has been announced and are to be ME3's final DLCs. A lot of this was leaked several months back (as usual) but it's nice to see some things officially confirmed. I know it's sad and ultimately meaningless, but I love that Shepard is getting a residence on the Citadel. I know there was something similar in ME1, but I never got that DLC. Bit of a pipe dream but it would be very cool if it features keepsakes and trophies from old missions, with differences based on your savegame.

The MP DLC just looks like some new kits and weapons. The 'Geth Juggernaut' was IIRC an enemy from ME1 (basically a slightly smaller Prime), the 'Alliance Infiltration Unit' just looks like a re-use of EDI's/Dr. Eva's alt appearance, while one assumes that the Talon Mercenary is the Krogan with the enormous hammer. One can only hope that the Cabal Vanguard will be a female Turian.

No sign of the supposed narrative co-op mode that had been rumoured. I may yet be proven wrong, but I never was terribly convinced by that myself. The supposed source from that one looked dubious at best.

[EDIT]

I'd say that this is pretty solid confirmation of female turians in MP.
There's also a few more screenshots of the Citadel DLC up on the official site. From they synopsis it looks very much like that mission they cut from the main game involving Emily Wong. One can only hope this means they'll un-kill her...?
The new enemy looks interesting. The armor and equipment looks human so it could just be another Cerberus type, but the colouration and lack of markings makes me think these might be proper Alliance black ops.

I wonder how this is going to work with existing saved games. Is the Citadel still available during the "DLC save"? I thought it was already locked off at that point.

^No, IIRC the autosave puts you just before you initiate that attack on Cronos. The lockout happens when you try to travel *after* that mission.

Re: Mass Effect 3

Gotta love that many people will d/l this DLC and do it prior to going to London - Yes, we're taking our mighty war fleet to Earth in a desperate pitched battle to save the galaxy, but fcuk, first I'm going to redecorate my apartment that will be blown up soon anyway......!

Next to them doing something with the endings my wish was for a squad-focused DLC - which is exactly what this is. Bravo.

Day one purchase for me.

According to Gamble they got Robin Sachs' dialogue done prior to his untimely death, hence Zaeed will feature and it'll probably be Robin's last released work.

Well, it's not like the plot lets them do it afterwards--!

Oh for frak's sake, stop with the damn $15 DLCs, Bioware! That's ridiculous! Still haven't gotten Omega either because of that. You just know they jacked up the price on these to cover the cost of the voice actor fees...

I don't understand. Is setting the price to cover the cost of production somehow an anomaly?

$15 for 4Gb of new content.

I can live with that!

We know it's more than 2 GB - is it actually hitting the 4 GB mark?

And remember everybody, this is the Bioware who sold Awakening as DLC for $40. $15 is a steal compared to that.

Re: Mass Effect 3

Because when I can get a year old full game bundled with all its DLC for half that price from a Steam sale, $15 for what's essentially a single evening's worth of entertainment is a complete rip-off.

Re: Mass Effect 3

While I agree the price is a bit on the steep side for DLC, I don't think it's fair to use something that's been *heavily* discounted from it's usual retail price as a point of comparison.

That being said, I have to say that I don't think Omega was very good value for money. Had the station been available as a hub after completion and had Nyreen been recruitable I may have felt differently.
