Re: Mass Effect 2

^^ I realize that image is composed for dramatic effect, but does anyone else think it's odd that it looks like they're heading for the galactic core? You'd think they'd be coming in at the outer rim...unless there's a lone relay around a star high above the galactic plane...that'd make more sense.

At that distance a difference of angle could be as much as 18,000 lightyears....

Kind of pointless for most of us, since the DLC will be out tomorrow, but here's the launch trailer for Arrival.

Interesting...though I get the odd feeling this won't be as engaging as LotSB. Not that it matters, I'm still going to get it.

Re: Mass Effect 2

Am I looking in the wrong place or something because I can't seem to find it anywhere?

Nor I as of yet. (I'm looking for the PC version though with some of the previous dlc I've had to wait til about 6pm GMT before it appeared)

As did I (I'm downloading it right now), sort of. I kind of had to find it in a roundabout way, though. Had to go to the Game Marketplace, then find Mass Effect 2 by title, then go to a list of all its DLC to find Arrival.

Yeah, I've got it downloading now. The PC version must have been set to unlock around 6pm or something. Looks to be about 800mb, so that'd put it about on par with Overlord in terms of size IIRC. I think LotSB was closer to a gig.

Just taken it for a quick spin (along with the firepower pack which I hadn't got before now)

So, just in case

I would think they would have at least brought Seth Green back.

Well that'd cost more money and I imagine they blew the celebrity voice budget on Lance Hendrickson. Still, you'd think they'd be able to reuse an existing bit of dialogue as they did in LotSB.
