GR - "Hardcore fans of Mass Effect 3 have known about the potential Citadel DLC for months now, as the information was datamined and released to the Internet, but nothing was ever confirmed. Until last week anyway."
Biggest piece of shit, this IP was my favorite this whole gen and they took a massive dump in my living room. Never buying another bioware product again.
...Yeah, you are.
Hopefully you actually stick to that, as I have. It's the only way they'll ever feel your dissatisfaction. Through their wallets.
buy used, still enjoy games without supporting developers directly.
I guess Shepard story will never get the closure it deserve. Oh well not like I really had my hopes up. Guess ill be passing on this dlc too.
No wonder the romances were so half-assed. DLC.
A developer not doing as good of a job as they should have or didn't bother implementing something, it doesn't automatically mean it was done with the intent of selling it pieced out to exploit the customers. Sometimes it is and sometimes it is not; I may not like BioWare due to how they handled the fans angry with the ending, but at least I don't see everything as "Something new that isn't free?? EXPLOITATION!! CUT CONTENT FOR PROFIT!!" as many seem to (not) think.
I have no complaints about my romance, as I stayed loyal to Liara throughout the trilogy. She's the only one to have a significant romance in ME3, as far as I can tell from the forums. Sucks for everyone else, though, because they all seemed pretty underdeveloped. Maybe that's because they were planning to flesh everything out with DLC, or maybe they just thought everyone would be fine with slop from the jump. Who knows.
After all that ending and DLC drama, do they really expect people to buy this? I mean, its been a whole year since they released Mass Effect 3 and apart from people playing multyplayer I can't imagine anyone going through that process of playing yet another mission with Shepard only to be reminded of the huge pile of crap that's the conclusion of the series. Seriously, if Bioware doesn't WOW us with Dragon Age 3 I doubt they can ever restore their reputation as developers.
I'll be buying it, I'll be playing it, and as it's the last piece of ME3 single player DLC, I'll be enjoying it and bidding farewell to the ME series on this generation of consoles. It is way overpriced, but the ME series is the only gaming series I have ever bought DLC for. Period. That is because I love Mass Effect. I don't buy map packs, or other such b.s. I own a 360 and PS3, and buy many, many games. But I never buy DLC, usually because by the time it's released, I've moved onto other gaming experiences. Mass Effect is to this point the one and only exception, and I have no qualms about returning to the ME galaxy one more time. I've been gaming since the days of the original NES in my childhood, so Bioware is doing something right if their games are the only ones I've bought DLC for.
I'm with you, one of the best series this gen, finished 3 when it first came out but jumped again to play the whole trilogy on my Ps3. I love my femshep.
So... Though I agree the entire series up till the third was great. Even a majority of the third was amazing, obviously the ending was horrendous. I just feel that they alienated the fans. They had a great chance to make things right but instead... We got the ec. Then leviathan... Then omega, all of which I never bought (save for the ec.. It was free) Anyway the ending sucked, was atrocious...
Yeah, Shepard and co. chilling out on the Citadel and playing detectives while the whole galaxy is being genocided by the reapers. You are fixing the game Bioware, you really are. LOL
It is possible that the conspiracy involves strongly Harbinger. If it is heavily Harbinger-vs-Shepard-related (like the vibes ME2 had at many parts) then I might buy.
highly illogical otherwise they need to change the endings for the simple reason of this: Sheppard: Harbinger i swear i will defeat you and your reapers! Harbinger:Resistance is futile. fast forward to the beam Harbinger:Sheppard where are you going? Sheppard:I can't win against you, i must run. Harbinger: awww i wanted to fight you sheppard T_T. fast forward to catalyst and sheppards decision to pick synthesis. Harbinger: all that bullshit and you did what i intended to do from the start?
@Burne. It's hardly illogical and it would be very easy to write a confrontation between Shepard and Harbinger have them clash and yet, allows Harbinger to still arrive back at the beam without detracting from it so long as you aren't completely incompetent at writing. Harbinger didn't want to fight Shepard, it wanted to preserve or kill him/her. It saying resistance is futile in a prior confrontation within ME3 won't render the beam run or the endings pointless.
I'm really on the fence about this DLC. Yes, I'm one of the people still somewhat bitter about the game's ending. I purchased the Leviathan DLC when that came out and absolutely hated it. Well, just like the main game, it was good right up until the final 10-15 minutes. It only served to further trivialize the Reapers, and in my opinion it again detracted from the once great lore of Mass Effect. I didn't even bother with the Omega DLC. I was still slightly bitter about essentially spending Microsoft points to get angry via playing the previous DLC. The plot of Omega seemed ridiculous to me, kick Cerberus out of the wretched hive of scum and villainy from the last game, meanwhile, yes, the Reapers are already here and they're reaping our planets... severely. The main game had this problem too though, acquiring and completing side missions and things seemed silly when you and every other sentient organic being were being targeted in galaxy-wide genocide. The Omega DLC was just a very exaggerated version of this. And then of course it just seemed overpriced. Now, this Citadel DLC... I REALLY do not want to allocate any more money to Mass Effect and then get angry/disappointed before the content draws to a close. The reason why I'm even considering purchasing this one is because it's supposed to really be focused on the characters I've spent so much time exploring the galaxy with, and supposedly it will even give us a little more time with our love interests before the contemptible ending to the trilogy. Will I give in and download this? I guess I'll find out soon enough, if I do... and it provides me with an experience that is less than desirable... I fear my resentful feelings towards Bioware will be at an all-time high.
$14.99...lol no thanks.
