BioWare co-founder Greg Zeschuk has said that his team has "learned a lot" from Mass Effect's DLC disasters and that DLC for the sequel will be "pretty kick-ass".
free?? then ok!
Considering they are charging for it, it had damn well better be good. I'd be more impressed if it was free, no matter how terrible it was, the gesture would mean more to me than a paid for product.
i got respect for BioWare but this talk about DLC before full game even released is bullshít. All thanks to microsoft with this DLC crap.
um... I'm sure no one wants to hear how the DLC will "kick-ass"... I'm sure people would instead like to hear about how Mass effect 2 will kick ass. Bioware's biggest problems have been with expansion packs and now DLC.
They lied about the greatness of the DLC in ME1 so I am not stupid enough to jump on the Bioware fanwagon over the very same remarks. I will wait and see. They are the ones with something to prove. But some people though just keep putting their hand on that hot stove.
I don't think BioWare has to prove anything to anyone, DLC or not.
The problem is morganfell has never played anything outside of his ps3 so he probably doesn't know the greatness that is bioware. Bioware have NEVER made a mediocre game. I don't care about the dlc that much, as long as the full game is great. And Bioware doesn't disappoint.
You obviously do not realize the sad truth other people here have been embarrassed to learn... Whoops: http://i39.photobucket.com/... And Bioware has begun to slip. ME1 was hardly a technical masterpiece and their DLC that required you to restart the game was a joke. How about that Dragon's Age? How is that for changing gaming... Mediocre at best. They have lost their edge.
Nice set up dude, im pretty much the same BUT its my PS3 that is picking up dust and not my 360. Last game i bought was the GOW collection played it once on release day havent touched it since. Its a great game just havent been able to get back to it since most of my gaming sessions are on MW2,L4D2 and AC2 on the 360. Back to topic ,i mean the game isnt even out yet and they are already calming that the DLC is gonna kick ass......successfully release the game then after its out start talking about the DLC and not before.
i would be quiet if i was you http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... everybody, click the links and read morganfells comments...lol pure classics. anyway, cant wait for this game, and doubt i'll be buying the DLC aswell. 2010 is shaping up to be pretty special if you own both consoles
Still waiting for a developer to promote their upcoming DLC as "boring and not worth buying"... sigh, some day perhaps.
I don't agree with morg that BioWare is slipping as a whole. ME and Dragon Age are very good. As good as BG or BGII? Hell no. But few devs ever match their very best games. And their latest games have been as impressive and daring as circumstances will allow. I agree that the DLC for ME was an utter let down. Bring Down the Sky wasn't great and Pinnacle Station was TERRIBLE. And true, Pinnacle Station wasn't made by them technically, but it's deceptive to not come right out and say that. Anyway, I dunno if it's being with EA, but Dragon Age: Origins has a much much improved approach to DLC. And although I've soured on the idea of DLC, if we're stuck with it you might as well get it right.
Oooh a change in publishing decisions is your ammunition? It doesn't affect this situation one iota. You were just shot out of the tree. Also, thanks for revealing your new account king dong 1,2, and 3. I blocked them and your new account gets the same justice.
I'll be happy if Bioware can figure out 30 fps first.
so don't brag about the actual game but the content you have to pay extra for?........
ill believe it when it happens
This is a prime example why video games today are a joke. Bioware knows Mass Effect 2 will sell regardless... so why not push back a few features into some DLC, make a few extra thou in the process. N4G losers and Bioware huggers, don't even start commenting about DLC being developed afterwards, or left out due to time constraints, and how some DLC is free, because I know all of this. What the general public and casual gamers don't know, is a lot of these so-called "extra content", could have easily been implemented into the initial release. Why include entertainment, food and drinks into the plane ticket, when you can just get them on board, then let hunger and boredom do the work.
It will be even more kickass once the beta testing is complete on the RRODBox and the final build is brought to the PS
altough i dont normally agree with the turds that lurk in the loser zone, it could come to the ps3
Do they realise how ridiculous this is getting?
Yeah, not enough room on one dvd 9 so why not just make the extra tidbits dlc so we can justify it before the game is even released? This could have been a full fledged ps3 title for $65 bucks. No wonder Publishers choose Microsoft to be exclusive. You make more money when you rip people off ya know?
I would agree with your argument if it was accepted that ps3 owners DIDN't buy DLC...
blame M$ for this paid DLC madness.
PC will probably get free DLC. Again. Too bad ME2 isn't coming to PS3, I would love to see the visuals running on a proper console.
The second DLC cost $'s on pc too. Sadly only valve gives away freebies on pc these days, them and EPIC
Unfortunatly, if the DLC wasn't free on Dragon's Age, also by Bioware, then it's unlikely to be free on Mass Effect 2 (unless they include it in the package like before, with a download code). I wonder if they're also going to release an editor and mod tools for the pc, again like DA:Origins?
either way pc gamers now how to get the DLC free well dats what i did with dragon age
Stupid people here. Bioware is a big company what are they going to do most of the artwork is done already. Are they going to lay off there artist of course not they are going to put them to work on dlc.
maybe they could work on SEQUELS or even let's say ADDONS Oh my, they could even work on NEW IP But I said too much I guess, now flame me
Why would i flame you. For them to work on a sequel they need to know more about the what they can do with the sequel. A new ip you need to have a story or artwork done before you model stuff in 3D. Its is cheaper to let the artist work on assets for dlc then them working on a sequel or a new Ip.
this has nothing to do with your guys console pissing contest yet still have the urge to bring it up, this is a good thing because all the DLC that was promised for mass effect might actually happen now.
More like "up-ass".
Sweet, is it gonna be $15 and come out right when the game comes out like the Dragon Age DLC which easily could have just been included in the game? Also, why do people say this game is a 360 exclusive? I am most definitely getting this for PC, as the first Mass Effect was greatly superior on PC in graphics, frame rate, gameplay and controls, and will no doubt be better again since I can avoid those annoying scroll wheels they love to use in their console games.
It wasn't a superior version just optimized for PC. And guess what? It wasn't even ported over by Bioware. I have both versions and only advantage it had was the higher res. You sir are officially the 2nd pc fanboy of whom I know of.
what about the game itself? DLC! wow they just want the money. $60 game then $15-$30 expansion pack. am I the only one notice something not right.
I will forever know today's expanded content as DLC. Back when expansion packs were largely a tool of the PC, the term actually meant something. DLC is the bastard, greedy son of that period. Charge the same, give far less.
Damn straight. DLC often costs up to 15% of the game cost. If that is the case it should offer at least that % of extra content, each fallout 3 DLC was $15 aus, ( the initial game was $99), there should have been 8 unique hours of gameplay for that price....but there wasn't. Having said that, the fallout 3 DLC was some of the best value DLC there is, so the majority of DLC offers far less value. I wish the old days of PC expansion packs would come back.
