Ex: Two years ago, Commander Shepard died and Liara T'Soni fought in a desperate struggle against the Shadow Broker to recover her former Commander. Now that Shepard is back, it's time to even the score.
I love that EA keeps giving us free DLC!
Yeah, they keep pumping them out like Sheppard pumps alien chicks.
Bahahaha! wait, I boned the human
I dig the alien poonany
" don't matter, as long as its arcturian"
Free DLC? The first few were free but you have had to pay for the rest which will probably be the case with this one as well.
There hasn't been FREE DLC in months. This does look good, though. Everyone's been clamoring for this storyline to be released as DLC.
There has been hardly any free DLC for Mass Effect 2, but if this is free, I will be all over it.
What the hell are you on about....they have charged for 99.9999999999999999% of the DLC they have released, the only DLC that was free was Zaeed, and that was only with new game purchases as a way of screwing used game customers. AKA it was not actually free content, it was content they cut in order to coerce people into buying new. Same with the Shale DLC in Dragon Age, it was just DLC to screw over used customers and give the illusion of value. They even charged for the alternate appearance pack which is just weak. @betrayed gamer "wrong the free dlc was zaeed, the hammerhead, and 1 or two guns and i think some armor" No that was not FREE, that cost money, money in the form of the requirement of a COLLECTORS EDITION of the game, aka more coercion. Nothing is free and not 1 single piece of DLC in ME2 has been free. Like I said, it was known long before launch that Zaeed was in game...apon launch, not in game, instead it's DLC. I happen to have the collectors edition. But I paid $20 extra for it, so I certainly don't consider any of the cerberus network DLC free. That is the reason I bought the C.E, because I knew it would save me money on DLC later on, which I refuse to buy.
wrong the free dlc was zaeed, the hammerhead, and 1 or two guns and i think some armor
- Zaeed - Normandy Crash Site - Cerberus weapon/armor - Arc Projector - Firewalker Pack. That's what came "free" with the Cerberus Network, which did not require any collector's edition, just a new copy of the game.
""free" with the Cerberus Network"= Oxymoron, the cerberus network was $15 by itself or you have to buy the C.E, which cost $15 more... I repeat; it was not free. If you are claiming you did not have to pay for it you must have pirated the DLC, because like I said, you need the cerberus codes which did cost money. SO you had to pay for it one way or the other. EDIT: It seems you are right *scratches head* so wtf is the point of the C.E....I thought it had DLC codes the standard edition did not....a EDIT 2: Yep bioware tricked me good, I payed $15 extra for the C.E...for 1 in game armour set...
No, you did not need the collector's edition to get the Cerberus code. Whoever sold you on that got you good. All new standard versions of the game come with the code. Edit - Collector's Edition did have codes for unique stuff, but it was just the Collector armor and assault rifle. http://masseffect.wikia.com...
Yep, you're wrong on this one dchalfont. The Cerberus code was given to every new version of the game, not just collectors/limited editions, and is still given with every new version of the game.
Check up on your facts next time, dchalfont. I had borrowed and played through the entirety of the game, but then bought my own copy at KMart when it was on sale for $20, and it came with the Cerberus Code. Every version of the game has always came with the Code. Even if you're paying next to nothing for the game.
Finally! Hopefully we at least get a better hint at who is behind the Shadow Broker. I'm fairly certain this group will play a big role in the third game as well.
i traded mine in :'(
I hope it release before Halo:Reach.
Awesome! I'll be DLing this!
So will I asap
More Mass Effect 2 DLC? Yes please!
they should just release one huge expansion
I agree. I would rather pay $50 or $60 for a whole lot of DLC instead constantly getting nickel and dimed. Especially since I'm not going to play it again until all the DLC is out so I can do one run through with everything.
+1 Expansions are old school. I'm sick of having to back up files so I don't have to re-download the suckers. Awakening was a breath of fresh air, expansion price tag 20-30hr game play, very much worth it. But the individual DLC's which collectively cost more...didn't offer anywhere near that amount of play time between them.
From the sounds of it they're planning on running DLC almost right up until ME3 hits, so I don't know if i'd leave it that long, there's already a tonne of stuff to play through.
I bet there will be an Awakening style DLC at some point that "bridges the gap". A $40 expansion to go along with everything else.
Don't count on it bud. it's simple math, they can make MORE money by releasing small amounts of DLC than by releasing a big $50 DLC. There is no way they are going to kill the DLC cow until ME3 comes out and the cycle begins anew...
hell yeah! been waiting for this DLC :)
Two years ago, Commander Shepard died and Liara T'Soni fought in a desperate struggle against the Shadow Broker to recover her former Commander. SPOILER MUCH? Please say no please say no
Um....... Have you played ME2? edit - no, they didn't spoil the game at all. They were talking about what happens between ME1 and 2.
No I didn't! nooooooooooooo they spoiled it? Why did those freaking pests put it under the freaking title?
Don't worry dude, it's not that big a spoiler, it happens in the first 5 minutes of the game...in the first cut scene. I'm actually suprised you haven't heard it already, it's the most epic start to a game, pick it up asap to avoid more spoilers
Don't worry, it's not a big deal. Play the game for five minutes and you will see this is a VERY minor spoiler. (and you should play it, because the game is awesome) edit: darn, beaten to the punch. ;)
Thank you guys I actually have it I just didnt want to play another RPG so soon. I'm happier now =]
Shepard dies in the very beginning of Mass Effect 2, and then the 4-part comic series takes over. Then the rest of Mass Effect 2 starts. This DLC is a "sequel" to the comic series.
I see a ME2 GOTY Edition in the future.
maybe i should try mass effect. i just can't get this bias off of me cause i grew up with jrpgs and it doesn't feel like a rpg to me.
Many people have their own conceptions of what makes an RPG. Especially when it comes to Western vs. Japanese RPGs. Like all other things in life, Mass Effect isn't for everyone. It's still a great RPG series, though, which draws a ton from one of my favorite RPGs ever, Planescape: Torment.
Treat Mass Effect 2 like a 3rd person shooter with RPG elements. You won't be disappointed. GOTY for sure.
This sounds pretty cool, but I'd rather it be Liara's story between ME1 and ME2. Perhaps actually playing her and confronting the Shadow Broker. Still, I'll definitely play it. I played ME2 three times before any DLC released, so I have yet to play Firewalker, Kasumi or Overlord DLC. I started a fourth play through a few months ago, maybe I'll start that back up and play all the DLCs released.
Yeah i've still got to get the Kasumi and Overlord packs, think i'll get all three at once and give it another run through.
On my 3rd playthrough. Bought a MS point card for Cerebus Network cause I was playing it thru Gamefly. Sent it back and shortly thereafter found a new copy of ME2 at the AAFES store in Tampa for $19.99 with a new code for Cerebus. What a waste of $15 but oh well. I need to actually go and buy all the latest DLC so I can just knock it out on this playthrough. I don't think I could do a 4th playthru, not that this game isn't good; it is. GOTY edition for sure but I just can't sludge thru the game again a 4th time.
Story leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Started as just a posting of screenshots, but the poster changed the title so my announcement story got reported into oblivion.
Everytime I go away they pull me right back in. i just got the last DLC and havent beat it yet since I wanted to take my time and enjoy it since i ran through the main game in about a week or two.
i'm on my 2nd play through and i haven't gotten a single dlc yet. part of me wants to hold off until the wait for me3 gets super painful. whenever me3 is announced i'll probably do a thorough run through of both games, with all dlc, to set up my perfect me3 scenario.
hell yes! Looks awesome. Now I see why they set up that story idea :P Will probably cost, but I don't regret buying Kasumi and Overlord so will happily buy it.
