I know a great workaround to avoid all these DLC problems you've hearing of Bioware.

Include the stuff in the game and forget about all DLC!


Just make it free.

the reason they do this is to give a bonus to those people who actually bought the game, rather than illegally downloading it. I'm sure someone will make this available to torrenters too, but for now it's meant to be a perk...if it worked lol

Too late for that shop!
As to what ive read both PC and 360(Jtag) DLC are already up for grabs.
Bastids dont waste anytime....anyways anyone know when the goggles and the sniper rifle will be available?

Pumbli3402d ago

I mean more like, why not just include it in a patch or something?

I wasn't crazy about the idea at first until I realized something. I have Dragon Age on PC. I have Mass Effect on 360. I had to get Mass Effect 2 on 360 so I could use my previous save files. I thought because of this, I would miss out on the Dragon Armor but when I linked my EA account with my Live account/ cerebus network, it could see I had Dragon Age and gave me the armor. So I got two sets of new armor and a new mission (crash site) all for free. Call me a happy camper. :)

Its already available to torrent sites the Cerberus network served no purpose in that regard. I spent two hours on the phone with EA yesterday which the majority of that was being on hold just to get my PC ME2 CE Cerberus network code to work. An now I'm wondering well if I uninstall the game an reinstall at a later date how in the world will I get back onto the Cerberus network. Considering there is no place to log in it only says redeem when you click on the network.

my code doesnt even work period theres a lower case letter in mine which shouldnt be

BeaArthur3402d ago

Mine actually worked just fine but I think it's because my EA and Live accounts use the same email address. EA is stupid, just because they want hits on their website (or whatever the reason they decided to make this process so convoluted). If they had made the codes redeemable via Live instead of trying to make them accessible through the website this whole cluster could have been avoided.

I'm frustrated by missing codes & items as well!

Knock on wood (360 version). What's really annoying is that Shepard doesn't take his helmet off when he's wearing the Terminator Armor and the Dragon Armor. It really breaks the immersion. You can tell the EA was in charge of the pre-order bonus stuff...they just didn't take the details into account.
It's too bad because those armors are pretty good. Thankfully I didn't pay for them.

Great game otherwise.

BeaArthur3402d ago

I had the exact same issue. I don't use either armor because they have no customization.

catguykyou3402d ago

I noticed that too. Only time it ever really broke the moment for me was when Shepard was buying a drink and drinking it through his helmet. Other than that, the only problem I have with the game is the probing for metals....I have like the OCD issue where if there is a side mission and I can not easily ignore it, I have to do it. Every time I see a new planet, I have to probe it till the resources are depleted. I haven't even gotten to a part in the game where this task is explained/ what these things are used for. I get the hint they are used for research but at what point, I don't know.

i have a problem getting the armor idk how to do it on my 360
