DSOGaming writes: "A couple of days ago, Mass Effect 3's "From Ashes" DLC was leaked via XBLA. Obviously, BioWare wasn't prepared for such a leak and after a few days, the company decided to clarify why it was not included in the main game and reveal some more details about it."

WTF there's already DLC? Wow that is so stupid, EA really is like Activision.

Bioware has been ripped to shreds, probably even worse than what Microsoft did to Rare.

"EA really is like Activision"

Yeah, but at least they make good games though.

MAJ0R3363d ago (Edited 3363d ago )

Not Bioware, at least not recently (Dragon Age 2). I even think that ME3 is going to be a failure review wise, they just can't find the write person to have non-cliche non-crappy writing.

Also Madden is just as bad as COD, I mean even COD changes more year to year than Madden lol

vickers5003363d ago

EA has Dead Space, Battlefield, SWTOR, Dragon Age Origins, Mass Effect, Burnout Paradise, and some other titles I can't think of right now (those are just the ones I own).

Activision has Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 4, and Call of Duty World at War (that one being arguable). Oh and World of Warcraft if you count it, but personally, I don't.

EA may be some evil, greedy sons a b*tches, but at least they put out good games, which is the only reason the core gamer puts up with their sh*t.

As for Bioware, it was just ONE bad game. Almost every dev releases a turd at one point or another, but one turd doesn't mean everything else they release is doomed to suck.

Exactly! You are right on the money, Vickers500. I feel the same way. It was just one game. They will learn from it, and make DA3 amazing.

"Also Madden is just as bad as COD, I mean even COD changes more year to year than Madden lol "

Not really , at least madden and ea's sports game change their graphic engine or update it once everywhile . COD doesnt even do that .

And still i can't speak much for madden , but their other sports stuff , fifa especially went through far more changes than the last 3 cod combined

john23363d ago

Yeah... at least in Fifa you can watch some hilarious videos thanks to the new engine for the collisions.

PS: Don't get me wrong, I love Fifa12 and it's waaaaaaaay better than the abomination called PES2012 (oh how the might has fallen). But the collision bugs are hilarious :D

First DICE (see the Battlefieldo blackout), now BioWare... what's going on EA?

StanSmith3363d ago

From the Article:

"The Prothean is optional content that is certainly designed to appeal to long-time fans, which is why he is part of the CE offering (the version many fans would be likely to purchase)."

Just who the fook do Bioware think will be buying ME3? It's pure milking and seeing how far gamers can be taken advantage of with microtransactions.

Screw it now EA & Bioware. I'm cancelling my preorder.

I'm begging you to go check Bioware forums. Some people are literally eating every crap Christ Priestly spews there. First he claimed that the Prothean DLC's been made after the game sent for certification (which most likely happened a couple of weeks ago while Prothean character's look was fully leaked more than 4 months ago and it looked complete in every way). And then he claimed that they weren't going to release it but then decided to release it for 10 bucks on launch for the longtime fans who couldn't get CE. And people are frigging THANKING THEM! What a goddamn joke. Some people are utterly stupid.

Megaton3363d ago

I disagree with their decision to make the Prothean the DLC character. The fact that a Prothean is alive is a big deal, so this should have been available to everyone. Not to mention that he was revealed in the story leaks from last November, so he was created long, long ago. Cut content through and through.

They should have made EDI the DLC. A mobile EDI is far less important than a living Prothean.

Blacktric3363d ago (Edited 3363d ago )

They should've made James Vega and Diana Allers DLC for God's sake. Oh but no one in their right minds would buy it then... What they did with the character and the content is flat out pathetic.

ninjahunter3363d ago

Let me get this straight, you make a character before the game is released, likely highly important to the mass effect lore in every way possible. Then you take this important piece and slap a price tag on it? F*ck you bioware. You may not care about my money alone, but its not just me that feels that this is a shamble. It would make me a bad person to buy this game because such a thing goes against my moral system. I have my $80 waiting right here for when you get your shit straight.

(yes, i know this is included in the deluxe edition, but that does not make this anymore Acceptable.)
