I love this soundtrack.
May have done this this year, but what the heck.
“From pro-tein we are formed!”
Sheesh. Sometimes, heroes die and there’s no way to finesse it. Besides, I want a First Contact War tactical game.
*Unless you were willing to kill EDI. And the geth, although I imagine that wouldn’t loom as large in some people’s ruthless calculus. Personally, I wasn’t going to go down that road.
Here we go. I’ve been saving this second – and last – endgame run for a while. One last set of brutal sequences of sheer Hell on Earth, and then it’s off to Valhalla and its claw games.
I still think that I should have been able to bring along the thresher maw. And name it Barkspawn.
Hell of a run. Bastards managed to get me from laughing hysterically to tearing up in about five seconds, too. Trust me: you’ll know when.
I’m going to miss this game. I truly am.
[UPDATE]: THIS IS THE GREATEST DLC IN THE HISTORY OF EVER AND NOT EVERYBODY’S SHOWN UP YET.
See you guys tomorrow, probably.
I know that some of you have issues with the ending, but, sorry: gotta do it. Gotta give her some down time. I owe Shepard easily that much.
“Citadel,” meanwhile, is Mass Effect 3‘s last chunk of single-player DLC, arriving on March 5 for $14.99/1200 MS Points. The pack returns Shepard and crew to (where else) the Citadel, on a mission that will give players the “opportunity to reconnect with some of their favorite characters from all three of the Mass Effect games.” Well, provided you didn’t get them horribly murdered, we figure. You know what you did.
This is kind of bittersweet for me: I’ve put two and a half years into this series (obligatory reminder here that no, I didn’t mind the way it ended). At least I hear that it’s going to be hardcore nostalgia…
I’ve noted this before, but damn but this is still one of the most inspired extra bits in a video game that I’ve seen in a while.
You know how that goes. It does look totally sweet:
…That’s still good slang, right? And do I even really care if it is or not?
Last week Bioware finally revealed to us Mass Effect players what a Turian female looks like via screenshots from Mass Effect 3’s upcoming Omega downloadable content.
The three screenshots showed her from a slight distance and she was hooded. But Bioware has posted a new image of the female Turian on its Facebook page. The posted image shows her full face.
Yeah, I know that Garrus said that he saw one, once – hell, he claimed to have bedded one. But I figured that he was just bullshitting me.
Um, I mean my Mass Effect 3 character. Yeah. That’s what I meant.
PS: November 27th. Woo-hoo!
Somebody – I forget who – noted that Leviathan’s major strength was getting back to the creepy Lovecraftian insidious corruption feel of the major villains, and that’s true. The combat is there, but it’s not a violence-heavy scenario. It’s a couple of good hours of let’s-unnerve-people-a-little, though. Spooky, in other words; worth the ten bucks, and you get some nice War Assets out of it, too. You can pick it up without dishonor.
Plus, there’s the… well, you’ll know it when you see it. And you’ll keep activating it, too, because it’s kind of fascinating.
