Let’s end on a lighter note.

May have done this this year, but what the heck.

“From pro-tein we are formed!”

A. Because she’s DEAD*. (Spoilers)

Q. “Mass Effect 4: Why Isn’t Commander Shepard Coming Back“?

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.

No song tonight…

…it’s unlikely to be better than this anyway.

Mass Effect 3 : Citadel was an insanely good deal.

“The Fleets Arrive.”

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.

The Fleets Arrive, Mass Effect 3

I still think that I should have been able to bring along the thresher maw.  And name it Barkspawn.

Well, that’s the last of the Mass Effect 3 DLC.

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.

Downloading Mass Effect 3: Citadel DLC.

[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.

The final Mass Effect 3 single-player DLC: Citadel.

The final single person DLC for Mass Effect 3 will be coming out March 5th.

“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…

“Blasto 6,” revisited.

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.

…So, yeah, I’ve been kind of waiting for the new ME3 DLC to show up.

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?

Whaddya know: there ARE female turians.

Surprise, surprise, surprise.

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.

(pause)

Um, I mean my Mass Effect 3 character. Yeah.  That’s what I meant.

PS: November 27th.  Woo-hoo!

Finished Mass Effect 3: Leviathan this morning.

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.

Mass Effect: Leviathan coming out August 28th.

$10 bucks, at least two new boards, some back story… with any luck I’ll get some more resources for my second (and probably final) endgame.  I’ve been holding out for it.

PS: Best reaction EVER, from the comments here: “I really hope there are no Firaxan Sharks down there.”

PS: You know what would be cool? A strategic game set during the Alliance-Turian war.
