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.

“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.

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…
