  • I hope that this DLC is worth buying with expansive story content that complements the main game’s story, since I really Mass Effect series.

  • Fez

    you know the DLC for number 2 was awesome! so i have high hopes.

    This further speaks to the IT theory
    Shepard was under indoctrination at the end of ME3
    …. otherwise what new “secrets” are there to “unravel”????

      I’m not going to pretend I understood the logic behind what you posted.

      • Dc1

        Lol. It may be better not to know!

    Sadly only the MP was good in ME3… the story mode ruined ME as a series for me.

    • Locksus

      Even after this sub-par ending my jimmies remained unrustled. No, seriously, even after the slightly lackluster ending (which they improved with the DLC quite a bit) ME as a series is one of the best ever in my opinion. A weak 15 minutes can’t ruin the whole game. I mean that’s just stupid to think in my opinion.

  • Sovereign Gale

    Overlord really set the bar high for ME DLC, in my opinion. Hell, I enjoyed that DLC more than most of the actual main story missions. So, here’s hoping that this’ll meet or exceed my expectations. =D
