At this point I don't think anyone has high hopes for it in the first place.

On a completely random note is it just me or does the difficulty of the multiplayer seem to skyrocket whenever one of these "free" packs comes out ?

Geth faction have received several buffs since the first DLC

Geth Hunters will outright murder you if they catch you offguard. You like stun locks? Well there's many more from where that came from!

A WILD GETH HUNTER APPEARS!

Geth Hunter uses Geth Plasma Shotgun

Your turn:

Throw a grenade -> NOPE STUNLOCK
biotic charge -> NOPE STUNLOCK
ballastic blade? NOPE STUNLOCK
rocket launcher? HA HA HA HA.. STUNLOCK

and don't get me started on Rocket Troopers and their bullshit always first draw curving rockets

really, my current policy for MP is: hope for Cerberus, but expect Geth

So the extended ending is less than a week away. Okay. I don't know if I really care that much anymore...

Especially since... you know... you can see the fleet fighting when you limp towards your color of ending.

At this point I have no hope that this extended nonsense will improve anything. It'll just let Bioware at least pretend they were listening and that will be that. Oh well that'll teach me for buying anything Day 1 from Bioware again.

Well, if The Old Republic turns F2P, and ME never sees another expansion, I think we can consider the battle won.

Of course, we will only win the war by bankrupting EA, and that's going to take quite some time...

I'm still going with my theory that they wanted to separate the Squad from Shepard so they could do that spin-off game with Liara like they said they wanted to in the past. The others are just there to be fair to Liara fans that wont get a happy ending with Shepard.

But hey, if SWTOR goes f2p than I might try it out again. Though the walking... So much needless walking when I played it when it first came out.

It wouldnt be so bad if the mounts after 30 werent only 10% faster than the others =\

anyways, Liara fans are lucky to even have her in the flash backs, Everyone but Ash/Kaiden/Liara Romancers get screwed royaly, specially Tali fans.

At least they didn't get screwed as bad as ME2 Squad fans. Those guys were really let down because they could all die. I'm sure Bioware didn't think of the ramifications of allowing everyone to die in ME2.

Actually, that's something to give them credit for. You don't want to save anyone? Okay, cool. That's your choice. Now here are the consequences.

Yeah, I thought the Anyone Can Die (including you) nature of ME2's final mission to be one of the best parts!

Granted this decision also means that they could not significantly involve those characters in the plot without resorting to stand-in NPCs (this was even lampshaded during the Tuchanka mission in ME3 if you imported a game with a dead Mordin).

It is rather amazing how they could make those consequences really matter in ME2. Someone gets saved from an upgrade and you breathe a sight of relief. And then we have ME3. It was nice to see characters I saved (well at least most of them) come into play along the way. Did all that and then spectacularly fell on their face at the end. Be hard to screw up that bad intentionally.

There weren't any real consequences for saving them other than Tali and Garrus who were the ME1 poster children. Or any real benefit of saving them other than a EMS bump and a short "Hey it's you!".

Not saving Tali or Garrus elimitaes two squad mates. Not saving Thane gets either Kirahe or the councilor killed. Not saving Jack means captured children used and abused by Cerberus. Not saving Miranda means the experiments on reaper control with refugees don't get shut down. Not saving Tali or Legion all but elimiates the Geth/Quarrian peace.

Not saving Mordin? That excludes you from the best scene in the whole damn game. Yeah, it's not an in-game consequence, but screw that. I'd replay ME2 just for that scene.

That was a good cutscene, but I found the cutscene you get if you betray Mordin more emotional.

Agree completely; the scene with Mordin at the end of Tuchanka was so goddamn epic.

Well I'll let others go ahead and check it out since I expect it won't be worth the bandwidth to actually download myself . Maybe it can simply turn ME3 into a game with a bad ending rather than a game with a horrible one.

Apparently the Extended Cut adds a 4th ending.
