BioWare Hints at Big Things in Next Mass Effect 3 DLC

HAHAHAHA!

Keep trying Bioware.
No one cares anymore, especially if you have Hack Walters and Clueless Hudson on board.

I've been enjoying all the other ME3 single player DLCs so I'll be purchasing this one on the release day. Can't wait for it!
Don't really care if it doesn't have any effect on the endings.

While we are at plotholes, why did the reapers, after capturing the citadel, not just shut down the relays? Are they the kind of guys who are really commuted to a full on war once they start?
The whole idea of having a full on war was dumb since the reapers were build up to be those super badasses.

Since their control of the citadel was through the indoctrinated Illusive man, it's possible they couldn't get him to do it.

It's also possible that it's something the keepers need to do, and they have no control of them at all at this point.

My god Bioware, I mean, my god. You're really trying to hammer this series into the ground. I mean, the asinine ending aside, clipping in as much DLC as you can into your story-based game is not the best idea.

Thing is, they did the exact same thing with ME2. And even though most of the DLC for ME2 took place after the ending it was all pointless too. Kasumi gave you an extra squad member during the game so maybe that was worth it. Overlord was completely pointless and had no impact on the plot. Ditto Firewalker. Arrival would have progressed the plot... except in ME3 they were too scared that the people who hadn't played it would be confused, so they glossed over it. And LotSB, while very cool, didn't really affect much either.

So the fact that the DLC is all set pre-ending this time around doesn't actually change much at all in the grand scheme of things. It's pretty much exactly what they did last time.

Well the second game is exactly why I'm bringing it up. Bioware/EA has serious issues in regards to what it prioritizes as DLC and what is part of the main game. ME2 for example, ended up being less relevant to Mass Effect 3 then the Arrival DLC was (although ME3 also helped by making both the DLC and the second game pretty close to irrelevant). And of course there's ME3's Prothean and Leviathan DLC which are incredibly relevant to the main story. It's just an incredibly underhanded and dishonest way to sell your story-driven RPG ('hey here's the main game, but if you want the relevant plot details buy the DLC!').

That is a good point, again, it's all "speculation" at this point really.

And it all comes back to: Why would they even need the whole activation thing if the "Lord of the Reapers" was on the Citadel to begin with? It begs the question once again.

That... accursed, Deus Ex Machina Child! Well, what is done is done... it's just frustrating to look something you once adored crashing and burning so badly just at the finish line. The coherence is just as solid as a spectreal ghost in another dimension from our own.

Now THAT idea was ****ing stupid. -_- It should have made sovereign redundant. I like to head canon that away with it just being in Shepards head personally. Not full indoctrination theory but it being the reaper collective mind talking to him through the near by reapers, not through some citadel generated hologram.

But there were a bazillion reapers around earth and the citadel was there for hours or even days and I highly doubt they could not assume direct control of the keepers, even if they were the only way shut down the network. The only thing that kinda makes sense in the weird internal logic of me3 would be that the star brat didn't want them to.

My friend pointed out that the council could have permanently deactivated it but I highly doubt they would throw away a weapon that powerful

But since the Keepers are constantly repairing and fixing stuff, and the Council Races don't even know how they work, you'd think they were preprogrammed to preserve this function, even should the races on the citadel discover it and deactivate it.

It is stated numerous times throughout the games that The Council do not know how to operate the Citadel, past a few basic things. And they have no control / do not interfere with The Keepers in any way shape or form. They just let them do as they please.

Nihlus2:

The thing is... 1 reaper dreadnaught managed to get inside the Citadel before it locked up in ME1, with only a small Geth fleet... and no controls over the Citadel whatsoever. How would multitudes of them against the same citadel fleet that was steamrolled in ME1 fare any better in ME3, against heavier firepower and world darkening numbers?

Not quite. The whole point of the conduit (as I understood it) in ME1 was so that Saren could get to Citadel Control before before they realised they were under attack. Once he did that, they couldn't close the arms in time. ("The arms aren't responding!!! Evacuate the Council!" Or something to that effect.) Reading between the lines, over the course of ME3 it seems that the allied forces do develop ways to hold off the Reapers (otherwise the entire galaxy should collapse within a week), so that may also play a part.

Ah well, I ramble on... appologies. Just loved ME1, and it feels like it was mostly overlooked or skimmed over, like they had a whole new idea for the direction things were going with the third instalment.

Eh, rambling is fine. It's nice to have intelligent conversation on these topics - BSN (which I also frequent) is still a nightmare. I agree that ME3 went in an unexpected direction in some ways, especially the ending, but the writer in me tends to automatically fill in any plot holes to such an extent that I don't always notice them! I still like ME3, but I do wonder to what extent that is because I've decided to like it... (I'm still gutted that we didn't get to blow up Harbinger or any of the other Sovereign class Reapers...)

And yet....that ending.

I kid! I kid!......kinda. See even though the ending had it's issues that's the problem regarding the DLC, the problem for me is that it was THE ending y'know? They can release DLC but in the end none of it affects the overall ending of the game that I've already seen. Makes it kinda hard for me to be that enthused about the DLC, as interesting as it sounds.

Exactly what I was going to say.

This story arc is already over. So to keep shoehorning extra unimportant bits into it just seems like a waste of time.

I wish I could get excited but I haven't bought one single-player DLC for ME3 since "The Ending" (or whatever it was called) back in May.

I'm not going to rip on Bioware but what's the point? I wish I felt differently. I hoped some time, other games, and having a life would make me change how I feel about the ending. I don't. It certainly does feel like a waste of time, for me at least.

Now, if they had made a better ending that made me want to REPLAY the game again and again.... I'd be psyched. But I'm not so I won't.

Yeah, somehow I missed the clunky final boss fight. But I would have settled for Harbinger just uttering a single -sentence-. I think what I miss the most about the direction is that... through ME1 and to some extend ME2, you had a sense of urgency of the mission, but it was still ambigious and left for you to explore and invest in. ME3 was very much a straight forward mission given to you in known territory - being a diplomat and unite the galaxy. The scene had already been set in ME1 and ME2 for that... so I was mostly resolving, not the delving deeper into part, nor actually connecting with the planets you were aiding. The Cerberus sidearc was interesting to some extend, but it neglected the whole Reaper thing as sort of a "status quo". Whereas I had thought we would look deeper into the whole Reaper thing........ and not by having a Deus ex Machina throw the whole Reaper Glosery in our face in the last 10 min. Nothing to explore, just a lot given to you along the linear road.

Exploration is probably the main issue. It just felt so linear. That and 31 fetch quests (mmo style) and 8 actual missions with dialogue etc. can just burn in a purgatory in all honesty.
(ME1 and ME2 had 30+ actual side missions, vs 8-9 in ME3, and the total mission when put together still gives off less for ME3, when the fetch quests are taken into the equation).

There's a lot of tiny things that keeps bugging me. It's not so much about the game and being a fan of it, it has at this point boiled down to being a sugarcoated game that would have been treated much harshes if ME1 and ME2 did not give it value... I don't think it's a good way of thinking to rely on a game to not stand on its own merits and excel. And if you strip away Rannoch and Tuchanka, I cannot think of much positive to say about the ME3 experience (granted those two arcs had some really good moments in them).

It is all oppinion based though, appreciate to see some other people's point of view on it!

actually, you should get it. it's great! just... you know, stop playing when you hit the liberation of earth, put your fingers in your ears and yell: and then the reapers got killed and everything was perfect forever!

To be honest, the suck sets in some way before there.

If you get Mass Effect 3, just pretend it's a pretty good multiplayer horde mode game with an interesting but flawed progression mechanic, and ignore the horrible wart of a singleplayer campaign hanging off it.

Y'know, just like all those other EA games like Battlefield and Medal of Honour.

that's a little harsh. what was so bad about the rest of the SP? I liked it! It wasn't perfect, but calling it a horrible wart is a bit strong...

Basically, everything including Cerberus was stupid. They go from a tiny insignificant terrorist organisation in the first game to a galactic superpower that the combined might of the Citadel Council proves incapable of dealing with, who are capable of successfully attacking the seat of galactic government itself, with an infinite swarm of cyber-goons, despite literally every project we ever see them undertake fail and/or bite them in the ass.

Everything involving weeaboo space ninja wankmatter Kai Leng was double stupid. That's the sort of character that thirteen year olds write as their self inserts for Bleach fanfiction.

That always struck me as a bit odd as well. Sure they explained how they got the body count for the "army", with the whole experimental indoctrinaton thing. But an army still requires funds... LOTS of it. And it clearly stated they already spend quite a significant amount in ME2, just bringing Shepard back, so unless Harbinger broke his retirement fund and sponsored them, I am not really sure how they could do this. Suspension of disbelief only gets you so far. Not to mention that they had 6 months to prepare the facilities to produce this private army's equipment... was cerberus preparing for an invasion in advance? Possibly, but the funds are still questionable.

a god child from the stars did it

Seeing Bioware squirm really brings a smile on my face.

It's proof that you can't develop crap all the time and expect people to swallow it everytime.

Innegativeion:
I don't see why Bioware doesn't just make an alternate ending DLC at this point. They had THEIR shitty conclusion. I don't care if they even plaster "THIS. IS. NOT. CANON." All up and down the thing. If they made a quality conclusion and released it as DLC, of course there'd be a huge hissy fit over it.

There's no denying however, it'd be THE best selling DLC of the year.

I know it, you know it, I can't perceive Bioware not knowing it.

The old "New-Coke-Bait-and-Switcheroo," eh?

I really don't get the hate you all keep spewing at BioWare anymore. Yeah, the ending sucked and for some of you even the free fix can't dilute the awfulness, but there's a time to let go. All you saying the DLC doesn't matter because we know how it ends are just being whiny. Should we be skeptical of the quality? Yes, so wait for reviews. I did that for Leviathan and Omega and I was satisfied with the little adventures they gave.

To use your logic: Why should I care about The Hobbit? Bilbo was in LotR writing "There and Back Again" so I already know the ending. Answer: Because it's a new adventure with new places and people. Kinda like ME3 DLC.

OT: Citadel huh? This'll be interesting. Let's just hope they can keep Starbrat out of it.

yeah, I guess I gotta give you that one. corporations sponsoring cerberus to revive shepard and stop the collectors... alright. cerberus then waging war on a galactic scale with obviously more expenses and going skeletor-level Evil and none of those sponsors backing out... I'm not buying it. maybe because they started turning their soldiers into cyber-zombies, they only had to pay wages until the soldier was cyber-zombified and then... alright, no. it's stupid.

Unless it is a new ending, I am not very interested.
If they release Mass Effect 3, The REALLY REALLY REAL ENDING edition for free, then I'll consider maybe, perhaps perusing Bioware products once more.

ITT: People still butthurt about ME3 ending.
It's been 9 months, it's time to stop sulking and get over it.

I'll probably be getting this DLC, I actually enjoy Mass Effect. I like running around as Shepard, blasting space zombies away with my biotics. It's fun for me. If I can get more of it, I don't see why I shouldn't get this DLC. And if it has a cohesive plot, all the better.

Because ARTISTIC INTEGRITY

Sorry Biosware. Your Omega DLC was short and terrible. It was also very expensive. I will not be buying anymore DLC from you. I gave you the benefit of the doubt, 2nd chances and even defended you. Not any more.

I really don't get the hate you all keep spewing at BioWare anymore.

It's not just about Bioware or ME3 anymore. It's about a company that has run its IP's into the ground, either dismissed or disenchanted a large portion of its staff, and is essentially being used as a corpse puppet by EA to flag the bones of franchises that were killed off by the latter's mismanagement. There's a reason why EA is considered the scourge of the video game industry, and their treatment of Bioware is just further proof of that.

It doesn't make me mad or whiny to expect better from a company I once supported with my own money. They once created some of the best RPG's in the market, yet their last three releases have been critical fan disappointments and underwhelming earners. I see no problem with calling the company (and their publisher out) for their problems. Whether it takes nine months or two years to get that message through to them isn't the issue. They are a public company, and their fans should demand better when they screw up.

The only thing Bioware has shown over the last nine months is that they'll still stick their fingers in their ears and drown out any negative complaints, while telling their friends in the gaming industry that people just didn't "get" their "artistic integrity". As they say, pride comes before the fall.

To use your logic: Why should I care about The Hobbit? Bilbo was in LotR writing "There and Back Again" so I already know the ending. Answer: Because it's a new adventure with new places and people. Kinda like ME3 DLC.

That's a terrible analogy. One is a prequel, the other isn't. The main characters (of both The Hobbit and LOTR) are still alive and well at the end of that franchise. LOTR didn't originally end with the main character being forced into a no-win situation and having to pointlessly sacrifice themselves, all while it was implied that the entire universe was destroyed as a result of his actions.

The ME3 DLC is pointless because it means nothing to the overall resolution of either the plot threads or overarching franchise, nor does it have any impact on the silliness and "shaggy-dog" nature of the eventual resolution. Aside from the fact that Omega was a lackluster three-hour trip through monotonous corridors and bug-filled cutscenes, Shepard still dies in the same hamfisted way every time, regardless of what actions you pick within the individual missions.

I could say the same thing about the "complaining about the complaining". It's even worse than the original (majority) of players who disliked the game.

Yes, why don't you stomp your foot and pout some more.
Everywhere I go, I see the same goddamn thing. Crying and bitching about the ending! "It's irrelevant because ending is shit!" and all that. Oh please. You people are acting like BioWare killed your puppy. Like they're personally after you and your fragile psyche, you feel the need to show your bitter disappointment and resentment.
Every mention of EA or BioWare anywhere, it's the same reaction: ME3 ENDING! QQ!. For nine goddamn months!
I've had about enough of this.
I don't care about your long dissemination of the matter or your verbose argument. It's all been said and done before, we know. Now put on another record. Maybe this one won't get broken.

Looking forwards to this dlc. Love all the support this game has gotten!

Loethlin:

Yes, why don't you stomp your foot and pout some more.

Do I look like I'm pouting? The only thing I've done is point out the hypocrisy in your statement. I was a member of the BSN when the game was first released, and the people who explained their arguments about the game itself (not limited to the ending) were well-reasoned and not prone to hysterics, while the people who "complain about the complaining" resort to histronics and passive-aggressive insults to make the same point over and over again.

Everywhere I go, I see the same goddamn thing. Crying and bitching about the ending! "It's irrelevant because ending is shit!" and all that. Oh please.

Every mention of EA or BioWare anywhere, it's the same reaction: ME3 ENDING! QQ!. For nine goddamn months!

It's a double-sided argument. Over the last nine months, the company more or less disregarded all of the articles, videos and discussions about the failings of the game with a blanket "you just didn't get it!" response. This was in the face of mounting criticism from all sides. It wasn't just the fans - publications like Forbes and The New Yorker, and major media networks like CNN were calling out Bioware for the shoddy handling of their PR and response.

The reason why people continue to complain (as far as I know) is that they are still hoping that Bioware will essentially "apologize" (much like it did for DAII) and retcon the ending and fix the supposed 'mistakes' in the game, but that's a needle-in-a-haystack chance at this point.

Ten months ago, the Escapist was one of the three biggest sites for the "Mass Effect love-in". The franchise could do no wrong in everyone's eyes, despite having a flop in the form of Deception. Now, the people who genuinely enjoy the game are the exception rather than the rule. You can't go on any topic without the overwhelming opinion being about how much the game failed to live up to its predecessors.

I continue to call them out because (a) it promotes good discussion, and (b) as a long-time fan who paid money for their products, I have just as much right as anyone to point out where they went right or wrong. Differing viewpoints are a good thing.

I've had about enough of this.
I don't care about your long dissemination of the matter or your verbose argument.

Then don't bother posting on the Escapist again, so I don't have to deal with your backwards attitude. I just told someone else the same thing a few weeks back on a similar matter, and they didn't have a response either.

You're not contributing to this discussion in any way, shape or form.

WOW who f*cking cares?

I haven't bought any ME3 DLC and unless this DLC is as good as Bioware is hoping it will be, I see no reason to change that. Them making a big deal about having the whole cast back is just annoying. In my opinion if you have a character in your DLC they need to be voiced, that is not something to be proud of it is a f*cking basic requirement.
But Hulick is back? GOOD because his stuff makes me cry like a little girl, I wont play the DLC but I will listen to the the music.

This "OMG U WOULD BE LIKE WOW IF U KNEW WHAT WE WERE GOING TO DO NEXT!!!!" has been going on for ages now. They keep on dick teasing, but according to my friends and reviewers none of the DLC is actually worthy of note. Lately Bioware are always promising the world and delivering something half-arsed.

I leave you with the usual rant
The Ending sucked / die in a ditch if you want the next game to be a prequel / Please Bioware don't make a Sequel

Tsaba:
here's to hoping the ending was just really a bad dream.

i think thats the only thing that would piss off people more than they already are.

crazyrabbits:
wall of text

So, wait, this is complaining about complaining about complaining people?
This is a thing that promotes a good discussion, in your opinion?
You think that if you'll be shouting more they'll apologise to no end, like with DAII, like you said, you'll be happy? You think the more you shout and the longer wall of texts you'll produce, they will start caring, finally?
So basically you just want to see people grovel? Is this a schadenfreude thing?
Yes, that's a very good discussion indeed.
See, I didn't like the ending either. I don't like it still. It's a very poor way of ending the story. But it's not the first or the last game that had a bad ending and the amount of vitriol it gets three quarters of the year after the release is just ridiculous. Top it off with people acting like their whole world has ended. That's not mature. But mostly, getting hung up over just a videogame is not healthy.
This is the first time I actually let my frustration bubble over and I commented how this whole mess is annoying to me.
You jumped on the chance and are trying to provoke me into an argument. It sort of worked, I guess, but, eh. I still really don't care about the issue anymore. You'll get all preachy on me anyway, and write another War and Peace and I will still be annoyed that you did, because you are not saying anything new.
Please, just find another person to unload your frustration on.

Well I'll be surprised if this doesn't confirm the Indotrination Theory, surprised and very disapointed...

Loethlin:
So, wait, this is complaining about complaining about complaining people?

Congratulations - you've proven that not only are you a troll, and that you'll ignore legitimate arguments, but you have no idea what you're talking about.

You think that if you'll be shouting more they'll apologise to no end, like with DAII, like you said, you'll be happy?

It's not what I want, per se, but what the majority of people who played the game (which, if the initial response was anything to be believed, constituted a solid 90% of the hardcore, forum-visiting, fanbase) wanted. Incredibly poor job of trying to twist my words around, but thanks for trying.

As I said, you've either been willfully ignorant, or just outright missed, nine months of the developer passive-aggressively attacking their fanbase for "failing" to understand their vision of the game. This is why you still see the fanbase up in arms - no matter how times someone tries to defend the game, it gets the same points (which the company has, to date, never bothered to address). It's not my problem if reading comprehension isn't your strong suit.

But it's not the first or the last game that had a bad ending and the amount of vitriol it gets three quarters of the year after the release is just ridiculous. Top it off with people acting like their whole world has ended. That's not mature. But mostly, getting hung up over just a videogame is not healthy.

That depends on what your definition of "hung up" is. I don't blame people for investing up to 5 years in a product, only to watch as the (original) ending implying that the entire universe had just been destroyed by terrible writing. It's only natural to be angry and feel frustration towards the people who created it, especially when they seem to outright ignore the arguments for making the game better and keep pushing the same old "artistic integrity" response.

You'll get all preachy on me anyway, and write another War and Peace

Please, stop your crying. If three paragraphs of text is too much for you to read, get off this board, as I suggested to you earlier. You're still not contributing anything of substance beyond stupid, snippy comments, and you'll just go on crying about how I'm "so wrong" when you can't even defend your own position when you get called out on it.

crazyrabbits:
More bitching

Dude, seriously. Who's crying here. Read what you've written.
Oh, and why are you accusing me of trolling? I expressed my opinion, you got hung up on it. I think you maybe should relax, you know?

Loethlin:
Dude, seriously. Who's crying here.

The fact that you ran here immediately after I posted to give me another one of your pithy comebacks says volumes about your mental state right now. You still have nothing to say, and you'll continue crying. Please, answer the points I raised instead of resorting to more garbage like what you just posted.

It amuses me.

Dude, seriously. Who's crying here.

Or I happened to be online. Funny thing is, you ran straight back, too.
And no, I'm not answering any more of your crying. This is boring. You are boring. And trying to provoke me. I think maybe some chamomile tea would be good for you.
No, I'm not playing anymore.

Loethlin:

Sure. If that's what you want to believe, go for it.

You started this conversation by writing a blanket statement that everyone who had a problem with ME3 is "butthurt", despite the majority of posts giving well-reasoned arguments why this is the case. When someone called you out on it (me), you resorted to lame insults, trollish remarks and a general misunderstanding of what you're talking about.

Now, you're trying to save face by trying to cast me as a crying wreck, despite the fact that I didn't even bother replying to your post for three days. I saw it the other day and laughed - I figured you'd continually come back and whine some more once I responded.

Again, if you're going to say anything, respond to the points I made above. Otherwise, get off this forum, because you have contributed precisely nothing to this topic.
