Seriously?
Hahhah, ok, buddy. Have fun talking to yourself.

Case in point.

Listen, Loethlin - can I call you Loethlin? - it's okay to cry. Let it out.

No one blames you for being passionate about the ME franchise. It's okay to show a bit of emotion every now and then, but all this trolling and whining must certainly be unhealthy for you.

If you'd like, I can call a therapist on your behalf who might be better-suited to help you through your emotional problems.

Is this that last word thing?
And really, I'm not the one trying to provoke you here, for the last several posts I've been quite clear I'm not interested in this discussion anymore. I also said that I know all the arguments you've tried to present, because I do, I've already seen them all. So why don't you take your own advice? Be passionate, that's ok. I do see you don't have problems with letting your emotions out, but damn, you sure do have issues with keeping them in check.
And please stop saying I'm trying to troll you, I'm not.
You latched onto something I said, and tried to goad me into giving a damn for quite a while now. And then, you have the gall to tell me I care, because I happened to be online when you just couldn't let it go, after three days? Yes! How DARE I not share your view on this matter! The nerve!
I think that's enough.
Good day, sir.

I personally don't understand the criticism that "the DLC is not worth playing if it doesn't affect the ending", surely your enjoyment of gameplay/story should be found in the moment of experiencing it rather than what it means much later on. The DLC in the Mass Effect games are like minor episodes in a TV series, they may not have a direct impact on the main plot but they can still be enjoyable with what they do with the characters and world.

But hey, I loved the ending so what do I know?

Keep telling yourself that. It`s good to let out the emotion every once in a while.

I also said that I know all the arguments you've tried to present, because I do, I've already seen them all.

Is this a backpedal? I'm not interested in your nonexistent claims. You made an argument, and failed to follow it through. There`s no shame admitting when you fail. I`ve done it before - you can too.

I do see you don't have problems with letting your emotions out, but damn, you sure do have issues with keeping them in check.

Deflecting the blame is only natural when you feel threatened.

And please stop saying I'm trying to troll you, I'm not.

Something tells me you don`t understand what the definition of the word `troll` means.

Then back up your words instead of hiding behind stupid arguments and lame comebacks. You made a blanket statement, which I quoted (as part of a post, and responded to in a fairly civil manner) and came running back to try to defend yourself by posting nonsensical rambling remarks that had little in common with what I was responding to. Now you`re trying to change the subject and spin me as a bad guy, because you got your back up and couldn`t follow through when I called you out on it.

I don`t think message boards are for you. As I said, I can still refer you to a therapist if you want.

Take it outside you two!

OT:
As others have said, there really doesn't seem to be much point for DLC in Mass Effect 3 since it has a pretty damn definitive ending. And that's what a lot of people really want from this game, a new ending. The DLC just keeps Marauder Shields waiting a bit longer before you take him out and get to the same sucky conclusion only with maybe one extra line of dialogue.

I agree. I don't think things are really going to change until BW swallows their pride and admit they've screwed up.

They still seem to be in a state of denial (as evidenced by their behaviour over the last few months), and it hasn't won them any favors. With the exception of From Ashes (which was tied into the game's release), none of the DLC's released so far has made any impact sales-wise. From all accounts, Leviathan and Omega didn't sell too well on the XBox Marketplace/PSN.

Say what you will about the game, but it does have a sense of finality. Unless it's a post-ending DLC, it's not going to do anything to change the minds of the hardcore fans who weren't satisfied in the first place.
