    I think they should make a new alien in ME3 that is a talking nutsack (hanar related?) and a family of them is known as a quad.

    Or something.

    she vanished into the skyline and the game didn't move on

    I say that ME3 should have a hybrid power system.

    Tap the button/aim straight on? You get Instant Effect.

    Hold button and move aimer? You get arcing Travel Effect.

    Also, defenses preventing powers working is some bullshit.

    So long as they keep up with the standard set by LotSB. I mean that is now my standard for their DLC and what I want them to match. Meaningful DLC that actually adds to the game in a real and substantial manner. Having one to resolve the other "waiting" relationship in Kaiden (preferably with a bullet to the face) or Ashley would be fantastic.

    I'd love to see new DLC, and I suspect (hope) we will see something, but at the same time I have a feeling it all depends on how well ME2 DLC has sold so far. Most of the DLC sounds pretty popular from the looks of this thread, but this is hardly a balanced view of the population of Mass Effect owners. And I doubt Bioware has or will release sales figures for DLC. I could be wrong though, I didn't actually go looking at all.

    Also, Overlord was just there, it doesn't really have any substance, its just an excuse to shoot geth and talk shit about Cerberus (both of which are fine goals imho).

    I thought I read somewhere they were thinking about another alternate appearance DLC. Don't know how giving Miranda a red catsuit bridges anything, but I'll take it.

    Well...most of the ME DLC says on XBLs "Most Popular" page if that is any indication.

    So apparently Sony Russia has accidentally leaked that the game that is going to be revaled at the VGAs is Mass Effect 3. So much for all the speculation about a multiplayer title?

    Don't get me wrong, I really hope ME DLC is selling well, it only helps ensure that there will be more. I'm just pointing out the possibility that if Bioware is losing money on making DLC (by poor sales), they might not make more.

    Well, that does depend on budget too.

    It's same engine, new VAs here and there I guess, and some other things. Though I doubt they're spending more than some thousands on it.

    I don't know, it seems highly unlikely that they will be announcing Mass Effect 3. I mean, I really hope it's Mass Effect 3, but I'm going to be pessimistic about it, if only to spare me from having my dreams shattered.

    I ended up starting with a new Infiltrator rather than transferring my ME1 save (which was apparently a vanguard). It's been so long since ME1 that I wasn't sure I'd be able to remember the key events without having them explicitly explained, so I think that helped.

    But after a few hours I just found that Infiltrator felt slow and ineffective. Stealth wasn't really useful for anything except running away, and just using a pistol made me feel useless. So I restarted as Soldier, and woah. This just feels exactly like I was hoping it would :^:

    Damn it leits. You've cursed them now. It went to their heads and now they'll sit on the third "bridging dlc" for like five years delaying ME3 by a further ten years. See ya.
