    Dude, what? The only "character plot" in ME2 that would involve fucking a lizard is A) entirely optional, and B) entirely about fucking a lizard. If you don't want to do that plot, do a different one and just be the lizard's friend instead.

    krogan vanguard can only charge down hill or across level ground, too many charges in a row leaves him doubled over gasping for breath

    I guess it's weird to complain about a class being overpowered when it can only benefit you but man

    You get more than one vanguard of average or better skill and you might as well set the controller down and take a nap

    i'm cool with most vanguards, but the human vanguards ARE kind of questionable

    But hey who knows, maybe they'll be packaging bug fixes and tweaks along with the DLC

    I would assume they have a system for tracking global gameplay stats, so they probably have a better idea than we do on just how much better vanguards are compared to everyone else

    Honestly, the multi being too easy has never been a problem, except on bronze, and thats easily fixed by going silver. I have never breezed through a silver match, tense competence has been the high water mark.

    Is this a month since the game came out? That seems early to put out free expansion dlc?

    Yep.

    Also fun is turian sentinel. Tech burst doesn't hit near as hard as biotic explosion but everything is shieldless, staggered and knocked down. It keeps the vanguard out of trouble mostly

    The youtube comments for the trailer video are hilarious.
    Sorry EA, you can try to buy off your few remaining fans, but you'll always be remembered as being the WORST COMPANY IN AMERICA 2012.


    I like the look of the new maps, and am interested to see what gethfiltrator plays like and if it will top the salarian.

  • KanaKana Registered User regular
    Turian sentinel is a really nice partner to go charging in with a vanguard. Vanguard keeps refreshing his shield, while sentinel just has so damn many that nobody can knock them down before he starts regenerating again. And then chain overloads to manage the crowds and a close-range revenant to stagger and/or kill anyone the vanguard doesn't notice

    If that geth vision/marksman ability not only lets you see guys through cover, but also cloaked guys, it would be a pretty handy class all on its own. No more geth hunters sneaking up, or losing a phantom in the confusion.

    Also considering that this pack is pretty much giving us all the things we wanted for MP, I wonder if mercenary enemy types really are a possibility.

    That would be schweeeeet

    I think it's pretty safe to assume that we'll see them released alongside the obvious Omega DLC. Hell, might even be free.

    I like that they're not fracturing the playerbase with DLC unlocks

    I keep hearing about this Omega DLC

    are there actually in-game files to support it like there were for Shadow Broker, or is this just speculation

    just speculation

    But it's just an obvious plot thing that they never resolve

    And considering they made a comic to illustrate those events similar to the one with liara, it seems reasonable to assume they'll resolve that stuff in dlc

    I was gonna say that there's no reason NOT to get it, but then again Krogan soldiers don't get an equivalent of adrenaline rush, either, so I don't know.

    It seems like Krogans would be more suited to having Nova instead of charge. Naturally, they can't get both, as that would be insane.

    Absolutely hilarious, but completely insane.

    But you already solved aria's problems

    I don't need to go fix more of her shit

  • KanaKana Registered User regular
    Well, the way Aria keeps going EVENTUALLY I will totally take back Omega!

    Not now, but in 3-6 months! Definitely gonna get on that!

    You kinda have to assume that it was intended to be hinting at DLC

    Although mercenaries as enemy types is just speculation I think, since it'd be one of the more obviously easy types of enemies to put in

    actually yeah nova would make a lot of sense for a krogan, with their insane amount of shileds, a full nova translates to about 12.4 metric fucktons of AOE damage

    I'd also like to see the Collectors put in as an enemy type.

    they have enough different forms that it would work

    instead of phantoms you get harbinger assuming direct control of a grunt
