Earth is burning. Striking from beyond known space, a race of terrifying machines have begun their destruction of the human race. As Commander Shepard, an Alliance Marine, your only hope for saving mankind is to rally the civilizations of the galaxy and launch one final mission to take back the Earth. Available March 6, 2012 on PC, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3.

Scant days remain until Earth's fate is in our hands.

Even though the Council won't believe us because

Let's talk about Mass Effect, quite possibly one of the most important science fiction universes of our generation. Especially when it comes to sex with aliens.

You should enlist!

So your friend is a Vanguard. What do you do?

How to play nice with turrets: they just want to be your friend.

Want to transfer your saves between your xbox and PC? We got you covered

Don't want to replay the game to prep for ME3? No problem. Mass Effect Saves to the rescue.

Having problems registering Mass Effect or Pinnacle Station on Origin? I've got your back:
enter your info here: https://activate.ea.com/gameactivation.do

then create or link an existing EA classic account. Origin should figure out what's up without you doing anything more at that point. If not, simply restart Origin and you should be set.

    nothing special inside the Space Edition, but you get it early and it's been in space

    It is extremely good, and a vital piece of ME storyline.

    It's ok, if you decided to save your money and just read a plot summary for it you'd probably be fine. But if you need to have more mass effect 2 its not bad.

    People said Arrival is Shepard solo, no party banter, and mostly combat

    So I was basically uninterested from the word go

    It is pretty good, honestly

    Like you know how Shepard is supposed to be the cosmic hard ass that is an unstoppable juggernaut

    but Arrival was the first time I was like god damn

    Arrival is really good

    And yeah it is Shepard solo, but you get some badass convos still

    I didn't like it as much as shadow broker, but it was still well worth the dollars

    What are the odds that ME1 and 2 will go on sale on Steam when this hits?

    I have been a horrible person and never played them, and this needs to be fixed asap.

    I loved that the first third of Arrival is designed very much to allow you to just stealth your way through things if you wish to. You don't have to, and can just powerhouse your way through shit. But if you want to actually be careful about it, you can do that too. And I really love that.

    Which makes perfect sense, since the reason you're sent out solo is because Hacket wants to avoid drawing attention towards the alliance, which tends to happen when a full squad moves in. So he just sends in Shepard. So starting the DLC out like a Stealth game makes perfect sense.

    I have to say, the whole atmosphere of the base you start out on is just splendid, too.

    Dunno what to tell you, if I'm ranking my favorite parts of ME2 Arrival ranks pretty far down. Not that its bad but it doesn't stand out for me like LotSB or overlord did.
