    But y'know. It just seems like a short time-off between Shepy and Garrus. Like they're friends and bros to the bone, but I never got that romantic vibe from him. So I really wouldn't be surprised if Garrus and Nyreen would've hit it off.

    Maybe Shepard just needed the helmet for one of Garrus' mandibles to get hooked on?

    Tigole Blue Bitties. Yea I enjoyed it. Wasn't the best DLC but enjoyable none the less. Can't wait to see what's next.

    Where's the new changes for tonight! I'm already packing 300.000 creds to fill up the new class to max. Wonder what'll be.

    And I gave Huntress a go. Cloak - Dark Channel with Pierce means dead (Armor). Quite enjoyable. Plus you get Warp to further reduce the Armor, so she shreds it quite nicely. With Indra she should be able to perform nicely.

    Indeed. Which is kind of why I think the ending has caused such an uproar. The series is brilliant but for a lot of folks all of that didn't matter because of the end.
    Except most of the vocal uproar over the endings would still have that same disconnect for choices. Just look at all the people that claim the EC made the endings better when all the EC did was add a few shots of a few things but didn't change anything. The uproar had nothing to do with the ending but everything to do with it being a cold hard ending.

    I highly doubt it. They wouldn't release a DLC that has the potential for their cast to have been killed off prior in the game. All it means and all it promises is that they have all of their writers working on it. The comment doesn't promise more dialogue or mean anything but every DLC writer on staff is working on the story/lore of the DLC.

    Also, each weapon gets a narrated codex entry.

    Well my biggest beef with the ending was the lack of closure. The Crucible fired, the Reapers retreated/died and . . . Das Malefitz by Faunts. There was nothing about what happened to my squadmates. Nothing to explain why my squadmates who were with me on Earth were suddenly on the Normandy. No reason why the Normandy crashed on a planet and nothing to indicate that the Normandy crew as just stranded on a deserted planet until they died.

    The extended cut fixed that. It gave closure, explaining what happens to the galaxy and the characters. It explained how my squad got back on the Normandy. It filled in several gaping holes and made the ending acceptable in my book.

    However, to making an ending that was worthy of the trilogy, they'd have to remove the fucking star child and the whole deus ex machina stuff, which would be a rewrite, not a DLC.

    So while I think the DLC made the ending acceptable (and indeed, it's a very emotional and bittersweet ending,) I still can't stand the star child deus ex machina.

    And what exactly would have been an ending worthy of the trilogy? The Catalyst is just an actor and there really isn't any other way they could have done it while still having the final battle on earth. I mean would you rather have had some hidden device on earth just appear out of thin air?

    The crucible and catalyst would have been fine without the Starchild, to be honest. Have the players choice of control or destroy depend on their renegade/paragon alignment. I think it's a bit too far gone now, though, with the Leviathan DLC reinforcing the Starchild's purpose.

    But who would explain the choice? Anderson? The Illusive Man? Anderson wouldn't have made sense since he wouldn't have known if no one in the Alliance military did. The Illusive Man could have known the truth but he was indoctrinated so why would the Reapers reveal it when they are still trying to stop Shepard?

    Also when Shepard encounters them the Crucible wasn't docked yet so there would have been nothing to reveal since "no one has ever used the crucible and gotten to that point. It would have to have been something that told Shepard what choices were which. Why does the form matter so much?

    They probably have DLC writers for different tasks such as dialogue, missions and stuff so I think you are kinda wrong there. Having all DLC writers working on it has to mean more content/dialogue and whatnot more. Otherwise only some writers would work on it.

    We will see when it is released tho´.

    You can get the basic class card (the original human, common versions) that give 250k xp to that class.
    Not too often though, I seem to get Armour Piercing ammo loads

    Were you okay with the vigil deus ex machina at the end of mass effect 1? Vigil literally comes out of nowhere, hands them the all the information about what's going on, provides them with the key to stopping the reapers from coming through AND sends them to the citadel. Huge deus ex machina in other words. I don't recall anyone complaining then.
