    Stop confusing your opinions with everything else, its fucking annoying.
    I am not confusing my opinion with everything else, nor did I say that someone else can't think they are not evil. Stop looking for a reason to fight.

    However Cerberus certainly is evil. Some of the reasons for why I believe this (note the I) are as follows (also noted this isn't all of the reasons why)
    "Any methods of advancing humanity's ascension are justified, including illegal or dangerous experimentation, terrorist activities, sabotage and assassination. " http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Cerberus

    http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Cerberus#History
    "hrough Admiral Kahoku, Shepard learns that Cerberus has conducted horrific experiments intended to create super soldiers, including experiments on rachni and Thorian Creepers"
    "They accidentally unleashed rachni on Listening Posts Alpha and Theta when their experimental subjects -- shipped from Noveria -- escaped from Depot Sigma-23. "
    "Cerberus also deliberately destroyed a settlement on Chasca by turning the colonial pioneer team there into Husks. "
    "A traumatised marine named Corporal Toombs also claimed that in one of their most devastating experiments, Cerberus lured thresher maws to the colony on Akuze"
    "During his investigation, Kahoku came to conclusion that Cerberus was in fact a rogue black ops group that broke away from the Alliance. However, soon after he had managed to contact Commander Shepard with this information, Kahoku was captured and killed by Cerberus."
    " Unlike the Alliance, which is restricted by the laws of the Council, the Illusive Man is prepared to take any action, no matter how heinous, to achieve his goal, believing history will vindicate him. For now,"

    http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Eld...rial_Accidents

    And those are just from the first Mass Effect game. Cerberus is evil though not all of their actions are evil as some can certainly be neutral or good depending on the act.

    I'm rather late, but dat trailer!

    I died. In my excitement I went to BSN to discuss it. Big mistake, they're bitching about it. The sad part is that I'm not surprised.

    Nothing on the internet surprises me anymore, least of all the people.

    Fucking Shep.....

    Oh noes the Geth! *Shep enters the scene* RATATATATATATATA ~ problem solved.
    Oh noes the Collectors! *Shep comes back to life, enters the scene* RATATATATATATATAT ~ solved.
    Oh noes the Reapers! *Shep enters the scene* RATATATATTATAATATAT ~ done.
    Oh noes omega! *Shep: bitch please....* RATATATATATATATATA!!!!!

    This is the reason why I didn't hate Dragon Age 2 like most of people did... yes, they got lazy with the maps and companions, but damn… it’s nice not having to worry about how to save the fucking world once again =/


    Also, was that a incoming violent kiss from Aria to Shep that I seen there? Hum Hum ~

    Now male Shepard can get some calibrations too, go female turians. Off-topic, it's my first post in this thread, and somehow everything revolves around Shepard having sexual encounters with everything that's semi-capable of independant though.

    I am still awestruck even after a night of sleep after watching DAT trailer I am absolutely looking forward to playing that shit this evening.

    This DLC has to be amazing. It has 4 big missions and if you compare that to the 2 big missions of LAIR then you hopefully have a fucking amazing DLC !!!

    BTW: Dat voiceactor of Petrovsky is pure WIN. Both Aria and Petrovsky, this is gonna be badass. I loved how Petrovsky said "Turn back !!!" and Aria returned: "Your a DEAD MAN!!"

    Epic stuff.

    Oh and BTW: Of course those guys on BSN are bitching about the trailer and Omega in general but that does not surprise me at all. They all seem to be 10 year old kids that can´t afford to pay 13 bucks or whatever it costs in dollars so they bitch about the price.

    Speaking of BSN, it's pretty funny about the poll there. The thread is full of people whining, yet the poll itself is vastly in favour of getting the DLC.

    Yeah I just saw the most recent threads and they consist of:

    "Passion lost for creating titles/good DLC content?"

    "Carrie Anne Moss doesn't sound like she cares."

    "Why Petrovsky's fate will decide my final verdict of ME3 as an RPG"

    "Would the Omega DLC be an easier sell for you at $10."

    "I hate ME3"

    I mean seriously ... how can you be so brainfucked ? I am really angry after reading all those threads that consist to 100% of pre-assumptions and bitching.

    ---------- Post added 2012-11-27 at 09:55 AM ----------

    For all of you wondering who the VA for Mister "Badass Russian" Oleg Petrovsky is:

    It´s Brian George. This is the same guy who voiced Knight-Commander Greagoir in Dragon Age Origins, and Larius in Dragon Age 2: Legacy.

    Pretty good choice to be honest!

    I've read the comic. It was good, showed what Petrovsky is willing to do, and how he draws the line.

    Based on the comic, I'd expect him to rebel against TIM after finding out what TIM has done so far. That also would be the obvious choice to go for an ending in Omega.
    My expectations for the DLC aren't through the roof, but they are high based on what I've already seen so far on the comic.

    I still trust Bioware to pull through. That's why I'm done with the whine threads on BSN. I still do check the multiplayer discussions there regularly though.
    "So, he sent a succubus to seduce you, and lure you down to his side. And yet, first thing you do is to check her ass? Ah, kid, you've got much to learn.."

    So the DLC is gonna be released between 10 AM and 11 AM GMT in the UK (Mike Gamble confirmed that on Twitter) for the xbox.

    Currently it is 09:40 AM in London. Only a few minutes/hours left peeps.

    Sadly I can only start to play it in about 6 hours work and stuff ... DAMN.

    My prediction -
    Final choice will be:
    Kill Aria, use Omega resources and Russian General to fight against the reapers. Lose Blood Pack, Blue Suns and those yellow guys. Gain Ex-Cerb forces.
    Kill Oleg, lesser resources as Aria will be focusing on Cerberus. Booty call. Also, she wrecks shit.

    As much as i like Aria, she is unstable and chaotic (which is why we like her) but she is a liability in the war.
    Sorry babe, you have to go.

    I know what my Renegade Shep is going to do with Aria. First violently f*ck her and then shoot her in the head.

    Nah seriously I am looking forward to those descision that you can possibly take during the DLC.

    Shoot her right into the mouth as Shepard goes: "First rule of the galaxy: Dont fuck with Shepard!"
