    You'd probably enjoy the DLC then.

    Do note that it doesn't appear to have any impact on the game outside of the DLC itself, though, beyond a new decoration for Shepard's cabin on the Normandy.

    Well I'll give it a shot. I can never turn down a chance to kick some Cerberus ass.

    You start as private (or corporal, i don't remember) of U.S. Marine corp. There are several main characters though. For each military department: marine, cavalry (tanks), air force (A-10, Apache), black ops.

    The main antagonist is Soviet General (gone rogue).

    The story is solid. Starts at the beginning of the conflict without knowing who's the enemy and then shows how our marine get's up in rank (to lieutenant). Other main characters are introduced when story requires them. Like you need to capture a town as marine, but it's protected by heavy armor - here comes captain of AF in his Apache to get rid of heavy armor. Or in Blackhawk, delivering marines squad to the battlefield or evacuating them. Blackops major does his blackops deeds (sabotage/espionage/deep recon) that benefit everyone. He in the end captures/kills the Soviet General, who have multiple SCUDs, which you have to disable first or WW3 will happen.

    The stories of all main characters are intertwined. Some of them meet each other during conflict. (And in the end they all meet afterwards, some years later, after the credits)

    I still hope that the next DLC does not feature Cerberus as a main enemy. Seriously Cerberus is getting on my nerves. I can understand that they are a big deal in ME3 but fighting the same cerberus troops basically the entire campaign plus Omega gets tedious. Maybe the next DLC features the Collectors? That would be a nice enemy that is not the same Reapers/Cerberus shit.

    I am still betting on the next DLC to be about the Citadel (Citadel DLC). A BW post confirmed that for the next DLC ALL DLC writers are needed. So that means that it has to have a lot of dialogue and stuff as otherwise SUPER MAC (Mac Walters) would not need to work on it.

    Might try it out since it's six bucks anyway.

    Yup. That comment got me super curious and eager as well. But I'm not guessing anything right now. I'm showering myself with positive thoughts about the next DLC.

    And I'm doing my usual "don't expect anything and don't read anything" about the next DLC. :P

    I've just kinda learned not to hype about anything before it's actually out. So I'm thinking positive, but expecting the worst.

    It´s pretty far away anyway so yeah I don´t care about the next DLC until I read an official announcement what it´s going to be exactly.

    I was kinda hyped with Omega and it was definitely no letdown for me so I try a small dose of hype with the next DLC too.

    All DLC writers could also mean that it features ME2 squad-mates too. Damn I would love some content with Kasumi, Jack, Zaeed and so on. It definitely promises more dialogue than Omega had. I disliked that after you did Omega no one on the Normandy commented about it you know like the crew had comments after you did Leviathan.

    Oh man, I want Jack on the team so badly! It was definitely one of the biggest disappointments when I realised you can't team up with her in ME3. I love her twisted nature and it would've been such a pleasure to have her assaulting Cerberus bastards with me.

    I would have loved to catch Nyreen and Garrus while they were making love in the main battery That would have been hilarious.

    Especially if Shepard had this face while encountering them:

    Garrus belongs to Tali. What you wish will lead to Nyreen "accidental" death. Tali's an engineer, you know.

    I think that Garrus could not say no to a "hot" turian chick on the Normandy (at least I think that Nyreen would be hot for Garrus). Screw Tali

    Why do I get the feeling Tali wouldn't even try to make it look like an accident? "I have a shotgun."

    I wouldn't have been surprised if Garrus had "tapped that" with Nyreen. Seems like it's not unusual for turians to have flings with eachother. And I always got the image from Garrus that the "relationship" between him and Shepard (when romancing him) was just blowing off steam, so to say.

    Well, he does have reach.
