I don't know - I got alarm bells the moment I read that we'd be able to decorate an apartment. It just feels really wrong to me, really jarring? It makes no sense (as other posters have pointed out) that Shep could be playing house decorating his/her apartments, drinking with friends, gambling in the casino... while the Reapers are out there killing people left, right and center.

The Reapers are coming. What colour shall I have the drapes? Paragon Blue or Renegade Red?

All we can do is wait and see on March 5th.
Best way for IT post-ending DLC would be a confirmation cliffhangar in one DLC and then the final battle in the next.

Maybe, but what's funny though is this:

"Uncover the truth and fight alongside your squad – as well as the cast from the original Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2"

FIGHT alongside the ENTIRE CAST of all three games?

That sounds:

1. Huge
2. Epic
3. Epicly huge
and
4. Hugely epic

What the foodfreezing fuck are we fighting? Cerberus LOL?

What else could it be, but suicide mission 2.0?

With every squad member EVER?

I don't want to get my hopes up, but I don't know man. It sounds BIG.

Not to mention "Uncover the truth..."!

My IT hopes are probably at an all time low, but yeah I agree that part's intriguing. How would we possibly need almost the entire cast including Zeaed just for fighting some goons on the Citadel? And that's not so great when you can only use two squad members at once...if you're only using two squad members at once.

I read Citadel DLC rumors before it was announced that said it was expanding on Priority Earth.

The other part that has me intrigued is that it's 4 GB. How is a character/roman-driven DLC with just some Citadel environments 4 GB?

What has me most down is Chris Priestly and Jessica Merizan's tweets.

Pre-rendered videos could take up a lot of space. Just look at EC, which was almost 2 Gb.

But about the PR, here's the thing:

If Bioware tried to indoctrinate a part of their fanbase, as part of some 'The Wave' like experiment, that would be an epic feat. That would be an incredible achievement. It would take games to a whole new level.

If you believe they are trying to do that, then it's pretty logical to assume that the PR people would do anything to keep up the illusion for as long as they can.

If you're going to pull a stunt, you're going to have to spread misinformation.

I could be wrong, sure. But it makes sense to me. I've been following the PR for months and it's a pattern. They spread hopeful messages mixed with a lot of stuff that crushes hope. They have done it all year long. I've learned to ignore it. Some of the things they say are so ridiculous that it's laughable.

When asked, Jessica Merizan said the jungle planet in the ending had to be Mars, because of the two moons.

I mean, come on. I refuse to believe she's that stupid.

That's just trolling.

I am trying very hard to get too high or low while waiting for this DLC...but goddammit!!!! you guys/gals are making it hard. I don't think that anyone that is a ME fan can look at the excellent speculations here and not get excited (kinda like CP and a buffet)...but I so don't want to be overhyped for this DLC.

In the Citadel DLC description, it say "and rekindle romances". Well, this has bothered me. Why would yyou need to rekindle something that never stopped. Then I got to thinking that at the FOB in London, Shepard says goodbye to all squadmates and the LI. Shepard says this in a very solemn matter, acting like they won't come back even though Shepard assures the LI they are coming back. This can be perceived as unkindling the romance, in the sense that if Shepard dies, they want their LI to move on. Suddenly, Bioware using the term "rekindle" made sense now.

This is just my interpretation, so don't get hopes up in case this is wrong. I just felt like pointing this out.

I see it very much that way.

Shepard makes it clear, over and over, that they're not done yet. One more fight. Drinks in Rio.

Sadly, Rio is in a bit of a mess, so the Citadel will have to suffice. Joyful

Shepard: "Sometimes I think this whole Citadel is a mistake."

*applause* cheers

I swear you guys have the entire game's script memorized. Great find. If anything, Shepard taking a break from the war to buy an apartment would mean perhaps he's slowly being lulled into a state of complacency by whatever sinister mechanisms exist on the Citadel.

That makes a lot of sense actually. I know there's no way my Shepard would take time to pick out curtains and bed linen while refugees were sleeping on pallets in the docks. In fact my Shepard didn't even bother wasting credits on buying fish, not until he'd upgraded all his weapons and armor.

The only half-way sensible explanation is that Starbinger is putting the 'fluence on him, so he'll spend more time in Indoctrination Grand Central.

Here's a thing.

The Normandy is already practically a luxury liner compared to most other warships. Its got a large mess hall, reasonably sized living quarters, a bar complete with a poker table, and a lounge with a small library. Not to mention Shepard's quarters are 5 Star Hotel worthy.

Why would Shepard need R&R with that level of comfort already?

Plus he's already got Purgatory where he can do the Shepard Shuffle to his heart's content. Yet more opportunities for R&R seem completely unnecessary during the war itself.

exactly, and realisticaly, outside of Gameplay(what we see of Shepard's life) there will be reasonably long periods of time were he/she has plenty of time to just chill before the next mission

Shepard: "We need more guns! Build me a special armory on the Citadel!"

Joker: "Don't you already have an armory in the Shuttle Bay?"

Shepard: "And build me a shooting range as well!"

Joker: "Like the one in the Spectre Office?"

Shepard: "Yep! And make sure we spend loads of money and resources that could be better used for other soldiers who are underequiped too!"

Let's talk about the truth uncovering and fighting that's supposed to occur with the entire squad cast of the trilogy.

Theres no way they're going to have 15+ squadmates show up just to take on a mission Shepard can handle with 2 squadmates. As DD said, this massive fight screams post ending content.

Also the tear jerker moments dont make much sense if they're pre ending. It ruins the game's pacing if you ask me.

I've also considered dumping this thread on BSN just to see those idiots overreact. You think they'd want post ending content more than anyone. What better way is there to expand on their sick control and synthesis fantasies?

i did try to dump this on bsn and got the same responses as always:

-bad writing
-you're grasping at straws
-they made a typo
-i'm still not buying this dlc
-you're reading too much into this

They're a lost cause.

I have a feeling some of us Grunt fans are going to be disappointed.


I bet Bioware only uses Wrex and previous romance options only. And I bet it will be all auto dialog save your previous fling.
