Nice post. I though I saw something on the citadel and London that he said he made a mistake and its before Cronos. Could be wrong and I dont have the source.

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 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.

Zaeed is a romance option?


The voice actor for Zaeed passed away not to long ago. Doubt they will use Zaeed at all.

Exactly!!!!

Arrival DLC - Datapad of one of the indoctrinated scientists: I woke up this morning in a cold sweat. The nightmare was back, the one with the enormous starship crawling through the Citadel and all my friends turning to dust. Even now I can see it in my mind. Why won’t this stop?

Shocked

affraid

MIND = BLOWN
Thanks, I've posted that three times today and you're the first to notice.

I wasn't on, great find!

Funny, only a couple of weeks ago I added that one to the IT quotes collection, Jarrod_L came up with it.

According to bioware they worked with the VA before his death

They announced on twitter Zaeed's lines were done before his death and will feature.

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?

One of the things I've noticed is that although there is a poker table, bar, etc, you can't interact with them. If Shepard wants to get smashed, he can't, because you can't pour yourself a drink (no interact button).

Mass Effect 2 had a bar that you could interact with on the Normandy.

This amount of secrecy for an R&R DLC with some tacked on conspiracy mission really doesn't make sense.

The PR is also playing down what's supposed to be their biggest and last DLC for ME3.

These two things don't add up and definitely suggest they're hiding something big with this DLC.

I'm wondering if Joker's line isn't a clue about a DLC that has been planned from the beginning. As in, when you hear an advertisement for a DLC with apartments, Blasto, etc, we're supposed to recognize it as being a facade.

They'll probably spill everything the day before the DLC goes live. Until then they are probably going to keep it quiet. It'll probably blow our minds. I mean if it's not a great DLC, why all the secrecy and silence? Not to mention only giving us a few scraps of pictures and tidbits to speculate on.

I don't think they'll spill anything. Remember Gamble's quote: "the content will speak for itself".

This is why I'll
a) not watch ANY trailer
and
b) Will try avoiding the internet (including this forum) as much as possible on Tuesday, hell, probably even on Monday.

PatrickWeekes ‏@PatrickWeekes

Some fans mistakenly thought we started work on Citadel DLC in December 2012. That would have been a VERY short timeline. :)

--------------------------------------------

PatrickWeekes ‏@PatrickWeekes

We actually began planning not long after ME3 shipped and did most of our writing in... late summer? It's been a long road. :)


Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.................

Same for me, though I would not avoid the internet, since I wouldn't be able to download the DLC... :EDI:

Guys, guys... Don't get your hopes up about this DLC - save yourselves the disappointment later.

I predict the DLC won't alter the ending, or anything ending-related at all. Instead it's going to be a character-focused, dialog-focused story, full of fun moments with our favourite characters. And it's going to be AWESOME in that respect.

If Bioware was going to do the reveal about IT, they'd want to do it properly and in a way that'd impress the awesomeness of what they have done upon everyone. This is impossible to do in a DLC format - even technically. The sheer amount of content required would not fit even in 4 Gb they've promised for the Citadel. Instead, it needs a full-scale new game and a full-fledged 2-3 years development cycle to do properly.

A new game which - oh, wait - they have already announced.

As in that stuff never appears, the advert is an illusion? I like that idea. Doubt it, but plausible.

Its not everyday there's lines in a vanilla game ridiculing the very concept of a yet to be released DLC.

lol

To be fair, 4GB is more than 1/2 the size of an Xbox360 disk. Not counting all the base assets that are covered by the main game itself, a 4GB DLC, as long as it isn't taken up by tons of uselessly bloaded-sized videos (hi EC)...

...its pretty much a FULL EXPANSION :)

Not getting ahead of myself - just stating what is possible.

Like many others on here, I'm stuck in limbo. I can't decide if I should get my hopes up or keep them low just in case... I mean wasn't the Citadel DLC leaked long ago? It's hard to keep hope up in IT (no matter how fervently one believes) when that light at the end of the tunnel is approaching very, very fast. Fingers crossed guys, this may really be our last ride.
