    I'm at 9% installation after 6 hours. I might be setting a record.

    It's all about Yeoman Kelly, gentlemen.

    I saved her ass, all right. I saved errrbody.
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    She was the only one I didn't manage to save. I didn't realize that getting her out alive was time dependent, and I spent too much time looking around.

    Mordin and Miranda died in my timeline. As a completionist gamer, it upsets me. As a human being who finds eugenics and Miranda deplorable, it's cool.

    My last playthrough was picture-fucking-perfect. Everybody saved, everybody perfectly loyal, all missions complete with perfect paragon outcomes. It is glorious.

    I cannot wait to throw it into ME3 and watch it destroy my work by forcing somebody to die.

    Your logic is flawed.

    I'm several hours in and don't know what you're referring to. The only forced death is Ashley or Kaiden.

    Bioware has said major people will die in ME3 and there won't be shit you can do about it. #dealwithit
  • CantiCanti =/= smalltime http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9K18CGEeiI&feature=related Icrontian
    I should have expected as much. More company for the Turian general I put a hit on last night I suppose.

    yea there is a lot of rage towards Bioware right now, and not even for the DLC
  • ThraxThrax Professional Shill, Pokémaster, Watch Slut Toronto, ON Icrontian
    Another equally viable explanation is that the assets were complete and shipped with the GM disc, but the remaining DLC content (scripting, audio, etc.) were not done in time. Why wouldn't you package as many files as you could into the retail download, rather than wacking people with a massive DLC file later?
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    Why waste space on a disk or download and install for those who aren't going to bother with the DLC? You've made it easier for those who want to buy the DLC, and made it worse for those who don't want it.

    Optional content, optional install. Don't put assets on my PC for the sake of doing it.
  • ThraxThrax Professional Shill, Pokémaster, Watch Slut Toronto, ON Icrontian
    Of course, if a plurality of your playerbase is going to purchase the DLC, it still makes sense. ;) Plus, those assets can be re-used for any other DLC (free or otherwise) along the way.
  • KoreishKoreish KCMO Icrontian
    I wasn't going to get the Prothean to begin with, but now I might since I don't have to purchase DLC. Thanks Bioware.
  • fatcatfatcat Mizzou Icrontian
    The DLC fills in SO MUCH back story, must have for the die hard Mass Effect fan
  • SnarkasmSnarkasm 's-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands Icrontian
    It would seem we have differing views. I guess I haven't played it without, so I can't be sure, but there's really only one scene I had where having him with me made a distinct difference and filled in information.
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    I'm a Mass Effect die hard and I haven't played a single DLC for any of the 3 games.

    I effing hate DLC.
  • ThraxThrax Professional Shill, Pokémaster, Watch Slut Toronto, ON Icrontian
    Guess you're only a critically injured hard. Sorry, bro.

    I didn't say difference, I said back story, yanno the 50,000 years between

    Do you talk to all of your companions after every mission/side quest?
  • SnarkasmSnarkasm 's-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands Icrontian
    Mission yes. Crappy little "I lost my obelisk" side quests, no.
