    [h2]The running DLC list[/h2]
    [sub][sub]For the sake of argument, I consider this to be stuff you have to do more than just buying the standard edition of the game after it has come out in order to get[/sub][/sub]

    M-55 Argus Assault Rifle
    N7 Assault Rifle
    N7 Armor
    N7 Arsenal SMG
    N7 Arsenal Shotgun
    N7 Arsenal Sniper Rifle
    N7 Arsenal Pistol
    AT12 Raider shotgun
    N7 hoodie for shepard
    Robot dog
       Prothean squadmate    "from ashes" mission
    Reckoner Knight set
    Squad Appearance pack
    Collector assault rifle (multiplayer only)
    Mass Effect: Infiltrator "exclusive weapons" (not stated what)
    Chakram launcher

    This is leaving out ALL the multiplayer pack dlc stuff like the recruitment program, statues, artbook stuff and inevitable dr pepper / pepsi / coke / whatever tie ins.

    You're seriously telling me that this is an acceptable amount of content to be left out of the game for marketing purposes.
    Um, most of that is in the collector's edition, and is probably mostly cosmetic. Stop getting your knickers in a twist, this is such an over-reaction.

    That's what I did too.

    I preordered at Gamestop first but Origin preorders get a free copy of BF3.. so.. that's enough extras for me to switch over.

    The amount of extra bonus preorder exlusivity content is annoying.

    So what, the    Prothean    is still in the game without the DLC, it just adds him as Squaddie and gives a side mission?

    He's bitching about people bitching because people bitching is annoying

    also would calling what he's saying "bitching" not in itself be bitching?

    I just want everyone to take a step back and look at this more objectively. I am not on the side of EA nor the people who want to burn them down.

    A source on this would be nice, I'm seeing people say "don't jump to conclusions" and "quit being such a dumbass he's still in the game", and a source would further their argument.

    Well excuse me for expecting better out of a community of mostly people I respect.
    You respecting the Bioware community is a larger issue that you and I don't have time to delve into right now.

    He's bitching about people bitching because people bitching is annoying
    And continuing the cycle instead of shutting the fuck up is a brilliant way to solve that annoyance.

    Should've taken the insulting sarcasm and ran with it into 'shutthefuckupville'.

    Or he has more important things to do than really care about a game series?
    Clearly.

    Made evident by the fact that he responded to the people talking about it in all caps and continues to respond with the fury of an angry fanboy.

       Brilliant deduction

    But VALVe has a genius marketer at its helm, pretty much a monopoly on digital stores (as we've seen with the reaction to Origin), and has no publishers to please. Comparing them to a regular company is like comparing a magnifying glass left on a windowsill to the sun itself.

    Edited:

    Unless it's been delayed for so many years general interest has been pretty much lost (see: DNF).

    Just as people are jumping to a conclusion that the DLC will have plot crucial stuff or interesting stuff about the story people are jumping to a conclusion that it won't have anything crucial to the plot and nothing interesting to the story.

    The higher chance is that it does have something to do with the lore of the universe in the game giving information about what happened to the protheans, to the interested fans. The chances are also that the prothean will be in the actual main game and be woven in to the story and the DLC will just add more personal stuff about the prothean. Either way it's a day 1 DLC that takes production time away from the game which isn't okay, so they have already lost on that part unless they change.

    What really draws the line tough is if the prothean has some really fucking interesting shit involved with him in the DLC that explains a lot of what happened and is a major story event, this is unconfirmed tough. But as I stated they have already fucked up by making a day 1 DLC that has some semi-important stuff (It's a freakin shooting prothean as a squad mate) and takes them away from development time adding up with the other CE stuff (which is fairly minor but acts as the final straw)

    So, I`ve been doing my first ME2 Insanity runthrough

    First Thoughts:
    Holy shit.
    -Every enemy having shielding makes a lot of powers useless.
    Holy shit.
    -YMIR mechs become final boss-worthy enemies
    -Recruiting Garr-bear was one hell of an ordeal
    -I'm starting to feel sexual thoughts towards the Mattock

    Man, I've only played through Me2 before once, but, Insanity is a whole new game. I don't really have the luxury to pick squaddies based on personal favorites, but now actually picking stats to compliment me. (Mordin's actually pretty sweet! Who'da thought that?)

    Actually, the final product of DNF was really in development for no more than 2 years, each build of the game from other devs were very, very different from the final product. (Obviously)

    What could you possibly learn or discover from this character that you would not just assume? How    the protheans fought the Reapers? They didn't, they just ran and died.   
    (Mass Effect 3 plot spoilers/speculation)    It's entirely possible that this Prothean was a part of The Crucible project during his time but had to go into stasis for a time where he and his comrades could come out before the Reapers arrive, create the Crucible or whatever anti-Reaper device, destroy them, and be heralded as gods. In fact, the Prothean data cache on Mars may even direct Shepard to what he believes to be a secret weapon when in actuality it is the last remaining member of the Crucible Project. Cue Crucible construction, Prothean assists you and tells you important shit needed for the Crucible. There may even be more to the Conduit Project from Mass Effect than we realize. Whatever.

    Other than that possibility, he could give insight to the Protheans as to who they were and fill in some gaps on what we currently know of the Protheans.  
      

    Bottom line is it's too early to tell anything for certain and our best bets are to wait for the game (I've said this no-brainer comment before)

    "i'm making opinions based on leaked info that hasn't been confirmed look at me!"
    A handful of people who frequent this thread have been doing that since the leaks first surfaced. I'd just ignore it/them.

    I like how you call everyone a nerd when you disagree or dislike something going on inside a thread in the most dismissive manner, like dysphemisms are the only 'language' you know how to speak in times when you're too lazy to engage in an actual conversation, because it might require some effort.

    And then, after being certain that you've avoided the need to use your brain and what little debate skills you may have, you run up into your ivory tower and act as though you're not the cancer of the ME thread, responding to everyone's posts and telling all of us that you have a boyfriend every five or ten minutes.

    Okay, I'd actually love some help from strategists.

    I'm running a Soldier (boring, I know, slag me for it later, KK). What's my best loadout with squads and guns?

    I usually roll with the
    -Mattock
    -Collector Beam
    -Geth Shotgun
    -Phalanx
    -Default Sniper (can't remember the name)

    And my standard crew is usually Garrus/Miranda

    Advice?

    Day 1 DLC is not a double negative, several other Bioware in the recent future had it, including (the spotless, flawless, no mistakes ever blahblahblah) Dragon Age: Origins and (the bad, horrible, incredibad blahblahblah) Dragon Age 2 and Mass Effect 2.

    Step outside and take a deep breath, this is just a game, dude, relax.

    Good but I'd used:
    -Vindicator (mattock works here too until you get the Revenant)
    -Collector Beam
    -Geth Shotgun
    -Phalanx
    -Incisor

    with Mordin and Zaeed.

    I actually haven't mentioned my Boyfriend, (untill just now) and whenever I do, its just in passing. If the fact I have a lover sets off something deep inside you, I'm truly sorry for how lonely you are.

    And you're right, I can't be assed to join a bunch of people flipping the fuck out over stupid shit like DLC and tiny add-ons when the game isn't out yet.

    How about you act like an sensible adult, wait for the game, and than make a judgement before flipping out and proving you never had to deal with a real problem in your life?

    Pre-ordered Collectors edition, baby! SO EXCITED!

    I don't see why you're all "RUINED FOREVER, BIOWARE SUCKS!"

    Game's not even out yet! I'm certain it'll have all the things we loved about ME2. Little secrets, witty dialogue(I predict at least 3 memes), great character moments, and above all else, shooting and lootin' that's tighter than a nun's vagina. IF the combats as solid as ME2, I can't wait!

    Although, I bought DNF balls of steel, so I might not be the best judge of things.

    ME1 and ME2 were good and has the same writers. I don't think ME3 will cock this the fuck up.
