Hey Simon,

You see this? I got an email from xbox live about it. I think you play console, but I honestly don't know if the expansions come out at the same time.

Actually I'm a strictly PC gamer (at least until I get off my ass and get that Wii). Yes, I've heard of it, and I'm getting it. Though I'll likely not play it until I get a new rig up and running since my current one bricked itself yesterday.

And Bioware DLC does come out at the same time for all platforms, though I get no notifications because I don't subscribe to those newsletters. I just load up the ME/DAO Wiki page and that basically tells me all the news I need to know.

Btw while we're on the subject, Borderlands is also getting new DLC later this month. Personally I was a fan of Dr Ned and Knoxx's Armory since they felt like genuine expansions of the game, so I'm looking forward to this one. Mad Moxxi however is a boring shlog through tired brown old arenas doing the same old boring shit of killing people over and over again. Thank God I got it on sale so I didn't waste too much cash on it.

Sadly, I still haven't completed the main story line from ME2. I got pissed when your crew gets kidnapped, so I went back to a previous save and build that gun ad-on for the ship -- of course that didn't change the story line and I got frustrated after putting in 18h+ getting to that gun.

I understand it will help later, but... so it goes. I did like the Zombie add-on for Borderlands. Unfortunately, the upstairs 360 has gone on the blink again and I'll need to get it re-repaired. Haven't played anything much lately. Waiting for either Fable 3 or New Vegas.

I only played it through the once. I had every intention of taking a completely different character through ME1 and importing it, but I can't face playing all the way through the first game again.

Playing through ME1 isn't so bad if you just cheat in max charm/intimidate and skip all the collection quests. God damn those collection quests. I did them all, hoping there'd be a proper reward, but nope. Cash and XP. Cash and XP. Cash and XP. And a cleaner journal...

ME1 has that problem in general. No interesting reward experiences for all the trouble it gives you.

I did ME1 twice. I tried multiple times to go through as a renegade vanguard but never could work myself up to continue past Feros. Also the game is pretty much biased towards Paragons, which sucks. Also also my second run through ME1 was just about perfect so I have little incentive to go back and redo it all again. Killing Ashley again through may be worth it.

Is it me or is Bioware really having trouble with making likeable human female characters in the Mass Effect series? Ashley's a racist, preachy cow. Jack is just scary. Miranda has that god-awful manface. Kelly's, well...

I'm certainly glad that I never went near that...

Still not as bad as what the internet seems to have interpreted Harbinger's obsession with Shepard...

"Renegades are red
Paragons are blue,
Assuming direct control,
This hurts you."
