There's an article on Kotaku with some fan designs of new ME characters. Some of these are just awesome and I hope BW takes notice.

Wow super anime, eeeeee do not want. They don't really fit the universe and just adding N7 to something... ah well a few are cool ideas though.

Okay, the Jack redesigns and anime ones are meh, but I thought some of the soldiers and drell were great. And I loved that goofy looking volus.

Yea, pretty cool designs in there. Some of the goofier ones I thought were kind of neat (undiscovered races).

I have to agree that too many slapped "N7" on their designs simply because they thought it "looked cool". Too many Jack redesigns too. Jack was not a well-liked character in ME2 (WAY too stereotypical and stupid angst) and only got better in ME3.

On the other hand, the Varro Krios one was especially neat for it's backstory:

"the grandson of Thane and the first non-human to join the N7 program."

That's pretty cool. As for the anime drell design? I have no doubt it was meant to be a Yeoman.

So, what shall we start taking bets on for the new DLC?

More backstory like From Ashes or Leviathan?
More side story like Omega?
Some of both?

About all we know is that it's called "Citadel" or at least seems focused on the Citadel. My guess is it will uncover some mysteries of the Citadel's original construction and purpose-- but of course not enough that the events at the end of the game would no longer be a surprise for Shepard. I don't know, Omega was an obvious tangent for a DLC, but no "unfinished business" relating to the Citadel springs to mind. Maybe something that will touch on the Armistan Banes mystery from the first game?

There's also the possibility that this will be the last piece of campaign DLC for Mass Effect 3. If that's true, and I don't know if there's much evidence one way or the other, then it's much more likely to be a "grand farewell" that has a lot of relevance for the main story and characters than a standalone side story like Omega.

Hoping it's more side story since I decided to sell my copy off after Omega--as after that I didn't figued I'd want to shell out for anymore DLC.

I'd lean toward it being that. Hard to do much more with the main story. At most it will flesh out some more backstory of the Citadel, but as Ryu notes it can be anything major that spoils the ending for people who play for the first time and do the DLC before beating the game.

Would be nice if did cover Armistan Banes, as it does appear that it might be an interesting lead-in for some side story:

http://masseffect.wi.../Armistan_Banes

If it is the last piece of campaign DLC, they do need to do some big send off to wrap up some loose ends and tie things up neatly.

That is assuming we don't have Mass Effect 4: The Retcon.

I'm sure you could rent/borrow it somewhere along the way if you did want to go through that DLC at some point in the future.

Honestly my theory on Armistan Banes is that the writers were leaving possibilities open for the identity of the Shadow Broker. Obviously in ME2 they decided to go a different direction with it. But the thread is still hanging if they want to do something else with it.

Hopefully they'll tie up that loose end and not make a few more in the process.

Huh, I totally forgot about that Banes stuff, but yeah, that would be interesting and wouldn't really tinker with any major story elements yet still provide something intriguing to explore.

Then again, I would prefer that it turns out to be something very story-relevant and important. Maybe something with the Keepers? I'm honestly stumped what they could do with the Citadel at this point. This DLC is a major blind spot for me.

But, I'll be there day one with MS points in hand! ;)

I remember being frustrated because all I wanted to do was put a cap in that keepers head. That part really creeped me out. It was very macabre for a ME game, I thought.

That being said, I'd love it if this DLC is a keeper hunting simulator mini game, kinda like a mix of Pinnacle Station and Big Game Hunter.

This 18" Normandy SR2 is off the hook. But, for $300. Ouch. I'm curious what the included code does, though. It doesn't say it's a ME3 MP code.

If Dark Horse made that PoS, I'd advise you to stay as FAR away from it as humanly possible. None of their pieces for Mass Effect have been worth the price tag and at this point, they only care about collecting as much money from suckers as possible. Unless you're blinded by your love of all things Mass Effect (looking at you, Chubbs :P), don't even consider it for a second.

And, since those images are promotional and should present the piece in the best light possible, they don't do a very good job of hiding the semi-shoddy paint application. Major pass.

Heh, you got a genuine LOL from me, Edge. Yeah, I am a certifiable ME Merch whore, 'tis true. I will defend my mini SR2, though. Even though most went out broken or with shoddy paint jobs, mine looks pretty darn good. It was worth the $28 I spent on it via amazon. $300 is too much for me. I'd rather spend $100 and get the Mordin + Garrus busts. But I'm even too cheap to do that right now.

I finally got to the Mass Effect comic books I snagged with Dark Horse's sale a while ago and am really liking them. It's also neat to see the backstory with Shepard's body, the collectors and the Shadow Broker (pivotal cannon).

Agreed. Some of the comics tell near-required pieces of the story or insightful looks into key characters that's just interesting.

You could build your own LEGO Mako and Normandy. Several places list the required parts and instructions to build them. You would just have to buy the lego pieces.

Damn, sorry Chubbs. Guess I shouldn't have told you that. Now, you're going to spend money on Lego pieces just to build your very own Mako and Normandy. Oh well :lol:
