spybreak makes a good point, EA made money through the online pass...not being able to access a few additional MP maps and classes that can still be purchased through microtransaction for online pass holders would make a bigger stink. if they're smart they'll keep the MP content fresh longer as SP games eventually all succumb to the huge price drops in very little time.

I think that if the info about the MP content pack hadn't been leaked previously, we'd probably have been paying for it. Most likely that leak and the bad press they've been getting over the ending drove this to be free versus whatever they were going to charge for it.

Future ones will likely be paid DLC, if I had to guess.

Go to the trailer. Go to 0:16. Notice the colors of the three characters shown.

I'm pretty sure it was always intended to be free. Characters held back to give MP a shot in the arm. The timing of the DLC release is perfect to keep the MP fresh. And with everyone still trying to unlock the new content, there will be some microtransactions going on (I intend to try, hell I still haven't got my Salarian Engineer or Quarian Infiltrator ). They'll make plenty of money on that alone and will please the cheap gamers.

That's very cool, the model's voice kind of ruins the illusion though. :lol: They need Yvonne Strahoski to cosplay as Miranda, that would be the total package.

I'm surprised that the model for Shepard doesn't appear at conventions and stuff, seems like easy money/publicity.

I don't think there would be enough walls that could hold back all the people rushing up to see Yvonne Strahovski cosplay Miranda.

And which Shep model are we talking about, Sheploo or femShep?

Male Shep. Female Shep isn't based on any real-world person AFAIK.

I'm waiting for the inevitable head-explosion you'll have either way with the ending, be it suckage or amazing. :lol:

If it's still bad after the Extended Cut, then all you'll hear is a loud shriek (similar to the Banshee's) erupt from the skies. That will be the sound of my soul dying.

I'm so pumped for next week, now.

Not yet, but the Mass Effect panel is about to start. Don't know how much they'll say, but hopefully we get some new bits and pieces of info.

News on single player dlc would be welcome. I expect to hears more about the comics and the upcoming anime. I'm actually more hopeful for dragon age news out f PAX.

I see that people have settled into a traditional role in the MP. Same map, same enemy each time I play. Is there a reason why Cerberus is the favorite enemy?

I think I have just 2 more gold maps to complete but I cant seem to get into a game that has the maps being played.

cerberus is predictable and easy to manage because theirs tactics are so varied where as reapers and geth are one extreme or the other...with cerberus the only real danger is the phantoms and one stasis bubble and concentrated fire eliminates that problem.

I've seen one map where you can farm Geth on gold w/out a quarian support...this is purely more for XP vs. credits but whatever works.
