If Jack can be on my team, I will probably get it, but that price is absurd. There better be quite a bit of gameplay, several hours at least (5 or more, which I highly doubt) to make the price of admission worth it.

I just noticed that Miranda is there with the squad in the first pic. :) And Vega and Liara are in new casual outfits in the other one. This is going to be so cool.

Tomb Raider just got bumped.

Sounds like it's going to be a great set of DLC, assuming it lives up to the hype.

We had a lot of hype for Omega and then think we were a bit let down on it when people played through it. I've not hit it yet, mainly because people here were saying to wait until it goes on sale.

Hopefully, this will be a great DLC expansion and well worth the money. If it's the last SP DLC then it certainly should have it go out with a bang.

Was there a lot of hype for Omega? I know I didn't have much and the few times I looked at the BSN forums seemed about the same (not surprising given the hate they have for the ending), I didn't think many here were incredibly hyped either.

citadel dlc will be two downloads thanks to xbox dlc size limits

bring on Reckoning, I've got 2.6 million saved up and hoping to get a lot more by Tuesday

Look, there's no easy way to ask this so I'm just gonna do it...

Does anyone want to be gay lovers with me in Fable 3?

Fun Fact. The Citadel for xbox is split over TWO DLC packages. It's nearly 4 gigs in total.


@MrChr15topher both are required to play. one will be a free download, and the other will be $15



...and most importantly:

We're also extremely privileged to have worked with the late Robin Sachs on the Citadel DLC. #ZaeedForever


I shot Wrex in the face though!

More appropriately, we should be looking at battlefield 4 at e3 to have a guess at the next ME game.

I think there was some hype for it in here, which is all I tend to worry about. ;)

I guess at 4GB, it makes itself the 800lb gorilla of DLC. Let's hope there's 3-4 hours of content in there, though I'd guess 2GB of it is the old ME1 & ME2 DLC characters being brought into ME3.

Nice that they did get some last voice work from Robin Sachs before he passed. I guess it'll be his swan song.

Ahuh ahuh I'm liking what I'm hearing actually.

To everyone on the internet that keeps bringing up well what does it matter it doesn't change the ending, if it wasn't a ME DLC that wouldn't be a thing. You understand how awesome that complaint is?

I'd say there was definitely some hype. People kept going on and on about how it should've been in the game because someone found deleted dialogue. Things like that. The sad thing is that the DLC didn't live up to the hype (even if there was only a little bit).


In any case, I'm pretty excited for the Citadel DLC. Reconnecting with old friends from ME1/2 sounds great. Not a big fan of the price though. $15...that's pretty greedy. However, since it will be that price, the content had better be longer than 2-3 hours. Still feeling REALLY burned by the Kasumi DLC from ME2 because if you know what you're doing, the DLC takes less than 30 mins, even on Insanity. If you don't, it's still much less than 2-3 hours.

Also, if this is going to be the last DLC, it's not a bad way to go. Had a teeny-tiny hope they'd ret-con the the ending, but whatever. Let's just go out with a bang (and then a whimper with the ending).

I'm a ME fan (platinumed all 3, got best of best in MP, have tons of litographs) and I'm not getting this DLC. I'll wait until I can get all DLC on disk or there's a big bundle sale. I'm being cheap on them because of how they ended ME3.

Hahahaha, no worries. I just like to see how long it takes for the endings to inevitably come up. I'm not even in the business of defending or hating on them anymore.

I'm with you on the MP DLC. I haven't been on for quite some time, but I like to swing back in every now and then to try out the new stuff. Did the Turian Havoc/Ghost ever get nerfed? Those guys were world-destroyers.

I fail to see how expecting a reasonable amount of content for a steep price, forbids me from having a good time.

Also, NO ONE knows if they're going to have a good time at this point. No one even knows if this last DLC is good. It could be a steaming pile of crap.

Just because I'm hoping it will be good, doesn't mean it will be.

I am very excited about this and I don't see any reason to doubt that it will be a lot of fun. Personally, with the exception of Firewalker, I have enjoyed every bit of dlc for this franchise. Even though the quality varies, each piece has some unique experiences to add to the ME-verse.

And chilling with Wrex and my crew in a casino? Totally worth $15.

Yeah that's about right. I didn't like Firewalker and I haven't bought pinnacle station, Omega, or played through Leviathan (which I did get on BF) but every other DLC has been very enjoyable.

How long until a sale on Omega? Don't want to pay full price for both Omega and Citadel but may not have a choice.

I'm more than talking about this DLC, I'm talking about gamers all over the internet that complain they don't get enough hours played for the money they put in. Seriously it's all about the experience now and people want endless hours of play for their money.

Since I've gotten 110+ hours out of each ME game I've purchased as well as the DLC (save Omega for ME3, purchased everything else), I would say I've certainly gotten more than my money's worth out of each ME game I've purchased on two SP playthroughs per game.

I've had enough regulars in this thread, whose opinions I certainly listen to, mention that it would be better to wait for Omega to go on-sale before purchasing it for full price. Doesn't affect me in any way complain about ME3 being a lesser value than the money I put into it.

I don't know....Omega wasn't the best ME dlc, but it was far from a bad experience. Its a two or three nights of gameplay, the new character introduced is bittersweet. She was the best new character since Motrin, IMO, but they could have done so much more with her. I think its worth the $15 from the ME faithful like most of us 'round here. It was worth it just for Aria's mid combat cussing alone! I'm glad I didn't wait to pick it up.

This. I have nearly 400 hours into ME3 alone. I've more than got my moneys worth. Ill pay the $15 and buy a couple packs in MP cuz I appreciate the work Bioware has put into their games. You can tell the passion the team has for this dlc. I'm confident this will be something special. Plus, keep in mind that they haven't shown all of their cards. There are elements of the citadel dlc that they haven't talked about yet.

I'm in the "Omega isn't worth full price" camp. To me it's like another Arrival-- it's not terrible or anything, but it's just a shooting-gallery sidequest that fails to distinguish itself in the areas of storytelling or character interaction. It may as well be any other random ME3 sidequest, which isn't a bad thing but is a tough sell for $15 IMO.

That said, I am in full-on hype train mode for Citadel.

I totally agree, I've gotten way way many hours out of my ME gaming runs. Never had I played multiple times for a set of games but then again I've never played a series that's interconnected that your decisions from one is felt in the next.

Mark me down on the other side of the debate table for Arrival. I don't know I liked how vastly different it was and found it heart pounding, you're so vulnerable in this one, in the end. Being just you I also felt a more personal story, esp the nemesis that's been going for just me, Shepard.

Speaking of Arrival, it had the hardest achievement for me to get, where you have to survive the 5 or 6 waves of Cerberus-like enemies. Had to watch the cut-scene of Arrival's big reveal / twist so many times.
