I bought it several months ago because I had extra points and was starting a fresh ME1 playthrough. I regretted it. Wish I had those points back now for the awesome GonD sale going on now.

Eh, I liked Pinnacle Station, it was a neat little arcade simulator but yeah it was a huge bummer that you couldn't earn any experience for it. I did get the achievements for it which were not easy (to be best with each arena and objective/beat the later challenge). The station has a cool view and is an easter egg in ME3.

I was mainly commenting about the price. When Bring Down the Sky can be had for $1, there is no excuse for Pinnacle Station to cost more than that. Not even half as good as BDTS.

Still, if you are a completionist, Pinnacle Station is a must.  My first time playing it I couldn't stand it, but on my 2nd playthrough I got into it and really had a good time.  Got all the achievements and everything, which isn't too hard with a high level character.

How many more people are going to leave Epic? I think that's a much better question.

Yeah I don't think I was on insanity but I was on a harder level the first time and had more fun the second time when it was a little easier.

 

Besides, that DLC gives you great gear from your new apartment if you rock it that is.

By the time I played Pinnacle Station I already had Spectre gear that was better than what the dlc gives. So I was a bit disappointed in that too.

What about your squad mates? I liked how you could pull some strings at your new apartment and request better stuff because you know you're going up against unimaginable odds lol.

Well, finished omega yesterday. Glad I waited for a sale. The new enemies were pretty cool, but about halfway through it I was sick of the dark and dull environments. Plus no real long term implications other than a few war assets. Flare is a pretty cool bonus power, but the cooldown is pretty big so I'm not sure if it will fit in with my power strategy overall. For anyone on the fence, I would say Omega is worth the 600 points. There's a lot of fun in there, and some pretty good loot throughout.

Started new game plus with my FemShep and am currently at the point where I can do the Omega/Leviathan DLC's which I hadn't touched yet (did do Citadel on first playthrough but will do it again eventually.)

 

Changing two things in my NG Plus playthrough, one of which is already taken care of.

Yeah, I'll pick up Pinnacle Station for my next runthrough of ME1 probably.  I'll start a brand new character on casual difficulty so it should be a fun change of pace.

Kinda funny, but you can tell they're not really that serious fans of the series.  It's all pretty common knowledge stuff.  Even the ME: Assault tidbit.  They even have prototype footage in the ME3: Last Hours app.

That was a great blog post!  Beyond the art, some of which has been put out there already, the commentary was really interesting.  I love those Shepard/Saren concepts!  He said a couple things that seemed to confirm things related to ME3's ending that I thought were interesting.  Particularly about the state of the Mass Relays post end.  His comments seemed firm, as in, "these things happened" vs "what Shepard thinks is happening" i.e. indoctrination theory. 

 

Also, the new ME comic: Foundation started this week.  It's a good read, but it is purely an introduction and origin of the "new" character that will be featured in some way throughout the 12 week run of this series.  I like it, but I don't know that I'd recommend dropping $4 on it.

Man, I can imagine. Still a lot of people playing? I think the update with the Volus characters is the last one I checked in for. Kinda want to hop back on for a while before I let my XBL subscription lapse.

I had no problem joining full bronze, silver and gold games with no people dropping out. I just didn't have a very good character build to use. Spent a lot of time in gold spectating the geth juggernaut and volus adept essentially doing the themselves between the two of them.

Thought you guys would like this one.

 

 

Sprites are red lightning that occur above the clouds during thunderstorms, making them incredibly difficult to see and study. To search for sprites, researchers must take to the skies during a storm to get the best possible view from this phenomenon. Though they only last a fraction of a second, they are capable of taking on many shapes.
