Has anyone else seen that comic depicting the newest Mass Effect book, it's hilarious. And it really, really makes it out to be terrible.

[editline]28th February 2012[/editline] oh you're all going to rate it dumb because it has rage faces I don't like them either but it's a simple way to make a comic
It would have been better to simply link the massive list of all its errors. I'll see if I can find it. Edit: [url]https://docs.google.com/document/d/1XBpMF3ONlI308D9IGG8KICBHfWKU0sXh0ntukv-_cmo/preview?pli=1&sle=true[/url]
The Turians with rickshaws is the best part.

From what I've seen...yes, hence my hesitation to read it.
[release][h2]All The Mass Effect 3 DLC Costs How Much?[/h2] By Alec Meer on February 27th, 2012 at 3:45 pm. [IMG]http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/images/12/feb/metoys.jpg[/IMG] No. Nooo. Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo way. Destructoid writer but not X-Files creator Chris Carter (who is probably incredibly bored of that reference) has been doing a bit of maths, which immediately makes him a more capable human being than I am. The purpose of this mathleticism was to collate all the disparate bits of DLC, pre-order bonus, unlocks and whatnot available for the upcoming marketing monolith that is Mass Effect 3, and just how much it’d cost someone to lay hands on the whole shebang. Take a seat before you read the next line. [h2]$870/£550/€650.[/h2] Whaaaat. It must, however, be pointed out that much of that horror-price stems from having to buy bonus code-sporting hardware such as special gamepads, keyboards and headsets, or Mass Effect 3 merch such as multiple action figures and iPhone cases. And most of what it gets you in-game is just weapon variations, skins and multiplayer unlocks, rather than ‘real’ content. Not stuff you’ll actually need, in other words, depending on how much you care about being King Big Balls in multiplayer. Apparently, each additional code you get for the Collector’s Assault Rifle (available with assorted Razer hardware) further boosts its power in multiplayer, which makes for a fairly vague concept of completism and presumably suffers from diminishing returns. Even so – this is a sign of just how darkly convoluted and fragmented modern gaming purchases have become. The full breakdown of all the DLC and the necessary purchases is over yonder.[/release] Source: [url]http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/02/27/all-the-mass-effect-3-dlc-costs-how-much/[/url]

[QUOTE=gudman;34895517]When someone will find this thread with 200+ new posts he'll think some new info or trailer was released. God he will be dissapointed. Again.[/QUOTE] Dammit
Wow, one of the early players is on BSN talking about the game. Been reading some of the copypastes of it on /vg/. And I am really not liking some of the things he is saying. Also, most of the leak information has been true.

It says right there in then fucking article it's all optional shit for Multiplayer. Who fucking cares? It's promos. TF2 has promos, and everyone loves that. There's something I genuinely don't understand with gamers. You all feel fucking entitled to everything. And you're not. If you want this shit, go out and buy it. If it genuinely means that much to you, buy it. "EVERYTHING NOT FREE? FUCK YOU BIOWARE YOU MONEY HUNGRY BASTARDS I CAN"T BELIEVE YOU" Want to know what the solution is? Suck it the fuck up. You don't need everything.

The multiplayer shit is just stuff you can unlock anyway, and anyone who buys physical items for multiplayer codes is a retard. The amount of sensationalist bullshit around the DLC is astounding. I don't agree with what EA and Bioware are doing, it's a dick move, but the people going out of their way to misinform people are fucking stupid.

FUUUCK YOUUU!" It's not for the DLC shit for brains you're buying the action figure it comes with a little piece of DLC the dlc is the bonus you are paying for the figure you are a dumbshit

[QUOTE=Novangel;34902101]Fuck you Sardonus. Fuck you I WILL [B]NOT SUCCUMB. [/B][/QUOTE] All it said was "Wrex has 6 vaginas" (Which is false) Also (actual spoiler) [sp]The ending is final, so it throws you back in time to before you started the last mission so you can play future DLC. That means no playing after beating the last mission. :([/sp]

I really should stop spoiling myself.. Just one more week. One more damn week.
"Plus lots of ship dialog in this game is Zaeed / Kasumi style where Shep talks but not in convo mode." Sadface
