fair enough i was under the impression he was as (un)important as zaeed and kasumi
[QUOTE=Hamsterjuice;34828864]fair enough i was under the impression he was as (un)important as zaeed and kasumi[/QUOTE]Only surviving member of an ancient race that's been extinct for 50,000 years. Totally not important.
Take a look at the clarification on the forums [release]- “From Ashes” includes the Prothean squad mate, an adventure on Eden Prime, a new weapon, and an alternate appearance for every squad mate. Note that these alternate appearances are in addition to the ones already advertised in the CE. - The Collectors Edition has been advertised from the beginning as containing a bonus character/mission, but we were not at liberty to provide the details. The Prothean is optional content that is certainly designed to appeal to long-time fans, which is why he is part of the CE offering (the version many fans would be likely to purchase). Mass Effect 3 is a complete – and a huge game - right out of the box. - The content in “From Ashes” was developed by a separate team (after the core game was finished) and not completed until well after the main game went into certification. - The Collectors Edition has been sold out in most places for some time now, and is becoming very hard to find (many players prefer not to purchase the digital version). As such, we wanted to make this content available so that SE buyers could also incorporate the Prothean into their game. We’ll be releasing someimages and video about this pack in the coming days. As always, we are extremely thankful for all of your support. We pulled out all of the stops to make Mass Effect 3 the best game ever, and we can't wait for you all to experience it. [/release]
So by the fact that it was created long after the game went into certification, I'm assuming the actual character has no effect on the story? (Outside of the actual mission the character comes from) I'm guessing probably so, seeing as how that's Bioware's newer method of storytelling, introduce a load of stuff that is hardly touched on later on. Joy
I wasn't going to buy ME3 anyway, but now I have a reason to feel superior to the people that do buy it anyway.

[QUOTE=The golden;34829643]Bullshit.[/QUOTE] And what reason do you have to say that? hmm? anything?
[QUOTE=hoodoo456;34829685]And what reason do you have to say that? hmm? anything?[/QUOTE] Because EA and Bioware are totally very reputable for honesty and reliability.
[QUOTE=The golden;34829690]Because EA and Bioware are totally very reputable for honesty and reliability.[/QUOTE] they are. you have a problem with that? maybe not EA, but bioware is still trustworthy.
[QUOTE=Mad Chatter;34829410]I wasn't going to buy ME3 anyway, but now I have a reason to feel superior to the people that do buy it anyway.[/QUOTE] i'm not about the defend bioware for being awful but this is retarded
I must be the only one who thinks him having a Jamaican accent is fucking hilarious "Dey be assuming direct control mon" Also [MEDIA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JG4-rNbvGus&feature=related[/MEDIA]
I [B]LOATHE[/B] DLC like this. Just include it in the game or give it for free. It's just money grabbing.
Am I the only one who thinks that "Prothean squad member" idea is just terrible (and silly) storywise ? Like it does not make reallly sense
I haven't bought (and not planning to buy either) BF3 because of EA bullshit and I guess ME3 is going to share the same fate. They don't deserve the money. EDIT: Actually the DLC itself is Bioware's fault, leaving such a huge story thing for some petty DLC. Disquisting. Shows us how much they care about the real story compared to all the gay sex. Fuck Bioware and fuck EA.
Hahaha that is another reason why people pirate games You'll be getting LESS content if you bought it
I expected the Protheans to have a more deeper voice.. much like the harbingers, but no, its just some african accent thats not deep at all :/
Holy shit, a prothean, that's a pretty big fucking deal story wise but nope, it is going to be some subplot you have to PAY EXTRA for. Also his design is horrible, he looks like a collector, and while collectors are really fucked up protheans, protheans didn't look like them originally. Also why the fuck does he have a Jamaican accent? I always saw them as very serious beings, not Jamaicans in space. The Prothean message in the first game didn't even sound Jamaican.

im pretty sure that the prothean is IN GAME, all the dlc does is make him a squad mate character, he serves the same story purpose otherwise
[QUOTE=RichyZ;34831565]protheans are a collection of several species working together [b]were[/b][/QUOTE] Were does it say that? The games give off the impression that they were a race.
Don't care, got CE.
Soon they will start cutting the movement from the full games and you have to buy them as a DLC.
[QUOTE=Nikota;34824617]Have any of you guys ever been to Biowares forums? Their staff is just full of fucking assholes.[/QUOTE] Nothing new there. I recall, remembering they bashed on developers on The Witcher 2, while rating themselves on their games, such as DA2 10/10. If only someone can post that picture, where they bashed on them, and saying how their game was better than theirs, and better 'game play'. Just lost a lot of respect there. [b]Edit[/b] Only difference between them, is that, Witcher 2 actually gave their DLC for free, and constantly made improvement and visual effects, in each updates. Instead of pulling out contents. It's pretty low of those Biowares members to say such crap to another developers, that did nothing to them, other then, making a good quality game, as it should be, without having to remove any content from the final release. Other than that, I really can't wrap my head as to why they had to do that, against another developer that wasn't even "competing" with them, and to compare with their DA2 or DA1 with another game, being "better"
Whats up with EA and launch DLC's?
I havent played mass effect, but let me try understanding whats going on: The Proetheans are a 'extinct' and mysterious alien race vanished over 50,000 years ago in the ME universe, but then EA is having an idea of bringing them back for the sole reason of milking the customers of money? So they are basically breaking the ME lore because they want money?

But in this case, they took out a very important part of the story, the very lore of ME. It's almost like saying, you take out the ending of the story, only to make it into a DLC after. Lol LordzBacon, how sad. Rating me over here :v:
Great, they've managed to fuck up one of my favourite game series :(
[QUOTE=VikCreamCake;34832294]Great, they've managed to fuck up one of my favourite game series :([/QUOTE] They fucked it up with ME2, not as badly as this. Pretty damn close though.

[QUOTE=SatansSin;34832391]They fucked it up with ME2, not as badly as this. Pretty damn close though.[/QUOTE] I would hardly call ME2 fucked up, it was an amazing game and I think it's on par with ME1, but this will be downright unplayable for me.
