Apparently this is the final piece of DLC for Mass Effect 3 and Commander Shepard herself(I refuse to acknowledge dude Shepard).
The dialog is corny has hell and it doesn’t have my favorite Salarian, Mordin but that music is wonderful. I don’t think I’ll get back into Mass Effect via this piece of DLC though. I picked up the “Lair of the Shadow Broker” because it contributed to the lore in a significant way. This “Citadel” piece simply looks like a reunion episode and I don’t need that yet.
The Year of the Bow continues with the inclusion of the crossbow in Battlefield 3: Aftermath.
Below is the “premiere” trailer which is quite subdued compared to the usual Battlefield raucous of the previous trailers. I don’t know why they showed it like that. Nobody is ever that calm and methodic.
Okay. A crossbow is wandering outside of the definition of a bow a bit but I think it still counts.
Another trailer for that “Close Quarters” DLC pack was released today.
It just doesn’t make any sense to me. It’s not Battlefield when there’s so little “field” to play on.
Thankfully the patch that was released late last month provided a fresh coat of paint to the Battlefield 3 experience. It’s almost an entirely different game with player rented servers, the ability to turn off morphological anti-aliasing on the PS3 and a squad feature that actually works!
It’s not entirely bug free though. I’m still witnessing problems vaulting over certain objects, sound continues to cut off for no apparent reason and some weapon animations continue to not animate properly despite me redownloading the Back to Karkand map pack.
I hope another patch will land that will finally complete this game properly.
I won’t be buying Battlefield 3′s upcoming expansion Close Quarters not because it offers infantry only maps, but because it’s community splitting paid downloadable content.
I also don’t feel they deserve any money until the glitches and bugs are fixed for the PlayStation 3 version. There’s no date on when that mega patch lands, but for now I can re-download the Back 2 Karkand freebie to fix some the bugs it introduced.
A new chess piece will be entering the combat tournament for mortals and her name is Skarlett.
Skarlet with a “K”. Would we want it any other way? I’ll probably download her and another Mortal Kombat DLC character when it goes on sale. I despise the idea of DLC characters for fighting games, but I love Mortal Kombat.
