It's great to get together with the crew again -especially having Wrex as a squadmate again, but the new DLC, Citadel, is also hilarious.

For example: Grunt passes out in the shower during the party you can throw after the DLC is complete, Edi & Traynor have an awkward conversation about Traynor's attraction to her voice, & Javik ends up in Blasto 7.

Everyone seems to really love Citadel, and it was definitely written with fans of the series in mind.

I haven't played anything but From Ashes. Which wasn't bad, but it definitely could have been better for the cash. I never used Javik as a squad member either. That said, he'd probably be a great companion for a biotic Shepard on higher difficulties.

The thing about the DLC, though, is that he only has that one main mission, and assorted other possible conversations/events (like talking with <insert character> around the Normandy). If you don't take him on missions, you don't really get to know him all that well.

Which is true of all the squad members, to be fair.

Unlike any of the other DLC though, From Ashes gives you a character you can use in all missions & any of the DLC that allows you to bring squadmates. Sure, you gotta "get to know him" by taking him on missions & talking to him in his room (like the rest), but additional dialogue is available in most of the DLC missions & on the Asari homeworld. He's also way, way more interesting than Kaidan or Vega.

As far as DLCs go, From Ashes gives you the most bang for your buck. If you're really into Aria & want to see a female Turian, Omega's pretty good. Leviathan is probably the hardest of the DLCs & it gives you some background on the creators of the Reapers (Whom ended up being their first harvest). Interesting lore-wise, but no new enemies, temporary squadmates, & lots of reapers to kill.

Citadel is mostly fan service. Hilarious fan-service, but it gives you a chance to get together with everyone of your surviving squadmates (And Mordin sorta makes a cameo, beyond the grave. Didn't notice anything from Thane though). The mission itself was probably the easiest of all the DLCs as I think I was done the fighting in under 2 hours & spent another hour or so partying with the crew.

That's true. I accidentally spoiled something hilarious between Shepard and Javik with the new DLC...

I think whether or not From Ashes matters really comes down to whether or not you want to know more about the Protheans, and really meet one. Not that he is the embodiment of their culture, by any means--the character is based around representing only one specific aspect of the Protheans. But it's still very interesting to see his take on things.

And I have to say, it's actually kinda nice. The "legacy of the ancients" angle is very heavily featured in RPGs. And not without merit--that basis formed the foundation for almost all modern human civilization. But it gets old never being able to "humanize" (for lack a better word) the actual civilizations. The interactions between Liara, who had dedicated her life to studying the Protheans, and Javik, who is nothing like what she imagined, is particularly wonderful.

But I'm a lore nerd. So.

I do intend to buy all the DLC in time. I'm interested in the builders, and I definitely want to take back Omega. Had I been more gainfully employed in the past 9 months, I would have. Now I'm just balancing my time with my gaming agenda, so I'll be nabbing things as they are on sale or I have time to actually play them.

Every review I've read about the Citadel DLC has been positive; it seems most people agree it's the best DLC for the series since Lair of the Shadow Broker.

I own all the non-weapon DLC for ME2, but I haven't bought a single one for ME3 yet. I'll be finishing up my Fem-Shep Insanity Renegade run in the next day or two (only have Legions loyalty, the Suicide Mission, and Arrival left), and then I'll probably go on a spending spree and get From Ashes and Citadel (perhaps Leviathan and Omega... we'll see).

I'll admit, reading reviews of this latest DLC has me all sorts of excited. Much like DA2, I loved ME3's gameplay and hated the ending coming down to limited choices that don't give your choices any value or resolution. Even if this is all fan service, one-liners, and comic relief, I actually think that the relationships are more important than the gameplay itself... so Citadel is just what I want.

Why yes, yes that is a giant playable geth...

The big Geth seems to have some sort of damaging shield, that doesn't actually do a whole lot of damage. If you want kills, just follow one around and wait until they use it - it stuns the enemy while doing slow D.O.T. making it easy to get the kills yourself.

Seems handy for reapers, as I haven't seen one 1 shotted by a Banshee while using it.

I guess I didn't hear it the first time, but during the mission part of Citadel on my Renegade Shep you're covering for your squad while they go up a ladder & Liara exclaimed, "No fair, I'm on a ladder!"

Heh.

The giant geth is more about being tanky than wasting everything you come across.
The biggest advantage it brings to multiplayer is that it allows reasonably competent players that usually stick with silver difficulty to participate in gold/platinum without holding everyone back too much.

So THAT's why one of my last matches had me on my Demolisher Engineer, on Gold, with 3 Juggernauts! I pretty much just followed them around & Regar Carbided anything in front of their shields. Didn't even really need my grenades except for armored stuffs.

The new classes are a bit finicky. Their theme is skill-based play.
--Geth Jug is a tank. Your job is to get everything's attention and not die while your teammates kill them. Fails without teamwork because you kill things slowly alone.
--Krogan is pretty beastly with his hammer, but try combining it with detonations primed by teammates and everything turns to jelly. Downside is slow wind-up makes it easy to be sync-killed, and unable to take cover.
--Turian charge goes where you point rather than at enemies. Great mobility once you adjust but easy to ***** up if you don't.
--Collector's got some great abilities and a "do more damage, take more damage" power-up, but it needs planning to keep swarms up and the slow-moving Doom Bubble.
--Talon Crossbowman's got amazing mines, but the crossbow's currently a bit too weak. Once that's fixed though he'll be about managing grenades and ammo types. In the current form you just go for the mines and absolutely pop everything. Fragile though.
--Alliance Infiltration Unit Infiltrator Unit Alliance Infiltrating Alliance Unit is the most straightforward. Very fragile without repair matrix, but that thing's 40% DR and a free medpack. If she can keep her grenades up she's a monster, able to tank on Gold and the damage of a Shotgun Cloaker. Snap Freeze primes anything in its arc, so team up with someone with an area detonator like Overload. Make friends with a Krogan's Electrical Hammer to absolutely melt groups of enemies.

Oh, and he's great at attracting enemies, as you probably noticed. I found the character can be boring at times, but I love it when I got good teammates on gold. They'll run around and once I round up a bunch banshees/atlas/etc on me, they come back and nuke the **** out of everything. Grenades and hammers end up wiping out a good 5-6 mobs in one go, then we repeat.

I have to admit, I'm surprised at how long the ME3 multiplayer has been going on successfully, and how long they've been giving new content for it.

I was expecting one or two free DLC with new classes, then for it to die down rather quickly. I wonder how much they're making off the packs?

I generally don't like supporting EA and would never pay for the packs regularly, but every multiplayer DLC, I put $20 towards packs to try to show a little support in one way or another.

The whole multiplayer aspect was just an experiment and in my opinion, turned out to be the best part of the game.



EDIT: I still think the single player mode was great, it just happened that multiplayer was more addicting.

Well, I for one like ME3's single-player mode... besides the ending of course. Replaying it on insanity is pretty fun, though the hardest levels so far have been the multiplayer map analogs; having enemies attack from multiple corridors means you need to constantly be aware of your surroundings and on the move. The single-player levels on the other hand effectively let me plop down behind one wall and spam singularity/warp + throw and kill everything with very little risk. But I play the games for the story primarily and not the challenging combat... though ME3's combat is definitely the best out of the trilogy.

On a somewhat related note, I told someone (Dig?) before that I didn't find Fem-Shep's voicing very good in ME, and only adequate in ME2 (she sounds silly when she tries to sound threatening). In ME3 though, her voicing acting is top-notch. I've enjoyed the dialogue immensely.

Currently at Priority: Citadel II. Hoping to get to the Citadel DLC pretty soon... can't wait! Smiley: grin

I loved the single player for ME3. Thing is, I rate the endings as about par for the course with the story they chose. I don't like the ultimate weapon kind of tale, but I think they pulled it off the best that can actually be expected of it. Why they went that route, though, I have no clue.

And yeah, Fem Shep's acting was amazing in ME3.

I'm sure I'm about a year late to the story, but I just today read about how the original plans for the ending were the same kind of "pick a choice" ending, but the story behind the Reapers was supposed to revolve around dark energy. Basically, using the mass relays and the mass effect was destroying dark matter and creating dark energy, which will ultimately cause the galaxy to be destroyed. The Reapers learned about this and decided to use the Harvests as a way to keep this in check. Because Shepard threw off their timeline 3 years ago, the end is a choice between destroying the Reapers and trying desperately to figure out some other way to stop the destruction of the galaxy, or to force humanity to become a Reaper and hope that it's enough to rectify the damage.

I guess the tie-ins would be Tali's recruitment from ME2 which never explains why the star is going supernova, and a whole bunch of info on eezo and mass effects and whatnot.

Meh, doesn't sound any better than the current ending, and obviously it was never fleshed out, as the story in ME3 is all about Synthetics destroying organics to keep them from destroying themselves.

They could have fused the two stories to make things interesting, though. As in, synthesis could have been one option to "regulate" things.

A shame they didn't explore that.

And, that said, I do think the original story is better. But I also think the one they went with has more mass market appeal.

Ending a beloved franchise didn't exactly have more market appeal hence the bemoanings of the endings.

My paragon shep was modeled after after my fiance & given the options, synthesis certainly fit within what I thought she would do, given the situation. Boaning as many of the chicks she could was what I would have wanted her to do, mind you.

My renegade Shep actually hadnt done any of the DLC, picked Kaiden over Ashley, & had the full crew's loyalties & survival in ME2. Had Morinth, though, so I doubt she'll show up in Citadel. Might as well play through to the end & kill all the reapers with the expanded ending...

So, ME3 single-player question...

I'm about halfway (by my count) through ME3 on my Insanity run as an adept. Adept, as I'm sure you know, just power-spams and blows stuff up like crazy - honestly, ME3 is easier than ME2 on Insanity so far. Anyway, I never, EVER use my gun. I've bought all the fish and models I can, because those are srs bzns, and a good power suit of armor. Now I have like 400k in credits and I have no idea what, if anything, I should be spending it on.

The only Spectre purchase that looks good is the Widow for a sniper rifle, but that'll only be used by Garrus and honestly it's not significantly better than what he currently has. I tend to revolve through my characters depending on what I know I'll be facing; I'll take EDI and Garrus or Kaidan for 2x overloads and Javik and Liara if I'm fighting primarily Reaper stuff. So should I be getting them super awesome things? I tend to have them focus on powers too, though (namely taking down shields, or setting up Biotic effects for me to explode).

TL;DR I have credits, don't use guns, and don't know what to spend it on.

I thought Insanity for single player was balanced much better than ME2... except Marauder Shields... but I used my max level character for Insanity in ME2, which makes things 10x more difficult, I'm told.

I did my insanity run on soldier and even then, I remember having lots and lots of extra credits. Most gear is free and I only used a small portion of the guns.
In the end, I think I just upgraded all my guns just to "complete" things, but I found it is worth it to max the guns for your squad first if you haven't done so already. It surprised me how much more damage my squad put out (and I never rely on them for anything for some reason). I found SMGs and, surprisingly, snipers worked well for them. Assault rifles have issue with armor (ammo powers and mods help a lot though), shotguns got everyone killed, and they like body shots with pistols for some reason.

Weight reduction and spare ammo can be significant when upgrading, so there is that. Since you use your squad powers and they shoot regardless if you want or not, this allows them to use bigger weapons while keeping cool down low (and maybe taking alternative upgrade options).

For adept, personally, I'd max out a Carnifax, Paladin, or Wraith then whatever your squad uses and be done with guns. This either makes you a light weight sniper (between power uses) or a force to be reckoned with at close range (in case something sneaks up on you).

Widow or Black Widow are good too, but heavy. For teammates, the Widow is significantly better as it's higher damage, lower weight, and ammo doesn't matter to them.
You could also invest in a gun that's not meant for damage such as the falcon. It staggers most everything, which may save your *** if a phantom gets too close or prevents Cerberus from dodging your powers.

As far as what else to buy... no, there really isn't anything else (I believe).

A fully leveled Adept is also easy-mode in ME3, to be honest. Not saying Insanity is a cake walk with them, but I have difficulty seeing anything actually competing with their ability to control a battle field.

Just with Adept Skills, you have Singularity and Pull, which give you a ridiculous ability to lock down enemies when fully leveled. Them plus Warp to set up combos. Throw, Warp, and Shockwave to detonate combos. Warp for Barriers and Armor. Shockwave and Throw if anything gets close. Shockwave for anything through a wall or crates, etc. Cluster Grenades to @#$% everything up more.

Then they can take Energy Drain, to strip shields, Stasis to add even more control, Barrier for heightened defenses and more biotic oomph, Reave for even more combos and damage (particularly vs. armor/barriers), Dark Channel for rapid biotic setups, Warp Ammo if you don't want to focus on detonations for a mission. Nearly everything you cna get is useful.

Not to mention how absurdly good at detonating they are. Singularity -> Warp -> Throw/Shockwave for a double detonation. If you have the Omega DLC, you can use lash to expand this to three, or combine flare and a detonation for huge damage.

Yeah, biotic explosions are awesome!

Finally got to some Citadel content; specifically, the missions. Great so far, but tough as nails for an adept: EVERY enemy has Shields. Argh, shields... my kryptonite! Still, I'm close to the end of the missions and they have been great so far; just the right mixture of hilarious, difficult (SHIELDS!!!) and lore-filled. Selecting EDI for The Battle of the Normandy was a great idea. Her expression on the cab, and Joker and Shepard's reaction, had me with tears streaming.

Dialogue is great so far, and having Wrex back is fun, although a bit useless on Insanity as even with the amazing health and regen he tends to die. Very much looking forward to the end of the content, as I hear that's where the real value of the DLC is. Still, it's held up quite well so far, besides the somewhat awkward intro, which basically went:

Anderson: Shepard! How you holding up?
Shepard: Well, you know. Trying to build the Crucible. I bet you have it tough, huh?
Anderson: Each hour is a battle for survival. But know what? I have an apartment on the Citadel. Go blow off some steam! We need you at your best!
Shepard: Uh, Anderson? Isn't every hour a struggle for survival?
Anderson: Yeah, but I'm not using it. Besides, I left like 15 minutes of monologue about my life on datapads all around the place. It would be a shame to waste them.
Shepard: Sir, I really think I should be getting a move on to, you know, try and save our homeworld-
Anderson: Dammit Sherpard, that's an order!
Sherpard: ... Yes sir. Oh! Hot tub!

I don't have any single player DLC, so I don't know how they come in to the game, but...

At least in multiplayer, there are a few weapons that deal a ton of damage of shields. One example, the acolyte, will pretty much remove shields from anything with 1-2 shots. This can also be used with a power amplifier (DLC mod) since it is a pistol. I imagine they have the same bonuses in single player.

So I finished up most of the Citadel stuff, including the party. Honestly, I felt like the party was... almost a little bit of let-down, from all the hype I heard. Yes, some of the conversations were pretty funny, and it was a hoot watching ME2 characters interact with ME3 ones, but the most "LOL" moments were not part of the party; like Joker's story about how he killed a bunch of Cerberus troops with an Atlas, or Zaeed's reactions with the claw game, or Traynor's game of space chess. Thane's memorial was really well done, and while I enjoyed Mordin's recordings, I wish they had had the original voice actor do them.

Still, all-in-all it was a good time. A good way to end the game... though I'm still right before Thessia, so the game isn't quite over... but I might just stop it here Smiley: tongue

Thessia is good, and the missions after that (there's still a few) are worth doing.


Oh, I've beaten the game already. I'm just saying that I feel like leaving on a high note, which is what the Citadel DLC offered. The ending is still totally BLAH.

The Mordin VA thing has always confused me. IIRC, they never even contacted the original actor to see if he wanted to reprise his role. That just seems odd. I get tightening a budget so you think you can't recruit him, but it's (to me, at least) worse to burn that bridge by not even asking than by offering too little.

Be up front about the fact that Mordin is playing a lesser role, which means the budget for the talent there is lower. If the VA is fine with it, awesome. If not, at least he understands why things are the way they are, and actually had the final say.

It's just so odd to me.

What do you think about Citadel DLC? Is it worth buying?


Depends on what you expect out of it, and what kind of player you are. It's great if you really loved the characters and their interactions. It's good for some extra lore (not as good as, say, Leviathan or From Ashes, though). It's good if you want a "happy ending" (even though it's not an ending). It's AMAZING if you have credits to spare and love gambling and minigames. It's ok if you like combat. It's downright terrible if you felt ME3 is supposed to be gritty and dark and hate levity during wartime.

I think it was worth it, but $15 is a little steep for 4 hours of content. Though there's a lot of optional stuff with the Armax Arena and the games at the arcade/casino, which could add several more hours I suppose.

Oh, and you get an assault rifle with infinite ammo. That's kinda neat, I guess?
