Nothing that I know of. After the Extended cut I would be surprised if there was any more single player content.

post #182 of 223

I'm fairly sure the singleplayer and multiplayer DLC isn't handled by the same teams, which is why we've been seeing a lot of multiplayer stuff. The other resources have been going into the E.C. up until this point, so yeah, it's pretty obvious why there hasn't been any single player content. The developers themselves said the E.C. was a re-prioritization, so other single-player content was pushed back to make room for their focusing on E.C. first and foremost.

 

This stuff takes time. They can't just pump it out, and if they did it would just be crap like the last quarter of the single player campaign anyway. Seriously, it's not even the end of summer. Probably see a new single player mission this fall.

Any early impressions of the new SP DLC? I endeavor to play from ME1 with all possible DLC save the weapon/clothes packs.

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

While I selected "destroy" in my initial playthrough, I've warmed to "refuse." I wish this option were handled slightly differently in that I feel it is the most natural selection for my Shepard and therefore deserves more attention. I'm still not certain which ending is the best. I'd like to flirt with control a bit more and I plan to do just that.

I beat the Leviathan DLC. Worth playing for the back story. The gameplay isn't action packed, however. I love the new scenery though. Looks great.

how long is it? after i bought from the ashes dlc i vowed never to buy another dlc pack for me3 again because that $%^ was a serious rip off

It will last a few hours. Much more content than the Ashes DLC. What you have to realize is that the Ashes DLC is spread out throughout the game (in that the character gets special cutscenes for him, etc).

In ME2, the DLC characters didn't get anything special outside of their DLC mission.

The Leviathan DLC blows the whole mythology wide open, and is VERY integral to the backstory. Its worth getting, I assure you.

i've played and beaten me3 through i cant even tell you how many playthroughs, so i've pretty much discovered all the relevant scenes and dialogue pertaining to javik, what pisses me off is that it seems like something that big, a living prothean would have more of a build up, be a bigger deal, you get like 1 scene by the embassies where other people even notice, also it felt like the whole from ashes "dlc" was actually originally meant to be in the main game and then removed so they can charge you for it, its a bull$%^ practice

 

 

all in all, it wasn't worth an extra 10 dollars for content that should have been in the game to begin with

 

 

im still on the fence about leviathon, i think i'll just wait till all the dlc is finally rolled out so i can buy them all at once (hopefully in a bundle deal) and have an actual reason to replay through an entire campaign instead of going back in doing it piecemeal everytime ea feels like dropping another dlc

I feel the same way, although I have the collectors edition. I thought ME3 was too linear, too closed and felt rushed. The upside was the better combat.

ME2 is the best ME. I loved three though. I'm tempted on getting it on the Wii U for the better gfx. XD

me1 had the best story and felt the most like an actual rpg, me2 had the best character development and after buying all of the dlc feels like the most complete and fulfilling game, me3 didn't have any of those, it barely had closure

 

 

it was a good game but as a huge fan of the series all i see is what wasn't in the game when i play it, all of the missed opportunities, all the big build ups across 2 games only to not pay off in the end, thats my main complaint on 3

post #191 of 223
ME3 still has more to come. I can't wait for the Omega DLC. We get to use Aria! I hope...

You know, I was just thinking about this.

 

Javik is basically a living god for the Hanar. You meet a single Hanar at the embassies who gets a bit flustered, and that's pretty much the extent of that. They really could have done a better scene involving a bunch of Hanar freaking out at the Citadel over there being an Enkindler there.

 

I'm hoping they have some DLC involving a trip to the Hanar / Drell homeworld. Bringing Javik along would be pretty damn amusing. Not holding my breath tho.

Still want a Hanar and cannon strapped Elcor party members. biggrin.gif

Omega comes in a month's time. So excited for this. Its supposedly twice as long as any DLC released so far, though I'm sure they don't count the planet traversin ones in ME2. I hated that one. Yeah, it was long... and repetitive.
post #194 of 223

See, I *loved* the planet-side quests in ME2 because they were basically an homage to ME1, which is still and always will be my favorite. The Hammerhead was pretty damn fun to pilot around IMO.


Still, even if you didn't really like those parts, you have to admit they added diversity to the gameplay. As far as "long and repetitive" goes, ME3 for me has been fitting this description because the gameplay is pretty much the exact same thing throughout. Combat, combat, combat. Albeit very good and polished combat. But some exploration would be welcomed, which is why I really enjoyed the underwater part in Leviathan despite it being so short. It's like, "hey, a new gameplay mechanic! Cool!"

post #195 of 223
Lol, I hated it....so much. If that's what they took out from the first game, I can see why. biggrin.gif

I feel it's just extra fluff with no real substance. Kind of like RPGs with lots of grinding. It adds hours to the gameplay, but doesn't really add anything to the game. If that Hammerhead part was better integrated, focused and less... generic, I may have liked it. As it was, it was so video game-y and felt so disconnected from how the feels, and plays. It detached me from the story and universe, and instead made it a chore... and video game chore. Something that could've been made on the first Playstation.

The underwater part in Leviathan was awesome, and like I mentioned, it was well integrated and focused. That's what made it so good. If it was just one open, generic looking map with generic fetch quests like the Hammerhead sequences... I would've been put off. I was sad that it was such a short part of it.
