The long awaited Mass Effect 3 "Omega" add-on has been dated and priced, and at this week's New York Comic-Con, BioWare is assuring fans that this one's going to be big. Come November 27, Mass Effect 3 players on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 can snag the DLC for for $15 or 1200 Microsoft Points. If you're a European PS3 owner, expect the "Omega" content a day later, on November 28.
That will make "Omega," or whatever it ends up being titled, the most expensive Mass Effect DLC to date, but it's supposed to be "double the size" of any ME3 add-on so far, says producer Mike Gamble. Compared to Mass Effect 3: Leviathan, anyway.
As the temporary title pretty much suggests, you'll be headed back to the former mining colony -- during the events of the game, not after -- where Omega's former queen bee Aria T'loak enlists Shepard's aid in taking back her turf from Cerberus. And really, who can so "no" to Aria?
The DLC's plot follows right after the Mass Effect 3: Invasion prequel comic, when Aria lost control of Omega to General Petrovsky. Petrovsky will also be returning, Gamble stated, and we'll be seeing our very first female turian. Expect new enemies as well, most likely of the Cerberus variety.
Why not give Bioware a chance to justify the cost of this "Omega" DLC? Who knows this add-on will truly make a difference, as the company guaranteed fans "this one's going to be big."
Dude, the last DLC on Mass Effect 2, The Arrival, cost 800 M$ (it says 560 now, but I'm pretty sure I paid 800 back then) and I finished it in like an hour, and Mass Effect 2 is probably the best game in the franchise, but Bioware was already sucking ass back then.
Besides, like I said, I already know how it's gonna end, the only physical result (gamewise) you're gonna get from it is getting Omega as a war asset, it won't change the game in any other way, especially its bad ending, perhaps you'll learn more about Aria, Omega and Cerberus, maybe even find Patriarch alive but it's nothing the Mass Effect Wiki can't fill.
ALL of the ME3's DLC up have been a waste of money, Javik? He shouldn't even be DLC in the first place, that only gives you one character on the already lacking squad roster and no loyalty mission like in ME2, Leviathan? What's the use of having the race that CREATED the Reapers if they won't do a damn USEFUL thing about it? Why couldn't they tell us what was the Catalyst? I mean, Shepard even gets the option to ask about the Crucible, why not the Catalyst as well? I mean, they SHOULD know about it, they've been there forever! Or at least deduce what it is "hmm, the Crucible's arms measure the exact same length as..." but no...
Again, totally, pointless DLC...

Anyway, November 27th is fast approaching, so we only have to wait for a few weeks and see whether or not this DLC is indeed, worth its price of $15. Otherwise, consider this add-on as junk.

So much butthurt...Its quite funny. Well I'll have to see whether to get it after i get more info.

omega was already kind of a war asset but now its probably 100 more of something. Which like the rest of ME3 makes no difference at all.

None of Bioware's DLCs are worth their price any more, sadly. I have no reason to think this one will be any different, not to mention that none of this will only feel like more filler instead of a veritable part of the story and universe.

I'm pretty sure that this DLC ends with you getting Omega as a war asset

Obvious sex scene included.

Sweet! I've been wondering if we'd see Omega on ME3, seeing as Aria talked about taking it back. Definitely picking the DLC up once the first ME sees release on PS3.
