"I don't even have a clue what the dlc are. I'm not interested in the online me3 ones. As for me2, the 2nd best game in the series, I know of shadow lair and another one, but are these just 2 hour sidequests or do any of them have depth like awakening in da origins? And how is the dlc for me1?"
Okay, there's a lot to cover, and I LOVE the Mass Effect games, so here we go.
Mass Effect has 2 DLC's, and only one is worth getting. Bringing Down the Sky I think is what it's called. It's the good one, it short (most ME DLC is) but it's solid and good stuff, get to see Batarians for the first time in the series as well. Pinnacle Station is totally forgettable and I would skip it. It's not even made by Bioware, and it shows. It's basically just a combat arena.
Mass Effect 2 has more DLC. I forget most of their names, as I haven't played my Mass Effect games in quite a while. Arrival was a late one that helped lead into ME3 as I recall. There are some item/gear DLC packs, each one offers some new gun(s) and maybe something else. Nothing required here, no story stuff, but I bought ALL the single player DLC for ALL three games regardless. And there are some cool new guns in some of these packs. The Kasumi character/mission DLC was a good one, she's a cool character, and the mission was fun and unique. I'm trying to remember what the other mission ones were. The free vehicle one was alright, and free (part of the Cerberus pack for buying the game new, I think). Lair of the Shadow Broker was another really cool one.
Mass Effect 3, Citadel, the last DLC they did for story, I think, is awesome. It's the longest one I've played, and it's got some cool new story stuff, and getting more time with your crew members is just awesome, especially some of these characters you have known and interacted with since the first game. I haven't even played Omega or Leviathan yet, lol. I need to get on that. The Ashes one, whatever it's called, is good. You get the Prothean squad member. That one was free with my purchase of the Collector's Edition, I think.
The thing is, pretty much all the single-player DLC is fairly short, usually 1-2 hours for the mission. But they're WELL done, new stuff, and it's MORE Mass Effect, so I have no problem with them being somewhat short.
And you aren't going to get something to the tune of Dragon Age's Awakening. That was a full on expansion, and Mass Effect never did a full expansion as a DLC.
I easily say all the single player DLC for the Mass Effect games (aside from Pinnacle Station) are all worth getting, especially if the love the games, their setting and universe, and these characters and so on. --- To the mattresses. 3DS code: 2621-3902-1737, PSN: Justice_98405, Xbox Live: Justice98405
