Being a Mass Effect fan isn't always easy. It's been a turbulent trilogy for longtime fans and newcomers alike. From the good to the bad, there's a lot to cover. In addition to covering my opinion each individual game, I'll be talking about the overarching themes and of course... the ending.
As far as downloadable content goes, I've had mixed opinions. From Ashes was great, but it shouldn't probably shouldn't have been downloadable content to begin with. Leviathan was pretty interesting, and shed some light on the Reaper lore. Omega was very standard, and ended up being the worst of them, in my opinion. Citadel on the other hand, represents both the best and worst of BioWare. It's probably my favourite add-on for Mass Effect 3, but it also comes off as extremely out-of-place, for a variety of reasons. Allow me to explain the highs and lows of Mass Effect 3's swan song, as it were.
Here are some of my more recent blogs.

Hello all. I wanted to write a quick follow-up to my last post, "Indoctrination Theorists Say the Darndest Things, Part II". For those involved in the discussion, this is essentially my way of outlining the major point against the Indoctrination Theory. If you aren't interesed, or don't care, move on. Believe it or not, people still hold out hope for this inane dribble, so I'm going to write about it. More than anything, it's an organised and detailed rebuttal to many of IronicAtheist's points raised on my previous article.
If it seems irrelevant, or if it feels like I'm ranting, I apologise, but as I said, it's mainly a follow-up to my previous post. I'll try to keep it short.

Remember the indoctrination theory? The brilliant and ingenious community project that would forever change the face of gaming? Well, friends, it's still going strong, and the evidence? It's still piling up. It's obvious to anyone with half a brain that the indoctrination theory is 100% proven. Like the Black Hole Theory, the IT is flawless, and denying it at this point is just ignorance. Go ahead, see for yourself.
Nah, I'm just kidding with you. For those of you who haven't read my other blog, "Indoctrination Theorists Say the Darndest Things". This is essentially a compilation of hilarious quotes from the craziest of Indoctrination Theorists. I started off my finding older quotes... until I got into an argument on YouTube that lasts to …
Omega is a mixed bag for me, one that simultaneously invokes apathy and pleasant surprises. It's not exactly Lair of the Shadow Broker quality (and yes, I'm always going to judge Mass Effect DLC by that standard), but it's a solid if somewhat overpriced add-on in it's own right. Whether or not you'll ultimately want to buy it depends on your level of dedication to Mass Effect 3. If you've already sworn off of it, it won't change your mind. If you are still going strong with your copy, then I say either go for it, or wait for a price drop in the future. At the end of the day however, it's still a fairly cut and dry experience, and certainly one that you can afford to pass on. Underneath some of its generic offerings however, are moments of bril…
