Exactly what kind of agenda do you expect a company to have? Yes they want to release a good product to maintin their brand but at the end of the day they are in the industry to make money, not to get a warm and fuzzy feeling because people are happy they got cheap games and things for free.

If publishers and Devs like EA / Bioware do not continue to make money from games either via the initial release or DLC then quite simply they will stop making them due to a lack of available budget then where would gamers be? Yes there will always be indy games but you will never see something the scale and quality of the ME universe come out of a very small budget indy dev.

Hey maybe im wrong and thats fine, i just feel everyone should get the same content no matter what edition they get.

Well see the thing about this DLC is that it does not contribute to the main story from what I am reading. So you don't have to play it to understand what is going on (see ps3 starting off with ME 2). So far the story has done a good job at covering everything including this "new" race.

Yea it sucks that it doesn't come with and it should since it's day 1, but as long as it doesn't take away from the story its not that bad.

No steam and additional charge to get all of the game release... ill use a friends console copy or get creative.

Origin needs a big overhaul before I invest in it again.

Day 1 DLC, no thanks. I prefer to get a complete game when I buy a game, not have to keep paying to experience the whole game universe.
Expansions are another story. WoW expansions added IMMENSELY to the game, same with starcraft and warcraft expansions.

Their whole story is BS about how it's a separate team and developed outside the main game. The fact is they decided from the very start for day 1 DLC.

If you piss people off they will either not buy your game, or will get it other ways.

If this add-on is truly as minuscule and non-story related as BioWare claim, then why on earth would they even bother creating a character that has such incredible importance to the lore and story?

Exactly, Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
it is a race that was supposed to be destroyed 50,000 years ago in the previous reaper invasion. One just happened to survive, ya there won't be impacts in the lore.

Whats the prothean going to do for the story to make it complete game? He's going to shoot bullets at reapers end of story. Why shouldnt they delay the game and make all of the dlc they have planned now , then release the game later? Right then the game would be complete. - _ -

Really wouldn't be any different than if they had made Legion a DLC for ME2. This DLC will just add another party member with a couple quests and conversions. Heck knowing Bioware you will probably be able to have sex with it.

I guess i look at this like Shale in Dragon Age...getting that DLC did not radically change the game world...just added a golem that hated birds and mages. You can play the game just fine with the DLC and not miss anything. Also know what was in the DLC did not spoil anything in the game.
