Mass Effect Downloadable Content Dissapointment

Posted in Technology/Cool Stuff, Video Games, Xbox 360 with tags , , , on October 20, 2008 by jayngo26

I write this post with almost regret. Mass Effect was one of the best video games I have ever played. I had virtually no complaints about the game whatsoever. I often try to figure out which game I like better-Mass Effect or The Elder Scrolls Oblivion. I personally gave both games a 10 out of 10. And while I love the gameplay in Oblivion better, I prefer the Sci-Fi story of Mass Effect.

Now, on to downloadable content for the Xbox 360. Part of what kept Oblivion so fresh and amazing for me was the loads of QUALITY downloadable content that was released for it. In my opinion it is probably the best add-on stuff to date- for any game. Which gave me very high hopes when I heard that Bioware was going to release downloadable content for Mass Effect. While I really, really enjoyed “Bring Down the Sky”, it only took me around two hours (those silly landmines added to that) and the price tag was a little high in my opinion for the length of the mission.

I guess I had a lot of great ideas in my own head of what Bioware COULD of done for extra content. I know, that more could still come, but sadly I have heard no news on that front. Considering we are talking about an entire universe out there, you would think the brilliant minds at Bioware could come up with something great like Bethesda did with Oblivion.

I know Mass Effect 2 is in production and I know Bioware is hard at work on that, but please give us more extra content!
