Mass Effect 3 'Extended Cut' DLC free this summer, offers 'further clarity to the ending' {Joystiq}

Apr 5th 2012 10:27AM I hope it turns out that the indoctrination theory is correct... then they still have a lot of options open for a proper ending.

Star Wars: The Old Republic 1.2 update big enough for making-of video {Joystiq}

You can't compare these numbers.
GW had 6+ million units sold and that includes all the expansions over the years. This means that players bought anywhere from 1 up to 4 units per account.
However.. Swtor has 1.7 million active (paid subscription or in free month / trial) accounts right now.

Mass Effect 3 'From Ashes' DLC also sold separately from Collector's Edition {Joystiq}

They have another choice:
4) Give the day 1 character DLC to everyone who buys a new (not used) game.

They actually did this with ME2, DAO and DA2 and everyone was happy.

Feb 23rd 2012 9:03AM @Styli Do you know what CE means? "Collectors edition"
It's supposed to have stuff you collect. A character like that is not a collectors item unless it's a Pokemon.

BioWare docs defend subscription model, tease free-to-play iteration of classic IP {Joystiq}

Dec 29th 2011 8:50AM @Hyperion45 WoW has 50 character slots, GW has 4, with 2 more for each expansion (less than there are classes available) and they sell additional slots. They also sell gear & skill unlocks, 'bank' space, etc...

I'd rather pay a subscription and not be limited like this.

Mass Effect 3 PC requires initial internet check; no local co-op on all platforms {Joystiq}

Nov 9th 2011 9:04AM @Tappybot The point is that the game is activated on your Origin account... just like Valve games must be activated on Steam and Blizzard games must be activated on Battle.net.
This means you can't resell it but it also means you can play without the DVD and you can download it anytime and anywhere you want (again: just like Steam and Battle.net).

Nov 9th 2011 9:00AM @Dionkey Origin games are sold by various online stores (pretty much all except Steam - because Valve wants to sell the DLC themselves).

Valve games (Portal 2, L4D, ..) are Steam exclusive. You can't buy them anywhere else online.

But EA are the ones who don't like competition?

Nov 9th 2011 4:00AM @wenchwogg I'm sure it's an Origin game. It might even require Origin if it ever becomes available on Steam, just like Portal 2 / CoD / Deus Ex 3 / etc.. require Steam regardless of who sold it.

Syndicate trailer shows off Starbreeze's vision {Joystiq}

Sep 29th 2011 10:22AM @xHotPotatox Warcraft was an RTS... WoW is an MMO... ergo that game shouldn't be a Warcraft game...
Star Wars was a movie... Clone Wars is a cartoon... ergo that show shouldn't be a Star Wars show...
