    Alotta people bitching at Bioware not so long ago, so say what u want about them and EA. But they are releasing free dlc for the second time now, and it’s not exactly small dlc either.

    @3: Whether or not they change the ending, they fucked up big time. And at least they are acknowledging it with free DLC which I personally think is a pretty good move of them. If they’d act like business as usual people would be even more pissed I think. At least this way they show that they value their customer.

    @1: What’s a “Carbine Shotgun” anyway?

    @2: Not that Vorchas can fix the abysmal ending…

    @5 I was thinking of it’s name “Reegar”. Kal’Reegar was a quarian marine charged with escorting and defending Tali’Zorah vas Neema on a mission in Mass Effect 2. Another mission which raised questions that were never answered.. I’m not sure what a carbine shotgun is either. :))

    @2 All Mass Effect 2 DLC will be free because they’re making lots of money out of microtransactions. Don’t ever think that EA actually cares about their customers. Most publishers are the same.

    @6: A Carbine Shotgun might be an automatic carbine shooting clusters of pellets. [/wildspeculation]

    ME3 spoiler follows! You have been warned.

    I did happen to play the game. ;) I was also pretty annoyed he just died off screen and had no appearance in ME3, especially considering the notable Quarian story arc. IIRC Reegar clan were career soldiers, so it’s reasonable they get a gun named after them.

    Llewelyn_MT how do you know he died?

    @5 A Carbine Shotgun is effectively a lever action or pump shotgun usually with 3-8 shells in the magazine and a pistol grip. I don’t see how it would be structurally different from some of the other shottys in the game already.

    @8 Kal’Reegar is listed in a A.N.N. story… he lived long enough after a C.F. on Palaven.
