Head on over to the BioWare Social Network to download the soundtrack to Mass Effect 3′s latest and last DLC, Citadel; it’s free. I haven’t had a listen yet, but hopefully the pack includes the various tunes available in the claw machine in the arcade. Citadel has Commander Shepard acquiring an apartment on the eponymous space station, foiling a plot against her, and catching up with friends old and new. I rate it five fangirl sighs out of five.

All three Mass Effect games are on sale on Origin, according to Joystiq. You can apparently grab all of them at about half-price, for a total of $25, and the sale is valid through March 12. I can’t find any mention of the offer on my end, which suggests it may be restricted to the US. The sale marks the third game’s one-year anniversary, as well as an end to DLC support.

Star Wars: The Old Republic players will soon be required to log in using their screen name, not email address. The change is said to be a pre-emptive strike against account hacks, which may increase with an upcoming expansion, and will be made mandatory next month, although players are encouraged to switch as soon as possible. According to Shack News, BioWare announced the change in a news post, but it’s inaccessible at this time.

Mass Effect 3′s latest N7 Bounty Weekend, Operation Impact, started yesterday. It looks as though recent losses has resulted in the implementation of troop reinforcements from “unorthodox sources.” These teammates are versed in anti-Reaper tactics, apparently. The individual goal for the weekend is to extract on any difficulty while playing as a Reckoning kit. The reward is a Commendation Pack. Hit up the link for more information.
