Take A T'Loak At Mass Effect 3 Omega

They say Aria's biotics are some of the most powerful out there. Well, when she's not choking them, anyway.

I’m not the sort of person who usually watches the deleted/extended scenes of movie special editions. I mean, I’m sure they’re fascinating – and I’ll definitely go for a swim in the deep end if I’m really, really into something – but odds are, I’ve already gotten the point. I’ve seen the credits roll on the vanilla version. I’ve taken the journey, and – unless it’s been a while – I’m not super interested in trying the scenic route. That’s pretty much my dilemma with Mass Effect 3‘s DLC as well. Omega, for instance, looks like a bombastic jaunt off the beaten space-path, but I already know where it ultimately leads. Still though, a new trailer makes a compelling argument for me to play it sooner rather than later – if only because it looks like a fairly robust self-contained tale. Also, Aria’s finally doing things. Explode-y things. I bet her faithful couch is terribly lonely.

So right then, what do you think of Karate Action Aria? I’m not sure if she’s cut out for the whole inspirational rally-the-troops speech-giving shtick, but hopefully there’s more to Omega than wanton man/spiky man/large rhino frog man/blue not-man/robo-man shooting.

If nothing else, Aria as a party member, an honest-to-goodness female Turian, and a four-or-so-hour runtime are all locks for this one. Apparently, however, there are no new romance options, which is a shame since – as we all know – the only real reason anyone plays Mass Effect is for sizzling sensuality.

At any rate, Omega should be available right now-ish. Today’s its release day, so expect it very, very soon for the fairly hefty price of £10/$15. So then, are you going to lend Aria a helping hand? And, sort of on that subject, did you imagine such a generally hands-off character’s moment in the spotlight being so, um, loud?
