What Happened This Week – Nuclear Journalism Sales Effect

Good to see you folks again!  Been an interesting week of big-name personalities competing for air time, and a few surprising announcements to boot.  Let’s break it down:

Final Mass Effect 2 DLC Announced

With Mass Effect 3 in the works, BioWare has just formally announced the release date of the last DLC for Mass Effect 2.  Dubbed Arrival, the content will bridge the gap between the two games by taking Shepard into Batarian space, where a missing agent reportedly has information about an impending Reaper invasion.  Arrival will “show players just how close the Reapers are to returning,” according to executive producer Casey Hudson.  Apart from adding new research options, the content will also feature Admiral Hackett in a prominent role, possibly once again asking Shepard to do everything.

Arrival will release on March 29 for 560 MS funbucks, or $6.99.
