FIRST OFF - DO NOT BUY IT. COME ON, PEOPLE. So, now that the Leviathan DLC is out. Watched the whole thing on YouTube. I have to say, it's less suck than expected. Come back here once you watched it (DO NOT DOWNLOAD, IT'S ONLY AN HOUR AND A HALF LONG AND NOT WORTH THE MONEY). *Here be spoilers* Soooo... the leak was almost spot on, except the twist, amirite? The Leviathan is NOT a Reaper. Reapers are made to resemble the first Reaper, Harbinger, which was, you guessed it, harvested from the Leviathan's race, after they created the AI, which was supposed to keep all lesser races in order, so that they may continue to serve the master race of Leviathans. This is now slightly mentioned in the ending. And what's the opinion? Meh. The opinion is meh. The opinion is that the guy who said this is a game late is not only correct, it's actually an understatement - it's two games late. This plot point, the Reaper Origin,despite actually being well done and slightly awesome, is just WAY too late to this party... it should've been in ME2, and not released AFTER ME3. What really sucks, except the ending, is how the ending was changed; and the answer is - not enough. Not only are the Leviathans supposedly STRONG ENOUGH TO WHIP THE REAPERS, and they don't, but the conversation often doesn't make sense - Shep knows about the Leviathan, but still asks who made you, then mentions Leviathan, then back to asking about the Starchild's origins. But here's the REAL kicker - Shep knows Starchild betrayed his creators, and how he betrayed his purpose. The Leviathan clearly says - it doesn't serve its purpose of preserving life BECAUSE it built the Mass Relays to EXPEDITE cycles. THIS is what Shep should be calling him out ON! He betrayed his original programming, but then claims all he's doing is follow his original programming, so which is it? And in this light consider Shepard's actions in general - if before our uproar was WHY would MY Shepard listen to some axiom produced by some unknown mystic being, and post EC why would MY Shepard listen to some axiom produced by an AI despite fighting homicidal AIs for three games now and now... MY Shepard listened to some axiom produced by an AI that has not only broken off from its purpose and built relays for harvest and generally doesn't know what it's doing anymore, AND BETRAYED ITS CREATORS, and he's TRUSTING IT?? Good. God. Generally though, the whole Leviathan business is not a terrible twist on its own, and overall despite being short, the DLC is pretty cool. It's the game that it plugs into, and how it alters the ending, that is infuriating.
