...anyone else think they might be gushing a little too hard? Let me start by saying that I thought it was a good piece of DLC that offered a lot of funny moments. But a lot of it was so tonally jarring that it was just plain weird at times.
I know Citadel is supposed to be an offshoot side story (or Christmas special as the crew likes to call it), but the way it's integrated into the story makes me have a hard time separating the ridiculous nature of Citadel and the serious mood of the overarching story. Although the premise of Citadel is pretty damn dumb, it seems just plausible enough to be a natural side mission that makes all the self-awareness and humor seem way out of place.
I know if I simply look at it as a complete side story that was nothing or little to do with the main narrative, it would be fine, but it's hard for me to do that. For something like Undead Nightmare, it was much easier to take it for what it is because it's freaking zombies with cowboys. It's a fun, goofy little thing. And I know that's what Citadel is supposed to be, but it's tough for me to make that dichotomy because it's ingrained into the main fiction just enough to be realistic.
Maybe if all of your crew mates turned into zombies I would've loved it? Hell, I don't even know anymore.
