xbox live is now listing pinacle station as new DLC for the original mass effect? i saw this and immediately gooFAWed at the random piece of content that poofed out of thin air. did any one hear anything about this before now? or is microsoft studios the best company at keeping secrets?

Probably the worst launch of DLC ever. No press release, no pre-release hype, not even a hint.
 
I don't think they've yet officially came out and said it was released.

No one knew anything about it, and that wasn't really a good thing. Apparently it sucks balls.

Not sure if GB is gonna review it but IGN did and basically they hated it. Only reason I would think to buy this is to keep or get an S rank for Mass Effect achievements, get an easy 150 points or if it affects Mass Effect 2 in anyway or shape which I highly doubt.

Wow, that sounds awful. It's basically a mini game collection.

These reviews are so uninspiring that to play the game through again just to get to Specter status to be able to access the DLC would truely dishearten me.  I think I will just wait it out until the sequel comes out.

  It's nice to see that Bioware stood by their word and provided a steady stream of DLC for Mass Effect...ohh wait a minute....Never Mind. 
 
I really hope that it won't take them TWO FUCKING YEARS to come up with WORTHY DLC for Mass Effect 2.

It's not actually made by BioWare, either.  It's done by the guys who did the PC port.
 
I don't blame them, really.  I would rather them focus all their energies into ME 2.

It's because the DLC is horrible. You remember how you hated combat in Mass Effect? Well you're going to hate it even more you have to pay for a combat arena.

It's a time trial kill fest. It apparently sucks.

I was absolutely stoked to see it on the XBL Spotlight page & downloaded it immediately but damn... Yeah, it kinda sucks. 
 
HEY! Do you like fighting dudes in Mass Effect!? WELL GUESS WHAT!?
Now you can do it with a deadline & limited  health/grenades!!!!
 
The asteroid thing was pretty lame but at least it had a story. This is just mindless repetition for a shitty reward.

Bioware's never been great with this stuff. Used to the PC crowd doing it for them. All we ever got for KOTOR was that trading station over Yavin :( Although that trading station isn't bad, aas you can get some good items and two unique Lightsaber crystals...
 
Man, I need to play KOTOR again.
