Might want to hold off until/if/when we get the new DLC + patch.

Any word on what the next patch is supposed to do? Will it change gameplay aspects or just address bugs?

The DLC is a gladiator style arena, and the patch is to solve crashing issues and texture bugs. It was announced quite a while ago though,and no news since then, so... who knows.

Yep. they announced it back in January, iirc. Awesome thing is that they're possibly implementing some of the Mass Effect 2 coding into it for the textures from what I remember. They already said they've completely fixed the issue and overhauled it in ME2, and they were going over it in ME. I just hope it's not some insane 1GB patch or something like The Witcher.

Some people on the Bioware forums are saying to just play the game and not to beat Illos because the DLC will take place after that part or something. But everything is pretty much speculation right now, and everyone is getting ready (if they haven't already) to toss the game out the window. I haven't gone past the first meeting with the Council in my current game I'm planning to play through when the DLC comes out just for this reason. But I have beat the game about 7 times already. I was still finding stuff out in the game like the pendant you get from the Asari Consort and what to do with it until my third playthrough, lol.

I've been picking at it a lot right now. Been trying to tweak the game so I can get the lovely 5.1 surround sound working wihout ALchemy. So far so good. I just wish Fraps would freakin record it without me having to switch the recording device from "What U Hear" back to Microphone every single time I want to use Skype/Mumble/Vent. And another thing is that even though The Witcher uses ALchemy as well, it's the same thing. Fraps just doesn't want to record the audio. Freakin' POS.

Ilos or whatever is where the end of the game starts... before that is a "free roaming" period, which is where you can play the first DLC. They are assuming the second will only be playable during that same period.

I always was annoyed that Mass Effect has a point of no return and doesn't tell you about it.

I am probably going to play through it with my main guy (vanguard) as I will be running through it at least 3 times to get max level and all of the achievements and using that save for ME2. If I complete it once before the DLC then no big deal I can just do it on my next playthrough.

I've played through three times and I still haven't found out what to do with that pendant! I didn't even realize there was a purpose for it til I read your post; the things the Consort says when she gives it to you made me think it would only come in handy during one of the sequels . I'll have to explore more carefully in my current play-through...

I found it on my first play through, but most play throughs after I've stuffed it up. It's a tricky quest, you have to do things right to even get the damn thing...
