Mass Effect 2: "Countdown Timer"
Posted: Wednesday March 24th, 2010 by

Yesterday I noticed a countdown timer had been added to Bioware's front page. There's a Mass Effect 2 graphic above it, Dragon Age and Mass Effect 2 news below it. So I have no idea what it's counting down to. So I did what any mildly popular webcomic would do. I asked someone I know at Bioware. Like me he had no idea. So the conversation you see in the comic is pretty much the conversation he and I had via chat. Well, except that he didn't call me a dumbass. I'm sure he was thinking it. But he was kind enough not to type it.

For the sake of clarity, the Hammerhead he is referring to are a type of hovering tank in Mass Effect 2. They were to be released as downloadable content. This is though, they were released yesterday. So obviously the countdown timer is not counting down to them.

After the conversation, I hit up the Mass Effect 2 portion of the Bioware site and there was the countdown timer again. At this point I figured it had to be something associated with Mass Effect. Then I hit the Dragon Age site and fwoomp... there is was again. So that assumption was shot down.

Anyone got any guesses?
