More Mass Effect 3 DLC Details?

Pastebin has what are said to be details on plans for new Mass Effect 3 DLC found in the new extended cut of BioWare's action/RPG sequel. The spoilery post includes details on a plot involving a Reaper named Leviathan, and supporting the idea that more content for the game us coming is a new tweet by Mike Gamble noticed by Eurogamer which reads: "As I've said before, we do this for you! EC was our gift to the fans. Hope you enjoyed. Also...keep your ears open over the next little while." Thanks BioWare Social Network.

That explains a lot. ME3 feels like they completely pulled the explanation for the reaper's out of their ass with no thought. Even in the extended cut the reapers don't make any sense. The new writers probably did pull the explanation out of their ass. Breaking up the ME2 team was clearly an awful idea.

Yeah, but to be honest, the original idea of "Dark Energy" wasn't much better. Not 100% sure how it was supposed to go, but basically the organics using Mass Effect fields is creating more Dark Energy, which is slowly but surely devouring the Galaxy, and the Reapers are here to stop that from happening. The reason it doesn't make sense is that

A) Why wait until organics have already been using it for 10.000 years (in the case of the Turians and Asari) and
B) Why not just put a fucking sign up that says "DONT USE MASS EFFECT FIELDS AS IT WILL BLOW UP THE UNIVERSE!"

There really is no way to make what the Reapers are doing seem logical, at least not if you're trying to make it appear that they believe they're doing what's best for "us." There can never be anything so bad that genocide is an acceptable answer.

I wished they had just kept it a mystery. Like what Sovereign said, that their motivations are so far beyond us we'll never understand it. Failing that, then make their motivation simply self-serving. The Reapers are an extra-galactic race that can only procreate and grow through absorbing entire cultures. It makes them very similar to the Borg, but at least the Borg made sense.

The Reaper explanation now is crazy, but at least you can see that the Catalyst BELIEVES that it's true, and therefore he continues doing it. It's hard to reason with someone who's insane.
