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.

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.

I'd have preferred keeping the Reapers a mystery as well. I don't *need* to know why they're doing what they're doing. It's kind of Lovecraftian, but that's fine.

I get what this ending sort of does. It's a fucked up Nietzsche/ubermensch concept. As it stands now, the reapers are beyond good & evil. They exist on their own morality to "take care of" organic life. It's trite, and not very well handled, and is hackney writing, but I guess I get the concept. It fails though because it's such a tangential skein to end a very long story. It might have worked a lot better if most of the game's plot hammered on the idea that Shepard was exercising a morality that was "beyond" what the rest of the Galaxy was using. I mean, you sort of touch on that idea every now and again, but by the time you meet the Star Child, that should all gel.

I always thought it would be funny to have the mega weapon actually function as a massive, epic version of a mass effect relay, and you get the entire goddamn galaxy of intelligent beings together in Sol system, and everyone is there fighting the Reapers, and Shepard blows the weapon, and it evacs all non-reapers to another galaxy. BAM!. Non Servium. We choose to get off this goddamn merry-go-round. Keep the damn galaxy. There's a hundred billion others to inhabit.

Kind of grim for all the factions you don't rally together and for the people you leave behind, because the cycle will continue, but it'd be kind of an amusing ending.
