Having recently purchased the Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition, I've been reacquainting myself with the Fallout franchise's history. For the unaware, Fallout began as a third-person turn-based isometric RPG game for PC, and its first sequel and spin-offs generally adhered to that specific style and genre. When Bethesda revived the franchise with the successful launch of Fallout 3, that game significantly diverged from the old games by taking on a first-person perspective and altering combat to focus on real-time shooting. Many of the diehard Fallout fans were tremendously upset by this change. To them, Fallout 3 wasn't truly a Fallout game.

As one could predict, the alleged details of the upcoming Omega DLC for Mass Effect 3 have been leaked. Keep in mind that these details are leaked material and may be incorrect since I can't find the original source for the leak, but they sound reasonable enough:
One glaring inconsistency is that the leak also mentions that Zaeed Massani is involved. Despite the events of Citadel: Volus Ambassador in ME3, Zaeed is apparently working for Cerberus in the DLC and Shepard may have to kill him. I can't figure out how this would work story-wise unless the Omega DLC completely supplants the Volus Ambassador mission, which would make the DLC difficult to reconcile with the story if players have already completed that mission.
Notably, Zaeed working …
