BioWare Teases ME3 ‘Conspiracy Accountability League’
BioWare continues to support Mass Effect 3 – if you can call it that, given the ending. The Leviathan DLC launched today, for example, (our review is forthcoming). And along with it, they’ve posted a silly bit of marketing on the BioWare social forums to go along with it. In a post entitled “I Speak The Truth“, someone claiming to have hacked the Alliance News Network posted this truther-sounding screed:
Top of the line security, huh? Hmph. I don’t think so! I’ve successfully hacked into the Alliance News Network’s terminal, but this isn’t a safe connection and I can’t stay long. I don’t want to reveal my location on the Citadel and give C-Sec the advantage. I must be heard! Go read about everything that Hackett is trying to cover up! I am Bernard Plim and I speak the truth! Conspiracy Accountability League
That link goes to a Blogspot site discussing peripheral elements of the Leviathan DLC in tones usually seen on Truther websites, or in discussions of a certain President’s birth certificate, and on that level it’s an effective bit of marketing from the Mass Effect 3 team. For instance, this bit:
Welcome to my site!! Would it surprise you to know that the Citadel Council and the Alliance are KEEPING THINGS FROM US, THE CITIZENS?! We deserve to know what they know. It is our right to protect ourselves from threats AND/OR profit from this intel, as the case may be. As you know, I have been successful in uncovering and exposing some pretty scandalous things. For example, just last month I blew the lid off the Alliance funding of the Volus Mafia on Patavig. Also, I single-handedly uncovered the illegal purchase of biological weapons from Dakuna, and ONE DAY SOMEONE WILL BELIEVE ME!!!!
Lolz. Except for the fact that The Leviathan just isn’t that good, it’s kind of cool.
