As we reported yesterday, a few of those wanting to get in on some Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 PC action were surprised to find that their second disc was reading as a copy of Mass Effect 2. Players could still enter their serial key into Steam in order to download it, but the disc itself is pretty much useless. Not only does it mean the game can't be installed, but there's no serial key included for Mass Effect 2. Not to let this wonderful PR opportunity go to waste, BioWare has since offered a free PC copy of Mass Effect Trilogy to those affected.
Mass Effect Trilogy
Prepare for the Internet backlash, folks: BioWare's announced that Mass Effect Trilogy, a compilation of the three Mass Effect games, will be hitting store shelves on November 6th. At least, it will for PC and Xbox 360. The PlayStation 3 version doesn't have a date yet, presumably because the original game was an Xbox 360 exclusive. The ending of the third game was rather divisive, so a second release is liable to only stir up hurt feelings and trolls.
