Yesterday we reported on a manufacturing mistake putting in discs of Mass Effect where the second disc of Call of Duty: Black Ops II should have been for some PC players. Many have seen this as annoying. Bioware sees it, in their words, as "an omen."
Stating that, if the universe wants you to play Mass Effect, who is BioWare to deny them, fans who send a photo of themselves holding their defective second disc will receive a download code for a free PC copy of the Mass Effect Trilogy.
But if you want it you'd better hurry: BioWare is limiting it to the first fifty photos they get.
Our Take: OK, so maybe this is really about tweaking a rival publisher and studio over a mistake they couldn't fix. But we never turn down free games and for a lucky few, it'll be a nice silver lining to what's likely a frustrating issue.
