Mass Effect 2 gets downloadable "Equalizer Pack" today

Bioware’s Mass Effect website has confirmed today’s release of the Equalizer Pack, a downloadable add-on for Mass Effect 2, the epic space RPG starring the lovable/morally ambiguous Commander Shepard. The Equalizer Pack features a badass blood-red exoskeleton that augments speed called Inferno Armor, and two new helmets, called the Capacitor Helmet and Archon Visor, that increase shield regeneration and biotic recharge.

On one hand, we’re still sore that the visors and helmets stay on all the time, making certain cutscenes look more or less ridiculous. On the other hand, we really like the new gear. Considering the Equalizer Pack costs a paltry 160 Microsoft Points for Xbox 360 owners and 160 Bioware Points for PC users, feel free to indulge in this guilty pleasure purchase.

    Unless Bioware comes out with a helmet-removal-during-dialogue patch (and they've said they won't) I'll never spend 1 point on this.

    Never understand why they didn't make the helmets separate from these DLC armors. They claimed they wanted to maintain the look of the complete set of armor. What difference does it make how I want to look to them? If they want to 'maintain' while THEY play it, more power to them. Ok I'm done ranting now...LOL

    I actually already have the Inferno Armor, it was one of the free dlc items offered for pre-ordering ME2. I've warn it once or twice, but my current customized set is better. The two other helmets are new, but they don't really add too much of an improvement, so I think I'll be passing on this. I have too many helmets anyway, thanks to all the Dr. Pepper dlc...

    Yay, playing dressup TOTALLY makes me want to play through this another time. What happened to the Cerberus network? This stuff seriously can't take that much time to develop.

    thinking about the "helmet head" dialouge problems, bet Bioware would make a mint off of that fix, if it was 10 ms points, but come on it would be 160 minimum *sigh* and i would buy it

    Was this the free stuff that was on the DR pepper codes? Im definately up for more Mass effecty goodness but what about the other character clothing packs? kinda feel that things like this should come packed into a new mission, like what they did with the suit/dress for the Kasumi mission

    As useful as this equipment may be. I force myself not to use it in-game because I cannot stand the 'helmet head' dialogue scenes.
