Will there be a reference or memorial of some sort for Robin Sachs in the new DLC?

 I saw a thread touch on this, but it didn't really ask if this would acually happen. I'm just curious if there is a reference to Zaeed's VA Robin Sachs in the Citadel DLC or if it was too far in development to really be able to do anything.

maybe it was to far but they we have operation tribute so i guess it the best they can do but am happy with the operation in memory of him plus you get a tribute banner i bet

I believe there is an acknowledgement in the credits. Unfortunately, the story content was locked when we learned of his passing and changes couldn't be made.

This weekend's multiplay challenge is meant to be a tribute to him. :)




:devil:

Having him appear on the memorial wall would be a start

I failed to connect those dots. Guess I'm spending this weekend with Jessie, then. Nice tribute.

I wasn't a fan of the character much but he was a badass though like Aria.

So... if the DLC will let us do more revisiting with past squad members, does that mean Zaeed's lines were done before he passed away?

Mike Gamble tweeted that this DLC has Robin Sachs as Zaeed featured.

As opposed to what, doing them AFTER he passed away?

I don't generally play MP, but I think I'll give this challenge a go. :)

As opposed to not having them at all due to his passing.

Most likely.

Hear-hear!  

It was bad enough that Zaeed's name doesn't appear on the wall if he dies.  Having Robin Sachs' name on the wall would be a small but fitting tribute to him.

Come on BioWare - you owe this to Robin, to us and yourselves.

Dunno if this matters, but Robin WAS able to voice Zaeed in the upcoming DLC, so there is that much at least.

Curious if the memorial wall glitch that prevents zaeed's name from showing up is fixed in this dlc.

I think it's great we get Robin Sachs' final voice over performance in the new DLC.

I'm sorry, but that would be really tacky & would trivialise his passing but putting his name alongside a group of fictional characters who died in the narrative.

Putting a dedication at the end of credits is more likely, and a lot more respectful.

Well that's a fair point - at least fix it so that Zaeed's name appears on the wall, should he die in game.

Just to clarify, I was referring to the Zaeed name glitch.
