Not just me, I know tons of people who didn't mind it. People just have to find something to bitch and whine about, there can never be just one thing that's good. Bioware shouldn't have to change shit, I hope they charge $10 for it so then people can bitch about that. I mean, hey! They're the ones who fucking wanted it!

Read the blog from where IGN got the news, they are not changing it, they are just adding to it.

Said blog was also already posted by me in the other ME3 thread :V Just saying~

The Mass Effect 3 ending was nothing more but an illusion induced by Harbinger to trick Shepard to give in to indoctrination and become one of their tools in the war.

Here is a proper version of my first video regarding the INDOCTRINATION THEORY. It shows you many interesting hints which all support this theory of Shepard being indoctrinated (at least Harbinger tries to) at the end of the game.

Add on shit, change shit, they still shouldn't have to. It's their story dammit, they can end it how they want!

Oh well, don't care. I beat ME3 3 times now so I'm sure I won't be playing it again until a bunch of DLC is released.

It seems like people won't be content with any ending of Mass Effect 3 unless the Crucible shoots a magical rainbow laser that sprouts flowers and sunshine everywhere. The fans are retarded. Yeah, it's a dark ending, but the whole series has been about grim outlooks but had its humorous moments and stuff to keep it from being Warhammer 40k GRIM DARK DARK GRIM GRIM GRIM DARK.

For the record I thought the ending was fantastic.

That doesn't seem to be what they want apparently though :V Been on BSN for lulz OUT OF BOREDOM, and they have stated lots of times to other peeps that said this that they want a ending that fills in plot holes and makes sense, and don't care whether Shepard and crew live or die V:
Apparently its something a lot of people assume :V

I myself don't really care because LOLPIRACY.

EDIT:
Just wanted to say, regardless of how the ending is, goddamn I love the music, its beautiful ;~;

It's always the same with negative feedback anyway, people who don't like it just complain, whine, and bitch, while people who do like the ending wouldn't publicly go on forums and say "OMG ENDING SO GOOD" en masse.

Good show of support from Bioware, however this is going a tad bit too far. At least from what I can tell they won't change the ending, just add on to it. Gamers these days.

I'm extremely unhappy with the ending. Not because it doesn't end the story, but because of all the inconsistencies, plot holes, and questions it leaves behind. Bioware owes it to the fans to give us a proper ending that will provide closure and a sure ending to this wonderful franchise. I just can't believe that Bioware would give us a perfect game until the last 10 minutes of the game, in fact I won't. The ending is just so utterly disappointing and lackluster that I can't believe anyone would accept it as anything other than a trick.

Totally my opinion though. You're free to disagree with me.

This is stupid, the ending was just fine.
Fucking whiny bitches.
Nice. Glad to hear you liked the ending.
But some people paid a little more attention to the story and it's themes.

"Tons of people"? M'kay. I can think of a few hundred. But not "tons". Sure it's their story. It's also their promises which were tossed out the window. Promises on which a large number of purchases and pre-orders were made. Then you have the issue of the ending statement that "synthetics and organics cannot coexist". I don't know about you, but I had just gotten through proving this to be incorrect between the quarians and the geth.
Then you mention that you hope Bioware/EA charges for this DLC. Well that's not going to bother most people. We're asking them to go back to the drawing board, to work more hours, and polls have shown that many people are just fine with paying for this extra content.
But to say that they shouldn't have to change anything is to give all media producers the right to phone-in vital portions of their stories without consequence. "Oh that's alright, everything else was great, so we'll just overlook the ending that makes no sense.

Again, lets go to the polls. Oh darn, it looks like most people aren't asking for rainbows and kittens. They simply want an ending that actually reflects the choices they made in their 100+ hours of gameplay. Perhaps one that doesn't contradict every underlying theme of the entire series.

Most people are fine with most or possibly even all of the endings having a grim tone to them. But when we're told that the endings won't just be "A, B, or C" (the words of Casey Hudson) and all we get is endings Red, Blue, or Green why shouldn't people be irate?

Indoctrination Theory is a rather well thought out explanation for the current endgame offerings, but if it was the actual intended concept for the ending, it would have been officially supported by now.

But I really don't see how people can be pleased with the ending taken at face value.

That's simply my opinion. You certainly don't need to agree with it. And when the additional DLC is released you're certainly free to ignore it.

But these are the issues that have rallied more than fifty thousand people to complain.
Not that Shepard dies.
Not that we don't respect artistic integrity.
And not that we're somehow "entitled".

You wouldn't ask Stephen King to change an ending to one of his books, so why would you ask EA to change their story?
Just thought I would point out this has happened before, in literature, Sherlock Holmes.
He originally died in the battle against Moriarty, however, fan reaction and love for the character pretty much forced Doyle(That IS the writer, right? Its been a long time since I read the books) to resurrect him and continue the series.

EDIT:
If you need a game example, there's Fallout 3 and Broken Steel, IIRC there are some more examples but I can't completely remember, I think there was something regarding inFAMOUS 2? I think that was character design related though so maybe that doesn't count.

No, I simply stopped buying King's books after he finished the Dark Tower series. That was another ending that left a bad taste in my mouth.

But Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had to go back and rewrite the ending to one of his Sherlock Holmes books when he killed off his protagonist.
He did this because of public outcry against the ending.

(note in advance: I've never played a mass effect game).

I don't see the big deal with the ending. And the fact that hundreds, if not thousands, aren't happy about it, doesn't make me think the game is bad. Rather on the contrary.

Here's the deal: I've played some bad games, mediocre games and good games. Likewise, I've seen bad movies, mediocre movies and good movies. The thing with the good (and most mediocre) ones was that I saw them through to the end*.
...which is more than I can say for the bad ones. There I quit halfway through, stopped watching or even quit the movie theater (it's my philosophy that wasting money isn't so bad as wasting money AND time). In the worst case, I pawned C&C tiberian sun less than a week after release (I bet that hurt westwood studios more than any mail I could've send them).

So what's the deal here, really? Games aren't about the ending but about the experience, right? I mean...if you have 30 or 40 hours of fun playtime, you sure get your money's worth, no matter how it ends. And if that end somehow manages to ruin all those hours before, answer me this: were you really having fun with the game?


Also...if I check the garbage bin of my gameshop tomorrow...I somehow doubt I'll see dozens of packages of mass effect 3 therein, some with "FUK YUO BIOWARE!!!1" written or carved into the box. It's much more likely this whole outcry thing hasn't hurt sales one bit. And I think the same will even go for future sequels.





*okay, not really: games like rollercoaster tycoon are pretty much endless. But you know what I mean
