I don't see how "Mass Effect anime" translates to "Mass Effect sucks". :eh:


ME3 sucked, I made that clear early

Now it's just being whored out

It was a bad enough that there was a degeneration between 1 and 2, and the inventory system was dumped down so much.

Now it's just being whored around, it's obvious BioWare doesn't respect the property anymore. Neither do I.

I got this game last week, done 10 hours so far. I'm surprised at all the hate, I personally really like this game. Great story, and the gameplay is fun. Last night I made a really wrong decision though. The part where the Legion clone/hologram asked me for permission to implement the code to give all Geth free will. What I didn't expect that after saying yes, they would destroy all of Tali's people, which then resulted in her killing herself. I was then like '....What?! I didn't want that to happen." So I because of that, I lost Tali. Very depressing moment.

But yeah, fantastic game so far. I'm looking forward to seeing this infamous ending everyone's talking about.

I did the same thing and was very upset but when the choice between Tali and Legion I had to choose Legion and then Legion died and I did the Darth Vader no.

^Isn't that just sad? Man, I really liked having Tali as a partner on the battlefield. I still can't believe I made that decision.

Not as much as Mordin. Damn I can still remember his final words. I am the very model of a.........
"...A great love is a lot like a good memory. When it's there, and you know it's there, but it's just out of your reach, it can be all that you think about. You can focus on it, and try to force it, but the more you do, the more you seem to push it away. But if you're patient, and you hold still, then maybe... Just maybe... It will come to you."

That doesn't "fix" the shitty ending. It just adds more cutscenes to explain it. PASS.

Yeah Mordin's last words are sad and i find it fitting that his last words are I am the very model of a scientist salarian.

Also i loved this line. "That was for Thane, you son of a bitch!"

Pretty much. A lot of it is bitching for the sake of bitching. However, the ending is quite disappointing. We don't learn what becomes of so many of the characters and a lot of what Shepard works for through the whole series never comes to fruition. So it does leave some plot holes and unanswered questions. It's sad more than anything, though. I wish it would have ended on a more positive note. What pisses me off is not necessarily bitching about the ending, but acting like the ending ruins the game as a whole. I think a lot of the hate for the game itself is completely unwarranted.

Well the ending is only 1 problem people have with ME3. My biggest problem the inventory system was gutted like a fish dinner, I wasn't expecting the great system from 1 to reappear, but goddamn it was down to near nothing.

Though bringing powers back was a nice touch.

Also the ending isn't sad, it's just plain bad writing. It's so circular and poorly developed it offends me as a means of story telling.

Well it's mostly because story is what ME was initially SOLD on, we were promised a great story. We got a generic cover and shoot game, with an attempt at story telling. I found most of 3 to be ham-fisted, I was on the floor laughing for a good half of it.

In fact the only mission in the game, I didn't feel dragged on from lame writing and dialouge was the one with Mordin and the Genophage.

Hey guys the Mass Effect 3 Extended cut will be released the 26th of this month. So heres the video of them talking about it and I don't know about you guys though but I'm excited about this. Though of course it would seem like I'm one of the few people who didn't entirely hate the endings.

Meh. I'm intrigued but not hopeful. This could easily be just as disappointing as the original endings.

I still say people got way too pissy over the ending.
Apparently SWTOR said that I can invite 25 people for a 7 day trial of the game. PM me if interested.

Oh, I do too. The reaction was uncalled for. The endings though were pretty bad. They weren't the bringers of world chaos and doom that the internet made them out to be though.

I agree as well and I'm really hoping this extended cut will stop at least some people from bitching about it the whole time. Also just wondering do you guys believe in the Indoctrination theory because I don't.

I've heard of it, but other than that I know nothing about it. What I hear msot complaints about the ending are that it was mostly just different colors. If that is the case this dlc may solve some of the problems people had with the ending.

I don't think people are ever going to stop complaining about the Mass Effect 3 ending the only thing I could see is Bioware may have to make a Mass Effect 4 that puts the previous 3 to shame and really makes all your choices seem like they matter.

So..... what did you guys think of the Extended cut, I thought it was awesome and basically explained just about everything with the ending.

My ratings for each ending

Destroy: 10
Control: 8
Synthesis: 4 (Just my personal opinion but showing what it looked liked was interesting but not my choice of ending)
New Ending: 5 (Same with Synthesis)

But all in all I give the EC about a 10/10.
