I started playing the game just as the fan reaction was getting really loud, and I was still expecting to like the ending. Figured there was something that most people just didn't get.

But as it turned out, yeah, it was worse than that time I got caught in a hail storm in my underwear.

Like I've said, I plan to do a couple more playthroughs of the game. But I also plan to stop the game right after Marauder Shields and let my head fill in the ending proper-like.

I've little faith in the "extended cut" DLC.

Did anyone else completely abandon the game after hearing how horrible the endings were?

I play on PC and the fact that the endings are apparently absolutely atrocious along with the fact that I Origin is a broken piece of shit (I can't download DLC or redeem codes through it). I've pretty much decided to wait and play it later when the extended cut and all the other DLC is released.

Definitely seems to be a game where I wish I would have held out for the GOTY edition, but who the hell could have seen this coming with this game? Oh well!


Definitely not. I enjoyed the 95% of pure awesomeness this game was. The MP provided time well spent too.

It's the journey not the destination. And it sure has been one HELL of a great journey. Nothing can take that away.

Agreed. That sequence was a very bad-ass ending to that whole mission, which was pretty bad-ass to begin with.

Some of it's been a little WTF-ish (DA2-style fetch quests of "I have this, you might find it useful"), though it's been pretty impressive with what I've gone through, ending notwithstanding.

G33 & Dopa - Sent FR to both of you. My Weekends are usually locked in due to work so I'll only be on between early mornings till 3 pm and after midnight (EST). Since these events always start on Fridays that's when I usually make a few runs so let me know when you two are available.


I'll be on around midnight tonight. If we can get a group together for Gold, that'd be great :)

DO NOT rob yourself of the experience of ME3 despite the endings no mater how you feel about them. As stated, the journey, be it the graphics, the narrative, the characters, the culminating journey of MANY touching and genuinely genius moments in this game, ESPECIALLY if you are a fan at all of the series, should NOT be missed.

on a collectors note, if anyone is wanting a Legion Action figure for business or play, go get them now or look overseas, US supplies have seemingly vanished overnight. I had to import mine from having it in my cart on amazon to it being gone there and out on the bioware store within hours. eBay is offering some for around $28 and going up.

Ryu, you bring up a good point, It seems the majority of people fine with the ending just came in with Mass Effect 3, are casual Mass Effect fans or doesn't have such a strong relation with the characters. It seems odd, and ultimately highlights the out of place nature the ending has, that you'll be more disappointed with the ending if you're more of a fan especially considering this is a Bioware game (and they're a developer that listens to the community).

Yeah we had some good Gold runs last night, nothing stuck though, farthest we got was wave 9 lol. SOOO MUCH SHENANIGANS (AI cheating like a boss)! :booty:

I consider myself a hardcore ME fan. My initial reaction to the ending was that I was cool with it. It was what it was. Now that I have had some time to mull it over more...I still am okay with it. Sure, I'll make jokes because there's holes and it went in directions I would not have expected, but ultimately there's nothing I'm going to get up in arms about.

Had some good fun in the (futile) quest for Gold last night. And Chubbyninja, Spybreaker, & Co.: You're welcome for all those revive bonuses you got from picking my sorry ass up off the ground. If I have time tonight or tomorrow, I am willing to give it another shot.
