No they didn't. EA did. I went to the Mass Effect 2 screening with no notion of what was to be shown and they showed the ending of the game.

I was super fucking pissed when they showed it. BUT, the game looks friggen incredible - best looking game ever. Oh and Dantes Inferno was surprisingly insanely good looking as well, I think it looks tons better then God of War 3.

Are you guys sure that's the end? I think it's the begining.

Thus, the trailers of Shepard "KIA", and everyone acting like..."Shepard, I thought you were dead?!"

I don't think they're going to spoil the game like that, but they did say he could die, so it's possible at the very end or maybe anytime during the game you can die and be dead.

I got home from work today and wanted to play the first one. So I did but after 4 hours of my time I ended up having to delete the save file. The world that the miners are on I take it is a boss world. I remember when I first got Mass Effect I got on that world and at the end was getting killed in one hit. It would be nice if you could go back to the ship but no I press X and it does nothing. So now I'm not even sure I want to play 2. I want to beat the first one but don't know if I want to play all that again for the third time

Yes, I sat through the Mass Effect demo twice (around 20 minutes long) and I can confirm it is one of the endings.
Spoiler


Actually, since I've been without a computer for a few days I haven't been able to read peoples conspiracy theories. And Kotaku's could be true (that it is the beginning), if that is the case then the guy that gives the demonstration is just pulling everyone's leg. That would make a lot of sense though, because Joker says, "an unknown alien life form is attacking" and it seems like that is a good starting point and a motive for Shepard to find out what the life form was. That would be very relieving if that is true.

If it is indeed one of the confirmed endings I'm a little irked they decided to reveal it so quickly. ;\

I believe it's the beginning or at least in some part of the game where the normandy gets shot down and they think the crew or at least shepard is dead.
Again, that's why that asari chick in the trailer said "Shepard? I thought you were dead?"

Who knows?

I believe it was from Gameradar's mini podcast but that's just odd if that it ends the game (around 5:00 if you just want the ME2 thing).
http://www.gamesrada...603203137554080
The third game may be different if this actually happens but that hasn't been officially confirmed though and I think its more speculation. Oh and that spoiler tag didn't work since I read your post in my gmail lol. >< If anything this throws the intensity meter in overdrive but I don't know if I love that or not. We'll see.

Gamesradar talks about it on their E309: Top 10 Things you need to know about today Wednesday edition and I don't know if it a spoiler but I'll put it in as one anyways.

But most important is the plot, which is even darker and more sinister; that means a lot considering the first game was about the extermination of all carbon-based life in the universe.

Well it would make sense if making the "wrong decisions" during any special scenario ended your game right then and there since there's really no one to take your place. I could easily deal with it. I mean... who doesn't save frequently in a RPG?

On the official forums they've said they will address that later. Basically, they're not ready to commit yet. I can't imagine them not doing it, though.

probably just a cocktease. By the way the guy was saying it how...

Spoiler


I mean they spewed out lots of lofty expectations about how your first game would carry over in every way with every action... Just wonder if they'll actually do it since they left out some of their promises like interrupting dialogue from the first game. Wonder if I even have my mass effect 1 save still...

I was super ticked that EA didn't show anything new about it at their press conference Monday. The same trailer they showed had been out for about two weeks. They even showed it on Gametrailers TV E3 show the Thursday before E3 started!

I kind of wish they would do what Alpha Protocol has with its dialogue and put a timer on it so decisions are more instinct and true to the player rather than the player picking a certain one because of what it will result in.

I was totally pissed coming out of it and seeing this, but those points have helped me to relax about the whole thing - and the game will kick ass no matter what.

@RANDOM POINT - I lied about not wearing gaming shirts, I'm sporting the Mass Effect 2 shirt I got from E3. It is totally awesome.

Well for returning characters, I remember when talking about the game one of the people said that "If you

" which leads me to believe he's the one who's coming back. Not to mention he fits the bill for crazy mercenaries willing to go on a suicide mission.

I had been avoiding the spoiler tags too, but a combination of reading multiple web site coverages and DarknessBears post above killed that. You really should have spoiler tags man.

But!!! That may not be the "ending". Quote below and source.

Yes exactly. Sorry I felt the need to spoil it for everyone. But, I'm pretty sure knowing this wont ruin the story (if you read my post). And like Lord_Kefka stated in his quote, the "ending" while beautiful and amazing, did not really end like you know a good story should end. It could very well be the beginning.

And (I'll say it again) if it is an ending. Who cares? It gives you a sense of impending doom and you now know you have the ability to completely die, so your actions will be much more thought out.

Here's to hoping for a LE with better box art than what's been shown! I'd take a dark, simple background with just the ME2 logo on it over that art.

The biggest problem with that art is that guy doesn't look like any of my Shepards. Bioware should set up some feature where it reads your save data and generates a custom cover PDF you can print out. It might not look as good as their prerendered art, but I bet they could come pretty close. Just imagine how awesome it would be to have your own Shepard right there on the box.

Also the woman in the back makes me optimistic that they'll have hair options that look less like plastic molds.
