I love the indoctrination theory because it made the ending so much better for me.

It went along with my denial phase lol.

I denied that the ending even happened, esp with the this is the story of the Shepard angle. I was like they're just mind fucking us.

I then became angry at Bioware, how could they screw up this royally? I mean they made one hell of a game, one hell of a series and then just face plant at the end makes no sense and let alone the responses from them about the whole situation.

I then bargained that I liked the game's multiplayer better than the single player and that I should have just stayed in the multiplayer lobby.

I was depressed with the series, not wanting to finish the game again because what's the point. I went back and finished up Mass Effect 1.

Then I accepted the game, with a few nicks and scratches it's still pretty great and decided to finish up Mass Effect 3 and the Insanity achievement.

 

All in all I actually really enjoyed my Insanity playthrough, god the practice I did with ME3's multiplayer made me almost unstoppable. God, it's such a great series and too bad that it was tarnished at the end. The analogy I always think of when it comes to Mass Effect 3 is when your parents told you to proof read your essays when you were a kid and you were like yeah yeah.

Yeah the multiplayer was badass. I played it so much that it made the single player campaign so much easier. After the multiplayer, I just steamrolled those banshees and brutes on the last level. I just couldn't believed that the first time through it took me multiple attempts.

Here is that YouTube video I was talking about with the interesting take on indoctrination theory. And, look, ID or no, I loved the ending. Even before the EC. You have to put yourself out there a bit, but it's a deep and meaningful ending to Shepard's story.

That's no small amount of viewing, as it weighs in at 1hr 24min 57sec, so that's something for multiple watchings.  There seems to be broken-out pieces of it off to the side on the YouTube page for the video.

so last night I was at BJ's and picked up a PH copy of Mass Effect 1 for $7.98...I now own 3 copies of the game (regular, LE, and now this backup edition).  I think I have a problem, haha.

I know, it's sad and equally awesome. I have the CE, the trilogy pack and the first game digitally. Someone on this thread, Hitman maybe?, has foreign copies and a pretty nice collection.

haha, I almost got the first game digitally during one of the last sales.  I wanna get the trilogy pack but waiting for that PS4 announcement :D

 

My current tally is:

 

ME1:  PH edition (x2), LE

ME2:  Regular edition, CE

ME3:  CE

 

Somehow I dont own a vanilla copy of ME3 yet...maybe that will be my next investment.

So, what does everyone think the chances are of the trilogy coming to X1 and PS4 being announced at E3? I'm 50/50.... Mainly because I don't want to get my hopes up.

EA loves money, so yes we're going to get one. I probably would pick up both copies for my Xbox One and PS4. I will probably do the same for ME4 too.

On the plus side you'll at least have a physical copy of Bring Down the Sky to install if/when Xbox Live for the Xbox 360 goes down. 

 

That's definitely how I'd justify the Platinum Hits purchase.

Hope that's not true. I'll play any ME but I'm just much less interested in reliving known events than in finding out where the universe goes next.

Just having Contact in the title doesn't necessarily mean it's about the First Contact Wars and it's a prequel. You can most definitely contact other species later after everything is rebuilt or everyone has the space race again.

Say it with me - other galaxies.

Jennifer Hale alluding to something ME related (?) ...

Maybe they're bringing the voice actors back in to do additional work for the HD re-release? Or maybe some kind of promo for the next ME... ?
