One something is created, that does not inherently mean its immutable. Hell, even things IN PRINT have been changed. The issue is not the change itself, but that the decision to change content is made by that content's creator, not irate fans.
So they announced a free DLC to expand on the ending. It won't change it but the attempt is to make your decisions have an actual impact by showing the aftermath.
Well, that is something at least. I still think the whole way they ended the game was a big cop out.
SpoilerThe whole god-child thing is a story telling no no
But since they aren't changing the ending, I wonder if they will close all the plot holes. All the faults that people pointed out. All the things that didn't make sense. It will be hard to correct all that.
I keep hearing this artistic vision bs. But I honestly can't imagine the devs being proud of the ending they've put in the game. When did artistic become another word for bad? Did they even test it in focus or research groups?Originally Posted by Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut FAQ
I've heard a few people say the ending wasn't bad. But like all things, the vocal ones are the ones that disprove. I don't understand why this seems to be the unifying issue that people have with the game. It's not the 50 pieces of exclusive dlc tied to action figures or even that there are non-game things that affect the game (ios games).
A video game is about the journey. Honestly feels like the same situation as a bunch of Twilight fans crying because they were team Jacob.
I do relish Bioware's response. Here is some free dlc that explains the ending because you didn't get it. Paraphrasing of course.
i personally have a problem with it because it makes anything else beyond it useless, you also have no complete control over what you're doing and what you want.
the worst part IMO is the part where you're pretty much a slo-mo burned corpse, everything beyond that "thing" just became a talk but no action place holder.
i personally understand the ending completely but it doesn't make it any better, just throwing an explanation in the form of a DLC only makes things worse.
