New bombshell on Mass Effect 3 conclusion
The final parts of Mass Effect 3 were meant to leave fans feeling happy that they had spent the past 5 years with such a great character, and allowed him/her to go off to pastures new, instead what most gamers feel is something that was put together at the last minute. The ending of the game has caused a huge deal of upset, so much so that some gamers have now started to file complaints to the FTC about it, which to us seems a little too extreme – but is it?
We say this because we have since learned that some of the final parts of the game were a last-minute thing and we were meant to have a more pleasing ending, but decided that going with the ending they did would lead to “lots of speculation for everyone,” which was reported here. There was even a different ending planned but this was canned at the last minute because of a few technical issues.
Most endings require you to defeat a boss but the closest to this happens more than an hour before the end of Mass Effect 3, so when you actually get to the end it’s a little anticlimactic. So we now know that Bioware had different options such as a showdown with the Illusive Man, which would have been far better for the game and knowing that they did not go ahead will surely upset fans all the more?
There’s now the worry that the cut content will make its way to us by way of a DLC, something that we discussed not that long ago. Now this will not be an issue if it was offered to us free (as a goodwill gesture), but this is very unlikely to happen.
Okay, we know that the ending was bad but do you think this issue has been taken way out of proportion, remember it’s only 5 or 10 minutes of the game because the rest of it is pretty good? There’s also the fact that Bioware has said they are open to suggestions and will make a statement on users comments once they have had time to digest all the information they have gathered.
Where do you stand on the Mass Effect 3 ending debate?
