BioWare Waiting on More Gamers to Finish ME3 Before Discussing Ending “Controversy”
As you may know by now, many fans have expressed unhappiness with the ending of Mass Effect 3. In fact, over two-thousand fans are willing to pay a combined total of $53,448.31 (as of this writing) to prove just how much they dislike the ending, if the “Retake Mass Effect – Child’s Play” fundraiser/petition is anything to go by.
But just so you know, BioWare is listening. I know this because they said so on their forums. The developer’s community coordinator, Chris Priestly, posted the following message to fans, asking them to avoid spoilers for those who’ve yet to finish the game, as well as to acknowledge the criticism that’s been heading their way about the story’s conclusion:
“We appreciate everyone’s feedback about Mass Effect 3 and want you to know that we are listening. Active discussions about the ending are more than welcome here, and the team will be reviewing it for feedback and responding when we can. Please note, we want to give people time to experience the game so while we can’t get into specifics right now, we will be able to address some of your questions once more people have had time to complete the game. In the meantime, we’d like to ask that you keep the non-spoiler areas of our forums and our social media channels spoiler free.
“We understand there is a lot of debate on the Mass Effect 3 ending and we will be more than happy to engage in healthy discussions once more people get to experience the game. We are listening to all of your feedback.”
Personally, I’m still mad about Super Mario’s ending. I kept waiting to find out why all them Toads were dressing up as women, and they totally left me hanging! What the hell? Why is the Mushroom Kingdom filled with cross-dressing, fungus-headed dwarves? Talk about a plot hole. That’s why I’ve set fire to every single Mario game I’ve come across since 1985.
I’m wanted in 15 states for arson.
