BioWare Target of Delicious Operation Cupcake
Not content with the forthcoming whatever it is from BioWare to address their seething fans’ hatred of Mass Effect 3’s reportedly lousy ending, some intrepid fans have funded the creation and delivery of METAPHORICAL CUPCAKES to the developers’ offices.
The details are laid out over on Blistered Thumbs. A fan ordered 400 vanilla flavored cupcakes, of which there were three groups of 134Green, Blue, and Red frosted treats, with each color marked A, B, or C. The differently colored but same-flavored cupcakes were meant to signify the choices players thought they were making in the game—which ultimately led to the same ending.
Anyway, the movement really took off when it was discovered that the Edmonton-based Fuss Cupcakes couldn’t take money via PayPal, meaning one fan had to pay for the $1,000 order out of pocket. A groundswell of support to pay him back erupted on BioWare’s forums, with BioWare itself cheering the gesture on in order to support the local business.
So there you go. Gotta be way more delicious than Operation Crowbar, for sure.
