Mass Effect 3 makes baby jesus cry.

52 Replies 1,249 Views Created 08-03-2012

Finished the game after getting way early on me 360 ignore the reviews its terrible. EA have killed the game massive plot holes which don't have any relevance to what happened in the previous two games. Awful storytelling entirely predictable, dumbed down everything and possibly the worst ending to a game ever. Plays more like Gears of War than Mass Effect. Mass effect 1 was awesome number 2 was still good but 3 is awful :(

had no issues with MP, i got mullered quite a bit before i levelled up enough, whats annoying is bioware saying you dont need multiplayer to achieve best ending, you dont BUT you have to find every single damn war asset, if not you have to make it up with multiplayer.

so if you havnt achieved the magic EMS 4K number get online if you want the best ending for your current run.

^ Confirmed, I believe.

So they're not going to change the endings, just clear them up it seems.  I'm ok with that.

It's not fake, it's confirmed on the official forums, there is also multiplayer DLC coming which gives extra playable characters such as Geth, Justicars  and Batarians.

It's not the difficulty, i just don't play games multiple times in a row , it gets boring then. I'll do it again in a months time or so.

I love these videos,they really changed everything i was thinking about the end of ME3

 

If Bioware did mean these,then i have to hand it to them for sticking to it,however i still think Bioware could of done more,instead of creating their own chaos on the net

 

so,this first video will give you the jist of things,its 3 minutes long

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZ7bsIpEKIg

 

 

and this second video is 20 minutes long and goes into more detail,going right through the 3 games,it really is quite good the theory,which isn't new i might add as Yrag mentioned,but seeing it all come together is pretty cool

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ythY_GkEBck

 

 

especially check around 7:30-7:50ish...i definitely did not notice that,as i don't think i turned around after i got hit by the red beam and then stumbling towards the light,LOL

 

please take the time to watch these videos,they are really good

 

I love the scene from Arrival DLC for ME2,because i was thinking the very same thing at the time,but forgot all about it

 

even if this is just some fluke and this is not actually Bioware's intention,this is the meaning of the end for my game from now on anyway :)



I've said it before but it is. The Mass Effect 3: The Final Hours app states that they originally were going to go with Shepard being indoctrinated or fighting indoctrination but they abandoned it after not figuring out a way for it to work. It's simply fans over-thinking and over-analysing the game unfortunately, clinging onto something to justify the ending as unfortunate as I find that.


 while i don't doubt you...i would still like to know that part when he is talking to Anderson and TIM,and he starts getting headaches and black swirls of smoke come into the screen,he is at least fighting indoctrination

 

 

and like i said,it doesn't matter.that's my end now

 

I know that Bioware are redoing the ending as they announced today,but i would actually like them to explain the ending they have now,make us understand what it all means,maybe we can see things differently...but it seems Bioware haven't got a friggin' clue either,they just wnated an ending that people will talk about...wheyhey well done idiots,you got your ending

im the complete opposite this game has become one of the ebst games i've ever played on my ps3 i played a little of number 2 and hated it so much i couldnt even get to half way before getting rid of it lol

 

EDIT: is this an open ended game? like more than one ending to find? and does some of your decisions during discussions have an actual affect later on? and also if i did the bare minimum and just went straight for the end and not working to get extra fleets does it have any affect on the final battle?
