      Since you beat the game, have you gone on youtube and watched the indoctrination theory? It's a good watch even if you do like the ending, it gives a possible what if scenario. Again, the plotholes really killed it for me. So all of the mass relays are gone (which The Arrival DLC explains would wipe out everything in the system btw. The whole point of the DLC is to prevent a MAss Relay from exploding and killing the whole system), what about the massive force left on earth? What are they going to do? Eat each other?

        I kind of figured with the old man telling the little kid stories that was to show everything worked out for all the different aliens and stuff.
        I guess if you were wondering what happened to the homeworlds then you're kinda screwed because there's nothing to give you information on it.

        When you think about it, staying with the George Lucas example, he actually has a lot more balls than Bioware if they do end up changing the ending. Sure, lot's of people hate GL for changing the originals and making the prequels, but he at least has the balls to say, "No, fuck you. I made this, it's going to be the way I want it."

        That's the other side of the argument. Sure the goal never changes, but the way you react changes how the end goal develops. Like take the suicide mission. Shepard could choose to upgrade the ship and care about the crew. But if he was being a dick and didn't do shit with the ship, the mission would go much differently. People can get REAL pissed about this sort of stuff. Personally, I'm technically on that side, but I'm not about to file a fucking lawsuit against Bioware. Those people... need help. It's like Star Wars, being from a newer generation, I really actually like the prequels and all of that stuff, but I'm friends with a dude who can't stand them. He can get MEGA passionate about how George Lucas is scum and stuff.

        Yeah, it's honestly very irritating that everyone keeps going on about it, I realise that they feel the game is very personal to them but at the end of the day it's just a game.
        But if you look at it, Mass Effect has always been a linear story with all these minor choices about how you go about achieving the goal but the goal never changes.

        IT's not guaranteed, all that stuff they've been saying is PR double-speak for now. They're trying to calm the masses.

      • ChainsawArm

        No, I've actually lost even more respect for them because they have agreed to edit their game.
        I don't think a game has to be a fan service.

        Hey, it's nice to see someone who HASN'T raised a pitchfork and called Bioware the devil in this situation. I'll give you props for that, lol.

      • ChainsawArm

        7 years ago

        Yeah, I wondered that, but the point of the game was to save everyone, not figure out how they live after it.
        That was my rationalization.

        LEt's not even get started on that whole Normandy fiasco...

      • GardenSnake

        For arguments sake, let's say you're right. What about the quarians/geth, krogan, turians all left on Earth? What happens when they run out of supplies? Do they starve? They sure as hell aren't getting back home. In fact space travel is ruined in general in the ME universe. Garrus can't see his dad and sister anymore, Tali will never see her homeworld again. IT's things like that which make the ending unsatisfying. Again, if the ending had to be sad, then so be it. I can live with that, it just leaves way too many things unanswered and offers no closure IMO. If this was ME2 or 1 then I could maybe understand. But this is the end of the trilogy smiley2.gif

      • ChainsawArm

        I think it deactivated them in a way that wouldn't kill everything.

    • GardenSnake

      Really? Why? I'm not about to jump on you and start calling you an idiot or anything, to each his own, but what did you like about it? For me, Shepard dying isn't as much a problem as the offensive amount of plotholes and lack of player choice that made the ending stink for me.

      Hey man, stuck on Assault on the Control Room and I think THAT would be the perfect opportunity for us to play! Saw you online yesterday but didn't wanna bug you, you seemed to be enjoying SR3 (I think that's what you were playing...) anyways, I'll send you an invite the next time I'm online. Sound ok?

      Ya dude, we really should come to think of it. I'll try for this weekend but the week is definitely not a good time for me. Tests, tests, tests.

      I just thought I'd let you know how I measure up to a shark, since you want to be a crazy shark guy. Though if you get one this big, it's a pretty safe bet that the cats and I will probably not visit you often...

      Finally added you on XBL! Hope you didn't have to wait too long. So basically if you want to play Halo anytime, just send me a message. Other multiplayer games you might be out of luck.

    • GardenSnake

      Can't fault you there. Hey, at least you can rest assured knowing I won't go berserk on you like the people in the thread did. Sticking to your principles is definitely a good thing.

    • MissMegatron

      7 years ago

      You!
      Actually I didn't really have anything to say.
      Oh well!

    • GardenSnake

      I can see the validity in both of your arguments (the thread's and yours). It's true that the multiplayer is a pretty obvious grab at new players but again, that might not be such a terrible thing. From what they revealed, you can basically play the game like the MP doesn't even exist. You made a good point about voting with your dollars but you could also vote with your time spent online. There must be some way to calculate where players are spending most if not all of their time. Who knows? Maybe if you get the game and ignore online completely, others will do the same and Bio will see that it isn't such a great idea.

    • GardenSnake

      Because of the multiplayer in ME3? Ya, I have to say it's pretty disappointing that they gave in and added multiplayer. Not every game has to have multiplayer, EA just doesn't seem to understand that. I wouldn't lose all hope though man, it's co-op and separate from the main story. The Montreal team is handling it too so that hopefully won't rob the single player team of development time. As long as it's not competitive multiplayer, I'm not completely discouraged. It does suck a big one though :/

      It was your birthday? Happy belated birthday dude lol

      You!
      I actually just said hi to you on facebook so I guess there really is no need to say hi to you here too.
      But I'm a rebel, I'll do it anyways.
      Hi Garrett

      You were in my dream last night!
      I don't remember it all that well.
      But I remember I was at gamestop or something and the guy working there was a douche and not really helping me find a new xbox controller. Then you were there, and I think I was preordering mass effect 3? Then you were arguing with the worker guy or something and got us kicked out. Not entirely sure what was going on there. But I do need a new controller, and I want me3 (I've been playing me2), and you work at gamestop. So I guess it kinda all fits?

      You! I actually don't have my xbox right now, I let my dad borrow it, so he called me today and was all "who's chainsaw arm? He wants to play bioshock with you?" And I was all oh that's my friend. You can't play with him anyways you don't have live. So that's why I, or rather my dad didn't play bioshock with you.

      So I figured I'd tell you.

      I think that would be so fun! Only if like a ton of people lived there though. I would not want to be there by myself! But if others were there imagine the possibilities! Massive game of hide and seek, ya'll!

      From Newberg to Newberg. :p
      And because we hate it at this house, it's too big and the people who keep urging us to buy it (I just we just rent it?) like never do what they're supposed to like with the repairs and all. So we're just tired of it. And really, 2 of us for a house this big? No, we don't need it. Like over half the rooms we never use / even go in.

    • MissMegatron

      8 years ago

      Oh yes! I'm moving and am sooooo excited! It's not too far from where I live now, so uh, but I'm still excited!!!

    • MissMegatron

      8 years ago

      I totally will! Just later :p I've already packed all my games so I can't see them right now, and I'll have to ask my brother about his so I can put his down too since I'll be able to play those as well/
