    • Why do you say that do you not have an open mind or not hate I respect all comments but insulting all of us for an idea to why the ending didn’t impress the fans is not helping you.

      • Hanar

        There is no conspiracy in video games wow you and your friends co workers whatever are just crazy a**holes you try to mess with peoples head!!!

        • Tell that to Bioware using odd ideas and flawed plot holes in there ending to mess with peoples heads and somehow they pull the IT out of all that I am a fan of Mass Effect but did not know there was that much lore and stuff into it.

      • Jeff

        I want to know if EA is in my mind?

        • We got another podcast coming out that will actually help with that question

  • Larka

    What if Bioware indoctrated there fanbase?

    • There will be more articles and podcast coming that will explain things like this 🙂 stay tuned

  • Adolf

    So bioware was rushed?

  • Ducky

    F*** EA

  • Kasumi

    I hope Bioware hears this those evil assholes should be fired

  • BlackJack 21

    Citadel sounds like shit

  • Wiky

    Didn’t bioware creators quit?

  • Ill

    we are watching you

    • Morgan

      That’s kinda weird….unless your EA! Or a troll…

  • black

    Oh, they might still be EA’s whore. But ME3’s “failure”, in particular, was by no means EA’s fault. Bioware is an honest company, if nothing else. While they are published by EA and co-funded, they’d still find ways to subtly tell the fans what went down. It showed some integrity on their end that they wouldn’t change the ending. I can respect that. Their writers made it, it’s still their baby.
    But, again, EA doesn’t have the political swing needed to wipe people out of the industry.

  • Hannah

    EA are assholes, but they aren’t stupid. If they asked for money with Multiplayer and the EC, they would have made the biggest mistake in their history. They made it free to make us shut up. And it worked with some of people, but it didn’t change the fact that EA ruined Bioware’s work.

  • Demondragon 8

    Shepard’s story is over but the world of mass effect will still go on according to Bioware.

  • Jeff

    Oh, I’m very familiar with the indoctrination theory. I originally liked it quite a bit. Unless you’re implying that I’m indoctrinated or something 🙂

  • DickBox 720

    You know there’s only 1 ending, right? Just different colors.

  • EA rules

    Im pretty shure EA knows what there doing idiots conspiracy a****s

    • How do we not know what we are doing?

      • Jeff

        Shutup you b*** f*** you and your little f*** friends

  • Love me

    Have you seen Citadel it looks retarded as f***

  • Garrus

    Now EA made a shit ending that’s like 3 colors but 1 flavor of zebra shit and don’t ask me how I know that….not proud of it

  • Harbinger

    F*** CITADEL BULL***

  • Nassana

    Citadel looks good but they said weird things about ending changing we can only hope

  • Lyle

    Ending sucks demand new one

  • Drake

    MW3 has a better ending than this….

  • Jack

    Ending was great you guys are pieces of s***

  • Mark

    Well in Citadel shepard was cloned….

  • Britt

  • Nick Roll

    Citadel was awesome best DLC but we still want a new ending we are waiting

  • Blacktor




  • Kevin

    Yeah ending sucks but Citadel made up for it

  • Brofist

    Bioware was supposed to be the fans sword not a dagger in our back!

  • Griesyburger

    EA truly is the worst company in ‘merica

  • Karly

    F*** EA greedy bas****

  • Halle Berry

  • Max Dillow

    I used to work at a company EA owned trust me they are the devil…

    • Which company?

      • Max Dillow

        PopCap but now I have a better job than being EAs b***

  • James R

    I really do not mind the ending. I don’t understand what the rage is about. If a movie doesn’t have a good ending, discuss it and MOVE ON. Don’t ask a creator to change it, that is THEIR idea, not ours. I like the ending because as frequently stated in the series there is no hope of winning the Reaper War conventionally. OH BUT because of one commander these “machine-devils” that had been through thousands and thousands of cycles (believed to be around for a few hundred million years) and had seen all the same shit before would be defeated in battle? HELL NO. Battling the Reapers at the Crucible would be EXACTLY what the Reapers would want, it saves them the trouble of finding them. One of my friends believes that the last battle was just one aspect of the Reapers’ Indoctrination process of Shep. I believe in the IT, and after choosing Destroy Shepard may wake up and actually USE the Crucible (not that we will ever know). If we just go off what is shown to us then still we can save the galaxy and end the Reapers. If the Crucible was out of the picture or didn’t work, everyone would die as they always have. And what player would willingly agree to seeing their galaxy and efforts destroyed in a cutscene? What, were they going to say suddenly all other beings from other galaxies arrive and help defeat the Reapers?? Are there trillions of Rachni who escaped the Singing Planet’s destruction? Is there a trillion Protheans sleeping in caskets? What can defeat machines effectively? Bullets? That would take a lot of bullets and technology organic hands could simply not do WITHOUT the use of more machines. What stops machines is DISABLING THEM and/or OVERRIDING THEIR HARDWARE. No, this is the only reasonable option Bioware had left and I think they finished the series perfectly.

    • Some people just hated the lacked of true unscripted choices as for me I play to many games to get into just one but we had to get this one out but thanks for checking out the site James!!! Hope you come back

  • James R
