Exactly what Ashton said.

I'd be fine with the depressing or gray endings, if the execution hadn't been so awful.

I would really hate it if Liara had Shepard's kids regardless given that my Sheps romanced Garrus and Thane. I mean, Liara got really pushed on us as it were.
Oh right, I originally came to this thread to say I now have the 360 version, in case anyone want to do multiplayer.

DESPERATELY, the group I had been playing with kind of pissed me off something fierce (well, one person in said group), so yes, I would love to roll in some multiplayer with you ladies and gentlemen.

TASTY!

Oh yeah, that's why I hate playing randoms precisely.

GT: Maas Effect. I'll likely be a really low-levelled Vanguard by the time you guys meet up with me (haven't started MP on the 360 yet). I'll try not to be one of those retarded Vanguards you always hear about. :-)

Yeah, I romanced Garrus as well, I don't want it.

But you have to admit, "special gift" and "different type of mind meld" really make it seem like that's what she was hinting at.

Absolutely brilliant article that everyone should read.  If you have not beaten Mass Effect 3 and do not want spoilers, do not click the link.

I've finished my review of ME3. Note: spoilers in review. I thought it improved on ME2 in a number of ways, such as the combat and main story, but retained several problems as well as introducing new ones.

I'm slowly trucking away. This game is just what I wanted it to be. The only beef I have is how slowly squad members are introduced. Over 10 hours in and no sign of Tali :(

The final reveal was fine, the execution was just a bit iffy.

I object to the final reveal, as well as everything else about the ending.

Code: [Select]
Mass relays cause stars to go supernova, as I recall. Even if they didn't, an explosion large enough to be seen on a galactic scale would certainly wipe out all life in the nearby systems. As far as I know, all systems inhabited by sentient races are, in fact, next to a mass relay. Whoops!

Secondly, the planet they land on: What guarantees are we given for Turians or Quarians to survive? Tali would have to live in her suit for the rest of her life – cut off from most of the technology which even makes her suit viable, and Turians can't even eat much of the same food as humans. Garrus would be shit outta luck, as would most Turians marooned on or near Earth. What about the Volus, or the Krogan? The Volus also have a containment issue. And the Krogan breed so quickly they'd probably eat up resources incredibly fast.

So basically all the ending shows is that despite ALL you have accomplished, all the hard work you put in, the galaxy is either:

a. Starving/fighting over supplies/generally fucked

b. Facing a giant diaspora of people who may or may not be able to survive in their new environments

c. Dead. Dead dead dead dead DEAD. Mass relay explosions killed everyone.

So yeah, the ending basically mugs the player for everything they've done.

I would wholly accept a DLC ending from BioWare, if only to wash out the disgusting taste of this one from my mouth.
