Mass Effect 3's Extended Cut: Bioware Makes Amends (Spoilers)

The Mind of Game Writes - " SPOILER ALERT!!! The Mass Effect 3 ending fiasco was probably the biggest display of consumer backlash against a game’s developer in years. You couldn’t look anywhere in the gaming press or on gaming forums without tripping over discussions of the “terrible” endings.

I remember quite well how I felt right after I saw it. Confusion. Then anger. Then…strangely, acceptance. The endings were still irredeemably terrible in my eyes, but I accepted them because I didn’t think I’d be seeing anything else. Then the backlash hit. Bioware’s forums were flooded with people protesting the endings and demanding a proper ending. I wasn’t one of them. I hated the endings but I also respected their artistic vision, as full of holes as it may have been. I was even disappointed when Dr. Ray Muzyka, co founder of Bioware, announced that an “Extended Cut” DLC pack would be released which would clarify the endings (but wouldn’t change them) and hopefully give Mass Effect fans some closure.

Well, I was disappointed until I saw the new endings. In their wake, I can put this unpleasantness with Mass Effect 3’s ending behind me. I finally have the closure I wanted from the start." (BioWare, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
