EA is pretty bad

More than bad man, they're pretty much THE worst.

Let's not forget about Activision and Bobby boy.

Mass Effect 3 deserved so much better. I hope EA and Bioware learn from their mistake.
tristanwerbe  +   637d ago

Bioware's founders have actually left, hopefully they wil start up a new studio and be wary of large publishers next time around.

On another note, hopefully this won't turn Bioware into an empty shell of Kinect throwaways or worse like Rare.

Yeah, because it's not just the ending that sucked, but the whole game instead, because it's full of nearfed mechanics, like autodialogue and fetch quests. In some ways it feels like Mass Effect 2 was just a more clever game.

endings suck
listenkids  +   637d ago
Personally never minded the ending, it left me to my own interpretation and imagination. The hate, like most things these days, was really just a couple of people moaning getting a mass of internet sheep following suit. Free multiplayer packs and almost a year later and it's still mentioned, move on.

As a side note, I hate EA beyond words, this is in no way a bias opinion. I haven't finished a wave 10 in MP since last march due to technical errors.

Herp derp.
linkenski  +   637d ago
Believe me there are a lot of genuine reasons why fans dislike the endings. They are very inconsistent to the rest of the game for one, and they were specifically promised to be completely different.

And there are many things prior to the ending that turned some people off, like how combat-focused the game had become compared to ME1 and ME2.

I say, for ME4 Bioware should not do all that unnecessary PR stuff, where they promise you that you're gonna have this and that for the story in the game.
listenkids  +   637d ago
Technically, the game at 3 was the best. ME1 has dated, I played it prior to release in 2005 and have been a fan since. I get the fact people have issues, I never said they didnt, but people had issues without even playing it.

the game has aged well you just dont enjoy it.

Ah, the beauty of hindsight.

Way to go EA, NOW you start talking about what you could've and should've done. It's too freaking late for that.

The real shame is that what could've been a great game has been blighted forever by the poor decisions made by EA, and the game didn't deserve that.

Sums it up lol
Thatlalala  +   635d ago
Exactly, fans had so much hope for that game, and ironically the game is about hope. Then they crush it with their bare hands right in front of you.
