TVGB: "Mark this one under rumor for now, but it looks like BioWare will start making good on its Mass Effect 3 promises at PAX this week."
True ending dlc at 599 US dollars? The reapers are really Giant enemy crabs, and the crucible was to attack their weak point for massive damage? (srry for e3 puns) No I kid, but they better clarify that ending, and release the content for free in order to prevent them from looking bad due to the rEApers
I hope it is the actual ending and not some BS extra character that adds nothing to the story and are a waste of time.
I hope for the same... but, all things considered, I'd bet against it. We ARE talking about EA, after all.
Whatever it is... It'l cost you at least 10 bucks. Thanks EA! -_-
My prediction is that it will be ending DLC, and the 'amazing' part will be that's its free. Because Bioware really doesn't want to be the first company to charge for the ending of a video game that people have already payed for.
CRAB PEOPLE, CRAB PEOPLE, LOOK LIKE CRABS BUT TALK LIKE PEOPLE

taste like crab, talk like people
Mass effect! Maaaaaaaaaaaaass Effeeeeect!
I've played all of ME3, and I've watched the Indoctrination Theory video, and I have to say the Theory is pretty solid, I reckon the DLC picks up from Shepard being in the rubble in London, as hinted by the "Destroy" ending with Shepard breathing.
Yep there is definitely compelling evidence for the indoc theory. Lets hope something good happens this week.
I strongly believe that the indoc theory has to be true, due to the overwhelming amount of evidence that has been collected throughout all 3 games and even the novels. This HAS to be it, or Bioware really dropped the ball with the ending. I have been supporting the indoc theory since it was conceived, and for it to be something else.... Bioware must have a really good reason as to why the game ended like that, or they really screwed up
Bioware did really drop the ball with the ending. Even if the indoctrination theory is true. All the indoctrination theory does is fix some of the plot holes and bad writing, it does nothing to solve the main problems of the ending--the complete lack of effect for player choices, and the lack of any epilog. And it's probably not true. Do you really think any developer would make put a dialog choice near the end of the game where the player has a 66% chance of getting a BAD END, with nothing to indicate where that 33% chance might be? Indoctrination theory is no more than a desperate attempt to make ME3 seem like a better game than it was. Mass delusion.
@canary I agree with you 100% the indoc theory is just a Mass delusion. I guess fans can accept a bad ending so they make up their on. I never heard about this in any video game. LOL
"-the complete lack of effect for player choices, and the lack of any epilog. " Yeah that is kinda the point of the indoctrination. They can fix this, but i really don't like the idea of selling a key-story feature as DLC.
Its very likely that the ****spoiler **** ****** Indoctrination ending was planned all along. Followed by the DLC conclusion. ******End of Spoilers ******* Lets just hope that we are not charged for the privilege to see the ending through.
If you believe in Indoctrination theory as a planned thing, you're saying you believe they shipped without an ending, knowing full well that there are people out there who will never get the ending at all because they don't have their console on the net, with the ultimate purpose of charging us extra to have an ending to a game. If it were planned that way, and they intended all along to charge us for the ending, it would make Bioware the company that finally, truly destroyed single-player gaming and the story-driven game experience. I don't mind them stealing the idea. And if they had it before, I don't mind them unlocking it on the disc. But anything else is pretty horrific to me.
Look at FFXIII-2 and Asura's Wrath. They both have planned DLC endings you can only get online. I wouldn't put it past EA to do the same with ME3.
I'm with you. However the evidence associated with the indoctrination theory is overwhelming. I was very ..Very.. disappointed in Bioware following the ending of ME3 (Primarily because I could not understand how 6 years of excellent writing within a wonderfully immersive universe could be undone in the final 10 minutes of the trilog. However immediately felt incredibly trolled by Bioware after see a couple of well done indoctrination theory posts on You Tube. Also keep in mind that Bioware has never promised a "New" ending, only additional clarity following the events in the ME3 ending. Your above statements are partially true for now. Bioware would have to charge us for the 'clarity' to make it whole.. let’s hope that does not happen.
Its possible the ending just sucked.
I am a BioWare fan and love the mass effect series...but I honestly think all of this was planned, I don't know if it was pressure from E.A. or if they both thought it was a good idea. Leaves a sour taste though, sad thing is I will pay for dlc if I have too, I love mass effect that much, I'm not the only one and they know it.
agree accept forc paying for dlc part. I do have some willpower
Give this ending to us for free and fans will rejoice. Make us pay for the real ending of the series and people will throw a hissy fit. It'll be interesting to see what they do.
Its E.A Nuff said...
Could someone please explain to me what is meant by indoctrination ending, thanks.
Search: "Mass Effect 3 - Shepard's Indoctrination (NEW)" Watch that video. Then search: "ME3 Indoctrination Theory & DLC "Ending" Proof" Watch that video. Should explain everything.
here is the video guys http://www.youtube.com/watc... OHH for those of you that haven't finished the game SPOILER ALERT!! (WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON THIS PAGE!!)
http://www.forbes.com/sites... also just do some googling, there are variation of the theory.
And here in lies the problem. You have to go on fucking YouTube for the ending to make sense. A good ending does just that ends the franchise on its own. Not requires you to do additional research to understand it. So stupid, I was looking forward to the re release of baldurs gate, but after this, forget bioware.
My brother who has only seen me play parts of ME2 and ME3 (enough to get the gist of the story) started thinking Shepard was indoctrinated while I was playing the ending. I figured partially too, so it doesn't take a huge explanation to get it. I go look at the theory online after I completed the game, and woah, other people thinking the same thing and massive amounts of proof. So I don't think it's that far-fetched.
It's probably the rest of the ending they've managed to finish off and now selling as DLC....making it look like they've only worked on it because of the "uproar" but in fact have been working on it since November when the first ending leaked.
As much as I hope the indoctrination theory to be true, judging from Bioware's initial reactions I would say the ending we have now is the ending Bioware intended, though they never expected such vigorous reactions
Apparently Jessica Noob-bot is a man and all you people have been tricked into man love.
Will the announcement be something like this??? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
let put it this way if there is going to be a dlc real ending ill just watch the "real endings" on you tube a couple days after its released & give EA the bird on paying extra for something that should have been given!
in the words of the TNG recut version of captain picard(to EA): F*ck you, I'm not giving you sh*t.
No Mass Effect 3 DLC, please?
Why should there be an "amazing" announcement for a SP game, the end of a trilogy, that was already released. Shouldnt all of the amazing stuff already have happened?
Stop it. You are making sense and this is the internet, there is no room for that !
Prepare your wallets, pull down your pants and bend over. Thats all i read.
mass effect is now the new dragon age. not interested in EA's quest for global domination, sorry bioware but it was going to happen eventually. next EA will ruin battlefield with subscriptions and i'll be playing no EA games, except .skate3 (which EA ruined with DLC and then killed off so no chance of spending anymore on that series either) EA get your shit together or GTFO and go chase the mobile dollar and leave the real games to publishers that care about the games (if there is any left)
doesn't matter what they do, ME fans will only whine, cry, and moan about it then selfishly donate more money to try and get bioware to change whatever it is they release... instead of speaking with their wallets by *not* supporting bioware to show them how disappointed they are. they'll also spend too much time "philosophizing" as to why things don't make sense, and nitpick over the "plot holes."
Kind of done with Mass Effect now, I beat ME3, I feel like it's over. Time to move on to other games and leave the drama behind.
I'm just ready for this whole thing to be over. I don't think anyone's gonna get what they want out of ending dlc, mostly because it reminds me of Persona 3 FES. Now P3 had a fairly vague ending that was open to interpretation, sorta like what a number of people have done with ME3. Then the second campaign, "The Answer" comes along and the ending's meaning is written in stone, and I didn't particularly like what actually happened. I really feel like that's what's gonna happened here.
to be honest, I wasn't that upset with the ending. I guess that's because I seen worst Soul Reaver Deception comes to mind. I haven't seen an ending worth my money since Zelda Ocrina of Time wait Final Fantasy 8 was worth my 49.99. I enjoyed 3s experience and moved on. Hell, the ending to me was like driving a rose royce with a dent in it. Yeah it's messed up, but not that serious :)
The ending has holes but I kind of knew there was going to be more. Every huge game has DLC and, if ME3 is anything like ME2, there will have to be more. It wouldn't surprise me if they ended the game where they did in response to the script leak and they always planned to change things. That being said, EA is going to have to give away any ending-related DLC to shut up the naysayers.
I'm hoping that whatever they decide to release, they do it soon. The MP is starting to get stale (@N7 340 or so now), and I'm waiting on them for more SP content to do my Insanity playthrough. I also hope if they do release content, they do so in packs, rather than charging for SP DLC and MP DLC separate. If they do that, I'll be skipping the SP DLC until it drops in price and stick to the MP.
Doubtful. It'll probably be "mediocre" and "underwhelming".
Call me pessimistic, but after all the negativity surrounding Mass Effect 3 and it's ending, I don't think anything could really help fix the ending in many of the fans eyes. Besides, once you have played the ending, that is going to be ingrained in your memory, and anything designed to improve it or replace it will only feel like a 'patch'. I personally couldn't care less if they 'fixed' the ending, but I think for many, the damage has already been done. Once someone is cut deep, the scar is always going to remain.
Yeah sure, we all know Bioware and their promises. Here are some "promises" about ME3 from Bioware producers: -“In Mass Effect 3, you know you need to take back Earth, but the path to victory is less clear at the outset. You won’t just find some long-lost Reaper “off” button; says Hudson” -“Don’t expect to win the loyalty of the galaxy by simply completing a series of fetch quests,” -"I honestly think the player base is going to be really happy with the way we've done it. You had a part in it. Every decision you've made will impact how things go. The player's also the architect of what happens." -"Whether you're happy or angry at the ending, know this: it is an ending. BioWare will not do a "Lost" and leave fans with more questions than answers after finishing the game" -"You'll get answers to everything. That was one of the key things. Regardless of how we did everything, we had to say, yes, we're going to provide some answers to these people." So yeah, fuck you and your promises, Bioware.
Wow its like they took that list and did the opposite of everything on it.
Well what ever it is, looks like i wont be getting it... My live account has been suspended because the fools kept trying to charge my card, a card i told them not to auto renew because it was close to experation.. They decided to let me be a gold member for 2 months and i didnt know cause i hardly play online and havnt for months. Instead of changing me to silver from the moment they didnt get the money, now they want me to pay for those 2 months.. I will not pay it and will no longer buy multiplats on the 360. And considering they dont have many exclusives it looks like i wont be buying any games at all. Should of just stuck with the ps3 this entire gen.. But i will for the rest of it. I didnt even know you had to be a gold member for netflix on live! Really ms! Good luck next gen ps4 will be my go to console.
