Bioware Still Trying to Resolve Ending Dispute… Worlds Burn due to Fanboy Rage

Honestly I’m a damn fanboy and even I am tired of hearing about this.

Still, since it’s my moral obligation to provide you guys with stuff to read at work (We all know what’s really going on here, I’m submitting expense reports as we speak…err…read), here is a new statement from the boys at Bioware that was posted on the Mass Effect Face Book Page: 

“We are aware that there are concerns about a recent post from this account regarding the ending of the game. In this post it was stated that at this time we do not have plans to change the ending. 

We would like to clarify that we are actively and seriously taking all player feedback into consideration and have ruled nothing out. At this time we are still collecting and considering your feedback and have not made a decision regarding requests to change the ending. 

Your feedback and opinions are of the utmost importance to us. We apologize for any confusion this has caused. Our top priority regarding this discussion is to keep communication with you, our loyal fans, open and productive.”

Here is the thing, loyal readers: I think the time for consideration has passed. I think that fans of the series that enjoyed the ending as is should not have the existing endings removed from the game entirely. I also think that the fans who have tried to implement an ‘all your corporate offices are belong to us’ strategy to get the endings changed should also get what they want.

Now, “I’m just a young girl and know little of the ways of war,” but if Bioware/EA wants to make both camps happy, the solution here is to release a free DLC that alters the ending in a way that keeps the existing endings intact, but adds some other options for people who want them as well as adding some end-game cinematic’s that resolve the story in a manner that soothes the flames of nerdrage they’ve already generated.

You already did a launch day DLC, Bioware. Is a free DLC to try and make sure your fans remain fans so hard?

That’s Yo “I’m So Sick of Writing About This its Noon and I Need a Beer!” Garbage!
