Just finished first play-through of Mass Effect 3 and without spoiling anything, WTF! :eek: Is my ending always going to this bleak without playing the MP?

From what I gather, ending is always going to be this bad, even if you play MP.

is ME3 so short that you guys can beat it in 5 days?

Or are you guys just obsessive?

"Obsessive" is a good word. Took me around two and half days to finish, according to my save I put 40+ hours into it... that should give you idea of how much I played :P

But what can I say, the game is pretty good until the ending.

I'll just do what I did with ME1 and 2; Get it cheap.

Somewhat regret not getting a ME2 edition with all DLC though, not really fond of having to get them like this. To do before buying ME3 or not to do, that's the question... (probably replay both anyway, enough time before the inevitable pricedrop)

ME2 with Cerberus network DLC is pretty dec.

Otherwise, I intend to pick up ME3 once the price goes down, or just wait til my birthday.

We'll see about the ending

Well, I've already said that ME3 would be the last game I buy from Bioware. Screw DA3 whenever it comes out. Too many fukups on their part for the last 2 years. Actually, the ending feels like even a bigger let down exactly because the game itself was pretty good.

And it's only been 5 days? man we all need help...

Who would of thought that 10 minutes could ruin a 35 hours of solid story. Oh well, here's hoping for good dlc

Free DLC is nice (though the Hammerhead really sucks :().
Though paying for the other ones... that's what I wonder 'bout... Probably should get Shadowbroker seeing how everyone loves it though...

The conclusion with Mass Effect 3 is that it was a fun ride until the last 10 minutes of the game where BioWare failed so lamentable that it destroyed the whole series. All they achieved in the trilogy was flushed down the toilet.
I truly hope that they hear the fan community and release a DLC with more endings. I would like a DLC with a totally different conclusion to the trilogy not with that wannabe ending.

I have experience in ruined franchises.

This math equation should sum up my feelings on the matter:

iKotOR3 > TOR

Heh, no, I think this time we are witnessing something really special. I haven't seen such a wave of hatred in the gamers community before. If Biowar and EA don't listen to all those voices, they'll go down. Hell, check Metacritic, ME3 has even a lower score than the sadly known Dragon Age 2!

The Ending feels very rushed. its like bioware planned something epic, then ea comes up and says "If you don't finish this game in a week we'll have to let you go."
that could explain the crapiness of the ending from a story perspective and the bugginess of it from a gameplay perspective.

that being said i've enjoyed many bioware games, but it seems since ea came onboard the quality has gone downhill. Why can't they just use the Valve/Blizzard method and say its done when its done?

I haven't played Mass Effect 3 and won't until April but, I know EA has a history of ruining companies they buy out. I feel sorry for Bioware the creator of Dragon Age: Origins and Star Wars: KotOR two of the best RPGs to ever exist. I don't have any sympathy for EA since they are ruining Bioware though. I wish Bioware hadn't been bought I mean imagine how awesome Dragon Age II would have been if they hadn't of had EA breathing down their necks as that game just screams "rushed by EA!". Bioware makes amazing games but, as I've said it doesn't help when you have a major publisher breathing down your neck constantly telling you to get the game out now.

EA pulled a LA?

So BioWare feels how Obsidian did with KOTOR2? 0_0

Pretty much sums it up except that there is evidence EA rushed Bioware on more than one game which makes EA's record doing that sort of thing worse than what LA did with K2 (although what LA did was still pretty bad). I still see DA: II (although a good game) as a prime example of what happens when Bioware has EA breathing down their necks. You can obviously tell DA: II was rushed by the constant reusing of dungeon models and a story that needed fleshed out more.

I haven't played DAII, but that's an interesting conjecture considering that originally, ME3 was slated for a November/December 2011 release. Seems a little inaccurate to say that EA was rushing them if they ended up getting 4/5 extra months.

Then again, you could argue that a November release date was unrealistic, showing early signs of insane rushing, and that a March release was maybe more realistic.

But even then, why not later?

I don't know guys, I think someone at Bioware got really lazy towrad the end. As to who that might be is anyone's guess.

ME 3 was really well done, few bugs, even fewer than with ME2, a good story (8/10), but the end was a disaster.
