I fully understand why people are upset. That doesn’t mean I agree with them. Obviously they don’t agree with me, which is just fine.

    Joe, you forget. His opinion is irrefutable fact. Possibly even law. Due to this, all other opinions are meaningless and even stupid.

    I’m currently playing through it again. I know what you mean about the Tigrex thing. A lot of this game reminded me of Monster Hunter (which is a good thing).
  • DmC: Devil May Cry gets a release date
    This happens a lot in the game industry. Games will get announced very early and not be out sometimes for 2 or 3 years. It doesn’t happen all the time, but it isn’t super rare either. Usually, when that happens, they announce the game for hype when it is just entering development.
  • The Walking Dead – Episode 1: A New Day Review
    To an extent you would be right. It plays out as an adventure game much in the way Heavy Rain did. I would say this game focusing more on story through choices while Heavy Rain focused more on story through your actual actions.

    It is. But it isn’t just this post. It is super-cool to comment on any and all posts. Tell your friends.

    To the commentators.
    Please watch this video, if nothing else it will help you to gain perspective as to why people are upset about the mass effect 3 ending. Spoilers.

    Yeaahhh, uh no… Its actually EA story. The Publisher owns the IP. The developer must do what publisher asks or they get no funding.

    • Joe Garcia

      Yep, Mass Effect does indeed belong to EA.

      That’s not necessarily how a developer-publisher relationship works, though. Ideally, a publisher trusts a developer to make something that’s both fun and creative, while also being profitable for them. I’ve never heard of a publisher intervening about a specific plot point or gameplay mechanic, threatening to pull the plug if it isn’t changed. Usually when a game gets canned, it’s because it simply isn’t shaping up to be something worthwhile — remember NBA Elite?

    If you have finished the game. Watch this.

    This an inaccurate representation, as video games usually are constructed threw a combined effort. Additionally it seems to me that:
    1. Publishers have been forcing developers to change endings for years.
    2. Video games leave the realm of being purely artistic creations when they enter a market. They are created for profit.
    3. I believe most of these people behind this movement are not “Demanding”
    nor feel they are “entitled” to anything. They are simply telling
    Bioware : Hey it would be really great if you guys did.

    • Joe Garcia

      I can’t agree with your second point. Almost everything ever made is created with the hopes of generating profit.

      Ultimately, my point is that, yeah, the ending to ME3 is a bit underwhelming in the scope of the entire series. Yet I still think that it’s highly thought-provoking, for better or worse.

      Frankly I’m just glad to see that a game’s story can be taken seriously enough to generate this kind of debate, whether I agree with the displeasure of others or not.
