BioWare finally gives in to the legions of whiny, entitled ‘Mass Effect 3′ dorks

By / 03.22.12

The war is over; childish bitching and moaning on the internet has scored a victory. BioWare will indeed be bowing down to all the entitled, whiney Mass Effect 3 devotees who can’t stand the ending.

For those who haven’t heard, a contingency of Mass Effect 3 players are not pleased with how the game ends. First, they say that the ending is a downer (gee, too bad) and how it feels like the choices made during a game has no bearing on the conclusion (which is either poor game design or simply a creative choice, to further reinforce the dire, hopelessness of the ending).

A grassroots campaign was formed, called… get this… Demand a better ending to Mass Effect 3. Either through an update or DLC. Initially, BioWare responded with “look, we get that you’re all pissed, but we had a very specific idea of how everything should wrap up”. They also didn’t want to do the expectant. Fair enough.

But the bitching and moaning went on and on and on and on. So BioWare has just proclaimed enough is enough . Basically, “those seeking further closure” will finally get it; coming this April is what many suppose will be DLC that adds an alternate ending. Which is beyond retarded; when the hell did the game players become the game designers?

Many are claiming that they deserve better, for putting so much time and effort into the games, and especially for plunking so much down on b.s. DLC. I’ve never been a fan of BioWare nickel and diming its audience, but it’s not like they put a gun to anyone’s head either. And now they have an excuse to create even more money after the fact. Great.

Some are also saying this is a moral victory for the consumer. Whatever. Again, the amount of vitrol that Mass Effect 3 fans have exhibited is pathetic, more so than folks who are obsessed with fixing Star Wars. As an aside, pro-tip to those folk: it’s over, George has won the war. And if you don’t think he doesn’t enjoy every single brand new blog post or YouTube clip with instructions on a brand new way to re-consume his handiwork, then you’re a complete idiot.

Back to Mass Effect, by far the worst part is the aforementioned grassroots campaign. You’d think news of BioWare waving the white flag would be good enough. But of course not…
