Amazon is allowing people who bought ME 3 from them to be able to send the game back for a full refund, even if the game was opened!

I was very tempted to try to get my money back, even though I bought retail.

Decided not to. Fact remains that I enjoyed the hell out of it until the last ten minutes. I suppose I'll just have to settle for not doing business with Bioware again.

Bioware worked on Jessica Chobot's likeness for a character who is not even slightly essential to the game. They put more work into her character than they did for Tali. Bosh'tets.

Yup, holding onto my copy for the *slight* hope that we get a endings DLC. I've stuck with Sheppard for 5 years, I can wait another year to see if we get some closure.

One of Bioware's co-founders speaks out about the ME3 end controversy.

Supposedly some new content that'll be announced in April will clarify things and give more closure.

From the comments I wouldn't expect much their busy clinging to critic reviews (which don't mean jack if the customer base doesn't give you money becuase they think it sucks) and are being defenseive about it.

Seriously is it that hard to consider that they screwed up.

They don't owe us anything. They made a great game that we bought, enjoyed the hell out of, and in some cases didn't like the ending.

Re: Mass Effect 3

^ It's more than in some cases, and given how important Fan feedback has been in the development of the games for something as important as the conclusion of the trilogy, I think it's perfectly acceptable for people to sound their opinion.

It would be different if the endings weren't all variations on the same theme, but they are.

Re: Mass Effect 3

Geoff Keighley's The Final Hours of Mass Effect 3 is now available for PC/Mac and Amazon Kindle (iPad version was the first to come out). I have yet to start reading the content about ME3 itself, but I am really enjoying reading about the early days of the universe, how big a gamble it was for BioWare at the time, and how the team came together to hash out story ideas.

I've read the Final Hours story; unfortunately I thought the ME3 coverage was a bit shallow. It covered the what, but it didn't seem to go that deep into the why.

I've just started a third run through the whole series, this time with a hardass, attitudinal FemShep...who I made to look like a certain similar female soldier I went through Afghanistan with.

Re: Mass Effect 3

Quick question

I hear that if you do the Galaxy at War on the PC it will raise the Galactic Readiness Level on the Xbox as well and vice versa. Does this work for the PS3 as well?

I'm pretty sure it's linked to your origin or xbox account, so there's probably no crossover between the two.

It's linked to your Origin account, which is why there's crossover between PC and Xbox - even if you're on 360 EA makes you have one to play. It should cross over with PS3 as well.

Well I hope so becuase then I can basically just use multiplayer on the PS3 which I do better on and reap the benefits on both the PC version which I can carry over stuff from both ME and ME 2 on and the PS3 version.

Re: Mass Effect 3

I just noticed something , On the PS3 version I loaded a save from ME 2 that had Mass Effect: Genesis to cover ME and apparently despite meeting her during Garrus' recruitment mission in Mass Effect aparently My Shepard has never met Dr. Michel before Mass Effect 3 weird.
