Another poster over there says that people using the free Mass Effect Datapad app for iOS are receiving an odd little message from the Virmire Survivor after completing the game.
That message may just be buggy - I got the one from Ashley, and I played a female who let her die!

(I did start ME3 with a male Shepard who let her live, but that character never got off Earth...)

On a different note, does anybody know where I can find the beta leak? I deliberately avoided it at the time, but now that I'm trying to find what was leaked I can't find anything...

I don't know anything about the possibility that a side mission with Thane had been planned, but I can say that there is one hanar who plays a role in a side quest on the Citadel. Shepard even calls him a "big stupid jellyfish," because... well, because he was an enormous idiot who could have handed the hanar homeworld over to the Reapers without a fight.

As for Thane's prayer: maleShep asks Kolyat why Thane needed forgiveness / redemption (however it was defined, can't recall right now), thinking (if I recall the thought process correctly) that Thane had already earned it by helping to stop the Collectors and by stopping Kai Leng's assassination attempt. Kolyat then informs Shepard that the prayer was not for Thane's own soul, but rather for Shepard.

Sounds like another sidequest I somehow missed! Just looking up a few things on the wiki and discovered that I missed the entire quest involving Conrad Verner! I did wonder at the totaly randomness with which he suddenly appeared to dive in front of that bullet...if only I hadn't have helped Jenna way back when...

I don't care if it's free, or cost me an arm and a leg. I just want this fixed. All will be forgiven.
This is exactly the reasoning to behind why the fans got this kind of ending... because they were smart enough to know they'd make money off of it.

Re: Mass Effect 3 $$(ENDINGS SPOILERS)$$

Just finished the game and while in some ways the ending is sort of fitting for who my Shepherd was I share the doubts some have expressed about the "reality" of the parts after you get the painful end of a Reaper blast.

Didn't notice the trees, but Anderson's involvement and the fact he is completely uninjured, and the Catalyst been the dead kid makes me very suspicious. Though the final scene with Anderson is a great scene. Not sure why they cut out some of it. That extra stuff really added to it.

Synthesis seems like the best option as it apparently breaks the cycle for good, but that final dream where you reach the kid and both burn makes me think that it's a hint not to trust/join the catalyst. So I've destroyed all non-organics and am hoping that the Catalyst is a lying piece of...software? and that something good comes from the post credit scene.

On MP, I've played it a bit, got my readiness up to 76% before I finished it. Might try for 100% so my character can be a war asset as well.

What really got me suspicious about the scene with Anderson is that despite supposedly following Shepard in (though he was nowhere in sight a second before) he managed to get to that room way ahead of her. Granted, Anderson's guts weren't threatening to spill out at any moment so he would have been moving faster, but then, there was only one way into that room and Shepard used it...so where did Anderson come from? Or the Illusive man for that matter.

Part of me feels that way, but part of me also realizes that EA knows ME is a cash cow. They've already stated not to get rid of your save data from to game. On top of that, every other Mass Effect game has had multiple DLC additions. I don't see why ME3 will be any different. Whether or not that DLC is an additional ending is another story but with as unpopular as the current ending is I'm sure EA will see it as a money making opportunity.

I'm sure you guys have seen the multiple 'endings' on one youtube video correct? Bioware is such a joke

Not to mention the good fortune that you just happen to be both transported to rooms that just happen to connect directly to a main control centre. You'd think if they were transporting live prisoners up they would have guards for crowd control...or at the very least they would lock the doors so they didn't have folks wandering around bringing million year old cycles to an end.

So what? I rarely ever visit the BSN forums, but it sounds like a significant number of people have been unable to voice their opinions in a reasonable manner. Locking the forums is therefore an entirely justified and appropriate reaction.

They locked the forums because of new information that just came out.

Not to give voice to those that have not yet given their opinion.
