BioWare’s Mass Effect 3 recently led slews of comments and reactions from fans.
Though no specific mudslinging or commentaries have been thrown towards the game’s gameplay variables or game in-game features, the game’s ending is what many are not all that happy about, with protests telling BioWare to do a redo of the game’s ending.
The subject isn’t really what one can describe as new or a first in gaming history, but the activities and follow ups do bear a message coming from fans; we are serious. Do a retake of Mass Effect 3’s ending.
A “Retake Mass Effect” petition is one example, which was initiated by fans and has recently donated more than $67,000 to the Child’s Play charity. The act was done in the hopes of getting BioWare’s attention in redoing the third Mass Effect’s ending to more satisfying undertones.
So far, BioWare’s stance is: “We are actively and seriously taking all player feedback into consideration and have ruled nothing out. At this time we are still collecting and considering your feedback and have not made a decision regarding requests to change the ending.”
BioWare was founded in 1995 in Canada, currently owned by the USA-based Electronic Arts (EA Games). It is one of the longest running known game developer names, with game titles including Baldur’s Gate and Neverwinter Nights.
The Mass Effect trilogy is a series of sci-fi oriented action RPG games with the first Mass Effect coming out in 2007. Its popularity has led to spin offs, including Mass Effect paperbacks and comic books, with announced plans of film adaptation releases to be made.
The latest Mass Effect, Mass Effect 3, was released on March 6 this year, and so far, its ending has put a lot of attention towards the game and on BioWare.
Have you tried playing Mass Effect 3? Is the ending really that bad?
