Gamers: 1 Bioware: 0 As New Mass Effect 3 Ending Announced?

by Charles PowersMarch 21, 2012

So Bioware has released a statement saying that the “unprecedented” uproar from the fans and are “planning to directly address it.”

In a letter to the fans, BioWare co-founder, Dr. Ray Muzyaka, said:

“I personally believe Mass Effect 3 is the best work we’ve yet created. So, it’s incredibly painful to receive feedback from our core fans that the game’s endings were not up to their expectations. Our first instinct is to defend our work and point to the high ratings offered by critics – but out of respect to our fans, we need to accept the criticism and feedback with humility.

Exec Producer Casey Hudson and the team are hard at work on a number of game content initiatives that will help answer the questions, providing more clarity for those seeking further closure to their journey. You’ll hear more on this in April.”

[pullquote_left]The sense of entitlement is strong with this one.[/pullquote_left]We gave Mass Effect 3 a 5/5, and with over half of our staff having played the game it was a near unanimous decision. Yes the ending was not what we expected, or what we could call Bioware-caliber, but then the question can be asked: As gamers, what are we entitled to?

Having been heavily vested in the Mass Effect series I was admittedly disappointed in the ending, especially with all of the hours that went in to creating my Shephard, but I didn’t feel it warranted anything more than a sad demeanor or a Twitter rant at most.

Either way, we shall wait and see what Bioware has up their sleeves.

    This game is garbage, its always been, the devs suck.

  • red.guy.100

    So theres a reason i didnt buy this game

  • Serena Frieden

    I have actually very good concepts for some video game titles but I never genuinely want to have video clip sport creating become my profession. So is it feasible to get into speak to with a company like bioware and deliver them my comprehensive concepts and images to them. I would most likely fill a notebook full of data for them to develop the game on. So yea do you feel they will take it into consideration or am I just throwing away my time.

  • Abbey Spencer

    Just looking for opinions. One Thing like the liberty that Bethesda gives and the storytelling from Bioware. Would you purchase it?

  • Dollie Mccrystal

    I heard from Up Coming Gen Techniques that there was a rumor about a New zombie recreation that was to be formulated by Bioware. I was questioning is this genuine and if it’s gonna be an RPG complete customizable game. I would like it to be true. But I really want to know, is it?

  • Maricela Rothrock

    I just bought the sport Dragon Age: Origins for playstation 3. I redeemed the code online for the Dragon Blood Armor (or no matter what its called). It states I should log into my EA/Bioware account to retrieve it. So how do I log into this account on my ps3 in purchase to download the armor?

  • Heidi Cabrera

    I heard from Next Gen Strategies that there was a rumor about a New zombie sport that was to be produced by Bioware. I was wondering is this true and if it can be gonna be an RPG complete customizable game. I would like it to be true. But I actually want to know, is it?

  • Annette Cutter

    I would atleast like to know what happend to the lover i chose and a little nearer on what happend to the galaxy. All we know is that the mass relays blew up and absolutely everyone is now stuck. Yet Another factor that would be wonderful is much more alternatives at the finish also.

  • gail C

    I’m new to this stuff, and seeing as how they don’t have any Bioware cards in stores, i was wondering if this was a possible way to do it.

    Thanks for any helpful answers!

    You know how U can register Bioware games on there social website you have too enter a number code that’s supposedly on the case somewhere but the only number code I see is the one under the barcode and that doesnt work Help please.

  • gail C

    I was wondering if any of you guys have heard anything on the next elders scroll game and kotor3 and what is the new lord of the rings game going to be about. I alerady go to gametab and ign so don’t tell me to go there please tell me if you know.

  • Terrence

    I personally don’t have a problem with It woulda been nice to have a bit more info on what happened but did Bioware say anything on changing it?

  • The Villain

    By how similar, I mean role playing. While I have heard Jade Empire has meaningful choices, I don’t know how similar the dialog is. Also, does Jade Empire have a party system where you can have relationships with other party members?

  • Jeracoo L

    Say I wanted to start a topic, so I tweeted:

    “Retweet this to help get #example trending!”

    How many retweets would it take to get #example trending?

    And, can JUST retweets get it trending? Or would people have to actually make their own tweets with #example ??

    Thanks!

  • clntvrrt

    I would atleast like to know what happend to the lover i chose and a little closer on what happend to the galaxy. All we know is that the mass relays blew up and everyone is now stuck. Another thing that would be nice is more choices at the end also.

  • Bryant B

    The upcoming MMORPG takes place appx. 300 years after Knights of the Old Republic and the Sith Lord games. Why are they not releasing a KOTOR 3 instead?

  • Smashing Pumpkins

    Also, what do you think makes it the best. Only discuss Bioware games, thanks!

  • kerrin marz

    Wouldn’t it be totally awesome if Bioware made a prequel to mass effect based on the first contact with the aliens? I think it would be an amazing game to actually play through how the humans discovered the mass relay and everything! Do you agree? Opinions?

  • evangldbrg

    can i buy BW points via cards or is it completely virtual?

  • United

    i need to link my bioware account to my gamer-tag so i can unlock some weapons and armour can any one help me.

  • ibjammin44

    Well it seems that when I go to the livestream channel it doesn’t show the video

  • norrin_shadowwolf

    Just looking for opinions. Something like the freedom that Bethesda gives and the storytelling from Bioware. Would you buy it?

  • louisewoods1984

    Was it the Edmonton one, montreal one, or Houston one?

  • sethburger

    Now they can’t use him in any other game?

  • Xedo

    I want to know what software, like Lightwave 3d or 3DS Max 2010, they use to render and create these awesome trailers.

  • Benihana

    I’m trying to send a message to Bioware about how their needs to be more hair and voices for shepard(for certain ethnicities). What webpage do I go to and where on the webpage do I go to?

  • ttocs

    Its been a while since they made the mark of the assassin and I heard about them making DA 3. Out of curiosity did any information about a dlc or expansion made to some up Hawke’s adventure? Or at least give fans a something to do in DA 2.

  • Nick

    I purchased the dvd but it won’t let me install any other way except by downloading from Origin. What’s better, I can’t acces Origin, there is an error saying “The origin network could not be reached”.
    Why can’t I install the game from the dvd if I have one? Why am I required to download the game I bought on the dvd?

  • sethburger

    Just like the question states. I missed the segment for BioWare’s Star Wars: The Old Republic at this Years E3. Where can I find the full stream online?

    Thanks!

  • Spider Pc

    They consistently deliver quality RPGs, and have given me some of the best gaming experiences I’ve had… KotOR, Mass Effect, Baulders Gate… They never disappoint!

  • Dana G

    I remember that they said they would be coming out with another ending, after so many people were angered by the original ending, but that was some months ago. What gives?

  • mrankinmatt

    If they do will i have to rebuy mess effect 3, or will it be a dlc ending,and how would that work

  • Kaylla

    I just bought the game Dragon Age: Origins for playstation 3. I redeemed the code online for the Dragon Blood Armor (or whatever its called). It says I must log into my EA/Bioware account to retrieve it. So how do I log into this account on my ps3 in order to download the armor?

  • Salam

    i was just thinkin about after recently beating the mass effect series, and then playing skyrim.
    i like the openness, Environment of Bethesda games,…… but i like the art style of Bioware, and the cinematic, and emotion they put into the characters

  • Shay H

    It’s very sad! I’m devastated! I live in Pakistan and a lot of people in this region pirate games but i bought all 3 games full price ! and I payed 5000 rupees for MASS EFFECT 3 and the ending? Fuck bioware !
