Games As I made very clear in my thorough review of Mass Effect 2, I'm a huge BioWare fan. This relationship got very, very cloudy when BioWare released Dragon Age II, a rush job with no story and atrocious gameplay. Mass Effect 3 looked like redemption - until I hit the terrible, terrible ending. The criticism of the ending has been so immense and consistent, BioWare is contemplating changing it. Of course, this story is riddled with spoilers, so be warned.

I bet most people are just upset of not seeing Shepard and Liara surrounded by lot of little blue children ;)


Haha, likely.

"Same" in the sense that the universe is fubar'ed anyway. All the effort you had put into bringing enemies together and ending ancient wars, it's all undone no matter which colour you pick at the end. Everyone dies or is about to die. You may have saved everyone only to get them killed when the relays explode.

It would be like a journey in the Lord of the Rings where mankind has pushed its limits through great courage and just barely won all those battles along the way, only to get all of middle earth whiped out by a supervolcano in which Frodo tossed the ring. (Although part of me would find that hilarious, but that's because I really dislike Frodo ;) )

So yeah, you may have plenty of ways to win, but your victory is entirely irrelevant.
