All the Mass Effect 3 Endings

Obviously, spoilers ahead.

The Mass Effect 3 ending has been an ongoing fiasco for Bioware and they claim to have addressed player’s concerns with new DLC.

For context, and an excellent description as to why the ending needed to change watch this detailed video. It’s worth it, trust me.

Thanks to David!

I thought it would be worthwhile to catalog all the endings in case the dreaded ME3 ending gets talked about again.

The original and incredibly lame endings:

Basically, all the endings come down to just picking a colour:

Extended Cut Endings:

All the new endings feel like filler rather than something worth the wait.

New Refusal ending:

Synthesis:

Control:

Bioware’s Galactic Gamble

Star Wars: The Old Republic is Bioware’s foray into the world of MMORPGs and it’s looking like their $200 million gamble will pay off. I never got into World Of Warcraft and I must admit that my enthusiasm for Star Wards is at an all-time low but I want to play this game!

The LA Times has a great short article on the game:

It may be the largest entertainment production in history. More than 800 people on four continents have spent six years and nearly $200 million creating it. The story runs 1,600 hours, with hundreds of additional hours still being written. Nearly 1,000 actors have recorded dialogue for 4,000 characters in three languages.

The narrative is so huge that writers created a 1,000-page “bible” to keep the details straight, and the director recently asked a colleague not to spoil moments he hadn’t yet seen.
