On Friday, executive producer Casey Hudson published a letter online saying, "This is not the last you’ll hear of Commander Shepard." Numerous online petitions from fans asking BioWare to change Mass Effect 3's endings have surfaced since the game's release earlier this month. One fan claims he filed a complaint with the FTC.
The endings were ruined by a friend...that being said i'm still playing through the game for the first time and I see no big deal about the ending. Yes it's not what people may have wanted but it probaly makes sense. I don't want something like this to ruin BioWare so people really need to ease back on this...taking it to the FTC, really?
They do not need to change the ending. It was what it was, and it was their decision to include what they did. They should stand by it.
Man, I've never heard such an uproar over a game's ending. I might check out the series sometime in the future, but I really don't want to spoil this ending because I want to see it for myself if it's really this bad.
