Mass Effect 3 Discussion
How else could your squad suddenly get back to the Normandy and for some reason the Normandy left Earth in the middle of the fight for the galaxy. Will the DLC coming give us the "real" ending? Here is a twitter response from one of the game producers

"Hardest. Day. Ever. Seriously, if you people knew all the stuff we are planning...you'd, we'll - hold onto your copy of me3 forever. "
That could mean a lot of things, but who knows.
I've seen the things of the endings not being real, but I dunno... I said in another thread that if the end was "all just a dream" then it was all pointless. Well, that last part where you don't actually do anything except talk, but it was still a pretty lengthy sequence, part of which the outcome depended on your Paragon/Renegade level, so you do work towards it.
I won't complain if they add a new ending, but if it turns out to be "not real", I'll be disappointed. Either way, I'm definitely excited to see what they'll do next.
My own opinion on the Normandy being chased from the system by the energy field is that once the citadel started bowing up and spewing green/red/yellow **** everywhere, I imagine Hackett would order a speedy retreat, as they wouldn't have a clue whether or not it'll pass them by or blow them up. As it is it caused the Normandy to crash.

If the ending sequences really just were an indoctrination hallucination why the hell didn't sovereign just use that in ME1 during the Citadel account to hold Shepard away from the controls.
I don't know there's a lot of speculation out there but the endings just don't make sense to me, no matter how you put it
I know what you mean, but I have been thinking that the endings are most likely a set-up for the next part of the story set in the same universe. Kind of like reading a book that is part of a series, the ending only makes sense for that specific book, but not the entire story the author is attempting to write.
I believe they did assume you played the Arrival DLC, because Shepard had been held on Earth for six months to keep the Batarians from starting a war with the Alliance, over the destruction of one of their colonies.

I'm playing through again, and I dunno... the theory is that the kid isn't really there in the beginning sequence and only Shep can see him, the dreams are indoctrination, and the child all along is the Avatar. What's to say that the child is really there and blown up in the shuttle, that the dreams are just the writers way of showing us the stress and mental state of Sheps mind, along with a kind of survivors guilt, and that the Avatar only takes the form of the boy because it can see into his mind, and chooses the boy from that memory as its appearance.

Looks like Skyheart beat me to it, thats what I had thought, was that the game assumed you had. And it was 300,000 some Batarians that died.
