Mass Effect 3 Discussion
Below, please see a message from Mass Effect 3 Executive Producer Casey Hudson in regards to discussion on the conclusion of Mass Effect 3:
Hopefully that calms a few people down. No it won't. But maybe? Nope. Just a little? Not gonna happen.
Sorry, conversation with my alter-ego. That's me!
Edit: Nobody saw that error!

Seems that this is the ending they wanted all along, and a few positive reviews allows them to say "see look we did right".
Seriously would STAR WARS (excluding the prequels) be as big as it is today if they ended it like ME 3.
Even Battlestar Galactica had a more in depth ending to a series.
All I can think when someone gives a response like this is they are in damage control, even though he quoted the "positive reactions"
Only problem is that if they stuff around too long with the DLC people will loose interest as the new games come out.
They have already put it out on the shinny red carpet for all to see. There not going to make a alternate ending will put them out of pocket. This is just dam control plain as. Maybe there will be some more DLC's as to what I can not say. But I do not think it will be an Alternate ending. Still am dam great game.
doesn't matter if its a PR Job or not or if its Bioware/EA joint troll exercise. what does matter is ur own personal experience of the franchise. personally i never over-analyze or over-fuss...i just try and have the best experience possible with what i'm given. i've thoroughly enjoyed and continue to enjoy the Mass Effect series and welcome any additional content they send my way that adds and enriches my experience of the series.

Simple fact: he hasn't said anything noteworthy at all.
He points out that it was always going to lead to a bitter-sweet ending. To me, bitter-sweet doesn't describe the endings we have, and I liked them. Who knows what he really meant by that.
The plan could have been all along to release the game like this, watch everyones reactions, get them talking and discussing them, etc etc, then release the "real" ending after a couple of months. Maybe that was intentional all along, or maybe they were forced into it because of the script leak or time constraints. Maybe they felt it would be better to release the game as is, then "finish" it through DLC rather than push back the release date by a couple of months (which I guarantee people would complain about more than these three endings).
Or maybe I'm just interpreting how I want to hear it, and maybe we're all really dreaming in some kind of EA-made Matrix where machines are feeding off our life force and all of this isn't real, and Mass Effect never existed!

Right. Sorry about that. This is Bioware's first official statement on it, so I was just hoping to inform the people here.
In the end it's as saurabhfzd said, it's all in your own personal experience.
Even I don't really like the ending, but I'm not going to destroy Casey Hudson's wikipedia page, take it to court, or swear off BioWare games for the rest of my life.
Shepard Breathes, remember? And Shepard can fix anything, even bad endings.
@Skyheart If you're right, that would mean EA has access to incredible technology... yet they can't even influence our minds to all love the ending! Yet another EA fail! My alter-ego approves!
