Bioware ripped me off first w/ Dragon Age 2. Then I got ripped off buying ID's Rage. Then I got ripped off again w/ this game by buying 80 dollar collector edition.

What I learned so far:
1. Don't trust what developers say in a tech interview, no matter how awesome it may sound (RAGE TECH DEMO w/ John Carmack).
2. Developers use hype to sell their next product that are 10 times smaller and less 'content' friendly than their previous one (DA 2).
3. Developers use HYPE (once again) to sell a game that you wish would be longer, more in-depth, and more detailed. (Bioware's ME3).
Another one would be Neverwinter Nights 2 (compared to NW1, this one is crappy.)

I will not buy any more Bioware product unless the game comes out, I read 20-30 reviews to filter out the general good and bad; then watch 20-30 videos on YT to see what it really has, THEN I'll decide if it is worth it.

The trick they pull of now a days are:
- High quality CG cutscenes to get your blood pumping going faster.
- Lots of trailers to show what to expect (but on the contrary, not even much)
- Put DLC as separate items (which are no more than few MG or KB in size) and then charge you 10-20 bucks for that in so called 'collector's edition' crap.

If Bioware needs to know something to fix their ***t, then they need to do 2 things:

1. Don't work w/ EA (EA is famous for f-ing up developers' personal work. They destoryed Westwood, BullFrog and few other good studios in this way).
2. Learn from European developers like CDPROJEKT (yeah Witcher is an RPG and as such, it is billion times better than ME trilogy).

Overall, I think the whole game industry is dying here b/c there are too many retards who buy whatever the devs make and throw at them w/o looking in-depth at the contents (yeah, F**ktivision, I'm talking about you now).

These the the summary I've come up w/ after playing ME3 and other games and watching the gaming industry trend for the last few years.

I say, be patient, let the game come and calmly decide what to buy or not.

Would not call The Witcher series better then the Mass effect trilogy, but it is a really good game series as well, and they did release dlc for there game for free, but they also needed to do something to bring back people to the game due to the combat issues and very few rigs where witcher 2 ran flawlessly on from the get go, so they made some dlc content.

Mass effect 3 was good in my book, none of that end credits slap me over the head with choices i made or a pat on the back, you see Joker escapeing with the normandy that is the one thing i found odd, so im inclined to believe the indoctrination theory, and the part where you see shepard breath heavily and it cuts off might be when he snaps out if it.

Hope they release a DLC in a few weeks or a patch saying what did you think we would make such an ending(wishfull thinking i know), but i dont hate bioware for this ending because the purpose of my Shepard was too save the galaxy from the reapers and i did that, but i did like the ending where the old man on the planet where Joker crashed on tells the child about the legendary Shepard .

Here's my hope. It's a BIG hope, but still that's part of what the franchise keeps talking about.

I'm sure some have heard of the 'indoctrination' story, and it actually makes a lot of sense. If you have enough readyness, AND you choose the supposed 'red' option at the end, you get a brief reveal of Shepard alive at the end. But look carefully at the video. There's concrete everywhere. Would there be concrete on a fancy city-station? Not to mention the whole thing EXPLODED. Popular theories suggest that the scene is of Shepard's body STILL IN LONDON. Also, the supposed 'red'(renegade) ending was on the right side of the screen, same as normally paragon choices (psychout???).

The rest of the theory is that what happens on the citadel is actually an indoctrination attempt on Shepard. The 'Red' choice reveals this because the Reapers don't want you to choose that one. Also, HOW would the citadel know about the image of the little boy unless it was somehow in Shepard's head?

From a fiscal standpoint, this would allow EA to pump out a few more DLC's with more fleshed out endings. They recieve funds from the initial "HOLY POOP IT'S THE FINAL MASS EFFECT!!!! and then boat loads more from individual DLC's. Bioware has a history of providing fleshed out endings that explore a player's choices and how they affect a universe, you know (HOPE) that Bioware wants to deliver on this aspect, that's been their MO for years! EA gets more money, fans eventually get their closure, and Bio can say they mind f'd everyone into thinking that was the end of it all.

GOD I hope this is what they're thinking. It'd be nice to see some blue/Miranda baby DLC, and more about the Rachni, and CLOSURE.

But thats the thing. Maybe Shep dose not die from the Indoc but is changed slowly insdie into a human Reaper even with all the reapers dead and he then slowly takes control of everyone else etc etc.

Do you really want a Reaper controlled bear with a Chainsaw running around?

Would you rather have a Reaper in a pink tutu controlling Shepard and wanting to take him home to meet his mother?

I was thinking about this earlier - the ending, not Reapers in pink tutu's - and I figured that if you go with the Destroy option, you'll be killing far more than EDI and the Geth. The Guardian says that anything synthetic will die, including Shepard because of all the cybernetics keeping him alive.

I imagine by that point in the future there's a whole lot of people in the Galaxy with cybernetics helping keep them alive - most probably won't be as extensive as Shep, but still - so you'll basically be condemning them to death too.

Save the Galaxy by becoming the worst war criminal in the history of any civilization.

I'd rather be indoctrinated to be honest.
