Ok I'm just curious where the hell is Bioware's response to all of this backlash.

And whether you liked the ending or not, you can't ignore the 300+ pages on their own forums complaining about the ending.

Personally I feel that Bioware's lack of comment, even if the "clear up" some confusion shows they really don't care.
Bioware has got your money and now "were taking the ball and leaving".

Kind of typical for any EA affiliated company though.

Take the day one DLC rip off.
"No we would never take anything out of the core gameplay"

Yet the DLC was there off the Disc.

Can you honestly say that they've ignored you all and have "taken your money and ran"?

How do you know they're not working on something right this second? Are you omniscient and can see into the BioWare studios? Making public statements and informing us of situations is their choice to do so, one they don't have to do. They don't have to tell us a damn thing until they're ready to.

Just sit yourself down and be patient. Constant nagging isn't going to make anything go faster. People have made their complaints and I'm sure they've been noted. If they're going to do something about it, they will do. If they're not, they're not. Adding more posts won't change that.

As for the DLC on the disc, it was framework. There has to be existing framework for DLC to work and be integrated seamlessly into the game. Or do you just think you download new files and they magically meld with the existing content?

Post-Day-One DLC will include existing files which have been modified to include new content. If you know you're going to have Day-One DLC, you may as well include those modified framework files on the disc and save some space on the download.

So why WITHOUT download anything extra you change one line in the Coalesced Utility you can get the DLC character working.

I don't own the DLC, I never bought the pack that included it, but I follow the instruction and now I have him, plus all dialog during missions.
Yes I don't have the From Ashes Mission to get him, but he is there and usable.

All I can figure is that the Mission itself was downloaded, but the character was already in the game.

But that kinda proves the DLC was already there and never designed after ME3 going gold.

As for the ending, I have no doubt they are planing on milking the game for everything they cane with DLC, just tell the fans something, not sit their and ignore thousands of loyal fans.

I never said they did take the money and run, I said it FEELS like they did..
But I did actually say "take the ball and leaving".

It was just a personal statement how I felt, and it seems a lot of other people felt. Not you personally Skyheart.

We all have our different feelings and thoughts on this topic, so all input is taken on board.

Apologies if I sounded like I took what you said personally, I didn't. I was just being general. Or tried to be.

You may be able to "activate" Javik, and use him on missions, but he'll just be basically a shell. That's the framework I was talking about. The nearly 600MB extra you download when you buy/activate it is the mission and his "personality" so to speak.

Javik and his mission weren't designed after the game went Gold. That's how a lot of Day-One DLC is made, but the N7 edition has been advertised as having an extra character and mission since it was available for pre-order some time last year. So that'll be why some of the files are on the disc. Like I said - easier to leave some of it there if it's already made, and make the download smaller so people can get into it quicker.

In terms of the ending, I wonder why only Joker, Anderson and Liara get "flashbacks"... what about everyone else? I mean, at the very least Tali and Garrus have been with you since the beginning. Don't get me wrong, I like those three... but what makes them special over the rest? Apart from Anderson dying of course.

I've never been really bothered about the day 1 DLC, its like Day one patches. Annoying but /care.

The endings.. I'm getting over it. Sure I can barely play the game now without feeling hopeless after 15 minutes, but the reality is, more than likely, they don't give a rat's behind.

Having seen the endings, I can understand the complaints, but as I mentioned, I expected a lot of it so I'm happy with them.

I only reiterate that point so that I can point out my own gripe with the endings.

Personally, I categorize the Synthesis ending as Good, and Destroy as Bad. Yet with the good ending Shep dies, and with the bad ending he can live with the right amount of EMS. It just seems seriously backwards to me. Like if ME2 had an ending where your entire squad survives the suicide mission but Shep dies.

Lol when they showed up in the normandy, to me it felt like:

"Guys, shepard got hit with the ray, I don't see him/her anymore, I think he/she is dead... Damn..."

"Last to the normandy is a Yagh! Bug out time!!!!"
