The only thing you are going to accomplish with complaining about EA and the ending of ME3 is getting them to release yet another DLC to be able to change the outcome, or have the ending change.

Basically everyone got EAed once again.

An ending DLC, amongst other problems, would involve getting all of the voice actors back in. That would be expensive. They'd probably lose money if they sold it for the typical DLC price, no matter how many people bought it. That's one of the reasons I doubt it'll happen.

Have you ever noticed that the only people with real dialogue in any of the story DLC for ME2 were Shepard and the minor characters said DLC introduced? None of the squad members got any new dialogue, because of how expensive it would be to get their actors in.

So either there won't be an ending DLC, or it'll be the most expensive DLC to date for any game.

Now if they made a full expansion pack, they could sell it for enough money to get all of the voice actors back and make a profit with an extra ending. Because even in the games industry, it comes down to profit.

But what if they already did make the DLC and are just waiting to release them at the right time to get maximum $$ ?

Say what you want about what BioWare has become under EA control, but that's just paranoid.

If they think the backlash over the endings is bad, they know full well how much of their fan base - and ultimately money - they'd lose with that stunt.

I don't think EA cares for their "fan base". They just want to reach a maximum of people on this planet and get the most profit out of it.

I don't think EA cares one bit about what ME3 stands for, or even what it's contents are.
EA's board of directors just says "yes" to the ideas if the profit margin is through the roof.
There's no doubt about that at all.

I think it's a shame BioWare ended up working with/under EA, but it was inevitable. EA has the money and will keep sucking up all proper gamedeveloper companies until somehow they go bankrupt.

I agree with what you say about EA, all the way, but BioWare still cares. Even under EA they have some autonomy still. BW have to get approval from EA for what they do, I think, but EA can't directly tell BW what to do or control content once they're doing it.

It is a shame BW is under EA, but I still believe BW have their fans at heart. Despite the widely varying opinions on the endings, they were written not out of spite, but because they honestly wrote what they wanted the ending to be.

I know it's not DLC related, but I just have to say...

"That was for Thane, you son of a *****."

Um oh the note of EA not caring. Well I will point you to C&C 4. They destroyed that game and sales crashed. They where locking threads left right and center when people complained. They got there money from a great Franchise but killed it at the end! I will never Forgive those glorified mother holes for what they did!

If EA do not make money from it they will not do it! But then again if they did do an alt ending DLC I think they will charge like £20 for it. Knowing people will probably pay for it. Worst thing is I would pay it lol
