Dammit! Hellfire and damnation! While linking the other story, stumbled across this one. Sadly(for me, because i thoroughly enjoyed the endings and the direction the series seemed to be going- and yes, they said there would be more ME games) Bioware seems to be making DLC pointed towards "correcting" the endings. Sometimes you have to wish Bioware wasnt such a good company and would rather just tell fans to shut the hell up.
http://www.oxm.co.uk/39968/game-chan...dings-via-dlc/"Building on their research, Exec Producer Casey Hudson and the team are hard at work on a number of game content initiatives that will help answer the questions, providing more clarity for those seeking further closure to their journey. You'll hear more on this in April. We're working hard to maintain the right balance between the artistic integrity of the original story while addressing the fan feedback we've received. This is in addition to our existing plan to continue providing new Mass Effect content and new full games, so rest assured that your journey in the Mass Effect universe can, and will, continue."
In case you hadn't gotten the message yet, this is an unprecedented example of a developer kowtowing to a game's fanbase. The ramifications for the industry as a whole are massive. We'll doubtless have more to say about it shortly. In the meantime - what do you think?
The endings matched that pattern perfectly. You could get the specific issue you want, but it requires you to sacrifice something and it makes you live with the consequences.
Im going to be patient and wait it out. Im hoping that Bioware releases something that just "clarifies" the endings and doesnt rewrite them. I am annoyed and, like you, worried about them giving into what can basically amount to peer pressure. They seem to be willing to listen to the vocal minority and ignoring the silent(and i dare say mature) majority. It does set a bad precendent and could be used against them(and others) in the future. Not to mention this is all for not, because you simply cant please everyone.
New weekend challenge starting this friday. When they started these things 2 weekends ago, people got kind of blindsided and missed out on some good rewards. Ended up with the N7 Shotgun myself(damn thing is a shotgun/sniper rifle, hilariously overpowered). If i can catch them in time ill post them up so people have fair warning. Only for Xbox and PC at the moment, apparently Sony screwed the pooch

BioWare has announced free new multiplayer DLC for Mass Effect 3. Available on April 10th, the Resurgence Pack will offer two new maps known as Firebase Condor, which takes place on one of Palaven's moons, and Firebase Hydra, which brings players to an abandoned quarian colony.
In addition to the maps, new weapons, consumables and characters will also be unlockable via reinforcement packs in the game's multiplayer store. New weapons include the Striker Assault Rifle, Kishock Harpoon Gun and Geth Plasma SMG. The following new consumables will also be available:
- Strength Enhancer - Applies a melee damage boost for one mission
- Targeting VI - Applies a headshot damage boost for one mission
- Stabilization Module - Stabilizes weapons while firing and moving for one mission
- Shield Power Cells - Shortens shield recharge time for one mission
The pack will also feature six new characters, including the Asari Justicar Adept, Krogan Battlemaster Vanguard, Batarian Soldier, Batarian Sentinel, Geth Engineer and Geth Infiltrator. Interestingly, this list matches the DLC content that was leaked to Facebook last month.
