None of them, what's the point? Nothing you do affects the outcome. Youtube the video if you must see it. Why pay 10-15 bucks for 1-2 hours of content you are only going to go through once? It's absurd. Nothing you do affects the outcome, that renders all choices preceding the outcome meaningless.


What's the point in ever buying DLC for any game then? Operation: Anchorage and The Pitt didn't change the ending of Fallout 3, but that doesn't change the fact that they were enjoyable pieces of the game and the goodies from each of them were quite nice.

It would be really nice if people quit their ******** about the ending. It's ridiculous. I can agree that a $15 price tag for a DLC is steep, but arguing that it's worthless because it doesn't change the ending is absurd.


Broken Steel can change the ending though. Also, to be on topic, anyone know the details about the casino that gets added? I know from the reveal that you seem to be able to win credits there but has there been anything like payouts hinted at yet or are they not going to mention it before the release?

More credits really does seem a bit pointless. By the time you're finished with the citadel coup you're already laden with more credits than you care to use, at least in all three of my playthroughs.

I actually kind of wish upgrading weapons and armour costs more than it does, so it makes you choose what you need.

"I could care less" means you care right now.
The proper phrase is "I couldn't care less."

Look to me I like the ending AS IS to me the ending was ok but not great but it was ok cause I understood what it represented & why it did the way it did.

Me, I would much rather want a more expanded story with new stories, new characters, new off world locations such as they did with Levithan not a Central HUB but more off world never before seen locales such as the ELCOR Homeworld, The Turian homeworld the moon DOSENT COUNT. The Volus Homeworld why was these never shown or added into DLC episodes.

What is there Society Like, what does there Civilzations look like, I would buy DLCs just to see those Homeworlds this is like watching a SciFi series like Babylon 5 & not learning about the Ancients, The Vorlons or the Shadows or Star Trek & its races if you arent going to show them then why do you even mention them.

That is one of the few things that pissed me off in the Mass Effect Triliogy we didnt get to see many of the other races Homeworlds.

Hopefully the future Mass Effect without Shepard will show these places that were never seen in the Shepard Trilogy I would play anygame without Shepard just to see more of the Universe.

Dont get me wrong I love the game I just wish we got to see more, learn more, & do more but I guess they are saving that for future installments.

It better not be a stupid MMO FPS such as DESTINY or DEFIANCE or I will drop Bioware then & there.

It's somewhat annoying to me that people are still talking about the ending after like a year later. was it really that big a deal? at what point do you decide to move on? some just can't let go i guess.


Yeah it was.I mean look at Superman 64 you mention that name and you'll hear everyone and their grandmother say it sucks.Mass Effect has sadly joined the club.


No, it hasn't. And your phone sucks at formatting and posting.

Look who hasn't played Superman 64. Go play it and tell me ME3 is on that level, because it isn't.

There is this weird thing called fun, oddly enough it can found in playing videogames.

It still doesn't change the sh** ending.
They're practically feeding the flames here; essentially adding more emotional build up with this DLC, then back to square one with the unsatisfying plot hole filled ending.
I totally understand why alot of fans are again disappointed, this final DLC doesn't seem as if its going to solve any of the problems concerning the ending.

Now, if this was a postgame DLC, it'd make alot more sense, but no, I don't believe it is.
Who knows?
Bioware has lied to us before, so there could be more to the ending.

You need to learn how to compare apples to apples. The Mass Effect series is predicated on the fact that you make important choices and that those choices MATTER. Fallout 3 doesn't claim the same. Also you used a terrible example as Fallout 3 is one game where devs listened to fan feedback and changed the ending. Let's forgive inept analogies though and use Skyrim instead.

I bought all the DLC for Skyrim, none of it changes the ending, Why? It doesn't need to, that isn't its purpose. It's content that I want to experience. Skyrim isn't a game that prides itself on giving you choices that matter. Mass Effect was supposed to be that game. Skyrim prides itself on a massive open world, so DLC needs to facilitate that. It does. It adds new landscapes. Mission accomplished.

Mass Effect DLC can't do that because the ending renders all choices pointless. Nothing matters, none of it. Make some fantastic choice in the DLC? If it doesn't have an immediate impact right then and there, then it doesn't matter. None of them make immediate sweeping changes, and none of them effect the ending, thusly they are all pointless and moot.

I'm fine with the ending now that we have EC and Leviathan. After all, the whole of Mass Effect 3 is the conclusion, even if it is a weaker ending than I'd like to see. The conclusion's ending is just the conclusion of the Reapers. We already saw the conclusion of the Krogan/Turian/Salarian problem, we already saw the end of the Geth/Quarian problem, etc.

Having said that, it does suck how we don't actually see the war assets in action during Priority: Earth (ie seeing Krogan and Rachni fighting alongside each other on earth, seeing the Quarian and Geth fleets working together from space, etc), and sure I would have liked for there to be a happy ending where Shepard survives and we see him get a hero's welcome, but Extended Cut fixed most of my problems with the Ending of the conclusion (ME3) and Leviathan fixed most of the rest (including answering "where did you come from in the first place, catalyst?"). People say your choices don't matter in the end, but I disagree. They DO matter, they just matter earlier in the conclusion (the conclusion being the whole of ME3) than its ending (one great example IMO is Conrad Verner).
