Mass Effect 3 And Out

Finished off Mass Effect 3 this afternoon, got my ending and so on. Frankly, I’m kind of overwhelmed by the “meh” of it all. I was totally one of those people who thought that all the disgruntled gamers were being precious about not getting a “good” ending, but hadn’t realised that by good they didn’t necessarily mean they wanted something happier, but rather wanted something that wasn’t entirely mediocre. So, bit of a shame given that the series did have a handful of actually interesting decisions and more instances of decent scripting than your average game. And, as has been said before, holy shit it’s crass that the game is like “don’t forget the DLC!” at the end and then rewinds your entire decision-making process to plunk you back before the final mission stuff begins. Ah, well, c’est la vie, right? My FemShep was true to form for most of the games, and that’ll do me fine.
