  • It’s no secret that I didn’t like the Mass Effect 3 ending. As one of the older, more loyal fans to the series, I felt seriously short changed. I had come to expect quite a lot from Bioware who, in my oppinion, had not failed to deliver (we’ll ignore Dragon Age 2 shall we…) in the days leading up to the release of Mass Effect 3. Mass Effect 2, with its function that allowed you to play either paragon or renegade and its manner of providing you with the direct consequences of your wrong decisions (sending Tali into the vents for instance vs sending Thane) had showed me that Bioware knew what they doing and had the ability to anticipate […]

This is after scores of fans had campaigned to Bioware, asking them to use ‘FemShep’ as she is fondly called in their marketing for the first game. Officially, Bioware declared that only about 18% of all gamers play as the female protagonist voiced by Jennifer Hale (though I still believe those statistics are wrong) and probably […]
