BioWare "Considering" Mass Effect 3 Ending Feedback

The Mass Effect Facebook Page has word that, contrary to previous indications, BioWare is actively looking at the negative backlash to the conclusion of Mass Effect 3 and the resolution of the Commander Shepard trilogy in the action/RPG series (which has apparently inspired FTC complaints). Here's word:

We are aware that there are concerns about a recent post from this account regarding the ending of the game. In this post it was stated that at this time we do not have plans to change the ending.

We would like to clarify that we are actively and seriously taking all player feedback into consideration and have ruled nothing out. At this time we are still collecting and considering your feedback and have not made a decision regarding requests to change the ending.

Your feedback and opinions are of the utmost importance to us. We apologize for any confusion this has caused. Our top priority regarding this discussion is to keep communication with you, our loyal fans, open and productive.

Even if Shepard somehow survived, I'm not sure how the series could continue after ME3, what with all the Mass Relays destroyed. The little snippet after the credits also seems to take place long after the events in the series, so presumably the entire cast is long dead (except for maybe Samarra and Liara).

Anyway, at this point, I don't think there's anything Bioware can do to fix the endings. What's done is done. A satisfying ending would be one in which you see the fates of your companions and their respective races, Fallout-style. I don't really see Bioware creating DLC just to provide that closure, however.

Interesting. What gave you the idea that it happens long after the events in the series?

And I agree. A Dragon Age style ending where they tell you what happens to the Krogan, what happens to Thessia, what happens to Garrus, etc, is really all most people want. Shepard dying seems fitting for the series, but I'd like to know that three games worth of choices led to something good for the Krogan. (who I always felt sorry for.)

But yeah, they won't fix it. They won't do shit. They'll keep saying they're "considering all options" while throwing out distractions, and in two months or so they'll announce that redoing the endings "is not feasible."

Sadly for them, it'll also be "not feasible" for a lot of fans to buy any more of their games, but Bioware's already shown that they don't give a shit about their oldest fans anyway. They'd much rather court the 14 year old ADD crowd.
