I'm almost shocked, I actually expected more positivity around here.

A mate set up a 7-day trial account for me, and I'm actually enjoying it. Ok, so I've only played for about 3 hours, but it's a Star Wars fan's wet dream.
To be honest the game has a lot of potential, but comes up way, way too short. They should have made KOTOR3 instead of a mmo, which is really what it feels like. It's fun, but as soon as I topped out my sithsorc I didn't have much interest to play after the first couple of weeks.

.... Customizable interface. Macro function. Mouse over healing. Click healing on grids.
You realize that WoW had all of those in the closed beta right? Modifiable UI, macro functions, mouse over, click on healing via scripts and grids was the main reason why things like decursive were broken repeatedly. Decursive = pre-release mod, though it wasn't called that at the time.

Some more articles and forum threads on on ME3's endings:

1 , 2 , 3, 4 , 5 ,6, 7,8 ,9,10,11,12

In general? People not happy.

Likely they will sell this shit as DLC, -> "The Epilog DLC" .. now that'd be something to be really up in arms about.
$20 says that it would become the most pirated thing in history, and turn millions of paying customers into pirates because they're using it to protest the shitty ending as it stands.

Anyway, the M3 poll on 'give us a better ending' seems to have broken 31k votes with only 2% approving of the stock ending. The ending fiasco in itself has become a large enough clusterfuck that it's being picked up by major news outlets now. I've seen articles on forbes and msnbc about it.

Yeah it's safe to say Bioware severley misjudged the market. The last 10% or so of the game ws just terrible for so many reasons.

Indeed.

Though for people wanting to pick the game up. You can now get it on the PC for as low as $41 already, brand new.

Part of the DLC is indeed on the disc. You can pop open the .bin file and it's all right there. Editing two lines, and you can use them in the campaign. People are just as pissed off over that as they are about the ending of the game.

4000-5000 war rating... yeah, i don't see how you're going to get that without playing multiplayer.

Creston
I don't think it is. I'm nearly done and I've completed every quest, every side quest and everything that's available. Unless there's something fudged up in my ME/2 saves the best I can get is 3800 with the war rating of 50%

To be honest though, the ending suck, and such so bad that there's a serious backlash brewing over it. So take that as you will.

Yep total rating with every quest done and a paragon me1/2 playthrough, 3950. Best so far.

It's just sad that whoever did the story at Bioware thought the ending(s) worked. It would have been cliche as hell, sure, but they very easily could have done an "and everyone lives happily ever after".
The thing is most people don't seem to care about "happily ever after" rather they care about "what the fuck just happened" and "what's going on with the rest of the companions, and everything else that I just did in the last 3 games.

I am hoping against hope that the rumored +1 ending you get from repeating the campaign will be better, but it's likely going to be a waste of time on my part.
I'll let you know in 10 hours. Nice to be on a break for a change.

Yeah a I76 remake would be great, then again so would carmageddon(the first two) with all the blood, gore, carnage, and stupidity that goes along with it.

There are defiantly some fun and great stuff about it. But the entire thing is even more linear than ME2 and that's saying something. Sadly, someone at bioware needs a punch in the kittens over the ending. The entire thing feels like someone had a seizure and tacked it on. I'm guessing by the ~800 page thread at last look about the same thing, people agree. And that was 700 pages before the europeans and asians got their hands on the game.

Let me say 8.0 before the ending, 7.1ish after the ending.

So they have gone F2P?

Hope that works out for them.
If I remember right, they made more money off their sales on GoG than they did off of steam.

One of the comments on that link had an interesting idea. That EAware did this to help prevent piracy, since it almost forces you to play multiplayer.
That's great, but what about those who have no interest in multiplayer?

Let me just add that the gameplay is good, the ending fucking sucked, sucked so hard your eyes bleed. Someone needs to punch bioware in the kittens for it.

I have to agree. I played and enjoyed the heck out of the game for 6.5 years, quit just before the Dragon Soul patch and every change made and proposed since has simply enforced my decision to stop playing.
Pretty much that right there. Though I do have to say, the chance to do Ulduar was probably the best instance in the game once you got past the funkiness of the ground combat vehicles.

Now if they could only make the game like TBC without the screwed up talent trees again, I'd be back.
