Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut Tuesday

The BioWare Blog announces the Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut will be released on Tuesday as free DLC for all owners of the action/RPG sequel, except most PS3 players, who will have to wait until July 4th:

The Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut is a downloadable content pack that will expand upon the events at the end of Mass Effect 3. Through additional cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes, the Extended Cut will include deeper insight to Commander Shepard’s journey based on player choices during the war against the Reapers. The Extended Cut will be available to download at no additional charge for Mass Effect 3 game owners starting on June 26 for PC and Xbox 360 customers worldwide. Playstation 3 customers in North America will be able to download the Extended Cut DLC on June 26 and the rest of the world on July 4.

There aren't any continuity errors though, that is the thing. And all the tearing down videos and post have had actual technical flaws, or missed the subtle information in the game.

But again, it is still ok if "you" do not like the ending, despite being wrong about not actually knowing what is going on. It is still an opinion.

The very justification for the Reapers is that synthetic life is inherently untrustworthy and murderous. So who better to entrust with saving the essence of whole races than... synthetic life?

The justification for ending the cycles is that the Crucible changes everything. The Crucible that the Catalyst apparently has complete control over and could simply render useless.

The justification for giving the Options to Shepard is... well, it's not actually provided. The Catalyst is all mysterious and enigmatic (unsatisfying in an ending). As is the justification for providing those specific options, including one that simply undoes all of the Catalyst's work.

And storytelling-wise, in addition to what he said, the Space Magic in the Synthesis ending is really out-of-place given the ridiculous strides the rest of the series took to overexplain and rationalize all of the science fiction elements.


Never mind some of the silly "continuity" errors that are brought up in some videos and explanations (especially "indoctrination theory"), pointing out that those make no sense and then using that to explain that there are no problems at all in ME3's ending is silly.
