Shocknews.com

As many of you have probably heard, the infamous Mass Effect 3 did not exactly go as expected. Specifically, I am referring to the story’s ending. If you are a fan of the game or have been on any gaming forums recently, you would know that players of the game were very disappointed with the ending. Without spoiling the game, I will just say that the decisions you make throughout the story have practically no effect on the outcome of the game.

Angry fans ended up making online petitions requesting that BioWare, the creators of the game, change the ending. Although, at the time, it seemed as if this was just a waste of time, as it turns out BioWare may actually be considering changing the ending. They released a statement saying that they were seriously considering their fans concerns and that they will look into make a change to the ending.

I think that it is incredible that the fans were actually able to sway the decision of a huge company such as Bioware. It really shows that the power is in the consumer’s hands and not the company’s. I don’t really have an opinion on the games ending as I have only spent a small amount of time playing the game, but I am very interested in following this story and seeing what comes out of it.

So tell me what you guys thought of Mass Effect 3’s ending? Did you mind the way the story concluded or are you one of the thousands of gamers who added their name to an online petition requesting that Bioware change the game? Let me know in a comment!

Mass Effect the Movie??

I was quickly scrolling through game related news, when I stumbled upon something extremely interesting. The massively popular video game series Mass Effect is being turned into a feature length film. Although this is not the first popular game to take this route, it may be the first to actually succeed. When Bungie attempted to convert Halo into a feature film it was a complete failure. Although they released intriguing teasers for the movie, it was never finished due to money issues and it left many fans hanging.

In this case, Mass Effect seems to have more funding, better special effects and all around a more professional feel. The movie will be staring Commander Shephard’s male voice actor, Mark Meer, and will follow him on his quest to take down the story’s main villain, Saren Arterius. The move definitely seems like something worth checking out. Although I have never been a huge fan of Mass Effect games, I think it will be interesting to see how this movie turns out.

What is your opinion on this release? Do you think it will be good for the Mass Effect series, or will it just bring down the legitimacy of the game? Comment and let me know if you’re going to watch it when it is released!
