Agree. This game has frozen on me four times and I'm not through the first area. A five year wait brings high expectations, and nothing lives up to hype like that. But I kind of thought not crashing...

An end should be an end. Closure can occur while still leaving room to ponder. The big problem with the end is the plot holes. So suddenly we can blow up mass relays? And yes, the Normandy has an FTL...

Only problems with giving us the "real" ending through DLC are the people who don't have internet connections - which continues to increase with the worldwide recession - and the point in that recent...

Yeah, more than likely. I went for the synthesis ending because of EDI and the Geth. I didn't like it, but I didn't like the idea of killing EDI or a whole race of synthetics just to stop the...

Oh, I see. But I think the point is the Reapers invented them.

I think it has to do with the idea destroying a mass relay destroys the star system it's in. I'm not sure they could alter the relays to kill the Reapers since the relays are essentially Reaper tech.

Probable I'll give you. It all seems absolutely PLAUSIBLE, either way. That's not evidence, though. Even great writers make mistakes. I'm in the "wait-and-see" camp. If this is indoctrination and...

I think the Catalyst said it controlled the Reapers. Or at least implied it. I'm not saying the Reapers wouldn't continue to do what they were doing, only that destroying the leader might have...

A couple things about the end **SPOILERS**

Well, if it's sloppy writing, it's sloppy writing. A great series ends with a thud.

But I still can't help wondering: why not a fourth choice? If the Catalyst controls the Reapers and the Citadel...

@Fethennour: If you make those vids please post a link for the rest of us! I still haven't gone back to try this one yet. I agree with you, though. It's insanely difficult.

It's definitely a test of perseverance. I probably tried at least over two dozen times. I'll give your solution a go once I've decided to dive back in! Thanks!

Not certain whether Bones of Ishtar or the Darkness levels are spoilers. Anyway, I have gone through the Darkness level in Chapter 10 at least a dozen times. I can't seem to locate the Bones...

Yeah, I'll give you the inflation logic was pretty flawed. I just don't see there's any evidence these devs are pushing prices up out of simple greed. Perhaps they think charging an extra 400 points...

This actually gives evidence for my point. We the gamers are at fault they don't make better money from this. We think these games aren't worth 1200 points so we don't download the trial. If more of...
