This doesn't bother me, because I'm pretty sure the only other DLC We're going to get is Multiplayer. . . The Multiplayer isn't terrible, but I'll be sad when 85% of the DLC we get is multiplayer.

He hasn't said one word publicly about it ever since the leak.

The writers are very generous with their praise of each others' accomplishments, especially when responding to tweets. If anyone else had been involved with the ending besides who we were told about in the leak, you can bet Patrick would have been the first one to say "So and so helped with the ending, too" If for no other reason than to give the other people credit for their work......whether we hate that work or not. He is a pretty humble guy, so if he had helped with the ending and not someone else, he would have admitted it. The fact that he mentions nobody, speaks volumes.

Also, neither Casey nor Mac have come out to say that they DIDN'T work on the ending......so that lends further validation.
I agree. I also think the Fact that Weekes Posted it before the Ending Controversy exploded and it got removed before the Ending Controversy exploded lends a lot of Credibility to it being true.

It doesn't bother me either. The point I was making was directed at Vindicator because he was suggesting that the Extended Cut DLC cutscenes might already be on the disk. They wouldn't be pushing their DLC schedule back to get this out by Summer if that were true.

And I can guarantee you that there will be more than just MP DLC later on. How successful any of that DLC will be is up in the air after the horrible ending, but after the success of LOTSB and the hints that Mike Gamble dropped on Twitter about 'keeping your ME3 saves and game disc for a long time', there is just no way that they aren't going to release some kind of campaign related DLC (although, it may not involve Shepard at all). My bet is eventually, they will release something that ties into whatever ME game they have planned next.

If the ending cutscenes were on disc then they would of been found already by PC players, like with the files found on LOTSB and Kasumi DLC from Mass Effect 2.

I would say if they did rush the ending they are just filling in some of the peices that they didn't have time to implement.

The Reapers are races that have come together to solve the problem of dark energy before it tears the galaxy apart. Shepard could either destroy the reapers (and the mass relays) or let humanity get harvested and hope that the ends justify the means.

It's not much of an improvement, and has all of the elements that people hate about the current endings. The Normandy crashing thing wasn't in it at least.

I hope you aren't suggesting that you have a modded console, because that kind of talk is a no-no around here. It means all of your achievements are invalid. Not throwing out an accusation, just want some clarification on what you mean by downloading their games, since you have to have a modded console to play them.

Maybe he plays it on PC. I have all the Mass Effects on PC but i still post here. I was going to refuse to buy the ending DLC but i was going to play it.

Also how does having a modded console makes your achievements null?

If he plays it on PC then he is already downloading games from Bioware. He clearly stated that he is going to start IF the DLC doesn't make sense. Why would he threaten to give them more business by legally downloading more games from Bioware, if they do something that makes him unhappy? That makes no sense.

What I mean with the achievements is that they wouldn't be recognized on this site as legit. Any achievement gained that goes against the TOS of MS (hacked, gamesave, modded system) is also considered against the X360A site policy of having your accomplishments recognized. Promoting any of that stuff can actually get you banned. Let me clarify that I am not threatening to narc on him, I was just giving him a heads up so he could cover his ass by 'ammending' his statement.

Well on PC you can get the disc and install it on your PC thought Origin works funny and you can actually download it to even if you have the disc.
