Dude, you've been complaining for pages and pages.
Only reason I ever responded is you were blowing things way out of proportion (even if you'd actually played it).
I had hoped to quell your misunderstandings (and misinterpretations), but apparently that makes me a fanboy or some shit.
So don't say you've never complained (!)
Maybe I misunderstand what "getting worked up" means to english folk, but I just thought I called you an asshole in a very calm and collected manner.
You like Vanderloo Shepard ? That's wonderful AYB, I hope you've enjoyed playing as him as many many many other people have done so, I sincerely do.
But to say "I kind of feel that if some people are experiencing this bug, they got what they deserved. Live with the glitched appearance and move on" merits being called an asshole.
I have never complained about the ending.
My final comment on the ending is that I've seen plenty of people (and articles) who completely loved it, including our own Comedian Carl. Personally I thought it was good and that everyone who's throwing a shitstorm about it is doing so for all the wrong reasons. I'm disappointed that the developers are to compromise their own narrative, like if Polanski had reverted to the original ending of Chinatown because some people (*cough*curi) didn't like the one they got.
Chinatown is not a videogame, Chinatown is not an interactive role-playing experience, Polanski didn't promise we wouldn't have ABC endings for Chinatown, he didn't say our decisions would determine the way Chinatown ends, Polanski didn't work in a medium where the possibility of downloadable content and extended post-release developing time allows for changes to the experience, and subsequently, to the story.
In Mass Effect's case, why not keep to the promises and deliver an alternative ending ?
Or maybe something like Broken Steel.
What do you have to say about Broken Steel ? I guess nothing, since you like to ignore succesful precedents.
