BioWare co-founder Ray Muzyka made this statement today:
“I believe passionately that games are an art form, and that the power of our medium flows from our audience, who are deeply involved in how the story unfolds,” Muzyka wrote, “and who have the uncontested right to provide constructive criticism. At the same time, I also believe in and support the artistic choices made by the development team. The team and I have been thinking hard about how to best address the comments on ME3′s endings from players, while still maintaining the artistic integrity of the game.”
“Since the game launched, the team has been poring over everything they can find about reactions to the game – industry press, forums, Facebook, and Twitter, just to name a few,” he states. “The Mass Effect team, like other teams across the BioWare Label within EA, consists of passionate people who work hard for the love of creating experiences that excite and delight our fans. I’m honored to work with them because they have the courage and strength to respond to constructive feedback.”
The question I pose is, Isn’t it too late? Are you seriously going to to try and take more of my money to buy a DLC ending that should have been the ending to begin with? It is nice to know that BioWare is listening but for me the damage has already been done. They painted themselves into a corner with multiple plot holes and a less than awful ending.
