[quote="Delta"]Just for the sake of argument, here's an article that takes the opposite angle. Happy.

That article makes some good points, and also some slightly less sturdy ones that seem to be partially motivated by a simple incandescent ire for the ending in general — an attempt to leave no trace of greenery unscorched. XD I feel the one I posted above does the same, but the other way round; seems there's little middle ground as of yet. Nevertheless, I quite like PA's direct reply to the Gamefront article, in its simplicity and scattered use of explicit language: http://penny-arcade.com/2012/03/14/mass-effect-3-ending-spoiler-warning


My own feelings on the subject aren't so well defined yet; I'm trying to suss out what Bioware was trying to do with the ending — clearly they didn't just come in to work one day with their brains on back-to-front. Happy. I guess I'll find out if / when they issue a public statement on the matter.

I don't know if this will cheer up people from the comotion of the *ending* but I came up with an intresting funny (personaly). Anywho, I'm watching Tar as he was playing his Krogan character, rushing in head first killing everything he slams or headbutts into submission. At one point, he faced an Assualt Trooper (or some other enemy that wasen't an atlas or had a sheld) headbutted him and quickly shot him. I said: "Headshot!" Tar didn't get it at first but when I explained himself and I laughed. Then I said: "That would be a Krogans idea of a headshot." You lot may not find this hillarious but it certainly made my day all the more better. ^^'

Discovered today that drell are USELESS vanguards if you're up against the reapers. You're fast, but you're unforgivably delicate.

Well, I intend on getting the Commendation pack today from the in game event, meaning that we need to beat the reapers on a silver difficulty or higher. If we do it, we get a random N7 weapon, which I hear are pretty overpowered.

Anyone is welcome to join me.

Is the N7 weapons the best things you can get? Also I didn't even know about this event in the first place. :/

N7 weapons are supposedly one of the most powerful sets of weapons in the game, and by beating the reapers on silver or higher in multiplayer, you will get a pack that contains a random N7 weapon, which will be the only one you will get.

Meaning if I get the sniper rifle. I'm going to go and burn down EA headquaters.

Details in this article: http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/03/16/mass-effect-3-multiplayer-data-released-weekend-event-awards-unique-item-pack-for-reaper-genocide/

Delta and I have already done it, but I'll be available to help anyone else out today if they need it. Origin ID is "GreyMort"

Nah... I'm happy as it is. It's just a game...
Though, if BioWare doesn't fix the ending I'll personally fly over the atlantic just to punch EA's director in the face. And probably some other people on the way there. O_o

"Congratulations! As a reward for raising up two classes to level twenty, you recieve a...

N7 VALIANT UPGRADE.

I swear to god, bioware is trolling me. What is a vangaurd / Sentinal main supposed to do with a sniper rifle?

Did you guys get new N7 weapons, or did you only get upgrades of the one you currently own? I'd like to find out.

Also, apparently another operation hits this weekend, so you might want to grind your characters up again.

So far I only appear to have the Victory Pack, though I definitely promoted two of my classes over the weekend — for now I'll hold onto the hope that the Commendation Packs are not all being distributed simultaneously. razz

The Bioware blog says the rest of the commendation packs will unlock over the course of today, so you should be getting it pretty soon.
