  • Here’s the Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut Ending Discussion. Take a look!

    This video was (again) far from planned but I tried to answer all questions from the previous video and include all my thoughts on the other endings. This second video is FULL of SPOILERS!!

    Bioware never stated that they would ‘change ‘ or ‘rewrite’ the ending; in various interviews, many members of the Bioware team have stated that, ‘The Extended Cut expands on the endings of Mass Effect 3 through additional scenes and epilogue sequences. It provides more of the answers and closure that players have been asking for. It gives a sense of what the future holds as a result of the decisions made throughout the series.’

    This being said, we all should have known what to expect: added scenes to enhance the ending we already have to achieve a sense of closure, and they have done this, remarkably well I feel. Bioware plugged the holes that needed plugging. If you were looking for a completely different ending, you’d best put your inner rage to bed, cause it’s going to be a long wait…

    I can personally die happy and having now completed the Synthesis ending I can’t help but feel the sense of closure that I so desperately needed.

    I have no reservations in saying that this, however, should have been done the first time around and it will be a long time before I can trust Casey Hudson or EA Games again…

    So what do you think of this DLC? Do you feel that both Bioware and the ending are unfixable? Perhaps you have not played it yet, and if so what are you expecting? Feel free to leave your thoughts and opinions on the Mass Effect series, the ending of the third instalment or anything else that comes to mind in the comment section below!

    Side note — the music playing in this video was purchased from the official Mass Effect 3 soundtrack on and belongs to the respective owners. These are (in the order they appear):
    1. An End Once and For All
    2. Rannoch
    3. Prothean Beacon
    4. In Praise of the Han River (B4-A3) — The Host, Byeong Wo

    To refresh your memory, here are the four different Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut endings.

    Hidden Refusal Ending: You didn’t see that coming…

    Destroy Ending: Whaaattt?!?!? Crazy…

    Control Ending: Who wants to Control them…?

    Synthesis Ending: Awesome! Where do I sign up…

    • Everything rebuilt, not EVERYONE. The Geth and Edi were all fully self aware individuals. Now they’re all dead, and the reaper tech that made them that way is gone. That’s like saying thay even though a million people died it’s okay because we can just replace them by giving birth to new babies, so nothing was lost.

      While I’m glad they did this, the endings still all seem so depressing. I mean its basically choose between losing shepard (control) or losing Edi and the geth (destroy). I think what they should have done is make the 4th ending depend on your war assets and if you have enough you could beat the reaper old fashioned style, I mean seriously why cant we at least have one happy ending.
