The title explains it all but this group is a fan group for the Video Games Mass Effect 1 (ME1), Mass Effect 2 (ME2), and Mass Effect 3 (ME3). This is the place to post images, videos and news about the Mass Effect Universe, comics and games.
I believe it is necessary for you guys to overlook this distracting debacle over the ending of Mass Effect 3 and unite to argue against EA and BioWare in common interest.

*Takes off sunglasses... and drops them on the ground in sheer shock and sadness* Mother of God.... :(
I'm never buying a Bioware or any EA product again until they all go under, I don't care anymore. Anyone up for a good ol'fashioned boycott? Maybe some other methods. If this is the end of Mass Effect and any games and content that will come after it from BioWare and the other devs working under EA, so be it. They're all scum to me, and give the gaming industry a bad name. EA can die and take all of them with it for all I care now. I'm just sick of hearing this stuff, and dealing with it all.
My friends and I have all had experience with poor customer service from EA. 2 of my friends on XBL for example had all their stats and progress on Battlefield Bad Company 2 MP completely wiped for some reason, EA didn't lift a finger. I don't even want to talk about my experience with SWTOR and we all know whats going on with ME3.
Probably our main concern are the millions of casual gamers who choose to remain ignorant of this stuff.
I'll be blunt. I grabbed a cracked copy of Mass Effect 3 rather than install Origin on my computer. So EA inconvenienced me, someone who has supported Bioware for years. Ah, but I'm grumbling. I really liked the system used for Mass Effect 2, where unless you had DLC, you didn't need to register or activate the game.
Repeat after me: Origin is cancer.
I wonder what's the next company that's gonna be ruined by EA :(. EA should either die out quietly and leave everyone alone or something unfortunate could happen trust me on this. Mess with the bull(people) and you'll get the ******* horns.
Interesting articles... to say the least lol. I have basically nothing to add to what has already been stated in these articles. I will say this however (and hate me all you want for it): I do not want this group to devolve into EA hating... That's not to say i'm defending them, it's just that we should try and make logical and even-handed outcomes, if that happens to be that it IS EA's fault then i don't mind that.
I'm no fan of the spywar-ish **** that Origin does, but it also does some things I actually found alright. Also, I'm not a great fan of EA or Bioware's practices, but also, EA actually produces decent PC ports. Just Cause 2 runs, at max, 15 FPS on my PC. Similar for Mafia 2. Dead Space 1-2 and the Mass Effect series (1-2, and 3's demo) ran beautifully on my machine, even MP.
I'm not saying it's wrong to be ****** at them for this but also... they occasionally have to do something right, otherwise they'd just be like Ubisoft and literally hinder their own titles by not thinking things through.
Also, I'm a bit more peeved with Kotaku and Bioware than EA. I mean, seriously, was one of the guys at Kotaku the relative of a person on the ME3 team? Even Movie Bob was less quick to jump to the defense of a corporation than they were.
Someone's a little high-strung...
Look, I've got no love for EA, but you don't have to go around insulting people who have a different opinion from you, no matter how flawed that opinion may appear. It's an opinion. Don't get your pants in a knot because someone thinks differently from you. Certainly no excuse for insults like the ones you're using, no matter how justified you feel your opinion is.
Just be a bit more open-minded and a bit less hostile. It doesn't matter if someone doesn't agree with you, unless they insult you directly, there is no reason to call them brain-dead, a fool, or an idiot, nor are they grounds for implying that said person has their head stuck up their arse with crap in their eyes.
Let's keep things civil here, please?
All that being said... good day!
P.S. I found that Mass Effect 2 was an excellent game, as was Mass Effect 1. Mass Effect 3 was equally impressive, save the ending. Solid story, hard decisions, the impact of your choices in previous games, and other things, including the hundreds of references littered throughout. I loved the experience, aside from the ending, but I have fingers crossed that BioWare will change it.
Please note that this is my opinion. Don't insult me for it.
I'll send some pitchforks and shotguns and Molotovs
