    I must admit I’m a bit surprised at the outrage.  At the end you guys said it was 98-99% good, 1-2% bad, and still you had said in their that your wife wouldn’t buy another BW game? 

    Sounds like sour grapes.  I can’t play ME3, but if it were 98% good, hell even if it were 90% good, I’d be happy and I’d plan on pre ordering the next game that studio made.  

    I feel sorry for you guys, as in a few years you’ll not be buying anyone’s games as the endings in the majority of these guys suck, you’re usually lucky to have something mediocre..

      Everything is going great, and you finally get to the end of your incredible journey that spanned over years of your life… only to find out that every single thing that you did was meaningless. It’s not how much was bad so much as it is WHAT was bad, and how bad that part was.

    This is one of the least informative/informed discussions of ME3 I’ve listened to to date. There was a lot wrong with how ME3 ended, but you guys (and McCurley especially) called out a lot of the worst reasons why people disliked the ending. ME3 is a game that needs time for people to understand, especially those that so deeply held affection for the first two games. Revisit this in a little bit and you might be surprised at how much the things you thought were super important do not bother you as much, but the actual flaws will come to the fore much more than before.

       Dude, I grasped the connotations of this ending immediately upon viewing it, because it’s yet another retread of classic tropes. It’s not deep, it’s not complicated, it’s rehashed greek drama where there’s no choice but to do as one is fated to do. It’s Aeschylus all over again. If you’d ever read a book in your life you’d understand that. Acting superior and insisting I revisit an ending I played through three times in an attempt to be fair to it just shows how poor your comprehension of literature really is.

    The very top of this page says “Wherein we talk too much about video games” but it should say “Wherein nitpixels fans wished you still talked too much about video games”.
