Sorry about the prolonged absence, things have been a little crazy in my personal life as the end of the semester drew closer, but I wanted to go ahead an pop by with a few updates just to make sure you all know I’m still alive.
First off, great job everyone! Your continued support has shown Bioware just how dedicated we are and has prompted them to take action! Ending DLC has been promised, and I know I won’t be the only one eagerly awaiting the release!
Second, an official update on the Facebook page likes which is now a whopping 64,885. That right there is pretty decent number, certainly one that will make sure Bioware know how dedicated a large number of their fans are to the cause.
And as far as the third update goes, I mostly just wanted to post a reminder. This movement never was, and never will be intended to be a conduit for negativity. We need to represent our movement with maturity and integrity. Lots of people thing very critically of the Retake Mass Effect movement as it is, and I don’t want to see anyone giving them any reasons to do so. We can discuss any topic or argument with a calm and level approach. There’s no need for the fans on opposing sides to be at each other’s throats over this, whether they support Retake Mass Effect or not.
Anyway, that’s it for now. Thank you for your continued support, despite my disappearance. Keep up the good fight, and remember, play nice. c:
Hi, not sure if the movement has seen this clip, but it compares all the unique endings of ME3
I’m not sure if tumblr is aware of this video, but I think the presenter Jeremy Jahns does a great job at voicing the primary concerns regarding the ending.
Good luck with the campaign, and let’s hold the line!
alphabetagammadelta asked: I support this. And don't have much else to say, i guess. The endings were just like someone swapped our endings with some random B-movie endings. HOLD THE LINE.
Hey, Bioware may have released an official statement, but it doesn’t mean this battle’s done yet!
There’s a thread on the BSN that provides a full breakdown of the PR damage control situation at Bioware and how the retake movement can best move forward. Thought I might as well spread this thread around for those who haven’t read this yet.
This topic has been a boon for me, and for others, in that several well-spoken people have taken great efforts to help the discontent masses understand the inner workings of Bioware’s PR moves. They also continue to hold the line and offer ideas as to how we can continue to do so through civil protest and intellectual discourse and debate.
If you have time to spare, at least take a look at the first posting (which, I warn you all, has grown larger and larger within a span of days) and see for yourself what has been going on!
Hold the Line, my friends! The Movement continues unabated!
heyheyheytheendisnear asked: This page gives me hope. Frankly I hope bioware jumps on this "It was all a hallucination" thing and uses that to retcon us a better ending. There's no way to build on the ending they have, on any of them. It has to be undone.
Mass Effect’s Producer Promises ‘We’ll Keep Listening’, and New Content that Brings ‘Closure’ -
Yes!Great work guys! Bioware has responded to our outcry and has officially declared that more endings will be given to fans! Read the article and go perfect your Shepard play-through, because there’s more coming!
uninhibitedandunrepentant asked: Apparently there's a rumour about DLC in April called 'the truth' ... I'm too scared to hope...
As far as rumors go, I’ll believe it when I see evidence, but I am starting to become mildly suspicious about Bioware and their evasive answers to fan questions.
Honestly guys, right now I’m pretty torn. On one hand, if the DLC ending was already in planning and primed for April release, I’m ecstatic that I’ll get to see my favorite video game trilogy through to a satisfying ending. On the other, I would feel pretty cheated and betrayed that Bioware withheld said ending, planning to release it to fans later. The DLC would most likely cost money, and I feel that such a deceptive marketing tactic is underhanded and selfish. Giving your customers an unsatisfying ending so you can force them to shell out money for a logical conclusion later…. If it’s true I honestly don’t think I’ll ever be able to view Bioware as a company of integrity ever again. And on yet another hand (yes that’s three, count ‘em) if they do have ending DLC, and the release it for free, I’ll probably feel like a jerk for doubting them in the first place. It’s all a big mess of confusions and emotions for me, really.
But, once again, since there is no official confirmation I will remain neuteral in the matter and continue to run this blog without bias. As of now the only thing I know is that fans are still crying out for closure, and I will do my best to make sure Bioware hears them.
And maybe if we’re lucky, and Bioware does release “The Truth” in April, seeing how we Bioware fans unite when we’re upset may encourage them to make this one ‘on the house’, or so to speak.
