    Yeah the current ending adds absolute zero closure to this massive universe and to all those of Shepards crew from ME1-ME3.

    It´s absolutely stupid to only show a chrash landed normandy and then immediatly switch to the credits. What about my other friends? How are they doing? How is the galaxy in general doing after the war was over?

    So many cliffhangers and plotholes ....

    Random question. Who do you guys think should play Commander Shepard in the movie? It is going to be live action right?

    I personally have no idea. I hope it's not someone to well established but still has some acting skills. I also hope the movie is not a complete failure lol. All the aliens(in combat too even) are going to be pretty hard to pull off well without serious $$$ invested.

    Well I hope that it will be a FemShep movie. Never liked the male Shepard to be honest

    Nah I have no clue who would play him/her at all.

    Maybe they're making a male and female Shepard version!? That'd be smashing.

    Seriously though, I have absolutely no idea. I'm not too familiar with newer actors.

    Male: Alex O'Loughlin or David Boreanaz

    Female: Milla Jovovich or Scarlett Johansson

    The only thing that makes me think it won't be a femshep is the romance and that there is only Kaidan/Ashley and Liara. Liara, although not male or female looks and acts female. Obviously there's going to be some love triangle friction for some inner conflict. They could go the riskier route and go with femshep and Liara but I doubt they will for fear of ignorant people preaching OMG lesbian alien relationship. We will see though.

    Plus male Shepard has been the posterboy for the series the entire time, whereas femshep only got thrown in for ME3 and even then, she takes a back seat to male Shepard. Would be nice if they did femshep instead, though. I've always liked her more. lol

    Another thing I was wondering:

    Do you remember the Hades cannon on earth that looked like a Destroyer?



    How on earth can we destroy it with a M-920 Cain? The weapon that couldn't take down an YMIR mech in ME2 is powerful enough to destroy a Reaper now? What?!

    With one single shot ! LOL

    Edit: I think that this cannon has shields like a reaper too so how on earth can a Cain destroy it?

    FemShep was playable since ME1 !! I honestly don´t like the Male on at all.

    Space magic, obviously.


    But no I think the shot from the Cain went INSIDE the open cannon. Perhaps the Reapers' shields had to be down for it to fire?

    I've always liked FemShep more too. I really like Jennifer Hale's voice acting. She's incredibly skilled and she manages to get such a wide arrange of emotions to each line I just absolutely adore FemShep because of that. Male Shepy's lines just seem a bit bland compared to female Shepy. One of the reasons why I haven't done a male Shepy before this one.

    And I again agree with Duncan. Didn't the romance scene with Liara on ME1 cause a huge uproar all over the place or am I confusing it with some other game? I was still a wee little girl so I didn't pay too much attention to it around the time it was relevant. If they chose to go with female Shepard and do a love triangle between Shepy, Liara and Kaidan there might be the same kind of uproar again.

    Playable, but she wasn't the one shown on the ads and such for the game.

    That´s true. She was only shown on the game box and in adds in ME3.

    I am agreeing with Aveline. FemShep has a way better voice Actress and sounds and acts much better than the male counterpart.

    MaleShep was always the "official" Shepard however.

    When my brother was playing ME2 for the first time and I asked can you do a female to play with he just stated "No, you can't". So even though he was playing it he didn't realise you could do a female. You see male Shepy on the adds, on the cover of the game... No wonder really. Or maybe my brother just isn't too observant.

    Oh, I totally agree with you two on that as well. Jennifer Hale always has so much more emotion in her voice. Mark Meer always sounded so dull and flat to me.

    Well if you get the missile inside it's armor it's going to do some real serious damage. Like the death star, or the asteroid in Armageddon lol. Hit it on the outside and it's just a scratch.

    As to why the shields let it in, like Moontalon said, space magic.

    Maybe Reaper Kinectic barriers are tight to the armor to be more efficient(like another set of armor), as opposed to a bubble like we have and use on our ships and troops. So a missile can maneuver in. /shrug

    Like I said, male Shepard has been their poster boy up until ME3.

    People care less about Shepard and even the galaxy as a whole, and more about Shepard's interaction with his crew. You need to have closure in that aspect in an RPG game that revolves around these characters. I was hoping KOTOR2 taught that lesson.
    Bioware didn't make KotOR 2.

    Are there going to be more/different endings or ending DLCs in the future?
    No. BioWare strongly believes in the team’s artistic vision for the end of this arc of the Mass Effect franchise. The extended cut DLC will expand on the existing endings, but no further ending DLC is planned.
    I recommend they get this "team's" eyesight checked...
    So basically nothing, same retarded star child, circular logic, blind Coats.

Instead of getting nice epilogues/cutscenes of what happens to your crew, and seeing them in action in the final minutes. You get the final boss before she dies and you get to ask her one question about each of them. In which she gives you vague answers. It was one of the main reasons the game is looked on with scorn. It happened because the game was rushed out before fully finished. Now here they did the exact same thing, with slightly more conversation in the fact you actually get to say a couple words to them personally.

    Why do game developers or publishers not learn from mistakes? /facepalm
