Hah, try and prevent me from saving before final decision eh?

Did anyone else find it to be too short? Maybe I just played it too much in single sittings...
I was completely engrossed in the game, up until the last hour or so. I am really conflicted right now. I LOVE the Mass Effect universe, I really do. I totally have an emotional attachment with the characters in these games. I've laughed at them, I've cried with them. I already miss them. Mass Effect 3 had many great moments in it for me. It had plenty of laughs and at other moments had me in tears. But the endings left me with a sour taste in my mouth. I actually don't feel like making another run through the game (ME1 and 2 I did many, and did so immediately after). For those of who who haven't finished, enjoy the ride. It's a blast. Experience the ending at the last possible moment though.
The difference between a SJW and an activist: An activist tries to get a ramp added to a building for easier wheelchair access. The SJW tries to get the stairs removed because they might offend people who can't use them.
...Last time I am going to say this. The "DLC" is not cut or content that is just locked on the disc since its almost 1GB. Its content that was developed outside of the main development cycle, meaning if DLC didn't exist then we would have never seen it. The code for it is included in the CE version of the game. They reason why they offer it on day 1 is for people who didn't order the CE. People are just confirming their own bias.
I have 100% paragon and 3% renegade, I could have chosen renegade on the final conversation check.
WTF was the Normandy doing there at the end? And why were those people onboard?
And the logic at the end was just ...wat for me. I mean, to stop synthetics killing everyone, they kill everyone every 50k years using synthetic life, good job, great "solution"
I LOVED the rest of the game (bar a few bugs) but the ending is just ridiculous. (people complained that it was... sad? Really?)
-Why the Normandy left the battle has no explanation, also your squadmates that were with you in the final mission are "magically" teleported into the Normandy.
-The reason for the Reapers existence is also stupid:[url]http://i1001.photobucket.com/albums/af134/gnosblax/yodawgme.jpg[/url]
Dark Energy causes stars to become unstable after X years: Caused by Mass Effect fields: Requires technological reset.
Explains why reapers lay dormant in deadspace, doesn't require your godlike mystery entity to be retarded
Also, when you choose your ending:
A brief flashback shows the 3 most important people in Shepard's life, the first two are Joker and Anderson, and the third is...Liara,Ashley or Kaidan. It doesn't matter who you romanced in ME2, the game just shows that Liara is more important than your love interest.

It's like they gave up after the mission before earth (spoilers) then again after the final farewells.
I had a military strength of 6.2k at the end (missed a load of stuff and sacrificed some on quarian world) and I felt it had NO effect beyond the minimum.
There's NO indication of what happened to any of the characters... beyond ridiculous plotholes. (even something DAO style would be nice)
Like I said I LOVED the rest of the game (beyond a few bugs) but the ending is just... SO MUCH WAT. I would rather have it sadder and make sense than that.

I saw the user ratings on Metacritic (not that I trust Metacritic) and... well. Let's just say alot of people give the game a 0 with the only reason they have is "homo-sex". Really? I can understand other issues such as Origin, day1 DLC etc but "homo-sex everywhere" is a theme that is so recurring in all those "reviews" that I am beginning to think that the Vatican is doing the reviewing.
It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shakes, the shakes become a warning.
God I fucking love the mass effect codex. Every time they come out I sit and listen to all the entries. That guy has the most news worthy voice in the galaxy. He should run for office or something.
