The inactivity of this forum.
Thu Apr 02, 2015 11:06 pm by Burkman
It's depressing to see how inactive it has been recently. I mean, everybody is pretty much primarily posting in the never ending thread now and there's not enough people here to make this place really booming. We need to find some way to bring more people here before this place just fades into nothingness...

I know for a fact that a lot of boards out there are thriving because of how many people are there. We just need to get back into the game and pull people here. However, where we obtain these people might matter, because we don't to end up pulling in douches like those at Selkath.

I understand that people are busy these days, but it doesn't seem like they're rarely at their computer anymore. I know most of you are still dicking around with your computer. I don't know how we …

I still don't see what was so terrible about ME3's ending. What were you expecting? 34 unique endings depending on what you did? The ending is pretty much how ME2's ending was, right?

How many endings did ME2 have? 2. One where shepard dies and one where he lives. Plus a series of checkboxes over which characters are alive or not. rachni queen this, wrex that, blah blah blah. The ending is the same! Hell, there's really only one ending. You can't import a save where he dies.

There's only so many ways the ME trilogy could really end. Reapers destroy everything or they don't.

Wasn't this pretty much what I said two threads back?
But here's what you're missing- It's not the actual ending most people are pissed at, it's the way it was delivered, the ton of plot holes it left open and the other ton of plot holes it made...

I'm downloading the Extended Cut as we speak. This is supposed to contain "closure", but I'm not getting my hopes up.

No, I don't think you understand how bad the ending is.

Quote :
It would not surprise me if the EC essentially consisted of that; the writers responsible talking down to us like we're completely thick. I get the ending; I just think that it's utter arse that runs contrary to everything the series had set out and what I had accomplished to that point.

I think somebody did care, as I think there are a lot of great character moments and banter in there. [I do agree that I wish someone had been there to stop the writers from getting so self-indulgent at the end, where they do their level best to undo five years of goodwill in five minutes.

I can't help but feel that Bioware has misunderstood what the central appeal of the series is. They were caught napping when it came to the Deception debacle, and that should've served as a warning sign. There's also the fact that a lot of the DLC for ME2 was really substandard, with Lair of the Shadow Broker being the only noteworthy one to my mind as it focused more on character interaction than combat. The plot's never been particularly deep either and it didn't have to be, but such a jarring and entirely unwelcome tonal change in the last five minutes, with plot points seemingly invented on the spot and no real chance to affect the outcome, makes for a really nihilistic ending that is literally unbelievable when the credits roll. No matter how Bioware try to slice it, I have the feeling nothing will really change with the EC.

Point and match. Stop arguing things you don't understand, Uly.

You edited my post. Fuck you. You're a police officer who abuses his power cuz someone made him mad.

Also, that argument you posted doesn't say why it's so bad, just that it's bad. "Oh, we had choices and shit and then the ending didn't give us choices and shit" The story had an end, you finished the story. Reapers stopped! Yay! Would you like an ending where they destroy everyone and the cycle continues? That's really the only other outcome, details aside. You stop 'em or you don't.

You're an idiot who can't read. You haven't played the game. You're not a true fan to understand. Go away and find your own subject.

Ending is fine. Just like dark tower ending. Many complained, was fine. In red ending, shepard destroys the reapers and as a bonus kills the geth, right? Shame 'bout that EDI bitch. And he gets to live, apparently. Yay, all is well.

Looked at the endings on Youtube because I'm a lazy ass who is not downloading the extended cut.

And...

Burkman, I haven't finished ME2 and I never played ME3. I didn't experience the story for myself so I can't really understand why the ending is so terrible unless I played it myself. I just think I wouldn't find it that bad, but I wasn't there to know for sure. I mentioned that before and I'd be willing to accept it. You were a prick about it though, and that makes me fight back.

I know what I did was rude, too. Saying you couldn't argue against my point. I'm sorry. I wanted you to tell me why you thought the ending was bad. I now know I shouldn't have done it by poking you with a stick like that.

And what exactly is prohibiting you from acting on those words you just spoke?

@Uly: This is where you stop posting in this thread if you know what's good for you...

Encouraging burkman using his admin powers on me because he doesn't like what I said doesn't bode well for everyone, not just me.
