HOLY FUCK.

So many fucking spoiled gamers!

And so many of these gamers grew up with games where you were more likely to get "Congratulations, you beat the game!" as an ending screen.

Ugh.....

FTC? That's fucking ridiculous.

Why don't they just ask Bioware to fix the game? I bet they're probably already working on some "ending dlc" as we speak.

EDIT: We already have a Mass Effect 3 thread, as well as the video game general thread. Do you guys like making redundant threads just for the fuck of it?

1) They already 'asked' in the way of a petition and multiple angry threads on the Bioware forums
2) 'you guys'?

Have I mentioned I hate most gaming fans?

Because I hate most gaming fans.

A lot.

It seems like they can do nothing but whine like ungrateful bitches.

To the point where even people who make genuine criticisms are drowned out.

Of course, silent majority, loud minority, and all that.  But still, they infect the communities like a plague.

The #RetakeMassEffect movement does not in anyway support the idea of reporting Bioware or EA to the FTC. This isn't about a legal issue, it's about Mass Effect fans standing together to support an amazing series.

I'm all for the right to bitch and see if you can get your problems addressed. It rarely works, but whatever floats your boat.

The FTC thing is dumb as fuck, and I'm glad this group is not standing by the insanity. It's waste of time, and frankly, taxpayer money.

The product was provided, you didn't like a subjective part of it, grow the fuck up. It works as advertised.

Amazon and now EA's Origins is offering refunds for ME3 in response to the FTC filings.

Amazon.com has stated that they will take the game back for an exact refund, even if the case has been opened and any code has been used. EA’s own digital distribution service Origin will also be refunding players. All they have to do is contact customer services and the game will be taken off of their account.

This just keeps getting crazier.  Though if you bought your game from gamestop you are still F-ed haha.

I got my Collector's Edition ME3 from Newegg and the thought of sending it back for a refund has not crossed my mind even once.

It's 99% an amazing game. I think people have the right to ask for DLC to increase different types of endings, so you still feel as if you can control an outcome, and to threaten not buying another game, the usual first world problems and all... But people are acting like this is some sort of swindle or scam. It's pure, unadulturated bullshit, and these so-called "gamers" are ruining a relationship with a divison of EA that hasn't completely screwed gamers over in the past.
