[Kotaku]Gamers Are Now Angry at BioWare Because of An Image in Mass Effect 3 (SPOILER) - Page 16

That means Bioware could've grabbed any half-decent artist to draw her an amazing, unique face like heaps of fans already have done.
But what did they do instead? They did a 100% copy-paste of a photo of some lingerie model, changed the background, added some face-paint and use the eraser tool on 2 of her fingers. This could only be the result of some kind of inside joke going around Bioware employees. Tali was one of the main characters through two Mass Effect games and was developed extensively. The only people saying "oh who cares?" are the ones who haven't played anything from the series and their comment is therefore invalid.
I choose to forget the atrosity that Bioware did with Tali's face (and the pathetic closure of the series as a whole), to me this is what she always looked like:

Still very human-looking but unique and beautiful at the same time.

That picture is very well done (the one you posted). It's definitely how I would have pictured her. It would have been nice for Bioware to look to the community for something like this if they didn't plan on putting effort into it themselves. I don't think that would have ever happened, though.

I remember searching up talis face right after the second ME, and this is what came up I thought it was a bioware release for her. I also dont think Bioware will use it considering all the crap theyve threw at us, I doubt theyd collaborate with any of us gamers.

This kinda feels like they had this article published to completely mitigate attention away from the endings. I didn't care at all about this. Quarians were, in the books, said to have facial features resembling humans. I'm glad I know what Tali looks like now and I have no problems. The endings however, are grinding my nerves quite a bit. I've been ranting about that for almost the entirety of the past week.

I'm becoming tempted to not finish the game based on what I've heard about it. Although, it cannot possibly be worse than the ending to Rage.

You'd be surprised. Having the Reapers win would have been more satisfying. But right up until the last 5 minutes, everything is amazing. Just look up some fan made endings and run with one of those. They're much more fitting.

I can overlook the goat legs en lieu of that rear.

The ending does blow. Ruins an absolutely fantastic game. However, I know why they did it.

They knew that it would leave us all feeling empty so they could dump a DLC on us to BUY to find out what really happened in the end.

Yay EA.

Ok, I've been doing some reading around the interwebz. One guy offered a really interesting scenario.

As we all know, the game really goes into weirdo mode and stops making sense after Harbinger jacks you up while you're running for the relay.

What if... We didn't actually see the ending. Think about this, because it does actually seem plausible.

You get hit with the beam and are knocked unconscious. Everything after that is taking place in your mind. Possibly an attempt at indoctrination by Harbinger? It seems possible, with the appearance of the boy that has been haunting your dreams. It's said that attempts to indoctrinate Shepard fail, for whatever the reason. Perhaps Harbinger is trying to lead you into it unknowingly? You are offered the choice to join the reapers or merge organic and synthetic life. You join/control the reapers, you've given in. You choose to merge... What are the reapers? A merger of organic and synthetic life. As EDI describes them, an organic construct. This option also results in you giving in to the reapers.

However, if you had enough points and destroyed the reapers. Everything ends with one final scene. The shot of the armor suddenly taking a deep breath. If you chose to destroy the reapers, you refused to give in TO the reapers, thus refusing indoctrination. The breath you see Shepard draw is not a breath drawn on the Citadel after the decision... It's the breath you draw back on Earth. Now it's time to possibly face Harbinger and defeat the Reapers for real?

It's kind of a stretch, but it sounds like it could certainly be possible. It sounds right down EA's alley too, with the need for another $10 DLC to see the ACTUAL ending to the series.


Not saying I believe it, just saying that thought is floating around out there.
