[VR-Zone] BBB accuses BioWare of false advertising over Mass Effect 3 - Page 8

post #71 of 75
I know I'm a week late, but O NOES! An entity that does not give any transparency to how it functions is trolling a video game distributor because fans whined hard enough.

The BBB is a racketeering front. A little piece of me dies inside every time someone talks about complaining to the BBB.

I've reported EA to the BBB a good few times. For false advertisement among other things. I've won every case too. These companies need to learn that you cannot continue to kick your consumers and expect them to throw more money at you. Now, did I enjoy ME3? Yes, I really did. Was the ending poor? I'd say it could have used some improvements. But overall it was a good game. Should they be sued for it? No, I do not believe they should be sued for the "ending" However falsely leading dedicated fans to opinion is also wrong, and they should atleast make a formal appology with a DLC or something.

Wow.

Far Cry 2 got a 3.5 on Amazon. Are you guys really going to sit there and tell me that Far Cry 2 is better than Mass Effect 3?

I've played both. I enjoyed Far Cry 2 much more. So in my case, yes.

Even though this is a stretch I kinda hope this goes somewhere tbh.
Maybe now EA will stop spitting in the faces of their costumers...

Later peeps.

I liked the ending. I thought it was fine. It was different than most endings in video games out there today, there was not a happy ending and I'm fine with that (I got the 5000 EMS ending). Also, I enjoy series that don't make your character immortal. I feel that every character should be able to die instead of some turn of events that takes them from "there's no way he's gonna survive this" to "holy crap how did he live through that?!" The amount of media (not just games, movies and books as well) that make the protagonist is astonishing and I'm sick of the same crap over and over.

There's a Feedback podcast episode where they discuss the ending, and Nikole Z (hated the ending) and Steve J (liked the ending) both bring up good points on both sides of the argument. Everyone should check it out.
