'Mass Effect 3', Our Conclusions and 'the' Conclusion

by G. Christopher Williams

2 April 2012

The podcast draws its own conclusions about the controversial conclusion of Bioware's epic trilogy.
 

Having spent last week discussing the manner in which our personal playthoughs have affected our sense of Mass Effect on the whole through the series’s seemingly consequential storytelling, this week we move on to a discussion of Mass Effect 3 more specifically.

We begin at the end by discussing the controversy surrounding the game’s ending and the notion of requesting (or demanding) that some changes might be in order to a game in which player choice has always seemed to be of some importance to the developer.  However, we also get into the game as a whole, considering some of the other moments that mattered to us in the trilogy’s concluding 40 hours.

"The stories in this collection are circular, puzzling; they often end as cruelly as they do quietly, the characters and their journeys extinguished with poisonous calm.
