    Overall, I did not like the ending... far too many holes that need filling. That said, I am happy with the game, and series. When it comes to entertainment purchases, like movies and games, I put them up against my "theatre scale". When you go to the movies, you spend roughly $20 or so for food, ticket, and gas to get there and that gets you roughly 2 hours of entertainment. I apply that to every game/movie I ever play by asking myself the question: "Is this more or less $20 per 2 hours of fun?".

    Any irritation with the last 20 minutes aside, Mass Effect 3 was still 30+ hours of entertainment for $60+. So yeah, I'll share my opinion on the ending, but end of the day I don't regret the buy.

    LOL AT THE CAMERA MAN IN THE BACK (around 16 minutes, alittle before.)

    Ah yes, Steve Johnson. The man who lost all credibility for stating that they shouldn't change the ending/he liked the ending before he had finished the game. I understand having differing views but picking a man who has effectively lost all his credibility through being asinine probably wasn't the best call.

    Also, I Nikole is adorable playing with her highlighter while Stephen is talking about how he felt about the ending. I think it might be the best illustration of her age relative to everyone else.

    I completely agree with Nikole

    I have to say, I really appreciate Blair raising the question of "professional critics" versus "reviewers." I have never seen a critic concede that they may not be more qualified than the average person to be the arbiter of what is good and what isn't (whether it was just an exorcise of not). Good on you Blair.

    Imagine you have been in a wonderful relationship with a dream guy/girl. He's everything you wanted and finally proposes. It's a dream come true. You finally believe in true love. You make plans for the wedding. The flowers, the dress, you can just see everything in your mind! It's going to be wonderful.

    Then on the big day he leaves you at the altar, dumps you with a post it note with a nonsensical reason "because cranberries". You plead for answers but none are given other than "because I had to".

    Sure it might have been the best guy ever but that doesn't justify anything.

    This is Mass Effect.
