The issue with this setup is that the problem people have with the ending is so non-specific from a plot standpoint. There's no way he could guess "the thing" that had people so up in arms because of the nature of the ending.

Posted by Tsuchikage

This is amazing! Since the ending(s) of Mass Effect 3 really don't have anything to do with the story before it/them, I'm betting Brad is way off base. Can't wait to see his reaction!

@Ryuku_Ryosake: but see brad is playing it full with all the dlc, and the leviathan dlc foreshadows the thing about the ending. so thats another variable to take in, if he played the dlc

If Brad wrote this down, I'm gonna die laughing:

Shepard is indoctrinated.

Shepard is Keyser Soze. #spoiled

Shepard was a reaper all along

Posted by Arrested_Developer

I'm guessing he's picked up enough stray talk to know the ending has something to do with a child so I bet he writes something about Shepard impregnating his love interest. Hmmm, but that wouldn't work with gayshep and Brad would probably take that into consideration so maaaaaaaybe not.

I bet its going to be that Shepard dies

Posted by rmanthorp

He probably wrote a better ending.

I'm trying to think what about the Thessia mission could have triggered this..... or maybe it had Nothing to do with his sudden realization..... what about brad showering could have triggered this.....

Everyone think about Brad showering and put it in an envelope.

Done.

I hate the ending of Mass Effect 3 so much. Nine months later and I'm still bummed about that game.

I second that.

My only hope is that Brad wont be all apologetic about ME3 on the bombcast.

Posted by crithon

biggest drama in my shallow little life in the past 9 months.

Posted by rebgav

If he's near the end of the game, has played the dlc, and was ever listening during ME3 discussions on the podcast then he should have a pretty damn good idea what the ending is. Which is why it's going to be hilarious when we find out how wrong he is.

Posted by Foggen

0% chance. I just hope he brings Liara and Javik to Thessia, because the level of condescension in that part is fucking magical.

I haven't even started ME3.

Still not sure if I want to sour ME 1 & 2.

Posted by MAJID

I want to know what's in that letter. I mean, I STILL want to know what was in Dave's GOTY letter from a couple of years back.

Posted by Hef

@mlarrabee: It's still a really great game. The ending isn't horrible it's just...different.

Posted by NTM

I don't think he's right, I don't know how he can be, although he may get the basics down. Also, people need to not post what they think he wrote, 'cause then it might give him some ideas.

Aww I want to know now. :-[

@drumpsycho89: I can understand if they wanted more info on the choices they made.... But I liked the ending anyways. I'm ok with things like the krogan/turian stuff being left open.

Star Child made sense to me

The dream sequences weren't so hot though

Speaking as someone who actually liked the endings (and the extended cut), both the dream and the thing you've got spoiler blocked were COMPLETELY anathema to my enjoyment.

Posted by Bwgmon

Why do I get the feeling that Brad's prediction is something both hilarious and hokey?

Something like "Kai Leng is Shepard's brother."

Posted by Toxin066

Watch the way his hand moves. He clearly wrote "Shepard was in the animus".

No. Some people say that the ending didn't really eliminate the idea of that being it, but I think it clearly did. When I was playing the extended ending, it felt as if Bioware saw that theory and downright denied it through subtly, and not so subtly added scenes.

Posted by Graham_Nix

Does Brad play with the original ending or the extended cut?

Edited by Draxyle

I love that this is a thing. I can't wait for the revelation of it all.

There's no way he could guess an ending that was practically written without the entire rest of the trilogy in mind, but he's probably absorbed enough through osmosis that he might have a clue. He had to have heard about the child at the very least

Posted by MikeFightNight

I'm just honestly surprised that Brad has managed to avoid any knowledge of the ending, especially considering what line of work his in. If not absorbing it from friends then some dick on the Internet twitting or spoiling it in a forum title.

Posted by GeekDown

If he manages to guess right, we can officially call Brad a videogame clairvoyant. There is no way he's gonna be able to get it.

Posted by Mystyr_E

QUESTION! Is he playing with the horrible POS abomination that is the original endings or the band-aid on a cut-off finger that is the Extended cut?

I hate the ending of Mass Effect 3 so much. Nine months later and I'm still bummed about that game.

I just finished it in the last week & so I was really expecting a disappointing ending & had lowered expectations. But then I played the game & it reminded me of everything I loved about Mass Effect, why I was so attached to the series & the universe, enough to actually read the first 2 books for christ sake, & I've never read any video game related fiction before. And then I got to the end & was promptly deflated. The stuff like you constantly bumping into old pals largely didn't bother me, although the Jacob one did more than others, that could just be because I never once gave a fuck about Jacob. But the ending itself, it's just felt so unsatisfying. My Shepherd would not end up in that situation. It felt like they'd crowbarred the character that I'd built over 3 games into this predefined ending & that was disappointing.

I think that's why it still disappointed me despite every saying for the past 9 months that it was awful.

Posted by Lazyaza

Oh Brad you so silly, no one hated the ending for just 1 thing, people hated it for many reasons, some chose to dwell on some more than others. Me personally I never got enraged by it, just mildly disappointed as I felt Bioware was capable of more but god I really don't want this topic to be debated to death all over again, this is why I wish he had just played the game when it was out.

I dunno, I thought that this was more of sign that it was possible:

When you choose to walk away, the star child starts sounding like a reaper.

Also, I'm treating this all like a big joke.
