The Internets(as you most likely know if you're viewing this forum) are currently abuzz with speculation and rampant vitriolic hate about the Mass Effect 3 ending. Honestly, there's enough evidence about that I think that the indoctrination theory is pretty conclusive. It seems like it will make sense that BioWare will release some sort of DLC with the "Real" ending.
So, here's my question:
Do you think fucking ANYBODY, let alone BioWare in 2012 could pull something like that off? I know some games like Prince of Persia and Alan Wake have done similar things, but I don't think either of those games left you as unsatisfied with the ending as ME3(I haven't played Prince of Persia) did. Stack on top of that how the BioWare fan community has become more and more hateful of EVERYTHING that company does since Dragon Age II, I honestly don't think that even if this update is free(which it should be, they'd be fucking insane if it was paid, right?) it will go over well with the community at all. Deliberately leaving customers with a shitty false ending to give them a real ending through DLC is a little insane, but I could see how some french canadian person could view it as some sort of interesting artistic experiment. I just really, really hope that I don't have to pay for it.
Then again, I don't know how I wouldn't have to pay for it, EA wouldn't let anything like that slide without making a little bit of extra money. Hell, they're a business, I can see why. I'm probably just trying my hardest to convince myself that the DLC will be free anyways.
If BioWare fails horribly with this(hypothetical) endeavor, do you think anyone could pull it off with some degree of taste?
