I have seen the news of the new extra epilogue DLC. I can not help but be completely unsure of how this will sate me and other people that feel similar.
The key thing is the ending is not going to change. Sure I will accept that to a point. I sort of accept and have to be fine with the whole crucible and Mass Relays stuff. That is unchangeable maybe cushion it and make it less "choose a colour of explosion" other than that fine. Annoying slightly that Shepard dies in all decisions,Ill take it, however it annoys me that Shepards supposedly lives ONLY if you destroy everything...with the secret ending by having over 5000MS. Not going to take legal action over it.
However.....how can they explain the completely strange and out of character stuff that happens after that?
Some epilogue as you why Joker has "Ran" from the biggest battle (and so quickly) to end up in the Mass Relay as it explodes. Aswell as how did everyone who was on earth fighting suddenly appear on the Normandy for them to run away? This make a little sense by simply saying "They fucked up" since the written testament by a writer of ME3 said himself he had to fight to even get to see all your teammates to say goodbye and get holo calls to others. Meaning someone didnt realize the continuity error and since the ending of them flying away was already done before the fight for the last goodbye was put in.
Now I feel a bit annoyed that we dont get an offical epilogue however I can live with that. You have every race now stranded at earth.
I dont even feel the actually ending needs a change yeah sure give more explanation to soften it sure.
What I would like changed is the whole Normandy thing. And the final after the credits bit of "Tell me more of The legend of Shepard." except I have the best eraser of all already. My mind. I will just wipe it. Its only a problem if the next ME games follow on with that as cannon.
The only explanation I feel is needed, is the one about Joker running away and everyone on the ship. Other than that I simply have to accept the ending. as is. Is it a good one? no. Can the Improve it, I hope it can be, However it will be a decent amount of work to buffer the ending into something better while not actually changing anything.
They say it will give players a more personal touch to the ending. I like that idea. However I don't know how it works out. Especially for people who already completed it and had the not so good ending ingrained as the truth.
What do people think? Is an explanation needed?
