Redlettermedia-style breakdown of the ending (SPOILERS)

This topic is locked from further discussion.

This is very long, and it's a blatant ripoff of the RLM videos, but it's okay because it does a great job articulating the problems with the ending.

I know a 40 minute video is off-putting but it's quite captivating.

The game is out, of course you can do a post mortem of it.

Also the dude is right.

I watched it for a while but found all the "jokes" to be super off putting. It almost seemed like a reasonably wrought documentary in the beginning, but the dogged adherence to "This is on the internet, so I have to make it funny" got tiring real fast.

Yes, just what I wanted, more threads about the ending of Mass Effect 3.

@BrockNRolla: I don't think it's so much, 'I'm on the internet' and more 'I'm going to try and inform you about something about for 39 minutes and think you won't finish unless I entertain you a little bit too.' 
 
Public speakers and teachers are always trying out corny jokes to keep your attention.  It's probably not easy to pull off, but I get why he would do it.

Thanks for the link, I enjoyed the video.

Its kinda amazing how the ending of ME3 totally deflated my feelings for the universe.

I have no idea what I want Bioware to do, but it saddens me that this great franchise will go down like this.

@idoublespy:

I am quite aware of redlettermedia.

I guess it depends on what you want of a post mortem of ME3, i for one don't care about the jokes or the comedy of the analysis. Maybe the jokes would be better 6 months from now, who knows. The content of the ME3 release won't change however, time won't change how badly bioware fucked up the ending of Mass Effect. Ultimately, that's the point the dude is trying to get across, humor or not.

Another thread about the stupid ending. Give it a rest.

Excellent work!  Fuck the Philistines and jealous types.

Sleepy moderator here. A couple of things, firstly there are already plenty of threads about the Mass Effect 3 ending and we're trying to stop the boards becoming over-run with duplicate threads discussing the topic. Secondly, we expect any threads containing embedded content or links to include at least one lengthy paragraph of text, written in a way that is intended to incite discussion, otherwise it is treated as spam and violates our forum rules. Thank you.
