''The Truth DLC'' Rumor

#1 Posted by JoyfullOFrockets (1177 posts) -

Saw this recently, don't really know to what extent it's reliable but I'll share regardless:

If this is true, it'd be a pretty low-blow for Bioware. All of that just for more money? Wait, not really surprised there.

I'm calling fake on this one.

FAKE. He said he's about to be laid off in about a week.
 
Do you know how fucking easy it is to do that "disgruntled employee about to get fired" routine?
 
 
I am a somewhat unimportant Whiskey Media writer. I am about to be fired in about a week, so here's some nasty emails that Jeff Gerstmann has sent me.

At first glance I thought so too, but after some thought it'd make sense; make a non-satisfying ending, wait for fans to gain a crave for a good one, pull one out of their ass> profit.

And if it's true, worst part is that everyone will buy. : (

All of the dev twitters have been firing hints at this.

Mo money. Smart move on their part.

I'm willing to believe the rumor, however I think this source for it is bogus. Too much personal info, dude could likely get tracked down with what he described, and thus, I don't think he'd do this.

I was so confused by the last 15 minutes of ME3 that I honestly choose to believe the indoctrination theory, or that there might be some sort of epilogue dlc, but this, nah, calling fake.

Just feels like someone trying to hard too cobble together a fake story.

#9 Posted by JoyfullOFrockets (1177 posts) -

If I also remember correctly, some people had leaked the script some time ago and because of which they had to re-do the ending? Maybe this was supposed to be the real ending all along? Gah.

#10 Posted by Mnemoidian (955 posts) -

I read about this from a different source (maybe? it was supposedly "sourced anonymous") - claimed it would be free DLC (only reason I'm assuming it's a different rumor). Also included the rumored Multiplayer classes, another map and another Multiplayer faction to fight against... in said free DLC.

But no, I'm not going to get my hopes up based on some BS rumor that ANYONE could have cobbled together. Maybe it's true, then we'll see in April? Maybe it's just another troll taking advantage of the situation (much likelier).

That's fake as shit.

So is the 'new multiplayer class Asari Justicar!' stuff because justicars are already in there.

According to the writer of ME1 and 2 the premise for the conclusion was change mid way through production. It was supposed to be about combating Dark Energy and the Human Reaper.

If this DLC exists and is the "true ending" hence the name "The Truth", then Bioware will get blown to smithereens by angry Internet-heroes if it isn't free.

#14 Posted by Delphic (62 posts) -

I'm calling fake on this one as well. The last "rumor" about the DLC seemed more legit than this does.

#15 Posted by DexDude (1 posts) -

They probably fired this guy because he doesn't know the difference between 'Their' and "There'. Seriously, I'm calling fake on this.

The goodwill this would destroy on the parts of everyone involved... No. Absolutely not true.

People need to stop looking for conspiracies here. Just because some people didn't like the end, doesn't mean Bioware made them not like it on purpose.

Well considering they deliberately made the ending vague so, as their lead writer (or was it Casey Hudson? I think it was the lead writer, but it's one of them) wrote to "cause lots of speculation from everyone", and one of the biggest complaints is the complete lack of closure and how nothing make sense, it's pretty debatable that they did it on purpose.

That said I have no idea why someone bumped this week old thread to tell us he thinks it's fake when they've already said it's fake and it's already been debunked.

It sounds like it's written by an angry fan. The Day DLC bit gave it away for me. If it's fake.

Because that's just how I roll son.

@JoyfullOFrockets: Nah, it's Mass Effect. People will throw their money at the screen as sonn as DLC is promised anyway. No reason to make a bad ending just to get more money.

#26 Posted by Stepside (509 posts) -

Judging by the terrible writing, it's obviously fake. That's fine.

However, if "the Truth DLC" comes out and costs $10...I have to admit that I'll totally buy it.

#27 Edited by Sooty (8082 posts) -

Don't care, I won't support anything BioWare release to fix or explain the ending.

All this fuss over ME3, and that ME3 was mediocre has made me want nothing to do with this series for a long, long time...

That's the vibe I got. Comes off as trying too hard.
