I didn't get jack!

Since it's the internet and people have been having fun complaining about different things that they didn't like about Mass Effect 3, I thought why not. But I don't really have much to complain about. Sure the ending was a little depressing no matter what you choose, there is a good amount of jank in it (I couldn't get over how my guys eyes made him look possessed half the time lol), and just some other random stuff that people have been complaining about. But the biggest travesty the game commits is with the Jack relationship.

I enjoyed the conclusion to the relationship with Jack in Mass Effect 2 as it was something besides the "yep, they did it" that I ended up with in Mass Effect, so I was hoping for something a little bit more in Mass Effect 3. Boy was I disappointed. I was pumped when the mission with Jack occurred (oh dear is that a spoiler?!?! not really) and even enjoyed how it played out and ended. But all that happens after that ("major" spoilers ahead) is you have a little conversation with a joke about how Shepard can't dance and then you go dance. Really? That's it?

I didn't expect her to play a big role, but come on, give the people that actually liked Jack something. Didn't have to be a love scene or anything, but something besides a few seconds of weird dancing. So, like everyone on the internet, I demand that this travesty be rectified! Whether it's DLC (I'll give you a free one BioWare, call it the Jack Pack) or a brand new game where you just play as your Shepard and Jack and go and kick some new flying talking space ship looking monsters. I'm not asking for much. Just some more of my favorite tattooed, ass-kicking, foul-mouthed, biotic powered chick.

There you go BioWare, once you get done fulfilling everyone else's demands, which I'm sure you're slaving away at this moment, I will look forward to seeing what you do to make me happy. Thank you in advanced.

Jack is dead.

I didn't know about that, it totally sucks though cause Jack is my favorite character and I was really looking forward to seeing how that all ended.

I romanced Tali and still got dancing with Jack scene. So I believe you have the right to be mad about the lack of Jack stuff in your romance.

I didn't see Jack, Thane, or any Protheans when I beat the game, I missed them somehow....

Unless Jack or Thane died in ME2 you should eventually run into them in a mission or the Citadel hospital. The Prothean is DLC though.

I romanced Jack in ME2. I wanted her as a companion but I guess BioWare went "Nah!". Disappointing. I thought she was cool.

Not true. It seems they have a time stamp on them. It seems I took too much time getting to the Hospital and Thane was gone and if you don't do the Grissom Academy mission RIGHT AWAY then the mission is gone. Kinda sucks because it was early one and the fucked up mission menu was still a puzzle to me.

Same with Miranda!

Also why was the Life Support room always empty?! It just kept reminding me of Thane every time I walked in there...

This is sad. I demand more Jack!

I went down and stared at Jack's empty hidey hole in the deck below engineering.

I didn't do it immediately and it never disappeared.

You can do three missions prior to the Grissom Academy mission before it disappears. On my first playthrough, I did one mission before that one.

Same thing happened to me. And there's no warning at all about the time constraints. Mission Menu is bad agreed. I'll be sure to get those scenes/missions though next playthrough w/a renegade Shep. And yeah, Jack was one of my fav characters from ME2 also. Poop.

At the Cerberus base Jack appeared as an enemy, I one shot killed her and that was it. Shepard didn't say a word, no cutscene, nothing, just a random enemy that I shot dead and it wasn't noted at all.

I guess BioWare don't think Shepard gunning down one of his old crewmates is worthy of at least one line of dialogue after...

@Mordukai: Really? That sucks

And I heard the same thing happens with Monrinth as a Banshee, which I thought was pretty cool. Don't see how that works with Jack at Cerberus though.
