@Dagbiker: Yeah, and while you can consider them aliens since they're not the only ones in the universe, and they are in fiction, I meant aliens to Earth, and aren't from reality.

I have a question. If you're full paragon like my Shepard was and you save the Geth and the Quarian, does Shepard interrupt Spaceboy's stupid little bullshit and say "Hey fuckface, organics and synthetics CAN live together? Go check out the Quarian homeworld?"

If not, then that MASSIVELY HUGE plot hole is still wide open, and the developers at BioWare should be ashamed of themselves.

And still no kind of any resolution, resolve, moving on from any love interests either?

One example of new-born co-existence won't dissuade the Reapers.

Eh, maybe, but the fact that Sheppard doesn't even bring it up is kind of nuts.

I think you have to look at it this way, people assume once the war is over that the Krogan (whether they do or not) will want revenge because of the genophage, and you, as in Shepard may know that they won't, but not everyone does. Maybe after the war, in the future from there, synthetics will want to conquer or fight against organics. It's not really a plot hole. I mean, when you play it, you may be thinking "Fuck that, I resolved all the problems! I WAS THERE!" but when you think about it realistically, it may not turn out the way you want. Now, what I'm saying obviously doesn't really happen in the game, but still. I think that's the way you have to go about it. It's not a plot hole, you just have to think about it in a different way. I think the child can foretell or assumed at some point in the future that synthetics and organics would go at it again, and it's not so much about them being able to get along or not.

They need the Catalyst to be able to stop the Reapers, and they don't like what they'll have to do to lose in order to win. They don't like what they have to sacrifice (the geth, EDI, themselves). They want to be named Space Emperor Supreme and have the krogan bake them a birthday cake.

If you do the synthesis choice on this new ending, even if you dislike the fact that all organics gain some sort of advanced synthetic to their DNA, it is in fact the best choice to choose (I've said this before). The only problem is Shepard has to sacrifice himself for it, but if you really think about it, if you were living in that time in reality, you wouldn't be Shepard, you'd be one of the people living on (if you imagine yourself not being one of the soldiers that died during the fight), and being better as a human than ever before, life would be great for the most part I assume. Maybe I'm thinking too far into it, but that's one way to go about it to make it less bad.

Picard's angry because his ancient PS3 broke.

@Jay444111: Actually their necromorphs that can infect a body and take control of its human form, which is scary as fuck.

@Schmollian: People keep saying the Reapers, but isn't there some kind of alien race that can obliterate the universe or at least a galaxy as fast as the blink of an eye? I bet there is. I mean, I don't know who or what, but I assume there is. And when I think about it, Reapers as far as we know are only focused on our Galaxy.

@Nightriff: Did you read the Bioware letter at the end? Sequels are strongly inferred there. I think this Extended Cut DLC really helps set up the next trilogy perhaps, and they could go forward or back in time, and pick up on a whole new challenge and threat, focusing on any of the established races or new ones. Sky's the limit imo, although there's the reality that DK is gone so some new writing talent must move in I spose. Don't be sad, you'll get more ME in a few years. :)

Maybe, but to me, it seemed more like they fixed it because it was one of the complaints people had with it. I mean, it did seem like it could be referring to more ME's, but I also kind of felt it was just re-saying "Buy more DLC at a later time!" but in a better way that doesn't make it seem like their money grabbing whores (I hate saying that word, but did it anyways). I could be wrong.

@Red: Well, I would still consider them alien organic or not. Anything that doesn't come from Earth is alien.
