An extended cut isn't going to fix the thematic problems, probably isn't going to fix the plot holes, and definitely isn't going to fix the amount of wtf deus ex machina that the ending was.
 But hey at least they're offering it for free which helps remove the cynicism that they might have done shitty ending deliberately just to sell dlc.

Patrick still misrepresenting why people are mad about mass effect's ending. Willful dishonesty or just lazy reporting? Who knows.
There's a really good game front article about why the ending is horrible.
*for the record, I'm not a Retakemasseffecter, even if they dlc'd in a good ending, in my head I will always know how ME3 ended and it will still be ruined from a story point of view. Still a fun game though.

Mono was the only mode where I really felt like Audio Surf was translating my music into the course in a meaningful capacity.
Hopefully Mono Returns.

@Gunzilla: I think you're missunderstanding people's problem with the ending, very few of the people angrily protesting the ending and all that shit are mad because the ending wasn't happy. There are much bigger problems than happy or not.
There's a good (though longwinded) article about why the ending was bad on GameFront.

Patrick, it's not a polarizing response when the poles are "THIS IS THE WROST GOD DAMN THING EVER" and "eh... it wasn't that bad"

Of the dlc, chances are I'm only going to play Sakura, unless I get real good with Guile and decide to continue my super fun time out victory team with Dhalsim. Otherwise I can replace Guile with Sakura and play my two main characters from SF4.
On the other hand, I am not going to pay 20 bucks for one fucking character and am not buying the dlc if capcom keeps it in a bundle only and no other options.

@Buzzkill: The woman this misogynist was harassing was on his team, he was supposed to be coaching and supporting her. You really should try and read the article.

this is a good article.  I didn't watch cross assault because it sounded stupid, so just hearing about this now.
Being a fan of competitive starcraft and fighting games, aris is the exact reason that it's way harder to recommend a fighting game tournament to anyone. It's very easy to say to someone "Oh, you should watch this TvZ match, it's a really good back and forth set", and it'll be safe to have someone watch it..
You wanna reccomend a fighting game set, you have to stop and think "who was commentating that match, how much racist/sexist/idiotic shit did they say?" It's mind boggling that you have people so profoundly bigoted and stupid that they are, like aris, actually proud of the way the fighting game community treats women. "Hey, if you don't want bigotry you should go play starcraft instead".
On the plus side, it comes as no surprise that Alex Vaille isn't harassing his team, becasue alex vaille actually has allways seemed like a descent human being.

The fact that the vita just came out, and there are features that Sony doesn't think are worth bringing over to America is kind of scary, even if they're right.
Like, if I was someone who was considering buying a vita, this would be a big warning sign not to because it's a step away from a bunch of the games "not being worth bringing over" either.

You've probably allready watched it  by now, but there's a really good quick look up right now with Dave and Vinny that shows a much better example of what the early game combat will be like.
The demo drops you off in a rediculous hard mission.
