I've heard it's like almost 2 gigs in size. If that's true, that's huge. And it would mean some of the stuff they put in they probably already had saved up. I think they're going to just retcon the indoctrination theory.
Ugh. Bioware was given a perfect "out" with the Indoctrination Theory and didn't take advantage of it. It was something that made perfect sense for the entire series from start to finish and worked beautifully on an artistic level. To me it was either that or the ending (and a lot of ME3) was simply THAT poorly written. With these extended cuts, I now see it's the latter. Too bad.
Yeah, I skimmed through all the "new" endings on youtube, and they didn't even change anything? All they did was tack on some explanatory dialogues to clarify every choice and a fan-service scene of the entire crew together at the end.
I don't think they are doing anything out there a favor with this.
Though, when EA/Bioware is giving out FREE DLC you should expect it won't be anything substantial.
If anything the extended cut made the Green ending even more scary with the human/synthetic zombie look. I was surprised that the game basically portrayed this as the "good" ending.
For me, the series ended with the Red ending with Shepard fighting off the indoctrination attempt and waking up back on Earth. As to what happened after that with Harbinger and the Reaper War? I guess I'll never find out.
So not worth it? . Was my favorite game series ever... thank you Bioware for ****ing us over after 7 years of loyalty . This had a legit chance to be the greatest RPG series EVER and they had to **** up the ending.
