I’ve made a commitment to not – ever – play Mass Effect 3 purely on the basis that all the furore over the ending has spoiled any meaningful effect the rest of the game might have on me. It might be the best adventure/TPS/RPG in the world, but I can’t be bothered with it – the petitions and forum threads dedicated to letting BioWare know they’ve made the mistake of a lifetime put me off.
Still, EA and the developers are pressing on with that apparently fan-pleasing
alternative extended ending, and it looks like they’re pulling in some familiar faces to bolster the authenticity of the DLC.
G4 are reporting that the talent behind Admiral Hackett and EDI are back, to name but two, with comments from Lance Henriksen and Tricia Helfer. “I’m voicing some more Mass Effect on Monday,” said Helfer. Henriksen’s also down on record as commenting about the ending. “I just did another session with them,” he said.
“They were saying there’s a little bit of a problem with the abruptness of the ending, so we did a whole series of things to add to the end of the game, to live up to the quality they’ve been doing.”
Raphael Sbarge, who plays Marine Kaidan Alenko, is also onboard for more ADR.
