There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding the ending of “Mass Effect 3,” if by “controversy” you mean “whining.” And now some fan has decided to…wait for it…drag the federal government into it.
Yes, a BioWare forum user with the chick magnet handle of “El_Spiko” has filed complaints with the FTC and Better Business Bureau for “false advertising.” His argument, as far as we can tell, is this: “Like, BioWare totally promised me this bitchin’ ending to this lengthy, galaxy spanning franchise and they, like, totally didn’t deliver.”
“After reading through the list of promises about the ending of the game they made in their advertising campaign and PR interviews, it was clear that the product we got did not live up to any of those claims,” El_Spiko says. “This is not somethign [sic] I was happy to do, but after the terrible ending that was in no way the product that had been advertised to me and the lack of any kind of response from Bioware/EA to address this, I felt it was one of my only recourses.”
El_Spiko is calling for other forum users to file the same complaint, because dragging a major corporation through an expensive, drawn-out process is how you make sure people keep making video games. The government, for its part, welcomes the new addition to the extensive database of whiny self-centered trolls.
