Yeah, I can wait for the next one to reach discounted pricing before getting it as well. Hell, the first game was out over a year before I was even really aware of it. Probably the only games I'll ever bother w/dlc over, though. I'd rather these guys (game devs and whatnot) deliver a finished product than rush out an unfinished one b/c of marketing pressures. They're gonna do what they're gonna do, doesn't mean I have to approve/think much of it. That said, I tend to agree w/mim that ME3 was good until the very end, then punted. I guess it didn't bother me too much b/c I tend to have low expectations for most pop culture media (movies, games) and don't typically get games at $60+ a pop anyway. So, while I agree the game wasn't perfect and apparently promised more than it delivered, it still has replay value nonetheless. As to the retooled ending, I'd only say they should have spent a little more time on it and not made it so much of a slide show as they did (they could've beefed up the part for the assault on London and shown more combat w/former surviving squaddies from #2 even). Shoulda...coulda.... but didn't.
