Mode 7 Changes Ending to Frozen Synapse Temporarily

March 23, 2012 -

Developer Mode 7 decided to change the ending of its game Frozen Synapse today (temporarily) to make a statement on BioWare's decision to give in to the gaming community demanding a change to the ending of Mass Effect 3. The new ending, which will be around for a week, adds some crazy fan suggestions including a pony and a dinosaur.

The new ending offers fans the following line, among others:

"This is the ending to a computer game. We don't care if you like it."

Mode 7's Paul Taylor goes on to say that their new ending is not a criticism of BioWare's words or actions related to the fervor over Mass Effect 3's ending.

"This is not a criticism of BioWare or anything they have said / done," says Mode 7's Paul Taylor, explaining the new bizarre ending. "It is an experiment: I wanted to know how this felt. Honestly, it felt like vandalising my own work, which was interesting."

What point? That some video gamers are spoiled little entitled jerks?

Re: Mode 7 Changes Ending to Frozen Synapse Temporarily

For a guy is frequently insightful, you sure are being shallow minded. They aren't being entitled jerks, there are some valid and reasonable complaints over the ending of ME3. And no, it's not the "there's no happy ending with rainbows and ice cream." complaint either. Bioware promised an ending where your choices in previous chapters would shape how the story concludes, but it didn't. Depending on how many war assets you acquire, you get a choice of ending A, B, or even C, if you raise your EMS to maximum. The only difference between even those are the color of the explosion, everything else is identical. That's not really a nuanced ending affected by your choices. It stinks of lazy writing and that's why people are pissed off. Read this article which gives a well reasoned explanation of why people are pissed off.

Re: Mode 7 Changes Ending to Frozen Synapse Temporarily

What fans are wanting is closure.  They want to know that the choices that they made over the course of the games meant something, one of the major promises of the series to begin with.  The fact that some are spoiled/entitled jerks doesn't invalidated that.  If having spoiled or entitled or jerks on your side meant that a side was wrong.... then I believe that humanity as a whole is wrong on every level.

Whether you like it or not, the ending lacked the closure that fans wanted and they are expressing their dislike of this.  What would you prefer?
