    What the fuck is going on with my game? Every time I load a game or a new area, I have to wait for all of my powers to recharge, which somehow takes forever. Also, I constantly have to reallocate all 177 of my experience points.
    Seriously, is no one else having this problem? This is really pissing me off. I don't want to have to level myself up every time I do anything. Or wait for all of my stuff to recharge whenever I load anything.

    Try an earlier save?

    You should be fine once probing the planet.

    That's what everyone is pissed off about.
    This isn't something I would call an ending. There is no closure at all.
    I dunno, I'm not really pissed myself, more like disappointed and a bit sad.

    Disappointment leads to anger for a lot of people. Especially when considering this is one of the best story-driven game series there's been in a long time.

    The earliest save I have is a quicksave from the last mission, and it has the same problem. The experience points are still used up, but I doubt that will last long.

    I can't probe it. I've already 100%'d the system but I did it before I talked to the ambassador, but I'm pretty sure there was nothing on Dekkuna.

    I scanned in its' vicinity and nothing shows up and when I orbit it there's no option to land or scan.
    Try talking to the ambassador again.

    He gave me the mission, I walked away for a second, and when I came back I was able to tell him that I saved his planet. Needless to say I was fairly confused.

    So I've been sitting here and a few things popped into my mind.

    Firstly the reapers live in dark space, and in the past they've always gone Citadel > Lock Relays > One system at a time.

    Now assuming that the Prothean empire was much bigger than known space in ME1/2/3 what lies beyond the relays the Citadel Races never activated? And are the reapers going to go after systems connected to them?

    Now Mass Effect is set in just one singular galaxy right. What if there are reapers in other galaxies?

    And I was also playing ME1 and thinking about it, Liara mentions about how you (shepard) have just taken in a single Prothean's experiences, memories, bias. And that her brain would take time to get around it. What if everything we've done has just been Shepard still unconscious?

    Hey, I hear you. Mass-Effect was a sentimental and close thing for my mate and I. Its sad to see this is how it ends. I guess I'll enjoy ME3 for what it is. But that ending.... They were so close, I mean shit. I dunno about you but I was willing to meet Bioware half-way on a lot of things. I was more than willing to meet them half-way on these endings, but to see them how they really are, for yourself? The lack of closure?

    I dunno, call me a big baby, but that hurts

    Thats just weird, try going out of game and verifying/repairing Install using Origin

    I am rather confused, one the codex entries state that pretty much all Alliance and Turian ships use the Thanix cannon on their fighters and cruises, so why don't they use them?

    You recover an Elcor flotilla from Dekuuna's moon. That's it.

    It's just a 4chan troll that is mocking the DLC post from earlier, rather amusing.
    This may come as a surprise, but not everything is a troll attempt. There's this part of social interaction called "jokes".

       While playing I hoped that, in the final assault cinematic, you'd see all the different squads/armies you had collected over the game on the battlefield. Example : that volus bombing team. It never actually appeared anywhere or was spoken about.

    This line posted in the Bioware ME3 ending spoiler thread is, IMO, what should have happened.

       "The Catalyst starts going on and on about how the created will always kill the creator. The most critical moment in the game, and yet, there's no option to jerk that kid up by his holographic hair and say, "Bulls***! Look out there. Geth and Quarian, fighting side by side. Look at the Normandy, look at Joker and EDI. We're making it work. Maybe it will last, maybe it won't, but who the f*** are you deny us the chance to try?""   
    On a related note (also a poster from BSN):
       I think the main problem with the endings is that they can't be explained.
    At the end Shepard comes face to face with his/her ultimate enemy - the StarChild. This entity it is explained is the mind behind the Reapers, their creator, their God in a way. This entity believes that there is a danger in every civilisation that they will create a race of AIs that will destroy the galaxy, bringing chaos to the order. To stop this happening this entity has wiped out every single sentient species the galaxy has ever seen over millennia, turning them into the Reapers, controlling them, bringing order to their existence.

    This entity is ultimately responsible for the deaths of an unimaginable amount of intelligent life forms because it believes that Organic and Synthetic life forms can never get along. this entity is trying as we speak to it, to wipe out everything that Shepard holds dear - his friends, his love, his home, everything, even Shepard himself.
    Faced with this entity, this creature, what does Shepard do? For the first time in his existence he gives in. He does not argue, he does not threaten, he ignores every single part of his being and agrees with his ultimate foe that the extinction of sentient life is OK because of something that may happen. He meekly accepts the choices laid before him for the first time in his life and asks no questions, offers no counter argument.

    Why that happened there can be no explanation for. Unless the writers were drunk, in a rush to finish things off or just really bad at endings because they nailed every single other part of the story.

       Yeah read that too. Complete character assassination is correct.

    "Throughout the whole trilogy, my Shepard was a champion of free will, choice, and cooperation."

    Every single one of the items like that you can find on missions will be available afterwards through Spectre Requisitions, either on your ship or on the Citadel.

    He is awesome, his gun is amazing, and the cut-scenes explain a few, although minor, things about the Protheans. It's definitely not required, but it's nice to have for sure.

       I was hoping for something at the end with Javik. Specially considering he was supposed to be the last voice of the Protheans, and his mission being to have the last thing the reapers hear be a Prothean voice.

       sacrificing yourself to control the reapers was the only, "good" ending? I mean.. If you control the reapers, and you know that the mass relays got completely fucked over. What do yeah do? I mean, you can rebuild them... Right? Seeing as you control them.

    From Ashes isn't really worth actual money. Just look up his conversations on youtube. They're interesting, but very much non-critical.

       even if you couldn't use them to rebuild the relay network, you could just let people hitch rides on the reapers themselves, seeing as they can travel between systems in less than a year.

    ...hell, it doesn't even really matter if you die in the control ending. You could just have someone clone your old body then indoctrinate the body to come back to life.
