Mass Effect 3 Petitioners Raise $27k For Child's Play Charity
Even the biggest messes can turn positive.
The recent ugliness concerning Mass Effect 3 has prompted a tidal wave of editorials, features, and opinion pieces, either supporting, denouncing or merely questioning the outcry.
As some of you know, petitioners against the apparently terrible ending(s) in the game have created an online petition to make their case; ultimately, the goal is to appeal to developer BioWare. Essentially, the fans want a new climax. But you know, kids are gonna benefit: A few of the petitioners have formed a donation drive, with the combined purpose of drawing attention to their cause and donating to a charity. It's the Child's Play charity and in less than 24 hours, contributors have raised $27,000 for Child's Play...and no matter what your stance, that's impressive.
To learn more, visit the Retake Mass Effect - Child's Play website. This will run through April 11.
"The Retake Mass Effect - Child's Play donation drive is a community driven effort to bring positive attention to our petition for an alternate ending to the fantastic Mass Effect series. The Child's Play charity was chosen as a charity started by gamers to provide video games for the patients at Children's Hospitals all over the world.
We would like to dispel the perception that we are angry or entitled. We simply wish to express our hope that there could be a different direction for a series we have all grown to love."
So there you go. Discuss. :)
