BioWare Gets Cupcakes...What Should We Get Square Enix?
Okay, so it's probably never going to end. Despite BioWare saying they'll try to address fan complaints about the ending fiasco, the fans still think they need to be heard.
And so, as revealed at the official Retake ME3 website, the ardent followers raised over $1,000 so they could send 400 cupcakes to BioWare's Edmonton offices. No, seriously. They did. 96 people donated and the organizers explained:
"As fans, we want Bioware to do right by us, and fix the endings for Mass Effect 3. But we also want to let Bioware know, that we trust them, and have faith in them. Bioware has been slammed by negativity from all sides in the last few weeks. This is our way, as fans, to drive our message home, but in a (literally) sweet way. We want Bioware to add some more 'sweet' to their 'bittersweet' ending. What better way to do this than with CUPCAKES :-D."
Well, isn't that...sweet. Now, what do the Final Fantasy fans get for Square Enix? We don't want a new ending for a particular game, we're not even sure what we want, but perhaps old-school fans would all agree on one big-ass cupcake that reads: BRING BACK SQUARESOFT! ...you know, or something to that effect. It's interesting to note this backlash from the die-hard Mass Effect fans and compare this to the bitterness of Final Fantasy fans throughout this generation. Perhaps the ME fans can be described as a good deal more whiny, but they're certainly determined.
So who wants to set something up for our good friends at Square Enix? We'll send them something fun, but it has to have a message. We need to all agree on that message; perhaps a FFVII remake? A FFXV that actually feels like both a role-playing game and a Final Fantasy? No offense to the ME followers but if the FF fans unite, imagine what could be accomplished...forget the damn cupcakes, we'll raise enough to finance that damn FFVII remake! Well, all right, maybe not, but you get my drift.
