Yeah, the ending is not what I expected. I mean 3 endings and the only difference is the colors of the explosions! What happens to all your buddies, how are they gonna travel in space without the Mass Relays ( all the effort in making difference in the galaxy and star systems... wasted ). Epics usually end in tragedy but this is Mass Effect all your decisions means something in the end not just lazily constructed endings. Worst of all what's gonna happen to Liara, Ashley, Tali and all the other hotties O.O

rumor has it, it was problems with getting the multiplayer to work with kinect that caused them to run out of time. the ending we got was suppoed to be one of several and ea made them release the game prematurely--hence the endings of many colors.

Yeah, publishers - especially EA - usually have the attitude of always pressuring the devs to cash-in quicker.
If the devs complain and tell the public they're being treated the publishers won't publish the games. Sad really. The devs are the ones getting criticized.

There is of course the ever present worry that multiplayer will take away from the campaign side of things. And, while I would initially be nervous about the introduction of such a feature to the God of War series, I'm not that worried. Countless developers have shown me that they can still craft excellent single player experiences while also throwing in multiplayer stuff. Some examples:
Having said that, I couldn't care less about multiplayer, which is why announcements that pertain to this feature annoy me to no end. I get to participate in a bloodbath with my friends? Pass. I just want to see what Kratos is up to. The same attitude goes for every single series listed above. I dislike multiplayer in general and I don't think that'll ever change.
So, no, I'm not worried about multiplayer detracting from the overall experience. Therefore, my biggest worry is that the series will start to grow stale. This is, after all, Kratos' sixth outing. However, from what I've seen and read, the game looks solid so I still have high hopes for Ascension.
