Mass Effect 3 complainers getting Betty Crocker on BioWare by sending them free cupcakes
Posted on March 27, 2012 by OG

With Retake Mass Effect being taken down, one would think that would end the whole passive aggressive movement by those upset for the ending of the game.  Well it didn't.  A user on the BioWare forums named Logankey has organized a very unique form of protest.  To show the fans discontent over the ending, he asked for donations to send BioWare cupcakes.  That's right.  No anthrax, bombs, or fake poo, just cupcakes.

The plan is simple.  Have a bakery make 402 cupcakes, and split the cupcakes into three colors:  Red, Blue, and Green.  Then the real twist...they're all VANILLA.  Oh the horror!  I wondered if a protest like this would have helped Martin Luther King Jr. out when he was fighting for change.  It took less than an hour, but the Mass Effect 3 complainers were able to pool more than $1000 for the cupcakes.  Man, these guys have way too much money to burn.

Is crowd funding the way of the future?

Absolutely. It gives power to the gamers by letting them pay for the games they want to see.
Nope. Crowd sourcing will be fine for a year or two until too many developers do not follow through with their games and waste our money.
