Game Informer Reports Bioware is taking a break from Mass Effect

Don't expect DLC

Basically EA ruined a great company, got rid of all the good quality writers, brought in Social Justice panderers who couldn't even do that right (see trans character reception in DAI), and then after the newbs produced poor reviews, shifted them off to other studios to do some soul searching.

At the risk of sounding like a naive optimist/apologist, I'll wait until there's something a bit more concrete than some 'unnamed sources close to Bioware' to start worrying

And if it does turn out to be true? Well, as much as I enjoy the game, a bit of time to reassess things might well be a good thing. I'm more inclined to blame EA for the technical issues, as the patches suggest to me that had they not rushed Bioware to get it out, it might have been a lot more stable, but there's definitely some writing and content issues that are presumably all on Bioware.

(The Kotaku article cited in the Game Informer link mentions that ME:A was made by a team that had only done DLC before, which would explain a lot tbh.)

Why even nerf guns in a PvE game?

I guess they thought if they just slashed the credit rewards people would notice.

Because they want people to use different weapons I guess. It was to the point where the Vanq in MP is the best weapon in any situation and it was stupid to take other shit.

Altogether, this was an incredible update for MP. It's viable to do something other than melee spam. Man, I've said this a lot about the game, but I can't believe they released MP as it was.

So ... what EA's been doing for decades at this point? It's not like this is the first time they've bought a company that was producing solid content and proceeded to run them into the ground.

So finally taking a break off Persona has got me to come back to this.

Hitting Hunting for the Archon now, doing all the sidequests first.

I still genuinely like this game, honestly disappointed if the news of the series being halted is true. Yes, the dialogue is weak the story so far has been a tad cliche but something about the game charms me. I hate the loading times, can't do one of the missions on Kadara because the latest patch made the whole section unstable but something about it makes me want to keep playing all the way through.

I wouldn't go that far. The difference between 1.05 and 1.06 is 90 damage. Still really good, it's just that it's not miles ahead of every other weapon in the game anymore.

No need to be dramatic. EA been doing for decades. The SJW wasn't them though.
