Originally, I was going to photoshop Shepard onto the body of Lucy from "I love Lucy", with the words, "Shepard, you got some 'splainin' to do|, but only five of you would get that.

The fight to take back Earth may be long over, but the fight for a better ending to Mass Effect 3 still remains a thorny issue with unsatisfied gamer. Developer Bioware has been hard at work on that slice of extra exposition, and have announced that it will be released, gratis, tomorrow.

Mass Effect 3: The Extended Cut won’t be rewriting the ending to the hit game, but it will be elaborating on some of the weirder and more confusing moments surrounding the end sequence.

Available tomorrow on the big three platforms, The Extended Cut will measure in at a 1.9GB download.  “Through additional cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes, the Extended Cut will include deeper insight to Commander Shepard’s journey based on player choices during the war against the Reapers” Bioware said on their website.

The Extended Cut expands on the endings of Mass Effect 3 through additional scenes and epilogue sequences. It provides more of the answers and closure that players have been asking for. It gives a sense of what the future holds as a result of the decisions made throughout the series.

And it shows greater detail in the successes or failures based on how players achieved their endings.

So for those of you who started a petition in anger, sent Bioware cupcakes or were just plain miffed at the whole ending, salvation is hopefully at hand.
