Bioware is releasing a patch this week for their smash hit Mass Effect 3 title that among other things will fix the character importation bug that plagued some of the longtime fans of the franchise.  This bug plagued gamers who created custom Shepherds all the way back in the first game and carried him/her over to Mass Effect 3.  Essentially, the custom face would not import, but everything else would.  I got bit by it, and it kind of sucked, but I was able to create my Shepherd with the character editor, so I got over it.

This bug along with the others listed below will be addressed via a patch today (4/9) for PC users, and tomorrow (4/10) for Xbox 360 and PS3 users.  Check out the details below.  You’ve been wondering how many gamers will make a joke about this patch fixing the game’s endings…
