** Pre-release press statements were that playing Multiplayer, and getting their War Asset multipliers, would not be a necessity for those who wished to get the GoldenEnding. However, though ''most'' endings can be achieved without Multiplayer, there are not enough War Assets available in the game to unlock the highest-tier endings. Although the Extended Cut DLC fixed it, the issue remains that the initial promise was a lie.
** Mac Walters, the lead writer, made a statement before release saying that the presence of the Rachni played a major role in the third game or even just in the final battle. In the actual game, the rachni appear in one side mission, and don't appear at all during the final battle or any other time. It should be noted that this statement was made after the game went gold.
** In a rare positive example, Creator/BioWare initially claimed that the Extended Cut DLC would not be changing the endings, but instead expand and clarify them. [[spoiler: While there was definitely a lot of that, it also [[{{Retcon}} changed]] a lot of the more contentious [[PlotHole plot holes]] and most of the SuddenDownerEnding, such as damaging the mass relays instead of destroying them.]] Cue ([[BrokenBase most]]) fans rejoicing.

** While scanning Bryson's office for clues the first time in "Leviathan", EDI performs an extranet search on the term "basilisk" for Shepard. Among her search results is a video game enemy that's getting called "overpowered" on forums because of its OneHitKO attacks - a criticism often leveled at Banshees on the BioWare site.
