- About Us
RetakeMe3 is refocusing its efforts on helping the community. After the issues with Child’s Play what were some of the concerns of associating yourself with an established charity?
The main concern was that most charities would not want to associate themselves with a “protest” group. We don’t want to put anyone else in the position of having other donors threatening to stop contributing to a charity just because they disagree with us. We also don’t want anyone to be contributing to charity for the wrong reasons. We give to charity to help make the world a little bit better, not to further our own ends.
The goal of the Retake movement is to get a more appropriate ending for Mass Effect 3, but that doesn’t mean we can’t do some good along the way. The Retake movement has put a lot of emphasis on charity because it allows people to vent their hurt and frustration in a constructive way. Looking back we want to be able to say that we did ourselves proud, and didn’t just get lost in the mass of random internet rage.
What is the game plan in the next few days for RetakeME3?
For right now the Retake movement is bidding its time, and taking things slowly. We still have enough faith in BioWare to wait for them to make their announcement later in the month concerning ME3. We are working hard to keep people focused on the movement, and to keep morale up. A few of us are also working on a few side projects (such as the new fundraiser group), and planning contingency plans for whatever response we receive from BioWare.
Here is what is going to happen over the next few days for the new fundraising group:
1. A name will be chosen, and people will be introduced to the all new Gamer based fundraising group.
2. People will be invited to join so that we can show potential charitable partners the numbers and eagerness we have to offer.
3. We will be contacting our known associates in various charities and non-for-profits.
4. A charity will be chosen and announced, and supported for a set amount of time or until a specific goal is reached.
PAX is just around the corner. Will RetakeME3 be at the event and is there anything planned for the first public event for BioWare since the release of ME3?
There will be many members of the Retake movement at PAX we want to make sure people know that we don’t plan to give up, and that we aren’t going away. All Retake members that are going to be in attendance are being reminded to remain polite, civil, and respectful. We don’t need any negative press. We will keep the pressure on BioWare, but we will do it in an organized, professional way.
