 I met Adam Baldwin, got his autograph, shook his hand, talked with him for a bit. I mentioned that I really enjoyed the character he voiced for Mass Effect 2, and I regretted my sadness that he wasn't in the third. He replied, "Yeah, I know. I don't really know what happened, they just never contacted me about the third game. Hopefully I'll be in some DLC or in the fourth game, if they make one." I didn't have the heart to tell him that they killed Kal'Reegar.

they could still make some DLC where you can SAVE him while he is doing that mission and then you could never get that message.

I find this hard to believe. The part about him not knowing what they did to his character. This is adam baldwin we are talking about, you just dont forget to contact him about coming back or not.

Yikes. I thought the reason Kal Reegar was reduced to an email was because his VA wasn't available, but really he wasn't even contacted, ouch.

Kal isn't dead, he obviously used that news article as a ploy and is now deep undercover. That makes sense right?

More to the point, there's a lot of things they need to ret-con right now and out of all of them and email is probably the easiest.

This is almost as bad as the actual endings.

Jayne deserved better. :crying:

Many characters seemed to have died off the beaten path (I'm looking at you twitter). Maybe this is Bioware's way of making this story non-continuable after the third, because they foresaw what having a publishing company that prizes maximum profits at minimum cost does to game developing companies. So, they wanted to make this IP finished for good before it could be milked for even more dirty dollars.

Or maybe I need a new tin-foil hat.

He could always pull a Leliana and come back in DLC.

Wait...

So BioWare did not even bother INFORMING the character's Voice Actor that the character would be killed? W.T.F...

I must mention one thing. I did some very humble (amateur) Voice Acting myself back during college. If my employer didn't bother informing me of something like that I would have risked refusing other offers since I might have thought that my character would still need VO due to lack of information. Good thing it never happened to a professional level in my case. I find that to be very cheap from BioWare, if it's true.

You don't do that to a Baldwin. They're practically national treasures!

No but seriously I was a fan of Adam Baldwin long before it was cool.
How could they just decide not to bring him back. No me gusta.

One can hope, but still finding this a tad hard to believe still.
