N7: Platinum Mass Effect 2 (Week 6-ish)

Welcome to Part 4 of my Mass Effect 2 Platinum Trophy quest! You can check out Part 3 here.

Now I know. Infiltrator is the way to go on Insanity difficulty. Shout-out to Drakulus for the expert advice. I’m loving the cloaking ability and devastating sniper damage thus far. Insanity and Romance… the only two trophies between me and that shiny Platinum.

The Space Dick… he lives!! Mwahahaha 😈

I always prefer to be the righteous hero in games, but it’s really fun being evil once in a while, I’m not going to lie. Shepard’s Renegade lines are pure dark humour gold in this game. I really need that kind of humour these days, lemme tell ya.

Here’s how Week 6-ish went down. I’m pretending July 28th to August 18th didn’t happen in my life, so this covers August 19th to August 24th 2019. I like to keep proper records of my video game ramblings… what can I say?

N7: Platinum Mass Effect 2 (Week 1)

As soon as I Platinumed Mass Effect 1 on June 21st, I ejected the game disc from my PlayStation 3 and inserted my copy of Mass Effect 2. Rolling this trophy quest right along, eh! And, DAMN!! I forgot how freaking badass ME2’s opening is. Wow…

It took me a while to adjust to the combat system changes (especially after having just completed 4 consecutive playthroughs of ME1). For one, the new need for ammo in the form of a cooling clip mechanic was a big change. Cover is also infinitely more important than it was in the first game. Even playing ME2 on Casual difficulty, my Shepard gets shredded if I stay out in the open for too long. Oh and a global power cooldown was another change that was challenging to adjust to.

Anyway, here’s how Week 1 of my latest Platinum quest went down! I’m a little behind on these progress posts but I’m going to try to catch up. Babbling about Mass Effect is what Livid Lightning is all about these days!
