N7: Platinum Mass Effect 2 (Week 3, 4, and 5)

Welcome to Part 3 of my Mass Effect 2 platinum trophy quest! You can check out Part 2 here.

Ugh! Technology. Unfortunately, my capture card failed to save a ton of screenshots from the last part of the game, but at the end of Week 4 I had completed Ellen Shepard’s easy playthrough, leaving my evil Space Dick Shepard with the task of earning 2 trophies to score the shiny platinum.

I also enjoyed the hell out of the Shadow Broker DLC that was included with my game! My only complaint about Mass Effect 2 is that Liara isn’t a companion character, but the DLC lets you spend some quality time with her at least. Did I mention I love Liara? Because I do!! Ahem.

I love these characters so much!! 😭

On Week 5, the Insanity Renegade playthrough began… sorta. My ol’ Space Dick Shepard (1st version) didn’t get very far. I wanted to keep him as an Adept, staying true to the wicked asshole I created in Mass Effect 1. Unfortunately, being an Adept on Insanity level Mass Effect 2 is a huge pain in the ass and required more patience than my depressed brain could handle.

Here’s some of the highlights I was able to recover from Week 3, 4, and 5! This period covers July 7th to the 27th 2019.

UNC: Platinum Mass Effect 1 – Complete!

I did it!! After 4.01 playthroughs in about 4 weeks (or to be less technical: 4 full playthroughs and a tiny bit of 5th one to get to level 60) I acquired the Mass Effect 1 Platinum Trophy on Friday June 21st after that annoying IRL work thing. Woot! Look at me achieving unimportant gaming goals I have set for myself.

And It couldn’t have popped at a weirder time… At least Ashley was nearby for a congratulatory hug, eh!

And yes, I’ve already claimed most of the trophies in Mass Effect 2 (I’ll just say social isolation is great for achieving gaming goals). Keeping with the theme of this Platinum quest post series, here’s some of the highlights from the last two weeks of my Mass Effect 1 Platinum quest.

Mission: Finish Fallout 4 in March (Failed)

So, I said I’d do the follow up post to the #MaybeInMarch Mission sometime in April… I wasn’t planning on it being this late in April, but eh, here we go! Ahem.

As the title of this blog post implies, I did not beat Fallout 4 in March (unsurprisingly) BUT I was super happy to see a few bloggers out there contribute to the event. Here are the participant posts that caught my limited attention. If you contributed something and I didn’t catch it, definitely let me know. I’ll remedy that and include a link to your content as well.

And now I shall babble in detail about what I did actually do in Fallout 4 during March. I’m happy to say I’ve platinumed the game last weekend (#AlwaysApril FTW). Yes. My posting timeline is all over the place these days…

Also: HUGE FREAKING SPOILER WARNING for anyone who hasn’t beaten Fallout 4 yet and wants to. You have been warned.
