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.
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.
WARNING: Lots of !!!SPOILERS!!! below. Stop reading and scrolling if you don’t want the Mass Effect trilogy ruined for you. You have been warned.
