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!
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.
The vast majority of Mass Effect 2’s trophies are earned simply from completing missions, meaning I was able to claim A LOT of them during my first playthrough. During Week 1, I finished the “disabled” Collector vessel main mission (ZOMG I forgot the Collectors are Protheans!!), recruited everyone except Thane and Samara, did a ton of planet scanning, and knocked out two loyalty missions.

Really like what you read and feel like financially supporting Livid Lightning? HA! Probably not, but hey, here’s a couple ways to fuel my writing pipe dream!
My name is Ellen, and I've been babbling on the interwebz about video games for over 15 years. Video games themselves have been a large part of my life since 5-year-old me first encountered a SNES in a children's hospital. Fun times... Video game escapism is still the #1 coping mechanism for adult me these days.
