I’m shamelessly stealing the Mass Effect Month article series created by the always awesome Athena over on AmbiGaming in 2017 (which was the Mass Effect 10th anniversary) and turning it into one of those 30 day challenge thingys! Definitely check out Athena Veta’s great content on AmbiGaming and consider supporting her Video Game Relevancy Crusade (TM) on Patreon, if ya got a few bucks to spare.
Please Note: Enjoy… but be warned that there will be unmarked SPOILERS for all of the Mass Effect games. Read at your own risk!
Today’s Mass Effect series question: What is your least favorite mission/loyalty quest/side quest?
I enjoy 99% of the missions in the Mass Effect series so it’s hard to pick a least favourite. Hm… Actually, it’s not. Got it!
This may be because I’m in the middle of an Insanity level Mass Effect 2 playthrough for my crazed PlayStation Platinum Trophy quest at the moment (must… obtain… shiny… trophy…) but I’m picking the side mission called N7: Eclipse Smuggling Depot.
Gr!! This mission absolutely sucks on Insanity difficulty (hell, even my easy playthrough Shepard died once or twice doing it). Basically, you have to take out a whole group of YMIR Mechs before they can destroy 20 crates. It’s a bit of a painful process taking out a single YMIR Mech on Insanity difficulty (they have shields, armor, AND health). Now I have to take out a bunch of them while on a time limit?? No freaking thank you. It takes a lot for me to give up on a side quest, but this one is just NOT happening on my Insanity run, eh. I’m trying to be kinder to myself these days.
