Just looked up a guide for this, and it says that the LE threshold for perfect ending is higher now (7800 military strength).

Making good progress through ME2.

Getting the last person for the 1st half.

The game improves on so much from the 1st, but comes up short on a few things.

The “end mission” design makes it seem like less of an RPG.

I also wish they would have kept overheating, rather than “ammo”.

The only other things that bother me still are how I can’t switch my weapons with L1 anymore and how the only way to view the map is by holding L1 or R1.

I shouldn’t have to essentially “pause” the game to see where the enemies are.

re: Mass Effect Legendary Edition Discussion Thread
Just got through IFF on Hardcore. Had a very satisfying moment...

I wanted to see Grunt take on waves of Husks by himself with only range support from Jack & I (I am a Vanguard). I planted Grunt in the middle of room by himself while we stayed on the other side of the room at a distance. The only time I moved closer was at the beginning to activate the Husks. I micromanaged to make sure Grunt stayed on Fortify while Jack & I just spammed Shockwave in the direction of the fight. Watching Grunt yell "I am Krogan" while lowering his head and charging large groups of Husks and seeing them fly off of him like bowling pins was hilarious. Dodging the Scion wave that was coming towards me from across the room was the most difficult part of the fight as Grunt handled his business without ever falling. Once the Husks were taken care of, the three of us took down the Scion in all of 5 seconds.

I tried this same strategy again on the next battle but it didnt work as effectively. The next fights had two Scions and their waves that they shot at me were crossing the middle of the battlefield, so Grunt kept being hit by them and he wouldnt last long. I had to resort back to charging the Scions myself for that one.

Fun battles.

Holding square changes weapons, stumbled upon that accidentally.

Did not know that about the map either - the Map on the pause screen seems always grayed out in combat scenarios - wasn't sure if that by design or not.

IDK it's so hard to allow for custom controls in games, but that's another topic lol.

re: Mass Effect Legendary Edition Discussion Thread
Finished ME2 last night. Completely forgot about advanced training and the bonus power that unlocks as you complete loyalty missions. Realized after beating the game that it never unlocked for me. Went look at my achievements and only a handful of achievements were awarded to me. None of the loyalty missions achievements were unlocked. Apparently it’s a pretty big widespread bug. Just an FYI in case anyone has the same issue. Playing on Series X.

I finished ME2 yesterday, started ME3. God I love this trilogy.

I forgot how short the games actually can be. I did all of the loyalty missions for all of the characters, plus a lot of side missions (like the firewalker missions) and I am about 50 hours in on ME1 + ME2.

I’m on NE2 and just finished the collector ship mission.

I’m doing as many, if not all, side missions. I did every side mission in the original ME1, including the minerals, medals, and matriarch writing ones, maxed out my level, and it still ended up being ~30 hours of gameplay.

Headed for the IFF. Beginning of the end. Always makes me sad to start what I know is the final push in a game…

I just finished ME1. 100%'d that bitch. Pure renegade adept. It's hard to be so maniacal throughout the game.

Also, I imported a level 55 character with max credits into ME2 and it only gave me 146,000 credits?

Someone posted the algorithm they use. It isn’t just the amount you finished with.

It combines level with amount and some element of completion.

I ended up with 660,000, but I literally did everything, including the collection quests.

I don’t like leaving things undone.

I’m going to 100% the entire map on ME2.
