Platinum Mass Effect 2 Question

4 replies 69 views Edited Feb 21, 2011

Does Kasumi: Stolen Memories, Project Overlord, and Shadow of the Lair Broker count as DLC for Mass Effect 2, because i completed Project Overlord early in the game and I either wasnt good enough or it was too hard to disable the VI in insanity, so i lowered the difficulty for a little bit until i could get past a certain point and moved it back up to insanity. Will I still be able to get the platinum trophy? Because if they do count as DLC, than i know it won't matter cuz DLC does not count for getting a platinum.

Unfortunately, no.  You have to complete the game on Insanity without changing the difficulty setting.  Maybe you'll get lucky and the game won't detect it because it was within the DLC.  I wouldn't get your hopes up though.

I'm currently running through on Insanity but I am planning to skip Project Overlord if at all possible. I'm not sure if they count as optional content as far as the Platinum Trophy goes, but if you've already gone through it and changed the difficulty then I'm fairly certain you're out of luck.

Yeah man you're out of luck, but to get the insanity trophy you don't have to do overlord, shadow broker, etc. If you just want the insanity trophy, you can just do a quick speed run and not do any loyalty missions to get to the end as soon as possible

Unfortunatly thou if you change the difficulty on the game you wont get it! it says so for the requirements. but good luck on your next attempt! And yes that VI was a beast on Insanity.  Photobucket
