Mass Effect: Andromeda trophies promote infidelity, killing lots of aliens

by Ron Duwell | March 10, 2017March 10, 2017 9:30 am PDT

We now have the full list of Mass Effect: Andromeda trophies, and yes, most of them revolve around killing a lot of aliens and upgrading your team into super soldier saviors of the universe. However, these are not the trophies that are getting the most attention.

Instead, many are puzzled by the Matchmaker trophy, one which rewards players for completing not one but three different romance quests. Whether that means on a single playthrough or multiple playthroughs is yet to be known, but we can definitely see broken hearts and heated words in attempting to get that one.

Mass Effect trophies are always fun to get

In my gaming career, I’ve only ever shot the moon once, getting all of the trophies or achievements in a single game, and of course, that was with the first Mass Effect. I joined the perfect 1000 club, as it was called at the time, by beating the game three different times and conquering each objective. I was quite pleased with myself for my efforts.

However, that perfect record was stripped from me with the addition of DLC, which BioWare said I would have to buy and complete if I wanted to ever join the perfect 1000 club again. That’s when trophies and achievements stopped mattering to me. To have tasted victory only to have it stripped away and held hostage by capitalism. No thanks.

This is not what I am looking for when I video game.

Mass Effect: Andromeda will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 28.
