Mass Effect 2 "Megaguide" Now Available

Hey, if you're looking for a hand with Mass Effect 2, these five dudes have your back.


I'm Commander Shepard and this is my favorite guide on the Citadel. 
I'd say that I'm currently around two-thirds of the way through Mass Effect 2, but to some extent, I'm guessing. Along the way, I've found myself wondering about the different choices I made, both here and in the first game. If you're wondering about those, or if you're looking for a hand on any of the game's missions, a team of Giant Bomb users have put together a pretty sweet guide for the game.

Lies, MasterOfPenguins_Zell, macandcheese, Llama, and WallacetheGreat are listed as its creators, and we just sort of wanted to say "hey, nice work!"

Hey, nice work!

Actually, now that I glance through it, I can see that this will be really helpful for finding those random planets that you can actually land on. I haven't run into any of those yet and I've been mining quite a bit.
 
So check out this rad Mass Effect 2 Walkthrough right neeeeeow. Oh, unless you're all worried about spoilers and stuff. It does, after all, tell you most of what's going to happen in the game. Fair warning, people. Jeff Gerstmann on Google+

Wait... You can land on random planets?

<-- scared of spoilerz! I'm less than 10hours in... My amazon collectors ed was delayed by snow!

Edited by MikeFightNight

I went media blackout until I finished ME 2.  And by that I mean avoiding all game related websites.  Oh GB you have not changed;) 
 
Also Jeff, I totally approve of that image description, three stores say that when I walk into them, I still find it funny.

Congratulations to the fine gentlemen who crafted this wondrous piece of literary goodness. Now perhaps if and when I get the game I'll not have to worry about looking around for a comprehensive guide, I've already found one! :)

No, certain planets trigger anomalies when you scan them and those planets have side quests on them.
 
Oh, and briefly glancing over the guide, it looks awesome.  Great job guys.

Sweet we hit the frontpage. /me does frontpage dance

Posted by erinfizz

Holy pete, that's quite the guide. Nice work y'all.

Posted by Kinggi

I really want the guides section of Giant Bomb to be utilized more. Its nice to see such a  large one made for the site. Lot of tools available for people that im sure the Giant Bomb folk are trying to figure out ways to get people to use them.

Posted by BackpackKat

Hey spoilers guys, I didn't want to know about the game guide till I got the game WTF!
Posted by Atomasist

Maybe I'll use a guide for my second play through.

Oh, like in the Normandy crash site DLC?
 
Anyways, this guide is pretty helpful. Major spoilers are covered up.

Lies needs to be put down.
 
Seriously.

Head...fucking...splosion!!!

Posted by Dustpan

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by Claude

Well, I guess I've found a room where I feel warm in.

Posted by Lies

O hai there
 
We plan to hopefully continue to refine and fill in any gaps, but we figured it would serve more people if we could get something out early, even with a few imperfections, as opposed to a perfect product way past the point of relevancy.

That sentence deserves a few points for being-in-itself.

cool maybe now i can find some good places to mine element zero. i've only got like 16k compared to 100k+ of everything else

Posted by Systech

This guide almost bests the Fallout 3 Megaguide. Nice time to put it out though.

Posted by Johnny5

Hey, good job guys! They deserve the credit. Its good to see it getting promoted.

Posted by Jambones

Awesome work.

Posted by Systech

Lies, if you asked me and if I had time, I would have helped.

Posted by Maxszy

Damn...that is quite the guide. Nice work people!

Posted by Mourne

Wow, very nice. Great work, everyone--I'll use it on my second playthrough and aim for 100%/as close as I can get.

Edited by Skald

This guide is officially awesome. 

But -
I've noticed some issues - who do I PM?
Edited by AllanIceman

Good Job Guys!

Posted by debas3r

After just finishing my first play through, I anticipate using this on my second go around for a "cleaner" ending.

Posted by Jadeskye

Good job guys! Much appreciated!

Posted by zyn

Pretty awesome guide!

Posted by Gamer_152

Wow, that guide is huge. Awesome work guys.

@Lies: 
I dont know how you guys find the time to make such awesome guides.
Edited by NoXious

Still missing a bunch of 'choices that affect Mass Effect 2' such as Feros and Shiala.
But a nice guide none the less. My brain > that thing though :p

EDIT: And Samara's loyalty quest can be done without any Paragon/Renegade as long as you read the memo that's behind the bed in the girls room (with the journal).
It'll give an extra when you select "Art", namely her favorite artist and his/her best work.

You can comment on the individual chapters of the guide by clicking the little speech bubble on the right of every chapter title.

A little of topic but my student teacher for history has played and beaten Mass Effect 2. I thought this was pretty sweet.

Posted by Winternet

It's looking awesome. I haven't really looked at it, I just fast scrolled it. I heard it has spoilers. But, it will always be a working in progress. The "choice tree" must be ridiculous. I've played mass effect 3 times to completion. And I never knew that Ashley could go and kill Wrex. The ExoGeni Manager in Feros could go and mount an ad campaign to fund the colony. Dude, that's awesome!

@Lies:  
You guys are now famous GB duders, how do you feel? 
 
Has your life changed in any way? 
 
What is the color of your pee?  
Wait what.
Posted by DanielJW

That's a guide and a half.

Posted by Bhouse563

Megaguide? Why not stick with the theme and call it Giant-guide?

Posted by Duckbutter

i aint seein who you can and cant have sex with and how in that guide. 
 
i wasted much time tryin to get that slut Miranda to have lesbian sex with my lady Shepard only to find out she only does a male Shepard hetero style. 
 
then i accidentally came on to Garrus and i was all "no wait, what!? no! NOOO!!" we need answers to these questions.

Posted by Llama
@Duckbutter: Try ROMANCE
Posted by Hector

Cool. Might glance it at later.

Posted by Jayzilla

what a rad guide. thanks for all the work!

Posted by HaltIamReptar
