ME2: It's all about the Money by Padzi ME2: It's all about the Money by Padzi
Full View Please !

In Mass Effect everything was so easy.
It looked something like this:

:iconffplz:- Mai god! I've got a problem. Who helps me?
:icontrollfaceplz: - Hellou random citizen. Ma name is commander Shepard. May I help You?
:iconfacepokerplz:- Yes, You can take out the garbage for me.
:icontrollfaceplz: - *Takes out the garbage*
:iconiconwweeplz:- Thank u Commander Shepard!! *gave 10000 credits*
:icontrollfaceplz: - You're welcome random citizen.


No kidding. My Shepard finished ME1 with over a few million credits!

In ME2 there was a constant problem with cash. I finished the game with only about 50 thousand.


Btw. Hmm, I always wanted to draw Shepard with a pimp cup. :P And maybe Jacob. :P :P :P

Brother I had over half a million without cheats. What are you spending your money on
abdamit Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2015
my shep in ME 1 had allways the maximum money (999999999etc)
leebk201 Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2015
After 2 playthroughs, i was like "screw this, where is my save editor", helped a lot.

I played mass effect 1 so many times to get the ally trophies for the playstation network, by the end of it all I'd maxed out the credits, then in mass effect 2 you have to be... careful with money... so horrible
FieryShorti Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2014
I think you should have been able to bring the credits you had in ME to ME2. Seriously just cause Shepard died doesn't mean her credits should disappear.
malgrumm Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2014
you do get a slight bonus to your starting credits in ME2 if you port over a shep from ME1 who had more than 1 mil credits at the end.........its only 10k i think, not worth it imo. sure it helps a tiny bit at the beginning but it goes away within the first 5 mins of playing.

My Shepard could open his wallet and obliterate reapers with just standing there hence $999,999,999
BloodWolf752 Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2013
yeah, it got to the point where after my third run of ME1, my Shepard could probably wait for the reapers to show up, pull out his wallet and say "Hey, Reapers! surely we could work something out?"

really. Sharon was already rich at the beginning of ME2, as she was lvl 50 upon import and had over 10 million

Oh GOD so true! I felt like a broke smoe in ME2 and 3.
Padzi Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Really? I was rich in ME3.
AzuleneAroma Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2013  Professional General Artist
I bought many guns and fish
Silverwind91 Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
My Shepard felt the same when I jumped to ME 2. In one he had 9,999,999,999 credits and 800 or so omni-gel, at the start of two he has 150,000 credits.
Seracen Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012
Alas, that is what happens when credits take over control of half your leveling scheme.

I know it would never legitimately happen, but it is theoretically possible for you to amass all the wealth in the game, spend it all, and have nothing left over to buy fuel for the Normandy.

Again, not likely [end rant]

Thank You Padzi!
adamiscool Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012  Hobbyist
SO TRUE i had like a mountain of money and no amount of buying could ever get rid of it because you'd do another side mission and get paid again ME2-3 suck balls can't afford anything where the hell did all my money go Damn Reapers -.- WE ARE ASSUMING DIRECT CONTROL OF THIS BANK ACCOUNT SHEPARD THIS HURTS YOU?

I miss being rich in Mass Effect.

So effin true xD
alchemist60 Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2012
There were three "cheats" that I added to the game in ME2: I edited my save to have an extra 2 million credits at the beginning of the game and I gave myself 500k of each resource. Then, I changed the way running worked so that I could run all the time. Those alone made the game a lot more fun.
aaaaceace Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2012
You know I never had money problems in any of the Mass Effect games, my problem was finding enough resources in ME2. It took for ever to find enough Element Zero to do anything.
caporaletravers Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2012
i've watched this for 3-4 times now and i still laugh at the first panel...
sharkoo1 Featured By Owner May 4, 2012
for me I had a hard time getting a lot of money in mass effect but in mass effect 2 I could afford a pimp cup for every day of the week

hahahhaa lol XD

This is exactly how I'm feeling lately in ME2, I had maxed out my credits before the end of my first runthrough and now I almost freaked seeing how many more upgrades there are to buy when I first went on Illium.
AlexandrZaytsevet Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Really? I stacked up on credits because I never used them.
Padzi Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
in me2?
AlexandrZaytsevet Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yep. But I guess that's because I kinda rushed through the story, didn't really see the bonus stuff.
xiShadowWolfx Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I finnished ME1 with the max amount of credits. ME2 I had to make about 50 trips to all the shops to be able to buy everything! :icony-u-noplz:
DevinShadowV Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yeah that sounds about right lol

Stupid ship needs gas in Mass Effect 2, the ship from the first game went the whole first mission to save the universe on one tank of gas, but the new ship needs to stop for gas at every station.

Cerberus just had to go buy a Dodge, didn't they?
Lieutenant-America Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Of course. No self-respecting pro-human organization would just buy an alien-made vessel.

Guitarmasterx9 Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2011

Sithking-Zero Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2011
Heck, I maxed out my avaliable credits by the end of my final runthrough!
Knight-Watcher Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
also resources needed for upgrades... you'd waste money refueling the Normandy and money for probes to recover the resources. Well if it nets you materials for upgrades that's good... still ah the money. Being the workaholic doesn't pay as well as it used especially not for someone who came back from the dead.
