  2. Platinum #208: Dokuro

     

    Been a long time since I earned a platinum for the Vita. The last game was Forma.8 which was in October last year. Abandoned the Vita for a good number of months due to playing almost exclusively on the PS4 and PS3 consoles.

     

    The story is basic but it's not that bad. You are a skeleton who is under a curse that has to escort a princess across many levels. A being known as the Dark Lord wishes to marry the princess, but as a former prince yourself you will not allow that to happen.

     

    Dokuro is basically a 2-D platformer with an emphasis on puzzles. There is nothing overly difficult in the puzzles but after the seventh or eighth stages in the game I decided to just look up a video walkthrough to speed things up a bit. There are 16 total stages in the game with over 150 levels in all. This game definitely felt a bit too long, and it took me around 15 - 20 hours to platinum.

     

    I very much think Dokuro is either a game you'll like or a game you want to avoid. I had a hard time getting into this game because puzzles aren't really my cup of tea. The visuals, while somewhat unique, didn't draw me in all too much. Controls are basic, while some touchscreen is used for a couple particular enemies and for making platforms and lighting barrels on fire.

     

    Every level is timed, with many levels taking under a minute if you know what to do. Some of the longer levels towards the end of the game can take upwards of four to five minutes because of the puzzles involved, but thankfully the speedrun trophy was pretty lenient. Most of the kill based trophies were easy, with only the 1000 kills trophy taking a bit of time to grind out.

     

    The toughest trophy I had to tackle was beating the Dark Lord without taking damage. None of the bosses were all that difficult and after a few attempts they show rather predictable patterns. I cheesed the trophy for beating stage 14 without taking a hit, because it is basically a boss run.

     

    The cutscenes were a nice touch and the game ends on a good note. Overall this was a neat little 2-D platformer that I wish could of been a bit shorter. I'm happy this is another game I bought two - three years that I can cross off the backlog , because God knows I have enough damn games still sitting on my bookshelf collecting dust.

  3. Today
  4. Recently I changed my photo on sites that are open and that I actively comment on to the one I use here.

     

    Someone asked if my image was Serah Farron from FF XIII on a YouTube comment I made.

     

    I've never laughed so hard.

  5. Figured I would try the 7 day trail of PlayStation Now, now I can’t decide what I should be playing.

      Base the service off of a game you know well that's offered. That way, you can gauge the reliability and quality of the service when comparing off your known experience.

  6. You realize how old your DVD is when it promotes PS2 on the back. :D

      Take me back to the good old days.

  7. After Dokuro and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, I'm thinking of a few games that I really want to get around to, but nothing too difficult as to bang my head against.

     

    While I can rush through XBlaze Lost: Memories, Amnesia: Memories and Code Realize: Rebirth in under a week, I'm not exactly sure if these games really appeal to me since I'm not really a fan of anime, hentai type stuff. Dead Space Extraction and Prince of Persia (2008) are possible but unlikely I will get both done before the end of this month.

     

    Resident Evil doesn't and probably isn't all that hard, but I know very little of the series apart from the original Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2. Assassins Creed III and Batman: Arkham City I will get around to eventually. Super Meat Boy is the only 'difficult' game I want to do right now. Numerous other games I can play and finish in under two weeks, the question is am I willing to go through with them.

     

    All that being said I think the hardest thing for me and my general weakness is simply starting up a game and sticking with it. I left a few games I did not too long ago due to their difficulty, including Vanquish which frustrated the living shit out of me with Challenge 4. But even easier stuff like Assassins Creed I'm having an increasingly hard time just sticking with the damn games.

     

    Unfortunately after four years of Flash Sales and buying a game for every four or five games that was offered for cheap that looked appealing, I'm starting to regret the backlog I own.

      The struggle is endless and real. Was hoping to get a plat for my BD, but don't think I have much I can finish on time.Might start another game. 

    2. Copanele

      I would still have recommended sticking with Assassin Creed 3 since you have already covered that stupid multiplayer on ps3 version. I don't know, i found that running around the Frontier forests is the most relaxing thing to do in an AC game. You don't even have that much left to complete in that one, other than learning Faronora / morris. That or prince or persia 2008. They are chill enough, perfect way to get a break from those insane capcom arcade games. 

      Alternatively you could repick up ac4 and complete the multiplayer portion if you fancy. You might find the perfect game to approach while falling asleep in wolfpack mode.

      @MidnightDragon Same.

       

      @Copanele Assassins Creed III is only one I've finished out of many games I have that have online required for platinum.

       

      Just to give a list....

       

      Games with online I have yet to finish:

       

      Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag

      Assassins Creed Revelations (PS3 version)

      Far Cry 4

      Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell

      Driveclub

      Driveclub Bikes

      Watchdogs 2

      Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

      Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

      Just Cause 3

      Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

      Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor GOTY

      Middle Earth: Shadow of War

      MLB 18 the Show

      The Last of Us Remastered

       

      I'm only taking into account games I want to play and platinum and finish. Grand Theft Auto V isn't considered. I won't bother with the multiplayer DLC especially considering the PS3 Uncharted's are no longer obtainable.

       

      Most of these are pretty easy, but a couple have grindy multiplayer.

       

  8. Just need 2 more magazines and the Detroit Platinum will be ready.

     

    It requires me to play a couple of chapters though so I will finish them off tomorrow.

    1. Spaz

      Spaz

      I have the game on Plus, but I'll be playing through Beyond: Two Souls first because it's an older game.

       

      Detroit pretty good? I enjoy a good interactive drama like Until Dawn every now and then, but they're not always my cup of tea.

      I found if you play and get the good ending (which I did on my first playthrough) then it is a very good story. The bad endings...not as good.

       

      There is a twist (which if you don't see it coming then you need to get your eyes checked) that is completely stupid and (in my opinion) hurts the story...if you get the good ending.

       

      There also was not enough focus on the world. We get a bit of glimpses of it at the beginning but then it goes into the deviant storyline and we drop things that could have been interesting to explore (the fact that having androids caused mass poverty, drug abuse, population decrease etc). 

       

      I mean I get that it is an allegory for how we use machines now but I felt we could have use a few more chapters before the deviancy started.

  9. Morning. ugh hate it when i pot a status and it shows me my previous status again instead of a new one. didnt noticed, looks for me like 2x night now, bt you dont even see the 2nd night, odd bug here, lol

  10. Welp got the 100% in Festival of Blood, now I have every trophy in the inFamous series.

  11. Hi I need help.  I just logged onto PSN profiles and tried to update my profile.  I had to wait 4 minutes because apparently someone else updated my profile about an hour ago.  Anyway, the website is saying that I have ZERO trophies.  I tried troubleshooting on the ps4 (making sure that i had no games checked as "hidden) but it didn't work.  Is this a known bug, or did someone hack my account and nuke it?

  13. Following you now bro

  14. So my next PS4 game will be A-Train Express. Then either Raven Remastered or Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters. What do you guys think? Ghosts or Ravens?

      Toyko Twilight Ghost Hunters. I don't anything about either, so I picked the name that sounds cooler.

      I don't know about the other game but The Raven was decent and I enjoyed it ;)

      Not familiar with any of the games expect Tokyo Twilight so my vote's for that one.  But you do you, dude!  Whatever you wanna go with. :D

  15. Crash team racing hard mode beaten.. Sweatfest much this is so hard.. Can't wait for the oxide trials which I probably never beat :")

  17. @panikooooos What do you think of Boris' Brexit deal, buddy?

    1. panikooooos

      panikooooos

      I skimmed through a few articles, it looks promising for the most part, from what I understand this is just a small step towards the Brexit goal, he still needs votes in order to pass it, which is weird as hell, it should have been done like 3 years ago when the people voted for it. He did a way better job than May for sure but I'm seeing some problems, with Northern Ireland for example. They say they will stay under EU regulations, but also not have a hard border with Ireland, and also after 4 years (wtf?) they will be able to vote and choose if they wanna stay in the EU or not 😬. So if I got this right, essentially this whole thing kind of undermines the Union, which in turn means the Dem Unionists will vote against a Brexit, which kind of defeats the whole point of a Brexit deal between the EU and Britain if a single party can just ruin the whole thing :popcorn: Hehe it's confusing as hell, maybe I misunderstood some bits here and there but I think I got the gist of it and things don't look as solid as they should, hoping for the best and looking forward to reading your take on this 😄



  18. The Extinction Rebellion fools in London got exactly what they deserved.

      Watching Idiots get rightfully beaten up is one of the greatest joys in life.

      wait, what are they protesting that they needed to get on top of the rails?

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      @ruffedgz They're protesting about climate change. 

       

      The cause itself is great and I'm all for a greener planet but their methods were counterproductive and just downright silly.

       

      Firstly, targeting public transportation which is arguably one of the best ways to travel in terms of reducing one's carbon footprint is pretty stupid. Secondly, if you think it's okay to delay people trying to get to work, then you're a dick...

  19. Here we go. Yet again. Final Fantasy X-2 HD. SO MUCH FOR THE ETERNAL CALM. Well... that's true and also not true. It's hard to explain honestly. But I'll try my best. lol. How is Yuna & the rest of the Gullwings choosing to handle this? How am I doing on my Perfect Ending 100% efforts? Whose the true villain? Come find out. If you want. lol. Stream will begin at around 5:30 p.m. EST. https://www.twitch.tv/animedamage

  20. Good afternoon Japa lovers :D

     

  21. I just found out about the game called Stranded Sails and it releases digitally today on consoles but physical next month. I'll be waiting for the physical version since I'm really loving from what I've seen. It reminds of that time waiting next month for a physical version of My Time at Portia! :wub:

  22. Going through all of my PS4 games, both digital and disk. So far I made all the way to the letter J (going alphabetical). I am doing my free trial of psnow this week though; already got the Goosebumps platinum for Halloween and now I am working on Agatha Christie. I like those crime solving type games. I may not have time to do The Raven Remastered like I planned, or I may finally get God of War Ascension hard mode playthrough done. Don't think I can manage both because I was having a really hard time with God of War last time I played. Then after I will get the platinum in Jak and Daxter Precursor Legacy and then start Just Cause 4. I may need to hurry up and get everything on my profile as the goal is to have it all up before next year including PS3 and Vita.

  23. I stopped playing Spider-Man a few months ago to focus on my next game review. When I eventually went back to it I found I started beating everything I had difficulty with like it was nothing...

  24. Trophy #10.000 and Platinum #227: Tales of Vesperia. Lets rock the next 10.000 😄

      Nice choice. Congrats on reaching 10k!

  25. So I picked up Spyro: Reignited the other day. I was really looking forward to it, it was finally on sale. But... I really don’t like it 😔 The monotony, so incredibly boring. I doubt I will ever get the flying missions done, I hate them. And what’s with the respawning enemies, jesus I was just here...

     

    Right now it is looking really unlikely that I will finish even the first game (let alone plat), or even try the second and third. I am definitely parking this game for now. 
     

    *sigh* I guess I am still looking for something Ratchet & Clank-esque to play...

    1. AuroraHistoire

      AuroraHistoire

      It is probably the for best the best that you don't play Spyro the Dragon ever again. It would be nice if you earned a trophy in the other two games; to make the other game's platinum a little rarer.  

  26. Going live with The Witch and the Hundred Knight!
