  1. Control Ultimate Edition: Director of the FBC Platinum # 84 Fun: 6/10 Difficulty 3/10 Review: First Game Platinum' since deciding to tackle my backlog. In the time it took me to finish this game I bought 3 more games so 1 step forward, 2 steps back. Regardless this game was my first experience playing a 4K 60FPS game on the PS5 and graphically it looked awesome. The story captivated my imagination during the early stages and the office setting felt very unique for a game. I must say towards the end the game did get frustrating as the FBC office can be a maze at the best of times. Overall I would say that I enjoyed the story but the Platinum clean up got slightly tedious. I own a copy of this on PS4 as well so at some stage I will Plat this again, but not for a fair while.

What's Next?: There's so many games to choose from, but I am planning to Install the following onto my PS5 over the next couple of days Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order Borderlands 3 Fallout 4
  3. I’m about 23 hours played into my mycareer save (2 different players) both got Drafted pick #1 and neither triggered the Belle of the Ball trophy for being drafted in the lottery. I assume (hope) this will be patched later, but might mean another play through of College etc on a new career.
  4. Just a heads up for your checklist. To reserve posts for future use, lock your thread then reply in about 20 to 30 minutes as replying too soon will merge your posts. I think mods can insert posts if anyone else posts before you do though.

      Mods can't insert posts, or at least I haven't found a way to do it. Just clearing that up.

      That was the old forum software then I guess.

      May have been. The only thing we can do now is remove any posts that anyone makes.

  5. Hello Fellow Trophy Hunters and welcome to my journey to finish "All" of the games I own. (Personal Background) I have been playing games for as long as I can remember and as my PSN suggests I was born in 1995. My earliest gaming memories are playing Mario Kart 64 and Goldeneye with my father, then transitioning into Banjo Kazooie (which sparked my love of platformers) Fast forward a few years and Pokémon quickly became my favourite gaming franchise, with 1000's of hours played across the games I still find myself playing these from time to time at age 25 going on 26. I cannot remember how old I was when I was given my first PlayStation, but I remember sinking hours into games such as Crash / Spyro / Destruction Derby / Coolboarders / Harry Potter / Hot Shots Golf and pretty much any game I could get my hands on. Some time later I was given a PS2 for Christmas and whilst I certainly played this console, less specific games stick in my memory. I remember NBA Street and Need For Speed Most Wanted being the most iconic games from this generation for me, at least those are what spring to mind now whilst writing this. I did not get a PS3 until much later in the life cycle of the console, I remember them being quite expensive. Eventually when my parents purchased a new house, the previous owners left behind their PS3 as part of the sale. This became my "COD" machine mainly as I gamed with then High School Friends, however I did start to venture out into single player experiences such as Godfather 2, Farcry 3 and Bioshock Infinite. When the PS4 launched I was now an adult and working part time whilst studying at Uni. I decided to make a new PSN Profile, buy a PS4 as well as bunch of games I did not get to play previously due to not having money for them and start "Trophy Hunting." I specifically remember buying a bunch of games at our local EB Games (Australia's version of GameStop) and taking a picture of the games I could now buy myself, feeling a sense of pride that I could now afford something I could not afford as well as the fun my hard work was going to provide me... Many of those games in that picture remain unplayed. This trend continued on for a while, whenever I had some spare money and games where cheap I would buy some games to add to my "Backlog" This was the case for both PS3 and PS4 Games and I was buying them much faster than I could play them. Fast Forward 9 Years and Here We Are... In the present day (September 2021) I currently have a game backlog easily exceeding 100 games. I have recently been tackling this fairly well, but my games Wishlist is also growing and my desire to purchase new games is only being tempered by my Mortgage (being an adult is boring sometimes) I am currently Engaged to my lovely partner (who plays games as well but has 0 interest in trophies) and I work full time so my ability to sit down and game for 12 hours a night is no longer possible either, nonetheless I am determined to play all the games I own and experience the fun I intended to have when I purchased them. A Few Notes Before we Get to the Backlog: Each Game in my backlog has a brief description for myself to refer to. This will help decide which game is next. I am open to suggestions about which games to tackle next. If you have suggestions, words of warning or tips based on what is on my list please comment below I do not buy DLC. I Consider a game finished when I complete the Platinum or when I have gotten all trophies that I feel I can achieve. I do not buy games solely for Platinum's / Cheap trophies. (If that is your thing, then no judgement from me, I just personally prefer not to buy those games) I also prefer to own games physically so most of the games on my backlog will be physical. My Current Wishlist will be posted at the end of this post and will be updated as more games I want are announced / made known to me I will post Reviews of Each Game I complete to this thread in the comments. Thank you all for reading, I look forward to tackling my backlog and hope this post becomes an organised way of sifting through it all. Backlog Breakdown: PS3: PS4: PS5 Completed Games: Wishlist / Games I Plan to Buy:
  6. At a Glance seems like a significantly more achievable platinum without the need to collect thousands of cards. Looks like a step in the right direction for these trophy lists. Wonder how hard a few of the Online ones will be.
  7. Do I Personally Like the "Cheap" platinum trophies... No and I make the decision to avoid games that I would literally be buying for no other reason than a quick Plat. Do I Think they diminish what it once meant to get a platinum... Yes I do. But do these things Ultimately bother me: No they don't. Comparison is the thief of Joy when it comes to most aspects of life. Play what you enjoy regardless of if that enjoyment is a 5 minute Platinum or a 100 Hour Platinum.
  8. Congrats!!
  9. Hey mate, bad luck with the Diamond Drops. Stick with it! Also yes diamonds are linked to the difficulty save you have so since you have 4, id stick with the difficulty you're on and grind those last 6 out. Goodluck!
  10. Bumping a super old thread for anyone who might be considering trying / continuing this game in 2020 (like I did). The servers are still working but are a complete ghost town. I was lucky to find a boosting partner external to this site, but if anyone has this game in their backlog / has started this but never achieved the online player trophy, id suggest doing it ASAP as I'm surprised they've kept the servers up for so long. It can be a bit of a drag as it takes about 2 Hours (stoppage time inclusive) to get this done, but you can idle once the game starts which means you really only need to check in towards the end of the games to re-lobby. Although given how dead this game is I imagine I will likely be one of the last achievers of the online trophy and hopefully the Plat. Regardless, yes the servers are still live in 2020. For now!
  11. #66 Ultimate Knack: 5.41% Rarity Difficulty 4/10 Enjoyment 7.5/10 Currently my rarest platinum. This game was not overly hard and I did thoroughly enjoy it. However 5+ playthroughs to complete the platinum did reduce the overall enjoyment. This game cops a lot of flack on forums and the RNG nature of one of the trophies is certainly frustrating, but the sense of achievement for having completed this is greater for that exact reason. I am a huge fan of games in this genre and whilst this may not be as good as some of its counterparts. It is still a solid contribution to the genre. If you are worried about giving this a go because of the Platinum Rarity I would suggest still giving it a try!
  12. I actually Played Knack 2 First! That's what inspired me to go back and play this game. It is definitely a vast improvement over this one and definitely less of a grind
  13. Having Just Platinumed this game, I wanted to share my ironic journey to the Platinum as well as a big tip I wish I'd read before playing to help make the Platinum the "most" achievable for others. I imagine this is a game that a large number of players on here (myself originally being one) avoided because of the Platinum rarity and the flack this game cops in general. I want to preface my review and comments by saying that I absolutely love this Genre of games and whilst parts of this game can be annoying. Overall I felt this was a solid game and pretty enjoyable if you like games of this genre. Anyways lets get down to why I might just be the Unluckiest Lucky Knack Player ever. I have read reviews of people taking upwards of 4-5 Playthroughs to get the 10 Diamonds needed for Diamond Knack. I was Lucky to get my 10 Diamonds by Chapter 11-1 on my Third Playthrough on Easy (1 on my First Run, 4 on my Second Run, 5 on my Third Run) I also got 3 diamonds on my Third Run within 20 Minutes of each other. I know, RNG shined on me and so far in my journey to the Platinum I'd been extremely Lucky! I had read that the best way to grind the diamonds was to open a chest and restart the application if you don't get a diamond as this is significantly more efficient than playing through the game and opening chests as you go, however after doing this for about 2 hours and getting no diamonds, I just decided to play through the game here and there and chip away at the diamonds... and as you've read, I certainly lucked out. Now a BIG TIP I wish I knew before playing this game is to always take a gadget part over a Gem (Unless you get a diamond of course) These carry over during playthroughs, but unlike gems once you have a part unlocked you cant get a duplicate. The sooner you get all of the gadgets unlocked, the sooner you reduce the pool of items that you can get from a chest and in turn, the more likely you are to get a Diamond from a Chest. It seems super obvious but I didn't find this tip anywhere on this site so hopefully it helps someone. Now for why I might just be the Unluckiest Lucky Knack Player Ever With Diamond Knack unlocked, I blitzed through my hard Playthrough and started to work through Very Hard. On my hard playthrough, with Diamond Knack now unlocked and no gadgets unlocked I got 7 Diamonds. 7 Diamonds on my first playthrough after Diamond Knack was already unlocked. I was genuinely annoyed. Then came the Very Hard Playthrough, By Chapter 13 I did not have the double sunstone gadget despite opening every single chest to that point in the game. This gadget would've made this playthrough significantly easier, instead the game decided to give me 8 Diamonds... 8 Diamonds on another first playthrough, when I didn't need Diamond Knack. The Irony of all of this was hilariously frustrating and I think I might be the only person on the internet who is annoyed they got too many Diamonds on this game. 25 Diamonds all up across my playthroughs and 15 I wish I could give to those who needed them more. Anyways that is the story of my journey to the Ultimate Knack Trophy. I hope you enjoyed reading my story and if you are on the fence of picking up this game. It is certainly more doable than the platinum rarity suggests and for what this game is, it doesn't deserve the criticism it gets from most (at least in my opinion)
  14. Looks like an awesome list that I am keen to grab when I finally get my hands on a PS5 Hopefully it is as fun as the first game, can't wait to swing through the city on next gen graphics!
  15. Crash Team Racing I plan to go back and clean up all of the other trophies I can, but I just do not have the skill to chain the drift boosting. I spent hours practicing and just can't get the hang of it. I actually think I'll have a much better chance with Crash 4 than CTR, but I've made my peace with not having that CTR Platinum.
