  1. I actually liked every game here, except for the FFVII Remake (only because I haven't played it). But my vote goes to NieR. That game is something else, and just continues to evolve until the end. And then the end itself. Also, really too many hung up on turn based equating to JRPG. Even Final Fantasy has changed from that style. Is it not a JRPG series now? Tales of and Star Ocean also don't have turn based gameplay, and are long running JRPG series.
  2. People keep calling Battlefront II a "shooter." I barely played the shooting modes in that one, and mostly ran around with a lightsaber in Heroes vs. Villains.
  3. #456- Madden NFL 18 Madden NFL 18 Master Congratulations on earning every Madden NFL 18 trophy! Well, it had the same boring grind for 32 wins, one with every team. But felt much easier than 19. Story still needed micromanaging, with little room for error. But you rarely faced godlike A.I., and it was filled with easy QTEs. I really want to watch football, now. Platinum image:
  4. Another day, another Madden Plat. Platinum #456- Madden NFL 18. More noteworthy, 600 URs! \o/ A pitiful amount compared to some, but eh. 

  5. I haven't done extended testing or anything, but that would put him two ranks above, so it might not work.
  6. #454- School Girl/Zombie Hunter School Girl/Zombie Hunter Obtain all trophies. KYC Reviews: Day 1 & Final Review. Kinda surprised by how positive I was in those KYC posts. Lol. This is what I had to say about in my status update: "I don't know what possessed me to go back to this steaming pile of crap, but at least it's done. What a nightmare... Extremely tedious to play through 3 times, play missions again and again and again for weapon drops, and SSS rank every mission on every difficulty. Stay far away, for the love of God. But if you do decide to play it, farm the WNY-P03 [XO/D] Assault Rifle from Chapter 5 before tackling the harder playthroughs. It shreds everything that isn't a boss." Most missions are easy enough to SSS rank with that gun. But it doesn't work on bosses, and doesn't have good enough range for sniper levels. So yeah, some of them were an absolute bitch to do. The Chapter 3 boss fight against 3 zombie girl bosses on Extreme was a nightmare. Need to do it without taking much damage or something, and it took me a lot of attempts. The Chapter 4 boss has to be perfect on every difficulty. One hit, and you won't get the rank. Most of his attacks are easy enough to dodge, but screw that jump attack. Then Chapter 5's isn't too terrible. Rockets stun him, so you basically spam those. Too difficult for me to not get hit, though, so I always killed extra enemies. Those exploding ground zombies can't really hit you, if you keep sidestepping. Long as you don't stand still, they're not really a problem. Might even blow up and hurt the boss. Then there's the final sniper mission.. This shit is so cheap. The zombies will sometimes spawn right on top of the girl you're trying to protect, and you're pretty much screwed if it's the poison round. Shoot them too close, and their explosion hurts and poisons the girl. Hated this mission. But not as much as some maze levels. What are these maze levels? Well, barriers block your way all over, and you have to find the right path to the exit. There's a time limit. And usually a ton of poison zombies.. I hate this status effect with a burning passion. You can only heal it twice, unless you find more health items. Which are RNG drops from defeated zombies. You might get a bunch one run, and none the next. They also explode when killed, and can set off chain reactions. Thought you avoided getting poisoned? Think again when another explodes right next to you. Game can die in a fire, the end. Platinum image: #455- Crossing Souls You've done your homework Congrats, you can now go out and play. A much better game, and was an absolute steal for $3.74. I think my only complaints are the high amount of missables (I was very lucky I like to explore, and got those profiles at the beginning), and a certain section where a character moves like a snail. Makes sense for plot purposes, but having to solve a puzzle that requires him in that state is kind of annoying. But the rest was fantastic. Great soundtrack, retro vibe (loved the animated scenes), good story, tons of great references from my childhood, and fun gameplay. And that ending. :') It's kind of an old school beat 'em up/platformer, with some other gameplay surprises sprinkled throughout. And you have five different characters with different abilities to switch between. It can be somewhat tough at times, but not to the point of me raging at it. Difficulty was just right, even if it got a little nuts and hairy during some boss fights. Luckily, I was usually stocked up on healing items. Too bad it's no longer on sale, but maybe it will be again. Platinum image:

      Thanks, guys. :)

  8. It's there for me. Are you scrolling all the way down to the Ts? This and The Lego Movie game are separated from my other Lego games, all because of that "the."
  9. Getting the 80 score with Devin was such a pain, though. And if you go into the final game with a score of 60, you might as well forget about it. Lol. 5 touchdown drives in a row against those Patriots felt impossible. You also don't have to win a game with every team, so it's much less of a grind. The gameplay also felt better in 20. Possibly the result of going backwards.
  10. #453- Madden NFL 20 Madden NFL 20 Master Congratulations on earning every Madden NFL 20 trophy! Aaah, the good one. There's one slightly annoying trophy in the story mode, where you have to throw 24 passes in a row. If you mess one up, you'll have to restart the sequence. But it's still nothing compared to the stupidity of 19. Between this, Sea of Solitude, and A Way Out, I'm pretty pleased with the $5 I spent for a month of EA Access. Not much else on there I want to play, though. Platinum image: Worst. Platinum. Image. Ever. :/ Should have started a season with a custom coach.
  11. Pat' Mahomes with the cannon, like it was Madden. Platinum #453- Madden NFL 20. This one was a lot less painful than 19, and I actually enjoyed it. If you want a single Madden Plat, this is the one to go for. Shout out to @Mako for helping with the online. :highfive:

    It's kinda weird I haven't played one in so long. Actually really like the sport, and watch it every week during football season. Actually was a very big sports junkie, and watched almost every Cubs and Bulls game, too. But baseball and basketball have way too many games per season, so I have really cut down on those two. Lol.

      Haha, thanks. I wasn't that fast due to the online. Knock that out first, or have another console to do it with quickly, and this can be done in less than a day. Easiest Madden Plat possibly.

  12. #451- Sea of Solitude All Done You have collected all of the other trophies. This might have made a nice Plus game, at one point in time. Kinda similar to things like Rime or Journey. Though it is pretty dark. I went into it thinking it was going to be like those, and was pretty quickly surprised when some freaky looking monster showed up not two minutes in, and said "shit." Lol. The monsters really do look creepy, too. Game calls one a whale, and I think my name is better: scary fish monster thing. You pretty much just explore, and solve simple puzzles. If ever you don't know where to go, pressing fires a projectile that shows you the way. The monsters can kill you, so it's not as relaxing as Journey. That whale swims very fast, and you need to time swimming to the next safe thing to stand on a lot. Or it will toss you up in the air, and chomp you to bits. As I said in my status update, the main theme seems to be dealing with issues of loneliness. I found this interview with the creator an interesting read: link. But this was a pretty neat game. Worth playing and is on EA Access if you have it, or subscribe for a month. Platinum image: #452- Madden NFL 19 Madden NFL 19 Master Congratulations on earning every Madden NFL 19 trophy! I don't want to talk about it.. I wonder if I set a new record for myself with cussing on Discord yesterday. Lol. Such a pain in the ass. To quote myself from my status update: I had done everything perfectly in the story, and then messed up right at the end. Autosave kicked in, and I had to try and perfect the final game against the Patriots. It wasn't happening. Buncha cheaters. .-. Had to restart, and do it all over again. Chose to watch a movie in pieces during the unskippable cutscenes. And then there's having to win a game with every team.. So boring. 😴 To elaborate on story mode, you almost can't make a mistake with the one guy. A single penalty on the second to last challenge, made it so I would have to score five touchdowns in a row against those Patriots. And they're hard to score against. Breaking through the line, and sacking you in a millisecond. Interceptions and fumbles can also lead to failure. You need a cushion going into that game, or you're going to have a very rough time. And the other guy is so easy to meet the score requirement with, so it makes no sense. On my replay, I still got to 80 with him, despite never retrying a single challenge, because I didn't need his trophy. 20 was a lot easier, and more fun. The only reason I chose to play this one. But 19 has me wondering if I want to play anymore of them. 😅 Platinum image:
  13. Foosball is the devil, Bobby Bushay! Platinum #452- Madden NFL 19. What a pain in my ass this one was.. I had done everything perfectly in the story, and then messed up right at the end. Autosave kicked in, and I had to try and perfect the final game against the Patriots. It wasn't happening. Buncha cheaters. .-. Had to restart, and do it all over again. Chose to watch a movie in pieces during the unskippable cutscenes. And then there's having to win a game with every team.. So boring. 😴

     

    20 was a lot better. Only a couple of mildly annoying trophies, and not much of a grind. Still need to finish its online, though. Know someone who's willing to help, but would boost it with someone who needs them if you can catch me before then. At which point, I'll yeet it from my system. :P

     

    Huh? You feel alone? Yeah, I kinda feel alone. Wonder if that feelin' ever goes away when you get old. Platinum #451- Sea of Solitude. Yes, this is backwards. Shut up. :P Finished it a couple days ago, but hard to find the right words to describe it. Read an interview with the creator about it after, and it seems to deal with issues of loneliness. Which is the reason for the NF quote. I've probably felt some of the emotions on display in it (and may still do), so it was interesting to play through. It started out feeling like an anti-bullying message, but grew from there. 

     

    I kinda wanted to figure stuff out myself, so just used Powerpyx's collectible guide as I played through. Had to resort to the video walkthrough a couple of times, though, when I couldn't find one. :/

  14. #449- A Way Out All The Ways Out Collect all trophies This was something I always thought looked interesting, but didn't know who I'd play it with. So, when @snakebit10 asked me, I was down. It was very unique and fun. It often had split screen, so you could see what your buddy is doing. And you have to work together to get past a lot of obstacles. Some stealth, some shooting, some driving sections, some quicktime events. Pretty varied gameplay. Quite a few minigames to mess around with throughout, as well. A couple of trophies were slightly annoying. Like the pull up one. I mashed that button like a maniac, got to 20, and no trophy. Absolutely make sure you talk to the guy first, or you'll have to do it all over again. :/ That was rough on the arm.. Should have broke out the turbo. The baseball one was pretty weird, too. I don't know what counts as a home run, but it took a bit. The story was also very good, with a very unexpected twist. And the graphics looked great to me. Some really beautiful scenery. So yeah, if you have a friend or significant other to play this with, it is absolutely worth it. Can even do so for just $5, since it's on EA Access. Platinum image: #450- Final Fantasy VIII Remastered Lionheart Obtain all trophies Had to be done. The PS1 trio of Final Fantasies are some of my favorite games of all time, and are really responsible for getting me into JRPGs. 7 was my first, so it may always get the nod as my favorite, but this one was also fantastic. It's also coincidentally the first Final Fantasy game I ever bought. The kid next door introduced me to the series with 7, and I decided to not buy the one he had, so we'd have more to play. Megabrain. At the time, the graphics blew us away. And now, well, they're not so great. But I still had a lot of fun replaying it. The story and gameplay are still great, and x3 speed is a game changer. I actually replayed it and 9 on the PS3, actually beating them for the first time ever with the help of walkthroughs. And it probably took me 50-60 hours. With x3 speed, I was at the final boss in under 27. o.O But anyways, yeah, I love this game. Platinum image: Shame the screenshot wasn't in battle..
  15. Platinum #449- A Way Out. Huge shout out to @snakebit10for playing through it with me. Had always wanted to try it, but having no one to play it with kept me from buying. :/ And I still haven't, since I opted to get a month of EA Access instead. $5 to play this and a few other games was definitely worth it. 

     

    And Platinum #450- Final Fantasy VIII Remastered! Getting the rest of those kills took a bit. :lol: Wasn't as close as I'd hoped. But now one of my favorite games from my childhood is a milestone. Time to get some sleep. 😴
