  1. #331- Strike Vector EX Ace of Aces Unlock all Trophies. Already said everything I had to say about it in this KYC post. But it's pretty long, so the tl;dr version: pretty fun flight simulator, and one of the easiest Ultra Rare Plats you'll ever earn. Also, more explosions than a Michael Bay film.
  2. Lol. Yeah, the story left a lot to be desired. And the bots do make it a relatively simple grind. Kinda surprised the trophies are so rare with how short and easy it was. I did run into a random a couple of times, which is the only reason I switched modes. Capture the Flag matches last longer, so I preferred them.
  3. @ProfBambam55 That's at my error, not yours. Seems I put one too many Platinum images in my last post.. I haven't started One Piece yet.
  4. Platinum #331- Strike Vector Ex. Pretty fun flight sim. More multiplayer games should have bots like this one does. Made things so much easier with no one playing. 

  5. Bonus game #4- Strike Vector EX What's the name of this event again? Lol. I was killing it pretty good, and thought I might actually dip under 90% before the end. Now, I'm not so sure.. But here's another bonus review. I didn't get this from Plus. I bought it in a Flash Sale for $3, as it looked pretty cool. It's not quite what I was expecting. I thought it would be something similar to Zone of the Enders, but it's more of a flight sim. But I did still enjoy it, so it's all good. Basically, you fly around in your... jet? I don't know what these things are. Mech might be a better word. At times, you'll be required to shoot down enemies, or fly from checkpoint to checkpoint as fast as possible. Pretty much it. But there are quite a few different weapons and abilities you can equip. There's the Carabine, which ended up becoming my weapon of choice. Basically, fires fast explosive shots at enemies, and requires you to aim. Then there's homing missiles, a gatling gun, plasma rifle, rocket launcher, shotgun, and swarm missiles. Most are self explanatory. Homing missiles follow enemies, gatling gun functions like a machine gun, plasma rifle is your sniper weapon, rocket launcher is similar to the Carabine, but take longer to reload and have less shots per reload, shotgun is for close range combat, and swarm missiles fire missile volleys at everyone in range (yes, even allies). And then there are perks you can equip for faster reloading, more damage, faster firing rate, silent shots, better range, and larger magazines. Then there are special abilities you can equip that take awhile to recharge. The tesla coil creates an electric field that destroys anyone close (and is fricking awesome). Then there's a shield, mines, emp, a temporary invisibility ability called ghost, a rocket booster that makes you go incredibly fast, and nano machines that heal your mech. There are also a ton more customization options available, like changing its color and various other aesthetic options. Single player campaign is very short. Missions take 5 minutes or less, and there are only 15 of them. And the story is so haphazardly thrown together, it might not even be worth watching the scenes. One minute you're on one side, and then fighting for the other side in the next mission with no explanation as to how or why. So, kind of a disappointment there.. But at least it's fun to play. A large chunk of this game's trophies will be earned in the online multiplayer. Which is dead as a doorknob.. Guess you'll have to resort to boost- NO, WAIT! This game has bots! So you can Plat this game all on your own, like I did. Mostly played Capture the Flag and King of the Hill since they're supposed to be the best for XP. Although, I never actually tried the other modes. Capture the Flag is what it sounds like. Get to the other team's base and take their flag, then transport to yours. King of the Hill had you capture a point and hold onto it. All matches are 3-on-3 affairs, so you'll always have a couple of AI partners on your side. I would have rather not had them, when they kept flying in front of my shots and stealing my kills. Points you earn can be spent on customization items or artwork. And you can give them all up at Level 44 to Prestige, which you will be doing a number of times if you want the Plat. The grind for this is not as bad as it may seem when knocking out the miscellaneous online trophies. Once I finished everything but the Pappy 45 online trophy, I used a method mentioned in this site's trophy guide's comments. And using it, you can level up to 44 in just 2-3 10 minute matches. You need the right map to do it, though. Which I'd just create a match and leave if it wasn't Firestorm (should be able to tell from the loading screen instead of waiting for the minute countdown for the match to start), and then vote for Firestorm if it was one of the 3 options. Quitting out if it wasn't. And after all that was done, I went back to single player to complete the challenges. Some of which made me rage a bit, but weren't too difficult to get gold medals on. Just glad they didn't ask for platinum medals, because that would have likely sucked. So yeah, not much else to say. It's pretty fun flying around shooting down enemies, but does get old after awhile. I don't think it's worthy of a , but not bad enough to be a either. I'd put it somewhere in between. Definitely worth the $3 I paid for it. Time played: 10-15 hours? Not really sure. But I think it was a lot less than the 20 hour Plat estimate, thanks to that faster level up method. Trophy progress: 41/41 for 100% and an S rank. P.s. Other than a single F-bomb drop, I don't know why this game has an M rating..
  6. Thanks, and no rush. If we're getting an extension though, I think I'll try to complete a couple more games. Blazing through one that would work for one of the new categories, as we speak. Full list: Make Friends - One Piece: Unlimited World Red 0% Hang out at the Lake - Duck Dynasty Play a Sport - Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends Go Hiking - Assassin's Creed Rogue Shoot Something - Horizon Zero Dawn 23% Make Something - LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Learn Something - Steins;Gate Put on a Show - Persona 4: Dancing All Night Tell a Ghost Story - Get Even Get Tested - Bound Be a Hermit - The Talos Principle Survive - Fallout Shelter 23% Summer Vacation - The Last of Us Remastered Go on a Scavenger Hunt - Unravel 0% Chill by the Campfire - Strike Vector EX 80% Strike Vector EX has some very... hot maps. Lol. And when you or an enemy is shot down, the planes burst into flames. Unravel? It has collectibles is pretty much all I know and why I picked it. @Dragon-Archon I'm glad to see I'm not the only one from Cabin #4 sticking around.
  7. No problem. I'm not in any hurry, and am also a bit preoccupied with KYC. Lol. I haven't played it in 3, so will probably be just as bad. :/
  8. Make Friends - One Piece: Unlimited World Red 0% Hang out at the Lake - Duck Dynasty Play a Sport - Kung Fu Panda: Slowdown of Legendary Legends Go Hiking - Assassin's Creed Rogue Shoot Something - Horizon Zero Dawn 23% Make Something - LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Learn Something - Steins;Gate Put on a Show - Persona 4: Dancing All Night Tell a Ghost Story - Get Even Get Tested - Bound Be a Hermit - The Talos Principle Survive - Fallout Shelter 23% Summer Vacation - The Last of Us Remastered @ProfBambam55 Not sure how to add the image links, but this is what I had. Don't know if I'll be doing the new categories or not, since finishing those last 3 in time might not even be doable. But I might think up a couple if I finish those in time.
  9. You can count me in again, though I'm not sure what I'll be doing for it this far in advance.. I have a number of Vita games still unstarted, though, along with cross-buy games I could play on it. I also forgot all about that Wanted Corps game. I had planned to play that when it went free. You rang? I could pop that cartridge back in, and lend a hand with that. Not sure I'll ever beat the thing... but not having to worry about a server shutdown making something unobtainable is always a plus.
  10. #330- The Talos Principle Platinum strain You have it all! Fun puzzle game. My Day one and Final KYC reviews, if you want more info.
  11. Final Review- The Talos Principle Well, I'm not sure how much more there is to say. Seems to be a common problem, with how much I usually type on day one. :/ Puzzles get very difficult to solve, and I barely solved any of the DLC ones myself.. Really gets ramped up there. Plus, I think my brain was fried from the base game, and I probably should have left it for a later date. Really liked the puzzle aspect of the game, but the story was kind of weird and not all that interesting to me. Not to mention, all the reading of computer screen notes, that I ended up just skimming a lot of. But the puzzles are really well done, and it's definitely worth playing if you enjoy Portal or similar games. There are also a ton of Easter eggs. I only really went out of my way for one, but the faqs I used on Gamefaqs when I got stuck list them all at the end. Portal, Steins;Gate, pictures of kittens, a bunny island, and an actual Easter egg just to name a few. This was the one I found: Anyways, really good game, but Portal retains its title of the best puzzle game. I'll give it a . Time played: Not sure. 25 hours is the Platinum estimate, so guess I'll go with that. Trophy progress: 40/40 for 100% and an S rank. And this is finished too early. :/ Kinda tempted to start another game and continue dropping that percentage, but there's also nothing else I really want to play..
  12. Platinum #330- The Talos Principle. As close as we'll probably ever get to a Portal 3.

      Thanks, guys. :)

       

      @Honor_Hand Yeah, the story is quite different, but the gameplay felt very similar. There are even a couple of Portal Easter eggs, which is where the mentioning of cake can be heard.

  13. Lol. Yeah, sorry about changing my name again. Just felt like going back to my old Trunks fanboy self. Props for trying to keep things going. I'll probably see if I can finish my list. Just finished the final puzzle in The Talos Principle, so should be popping that shortly.
  14. Day 1- The Talos Principle Puzzles, puzzles, and more puzzles. Game has a huge Portal feel to it. The puzzle part of it, at least. Don't really find the story that similar. You wake up in a serene environment, with a voice claiming to be Elohim, saying he created you and this world. You also appear to be a robot. Elohim wants you to explore the world and solve its puzzles, picking up the sigils at the ends of them. But warns you not to climb the tower at the center of these worlds. As you progress, you can read various emails on computers for more information/backstory, and occasionally exchange messages with someone who tries to get you to defy Elohim. The whole thing seems very reminiscent of the book of Genesis from the Bible. Puzzles are pretty challenging, and I've had to look up solutions to a few already. :/ There are jammers you can pick up, which can be used to jam cameras (that will shoot if they see you), stop these little robot balls (that are suicidal and will blow you up if you get to close), or to open barriers. Then there are lasers you have to direct to open barriers, with another kind of robot that won't kill you, but interrupt the laser. So you have to find a way to get the laser to its destination with them not getting in the way (blocking their path with a crate, or using fans to elevate the laser beam). Or, if there's no way to remove them from the equation, sometimes you just need to be quick and get through the barrier before they interrupt the laser. Then there's the recorder ability. This records what you do, so you can essentially create a double of yourself to solve puzzles. For such a small file size, the game looks quite nice. The first world was a green area with trees and grass. And the second one, which I'm on now, is an Egyptian desert. So yeah, I'm enjoying trying to solve as many of these as I can, to the best of my abilities. Don't really have any complaints yet. And one last thing, I may need to be on the lookout for an assassin in my game... @Ezio Auditore da Fir Time played: 7 hours? Trophy progress: 13/40 for 20% and a D rank.
  15. @Ezio Auditore da Fir Reading your review, it seems I wasn't misremembering the voice acting. Honestly sounds like me, except I was actually old enough when it released. I'd watch my cousin play it a lot, but never wanted to myself. :/ Mainly play as Asuka. Don't really have any particular reason, other than I latched on to her in SFxT and have gotten decent at performing her moves. Though my one win against Poopooblast came when I tried someone else, so maybe I'm not so great with her. He has played close to 100 hours, so naturally he's going to have developed better skills. Good luck if you go up against him; you'll likely need it.
