  1. Thanks dude. It was a tough one. Almost gave out hope. Hope you enjoy 8 and 7R
  2. Final Fantasy X Time to : 115 Hours BE SURE AND CHECK OUT MY JOURNEY TO PLATINUM ALL FINAL FANTASY MAINLINE SINGLEPLAYER GAMES WHICH I'VE KINDA DOCUMENTED FOR YOUR READING PLEASURE HERE ON PSNPROFILES: I had almost given up on this journey to platinum all mainline games. I really couldn't get to FFXII The Zodiac Age because of many reasons and I started having kind of a Final Fantasy burnout and left this journey on hold for a whole year. Enter E3 2019 where Square Enix's conference single-handedly won E3 and re-awoke my FF passion. Seeing VII Remake was so beautiful and hype-inducing; add to that the fact that FFVIII Remastered was announced and I started to get this little itch. I turned on my PS4, downloaded the Zanarkand PS4 theme and put in FFX Remastered. Now, TBH I had heard mixed stuff about it. A lot of negative stuff too, saying that it failed to live up to the Final Fantasy name that the previous PS1 era had built up for it. Having finally platted this game, I can say without a doubt that i don't understand what the negative critics are talking about. FFX is a masterpiece and it is definitely worthy of the Final Fantasy name. Tidus' story was beautiful, filled with ups and downs, wonderful music, great character moments, and awesome turn-based gameplay. Now that's not to say that it is a perfect game, it does has its flaws. For one, since it is only a remaster and not a remake, you can start feeling the dated mechanics like the slow-running and the fact that you can't skip cutscenes even after losing a battle. This was pure hell to go through as I didn't understand the deep mechanics of its battle system up until halfway (everything was easy up until a certain boss battle). Now that said, I could easily signal the voice acting as a negative but I didn't really feel that this was the case. It gets such bad reputation (especially the laughing scene), but to be honest it was very acceptable. I'm positive that back then it was way better compared to other games. Another thing that nearly broke me was the grind. So many people in this thread warned me and i didn't believe them. What a motherfucking depression-inducing grind, guys. I grinded the fastest spheres i could for the blank nodes on the sphere grid (magic defense, even though i had already max) and hit a wall later on when I had to fight the dark aeons because I was so underleveled even after filling out the sphere grid (stupid mistake as i didn't know that the dark aeons would be so powerful), so i had to erase some MD nodes for attack and strength and that added a lot of hours more to the grind. Finally, i'd like to say that this love story between Tidus and Yuna is probably right up there with FF9's love story between Zidane and Dagger as the best ones of the series to date. The ending in particular was so beautiful that it got me teary-eyed with a full orchestral version of Zanarkand, which, along with Suteki Da Ne, is probably one of the best FF tracks of all time. I wish that the soundtrack didn't rely as much on these 2 songs as it did as the other songs were cool too but we just didn't get to hear them a whole lot.
  3. UPDATE: Finally got FFX platinum after that bitch of a grind. I've posted my thoughts on the original post and it was a long one as I felt strongly about this game so be sure and read that if you want.
  4. Small update: I beat FFX and liked it a lot! will give my full impressions once i achieve this baby's platinum, and im close. The grind is killing me though, i'm almost at the end. Still have to fill out the sphere grid (already have everything i need for the level grinds), capture a small bit of monsters to unlock the final one, and get the blitzball league first place for wakka's crest/sigil. I can smell the fucking finish line.
  5. Does it count when you die? She says some lines when he main character dies. Do those count? or has everything she said up until the point when you die get deleted? I just wasted 1 hour on a floor and got killed in the most stupid way possible.
  6. Maybe after i finish all these FF games i could give it a try..
  7. This tip is worth GOLD my friend. Thanks a lot.
  8. I think that's what i'll do. Leave FF12 for last and that way I have extra incentive to get the platinum. Great idea. As for the Tales series, you'd be a legend. Can you believe i've never actually played a single one? Thinking about giving it a try. Good luck if you do end up doing it
  9. Hey all! It's been a year. So long story short FF12 broke me. After getting the platinum trophy in FF7, FF9, FF13 and FF15 (twice), i started FF12 and I just couldn't go through with it. I hate it with a passion haha. I got FF burnt out, but i'm proud to say that im back baby. I'm like 20 hours into FFX and having a blast. I'll give my impression if and when i platinum it, and im SO LOOKING FORWARD to getting the FF8 plat now that it's confirmed to be coming to consoles. I'll keep you all posted. This year's E3 really got me hyped so I'ma finish this journey. Link
  10. there are no trophies for lore markers, there is no trophy for 100% everything.
  11. Does anyone know if ALL skills count? I'm only missing this trophy and some lapis lazuli but i need something ridiculous like 35 skill points still. There are some skills from the Mushin Arts esoteric text that cost like 9 skill points, can anyone who got this trophy confirm if these different ones count? Probably grasping for straws but you'd be too if you'd been fighting the same 4 enemies for 3 hours haha
  12. I want this but literally the exact opposite.
  13. genichiro and Isshin phase 1 are aggressive style battles. you go up to the boss and hit R1, be agressive always. But Isshin phases 2 and 3 are Unaggressive. Ypu should definitely be far away from him until he does the 1 or 2 attacks that leave him open. As you've been 11 hours on him you probably are rushing phase 2 to get to phase 3 so he's hitting you a lot and you have no healing gourds in phase 3. So don't be aggressive in these phases. Bait him out, hit him only when he does the attacks that leave him open, and get used to the lightning jump counter attack which makes quick work of him in phase 3. Doing this approach, I found this boss way easier than Great Shinobi Father at Hirata Estate (lost to that fucker for 5 hours)
  14. I'm stuck on 39 prayer beads and i'm missing one. I have NO FUCKING CLUE where it is. I already saw a youtube video on all of them and i've collected them. The only ones I can't verify are the boss ones BUT IVE COMPLETED ALL BOSSES except for endings and demon (doesn't drop them). Did I miss a boss? I got every ashina castle bead (before during and after siege). At this point what other missable Prayer beads are there outside of Ashina castle? It's driving me crazy.
  15. Rank em guys! It's games that can only be played on a PS4 system so I decided not to include PS3 games getting the remaster treatment (Unless it's a full on remake from the ground up). Also remember that it's tough to play every single PS4 exclusive so there'll be gaps in everybody's list, be respectful. So many great games are coming out this year and next year that this list will surely change with games such as God of War, Spider-man, Shadow of the Colossus, Detroit, KHIII and TLOU II next year. It's a great time to be a Playstation fan!! It's also great that I platinumed each of these games as it's a testament to how much I love them: OLDER VERSION 10. Kingdom Hearts 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue (had to have my KH representation) 9. The Order 1886 8. Until Dawn 7. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy 6. Infamous Second Son 5. Ratchet and Clank 4. Bloodborne 3. Horizon Zero Dawn 2. Persona 5 1. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End Would like to start Nioh and Nier: Automata this year and see if my list changes. UPDATE April 2018: Played Nier: Automata and God of War 10. Kingdom Hearts 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue 9. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy 8. Ratchet & Clank 7. Infamous Second Son 6. Nier: Automata 5. Bloodborne 4. Horizon Zero Dawn 3. Persona 5 2. God of War 1. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End UPDATE July 2018: Played Detroit: Become Human and crossed out Nier: Automata because it is now available on XBOX. 10. Kingdom Hearts 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue 9. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy 8. Ratchet & Clank 7. Infamous Second Son 6. Detroit Become Human 5. Bloodborne 4. Horizon Zero Dawn 3. Persona 5 2. God of War 1. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End UPDATE August 2018: 2 trophies away from getting the Platinum from Nioh. I fucking loved it. Taking Uncharted Lost Legacy out and putting it in at 6th place in between Detroit and Bloodborne. I'd say Bloodborne and Nioh are virtually tied but will give it to Bloodborne because it was a bit more agressive gameplay-wise and i like that the game rewarded you for doing so. Just waiting for Spider-man to see what happens to make the top 5 (please be good Insomniac) 10. Kingdom Hearts 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue 9. Ratchet & Clank 8. Infamous Second Son 7. Detroit Become Human 6. Nioh 5. Bloodborne 4. Horizon Zero Dawn 3. Persona 5 2. God of War 1. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End UPDATE September 2018: Played Spider-Man PS4 and it was everything i wanted it to be. Got the Platinum in 3 days and loved almost every second of it (the grind to get more than a hundred crimes was a bit boring though) Here's my new list, I'm swapping out Ratchet & Clank and putting in Spider-Man at # 3 right above Persona 5 (what a difficult choice though, i see these two games oscillating between 3rd place for a long time) 10. Kingdom Hearts 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue 9. Infamous Second Son 8. Detroit Become Human 7. Nioh 6. Bloodborne 5. Horizon Zero Dawn 4. Persona 5 3. Marvel's Spider-Man PS4 2. God of War 1. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
  16. this is a great list.
  17. Hope you're right. I pre-ordered. Never learn.
  18. oh no. This doesn't sound good. First, Sony launches Dreams early access days before Days Gone launch, then the review embargo lifts only 1 day before launch, which is usually a bad sign. And now Gamestop will allow returns up to 48 hours later? I have a bad feeling about this. Hope i'm wrong.
  19. "Luckily for all fans we’ve have managed to get some exclusive information from our sources on Persona 5: The Royal, Persona 5 S and Persona 5 A. Here’s what we know so far:" That's what it says. It's presented as news as any other exclusive information is. It's literally a scoop, of course they have to present it as true and not as opinion, what are you talking about?
  20. I just got all 18.. I thank you, by the old gods and the new. Valar Avataris!!
  21. Dude what do you mean? he's saying there's a source that has insider information. Even if you don't believe the source that doesn't mean that he can't or shouldn't post about it: They're newsworthy rumors. Weird take.
  22. yeah man. This happens when you raise the social link for her. Keep it at 0 for the ambush lines, then after you have them raise her social link and she will unlock the ability to say these lines. they're automatic i believe.
  23. I thought that I was the odd one out saying Guardian Ape was my favorite boss but reading comments here it appears everyone thought so too. It's just such a cool concept, plus the fact that you cut off his head and think you win to having him just get up and keep on fighting with his head on his hand. PERFECTION. Shoutout to Owl at Hirata Estate, what an amazing fight. He kicked my ass like 25 times till i got good. One of my favorite gaming moments of this generation was beating him at 2 am after 2 hours of losing.
  24. god i remember those fucking silver knights. that was a tough plat. almost gave up.
  25. Platinum # 160 - Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Difficulty: 8/10 Enjoyment: 10/10 Gameplay is king, and there is no better feeling this generation than when Sekiro just clicks. Everyone will have that moment while playing this game, you start to doubt yourself, you don't understand if you're playing right, you get killed a bunch of times because you're trying to play like dark souls. But then you start deflecting and countering, you understand that dodging everywhere will get you killed, you start a beautiful tough dance where you need to be on guard for every single attack, trying to figure out if you should, block, deflect, jump or dodge. You feel in your heart that when you die it's because you jumped instead of dodging, or dodged instead of deflecting. It is truly a mesmerizing experience. The fact that the upgrade system is so good is where the hook lies. The gameplay loop is so rewarding, making you have better posture and better attack which in turn makes you better at the tough combat, as well as giving you extra skills and prostethic upgrades to play around and find your style. And the world-building of this game is legendary. So many beautiful levels, all inspired from Japanese myth and lore. I feel that From Software has been leading to this and I never thought that Sekiro would surpass Bloodborne for me, but it did. And published by Activision no less. I really hope this IP gets a sequel because it truly is a masterpiece of video game creation. I can't stop gushing about it, it has consumed me completely. I'm sad that my journey is now over. Can't wait for DLC.
