  1. Pretty big update, since I haven't been able to post since this started. I apparently ran afoul of the 25 post minimum rule that was recently implemented. That being said, I'm actually pretty pleased at the amount I was able to accomplish over the last month or so. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (PS3) - 1% Ico (PS3) - 1% Teslagrad (PS4) - 1% -> 29% Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon (PS3) - 10% Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection (PS3) - 16% -> 100% Grim Fandango (PS4) - 0% Life is Strange (PS4) - 0% -> 100% Mirror's Edge Catalyst (PS4) - 0% -> 100% Mirror's Edge Catalyst (Completed) - I really liked the original Mirror's Edge and was hoping this one would be a worthy successor. I felt like it accomplished that. It kept most of the good stuff about the original, and polished it up quite a lot (actual cut-scenes, longer story, etc). I was more than OK with the fact that this plat was significantly easier, as I still haven't earned the original (curse you, Time Trials and Speedruns!), though my thumb was definitely sore by the time I was done. Life is Strange (Completed) - Very good game, and the epitome of the Telltale-style, in my opinion. I felt it had a good balance of your choices mattering, impacting the story without changing the broad strokes of it. The implementation of time-travel was cool, even if it doesn't make complete sense at times. The ending probably evoked the most emotion from me of any video game in recent memory, with the exception of Valiant Hearts: The Great War. Spoiler tag ahead for the ending. Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection (Completed) - This was one of the earliest games I played when I got my PS3 in late summer 2011. After playing for a little while, and then it just sat on my shelf for years. Once I popped it back in, the nostalgia rushed through me again. Many games were much worse than I remembered, but I definitely had fun with a few of them. As an aside, this game is now officially my slowest platinum, clocking in at 6 years, 10 months, 2 days. If I manage to finish Uncharted during this challenge, that'll come in at about 3 months shorter. Teslagrad (In Progress) - Apparently, I had originally started this on PS3, and there is no cross-save capability. Oops. Luckily, I had only played it very briefly and had only gotten two of the trophies, so restarting on PS4 wasn't a big deal. Honestly, I'm having a lot of fun with this game. The puzzles are difficult, without being ridiculous (so far, at least). A few of the areas I've had to look up what to do, but usually that results in me just saying "Of course! It's so obvious!".
  2. Definitely some amazing deals here, and quite a few games I've been meaning to get. We'll see if I can find the money in my budget before the sale ends in 2 weeks.
  3. I've been wanting to play Heavy Rain for a long time, so I'm glad we're getting this. Especially since we just got Beyond Two Souls, which I've also been wanting to get.
  4. Same thing happened to me and I had been wondering what the heck was going on. I had posted in the Summer 2018 Backlog Challenge to join (back in May). I made a little bit of progress, and went to do an update last week, but suddenly I was unable to post. at first I thought the thread had been locked, but I didn't see the usual notice on it, and other people were able to post. That's when I thought maybe I had somehow gotten banned, or something, but I was able to post in other threads. After some clicking around, I navigated to the root of the "Community Events, Contests & "We Plays" and noticed the 25 post threshold. It would be nice if that notice were displayed at the top of the threads, as well. I would also like to mention that this comment is not intended solely to increase my post count, but that is a nice bonus.
  5. I didn't start playing PS3 until late summer of 2011, so my 10-year won't be for another 3 years. For the few years prior to that, I didn't game a whole lot. I occasionally booted up my old PS1 for Legend of Dragoon, Bloody Roar 2 and Jet Moto 2, mostly, with the occasional Tomb Raider or Syphon Filter. Any other game time was spent on PC with StarCraft and WarCraft 3. That being said, my first trophy was: 2X Multiplier! - Little Big Planet 26th Aug 20112:45:24 PM
  6. Basically, I don't have any real firm rules besides earn the trophies myself (I never let anyone else play on my profile) and don't cheat (hack). I will exploit glitches, on occasion, but tend towards doing trophies as legitimately as possible. I'm more than willing to stack games, particularly if I really enjoyed the game, and tend to go back and forth on whether I would autopop trophies (with a legitimate cross-save or something along those lines) or not, but I haven't really had a chance to at this point anyway. I also won't play a game just for trophies if I don't think I would enjoy the game on it's own (My Name is Mayo, et al), though I have no problems playing games with very easy platinums (The Walking Dead, or any of the TellTale games, really).
  7. I have a few of them. Rogue Legacy - Any of the trophies for the remixed bosses, as well as the 15 deaths or fewer run. The Unfinished Swan - Minimalist - "Reach the Watchtower without throwing more than 3 balls." I tried to get this one but just couldn't seem to make it work, even with a guide telling me the exact steps. Granted, I didn't give it very many tries, so maybe I'll go back to it one day to get this to 100%. Hotline Miami - Get A Life - "Get A+ on all the chapters" I'm just not good enough at this game to perfect the combo kills and speed needed for this trophy, so I fear it'll remain ever out of my reach, taunting me. I also still need 60 To Car - "Go to the car 60 times" but that one would definitely come naturally while going for the other one. Limbo - No Point in Dying - "Complete the game in one sitting with five or less deaths" I could probably get this one, but I'm afraid I'd put in multiple hours into a session, only to screw up near the end. Mirror's Edge - Pretty much all the Time Trial and Speedrun related trophies, except Prologue and Chapter 1. They just have too little room for error. Luckily, the ones in Catalyst proved to be much easier, and I was able to get the plat there just a couple weeks ago. And, pretty much any multiplayer trophy in a single-player game. Assassin's Creed, Batman: Arkham Origins, GTA IV. I keep intending to find a boosting session and grind these out, but the multiplayer modes always feel tacked on (in my opinion) and just never appeal to me enough to sit down and play it. It also doesn't help that they tend to have extremely tedious level grind trophies. It also doesn't help that I tend to be a bit more of a solitary gamer and don't care much for competitive multiplayer in general (with a few exceptions).
  8. I think it's not so much that it's free, since there are plenty of free games listed in the store (most of them being free-to-play with microtransactions). I think it's more likely that they intended it as a sort of prologue-demo, similar to the way PT was a demo of the later-cancelled Silent Hills. Also, Sony has that rule about all games having to have trophies, but demos are exempt from that rule.
  9. I'm of a very similar mindset to you. I usually will not buy brand new games, partly because of the cost, and partly because so many games launch full of bugs, many of which can be game-breaking, at this point. I tend to wait at least a year and get the Game of the Year or Complete Edition for around half the price of the base game at launch. I might make an exception this year for Spider-Man and Soul Calibur, but it's doubtful. Chances are I'll pretty much forget about them until sometime next year. As for the newest systems, I didn't get PS3 until 2011, 5 years after launch (and about halfway through its surprisingly long lifecycle) and didn't get my own PS4 until just last year, 4 years after launch.
  10. I can now be bumped up to Disciple, as I have recently gotten the plat for Unity. To me, this has definitely been the easiest platinum in the series, so far, and was actually a much more enjoyable game than I expected. I'm definitely glad I waited a few years to play it, as I'm sure I would have a very different view if it was still the mess of a game it was at launch.

  11. First Played The first PS4 game I ever played was Need for Speed Rivals, on my brother-in-law's PS4. It was a pretty fun game, as I remember it (even if it's not great) and I have been wanting to get my own copy and improve my completion of it. First Bought The first PS4 game I bought was Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Complete Edition, even though I didn't have a PS4 of my own yet, and still only occasionally played on my brother-in-law's system. I have been a huge fan of the Dynasty Warriors game since playing one of the early ones (3, I think) on my friend's PS2 back in the day. I saw this game on a local GameStop shelf with a $20 pricetag on it, while the game was still around $40 or $50 everywhere else. I pretty much had no choice but to get it, and I'm pretty sure it was just a pricing mistake, but the cashier said "That's what it's labelled, so that's the price you're getting."
  12. I've seen these events floating around, and considered joining before. In an effort to tackle some of my backlog, raise my completion rate a bit, and to become more active in the community, I'd like to join this one. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (PS3) - 1% Ico (PS3) - 1% Teslagrad (PS4) - 1% -> 29% Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon (PS3) - 10% Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection (PS3) - 16% -> 100% Grim Fandango (PS4) - 0% Life is Strange (PS4) - 0% -> 100% Mirror's Edge Catalyst (PS4) - 0% -> 100% I figured my list here gives a decent variety. A couple of AAA games, some graphic adventure, and a few games that I started a long time ago (around the time I first got my PS3 in 2011/2012) and need to go back to and restart/finish up. If any of your trophies have impossible timestamps, or you've obtained a trophy that's unattainable, another user can report that on the leaderboards. The staff will then review it, and if they feel the report is valid, that game will be flagged on your profile and it will remove you from that leaderboard (and I believe all other leaderboards, if you don't hide the game on your profile). You can get more information from the following post.
  13. Sign me up for Cactuar Hunter. I have no plats at the moment, but will eventually get around to cleaning up XIII, and play some of the remasters. I do have 100% in A King's Tale, though, so I guess that qualifies me for the bonus award!
  14. I would love to sign up for this. I currently qualify for Recruit + Liberator, as I have 3 unique (4 total) plats and 100% for Freedom Cry (PS4). Platted Games: AC2 (PS3 & PS4) Brotherhood (PS4) Revelations (PS4) I'll probably get a few more sooner or later, when I decide to go back and complete the multiplayer portions and/or start some of the newer game. Thanks.
  15. Sign me up, please Currently I qualify for Shadow Vigilante (assuming only plat is required, and not DLC/100%). Platted Game(s): Arkham Asylum (PS3) Arkham City (PS3) Thanks.
