  1. Another small update, this time not a platinum but two completions! #33 The Walking Dead: Season 2 (PS4) December 14, 2017 (9:26 PM) I have yet to play Season 3, but if it's as good as Season 2 was, then I'll be itching to play it! This season really upped the ante I felt and replaying it showed me how much more the choices impacted the story this time around. My wife especially loved the game, especially the twist thrown at us in the second episode and was devastated near the end of the season, especially after realizing that there were numerous different endings this time around. Still, it was a great story thematically and we both really enjoyed it. #34 Battle Trivia Knockout December 15, 2017 (7:46 PM) Truth be told, I purchased this mainly because I love trivia games. However, I wasn't a huge fan of it and shelved it, only realizing later that the trophies were simplistic and easy. However, while looking for games to complete my "Twelve Days of Christmas" challenge on Truetrophies, this one popped up. After getting most of the trophies on one run, I decided to take the extra 15 minutes to complete it. Overall, still kind of a meh game though (I much prefer Jackbox).
  2. Hello everyone and I hope you're enjoying the holiday season! Hopefully you guys are progressing well on your holiday preparations (if you celebrate). I've got another update and this one is a big one: five new platinum trophies! #65 Steins;Gate (PS3) December 2, 2017 (7:27 PM) I got this one on a flash sale around May but I didn't give it a serious try until last week when it was mentioned that the platinum trophy is an easy one (which I'm trying to quickly accumulate so I can get the reward and earn a $10 PSN card). And though the intro didn't capture me the first time I played it, after playing through the first couple chapters, I was hooked! This is easily one of my favorite visual novels ever and was extremely well written. I've always been a huge fan of time travel ever since I saw Back to the Future in the 80s (and further cemented by one of my favorite games Chrono Trigger) so the interesting perspective this game takes along with the real quantum science drew me in instantly. The characters were awesome and I truly ended up enjoying this one quite a bit more than I expected to. If you haven't played it give it a whirl. #66 Steins;Gate (Vita) December 3, 2017 (10:05 PM) Having double dipped on the game during the sale, I decided to fire up the Vita version. I was quite shocked that the Vita version wasn't as compressed or chopped up as I thought it would be (it still looked and sounded nice). But having just finished it on PS3, I managed to speed run this one and complete it in a few hours (but thanks to me halfheartedly trying it in May, it counted as a six month completion). Still awesome, check it out if you can. #67 Lara Croft Go December 4, 2017 (1:07 PM) This is another one I bought on a whim and ended up enjoying more than I thought I would. This one is also now my fastest platinum trophy, clocking in at 3 hours 17 minutes. While the grid based gameplay took some getting used to (I'm not a huge fan of the isometric view), I actually enjoyed some of the puzzles and the game did keep that Tomb Raider feel to it, despite being locked onto a game board-esque grid. Having to find hidden pots was also a neat idea but some of them were almost impossible to find (hidden in the far background or behind rocks). While the game was almost too short, I enjoyed my time with it and I may play this one with my wife later on (who enjoys puzzles and brain teasers). It did remind me though that I have to go back and finish Tomb Raider. That game was epic. #68 Hitman Go: Definitive Edition December 4, 2017 (5:44 PM) The Hitman series was one that I don't have a huge amount of experience with, having only really played Hitman 2 back in the PS2 days. However, the series is interesting and I loved the concept back in the day, I just unfortunately haven't played many of the games in the series. Hitman Go was, however, on sale at the time I bought it and though it doesn't accurately reflect the gameplay, it's still an interesting game. Like Lara Croft Go, it's more of a puzzle/board game and I really liked that each level had separate objectives to complete, such as "kill everyone" or "don't kill dogs". Still, I think I liked Lara Croft Go a lot better. The rotating map throws me off big time and makes me have to stop and readjust to the surroundings. I can't tell you how many times I was chased by a dog into one of those sections, only to accidentally move into them (or a guard in general) and have to restart. Still, for a game that was initially designed for mobile phones, it was fun and an interesting take on the franchise. #69 Teslagrad December 4, 2017 (10:32 PM) Three platinum trophies in one day is a new record for me and this is the game that did it! Thankfully though, I got this game for free on PS Plus because I didn't enjoy it much. The concept was pretty interesting (using magnetic energy to traverse and solve puzzles) but the physics felt way off. Seriously, there were numerous times I'd jump into a field thinking I was gonna rocket up only to crawl upwards at a slow pace (or even worse, fall and float downwards). There were also times I'd barely hit the button and fly upwards. A lot of the collectables were a pain in the butt to get too, such as the one that requires you to shoot yourself up onto a block and jump onto a magnetic platform and pull it to the collectable or one that requires you to dash as you're flying upwards to land on a ledge. It is interesting though having a game's trophy list exist solely based on collectables. Still, this game pushed me over the 10 platinum mark so as soon as Sony catches up, I should have 1000 rewards points!
  3. Happy Thanksgiving and Black Friday to everyone! I hope you guys got your fill of great food and great deals. I know I got a few new games this holiday that I can't wait to try out (Wolfenstein 2, Forza 7). Also, it was a good couple of days as I got two platinums! Yesterday, I obtained the Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 and I got another one today! #64 Catlateral Damage November 24, 2017 (10:28 PM) This game was one I picked up very cheap on a flash sale and I ended up really enjoying. Having had numerous cats throughout my life, this one was quite funny and a great simple "cat simulator" that tasks you with knocking down as many objects as possible. It was humorous, filled with cat photos and puns and lots of little nods to cat owners, such as chasing lasers or smacking around toilet paper rolls. While it's generally regarded to be an easy platinum, I took my time and enjoyed the game. Just one thing though: why couldn't I knock over the Christmas tree? I can't tell you how many times my cats have done that!
  4. Another platinum update! This one is for the second half of the Lego Harry Potter collection on PS4! #63 Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 (PS4) November 23, 2017 (3:49 PM) Another Lego game! I remember playing this when it first came out and really enjoying it so I was looking forward to revisiting it. And truthfully, the updates from 1-4 was really nice. I liked the ghosts that showed you area totals so you know where a missing student in peril or collectable is located and it was slightly less glitchy overall (though in my case, it was glitchy but in a beneficial way, counting extra gold bricks for some reason). Also, what was up with "Year 8"? *checks title* I realize that Year 7 part 2 sounds weird but better than adding bonus years. Meh.
  5. Could you update my platinum count? I've got three more now and I'm up to 19/31. I got the plat for Lego Worlds, Lego Dimensions and Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4.
  6. Another update and another Lego platinum, this time the PS4 version of Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4! #62 Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 (PS4) November 17, 2017 (9:01 PM) This one worried me a lot to be honest. The game was notoriously glitchy on PS3 and Xbox 360 and when I completed it back on 360, I had to replay it 3 times to get the completion since it glitched numerous times. The most worrying was when I was 4 gold bricks short of 200, knowing I had explored every cranny of Hogwarts. Thankfully, I found the four in the basement of the Leaky Cauldron and managed to get this trophy. Onto Harry Potter Years 5-7!
  7. Another update! I've finally put in all of my platinums into the thread but I still have to add in my 100% completions and my goals. Meanwhile... #61 Lego Dimensions (PS4) November 8, 2017 (4:07 PM) This game is the ultimate Lego game and the ultimate mash up. Sure it's very pricey to pick everything up but there's a plethora of awesome licenses here. Back to the Future (voiced by Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd), ET, A Team, Lord of the Rings, Ghostbusters, Beetlejuice, the list goes on and on. And they actually interact with each other, such as Doc Brown mistaking Scooby for Einstein or Sonic telling the Ghostbusters he has a creepy doll that needs an exorcism. The additional stories were also some of the longest levels I've played in a Lego game (Sonic's took me over 2 hours to beat) and each additional character unlocks a hub world to explore or additional abilities. Plus building and rebuilding the awesome figurines is a really cool touch (having a miniature Lego Delorian is awesome). The thing I really like about it though is being able to pay studs to rent a hero to get the collectables so you're not completely locked out by a paywall. I still have to finish the last two story packs but I'm certain I will continue to play this for a long while just to experience the overwhelming amount of content in the game.
  8. While I'm still updating and adding to the lists (unfortunately I spent the better part of one morning finishing this but accidentally erased it by closing the tab), I've obtained my first platinum since opening this topic! Thanks to Wdog-999's "Let's Play Neptuina!" series which I am an active participant of, I now have my 60th platinum trophy: Cyberdimension Neptunia! #60 Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online November 7, 2017 (6:58 PM) When I first heard that they were doing this, I had imagined Neptunia meets .hack or Sword Art Online and that really caught my interest, enough so that I pre-ordered the game. What it ended up being was an action RPG version of Hyperdimension that took place in a fake online world. I really liked that you could choose to play as any of your favorite characters, each with their own skills, class and gameplay style and I did like the shift to action RPG, which made it way more fast paced. There was still a lot of fan service and it seemed more blatant this time around (including a 'weird camera angle') which was something I wasn't big on. The game was really short too and the story was pretty meh but I did enjoy this game and it was a pretty fun spin off.
  9. Just got the plat for Cyberdimension. Can I get "The MMO That Isn't Really an MMO" trophy?
  10. Thanks! Yeah, I love the series and I really hope they keep making them after the movie bombed. I still have to go back and finish All for One and Full Frontal Assault though. And yes, very much so lol. Thanks for commenting!
  11. Big thanks! I really appreciate the feedback! I still have to finish the Sly series but I'm loving Sly 2!
  12. Hey everyone, I'm Tomotakino and I've been a gamer since I first played an Atari 2600 back in the 80s (and got my own NES in 1990). Since then I've loved gaming of all kinds shapes and sizes, though my favorites tend to be RPGs, platformers and adventure games. I'm a completionist at heart so trophies (and achievements) naturally clicked with me and I tend to go after them as best as I can. However, I do love gaming not just for trophies (I'm a big fan of retro and Nintendo in general) and I'll often jump back and forth between games. Because of this, my backlog will probably be limited to games I'm currently playing through or planning rather than a complete backlog. I also enjoy playing through games as a series, both to appreciate the evolution but also for continuity (and if I enjoy a game, I'll likely check out the rest of the games in the series). I'm also a huge fan of the Lego games as you can probably tell from my profile and I tend to play through all of them. I know I've had limited exposure on the site (I'm pretty shy) but from lurking and from my limited interaction everyone here seems fantastic and lovers of gaming and hopefully this will be enjoyable. I decided to create this checklist both to remind myself of the games I've played and the journey my profile has taken but also to share my thoughts on the games I've completed and keep myself more focused on the games I'm attempting to complete. I was originally an Xbox focused gamer who occasionally played my PS3 but switched to PS3 around 2012 after picking up a few cheap exclusives and really enjoying myself (and further cementing it after getting my PS4). While many of my games are rather easy completions (predominately due to me moving on to something else if I get stuck) and this list pales in comparison to most of the players, I hope you'll enjoy it irregardless. Also please bear in mind that my hidden trophies are not truly hidden but are still affected by the PSN trophy glitch that started in August 2016 and that includes one platinum.
