  1. 100% Game #19: Red Dead Redemption Difficulty: 5/10 Excitement Rating: 10/10 The game. The legend. The first trophy I earned on my account was back in January 2013. My second model PS3 Slim felt fresh and snazzy. Red Dead Redemption would be the first game I would add to this account, followed by LA Noire. From 2013 to mid 2015 my account was mostly one I just logged on to have some fun. In February of 2013, Jagex would announce that Old School Runescape would be officially released. I played that game from March 2013 until September 2015, finally deciding to call the game quits after over 3000 hours invested into it. That isn't to say I didn't touch Red Dead Redemption for so long. In early 2013 I did the main story, saw John Marston get killed at the end, and ended the epilogue with Jack Marston. The bulk of my time was spent on RDR Online, pouring hundreds of hours into it. The Xbox 360 version in comparison was a bit better, as it had higher resolution and the online felt better thanks to Xbox Live Gold membership. Fast forward to 2016, and I was already going for platinum trophies in games I enjoyed. Since I loved this game so much back when it came out, I felt it would be a shame if I were to leave it without a platinum trophy. So I did some boosting with a fellow friend on PSNProfiles, earning the platinum trophy in December of 2016. Because of bad internet, I decided to leave the rest of the online DLC alone, even though I did a chunk of them at that point. Over four years later, in 2021, I wanted to go back and finally wrap up the online for good. I took advantage of an active boosting group on the PS App. To my amazement I got everything I needed done in a little over a week. It was perfect timing on my part, because I had a group of very reliable people that were helpful. There were 16 of us in a free roam session doing Kingpin on a Saturday morning, each of us taking turns and communicating to each other that we got the trophy. As far as the game itself, it needs no introduction. We all know what it is, so I don't need to discuss what made it awesome. My last PS3 game I will be boosting is Assassin's Creed Brotherhood. Sadly, it's not nearly as active as Red Dead Redemption, then again, the online isn't nearly as good either. Regardless, very proud to have this game fully complete, and while it was a little fun communicating with fellow boosters, it invokes a lot of stress within me, so it's something I tend to avoid for the most part.
  2. Just installed the system update. Everything works fine. No issues that I'm noticing on my end.
  3. I'm just being honest. I'm not here to gain support or have anybody upvote my posts. I'm checking my PS3 as I'm typing this. EDIT: Just turned on my PS3 and I got a notification about a system update.
  4. The harsh truth of the matter is the PS3 and Vita are one step away from life support. Sony is trying to kill them off. Just because they lifted the closure of the PS3/Vita stores doesn't mean they aren't trying to stop support. I will be doing a massive PS3/Vita backlog cleanup very soon. I suggest every single one of you who still has games left on these systems to go through them as soon as you possibly can. Absolutely nothing is safe on these consoles anymore. The fact you can't even track people playing on them on the PS App or even see your friends online on your PS4/PS5 who are still playing these older consoles is proof Sony is phasing them out. The last thing I need to hear is somebody claiming some of us may be banned from using our old consoles because of shit like this. In the past, PS3s were banned because someone was using CFW on them. Despite the distaste and hate I have for Microsoft, this is one category that they're actually doing right. Sony was always shit when it came to preservation.
  5. Platinum #266: Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime (January 15th, 2021) Difficulty: 4/10 Excitement Rating: 6/10 Estimated Time to Platinum: 8 - 10 Hours Hardest Trophy: Probably the easiest ultra rare platinum I have gone for. You are in a spaceship trying to.....spread love? The story made absolutely no sense, but it's largely irrelevant. You control a spaceship. Your goal is to capture a number of friends in the form of bunnies, all crying for help as the hostile creatures of space try to bring your ship down. Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime was designed around co-op, but from experience I can definitely tell you this platinum is easily possible solo. You have weapons, shields and your engine. Each of these, including the Yamato cannon can be upgraded with gems, which give them enhancements. When you capture 5 out of 10 friends, a heart shaped portal opens up and you can reach the next level. But why do that when you have to rescue all your friends for the platinum? Rescuing friends also helps you upgrade your ship, which becomes of vital importance in the later zones even on Easy difficulty. I had some fun with this game, but nothing was too memorable. There was nothing that I felt was annoying or difficult, although a couple trophies were very much luck based. This is an easy platinum, no more than a 3 or 4 out of 10 in difficulty despite the fact that it is an ultra rare. This is definitely a game that many people picked up and stopped playing because of its niche status, and also because it was a PlayStation Plus title. If you want an easy ultra rare for your trophy collection, you can't go wrong with Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime.
  6. I'm sure you're aware, but for those who aren't, we're referring to Breakthrough Gaming Arcade and shameless trophy whore games that offer no real value, neither in gameplay nor in trophy lists. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is still a high quality game through and through, but it received a less than adequate trophy list.
  7. I have to say all you guys are right on point here. I'm not asking there to be a Wolfenstein II Mein Leben like trophy, or something as challenging as doing all those no death levels in Super Meat Boy. But given how even Ratchet & Clank 2016 asked you to do a lot more for the platinum, whereas Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart has you doing maybe 20 percent of the actual content, this is definitely a sign trophies in general are becoming more like participation awards. It's a sign of the times. The games that really offer any real excitement and challenge for me anymore are those indie games that offer up some challenge and have more original ideas. Housemarque games in recent times have helped filled that gap of being actual challenge. Nex Machina I've been playing a little lately and it is a fucking blast. Accessible enough for modern audiences, but has enough challenge to where only the truly committed will go for the platinum. As much as I want to play Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, I'm definitely going to wait for a discount.
  8. So this is by far the easiest Ratchet & Clank game. Challenge Mode was practically half the fun, and I definitely don't see the trophy list telling you you need to do a New Game Plus walkthrough. Even Spider-Man: Miles Morales had you doing New Game Plus. As much as I love Ratchet & Clank games, I'm sort of..... disappointed in the trophy list. Unfortunately I'm dead broke, and getting your hands on a PS5 right now isn't all too easy, unless you're willing to shell out $1000 for one, which I outright refuse to do.
  9. Sony is trying to kill off the PS3 and Vita. That's the harsh truth here.
  10. 10/10 I normally don't rate people a 10 out of 10 as there is usually something holding them back, such as okayish completion rate, too many easy games, etc etc. But you have a very impressive list of fighting games, especially Super Street Fighter IV and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. Those require a lot of time as well as a lot of skill, because from what I gathered from those trials you have to input moves within 1/60th of a second, which is utterly insane. You got stuff like Metal Gear Solid 2 that I'm jealous of. Anything I should expect out of this game?
  11. Street Fighter V. After everything I heard about the time and effort it takes to reach the Golden League, I'll probably be better off not going for the platinum in it.
  12. That's pretty late I must admit. I had my second shot at the beginning of May and I was by far the last person in my family to get my second COVID-19 vaccine. Haven't been reading much since I've been deliberately avoiding news regarding anything on COVID-19 as much as possible. Perhaps you Canadians are handling the pandemic a little differently. Unfortunately for some people here who live in hellish countries like Venezuela, there's no real vaccine for them. I definitely feel sorry for them.
  13. One of the few Call of Duty games I actually want to play. Now if World at War were to get a remaster, I might piss in my pants.
  14. I'm going to ask a question that's been answered 1000 times, but how long does the online take?
  15. Easier said than done man. In my experience of dealing with modders and hackers in online games, most of them are just going to hand you stuff anyway, or have such an uneven playing field it is virtually impossible to win without cheating yourself. I'm just going to say that in all honesty, this trophy isn't worth the time and effort. But if you are truly desperate and willing to do anything, then you can just try your luck on public free roam. I strongly, strongly suggest getting everything else in private free roam, then once you've done that, then take your shot at getting a bounty placed on you. Doing this first and foremost runs the risk of getting a bunch of trophies to autopop because of the hackers. This is an automatic flag on this website.
