  1. Well, you carried the team to 4th basically by yourself. I had a busier weekend than I thought I would, but I'll see if I can do better this phase. Not sure how many ultra rares I'll be getting though.
  2. I'll take the next HTC for Trophisticated Mayhem.
  3. It looks like it has an interesting platforming gimmick. No idea how well it's been executed, but I wouldn't automatically call this trash just because it doesn't give a good first impression with it's graphics.
  4. Hey, I voted for this league in the last poll, so I guess I'd better join before it's too late. Put me on the bench.
  5. I got a couple of these in the last week as well. Lvl 1, no trophies, default avatar. I don't recall getting any spammy messages like this before (and haven't changed any settings or added friends in a few months), so I guess whoever's doing this is getting better at finding accounts.
  6. I decided to go for it and I'm most of the way through one right now.
  7. Hmm, I've never done a trophy guide, so maybe this would be a good place to start. @r4tb0- is right though, after you play the game a little bit it's fairly obvious how to go about getting the trophies. I do understand that it might not seem too straightforward before you start and I would like to encourage more people to play this game since it's free on Plus now.
  8. Final Summary Starting Completion: 94.86% Ending Completion: 88.84% Difference: -6.02% Games played: 10 +172 earned trophies +156 unearned trophies My top 3 games played: Ratings: A/A/A The Rest: Atari Flashback Classics vol.2 (A) God of War III Remastered (A-) Reus (A-) Zombi (A-) Forced (B+) Transformers: Devastation (B) Quest of Dungeons (C) Overall, I had a good time participating in this event, but now I'm really looking forward to focusing on getting the platinum on some of these games (and finishing a few other games from before as well). I've also got platinum #50 coming up soon-ish, so I'll need to think about what I want to go for there. Anyway, thanks to @Hemiak for running this yet again and thanks to everyone else participating. I enjoyed seeing what everyone was playing and what they thought about it.
  9. Game #10: Zombi Game Progress: 17/21 Trophies (79%) Completion: 88.84% (-0.13%, -6.02% from start) And with this, I made it through my 2nd KYC! I'll try to get a summary post up a little later, but for now on to the last review. I picked up Zombi last year on PS Plus and it's been sitting in my backlog ever since. I figured it would be kind of bland based on the name and that I hadn't seen anyone praising the game, but what I found was much better than I expected. Maybe it was partly due to low expectations, but I really did enjoy playing this. It's a first person shooter, but you can also use melee, and of course you'll be taking out lots and lots of zombies. You'll eventually get your hands on a number of different guns and other things (land mines, grenades etc). The premise is fairly simple, but I thought it was done well. I found the story kind of confusing, but it didn't really detract from the experience. The best part of this game was carefully navigating through somewhat-to-mostly dark environments and taking out threats. It was the general sense of suspenseful exploration that really kept me interested in advancing through the game. Here's some gameplay that should show off just that. Closing thoughts: I really liked the environment and overall feel of the game, but I can see it wearing thin over multiple playthroughs (you'll need 3 for the platinum), since there will be much less suspense after you already know how everything goes. My Rating: A-
  10. I remember playing that game too now that you linked to it. I think you're right about Madagascar. I don't really remember if any other countries were that tough to infect, but I also don't think I played that much of it.
  11. Game #9: Atari Flashback Classics vol.2 Game Progress: 19/25 Trophies (71%) Completion: 88.96% (-0.22%, -5.90% from start) I think I mentioned this in the last KYC, but the very first console I had as a kid was the Atari 2600. It wasn't too long before the NES got real popular (I'm sure it was already available at the time I started playing Atari, but it seemed to take new stuff longer to catch on back then). Unlike classic NES games, these Atari games can't really hold their own anymore for the most part. Whereas you can probably enjoy Super Mario Bros 3, Metroid, or Mega Man without much nostalgia, you probably need it to appreciate these Atari titles. There's 50 games in here (41 Atari 2600 games, and 9 Atari arcade games), but you do have to keep in mind that games at this time generally had very little content. A fair amount of these I had already played before, but many were new to me. Overall, the experience of trying out the games was pretty much what I recalled the first time I got a bundle of used games at a yard sale. Most were kind of bad or pointless, some were somewhat interesting, and a few were real gems. Thankfully, as far as trophies go, you only really need to play the better ones for the most part. I really liked the chance to earn some trophies for some of the earliest games I can remember enjoying, especially Adventure. Here's my run of that game for the Stealthy trophy. It looks and sounds terrible now, but this was my favorite game when I first played it. Closing thoughts: I think it's unfair to compare these games to modern games where they will certainly not measure up. Overall though, I enjoyed them for what they are. My Rating: A (with a heavy dose of nostalgia)
  12. I found it very difficult, personally. It's one of those cases where I don't really want to know how many failed attempts it took before I finally got a good run in Hard mode. Looking at the list of achievers, it's clear others had a much easier time than I did or already had experience in the game. Overall though, it's a fun game and it would be a shame to avoid it because of a few difficult trophies.
  13. Megaman Legacy Collection It's six games! And then there's a boatload of challenges (timed speedruns through parts of the games) to do as well.
  14. Game #8: God of War III Remastered Game Progress: 29/35 Trophies (70%) Completion: 89.18% (-0.27%, -5.68% from start) Probably everyone already knows what the God of War series is all about, so I'll try to keep this one short. Action. Bloody gore. Everyone's a terrible person or god or demi-god. OK, maybe I'll go on a little longer than that. The last game from this series I had played was the original on PS2 a long time ago, but the third installment didn't change too much... it still feels like the original just with more weapons and better graphics. I'm not complaining as I enjoyed both games. I started out on Titan (Hard) and found it was a pretty good challenge in places. Just when you start feeling like things might be getting easier, they take a nasty turn instead. Thankfully there are checkpoints all over the place, and once you've seen the enemies attack patterns as well as the general setup, it's not too bad. I didn't quite have the time to complete the game, but I'm close. Here's some combat from the 2nd half of the game, including a nice feature that wasn't in the first game (as far as I can remember): being able to climb on to some enemies and attack others with them. It's pretty neat. Closing thoughts: Very solid action game if you don't mind that everyone including the protagonist is a morally wretched person/god. Nothing too groundbreaking compared to the original, but some nice incremental progress nonetheless. My Rating: A-
