  1. Platinum Trophy #45 Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Prizes, Plunder, and Adventure! Win every trophy. Seems like I managed to finish this one up fairly quickly. Overall, this game was much more enjoyable to plat than AC3, even considering the grindier MP trophies. The SP experience was much more entertaining to me than that of AC3 and, while I still prefer a couple design choices of the old Ezio trilogy, so far this has been the first AC game that had me finish almost all of the optional content before finishing the story. The ship gameplay was surprisingly fun, considering that the naval missions weren't quite my favorite part of AC3 but I felt like the story was lacking compared to the previous titles of the franchise, especially the present day half of the story. I ended up liking Edward as a character much more than Connor, though. Surprisingly enough, the most tedious trophy requirement wasn't the grind to MP level 55 but rather playing all game modes once, since the handful of active players seems to dislike playing anything but Deathmatch and Manhunt. Thankfully, after about two hours of trying to start a Dominion match, I managed to assemble the four players required to start a game, only to have two of them leave during the starting screen but I still got the trophy. Seems like the game counts a game mode as played as soon as you select a character to play as. In the end many chickens were fed during my journey and now have a place to live as pirating poultry in the newly liberated Caribbean. I'll likely take yet another AC break before tackling Rogue, though, as these games tend to get boring when played directly one after the other.
  2. Requirement 1: AC4: Black Flag. There are chickens running about on some islands and after a huge mind numbing grind I'm almost done with the MP trophies. Requirement 2: I had quite a hard time deciding on a favorite after spending way too much time listening to all of the songs over and over again. Turns out that the ESC doesn't quite cover my taste in music. In the end I found Australia and Portugal to be the funniest entries. Mostly due to the Australian entry featuring someone in a dress that's likely taller than the house I live in as well as an impaled background dancer flailing about like he's in pain and I guess I don't have to explain Portugal, I've got no clue what's going on with that entry but me and a friend of mine were rolling on the floor. (Since when is Australia a part of Europe anyway?) My award for the most dramatic song is a tie between Georgia and Albania. Iceland was... interesting? Not quite something I'd like to listen to but it's unlike anything I've ever heard before. I can't get Norway's entry out of my head but I guess I'll end up casting my vote for Spain since I like the simplicity and the language.
  3. Sorry for taking this long to report back but I've been very busy over the last couple days. Sadly my experience during this event hasn't been all that great because of certain crash issues but overall I've had a great time and I've actually finished almost all of my Vita games by now. I'm especially glad I got around to PSABR when I did because I didn't even know the servers were shutting down before it happened. I'm also glad that I ended up cleaning up some of my older games that I abandoned years ago. Also, you need to step up your stalking game, @Crimson Idol, you totally missed my Jak 2 plat. 100% Games: Run Sackboy! Run! Fat Princess: Piece of Cake Plats: Tales of Hearts R Master of Hearts Proof of a perfect completion of Tales of Hearts R. Thanks for playing! Your love and dedication are hugely appreciated! Hotline Miami (40th plat) Trophy Addict Unlock All Trophies PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale All-Star Legend - You've Only Done Everything You have successfully earned all other trophies in the game. Congratulations! MotorStorm RC Lunatics Unite Obtain every other trophy in the game. Jak II Done Done Done For excellent and dedicated field work in the field of battle for completion.
  4. Well, I've had to abandon yet another game because of game crashes, which made the plat unobtainable for me. Since I can't fully beat the game, I can't get the trophies for One Life Mode and the epilogue, which happens right after the part where the game crashes. I've tried so many things, I even downloaded my save on the older version and started a new playthrough because otherwise the save won't work because of version differences but then I encountered yet another bug that wouldn't allow me to save the game after a certain point and I ended up losing nearly all of my progress towards the end of the game. I guess there goes another game on the pile of games that will be finished whenever I happen to get a PS4... I really wish I could recommend the game but the crashes made the plat unobtainable and the framerate makes the game playable at best on the Vita version. Besides that I really ended up loving the soundtrack and the gameplay and liking the story. Yeah, but since I want to experience Ayesha blind, I'd have to do a third unguided playthrough, which would likely raise the expected time to platinum of the guide well above a hundred hours. On the other hand I've already played about 15 hours of Oreshika for the last KYC event, so I'll take less time to finish up the game. Either way, I don't think I'll finish another game before the date and since I'm now able to count my Vita backlog on one hand, I'll probably go show the PS3 some love, now that you've saved me in that regard. I still have to take revenge on AC3 for breaking my PS3. By now I'd think it's impossible to do on Vita. I've tried it so many times and the game always crashed by chapter 3 or 4. It even crashed in the final sequence once on one of my non-Iron Rom playthroughs, so up until the very last moment the game can screw you over. And it's not even due to skipping text, since you're unable to skip the text of the final section. I don't know about how you handle those edge cases but I'd totally say that at least one playthrough on PS4 is required to plat the game, unless it's just some region specific thing where I end up getting screwed because I played the European version. In the end I'd just advise @Evil_Joker88 to play the game on PS4 outside of the event to avoid a lot of frustration. Apparently you can skip text much faster on PS4 as well, which is the biggest gripe I have about the Vita version because skipping the text is slow enough that I could basically still read everything that was said. Since the game is so text-heavy, you end up sitting through hours of already read text to get all of the endings and especially when it comes to the Iron Rom playthrough...
  5. I've had quite a rough month so far. I've mostly tried to make use of my PSPlus while it lasts, so I'm currently trying to plat Fallen Legion before the end of the month and I got quite frustrated as the game crashed four times after beating the final boss but before the game saved. In the end I had to reinstall the game in order to mysteriously make the NG+ button appear on its own. Overall I really like the game in terms of story and gameplay. It's just annoying that the performance is pretty bad on the Vita version but despite that it's still pretty playable. The only thing I can't stand are the crashes. You can remove Atelier Ayesha and Toukiden from my list as I won't have enough time to play them before the event ends. I still don't know about Jak 3, I might still go for that as it's another relatively quick plat, otherwise I'm just gonna spend the rest of my time on Oreshika. It's just as @Crimson Idol says, the Unbreakable Bond trophies are perfect to keep for last as you have to go to a specific place in order to unlock the special skill after raising your bond to the required level. Thus you can unlock the plat by the press of a button.
  6. It wasn't all that bad, honestly. The last two weeks were really taxing, so I was glad to have something that didn't require much thought for those couple days. I don't think I've got any more mediocre games coming up, unless I get some bad surprises in the next Plus lineup. I'm still deciding wether I want to continue Oreshika or go for Atelier Ayesha. The main reason I've been putting Ayesha off is that it already requires two guided playthroughs, so if I wanted to do a blind playthrough that would add up to a total of three playthroughs. I'm not sure how I feel about three back to back playthroughs of the same game but I'd still like to give it a go. Papers, Please is quite an odd game, as it's more of the interesting experience than the fun content type of game. You can definitely see that the game was made with love and it's pretty immersive. The gameplay is unique and fits the Vita really well as it mainly uses the touchscreen while still making complementary use of the buttons. I think it's one of the few ports that play really well on this console. Since the game is pretty hard and quite stressful as it's easy to make mistakes when you aren't concentrating, I'm mostly playing it in shorter bursts at the moment. What has caught more of my attention right now is Subnautica, which is available for free on the Epic Games store right now. I was surprised to see that it actually runs fairly decently on my PC on low setting and a fairly low resolution. That's what I've been playing for the last couple days and I'm really enjoying it.
  7. Yay, I'm third. Congrats @chellesan! I managed to get the last trophy ready to pop yesterday. I'm glad you can save scum the lootboxes, otherwise it would have taken multiple eternities to grind out all of those bubbles needed to buy the costumes. Overall it's a fairly run of the mill mobile game with all of the pay to win facets, especially considering the trophies, you could literally buy the hardest trophies since they require you to buy stuff in the store. I'm glad to have this game off my list as the lootbox grind is pretty mind numbing and slow. Otherwise the game is actually pretty fun for a little while until you get into the trophies. Got this one done yesterday as well. I was surprised to see it still in my download list despite getting removed from the store maybe a year ago. It's actually quite hard to play now since the servers are down and all of the pay to win aspects, including the free samples that were meant to entice you to buy more, were relying on the servers. Now you can only get the lowest spin reward, which is always gems, making the game much harder than usual. Luckily, the only trophy I had left wasn't affected. In the end, I managed to complete both games much faster than I anticipated, so I'm pretty glad I'm done with them now.
  8. Took a while before updating since I thought I might be able to complete Papers Please in time but it doesn't look like I'll have the time since I was busy writing an exam today and there's another one coming up tomorrow as well as on Thursday. I've now given up on 2064 since I'm not even sure it is even possible to get Iron Rom on the Vita version. You can add Fat Princess: Piece of Cake and Run Sackboy! Run! to my list as they've been on my profile for ages and the time seems right to finish them. I'm currently at 62% of the 555 match 5's required for my last trophy in Fat Princess and I'm at about 150k/450k bubbles for Run Sackboy! Run!. Anyways, on to the main course: 100% games: Hatoful Boyfriend The Bridge Platinums: # 33 Burly Men At Sea Ye've Done It “This day, you reach the end of a story,” she continues, “and the last of its paths.” #34 Spy Chameleon All trophies earned Congratulations! #35 Freedom Wars Joy and Prosperity Earn all trophies. Happy Birthday PSVita! (And sorry for making you suffer with Spy Chameleon) May you live a long life despite your parents wanting to kill you.
  9. The ending you get when you are too indecisive and end up spending too little time with any particular bird to end up on one of their routes. It's usually the first ending I tend to get in these kinds of games. There's some back story to what happens in that ending in the routes of the doctor and Yuuta, I believe, (the doctor's assistant). On a different note, I'm currently about three fourths of the way through a playthrough of 2064:ROM without crashing, which is the furthest I got so far. If I didn't jinx it by writing this, I might have a good shot at getting the Iron Rom trophy today. It seems like the game tends to crash less often when played in short bursts rather than one big sitting. Edit: Guess who jinxed it... We're up to X=4.
  10. Thanks, I guess. Actually, when I accidentally left the volume up for a little too long (tragic mistake) I noticed that there are a few more tracks in the later stages but they're all trash. Each and every one of them. Good luck with the challenges, there were a few annoying ones but for the most part they are pretty doable. I'm surprised at the completion rate, though. 13% is quite a bit more than I would have thought since it isn't that easy but I guess the only people who are playing the game knew in advance that they were gonna get the plat no matter what. I actually didn't care about the number of games and was more concerned with the number of plats but now that I have Plus for a little while longer, and since I likely won't renew my PSPlus until I get a PS4 eventually because it just isn't worth it for me without the PS3 and PSVita IGC, my plan is to try out any game that at least remotely interests me and to try and get as many of those done as possible before I'm gonna be unable to play them again. Since my PSPlus will run out before the western anniversary and simply because I'm part of this event I figured, I might as well try out the Vita games first and finish them in time for the Japanese anniversary. I actually don't think that many of my games were mediocre but then again, I don't have the highest of standards and usually, when a game is made with love and not with greed, I tend to enjoy it. If I were to order my games it would go somewhat like this: I think it's just natural to have a few black sheep in there somewhere. After all, curiosity killed the cat and now I have to dispose of some bodies before my Plus ends. I think a quick way to pique your curiosity might be getting a quick neutral ending. Of course, if you have other games you'd rather play waiting for you it would be weird not to play them instead.
  11. Spy Chameleon Glad I'm done with this. When I started this game I thought I was going to like it but somehow I've grown to like it less and less the more I played it. The gameplay is fine but something just feels off about the game and the audio is just horrendous. Until now I've never played a game that made me mute it on purpose but the OST sounds so weird and the damn noises the chameleon makes every time you change color are incredibly unfitting and annoying. Since this is the main gimmick of the game, you are constantly hearing these noises. Yesterday on my way back home from school I pulled my Vita and my headphones out of my bag by habit and just ended up putting my headphones away again the moment I realized what I would be playing because I'd rather hear nothing than the audio of this game. Definitely can't recommend it but I'm popping the plat on the Japanese anniversary anyways in order to prove once again that most western games on the Vita just aren't that great. 2064: Read Only Memories Now that this is done, I guess I'm gonna try and go for the 2064:ROM plat once again. I've continued my last failed playthrough to the point that I'm only missing the final chapter and if everything ends up working out, I'll be able to just mindlessly choose any dialogue choices I want in my Iron Rom runs. Since I'll still need to pay some attention to the game, I will probably go ahead and start up Steins;Gate from this month's PSPlus lineup. I'm still a bit annoyed that it isn't cross buy with the Vita version, but I guess beggars can't be choosers, right? I did watch the anime a couple years ago but I'd probably enjoy checking out some of the paths that weren't adapted and like I said, it's probably the perfect game to play alongside "Press Simulator 2019". I've also started up Papers Please on Sunday when I didn't manage to force myself through some more Spy Chameleon but while the gameplay is perfect for the Vita, the game is way too stressful for my already stress-filled week. If my prayers to RNGesus work in my favor and I actually manage to complete a full run of 2064 without the game crashing halfway through, I'll probably try to squeeze this game in as well. I still stand by my opinion that both the story and the choice of trophies are great, but yeah, random crashes in a game without auto saves is annoying enough, even when there isn't a trophy that requires you to finish a playthrough in one go. The story really gets going towards the end of chapter two but I was severely disappointed by how little the choices actually influence how the characters act. Most scenarios were only altered by a single line of text in my jerk playthrough but at least that explains why Jess treated me like trash even though I was always nice to her, it's just exactly the same attitude she shows when you're bombarding her with cat jokes. I guess if you realized you weren't going to like the game, it's a good thing you realized it as fast as you did. Sad to hear you didn't enjoy the game as I really loved it but yeah, it's quite rough around the edges. What routes did you finish? I found the routes of the bird in the library, the doctor and Anghel's route to be the most interesting ones. The final route is also very interesting as it's a lot longer than the others and does some quite unexpected things.
  12. Well, 2 crashes and a wasted Saturday later, I've managed to bump my X up to 3. I guess I'll call it quits for this weekend as I'm not gonna have the time for a full playthrough tomorrow and the game won't let me switch to my alarm clock while it's running. I'm currently weighing off wether or not I should just finish one more normal playthrough so I don't have to worry about picking the right dialogue choices anymore and can just ignore the game except for the sparse gameplay sections. I'm pretty sure I've never felt this discouraged about a platinum trophy, just because I know that getting to the end in one setting is nowhere near hard to accomplish but it's completely reliant on RNG as the game crashes so frequently and it's all the more disheartening if it happens two thirds into the game. I'll have another go at it next weekend but if I don't get it done before the anniversary, I'm probably just gonna wait until I have a PS4 one day because the game doesn't seem to crash on there. I guess I'll force myself through a few more Spy Chameleon levels in the mean time, at least that plat is skill reliant.
  13. Things are looking good for 2064:ROM, I managed to get the hardest trophies today so now the only thing left for me to do is complete X more playthroughs (X = [amount of crashes] + 1) and a couple endings that branch off at the end of said playthrough(s). Since the game so far only crashed twice for me, I'm hoping X will be less than 3 or ideally 1. It's pretty annoying that a single crash can set you back 6 or more hours if it happens towards the end of the game and it certainly doesn't help that skipping text in this game is a crawl.
  14. Huge post-KYC update Got another bunch of games ready for the Japanese anniversary, even though some of them don't really fit all that well but they're all PSPlus games and my Plus won't last until the western anniversary, so I'm just gonna pop them all on the 17th. A fun physics based puzzle game that has you manipulate gravity in order to progress through the game. I really love the surreal art style as well as the constant addition of new mechanics throughout the game that sometimes completely change up the way you have to approach a certain situation or simply add another layer of obstacles to toy around with. I did play the game on PS3 for about 10 minutes in order to compare the differences in how the game handles on both consoles and because it made me have a bit of an easier time getting one of my final trophies. The only thing left for me to do is complete one last level with a certain restriction that shouldn't cause too much trouble and I'll get my 100%. I'm guessing most people in this thread will know about this already but it's definitely much deeper than the looks might make it seem. The only thing left for me to do is skip through the last few lines of the final route (I ended up watching the end on YouTube) then I'll have yet another 100% title. Very quick plat but it definitely gets tiresome repeating most of the story numerous times in order to see all endings, which aren't really all that special either. I found this one to be fun during the first couple playthroughs, though. Overall it's a nice little artistic game but I wish they would have gone for a longer linear game instead of an incredibly short branching storyline. Missing one more ending for the plat, ETA: 15 minutes. I'm currently working on finishing both 2064: Read Only Memories and Spy Chameleon for the Japanese anniversary, although I'm not quite sure if I'll be able to finish 2064 in time since the Vita version seems to be a little troublesome when it comes to obtaining certain trophies in this game. If I do manage to complete the game, I'll likely make this my main Japanese plat and move Freedom Wars back to the western anniversary but we'll see how that turns out.
  15. Time for yet another wrap-up. I think this time around I'll start off with my old KYC lists, mostly because I'm interested in how many of those games I've completed by now and how likely I am to actually finish them now that quite some time has passed. It should also offer an interesting look at the impact of this event on my completion since the first time I took part. KYC 3: Completion: 66.30% -> 64.36% | -1.94% Completed games: 5/10 Games ranked by enjoyment: From Dust (PS3) Completed during the event. I actually feel like replaying this game from time to time and I really wish there was more content for me to enjoy. Severed (PSVita) Completed during the event. Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath (PSVita) Completed during the event. I remember taking way too much time out of my schedule because I wanted to see the end of the story during the time slot it was in. Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3) Unfinished. I don't know why I didn't get back to this after the event but I guess I just got distracted by something else that came up. It's a shame because I loved the game and I was pretty far in so now that I haven't played it in quite a while it's hard to pick it back up and relearn the controls again. I do plan on finishing this game eventually, though. Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (PS3) Completed during the event. Dragon Ball Xenoverse (PS3) Unfinished. I only managed to scratch the surface in the time slot, there's a whole lot of content and the plat is gonna take ages to get but I'll definitely get back to this eventually. Since it requires so much effort and I'm not particularly into fighting games this might take a while, though. Dirt 3 (PS3) Unfinished. I should probably get back to this before my PSPlus runs out but I'm not really in the mood for racing games at the moment. TorqueL (PSVita) Completed during the event. Lumo (PSVita) Unfinished. This will have to wait until I get a PS4 because that version is apparently playable. The Lord of the Rings: War in the North (PS3) Unfinished. I think this is more trouble than it's worth so it's at the bottom of my list right now. Well, maybe a spot above Lumo if anything. KYC 777: Completion: 61.94% -> 60.27% | -1.67% Completed games: 4/6 Games ranked by enjoyment: Jak 3 (PS3) Completed during the event. Tales of Hearts R (PSVita) Completed after the event. Catherine (PS3) Unfinished. Pretty high up my priority list in terms games to continue. MotorStorm RC (PS3) Completed after the event. Jak 2 (PSVita) Completed after the event. Imagine someone soaked your cat in gasoline and lit it on fire. It survived with severe burn marks, and it's barely even recognizable anymore but it's still your cat so you love it but every time you look at it you get sad at what happened. That's how I feel about this game. Lost Planet 3 (PS3) Unfinished. I really didn't enjoy this game even though it has a pretty high production value. I will try to force myself through a story playthrough eventually but I don't think I care enough to boost the dead MP. KYC ∞: Completion: 65.01% -> 63.63% | -1.38% Completed games: 4/8 Games ranked by enjoyment: Port Royale 3 (PS3) Unfinished. By far my favorite game of KYC infinity. It's a economy/strategy game set in the Caribbean in the age of pirates and you can choose between becoming a trader, invader or pirate, or you can do all three at the same time. It's very easy to lose track of time when playing this game and it'll probably be the first game I get back to after the Japanese PSVita anniversary. Definitely worth checking out if you're into this sort of stuff. 2064: Read Only Memories (PSVita) Unfinished. Cyberpunk blend between VN and adventure game with interesting story and likable characters. As @Agent 47 hinted at, you'll probably be disappointed if you're picking this up when looking for a point and click adventure because the game is very text heavy and puzzles are much easier than those of classic titles. The point and click aspects are mainly used to flesh out the world through character and object interactions. Now that the event is over, it's the first game I got back to and I'm planning to finish it for the anniversary. If you don't mind lots of dialogue the story is well worth trying. Hatoful Boyfriend (PSVita) Completed during the event. I was completely caught off guard by this game. It's got great comedy but don't you dare think this game is just about the humor. If you're into VNs you probably heard about this before and you should really give it a go if you can get it for a good price. Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines (PSVita) Unfinished. Pretty grindy JRPG set in old Japan that has an interesting mechanic heritage mechanic that reminds me of Rogue Legacy. Nothing extraordinary but it sure is fun if you don't mind spending a lot of your playtime grinding. I'm planning on returning to this game a bit later on but I'm definitely going for the plat. The Bridge (PSVita/PS3) Completed during the event. Enjoyable artsy puzzle game that has you manipulate gravity in order to get through each level. I really love the way this game keeps things fresh by introducing very creative mechanics regularly, which spice things up. If you're into puzzles this is definitely worth picking up. Child of Light (PS3) Completed during the event. Very pretty game with one hell of a great soundtrack. I'd recommend it for the OST alone but the story is also pretty nice and as it's told as a poem, it definitely is a bit of a curiosity. Burly Men At Sea (PSVita) Completed during the event. Artistic game focusing on telling a branching story that feels a bit like a CYOA. Sadly, since getting all endings requires you to play through many scenes of the game way too often, it ends up feeling very repetitive after a while. It's also really short so you're definitely not getting your money's worth unless you received it through Plus. Spy Chameleon (PSVita) Unfinished. The gameplay is fun but something just feels off about the game and it doesn't help that the art is fine at best and the soundtrack is a disappointment. I'll still finish this game as the plat doesn't seem too difficult and the game is still moderately fun. Thanks for hosting the event @voodoo_eyes as I've once again managed to find some unexpected gems in my library. Doing these statistics, I've found that I tend complete way more games during the events than I should but I've got the tendency to neglect things I should rather be doing when playing good games. This has been one hell of a month for me, filled to the brim with exams of all kinds and I probably should have studied more than I actually did but everything was going well in the end. I'll just hope K-9 will take place at a better time for me because this ended up being pretty stressful. Speaking of K-9, I've got some interesting things planned but I'll need a friend of mine to agree on helping me out, so we'll see how that turns out. By the way, if anyone is reading this far: Were there anymore news on the thing with PSPlus dropping PS3 and Vita games by March 2019? I'm currently debating if I should save up for renewing my PSPlus membership but if this actually ends up happening, I don't think it's worth it for me. After all I don't even own a PS4 yet so I'd only be benefiting from the ability to play old Plus games, of which I already played the most interesting titles...
