  1. Good thing your backlog seems pretty small and manageable. You seem to be making a good start.
  2. Been replaying Horizon Zero Dawn on NG+ on Ultra Hard. The one thing I have concluded so far? I really dislike the Nora, maybe even hate them. I know they're basically techno-barbarians, but their treatment of Outcasts and anyone that isn't a Nora, makes them look like a tribe who're probably doomed to extinction due to their isolationist tendencies. Especially given what they did to Rost and Aloy.

     

    I don't dislike or hate every individual Nora, just their culture. Aloy reacts to their culture appropriately though and I do like how Guirella Games did that. Also fuck Bast, I forgot about that petty little prick.

      Maybe its blatant racism in a game without them admittedly saying so 😂

       

      Aside from Aloy, no character is memorable.

      It's funny because I decided to go back to complete Zero Dawn, I have been playing on PC and I got a good chunk of the game done but since I recently got a PS5 I started playing it again on there. 

      I really like Aloy, Rost, Teersa, and Varl the most. :) 

      But based on Aloy's origin I think the discrimination makes sense in a way? They are very unwelcoming to her I agree and it makes interacting with most of them really tough since they don't treat you well. 

  3. Sorry this was 7 years ago and I got burned out with Dragon Age 2 and didn't go back to it. I recall starting a new game but not getting to this point yet =/
  4. Gris Platinum #161 Beautiful game with a unique art style and a story told without words, using visuals and the trophies to help explain this game is about the five stages of grief. Gun Crazy Platinum #162 I took a peek at the trophy list online and decided to give it a whirl. Had no idea I would earn the platinum trophy so quickly. This game is now my fastest platinum and was pretty fun to earn, worth a quick playthrough if you like arcade side-scrolling games.
  5. Hello all, and welcome to my little corner of the site. I've been gaming for just about 22 years now, give or take a year. I've mainly been a Sony/PC gamer growing up, since like most people, I could only afford to support one console. And I was given a PSX and PS2 growing up. Eventually moving on to PS3. I gamed a lot on PC too, and had a decent library of PS2 games, until moving onto PS3. The one thing that sucked initially for me, was the lack of games on PS3 at launch. Eventually there were more games, and then trophy support. I have an older account, James01367 that used to be my primary one, but I started my current profile, after I played some awful games and earned some really bad Platinum trophies, from games like X-Blades, Anarchy: Rush Hour & Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days. Plus I had a lot of unfinished games on that profile. Sadly, when starting my new profile, I missed out on some great platinum trophies, due to servers closing, like Bulletstorm, Overlord 2 & Ghostbusters (PS3). Since starting a new profile, I try to plat games that I consider to be good. I like to go for Platinums that aren't too easy, the exceptions being easy plats from enjoyable games like X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Godfather II or Trine 2. I also want to try for some of the harder and rarer platinums, since I didn't really go for all that many on my old profile.

My Platinum Showroom Special Thanks to Djunglist, DSluckay and Stupot00 for my original Banners. I have since replaced them with ones I made myself. Thanks to Bardas for the Eat Lead Banner. Special Thanks to Dare for the Uncharted 3 banner and the future banners for Serious Sam 3: BFE & Little Big Planet 2. I want to give a shout out to Floriiss for my awesome, title banner. I really appreciate the contributions they've all made to making my checklist look as good as it does. PSN Games with 100% Trophy Completion This is a list of my non Platinum, PSN games that I have earned 100% completion on.
  6. Just Earned Platinums #161 and 162. I was seriously surprised how quickly I beat the second game's trophy list. You technically don't even have to finish the game.

      Congrats. With Gris, it's almost the end when you can plat it, so might as well.

      @MidnightDragon Oh I was referring to Gun Crazy. I finished Gris.

  7. Earned platinums #159 and #160. Lollipop Chainsaw and Batman: The Enemy Within. Both were fun games to complete.

  8. Lollipop Chainsaw Platinum #159 This was a fun classic to throw myself into, it isn't perfect but I did have a pretty good time overall. Batman: The Enemy Within Platinum #160 The continuation of Telltale's Batman games. I had a good time with this one. Though I feel I made more bad decisions than good ones in this game. I'll have to revisit both sometime in the future.
  9. I'm the same with the Witcher 3. I own it, I own the complete version to be specific. But I never got around to it. You should give the latest L.A Noire version a whirl, it seems to be the most complete version of the game with some content not features on the original PS3 release. I've beaten that version and that was a pretty good time, from what I recall.
  10. If I play and plat Arkham Origins: Blackgate, would I qualify for Gotham Protector? I've beaten Arkham Asylum and City twice, on PS3 and PS4, plus Arkham Knight currently.
  11. It's still possible to register in the online rankings. So it's still doable. Best to do a playthrough first to buy a bunch of upgrades and then replay the earlier stages.
  12. Man this list has so many games I beat, if you want my thoughts on those games, then checkout my own Trophy checklist. I'll talk about a few games in your backlog though. Blades of Time - I'd skip it, especially if it's like the previous game X-Blades, one of the most insultingly awful games I've ever played on a console. At least on Steam it's easier to get a refund for the game. It's one of the games that made me start over on a new profile. I am biased against these games though, so feel free to ignore me on this one. Mirror's Edge - If you also have the DLC then yes, this will at least ensure you can get the platinum, even if you can't get 100% trophy completion. Shadow of the Colossus - I'd personally recommend just going straight to the PS4 version and skipping the PS3 one. But it isn't a bad one, I think you just need to re-assign the controls, the original layout isn't super-comfy. The Puppeteer - I have only heard and seen good things about this game, a damn shame it's so hard to get ahold of a physical copy. Dishonored - If you own a copy, then I recommend completing it. Maybe on the PS4 re-release which should perform better if you don't have one. GoW: Ascension - The black sheep of the GoW franchise. I personally liked it, it's the best looking GoW game on PS3 and it's got some pretty cool enemies and bosses. Just be sure to test for the one online trophy on a spare account, since I'm not a 100% sure if it's still completable. It's basically just completing the online tutorial. Watchmen: The End is Nigh Part 01 & 02. - I played these on my old account and they were pretty fun but also short games. I'd recommend completing them Going for Lollipop Chainsaw as well I see. I'm currently finding the Gondola level very annoying on stage 4. Beating it without shooting I mean. Good luck with MGS2!
  13. Yeah I'm pretty sure it was the grinding that made me want to take a break, that and I was struggling a bit with finding and stealing one of those tanks. I'll hopefully complete it this year. Untitled Goose Game Plat #158 Another game ticked off my extremely long checklist, a step closer to hitting Platinums #175 and 200. Playing as a mean and petty goose pestering the people of a little British village is a surprisingly good time. A bit short but worth the £7 I paid to play it.
  14. Demon's Souls is going to be a grind for you, due to all the World Tendency stuff. I lucked out back when the PS3 servers were still up and got to borrow the missing weapons and ores I needed to complete the game. Heavy Rain will hopefully only take you an afternoon to play through the various scenarios.
  15. Almost finished with Untitled Goose Game, just have to do the Quick completion/speedrun trophies. Which are the one kind of trophy I really don't like. Then after that I'll probably go back to Lollipop Chainsaw or tackle one of the other games I've started.

      Yeah, I didn't go back to the game for like over a year before attempting those trophies.

      Especially since it's a bit of finnicky RNG stuff with the AI.

  16. None of those games should take you too long. I've beaten 5 of them myself, so you can 100% do it. Definitely use a guide for Okami HD though, some of the collectibles can be hard to find.
  17. I've started or I am planning to complete the following games. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Lolipop Chainsaw Mass Effect Trilogy Nier Shadows of the Damned Singularity Knight's Contract Dragon Age 2 Dead Space 2 The Saboteur Wheelman Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands Prince of Persia Trilogy 1/3 complete Dark Souls 1 and 2 Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions
  18. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Platinum #157 Well I promised myself I'd make this my first platinum of 2022. I had a good time overall with this game and wouldn't mind seeing a sequel someday. It catches that Star Wars aesthetic perfectly and adds nicely to the universe. I definitely recommend the game, it's a great story in a Galaxy Far Far Away.
  19. Earned Platinum #157 Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order!

  20. After my experience finding a copy of Lollipop Chainsaw I got a new copy of Nier for under £20 and Singularity for under £10. Just in case I leave it too long and there's a big price hike again 😅.

  21. Yeah Seasons After Fall is definitely a pretty little game, it's got that unique watercolour look that is going to age well. And now for my 2021 summary. 18 Games for 2021, just two short of my 20 platinum goal. 15 on PS4 and 3 on PS3. Honestly not a bad year. I'm aiming to platinum Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order as my first Platinum of 2022 and follow that up with Nier and Lollipop Chainsaw. Then hopefully The Outer Worlds, Singularity, The Saboteur and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. Mainly I just want to take it easy again and have fun completing my games.
  22. After searching high and low offline and online, I finally got myself a copy of Lollipop Chainsaw. It still cost £32 for a physical copy =/. And I got asked for ID before I could purchase it, which while flattering the store staff think I look 'THAT' young. It was also friggen embarassing. And aggravating because the month prior I bought a rated 18 game without issue from the same store. Fortunately my store card confirmed my age on their systems, so I got the game.

     

    The prices I found online for this game were absurd, prices like £60 to £112 for new copies, it's not that rare of a game is it? That sort of price hike is ridiculous to me. It brings to mind that whole ongoing retro videogame scandal.

      Thats a decent good price, in the states they go for around $50-$150 and those prices may not even include box and manual.

      @NERVergoproxy Yeah I got burned like that with Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions. I bought a 'new' copy and it came in a goddamn blu-ray move case with just the game disc. I filed a complaint with Amazon and the seller, but Amazon wouldn't intervene in this instance. That was a few years ago, still peeved about that.

    4. NERVergoproxy

      NERVergoproxy

      I would never buy without a picture confirmation, even if its like for cheap games. When I buy physicals Im very picky on my box and manuals, haha. 
      I have Spidey Shattered but I been looking for Edge of Time and its hard to find a good deal for one. :( 

  23. Seasons After Fall Platinum #156 Another quick but fun game to play, a lovely little story with platforming and a Forest to explore with secrets to reveal. If you're looking for a nice relaxing fun game, I'd definitely recommend Seasons After Fall. It's short but definitely a memorable experience that makes you feel very small in a very big world. But without threatening the player character with obvious big threatening enemies.
  24. Earned my 155th Platinum trophy with OK K.O Let's Play Heroes. A fun little game I got for free on PS Plus and finally played through and overall it was pretty good. It's short, it's simple and it doesn't overstay its welcome.

  25. OK K.O Let's Play Heroes Platinum #155 This is one of those rare games based on a show that is actually pretty good, this isn't going to make it on a top-10 licensed games list, but it's definitely worth playing. Especially if you are familiar with the source material. Or just need a smaller game to play and complete, inbetween much bigger titles and open-world games. This is another of those games I grabbed on PS Plus and forgot about, until I saw it while scrolling through my PSN library.
