  1. Cassy for whatever reason I find myself frequenting your profile here and there just to go back through your old posts and see how you felt about a game. This game is available for $5 right now on sale and the art looked interesting to me - but the sheer rarity's scared me off. It's almost Super Meat Boy levels. You're the 43rd fastest to achieve it and still one of the most recent. I'd love to dive in due to all the delicious ultra rare gold trophies but I think I'm leaning towards holding off for now. Cheers!

  4. I can't even beat Stage 4 on Normal let alone "Cool" right now... The hell am I doing wrong? Sometimes people recommend hitting late, I double press the buttons at the end and sometimes they give credit and sometimes they take away points. WHAT?
  5. Game: Heavy Rain Analysis: I never intended to play Heavy Rain. When it was available for free for PS Plus users back in July 2018, I didn't get it, yet since I did download Detroit: Become Human when it was free for PS Plus users in July 2019 - I got Heavy Rain in that bundle! Cool! I figured what the heck, it shouldn't be too long and I've always heard conflicting things (people who don't normally do in-depth critiques loving it, people with a more critical eye hating it) I decided to dive in. Since I wanted to make sure I got all the trophies - I followed this 10 hour speedrun on YouTube by speedrunner HolySanctum. It's hilarious. Let me say this - there are some great things I genuinely like about Heavy Rain. Playing as Scott Shelby was the best part of the game for me. Being this private investigator, having a partner in Lauren, going around and visiting the victims of this Origami Killer (which once again, cool concept) who drowns his victims by letting rain accumulate over days (once again, cool concept). He was fun to play as, had a good voice actor, and seemed caring (saved the woman in the bath, could save Hassan, cared for the baby) and so forth. Ethan's character is the 2nd best, going through the trials can be agonizing (and at times - hilarious), Madison is 3rd best and while it can be torn to shreds with the sexism and David Cage creepiness (eh I don't harp on it like others to) she has one of the better endings if she alone confronts Scott at the Warehouse and saves Shawn. Jayden's the worst IMO. Awful lietuenant Blake banter (which funnily enough became the BEST part of Detroit: Become Human between the Connor banter with Clancy Brown) just made him uninteresting to play. I'm still impressed that I got "All Endings" and yet there were still a good number of scenes I didn't know about until watching this critique on Heavy Rain. It's nit-picky and heavy handed with the Cage hate, but it is fair in some parts (Jason's death, Madison's scenes, Scott becoming John Wick while being fat and having asthma, oh and he has billions of dollars, oh and he borders between sympathic victim who's suffered and still cares and PSYCHOPATH killer who still wants to kill Ethan?). I dunno - I still liked it. It only took me a little over 3 days to achieve the 12.37% rarity platinum which is pretty nifty. The toughest individual trophies are "Kamikaze" and "I'm not Scared" but besides that smooth sailing. I think the best way I'd describe Heavy Rain is it's good dumb fun. It's not a narrative masterpiece. But it does have some good fun compelling sections that can be enjoyed - and if you play this game with someone who normally doesn't play video games - I imagine it can be a hilarious blast. Panda Score: 7.1 / 10
  6. RealM722's Trophy Cabinet EDIT: September 4th, 2019 - I used to have something completely different here since I was just getting acclimated with trophy hunting back in mid-2016. Now nearly 3 years later, my platinum count has sky-rocketed and I'm now in the top 100,000 worldwide on the PSN Profiles leaderboard. As a result, I've decided to change the way this is set up. Since I now have enough games in my arsenal, I will be separating them by numbers rank and link to their review that I've made on this whole thread. To check it out, just click the "---" 3 dashes to the right of each game. Hope those who bothered reading this enjoy! Platinums / 100%'s Accomplished: In the 9.00 Range: --- --- --- --- In the 8.00 Range: --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- In the 7.00 Range --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- In the 6.00 Range: --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- In the 5.00 Range: --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- In the 4.00 Range: --- ---
  7. Preferably that you've played. You can check how many owners a game has by clicking the game and checking the number farthest to the left of your screen.
  8. It is criminal that "The Messenger" only has 799 owners on PS4. This is one of my favorite games I've played in 2019. It is a sublime platformer that has witty and fun dialogue and is essentially an enhanced Ninja Gaiden. It was also just on sale. The platinum rarity isn't too tough at all at 30%+ and it should easily take you well under 20 hours (I did it in 15 + DLC). Please play it everybody!
  9. Harvest Moon: Save the Homeland! I bought it last sale! One of the few HM games I've never played. Took you 2 years to plat but it's an ultra rare so congrats!
  10. Miami sports fan and I made it myself (hence why 3 of the 4 logos are now outdated)
  11. Likes games that take consistent effort (Rayman Legends) and while they don't have a ton of ultra rare trophies, the ones they do are ridiculously impressive.
  12. Rocket League took me 3 years and 5 months to fully 100%. Solely because of the DLC. Need for Speed: Rivals is the longest that took me without at 3 years and 1 month because I had 0 interest in trophies until I played Unravel, and I've loved them ever since.
  13. Yooooooo and now I achieved "The Curtain Falls"! I was at it for quite some time with Batman, gave up, switched to Catwoman and got it on like my 4th attempt since having no brutes makes it far easier. Stopped for the day, went back as Batman, and within like 6 attempts I got it. Then I did Nightwing, and got it on my 1st attempt as him (for some reason to me he feels way faster than other characters), and finally after an hour as Robin I achieved it! Man I've gotta say, "The Curtain Falls" - at least for me, felt like the easiest of the 3. Maybe it's because I had most of my practice in Crime Alley but that one was worse, and "Requiem For a Killer" due to the randomness of not knowing who's coming next is also worse off. I'm very proud of myself though. I thought for a moment I'd never achieve these 3. Now to do the predator challenges and then a new story plus run for the platinum and 100%!
  14. OH MY GOD I FINALLY GOT "REQUIEM FOR A KILLER" I spent like... 3-4 hours yesterday on the 26th going for it. Closest I got was 780k. I couldn't fathom that I may never be able to achieve it. Then today I got 850k on my first run, kept at it for another 40 minutes, and hit 1.3 million with ease and achieved like a 525 hit combo. The key for me was using the disruptor and taking out the crates cuz in the 250-300+ range they'd start getting guns and that'd trip me up. One of my proudest trophies I've ever achieved. Now on to "The Curtain Falls"...
  15. I just spent the last 4 hours getting "The Chill in the Air". I took a break, kept going at it with Batman, then got it. Tried for Robin, thought I had gotten it (you need Perfect Knight, I didn't know that), then went to Nightwing. When it didn't pop I went back to Robin and spent 2 hours on the challenge as him before finally achieving it at a super late hour of the night. What a damn brutal trophy. I think I'll go for Requiem for a Killer next since it requires you to be great for a long time but at least you're playing as Batman. I'm not one who normally goes all out for trophies like these but something about this game and all it's DLC makes me want to conquer it completely.
  16. lol RIP. Nearly a year since this comment, my rarity has gone from 31.77% in July 2018, 33.85% in December 2018, to 36.95% in November 2019. I've mostly managed to avoid a lot of easier platinums, but it's easy to have your stat get "inflated" when you play 20-40% rarity plats vs the strictly sports ultra rare games I used to play.
  17. Mirror's Edge Catalyst! I've always seen it on sale for $5 and always been tempted but never dove all in. I've heard it's inferior to the original Mirror's Edge but the perspective of it just seems so unique I still want to give it a shot. Good rare platinum!
  18. Game: Gravel Analysis: This is a very mediocre game. I bought it for $7.99 during early November 2019 just has a racing game to play since I really wanted something to mindlessly play while listening to other stuff, and Gravel fulfilled it's role in that regard. The game is fairly simple and straightforward where you play through different matchups, try and get 3 stars, and advance the "story" in that sense. I'll be honest and say I'm kind of surprised by how barebones it was. It pales deeply in comparison to any of the NFS games or The Crew 2. I did have some fun getting the 10 online matches after boosting it with Celestial_Lily but all in all there isn't a single memorable thing about this game for me. No open world, maybe the Namibia desert tracks were pretty cool. It only took me 6 days and 14 hours to achieve it but in the end I got my 39.96% rarity platinum. Hope I find another racing game that satisfies me more than this one soon. I'd love to get NFS: Heat given all the positive feedback I've heard on it, but only when it goes on sale for $20 which is 6+ months from now in all likelihood. Panda Score: 5.75 / 10
  19. Some of y'all are nuts. I consider myself pretty stubborn and will continue to bash my head away at something until i get it... unless it's in that sub-2% rarity range and then I say screwwwww that some of this stuff is not worth. I won't always write off a massive challenge but I have limits. Stardew Valley - Fector's Challenge - Beat a bullet hell game completely unrelated to the main game without dying once. 0.97% rarity. Requires luck. Yea, no thanks dude. MLB The Show 16 - Victorious! - Win 20 out of 21 online Diamond Dynasty Battle Royale games. 0.30% rarity. Nah dawg... I'm good. MLB The Show 19 - Welcome to the Chip - Reach Championship Division Series (800 rank) online with an ELO scale... 1.48% rarity. Do-able if I spent several weeks chipping away at it... no thanks. All 3 would be dope platinums to have but I can't. LittleBigPlanet3, The Last Guardian, and Unravel 2 are all also games that may crack me.
  20. Batman: Arkham Knight I'm at 28% completion(in-game completion, for trophies I'm at 7%) atm... I'm quite enjoying myself. Don't know why I'm surprised but it's just fun being Batman. I know the AR challenges will prolly be a pain but it has been a long time since I've played a game like this and it's a delight. Hope it keeps up!
  21. I personally find an account wayyy more impressive if they have next to 0 easy ass platinums. Going by general rarity on the "Stats" page is a great way to fish this out. Anything sub-40% tells me the person is really sticking with stuff that's pretty tricky for the most part and almost never partakes in the cupcakes. It 100% does cheapen an account if you start going through it and you see that they "achieved" things that 80-95% of people are capable of. You just went through the process of spending money to buy it? For example, I'm a huge fan of Nostalgy_Flow's (RIP CriveL20) account since that 23.05% rarity for his whole account blows my mind. Sure he's "only" level 24 but no one on the planet could make an argument someone Level 40+ with a bunch of 80%+ rarity plats has a "better" account.
  22. Game: The Messenger Analysis: I love this game. Unbelievably, I managed to get it for free thanks to an amazing user on here by the name of iGGTheEnd. They literally just messaged me a code they got from the developers since I had expressed interest on another post in playing this. The only reason I knew about the game was because YouTuber Joseph Anderson streamed it! I knew he quite enjoyed it and I figured what the heck, I'd love to give it a shot too since I had forgotten much about it. But oh my goodness.... this game is magnificent. It's a platformer that is linear for the 1st half and then splits into a 16-bit metroidvania. I will say, there are some pacing issues in that 2nd half portion since it's not as direct as the 1st half of the game but this game is a freaking delight to play. I don't brag about soundtracks as much as many other people do with their games, BUT OH MY GOD THIS SOUNDTRACK. LISTEN TO IT. My personal favorites are Autumn Hills, Cloud Ruins, and Sunken Shrine. Nonetheless, this game is insanely difficult for me. I know it has a fairly high completion percentage and everything but holy crap I died 830+ times playing through this and the Picnic Panic DLC. I know that's an insane amount for many, but my god the Queen of Quills boss lady? That fight legit took me 40 minutes and I refused to look up a guide. The Arcane Golem at the end of the 1st half? They kicked my ass man. Destroying all of the Power Seals was also tricky since a few rooms were stupidly tricky. I'm not complaining, I enjoyed it and got past it, but this isn't a walk-in-the-park game whatsoever. Thankfully the wonderful witty dialogue with The Shopkeeper is iconic and will be likely what I remember mostly from this game. The windmill shuriken saved my life on the Demon General fight, and it helped greatly in the DLC section which had some brutal parts, but all in all, I earned my 32.28% rarity platinum in just 5 days and 5 hours! Hell, the 100% is a good deal rarer at a 13.79% 100% completion rate. I will never forget my time with this game and I strongly recommend it to everybody who enjoys humor with their games. Panda Score: 8.5 / 10
  23. 2016: 7 platinums (1.01% ultra rare in Madden 17) 2017: 4 platinums (1.71% ultra rare in FIFA 17) 2018: 24 platinums (1.91% ultra rare in FIFA 19) 2019: 28 platinums (0.91% ultra rare in FIFA 20) Pretty happy with that.
  24. Game: Battleship Analysis: We have quite the classic here. I bought Battleship for $5.99 when it went on sale in mid-October 2019. I didn't have a 100% completion on my profile resumé since Fez in late July, so I figured it was about time to have one I could properly complete so it's not just a sea of blue on my profile. I figured, hey, I've 100%'d Scrabble, how difficult could Battleship be? Plus, it's nice to have a classic board game like this at convenience on a game system. If you've ever played, you know the deal. Sink the opposing teams ships by varying your missile shots and try to spread yours out in a way that you don't think the opposing player(in this case CPU) would easily identify. All you really have to do is play through all the campaign missions which totals like 30 or so, and none but a few where you're put at a disadvantage at the start is all that difficult. I quite liked saving my missiles up until I could do the full straight coordinate spread. In the end, I achieved the 9.03% 100% completion marker in just 1 day and 46 minutes! Unbelievably, it's the 26th fastest to accomplish it on PSNProfiles! I wasn't even setting out to accomplish that. All in all, it's decent mindless fun while you do something else. Panda Score: 6.5 / 10
  25. I am so hyped for this!!! Always wanted to play a Civ game. Curious for experienced Civ players though, is playing on Civ difficulty Deity a legit challenge or can that be manipulated?
