  1. Infinite Stratos. Be warned that the MC is even denser than a black hole.
  2. Platinum #175 Fate Extella Link Enjoyment 7/10 Difficulty 2/10 Conqueror of the Moon Acquired all other trophies My 175th Platinum on the Vita! The gameplay is a lot more fun compared to the prequel but is quite lacking storywise. Just like how the story in Fate Hollow Ataraxia can't really be compared to Fate Stay Night and is more of a fandisc, Fate Extella Link is like a fandisc for players who enjoyed Fate Extella and the original Fate Extra on the PSP. The antagonist is quite lacking going on about Love, Love, Love all the time and honestly feels like a joke compared to Extella's antagonists, where you could really feel the desperation and terror fighting against such a strong and powerful enemy. There is not much focus on any of the main heroines, but on the plus side you can pretty much play as whichever Servant you desire. With the prequel's 16 Servants plus ten new ones including best girl Scathach! Game is also quite easy. Just stock up on Obstinate and Bravery Install skills and you can pretty much cheese the game. Hell one time I accidentally used a lv100 character to play a lv140 stage, and I won while barely taking any damage lol. It's super easy to obtain EX ranks this time around, but is not needed at all for platinum. Money also is not an issue in this game. I have a habit of switching Servants all the time and using the Money is Power System to level up them up to the recommended level, but still had plenty of cash to spare. Didn't need to farm either to synthesise all the install skills. One of the biggest highlights in this game would be the character interactions but sadly they didn't include that many. It's quite hilarious when playing as Nero, Tamamo, Altera or Elizabeth and talking with any of the other heroines in the base camp as they are all bragging about going on a date with their Master and the other party's like Gunununununu (Biting imaginary handkerchief). Nameless/Archer has changed his looks a lot too, which is funnily enough called out by Gilgamesh, and Nameless is like "It's about time I changed my image to match". Way to break the fourth wall there. If Nameless and Gilgamesh meet in battle they actually use the same lines in the Unlimited Blade Works anime: "Here I come, King of Heroes. Do you have enough weapons in stock?" But seriously though, why would they make him look like Xehanort? I keep expecting him to start yelling about darkness and try to take over Kingdom Hearts. A KH x FGO crossover would be great wouldn't it? In conclusion, this is a game for Fate fans. For those new to the series just check out Fate Extella first and if you like it then buy the sequel. Can't believe I actually scored these many platinums on the Vita. Gonna play Salt and Sanctuary after this which is supposed to be like Dark Souls on Vita. Just a few more games left in my backlog before challenging the dreaded Ninja Gaiden and Injustice, before officially closing the book on my Vita for good. Honestly speaking I love my Vita and would be sad to put it down. Sony is really stupid for ruining such a good console with retarded pricy memory cards and making it such a hassle for switching accounts and locking memory cards to your account.
  3. I discovered a really easy method that works on Invisible and should work on all other modes as well for the big group fight before the last boss. You'll need to purchase all the knife skills before attempting this and a smoke bomb. First kill all the other enemies so only the Dhurlga is left. Use a smoke bomb and go behind him, no need to crouch, and press R for Stealth kill. When it falls, hold R button to keep knifing his core. When it gets up, start tapping R instead so you can go for another stealth kill and knock it over. Then just keep holding R and the core will just pop before you know it! No need to waste any other bottles or ammo on the Dhurlga so you can easily cheese the last boss. You can also use this method for no tentacles destroyed for Episode 3 medal. Play on Casual and throw a smoke bomb, then use a stealth attack. Don't do anything and wait for it to get up and if you are fast enough you can go for another kill without needing to use another bottle. On Casual two Stealth kills will make Dhurlga retreat without destroying any tentacles. For the second fight, quickly kill the Revenant and blob thrower, then use smoke bottle and just get the hell out, since any more attacks might risk destroying his tentacle. For Episode 2 Barry medal for follow-up attacks, you can easily get it with decoy bottles. First max out Claire/Barry follow up attack skill and maybe the sub-weapon skill, just in case, cuz mine was maxed when I attempted this. Play on Casual, then shoot the Revenant's weakpoint to expose it and throw a decoy bottle. Once it falls, press R twice to kill it. Take note that some Revenants will die with only 1 attack while others will just get up again. Ignore the Revenants that can't be killed with 2 follow-up attacks and just kill them normally.
  4. I think Claire is mandatory plus you must not use bottles. I remember using 2 smoke bottles to kill some Glasps and no trophy popped for me, then replayed and only killed enemies using shotgun and the trophy popped for me.

  6. Platinum #156 Severed Enjoyment: 9/10 Difficulty: 3.5/10 Made Whole Obtain every trophy in the game A lot of people kept recommending this game if you own a Vita, so decided to give it a try and boy did I enjoy it a lot. From the same creators of Guacamelee (another title I also enjoyed a lot except for that damn combo chicken trophy and navigating the secret treetops level. That was some seriously insane platforming), comes a fruit-ninja like game, but with gore and blood, set in an apocalyptic world kind of like the Land of the Dead I guess. When you come across a mirror and get a first look at the protagonist, she's missing an ENTIRE ARM!!! No wonder she starts the game with like half HP. There's a lot of fighting and puzzle-solving in this short game. I only meant to try it for like an hour but kept playing for more than three hours cuz of how fun this game is. It's really nice how you can move with both the directional buttons and the X O T S buttons. So if your fingers get tired from swiping too much, you can just switch hands! Unlike our protagonist.... That said I don't want to spoil too much so if you are a Vita owner or have a Switch, I recommend you give this game a try. I thought I would play a short easy game after playing Deception 4, but boy did I enjoy every moment spent playing and left hungering for more. Wish there was a Severed 2.
  7. Platinum #155 Deception IV Blood Ties Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 7.5/10 Trap MasterAcquire all trophies A unique game where you kill people by setting traps. Unlike most games the protagonist does not have the ability to fight and instead, sets traps and lures people onto them, then kills them off by setting off a combo of traps. Basically, you are the Devil's daughter and your task is to free him by luring and killing the Saint's descendants that originally sealed him. The game has four different endings, and sadly you need to play through the story four times but only your first playthrough is going to be the hardest because you need to fulfill all of the daemon requests your three servants give you. If it's your first time playing a game like this, then you will have a hard time unless you are very creative. Good thing that there are video and text walkthroughs available, but for a first-timer it isn't easy, but you will get better with repeated attempts. Although the guy in the video captured targets with high capture points, there is no need to capture people at all except for requests (Capture points have no value other than bragging rights). And although he doesn't use even a single ability and didn't get hit even once, that's impossible for noobs like us, so buy the recovery ability when available cuz it's going to be your best friend. Other useful abilities are Paralyze Beam and Enrage Beam, so use whichever suits you best. Once the requests are out of the way, you should have become good enough to create your own trap combos and play through the story again without any need for handholding this time lol. After this will be mission mode where you will attempt to accomplish an objective within the given time frame, and they get progressively more difficult, so definitely don't attempt this until you have seen all the endings and fully upgraded all the traps. Especially mission 89 which took me an entire hour. Capturing three enemies without being hit even once? With two appearing at the same time with one of them chasing after your ass with a spear (Can't blame him. I mean just look at that fine piece of work. Those tattoos at the bottom are VERY distracting during gameplay 😏) and the other one sniping you constantly with a crossbow. Then the moment you capture one, a teleporting assassin shows up who is not only very fast, but can throw daggers at you, slice you up if he gets too close and did I mention he freaking TELEPORTS? But after all that you should have close to half a million exp points and now you need to grind till you reach a million. Found the easiest way is to load up a cross quest and use a simple trap combo of iron rake, spark rod and hell fire. This easy setup will net you 2000 exp per minute, so sit back and watch two movies as you keep repeating this over and over and over and over.... You can also unlock costumes from other Deception titles, Ninja Gaiden and even Atelier Totori! Verdict: A game that takes some getting used to, but once you have acclimatised to it, oodles of fun as you think of ELABORATE, HUMILIATING and SADISTIC ways to kill people. That said the platinum is a bit challenging and quite grindy, so no wonder it's sitting at 1.21% rarity. I myself gave up on it twice, but third time's the charm as they say, and decided to persevere through and finally succeeded after 6 years!
  8. Platinum #150 ACCEL WORLD VS. SWORD ART ONLINE: MILLENNIUM TWILIGHT Millennium ConquerorObtained all trophies Difficulty: 3/10 Enjoyment: 7/10 (After all that tedious grinding for plat: 3/10) With this I have successfully platted all 4 Sword Art Online games on the Vita! Boy, I thought Hollow Fragment was the grindiest SAO game but this one has successfully proved me wrong. That damn reaching 500 skill level for an AW character was bad enough since they can't spam buff skills unlike SAO characters, making it a boring grind where you are repeating the same move hundreds of times, but then you got that stinking blacksmith trophy that requires you to upgrade a weapon 10 times. To upgrade a weapon to a higher rank you need to enhance it ten times, then you can transform it from rank 1 to 2, and keep repeating this damn process until you reach rank 10. From rank 4 onwards, enhancing starts costing a whopping amount so you'll need to farm the same mission hundreds of times to have enough cash. But it's even worse in ranks 7 and 8, cuz you need to farm RARE monster materials that cannot be bought. But in rank 9 you need those damn phoenix claws for most upgrades, and these are a SUPER RARE drop from a boss, so it took me like a dozen tries to get just one to drop, and I needed like 8 of them in total! Plus you need a retarded amount of super expensive ores as well. But the worst would be the hundred titles trophy. To get titles you have to do feats like hunt 300 monsters of a type, make characters reach level 1000 (which requires a s*** ton of grinding), play in one of the fields for 10 hours, etc. I got so fed up with grinding character to lv1000, that I just left my Vita idle to rack up 10 hours in each location and got the plat that way. Leaving the grind aside, I really enjoyed the crossover. Since Accel World takes place about 20 years into the future in the world of SAO, I really enjoyed the interactions between the AW and SAO characters. Especially fighting the pure kings of seven colors from AW was a blast. Out of the four SAO games, Lost Song is the easiest and most enjoyable to play, followed by Hollow Realization which was grindy but doable and I loved it so much, especially the new characters Premier and Tia, who are fantastic waifus!!! I got the plat before I even started the DLC, but continued onto finishing the DLCs and postgame content, which easily added more than 30 hours of gameplay to it. Platinum #151 HOTLINE MIAMI 2: WRONG NUMBER TROPHY ADDICTUnlock all Trophies Difficulty: 8.5/10 Enjoyment: 6/10 In case you aren't familiar with Hotline Miami, this is a game where you play in a top-down style and need to kill all the enemies in a room, before doing the same in the other rooms to finally clear the stage. Enemies die in one hit but the same applies to you as well. Meaning this is a game where you die, die, die, die, die, A LOT! I really like how bloody the game is despite employing retro graphics. You can see crushed skulls with gray matter leaking out, arms hacked off, torso split in two, stomach blown open with intestines scattered about and a TON of blood. Compared to 1 though you play as multiple different characters across different timelines, making the story super confusing until you look at one of those story explained on Steam, but this isn't a game where you are playing for the story anyway. The essence of the game is basically: "Do you enjoy hurting other people?" Unlike 1 where you have a myriad of different abilities available, you only get to use select abilities in a few of the levels only, so no easy way to cheese this game. 2 is so much harder than 1, that just halfway through I already got the thousand deaths trophy. Then there's stinking hard mode. All the levels completely flipped around, so they feel unfamiliar plus enemies react super fast, much faster than the player can react and input commands. No more lock-on targeting, and to add insult to injury, guns have half the ammunition, so you'll have to become an expert at manual aiming but the accuracy of most guns really suck. A lot more special enemies like dogs that more often kill you than not, katana guys that are immune to gunfire and fat b***** who I really hate the most above all other enemies cuz they can only be killed by gunfire, plus take a few seconds to die, giving them ample time to kill you before they cough up blood and keel over, unless you use a shotgun. Seriously are their stomachs made out of titanium or something for blades and axes to have no effect on them? But the worst part of hard mode would be the windows. There are windows pretty much everywhere, so not many hiding places and I can't even count the number of times I've been killed by shots coming offscreen through those damn windows. Casualties is definitely the most challenging mission on hard mode for me, cuz when you are about to enter the damn facility there are windows on both sides full of gunmen plus a fatso with a gun, then the ammunition for reloading is in a difficult to reach place full of enemies plus more windows to watch out for. As the soldier you can't pick up guns but need to resupply your chosen armament at set points. I thought hard mode would be my toughest challenge but getting A+ on all levels proved to be far tougher than I could have imagined. Especially 11, 12 and 24. Dead Ahead wasn't too bad but Death Wish took me three tries to get A+. You play as four different guys but I can only get a full combo run with the first guy. It's really difficult with the other characters cuz it feels like the level is designed against their abilities. The last mission too took many retries cuz it's the last mission I guess. The writer's levels were really easy once you knew the trick of disarming guns, allowing you to easily obtain a high combo count. I never even knew about the writer's rage mode mechanic which was needed to kill a special chainsaw guy in hardmode that just wouldn't die no matter what I did. It was chore and a half but I'm finally done with this game. I thought getting 50k kills would require an additional 5+ hours of grinding but who could have imagined that the moment I started my grind, the first enemy I killed caused the trophy and plat to pop! Just like that☝️. I'll go back to playing Deception 4 Blood Ties after this and see how far I can get this time. It doesn't have a plat rarity of 1.21% for nothing. My current goal during COVID is to reach 175 plats on the Vita alone. Problem is most of my remaining backlog is full of long games that will take quite a while to plat, but I want to completely milk the worth out of my Vita before I buy a PS5.
  9. I've gotten that error code a few times when I've left a game open for too long, like a few days, and the game then crashes on me. Normally you can start the game again from your previous save without any problems. However, after opening Atelier Rorona Plus after a long time, after playing for a while the game completely crashed on me and every time I start the game I get an error no matter what. Luckily, I had a backup on my PC using Content Manager and after restoring it, I played it again for a bit and then got the same error again. Searching Google, the problem seems to be a corrupt save file so in your case you could try deleting and doing a fresh install of the game. I was close to finishing my first playthrough in Rorona and didn't wanna start again, so after trying various things I switched off my Wifi and didn't get any more problems for this game! So yeah try deleting and installing the game again. If you have a backup of your save, then as long as the backup save isn't corrupt, hopefully you don't have to start from scratch again. And for games that say Network Features may be disabled during the use of this application, try turning off your Wifi in advance to avoid any potential problems.
