  1. Hey! 1) I've had this question before, and I do feel bad because obviously I'm sharing it here, but I struggle to scrape together time to do this. I'm working on a few guides at the moment and also have a full-time job. I'd be happy to assist anyone who wants to do this, though I'm not sure how the walkthrough-esque format would work in the structure of a PSNProfiles guide. 2) Wow, thanks for raising this! I've never seen that before. I fiddled with a few things and cleared some caches and it's all working again now. You might need to clear your browser cache if it's still happening for you.
  2. My buddy @MrZhangetsu and I got this platinum together yesterday in a single 12-hour sitting. We had planned on having a break in-between and finishing it today but we were just hooked. The game is incredible, it really is. While we played through the game, I was working on a full trophy guide that will chronologically walk you through the locations of all 25 minigames and the 18 optional trophies, I'm fairly excited about it as it's a pretty good guide if I may say so myself! With it, you can play the game with confidence that you won't miss anything along the way. I hope you find it useful! Also, if you're not sold on the game just yet, then my Platinum Review might twist your arm: Have a great rest of your weekend
  3. @realm722 Wow, thanks for the shoutout, man! I do not miss the days when I was working on this plat. I just remember sitting on the carpet in front of my TV, trying to get as close as I can to the point I was focusing on, so I couldn't possibly mess up the timing. I spent hours on end getting redder and redder until finally pulling it off. I'm glad my trophy guide at least helped to ease the pain for you in your run at it!
  4. Hey, good looking out! Thank you! To confirm this is real, I found mention of it in the official patch notes for the game's Steam version: Seems the developers explicitly wanted us to have access to this hidden feature!
  5. It's just like that sometimes, sadly. Other times you'll get 2 every time for a few turns. RNG strikes again. Once your drones are powerful enough to plow through the stage in a few seconds you can just stick something on YouTube or Netflix and select the stage again every time it ends. You'll probably have to do it for a few hours, I know I did.
  6. Yeah, this is how I did it, too That Proving Grounds stage takes 30 seconds with 4-gun drones (I timed it) and can easily get as quick as 20 seconds depending on how long you end up having to farm it. It helps to know that every 10 times you run it, that's 60 cars which converts into 6 diamonds, so keep an eye on how many cars you've destroyed too. I had 1,250 destroyed cars and 310 diamonds when I did my final reset, giving me the 435 diamonds needed.
  7. Yeah, every time you beat a boss you have a chance of 1-3 diamonds. In my experience farming them, it was more common that you'd get 2 than anything else, but there were some really long stints where I wouldn't get any at all for a few runs.
  8. Completely agree. My platinum journey was about 5 hours longer than it should have been because I had no idea how many Diamonds I would need at the start of my run.
  9. Just got the platinum for this today. I started it a few days ago after seeing the trophy list and thinking it would just take 5-8 hours tops. In reality, it takes about 15-20 hours depending on how well you manage the Diamonds you earn. I wish I'd had a trophy guide when I started so I knew what to look out for, because everytime I thought I had enough diamonds another weapon came along with an even more ridiculous Diamond requirement. Either way, after some frustration, I finally made it to the end. For an idle clicker it sure felt like a lot of work. Here's the trophy guide I wish I had before I started, which I wrote as I played, during the lulls where the drones were doing all the work for me: If you're interested to know more about my experience, I have a platinum review as well, just detailing the Platinum Journey and the challenges I faced: I hope they come in handy! Have a great week ahead
  10. You can see your faction points on the right-hand side on the map screen
  11. Hey, yes there is! So, you can have up to three manual saves, which is just enough for the missable trophies. The missable trophies occur in the chapters "Maquette", "The Gateways", "The Spiral", and "The Exchange". As Maquette is only the second Chapter and the first chapter is super easy, I'd recommend making saves at the start of: The Gateways - Chapter 3 The Spiral - Chapter 6 The Exchange - Chapter 7 That way, you can enjoy your blind playthrough, safe in the knowledge that you can get back to those levels for cleanup with ease You'll still need to do your speed-run as a single playthrough, but if you get the missable trophies first then you can start using one of your manual save slots to save at the start of each speed run and then reload the save if the trophy doesn't pop. I hope that helps
  12. Good luck! We actually have guides for that too if you want them: Our Hard Mode Boss guides are particularly popular
  13. I have to imagine that these folks have already played the game on alt accounts or something. If you are already familiar with the puzzle solutions and can complete the speed runs on your first playthrough then it is completely possible to earn the platinum in less than an hour.
  14. I do believe that the save/reload trick works, and I do believe you when you say that you paused the game to check my videos, but for whatever indeterminate reason, it didn't work for us. Due to the inconsistency of this, I've updated the guide with instructions to try to avoid pausing the game, but I also mentioned our discussions and included a link to this forum post. Given the fact that I've been asked a few times, in a few different places, whether pausing stops the timer, I have to assume that others have tried to complete speed runs while pausing and have been unable to unlock trophies, just as we were in our tests. My only remaining theory is that a glitch is causing the inconsistencies and that a patch may fix this in the future. If anybody else reading this post has any experience with this issue, please reply and share your experience to hopefully help others who are also looking for answers.
  15. Actually, he just tried it again but without pausing and he got the trophy when he made it to the end. (it's @MrZhangetsu, he's lurking here somewhere). So far all of our tests suggest that pausing does not stop the timer. Is it possible that even while pausing you still managed to beat the levels under the time limit?
