  1. Last night I popped in Modern Warfare 3 for the first time in like 8 or 9 years. I was excited to replay the game and work towards the plat. The game froze up at the starting cutscene, so I tried loading in another level and it froze up there. I tried to clean the disc but to no avail. The disc was a dud.

     

    Oh well, thankfully used copies are super cheap on eBay. $5 later and I'll have a (hopefully) working version of the game next week.

      I am hopeful they will port it to PS4 or PS5 since I don't have a PS3 anymore :(

      @MikeCheck-- I feel like that is likely since we saw MW1 and MW2 get a remaster! I personally am just trying to wrap up a ton of trophy lists on my PS3 haha, so that's why I'm itching to play MW3!

  2. Update 3! 1. South Park: The Stick of Truth - 7% 2. Ratchet & Clank - 10% -> 97% - I started this game years ago and played through probably about 80% of it, so when I came back to it I just had to do a bit of clean-up on collectibles and misc trophies. I've gotten everything except the busted 1,000,000 Bolts trophy. Luckily this can be grinded passively with a glitch and a taped controller, so that's currently ongoing until this trophy pops! 3. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - 20% 4. Medal of Honor: Frontline - 85% -> 100% - Wrapped this one up a few days after my last update! 5. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen - 11% -> 40% - The bulk of my time since my last update has been spent on a new playthrough of this game. It took me some time to get into it but ended up really liking it. I'm in the postgame now but have a lot to do in my NG+ playthrough. I'm estimating about 40 hours left here. 6. Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - 100% 7. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga - 18% -> 32% - Wrapped up all the main Episode Levels and now have the 60 Hours+ of side content to wrap up! Honestly, this game fell a bit below my expectations which is a bit of a bummer, but my four-year-old likes to play it with me which makes it worth it of course.
  3. Hey! It looks like the Explorer trophy is possibly glitched for some players. I've run the mission through 3 times and it still is not unlocking. I've not been able to find any info about this online. Any tips or has anyone faced this before?
  4. Update 2! 1. South Park: The Stick of Truth - 7% 2. Ratchet & Clank - 10% 3. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - 20% 4. Medal of Honor: Frontline - 30% -> 85% - This has been my sole focus since the last update. I'm happy to say I'll be wrapping it up tonight (hopefully). The hard mode was brutal, and there were many levels that made me rage quit. But perseverance and a little luck got me through it, so now I am breezing through the misc. trophies on Easy mode and chapter select. Fun game all in all, but looking forward to being done with it. 5. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen - 11% 6. Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - 17% -> 100% 7. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga - 17% -> 18% - Wrapped up Episode 5 and got a little through Episode 6, lots more to be done here. All in all, not making the progress I was hoping for as quickly as I was counting on. Medal of Honor is taking more time than I anticipated. Luckily I am still on track, as I need to average 7% gains per day, and I am meeting exactly that so far if my calculations are correct. After MoH I may switch to Dragon's Dogma and get a full playthrough done, and then may split time between that and Star Wars. We shall see!
  5. Playing MoH Frontline on Hard Mode. After about an hour of attempts on one level (on top of two more hours of attempts earlier in the week), I'm on the last section of the mission, and the game freezes up....

     

    I can't take this 

  6. One week in and I'm happy with the progress so far! 1. South Park: The Stick of Truth - 7% 2. Ratchet & Clank - 10% 3. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - 20% 4. Medal of Honor: Frontline - 22% -> 30% - I'm playing through this one on Hard difficulty and it's been kicking my ass a little bit. The hardest part is that there are no checkpoints so some of the longer levels become very tense and if you fail near the end you've wasted 20 minutes! I'm currently stuck on a VERY long level, the longest one of the game I believe, so hopefully it will be smooth sailing after that 5. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen - 11% 6. Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - 17% -> 100% Was able to get this one wrapped up very quickly. Really fun and chill platinum! 7. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga - 17%
  7. @Ivotas Yes it is possible to get back there, I did so when doing the detective cases after defeating all three bosses. It's hard to describe, but you have to enter by going back down the way you came up after the fight. There is a detective case clue at the top of this room, where you have to use Glue Gel on a pipe to stop the water flow. From there, you can make your way down and back to where you fought Grundy. Sorry, I can't be any more descriptive than that, but it is possible!
  8. I personally got all Detective Clues and upgrades on my first playthrough, but the biggest benefit is to get the Blackest Night outfit on your first playthrough. You can almost never die with it on, which makes subsequent playthroughs a breeze. Doing the Detective Clues on your first playthrough also allows you not to worry about them moving forward, and gives you a good understanding of the maps. Additionally, this will mean that the remaining secrets (shown on the map selection screen) in each section of the prison are related to the armor/gauntlet upgrades that you will need to get on your final playthrough. That's just my input at least!
  9. I had the worst luck last night. I was playing Medal Of Honor and doing the Time Trials for the Tier 1 Mode Trophy.

     

    THREE separate times the game glitched out where I was unable to progress the level at all and had to reset after 15-20 minutes of playtime.

    I will be very happy when this trophy is in my rearview mirror.

  10. Last night I hit 200 Platinum Trophies earned. It felt really really good. Here's to 200 more!

  11. Looking forward to this challenge! My list this time around is very heavy on Playstation 3 Titles that I just need to get done! So here is my list: 1. South Park: The Stick of Truth - 7% 2. Ratchet & Clank - 10% 3. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - 20% 4. Medal of Honor: Frontline - 22% 5. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen - 11% 6. Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - 17% 7. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga - 17%
  12. Update #3 It has been two months since my last update, so my apologies for the delay. I, unfortunately, had a death in the family in late March which meant I had to do quite a bit of traveling across the country to visit family and attend memorials. There were a few weeks when I wasn't able to play at all, but it was certainly a nice (albeit difficult) time to be with family I have not seen in years. As such, I won't be finishing my list in the next few days, BUT, I have made really good progress on a few titles. 1. Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate - PS Vita - 19% > 76% - I should be finishing this one by the end of the month! I'm actually having a lot of fun with this one! 2. Medal of Honor - PS3 - 78% > 80% - I need to get back to this game and finish it off once and for all 3. Ratchet & Clank - PS3 - 10% - Sadly wasn't able to touch this one 4. Elden Ring - PS5 - 31% > 100% - I got this one back in early April and was luckily able to savescum the endings (the final boss was brutal). Overall GOTY for me so far 5. Demon's Souls - PS5 - 4% - I tried playing this the other night and got destroyed. 😥 6. Resident Evil 2 - PS4 - 32% 7. Crash Bandicoot: Warped - PS4 - 47% > 100% - Finally got this one off my list after years of inaction (also cleaned up Crash 2 while I was in the Crash groove) 8. Mass Effect 2 - PS4 - 0% > 100% - It was a joy to play this one again after five or so years since my last playthrough. While it's my least fave of the Trilogy, it's still one of the best games ever made. (Eff the Collector Ship on Insanity though) In addition to this, I also took 20 hours in April to grind out Fall Guys before the old launcher shut down so I was happy to mark that game off my backlog and get two shiny platinum from it thanks to autopops! Thanks for setting this up MidnightDragon and looking forward to seeing everyone else finish strong this week!
  13. Update #2 Elden Ring continues to dominate my gaming schedule. I'm at 62 hours in and probably not even halfway through the game. Thankfully some really good trophy guides have come out for the game and I've used them to ensure I get the platinum in one playthrough! I have all of the legendary weapons, sorceries, ashes, etc. that are available to me at this point in the game, and I've done all the bosses in the first half of the game also. I've also had the chance to boost some Medal of Honor MP trophies and tackled some of the more difficult ones. Just need to play a bit more of each game mode and hit max level and the online stuff is done. However, the SP trophy for beating all levels under "par" time is giving me some trouble. The game isn't hard, but in this mode, if you die you have to start from the beginning of the level. Some levels have a par time of 20 to 30 minutes, so it can be really demoralizing to die at the last section. It's also really hard to determine what your present health is. I've done 2 of 9 levels, so will continue to knock these out 1 or 2 levels per day. 1. Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate - PS Vita - 19% 2. Medal of Honor - PS3 - 38% > 78% 3. Ratchet & Clank - PS3 - 10% 4. Elden Ring - PS5 - 11% > 31% 5. Demon's Souls - PS5 - 4% 6. Resident Evil 2 - PS4 - 32% 7. Crash Bandicoot: Warped - PS4 - 47% 8. Mass Effect 2 - PS4 - 0%
  14. The General Radhan fight in Elden Ring is breaking my soul. I have put 5 hours of attempts into this fight alone. I have not been this miserable in a long time. Thoughts and prayers are appreciated.

      That fight sucks, no doubt about it. That was the point where I abandoned a low level game. I think I was around level 90 when I beat him, which just sounds...terrible, to me.

       

      You'll get it, but the worst part is, you'll feel very little triumph, because mostly, you'll just be a coward in battle. Happy hunting, though!

      I ended up finally getting him. I picked up an incantation that gave him scarlet rot, used my wonderous physck to tank his meteor move (I sucked at dodging it) and for the second part of the fight kept the mounds of dirt between me and his meteors. I let the summons do most of the work. Like you said @starcrunch061 - I felt no satisfaction from that victory at all, but glad it is behind me.

  15. Update 1 Elden Ring is such a fun game but it's hard to know how long it will take to earn all the trophies. Safe to say it will be a while! I'm also making strides with Medal of Honor and trying to set up boosting groups for some of the more difficult online trophies. Trophy Progress: Demon Souls: 2% > 4% Elden Ring: 2% > 11% Medal of Honor: 30% > 38%
