  1. :platinum: #236 STIKBOLD! - I love this game, I love the story, I love the game play, I love the music, I love the quirkiness and you should definitely play it. It's a fun easy platinum that you can do in very short time and it doesn't overstay it's welcome and you can still keep playing it even after you've gotten everything :)

    Meanwhile, a game that takes a long time, does overstay it's welcome and makes you want to kill yourself... it's Pain! 

    (Final PS3/backlog game)

     

    So my Six Axis controller arrived in the post and I was going to spend all this week trying to unlock the 'Monkey-On-Monkey' trophy, the second of the annoying Spank the Monkey trophies. I started it on Tuesday afternoon and after trial and error I eventually got lucky in the evening and popped the trophy. So at 92% completion, the final trophy left now is King of Pain which requires me to unlock everything in Downtown. I already said I have 52/66 in game trophies unlocked for it and about 12 of them are related to fun with explosives so I said I'll finish up on a few game modes since I'm ahead of schedule. There's one in-game trophy for Spank the Monkey that requires me to get 20 straight runs in a single game AKA torture on the mind and then there's one in-game trophy for Mime Toss which requires all launches to result in the mime breaking glass on the highest difficulty AKA torture on the soul. Anyway, 4pm I was on it and I was aiming to get them both done and then as time went on I said if I can get one of them done then I'll be happy at least and after a lot of practice, controller issues, getting drunk I got the Mime Toss trophy at 2am 😤 I might have a go at the Spank the Monkey one today but it's my Dad's birthday so I might have a break away from it but hey ho, progress at least... more frustration I can ejaculate out later I guess 🙄😅

      @Copanele This...

      It's a good game and the theme is catchy as hell but fuck, it's difficult 😭

      OMG I have heard of this game...it's super tough to 100% apparently xD but it looks dumb in a great way, not gonna lie.

      Best of luck in spanking that monkey hahah!

      I have seen this game before*

      @Copanele One of the comments in the trailer's video summed it up perfectly
      'Pointless..but fun!

      Hazardous...but fun!! 

      Total waste of developer and players' time.........but fun!!!'

      I predict it'll take me another couple of weeks to pop the last trophy but it will be satisfying when I get it ^_^ 

  2. :platinum: #235 RIME - This was a fun game, the more I played it the less I knew on what was going off with the story but the second playthough mopping up made slightly more sense, I wouldn't say it was game of the year or one for the ages but it's worth picking up, I got this finished in no time at all :)

     

    Now let's talk about a game I'm not getting finished in no time at all... Pain.

    (Final PS3/Backlog game)

     

    I've been using a controller that doesn't support six axis so I've pretty much been making it twice as hard for myself so I'm watching a controller on ebay now but basically when you shake it you get some extra move time once you've landed and here's me going without because I'm a fucking boss. So I got the 'Buzzmonkey' trophy which is needed for King of Pain anyway and next week I'm going to get the second Monkey trophy on the Museum environment and then my time will be dedicated for the final trophy, King of Pain which involves getting all the in-game trophies for Downtown (I'm on 52/66) and some of them are a bastard and a lot of it is me relying on this six axis controller so I can get it done but I'm now at 90% completion :)

      @Honor_Hand the six axis on pain allows you to shake the controller to earn a super ooch which gives you extra movement. All my controllers don't support six axis so I've made it harder for myself but I'll need it to finish the in game trophies for king of pain otherwise I'm in for a nightmare 😅😭

  3. :platinum: #234 MAGES OF MYSTRALIA - It's actually quite a fun little RPG, there isn't a trophy guide for it so I had to rely on the Steam guide for it but one trophy didn't pop on me (The Rekt Tower) and I thought i'd have to play the entire game again but thankfully it lets you redo it even after you've beaten the game so getting 100% with a full arsenal of spells made that trophy a breeze.

     

    Meanwhile on a game that isn't so much a breeze... 'Pain'

     

    I got the Trill trophy early as an incentive to carry on going with the game whilst I was trying to get the platinum scores on Hold n Cold and Clown Toss which took me a good majority of the week but I've finally unlocked the Ninja Pwn trophy which is now my rarest trophy ever. A friend of mine has just started this time as well but he's making good progress as I've shared all my hard won knowledge and secrets to guide him through it. Next week if I get time, I'm going to work on the Spank the Monkey stuff and see if I can pop those 2 trophies before finally going for the last trophy ever... 'King of Pain' 

  4. I think getting 100% on Pain for PS3 will definitely be my Super Saiyan Blue moment 😅

  5. I give you the PS5!

  6. :platinum: #233 LIFE IS STRANGE 2 - Overall it was good but it was very convoluted in places and some parts were dragged out way more than they were needed too. Things that left me scratching my head were:

    1) Why would Sean and Daniel go on the run in the first place for a crime they didn't commit? that just makes them suspicious especially when there's no evidence to tie them to the murder of the police officer, yet there is evidence to tie the police officer for murdering their father as the bullet from his gun would be in his chest :/ 
    2) Daniel was a whiny shit, I love how pissed he was because I didn't tell him the truth and said how he hated me and I wasn't his brother but soon forgave me moments afterwards

    3) The game is very political mentioning Trump's wall (And yes I did kick the shit out of the redneck at the gas station because he deserved it)

    4) I really wanted to bang Cassidy but ended up kissing Finn after being in auto pilot and nodding and agreeing with everything he said, so I went back to chapter select and went skinny dipping with her but because I agreed to the heist with Finn, the little cock blocker screwed up my chances of me getting erect over a bunch of graphics and pixels

    5) Karen was just very apathetic but I listened to what she had to say because I felt like 'that's how the story should go' and at first, I thought she was an arsehole but I came round to liking her a little bit

    6) In the first Life is Strange, I was a dick to David whilst David tried being nice to me, in CBTS, I tried to be nice to David whilst David was a dick to me... in LIS2, I ignored his psycho babble bullshit and made my mind up that I am going to Mexico because why make an entire game on going to Mexico only to surrender at the last hurdle? 

    7) Trying to convert Daniel to come back to my side and away from the religious cult leader was pathetic and shows how naive and weak of a character he really is

    8) Whilst in Away, I kept noticing they mention Safe Haven and here's me with a fucking eye patch and I'm like, how is this not a rip off to Metal Gear Solid? But at least they don't talk like Thunderbirds puppets in those games, just bore you to death.

    9) I obviously ignored David, brought the pain to the cops and went to Mexico and got the drug dealer looking ending and as I looked at Daniel, I just thought concluded that he was an Infamous knock off

     

    IN OTHER NEWS, MY FINAL PS3 BACKLOG GAME 'PAIN'

    I got 8 trophies whilst doing this and LIS2, I got the 100 million points and 69 million points trophies for Downtown with David Hasselhoff. I spent hours getting the platinum medal on Normal for fun with explosives and about an hour getting the platinum medal on Normal for Mime Toss and getting the 2 trophies tied in with that. I got the Bigger Dicks Balls trophy after a couple of hours which I thought would cause me a lot of trouble but it wasn't too bad. I ticked off the Horse and Bowling trophies and I got the Clown Toss trophy. I made a start on the Ninja Pwn stuff but I heard you need a platinum medal in Normal, Hard and Painful to unlock Platinum difficulty which might be an arse ache so I might spend next week just trying to Platinum the Spank the Monkey stuff instead so I can get the practice to tick off the two trophies related to that... so far, 83% ^_^

  7. I don't understand Pain on PS3, the guide online gives it a 9/10 in difficulty and I thought like Max Payne 3, I'd be pulling my hair out and spending months on the game. I mean sure, it's hard and some of the trophies took me hours to get but it's not impossible 🙄

  8. Hey stranger how are things? ^_^ 

  9. :platinum: #232 SERIAL CLEANER - This was a fun game, didn't take too long to beat. It had it's annoying moments but overall it was fun ^_^

    MEANWHILE, ON PAIN... (My final backlog/PS3 game)

     

    I spent all day Thursday and a good portion of Friday getting the Zoom Raider trophy which required me to go through all 6 secret passages in one run on 3 different game modes. The first one took me hours to do for obvious reasons... practice. The second one took me about an hour and the 3rd one (the fun with explosives mode) took me about 5 hours, why? well the first time I did it, it was on the wrong fun with explosives mode so I switched to the right mode and I did it again about 3 times but the final passage way glitched and wouldn't spit me out at the other end assuming I blew too much stuff up and it got stuck down the hole so I slept on it and gave it another try and did it in about an hour and then I went back and got a couple of the base game trophies and I've just unlocked 'The Dude' and I'm halfway through the bowling strikes trophy so I'm aiming for 2 bronze and a gold tomorrow whilst I do Life Is Strange 2 :)

  10. Hi all, I've been following this walkthrough (link below) to get all the trophies for this game however, I can't get the photo friend trophy to pop and I've tried everything. I've tried taking photos in different orders but nothing is working. My inventory will display photos with the star, the gingerbread heart but it won't display the photo with the hand and I need that photo so I can pop the trophy (after I take the photo with the ring on it) I even have the first photo (goal without rufus) but I can't find a solution to fix this bug online anywhere so I'm wondering if anybody has had a similar experience and what they did to fix it... Many Thanks Adam https://www.playstationtrophies.org/forum/deponia-doomsday/334020-deponia-doomsday-trophy-walkthrough.html
  11. :platinum: #231 JUST CAUSE 4 - Story was a bit meh but the gameplay was fun. My only issue with it is that it's very much the same as Just Cause 3 as in they've gone way over the top with collectables to the point where it isn't fun at all. On top of that, wingsuit challenges are one thing but going through rings with certain vehicles at certain speeds gets frustrating very quick when the NPC's decide to give you a wanted level and fuck up your attempts right at the last second.

     

    PROGRESS ON PAIN (My final PS3 game) 

     

    I made a start on the museum DLC and I'm 2 trophies away from finishing it. However, work have decided to pull a dick off and got me to work over the weekend even though I'm suppose to be off till June so I might just get a couple of easier trophies over the weekend on the Abusement Park DLC. Like Max Payne 3, I got another stack of 'baby' games to play whilst doing Pain so I'm not getting frustrated too quick as well as still earning trophies. With everything said, I have 22 trophies out of the 41 needed for 100% and I'm 45% completion so technically depending on how you look at it, I'm halfway through the game already :)

  12. PAIN Sore Spots & Alpine Ski Lodge DLC 100%

    WHY OH WHY DO I PUT MYSELF THROUGH THIS?!? xD 

  13. :platinum: #223 VENETICA - Despite my cynicism at first glance, it's actually a very good game and I had a lot of fun with it. It is buggy and annoying in a few places such as 4 enemies ganging you up in a corner and hitting you all together at the same time giving you one of many cheap deaths. I really thought it would be a shit game because I bought it years ago cheap in an exchange shop but I actually liked it. There are a few issues such as the lack of audio where you hear the same line over and over again from the town's citizens but I would go as far as to consider it a hidden gem :)

     

    Now I only have one PS3 game left to do and that's PS3 and my backlog on a whole all done. My strategy would be the same as I did for Max Payne 3 where I accumulate a stack of 'baby' games with an easy platinum to them and knock out one game a week or so by doing a few hours a day of it whilst the rest of my time gets pissed away in trying to complete Pain. But I'm going to do Just Cause 4 first before I throw myself into that horrible sadistic cycle once more xD

      If it's just through a message, I've no problem helping people and while I'm not going to ask people to say thanks for helping, I'll make a mental note of that next time they ask for help ;)

       

      Helping out in MP is a different story. I absolutely won't help someone I don't know. It's gotta be a friend I've talked to before and have gotten to know them a little bit and not on a superficial level. 

    3. ChristIllusion12

      ChristIllusion12

      It was just through a message they contacted me but I won't be helping them again. But I'm in the same boat as @PooPooBlast as far as MP goes, if I know the person personally then yeah sure but otherwise no, unless if they're prepared to help me out on a MP game in return, there was a time where I boosted AC: Brotherhood with a guy after he helped me get the MP trophies for Brutal Legend ^_^

    4. Spaz

      Spaz

      Don't waste your time with randoms too much. I set up boosting sessions for games where they simply did not show up.

       

      I've had a couple people here PSNProfiles help me with an online trophy or two, huge difference in how they treated me and I treated them.

  15. :platinum: #229 KILLER IS DEAD - I just had no enthusiasm to want to play or continue playing this one, it's not necessarily bad but it doesn't give much stretch to the imagination and is heavily repetitive. Every level you mash square to hack through all the cannon fodder and then fight a boss at the end, rinse and repeat. The story made little sense to me but I will say the visuals are very good. I did an all-nighter last night just slogging through all the challenges trying to get this game done and was one trophy shy from the platinum until about an hour ago when I finished it after cleaning the house all day. I have Venetica next and looking at the gameplay and reading the reviews, I think this one will be another stinker but after that, I only have one more game to do on PS3 and then I'm all caught up on the backlog... unfortunately the game is Pain and it's suppose to be a real bitch to complete. 

  16. :platinum: #228 DOOM - Brilliant game, story was good, soundtrack was even better. Not really a great deal I can say about it, the only annoying part was the randoms fucking up our multiplayer boosts but in the end we prevailed otherwise I would have had this game finished a lot sooner 😅

  17. :platinum: #227 WET - I was warned in the trophy guide that this game would be frustrating and they weren't kidding. From a professional point of view, this game lacked story and the QTE sequence in the final chapter with the bosses was pathetic but it made my life easier as far as less work is concerned. With that said, upgrades don't carry over playthroughs and they must all be purchased in a single playthrough and I was 1000 points shy from the final upgrade so I had to do a 5th playthrough on top of the 4 required for platinum. Points count mode was a chore as some levels I had to re do over and over again until I met the score requirement and some of the boneyard challenges were quite sadistic especially when Rubi doesn't always do what you tell her to do or how missing precise jumps costs you valuable time causing you to redo the challenge again. It took me a while to finish because I was just struggling for enthusiasm. Anyway, onwards with Killer is Dead... it could be enjoyable or it could be a bitch, who knows and who cares at this point :/

      Nice work! I remember liking it, but that was a long time ago. On Xbox, where I wouldn't care if I got every achievement. :P Killer is Dead is one I should try to go back to (including many others on my profile...). 

  18. 1000 points shy from unlocking all of Rubi's upgrades on WET and because upgrades don't carry over playthroughs, it means I have to do an entire playthrough again (on top of the 4 required for platinum) and hope and pray I get enough points this time to unlock all the upgrades. Oh what a time to be alive 😤

  19. :platinum: #226 WHEELMAN - This was actually surprisingly good fun, probably even going as far as to class it as a hidden gem on the PS3 along with Driver San Francisco. The story is a little bit meh but if you can see past that then the game play is really good. Getting S rank in all the side challenges were a pain though, some took 5 minutes and others were sadistic and took 2 hours, very much like the challenges in Just Cause 3. I only paid £2 for this game in the exchange shop about 3 years ago, money well spent! ^_^

      That's incredible! You should have it framed and put up on a wall or a shelf. That'll be a collector's item someday and it's an awesome bit of memorabilia to show off to your friends. Also a fun little conversation starter =)

      @James_Tonto I've been framing a lot of my band memorabilia what I've gotten from tours over the years, Anthrax, Black Sabbath, Metallica etc. 

       

      I will get this framed but I'll frame it along with a photo of me and Scott when I go to meet him ^_^ I'm also thinking of taking a photo of the lyrics and having it printed onto a t-shirt so I can show him and thank him personally and to show my dedication that I'm a hardcore Anthrax fan ^_^ 

  21. :platinum: #225 DAMNATION - This was fucking terrible. Another garbage game that was given to me and I decided to play it out of respect. I read up on the trophy guide and it says 1) beat the game on casual/hardcore getting all the collectables 2) beat the game on Insane in Co-Op. So I started step 1 and 10 minutes in, I was like this is torture so I used the in-game cheats to unlock insane mode and the super weapon and played it in co-op to the very end which made it easier but didn't make the game any better, it was shit. Bad graphics, story, voice acting, gameplay and it bugged and froze on me twice and yeah, I'm just glad to be done with it. Now I have to go to work in the morning (on my day off) to receive a letter but they wouldn't say what it was... I'm guessing disiplinary but nothing says 'I don't give two flying fucks about you' when you have to come out of self isolation to get a letter :/ 🙄

      @ChristIllusion12 Hey you have Wheelman too! Man I never see that game on anyone's trophy checklist, at least in recent memory. I only vaguely recall playing the game way back in the early days of the PS3. But I did remember having fun, especially with the vehicular combat.

       

      WET is going to be a hard platinum. You will at minimum need to play the full game about 3 or 4 times. To break up the monotony, I recommend trying to space it out over a week or two. Go for another platinum at the same time. And prepare to die a lot in the harder difficulties, especially if you didn't upgrade the correct weapon in the previous level. Though that's only on harder difficulties, the lower ones are much more merciful.

    4. ChristIllusion12

      ChristIllusion12

      @James_Tonto I'm enjoying it so far but I'm hard to please so there's time yet for it to spoil itself, I don't think Vin Diesal is a good fit for the game but the gameplay is good so far but in terms of WET, I try and plat one game at a time if I can help it but if I need too then I'll probably split my time between it and another game. When I went for the Max Payne 3 platinum, I did a couple of hours on a telltale/point and click game to vent out my frustration whilst doing The Shadows Rushed Me trophy, got there in the end though xD 

  22. I've just started Damnation on PS3 and what a fucking awful piece of shit it is. I started the game following what the trophy guide told me to do and after 10 minutes it was so painful that I used the in-game cheats to unlock hard difficulty, unlock the super gun and put it into split screen mode just so I can be done with it swiftly as possible. I loaded the game up today and within an hour it's froze on me twice so I'm admitting defeat for the day and getting some sleep instead since I'm on nights tonight but yeah, well done Adam! 🙄

  23. UK Download Festival is cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic so my opportunity to meet Kiss is up in smoke

     

    Or is it?

     

    Looking into seeing them either at another show in Europe later in the Summer or along with Doyle in the US in October because that's the kind of stubborn fuck I am :)

  24. :platinum: #224 WANTED: WEAPONS OF FATE - It was alright, it was shit but it was shit in a good way as it was fun to play with no major issues except the guide is a little outdated so I had to try different methods with the 'glitch' until I found one that worked to get all the difficulty trophies done without having to do multiple playthroughs ^_^

  25. I bought the VIP Meet and Greet for Kiss in June and now they've cancelled all of their VIP Meet and Greets temporarily because of Coronavirus precautions. I get it but I'm also pissed off at the same time as it's one of the few pleasures I've been looking forward to this year now I'm debating worse case scenario if the VIP Meet and Greet is still cancelled in June then I might plan to get the VIP Meet and Greet at their final show in New York next year 🙄

      If I know anything about Kiss, they’ll be selling Meet and Greets until they all kick the bucket. If it doesn’t happen this time, you’ll have opportunity in the future. You WILL get this!

      @DaivRules Funny you should say that because I found the news out on Blabbermouth.net but I can't find the source as to where they have announced that they are temporarily cancelling their meet and greets and they are still selling them on their official website so I'm just holding on for now and see what they do next 🙄
