  1. My gameplay guide for the "Another Man's Treasure" trophy for Final Fantasy IX has been published.
  2. Platinum #58: Marvel's Spider-Man I'm normally not a huge fan of the Superhero stuff, but I've heard nothing but great things about this game so I decided to give it a go. Needless to say, I can definitely see where people were coming from in terms of praise. It was great to simply swing across buildings in Manhattan and check out the sights. Platinum Difficulty: 3/10 Estimated Time To Platinum: ~25 Hours Game Enjoyment: 9/10
  3. Platinum #57: Wolfenstein: The Old Blood While a short game, this entry in the Wolfenstein series was pretty good in my opinion. The gun combat felt very fluid and the chapter/level design was really well done I think. As for the platinum, it is a little more on the difficult side in my opinion primarily due to the Gold Medal challenges. While those can get frustrating at times, the rest of the game's trophies aren't really that difficult. Platinum Difficulty: 5/10 Time to Platinum: ~20 Hours Game Enjoyment: 8/10
  4. As a guide writer, I think this would a great idea in general. There have been some games that I written and constantly look at the difficulty and wonder if others would agree. My main example is the "Hail To The King" Trophy in Final Fantasy IX. Mechanically, it's the most difficult trophy in the game by far, having to tap X in perfect rhythm for multiple minutes during a Jump Roping minigame. There is a workaround to this trophy that requires some outside applications. If you were to use this method, then the trophy is pretty trivial in general. For those who are unable to use the aforementioned method will probably look at my 6/10 difficulty rating and think I'm completely nuts.
  5. I have a couple here: Platinum #55: Assassin's Creed II. Going from Assassin's Creed Odyssey to this was very daunting. How different the mechanics, feel, and controls of this game was. All-in-all, I did enjoy this game aside from navigating the rooftops of Venice. The platinum was pretty simple overall. Platinum Difficulty: 3/10 Time To Platinum: ~20 Hours Game Enjoyment: 7/10 Platinum #56: A Hat In Time. This kind of game is what a platformer should be in my opinion: Outstanding level design, charming characters/NPC's, great controls, and great music at that. While the game is a little short, it was a blast to play through from start to finish. Hopefully there will be a sequel in due time. Platinum Difficulty: 3/10 Time To Platinum: ~15 Hours Game Enjoyment: 9/10
  6. I'm going to start up a Gameplay Guide for Treasure Locations in Final Fantasy IX. These treasures are tied to Another Man's Treasure and in the trophy guide, I simply linked a written GameFaqs guide. I want to make one for use on this site so users can have an easier time finding them without the hassle of going to another site. Also, I've never written a Gameplay guide, so it'd be a nice change of pace from a general trophy guide.
  7. Platinum #54: Nier: Automata. Got this game during the Black Friday sale. All-in-all, it was a pretty good game with a nice story and cast of characters. Also, the combat was very fluent and felt very good. While I did use the in-game trophy shop to purchase a decent majority of the trophies, in the end, I did have a good time overall with this game. Platinum Difficulty: 2/10 (Assuming the in-game trophy shop is used. If not, then 3/10). Time To Platinum: ~30 Hours. Game Enjoyment: 8/10.
  8. There have been many guides posted this year and I commend everyone on an amazing job and year for trophy guides on this site. Below are my nominations: Exceptional DLC Guide of the Year: Grand Theft Auto V Online - The Doomsday Heist DLC Trophy Guide. Author: @Jiwan01. The most recent heist in GTA is known to be pretty difficult in terms of trophy obtaining and this guide does a great job with explaining all the intricate steps needed for the elusive Masterminds trophy. Along with that, the formatting is superb and makes it very easy-to-read. Exceptional Use of Original Content: Call of Duty: Black Ops III Trophy Guide. Author: @johncnstntn__. The pictures used in this guide are very well-detailed along with how they're formatted within some of the entries in this guide. These photos make it easy to depict different objects and Zombies within their respective trophy entry. Also, the various amounts of icons for different abilities help with navigation for finding different options within the menus. Exceptional Gameplay Guide: Yakuza Kiwami 2 Minigame Completion Gameplay Guide. Author: @Happy. The Yakuza games are very well known for their large number of mini-games and the requirements of them needed for 100% game completion. This gameplay guide I nominated did a great job at explaining all the mini-games, what they ask of the player for 100% completion. The use of pictures helps depict various things within said minigames that help with figuring out how they work to help the player achieve what needs to be done. Exceptional Walkthrough Guide: Claire - Full Trophy Walkthrough. Authors: @optimusmart and @Optinooby. The overall formatting and use of italicized lettering help make it a lot easier for users to follow what is important and the decisions that need to be made. Also, the colors that are used within the lettering help make things pop out and easier to see the options needed. Exceptional Use of Formatting: Valkyria Chronicles 4 Trophy Guide. Author: @cckerberos. With many missions in this game, it's best to have a map that helps depict everything that needs to be done. This guide goes the extra mile and adds the map to everything along with what each mission asks of the player. Also, the use of many tables in various entries help makes everything easier to read and allows the information to be organized. Exceptional Niche Game Guide: A Hat In Time Trophy Guide. Author: @BritishKingdra. This guide overall does a great job with depicting boss fights with each of their phases. Also, for finding all the time pieces, they have their respective missions well laid out and have a very good description of how to complete each mission. Exceptional Quality Upkeep: Shenmue Trophy Guide. Author: @StacFace92 and they have done a great job replying to peoples' comments and taking advice on how to update the guide in terms of wording and have made sure that all information on the guide was well kept and updated with other user suggestions and any fixes that needed to be made. Overall Guide of the Year Nomination Stardew Valley Trophy Guide Authors: @Jelloycat and @Frosty This guide has it all: Amazing formatting with numerous tables depicting items and other various things needed for each entry. Also, this guide has an exceptional use of icons, pictures, videos, etc for all the minerals, friendships, and so on. The use of colors for various entries help make information stand out and easy to read for users. Lastly, the roadmap is very descriptive and does a great job guiding the player on what needs to be done and when.
  9. Best of luck to everyone for this year's Guide of the Year awards!
  10. Halt State from Overwatch: Pull enemies into 1000 damage with a single use of Orisa's Halt! in Quick or Competitive Play. I've heavily considered boosting this trophy for a while, but I was playing a quickplay match and, without really trying, it popped. Just goes to show that a lot of the trophies in this game rely on luck more than anything. Feels nice to be back at 100% completion for Overwatch again for the first time in a long time.
  11. Platinum #51: Spyro The Dragon Platinum Difficulty: 2/10 Time To Platinum: ~10 Hours Enjoyment: 9/10 Platinum #52: Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage Platinum Difficulty: 2/10 Time To Platinum: ~10 Hours Enjoyment: 9/10 Platinum #53: Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon Platinum Difficulty: 3/10 Time To Platinum: ~10 Hours Enjoyment: 9/10 Just chiming in like a lot of others as of late for the Spyro trilogy. As a whole, all three of these games were a blast to play. I played Spyro (especially 2 and 3) when I was younger and when I heard of the remasters, then I was simply thrilled. They play great, control great, and look great at that. In terms of the platinums, these three games really are not that difficult. I find it odd that Spyro 3 does not require a 117% completion for all the trophies, but it is what it is. Hopefully, these remasters may pave the way for a new Spyro game in the future.
  12. I sent a message to ThaKingTropy asking if he would like to team up with the others. If the others are cool with it, then I'd be willing to join them.
  13. ThaKingTropy and I will be collaborating on a guide for Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage.
  14. My Guide for Assassin's Creed Odyssey was published (sorry again for the late post).
  15. I'm digging the new avy!
