  1. @Beyondthegrave07 - When you get the chance, you can remove Yooka Laylee: The Impossible Lair from the "In Progress" list. I meant to post this a long time ago, but I kept forgetting. My bad.
  2. Congrats to all the winners! There were a ton of great guides this past year. Also, a huge Thank You to the folks who nominated guides that I was a part of. I was very stunned to see that a couple of the ones that I wrote/co-wrote made it in the top three of a couple of the categories.
  3. Awesome. Congrats! Good luck on Rapid Discord! I've had the same thing happen to me with Rapid Discord where I was ridiculously close to getting it. Just about keeping persistence.
  4. I ended up boosting Rapid Discord years ago after multiple hours of specifically going for it. In all honesty, like most trophies in the game, it comes down to luck and having everything fall strictly into the right place at the right time. It is frustrating but it's a matter of just keeping at it. Just be sure to not overdo it and burn yourself out of the game and/or get too frustrated when things aren't going right. Utilizing Zarya's Ultimate: Having someone on your team who can properly utilize Zarya's ultimate ability can provide a huge help for someone who's going for this trophy just like a plethora of others in the game. Pay very close attention to your teammates: Watch your teammates' actions and who they're generally targeting. You don't need to land a final blow or deal any damage since the trophy allows for just assists. As long as you simply place an orb of discord on an enemy, you will be awarded an assist when they eliminate the target that had the orb of discord placed on them. If you can, though, try to land a hit or two to help out. Just be careful that you're not in an area where you can easily be taken out by a sniper or catch the attention of someone else. As a Zenyatta, your mobility is very low and it makes it easy to be eliminated by most heroes in the game. As for the Saturday boost sessions, I say keep giving them a shot if you feel like doing so. It took me three or so different boost lobbies until I got my Rapid Discord trophy. Overwatch is a very booster unfriendly game as is, so it's best to keep trying until everything falls into place just right. As for Simple Geometry, like Rapid Discord, it's mostly about having the opposition at the right place at the right time. I got the trophy when Hanzo still had Scatter Arrows, so I won't be able to offer and direct advice, unfortunately. Generally, as stated with Rapid Discord, you can utilize a Zarya Ultimate ability to help with zoning in on targets to help increase your odds of getting kills. Along with that, as you've mentioned, you are at the mercy of queue times for DPS. I'm hoping that Blizzard will allow you to pop trophies in Quickplay Classic sometime in the near future. I believe a developer talked about the idea of allowing this to happen, but that's been months ago and they haven't implemented it as of yet if my knowledge is correct. Like what @Liioni stated, I think it can be a good idea to hop onto a different game and play it for a while if you really feel like you're getting too frustrated or stressed. Once you return, you may feel better and that'll improve your shots of getting at least one of the trophies to pop. Hopefully, these tips can help both of you guys out for Rapid Discord. Good luck!
  5. My bad. I edited my previous post and narrowed it down to just one.
  6. Like some others have already done, if needed, I'll post one more just in case and to help spread out the voting numbers and give recognition to others: Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & The Secret Hideout Walkthrough: The step-by-step descriptions in this guide are very well thought out and very well executed. The use of bolding and colorizing the text in this guide makes it very easy to follow along to and makes everything easy to find.
  7. Good luck to everyone this year! Here are my picks: Exceptional Use of Formatting: Far Cry 2 Trophy Guide. The author did an amazing job with formatting trophy entries along with all the tables. They made it very easy to read and follow along to. Exceptional Gameplay Guide: Crypt of the Necrodancer - Ultimate Boss Guide. I've heard that this game is very difficult and this gameplay guide does an amazing job with explanations and use of screenshots/pictures to help aid others who are struggling with the Ultimate Bosses and how to tackle them with different characters. Exceptional Walkthrough Guide: Persona 5 - Complete 100% Walkthrough. With how in-depth this game is and all the potential missables, it was really amazing to see a full 100% walkthrough on this game. The authors did an amazing job with walking you through day-by-day and telling you what exactly to do and when to do what activity. Exceptional Use of Original Content: Resident Evil 2 Trophy Guide [Author: angelbless45]. The author of this guide did very well adding in a plethora of videos for the guide and did a great job depicting on what exactly needed to be done to earn the trophies. Guide of the Year: Catherine: Full Body Trophy Guide. With a ton of missables in this game, the guide author did a great job explaining what needs to be done to ensure that you wouldn't miss these. Also, the table formatting for all the videos in this guide is very well done and easy-to-follow. Lastly, the trophy road map is very descriptive and easy-to-follow. Those are my picks. There were many many great guides to choose from and it sure wasn't easy to narrow it all down to one. Good luck to everyone for this year's awards!
  8. I'm starting to wonder the same thing. Hopefully, we can have our old guides transferred over soon. I know that it has been mentioned a good amount of times in this thread, but it has been a little while since the last time I believe. @BlindMango, any updates on this?
  9. I'm going to start up a trophy guide for Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair.
  10. I'm looking for some people as well. Feel free to add me. PSN: Z-Yux
  11. Platinum #73: Sword Art Online: Lost Song Difficulty: 3/10 Time-To-Platinum: ~40 Hours I was recommended this game from a friend of mine. It was his first platinum and he thought I'd enjoy this game. It was a pretty fun game aside from some of the camera controls with flight and combat. The platinum was a little grindy at times I think, but it wasn't anything unbearable.
  12. Currently, my 50 rarest come from 13 different games: Overwatch (5) Rocksmith 2014 (6) Rock Band 4 (6) GTA V (5) Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 (3) Super Meat Boy (2) Minecraft (2) Call of Duty: WW II (4) Sonic Adventure (3) Yakuza 0 (4) Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (4) Rock Band 3 (1) Everybody's Golf (3)
  13. Platinum #72 inFamous: First Light Difficulty: 3/10 Time-To-Platinum: ~10 Hours While the game is pretty short, the platinum can prove to be repetitive at times with some of the challenges and the constant need to play the arena challenges to rack up 10,000,000 points. I liked the added story with Fetch and how her past was touched upon. It does a great job setting up the events of Second Son.
  14. Platinum #71 Detroit: Become Human Difficulty: 2/10 Time-To-Platinum: ~30 Hours I thought this game was really well done and the story was well written as well. The characters in this game were very interesting (aside from Markus in my opinion) and their stories were really well done and written. As for the platinum, this game was pretty easy, but gets a little repetitive with the constant replay of chapters; but you will have that in games like this.
  15. How is the overall journey? Like others have stated, I think this Platinum is pretty difficult. Pretty much every trophy in this game requires the process of "everything falling into place perfectly". Sure, some trophies are easier than others, but some can be a complete nightmare. Some trophies require the opposition to cooperate and be together while some take cooperation from both the opposition and your teammates (Zenyatta's "Rapid Discord" is the first trophy that comes to mind). For me personally, I enjoy this game too much and most of the trophies weren't horribly difficult, so some popped naturally. Will it require a lot of boosting? As mentioned by many others, boosting can be a huge pain in this game. Some trophies will be recommended to boost. I was in a couple when I was going for Zenyatta's Rapid Discord back when the game was fairly new and it took multiple hours to even get things going and get people their trophy. You can be boosting and a random can easily ruin it by killing your boosting partners or messing with the objective and possibly ending the match sooner than anticipated. How are the boosting sessions, organized, good people? I was in only a couple and, from what I remember, they were pretty well organized and everyone was very cooperative. Your mileage will vary, though, it only takes one less-than-ideal person to completely ruin a boosted lobby; and for this game and its fairly bad track record of boosting, it can be pretty detrimental. Is this game still active? In my eyes, yes it is. The queue times for Quickplay are, typically, very short and you will have no problems finding games. For competitive play, your queue times will vary: I've noticed queue times that are instant, and some that would go upwards of 2-3 minutes. It mainly depends on what time of day that you are playing the game. I heard this game's community is really really toxic. Is it true? I've read some pretty harsh stories online about how toxic this game can be and watched some videos on people who throw their games. Also, I've read how some make fun of girls who play the game and expect them to play only healers and belittle them for playing anything other than a healer. On PC, it's exponentially worse due to that platform having a constant Text Chat. On console, the only forms of communication aside from voice chat is the communications wheel where you can ping things like "Group Up!", "Thanks!", etc. If you turn voice chat off, then that will be your only means of communication. You can tell when a teammate is very salty when they spam ones like "Thanks!" or "I Need Healing" right after they die. Does it suck to solo? I play the game primarily solo and I have loads of fun. Sure, some matches will be horrible and make the game frustrating, but that's pretty much most online games I think. Is this game worth it? If you play with just the intentions of going for trophies, then I would say probably not. Some trophies can throw you for a loop and can end up being a very frustrating time. If you just want to play the game to check it out and grab some trophies naturally, then I would say go for it. I can say that I'm cripply addicted to this game and still have loads of fun with it. I think it's the varying gameplay between the heroes and the overall "charm" that the game has that keeps me coming back. Hopefully, this helps out.
