Grand Kingdom (Vita)
So it finally happened. I picked this game up several years ago because I liked the premise. Put it down after a few hours to concentrate on something else.
Came back to it, and decided to accept the grind. MONTHS later, finally got the plat! I don’t think I’ve ever been so glad to put a game to rest. I enjoyed it, for sure...but what was an initial 8.5/10 enjoyment, became closer to 4-5/10 by the end. Downhill only because when I thought I’d get close, I’d find out yet another grind was in store just to get a specific trophy or two.
Hints for for someone who might consider the plat for this:
*power-leveling works wonders for getting you up to speed for later game (several methods out there to achieve this, mostly to do with online wars)
*pay attention to the policy points early on (this was my last grind after ALL other trophies...even the 20,000 steps)
*its mentioned in guides, but the story is entirely optional beyond the initial tutorial. Vast majority of my time was spent in online wars, and all trophies (with the exception of maybe one or two) can be had by exclusively playing online, if you wish
*there’s a google docs spreadsheet which I found very useful:
*don’t attempt plat unless you are committed to several levels of serious grind! Also, pray for RNG to be kind to you...it was to me early in the game and helped immensely
I’m now going to move on to a couple of palette-cleansing easy plats...(whew)
