  1. It seems like another month has gone by since I last updated this thread. Sadly, I didn't manage to complete all of my goals for this month, but I think that I actually did get a bit more done than in the last month. Maybe I shouldn't set too many different games as my goal since I know that I don't particularly like to stick to the same game for an extended period of time. I guess I can only hope to one day either learn to stick to the games I chose or to get better at judging how much I can actually get done in one month. Either way. As always here's the detailed progress over the last month: Dead By Daylight: 53/98 50% → 62/98 59% Diablo 3: 38/54 68% → 44/54 85% Fallout Shelter: 26/35 60% → 35/35 100% Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories: 3/48 4% → 23/48 36% LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens: 0% → 11/70 12% After nearly three full months I finally managed to get my next Platinum Trophy, and it even was my 40th Plat overall. And then a day after I got another Plat. So I'd like to think that August was actually a pretty good month for me. Before I finish this post with the more detailed impressions of the games that I platted this month, I want to go over my goals for September: Complete Crash Bandicoot 3 - I actually hope that three time's the charm here, because it would be pretty embarrassing to not finish it again, especially since there aren't even that many trophies left. And I would really like to finish the Trilogy before staring Spyro, especially now that its release has been moved to November, I think. Finish 4/6 playthroughs of Kingom Hearts Re: CoM - I managed to get my first Sora playthrough done this month and I actually already started on getting some of the enemy cards and miscellaneous trophies out of the way. Thankfully Riku's Story is much shorter and since I already started this one too it should be possible to finish it and another two playthroughs. Especially if I use some of the speedrunner's tactics. I just hate that you need to play through every story three times. That's just excessive. I'm pretty sure that I'm going to continue my LEGO Star Wars playthrough in the next month, but I don't really want to set this one as a goal. And now, as I already said, the games I platted in more detail: #40 Diablo III: Reaper of Souls 19.08.2018 When I purchased this game I had a feeling that I could quite possibly like it, but I didn't think I would like it as much as I did. I never played the prequels, so I didn't know any of the lore and didn't know exactly what to expect from this game, but since I always liked to play RPGs and really liked the look of it, it couldn't hurt to buy this game. The premise of the story is this typical "There is an evil force and you are the chosen one to defeat it" that everybody has played at least a thousand times, but I don't think that the story is the thing that makes this game so fun to me. I mean, it was interesting to find all these books throughout the game to get a better understanding about the characters and the world itself, but once I finished the story (twice) and started on the bounties and rifts and leveling up the other characters and getting to the point where I could arrange better builds for my characters I actually wanted to keep playing this game. So I'm definitely going to keep playing this game, since I want to get some of the in-game challenges done. I also plan on getting the DLC the next time it's on sale. I'd also like to add that I feared that the controls would be a bit rubbish, and while I imagine that it's a bit more comfortable to play this game with a mouse and keyboard, it was really easy to get behind the controls. Off the top of my head I don't really find anything absolutely negative to say about this game, except for Diablo's character design. What's up with that? In the final fight when he starts walking to you it absolutely looks like he has jiggling breast and I think that this could have been handled a bit better. #41 Fallout Shelter 20.08.2018 I started playing this game around a year and a half ago on my phone, but I didn't like it all that much and pretty quickly forgot about it, but since it was a free Platinum I just had to start again. And I have to say, it was a pretty relaxing trophy to get. Everyday after work I would just start the game up, change the rooms for a few dwellers so that they could level up their skills and then do the quests I sent them on the day before. It thankfully never required too much of my attention and I'm grateful that the Weapon and Outfit trophy didn't glitch for me in a bad way. Though I don't really see a reason to keep playing the game after getting the trophy. For me it lacks a certain incentive to keep playing.
  2. These are some other trophies that are connected to the ones you already listed and can't get before finishing the story either. All in all the trophies you can only get post-game should be these: Conqueror, Craftsman, Heartless Highbrow, Lingering Will, Mushroom Master, Professor, Seeker, To Rule Them All and Treasure Hunter. I'm not too sure about the Navigator trophy, but I think that you're able to get through the Cavern of Remembrance without finishing the story, so Navigator should be obtainable before the final fight.
  3. Sooooo, it's been a while since I updated this thread and the main reason for that is that I didn't have as much time in July to play and as a result I didn't finish any games. Therefore I didn't see any particular reason to update here. But in the last month I actually bought a few games and since the month is now over I thought an update couldn't hurt. So, first things first. Here is my detailed progress over the last month and a half: Crash Bandicoot 3: 17/25 68% → 21/27 75% Dead by Daylight: 34/92 30% → 53/98 50% Destiny: 46/61 67% → 47/61 69% Diablo 3: 4/54 4% → 38/54 68% Fallout Shelter: 0% → 26/35 60% Fifa 17: 36/45 80% → 37/45 82% Jurassic World Evolution: 0% → 9/52 13% Rayman Legends: 12/51 18% → 13/51 20% Stardew Valley: 0% → 6/41 15% I actually quite liked the idea of monthly goals,but the problem last time was that I couldn't motivate myself to play the games that I set as goals and that's not really ideal. As a result the goals for August are pretty much the same as they were for the last month, but this time I'm actually going to reach them. I hope. But in all seriousness, the goals I picked are pretty manageable. For Crash 3 I mostly only need to finish the time trials and the few bonus levels which shouldn't be too hard. For Diablo 3 I already finished both playthroughs and "only" need to level up my 4 other characters to Level 70. Since I haven't bought the DLC yet, I'll just platinum the game and will complete it at a later time. And I really do need to get started on the Kingdom Hearts Re: Com Platinum trophy, since I still have to platinum BBS and Kingdom Hearts 2 and I want to get the most boring one out of the way first. Oh, and I removed completing Kingdom Hearts 0.2 from my goals because killing Phantom Aqua without taking damage just doesn't work for me. So, that's indefinitely postponed. With all of this said, these are my goals for August: Complete Crash Bandicoot 3 Platinum Diablo 3 finish 2/6 playthroughs for Kingdom Hearts Re:CoM I already edited the first post with the games that I accumulated over the last few weeks, so I won't list them there again. Here's to hoping, that this month will work out better for me, trophy-wise at least, than the last one. 😊
  4. I decided not to update last week since I didn't have much time to play and therefore my progress was marginal. In the last two weeks I finally managed to finish Assassin's Creed Freedom Cry, while the rest of the time was used to do the weekly/daily challenges in Rayman Legends and Project CARS and to have fun with Dead by Daylight and trying to level up as many characters as possible. As I stated in my previous update, I'd like to finish Kingdom Hearts 2.8 this month, but killing Phantom Aqua without getting hit is such a pain, so much so, that I think I'm going to postpone finishing it a bit more. But we'll se how the next two weeks go. Also, I started playing Diablo 3 since it has been sitting on the shelf for quite some time now an what's the point in having all those games when you never play them? And as I said in my first post, my goal for now is to keep my completion rate at above 50% and that's still the case. (: Now the detailed rundown of my progress over the last two weeks: Assassin's Creed Freedom Cry: 10/12 57% → 12/12 100% ✔️ Dead By Daylight: 20/92 18% → 34/92 30% Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls: 0% → 4/54 4% Project CARS: 4/45 7% → 5/45 8% Rayman Legends: 11/51 17% → 12/51 18% #11 - Assassin's Creed Freedom Cry This game was definitely not one of my favorites. Even though I enjoyed the older Assassin's Creed games and I'm planning on playing Assassin's Creed Origins in the near future, the automatic jumping & the at times inaccurate controls took a lot of the fun out of it for me. Also, a few of the trophies were really boring to achieve since you essentially had to do the same thing over and over again, especially for Seeds of Independence and Thug Life. So after the main story was finished The game became really boring and I guess that's also the reason why I didn't finish it in the first place. And I know that Freedom Cry is a standalone DLC, so I shouldn't expect too much of it, but still. Lastly I want to finish this update with adding Valkyria Revolution to my Backlog.
  5. I sadly haven't been able to accomplish much this week because I had to go back to work, but I finally finished Beyond: Two Souls. Here is a bit more detailed rundown of my trophy-progression this week: Beyond: Two Souls: 27/46 63% → 46/46 100% Rayman Legends: 6/51 10% → 11/51 17% Dead By Daylight: 19/92 17% → 20/92 18% #39 Beyond: Two Souls 30.05.2018 I never actually read a synopsis of the story before playing this game, so I went into this experience completely blind and even though I think that I would have experienced the story a little bit differently if I hadn't chosen to play the game in chronological order I immensely enjoyed my first playthrough. In my opinion there were aspects of the story that were really boring and way too drawn out like the CIA Training or the Navajo chapter, but the core story really intrigued me. Especially Jodie's relationship with Aiden and the reveal who Aiden really is. At first I was a little bit confused why the Platinum rarity was so low for, in my opinion, such an easy game, but then I realized that the trophies weren't difficult. They were just freaking tedious. Having to replay the Epilogue and the last chapter so many times really became the Bane of my existence. Having to play through the chapters again to kill/save everybody was kind of okay since I needed to replay most of these chapters to get conflicting trophies like Eye for an Eye and Agent 894732. But the last chapter really was too long to have to replay at least four times to get additional endings that aren't even that different to the ones you already saw. And some of the choices you could make were a little idiotic. Like getting together with Jay at the end after knowing him for a day and him being pretty rude? No thanks. But all in all I really enjoyed the story the first time around. The additional playthroughs I had to go through were just boring and really not worth the other endings. Since a new month started a few days ago i scrolled through my Profile and thought about a few goals I could set myself to reduce my Backlog and came up with the following: finish Crash Bandicoot: Warped (8 trophies left) finish Kingdom Hearts 0.2 (2 trophies left) finish Assassin's Creed Freedom Cry (7 trophies left) finish 2/6 playthroughs for Kingdom Hearts Re: CoM Maybe I'll add a few other goals in the coming weeks if I finish these faster than I anticipated. But we'll see about that. (:
  6. Since my post at the beginning of the week I wasn't able to earn another platinum trophy, but I finished my story-walkthrough of Beyond: Two Souls today and should be able to plat it in the next few days. After perusing some of the guides on this website I decided to play some Rayman Legends and Project Cars to get started on their long-term trophies Sooo rich! and Community Ambassador to reduce the time I need to finish the game and respectively to even be able to finish the game. I played Dead by Daylight and BF1 more out of enjoyment than to actively get trophies this week, but since I still need to unlock most of the DLC Weapons in BF1 for their respective trophies it's not really lost time trophy-wise. FIFA 17 and Kind Oddball were more something for in between, but since I managed to acquire some FIFA coins I hope that I'll be able to get the trophies for the FUT Draft sessions. At the start of the month I set the following goals regarding my trophies: finish LEGO Batman 3 finish Book of Unwritten Tales 2 start & finish Beyond: Two Souls increase KH Re: CoM's completion to over 70% It seems like I was a little too optimistic with Kingdom Hearts, but I'll probably reach 3 of my 4 goals, so I'm pretty happy about that. (: Let's see how the next week goes.
  7. Since I had to work a lot this month, I didn't have as much time to continue with my games, as I'd like, but since I had a few days off now I could finally finish The Book of Unwritten Tales 2: #38 The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 21.05.2018 I'm not the biggest fan of Point-and-Click Adventures, so I used a guide to get me through most of the game, which reduced the difficulty to 0/10. It still took a lot longer than I anticipated to get through the game, and if I hadn't used the guide, I'm sure I'd have missed quite a few trophies and it would have taken at least twice as long. Nevertheless I really enjoyed the story and all the little Easter Eggs that could be found in the game. I wasn't too fond of the ending though, so I hope that they eventually release a third game (excluding The Critter Chronicles), to resolve the remaining story arcs. I'm not too sure which game I want to chose next as my digital PS3 game, so I'm going to leave it open for now and try to finish a PS4 game next. And since I found the Final Fantasy X/X-2 Steelbook Edition for 20€ last week and additionally bought Heavy Rain and Project Cars, I have a few games to add to my backlog. I really need to reduce the backlog faster. I thought about having a weekly review post rather than posting only when I finished a new game to show the progress I had in general and not only to show off one game. I think that could be a good idea, but we'll see if I'll do this or stick to the format I have now.
  8. I myself am a person who is really indecisive when it comes to choosing the next game I want to play, so I really like your idea with the random number generator. Maybe I'll steal this idea and implement it in my own Backlog Reduction. I've seen the idea that you can only buy a new game once you have earned enough points around the forum a few times now and I personally don't have the restraint for that concept, but it's really interesting nonetheless and I wish you the best of luck with reducing your backlog. (:
  9. #37 LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham 09.05.2018 There's not really a lot to say about this one. I'm a fan of the LEGO games in general, and even if I didn't quite enjoy it es much as the Jurassic World one, I still had a lot of fun playing this game. I think though, that this has more to do with the fact that I like the Jurassic Park franchise way more than the DC Superheroes and I think I'm going to have more fun playing through the Star Wars one in the following weeks. What I didn't enjoy as much were the HUB planets. They were way to repetitive, the camera controls were not really to my liking and the flying characters had a habit of falling down instead of dropping down a little when I pressed once, which made most of the races unfun. The DLCs on the other hand were short and since I knew every franchise except the Bizarro one, they were really enjoyable to me, so I'm glad I bought the Complete Collection instead of the regular game. And who knows. Maybe I'll get even more LEGO Games now and then some day I'll have played through them all. My next PS4 Digital Game is going to be Beyond: Two Souls. I'm really excited about it being a PS+ Game, since I never bought it but was always interested in it. I hope that I finish Crash Bandicoot 3 before that though.
  10. #36 Kingdom Hearts Final Mix 25.04.2018 After not having touched this game for around 2 and a half years, I finally finished it. I only had to play through the game one last time on the highest difficulty, but the last time I attempted this, I got stuck and lost my motivation. Now after starting a new save file, using some speedrunning strats and over 15 hours of playtime I'm done with this game. And even though I love the Kingdom Hearts series, I am really glad i don't have to play the first one again. The camera controls were really janky and the final Boss fights really shattered my nerves. Now on to Re: Chain of Memories. 🙂
  11. I'm also working on my proud playthrough of Kingdom Hearts right now, but I'm stuck on the 100 Heartless Fight at the End of the World. :/ I wish you good luck on your playthrough, though. Hope you get it done in the needed time frame. (:
  12. Contrary to my assumption, that Kingdom Hearts for the PS3 would be my next platinum, I actually kind of finished Battlefield 1. It's still in my backlog, because I only got the Plat and have not yet gained all 100%, but I'm getting closer. 😀😀 The reason why I didn't finish Kingdom Hearts first was that all my controllers seemed to have issues with my PS3 and as a result I couldn't escape death as often as I would have liked. But now that I actually repaired one of my PS3 controllers I should be able to finish Kingdom Hearts this month. #35 Battlefield 1 22.04.2018 I bought Battlefield 1 on a whim when the Collector's Edition was on sale on Amazon. Since I've always been somewhere between bad and average at shooters, and I only ever dabbled into Call of Duty, I didn't exactly know what to expect from BF1. But once I got into the Multiplayer aspect of the game, I was hooked. The MP trophies were actually really easy to earn and were the first trophies I got for the game. Afterwards I decided to play through the campaign but got stuck, as so many others, on the Airborne Cannons codex. A few days ago I decided it was time to reinstall BF1 to get this codex and the rest of the trophies out of the way. Now I still need to get most of the DLC-Trophies to truly complete the game, but at least I can play MP for that.
  13. So, instead of reducing my Backlog I took advantage of the PSN Sales and added the following games to my library: Lara Croft GO LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor - GOTY Edition Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition On the plus side I'm nearly done with my Proud playthrough of Kingdom Hearts 1.5 and should get the Plat within the next few days. Also I think I'm going to take a little break from Crash Bandicoot 3 to play Lara Croft GO, as it seems to be an easy and fast Plat. Edit: #34 Lara Croft GO 15.04.2018 As predicted a really easy and fast platinum trophy. I have to admit that I had a lot of fun playing the game, especially the levels in the second DLC expansion with Ghost-Lara. The only issue I had was that you couldn't use the D-Pad for movement and so sometimes Lara didn't move the way I wanted her to and she got killed. All in all I really enjoyed the style of this game. Both, the way you play and the way it looks.
  14. My plan for now is to finish the games I already began to raise my overall completion percentage. I want to achieve that by focusing on just one game per console and one of the smaller PS+ Games, but as I stated before, I get easily bored and am tempted to start a new game just because I want to play it. I think, I'm pretty happy as long as my average Rank is A and my completion is over 50%. And on that note: I just removed my first game from my Backlog. #33 Seasons After Fall 08.04.2018 I've always been intrigued by this game because of its art style and seemingly relaxing nature, but I felt it was to pricey for such a small game. Since it was on sale a few weeks back I bought it and I'm really happy about it. I immensely enjoyed it, particularly because there was no combat whatsoever and exploring was just really relaxing. It really wouldn't have been worth the full price though.
  15. Hey everyone. (: Since I accumulated quite a big backlog in between having PS Plus for some time now and being a somewhat impulsive buyer, I thought it would be best to tackle this backlog and reduce its size a bit. I'm nowhere near as good of a Trophy Hunter as some of you guys on here, but I always enjoyed to fully complete a game and get as much out of it as possible and the addition of trophies just added to this enjoyment. Sadly, I'm also one of those persons that gets bored with a game really easily, so it's a little hard for me sometimes to just push trough and keep on playing a game that I don't particularly enjoy, but I'm working on it. I primarily want this thread to help me keep track of the games I still have to complete and all the progress I already made, but I think I'd like to see my completion rate to stay above 50% and slowly climb up to 60% while keeping an A as my average game rank. As I said, I get easily bored with games, so my idea is, that for each console I have one physical and one digital game that I play simultaneously with an additional smaller PS+ Game as a filler game. Goals for September 2018: finish Crash Bandicoot: Warped (8 trophies left) - for real real this time. finish 4/6 playthroughs for Kingdom Hearts Re: CoM Games I'm Working On: - I've got to get ready for the Spyro Trilogy! - I managed to complete Sora's playthrough and get a few other miscellaneous trophies out of the way, I'm hoping to get it done soon to get to my next Kingdom Hearts game. - I'm not actively going for specific trophies, but I do play it a lot and some trophies are just bound to pop. - I started this game a few weeks ago and since LEGO games are generally pretty easy to plat I think I'm going to try to get it in the upcoming weeks. PS3 PS3 - 100% PS4 PS4 - 100% Unobtainable Obtained #1 - #25 #26 - #50 100% Updates
