  1. Thank you for 3,000 community rep folks!

      I just bumped you again! So there!

  2. My first tier 2 game is finished: Wipeout Omega Collection Difficulty - 2/5 Enjoyment - 5/5 This game is absolutely stunning on PS4 and it was honestly nowhere near as difficult as I remember HD being. I was aware that the AI was nerfed pretty hard in this version but I was still surprised at how easily I was getting through elite difficulty/2048. The AI can still act really aggressive in most events but you'll find that the rubber banding works a lot more favourably toward you here, as in most events when you're behind the AI will slow down to a crawl and then not even attempt to try and catch up once you're ahead. Apart from one combat event on 2048 this wasn't difficult at all. Wipeout Omega Collection - 100% Atari Flashback Classics (Vita) - 47% Futuridium EP Deluxe - 0% Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - 4% Rocksmith 2014 Edition (PS3) - 97%
  3. The leaderboards for All chars DLC don't actually exist on console.. So that error message is caused by the game trying to upload your score to a leaderboard that isn't actually there.
  4. There’s something that’s been on my mind for quite a long time now and I think i’d like to get it off of my chest.

     

    I’ve always been someone that has had a difficult time fitting in anywhere. I’ve never been a confident person and when I have days when I can speak up and be social I can get carried away easily and can come across as being quite unlikeable to many. 

     

    I’ve had issues with my mental health for most of my adult life, I don’t want to go into too much detail but I hit a low point in November, to the point where I needed urgent care and to seriously take steps to improve my wellbeing.

     

    Ever since then i’ve been very conflicted about my place in this community. I’ve always used video games as an escape, it’s never been a point of pride for me nor is it a tool to prove anything to anyone. Somewhere down the line I think i’d forgotten why I went down this rabbit hole of collecting trophies in the first place. I have an intense need to compare myself to other people and immediately assume everyone I compare myself to is better than me, which is down to my poor self esteem. Some of you will understand why this is the worst thing you can do as a trophy hunter. Don’t get me wrong, I love a challenge and I want to continue to play stuff I love, but endlessly grinding difficult trophies in an attempt to measure up to people or to gain their respect when deep down you know you’re never going to measure up to is pointless. It’s demoralising and I just don’t have the energy for it anymore.

     

    I also took on the role of moderating the PSNP Discord shortly before this, which forced me to become a lot more active on Discord as a whole. I have a very tongue-in-cheek sense of humour and I find that it’s quite difficult for me to make rational decisions due to my temper, which plays into that idea of me being unlikeable to many, my sense of humour doesn’t translate well to text and from an outside perspective every decision I make as a moderator will always look like to wrong choice to some people, which is perfectly valid because it’s also how I feel. During the time i’ve been feeling conflicted it’s mainly been a feeling of obligation that’s kept me coming back to Discord and to this place in general, but I think i’ve reached a point where I might need a break and if i’m being honest that I feel a lot of people would be better off without me?

     

    I don’t know anymore.. i’m genuinely considering just giving up. Sorry to vent, I just really needed to get this out in the open.

      Ill start off by saying you don't have to fit in anywhere, just be yourself and sooner or later you'll find at least one person that appreciates you for who you are. Too many on this site put some sort of false value into trophies as if its anything more than just a fun hobby, look into the person behind the account instead of their digital accomplishments that hold no weight whatsoever. Impressive trophies are just that, they don't say anything about the person who earned em. We're all cut different but for quite a few years now I've been in a place where literally nothing bothers me nor do I care about what anyone thinks of me, it's the best thing. Easier said than done but maybe somewhere down the line you'll get there but as of now seek the help you may need to overcome those obstacles, I don't think chasing difficult platinums in order to impress people you don't know is what you need. I hope that last part didn't come off wrong.

      Thanks for the comments guys, it's given me a lot to think about.

      You're welcome

  5. Just got the 100% on 10 second ninja, so my tier 1 list is now finished. I'm going to revisit some old games i'm really close to getting 100% on and then make a start on tier 2 Tier 1: Nuclear Throne - 100% Dead By Daylight - 100% Splasher - 100% MotoGP 09/10 - 100% 10 Second Ninja X - 100% Tier 2: Rocksmith 2014 (PS3) - 97% Atari Flashback Classics Vita - 38% Futuridium EP Deluxe - 0% Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - 4% Wipeout Omega Collection - 54%
  6. It's possible if you're good enough at the game. But doing it solo is really difficult.
  7. This is a brilliant stepping stone toward the actual run. Good luck becoming the next Necromaster!
  8. Just finished my 4th tier 1 game: MotoGP 09/10 Difficulty - 4/10 Enjoyment 6/10 This platinum was impossible to get for about 7-8 years. There is one online trophy that requires you to win a race against 19 other human players, which sounds straightforward but the catch is that you need an extremely good internet connection to host a lobby that large in this game, an internet connection that was either extremely expensive or didn't exist when this game was released. Once that trophy is done however, it's pretty easy, the AI is very easy to beat and upgrading your bike just slowly makes the game even easier over time. Getting to level 30 was a bit of a drag by the end of it and it did eventually get to a point where it started to wear out its welcome, but it was nothing too troublesome. If you ever happen to want to play this, i'd recommend trying to get the 20 player online trophy out of the way first and just avoiding this game if you can't get that. This is a very easy platinum once that awful trophy is out of the way though. Nuclear Throne - 100% Dead By Daylight - 100% Splasher - 100% MotoGP 09/10 - 100% 10 Second Ninja X - 15%
  9. I've decided that i'd like to swap Crash Bandicoot 4 out of my tier 1 list. Mainly because i'm a bit burnt out with speedruns at this point and the game itself likely won't be ultra rare anymore by the time i'm done. Nuclear Throne - 100% Dead By Daylight - 100% Splasher - 100% MotoGP 09/10 - 85% Crash Bandicoot 4 OUT - 10 Second Ninja X IN I'll also take this opportunity to share what my tier 2 list will be: Rocksmith 2014 (PS3) - 0.81% Atari Flashback Classics Vita - 2.30% Futuridium EP Deluxe - 0.08% Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - 0.79% Wipeout Omega Collection - 1.30%
  10. If it happens to be a game I really enjoy, whatever it takes.. No matter how difficult it is.
  11. Just completed my 3rd tier 1 game: Platinum #267 - Splasher - 12th Achiever Difficulty - 10/10 Enjoyment - 10/10 Coming from someone that's also done Super Meat Boy, this game is in my opinion the hardest platformer on playstation to get a platinum trophy for. I was finding it very difficult to compare the two in terms of difficulty for the longest time but this game and its last few trophies take the cake. The game itself is very fun casually. It controls pretty much flawlessly and the gameplay and story are pretty enjoyable too. I honestly had a great time with it from start to finish and I recommend you at least try the switch version if you happen to own one, it deserves more attention in my opinion. For the platinum trophy you need to get platinum medals on every single stage and within 3 full game speedruns. In order to get these you have to first speedrun each level individually and finally finish the 3 full game runs. This sounds easy on paper but the time requirements for these medals are so tight that in the majority of levels you'll be finding yourself beating the time by literally milliseconds. If this doesn't sound intimidating enough, you also have to beat the entire game from start to finish without dying and since this game is incredibly similar to meat boy, that is a pretty ridiculous task in itself. Overall, I had a great time with game, but the platinum trophy is among one of the hardest i've done. I highly recommend it but pick up the switch version if you don't want to worry about the trophies. It's relatively cheap and well worth the price. Dead By Daylight - 125/125 - 100% Nuclear Throne - 45/45 - 100% Splasher - 47/47 - 100% MotoGP 09/10 - 24/46 - 42% Crash Bandicoot 4 - 13/52 - 18%
  12. Splasher: Got the trophy for finishing a deathless run yesterday afternoon. Just need the platinum medal for a 100% run for the platinum now so i'll be spending today learning the route and hopefully i'll have it done within the next few days :)

      Happy to help 😏

  13. It's a very common problem for people working on a Coda clear unfortunately. I personally lost a number of runs because of how horrible the lag can be in zone 4 sometimes. There's an example:
  14. I don't know what to say, I didn't expect to get 3rd place overall so thank you so, so much to everyone that voted for my guide! The support really means a lot to me and I hope you find the guide helpful if you ever choose to walk down the arduous path of trying to become toast In seriousness, I want to thank everyone in the community and extend my congratulations to everyone who was nominated, particularly @Sebastian ,who put in an unreal amount of effort into making the best guide possible and i'm so happy to see his hard work pay off! I also want to thank everyone who takes the initiative to write a trophy guide. Your effort doesn't go overlooked and I hope you all take pride in knowing that someone out there appreciate's the effort you put in.
