  1. Astro Bot Rescue Mission Star Lord April 4, 2021 I mean, I love any reason to dust off my seldom used PSVR and this really revitalized my love for it! It's a really fun, visual experience that was just really enjoyable to play, even during it's difficult moments especially in the challenge missions later in the game. And it was free which is even better. Honestly if you have a VR, if you haven't played it already you really should, especially if you love platformers. I absolutely cannot recommend it enough! Plus it helped me keep avoiding the AC Revelations Multiplayer or Life is Strange 2 😂

  3. inFamous inFamous Platinum Trophy March 24, 2021 And the award for most creative platinum award goes to...! But hey, it was the wild west of 2009, what could we really expect? I almost wish I would have held off until June to finish off the last trophy to make it a flush 10 years, but it feels good to knock this out of my Pile of Shame none the less. It's a classic, let's be honest with ourselves - it holds up pretty well and it's still a lot of fun, though at the tail end I was ready for it all to be over (especially since I didn't manage my ability points smart enough and had to play for longer to get all negative upgrades). Though, I'm sure my opinion would have changed if I had accidentally deleted my original save from 2011 and had to get all those blasted shards all over again. Feels good! Hopefully I can knock out AC Revelations soon, though, not holding my breath on that one. Oh what up fourth page. Extra accomplishment!
  4. And inFamous is marked off the list! I'm actually pretty pleasantly surprised how much I still liked this game even though 9 years have gone by since I started and finished it the first time around, though towards the end I was definitely happy to see it end thanks to a wonky camera and Cole being magnetically attached to every climbable surface ala OG Assassin's Creed. I'm hoping to knock Assassin's Creed Revelations out next, since I know I have some pretty lengthy slogs ahead of me coming up.

  5. Assassin's Creed Revelations (PS3) The Lost Archive February 23, 2021 Hooooo boy, been working on cleaning up the online trophies for the plat and let me tell you that shit is dead as disco. Realistically I need to just hitch onto a boosting session here on the site, or start my own, but goodness gravy it's saying something that I was able to impress Warren Vidic before I cleaned up two trophies. Goat Simulator DLC GoatMMO | GoatZ | Payday | Waste of Space March 8, 2021 | March 14, 2021 | March 16, 2021 | March 14, 2021 Don't look at me like that, it was on sale. Now to finish up a real game for a change.
  6. How dead is Assassin's Creed Revelation's online? I impressed Warren Vidic before I went up a few levels and played the last three game modes I need. But hey, that DLC is crossed off the list! Trophies Earned in Event: 2 2 8 8 Current Profile Completion Percentage: 80.36%
  7. Big Adventurer Sackboy: A Big Adventure (PS4) February 9, 2021 I wasn't really planning on playing this game, nor did I even know it came out for PS4 - I was sure it was a PS5 exclusive. But for my birthday this year two of my friends pooled together and got me the super cute Collector's Edition! How could I refuse? And goodness gravy, I just couldn't put this one down even if my life depended on it! The LittleBigPlanet Games I could put down and never go back to (evidence by the fact I did that twice) but this just got me where I lived I guess. It was such a delight to come home to after a long day of work and just platform and jam out to fun, atmospheric covers of songs and endless puzzles. Even the really hard parts of the game where so enjoyable I thought String it Together was fun more than anything else! Plus it was a nice break from my usual game of choice and my year long crusade against my PS3 backlog. Plus there's something about playing a game where you can turn off your brain, listen to a podcast, and decompress. I eagerly await DLC or if nothing else playing it again on the PS5 when I get one 👍 Also, the 2020 Wrap Up came out! Considering I guess it could be a lot worse buuuuut I did play the equivalent of 104 days of video games, so, take that with a grain of salt. But I earned 28 164 277 447 ! Pretty fucking good year of gaming I'd say! Here's to probably another full year of gaming thanks to America and the state I live in not getting their act together Covid-wisewise.
  8. A Nerd Saves the World Truberbrook January 13, 2021 I feel like there's starting to be a definite pattern in the games that I choose and the things I like about them. But how can I not love a point and click game set in a sleepy German village in the 1960's where the main character is a quantum physicist trying to unravel an Earth-shattering mystery full of hilarious, fourth-wall breaking humor with a jazzy soundtrack to underscore your puzzling adventure set with a claymation-like, Fantastic Mister Fox-esque artstyle? I mean, it ticks all the boxes! You play as not entirely hapless but just as confused as you are protagonist Hans Tannhauser on his unexpected German vacation when his notes for his quantum mechanics paper are stolen by a mysterious, glowing man, and it's up to you to find his life's work. The puzzles aren't exceptionally difficult and very satisfying (with one exception but thankfully there's lots of guides out there), and the humor is just, ah, chef's kiss I'm telling you. I found myself listening to the same conversations multiple times just so I could screen shot the quips. The developer hasn't done anything before this or since, but I'll be waiting for more from them because I'm extremely impressed!
  9. Prizes, Plunder, and Adventure! Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag (PS3) January 10, 2021 Seven years and three weeks! And my God, that online grind for 50 levels took forever and it definitely was not the most interesting thing in the world to have the same maps to run through 1000 times in Wolfpack to level up. But I did it! Boom baby. What ballache, but it's over. Until I have to do it again for the other three Assassin's Creed games I wanna finish on the PS3. God help me.
  10. After seven years and three weeks I finally platinumed Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag - the online of which was way more active than I anticipated but good lord it still took forever to grind I couldn't be more jazzed that it's over... for now. I say that like I don't still have three more PS3 Assassin's Creed games to go.

  11. Second December update, and I've knocked out more of Borderlands 2's DLC! Pretty much the only thing keeping me from 100% at this point is that the racing missions in Torgue's Campaign of Carnage suck and Moxxi's photos glitched for me I'm pretty sure. But man, it was so satisfying to solo the Dragon Keep Raid Bosses and the rest of Murderlin's Temple. So for now, we're sitting at 92% completion and honestly that's enough for me for now.

  12. The Mooseman Platinum The Mooseman December 18, 2020 I mean... Meh? Look, the game has a beautiful art style, the music is gorgeous, and I love the opportunity to learn about other cultures in an engaging way. But it's just not much of a game, to be honest. It is definitely a walking simulator cleverly disguised as a Metroidvania that really reminded me of Never Alone. Something I find myself saying a lot is 'there are worse ways to get invisible PSN points' but... I mean, there are probably better ways than this. This isn't anyone's favorite game, to be plain. I paid very little for it, but I'm glad I just went ahead and got it out of my backlog. It wasn't horrible, and it definitely helped me pass the the time, but... Meh. Just meh.
  13. Totale Brutale The Sexy Brutale December 16, 2020 This shouldn't have taken me quite so long, but I was having chronic pain issues and now I might have Covid again so weeeee here we are! I've been wanting to play this game for a really long time, since the first time I saw the cover art when a physical copy came through the used video game store I used to work at. I never bought it, but I thought about and hmm'd and hah'd every time it would come up on sale, but I finally bit the bullet and bought! And I really liked it, I really did. I know this is another one of those trophy fodder games you can follow a guide for, but there's so many small details that you miss by doing that, but to be fair there are worse way to get your invisible internet points. The music, atmosphere, and art style are so interesting and so different, that needing to restart the day 10,000,000 times was okay because there was something exciting about the gameplay and puzzle solving. And I love that as the day goes on, you recognize certain sounds and cues. It's interesting that everything that happens in this game is happening concurrently, whether you intervene or not. It shouldn't take you nearly as long as it took me, but seriously keep track of your own collectibles because the game won't do it for you and it is a pain to try and go back and figure out which ones you did or didn't collect. All 'n all, I really enjoyed it! One more indie darling for me haha! Now onto... Another indie game. I really am dedicated to getting 130 platinums this year, but every day I'm more convinced I won't make it. But hey, if I do have Covid again, that's a lot of video game time if nothing else I guess.
  14. Borderland Defender Round 2 Borderlands 2 December 4, 2020 DLC Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty December 3, 2020 SEVEN YEARS. We done did the thing, y'all, I platinumed Borderlands 2. Thankfully the PS3 version lets you sorta cheese leveling the other characters up by letting you have your same profile be playing with you in the game, so True Vault Hunter Mode came in real clutch getting my main to 50 and the other characters up to the level they needed to be for their specific trophies. But man oh man I forgot how much fun terror and mayhem could be after playing so many games in a row that are all ambient indie darlings. I'm still bound and determined to get 130 platinums this year, but I'm extremely close to also finishing the Hammerlock DLC so I think I'll finish that up before moving on. Everyone is brickin' it over the PS5 and I'm still trying to finish PS3 games 😅 good lord.
  15. Well after seven years and two weeks, I finally platinumed Borderlands 2 (knocked out a DLC too, heck yeah!). I'm also hoping to knock out two of the Assassin's Creed games on my list before starting Valhalla in January. I'm dead set on getting to 130 platinums this year; only a few more weeks left so we'll see! I think I'm also gonna track the trophies I get and my hopefully increasing completion percentage on my profile because I'm a dork and data is cool.
