  1. #40 - Assassin's Creed 2 (PS4) - Master Assassin My 1st ever Assassin's Creed Series Platinum, probably not my last either. I played through AC2 on the 360/PS3 in the past on previous accounts but never was too bothered about the hunt for plat's back then but oh boy, AC2 was quite the fun experience. The port on PS4, however... didn't shape up too well. The textures are still sub-par compared to what is available on the console today and the fact they couldn't even get the game to run at 60FPS is a bit laughable (truly demonstrates how poor/rushed this port was for the PS4). The only issue in regards to the platinum for this game is the collecting of the 100 feathers. There is (as far as I know...) no way to actually track where you've collected feathers from, so when it comes to collecting your remaining lot; be prepared to go through the complete video guide over to ensure you're keeping on track. I've heard horror stories of people missing 1 feather and having to sit through all of the guides just to find it. Overall; Excellent Game from a story perspective but compared to what other remasters have been able to achieve, Assassin's Creed 2 is definitely the poorest of the lot thus far for me.
  2. Platinum #39 - Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (PS Vita) "Mask and Stripes Forever" I have finally managed to achieve all of the Sly Game Platinum's on the Vita. It was a long trek considering the 3rd/4th game have quite a lot of replaying to do as opposed to the previous 2 in the series. Sly 4, developed this time by another developer instead of the previous 'Sucker Punch' did a great job on this game. The characters were still the same, though fleshed out a bit more. The game-play was absolutely fantastic and they obviously worked hard to maintain that same feeling. The story however is where the problems lies and for me personally, as someone that jumped into the series quite late, it must have been even more disappointing for those that waited for MANY years, in hopes of a sequel, to finally close the story. Sly 4 has easily got the WORST of the stories, with the ending (which won't be spoiled in this!) leaving me soured. The game doesn't do anything at the end to make the player feel good about how it ended, in-fact; it just leaves more questions as to why they would do that kind of ending and then drop the series. It is almost like the Half-Life of PlayStation in a sense, the story is left open and there was obviously something more to do but they're just not gonna bother pick it back up. TO PUT A LONG RANT SHORT - The game is fantastic in terms of the characters and game-play mechanics, though the collectibles got a bit annoying towards the end. (Be well prepared to face LOTS and LOTS of loading screens, regardless of your platform [PS3 or Vita], they will take a LONG TIME!) I did enjoy playing through the game, though towards the end, it reminded me of my resentment for too much collectibles.
  3. Platinum #38 - Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves "Master Thief" I never had the opportunity to play any of the Sly Series back on PS2 as my family and I grew up with the GameCube at the time. The game is an absolute gem and it pleases me to have the entirety of the series (yet to play Thieves in Time!) available on the Vita. I recommend anyone that has yet to touch upon Sly to pick it up on their PS3 or if you are like me and still care about the cute little thing, the Vita.
  4. Platinum #37 - Rayman Origins (PS Vita) A must have for either the PS3 or Vita. Rayman Origins is a fun, fast and challenging (in some areas!) platforming game. The platinum itself isn't too difficult once you get the timing down for each of the various platforming sequences though new players to the genre may find it a bit difficult. I would absolutely recommend, even more so for PS Vita users such as myself down to the shear amount of fun and content to be had on the go. It is essentially the PS3 version of the game running on Vita, with only a few slight hiccups in the framerate.
  5. Platinum #36 - Hotline Miami (PS Vita) A fantastic gem for the PlayStation Consoles. I played it previously on an old account on PS4, which was amazing but this time round, decided to play it through on the Vita and I was not dissapointed. The experience is just as great on a Vita and with the ability to carry this gem around on the go is amazing to me. I won't spoil Hotline Miami for anyone yet to play it but just be aware that you're definitely gonna die... a lot.
  6. Platinum #35 - Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition An overall easy though somewhat grindy platinum to achieve. I had plenty of help from another user, he was extremely patient and helpful in assisting me with the completion of several DLC trophies. For the sake of him not getting spammed, I will not say his name but you know who you are, so thank you for assisting me dude. The only drawback in this version of MC is the dreaded "Passing The Time" trophy, which was my last to obtain. I had to eventually leave my vita running in the background with a 30 minute time-saving option to avoid it from going to sleep within a few seconds of me placing the console down. To add to this, you also have to take into the account that the battery life is quite short on MC and that I wouldn't personally recommend leaving it on charge all day so it helped to take breaks or rather, in my case, give the poor little vita sometime off after some hour boosting. I would highly advise you to boost some of the multi-player trophies should you plan on obtaining them (managed to earn the majority of them without boosting luckily) , while multi-player is not dead at all, the game can be a bit too laggy so legit means will present quite the challenge.
  7. Platinum #34 - PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale (Vita) All-Star Legend - You've Only Done Everything An interesting take on the arena brawl style multi-player. The biggest issue with this game being that they didn't bring over the best aspect from Smash - The % system. The only way to eliminate players in this game is through the individual super moves. These are easy to gain but equally easy to dodge, so long as you're not lagging. The online component of the game is practically dead, with the last few remaining players being level 999... so yes, you can only imagine how difficult it is to obtain the trophies through legit means, at least, at this current time. I recommend using Spike for any of the online kill trophies as his super at level 3 will kill all opponents on screen. Overall, it isn't the worst smash rip-off but the system they chose for health is mind-numing.
  8. Platinum #33 - Gravity Rush (Vita) - It's all Relative
  9. Platinum #31 - Tearaway (Vita) Platinum #32 - Canis Canem Edit (PS4) I managed to clear off Tearaway from Start to Finish while away in the UK, damn it feels awesome to be earning trophies in the sky above the clouds on a plane! Bully was straight forward enough, nothing too difficult. It was made easier by the fact that Rockstar opted to not force players to gain 100% completion. I can imagine it would have been more of a grind if you had to collect EVERYTHING, so even though the world size ain't too huge compared to games in the latest gen, it still could have been a bit of a drag.
  10. #30 - Overwatch: Origins Edition FINALLY! I have gotten the game sorted out. I played this on the PC (still do, kinda...) so jumping into the game wasn't a completely new experience for me. That said, it was a new experience to play this game on a controller rather than the standard KB/M setup on PC. Overwatch transitions well in most areas to the console with some minor annoyances (mostly just controls related, but other than that... it's pretty smooth on PS4). The trophies in OW are both equally fun and frustrating, with many of them being based on situational luck rather than skill. I managed to unlock almost ALL of the base game trophy set through legit gameplay with the exception of the hardest trophy, otherwise known as Rapid Discord. This trophy requires you to make 4 kills or assists within 6 seconds using Discord Orbs (Zenyetta) which is not only difficult because of how weak Zenyetta is (HP wise) but also that it requires your team to successfully take down targets with your discord orb. This sounds easy at first but when you're playing against properly built-up compositions, you might as well forget it. 😒 I just want to use this post as an opportunity to thank the boosting group that helped me in getting Rapid Discord alongside some of the remaining DLC trophies. The host himself, 'EVM5_' was super cool and extremely helpful in organizing the session(s). Thank you so much for helping me to finally complete this game on my list, making it my 30th platinum trophy! 😇
  11. #29 - Grand Theft Auto V (PS4) Grand Theft Auto V is an enjoyable experience that gives you the player, plentiful of freedom to explore the vast open world of Los Santos. I had plenty of fun playing through the story, not so much the collectibles (swear, they are the bane of trophy hunting for me!) but as per usual, it is not the collectibles, but rather the tedious amount of them to collect. The most annoying trophy for the SP side of the game would definitely have to be 'A New Perspective', which requires you to play in the newly introduced camera option for GTA, First Person. First Person is an interesting though flawed experience for this kind of game, you're more than likely gonna have to idle the hours (15 hours in total required, must be done on either SP or MP). Online? Well... getting to level 100 is a grind if you don't have the patience to grind missions/playlists over and over again. Other than that, you can boost most of the other trophies with little ease if you find the right people. I will most likely take some-time away from heavy open world games to cool down my sanity after spending close to about 150 hours in total for this platinum (100+ hours for online, close to 50 for SP).
  12. #28 - The Wolf Among Us (PS4) One of the few enjoyable series produced by Telltale. The story/characters were all very good compared to anything they've put out lately in terms of getting other IPs under their formula. The sequel (long awaited) has been confirmed for sometime this year which is sure to please those that have been waiting FOREVER to play another story in the same world, consider myself one of those newly acquired fans that will definitely be interested in Season 2.
  13. #26/27 - MotorStorm RC (PS Vita & PS3) I had a lot of fun with this on the Vita. I didn't intend to actually platinum the PS3 version but one of the trophies, well, 2 of them rather (Wall Brawl and Ghost Busted) required either friends on the Vita version or an ALT account on the PS3 version of the game. I had to resort to logging into the PS3 version to get the ALT challenges for those 2 particular trophies. Other than that little bit of an annoyance, it was extremely fun but did eventually get a bit challenging, in some cases, more cheap. I noticed this more in the DLC tracks compared to the original. The game does require quite a bit of patience as many of the events in each of the festivals do require precise speeding/turns/drifts to acquire the 3 medals. This is my first and last ever venture into the series, probably due to the fact that the actual racing series on PS3 is extremely tough compared to what this was and even then, this game proved to be super challenging at times.
  14. #25 - Guacamelee! (PS Vita) A fun little gem of an indie title for the Vita. I really enjoyed the game overall, the metroidvania style setup worked really well for this game. It never felt boring trying to get 100% on all of the areas, probably due to the fact that the controls (at least personally) worked so well together plus the variation in areas was neat. The only thing I would say bad about the game is the cheapness of Hard Mode. Towards the latter half of the game, the arenas felt super cheap to play in on the harder difficulty and got eventually tedious.
  15. I'm looking for 3 others to help assist with the 'Backseat Driver' trophy. Region - UK/Ireland PSN - McDermottx94
