  1. 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.
  2. #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! 😇
  3. #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).
  4. #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.
  5. #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.
  6. #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.
  7. I'm looking for 3 others to help assist with the 'Backseat Driver' trophy. Region - UK/Ireland PSN - McDermottx94
  8. #24 - Game of Thrones (PS4) Your standard typical TT production... utter crap. I went into this with very little to no knowledge on Game of Thrones (which as a book and TV series, is actually quite good!) so my expectations weren't high at all. Telltale managed to adapt the bleak reality of the TV series but also managed to add their own spin, by making the whole thing boring. I couldn't get invested in any of the characters, the choice(s) presented to me as the player made no sense as the majority of them made you out to be an asshole either way. I would commend Telltale on actually making this game quite medium-long compared to their other titles, but then again... it is quality over quantity and unfortunately, plenty of quantity here as opposed to quality.
  9. #23 - Sly 2 (PS Vita) A rather enjoyable sequel. I had only one issue with the game, being that the 2nd act of the game (Contessa Areas...) are downright boring to play through and made the middle section of the game slow. I was told by several fans of the series over on Reddit that Sly 2 would definitely appeal to me through enjoyment of the 1st game and they were correct. The 2nd game in the series changes up the mission format by offering new layers of missions and of course, the ability to play as the other members of the gang. The only negative aspect of this additional character ability was the constant need to go back to the SH to swap characters, so if you intend on playing through Sly 2, make sure to complete the missions as the other characters before Sly as in most cases, the characters will only have 1/2 missions per chapter whereas Sly will have the majority.
  10. #22 - Batman (Telltale) (PS4) I don't have the clips handy because they've yet to be uploaded but if you're a huge fan of Batman like myself, you're going to be let-down with this one. This series is downright insulting to the franchise from a story perspective. I understand that some variation in the story can help spruce up the franchise and create new stories to explore but the change in this story was not as appealing to me. While Bruce Wayne (or Batman) is depicted as either good or bad by the choices you make, the actual character himself in this story was lackluster. Troy Baker does a horrible job at playing the playboy billionaire and of course, as saturated as ever, Laura Bailey adds nothing to Feline Fiend. I played through this game hoping for a decent story at the very least to go along with the platinum and ended up coming out with a sour taste for Telltale as a whole and their development practices. The game runs horribly on PS4, which is the result of a poor development team not understanding how to use the hardware or rather, in this possible case, not understanding that their damn engine is on it's death bed. Come for the platinum, not the story. You will most likely be pressing random buttons towards the end to just get the game over and done with.
  11. #21 - Uncharted: Golden Abyss I don't have too much to say about Uncharted: Golden Abyss. The story is quite weak compared to even the 1st game. That said, throughout the whole experience, as a big fan of the series... it blew my mind away that there was a game of this capability available on the Vita. The Vita may be dead in terms of 1st party support, but this title here is proof that Console Quality games could be translated to the portable region without too much compromise. If you're interested in Uncharted, be sure to pick it up on the cheap and play through it at the very least. Just be warned that there is a number of issues with the game, such as the weird, forced need to use the touch-screen constantly on minor things alongside potentially frustrating boss battles on Crushing.
  12. #20 - Sly 1 (PS Vita) Very Fun Game. I enjoyed playing through this on the Vita, the only problem with the 1st game (according to most reviewers and now myself after playing it) is that the developers that ported over all 3 games from the PS2 series onto the Vita didn't change anything from the original. The cutscenes (animated ones in particular) sound and look quite rough when compared to other titles on the console and the audio quality was quite poor too. I have heard this is significantly improved in the 2nd and 3rd vita ports, though. I highly recommend you consider Sly 1 on the Vita, though if you have the PS3, skip it on the Vita and proceed the play the PS3 version of Sly 1 instead.
  13. #19 - Batman: Arkham Knight I was going to start off this guide with the 'hardest' trophy image but unfortunately, majority of my trophy pops didn't even contain the image for the trophy. The issue seems to be a bit common according to what others have posted about it, so it kinda annoyed me so slightly that one of my favorite games would happen to have issues with the trophies. Trophies in B:AK aren't too difficult, though; Riddler, as fun and entertaining as he is, his collect-a-ton of 'Riddles' can be quite tedious dependent on how fast you're able to get them done and if you're able to deal with finding all 243. Arkham City had 400 Riddles, so you'd assume it was harder than Arkham Knight but for some reason, it didn't feel as tedious back then compared to now. STILL! I still really enjoyed my time with this game. A lot of people like to poop on it because of the forced used of the car but that's fine, because it was a bit too much when the Riddles started to require using it. Stay for the Story, but be vary of the platinum; it could be too much for you if you're not patient.
  14. #18 - Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Hardest Trophy Another Uncharted Platinum in the bag. I really do enjoy the series and for what it is worth, I hope that the series has finally come to a close. I pushed myself to play through Uncharted: The Lost Legacy to officially have played through every Uncharted Game to date. Chloe is an interesting character and managed to do great at handling the protagonist role. Nadine? Just no. I didn't like her in Uncharted 4 and her appearance in this game made the story and dialogue difficult to follow. I get that Nathan and Sam (SPOILERS!) aren't so innocent as they did practically murder the majority of the shoreline army but the fact that Chloe uses that against Sam's comment about how she tried to kill them felt out of character for me. I wasn't too bothered by Sam, as his role in UC4 wasn't too particularly horrible and him as a character, to me, he was kinda cool. I just hope Naughty Dog let this series die as peacefully without getting milked. In regards to Trophies; Lost Legacy isn't too difficult but it suffers from the same fault as UC4, being that there is far too much collectibles. Naughty Dog has gone to an effort to make the treasure hunting a bit easier this time round, though. I won't spoil how but if you're planning on getting all of the treasures, ensure that you complete the token side-quest in Chapter 4. I would recommend you to play this based on the fact that above all, the game looks as gorgeous as ever and you will be treated to some eye-candy along the way. I just really hope this really is the last game in the series.
  15. #17 - Batman: Return to Arkham - Arkham City I have played through Arkham City on 360, PS3, PC and now, PS4. I must admit; my experience with this version is probably the worst. The game seems to suffer from a rather large amount of FPS drops when flying around the penguin-side of the city. Not only that but from starting the game to getting the platinum, there was at least 5+ crashes, all related to the use of the grapnel boost upgrade. The game does look quite stunning, at least, the added detail to the cowl and suit that was not present in the last-gen versions was a nice touch to express just how much shit you, the Batman, go through as you progress along the main story. If you've yet to play this game, I'd recommend it without a doubt. I'd just warn you that you will (if you're like me), suffer some annoying crashes.
