  1. Quick update: Tier 1 Thumper (3.12%) - 0% Handball 2016 (PS3) (3.49%) - 42%->100% Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition (2.07%) - 0% Littlebigplanet 3 (1.74%) - 0% Gun Club VR (2.78%) - 0% Rayman Legends (PS4) (4.19%) - 21%->95% Brawlout (0.70%) - 0% Ark: Survival Evolved (3.51%/1.10%) - 0%->100% PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate (4.95%) - 0% Lone Survivor (4.62%) - 0% Cleared Ark, primarily to make room for downloads. Also, cleared Handball 2016. Not much to speak of there. Rayman Legends is about 2-3 weeks away from the platinum. Only have a Bronze daily/weekly and about ~350 points left for the last level of Awesome-ness. Getting to this point has been pretty fun.
  2. After last season, I had the sense I wanted to retire, now I am certain. Wanted to take it easy and did so until my match up against @Psy-Tychist. It turned up my competitive nature. Can't be helped, I guess. Once I secured that win, figured I would push thru to see if I could take the season and CWC. And here we are. Pretty much done playing games in a manner to match the meta game for the league. Want to go back to just playing for a while. I may come back if there is a special event for a season or if you guys need a mercenary to crush some souls for a fixture or two. Thank you to the league runners current and prior, it has been a fun ride. Couple of notes here: I am happy the fixture record that stood prior to this season has been replaced, even if it was beaten again very soon after. @UGotHitByGunner managed to get 3rd highest season score with only 7 fixtures counting. My count from Season 27 was across 9 fixtures. Good going, Gunner. Closing stats for me: 9 seasons, 7 CWCs entered, 7 CWCs won (Seasons 27, 29, 30, 32, 33, 34, 35). Average total CWC score 816.9. 77-10 fixture record. Average season fixture score: 1529.4. 99 plats across all fixtures. Wish I kept track of the 10 opponents that bested me (hit list?). Pretty sure @Jello or @microsamm took the most fixtures off me. Time to let a fresh champion reign. Good luck and have fun!
  3. With the PS Plus games for this month and the seemingly inevitable and impending changes to PSNOW, I am making a few changes. I would expect the lineup to change, so I want to knock out a couple more games. Might as well cheese Ark to clear that huge file from my HD. PixelJunk and Lone Survivor have been on my radar for a bit and seem to be shorter to clear off the list. Meanwhile, been getting my gold cups in Rayman Legends to slowly chip away at the ~1800 points needed outside of the cups earned in the game. Handball 2016 is kind of a mess. At first it feels impossibly difficult as the rival AI is brutal and lucky. Even after 20 wins or so, I feel like the other team can score on about 50% of their chances and I have little power over it. Tier 1 Thumper (3.12%) - 0% Handball 2016 (PS3) (3.49%) - 0%->42% Rez Infinite (3.26%) - 0% Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition (2.07%) - 0% Littlebigplanet 3 (1.74%) - 0% Gun Club VR (2.78%) - 0% Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (3.62%) - 19% Rayman Legends (PS4) (4.19%) - 0%->21% Brawlout (0.70%) - 0% Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime (3.50%) - 0% Adding Ark: Survival Evolved (3.51%/1.10%) - 0% PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate (4.95%) - 0% Lone Survivor (4.62%) - 0%
  4. Finally up to 26 platinums. Please upgrade/update me. If only until the Skywalker Saga comes out, haha. PS3/PS4: LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4 PS3 LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 PS3 LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues LEGO Jurassic World PS4 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes PS4 LEGO Movie: The Videogame PS3 or PS4 LEGO Movie 2: The Videogame LEGO Ninjago Movie: The Videogame LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars LEGO The Incredibles LEGO The Lord of the Rings Vita: LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 LEGO Jurassic World LEGO Legends of Chima LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril LEGO Marvel's Avengers LEGO Movie: The Videogame LEGO Ninjago: Nindroids LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens LEGO The Hobbit LEGO The Lord of the Rings
  5. LEGO: Star Wars III: The Clone Wars (#917) - PS3 "The Chosen One" Having only watched 2 out of the 9 main line movies, I had no idea what the storyline of this game would be. Having played for 31 hours, I still don't. Probably for the best they did not include dialogue from the movies, it would have made it longer and likely duller. This seems like the pinnacle of the LEGO formula before they became big open world maps. Lots of levels, some felt pretty long and involved, with 2 smaller hubs to investigate. There were RTS ground battles, space missions, and bounty hunter (needle in a haystack) missions. Biggest drawback for me, was having to switch out characters and vehicles at panels in the hub. Caused for a lot of unnecessary back and forth on certain things. During the level free play, you could toggle between a dozen or so characters that represent all of the skills needed to find and open everything in a level. Streamed in entirely via PSNOW with no issue, wrapping up the PS3 only LEGO platinums for me. The only ones I have left are all open world PS4 ones, most with DLC. LEGO platinum count is now 26 and will likely stay at that number for a few months.
  6. I think you would have to start a new PP thread to pull it off. I did this last year for Ratchet, mods never closed the old thread. Shame that so many of the PPs are essentially dead due to lack of updates. Godspeed if you take over. At the cadence AM releases titles, keeping an accurate ranking may be a pain. Might be good to consider updating rankings every 3 or 4 releases.
  7. Pistol Whip (#916) - PS4 **Milestone 25,000 Trophies** "You're Breathtaking" Saved this one for a milestone, fully expecting to love the game. Also, that is a pretty sweet platinum tile. The game is great. It mixes a shooting gallery with Beat Saber. You could just blast thru like target practice. You will finish levels that way, just not score highly and miss out on the feeling of hitting the beats. Aiming does not have to be precise, as the game auto corrects with a wide margin. Took me a little bit to realize I could turn on beat vibrations on the controllers to help out with timing even more. You can take a single hit before your armor is wasted. Armor is replenished by eliminating enemies. Each difficulty causes a larger delay in regaining armor. After a couple rounds, moving up to Normal was no issue. The additional enemies actually help with timing and keeping rhythm. Hard starts getting more punishing with faster reaction times and a lot more actual physical bullet time to avoid getting hit. I could see a path of both song and pattern familiarity coming into play, which is unavoidable in rhythm games. The music is not super varied. Mostly electronic with heavy beats to accentuate the visuals. There are in game modifications to play style to assist with practice, like removing obstacles or becoming invisible. OR you could make your time much more difficult by removing armor or auto aim altogether. The trophy list is less great. It is pretty thin. I guess this makes the list more accessible to everyone, but I can't imagine many casual fans going for High Priestess on Hard without bullets. The list took less than 5 hours of in game time to finish it out. It does not push you to achieve very much at all. Beat Saber pushes you thru the campaign and then to master several songs on Hard, with trophies for full combo, long combo and earning ranks. Here, you could do most of the game on easy with just a couple of specific challenges which need to be completed on Hard. The campaign even alerts you to not even bother until you are familiar with the game. I guess I would have liked the list to dive a little deeper into the game mechanics and mastery. This is definitely a game that will stick around on my hard drive alongside Beat Saber to fire up every now and again. Any other VR rhythm gems out there. Still have Rez Infinite, Thumper and Amplitude on my backlog.
  8. Updated. New members added.
  9. Throwing my hat into the ring a little later than last year, but with a more solid plan. Aim for the first tier was a decent mix of game genres, difficulties, and lengths. Tier 1 Thumper (3.12%) - 0% Handball 2016 (PS3) (3.49%) - 0% Rez Infinite (3.26%) - 0% Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition (2.07%) - 0% Littlebigplanet 3 (1.74%) - 0% Gun Club VR (2.78%) - 0% Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (3.62%) - 19% Rayman Legends (PS4) (4.19%) - 0% Brawlout (0.70%) - 0% Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime (3.50%) - 0%

      Indeed. Looking at Assassin's Creed II. Never played a mainline AC game, plus a sweet looking platinum trophy title and tile. :)

  11. A week later, only 2 completed on my second tier. Added my second rarest platinum so far with Until Dawn: Rush of Blood. Tier 2: Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality (4.56%) 0 -> 100% Until Dawn: Rush of Blood (1.51%) 0 -> 100% Playstation VR Worlds (0.63%) Tumble VR (4.11%) Gun Club VR (2.87%) I really doubt I will have time to knock out any more between work and NYE. I plan to carry strong into 2022. Great event!. Thanks for putting it on!
  12. With 9 days left.... finished Tier 1. Tier 1: Steep (2.67% ; 0.43% UR) - 0% -> 100% Dragon Age: Inquisition (6.53% ; 1.07% UR) - 34% -> 100% Tales of Zestiria (3.63% ; 2.31% UR) - 15% -> 100% Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (2.56% ; 0.78% UR) - 0% -> 100% Madden NFL 22 (PS5) (3.79%) - 0% -> 100% Started the event with 61 URs As of 2/14/21: 72 URs Currently: 99 URs Do I have a lightning round in me before year end? Let's find out, shall we? Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality (4.56%) Until Dawn: Rush of Blood (1.51%) Playstation VR Worlds (0.63%) Tumble VR (4.11%) Gun Club VR (3.87%) Pretty sure only VR Worlds may present a problem on that list. Might not have the stomach for parts of that game.
  13. Everyone updated.
  14. Grand total of 1. Tales of Zestiria (PS4) https://psnprofiles.com/series/72-tales/blu3st4rdust305 Please add me.
  15. Looooooong time since my last post. Nabbed a few unlisted UR plats in the meantime. Didn't keep up with the rule changes, etc. No biggie. Tier 1: Steep (2.67% ; 0.43% UR) - 0% -> 100% Dragon Age: Inquisition (6.53% ; 1.07% UR) - 34% -> 100% Tales of Zestiria (3.63% ; 2.31% UR) - 15% -> 100% Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (2.56% ; 0.78% UR) - 0% -> 100% Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime (3.44%) - 0% Started the event with 61 URs As of 2/14/21: 72 URs Currently: 98 URs I guess I will use a swap to put in Madden NFL 22 (PS5) in place of Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime.
