  1. When you took 10 days to do Very Hard and less than a day to do Ultimate... it can't be, seriously. And I did it with 3 lives left in total. x'D I'm soooooooo happy that I'm DONE with the 1cc 2 loops. I still have to do the 1cc on Double yes, but since I can play on Normal and, most importantly, it's just the first loop, I'm not too much worried about that.

    I hope to do it in the next days and then, I can finally say a BIG goodbye to this game.

      Nice. Congrats! Your persistence to stick with this shmup and its fairly long higher difficulty runs + 1ccs is awesome

      @Fen Thanks! :)

      I'm almost there. I tried the Double and it doesn't seem too bad. With some practice I should definitely do it. At this point nothing can stop me! :D

  2. After over a week from clearing the 1cc on Hard and thinking about giving up several times, I just did VERY HARD. I can't believe it.

     

    Now for Ultimate, I can't give up now. I just CAN'T! This nightmare will end at some point.

      Congrats. Progress is being done towards that excruciatingly hard Platinum.

       

      Ultimate may just be around the corner, good luck. 👍

  3. I hope 100% games will be included in the new Ribbon system, at least in the Rarity one. There are 100% very hard which require so much effort, it's a shame to see them excluded, once again. Most people don't even consider them at the moment, if they weren't included it would be even worse. On my profile I have 121 games in total, 46 of which are 100%, and most are ultra rare.
  4. Done the 1cc on Normal on Raiden IV, with two lives in total! :D I still made some mistakes, but I did it.

    I also found a good strategy for the True Boss with Vulcan. If I can get to it with at least 4/5 bombs, or at least another life remaining, I should be safe.


    Now it's time to do Hard, it should be pretty much like Normal so I hope to get it done soon.

  5. I managed to get to work the d-pad with the DS4 on Raiden IV! Basically I was playing with the Wireless function and the diagonal imputs didn't worked, as you know I've said in the other status, but if you play just with the USB cable, it works! No idea why but it is so.

     

    Btw, with my stupid DS3, I got to the True Boss but I failed because I had just one life left. I did a lot of mistakes in the run but I guess I'm getting better at it.

     

    The all thing is really stressful, I'll take my time and hope to not give up.

      Yeah, it works better when you plug it in or so I've heard. I thought you had plugged in the controller into the console last time. 😅

       

      Best of luck with the game @Nostalgy_Flow 👍

  6. Nice, my DualShock 3 is giving me problems with the buttons pressing by themselves, on Raiden IV this stupid controller drops the bombs by itself or makes the ship doing unpredicatable movements and I can screw the run because of this. Then, how the f*ck should I be able to clear those 1cc runs? It's already so difficult, I'm just wasting my time in this way. I have another controller but to make work the Start button I've to press it very strong because is kinda broken, and since I have to constantly spam it for the pause-exploit, it's not really the best thing, you know. Plus, I tried using the DS4 and guess what? The d-pad doesn't work properly on this game! If you press up-right or down-left etc, you can't move diagonally (with the DS3 you can, of course). I could use the stick yeah, but the d-pad is way more better IMO because it allows you to make precise movements while you keep pausing.

     

    Either I buy a new DS3, or I'll have to do it with the stick. I'm already hating this game.

      The game itself is bad or the fact that you need to constantly pause? This is one of those games I want to do because of it's reputation but also don't  because of how tedious it sounds.

      @Nostalgy_Flow

      I see. Mines were only a couple of buttons, not all of them. You're welcome, hope you find a way to solve that issue.

       

      And yes, I also used to whack my controller on the sides or just shake it around until it stopped pressing the damn buttons lol xD But really, that little fix there solved the issue completely. ;)

      @NaseemJohn The game is fun until you have to do the 1cc. xD
      I think this will be one of my frustrating plat. With the pause it's "doable", compared without it at least, but very long because in any case the runs in this way can last even 2.5/3 hours I've read, so you need to find time to do them and it's not a walk in the park, I mean you need to stay really focused all the time. Without the pause trick, well, I don't even want to imagine what would be like.

  9. Finally got my 2nd QUZ no damage run, I've already got the Bird of Legend trophy and the platinum of the game, this was just for pure fun because I truly love this game!

    I messed up the counterkill with Dark Flare but whatever, it's still a better run than my previous one. Heavy Gluttons was perfect, countering G.T.V. instead would've been too risky so I sticked to the safest way.

  13. I tend not to drop the games I start until I finish them, so I don't have games with a very long completion-time. Btw my game completed in most time is Super Street Fighter IV (4 weeks, 10 hours). The reason is mostly due to the heaviness and frustration of the whole process. Between the various Ranks C in multy, all the runs in Arcade and the trials, it was really stressful. It's not so impossible to do as people may think, but it's definitely one of the most satisfying games I've ever done, for sure!

    I don't particularly like Far Cry games but I really wanted to do this one in particular because I love the 80s style/atmosphere. The game was pretty fun and the OST is just pure gold damn! I definitely recommend it, also you don't need to have played Far Cry 3, since it's a stand-alone expansion, just in case you're wondering.

    Nothing much to say about the trophies, just play the story and then do the secondary stuff. Really easy. 

    Now it's time to play Kingdom Hearts II, I planned its plat to be my 3.500 trophy for the milestone, so let's go!  :D

    Difficulty: 5/10


    Wonderful Action by Ninja Theory, although I prefer the original DMC style, I appreciated it very much. I liked a lot the combat system, really fluid and varied.
    However, in this version, I didn't particularly liked Vergil, I found him a bit uncomfortable and slow, as opposed to DMC4 or even in the 3 where he was a beast, at least for me.

    Platinum a little long due to the many runs but still very simple, even on DMD.
    The only difficulty I found it was in Vergil's DLC on Hell and Hell with the boss in mission 5, which is really a pain, btw by spamming Drive+Stomp is doable with a few attempts.

    Difficulty: 4.5/10

    One of the many clones of Bomberman, pretty short game but in the end nice, even though it's a bit frustrating sometimes hehe.

    100% really doable once you understand a bit the game, it's just about having luck with the powerups and keep trying.
    The trophies practically require three stars on each of the 30 levels, which are obtained by completing them in maximum two minutes. Although they would be 25, since for the 5 bosses it's enough to simply defeat them to get the three stars, there are no time limits. And luckily it's so because in the fourth I've far exceeded the 2 minutes lol.

    Btw it's just a matter of patience and luck (especially the final boss), nothing else. The most difficult bosses for me were the third and indeed the final boss.

    Difficulty: 3/10


    Slowly I'm catching up with the series, after playing and loved the first KH, it was the moment of CoM, which unfortunately I didn't like very much. I appreciated that they wanted to try to make a gameplay totally different from the usual based on a system with cards, but unfortunately there was nothing to do for me, I didn't enjoyed it at all.

    The platinum took me more or less like the first, about 46 hours, of which about 10 I think only to grind the maximum level of Riku... it was really annoying, also because its story lasts much less than Sora's, and basically the time you spend with him will be pretty much grinding xp.
    Luckily here on PS4 the difficulties trophies are stackable, so all the mandatory runs that were on PS3 are no longer needed.
    I did everything directly on Proud, and except for some bosses, I had no problems at all, also thanks to the really useful guide here on PSNP.

    A note for the trophy to get all Sora's cards.
    There's a very recent method (I didn't saw it even on the trophy guides), to force the drop of practically all the enemies's cards: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsHpXR8CwGU.
    I recommend you absolutely use it because otherwise you will lengthen the platinum. With the Neoshadow, however, I found that it doesn't work, so you have to get it normally, but however while grinding the last levels of Sora, you will automatically get more than one of them, at least it was so for me.

      I've noticed Chain of Memories is the one KH that people seem to not be very fond of due to that same battle system with cards that you mentioned.

    1Le7d8bb.png

    Difficulty: 5/10

     

    What to say, one of the sagas, if not the most important, for the FPS genre.

    Besides the remastered DooM 3 and its two expansions, in the BFG Edition there are also the first two DooM, which despite being more than 20 years behind, are still very enjoyable.
    The 3 compared to the first two is much slower and claustrophobic. Narrow and dark spaces with monsters popping out every two steps, sometimes they make you scare hahaha.
    The game is okay, the only thing I've really hated was L3 (held down) to sprint, since you can and must run in all directions to escape the enemies attacks, it isn't really the best thing. Sometimes I had thumb pains lol.

    Platinum is doable, but so annoying for the slowness of all.

    You need to beat the first two DooM on Ultra-Violence difficulty (and luckily not on Nightmare, because that difficulty is just crazy), but since you can save the game everytime it's not so bad. Initially it was fun, but after a while I got bored though. At least the expansion of DooM II can be done even at the lowest difficulty, but it's very short anyway.

    In DooM 3 instead well, you have to complete Nightmare! And not just in the basic game, but also in the expansions.
    Same here, having the ability to always save makes this kinda easy, but it's really annoying because you need to save every second and the loading screens aren't really that fast. In addition, health in this difficulty is fixed at 25% (if you have more it falls down to 25% and then stops), so therefore almost everything oneshot kills you. With extreme patience, however, it's definitely doable.

    Thanks to AvengedByAnarchy, Celestial_Ashes and OnlyHardPlatinum for the online trophies!

      Awesome :D Gotta love Doom. I personally love the classic Doom the most but the 3 is alright too. A bit too dark and claustrophobic at times but still a good game. Yeah, clearing the game on the hardest difficulty was kind of a pain due to how slow the game is to load your save file and the fact that you have to save like every 5 second or whenever you enter a new room since everything can pretty much one-shot kill you with health at 25.

       

      The extra content for Doom 3 was alright but, the best part of that package was playing the old games again. Lol I got more enjoyment out of those than of Doom 4.

       

      Can't wait to play the newest one on PS4 ;)

      @Honor_Hand I'm considering the idea of doing the reboot on PS4, I've seen some videos and it looks pretty cool! Those several online trophies in the DLCs worry me though. I heard that they aren't easily boostable, but if they aren't too difficult I'll think about it. Btw trophies or not, I'll play it anyway at some point!

      It definitely deserves a playthrough. I never go for DLC unless it comes with the disc I got the game in but yeah, I've heard those are pretty time-consuming. We also have Doom Eternal to look for on the horizon ;)

  24. :platinum: #62: Metal Slug Anthology

     

    1L3bdfbe.png

     

    Difficulty: 2/10 (Assuming you use the two pads trick)

     

    Awesome games, but unfortunately the input lag makes them almost unplayable. I have no idea what they did with this collection, a lot of years have passed since the last time I played a Metal Slug, but hell, I don't think there was so much lag in the original games.

     

    Super easy plat with the two controllers trick found out by a guy here on PSNP (https://forum.psnprofiles.com/topic/69144-a-simple-trick-to-get-this-plat-easily/). With this thing, you can die as much as you want, and the game won't count the continues you use, so this makes the 5cc runs really a joke. 
    Basically the only "difficult" thing is to complete a mission of each game by saving at least 10 prisoners, since if you die you lose them. With a couple of tries you can do it without any problems though.

     

    A note for Metal Slug 6: When you finish the lives, be sure to join IMMEDIATELY with the other controller, because if the countdown-screen shows up, you won't be able to join with the other controller. I have no idea why but it is so.

      Ooh, I recently got that one on PS4 to play with my girl. Need to find a second controller first though. Only have the pad that came with the console at the moment. 😅

       

      Nice to see that there was a trick to make it easier lol. And it's a shame that there is so much input lag on the game. A port issue, perhaps? Either way, congrats on the Platinum. I'm aiming to get this one soon as well ;)
