  1. You probably won't care, but I still wanna do this last status update, at least for the people who know me.

     

    I made the decision to quit this profile and trophies in general.

     

    Lately I've been thinking about it more and more and I realized that for me trophies don't make sense anymore and I don't feel like continuing. I don't enjoy myself anymore and I no longer have the motivation that I had when I started this profile.

     

    Maybe I won't completely ignore trophies, but it's going to be a lot less obsessive thing. I'll do them only if I feel it and if the game pushes me to such a point, in short it'll be a much more peaceful thing. I'd like the trophies return to be a secondary thing and keep playing on this profile wouldn't help, so I'm going to create another one. Then anyway, I want this profile to remain as I left it, with all the games at 100%. I don't like the idea of continuing here because I want it to be a sort of "rebirth". I wanna completely change my approach with trophies and gaming in general.

     

    With this profile I pushed myself beyond my limits and had very great satisfaction. It was a really nice experience, I'm glad of that.

     

    Goodbye, guys. Good luck with everything! :)

      Oh man, now way. Sad to see this here but I assume you have very good reasons to quit. I too have experience trophy or even gaming burnout at times. On those cases, the best thing is doing what you are doing right now, quitting for a while and try something else in the meantime. I know you say you are planning to not come back to this profile, but who knows, right? Things happen.

       

      Anyway, your profile is very impressive. Been following your exploits for a short while and I know you're a guy who likes to tackle some near-impossible challenges, and that's pretty inspiring onto itself. Whatever your endeavors may be, I wish you great luck. If you decide to return here, we'll be more than happy to continue reading about you. :)

    I preferred New Order by far. Didn't like too much the story and in some sections of the game I got a bit bored. Still a pretty good game though.

     

    Platinum talking, as with New Order it's possible to get the Über trophy simply by completing the last chapter.
    In addition to this, there's also challenge mode, where you have to play at least on "I am death incarnate!" difficulty in order to get the gold on all the ten levels. However it's still very doable and apart from a couple of maps I did almost everything with no problem.

    I enjoyed it, really a great game. The story is not bad and is well told, and I found the gameplay very rewarding, it was fun!

     

    Simple platinum if you use the trick of doing just the last chapter on Über. The rest of the trophies are related to collectibles and perks, nothing complicated.

    Really cool game, I heard it's a clone of Trials Fusion. Never tried the Trials games, but I'll definitely do it after this one!

     

    100% a bit hard but still doable. Only hard trophy is getting 5 stars on all the levels and some of them are annoying.

      It deviates way too much from the true Trials formula. The new mechanics are no fun at all. On-foot sections with bad controls, a hook mechanic that sucks. I think that all tracks never exceed the difficulty of a medium track in Fusion or Rising. The only fun track is prolly the very last one, but even that is ruined with on-foot sections.

       

      However its a fairly short game, so its not that big of a deal if you dont enjoy it.

      Okay, I'll see what to do then. Btw if I wanna do all the games, do you think it's better to start with Blood Dragon or Fusion first? 

    4. Mori

      Mori

      Since it really doesnt matter with which game you start, yeah it would be probably best to get the bad game done first. 

       

      On the other hand, Rising has the best tutorial which will help for all other Trials games, but the harder lections unlock after progressing the main game, so you basically would need to put in a few hours.

    Game has badly aged, unfortunately. The controls, especially the aiming system, are really awful and make the game frustrating unnecessarily. Not to mention the camera. Played today, it loses a lot, surely at the time was much better, we're still talking about a game that's almost twenty years old.
    I hope Vice City will be better, gameplay talking, since it's 80s themed I'll surely like it regardless.

     

    Simple plat if you use cheats, you have to complete the game at 100% and you need to be careful to do missions in the right order, because otherwise you won't be able to complete them (only in two cases you can miss them anyway). I also reccomend not using the money cheat because it glitches the criminal rating, and don't abuse of tank cheat because it can corrupts the save (I didn't use either of them and didn't have any issues). I've also read that the Riot cheat makes the final mission impossible, or at least very difficult apparently, so don't use it as well.

  17. 100% #47: Sonic Mania Difficulty: 4/10 My first Sonic game, I liked it but not too much actually, but in the end it's still a pretty good Platform. Maybe someday I'll try the other games. 100% pretty simple. Hardest trophy is for sure getting gold in every Blue Spheres stage, btw with a guide and some attempts is doable. A note for the "Collect 'Em All" trophy. Since it can only be done in Mania mode, if like me you started the game with Sonic & Tails, before restarting from scratch with another character (with them it's hard because Tails damages enemies), try to keep him flying while you do the rest. In this way I did it quite easily.

      Gratz. I'm demoralized by the blue sphere stages. Apparently in Sonic 3 there were only 14 sphere stages. No idea why this has over 30.

      @Honor_Hand Thanks, I'll see. Mania wasn't bad, nice Platform but nothing more. I'm not used to the Sonic games, I found the controls a bit uncomfortable tbh, even after some hours. Style and music are very very cool btw, the look is very good. I'm curious to try the others, I see there's a lot of games!

       

      @mecharobot Yes indeed, they are too many! They were just boring, not fun at all.

  20. I have a problem with my Trophy Cabinet. After changing ID, the cabinet was left intact (before changing I had the same trophies you see now, and they stayed there). If I click on "Edit" though, the cabinet screen opens but it's like empty, I can't do anything except click "Close", and I can't see the trophies. If I try to add a trophy to it, it shows it on the cabinet edit screen, but outside of that, it shows the old trophies. I changed the ID a month ago, but I didn't try to edit the cabinet until now (I wanna add Raiden IV's plat to it), and also I had no problem with mergeing the two names. There's just this thing. Any idea? :/ Thanks.

    It's happened. FINALLY!

    Game was fun, it's a nice shmup! I enjoyed it until I had to do the 1ccs runs though. xD

    Even though I used pause-exploit, it's been truly hard and I'm giving it a 10 anyway. The 1ccs with the pause are a like an endurance test. You need to play 2h+ (depending on how much you pause) and you have to stay really focused untile the end. If I remember well, I took about 2 hours and 10 minutes for Normal and Hard, and 2 hours and 40 minutes for Very Hard and Ultimate.

    I was doing fine until I had to do Very Hard, then I don't know... I got lost. I thought to give up several times but in the end I didn't (thankfully). There's a big gap between Hard and Very Hard, it's just crazy.
    The hardest 1ccs were Very Hard indeed, and Normal, because you're learning to master the pause trick and the game in general. Then Hard, which is pretty much like Normal, also after the first 1cc, you got used to the thing and it becomes easier than the first time, and Ultimate. Yes, I said Ultimate. It's supposed to be the highest difficulty, but I did it in less than a day after Very Hard (with three total lifes left! xD). This shows how important mentality is. If you think you can't do it, you won't make it. After doing Very Hard I realized that it was possible, and I did Ultimate right away. IMO if you can do Normal you can do Hard, and if you can do Very Hard you can do Ultimate as well. The problem is just between Hard and Very Hard indeed, as I said because of the gap there is.

    Then Double Play (two ships at one time). Luckily you can play on Normal and you just have to do the first loop. I underestimated it though, it's been actually quite difficult. It's hard to use the pause here, but I managed to use it anyway. While pauseing, sometimes I moved just one ship at time, and others I moved the sticks togheter with the left hand, with the right thumb fixed on Options (I used DS4 for all the 1ccs because I had issues with my DS3s).

    I saved the replay for the Ultimate and Double Play runs. If I can make a video with my phone, I'll upload the runs on YT, for those interested. :) 

    Absolutely one of the games I'm most proud of. Really glad it's over.

      Excellent GG 😁😁😁!!!!! 

      I attempted this myself but just found the game to be extremely tedious, and stopped being bothered to play it.

      Also, Its nice to see someone agree with me that its a 10/10 difficulty even with pause exploits for a change.

      @KaKrackle Thanks. :)
      I gave it 10 simply because after what I've been through, it would have been ridiculous to give it a lower rating. For me, even with the pause, it's really a great plat and if you can do it, you have all my respect!

      Maybe one day if I get lots of spare time to get them 1ccs done I might get back to it. For now though Im not too fussed.

  23. 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.
