  1. To think that a thread like this would into something else.
  2. Platinum #95 Difficulty: 3/10 Playtime: 17 hours Enjoyment: 8.5/10 The first Knack was an ok game. It had certain flaws, but it was otherwise a fine one. Little did I know that there would be a sequel. Can it do a better job? As a matter of fact, it actually does. I'm honestly surprised how much the sequel has improved from the first game. This is what the first game should've been. For the most part. This time, I started on Hard, and it actually wasn't too bad. That said, I only had trouble on two sections: Chapter 8-4: The boss battle against Xander's relic monster is not too hard, until the phase where it summons a large hand. I died a few times because of this. It's kind of hard to focus on when you have two targets, but only have to attack one of them. Chapter 15-2: The section where you have to fight several Knack clones, as well as some other enemies is the worst. It gets chaotic after a while. Although I didn't die, it was close. While a sunstone crystal does spawn, it doesn't help that much. It's still chaotic. I also encountered an error in Chapter 11- 2. There's a section where you have to get past through a couple of enemies and hit a switch right after that. When I got to that, I couldn't hit it because the button prompt was greyed for some reason. The only way to fix this was to close the game and load it. After that, it worked normally. The Time Attack and Coliseum modes make their comeback in this game. Unlike in the first game, this time they are a bit more challenging, but easy enough. I needed a few tries for each Time Attack stage before I succeeded. The Coliseum on the other hand, was easy as I managed to clear them on my first attempt, but why only three stages? A new feature added in the game are the Knack medals. These are obtained by completing specific tasks, such as clearing the level within a certain time, getting a certain score and so on. By the time I completed the game, I had 20 medals or so. Getting the remaining 50 medals took me about 4 hours or so. When I eventually got them, I was exhausted as I did this in one go. I also did the easiest and the fastest ones which didn't leave me too many options. While I did get most of the speedrunner medals, there was one medal I just couldn't get, no matter how fast I was. Thankfully, you don't have to collect all the medals for platinum. I also collected all the treasure chests. Like the medals, you don't have to collect all of them, but this was something I wanted to get done. Overall, I enjoyed this game more than I thought. If they ever end up making a third game, I'm all in. Something tells me that it's not going to happen, but one can always hope. I'm also planning to collect the remaining medals as well as learn the last two skills I haven't unlocked. Learning those won't be a problem, but the medals on the other hand. Well, someday I'll get the rest. Might as well post my platinum screenshot. All I can say about that, the timing could've been better. Much better. Platinum #96 Difficulty: 2/10 Enjoyment: 9/10 I've never played the Sakura Wars games before, although I've heard the series earlier. After seeing the trophy guide, I got intrigued and decided to check it out. I have to admit, I haven't played anything like this before. I mean sure, making choices is something I've done in some other games, but in a game like this, no. That said, it was fun. I usually saved before it was time to make a choice, and I can tell that I saved regularly. You can never be too careful. I'm going to cover the other things about the game, although I will say that I made positive choices most of the time, and that also made me happy at times. First, there's the Battle Bot simulations. Redoing all the story battles is not too bad, but because you have to do each of them four times (five if you didn't get an S-rank during story), it gets old quickly. However, the final battle is the worst. Unlike the other simulations, this one has dialogue and cutscenes, and skipping all that becomes boring. Thankfully, the final battle is easy (even easier for Claris and Anastasia). Next is the minigame, which is Koi-Koi. I've only heard about this once, and that was several years ago, in the movie called Summer Wars. While the rules weren't explained in the movie, they were done so in its manga adaptation. As for the minigame itself, it took me some time to get used to, since this was the first I actually played it, even though it wasn't real life. If I had to do so in real life, I wouldn't stand a chance. Anyway, I managed to beat most of the opponents on my first attempt. For some of them, I needed a few attempts before I got lucky. I'm not saying I should win all the time on the first try, though. Losing is natural. I usually needed 3-5 games before I was victorious. I'd say Reiji and Itsuki were the ones I needed the most amount of luck. Both of them got very lucky at one of the games. After beating every opponent, a small cutscene will play, as shown below. It's good. That's all I can say about it. I wonder if there will be another one if you beat them on Challenge mode. Probably not. There are also some things I don't understand related to the mini game. Certain characters are unlocked by advancing the story and receiving a message. While I did unlock most of them, some of them I didn't. Thankfully, you can unlock them once you clear the game. Characters either nod or shake their head every now and then. Why? They also say something during the mini game, but there's no subtitles. When playing against Yaksha, every time you select a card that's highlighted, she grins angrily. It's amusing for a while, but it becomes hard to focus whenever she does that. Lastly, are the bromides. It's nice to see how characters from the past games are referred to in these. With the guide, finding and collecting them was easy. Well, with exception of bromide #53 which is the most easiest one to miss. To get it, you need to make sure you remember the order correctly, or else you won't get it. I think you're allowed to select one of the choices wrong, but no more than that. Because I messed up and accidentally saved after failing it, I had to do a playthrough on NG+ to get it. Thankfully, it doesn't take too long to reach that point. Other than that, collecting them was fun. Oh, and can't forget about the endings. There are five of them, but thankfully, you don't have to do five playthroughs to get the trophies. Save before the final battle, and that's it. Even though I had to beat the final boss that many times (plus four times for Battle Bot simulations), I'd say the ending I saved for last was worth it. The trophy screenshot explains that much. I've already shown it once in some other thread, but I'd thought I would show it once more. Again, it contains spoilers, so check it at your own risk. There's also an anime based on this which seems to take place after the game. When I started watching, I only watched the first episode as the game was in progress. After I got the platinum, I resumed the anime. Just like the game, I enjoyed it. But man, did the OP song hit hard. Basically, it's the same theme song as the game has. Not to mention, the anime uses the same music. It's understandable, but I like it. So yeah, I ended up liking this more than I thought I would. I'm planning to get every possible event added in Teletron someday, but that's for another time. I already got most of them, but the remaining endings and so on are still missing. Also, by the time I'm writing this, they've already announced the next game in the series. Hopefully, it'll get a western release too. It's time to wrap this up with my platinum screenshot.
  3. Difficulty: 1/10 Enjoyment: 8/10 Someone recommended this game to me, so I decided to check it out. Not much to say about this one, except that it was very easy. Easy, but fun. I did both PS4 and PS Vita versions. I didn't know that the trophies auto-pop on Vita version, if you have done the other one. It saved me some time. Without that, it takes about 2-3 hours. Also, I have to admit that I didn't even knew this game was first released for sixth generation consoles (Xbox, PS2 and Gamecube). I'm also going to get 100% on this game, which means to unlock every cutscene for each character, as well as the remaining weapons. Lastly, the screenshot of the last trophy I had left. And yes, Fowl Mouth is my favorite.
  4. They're just opinions, nothing else. No need to put it that way, man. And by that, I meant stfu you said.
  5. There's also a physical edition of it. I pre ordered a Collector's Edition last week.
  6. Got the Limited Edition of Death end re:Quest 2. Plenty of extras, which also includes: An exclusive trading car. As well as this cool looking messenger bag.
  7. I completed the the DLCs not too long ago, and I can tell that there are at least a few persuasion chances. Not too many, though.
  8. I think 45€ is the highest. I bought Jak and Daxter games for the PS4 with that.
  9. The trophies are mostly like in the first game, but there are a few different ones which is cool. I enjoyed the previous one more than I thought, so this should be fun. I don't mind if I have to do multiple playthroughs.
  10. The Promise - Completed Sakura's ending. I wanted to leave the best ending for last. Even though I had to beat the final boss five times for all the endings, I'd say it was worth it. Be warned that my trophy screenshot contains spoilers.
  11. I've always used Nemesis on all my playthroughs/when helping others. That's just my personal preference.
