  1. Soaked In Excellence - Get 100% In Aquarium Park Color of Royalty - Collect the Purple Chaos Emerald Superstar - Collect All 180 Red Star Rings Interstellar Coaster Crusher - Get 100% In Asteroid Coaster Running The Gauntlet - Get 100% In Terminal Velocity Blue Me Away! - Collect The Blue Chaos Emerald What's A Cyan?! - Collect The Cyan Chaos Emerald And that's it. All the collectibes are now in my possession, as well as the levels are 100% complete. Before the platinum is mine, there's one last thing I have to do and that's to complete Egg Shuttle. It's basically a marathon of all the levels and it has to be done in one go. Luckily, all that matters is that I clear each level. No need to worry about the ranks or anything.
  2. For a one game, that's a lot stuff. Especially the novels, which are going to take me some time to read. On a plus side, I got the download code for Digital OST, theme and of course, avatars. They look pretty cool, but only one of them got my attention which is the one listed below. Naturally, I just had to change my avatar to that since it looks so cool.
  3. Carnival Of Completion - Get 100% In Starlight Carnival Silver Certificate - Collect The Silver Chaos Emerald Wisp It, Wisp It Good! - Get 100% In Planet Wisp Big Red Rock - Collect The Red Chaos Emerald I've been quiet for some time, both in forums and trophy hunting. Until Monday, that is. The reason is that the work shifts I had last week weren't exactly favourable, which meant a very limited amount of free time. By the time I was done with them, I was very tired from all that work and had to delay my projects till the next day... Or that was the plan, as I ended helping someone in Resogun once again, besides something else I had to do. Luckily, that didn't take long. But now, it's time to focus on this and get it done so I can start my next project. Anyway, here's another set of worlds that I've completed 100%. Only the last few ones are remaining, but thankfully, I have 1-3 levels left from each. Not much else to say.
  4. The last few games from this series that I was missing. With these now bought, I own all the games released for the PS3 (minus All 4 One and QForce, as well as Size Matters and Secret Agent Clank for the PSP). I guess you know what I'm planning? The goal is to play every one of them, but that won't happen till I get a PS5. It's basically going to be a marathon, just so I can experience this series. I might play the ones I excluded, but that isn't 100% guaranteed.
  5. Since Halloween is around the corner, I thought I'd celebrate it some way. Starting with these. The game may not be as good as the first one when it comes to the plot, but at least the music sounds awesome. It really fits in the game's dark, unsettling world.
  6. Level 423 Big Red Rock - Collect The Red Chaos Emerald
  7. Build Divide: Code #000000 Episode 1-3 It's too early to say anything about this one, as I find the rules rather confusing. Still, I enjoy the card matches, but I hope that it's just not going to be Teruto vs the opponent all the time. That would be boring. I do have to give one thing an honorable mention. The OP song is absolutely catchy. Puraore! Pride of Orange Episode 1-3 Ever since I read the news about this, I've been anticipating this a lot. Besides, it's the first of its kind, so all the more reason for me to be hyped. Not too much action so far, but hopefully there will be soon. Komi Can't Communicate Episode 1 Need I even say anything about this? Easily one of the highlights of this season. After watching the first episode, I can say that I'm hyped about it. It's also nice to see that Netflix is doing a weekly simulcast, instead of adding all the episodes in one go.
  8. Zero Gravity Thrill Ride - Complete Asteroid Coaster Smash N' Grab - Get An "S" Rank Against Frigate Skullian I Foiled A Plot And I Liked It - Complete Terminal Velocity Putting A Spin On The Negative - Get An "S" Rank Against Nega-Wisp Armor Giving Credits Where Credits Due - Play Through The Credits Level The Taste Of Perfection - Get 100% In Sweet Mountain Going Green! - Collect The Green Chaos Emerald A Day In The Sun - Collect The Yellow Chaos Emerald It was about time I made some progress. The boss of the Asteroid Coaster was easy, but getting the S rank was a major annoyance and that's because the score requirement is way too high. After failing at least 50 times, I decided to give up and try again later, since I was starting to lose focus. Some time later, I faced it again and got the S rank on my first try. What did I do different is beyond me. Once I got that out of the way, it was time to face the final boss. As expected, it's easy, but still enjoyable. Got the S rank on my 2nd attempt, even though I took damage. Oh, and I'm finally starting to get those Chaos Emeralds collected, in the midst of finishing the remaining worlds 100%. Neat. Soon I'll have Super Sonic unlocked, though I probably won't be using that form too much.
  9. 1. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception 2. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End 3. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves 4. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy 5. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Why I've listed the third game as my favorite? I've already talked about when I completed the remastered trilogy 100% in 2020, but I'll give a my story of it here as well. I bought my PS3 in the late 2011, as well the first two games sometime after that. Why I didn't buy the third one as well is beyond me. Most likely because my budget was tight back then. Anyway, until the summer 2011, I had never heard of this series before, and that's because I didn't follow the game media as much as I do today. But everything changed in that summer. For some reason (and I'm glad I did), I decided to watch E3 2011 videos from IGN. The first video from Sony was the one I watched first. After the quite spectacular intro, as well as some other stuff, they finally showcased it: Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. The gameplay footage and the trailer after that was mind blowing. From that moment, I decided to buy the series whenever I'd get PS3. When it was time to play the third game, the thing I looked forward to most was the cruiser section featured in that video. And it did not disappoint me, nor did the entire game itself. It's a downright masterpiece. And that's it. Don't get me wrong, every game listed here is great, but because of everything I saw in that E3 video, it feels natural that the third game deserves the number one spot.
  10. Figured as much. On one hand, I thought I'd mention these in case there are people who don't know about them.
  11. I have to admit, I didn't even know that they also released this on the PS3. I wonder which should I blame: the fact that the game is located on the bottom on the PS Store when searching for Ratchet & Clank games or that the game is known in Europe as Ratchet: Gladiator? You decide. Anyway, I'm aware of that the game is not as as good as the trilogy, but since I've never played it before, I might as well check it out. And yes, I'm aware of that it comes free with Full Frontal Assault (QForce in Europe), but it didn't mention anything like that in the description. Besides, I've decided to pass on that game for reasons.
  12. Harder Than You Think - Complete Any Act Without Picking Up Any Rings No Ring Left Behind - Collect All 30 Red Star Rings From Any Area Tropical Domination - Get 100% In Tropical Resort Eye Of The Hedgehog - Defeat Refreshinator With Less Than 3 Hits Be Free - Complete Planet Wisp Fast As A Shark - Defeat Admiral Jelly With Less Than 3 Hits Bucket O' Sushi - Complete Aquarium Park Ah, yes. Planet Wisp. That world brings back memories, since that one was included in Sonic Generations, a game that I really enjoyed. I also had forgotten how fun it is to blast off with Rocket Wisp. Aquarium Park on the other hand, was actually more of less annoying world to get through. I'm fine with the water levels, but some of the them went a bit too far. At least I made it through. Only the last two worlds remaining, then it's time for the showdown with Eggman. After that, finishing the other worlds 100%.
  13. Ooooh Shiny! - Get An "S" Rank On Any Act Breaking Ranks - Break Every Rank From D To S On The Results Screen Handing Out Shiners - Defeat Rotatatron With Less Than 3 Hits Why Are Records Made? To Be BROKEN! - Set A Personal Best, And Then Break All Of The Numbers On The Results Screen Sugar Rush - Complete Sweet Mountain Crunching The Captain - Defeat Captain Jelly With Less Than 3 Hits It's time to start something new, which is this game. Since I've never played it before, I'm looking forward to experience it to the fullest. So far, I've been enjoying it, but there's one thing that bothers me. If you guessed
  14. Platinum #119 Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing

    Never thought I'd play this game again, but so I did. It has minor flaws and it was mostly way too easy, but I found it enjoyable regardless. Perhaps even more than Team Sonic Racing. Don't get me wrong, TSR was good and it could've been better if it wasn't for dumb AI and such. This game also has that, but it's nowhere on the same level as it was in TSR.
     
    As for whenever I'm going to play Transformed, I might as well give the answer here. I'll pass on that. I have nothing against the difficulty and I know it's the best of the three games, but I don't think I'm capable of doing such, even with DLC installed. I might change my mind later, but I doubt it ever happens. On a side note, I did play the demo on the 3DS years ago, but never bought the game.

      Congrats! Good to know that you enjoyed the game, I liked it more than TSR and Transformed.

       

      Speaking of the latter, it's not as hard as you think with the DLC installed. Some of the tracks are easy to beat the expert ghosts on, you can ignore the ones that are really difficult.

      To be fair, I do like Sonic especially when it comes down to racing games like this one @MrGarland. :)

  15. Time Stalker - Set a Personal Best Time on any Time Trial course. Shadow Dancing - Defeat a Staff Ghost on any Time Trial course. Clock Work - Set a Personal Best Time on every Time Trial course. Ghost Master - Defeat a Staff Ghost on every Time Trial course. Golden Acts - Earn your GOLD SEGA License. Ultimate Collection - All Trophies Unlocked It was about time I got the Time Trials done. I actually did them a few days ago, but because I wanted to focus on other projects, namely, studying German (you can thank GuP for that), I had to delay this post a bit. Anyway, the Time Trials were, as you might expect, easy. However, the biggest difference when compared to the other racing games is that you only have to do one lap. You can repeat as many as you want, but I don't see a point. Unless you want to improve your time, then yeah. Something I find strange is that no matter how perfectly I did the rocket start, the Staff Ghost was always a few seconds ahead of me. Then again, it doesn't matter because they don't put any effort at all. They never drift, use shortcuts and such. You can also race against the other player's ghosts if you want, but it seems that this game has the same annoying problem as CTR NF had. Some of the times on the leaderboard are pretty much impossible to achieve. Outer Forest is a perfect example, where someone has finished a lap in just 4 seconds. Either someone used glitches or such to get a time like that or I'm missing something. Either way, I find that patchetic. Are some people so desperate that they have to use illegal methods to get their time on leaderboards? Moving on, after getting the Time Trials done, it was time to get the last trophy out of the way. Took me about 30 races or so before I had enough miles to get that golden license. Since I had already done everything, this was the only choice I had. I know I could've done the rubber band trick to rack up points, but that's no fun. I prefer to do things the old fashioned way. I also decided to listen to something else for a change, since I've already heard the game audio more than enough. Just listen to something else and you're all set. And it's done. 1,5 weeks after starting, I've finally achieved 100% in-game, something which I couldn't do back in the day. It had a few annoying moments, but overall, I enjoyed this one.
