  1. Looking swole there @PooPooBlast! Your interview was a fun read with very detailed answers. It's great to know another fellow lifter who doesn't skip leg day Have you seen Arnie's "Pumping Iron?"
  2. Awesome man, congrats on completing the hardest part, and in very fast time too! You pretty much got the plat in the bag now. Great work!
  3. #58: Chronicle Saviours Earn all Trophies in DARIUSBURST Chronicle Saviours. Great work! The last screen-scrolling shmups I remembered playing were Dragon Spirit, 1942, Silver Surfer (still surprised that I even completed this one) and Xexyz (that is also a platformer) on the NES back in the late 80s/early 90s, as well as the Galaga arcade machine, so this wasn't my first rodeo when it comes to the shmup genre. However, I've only just recently heard of and became interested in Dariusburst, and this one originated back in 2009. Admittedly, the trophy hunter in me became enticed with the very low plat rarity, the very low amount of achievers and its known challenges, so that's what made me decide to actually go for this one. Come to find out, this game pretty is bad ass and felt very pleased with my experience with it, and part of that is probably because I haven't played that many shmups, as well as not having played one for a very long while, so it kinda gives off a "fresh" feel and something different at the moment that helped made it fun, especially when the enemies are in a form of mechanical airborne....sea creatures. While the gameplay isn't complex at all (just dodge and shoot essentially, with some countering here and there), it puts these simple mechanics through the ultimate test (and even more difficult due to a really challenging trophy list) due to the ridiculous amounts of flying projectiles you normally see in old school shmups. Since it's a shmup and they tend to have an old school vibe, don't expect much in the way of graphics and story, in which these elements are hardly the focus. As fun as this game was, it did turn out to be a bit of a drag towards the middle of the CS missions because of how lengthy it was to finish (about 220 stages including warning and alternative routes), and the recycling of many of the stages and bosses made it quite repetitive. Perhaps more variety of stages, more variety of bosses, combined with less stages in general could have helped made this experience more fun or tolerable. While shmups tend to be a more obscure genre, Dariusburst is one game that I would love to help emerge from the shadows and recommend to anyone interested in something different (although not new) other than many of the newer and common genres/types (FPS/3rd person open world/etc.) you see today. If you also revel in challenges, or someone who is more hardcore on the trophy hunting side, Dariusburst is your game. But beware of the hefty price tag for the non-JP version on the PS4 that is $59.99 USD...and it's only available in digital at that!!! Although a PS Vita physical version is available and can be found around the same price, or even cheaper if you go on eBay. The game's hardest trophy is Bird of Legend, where it requires anywhere from 12-15 min. of perfection, depending on how fast you are with the bosses. It requires you to not get hit at all, while facing all the madness you'll see in the 3 zones required (Q, U and Z), including a really crazy boss called Heavy Gluttons that will put your reflexes to the test. Fortunately, there are videos/guides available outside of this site that you can follow, or even help formulate your own strategies for certain parts. Like with any other game that contains difficult trophies, the 3 P's (practice, persistence and patience) will get you there. Also, if you are really unsure if you want to go for the platinum in this game, the good news is that you can try and go for the Bird of Legend as your first trophy, helping you decide whether you want to pursue this game more or not, that is if an alt account isn't one of your options already.
  4. Nice man, it would be awesome to see your CH garage performance. That one was a bit of a pain as well. Yeah, CH garden....everyone's eventual arch-nemesis when it comes to this game. It makes you wonder what's harder, getting the A++ or keeping your sanity intact. Just keep at it and you'll eventually get it, you got this. Thank you. I hope any part of my video could be of help, and good luck to you.
  5. That's weird. I haven't had this problem myself. Although most of my scores didn't register right away, after rebooting the game after backing up my game save following a successful A++ run I'd check my scores/times and they would show up then.
  6. No worries Not anytime soon because of my backlog, but there's a good chance I'll be coming back to this game some time later since W2 is just an awesome game altogether. Perhaps I'll make this one another milestone
  7. When I played it, the game never crashed on me, even when doing a gazillion Dragon Roars. I've read about others who played both versions had that same positive experience as well and would recommend this one over the PS3 version.
  8. I'd say that list sounds just about right, when it actually comes down to the most tedious ones. You could also throw Edge's 255 Anthropology drops in there as that took quite awhile too. The 999 specific enemy kills were a little tedious too but nothing compared to the above 10. At least Lymle's 'defeat EQ in 10 min' one required some skill and not just pure grind, although getting to the EQ could be a grind in itself, especially if you don't manage to succeed the first time around. I used to think some of the specific damage BTs were going to give me a lot trouble, but they weren't actually all that bad, if you know what you're doing. Good job on the BTs. The plat is within reach
  9. Congrats to you too
  10. If you could name your ultimate finishing move that had the words "poopoo" in it, what would it be called?
  11. Awesome, thanks for the helpful info alongside your new strat. I've been thinking about stacking this game so I'll be sure to give your new method a whirl if the time comes. Nice man, congrats!
  12. I would say Wolfenstein: Youngblood but I'll be working on that one soon. So I'll go with Nioh
  13. Digimon World: Next Order
  14. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen
  15. Wow, your new strat looks way easier to pull off than the strat from your previous video (in which I followed too and helped me achieve my Mein Leben trophy so thank you for that ). How is it that the enemies just stop spawning from behind after a certain point or did the ram shackles had something to do with that?
