  1. 100% - VVVVVV (NA Version)

     

    Finally done with both stacks of VVVVVV. I have now cleared No Death Mode three times, so I certainly won’t be touching this game ever again. My completion time is pretty decent this time around, although I did take a short 20 minute break halfway through. I highly doubt that someone can get a <1 hour completion time, but my one is definitely improvable if someone wanted to beat it.

     

    My No Death Run was quite bad in the end. I hadn’t touched this game in well over a year, which led to me being a little confused during the Final Level. My Super Gravitron was pretty flawless though, managed to earn those trophies in less than five minutes. But the Space Station 2 Time Trial absolutely killed my time. Wasted a solid 20 minutes on the Veni Vidi Vici trinket alone.

     

    Anyway, here is my run for anyone that’s interested.

      Well done! 💯 

  2. Got back into Tetris Effect recently and I finally managed to obtain the SS rank in Sprint Mode. I genuinely can’t remember the last time a game has enraged me as much as this one did. I should’ve had this done a lot sooner but I kept getting screwed over by RNG towards the later stages of my attempts. Still, I am quite satisfied with getting it done in less than 50 hours of playtime.

     

    The rest of the modes should be much easier to SS. I’ve done most of the others anyway, so I’ll only have a few more to get through.

     

    Planning on leaving this for plat #50 though as it’ll be a nice milestone to have.

      Well done dude! 

  3. 100% - Cloudberry Kingdom.

     

    Four months after clearing level 319 I finally decided to go back and finish this game off. I will say that this game got really boring towards the end, which is why I am now the slowest 100% achiever by quite some margin. In terms of actual playtime the 100% took me roughly 50 hours. 10 hours for the first 318 levels, 25 for 319, and 15 for 320.

     

    Out of the two main levels, I will agree with the other 100% achievers and say that 320 is the much easier level of the two. I managed to breeze through most of 320 in around five hours, but got really stuck on the final section where you need to pull off some really tight jumps. That section took me close to 10 hours alone. 
     

    Compared to other difficult platformers, I personally found VVVVVV to be slightly more difficult to 100%. Cloudberry is one of those games where you will eventually get the 100% if you have the patience to keep playing the same level over and over again. VVVVVV on the other hand is completely different. You could invest a lot of time in practicing the game and still fail a no death run at the end due to the difficulty of the Final Level.

     

    Anyway, I’m glad to finally get this done. It’s just a shame that the stats on this site are a complete clusterfuck right now, as Shenanigans should be a 0.09% by my calculations. Not a big deal for most people, but I find it quite frustrating that my efforts aren’t accurately displayed.

      You're a minority of a minority Smzthy, half of what you've done is stuff I would never even consider.

       

      You sir, get my respect.

      Awesome work! :D When I finally get round to finishing Cloudberry I'll be taking your spot as the slowest achiever though. :P

  4. Just cleared level 319 in Cloudberry Kingdom. Spent maybe 3-4 hours on it each day for the past 6 days, so somewhere in the region of 20-25 hours on this level alone. Unfortunately there's no replay feature on level 319, so I couldn't record it. I'll probably go back to it in a couple of days and record a successful run in free play. 

     

    Level 320 is supposedly a lot easier than 319, so that should be fun. The only issue is that I can't use a DualShock 4 on 320 as it is impossible to crouch jump with the D-pad. I'll have to get used to the PS3 controller again. Anyway, I'll start working on 320 in a few days time.

      @Danny_Johansen Whenever I press down to crouch jump I lose all forward momentum and end up jumping in a straight line. It seems like the issue comes from the D-pad design, as all four buttons are separated. Pressing down to crouch appears to completely override holding left or right. I'm not too sure if this same issue applies to the regular DualShock 3 though as I don't own one. I'm only able to crouch jump with a cheap PS3 controller where all four of the buttons are joint together. Of course, I could just use the analog stick, but I am 100x more comfortable with the D-pad.

    3. Danny_Johansen

      Danny_Johansen

      That is very strange and the first time I have read it. I used a DS4 for CK myself without issues. Do you have this issue on ps4 games?

    4. Smzthy

      Smzthy

      @Danny_Johansen Never had this issue before but I just found out why it wasn't working. I played the first 319 levels without using a USB cable, connecting my controller via Bluetooth each time. I just tried it with the USB cable connected and crouch jumping works perfectly. Thankfully I won't have to use that awful controller after all.

  5. Started working on Cloudberry's level 319 a couple of days ago. Made some decent progress so far, now reaching the half way stage of the level on a consistent basis. Hopefully I'll finish this soon, but it depends on how difficult the second part of the level is without the pathfinder.

  6. So I was casually playing through VVVVVV as I'm planning to do the US version in the coming weeks, and I ended up beating No Death Mode again. On one hand, I'm pretty pissed, as I'll now have to do it for a third time. But at the same time, pretty pleased, as I am pretty damn consistent at that Gravitron. Hopefully it doesn't magically get delisted by the time I actually decide to buy it.

     

  7. Finally managed to SS every level in Dustforce.

     

    Without the finesse glitch, it would probably be the hardest platformer on psn. The level of precision that is required to SS some of the later levels is pretty ridiculous. Definitely an enjoyable game though, especially when you finally get used to the controls.

     

    Just have to clean up a few miscellaneous trophies and I'll be done.

      @SunnyCrappyYT They’re incredibly overrated. Doesn’t take much skill to do 319/320 in my honest opinion. Just a lot of muscle memory. 

    3. SunnyCrappyYT

      SunnyCrappyYT

      Ah, interesting. The game seems fun, so I wanted to try it out at some point, but I gotta finish VVVVVV first. 🙃

    4. Smzthy

      Smzthy

      @SunnyCrappyYT yeah, I pretty much agree with what @Dark said. Dustforce would be much harder without the glitch. Cloudberry is 30-40 seconds worth of precision, whereas the hardest level in Dustforce (Yotta) is 3-4 minutes worth of frame perfect jumps.

      Oh nice! 

       

      And haha your about me page had me rolling xD

  9. Wow, what a cup final. Apparently Liverpool are looking for a new keeper. I reckon that random fan at the end could've done a better job tonight...

      Definitely shocking. Nothing could've been done about Bale's wonder goal, but the other two...especially that first one, huge mistakes. I wonder if Salah will be ruled out of the World Cup. 

    3. Zolkovo

      Zolkovo

      Karius lost it for Liverpool imo, but that 2nd Bale goal was sublime. Salah picking up that shoulder injury early on didn't really help either, especially considering they were the better team in the first 30 minutes or so. Real's squad depth really showed there when you look at the two benches.

      Also Bale's post-match interview lol. Basically just sent out a come-and-get-me plea.

    4. Smzthy

      Smzthy

      I don't understand why Bale hasn't been playing more frequently, when he's fit of course. Would be great to see him back in the PL. Watching that first goal back and I still can't believe it. How did Karius expect Benzema to react? 

  10. Enjoying Rayman Legends so far. Fortunately, the increased playerbase will make the diamond cups much easier to obtain. There's already 13,000 players on the leaderboards. Definitely a good time to start it up if you were interested in the platinum.

    1. Roster60

      Roster60

      Yeah. There will be a lot of people playing the game for 30mins-1h and then dropping it to never get back on it again. All plus games are the same

  11. #12 - Thumper

     

    Would've been a lot easier if I had a VR. Despite that, it isn't too bad to platinum.

  12. 100% - Schacht.

    Also happen to be the first achiever.

     

    Pretty good 3D platformer with a few tricky trophies. Beating the tutorial in under 3:15 was the most annoying one. I barely managed to pull off a 3:14 in the end. 

  13. VVVVVV No Death Mode is DONE :). After 4 deaths during the final level, it's over.

      @Spaz Thats the biggest problem with no death mode. Attempting it can get very tiresome. The levels aren't too difficult when you've practiced enough, but every failed attempt can set you back 10-15 minutes. 

      Most of my deaths occurred in the gravitron. You need to dodge a pattern for 60 seconds, with 20 of the 60 seconds having a completely random pattern. Get past that and the rest is down to nerves. 

       

      I'd recommend it though. Great game with an amazing soundtrack.

    3. Spaz

      @Smzthy- Sounds like you can't stack this game anymore.

       

      Shame since both stacks have a nice amount of ultra rare trophies.

    4. Smzthy

      Smzthy

      @Spaz Fortunately I've done the de-listed one already. Just need to buy the other version and I'll get round to it eventually.
