  1. Chances are, anyone that's had any sort of history playing games will have some favorites. So why not take a peek at your trophy list and name some highlights? It's also probably likely that not everything you've played is something you're particularly fond of, so what's your least favorite? Feel free to name some honorable/dishonorable mentions if you can think of any. Favorite: That'd definitely have to be LittleBigPlanet 2. It's my favorite game of all time! LBP2 & 3 more or less occupy the same spot, but LBP2 gets a slight edge for being a tad more polished and less janky. I do love both though. The Story Mode in this game was great, with solid level design, memorable world themes and entertaining dialogue. Create Mode also recieved a boost, with more powerful tools for both platforming and non-platforming levels. Some incredible levels were made by the community in LBP2. Now that the servers have been shut down, it has admittedly lost a bit of its charm, but the game still holds a special place in my heart. Honorable Mention: Sonic Generations has fantastic level design, polished presentation, faithful reimaginings of past games' stages and a LOAD of fanservice for longtime Sonic fans. It's a bit short, but the journey is a memorable and endlessly enjoyable one. It's for sure one of Sonic's best, and highly recommended to series fans or genre fans. Least Favorite: Monster Jam: Battlegrounds is a pure, unmitigated dumpster fire. I know it's a licensed game and all, but even most bad licensed games aren't this bad. At its absolute best, it's dull and uninteresting. At its worst, it is - without exaggeration - completely unplayable. The controls in certain event types are outright awful, with handling that is far too slippery and touchy. It seriously controlled so bad, that I felt dizzy and unpleasant afterwards because any slight movement on the stick caused the car to hurtle in that direction and the camera to whip around with it. I legitimately have nothing good to say about this game; it's that bad. Dishonorable Mention: Mighty No. 9. It's probably most known for being the most expensive Kickstarter game failure ever. Outside of that, there's not much I can say here; it's really just a Mega Man game but bad, with flawed level design and graphics that wouldn't impress even on the PlayStation 2. Don't bother.
  2. Not an earth-shattering milestone or anything, but today I have earned my 1,000th Bronze trophy. I'm also inching closer to my 1337 trophy - just eleven to go for that.

     

    Oh, and if you're wondering, my thousandth Bronze was Ancient Warfare 3 in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.

      Woah, you have an impressive amount of bronze trophies for having less than 1337 trophies. Thats 100 bronzes per platinum. Never seen a ratio like that, weird to look at. But hey, you're playing real games that means, no 11 gold plats.

       

      Good work!

      Congrats on the milestone!

       

      I'm not sure if you'll find this as interesting as I do, but I looked at an old version of my profile via archive.org, and my trophy counts after my 10th plat are surprisingly close to yours (also, that vintage PSNP UI):

  4. I've finally picked Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time back up, this time opting to just restart from the beginning. This thing's been on my backlog for two years now, and this time I intend to actually finish it.

     

    Since I'll be done with the Sly Cooper series after that (unless I choose to check out Bentley's Hackpack after I'm done with Thieves in Time), I'm planning on checking out one of the other series in the first-party PS2 platforming trifecta. Should I do Jak & Daxter or Ratchet & Clank next after Sly?

      Sure, if either one catches your eye.

      Since it's the worst trilogy by several country miles, go for Jak first so you can actually finish on somewhat of a high note.

      The R&C Trilogy is three awesome games, all of which hold up very well.👍

       

      The Jak Trilogy is one good - if a little dated - game, followed by an atrocious, grotesque atrocity.

      Plus a third one, I'm told.

      I don't know about it.

      I could never stomach the idea of even trying it after Jak II. 😫

       

      For the trifecta, I'd recommend going for the R&C Trilogy, and the Prince of Persia Trilogy instead.

       

       

       

  5. Uptown and Downtown (Bronze) Complete Mrs. Puff's mission in Downtown Bikini Bottom. SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated (PS4) I've been enjoying this one. This is a fairly solid entry into the 3D collectathon platforming genre thanks to its tight controls and fun objectives. Nothing mindblowing or anything, but still, a good game's a good game, even if it's a licensed game. This mission was easy to complete, but I did get a bit lost trying to find the last few steering wheels. Not because the level is confusing or anything, but because I completely glossed over the massive sign that said "SEA NEEDLE" in bold lettering. Turns out being an idiot isn't a great way to get progress.
  6. Finish up LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, since that seems to be what you're already playing at the moment.
  7. Rayman Origins doesn't have any online features, so I'm not sure why it's listed here. Are they closing Rayman Legends' servers on PS3?
  8. Is the SpongeBob game they have up on Plus this month worth playing? I've heard fairly good things about it, but I'm not sure if I'd enjoy it as much as other people do because I never played it as a kid, although I did grow up with that SpongeBob movie tie-in game and I remember it being pretty good in its own right. I might check it out if it's considered a good 3D platformer, because I'm always down for another good 3D platformer.

      I didn't play the original until I was an adult and I found it fun. I haven't played the remake yet but if it's faithful to the original, it's worth playing.

      I never played as a kid, got the 100% on Steam and I'm doing it again now. It's an enjoyable game 😄

  9. The downloadable retro stuff is pretty cool, was not expecting PlayStation Portable titles to be included, so it's a pleasant surprise. Sad that PlayStation 3 games are streaming-only, though, as unsurprising as it is given that console's stupid hardware architecture. $120 a year, though? That is a tough pill to swallow. That's double the cost of a standard PlayStation Plus subscription, and just a huge amount of money to drop on a gaming subscription every year. Definitely a bit mixed on this.
  10. There's LittleBigPlanet 1, 2 and Karting, however those games' online servers have been closed (1 & 2 went down due to security reasons, Karting closed because nobody cared about it) so community stuff in those isn't available anymore. There are still story levels, though, so the games aren't unplayable. ModNation Racers hasn't resurfaced in any way at all since the PS3 era, and while the official servers closed around the same time LittleBigPlanet Karting's did, there is an unofficial server run by fans, so you can still upload and download custom content (although it's still a WIP and does not support online races yet). Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time was the last game in the series released before it went dormant. Additionally, the PlayStation 3 is the last place aside from PlayStation Now where you can get the first three games in the series, alongside the spinoff Bentley's Hackpack. The PS3 is where you can have the entire Sly Cooper series in one place. Like you mentioned, there's also several Ratchet & Clank games exclusive to the platform. There's also Snakeball. I'm probably the only person that even likes that game, but it is a PS3 exclusive, so...
  11. I'm hoping Sonic Frontiers shows up at this event. It probably won't, but I'm still hoping it'll be there.
  12. This would be pretty exciting for me if I didn't already buy Team Sonic Racing two years ago. The boost of online players would be pretty nice, though. It's a pretty good game but the online is unfortunately rather dead.
  13. First trophies of the new year, and they're both from the same game. Rollin' Round the City (Bronze) Travel 100km in Ballform. Knockout City (PS4) This one takes forever. Thankfully, a player holding you as the ball and running counts, and so does the flying during an Ultimate Throw, but still, 100km is a lot. Glad to have this one. Fashion Statement (Bronze) Win a match with an Uncommon or rarer accessory in every slot. Knockout City (PS4) I wore a really stupid outfit to earn this trophy. Thankfully, you can't see it super clearly in the screenshot, but it genuinely was hideous. Worth noting that you don't have to get a rare voice to unlock this trophy, which is good, because voices rarely show up in the Brawl Shop and usually cost a fair amount of Holobux to purchase.
  14. Welcome to the Big Leagues (Gold) Earn 250,000 XP. Knockout City (PS4) That's three for three! I did not win a single one of the three matches that earned my these XP trophies! Seriously, though, glad to have this XP grind done. I was going for the Passing Prodigy trophy in that match, but it obviously didn't work out. Weird that there's only one gold trophy in this game, though.
