  1. My June Platinum and my 9th Platinum of the year is Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. The game is very beautiful, great music, long and enriched story with many choices that have great rewards and consequences. Part of The Witcher series story though I don't know it as I have never played a Witcher game before but do have Witcher 3 on my list to play, just not sure if it will be this year for my trophy goals or not. Thronebreaker is a card game. If you like the Witcher series and want to know more of the story, this game is a great addition because even someone with no knowledge of the world saw hints in it about characters and places that the series deals with in other games. The only let down was how the card game itself played. It had a unique twist, you couldn't attack your opponents unless through special abilities. The point was just to have a bigger force than them in a best two out of three fight. It made the fight a lot longer then they had to be and prevented the game from being as fun as it looked to be in trailers and other videos online.
  2. I bought my last Reynard building, got the trophy A-ten-hut! I bought my last Gascon building immediately after as I saved up enough resources to buy them specifically together. I got the trophy Army Camp Tycoon first and then Dogs of War popped.
  3. You can Chapter select so you won't need to play the entire game over again. Not sure how it works since I never used the feature but I imagine it would the easiest and hopefully the fastest way to collect your what you need to upgrade.
  4. That is a good tip about checkpoint reloading. I got my Sling Upgrade in Chapter 10, my 100 Ammunitions in Chapter 12, and finally the Equipment Upgrade in Chapter 16. For ammo, I kept 3-4 of all simple ammo types on me in case I ran into a situation, only did the big explosion type when I needed to enter an Alchemist Cart. I believe I could have had the equipment upgraded sooner as I needed just two leathers for the longest time and I got the final one in Chapter 16 but once the game introduced I was done and just pushed through as fast I could to get the Platinum. So I didn't fully explore Chapters 14 or 15 and was no need to do any in Chapter 16 as all I needed was 1 leather. So not entirely sure when it would have been possible to pick up the Equipment trophy. Had I crafted a little less and struggled less with and/or used the checkpoint trick, definitely could have gotten the trophy sooner. I think what you upgrade first plays an important role as clearly expanding the number of resources you can carry at one time is important, probably the most important upgrades to maximize resources and not leave any behind. If I could not pick up a resource due to my limit, I would either upgrade or make some ammo so as not to waste any, even if it meant backtracking several minutes to a crafting bench. Upgrade to not need a bench is definitely a time saver and makes it easier so I push to get that one early too.
  5. Got another Platinum this month with A Plague Tale: Innocence. This game is the newest game on my list having come out earlier this month. It is beautifully designed, voice acted, and the gameplay is smooth and enjoyable. Glad I was able to get another Plat for the month. The gameplay style of Innocence is different for me and what I normally play/like but I enjoyed playing the game. I'm marching down the line and heading towards my Trophy Goals. However, with that said about the game: SPOILERS AHEAD
  6. Ok, cool. Just got to Chapter IV. Game is creepy in the dark! Lol.
  7. Everyone talks about not crafting ammo but there is a trophy for crafting 100 ammunition for Alchemy. Can you do all three in a single playthrough?
  8. I'm rocking the One-Year Anniversary God of War: Norse Life theme.
  9. Save the kingdom. It is a gold trophy, bringing my total gold trophies for leveling up to 9, which is half my total level up trophies. The other nine trophies for leveling up are seven bronzes and two silvers. No Plats though.
  10. Absolutely not true. FFVII remake is definitely worth full price. Buying that sucker four times when it gets released: once for myself and the other three for nieces and nephews.
  11. I really enjoyed Nioh. It's the only game of that type I have played. I got the Plat and own all the DLC but my PS4 with the saved file was stolen and I haven't committed to starting over again to finally play the DLC. However, with the announcement of the new PS console soon, my massive backlog of games, really hope Nioh 2 comes out on the new console instead of the PS4. I try to play more but some games take up way more time than I thought or I am not in the mood to play them and put them off. Nioh 2 would jump to the forefront of games to play but I can't keep buying games as there are always more games that I want to play. Really crappy and bit annoying a game of Nioh 2's caliber is coming so late in the life of PS4 and the talk about that next console has been discussed and on the horizon.
  12. My goal is to get a total of 50 Platinums. I started this year with 30 and currently have 37. I feel as if I am right on track to getting 20 for the year. I do have other trophy goals this year but I have to say getting 20 Platinums for the year and one Platinum in every month are my major goals. The rest sort of fall in line with these twos.

  13. Platinum #34 To crush all trophies beneath sandaled feetFor completing all trophies #2,299 7th Apr 2019 2:02:33 AM 11,108 ACHIEVERS 29,696 OWNERS 37.41% UNCOMMON Overall Enjoyment: 5/10 Plat Enjoyment:4/10 Play Enjoyment: 6/10 Difficulty: 2/10 One of April's free PS+ games. It was fun and the trophies very simple to get. The game had a lot of potential to be really good but was very buggy. Typical problems with lag, falling through the map, etc. Once you worked through the issues, the game was straight forward, typical survival game. If played solo, the game offered a lot of challenges and has a decent difficulty level. Playing with friends severely lowers difficulty and use of Admin Controls brings both the game's difficulty and trophy hunting to practically nothing. Platinum #35 Platinum PeasantGet all the trophies. #2,318 10th Apr 2019 12:24:21 AM 1,424 ACHIEVERS 1,560 OWNERS 91.28% COMMON Overall Enjoyment: 5/10 Plat Enjoyment:3/10 Play Enjoyment: 6/10 Difficulty: 6/10 A very unique 2-D platform jumping game with your character constantly moving unless you hold the back button. The game has a decent challenge level that its high Platinum earned percentage would not suggest. The Platinum is earned by the time you reach Level 47 and most probably quit playing as soon as they earn it but the game still has quite bit more to offer afterward and the difficulty keeps ramping up. Platinum #36 PlatinumUnlock every Trophy #2,338 21st Apr 2019 11:53:01 PM 232 ACHIEVERS 265 OWNERS 87.55% COMMON Overall Enjoyment: 5/10 Plat Enjoyment: 6/10 Play Enjoyment: 5/10 Difficulty: 3/10 A simple puzzle-solving game. Decent story, enjoyable Platinum to go after and earn, likable graphics. Quick, simple, and relatively easy. Not much to say. Platinum #37 The CompletionistUnlock all trophies #2,370 6th May 2019 2:10:13 AM 143 ACHIEVERS 905 OWNERS 15.80% RARE Overall Enjoyment: 8/10 Plat Enjoyment: 8/10 Play Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 5/10 A very fun RPG. It has a unique twist having to build an academy to train, upgrade, promote, and graduate your Adventures. As you constantly rotate out your team, there is a degree of difficulty that you never quite get over as you are always in need to bring in fresh Level 1s into your main party to satisfy the game's demands as well as the fact that adventurers enrolled later in the game have a higher max level. A pleasant surprise and highly recommend to those who like RPGs.
  14. Visually looks great. Not the way I enjoy playing Final Fantasy games but at least the story appears to be the same. The game's combat will definitely play different and that will many decisions, even a simple one as to who your party of three will be as I can see some characters being more difficult than others or not being fun at all. The story appears to be intact and that is the important part, the same perfect story with better graphics. The rest will sort itself out. Someone mentioned this might fix FFVII problems which it does fix the one problem FFVII has, the game had to end.
  15. September 2012 with 160 trophies.
