  1. #194 & #195- Hoggy 2 Platinum Hoggy Get all other trophies. Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 2/10 I never played the original Hoggy game but I'm glad I picked up Hoggy 2. It's such a cute little game. The little noises he makes are adorable and the puzzles are simple enough. I didn't even mind playing it twice for the platinum stacks. You can complete them in under an hour each. #196 & #197 - Mochi Mochi Boy Platinum Slime Get all other trophies. Enjoyment: 5/10 Difficulty: 3/10 Ehhhh, after playing Hoggy 2, this was a bit of a disappointment. It's basically like Snake where you have to touch all the grid squares to complete the levels. The later levels get pretty tough and then you have to reach level 3 on the dungeon mode, which is randomised. I managed to complete the game in 20 minutes (PS4) and then 13 minutes (PSV), so it wasn't too painful. #198 - Trüberbrook A Nerd Saves the World Unlock all Trophies in Trüberbrook Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 2/10 I love point-and-click adventure games and I've been keeping an eye on this one since its release. The story starts off pretty bland and I didn't feel connected to the main character AT ALL, which isn't great. It's beautifully drawn and the voice acting is decent, I just found it a tad boring. The story takes a wild turn and I kinda lost interest in the plot when I realised it wasn't going to be a ghost mystery, like they inititally hinted at. If you like point-and-clickers, definitely play it. Just don't get too excited about it, or you'll be sorely disappointed. I recommend using a guide which will tell you where to save scum. The game autosaves, so no save slots. Very annoying! Thank you to @themindisacity for the flawless guide. #199 - The Council Knight of the Golden Order Collect all the trophies Enjoyment: 9/10 Difficulty: 3/10 Okay, wow, where do I even start with this game? It was a rollercoaster. The story is fantastic and I was invested from the very start until the end credits started rolling. It plays a lot like a Telltale game where your story depends on the choices you make. However, this game also has some RPG elements where you have to use points to upgrade your skills and collect items to help you along the way. The game also offers you the choice of being an Occultist, Detective or Diplomat at the start of the game. Their traits differ, which means that some situations will be easier for one class, but not the others. I chose the Occultist class as my main, so I could easily lockpick my way through people's stuff without any hassle. The only trophy that concerned me was reaching level 15. If you don't do enough exploring, then you won't get anywhere near level 15 by the end. Because of this, I scoured every area to within an inch of its life, grabbing everything I could to gain that precious EXP. The story was pretty good and I genuinely wanted to see what would happen next. I wish I could say more, but spoilers! I highly recommend this game, even if you're not going for the platinum and just want to roll through it. Special thanks to @themindisacity once again for the fabulous guide. It really helped to keep track of where you should be level-wise at the end of episodes. My road to 200 platinums is finally over and I'm going to start playing GOD OF WAR Finally! I'll be so proud to have it as my 200th platinum. Very excited!
  2. #193 - Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online 4 Goddesses Online Master Proof you finished playing 4 Goddesses Online. Thank you for playing this far! Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 3/10 I bought this in a sale a while ago because it looked super cute and I saw that almost 50% of people had earned the platinum. This is my first ever experience with a Cyberdimension/Hyperdimension game and it was... alright. Don't judge me if you love them, but I really am not cut out for the whole hack'n'slash thing. The characters are cute, well drawn and voice acted (I chose the English voice acting). I found Neptune incredibly annoying (I know this is going to anger some people), so I swapped her out immediately for Noire and she became my main. The grind wasn't as bad as other games I've played, so I was eternally grateful for that: - You have to level all the characters between level 52-60 to unlock skills. - You have to get one of your characters to level 99, which is easily done if you equip an experience gem and buy an experience prayer in the Cathedral. - You have to complete every single quest that's thrown at you and, I'll be honest, they got so boring and repetitive towards the end. When fighting bosses, I got incredibly frustrated. If you attack them over and over again, your character may get STUCK to the boss. If this happens, you have to quickly swap her out and back in again before you die. It's a really annoying bug. It caused me a lot of grief, especially when fighting Cheetah and Minotauros because they have particular moves that can wipe you out in one hit. Apparently this is the easiest platinum you can earn from a Cyberdimension/Hyperdimension game. I don't think I'll be playing any others, to be honest. It's really not my cup of tea, but I had fun experiencing it regardless.
  3. #191 - Donut County All Done Unlock all trophies. Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 1/10 I finally managed to catch this game on sale and I'm really happy I sat down and played it. It's actually a really cute, simple little game. If you've ever played Hole.io, it's basically just like that. The characters are cute and the trophy challenges are fun and are not difficult at all. The only thing that did annoy me was the mobile phone text chats. You just have to keep mashing to get through them. The boss battle, once you know how to do it, is super simple and very satisfying when you do it without taking damage. I recommend this one if you're looking for a chill game and/or an easy platinum. #192 - Shadwen Both Sides Now Earn all the Trophies in Shadwen Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 3/10 Another sale purchase, purely because I absolutely love the Assassin's Creed franchise and this is a stealth game. Despite the janky controls and the repetitive voice acting, it's not all that bad. The game has some really fun and interesting mechanics: - When you stand still, so does time. Super useful when you're calculating your next move. - If you make a mistake, you have the ability to rewind time and try it over and over again. - In the first level, you obtain items to craft yourself a grappling hook, which you can use to drag objects and distract guards. You have to play the game twice in its entirely and the last part of the last level a further two times, so nothing too time consuming. The first run is the pacifist run, where you have to sneak around without killing anyone. The thing that most annoyed me whilst doing the no-kill run was the AI of Lily, the little girl who follows you around. You can press (or, in my case, smash) the button to get her to move along with you, but does she listen? No. The second run is extremely satisfying. You have to slaughter everyone in your path and Lily ends up hating you for being a murderer. If you like Assassin's Creed and don't mind having to contend with some dodgy controls, I recommend this. Just be prepared to roll your eyes every time a guard says, "I heard a sound..." Oh and, of course, when a guard discovers a dead body, they ask the corpse, "Are you alright?" CLEARLY NOT BECAUSE HE'S NO LONGER BREATHING AND YOU'RE NEXT!
  4. #188 - Thimbleweed Park Player of the Year Collect all trophies. Enjoyment: 9/10 Difficulty: 2/10 I LOVE point-and-click adventure games and this one has been on my radar for a while. I finally caught it on sale and I was lightning fast at purchasing it. I absolutely loved it. I actually felt immersed and invested in the characters, which is a massive plus. I particularly enjoyed Ransome the *beephole* Clown. He was definitely my favourite character. One of the trophies asks you to get his bad ending and I did actually feel really sorry for him. Initially, looking at the trophy list I saw a few that I knew were going to be grindy, particularly Book Worm, No One Is Home and Dust Hoarder. The "No One Is Home" trophy was actually a lot of fun for me! I dialled a random number that asked me to dial another if I wanted to find out the Secret of Monkey Island, and on and on it went. Being a massive Monkey Island fan, I quickly got absorbed into dialling a bunch of numbers and the trophy popped in no time. The Dust collection trophies, I won't lie, I used the glitch by finding one, saving the game, picking it up, reloading and repeat. I wanted to enjoy the game without having to worry too much about the dust, so I got that out of the way pretty fast at the start. The difficulty trophies do not stack, so you have to play the game twice. The hard and casual difficulty playthroughs felt like two totally different experiences, despite the same result at the end. HIGHLY recommended! #189 - Bird Game + Platinum Bird Get all the trophies Enjoyment: 1/10 Difficulty: 3/10 Ugh, this game. I picked it up because it was £1.99 in the sale and I wanted something easy to play. I couldn't sleep, so I was looking for a smooth and easy experience to send me off to sleep. My God... this game is a mess. It didn't soothe me. It enraged me. The controls are janky and the levels are just ridiculous. You're constantly being batted around by scenery that (for me) was hard to make out sometimes because of the art style. The boss fight on the first level was my main issue. I knew what I had to do, but the bee and the dragonfly owned me time and time again. Let's just say, I'm glad that this one wasn't stackable on PS Vita or it would've been twice the rage, twice the disappointment. #190 - Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy Ace Attorney Trilogy Get every trophy. Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 2/10 I freely admit that I have never played a Phoenix Wright game until now and, in all honesty, I wish I'd played these sooner. Going in completely blind was a fun experience, as I knew nothing about the characters, the story or the cases. Out of all three games, I would say that Justice For All was probably my favourite. I particularly enjoyed Turnabout Big Top. Franziska von Karma was my favourite attorney to battle against, probably because of the constant whipping... By the time I got around to Trials and Tribulations, I felt the game get slightly repetitive (investigation, trial, investigation, trial, done). They all had pretty much the same format, but I appreciate that the games tried to mix things up with the different game mechanics, like the Psyche Locks. All in all, it was an enjoyable experience. If you're like me and you've never played these before, I recommend you do. RANDOM RAMBLINGS I'm now officially on the road to 200 platinums! I think I'm going to make Until Dawn my 200th. I got it free with PS+ what seems like ages ago... I've been too much of a wuss to play it, because I'm actually scared. I don't do horror games at all. As per usual, going to keep plugging Heaven's Vault. If you haven't checked it out yet, it's such a good game and it deserves more recognition. If you're playing and some of the trophies are bugging you, I wrote a guide which you can find here. Be careful about potential spoilers. I recommend you play the game blind first! If you use my guide, I would really appreciate any feedback you have. ♥
  5. #182 - Modern Tales: Age of Invention Platinum Unlock every Trophy. Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 2/10 After playing Heaven's Vault, I decided to take a break from gaming to pursue other things (mostly sleeping). I had this sat on my dash waiting for me when I returned, so I'm a little late jumping into this Artifex Mundi offering. They've decided to add a new trophy Triple Luck, where you have to complete three HOPs in 10 minutes. It daunted me a little but it's so easily done that I didn't even think about it. The story is alright, the voice acting is a little iffy at times. I'm not a fan of their "updated" animations for the characters. However, the scenes are beautifully drawn, the puzzles were relatively easy and the collectables weren't a chore. Definitely not my favourite, but it's not the worst one I've played. #183 & #184 - Word Wheel by POWGI The Wheel McCoy Collect all the trophies Enjoyment: 6/10 Difficulty: 2/10 The sixth POWGI game I've played and stacked on PS4 and PS Vita. One Word will apparently always be my favourite because this didn't trump it. The platinum is pretty straight forward: find 500 words, complete all the nine-letter words, complete 100 words in one puzzle, etc. Oh and let's not forget the classic POWGI trophy for being "immature" and making naughty words, which I admit I had fun with. It's a little more long-winded than the others, but not nearly as time consuming (and soul crushing) as Word Search. The Reinventing the Wheel trophy glitched when I played it on the Vita. I just quit the game, found a new bonus word and it popped. If you like these games, I recommend it. #185 & #186 - Warlock's Tower Platinum mailman Get all the trophies Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 2/10 Oof, I am a major sucker for puzzles games and this was no exception. I actually really enjoyed this! It's super simple to start off with but, without a guide, I would ramp the difficulty up to about 6-7. It'll take a lot longer to complete without a trusty guide to hand too. Some of the puzzles are long-winded and tedious to complete towards the end, so I gave in and got some help. @IBadDriverI did a fantastic video guide that you can follow here. Completed the Chambers is currently glitched on PS4/PS Vita. Quitting the game and reloading worked for me on both versions. Love a good puzzle game that stacks and is cheap? Look no further. #187 - Queen's Quest 3: The End of Dawn Platinum Unlock every Trophy. Enjoyment: 5/10 Difficulty: 3/10 After giving Queen's Quest 2: Stories of Forgotten Past a positive review, I must say I'm so disappointed with this one. There is one particular mini game (the balloon one) that pissed me off so much that I almost broke my controller. In order to get the platinum, you can't skip any of the mini games which made it even more maddening. The controls are obviously designed for PC players and they do not translate well on console. There was another Artifex Mundi game with a similar mini game that drove me crazy and I thought I'd never have to do it again. My enjoyment of the game was tarnished after that, I'm afraid. Not only that, but you have to collect three types of collectables, rather than the usual one and they brought back the Triple Luck trophy. Not my best experience with an Artifex Mundi game, in all honesty, and it saddens me that I didn't enjoy it. If you're using a guide, it's a straight-forward platinum, as long as you master the dodgy controls on that one stupid mini game. RANDOM RAMBLINGS My last post in this thread was when I earned the platinum for Heaven's Vault. I had such an awesome time playing that game, I actually created my first ever guide. If you own the game and are struggling, or you're thinking of picking it up, feel free to take a look at my guide. Be careful about potential spoilers. I recommend you play the game blind first! If you use the guide, I would really appreciate any feedback on it. It's such a beautiful game and it deserves a lot more recognition. ♥

  8. #181 - Heaven's Vault Platinum Platinum Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 5/10 Long story short. I stuck to my word. I did it. Despite the very uninspired platinum name, Heaven's Vault is an absolute hidden gem of a game. It was released on 16 April and I bought it on release day (because PS+ users got it at a reduced price). I can't say I regret that decision in the slightest and I'll tell you why! Heaven's Vault is an exploration game. Not only that, but it has its own unique Ancient language that you can learn and translate as you explore. You play the role of Aliya who is an archaeologist and lives in the centre of the Nebula, on the moon Iox. She is tasked to find Iox University's roboticist, Janniqi Renba, who has mysteriously disappeared. Along with your new robot, Six, you go exploring different moons, uncovering secrets and finding ancient sites and relics along the way. The search for Renba just opens up a massive can of worms for Aliya and Six, as they unravel the mystery of fabled Heaven's Vault. I guarantee that this game won't be for everyone, but if you enjoy point-and-click adventures and like exploring, do yourself a favour and try this game. I managed to complete the game in two full playthroughs and a bit of clean-up at the end (I'll explain why in a sec). The trophies are generally straight-forward, except for a small handful which really got on my nerves. I'd say the hardest trophies to earn are: A Reunion, Enrollment and, the absolute worst, The Gates of Iox. Some of the requirements are so weirdly specific that it can completely screw you over if you make one wrong choice. The game has no manual save slots, which is incredibly annoying because you'll end up like me and have to do a NG+ to do it all again! I would highly recommend you make use of manual back-up saves if you're going to have a conversation with someone that could go drastically wrong. You have to recruit someone for the university for the Enrollment trophy and I managed to mess up the conversation three times before I got it. Don't let any of that put you off, though. This game is beautifully drawn, voice acted and scripted. The story is amazing and keeps you interested throughout. Despite playing the game almost three times in a week, I always found something new that I had missed before and the translations get harder if you NG+ Heaven's Vault is a wonderful game and I can't recommend this enough. HUMBLE BRAG As of posting, I'm the third person to earn the platinum and I'm the fastest achiever. Definitely bound to change, but very happy with my achievement getting this one.
  9. #177 - The Shapeshifting Detective Platinum Trophy Acquire all trophies Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 3/10 After having previously played The Bunker, Late Shift and The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker, I knew I had to give this one a go! You play the role of a... wait for it, shapeshifting detective and you have to interview people to find out who killed the gorgeous red-head, Dorota. The murderer is randomised, so you really have to pay attention to what people say because there are slight differences each time you play. For one trophy, the killer has to be a specific person. I was fortunate enough to get it on my second play-through. All-in-all, it's a great game! Less time consuming than The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker, but not as enjoyable as Late Shift. If you played and liked any of the previous games from this developer, I recommend this one for sure! I rated the difficulty a three because you may need to play the game multiple times to get the right killer to unlock the trophy. #178 - Nurse Love Addiction Passed the qualification exam Unlocked all trophies Enjoyment: 4/10 Difficulty: 1/10 I bought this VN on a whim (because it was on sale) and I went in completely blind. I started reading the story and as soon as it began to get incestuous, I skipped the text and just wanted it done. I know they're not biological sisters, but it was still creepy and... well, yeah. Not my cup of tea at all. Call me a prude! Incest aside, it's actually really cute. The character designs are lovely and the story (for the most part) is good. An acquired taste, for sure... especially if you like yuri content. #179 - Song of Memories Bright Future Collect every trophy Enjoyment: 6/10 Difficulty: 3/10 If someone had been there to warn me of how much of a chore getting this platinum would be, I'd have second thoughts paying the price I paid. You play through the story, picking dialogue options, getting different endings - all very standard for a visual novel. This one, however, requires you to go back and 100% EVERYTHING. You need to complete the charts and select every dialogue option in the game. It took me longer than it should have, because I kept taking breaks that I didn't need and I procrastinated like hell. Despite all that, I really loved the story and the characters. There's always one annoying one (and she's aptly named Fuuka). There are random battles you have the option to do with a rhythm game attached, but you can just skip them if, like me, you're crap at rhythm games! I recommend this VN for sure because the story is pretty decent, just be warned that it's a grind to get the platinum. My enjoyment rating is low, only because of the completion you need to do, otherwise it would've been considerably higher. #180 - Code: Realize ~Wintertide Miracles~ Wintertide Miracles Obtain all trophies Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 1/10 Ahhh, it's nice to be back in the Code:Realize realm with Cardia and the boys again. Have to admit, it felt a little weird playing a Christmas game in May, but I'll take it! Would've got this sooner, but I was waiting for a sale. As per the other two games (Code:Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ and Code:Realize ~Future Blessings~), it's an otome VN and the characters are fantastic! I love this series and I hope they release more in the future. Side note: I did like the addition of The White Songstress, Cantarella. She's very pretty! ADDITIONAL STUFF I reached trophy level 35, which I'm incredibly happy about! I earned my first platinum almost two years ago (28 May 2017), so I'm thrilled to have made it this far in such a short amount of time. Probably won't be posting here as much now, because I'm determined to sink my teeth into a juicy, long game. This decision is mostly because I'm still butthurt about my 175th milestone being overlooked and given to Super Weekend Mode. I bought Heaven's Vault, which looks super interesting, so I might start giving that a go. If you read this far, you're amazing and I hope you have a lovely weekend!
  10. #169 - Conan Exiles To crush all trophies beneath sandaled feet For completing all trophies Enjoyment: 0/10 Difficulty: 1/10 Wow, it's hardly any wonder why they gave this away for free with PS+ this month. I used the admin panel (gladly) because I can't even imagine trying to get the platinum without it. After waiting 3 HOURS for it to download, I was glad to finally delete this game off my dash to rot in my Library. Garbage game, really easy platinum. Moving on... #170 - Glass Masquerade Art Deco Unlock all trophies Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 2/10 Ohhh, I do love puzzle games and this one was right up my alley! It's basically jigsaw puzzles with stained glass window designs from all around the world. The pictures were lovely, the controls were smooth and the difficulty was just right. I had a lot of fun with this game and I hope to see more like it in the future. #171 & #172 - Crossovers by POWGI Crossoverachiever Collect all the trophies Enjoyment: 6/10 Difficulty: 1/10 Another decent offering from the POWGI series of games. After having recently done Word Search by POWGI (again), this one was easier in comparison. You have to solve 200 puzzles, which will take approximately 2-3 hours (I took longer on my PS4 run because I had breaks). Nice little game, but One Word by POWGI is still my favourite! #173 & #174 - METAGAL Platinum GAL Get all other trophies. Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 2/10 Ratalaika Games are literally chucking easy platinums at us at the moment, and who am I to refuse? METAGAL was a pretty easy side-scrolling/shooter game. The only part that gave me trouble was the final boss but, with practice, she's easy to take down. I halved my play time between my Vita (31 minutes) and PS4 (15 minutes) runs, so practice does indeed make perfect! Cute little game, cheap and easy for trophy hunters. #175 & #176 - Crossovers by POWGI Platinum Weekend Get all other trophies Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 2/10 Back at it again with another offering from Ratalaika Games. L1 and R1 are the only buttons you use in this little shooter game and, with practice, it's dead easy. You need to beat three stages on easy mode, collect hearts and earn a certain amount of points and that's pretty much it. Once again, I managed to cut my completion time down considerably with practice: Vita (14 minutes) and PS4 (5 minutes!) Some people have said that they found the third level troublesome. It IS more difficult, but just persevere. If I can do it, you most certainly can. Trust me! On another note, I totally forgot that the 175th platinum is a milestone and now I have Super Weekend Mode on my profile forever. Probably for the best. It'll remind me not to be a trophy whore and play something decent once in a while...
  11. #163 - Word Search by POWGI Howl to the Chief Collect all the trophies Enjoyment: 5/10 Difficulty: 2/10 Wow, it's been a while since I posted here. After doing that damn Jackalope trophy on Deponia Doomsday, I kinda lost my will to game for a bit. Managed to ease myself back in with Word Search by POWGI (which has been sat on my dash for months). I originally completed this game on my PS Vita and I really took the touchscreen for granted. Doing this on the PS4 was a slog, as you have to complete ALL of the word searches, rather than just a handful of them (like in other games). Glad I can now delete this from my dash. Despite being an "easy plat", this was an achievement for me. Very proud. #164 - The Long Reach Platnum Get all the trophies Enjoyment: 6/10 Difficulty: 2/10 No, that's not a typo. The platinum is genuinely called "Platnum" and it's triggering my OCD. It's the same story with this one, except the other way around. Originally completed on my PS4, waited for it to go on sale for Vita. This is a point-and-click adventure, which is a slow-burn horror story. If you enjoyed Dead Synchronicity, then you'll probably enjoy this game too. Some parts are frustrating, when the psycho maniac is hunting you down and he randomly spawns in different places. It's a really easy platinum. If you're going to get it, definitely buy it when it's on sale. #165 & #166 - Super Destronaut DX Platinum Destronaut Get all the trophies Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 2/10 Another easy bundled platinum game from Ratalaika Games. It's basically a really funky, colourful Space Invaders and it's FUN! All you need to do is earn a certain amount of points in Classic, Timed and Hardcore modes and complete 12 challenges. The first 12 challenges in the list are easily done, with some patience. If you're a fan of the old classic shooter games, give this one a shot (pardon the pun!) #167 & #168 - Fullblast Platinum Ship Get all the trophies Enjoyment: 9/10 Difficulty: 1/10 Yet another easy bundled platinum game from Ratalaika Games. And yet another Space Invader-y type of game. After having played Super Destronaut DX, I didn't think I would enjoy this one as much - I was so wrong. I actually preferred Fullblast to Super Destronaut DX. Shooting down the different enemy types was fun and getting weapon upgrades really made it a breeze. In comparison, the game isn't as colourful or enticing as Super Destronaut DX, but it sure makes up for it with the way it plays! Highly recommend if you like shooters and are looking for easy platinums.
  12. #161 - Goodbye Deponia Platinum Chalice You unlocked all other trophies. Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 2/10 After having played the first two Deponia games previously, I was looking forward to diving back into the third and fourth games. Goodbye Deponia is actually pretty decent. I enjoyed the story and the puzzles were challenging without being too frustrating. Compared to the first two games, I thought the gags were a lot funnier and the platypus collectables are cute as heck! I still stand by what I say: Deponia aspires to be like the Monkey Island franchise too much, but Rufus has nothing on Guybrush. If you've played Deponia and Chaos on Deponia, I recommend this one and... most probably leaving it at that... I'll explain why below. #162 - Deponia Doomsday Deponia Doomsday unlocked! You unlocked all other trophies. Enjoyment: 5/10 Difficulty: 5/10 First of all, I want to say a massive F-you to the developers of this game! The trophy 1001 Jackalopes (Create every jackalope and clone it) took me forever to do and it made me loathe this game. There are 243 different combinations and you need to load each one separately. It took hours. Literally HOURS. Not only that, but the story decides to mess around with space/time using portals and, to be honest, I lost interest in the story and skipped most of the text. Such a massive disappointment, considering the first three games were so strong. The third game ended on a cliff-hanger and I wish they'd left it. I'm just glad it's over. I swear, I convulse just thinking about Jackalopes now.
  13. #156 - Queen's Quest 2: Stories of Forgotten Past Platinum Unlock every Trophy. Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 2/10 Choo-choo, all aboard the Artifex Mundi train! This is their first release for 2019 and I was super excited when they announced it on their Instagram. I found it slightly odd that they were releasing the second Queen's Quest, so I contacted them about it. They said that due to "license reasons" they couldn't release the first Queen's Quest for PS4/Xbox One, so they've had to jump to the second one. The game itself was pretty fun! Compared to the other games they've released lately, there are so many hidden object puzzles and the trophies were much easier. It's just a little more time-consuming, but I didn't mind that one bit. I love Artifex Mundi games and I'm ravenous for moooooore. If you haven't tried an Artifex Mundi game yet, I recommend starting with Nightmares from the Deep. It's a blast! #157 & #158 - Access Denied Platinum Hacker Get all the trophies Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 2/10 (with guide), 6/10 (without) This is such a cute puzzle game! I played one level on my PS4 and then repeated it on my PS Vita, so my platinum unlocks are at the same time. I've used this tactic before (with Twin Robots) and it helps to repeat the level, rather than having to remember how you solved it. Some of the levels are pretty straight-forward, and others are downright horrible. I will admit that I used a guide for some of them. Especially level 19. What a dickhole of a level. If you like puzzles and problem-solving, this game is for you! The controls on the PS Vita were frustrating, to say the least. I'm just happy they put a zoom option in, or I would've given up. #159 & #160 - Drowning Drowning Platinum Good job! Completed all tasks! Enjoyment: 6/10 Difficulty: 1/10 This is a lovely walking simulator with a low-poly look which has a deep, powerful and moving story. A teenage boy discovers he has depression whilst attending school and this game goes through the motions of how he feels and copes. The game itself is beautifully drawn and the music is so solemn. It's very much like Everybody's Gone to the Rapture with its gameplay, with text popping up as you walk around. The game has a few items to collect as you walk around, but they're easily found if you pay attention (or use a guide). There are four hidden endings to find and then the platinum is yours. I managed to complete both runs (PS4 and PS Vita) in just over an hour. The new version of the game added a "Skip Scene" option, which reduces obtaining the platinum by A LOT. If you liked the style of Virginia or if you've been lucky enough to play Massira yet (I really want to play it), then this game will be right up your alley.
  14. @Dreamcatcher4891 - I asked them about this on their Instagram. They said that they can't release the first Queen's Quest due to "license reasons", but told me it's available on PC/Mac.
  15. #151 - 1979 Revolution: Black Friday True revolutionary Unlock all trophies Enjoyment: 6/10 Difficulty: 1/10 I picked this up in a sale and finally got around to playing it. It plays like a Telltale game with elements of Life is Strange. You have to make dialogue choices, take photographs, investigate documents and collect tapes. The only issue I had with it is that it's BORING. Gaming and politics do not mix and this game proves it. The trophies are mega glitched. Some popped when I hadn't even collected everything required for the trophy to pop in the first place. It's a meh game. Only buy it in a sale, it's not worth full price. #152 - Collar×Malice Collar×Malice You earned all trophies. Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 2/10 Another decent VN that I picked up in a recent sale. The characters were nicely drawn and designed and the story was interesting. There's a little "mini-game" you have to play as you go through the story, which is super easy to do. You have to press the button when two red circles cross-over each other. Super simple. I preferred this to some VN's I've played, but it's not up there with some of my favourites. #153 - Bad Apple Wars How Did You Like Them Apples? Obtain every trophy. Enjoyment: 6/10 Difficulty: 2/10 Yet another VN and I didn't like this one as much. The character designs were weird and the story didn't grip me as much as I would've liked. There are "touch" scenes where you have to press hot spots on the screen. Some of them are weirdly specific, so you should use a guide to help you with them. If you like the weird VN's, this is for you. Sadly, it wasn't for me. #154 & #155 - Mixups by POWGI Mixed Feelings Collect all the trophies Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 1/10 Another offering from POWGI and this one was fun! I'm super grateful that you don't have to do all the categories, only specific ones to earn the trophies. I think I preferred One Word over Mixups, but it's not as tedious as Word Search. I appreciate that these games are bundled in the store for PS4 and PS Vita users. I wish more games would do this.
