  1. I think the method above posted by @JohnFPSKing is actually much faster and easier. You get 1000+ XP every 5-6 seconds (the amount of time it takes to restart checkpoint then press R1) and level up every 2-3 minutes on average.
  2. I’m glad someone bumped this thread because reading the replies from @Floriiss and @SlimSanta94 was completely fascinating! I really respect and admire the persistence and fierce dedication of people like you who set their minds on overcoming something extremely difficult, not to mention the raw skill on display. I know my limitations and when it comes to games there are some things I will just simply never be able to do. And dedicating months of time and hundreds of total hours of study and practice to conquering something like a Coda clear is just something I don’t think I am not built for, mentally or physically. I believe it takes a special kind of person and a very specific mindset to do something like that. Kudos! And congrats to you Santa, looks like you finally did it. 😊
  3. Have fun! And yeah this is exactly what I’ve been doing. I already sunk a few dozen hours into MP3 playing the campaign 4-5 times for trophies, and then doing all the multiplayer and DLC trophies online. Once I hit the really big grind for level 50, I just kinda lost a bit of motivation. My trophy output was dipping badly and I just really wanted to get to some other games and keep up my progress towards 200 plats (which I now achieved, yay). I expect to return to it pretty soon as I wrap up some of the other games I’m working on right now. Yeah I’ve done some really mind numbing online grinds myself, including a handful that were well over the 30 or so hours needed to reach lvl 50 on MP3. But none of them were really that bad. MP3 is a particularly brutal slog for some reason. Like you though, the thought of the servers going down unexpectedly and locking me out of the platinum is always a paranoid thought in the back of my mind. I know I would deeply regret it if this happened, so I need to just finally commit to it and get it done. Once I’m over that hump the rest should be enjoyable! Thanks for that tip btw. Luckily I discovered this myself early on. I can’t even imagine how demotivating it would be spending all that time replaying Ch. 4 for absolutely nothing lmao.
  4. Haha nice one! I’m so indecisive in between games sometimes that I’ve often thought of doing a community poll like this to put the decision in someone else’s hands. You beat me to it. 😜 Theres some great games there so you can’t really go wrong with any of them. But personally I voted for Days Gone. It’s free on PS+ right now, and it just so happens to be an amazing game with a relaxing trophy list, and easily in my top 5 funnest platinums I’ve done to date.
  5. I would love this, if only so I could chase the platinum when I get around to playing this. I just got my first taste of the Resident Evil series recently and it was fucking amazing. Since RE4 seems to be a fan favourite, I will play the original no matter what. But I’d love the chance to earn a shiny new platinum in the process.
  6. Yeah this is the plan. I just want to get it over with so I don’t miss out on a chance at the platinum. I’ve got all the other trophies including the DLCs already so I just have to find the motivation to grind out lvl 50 and I won’t have to worry about that anymore. I haven’t bought Wolfenstein 2 yet let alone attempted Mein Leben! I’ve seen half a dozen of my friends go through the process of obtaining that trophy and it looks pretty stressful and difficult! MP3 is kinda like a mini Mein Leben so I’d rather start with that and see if I can pull it off before even thinking about the Wolfenstein 2 platinum. Regardless though, I need to get around to playing that sooner than later.. those Wolfenstein games are so awesome! And after I hit my long term goals of 200 plats/10k trophies, I want to start shifting my focus towards bagging some more challenging games to add to my collection. 🙂
  7. Ok so just those 4 horde related trophies for passing wave 12 and escaping? Edit: Yep nvm. Got em. 👍 thanks!
  8. I noticed this morning that I popped one of the DLC trophies on a horde map, so I’m guessing that first DLC “Terror Lab” is completely free? Are there any other free DLCs or trophies that can be obtained without buying the season pass?

  10. I totally support this! In fact, I was just discussing this in a thread a few hours ago, so I’ll repeat the gist of what I said there. I really love PSNP’s guide format and think it’s superior to other sites in most ways. But one aspect where it’s vastly inferior to the guides on PlayStationtrophies (PST) is in the estimated time to platinum & the difficulty rating. I often find that PSNP guide estimates are way off, and this is because the estimates in the guides are nothing more than the opinions of the author, and doesn’t reflect the reality for the average player. PST uses a community voting system, where users who have finished a game can vote for how long it took them to obtain the platinum, and how difficult it was for them. It then takes the averages based on community input, and those numbers get inserted into the guide. Furthermore, I love that PST allows users to comment in the voting threads. I always skim through these comments when researching a game because you can learn a lot of crucial information about difficulty or time estimates, or other important information that might not appear in the guide. I think adding community averages on PSNP would vastly improve the quality of guides on this site. There is no reason not to really!
  11. You think people would learn... there have been many examples in recent memory where these sorts of analogies get people in big trouble (ex. Gina Carano getting fired from Star Wars a couple months ago), yet people continue to do it regularly.
  12. Congrats man! It’s a very impressive plat and one I hope to add to my collection in the future. I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately and thinking I should just start setting aside an hour or two per day for the lvl 50 grind now so I am at least making progress again. I did have a couple groups that experimented with boosting kills and in theory, it was a great method for XP. The only problem is that it’s not really viable unless you have a bunch of alt accounts or friends willing to spend their time boosting kills for you without anything in return. In a regular boosting group, you might get a hundred kills and a crap ton of XP in a single match when it’s your turn, but then you spend the next 7 rounds completely idle helping other players when it’s their turn. In the long run this means vastly less XP/hour than just running Score Attack solo. ☹️ And thank you, I just might take you up on that some time! I am a regular lurker in the NYMHC fails thread and love reading and studying people’s attempts at the run and soaking up everything they learned. I’m pretty confident I will be able to pull it off, it’s just a matter of setting aside the time to live & breathe this game again until I do. I’d like to finish the multiplayer first though before I attempt it, because once those MP trophies are out of the way I know I’ll never be locked out of the platinum.
  13. Just when you think you’ve seen all the crazy shit the internet has to offer, some guy comes along and compares the phasing out of the PS3 to the Holocaust. What a world we live in. 😂 Ayy bruv. Love the avatar btw, I don’t think I ever mentioned it.
  14. This one is much worse. 😉
  15. Congrats man! Looks like you put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this one. Well earned! 👍
