  1. Practice essentially. If you're able to do the speedrun trophy you're only one step away from Iron Mode on the same difficulty. The best way to beat iron mode is realizing almost every boss has a way to kill them in less than 10 seconds. Most of those you'll only have to dodge 1 or 2 attacks before the kill. Look up videos and practice. Iron + hard mode you only have to beat the first 4, plus 8 more in the second area, and the last 2 in the final area. As well, 1 of the 8 can and should be the hidden titan that doesn't fight back so you actually only need to beat 13 titans. Don't kill him on the speedrun though because it takes too long to go back and forth. If you want to be super cheap there's always the use of backup saves as well. Just don't be intimidated by the titans just because they're big and deadly. They die in one hit from an arrow.


  2. I assumed all endings and 100% compendium and Magatama were going to be required for the platinum. I skipped out on true demon ending on hard because this was one of my first SMT games. Now I can't wait to tackle it. Any clue if they're adding more demons? Coming from recently playing IV: A and Nocturne has way less demons so it'll make it feel slightly barebones.

    With this Pandemic going on, theft is more and more common these days. I had a neighbor's house got ransacked and even their safe was picked clean, it happened recently.

    Then it doesn't matter if you get it safe in your home, someone's just going to break in and steal it anyways.

    the opera scene sounding like a dog

    I haven't a clue what you're trying to say with that statement. Do you mean you didn't enjoy the music? Yeah, opera and theater music isn't for everyone, especially if it's limited to 16 or 32-bits chiptune. It primarily sounds like you're dealing with trolls online with your claim that others think X is bad for a one minute scene. There's definitely more one could have issue with in X than the laughing scene. VI, and all the games in the franchise, have flaws but it seems like you're just upset some strangers on the internet meme on or take the piss out of your favorite. Also, my opinion is that all the things you mentioned aren't cringey at all.

    Hahaha, yeah, I can play this game too:

    The laughing scene is much better.

    Elaborate why you hate the opera part. Is it the whole bit or just a certain part? It helped Celes break out of her shell, introduced Setzer, and Ultros's comedic relief is always splendid. Aria di Mezzo Caraterre is also an impressive song that was able to emulate opera-like vocals with just chiptune instrumentals. The laugh scene is fine too. It shows Yuna is starting to get along with Tidus and trusts him. Tidus understood the stress Yuna was going through and was trying to relieve some of it. Young people do silly things like that all the time, especially if they're starting to fall in love, so it wasn't embarrassing, cringy, or whatever to watch.


  6. The simple solution if you want to play this game and not support Rowling is buy a used copy. You'll have to wait an extra few days, weeks, or months but if you use eBay or similar sites the only one getting your money is the previous owner.


  7. I was about to start on some PS3 games after I finish a few more PS4 games. I really do want to just get every PS3 game I want to play out of the way so I can put away this console and never have to think about it again. However, I've had two PS3's die on me so I'm not too excited to play all PS3 games in a row. Regardless this event is perfect for what I'm planning on doing so I'll participate, maybe even remember I signed up for an event this time.

    That's 43 (unless I can't count) platinums plus a few non-platinum games I have left. I'm slowly looking through a list of PS3 games in case I missed anything I want to play. Suggestions on any games I should start on, skip, or add to the backlog is appreciated. I was going to start on Tales of Graces f, Ratchet: Deadlocked, and Zone of the Enders 2 first.


  8. I still enjoy most of the games I play that have trophies. Yeah, I haven't played many games without trophies recently but I'm still enjoying myself. I do however play past the point of enjoying the game just for trophies so it's understandable why people quit. There's a few games that going for the trophies actually made it more enjoyable but that's uncommon. It's usually action games, the DMC series and Furi to name a few, that I get more enjoyment out of going for trophies. If I stopped at the point of no longer enjoying the game I'd probably only have 10-20 platinums and less than 50% completion.


  9. Most fun platinums:
    1 - Dark Cloud 2
    2 - Devil May Cry
    3 - Furi


    Most grindy platinums:
    1 - Gauntlet
    2 - Final Fantasy X
    3 - Exist Archive


    Highest skill based platinums:
    1 - Furi
    2 - Devil May Cry
    3 - Devil May Cry 3


    Most boring / tedious platinums I earned:
    1 - Exist Archive
    2 - Gauntlet
    3 - Blue Reflection


    Platinums that I did not achieve, but wanted:
    1 - Tetris Effect
    2 - Vanquish
    3 - The Bit Trip

    I back up my save files, so I'm (at the very least) not the only idiot here.

    I think you forgot PS+ costs money too. Yes, there's also flash drives that costs $10 but that still costs money. As well, let me remind you that $10 means one or more meals for some people especially if they just bought a $60 game. And don't try to be smug about them buying games if they're short on money. Everyone needs entertainment or they're likely to go insane.


  11. I've been interested in trying more of the Science Adventure games besides Steins;Gate and super excited to see another one finally got officially localized (yes, I know Chaos;Child too). I was assuming that since the games were sold as a package it was going to share a trophy list but I'm happy they aren't. Hoping to make enough spare money to buy it soon.


  12. Shame man, I bought it about two months ago at $10 because I wanted more games like Valkyrie Profile. I remember this game having quite a bit of hype in the indie scene but then it released and a lot of people felt average on it. Not to mention the company fell out due to some scandal I already forgot about. I'll try it on an alt account eventually to see if I even like it because having a platinum and not 100% bugs me to infinity.
