  1. Just wanted to quickly say that I will retire after this season, gaming has become low priority atm and I want to make space for other people who are able to put more effort into it. Thanks to everyone for organizing/maintaining this event.
  2. Hi everyone, hope you're all still doing good here. It's been quite a while again since my last update. My apologies, life got in the way (when does it not) and I also think that after finally getting the platinum on fall guys (which was a really exhausting affair) I wasn't really in the mood anymore to focus on another single game for too long. Therefore ended up mostly playing new games for a couple months and only managed to finish a couple recent backlog games like Outlast 2 and Darksiders. However last month I decided to finally start tackling my real backlog again. First target ended up being the Tomb Raider reboot. I was still missing all of the multiplayer trophies and I had to do another playthrough of the game since I missed 1 conversation for the chatterbox trophy. Luckily managed to find a really good group to help me with the mp stuff and the extra playthrough was fun and felt fresh since I didn't remember that much. Good game but I don't think I'll ever touch it again now. Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition All 51 Trophies 7th April 2021 • Platinum in 1 year, 10 months 5.63% Next I finished up Erica, not much to say about this one, very easy plat, it's just a bit time consuming considering the 6 necessary playthroughs. I found it to be a pretty boring game too tbh, hence why such an easy one ended up in my backlog. Don't know if I even should include this one for the challenge but I guess it counts. Erica • EU All 34 Trophies 22nd April 2021 • Platinum in 6 months, 4 days 24.17% Lasty I decided to gather my strength and finally clean up the remastered Uncharted trilogy. Main reason why I did quit on these was because I tried out the brutal difficulty mode on the first one and it felt like the most unfair, ridiculous and broken piece of bs I had ever experienced. Coming back to it now a couple years later, I gotta say I have some more respect for what this mode is primarily trying to do. It really forces you to alter your familiar gameplay style and to find the most optimal strat for each and every encounter since even the smallest mistake can and probably will be the end. Almost every checkpoint is a challenge by itself and reaching the next one is often an incredibly rewarding experience. Doesn't change the fact that some sections are still just extremely poorly balanced to play on this difficulty but at least everything is always doable one way or another. Atm I'm done with both u1 and u2 with which I believe the hardest parts of the trilogy are behind me. Currently about halfway done with uncharted 3 as well and hoping to also finish that one up by the end of may. After that I'm planning to complete u4 and lost legacy as well. I don't think I really need to say anything about the games itself, very well known titles. Not the greatest games imo but they are good fun. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Remastered All 54 Trophies 14th May 2021 • Completed in 2 years, 7 months 15.89% 3.10% Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Remastered All 53 Trophies 20th May 2021 • Completed in 2 years, 7 months 9.08% 3.08% Apologies for the long post, had quite some stuff to talk about here, guess that's what happens when you tend to slack on posting updates like me 😅 Been catching up with all of your posts as well, great to see everyone still enjoying this event as much as I do. Untill next time, take care!
  3. Hi there, congrats on doing both of these! I just completed brutal in U1 without tweaks and I'm planning to do U2 without tweaks as well now and wanted to ask you how do they compare? Which one is harder (without tweaks)? I assume U2 will be harder but how much?
  4. I'd say the game just sometimes isn't balanced all that well in terms of difficulty. It's relatively smooth sailing untill you leave the graveyard. Both scarecrow fields and enchanted earth are some major leaps in difficulty and it took me, and probably many others who haven't played the original, by complete surprise. Feels like the best plan of action is to visit the ant maze first (make sure you have the hammer) since the chicken legs are 1 hit kills against the scarecrows. Dealing with the ant maze this early on was definitely tricky though, but i feel like it was easier then trying to kill the scarecrows without the chicken legs. You could also always just leg it and ignore the scarecrows and leave both these areas for later on but you would be delaying the chalices making the next levels also harder than they need to be, speaking of which, the pumpkin levels are just so incredibly easy in comparison, even easier than the early levels so the game can just be weirdly paced sometimes. Point being that some levels can and will just be a bitch without you really having to blame yourself for it, although it can massively help to just bring the right tools to each fight and situation.
  5. Ah okay yeah gotcha, also doing human abilities playthrough first, it's going really slow since I enjoy exploring a lot and this game is absolutely perfect for that, plan to make the 2nd run more of a speedrun as well, just really hoping all collectible trophies will unlock without trouble, even took some notes on the food and drinks too since I would otherwise forget which ones I had already done 😅
  6. Yeah pretty paranoid about stuff like that so I wanted to make sure no one would die but 8 fortified turrets was pretty overkill 😂 the anticlimax of it being over in 3 seconds was quite funny though You're already on your second playthough then? Or are you trying to do everything in just one?
  7. same problem, Prey is an amazing game, but quite a slow one in terms of trophies.
  8. Yeah same for me, haven't been that active at all last season due to exams but hope to do better next season.
  9. Could be, it's been a while since that playthrough. I do, however, remember following a video guide after missing that first convo in the hope of unlocking it regardless but to no avail, but with that in mind I shouldn't have missed anything on the beach. Doesn't matter I guess, I'm gonna do them anyway just to be safe.
  10. Just weird since the first convo with Whitman is the only one I missed and I didn't get the trophy, so either it glitched or you do need it, how you so certain you don't need it while every guide out there says you definitely need to have the first convo with him?
  11. First one is definitely needed?
  12. [EDIT]: never mind, just want to already say congrats to the one matching up against me 😉
  13. @ShogunCroCop Seems like a really cool idea to me! Just one question that came to mind, If the winner of the tournament also ends up winning his league will he be rewarded with an extra life for the CWC then? Or will the ticket go to the other finalist of the tournament in that case?
  14. I think I would have enjoyed this game if only they removed the constant need to refill oxygen... I want to explore every nook and cranny but I simply can't due to this stupid mechanic, I did "repair" my oxygen already which does help a bit but I was expecting it would just keep my oxygen filled at all times tbh but nope, still have to waste my time going after those stupid O2 cans all the time, it's just so annoying and it completely ruins the experience of the game for me. Yes it's more realistic, but that doesn't mean it's better... Stuff like Everybody's gone to the rapture and Tacoma, which are both very similar imo but lack this stupid idea of artificial difficulty, are far better games because of it. If this sort of game interests you, I would highly recommend those other two over this one.
