  1. #67: Astro Bot Rescue Mission Difficulty: 4/10 Enjoyment: 9/10 Rarity: 15,17% I really recommend this game if you like platformers and have a VR headset. You play as a little robot that is trying to save his friends. You watch the robot from like a bird eye perspective. This perspective gave me some pain in my neck but that was in like brief moments. The worlds all look fantastic and are varied enough to not feel the same. Every level has kind of a gimmick, like spraying flowers to climb a bean stalk, revealing hidden parts with a searchlight,.... The worlds have also great music tracks. There was only one level I didn't like and that was the last level of world 5. The enemy placement in that level was just BS sometimes. The bosses are easy except for the last 2. But it feels really great to watch big bosses in VR before your eyes. You feel so small . Every level contains 8 robots to rescue and 1 chameleon to unlock challenge levels. In the challenge levels you can rescue two more robots based on your performance. The challenge levels are mostly easy, taking a couple of tries. But there is a challenge early on in the game were you need to be as fast as possible while using a hookshot. The hookshot is the worst thing in the game. It didn't go were I pointed to and trying to be quick with it was frustrating. But the hookshot is not used very often so that makes up for it. The challenges also contain doing every boss without getting hit. The last 2 bosses were so frustrating to do this. They take way to long and are not that fun to begin with. You can also collect coins. you can purchase a try in a grapple machine to collect toys. You can then navigate through the collected toys in the robots space ship. It's really charming. And the quality of the toys you unlock after you get them out of the machine is great. There is a lot of detail in them. But there is a lot of details in the game as well. The robots you need to rescue scream help in an adorable way, so you know that you are close to them. The chameleon also makes a noice but I found that out way later in the game. I really enjoyed this game and if they could bring one more Astro Bot game to the PS4 I would be really happy!
  2. PS1: Resident Evil 1 Because it's the only game I played on it. But even then it's a really good and atmospheric game. Especially when I played it with my brother without a memory card. We tried to beat it but always ended up dying. One time we got really far but we got so nervous and scared that we stopped playing and watched the rest of the game on Youtube. PS2: Sly Cooper 2: Band of thieves It was a really close one with Kingdom Hearts 2, but Sly 2 was in Dutch so I could understand the story as a kid. I got this as a present for Sinterklaas (a Belgium version of Christmas) and loved the box art. But man the game was awesome but I could never beat the last boss. Even when I replayed the game last year I had a hard time with the last boss. After my first playtrough I always played the game again with my brother, each taking turns in completing a mission. I really loved the mission debriefings and I always used MS Paint to mimic them. I'm really sad that after my last playthrough of the game the game ended up being corrupt. PS3: Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time Granted I have not played a lot of PS3 games but this is such a fun game and is in my opinion the second best Sly Cooper game. I really tought I was not going to like this one but I was genuine surprised by it. I liked all the hub worlds and all the characters. It also has a good story. I'm really dissapointed we didn't get a Sly 5 on the PS4 or just a whole remaster of the series. PS4: Life is Strange This game has such a fantastic story and great characters. It has also some really nice set pieces. Music is great to. I always tought that it was just a story about taking photographs. Man was I in for a rollercoaster. This is problably my second favourite game, my favourite is Dust an Elysian Tail but I played it on the Xbox 360 so it could'nt make this list. I still have a lot of Playstation games to go trough, so this all could change. But in all honestly, you cannot replace the great memories of playing these games.
  3. When the news of a Harry Potter RPG was posted on game sites I was really excited. After seeing this trailer I'm hyped. I really hope this delivers!
  4. #66: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Difficulty: 3/10 Enjoyment: 8,5/10 Rarity: 21,37% Where is the time that I played this game on the PS2 at my nephews home and wanted the game aswell. And then I got the game and got stuck for reasons I don't remember anymore. As a kid I always liked all the moves the prince could do, like wall running. And I still do now as an adult. You have a lot of moves to fight with, like bouncing of walls to attack, climbing on an enemy to attack it's back,... The most usefull moves the prince has are the one's you get thanks to the dagger of time. You can freeze time to have an advantage over the enemies, do a devestating mega freeze attack that is like a screen clearing move,... Using the time abilities cost sand from your sand tanks that you can refill by stabbing an enemy with the dagger of time (which you need to do to completely destroy them) or finding sand clouds that also gives you more sand tanks if you collect 16 of them. You can also get more life by drinking from the hidden fountains. I always liked the mechanic that water heals you. This make it so that every river or fountain can heal you. Even the bathwater can heal you, they should have used that in the marketing of gamer girl bathwater. You also get a companion called Farah. She was a childhood crush of my :). Although she can be helpfull by stunning the enemies, she is rather annoying. She can shoot you with her bow and even kill you with it. If she dies you need to restart from a savepoint. And she never moves in a fight so it also really easy to hit her and kill her. And she always points out the obvious like You have opened the gate". The prince itself is a d*ck. Thinking that he is better then te rest and not listening to Farah because she is a girl. This annoyed me so much because I always liked the prince as a kid. The game is not to long, finished it in like 8 hours the first time and was on a quicker course to clear it in my clean up playtrough. But the fighting gets so repatitive and cheap. Like if the enemies knock you on the ground the can just destroy you. And if you have to fight you need to fight a lot of enemies in one room to clear it. This especially hurts when you go for the "Game master" trophy in which you cannot rewind time more then 20 times. Yes you can rewind time in this game, given that you have enough sand for it. It's really usefull if you make a bad jump or if you die during a fight. You can just rewind time so that you have not restart the whole fight. Altough I did not use it that much in my playthrough, I found it a cool mechanic. The platforming in this game is really fun. It's not challenging but it still fun to run on walls and jump from them and then jump from a pole. I also liked that there are no loading screens. This makes the game flow better and it really gives off that vibe that you are traversing a castle. I encountered a few bugs like scarabs ( ), audio glitches (mostly in the first section of the game) and an untextured room The voice audio is also really quiet, I don't know if that is a glitch or not but it's hard to hear what the prince and Farah have to say. There are also no subtitles making it harder to hear what everyone is saying. Also the camera can be a massive pain in small rooms during fights. Even with all of the negatives, I really liked playing this game. It has a really charming environment and it's just bringing me back to the good old days while playing my PS2. But if the rumours are correct for the remake of this game, I would problably wait to play that one instead of this version of the game.
  5. When I get the platinum of the game or 100% I never play that game again on the console I got the 100%/platinum on. Like others have said, I've a lot of games that I want to play. Most of the time if I've the platinum I feel like I've got my moneys worth with that game. But there are exceptions like Far Cry Primal were I got every collectible and completed every side mission, even though it's not necessary for the platinum. If I liked a game enough (like Life is Strange), I'll buy it on another system, not full price though, so I can replay it and can get all the trophies/achievements again. Altough with both Ps plus and Xbox gold you have some chances to get some double games.
  6. #65: Hitman: Blood Money Difficulty: 4/10 Enjoyment: 8,5/10 Rarity: 12,37% Now I have all the platinums from the Hitman HD collection. I really liked this games and it's missions. It was really fun to sneak around on a boat, partycrash a wedding and help recover alcoholic gangster through killing them. I really liked the accident system, giving you more oppurtunies to kill your targets. Also the music is really great like the other games in the HD collection. There are also some downsides with this game. I feel like the coin is worthless and that I couldn't get it to work like I've seen in all the videos I watched about this game. Also some targets had really long walk cycles so I had to wait like 6 minutes to assassinate them. And if I failed on pro, I had to wait the whole walk cycle again. I also sometimes got a witness while there was no one around me. All in all I really liked the game and cannot wait to start Absolution (even though most Hitman players say that it's not really a good game).
  7. #62: 2064: Read Only Memory Difficulty: 2/10 Enjoyment: 8/10 Rarity: 7,30% So I thought this was going to be a point and click game but it is more a visual novel. The story is fun to unfold with some emotional scenes. There are some really great music pieces. Also the cast of characters is great. There are also some fun jokes and trophies. Some problems I had with the game were the controls to shoot. You have to do this like a few times but it's so sluggish. And there is a trophy tied to one of the shooting sections where you cannot get hit and it's harder thanks to the bad controls for it. Also there are a few moments you need to input something and the controls to input something don't work for most of the time. I don't know how you can f up an input screen. Also there are some philosophical moments which I didn't really care for. All in all not a bad VN, not for everyone but if you got it with PS Plus I would at last say to give it a shot. #63: Spy Chameleon Difficulty: 5/10 Enjoyment: 5/10 Rarity: 11,91% This one tormented me for a long time but I finally did it. What started as a fun little stealth game turned into one of the most frustrated games I've ever played. You need to be so pixel perfect with every move that it's just not fun. I followed videos for all the collectibles and speedrun trophies and I swear that everytime I did the same as the person in the video, I got caught. And for the trophy to complete the game in under 18 minutes you to get so under the par time for most levels, I cannot understand how they tought this was ok. Just don't bother playing this game for you own sanity. #64: Sound Shapes (EU) (PS4) Difficulty: 5/10 Enjoyment: 6,5/10 Rarity: 27,64% And just like Spy Chameleon, this is a game that drove me mad for so long. I cannot understand how so many people have this platinum. Must probably be the auto popping trophies for other systems. And I don't blame people for doing that. To be honest the story mode in this game is really great and I would recommend playing that. In the beat school levels you have to listen to a music piece and then create the music chart for it. It's a fun little puzzle but after like doing two I started spamming the notes all over the place until I completed it. And then come the death mode levels. Those can just bugger off. It's all luck based. So you need to get a set of notes in time. Does not sound to bad, but the notes always spawn random. So most of the time you get a wave of notes you cannot get in the time limit. And you need to dodge difficulty obstacles while trying to collect everything as fast as possible. Some levels you will get lucky and get it on the first try. And while you are doing that you'll listen to sometimes earraping music. It's just a recipe for disaster. Just play the story mode and play some beat school levels but stay away from the death mode levels. I'm really glad those didn't return in the DLC.
  8. I watched a playthrough of this game I think a year ago and it looked very interesting. At first glance I think the trophy list is for getting all the spycams done, probably not to hard once a guide is out (not that I will use one on my first playtrough if I decide to play it ).
  9. #61: Until Dawn: Rush of Blood Difficulty: 7/10 Enjoyment: 9,5/10 (if we don't count Psychotic mode, that mode is a 3/10 for enjoyment) Rarity: 1,56% If you have a VR headset, liked Until Dawn then I definitely recommend this game. Even if you have never played Until Dawn, I will recommend to play Until Dawn and then this one. This game is an on rail shooter set in the Until Dawn universe with great atmosphere. There are lots of good jumpscares and some nice throwbacks to Until Dawn. It was really fun to shoot things with the move controllers. There are also some parts where you need to duck and dodge obstacles. The game itself is really short. Think I finished it the first time in like two hours with some breaks in between levels. But I had lots of fun from level 1 tot the last level. But then you have Psychotic difficulty that is just a mode to ruin all enjoyment you had in this game. Psychotic difficulty is just insane difficulty but you have one life to complete all the levels. While insane difficulty is pretty doable with checkpoints doing it without is just a pain. After each level I uploaded my save to the cloud an reloaded that if I died. But then it the later levels I was just doing 3 hours of reloading, dying, crying, asking if throphy hunting was worth it and repeat :). The first couple of levels were very doable, only dying a few times. But then came level 6 were I died a lot. And that level is a real slow level to start. Like all levels have like an unskippable cutscene but level 6 and 7 have like nothing to do in the beginning part. While that was fine the first time, because of the atmosphere, I started to get really annoyed. And then came the last level. I didn't want to give up but it was the worst thing I've ever done in my life on psychotic difficulty. I cursed a lot, my bullets started to not register and my mom got angry because I sweared the whole time. But when I finally completed the level I was shaking and almost crying that it was over. Now that I rambled enough I'm going to give a short conclusion. Play the game on normal, get all collectibles, play it on insane and then never look at the trophy list again.
  10. I enjoyed the Goosebumps game on the PS4 so I probably pick this up at one point or another.
  11. #59: Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Difficulty: 5/10 Enjoyment: 8,5/10 Rarity: 11,36% If you love horror games and you have a VR headset, I really recommend to play this game with it. RE7 has a great cast of main characters that I really hope to see in next RE games. It also has some really great scenes which I didn't see coming. I really liked to explore the Baker house and uncover the back story from the Bakers through files. The game has also some good jump scares which with were really effective while playing in VR. Also what they did with the 'Don't tell Aunt Rhody' song is simply awesome The madhouse difficulty has also some changes that made it more intense to play it and put me more on edge. But thanks to the cool unlock you get from the speedrun trophy, it was manageable. The game is not perfect though The game starts really slow and you cannot skip cutscenes making it a little slog to replay it. But once the game opens up it's a great joy to replay it. Also the loading screens are really long (especially when starting and completing a tape). There is also a part at the end of the game that was not so fun to play through. I also would have loved to have some more puzzles but that is just personal taste. Also don't buy the season pass at full price. While the dlc is fine it's not worth the full asking price. #60: Crypt of the Serpent King (EU version) Difficulty: 4/10 Enjoyment: 8/10 Rarity: 53,83% So I tried the demo of this game like months ago while my younger brother and sister were watching. We made jokes about the game and my sister wanted me to buy the full game to make more jokes about it. The game itself is not bad. You go through a randomized dungeon collecting keys and slaying enemies. With the keys you can open the gate to the boss and end the level by defeating him. While killing foes you also earn experience points and collect gold. You can upgrade yourself (although I did not notice any difference by doing that) and buy new weapons. There are seven levels and every level has a new enemy type and a new hazard to avoid to get the key. There are some problems with the game though. Level 2 is the hardest level in the game (on every difficulty) thanks to the broken hitboxes of the enemies in that level. And they decided to let you the fight the boss of that level in a really small cage. The jumping feels really off, so every jump I held my breath because I did not know if I jumped over the lava or in the lava. The music also starts to get real horror like in the later levels. That made me actually scared that something strong would pop up to ruin my day. All trophies are for completing the levels on easy, normal or hard but they don't stack. Making you play through the game three times. Not that it's a long game, every level can be beaten in like 10 minutes even on hard. I can see why people will find this game boring and tedious. There is not much variation in the gameplay and completing every level 3 times can be boring. But I did play like 1 or 2 levels after work so it was not to tedious for me.
  12. The third one was a lot of fun to get all the achievements in, so I would not mind to do it again. But I had rather all three in one package then only the third one. I really need to start the fourth game and gat out of hell.
  13. #58: Rise of the Tomb Raider Difficulty: 4/10 Enjoyment: 8/10 Rarity: 7,55% I bought the 20 year celebration edition and let me say that there is a lot of content in that package. So if you have to choose to play this game on Xbox one or PS4 I would say PS4 because you can get all the content in this game for a good price. I enjoyed playing this game. It's fun to kill stuff with your bow and explore the world at your own pace. I felt that progress with new weapons and skills were much better then in the 2013 reboot. The challenge tombs were also more fun this time then in the previous game. Altough I enjoyed the 2013 version reboot better (much interesting environment and story) I would recommend this game to anyone who played the previous one. The trophies in the main story are for the most part easy, except for the kill trophies (kill 5 enemies with one poison arrow and stuff like that). I did those in the DLC. A big portion of your time will be completing every score attack challenge with a gold medal. This is basicly completing the whole game again but you score points or lose them. I did not enjoy these one at first but I felt proud when I finally got the last gold medal. And it was a lot of fun to just reign dead with unlimited poison arrows. The biggest role in this challenges to get points is with cards. You can buy this with real life money or with coins you can earn while playing the campaign or doing challenges in the score attack levels. This is a little bit luck based to get good ones like the unlimited poison arrow card (which is a major help in getting gold medals). Most of your cards are also a one time use. Luckily you can go the leaderboards and copy the cards from other players and you start with a lot of cards if you have the 20 year celebration edition. If you choose this option you can't complete challenges while playing score attack but it's a small sacrifice for making your live easier. There is also a mode where you can create like little challenge maps and upload them online and play other users ones but I haven't really touched that mode because it was not required for the platinum. Now I only need to complete 2 more DLC's for the whole 100%.
  14. #57: The Playroom VR Difficulty: 3/10 Enjoyment: 8/10 Rarity: 6,91% Everyone with a VR headset should download and play this free game. The robots are really cute and every world looks great. Every world is a different mini-game and is played with one person with the VR headset and ranging from 1 to unlimited TV players. This was really fun playing with my brothers and sister and we all enjoyed it. Truth to be told, if this was not a VR game then I wouldn't enjoy it to much because it are all simple mini-games. Everyone that is logged in gets trophies, so if I'm being honest there were some trophies I didn't get while wearing the VR headset but still got them because someone else unlocked them while playing with the headset. But still, I helped to let them get them :p. A little description of the mini-games: - Cat and mouse: The player with the VR headset plays the cat and need to catch the mice (tv players) that are collecting cheese. This one was my least favorite because I didn't have the patience when I played as the mouse and as the cat I was really bad. - Ghost house: This one was the most difficult of the mini-games to get all trophies in. The tv players see the ghosts on the screen and need to tell the VR player were they are. The VR player then needs to catch the ghost. - Wanted: The tv players need to describe a wanted poster to the VR player. The VR player needs to shoot the robot that the TV players describes. This one was really charming with the intro and all the things that happen between rounds. - Monster escape: The VR player plays a big monster that needs to destroy a city. The TV players need to dodge the falling debris and rescue civilians. After that the mini-game ends in a fight were the VR player needs to dodge the objects the TV players are throwing to him/her. - Robot rescue: This is a platformer were you need to rescue robots from little monsters. A TV player is needed to rescue all the robots. - Toy wars: This one is a free DLC mini-game. The VR player shoots with a canon at monsters and the TV players are playing as a robot each with a different special ability. I recommend to play this with the maximum amount of players because it's really hectic and fun.
  15. Actually my brother bought RDR 2 but I can still play it
  16. #56: Sly Cooper: Thieves in time (PS3) Difficulty: 4/10 Enjoyment: 9/10 Rarity: 14,24% In a span of 3 months I've replayed Sly 1,2 and 3 on the Playstation 2 and for the first time I played this one on the Playstation 3. I liked the game more then I thought initially. The hub worlds are a joy to play trough and the missions are a lot of fun. The cast of characters are great as always, although the villains aren't as memorable as the first and second game (but still good). And the jokes they tell are enjoyable. The music is also great although I liked the music from the second game more. The hub worlds are full of secrets to uncover and collectibles to gather, which I always liked in the first and second game. The story is also great, but not the best of the serie. There are also a few negative points I have with the game. Caremlita's voice in dutch is a bit annoying compared to the PS2 games, but nothing to bad. Also jumping to a hook sometimes doesn't work and that ends up in dying or just starting to climb up again. Some of the boss fights are way harder then they should be. There is one boss that is in the center of a stone circle and you need to push all movable stones to him. But his attacks are hard to dodge and if you take to long you will need to start the whole process again, which takes a long time, to take another shot at the stone circle part. The last boss is a complete joke and is just not that fun to do. Sly Cooper is one of my favorite video game franchises and I really want to see him again on the PS4 in a new game. If you never played any of the Sly Cooper games I really recommend them! For those interested my overall ranking of the games from good to best is 1,3,4,2.
  17. #55: Men in Black: Alien Crisis Difficulty: 3/10 Enjoyment: 5,5/10 Rarity: 35,36% So I'm going to be honest here. I have never seen a Men in Black movie and only played this game because I wanted to play a short and easy game. This game is an on-rail third person shooter that is not that good. Cover does'nt really help to protect you and at the end of the game I was just not using it anymore. Also the enemies think they are in COD: WaW veteran because they are spamming grenades that are hard to dodge. Enemies blend in with the envoriment so they are sometimes hard to see. Also there is a chance that they get behind you and can still shoot at you and throw grenades and there is nothing you can do if that happens. The story of the game is not good and I was loosing interest very quick. There are also no subtitles which I find really stupid in a game from 2012. Visually the characters look really bad and I'm not someone who is going to critique graphics quickly. Some good things the game did was that there is some variety. Like flying with a car and shooting at aliens (which is not that fun because their is so much stuff going on and they placed objects in your way that are impossible to dodge), some interrogation sections and even a sort of point and click section (where you move really slow that it's not even funny). But I need to be honest that some of the levels were fun to play and the second time I played the game it was'nt that much of a chore anymore, but still nothing amazing. Yes you read it right, I played it a second time. You need to unlock the highest difficulty by completing the game once. That's a way to make your customer the game longer. The game itself is really short, I beat it the first time in 4,5 hours and the second time in like 2 hours (skipping the cutscenes), but some parts feel like an eternity. The final boss is a real mess to. Spawning little enemies that you can't see, healing 3 times to like half her health. This makes the final boss take longer then it should be. Trophy wise it's really easy but there is one trophy that can just die in a fire. You need to dodge mines in the flying car but the hitboxes are really bad. I got hit multiple times when I wasn't near them and there was one mine where you could just fly through. All in all this game can be a little fun but my advise is to just not bother at all.
  18. #54: The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 (ps4) Difficulty: 2/10 Enjoyment: 8/10 Rarity: 31,21% Before you play this game I recommend to play the first one to have a better experience. I could follow the story but their are a lot of references to the first one. I enjoyed this game, the backgrounds look fantastic, the OST is great and their are a lot of lovable characters. I also laughed at a few jokes and references to other games and movies. I felt accomplished after most of the puzzles although they are not very hard. The hidden trophies are also easy to know how to unlock them. The biggest flaw of this game is that the pacing in the beginning is really slow. The game is split in 4 characters and at the start of the game their is constantly switching between them. That makes their stories hard to connect. But when everything starts connecting the story get interesting in my opinion. Till the middle of the game your also at the same few scenes and that gets old really fast. Their are also two really stupid puzzles. One is starting a machine but it's just trail and error and the other is an optional, but still needed for the platinum, puzzle where you need to navigate a dark labyrinth with sound cues where the music is to loud to hear something. You can also not restart the labyrinth and the auto saves screws you over so many times in that puzzle. I would recommend to play this game with all it's flaws but only after you've played Grim Fandango on the PS4.
  19. I really liked the first one and I'm really happy to see a sequel. And a plat this time. Can't wait to name my citzens the most random names!
  20. The last of us: Left Behind The Evil Within: All three Borderlands 2: Tiny Tina DLC Borderlands 1: Zombi island, Claprtrap revolution and the Secret armory This are the ones that come to mind.
  21. Enjoyed the first one and I'm excited to finaly see what the second game has in store for me!
  22. I only read reviews as amusement and see how broken a game is. But I've never based a purchase off a review. I played games that got negative reviews across the whole internet and enjoyed them more then some games that got good reviews across the internet. I also watch some gameplay and if I don't like what I see I don't buy the game. At the end of the day it's you who makes the decision if you like a game or not.
  23. Singstar PS4: Just loaded up the free version for some laughs but didn't know you still needed to pay for the songs.
  24. So I was fighting against the lost brothers and died a few times. At one point the game said I got 0/260 health but I was still alive. I hadn't any potions anymore so I couldn't heal myself. Because I only got the fire brother I started to use magick crystal and defeated the last brother. The cutscene didn't play and I was stuck so I needed to restart. Really anoying because now I need to defeat the lost brothers again. Has anyone encountered this bug? Didn't find anything on Google.
  25. #53: Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension Difficulty: 4/10 Enjoyment: 7.5/10 Rarity: 18,21% This game showed me how lucky we are with a starting from checkpoint option. The levels are not that long but most of the trophies are earned at the end of a level and if you fail you need to restart the whole level again. And that can be very annoying. Dying is not really an option because you can only die when you are playing with two controllers (if you play solo you need to wiggle your control to regain health and if you can't do that it will automaticlly give you health back) and you need to die both at the same time which can be tricky if the hit detection is all over the place. There are times when damage won't register on you or the enemies. In between levels you can play 2 minigames. A crane game and Perry ball (throw the ball on the moving target) to gain tickets to buy figurines, characters, weapon mods and costumes. This minigames are fun for like 5 minutes and you need to play them a lot to gain everything. Also the hit detection here is all over the place. The game would have benefited from another minigame. The costumes and the figurines are nice and some of the weapon mods (different coloring for your weapon attacks and different sounds) are great for a few laughs. Like I said the levels aren't that long and every level implements like it's own thing. Only the jetpack levels are a bit to long for my taste. The only glitches I had besides the hit detection, was at the second to last boss. The boss stopped attacking and got stuck. I could'nt progress or die, meaning I needed to restart and do the whole level again. Beside all the critisim, the game is stille fun to play and some of it's dimensions are really fun to go through. It has the charm of the show and that is a one of its strongest points. I would say give the game a go but beware, the platinum is not the most fun one and can become a real annoyance when you need to restart the level a couple of times.
