  1. No. 65 : Call of Juarez Bound in Blood Platinum Name : Ace of Spades Hardest Trophy : D-Day - Destroy all the rafts before they land worst trophy by far, i'd rather replay Very Hard mode again than to try and nail all the rafts with the stupid cannon. Difficulty : 4/10 Personal Impression : 8.5/10 My first FPS platinum is a western shooter developed by Polish company Techland. Call of Juarez Bound in Blood is the prequel of the original Call of Juarez ( XBox and PC only) and tells the story of 2 brothers turned outlaws , Ray and Thomas McCall and their wild west adventures while searching for the legendary Gold of Juarez. This game was a blast to play. The controls are sharp , the controller felt really good (still won't beat a mouse but oh well..) and the graphics hold up very well to this day. You can switch between Ray , a dual wielding pistol badass that is more muscle than brain (his Dynamite overusage shows that) , and Thomas , his nimbler but more accurate brother. While Thomas can't pack as much firepower as Ray, he makes it up in accuracy and his skills with a rifle. It;s a delight to play as both of them. Multiplayer is surprisingly fun and it's a shame nowadays it's a dead mode. Farming for the 1 million dollars with a boosting team ( thanks guys! ) didn't feel boring at all and by playing legit you can have a ton of fun also!! Provided you can find players that is. Definelty a must play if you enjoy both shooters and old western themes.
  2. #65 Call of Juarez Bound in Blood .

     

    Finally I platinumed on PS3 one of my favourite games from the golden PC days. What a great Western FPS. Coincidentally it's my first FPS platinum also !

    Wished the first one was also ported on PS3... loved the first Call of Juarez more. Reverend Ray is one mean badass

      Nice work! That was a fun game. 

  3. Before-weekend update : 1. Devil May Cry (PS3) - 14% -> 54% 2. Devil May Cry 3 (PS3) - 1% 3. One Piece : Pirate Warriors 2 (PS3) - 11% 4. Brutal Legend (PS3) - 18% 5. Bayonetta (PS3) - 2% 6. Alice : Madness Returns (PS3) - 0% -> 3% 7. L.A. Noire (PS3) - 5% 8. Deadpool (PS3) - 11% -> 30% -> 34% 9. Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (PS3) - 5% -> 10% -> 25% -> 57% -> 84% 10. J-Stars Victory VS+ ( PS3 NEW) - 22% 11. Demon's Souls (NA version PS3 ) - 100% Yee-Haw simulator almost complete. I am at chapter 11 out of 15 and honestly... the waltkthrough on Very Hard is quite easy so far. Should also help the fact that I played Call of Juarez religiously on PC before Ray is still a badass gunslinger and as long as you don't go rooty tooty shooty like in a DOOM game , the challenge is decent. The only cheap stuff are the dynamite tossing assholes that are random and can 1shot you . With a bit of luck I will get the platinum today after work. It will be fun to pop 5 trophies at the same time ! After this beautiful game, mr 'Pool is next.
  4. I guess I don't usually touch games whose names I can't even pronounce right. Just picking out the main meaty ones , because I bet out there there are several obscure japanese fighting games on PS4 ported from arcade only in japan that asks you to defeat 30000 opponents in a row while in ranked match (for a measly bronze trophy) which would put any PS3 list to shame. Japan is magical at pulling those kinds of stuff.
  5. Since lately I've returned to the PS3 backloggery , I honestly couldn't agree more with your statement. Not to say that there aren't games that are a pain to platinum on PS4( apart from small games like Slain : Back from Hell , Injustice 2, Bloodborne and DMC5 were pretty pain-inducing plats) HOWEVER compared to PS3... not even close. Some PS3 trophies remind me of the glorious Steam Achievements where you almost have to sacrifice your neighbour for an achievement. Just to give a proper example ... Demon's Souls vs Dark souls 3/ Sekiro. Any of it works. While DS3 and Sekiro aren't the easiest of games ( you need an NG+ run at least for each of them and for a newcomer they will absolutely whoop your ass) the trophies are...pretty straightforward. Kill this, gather that , rings can be traded, farm level Y . Plain and easy. Yeah...good luck with that on Demon's Souls. Game is a pain even with a guide ( nobody mentions that Black Phantom Satsuki will destroy your sorry ass unless you have a greatsword). Without a guide...figuring out World Tendencies and Character Tendencies is horrendous. Even Dark Souls 1 was difficult with all the upgrade paths and figuring stuff out. Example 2 : As @Spaz mentioned , God of War . God of War 2018 is a very good game ( I personally love it alot) however trophy wise the hardest trophy was...idk finding all those ravens? Compared to the first God of War and its absurd challenge of the gods, GOW 2018 felt like a walk in the park. Or GoW 3 on Titan Mode , whoowhee that one was a challenge! Also fighting games! Injustice 1, MK9, Street Fighter 4, Marvel vs Capcom 3 , Skullgirls 2nd Encore , holy mama those are crazy to platinum. Mad respects for the skilled ones that do that , I suck at those apart from Guilty Gear. But the latest ones.... MK11 , Samurai Shodown , Tekken 7... finish the campaign, play some onlinery , do a stupidly easy cheesy survival mode and poof platinum. THEY ARE NOT BAD GAMES JUST EASY PLATINUMS ( somehow I feel the need to mention this at every paragraph in case people would misunderstand my words, Samurai Shodown is a very good fighting game) There's more examples but it will take alot of space to waste just to cover them. One thing is for sure : I am playing some games on PS3 as of late and boy getting all them trophies is a blast(Call of Juarez Bound in Blood is a perfect example, that multiplayer was friggin godlike , the most fun I've ever had in a long while while going for them money) . On PS4 I feel that thrill only with games faithful to the franchise (mmm...DMC5... S rank on everything) or games that are straight up ported from PC (Hey there Mount and Blade Warband). However... I don't really mind it. Sure the plats are easier but the games themselves are pretty good. I mean, ok God of War is easy to plat however do yourself a favour and play it on Give me God of War challenge. Oh how it will challenge you ,that mode. Sure if one goes only for the platinum then the view about the game quality might be abit distorted but...game ain't only about the platinum. At least that's my opinion
  6. No. 64 : Demon's Souls (NA version) Platinum Name : Toughest Soul Trophy Hardest Trophy : Soldier's Trophy - all unique weapons collected - World Tendency is still one of the stupidest mechanics in a souls game, glad online is dead. Difficulty : 3/10 (second DeS platinum) Personal Impression : 8/10 I covered my initial impression about the game in entry No. 5 (my initial platinum) . This platinum would be around my 25th ish run in the land of Boletaria. Knowing the layout of the game and the several intricate mechanics that a newcomer would be lost in, I went in headstrong and prepared to ruin everything. I still got my butt kicked in world 4 and 5 but it wasn't as bad as the first playthroughs ever For my weapon of choice I decided to go with Sticky Compound LongBow. Paired with heavy arrows and a decent investment in Dex, game became trivial. Most enemies would die in one shot. The fatter enemies would die in 2 shots. I also used some duping for materials ,souls and arrows because as you might know, this beautiful game is plagued by some dumb mechanics and decisions so I decided to bypass the headache. As usual the best world is world 3 Tower of Latria, kinda one of the best horror levels in a non-horror game. Jesus that level is creepy to the max! On the opposite spectrum , world 4 and 5 are beyond crappy, especially if you are used with the Dark Souls 3 speed. To note, 5-2 is the original Blighttown/Farron Keep. Those levels have nothing on that bullshit of a valley of defilement. Bosses...apart from Maneaters who are really dickish, they were trivial really. Special shoutout to False King Allant for still being a badass but with a bow you can even stunlock the AI of bosses, notably flamelurker. At one point he decided to stop in his tracks and ignore me while I was pelting him with arrows. World Tendency is still crappy. Without a guide good luck figuring that mechanic out. For the black phantoms I strongly recommend investing in at least 16 STR and get the Dragon bone smasher. The black phantoms (required for a ring) hit like a truck and can very well one shot you depending on your build. This is not a solid impression , more some random rambling about a game i've played a lot of times to obsession almost . Still it will be a very dear game to me and maybe in some time I will attempt the japanese release for my third and final platinum. But until then...time to focus on other games
  7. Tuesday Update : 1. Devil May Cry (PS3) - 14% -> 54% 2. Devil May Cry 3 (PS3) - 1% 3. One Piece : Pirate Warriors 2 (PS3) - 11% 4. Brutal Legend (PS3) - 18% 5. Bayonetta (PS3) - 2% 6. Alice : Madness Returns (PS3) - 0% -> 3% 7. L.A. Noire (PS3) - 5% 8. Deadpool (PS3) - 11% -> 30% -> 34% 9. Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (PS3) - 5% -> 10% -> 25% -> 57% 10. J-Stars Victory VS+ ( PS3 NEW) - 22% 11. Demon's Souls (NA version PS3 ) - 100% Demon's Souls down! Finally I got one game from the backlog down I do take my sweet time with these games, understandably so since the deadline is February but hey no use playing if there's no fun involved! Continuing with the running and gunning in Call of Juarez Bound in Blood. That should be my next platinum!(unless I get sidetracked by Deadpool or Alice ... I just can't seem to follow my own plans lol)
  8. No. 64 : Demon's Souls (NA version) Platinum Name : Toughest Soul Trophy Hardest Trophy : Soldier's Trophy - all unique weapons collected - World Tendency is still one of the stupidest mechanics in a souls game, glad online is dead. Platinum Time : 3 days, 8 hours, 58 minutes Difficulty : 3/10 Personal Impression : 8/10 This being the second time I platinum Demon Souls (I don't usually stack unless it's a game I absolutely love), the playthrough was way easier of course. Game still holds up even by today's standards and is a good challenge for whoever is bored of the godlike skyrim status in RPG's. A great experience, I am still hoping for a remaster on PS4. Also world 5-2 can go to hell ( swamp level for souls players who never got Demon's )
  9. #64 Demon's Souls (NA)

    Welp this was an easy one (maybe because I played the game 20+ times already) . Still a very enjoyable experience , even the pure bladestone dropped after my 30th try or something(compared to 200+tries the first time...never forget lol).

    World 5-2 is still a pain in the ass though, that area alone killed me in total more than the entirety of Dark Souls 1.

    Definetly recommending it, I doubt I will do the japanese version though xD I kinda had enough souling around.

  10. Update : 1. Devil May Cry (PS3) - 14% -> 54% 2. Devil May Cry 3 (PS3) - 1% 3. One Piece : Pirate Warriors 2 (PS3) - 11% 4. Brutal Legend (PS3) - 18% 5. Bayonetta (PS3) - 2% 6.

J-Stars Victory VS+ ( PS3 NEW) - 22% 11. Demon's Souls (NA version PS3 ) - 0% -> 55% Did most of the Demon Souls playthrough, only have world 1-4 and the final boss left. However also stuck at the nastiest part of the game : pure moonstone/bladestone farming. This will take a while X_X . Still , a great game! A weekend well spent.
  11. [Demon's Souls] No matter how much I play this game I can't get bored of it. Cleared off quite a big part of it. Flamelurker was still a blast(lol) to fight and maneaters still kicked my ass off that stupid bridge. Tower  of Latria alone is more horror than 90% of the areas in Soulsborne(maybe upper cathedral ward in Bloodborne tops it up). Also world 4 is dumb, those skeletons are OP. 

    However today is time to man up and finish that horrible world 5.. It is the only world i haven't touched yet. With a sticky compound long bow +5 this game is pretty trivial though so should not expect much resistance . 

    Also glad there is no more online. No more world tendency mess up. That mechanic was pretty dumb. 

  12. After rewatching the trailer for the 10th time... Yeah i dig the new design so far. It feels like a massive change even compared to XRd. Still excited about it!
  13. WEEKEND UPDATE YAY! 1. Devil May Cry (PS3) - 14% -> 54% 2. Devil May Cry 3 (PS3) - 1% 3. One Piece : Pirate Warriors 2 (PS3) - 11% 4. Brutal Legend (PS3) - 18% 5. Bayonetta (PS3) - 2% 6.

J-Stars Victory VS+ ( PS3 NEW) - 22% 11. Demon's Souls (NA version PS3 NEW ) - 0% Finally done with multiplayer section of Call of Juarez. I enjoyed it but still farming ain't my thing. Time to finish campaign on easy mode with Thomas then prepare for Very Hard mode with Ray. Collectibles are a real pain though. NEW entry added - Demon's Souls NA version. I keep adding games I know but what can I do, I love them!
  14. Time to get Demon's Souls NA version!

    I don't usually stack games but...I am a Soulsborne fan and I miss some Demon's Souls clunkiness <3 

    Yey for pure Bladestone!!

      Yes sorry, I meant I can't platinum it. I already played the game at SL1 so it's not that difficult but well...umbasa I guess?
