  1. The Ultra Rare Cleanup 2023 Introduction Year 2022 was a good year to grind more Ultra Rare games. Since everyone seems to still enjoy the event (big thank you for that!), me and @Arcesius invite you to also participate in the 2023 edition!! For the newcomers, you have the chance to flex your skills with those tough-as-nails “sub-5%” completion list* that require significant dedication and/or skill to achieve (* Obviously rarity != difficulty.. but UR games are easier to quantify, so Ultra Rare Cleanup it is!) This event will run through the entirety of 2023 starting 1st of January and will end on 31st of December. There will be no deadline for signing up, so feel free to join at any point! Thanks to the helpful feedback we received in 2022, we improved the rules abit this year as well. General Rules For the purpose of this event, only PSNP trophy rarity is taken into consideration! ELIGIBLE GAMES FOR THIS EVENT: A game is only eligible it it had at least one unobtained UR trophy, be it in the main game or DLC. Any UR game completed from the moment of registering is eligible. New Games - In case of a new game with an UR platinum, it is allowed if it's still an UR after 1 month of its release. Games with delisted DLC/closed servers : If you really wish to complete a game with server shutdown or delisted DLC, you can do so, but you must have at least one UR trophy in your list. Ultra Rare games that become Very Rare mid-event: If you pick a game that is initially Ultra Rare but becomes Very Rare before you can platinum it, it is still eligible. However, you must announce that the game has become Very Rare in this year (and eventually prove). EVENT STRUCTURE AND RANKINGS: In order to sign in....just post a comment in the thread saying that you want to join You will get one point per completed game. Additional points can be earned via completing the bounties from the MOST WANTED LIST Fully completing the game is MANDATORY! That involves full Platinum + DLC (exception being delisted DLC/closed servers) The event will be split into TIERS, and each tier consists of exactly five (5) games. There are no limits to the number of tiers that can be added. Once you complete 5 games, you will advance to the next Tier. You can submit your 5 games list at the beginning of the Tier or you can add your games as you complete them. YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO CREATE A LIST FOR THIS EVENT(optional) You can swap and switch your list as much as you desire. NEW!! Since there are more and more PS5 list re-releases, autopopping is allowed. However you are not allowed to autopop a Most Wanted game, it will be worth 1 point. No cheating. Self-explanatory, if you are caught cheating (and removed by the CRT) you will be eliminated from the event. Be respectful! Pretty self-explanatory, get along with others and all shall be fine and well. Don't, and well...you might be eliminated from the event Games completed in 2022 do not count for this event. At the end of the event, the person with the most points wins! THE MOST WANTED BOUNTY SYSTEM: Similar to the 2022 event, we have picked games that will be worth extra points. There are 4 quarters available in 2023 (3 months each Q) and 10 games per quarter. All of the games are known in advance. Once a quarter has finished, the games on the respective quarter are not eligible for extra points anymore (e.g. if you complete a game from Q1 in Q2, it will be considered a regular game and you will receive 1 point only) You will receive full points if you complete a bounty before it expires, regardless of the bounty's position (e.g. if you complete a Q4 game in Q1 the bounty is eligible). Autopops are not allowed for Most Wanted bounties! If a game becomes Very Rare during the event, it will be replaced from the Bounty list. People who enlisted the game will still get full amount of points, depending on time of completion. You can check the past events in the threads below: 2022 Event 2021 Event 2020 Event In addition, if you wish to create, sort or simply keep track of your custom list, you can refer to @HusKy's awesome PSNP+ script: Best of luck in your endeavor and don’t forget to have fun! This event is created as a collaboration between @Copanele and @Arcesius. Also a big thanks to @Mori for Most Wanted bounty support!

  2. Oh man, the "LEVEL ADP" souls this is the textbook "a fantastic game, but a not-so-great-Souls game" . Ironically, Dark Souls 2 ended up being my most played Souls game of them all, just because of how bonkers it is! I think that the warping from the get-go has been a good gameplay mechanic but also a downgrade in terms of story. If anything, I think the weirdest problem with this game is how the game is laid out in terms of levels (going from Harvest valley elevator up in...Iron Keep?Huh?) DS2 was way more game-y in this aspect. Although, I can respect the fact that the bonfires were still distanced (wait until you get to Dark Souls 3, they cover you in bonfires ) This ADP stat is the reason I mock DS2 and say "this game is bonkers". ADP influencing rolling is one thing, but somehow it also influences your estus drinking speed. Why they linked that to the estus gulping...no idea. At least you have healing gems, making Estus obsolete Damn...that's really a good one. Well I played with a DEX build and had no major issues (because powerstancing rapiers trivializes this game), but I did try to play as a pure STR build once. ONCE. Yeah, you said it right, i shall attack only when it's my turn to do so. I add one extra attack - I eat a fat sword to the face. At least magic is still broken in this game And this is doubled/tripled in the DLC! including bosses!! There's so many enemies (in Shulva especially).. Yep, again agreed Branches of Yore sucked, the lifegems made everything mad easy, the Human Effigies should have remained in Demon Souls (stone of Ephemeral Eyes crap). Glad they removed all this stuff from the next entries, but unfortunately they also removed Bonfire Ascetics which were really REALLY cool. I would've wished they added Bonfire Ascetics just so I can fight a NG+7 boss in DS3 without ACTUALLY replaying the entire game. Yep...game is still VERY good, its just fun to dunk on it Congrats, glad you liked the game! Can't wait to see your DS3 experience :> (do play the DLC, even if it has no trophies! that's where the best part is!)
  3. Suuuuper late to reply to this but DAMN, glad you liked Far Cry Neanderthallica quite the underrated Far Cry, but the tribal and the unga bunga stuff was super fun. I kept seeing this game around, but only now I understand what it's about. Hack&Slash adventure? Hmmm, maybe I should revive my laptop one of these days (doubt it could handle this game )
  4. Hahah I can't believe you actually went for injustice 2 of all games 😂😂 you have a knack of choosing only the fighting games that are guaranteed to either bore you out of your mind or annoy you with your jankiness! At least Skullgirls is a good one 😌although good luck with those trials! Eyyy, that's a great game :> So, for that sweet prologue thingie. Upgrade Nero's gun to the max and switch the button to L1 Fill Nero with Punchline and Buster arms, one Punch/ one Buster During fight, charge up pistol to lvl 3 (not 3 bullets, level 3 explosion bullet, that's why you need it max) while also throwing the punchline at Urizen When the shield breaks, do a full Buster arm grab on his ass Congrats you get 20k points and a cute S rank!
  5. Yes...I think...I will try this game too 😂it sounds SO WEIRD, like a pokemon creepypasta that somehow works! That was one funny review! Glad this fever dream of a game turns out to be actually good
  6. I'll stick to fighting against Ryu hadoken spammers for my bullet hell game fix 😂 Bullet Hell games really ain't for me Big thanks. Yeah I hope this game gets resurrected, because damn there's some fine girl characters in this game 😌 YOU HAVE TO! The plot is dumb but like, it's not "man what is this crap" kind of plot, it's the kind of silly plot that works Thoroughly recommending it. Both you and Honor need to get to it ASAP I WISH I WAS JOKING IN THAT REVIEW. It's one of my more serious reviews, THAT'S HOW THE GAME IS 😂
  7. Hi there everyone! After hitting the 60 plats milestone (something I never though I will do ) I decided to also create a Trophy checklist to keep track with all the stuff I have unlocked and enjoyed (or not). The games I have played are pretty common, nothing out of the ordinary, although in my case I only play the games that I know I will enjoy . There is only one significant exception to this rule ,a certain game that really gave me nightmares which will be mentioned below. I will list on the first topic all the games first, eventually I will add a small review /impression to all of them. This ,as usual ,will be updated in time because it will take quite a while. I will mention the games that I have earned both on PS3 and PS4 Without further ado , here's my list: 1.Dark Souls 2 (PS3) 2.Dark Souls 3 3.Bloodborne 4.Dark Souls(PS3) 5.Demon's Souls (PS3 - EU version) --side note : Yes I am a Soulsborne fan.

Batman : Arkham Asylum (PS4) 30. The Bard's Tale 31. Assassin's Creed Rogue (PS3) --side note regarding entry 32 : Before starting an Assassin's Creed binge, I went to a trip to Rome.

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood 34. Assassin's Creed Revelations 35. Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag 36. Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered 37. Assassin's Creed Unity 38. Prince of Persia Sands of Time 39.

Apotheon I will continue updating this list through my posts, in order to keep some sort of order. I also have some games without platinum that I 100% nevertheless mainly because I enjoyed them very much : 1.Puzzle Quest : Challenge of the Warlords 2.Assassin's Creed Freedom Cry (PS4) 3.Samurai Shodown V Special 4.Guilty Gear (PS4 - EU version ,first one to 100% it - I really love guilty gear series ) 5.Abzu Games that I will never platinum: 1. PES2015 - Servers are offline, platinum is unobtainable , besides I don't really like football, this was just a game to play with the dorm roommates 2. Overwatch - too troublesome to play, plus it really got boring. Can't be bothered to get all those stupid trophies. So there you have it , this is my list so far, I will of course update it by the time I finish more games. I will do my best to add a review/ impression over every single platinum / 100% as soon as I have some free time on my hand. I mostly play anything that I find interesting without caring that much about profile 100%. However I tend to steer clear from horror games ( I am a scaredy cat, can't handle jumpscares too well) , Sports games ( don't like them) or jRPG's (not a terrible fan of the japanese turn based stuff , I am more of a Disciples / Heroes 3 person - PC stuff). Apart from that , anything goes. You might notice that there are 2 grades I give for each game : Difficulty and Personal Impression. Difficulty is basically how tough I consider it is to get the platinum, pretty easy stuff. However Personal Impression is a grade given by an arithmetic mean between these subjects : Graphics, Sound, Gameplay, Storyline, Multiplayer and Fun factor. Of course if a game doesn't have multiplayer I won't add that grade into the calculation. Also I will try my best to analyse the games in regard to their year of release. Can't really tax God of War 1 because it doesn't look as crisp as God of War 2018 for example. Have a nice gaming day everyone and I hope you will enjoy reading my ramblings PLATINUM OPINIONS AND IMPRESSIONS 1 - 10 11-20 21-30 31-40 41-50 51-60 💯 % Zone Published Guides 1.Guilty Gear (1998 version) - PS4 2.Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus - PS3 3.DmC Devil May Cry - PS3 4.DmC Devil May Cry Vergil's Downfall - PS3 5.Death's Gambit - PS4 (collaboration with Arcesius) 6. Titan Quest Ragnarok DLC - PS4 7. Titan Quest Atlantis DLC - PS4 8. Samurai Shodown VI - PS4 9. Art of Fighting Anthology - PS4 10.The King of Fighters: The Orochi Saga - PS4 Grading system overhaul - 2022 edition- As I mentioned in my previous post, I decided to drop the grading of games via a numbering system and instead use a tier list. While I will continue grading the platinum difficulty as before (no need for that to change in my opinion), I do agree that games can't be graded with a simple number anymore. So in the past days I actually sit down and "tiered down" each and every game on my list, completed or not. It was a very fun activity, because I could look back at the games I've finished in the past and see how I feel about them in the present. Thanks to @DrunkenEngineer for giving me a nudge to approach this madness xD To recap: - My Tier list is 100% subjective. - Any and every game can be discussed in this thread. - The games are ordered only via Tiers. Within the tiers they are ordered randomly. Actually ordering them in a well-argumented and coherent list is a titanic work that only someone like @DrBloodmoney could pull 😂 I am WAY too lazy for that. - For the full experience I always count the DLC as well. If it's part of the game/trophy list, it shall be played and analyzed. - Tier list is this An example of why I love videogames - Games that improved my passion for this hobby, similar to a "level up" in terms of gaming experience. Also known as "I don't think I will find a game as good as this anymore" (obviously wrong xD ) Fantastic game - Amazing videogames that I have little to no negatives to say about, big thumbs up to the dev team. Worth an investment - As the name says, they're good games, overall had a great time with them, you may either buy them full price or at a discount, but I wouldn't say these are my favorite :D A good game with glaring flaws - Games that I wish were better. Or rather, whenever I felt like I had a good time there was a mechanic or a story point that made me go "ew what's this". You could probably skip this one - Games where I felt I wasted my time and are not really that great, but usually have one decent point that save them from the trash can. An absolute mess - These are the worst games on my list mainly from a regular point of view (shitty gameplay, awful story), basically games that I would never recommend no matter what. It makes me want to quit this hobby - The "bait" section, or rather the games that I personally hate with a burning passion. The irony with this particular tier is that they can be good games BUT I have a personal grudge against them for reasons that I usually cover in my posts. Some people love beans, I cannot stand them and I want to nuke them out of existence. But I will NEVER judge someone for liking the games that I despise. OK enough rambling, here's the actual list An example of why I love videogames Dark Souls/Dark Souls Remastered NieR / NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… Devil May Cry 3 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition The King of Fighters XIII Mount & Blade: Warband Shadow Man Remastered Persona 4: Arena Fantastic game Worth an investment A good game with glaring flaws You could probably skip this one An absolute mess It makes me want to quit this hobby Crash Bandicoot Shadow of the Colossus Garfield Kart: Furious Racing Catherine Note: You can find the original post and discussion at page 51 of this checklist!

  9. The Ultra Rare Cleanup 2022 - the "it definitely needs a better subtitle" edition - Introduction Following the (surprising) success of 2021 event, me and @Arcesius have decided to continue the "Ultra Rare Cleanup" edition this year as well. Therefore you have another chance to flex your skills with those tough-as-nails “sub-5%” completion list* that require significant dedication and/or skill to achieve . Again, this is the perfect opportunity to domesticate those pesky Ultra Rare games that only a few can do. (* Obviously rarity != difficulty.. but UR games are easier to quantify, so Ultra Rare Cleanup it is!) This event will run through the entirety of 2022 starting 1st of January and is a continuation of the Ultra Rare Cleanup event that took place in 2021. There will be no deadline for signing up, so feel free to join at any point! Also, the rules for this year's event were updated a bit, just to allow people enjoy the event more freely. General Rules ELIGIBLE GAMES FOR THIS EVENT: A game is only eligible it it had at least one unobtained UR trophy, be it in the main game or DLC. NEW!Any UR game completed from the moment of registering is eligible. New Games - In case of a new game with an UR platinum, it is allowed if it's still an UR after 2 months from its release or 1 month if it has a rarity under 2%. Games with delisted DLC/closed servers : If you really wish to complete a game with server shutdown or delisted DLC, you can do so, but you must have at least one UR trophy in your list. Ultra Rare games that become Very Rare mid-event: If you pick a game that is initially Ultra Rare but becomes Very Rare before you can platinum it, it is still eligible. However, you must announce that the game has become Very Rare in this year (and eventually prove). Event Structure and Rankings Fully completing the game is MANDATORY! That involves full Platinum + DLC (exception being delisted DLC/closed servers) The event will be split into 3 TIERS, and each tier consists of exactly ten (10) games. Once you complete 10 games, you will advance to the next Tier. You can submit your 10 games list at the beginning of the Tier or you can add your games as you complete them. NEW: NO MORE SWAP SYSTEM! You can swap and switch your list as much as you desire. NEW: MOST WANTED BOUNTY SYSTEM OVERHAUL! In the previous year we had a fixed bounty system. This year we plan to have a "Quarterly" Bounty system, where games on the Bounty list will switch every 3 months. They can be any bounty game ranging from murder games like Crypt of the Necrodancer to "why is this even UR" like Lords of the Fallen. The Most Wanted list is ENTIRELY OPTIONAL. You are not required to play any of the games mentioned there, you do your own list. Stacks are allowed, however autopops are not. Autopopping a trophy list would defeat the purpose of the event. No cheating. Self-explanatory, if you are caught cheating (and removed by the CRT) you will be eliminated from the event. Be respectful! Pretty self-explanatory, get along with others and all shall be fine and well. Don't, and well...you might be eliminated from the event You will get one point per UR game. Most Wanted games will have extra points, depending on the game. Games earned in 2021 do not count for this event. At the end of the event, the person with the most points wins! You can check the past events in the threads below: 2021 Event 2020 Event In addition, if you wish to create, sort or simply keep track of your custom list, you can refer to @HusKy's awesome PSNP+ script: Best of luck in your endeavor and don’t forget to have fun!

  12. No. 218 - Wildcat Gun Machine Platinum Name - Wild-Plat Gun Machine Hardest Trophy - Nosraep, True Form of the Beast - defeat the final boss Difficulty - 4/10 Wildcat Gun Machine! Say that 3 times in front of a toilet and you'll get the toilet paper blessing! Did that sound random? Well that's in tone with the game, because Wildcat Gun Machine is a purely random game, starting from the title itself! How did they choose that name? The same way the shirts have those random tags on them: Ok, funny pics aside, WGM is a isometric twin-stick shooter/bullet hell where you control the main protagonist, a white hair girl with a passion for cats (I think). I'll name her Wildcat by default, the game doesn't bother to mention what's her name. Actually the game doesn't bother to tell you anything - what are you doing, what's your purpose, who are the fleshy disgusting monsters that are shooting at you, nothing! It has the story complexity and depth of a Tetris game (if only it had the quality gameplay...) You aren't even given a tutorial - although in fact, you don't need one. You shoot with R2, interact with X, move with left stick and aim with right stick and that is all you will need, for starters. Later on you will unlock a dash move and a grenade throw but that's way too much tech already With that info in mind, you proceed through the various set dungeons, kill all the fleshy monsters and try to get to the 2 minibosses of each level before finally tackling the main boss level. Again, keeping it super simple. One of the highlights of the game is the artstyle - not going to lie, game looks good. Wildcat is in a cute chibi form, bouncing around. The monsters are actually disturbing and grotesque who would definitely fit in a space horror movie. The guns that you use are also pretty colorful and lively. However I felt that the game never reached that "mayhem" point that is always fun in twin stick shooters, no matter how many monsters appear, you never feel that you are truly tearing through them, like a DOOM game would do. Wildcat is cute; the monsters, not so much As a twin-stick shooter protagonist, you have a wide array of weapons at your disposal. The first one is a pistol who has infinite ammo but is weak and slow. Then there is the various machine guns, assault rifles, gauss cannons, laser snipers and such, who use limited ammo, ammo which can be refilled either at your checkpoint station or via picking up various ammo crates found in the levels. Later on you unlock a grenade also, with various properties (regular, incendiary, gravity and cluster). You also unlock the GUN MACHINE mode, where you can become invincible for 6-7 seconds after filling up an orange bar above your health bar, by killing monsters of course. While the Gun Machine mode is fun, you have no warning when you'll get out of that mode, so you really must shoot from a relative safe space so you won't find yourself in the middle of the enemy fire. But probably the most important mechanic of this game is the Dash. By pressing L1 you can do a short Dash that makes you invincible for the entire duration. This Dash has a cooldown, but if you press Dash at the finish of your previous one, you dash again, prolonging your invincibility. ...I ended up spamming L1 while shooting like crazy. That's how you finish 99% of the game by dashing and shooting nonstop. In the eventuality that you die, you can use cats to respawn. Yes, you heard that right, your lives are represented by white spectral cats. Maybe THAT'S why the game is called Wildcat, maybe I am a cat shaman with a laser gun. ...Yeah I have no clue why I use cats to respawn but sure. If you run out of cats, you lose a bit of your skeleton coins (again, why is that your currency idk, I didn't make the game) and all the rooms will reset. However if you run back to your checkpoint station you can replenish your cats...thus making this entire mechanic completely useless. The Gun Machine mode really is a lifesaver depending on situations The gameplay, while fun initially, gets old really quickly. There's no explanation why you're shooting...whatever you're shooting, you just shoot. From the entire set of weaponry, only...5-6 of them are actually decent, the rest can be thrown in the trash. The game itself gets super repetitive and soon your main target is to not fall asleep while pew pew ing the fleshies. The bosses are a major disappointment. Most bosses could be bypassed by just spamming dash around them and pelting them with bullets. Or you could sit in a corner of the screen, outside its range and just pelt him with your ammo. The bosses are particularly dumb in this instance and they serve only as a mild roadblock. A big exception is the final boss - he's VERY tough. But he is not simply buffed with HP and attacks, no, the main gimmick of this fight is that you lose al of your equipment and is given a pea shooter who switches the projectiles between light and dark. The Boss spits balls of various white/black color, so what you have to do is shift between realms to avoid damage. I have to say that I hate when games depower you at the end and just give you some sort of random ass weapon that ain't even as good as your normal ones. Depowering should be done at the beginning of a story, not at the end. What was the point of me struggling to get all the good weapons if I just end up losing them at the end?? And just when you beat him up...you get the game logo and that's , the end. No NG+, no possibility to use my money won after the last fight. What was even the purpose then The platinum is a slog. You'll definitely not be able to get all the money required for the weapons, so you will have to win ->die ->restart at checkpoint - cash in and continue over and over again. The weapons cost quite a bit so you will spend some time in one place farming for weapons you will never ever use. And since there is no way to level select, better abuse that cloud save. Anyway, this game is repetitive and makes little to no sense. It's best if you avoid this game altogether, There's so many better games out there. THE GOOD: Wildcat can be cute The shooting feels good THE BAD Why am I even shooting here? WHAT am I even shooting here? 0 story repetitive gameplay 0 motivation to play Recommendation: Curse of the Dead Gods a way better isometric roguelike
  13. Ah Farming Simulator...I did enough real life farming, no need to simulate the experience 😂 I might go for Lemon Cake or Hokko Life instead, will keep GTA for when I feel in a "mayhem" mood. Best of luck with Farming Simulator! May your crops be bountiful

  15. #No. 218 - Wildcat Gun Machine

     

    Well...this game sucked cat ass. This is a "bullet hell"-lite (is that even a genre?) where you play as ...this girl (I will dub her Wild Cat, she has no name) shooting alien meat monsters in an izometric space. Who are you and why you do that? Shut up, glue your finger on the R2 button and START SHOOTING!

    Game looks something like this:

     

    wildcat-mini-boss.jpg

     

    And really, you are simply thrown into the game, no explanation why are you doing all this. The most confusing part is when you die, you ...sacrifice a spectral cat to revive yourself. Getting back to the checkpoint obelisk resurrects the cats, which means your resurrection cats get replenished. I shit you not this is the game. There really seems like the devs threw in pure random crap in this game.

     

    Why I called this game Bullet-Hell lite? well because it's mad easy. In fact it's so easy that you will manage to finish the game before even getting to buy half of the weaponries that are offered in the store. Yes you can buy new weapons and new upgrades...but out of all of them, I'd say 90% of them are useless while the 10% are overpowered. 

    The game also gives you a dash that makes you invincible for 1 second. If you manage to correctly dash at the end of your previous dash, you can link the dashes and be invincible 2 seconds. Link one more and ... you get the point. I ended up spamming the dash button and the shooting button and simply obliterated the entire game, barely dying (except the final boss who is a severe ramp up in difficulty, your dash and weapons are removed).

    Thank god that I did a backup save because there are trophies that ask you to buy everything from the shop. Believe me you will have to die and reload from checkpoint a LOT in order to grind all the required currency for the useless weapons.

     

    Overall I would say that despite the "interesting " graphics (the only good point of the game), Wildcat Gun Machine just manages to waste one's time. Don't bother, play something better. I recommend Curse of the Dead Gods (not a bullet hell but it is a good game xD )

      Congrats on the plat, Copanele. ^^

      I thought this game might've been interesting with its whole "cat" thing going on, but it looks rather simple (reminds me of a cheap mobile game), and, from what you've summarized, its gameplay is rather dull too. Mmmm, not sure I'll get this one, but I may be open to trying it out for a very steep discount just because I like the genre.

       

      If you want more compelling twin-stick shooters, I'd recommend Housemarque's games, they're damn good. Two I can personally recommend myself are Dead Nation and Nex Machina. I know they have a whole slew of others but I haven't gotten to them yet.

       

      And yeah, the genre of pew-pew-pew games has a huge variety of sub-genres: you got shmups, danmaku (or bullet hell), run n' gun, isometric shooters, top-down shooters, twin-stick-shooters, on-rail shooters, space shooters, cute 'em ups. You can also divide them whether they're horizon or vertical scrolling. Anyways, there's quite a variety to how you get to do your pew-pew-pew is what I want to say. xxD

      @Honor_Hand yeah I really checked the genre now and my dear god there's a TON of them!

      I...think I'll steer clear from the genre, screens filled with pellets scare me for some reason xD

      Honor_Hand

      @Copanele Ooh, they can be quite scary, that's for sure. I'm playing one right now and it's just...too much, lol. No idea how some people can play these games and still know what's going on the screen. xxD

  16. My 50th Rarest plat is one of my favorite too Yakuza 0 Where it all began! - 4.48% As for my 100th (because why not) Granblue Fantasy Vs Platinum Sky - 10.39% ....ok forget about the 100th one 😂
  17. You can also mention them here after you finish the games in case you don't want to submit a list
  18. Heyo there! Yep it will still count, the condition is as usual, to have at least one unearned UR. Checking your list, it seems that the only trophy you can achieve there is My Kung Fu is Stronger which is UR. So yes, if you get that one done it will count for the event Shame that the online died unannounced like that...that would've been a great plat
  19. Any payday2 counts I will update the main post for more clarity.
  20. No. 217 - Dead or School Adding a bit of diversity with a non-fighting game Dead or School is...a very interesting game, in more than one way 😏 I got this game as a recommendation from @AihaLoveleaf (and his 5 star review) and I decided to fire it up since I wanted something braindead silly as a break from the punchy-kicky that has plagued my January this year. What I got was a jam packed 2D action/Hack&Slash with an actually catchy story and bountiful characters (as all anime based games should be 😌) Onto the premise - mankind was overrun with mutated zombies, so their only solution was to hide underground, under the Tokyo Subways. 78 years after the outbreak, a teenage girl named Hisako is entrusted a schoolgirl uniform by her grandmother (a survivor of the outbreak). With this new Armor that gives 0 protection and 999 bounciness, Hisako has one dream - to get rid of the zombies, allow humanity to return to the surface and go...to...school. Goddamnit Japan, your obsession with schools is unhealthy. Eh, whatever lets me shoot more zombos. Despite being a teenage girl, Hisako is a very capable fighter, able to slice and dice her way through hordes of enemies. She can double jump, use all kinds of weaponries and can tank hits that would be fatal for a normal human (the desire for school is really strong). All of this action happens in the subway stations of Tokyo, Hisako going from station to station, liberating them and unfolding the mystery behind the outbreak. This mystery has a pretty decent anime-like build up. You slowly discover that there's more than meets the katana and the plot doesn't lose momentum. Hisako is also helped by a wide array of characters that she either encounters or rescues on her travel. Unfortunately most of them are largely useless, they only act as support characters or "friends" and do not help Hisako in any way gameplay wise. Either way, they add a bit of color to the bleak zombie environment. Yurika is one of the few NPCs central to the plot. Also she has some interesting subquests 😏 The selling point of the game is the gameplay however. Dead or School is at its core a 2D Action/Hack&Slash with light Metroidvania and platforming influences. You go from room to room, clearing zombies, solving various puzzles which involves a ton of jumping and collect loot, the sweet loot, which is done really well in this game. Hisako can use 3 types of weapons: Melee weapons (katana swords, broadswords, chainsaws, buzzsaws, a guitar), machine guns (assault rifles, flamethrowers, laser guns) and launchers (grenade launchers, RPGs, particle cannons). You can improve them at various save points or augment them with parts that you find across the world, which offer bonuses like life, stamina, critical rate, critical damage, explosion on hit etc. The save points also have a rudimentary shop that sell you random loot that resets at certain points, however I found that the loot dropped from enemies is vastly superior to the garbage offered by the store. You can improve the weapons even further with the in-game skill tree : Whenever Hisako levels up from killing zombies ,you are given 1 skill point that you can allocate in the skill tree, which will improve one of your 3 weapon types. You must pick wisely which course you want to apply (or don't - Yurika can reset your skill tree free of charge) One final point is when Hisako gets damaged too much - her school uniform explodes (obviously) and she is left only in her shirt, which acts like a sort of "Devil trigger" - her offense and defense capabilities increase, however she is also usually one hit away from death. This special state can also be modified with augments for weapons, which only increase Hisako's destructive capabilities. Devil Trigger effect, featuring Hisako from Devil May Cry series It is recommended you improve your weapons at any point, because oh boy do the enemies hit HARD. The first 2 levels are pretty much a joke, but starting from level 3 the enemies can easily demolish you, if you play on Normal at least. The rooms get more and more diverse and you really must be on your toes when it comes to delivering damage. Every level has a Boss battle at the end, which are usually the best fights in the game. They are tough, they are challenging and they have sick soundtrack that gets your anime blood pumping. Expect a ton of explosions from every side of the map The game also features various platforming sections ...and those are hit or miss. Hisako's physics defying feats (and I mean jumping in this case) allow you to "cheat" , grabbing ledges that you should've missed normally. However some platforming sections can be infuriating because the game can have a mind of its own at times. One of the most annoying parts of the game is when you have to traverse some sewer water by travelling on debris which sinks after a period of time. That stupid jump-on-garbage section took me more tries than expected and it was one of the few moments where I got pissed at the game for being dumb. Of course, I am not a genius in platforming either so that didn't help much. In terms of trophies, the game is pretty straightforward - collect everything and solve every sidequest. Nothing is really missable since you can return to previous areas at any point and the grindy trophies (kill enemies with x weapons, gain x amount of money etc) can be easily done during your playthrough. Just like Ender Lilies, I am surprised that the game has such a high completion rate on PSNP, given that it's not the most EZPZ of the games out there (especially considering the final levels where it's gauntlet after gauntlet after platforming after gauntlet). But well, Hisako is a good enough character to worth the investment. But overall, this has been a nice investment. Got the game at a discount, which I also recommend to the people interested. Not a groundbreaking game by any means, but it's fun and can go ballistic at any point. It still didn't convince me to go to school though miss me with that knowledge stuff, had enough for a lifetime. THE GOOD: anime 😏 super strong gameplay fun looting system soundtrack is actually fire story ain't too bad either there's something fun about killing hordes of enemies and getting their weapons to kill even more enemies THE BAD: I am not missing the highschool life platforming sections can be a headache at times Hisako ain't the brightest girl out there Recommendation - Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knight a pure Metroidvania where your weapons are your summons. This one I recommend big time(don't be fooled by the completion rate either, game's difficult )
  21. Hallelujah... finished a game that's not red OR blue...it's maroon (i was lucky with it) Dead or School - anime, schoolgirls, zombies and chainsaw katanas. A nice combo between lollipop chainsaw and Serious Sam
  22. #217 - Dead or School

     

    The second weirdest game I've played this month, after Kill la Kill IF. This one is a 2D action/Hack&Slash with an underground dweller girl, Hisako, who fights zombies with the sole aim of freeing Japan and going to...school of all places. Horror indeed.

     

    Despite the simple plot, this game is actually pretty damn good! You have a wide array of weapons to use in battling the hordes of zombies : close range weapons (katanas, buzzsaws, chainsaws, a ...guitar), long range guns (machine guns, snipers, laser rifles) and heavy weaponry (rocket launchers and particle cannons). I'd say that the game really gets deep into looting and shooting, you having to match and augment weapons who best suit your playstyle. Add to this mix a pretty developed skill tree for each weapon type and you have a pretty fun action packed game.

    And you will have to really invest into weapons, because the enemies can get really challenging from the midpoint of the game onwards. A special mention to the bosses as well, they are well designed and can hit really hard if you decide to sit in one place.

     

    Even the plot fooled me at first. All I expected was just schoolgirls and guns and that's it. But no, there was actually a pretty detailed plot in the background, it even surprised me at some points. Nothing convoluted mind you, but the story was written well enough to keep me invested from start to finish. That and anime girls xD 

     

    Overall, this game is way better than you'd expect. While not breaking any gaming boundaries ,Dead or School is a fun way to pass the time shooting and zombies and megazords. 

    Japan won't let something as silly as a zombie outbreak to stop them from going to school 😂 that's determination!

      I can see the link, but still can't visit it unless I change my DNS to something else.

       

      Nevertheless, the "Great fireWall" is coming in a few years, so changing my DNS will no longer work. 😢

      Sweet! Nice completion here, Copanele! You sure had a blast playing this one. ^^

       

      I've had my sights set on this one for a while. Even before @AihaLoveleaf praised the game, I was already sold on it. But now that you two guys have gone through it with such a glowing opinion, well damn, I really need to get my hands on it at some point. I'll be sure to do so next time I see it on sale. =D

       

      As for the game itself, what can I say, the Japanese really love their school settings. xxD I know the motivation in this one is kinda silly, but come on, Hisako really wants to become a cute schoolgirl in the end. There's nothing wrong with that in my book. ;D Gameplay and soundtrack always looked kickass on this one. That and the premise of controlling a hot anime chick as she battles hordes of zombies and other monsters is more than enough to sell me to try this game. Here's hoping others can also give it a go, too! ^^

      @Honor_Hand it's a given that you will enjoy this game :D it has all it needs for a successful zombie shooting with schoolgirls xD I really am curious which loadout will you use in your playthrough! Me and Aiha used completely different weapons and I can confirm that every weapon is viable in this game, depending on the build!

      Yeah it just cracks me up how Hisako can go in the purest anime style while shooting some berzerk zombo who can't comprehend human speech "I will defeat you and achieve my DREAM to go to SCHOOOOOOOL". Maybe she heard of the legendary elite government system that is the student council in anime 😂

  23. Has no humans - Darksiders - the game happens during the Apocalypse, all humanity has been wiped out By an independent developer - SkyScrappers - Developed by Ground Shatter Has no platinum trophy[NEW] - Chaos Code - PS3 version is platinum free Has snacks - Dead or Alive 6 - this one is abit tricky, since it doesn't have a "Story related trophy", the closest story related trophies are the Arcade and DOA Quest modes. Snacks are available in Survival mode, they can heal you or give you extra points. With a # or Punctuation in the Title - Phatom Breaker: Omnia Based on a Non-Gaming IP - Kill la Kill: IF - Based on the crazy Kill la Kill anime. For Another PSNP Event - Street Fighter x Tekken - also used in The Ultra Rare Cleanup 2023 event.
  24. Street Fighter IV - Man, I've missed this game. The feel, the soundtrack, the combos, the characters...despite being 15(!!!)years old, this game holds up big time even today. 

    Fired up the original PS3 version for the plat difficulty challenge. I heard this version has way tougher trials than the Ultra SF4 version that I played + it has Survival & Score Attack mode. 

     

    All I can say is...Ryu Hard Trials done xD Man, these combos feel way more natural and "human" after going through the absolute nightmare that was Persona 4 Arena trials. I used to be scared of Guile, but after experiencing Mitsuru...yeah double flashes ain't shit now 😂

      Nope, I will leave her second-to-last, because I know I will get angry while going for her trial xD for now I will do the rest of the characters (then leave one trial for last e.g. M Bison so I can pop the platinum as a milestone :D )

      I think she can count as the hardest, because I have to do the 360 like my life depends on it.

      HOWEVER she's not the most awful to me. El Fuerte is (still). I HATE THAT CHARACTER!

       

      But at least I am done with Time Trials and Survival. Man they took a LOT of time.

      Yeah, El Fuerte sucks big time too. Did you have any problems with cammy during your survival/time trials runs?

    4. Copanele

      Copanele

      None whatsoever. The moment i saw her spamming cannon spikes i just blocked and lariated her ass. Also jumped over her Ultra and Lariat again.

      The only one that was a headache in Survival was...Dan...his Dan kicks had priority most of the time and he would randomly raw Ultra me 😂

      Also El Fuerte again, dashing around and belly slam me. But overall the modes were a complete joke xDJust took a lot of time

  25. I really didn't have time to reply here. Goddamn...uh...gaming Not gonna lie, I was abit nervous about this game. I loved playing it so I hyped it ...maybe abit too much, was afraid you wouldn't like it. Glad it wasn't the case The biggest shocker for me is that I enjoyed a platformer - the bane of my existence in videogames. Yet somehow this one was incredibly catchy and satisfying. You actually mentioned it best here: This game DOESN'T WASTE YOUR TIME! Everything you do has a purpose or leads towards a puzzle or a collectible. Also the first game where collectibles are essential to your gameplay - can't say I ever saw this kind of mechanic anywhere else. Swear, if I encountered a physical copy of this game I'd buy it in a heartbeat the devs should definitely do more of these types of games! To my shame...I can't say I know any of the other games that you played. Other than Norco, I'll check it out, please don't hunt us down 😂 (I should also fire up Voice of Cards Forsaken Maiden - don't forget to review that!)
