  1. So with it being 2020 I think it's time to finish up any online required trophies for PS3, so here is a list of games I have planned to finish hopefully over the first half of the year. 

     

    Far Cry 2

    Max Payne 3

    Inversion

    Painkiller

    Wolfenstein

    Resident Evil: ORC

    Dead Space 3

    Sniper Ghost Warrior

    Red Faction Armageddon

    Dragon Ball Raging Blast 1 and 2

     

    Im sure I've missed some but that's it for now, safe to say I'll be busy for a looking time...

      Best of luck! That's exactly what I did too before the end of 2019. It was fun and painful xD

      I wanna do Sniper Ghost Warrior 1 and 2, Ragnarok Odyssey, Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker, Red Faction Armageddon and maybe Dragon Ball Raging Blast 1 and 2, Resident Evil ORC. 

       

      But I seem to have misplaced my PS3, any idea where it is? :hmm:

      DS3 isn't bad.

  2. Double Plat today!  #31 - The Last of Us #32 - Dark Souls 2

    I've been slacking recently and I thought I'd kick my ass into high gear with these two! Gave a little more info on the Most Recent Platinum thread xD

  3. Plat #25 - Final Fantasy XIII

     

    So I was a little bit of a mad man today, woke up and just wanted to finish this up. Spent pretty much the whole day upgrading the rest of my weapons and doing the final missions. I personally think this game is great and people judge it a little to harshly. =)

      Congrats! I agree with your assessment. It's not the best granted but it's certainly not the worst. I quite enjoyed the whole trilogy actually. Any plans to play those?

      Absolute mad lad bursting thru to the end!  Nice work Kai. :yay:

  4. Plat #21 - Spec Ops: The Line

     

    Woo! 3 Plats almost in one day! xD Bloody hell that last chapter took awhile to do, but since I was so close to finishing it up I thought why not.

  5. Plat #20 - Bloodborne

     

    Well I not long finished up Batman but now that's moved over for Bloodborne. I love this game, that is all. xD 

  6. Plat #19 - Batman: Arkham Origins

     

    You know what? I liked this game, I don't love it and it had it's issues but I overall I enjoyed the ride. I was expecting this to be horrible by the amount of hate it got. Just shows you shouldn't listen to what everyone says and go with your own opinion.

  7. Need to vent this out a little bit so excuse the pointless status. 

     

    I woke up yesterday in a very productive mood, you know the one I'm talking about. Where you wake up and say to yourself "I have a fuck tone of games, let's work on that backlog!" I booted up Amazing Spider-Man on my PS3, not the best game but hey I enjoy it for what it is. After about 2-3 hours I'd say, the game crashes and will not get past a loading screen no matter how many times I reboot it. Little bit pissed but at the same time it was a second hand game what can I expect but still annoying I started it up and now I need to get myself a new copy to continue. I didn't let that get to me though "Okay well that idea is gone but I have plenty others" I pick God of War Ascension. Played it for a good while and then freezes and won't get past the loading screen. I'm panicking it's my PS3 at this point but other games work fine so it just so happens the two games I pick giving me the same problem. So now I need two new copies of game I already have to carry on! Safe to say my productive mood has gone down greatly now. xD

      @LucianaRosethornI know, why I keep you around for moments like this! xD Love you really. 

       

      @DaivRulesTrust me, I tried just about everything yesterday to avoid myself buying new copies, but in the end I just had to bite the bullet on it.

       

      @BlackSquirrell1I had to order mind online because my local doesn't have what I need sadly, but here's hoping I don't have any more problems...

      Well, good luck on continuing the game(s) and getting these wrapped up!

      Crazy. I very rarely have an issue with Blu-Rays. Had to return a Ratchet & Clank game that was scratched to hell, and an Onechanbara disc that had a crack in it.. But those are really all I can think of. 

  8. I have a little question for everyone here, what do you think of playing the same game but on different consoles for extra trophies, example would be RE5 on PS3 and PS4. I was always against it because you would be getting a extra Plat for the same game, but recently I've been thinking is that such a bad thing? I only would ever do it for a game series I actually enjoy and not do it again purely for trophies though. I would like other peoples insight on the matter. xD

      I’ve done it for Skyrim and Alien: Isolation cause I really loved the trophy experience. You could argue you could just do them on another account but I managed to get them pretty cheap. 

    3. DamagingRob

      DamagingRob

      @The Tick Other than trophies, a lot of the PS2-on-PS4 games had nothing of value added. But I see your point, if your PS2 no longer works. Mine bit the dust long ago, too. :/ But someone whose PS3 is busted could say the same.

       

      I really just prefer playing everything on the PS4, myself. Trophy screenshots, better controller, no long waits for trophies to sync, etc. But I still won't pay a lot for games I've already played. Many were free on Plus, or less than $5. 

    4. KaiserVendrix

      KaiserVendrix

      I don't think I'd ever rebuy a game just to do the trophies, I've had many accounts over the years and some of them have versions of games on other consoles. I wouldn't go ham with the idea, just a few games I have very good memories with that's all. 

  9. Plat #17 - Dragon Ball Z Budokai Collection

     

    Had a nice time replaying this, I played these games a bunch back when I was younger so the games was muscle memory at that point. Although I hated how they didn't put Budokai 2 in this "collection" I always loved that one more then 3.

  10. Finally finished the online portion of Binary Domain, would like to thank @SuperSkullJoe, @JESTERKING45 and @pot1414 for assisting me and each other on the journey that was the online grind for the game. We finished up the challenges rather quickly, it was Invasion that tested our patients. We had many attempts on Invasion, 2 of them we all died on the final wave. But we pulled though and beat it finally today! Now then, guess it's time to relax and enjoy the single player now. xD

      Nice going, Kai and friends. :D

  11. You know what I don't get? People deleting you after you've not long added them. Recently started talking to someone from here I won't say who but most people know him. We talked had a laugh and added each other, then I find out today I've been deleted on everyone and he's left the convoys we was having. I'm very confused when people who do this. Meh their loss I guess. 😒

      This has happened to me in the past. I've grown thicker skin since then, but people online can just flip the crazy switch at the drop of a hat. Best to just move on, and not worry about it. 

  12. Plat# 15 - Bioshock 2

     

    Hands down my favourite game in the series, everything that can could of been improved on from the original was. You know I always have quite a bit to say but always feel it's a little to much for a status post. Might start a trophy check list in the future. Let me know if anyone would care if I did. xD

      Well done! 💯

  13. [Days Gone] You know what? I’m not really feeling the game. Everything is feeling like a chore to do and no excitement in the gameplay, maybe I was expecting a little too much with the game? I dunno, I’ll give it a good run but so far it’s left a bad taste in my mouth.

      Pfft! I’m not even that far into the Plot yet, but I’m struggling to have fun in the gameplay. I’m sure the plot will get better hopefully but I’m also not in a rush to get there you get me? 

       

      I ended up resetting my playthrough because they added in survival mode, so I might as well get everything done on that mode right? xD

    3. ResoluteRock

      If you don’t like the gameplay, I don’t think there’s much of a chance of redemption. Some of it might just be acclimation; for instance, I really didn’t like the driving in the game and it instantly became something I disliked. Now, about 15 hours later, I appreciate the driving mechanics and really enjoy it now.

       

      Also, you do get some fun perks that can make gameplay more interesting. For example, I just unlocked a running melee perk that lets me knock down an enemy with my melee weapon as I charge them

      I went into it without high expectations. It wasn't high on my list but got it about half off. The story does start slow but it does pick up. Yeah there a lot of side quest and other objectives to do but the more I have played it I am enjoying it more. I'm getting close to the plat and having a blast taking out the hordes.

       

      I always thought of the gameplay as a combination of Far Cry and The Last of Us. Hope you end up liking it. It has really grabbed me as I have invested more time into it.

  14. I have a double Plat update today!

     

    Plat #12 Fallout 3 & Plat #13 Tekken Tag tournament

     

    First off, Fallout 3. I fucking love this game! I played it so much when I was younger and it’s amazing how much I remember after all theses years. It maybe a buggy mess but even then I can look past all that from how much joy it gives me. 

     

    Tekken Tag Tournament! I played his a bunch back in the day, I’ve never been good at fighting games but Tekken always was still very much played by me. Hopefully I’ll be good enough to tackle the later instalments soon. 😁

      @PooPooBlast Well if you’d like I could send you my copy? Just give me some money for shipping and it’s yours. =)

  15. Plat #11 Resident Evil 2

    This one I had sitting on my account for awhile and just didn’t feel like finishing up the DLC because of how much it angered me. xD But once I finally got past it I thought “why not” and finally finished it. =)

      Well done! 💯

  16. Plat# 10 - The Evil Within

     

    Very likely my second favourite game of all time! Akumu didn't seem as bad this time around as all the other times I've played it on past accounts. Nice to finally finish this game up, onto the next!

  17. Plat# 9 - Final Fantasy XV

     

    After 6 months, I’ve finally have 100% in this game. Overall it’s a decent game to a point, but never felt like a Final Fantasy. It was clearly unfinished when it came out and I hope Square uses at as a lesson not to force out a game that clearly wasn’t ready. 

  18. Got myself Days Gone and Sekiro today! Traded a bunch of old PS2/PS3 game and basically got one of the games for free. Now to wait about a hour for the patches to install before I can play anything! Gotta love how games are currently. -_-

      I rather keep them, than give to Gamestop for $1 a game... or less :P
      But if you could let go of the loss, both awesome games!! 👍

  19. I honestly wish I could slap some people on this site, seeing threads about a game not having a Platinum and seeing people complaining and saying they won’t buy/play it purely based on that fact alone is infuriating to me.

      I don't know why everyone gets all "up in arms" over every little thing here. Trophies are what made me kick my Xbox 360 to the curb, and start buying games exclusively on PlayStation systems. And Platinums are a large part of it. It's that extra "reward" for completing a game. If I just wanted achievements, I'd go play on Steam or Xbox. 

       

      And sure, I played and enjoyed games before trophies. If they ever went away, I'm sure I'd keep playing. But I have no problem not buying a game without a Plat, or at least waiting for a deep sale on it. There are way more than enough games with Plats I can spend my money on.

      No plat no buy has existed for a while. Yes, it’s dumb.

  20. So I got myself Super Meat Boy today... I’m pretty sure the Plat will murder me. xD

      @KaiserVendrix Too bad. I’ll keep it in my backlog then.

      You can totally do it if you are persistance.

      I mean persistant.

      Just remember, meat boy wants to fly. Hold that sprint button and to fast. You'll have to do it to finish the later levels, might as well practice like that from the start.

  21. Am I the only one who thinks using the word “retire” for a hobby that is trophy hunting rather silly?

      It’s not silly to the people how take it seriously

      @TheYuriG described it better than I did. 

      That's basically what I tried to say

    4. Midnightwards666

      Midnightwards666

      Interesting debate. At my level, it's purely enjoyment and retiring simply isn't the correct term. However, if I was to start taking it far more seriously and eventually felt a need to stop... the term would probably be very appropriate. It wouldn't be silly of me to retire - the silliness starts long before then. It would be silly of me to take trophy hunting so seriously that it starts having that effect on my mental health that makes me feel like I want to "retire". However, if I was doing it professionally, that would be another matter still, and it wouldn't be wrong to push through the occasional burnout. 

  22. Plat #8 - Resident Evil.

     

    Bloody hell that a lovely journey! I could not put it down even after 5 playthroughs. :)

  23. [Resident Evil] I’d say I’m making quite good progress, I’ve almost finished my invisible enemy playthrough. Been blitzing through it! xD

      Itchy, Tasty....

  24. Plat#7 - Marvel's Spider-Man

     

    Easy the best Spider-Man game in years, you can clearly see the time and effort they put into this game. I do think it was a little over hyped though, but it was a great journey to take. :) 

  25. Plat #6 - Demon’s Souls. 

     

    Quite happy with with how my playthrough went, I didn’t farm all that long for Pure Bladestone and I had a blast playing though the whole thing! Now onto Bloodborne as the next souls-like game I’ll be investing in. :awesome:
