  1. Platinum #149 & 100% #184 - The Wolf Among Us (PS Vita). It’s the first time in 300+ games that I platinumed a game that I’d already played once before on a different console (PS3). Ended up being 1 trophy away from doing it in PSASBR (PS3 and PS Vita), but they closed the online servers.

      I was also in the dark about PSASBR servers being closed too. Can anyone else confirm that?

      Nice work! 

  2. :platinum: #160 & 100% #196 - Ratchet & Clank PS4. Burnout caused me to stop playing and eventually sell the game, while 3 trophies short of the platinum, more than 2 years ago. I just found it for $5 and thought I'd finally revisit it and finish it off. :)

  3. :platinum: #156 - Fallout 4. Usual Bethesda re-skin. No way in hell I’m paying $65 for the season pass. The industry’s perpetual greed tells me I’m done buying all games’ DLC now.

      Nice work! I just keep waiting for the GoTY edition to drop to an acceptable price. 

  4. :platinum: #150 and 100% #185 - Rocket League.$34 for the GOTY, but was worth it. Great game to get into. Love the physics and the soundtrack. Lot of douchebags online, though.

  5. Platinum #154 and 100% #188 - Fallout Shelter. 180hrs and not a penny spent. Took about a week to finally go from 19 to 20 Legendary outfits. Then got the 21st 10 seconds later. :| 

  6. :platinum: #152 - Assassin’s Creed: Unity. Everything’s been patched. It’s one of the better AC games. My second AC platinum in 5 days. Only Origins left for the full catalogue 100%. 👍🏼

      Nice work! I also enjoyed Unity a lot.

      My first AC game will be AC 3 and I'll start it soon :D 

  7. :platinum: #153 - Assassin’s Creed: Origins. Weak story, oversimplified combat, and repetitive missions make it one of the lesser AC games. My first plat in a year. :) 

  8. :platinum: #162 & 100% #198 - LEGO Ninjago Movie: The Videogame. Out of the 16 LEGO games I've played, this is easily one of the lesser instalments, but you just can't beat the price of "free."

      There's at least 16 lego games?  I figured there were a lot but that's a lot.  Congratulations! :D

      @Froopy the Cowbear I think there's actually something like 50 LEGO games.

      @effdeegee Clearly I was wrong.  Now that is a lot.  Wow.  No wonder there wasn't a collection for them xD 

  9. :platinum: #158 - Marvel's Spider-Man. Good game, but the side content felt slightly padded. I've got the GOTY, so it should end up like Horizon Zero Dawn, where I do all DLC except for NG+ and leave it 2 trophies short of the 100% (for now).

  10. Save file just corrupted in The Witcher III. The fun just keeps on going... :facepalm:

      It was a very simple fix, but still very annoying. If you're wondering what to do if/when this happens to you, know that it's the autosave file that corrupts. To remedy, make a new manual save, close the game, go to system settings and delete the corrupted file, then open the game and load the manual save.

       

      One of the reasons why all of these technical issues (audio cutting out, getting a prompt to say corrupted save every 60sec, etc.) are so infuriating is that they happen during plot-heavy, main story missions and cutscenes.

       

      Another is that it's been happening across all platforms, for 5 years, and they still don't fix it. It's like they made a billion dollars, got a tv spinoff, then said "Fuck you. Got mine." and left their unfinished mess for the consumers.

       

      The worst thing is the hype machine. People that called this the GOTY, or best game ever made, are much too forgiving. I expect better from devs. I'd rather play a mediocre game that functions properly, than a massive AAA title that's riddled with bugs.

      i hope you didn't lose much. i had corrupted saves before but thankfully nothing lost more than a few hours of progress.

      As for people calling it game of the year and stuff, like I said before, the vanilla version was pretty flawless. Even with all the dlc it still worked great. Something happened in that complete edition though and their team had already moved on to the next project. People call it GOTY based on the version that came out that year, not the buggy mess that was the complete edition.

       

      Also, they didn't get a tv show spin off. The games are based on a series of books. The author got a tv show spin off. CDProjektRed has nothing to do with that.

  11. :platinum: #164 - Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. 85hrs of "meh." I'm renaming Origins and Odyssey as "O O," as in, "Oh Oh! Assassin's Creed isn't Assassin's Creed anymore." There wasn't even a hidden blade in this one. :blink:
     

    I still managed to score :silver: #2,500 and PSN Level 41. :)

      There was a hidden blade. It just didn't belong to Alexios/Kassandra. Darius invented it and utilized it. You have to download the DLC and play it to learn the origins of the hidden blade.

      @XchocomanX Full blown RPG, and there seems to be a heavier focus on microtransactions and splitting up DLC.

      @effdeegee Eeew. Sounds horrible D:

  12. 100% #191 - Minefield. I was always a fan of Minesweeper. This game froze twice in 20min, and there's a couple of grammatical errors in the trophy list, but it's pretty good, considering it's free, easy, and has :gold: 1 - :silver: 5 - :bronze: 5.

  13. Trophy #9,500 - Fallout Shelter. Just stumbled across this and saw it was free and had a platinum. Times sure have changed.

  14. :platinum: #159 & 100% #194 - God of War (2018). Absolutely loved it. Camera's a pinch tight, but that's the only less-than-minor issue with the entire offering.

  15. Just passed 200 hours in Skyrim (PS3). This game has consumed my life. 40/50 main game trophies. gogogo platinum & 100%! :)

      Just looked at my stats and looks like I only played for 155 hours. :D Thought I played for many more hours.

      I'll probably hit 300 hours before I finish the main game and platinum. Then comes the dlc. I hear they're amazing. :)

      They are great indeed. 👍 Never got to play them, because I still have a backlog to take care of. Good thing it's not that huge. :D 

  16. 100% #192 - AdVenture Capitalist. The grind is real. It's a shame that it was a digital game, because I would've greatly enjoyed microwaving the disc. OMFG DELEEETE.

  17. Platinum #147 - Skyrim (PS3). Save file says 252 hours (99% of which came in the last month), but that doesn't include lost time from the 15-20 freezes. I also didn't do several, large portions of the game, or start the dlc (yet). The platinum was trophy #8,800, and my first since January (College and work take up all of my time). Easily one of the best video games ever made. :) 

  18. :platinum: #148 and 100% #183 - Batman (TellTale). One of the better TT games. Had to play the 5th episode twice because it glitched on me. :jaymon:

      Congrats! I had to play the 5th episode twice too. Crashed while saving so it got corrupted and had to replay with none of my choices.

      Ah man, glitches are the worst.  Nice going tho!  Congrats. :D

      Ah I see. Got confused because you said getting platinum and the 100%.

    4. DamagingRob

      Congrats! Kinda wish I'd bought it on PS3, at the rate DLC is coming out for the PS4 version... $3 game turns into $18 game, if I decided to buy what's currently available. :/ 

  20. :platinum: #151 - Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate. One of the better AC games. Can’t wait to buy the Jack the Ripper dlc.

      I need to get on that game myself.

       

      Is it fairly easy? I remember playing it for a few hours and found the beginning sections to be real easy to finish.

      Well done! 💯

  21. Today marks the 5-year anniversary of my joining PSNP. :) 

  22. Trophy #9,600 - Fallout Shelter.

    100% #186 (again) - Rocket League.

  23. 100% #190 - Flower (PS4). After a few tries, I couldn't get the Pure trophy to unlock, so I stopped playing it. I tried again 6 months later and it was still buggy. Today, 7 months after the last attempt, I figured I'd give it another try and it unlocked on my first attempt. aaaaaaand delete. :) 

  24. :platinum: #157 - Horizon Zero Dawn. It was a pretty good 94hr game. I found the Complete Edition for $20, and the 77 of 79 trophies look good on the profile. I won't be going for the 100% anytime soon because multiple playthroughs aren't my thing anymore.
