  1. So I'm getting the family a PSVR for Christmas and wanted to ask you if you there's any games you recommend for VR. Both what have you played that's fun and how doable are the Platinum trophies? (Is VR Worlds as hard as the .3% plat rate suggests, or are VR games just completed less often on average?)
  2. Update 8 Games started (start ---> current) (95--->110) (+15 from start of year) Games completed (start ---> current) (57--->80) (+23 from start of year) Platinum Trophies (start ---> current) (47--->69) (+22 from start of year) Completion percentage (start ---> current) 67.07% --> 77.79% (+10.72% from start of year) Goal: 75% ---- (+2.79% over original goal) Updated Goal: 80% ---- (2.21% to reach revised goal) I'm trying to update a little more often so I don't have such a mountain of text to write each time. Maybe it'll be more readable. It's definitely more typable! I got my unearned trophies to below 900 this week! (currently 899) I've been trying to get there for a long time. Games this last week: Batman: The Enemy Within (PS4) 100% Finished going through this one. It was alright. I think I liked the first TellTale season better, but this one wasn't bad. It left on a cliffhanger, so I think TellTale must've been planning a third season, too bad they went under. Resogun (PS4) 69% total progress, Plat achieved. I've been making my way through Resogun. It's so much fun, but really challenging for me. I may have given myself arthritis from stressfully gripping the controller this week as I played. I managed to get the platinum and felt very proud of myself. Then I started on the first DLC and boy are there some tough (for me) trophies in there. After hours and hours of practice I managed to beat a level (the first one) on Master without using any special abilities. I did the trophy for playing through Arcade mode in co-op without anyone losing a life. I had thought that one would be tough, but my son and I got through it on our first try. You only have to do it on Beginner difficulty, and after all the hours of practice on the harder difficulties it was pretty effortless. I had been dreading the trophy for beating the final level on Veteran with a custom ship with all abilities set to zero. I figured I'd practice for a week, and then give up. Then I decided to try it in co-op and see if the trophy is still valid... turns out it is! I had my son play a normal ship, and I played the nerfed ship. Only took two tries to beat the level, and then the trophy popped! Up Next: - Keep working on Resogun. Hopefully I can get through most of the rest of the DLC's this week. I may be able to pull off the 100% on this game - something I'd given up on long ago as I didn't think I could do it. Congrats to everyone on your progress! Happy trophy hunting everyone!
  3. Update 7 Games started at beginning: 95 Games completed at beginning: 57 Platinum Trophies at beginning: 47 Current games started: 110 (+15 from start) Current games completed: 79 (+22 from start) Current Platinum Trophies: 67 (+20 from start) Completion percentage at beginning: 67.07% Completion percentage last update: 75.67% Current completion percentage: 77.03% (+1.36% from last update..... +9.96% total) Goal: 75% ---- (+2.03% over original goal) Updated Goal: 80% ---- (2.97% to reach revised goal) I feel like my completion percentage has been running on a treadmill a bit the last few months. Five of the games I had already completed to 100% (Godfall, Maneater, Dirt 5, Tools Up! and Outer Wilds) released new DLC's and dropped my completion percentage and number of games completed. I got to some of them but i'll have to get to the others later. Games since last update: Gris (PS4) 100% Finished this up with the platinum. It was an enjoyable relaxing game with an easy platinum. Tools Up! (PS4) DLC #3 100% Finished the 3rd and final DLC on this one. I really like this game and if you like Overcooked this is a good time, especially in couch co-op. Immortals Fenyx Rising (PS5) 100% Started and completed this one including all of the DLCs. It was a lot of hours for everything (75) and I was definitely ready for it to be done by the time I finished it. I did actually really enjoy it overall though. It is a fun game and the platinum is straight forward. I probably wouldn't have felt so burned out if I hadn't plowed through the whole game and all three DLCs back to back. The DLC in this game is actually really good. The first one is a little tiresome (just puzzle dungeons back to back with nothing really to breath them up) but the other two are great. The second DLC is basically a mini sequel to the game with a different character in Chinese mythology instead of Greek mythology. The third is back in Greek mythology and continues the story of the main game but is played from a different perspective with a new character and feels like a totally different game. I definitely recommend this one. It goes on sale a lot so watch for one and maybe space out the DLCs so you don't get burned out like me. Dirt 5 (PS5) DLC #4 100% Knocked this out in an afternoon fun a straight forward arcade racing. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (PS5) 100% I really enjoyed this. It was a fun quick story driven action adventure. Not much else to say about it. Was a nice change of a 14 hour platinum from the 75 I had just spent with Immortals. Batman: The Enemy Within (PS4) 60% Felt like watching a movie instead of playing a game so I started a Telltale game =P Just enjoying going through the story, should finish it this weekend. Resogun (PS4) 44% I started this a long time ago and only played a couple hours. I've played a lot this week and love it. I've finished all of the main game trophies except the hard stuff. I need to beat level 5 on veteran, then beat any level on master. I also need to do the full arcade playthrough on experienced without losing all my lives. Then I'll start looking at the DLCs. Any tips from anyone on Resogun? I can consistently get to around 50-75 percent through level 5 on veteran, but after several hours that's all I can manage. Any gameplay pointers? Just practice? Edit: Nvm, I just managed it, the Resogun platinum is mine! Now on to the DLC trophies, which I understand can be brutal... Up Next: - Finish Batman - Work on Resogun (I have a feeling it's going to take a lot of practice for the 100% on this one) Thanks for reading if you got through my wall of text! Congrats to everyone on your progress! Happy trophy hunting everyone!
  4. Wow, respect for that! What an achievement! (Or trophy I guess) Congrats, you must be so relieved to have that done.
  5. Update 6 July 23, 2021 Games started at beginning: 95 Games completed at beginning: 57 Platinum Trophies at beginning: 47 Current games started: 108 (+13 from start) Current games completed: 78 (+21 from start) Current Platinum Trophies: 64 (+17 from start) Completion percentage at beginning: 67.07% Completion percentage last update: 73.99% Current completion percentage: 75.67% (+1.68% from last update..... +8.60% total) Goal: 75% ---- (+0.67% over original goal) Updated Goal: 80% ---- (4.33% to reach revised goal) Life's been busy so I've neglected to report here for over three months now! I have been gaming though! I reached my original goal so I've revised to 80%. Here's my report: Games since last update: Tiny Troopers (PS4) This was a PS Plus game years ago that I played for 10 minutes, got a couple trophies and deleted. I went back and finished it off to clean up my back log. It's a really simple twin sticks shooter that filled a need of playing a game where I could just zone out and not think and mindlessly shoot for a while. I was thinking it would be a bit challenging with a 4% completion percentage, but it was really very easy. Not sure why the percentage is so low. (no plat on this game) LEGO Marvel's Avengers (PS4) I started this to play with my wife, got a couple trophies and haven't touched it for a couple months. I'll eventually get back to it, but for the meanwhile it added 75 unearned trophies to my list. Subnautica: Below Zero (PS5) The original Subnautica is arguably my favorite game of the last 5 years if not longer, so it was one of the rare occasions where I pre-ordered it and dropped everything to play immediately upon release. It's great. Not as good as the original IMHO, but still a great time. Finished the platinum on this one right away. Typoman (PS4) This is another one I had started years ago and I decided to go back and finish it. It's a clever and unique puzzle platformer that should really get more attention. The plat is not too hard. There is just one trophy for finishing something like 150 (memory might be off here) rounds of a mini game that really is only interesting for maybe 5 rounds. It's tedious and took forever to complete. Oh the things I do for my OCD need to finish what I've started. (I'm sure no one here could relate to that) Return of the Obra Dinn (PS4) This is an indie first person detective/puzzle game that I've been meaning to get to for a long time. The art style is fascinating and the story really didn't go where I was expecting in a really good way. It's short but will make you use your brain quite a bit. I really loved it and would recommend it. Plat is simple and easy. Godfall (PS5) You know, this game gets a lot of hate, but after completing it and earning the plat, I really don't understand why. Sure it's not the best game ever made, but certainly not the steaming turd that many have painted it out to be. The meat of the game is after you finish the admittedly short and plain story and go for the post game challenges, namely the Ascended Tower of Trials. I've seen the combat described as shallow, but honestly, if you dig into it, there are so many very different and very viable builds and ways to play. I loved finding different builds and trying them out and hunting for the right gear and enchantments. For the first time in a very long time I continued to play a game after finishing the plat off just because I was having so much fun seeing how well different builds would work. Again I totally understand if it's not people's thing, but I totally don't understand the hate. Anyways, I recommend it, especially if you can convince a friend to go on endgame missions with you. I've really had a ton of fun with Godfall. Tools Up! (PS4) Even more DLC was released and once again made me re-download and finish again. Right now there's yet another DLC trophy list showing up, but the DLC it is for has not yet released. I'll get to it when it does. Cars 2 (PS3) A surprisingly competent kart racer I played with my son many years ago. I finally got around to finishing off the platinum. It now holds the record for most time to completions. (8 years 6 months!) Kona (PS4) Another indie first person detective/horror lite game. It's fun and worth playing through, though I'd say wait and pick it up on sale if you are interested. Platinum is simple, just requires a guide for the collectibles unless you're crazy and do that sort of thing blind. Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor (PS4) I played this at release and mostly completed on steam previously, but on a whim decided to re complete is on playstation. It's a great game and the plat isn't bad at all. A couple of the DLC trophies require a bit of practice, but nothing crazy. Just finished the 100% yesterday. Dirt 5 (PS5) I had the platinum on this one but they dropped three DLC's over the last few months which I've just gone gone back and completed to get my percentage back up to 100. I have really enjoyed this after not really playing racing games beyond the occasional Mario Kart for a long time. Gris (PS4) I've been meaning to get to this for quite some time as it was very critically acclaimed. I'm almost done with the story and then need to go back and clean up collectibles. It's alright but not blowing me away like the hype said it might. It feels like they are trying to convey something deep with the game, but I don't get it. Maybe I'm just shallow =P Up Next: - Finish Gris - Start Immortals: Fenyx Rising Thanks for reading if you got through my wall of text! Congrats to everyone on your progress! Happy trophy hunting everyone!
  6. Thanks so much for taking the time give me some info, that really helps!
  7. Update 5 April 13, 2021 Games started at beginning: 95 Games completed at beginning: 57 Platinum Trophies at beginning: 47 Current games started: 102 (+7 from start) Current games completed: 71 (+14 from start) Current Platinum Trophies: 57) (+9 from start) Completion percentage at beginning: 67.07% Completion percentage last update: 72.69% Current completion percentage: 73.99% (+1.30% from last update..... +6.92% total) Goal: 75% ---- (1.01% left to goal) Games since last update: Destruction Allstars (PS5) Still just one trophy left. I've tried to find games most every night for the last few weeks and most of the time I fail to find a game. This game is sadly already dead it seems. Strangely, although I live in the US and have been on the US Central server since the game began, for some reason the game now has me on the Europe server and won't let me change it. This also coincides with the last few weeks of not being able to get into a match. Dungeon Defenders II (PS4) I played this about three years ago and got one trophy. On a whim these last few weeks I redownloaded it and cleared this out 100%. I figured I should get it done since it's an online only game and didn't want to find out one day that the servers are shut down and it's forever stuck as a 1% game on my profile. It really didn't take very long (10ish hours) and stayed enjoyable for those 10 hours. I played the first dungeon defenders a ton on steam years and years ago and think the original is better, but this one is still fun. It's not hard either so I'm not sure why the 100% completion rate is so low. (about 4.21% as I write this). Dirt 5 (PS5) After saying last update that this one would be on the back burner as I couldn't get into it enough to make it the main game I'm playing, I actually really got into the swing of things and completed the platinum, then purchased and completed the two DLC's that were released. I think that the difference was that I quit trying to control the game as if it were Mario Kart (which is how I approach most racing games... which is probably why I'm so bad at most of them). I acknowledged that the button to brake existed and started using it. After that things were quite a bit smoother! Who knew!? Spirit of the North (PS5) Started and completed the platinum for this one. It's short and sweet and fun while it lasts. The soundtrack is fantastic and fit the game perfectly. Up next: - I'll probably continue trying to get into games of Destruction Allstars just for the sake of trying.... but at this point I've pretty much given up hope. - I started Godfall this week and will probably focus mainly on that for a while. I'm enjoying myself so far. The story is pretty "meh" so far, but I do enjoy the gameplay so far. Also, I wanted to ask some opinions. I'm looking back through my previously started backlog and thinking about going for one of my more difficult games that I only have a few trophies in. The games I'm considering are: Jamestown+ Downwell Titan Souls Hyper Void Tiny Troopers Joint Ops Resogun Of those does anyone have any thoughts which one might be the most doable? Also, are the DLC's for Resogun as difficult as the completion percentage suggests, or is it just low because not many people got the DLC's? Any input would be greatly appreciated. I won't start it for a while - probably a few months until I've cleared other stuff off my plate and I'm ready to dive in, but I just was started to plan ahead. Thanks in advance! Happy trophy hunting everyone!
  8. I'm 100% with you. I had all the other trophies weeks ago. No Escape feels like it's impossible not because I can't get into the right situation on gridfall to do it, but because every time I do, people do exactly what you described and purposefully kill themselves, or hang out in the lobby. It seems to be getting harder and harder to find a game lately (at least when I'm playing) which makes me worry that the game is going to die off before I can pull it off. I'm close to resigning myself to let this one stay at 97% forever. It seems like at least 4-5 people manage it everyday, so it is possible...It's just really discouraging when you see people blocking you from doing it on purpose for no other reason than to grief you. I do enjoy this game in general though. It's a game I enjoy just picking up for a few rounds here and there.
  9. I just did this last week and it worked for me. If I remember correctly, I think that after the credits are done and it puts you back into the hub world you need to run around (or slither or whatever it is that phogs do to get around) the hub area and wake up 3 or 4 different other phogs. I don't remember if you have to do anything to wake them up other then just go up to them, but it'll be pretty self explanatory if I remember right. Hope that helps!
  10. Update 4 March 20, 2021 Games started at beginning: 95 Games completed at beginning: 57 Platinum Trophies at beginning: 47 Current games started: 102 (+7 from start) Current games completed: 68 (+11 from start) Current Platinum Trophies: 55) (+8 from start) Completion percentage at beginning: 67.07% Completion percentage last update: 69.78% Current completion percentage: 72.69% (+2.91% from last update..... +5.62% total) Goal: 75% Games since last update: Planet Coaster (PS5) Finished the platinum on this one. It's a lot of fun, and a nice change of pace from the games I typically would play. Phogs (PS4) I finished the platinum on this one too. It can be played entirely single player, but is quite obviously supposed to be a co-op experience. Sadly, I probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone. There are really some good ideas here, but the controls can be absolutely infuriating, and I was constantly getting stuck in the environment. I only finished it off because I didn't want it mess up my completion % and it really wasn't too hard to finish. Destruction Allstars (PS5) After probably 10 hours trying to get Boxtop's and TwinkleR10t's trophies, I lucked out and got them each in back to back matches - which was really exciting. I'm down to just one trophy to go. I need to wreck the entire other team in one match with Ratu's hero car's special attack. I've tried a ton but no luck so far. There's some pretty well documented problems with this one - including people being able to keep you from getting it by simply staying in the lobby if they are eliminated. I know that it's possible - around 5 people it seems are getting it every day still - but I don't know if I'll ever manage it. Half the time I queue up for a match I'm unable to find one. I think they just need to downgrade some of the settings and get this working on PS4 as well so that there is a better player base. I'll keep trying here and there, but I'm afraid this one may end up being and eternal 97% complete =( Last Day of June (PS4) This one was completed 100%. A quick indie story driven game with cool time travel cause and effect gameplay where you can play through the events of a day as 4 different characters trying to change the outcome of that day. What you do as one player changes what is possible if you switch over to another character. So you are replaying the day switching back and forth between the characters after each run trying to get everything to work out just right. It's cool without being overly complicated and can be completed in 4-6 hours tops. I really enjoyed it although it is a bit of an emotional gut punch. There's not platinum (just 21 bronze trophies) but I felt very much worth the playthrough. The Last Campfire (PS4) I got the platinum on this as well. It's a short, simple, cute and well done indie game with light puzzle and exploration elements. Maquette (PS5) Another short puzzle game I got the plat on. Very cool recursive mechanics that were really well implemented and didn't outstay it's welcome. 4-5 hours total. Dirt 5 (PS5) I'm slowly making my way through this. I enjoy racing games, but only in short bursts. It will probably be something I only play a couple hours a week for a month or two until i eventually finish it. I don't think I'll be able to make it my main game - it'll just be a side game - but it is fun and I'm enjoying my time with it. Outer Wilds (PS4) I completed this game and man was it a great experience! The year it came out it made a lot of the lists as contenders for game of the year in a lot of places and now I know why! The exploration was always interesting and I loved finding clues throughout the game and trying to piece together what was going on and following the bread crumb trails to completion. I absolutely would recommend this to anyone. The less you know the better. The game doesn't give you too much direction, you are expected to find your own direction from the clues that you find. There is a great "rumor map" that the game keeps up for you so that you can look through all the clues you've gotten previously so that you don't have to keep everything in memory. If you like a good mystery and enjoy exploring and putting clues together. definitely check this one out. As a side note, the trophy "Hotshot" for manually landing on a research station orbiting the sun was one of the most fun I've had going for a trophy. Trying to get on that station while you battle getting too close to the Sun and getting sucked in, or too far out and getting flung out into space while the roar of the sun fills your ears and you're flying super fast hanging on by the skin of your teeth... Man. It was such a rush and I loved it even though it took quite a bit of practice to get it right. Up next: - Keep trying a couple times a day to finish off Destruction Allstars. - Chip away at Dirt 5 here and there. - I'm not sure what will be my next "main" game. I'm thinking of either starting Godfall or Immortals: Fenyx Rising. Or like what usually happens is I'll decide at the last minute to do something totally different =P Happy trophy hunting everyone!
  11. Oh I'll try to maximize the casualties for sure haha!
  12. Update 1 - January 12 Update 2 - February 2 Update 3 February 20, 2021 Games started at beginning: 95 Games completed at beginning: 57 Platinum Trophies at beginning: 47 Current games started: 98 (+3 from start) Current games completed: 62 (+5 from start) Current Platinum Trophies: 50) (+3 from start) Completion percentage at beginning: 67.07% Completion percentage last update: 68.34% Current completion percentage: 69.78% (+1.44% from last update..... 2.71% total) Goal: 75% Games since last update: Resident Evil HD (PS4) 50th platinum obtained! I really enjoyed my time with it. I ended up completing it in 5 playthroughs. I know I could've been more efficient but I was enjoying myself and didn't mind the extra playthrough. I really enjoyed how by the time I got the platinum I knew the route through the game like the back of my hand and could finish a playthrough in 3 hours without really trying. My first playthrough was 16 hours to give that context. I would've thought that playing through it 5 times in a short time would get tedious, but for whatever reason it remained fun throughout. Planet Coaster (PS5) Slowing making my way through the career mode and I am really enjoying this. It's a low stress fun way to relax compared to other games I've played. Inly 4 more career missions to go before I complete the few requirements in challenge mode (not sure what that entails yet). Then I'll finish the plat off with the trophy for causing a roller coaster accident involving 300 guests, should be fun!! Phogs (PS4) No movement here. My daughter hasn't felt like playing this week. Tools Up! (PS4) Finished off the post-platinum trophies with my son this last week in time attack mode. This was a really fun little game. It's basically Overcooked, but you are contractors instead of chefs. It's got a little more jank and less polish than Overcooked, but for whatever reason I enjoy this one more. Check it out if you are looking for some fun couch co-op with a friend. Donut County (PS4) I had fun playing through this quirky little adventure. I did it to get a fast platinum done so that Resident Evil could be my 50th plat. Pick it up on sale if you're interested in it, it's only 1-2 hours of playtime to plat. Destruction Allstars (PS5) I've actually had a lot of fun with this game. I'm getting close to completion with 13/16 of the character specific trophies completed and 44/50 wins done. The 3 character challenge trophies left are going to be a pain though (Boxtop, Ratu, and Twinkle Riot left to do). I've probably spent 8ish hours alone already trying to get Boxtop's trophy. I'll continue playing a few matches everyday and eventually I should get this. Up next: - Continue through Planet Coaster. I should be able to wrap this up this week. - Continue Destruction Allstars. I'm close, but the few remaining trophies may take a while. - Phogs here and there with my daughter. - I might start a Lego game with my wife, maybe one of the Marvel ones. Happy trophy hunting everyone!
  13. I meant to quote and hide my first update just above, then have my 2nd update visible. Somehow I've hidden everything and can't figure out how to fix it. Sorry about that, I'm a forum n00b!
  14. I'll definitely check those out after I've played through with each character and scratched the nostalgia itch. Thanks so much for pointing those out to me!
