Ok wow so I haven’t updated in forever on the platinums I’ve gotten o_o I’ve gone from 72 to 81 platinums btw
Heres my recent Platinums
#73: Life is Strange Before the Storm
#74: Life is Strange
#75: Rocket League
#76: Tekken 6
#78: Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion
#79: Saints Row IV: Re-elected
#80: Planet RIX-13
#81: SEGA Genesis Classics
yea..I’ve been pretty busy with both getting platinums and dealing with crap from family ._. I’m still impressed I managed this amount though with all the stress recently, BUT things are slowly getting better and I’m still alive and getting lots of new Platinums, people c:
Platinum #72: Dishonored Death of the Outsider
Very simple easy Platinum. The contracts can be a little annoying though at times, but once you figure everything out, easy as hell tbh
Next Platinum: Either Digimon Cyber Sleuth Hackers Memory or Echo (Echos a severely underrated indie title, PLEASE PLAY IT IF YOU HAVENT, ITS INCREDIBLE)
Platinum #70 and #71: Undertale and Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2
Lets start with #70. Short game, easy trophies and Platinum. Genocide run I may consider for near future honestly
Now for #71: ...relentless grind fest. NEVER AGAIN
Next Platinum: I still haven’t decided yet but I’m considering trying to Platinum Digimon Cyber Sleuth Hackers Memory or Rainbow Six Siege (could use help with rainbow sometime)
Platinum #69: Spider-Man
...The ending crushed my soul ;-; Overall tho, this game was AWESOME. Quite possibly one of the best, if not THE best Spider-Man game
Next Platinum: Undertale
So I got 1 more surprise gift for my birthday. The Dead Rising HD collection. However, I need help with TIR trophies in DR2. Anyone able to help?
Im able to buy myself 1 more game for my birthday. Which do I choose? A game from a series I HATE that everyone loves (although this entry looks pretty fun and easy Platinum) or an anime fighting game with easy trophies?
Basically, Dragon Quest XI or My hero: Ones justice? From a critical and trophy hunting standpoint, which is better?
I cant decide ;-; GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Such good games imo, but..UGHHHHHHHHH T_T

Its not one of those series where im like "Boycot it, BOYCOT IT!!!" itss just one of those series where I get why people love it but I personally cant get into it overall, even if my life depended on it. I played 7 and I quite liked it, but then it got so much more bland, imo. Once hero got announced for Smash, friends of mine just kept begging I play XI and tbh..Looks passable enough to where im thinking maybe I'll give it a chance and see what I think. I mean shit, ive become more open to playing just about anything over the years. Plus ive been opening myself up to more JRPGs instead of specifically Persona and Kingdom Hearts, so I figure "Ok, maybe theres something im not seeing with Dragon Quest?"
Like for example, I never got into JRPGs like Final Fantasy, Eternal Sonata or the Tales series. Most times I saw them and thought "..BLAAAAAAAAAND" As I got older however, I started seeing flaws yes but also big things to praise in each game. So looking at Dragon Quest XI, I thought to myself "..I loved 7, so..What made me hate Dragon Quest in general? Its like Final Fantasy as far as combat or just about any turned based RPG. Is there some edge that makes it unique that im not seeing?" More or less, I see it as a way to expand my horizons and try looking past flaws to see if theres something im not seeing with this series
Welp today went from a meh day to "Holy..GURL, CAN WE REPLAY THIS DAMN DAY?!" To sum it up, this day ended up fucking awesome. Btw, thank you for all the birthday wishes
So, no Dave and Busters trip too expensive >_> To make up for it, Burger King for Dinner, and for the cake..CHOCOLATE CAKE :3
Also finally got my new phone to top this sundae called my birthday with a nice cherry..
I FINALLY GOT THE BIOSHOCK COLLECTION ON PS4 ;-; Well..Got the chance to order it online, so gotta wait a little (Bioshocks my 9th favorite game series of all time. been dying to get this collection for PS4)
All in all, this gif sums up my mood after today: https://giphy.com/gifs/day-cake-realise-zcgKFHYzFVbAQ
..Todays the day. Im officially 22. Hopefully today, I'll be going out getting drinks and having fun at Dave and Busters tonight. This oughta be a fun evening I hope
https://tenor.com/view/birthday-cake-happybirthday-baby-messy-gif-5542914 this about to me later tho
Welp, Happy early Birthday to me!
So, I got $81.37 to Gamestop from grandparents on my dads side today. Considering I made an impulse buy of Gravity Rush 2 yesterday (Im actually liking it a lot so far) I decided to get 3 games
Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled
Fate/Extella The umbral star
Shadow of the Colossus (Been reading up on this game, im..Im shook)
Cannot wait to relive my childhood with CTR
Gravity Rush 2 or Shadow of the Collosus?
I have $25 due to my great grandma sending me money for my birthday (Thats on Sunday) and im debating on these two masterpieces. As far as story, gameplay, and trophies..Based on my preference of games, which would be better?
I like games with colorful settings, captivating stories, great realistic characters, unique gameplay..And as far as trophies, I like mixing it up every so often. So, based on those preferences alone..Which is recommended highly?

Shadow of Colossus is a masterpiece. Not much words to the story and one that seems to be simple at first. But the ending made me go wow. I absolutely loved the gameplay as it's challenging but not frustrating.
Gravity Rush is more artsy and sylized and is more of a fun, whimsical tone. I haven't played the second one, but the first one was great. It has a cool overworld and the powers are fun to play with.
Platinum #63: God of War
Wow. Just..Wow. Umm. So yeah, this game. This uhh._this game
I WAS BAWLING TOWARDS THE END ;-; no, I actually was crying hysterically when Kratos and Atreus shared a genuine father son moment, spreading the ashes of Atreus' mother. They built up so well with Kratos struggling to tell his son the truth of who he is, and the character development of Atreus. The struggle of trying to do as his father wants..It moved me so much. I never had my dad around, so this game really hit me hard with story. Now as for collectibles, easy enough. Valkyries were easy as hell..Except QUEEN VALKYRIE, THAT STUPID *BEEP* (I want to say the C word, but that title belongs to me Jk) Like I said tho, I assumed it'd be meh, but..It shook me with how incredible it was
Next Platinum: I think either Slime Rancher or Fallout 4 (Although I'll be playing Borderlands and Dying Light with friends possibly today, so might try getting more trophies in those games)
...I dont know what to Platinum next! ;-; HELP! Heres what I have that I can Platinum (I probably posted this before, but oh well)
Uncharted 1 to 3 (3 is glitched for some reason, the treasure and lost relic trophy)
Jak and Daxter 1
Mirrors edge Catalyst (I wanna make this a milestone personally)
Agents of Mayhem
Dead Rising 4
The Last of us (Wanna make this a milestone too)
World of Final Fantasy
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Persona 5 (Wanna make this a milestone as well)
Beyond Two Souls
Detroit become human
Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep (Milestone purely cause TERRAS JOURNAL BS AND CRITICAL ARE A DAMN NIGHTMARE >_>)
Kingdom Hearts Chain of memories
God of war
Dragonball Xenoverse 1 and 2
Just Cause 3
Borderlands 2 and Pre sequel
(Possibly getting these soon): Crash Team Racing and Shadow of the Collosus
Platinum #61 and #62: Tower of Dragonasia and Human Fall Flat
One game was just horrendous, while the other was pretty damn fun but a little challenging at times. Spoilers: Human Fall Flat was the better game
Platinum #60: Bully
Ahh. A childhood favorite of mine. I remember getting the Scholarship edition on Wii when I was at a local game shop, literally begged for it. 100% completed it, got it on Xbox 360 a few years later, came close to 100% again till my Xbox broke. Now the PS2 on PS4 port..Got the Platinum
Next Platinum: ..We shall see O_O I have yet to decide tbh
So, shit. Got myself PlayStation now and decided to get a Platinum or 2. Got 7, plus 2 easy Platinums on the PS store ._. Some easy, some just..Oh my god. Anyway, they are
#51: Gem Smashers
#52: Adams Venture: Origins
#53: Sky Scrappers
#54: Day of the tentacle
#56: Awesome Pea
#58: Clockwork Tales
#59: Magus (DONT EVEN PLAY IT, IT SUCKS
Platinum #50: Resident Evil 7
I did enough rambling about this one on stream, and made a short speech so..Heres a gif of how I felt during getting the madhouse trophies
And heres a GIF of how I felt getting the Platinum
Next Platinum: Borderlands 2 or Borderlands pre sequel (Yes, im getting the handsome collection on Tuesday)
That moment when you're really close to Platinum #50, and you're planning some speech about trophy hunting, knowing you'll sound like a complete goofball
Welp. Im going for the Resident Evil 7 Platinum. Yaaaaaaaaaaaay T_T and apparently I havent unlocked Madhouse even though I beat the fucking game awhile back
Platinum #49: Kingdom Hearts Final Mix
Ok..I said it would be Sims 4, but then I checked my trophy list and said "Huh..I only need 2 trophies to get the KH1 Platinum." Because nostalgia kicked in, I was like "..FUCK IT!"
Now, for clarification. Regarding the blueprints trophy, YOU DONT NEED EVERY BLUEPRINT. Not in PS4 version. You just need 30. Proof is provided on my YouTube channel. Anyways
This series is near and dear to my heart. I always viewed the destiny island trio as older siblings, seeing their cheesy love and support for each other, always put a smile on my face in dark times personally. Im 2 Platinums away from all Platinums in the KH games, and I couldnt be happier
Next Platinum: 3 choices...Resident Evil 7 *slams my head over and over on the wall* God of war 4 *screams internally* or..(im gonna get so much hate, but..) SLIME RANCHER
Question, regarding KH1
Im trying to go for 30 or more blueprints trophy. Ive got about 20. The blueprints on routes, how do I find them? Do I keep killing enemies and all? If so, whats a good setup for the gummi ship so im not stuck using default?
Platinum #48: Lovers in a dangerous spacetime
Tbh..Wow. This game was actually really fun! Very colorful, unique, and charming overall. I really enjoy how the game plays overall, and I love just..Well, the love in it! Overall, so much fun and very easy Platinum.
Next Platinum: Sims 4
Platinum #47: Call of duty 4 Modern Warfare Remastered
My god..This one PISSED ME OFF. I despise what Call of duty has become, but..First Modern Warfare isnt terrible. It was ok. The Platinum however, so damn rewarding. Tbh, I had more fun with getting this one than attempting to get Bloodbornes Platinum (My reflexes for the most part suck with from software games, but shit. If I had a co op partner or an easy method for farming Blood echoes, it'd be so much easier) But yea. COD4 remaster. Not a great remaster, but fun Platinum
Next Platinum: Lovers in a dangerous spacetime
People around me: What are you doing when not hunting trophies?
Platinum #46: Mad Max
...Where THE FUCK DO I BEGIN WITH THIS ONE?!
Imma keep it breif. Annoying but worthwhile Platinum. I finally got it and im so fucking happy
Next Platinum: Either Bloodborne or Call of duty 4 remastered
