  1. Yeah, been there, done that, got the Gigantimax Butterfree. I told myself not to buy Pokemon Sword, but I couldn't help it. I played through Shield to the eighth gym and felt like I could do better. I was going to buy Pokemon Sword first but I got a crazy idea about unicorns that I regret. Anyways, Pokemon Sword is like Monster Hunter World except with a kid-friendly vibe, you can try to fight the max raid Pokemon again and pray you don't get the Wobbuffet and Magikarp trainer. I know I should be inviting other players to do 5-star max raids because it takes longer than three turns to complete them but... I'm putting down serious gaming for a while. Started playing Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair on another account, get 30 bees and I really wasted my sleep schedule. This game is a decent sequel to the original game and a nod to Donkey Kong Country with an overhead overworld. It even takes Breath of the Wild's page and lets you try to beat the final dungeon before you do any work and even gives you a reward for it... if you're insane.
  2. Looks like fun!
  3. By that time, they'll have the Diamond/Pearl remakes. I plan on doing the games I had listed on my own time, unfettered by deadlines.
  4. @iXanon, I have changed my mind on this event. Please remove me from the list of participants. I don't think I would be able to get this event done on time without doing a bunch of EZPZ games and I'm already too busy playing Pokemon Shield to try to fill out the rest of my list. I'm pretty much going to revert to lurker status or less than that after today because I am not motivated to play any more PS4 games for a while, at least until I complete the Pokedex in Pokemon Shield.
  5. Update... well, not really. I am here to somberly resign from this event. Now that Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield have come out, Max Raid Battles have taken over my life. (That and finding out that the only way I can get my favorite ghost Pokemon, Mimikyu, is by Max Raid battles until I beat the main story ) Since Pokemon has sucked me in, I am assured that I will be unable to do any trophy hunting until 2020 and even then, I feel unmotivated. I'd rather abandon this event than try to finish the list. Also, I have other reasons. I might do those games later, but only casually and therefore I won't be playing very often and will miss the deadline. MidnightDragon, could you please put me as DNF? Good luck to everyone else. I'm sure you will be more motivated in this.
  6. Yeah, I am almost finished. Right now I am taking a break because Carnage Dark is kicking my ass as I didn't use Killia to fight him and my damage is way too weak. I am using a Sage that I reincarnated a couple of time - she's at 1.8 million stats but that's just not enough to burst CD's defenses. With Pokemon Sword and Shield three days away I will probably be consumed by Pokemon for the next month but I will try to get those final trophies.
  7. So I am pretty much at the impasse of my life. I have only a few trophies left to get in Disgaea 5, I thought it would be my 100th platinum, but nope, the final superboss I have to beat to get the gold trophy is saying "hope, ain't gonna happen", and laughs at me as my strongest character can't even make a dent in his zillion hit points. I am going to put Disgaea 5 in timeout for the time being and focus on the other games I need to do. Ratchet and Clank looks promising. I am almost finished with the regular run, am at the final dungeon now... Or maybe I shouldn't finally get to work on Castlevania which I promised I would do for Halloween and failed hard at it. Some good old retro gaming never hurt a body.
  8. Finally found my list. Sheesh, it has been a long time! Anyways, I swapped Kingdom Hearts III for Disgaea 5. It was 24% when I started so it was under the 30% when I put it on. Not anymore. I managed to finish the main story and unlocked the Carnage Dimension, completing all of the Item World trophies. (In fact, Unlosing Ranger Status was the trophy that pushed me to Level 25 on my trophy rank. ) I'm going to keep at the game until I get the platinum. I had help from this Youtube called Green Z-Saber who loves to speed-run Disgaea 5. I decided on this game as it was easy to get into and Disgaea 4 Complete+ is coming out.
  9. Sly Cooper really needs to be ported to the PS4. I don't feel like buying the games on my Vita and the PS3 versions suck in controls. But they're not going to do it since Sony is too busy with PS5 now. Those games had great dialogue in them. Also, Pokemon-wise, I would love it if Pokemon Sword and Shield had in-game achievements similar to the medals in Black 2/White 2, and you'd get rare items if you did the harder challenges like the Battle Tower. Nobody plays the Battle Tower except for ribbons, which stinks as Emerald's Battle Frontier had a lot going for it. Fighting Pike Queen Lucy after only two runs of the Pike shows how the game can ambush you and surprise you, but now Game Freak is too scared to do things to challenge players. I appreciate the fact that they revealed that you can change your Pokemon's nature with mints and feed them candy to give them free EXP, but it makes those of us who struggled through Gen 3 onward feel cheated. On an off note, I wish that the Fairy type had been added in Gen 3 as a special type, since Eevee has a fairy-type evolution so it still fit the theme of "if Eevee has a type evolution, it's special, that and dragon." Sorry to jump in with that. A lot of people leaked a lot of stuff and it got taken down and now Pokemon Sword and Shield are almost a week away.
  10. I'm still alive, everyone! Sorry, Pokemon has my soul, but I am going to try to multi-task a grind and put Disgaea 5 on this list as another from my Kill Your Completion X list(it was 24% when I quit). Since I forgot how to play the game, I will start over from a fresh file and update when I get a trophy(since I got a lot of trophies on my last file).
  11. That's what I will never play a horror game. It either has tons of jump scares or lots of gore, which is a sad remnant of the old slasher flick era of Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th.
  12. They did remaster Red and Blue for the Switch... but they tainted it with Pokemon GO crap. I just reloaded Pokemon Let's Go Eevee and hated it - I kept losing Pokeballs because of the dumb Pokemon GO catching mechanics. Leave that crap to the mobile game. The big sh** is that this is the only way you can gain decent EXP by getting a catch combo up to Level 99. There's a video about someone getting an entire team of Pokemon GO Pokemon up to Level 100 by chaining Butterfree and it was boring. I'll still beat Let's Go Eevee so I can get transfer some of the Gen 1 Mons to Pokemon Sword and Shield, but I'd rather export a Swords Dancing Double Edge Gloom from my Virtual copy of Pokemon Yellow so I can teach it Leaf Blade as a Bellossom and really wreck Chansey. Also, you can't get Meltan except through Pokemon GO, which stinks as Melmetal looks like one of those Digimon in Cyber Sleuth and really awesome. I don't mind you being a Genwunner, Cass. As long as you are civil about it. I hate rabid Genwunners because they wish they could make Pokemon Red and Blue 2 instead of giving the other mechanics a chance. I admit that it would be nice to Earthquake a Weezing and kill it but to each their own. I can see why people are Genwunners - Game Freak think Pokemon is a great testing ground for stuff they try and throw in the trash. I want Pokemon to be more than just earning eight badges and then fighting the champion of the region. At least Sword and Shield seem to be a bit more reactive with all of the commercial sponsorship things Happy Halloween, Cass! May you never accidentally drink a Polteageist.
  13. Since my last Platinum trophy of October was not on the list, I decided to make a summary of all of the Platinum Trophies I earned on this list in October before I commit to anything else. I know the Backlog is going to last the rest of the year and some into 2020, but I want you to know where I've been: (PS4 version) Earned October 6 while house-sitting for my parents. Very long and boring but I do like the hub worlds and the liveliness of the theme park. Earned October 7 while house-sitting for my parents. A very short and easy platinum but really goofy and you won't like it if you don't like Mystery Science Theater. Also, a lot of miscellaneous trophies involving hurling yourself from the tower to land somewhere. Earned October 10 while house-sitting for my parents. It would have taken a lot longer had the game not had this broken glitch that allows you instant upgrades for your weapons very quickly. Before I fought the first boss, I had both Toan and Xiao's weapons to their ultimate level. Still, I do want to try to buy Dark Cloud 2 and Rogue Galaxy and work on those even though they have annoying min-max animal trophies. And those are all I got done. Blame Pokemon. However, I did most of the list in first month and I should have games that are very long and grindy to fill out the rest of the event time period. Can't get 50 games done in 2 months, can we? I do intend to try to get a platinum or two in November despite Pokemon Sword and Shield coming out on the 15th. Sadly, no Castlevania for Halloween.
  14. I'm probably to overhaul my list a bit and put Disgaea 4 Complete+ as my D entry. I really enjoyed the characters in Disgaea 4 and I feel like Disgaea is more suited for the home console than the PS Vita. I know Disgaea 4 is harder to grind in but I have plenty of time to plan for it.
  15. It's not only difficult but also EXPENSIVE. Even after finding a retro game store that sells on the cheap, I was still down $200 for the GameCube, the DS, an actual Gameboy Advance(because the GBA/Cube link cable won't work with DS) and a copy of all of the games I would need. I was lucky my parents paid me good money to watch their house and my sister's dogs during a couple of out-of-state trips. I'm also working on getting ribbons on the Butterfree and that's a whole new can of Wurmple considering you have to do three rounds of contests, Battle Tower for five games for a 50-win streak as well as the Battle Maison AND the Battle Tree in Sun/Moon. Thanks for the luck, I know I won't be able to get 1/3 of the way done before November 15. The Professor Oak challenge isn't tough, just time-consuming. It's worse to grind for EXP in Gens 5 and 7 because the EXP goes the Shining Force route and the higher your Pokemon's level, the less EXP you get from any battle. Gen 7 also axed the trainer 1.5x bonus so it's faster to just farm wild Pokemon instead of wasting time with petty trainers. Ruby's easier because of the Pickup ability Zigzagoon(which you can catch in the first route) have that have a 15% chance every fight to pick up a Rare Candy. If I make a new trophy checklist thread, I can talk all about Pokemon there and not clog Cassy's thread with talk about a series that isn't on Playstation.
  16. Yeah, I used up most of my free money to digitally re-purchase Let's Go Eevee. But my GAWD you CANNOT play this in handheld mode(my favorite Switch mode) because you will never get an Excellent throw on handheld mode. I'll have to locate my dock again... Also, I didn't avoid spoilers because some of the new Pokemon were really cool. I will hint that old Pokemon get regional variants like some did in Pokemon Sun/Moon. If you are a big fan of K.I.S.S., you will probably like one of the Galarian forms which actually gets a new evolution. Yeah, I know. Just think, if I hadn't caught that episode in the original anime where Ash defeats Brock in his gym long ago, I might have had a different life.
  17. I love your banner.
  18. Yes, I know Past Me, I know, I need to get started on this event, but Pokemon Sword is coming out in November... I'm certainly glad this is a year-long event, I don't think I can handle it if I had to get my games platinumed in a month.
  19. You really know how to put humor into the worst situations, Cass. As for me, I... am woefully untouching my PS4 or Vita these days even though I bought a couple of quick easy platinums.... Because of Pokemon. Yeah, Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield are due out in 18 days so I am trying to do a personal quest to get a Butterfree from Pokemon X.D. all the way to Pokemon Moon with as many ribbons as possible. Sure, you don't get any trophies for playing Pokemon but you get ribbons, so it's sort of a personal challenge for me. Unfortunately, Pokemon games are RPGs so they take a LONG time to complete, even more so since I'm trying to get every Pokemon I can catch before battling each gym. I'm on Pokemon Ruby now grinding out to 67/386 Pokemon before facing the next gym. But I must confess: I like Pokemon more than I do earning trophies. I think it's because I've played Pokemon since the original Red and Blue in 1997 and was a big fan of the anime because it was dubbed correctly. Sure, they removed a few things and changed a few things but it was nice to see Ash Ketchum and his Pikachu solving people's problems. I have earned some PSN trophies, though, I've gotten closer to the Ratchet and Clank platinum and hopefully my DS battery will die so I can recharge it and take time to finish the Vita version of A Winter's Daydream. Or just mash through it. That game is a very beautiful visual novel and you don't have to make any choices to get multiple endings, but that's the thing that makes its more storybook than actual 'game', as you don't have to interact, you can just read stuff. I have every book in the Cat Who series, Midnight Louie, and the Mystic Notch series of cat murder mysteries. If I wanted to read a book, I could read one of those. I like the images but I wonder if I could have just make it a book and imagined the characters. Still, I do intend to try to get to my 100th platinum. Sadly, my save file on Kingdom Hearts III glitched and I couldn't register one of the treasures in Monstropolis, so I had to delete my save and start over. Oh, congrats on finally platinuming The Flame In the Flood and sorry for the wall of text.
  20. Unfortunately, the only game I have to get that has an Ultra Rare I like is Dark Cloud 2(which I will buy eventually).
  21. Don't worry, I did update my list two days ago but forgot to update. I am glad that my handhelds need to charge their batteries or I'd sell my PS4. Anyways, while charging my 3DS (which is now busted in the bottom screen for some reason ) I decided to just get more Ratchet and Clank done and am at the final part of the first run. I got all of the hoverboard race trophies and whatnot so I just have to get the RYNO and kill everything to complete the main story, then go through the challenge run to get Death by Disco and upgrade all of the weapons to Level 10. Might work some more on Yooka-Laylee and get started on Castlevania Requiem for my Halloween gaming time.
  22. I checked the Playstation Store and it doesn't have this game so maybe it won't release until 2020? That's a shame, this would be a great game to play for Halloween.
  23. I am going to have to make a mandatory swap. My copy of Kingdom Hearts III GLITCHED. One of the treasure chests in the Gummiphone did NOT register and I had opened that chest already so it's lost for good, meaning I can't get the trophy for 100% of the Treasures on the Gummiphone, which means I have to restart the entire game. It's heartbreaking. I am going to have to uninstall and reinstall that damn game and I don't think I will want to touch it, I will make it Platinum #150, which won't happen until summer 2020 because, Pokemon has my life right now. Once I finish 100%ing Pokemon Sword, I will come back to trophy hunting. Right now I am going through every Pokemon game in existence for a personal mission and I can't do too much else. So I'd like to swap out that game for another game, maybe re: Chain of Memories. I enjoyed that game a bit. EDIT: Let me give a brief explanation of why I can't platinum Kingdom Hearts III until summer 2020 despite being halfway done. One of the chests in Monstropolis, which had the Fencer's Earring in it, was opened during my exploration of that world. However, Jiminy's Gummiphone list for the treasures in that world did not register that chest as collected. And I had checked every other chest, the game tells you what treasures you have collected, the Fencer's Earring was the only one 'not' collected even though the chest which had it was opened. Yes, I probably sold the dang thing, but the Treasures list would have registered it because I opened its chest. IT DID NOT, so it is a glitch which means I cannot get the trophy for that section unless I delete my save and restart the entire game to that point. I do not mind going through the game a second time, but with Pokemon Sword and Shield and Sims 4's newest expansion on the horizon, I will be too busy playing old Pokemon games to have much time for Playstation games. I do intend to do a Castlevania Requiem marathon for Halloween, though. I might also try to work a bit of Dragon Quest XI too because that game is dope. EDIT 2: Sorry about my ranting, it's just disheartening when a game you love glitches out on you and makes the platinum impossible without a redo. I had hoped that one of my favorite series would not do this, but I guess R&D didn't catch this. I'll have to report it and see if they can catch it and patch it out. Anyways, other than the Castlevania Requem thing for this weekend for Halloween(my sister invited me to her Halloween party so I will be busy Friday evening) and maybe some Dragon Quest XI, I won't be playing any PSN games until maybe my birthday on December because Pokemon Sword and Shield and Sims 4 Discovery Universiity drop on the same day, November 15, and my life will be consumed by those two things so I am getting ready for those by refreshing myself with Pokemon games and, since they're RPGs, they require a lot of work. (Especially since I am doing an insane challenge on my copy of Pokemon Moon.) I'm not going to drop out yet because I have four months to try to make up time, but for now I am pretty much off the radar and won't update for a while.
  24. Thanks for the information, MidnightDragon. Anyways, I forgot to update this, so might as well... Kingdom Hearts III (28%) Final Fantasy VIII Remastered (22%) Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age (20% > 21%) Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered (PS4) (1%) Secret of Mana (2%) Ratchet and Clank (18%) Yooka-Laylee (0% > 24%) Castlevania Requiem (0%) Dark Cloud (100% ) [10/10] The Deadly Tower of Monsters (100% ) [10/7] LEGO Jurassic World (PS4) (100% ) [10/4] Devious Dungeon 2 (Vita) (100% ) [9/24] Enigmatis: Ghosts of Maple Creek (100% ) [9/7] Enigmatis 2: The Mists of Ravenwood (100% ) [9/17] Enigmatis 3: Shadows of Karkhala (100% ) [9/27] Dark Arcana: The Carnival (100% ) [9/26] Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden (100% ) [9/8] Lost Grimoires 2: Shard of Mystery (100% ) [9/15] Buff Knight Advanced (100% ) [9/13] LEGO Batman 3 (Vita) (100% ) [9/17] LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 (Vita) (100% ) [9/13] LEGO Jurassic World (Vita) (100% ) [9/9] Daggerhood (Vita) (100% ) [9/1] Legend of the Skyfish (PS4) (100% ) [9/2] Pic-a-Pix Classic (Vita) (100% ) [9/4] Lara Croft GO (100% ) [9/2] Added Yooka-Laylee to my list and got through all of the pagies I could get without having to expand the first two worlds. Managed to finally get a high score on Rextro's first arcade game after finding ways to get through the racetrack with shortcuts. The Rextro games are my least favorite part of the game. Also managed to get a trophy in Dragon Quest XI - Beast Basher for killing 1000 enemies, which I earned because I was farming Gallopolis for Metal Slimes. I got a lot of skullriders, lots of chimeras... zero metal slimes. I eventually got two levels naturally without the slimes and just decided to head into Gallopolis, get the puff puff there, and save and be done with it for now. I have some Pokemon stuff to do this weekend.
  25. I admit that this rivals My Name Is Mayo for how mindless this game is with no multiple ending or what not. just mash through the text, but I paused to read some of the text and damn the writing is deep. It doesn't fall into the route most visual novels take and ask you to make decisions to do multiple endings, it's a very simple story. I've read a lot of deep novels and this title doesn't pretend to be a cool dating simulation game, it sticks to a simple storyline that lasts for only a few days and has a simple premise that is resolved quickly. The music goes from sad to cute and it's pretty good for a game developed on Ren'py.
