  1. Really looking forward to starting this one...no clue on what to think of the list though compared to other Yakuza games. Anyone play the Japanese version?
  2. I've been enjoying the game a lot so far but this is my main gripe as well.
  3. Yes. I detailed the process on the second bullet point of my post.
  4. Go for it!
  5. You sir/madam, are my hero. I'll be trying this when I get home tonight!
  6. A few things on the difficulty related trophies: Master of Masters difficulty unlocks after completing all the levels on Master Samurai difficulty. You can unlock all of the level related difficulty trophies for Master of Masters difficulty by playing through the level on easier difficulty, dying on the boss, and changing the difficulty to Master of Masters at the continue screen and then completing the boss fight. HOWEVER, when I did this, the trophy My Mission is Righteous for completing all the levels on Master of Masters difficulty DID NOT unlock. As far as I can tell, you have to complete all the levels entirely on Master of Masters difficulty for the trophy to pop. I wouldn't even attempt Master of Masters difficultly until you and your weapons are fully upgraded. Enemies are pretty tough and the enemy group compositions can be a real pain in the ass too.
  7. I've been working on trying to get the platinum and have hit a bit of roadblock in the form of the trophy Armed to the Teeth. I've played through the game multiple times and I haven't been able to figure out what I am missing (there is the possibility the trophy is glitched too). I figured the best way to try and figure out this issue to compile a list of every weapon I have found so far and hope that someone might be able to fill in the blank of what I have missed. A few things first: I have not completed all the 'Missions' so there might be a possibility something unlocks there on completing all of them. Same goes for the the in game challenges found under Record in the game menu. Many weapons need to be gathered by targeting a low health enemy while you are using Samurai Fist and using throw on them (R1). This will let you loot the weapon they are currently using and add it to you inventory if you have space available. You can physically see what weapon you will get from an enemy if you pay attention to what they are using against you in combat. So far I found out that one boss has a weapon that can be stolen using the above method. On Aku City, the boss fight has you up against two enemies during a sidescrolling train. To get the weapon, take down the enemy wearing the red shirt. Then carefully lower the health of enemy with the umbrella until she is crouching down. Make sure you are using Samurai Fist and have an open space in your polearm inventory and use throw (R1). That should finish off the boss (which also popped Clinch Victory for me) and loot Josephine's Parasol. I have tried this method a handful of times on other bosses and wasn't able to loot anything so as far as I know, this is the only boss that has a lootable weapon. The following list of weapons is based purely on my own experience playing the game and is by no means exhaustive. I put where I first ran into the weapon but it doesn't mean it is the only source or that they don't show up earlier than that. The difficultly level also determines what weapons enemies are carrying. SWORD Magic Sword - Default Weapon Katana - Buy in the shop Great Samurai Warrior's Sword - Found in chests. First found in the Cave of the Ancient level. Broadsword - Stolen via Throw from the ancient warriors (larger grey enemies, usually carrying a shield as well). First found in the Cave of the Ancient level. Flamberge - Stolen via Throw from the ancient warriors. I first found it in the Snowy Forest level. Falchion - Stolen via Throw from ancient warriors. I first found it in the Snowy Forest level. HAMMER Warhammer - Found in chests. First found it on the Aku City level, right after you get out of the sewers. Beetle Drone Kama - Looted automatically during the Boon's Castle boss fight. Axe - Stolen via Throw from the ancient warriors. First found in the Cave of the Ancient level. Mallet - Stolen via Throw from ancient warriors. Also given to you by the Scotsman on the Ruined City level. Nodachi - Stolen via Throw from ancient warriors. Can also be found in chests. SPEAR Lightning Spear - Can be found in chests. Also given to you by one of the Scotsman's Daughters. Bamboo Staff - Given to you by the Scotsman on the Boon's Castle level near the start. Can also be found in chests or in the shop. Naginata - Stolen via throw from ancient warriors. Josephine's Parasol - Stolen via throw from the Aku City boss fight. See above for my method. Sasaho Yari - Stolen via throw from ancient warriors. First found during the Snowy Forest level. Onoyari - Stolen via throw from ancient warriors. First found during the Snowy Forest level. Polearm - Stolen via throw from ancient warriors. First found during the Cave of the Ancient level. CLUB Club - Stolen via throw from the robo crocodiles. First found in the Aku's Mine level. Can also be bought from the shop. Spiked Club - Stolen via throw from robo crocodiles. First found during the Cave of the Ancient level. Also given to you by the Scotsman on the Aku City level. Flanged Mace - Stolen via throw from robo crocodiles. First found during the Aku's City level. Morning Star - Given to you by the Scotsman during the Cave of the Ancient level, right before you enter the cave proper. Can also be stolen via throw from robo crocodiles. BOW AND ARROW Wood Bow - Can be purchased from the shop. Leaf Spring Bow - Can be looted from chests. First found in the Boon's Castle level. Silver Bow - Can be looted from chests. First found in the Ruined City level. Shows up in the shop in later levels. HANDGUN Revolver - Can be found in chests. Stolen via throw from Bounty Hunters (the cat people wearing safari gear). Pistol - Purchased from the shop. Can also be found in chests. Handgun - Stolen via throw from grey Bounty Hunters in later levels. MACHINE GUN Machine Gun - Can be purchased from shop. Also found in chests. Assault Rifle - Stolen via throw from Bounty Hunters. Battle Rifle - Can be purchased from the shop. First found during the Aku's Tower level. THROWN WEAPONS Shuriken - Can be found in chests. Purchasable from the shop. Also drops from dead enemies as normal loot. Kaiken - Can be found in chests. Purchasable from the shop. Also drops from dead enemies as normal loot. Reaper - Can be found in chests. Stolen via throw from smaller Beetle Drone enemies (the red and black kind). Also purchasable from the shop. X-28 - Found in chests during the Prison Ship level. X-49 - Automatically looted after a cutscene during the Prison Ship level. I think it only is given during lower difficulties. Can only carry one at a time. I hope this helps some people out and if you find something I don't have listed, please let me know it's name and where you found it so I can update this list as needed. Thanks all and happy hunting.
  8. The only thing I can think of is to make sure you are unarmed when you do it? I know I was when it triggered.
  9. So it is a little bit weird. I got it during the Aku City boss fight. During the fight take out the big guy first and then get the lady down to barely any health. You want to try and wait for her to go down on her knees and then THROW her using R1. I know it was a throw since it gave me her weapon once I did it. That got the trophy to pop for me.
  10. It does. I think it's gonna be relatively rough too if the first level is any indication. The enemy group comps are very different.
  11. If you beat the game on Master Samurai difficulty you do get a different ending. All I am going to say.
  12. I was having the same issue until I went around the map and found a grate blocking an entrance to cave in The Gulf. After I broke that the trophy popped.
  13. Been neglected my updates on trophy hunting even though I've been going pretty hard this last month. I've gotten 10 more platinums since my last update (most recent being Doom Eternal #40 and Deliver Us the Moon #41) and I'll be doing another rapid fire update to the Crucible of Completion in the near future to catch up.

  14. Most of the trophies seem relatively painless. Extra Life Mode might be a pain, depending on what it is...
  15. Got Platinum #31 with Bioshock 2. Hopefully I'll be done 100% over the course of the weekend.
