LancashireLad87 replied to CyberC-2's topic in Forum GamesAlthough you have a lot of games unfinished which I'd have no problem cleaning up such as Dead Space 1, Batman Arkham Asylum, Ninja Gaiden, Devil May Cry, Crash Team Racing and a myriad of fighting games. I don't have the strength to work on your completion rate over 13000 unearned trophies would drive me insane. Nor would I want to boost 1000 online matches in Dead or Alive 5 Vanilla again or Ultra Street Fighter 4's online grind. Plus you have less percentage on Resident Evil 2 Remake than I do and I loathe that title.
Just hit 2000 site reputation! I'd like to thank everyone who's motivated me or encouraged me on my trophy journey thus far and the support/comments on my posts. If it wasn't for you guys I probably wouldn't post as frequently as I do. I have many ideas I would like to post about in the future it's just having the time to do it. For a while I was contemplating on hosting some PSNP gameplay events to bring the community closer together, not sure if this has happened before or how successful it was but I'm hoping to host one before the end of the year. Here's to the next 2000!
Last Sunday myself and a friend decided to play Persona 4 Arena Ultimax earlier than expected because the Fear 3 servers were for a lack of a better word shit. The trophy guides state that the real platinum blocker is completing all of 1 characters combo trials. So the lad set his sights on that goal, I tried a few characters such as Shadow Labrys and Akihiko but I settled with Sho (Non Persona Version) since he fit my playstyle much better than the other 2. Some characters have "shadow" versions of themselves which adds an additional 5 combo trials.
I haven't had much spare time to play Persona 4 Arena Ultimax but I cleared the combo trials on day 1. Overall I can see why less experienced players would have a rough time with some of those combo trials. The final combo trial for each character lacks a demonstration so I was forced to scour the internet for a solution. Sho has 25 character trials to complete, according to the trophy guide the difficulty rating for his trials specifically is 7.5/10 I'm assuming that means with pause exploit which I don't do because the lad is not a bitch haha.
Naturally I've recorded some of the combos for you guys to see, hope you enjoy the videos I think in total I spent about 45 minutes to an hour for his trials. 1-19 were fairly straightforward. All combos were performed on a DualShock 4 D-Pad using Default controls.
One of my favourite aspects of fighting games is being able to perform cool combos. Since I had a bit of spare time to try out Street Fighter X Tekken on the PlayStation 3 on a dummy account I thought I'd share some cool combos I managed to pull off plus a bonus episode of in many players eyes the hardest mission in the game to complete "Beyond Human". I got that on my second attempt on a dummy account, honestly it's not that bad if your patient and you punish on reaction. I dropped quite a few combos due to my inexperience with the game and I managed to pull it off. For those of you who aren't aware of SFXT it's a 2 Vs 2 2D Fighter consisting of you guessed it Street Fighter and Tekken characters!
Beyond Human is notorious for causing people problems because Ancient Ogre and Akuma have 3 health gems EACH that replenishes their health once it dips below a certain threshold. They both have infinite super meter so they can spam EX special moves and supers until the cows come home, you unfortunately don't have that luxury. I beat them with the standard gem set as well. It's crucial that you switch or tag in your other character mid-combo to allow for more damage and to let any grey health recover. As you can see from my video I punished Ogre's grab and his aerial attack, as for Akuma you must jump when he tries to Raging Demon you into oblivion because that will melt your health bar.
His other super Misogi can be blocked standing and then punished like I did. Hope you guys were entertained and enjoyed the videos. I might try some Injustice 2 stuff the next time I have some spare time or I'm bored which ever comes first! Overall I think Mission 19 is easier than fighting Nagoriyuki on Extreme difficulty in Guilty Gear Strive legit and floor 100 on DNF Duel against the Lone Warrior. If you'd like to try these combos for yourself I've included combo notations for each video respectively, all combos were performed on a regular Dualshock 3 D-Pad because the lad cannot use analogue stick to save his life ^^
@Copanele Yeah he loves to spam that super because of how much guard damage it does
As some of you may have seen I started Onrush on the PlayStation 4 towards the back end of last week. I'm really enjoying the game thus far, it's an unusual racing game because it emphasizes co-operative play as the whole game can be played individually or as a co-operative team. I'm currently at 60% of the trophies and I'm hoping to increase that percentage throughout the week whilst playing Fear 3 on the PlayStation 3 in-between. Here's a clip I somehow managed to do last night, hope you guys enjoy!
DNF Duel (PlayStation 4)
Trophy: Platinum #55
Last night I earned my 55th platinum trophy for DNF Duel on the PlayStation 4. Considering the game has been out for nearly a month I'm surprised nobody has written a trophy guide for it. For as good as the game is it's a shame there aren't that many people playing it, I managed to play around 125 matches with randoms via player matches whilst the remaining 175 were boosted with a guy on PSNP. It goes by a lot quicker when you can play 1 match 30 seconds a round. Overall I really enjoyed the game, there are only 2 difficult trophies one for clearing a single characters combo and challenges and the other is for defeating 100 consecutive opponents in survival course c.
I'm happy to add this platinum to my ever growing fighting game collection, I think this is my 16th fighting game platinum which is still rookie numbers compared to the likes of @FreshFromThaDeli @Yuber6969 @Copanele but I'm working on it ^^ Normally I would give the game a personal difficulty rating but I'm uncertain what I'd rate the game so I'm eager to see what future trophy guides give it. I've picked up a few fighting games such as Soul Calibur 6 and Injustice 2 Legendary Edition so I'm hoping to get round to them later this year.
But for the next few weeks I'll be focusing on Fear 3 on the PlayStation 3, once I've earned the vast majority of trophies myself and a friend will start King of Fighters 14 so I'll let you guys know nearer the time.

Well done mate! I did enjoy my time with this game and will come back to it from time to time for some online matches and completing some more combo challenges, those were the most fun part for me in this game.
Thanks for the tag but you give me too much credit when you yourself have anything but rookie numbers yourself. You have quality over quantity so keep it up. Soul Calibur 6 and Injustice 2 are two fantastic games to add to the profile later this year.
I'm pretty sure SC6 is my third most played fighting game of last generation at over 100 hours, loved the 'Create a Soul' mode, they really perfected it in SC6. Injustice 2 is such a step up from InjustASS 1, only troublemaker in that game is the Cat Call trophy which you may know about.
1. Player proficiency/experience within the genre. Skill and experience go hand in hand in my book, you cannot get one without the other. Naturally players who are more versed in souls titles will have an easier time with the content because they've most likely played through a number of them prior to playing Elden Ring. The souls tried and true formula hasn't changed much since Demon's Souls so the skills you learn in that transfer straight to Elden Ring. I've seen YouTubers spend hours upon hours being stuck on bosses like Melania and Maliketh and yet I beat both of them in under an hour and my build is far from OP. 2. How strong their build is? I've seen builds that completely annihilate a bosses health bar. If your build is optimised with purpose instead of randomly throwing stat points all over the place you'll have a much easier time with Elden Ring. 3. Solo or Co-operative play. The game is much easier to complete with a good co-op partner since they can de-aggro enemies and give the host breathing room to heal. Sure the bosses will gain more health when your in co-op but you can tackle the games hardest challenges in a completely different light. 4. The manner you approach the game. People can simply farm for runes if they wish to become overpowered or rush through areas on horseback so they can collect smithing stones to improve their weapons damage scaling to overpower the challenge presented to you. Speed runners use this tactic to get a +10 Somber Smithing weapon in no time at all then they hit Margott 3 times and he dies removing any challenge from the fight.
If your referring to the PS4 Master Collection the games in my opinion would be easier to complete than DMC because they don't require anyone's assistance on the missions since co-op was removed. They also removed the online grind from Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor's Edge. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 1 is unchanged from the PS Vita version whilst Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 had the grind 1000 kills with each weapon removed and they tweaked the missions to make them beatable on your own since nobody has beat Ultimate Ninja 1 and 3 on the PlayStation 3 version with the AI computer.
Fear 3 (Dream Score Strategy)
Over the weekend myself and a friend played through Fear 3 on Recruit difficulty to experience the game in co-op whilst knocking out a few miscellaneous trophies. Fear 3 consists of 8 acts or intervals that vary in difficulty or length. Fear 3 is a first-person shooter that brings unique gameplay elements to the table, you play as either a Pointman a typical run and gun all guns blazing kind of character with the ability to slow down time which is very handy or you can play as Fettel who I'd class as a puppet character. He has the ability to lift enemies into the air with his telekinesis whilst firing bursts of energy at your foes. His signature ability allows him to possess or take control of an enemy opponent so you have whatever loadout the enemy has.
Whilst playing as Fettel whenever you possess someone you'll have a limited amount of time in that body, however you can extend it by collecting the red orb that appears whenever you kill someone on the battlefield. There is a specific score requirement that is set for each interval that rewards you with a silver trophy however none of the guides make this abundantly clear so I will. If your playing in co-op your individual scores are combined at the end of each level, if you beat the score requirement for that mission collectively you DON'T get the trophy.
Each level has in-game challenges for you to earn that contributes to your score, once you've earned enough score for your chosen character you'll rank up earning slight buffs, the maximum level is 21. As far as I'm aware you get a point bonus worth 5,000 more fore each difficulty level you play beyond Recruit difficulty but I haven't tested this out at the time of posting. Yesterday I tried to beat the score for Interval 8 since it's the shortest level after several attempts I was victorious, since all the trophy guides I've seen are very vague in their descriptions of how to earn these trophies I'll outline my strategy to help you guys out.
Interval 8 - Requirements
Trophy: Dream Score
- 50,000 Points (I had 55,300)
- Time Taken 23 minutes 30 seconds
- Character Pointman
- Game Difficulty Recruit
- "Hurt Him" Damage the giant creep x9 @2500 a piece
- Solo Psychic links attained x5 @1500 a piece
- "Nightmare Warrior" Damage the giant creep 3 times before he vanishes x2 @2500 a piece
- "Big Spender" Drain slow-mo 3 times from full to empty @1500 a piece
- "Nightmare Ninja" Fight back the creep 3 times without getting hit 2500
- "All the Reflexes" 60 seconds of slow mo 2500
- Find the Alma Doll 5000
- "Nothin' or Double" 120 seconds of slow-mo 3500
- "Sir Camp a Lot" Use cover for 200 seconds 1500
- "Pitching a Tent" Use cover for 100 seconds 1000
- "Ghost Offender" Kill 5 ghost soldiers with the G3A3 AR 2500
Time Bonus for completing the stage was a mere 300 points
Use slow-mo to evade and shoot the creep 3 times in the introductory area after the short in-game cutscene near the start of the level for the nightmare ninja accolade. To rack up time for slow-mo as soon as you enter wade's area you can simply wait for your slow-mo meter to fill then drain it, rinse and repeat until you have both accolades. Before you fight the giant creep at the end of the level you can take cover behind the large rock in the centre of your screen to get both spend x amount of time in cover.
Hope this helps you guys out!

Ah also @LancashireLad87, if you end up loving SamSho, you might consider giving Samurai Shodown 6 a go 😁 it's kinda grindy but it will be the ultimate samsho challenge
@Copanele Whenever you want to start Street Fighter X Tekken let me know so we can boost the online together.
@Copanele Street Fighter X Tekken is a great game, only the platinum sucks a little.
@LancashireLad87 Awesome list btw. I already completed your whole 2023 list . I am also uncertain if I wanna play SF5, better said I don't know when. Anyway, nothing should be a problem for you right? I mean in terms of platinum difficulty.
DNF Duel (PS4)
Trophy: Eternity Crusher
This trophy is rewarded for completing in my opinion the hardest and tedious trophy in the game. You have to beat Survival Course C which consists of 100 opponents, after every victory you can choose to spend your points on various upgrades such as +1 attack, defence, mana recovery or guard break amongst others or you can choose to bank them up for a rainy day. The AI becomes increasingly difficult the further you progress, yes you can potentially save scum it every fight if you so desire but this trophy was a pain in the arse. I must have retried several fights at least 6/7 times before I beat them because the AI knows how to do serious combos which will quite literally melt your health bar.
I used Ghostblade because this was the character I wanted to become my main. Some of the fights such as one against Ranger on floor 60-70 was a pain and the Crusader fight on floor 88 since the AI also has several buffs to make them difficult. The final fight I recorded so you guys can see how quickly the match changed from being in complete control to almost losing. I spent 45 minutes on this floor alone because the Lone Warrior makes Nagoriyuki from Guilty Gear Strive look timid by comparison.
I'm happy to add this trophy to my collection, don't let the rarity of this trophy fool you, this was not easy to get. Possibly because I played the fights legitimately with my character, yes I save scummed but not that often. Hopefully you enjoy the video, I was very happy to clutch the victory because it could have gone either way!
@Gommes_ Yes you can but I chose to save every 5-10 matches until I hit 90 then I saved every single fight.
DragonBall FighterZ (PS4)
Platinum Trophy #54
Breaking News!!! Moments ago the lad from Lancashire secured platinum number 54 DragonBall FighterZ for the PlayStation 4. Overall the game is very simple and is undoubtedly one of the easiest fighting games I've played on my account thus far. Naturally I performed the infamous Zeni login glitch because nobody has the time to grind 20,000,000 Zeni because that's taking the piss, even 5,000,000 is excessive. Not sure who first discovered the glitch but major props to whoever did. It took me just shy of 20 hours to finish DragonBall FighterZ and I had a poultry 750,000 Zeni. Since I'm part of a Z-Union todays login bonus gave me 300,000 Zeni a time so it took me about 1.5 hours to get the "Set For Life" trophy. I'd rate the difficulty of this platinum trophy a 3/10 if it wasn't for the Zeni Grind it be a 2/10, combo challenges are a joke and the online is boost-able.
The last time I drank and gamed was not that long ago, I wasn't drunk drunk just a little pissed. I was attempting the DNF Duel combo trials for the trophy and I smashed quite a lot of trials out of the park after having 3-4 cans of cider and 3/4 bottle of wine ^^
