Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite (PlayStation 4)
Trophy: Platinum #58
(PSNP Rarity 1.24%/Sony 0.10%)
Breaking News!!! Earlier today the lad managed to secure his 58th platinum trophy Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite on the PlayStation 4. After playing both Marvel Vs Capcom 3 and Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 I was curious to see how bad this game is, so I booted it up. So, I started with the combo trials since they're generally the platinum blocker in the majority of fighting games. Your task is to clear all trials with 5 characters for the trophy. I cleared Hulk, Iron Man, Ultron, Ghost Rider and Zero.
But the worst part of the game by far is the stupid online requirements specifically reaching Rank 10. You begin your journey at Rank 14 which doesn't sound too far off Rank 10 but my god it's a grind. The online is boost-able with a friend but if you run into a random and you quit out of the game you lose a ton of progress therefore you should play during the early hours of the day or in the mornings.
The rest of the game isn't that bad honestly, the trophy guide states a 20-hour platinum journey if you've played Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3. The offline content I blitzed through thanks to my previous fighting game experience. I do agree with the sentiments of @FreshFromThaDeli and @Copanele the game isn't as good as its predecessors, I enjoyed the combo trials but that was about it to be honest.
As you can see, I managed to platinum the game in 3 hours 45 minutes gameplay time, not too shabby for a 35-year-old. If I was to rate the game based on my personal experience, I'd give the difficulty of the game a 4/10 if you boost to ranked 10, the trials aren't too bad if you've played harder fighting games. For a newcomer you might struggle with this one.
I'm happy to add this game to my existing collection, the platinum trophy is now my 5th rarest trophy which is pretty sweet. Big thanks to @Copanele for helping me with the ranked matches for that final push towards the platinum!
