  1. Platinum 117 - Control

     

    It's funny how some of the best games I've played are the ones that I for some reason put on the back burner and decide to pick up a year or two later, and this is absolutely one of those games. This is a game that from watching footage of it, seemed like a pretty standard third person shooter game with some sort of unique qualities to it. I kept coming back to the idea of playing it over the years, not being able to wave off that there was something about the game that was intriguing, but I just couldn't put my finger on what it was. You really don't truly get an understanding for how the game is until you play it.

     

    Well I decided to start playing it a few weeks ago, and I very quickly realized this was not a standard third person shooter, and it was going to be one of the best games I have played in years. It's very rare that I play something that feels like nothing I have ever played before, but this was one of those games. It's also very rare when a developer nails pretty much everything about a games "tone". That being the visuals, the lighting, the colors, the level design, the sounds, effects, even down to how the text appears on screen, and this game absolutely nailed it in all aspects. It's a sort of jaw dropping experience when you're playing a game and it's obvious that the developers were just firing on all cylinders when creating the game.

     

    What they did with this game was truly fascinating. Unlike many games today, this game has no "filler" content, everything seems like it had many hours of careful consideration and planning to make sure it matched the world, the story, and most importantly to make sure it was fun. I could go on forever about this game, but I guess I'll finish by saying that it's very rare that I get the platinum trophy for a game and I want to keep going, but that's exactly how I feel with this game - I want to keep playing it! Luckily there's some DLC trophies waiting for me to earn them.

     

    I highly recommend this game for anyone who is even remotely interested, it is pretty incredible.

      Congrats mango! I finished this game just recently and pretty much agree with everything. I know I've said this a bajillion times in my status updates but the Ashtray Maze is the best thing in that game. 

       

      What I like about control is that it's not your conventional 3rd person shooter in that the story is told in a different way. I had to read a bazillion documents and watch lots of recordings to piece together what was going on haha. 

       

      I found navigation to be totally fine tbh and barely got lost. It helps tremendously to follow the signs built in game as opposed to the map itself because they have arrows telling you where to go. Having said that, I also agree that level design was superb. The oldest house was a joy to explore. 

       

      I also played it on the ps5 which was the best way to experience it obviously on PlayStation consoles. Loading times were super short and the framerate was buttery smooth at performance mode. 

       

      Anyway, I hope you like the DLC. Don't want to sound like a downer but I thought they were alright 😅

  2. Quite a strong showing! The intro was pretty cringe and there were a few "meh" games but the great games more than made up for that in my opinion. Can't wait to see more of Spider-Man 2, Gran Turismo 7, God of War Ragnarok, Project EVE, and more! Also I couldn't help but laugh when seeing the "2023" release date for Spider-Man 2, while cool to know it's coming I think the reveal is a tad bit early there. Also the GTA V PS5 announcement... That was disappointing. We already knew they are re-releasing the same game on a third console which is just kind of a big sigh and the graphical improvements are pretty underwhelming to say the least. I will say it's a smart move for them to break off GTA Online into its own title in anticipation for GTA VI which I assume will release in 2045
  3. Platinum 116 - Cyberpunk 2077

     

    This was a game that I was looking forward to for years, and there were places where it delivered and other places where it just needed more time. This game had a really enjoyable story, a fantastic city, and great characters. That being said, there were moments where it's clear another year of development would have really made certain things better, or more polished, and more realized.

     

    My entire time playing was on PS5, so thankfully I didn't experience many bugs or gltiches, however I did experiencing some freezing around the time the game released. I also hated completing all the "gigs and NCPD Scanner Hustles" trophies in the game, hundreds of filler "side mission" where you ran a spot, killed everyone there, and collected mostly useless items from a box to finish the mission. This is the kind of stuff I hate in open world games, and requiring trophies for it is kind of annoying. It could've definitely been worse though! Needless to say those were the trophies I put off until last

     

    It'll be interesting to see how CD Projekt continues to work on this game. I think they should have delayed it a year and made it next-gen only, but for what it was, I still really enjoyed it! Hopefully they release some interesting DLC later on for the game. I also hope to see a more fully realized sequel at some point in the future.

  4. I am truly impressed, you guys really went above and beyond here
  5. It's funny, every now and then I venture upon an account with none of these games and each of their platinums took a normal to impressive amount of time to get and my reaction is "wow, this profile is great!" when just 5 years ago it would have been a completely standard profile We really have come a long way
  6. Yet another daily set of 2 - 8 uninspired cartoony thumbnail images with severely overly-saturated colors for the same game, I just wonder what the complex and well thought out trophy format for this game could be...
  7. Haha congratulations on winning PSNProfiles bingo!
  8. Really cool to see! Was listening to episode 162 of the Sacred Symbols and Colin started talking about the trophy an hour in
  9. Done! As someone who has played this game it's definitely important to point this out as it saves a lot of time for sure. I didn't tag it as missable though, because well technically it's not a missable trophy, just a massive pain if you save it for last
  10. Check if the PS4 game is marked as hidden on your PS3
  11. It's possible for a game to show as unhidden on PS4 but still marked as hidden when viewing it on PS3. Try checking the game on the console the list is hidden on (for example if it's a PS3 list, check that game on PS3). Note on PS3 that if the box does *not* have a checkmark, that means it's hidden! See the first page of this thread for information on checking your games on all consoles. PSN can be a bit buggy with hidden games, but eventually after messing with it a bit they can become unhidden - hopefully this helps!
  12. I am so happy to see the trophy list layout finally fixed, the current layout for trophies is the most terrible thing I've ever used lmao
  13. Don't play games you don't enjoy. In the words of the legendary Reggie from Nintendo: "If it's not fun, why bother?"
  14. The guide is still there at the link you provided, though the page in the first image is what you see when viewing someone's earned trophies on their profile. You're on the trophy list page instead of the guide page on that first image. Either way, this may be a question for PST.orgs forums rather than ours, they'd probably be able to help you out with their own website better than we would
  15. The Vita really is going out with a bang huh? That bang you're hearing is the garbage bag hitting the side of the dumpster as you throw it in
