  1. Update! 😁 On list: I have finally finished the story to Blue Reflection Second Light. And wow, what an experience that was. That game is extremely special. Anyone who likes JRPGs... I'd highly suggest this game. I'm not striking it from my list yet because I want to get its platinum (needs a second playthrough) but that'll be a while because I loaned the game to the boyfriend. Off list: Graveyard Keeper, Story and Platinum! I was obsessed with this game the moment I started it. Imagine gameplay similar to cozy farming sims, but with dead bodies and black markets instead? As dark as that sounds, the game is big on dark humor, so its mostly played off as comedy. Still, a very addicting gameplay loop (especially if you have the DLCs)! Hyperdimension Neptunia U Action Unleased, Story and Platinum! I started this game back up just because I was missing time with my vita, and again, I ended up addicted to it. I actually had previously assumed I wouldn't like musos very much, but the mindless grinding was actually super fun, and I would be happy to play other games from the genre now.
  2. I didn't know how to play Solitaire but I knew how to play its easier cousin Spider Solitaire. I literally just laid in bed one night messing with the game until I understood what was/wasn't allowed until I got it. Maybe you guys are getting too overwhelmed with the rules? I'd honestly suggest just chilling and slowly learning it by playing it. But I'm also someone who doesn't rush the platinum, so I don't mind taking a slower approach. The game is honestly a really cool experience (as in, Telling Lies, not Solitaire lmao). But yeah I don't think its too hard if you aren't trying to rush and get yourself frustrated.
  3. Have this amazing dynamic theme on my ps4, but it sadly doesn't get much use. God I wish ps5 had themes 😒
  4. If youve got any kind of flea markets in your area, try looking at those every now and then. Found my ps3 copy at a local flea market for $15, and theres a lot of game booths with old ps3 games around mine.
  5. I feel that. I can't wait until I'm done with Uni and fully in the working world so I can at least have my afternoons free rather than dedicated to more work and studying πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’«
  6. A lot of people have pointed out that there's a difference between shit EZPZ and quality EZPZ games (ofc I agree with this) but do we have a thread with suggestions for the quality EZPZ games? I personally really like winding down with those and would like to read up on more of them. I actually do appreciate Rata regardless of some of the garbage they put out. I love RPGmaker style horror games and as far as I'm aware they're one of the few publishers putting those on PS. Red Bow and My Big Sister are the kinds of games I enjoy from them.
  7. This is a fun little checklist, I don't think I'll have many different genres platinumed but I'll come back and update this post when I get new ones πŸ™‚ 4X (explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate): Action: Persona 5 RoyalAdventure: WytchwoodArcade: Business: Graveyard KeeperCard & Board Game: Comedy: School Idol Paradise Vol 2 BiBiDrama: KotodamaEducational: Erotic: N/AFantasy: Atelier SophieFighting: Hack and slash/Beat 'em up: Hyperdimension Neptunia U Action UnleashedHistorical: Horror: Spirit Hunter: NGIndie: The Shapeshifting DetectiveKids: MOBA: N/A Music: Project Diva XMystery: Telling LiesNon-fiction: UnpackingOpen world: Party: Pinball: Platform: Astro's PlayroomPoint-and-click: Puzzle: Donut CountyQuiz/Trivia: Racing: Real Time Strategy (RTS): Role-playing (RPG): Atelier Ayesha DXRomance: Norn9 Var CommonsSandbox: Science fiction: 13 Sentinels: Aegis RimShooter: Simulator: VA-11 HALL-ASport: Stealth: Ghost of TsushimaStrategy: NexomonSurvival: Tactical: Thriller: Danganronpa 1 2 ReloadTurn-based strategy (TBS): Visual Novel: Code Realize Guardian of RebirthWarfare:
  8. Depends on the franchise. I'm in a good position money-wise in my life right now, so if something is coming out that is from a franchise I love or if I'm really interested in something new, I'll pre-order on a credit card. The credit card means I don't have to stress about how much is getting taken from my main account when the game releases, and its easy to pay off. Although, there are definitely franchises I like that I wait for sales on. For example, I love the Dark Pictures Anthology and Supermassive games. However, I don't believe that a movie-like choice based game is worth as much as the typical big blockbuster releases we get lately. I think its kind of insane that they're selling The Quarry for $70 on PS5 and I'm not pre-ordering because of that. I'm not boycotting or anything, I just genuinely don't think that price is worth it. Similar thing for Life is Strange: True Colors. Still haven't bought that physically yet.
  9. Spin 2: Game: Dead By Daylight Trophy Number: 2 Always down to play DBD, and theres plenty of trophies to get πŸ˜…
  10. Hey there! I'm JourneySilvers, a casual trophy collector who cares more about collecting than completion. I've always been interested in these checklists, but I know myself well enough to understand that I'm not the kind of person to keep their attention on a single list of games to platinum. I get bored and jump around games a lot. So, I've put some thought into a way I could participate in a checklist without boring myself or making this hobby feel like a job. Therefore... Lets make it fun and random with a Roulette! Here's how it works: I throw a ton of random games onto a roulette wheel. Some of them I've finished the story and need to clean up some trophies, some of them I've gotten distracted halfway through, and some of them are in a backlog of games that I haven't even started. I spin the wheel and get a game. Next, I have a separate wheel numbered 1 - 10. Whichever number the wheel lands on is the number of trophies I must earn in the game before spinning both wheels and starting again. If the number of trophies left in the game is smaller than the number the wheel lands on, I will have to platinum said game. Each trophy I get within a task I'll do a little writeup for. πŸ™‚ This little game is to inspire me to hunt more, and to stay on track with mini-tasks rather than having an entire daunting game to platinum in front of me. A few things... This is not timed in any kind of way. I can work on my roulette task whenever the need to do so hits. I am not barred from playing any other games while a roulette task is underway. The idea is for this to be casual and fun. Its meant to inspire and give myself some direction. If anyone else wants to do something similar, feel free to share your own tasks or talk about the trophies here. 😁 Spin 1: Game: Horizon Zero Dawn Trophy Number: 6 Horizon is a game I enjoy but have left many times. I haven't finished it, so earning six trophies shouldn't be too bad. πŸ‘
  11. Spin 1 Results Horizon Zero Dawn | Trophies: 6 Crashed the Eclipse network Infiltrated the Eclipse battle camp and crashed their network. ~ A story based trophy. I pretty much launched the game in the middle of this mission. Struggled a bit to remember controls and got my ass handed to me multiple times because of it, but overall it was pretty fast. All Recon machines killed Killed at least one of every type of Reconnaissance machine. ~ I honestly had no idea this trophy existed. I was running around doing some side quests to re-familiarize myself with the game, and ended up getting this one out of the blue. First Vantage found Found and accessed a Vantage datapoint. ~ I actually never quite understood the collectibles in Horizon, so I figured now was my chance. I spent a good few hours fast traveling around and picking up collectibles I had never understood or bothered with before. To my surprise, I had never even fumbled upon a vantage point before, so I got the trophy for my first one. Headshot 30 human enemies Killed 30 human enemies by landing headshots on them. ~ I started deliberately going for headshots in order to work my way up to this trophy. Little did I know, I must've already done a ton of that in my past gameplay because I got the trophy after one run in with some enemy soldiers on a side quest. Good work, past me! Reached level 25 Reached player level 25. ~ Self explanatory, reached level 25. Discovered the truth Discovered the truth of Zero Dawn. ~ Annnnd finally, another story based trophy to get me at six trophies. Easily the best part of the game so far too, what an incredible scene at the end of the mission. I LOVED getting to finally meet a certain character in person. -~-~-~- A few thoughts, but this little idea is already paying off. I don't think I would've picked Horizon back up anytime soon if not for this, and I'm really glad I did. I forgot how gorgeous the game's environments were and how much I liked Alloy. That being said... I'm already feeling a bit burnt out from playing it all day lol. Open world games, as amazing as they are, can exhaust me pretty quickly. Grabbing that last trophy felt like the perfect break point for me in all honesty.
  12. Hyperdimension Neptunia U Action Unleashed ~~~ Platinum Action Unleashed! ~~~ Maxing out the lily ranks was the only rough part with this platinum, everything else was a blast! I have a new appreciation for muso games now... and the trophy icons for this game are just gorgeous 😍
  13. Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed All 35 Trophies β€’ 2/10 1x 50h 30th May 2022 β€’ Platinum in 4 years, 5 months Thought this would be an easy one to get done this month, and for the most part it was. Except for one dang trophy. Maxing out all the lily ranks between characters took so much longer than expected and was the sole reason I almost didn't get this one done in time. Watched two full anime seasons while grinding this out and was still no where close to being done lol. But that aside, loved this game! Didn't think I was into musos until I happened to pick this back up on my vita and fell in love with it. I now have a new genre to explore. πŸ‘
  14. Tried this game out recently based on someones suggestion, and I've been enjoying this game a lot! However, despite loving time management games, I seem to be pretty bad at this one. I'm in the second world and I've already had the guild pull me out of debt the max number of times. Even when I try to make specific weapons with specific attributes for certain heroes, they only want to pay like ~200 for them. Everyone seems to have an easy time with this game, so I feel like I'm screwing up something fundamental. Anyone have any advice for the best way to manage activities? Or just to be better at the game in general?
  15. Graveyard Keeper ~~~ Collect All Trophies ~~~ This game is incredibly fun and addictive. I don't always go for DLC trophies but I'm definitely going to revisit this for the DLC after a bit. And I'll be buying any future DLC releases for sure πŸ‘
  16. Sticking with the basic tier for now. There's not a whole lot in the upgraded tiers that interests me, but maybe if they spice it up in the future I'd upgrade. I hope they plan on continuing to expand on these plans.
  17. A small update, all off list: Unpacking: finished the story and got the platinum πŸ‘ŒπŸ» I almost bought this game on the switch before I realized it was coming to PS, so I'm glad I waited. It's very short and an easy plat, but I really enjoyed my time with it for what it was. I do feel like $20 might be a bit expensive for how quickly it's finished though πŸ€” I think it took me 3 or 4 hours? Wytchwood: finished the story and got the platinum! Another short game and easy plat (~10 hours) but WOW I got addicted to it. Super fun adventure/puzzle game where the main mechanic is gathering ingredients, crafting items, and learning which items fulfill the quest requirements or exploit an enemy weakness. The artstyle is so beautiful, and the writing is often witty and funny. Main story revolves around stealing souls of evil characters. 😎 Really loved it.
  18. I played Man of Medan and Little Hope, went in to House of Ashes expecting it to be the worst of the three (idk, the war setting seemed like it was going to be dry and boring to me since history makes me snooze). But I was very wrong. Ended up loving House of Ashes leagues more than the other two. I thought the mix between action and horror was done perfectly, and they actually improved (imo) their storytelling by quite a bit.
  19. Wytchwood ~~~ Platinum Potion ~~~ This game is such a great indie experience. I picked this up in a sale a while back, finally got around to trying it last Friday night. Ended up absolutely addicted and played it the entirety of Saturday (and a bit of the next morning) and finished it up. Its only around ~10 hours and the platinum is guaranteed so long as you beat the game. Running around, foraging for ingredients, exploiting enemy weaknesses, and crafting the solutions to the stories problems was a blast for me. I almost got a bit tired of having to run back through areas to collect ingredients every time I picked up a new mission, except for the fact that the game is so beautiful I ended up just vibing and enjoying the whole thing. The writing is also pretty funny as well. Totally recommend this if you want a short indie, an easy platinum, and if you enjoy the idea of an adventure\crafting game.
  20. I also recently went back to my Vita, and I've honestly been having a lot of fun. I don't think the PS5 has done anything to me there. ... what is HAS done, however, is made me notice frame drops in Nintendo games I love. I used to never notice frame drops, like I was completely obtuse to tell the difference between fps levels. Now it actively bothers me when I play something like Rune Factory 5 or Story of Seasons, which aren't even that strenuous of games (performance wise) to be begin with. I do get used to it after a while of playing, but boy does it bother me a lot more now.
  21. Lets go! Excited for this. Time to get that 100% back 😁 I kinda missed playing this game daily tbh
  22. Tbf, I was thinking of the gaming community in general. Everyone I've had direct communication with in this hobby hates FIFA. Figured it was something people only bought and played if they were huge fans of it and not much else. If I'm wrong and the majority love FIFA, then my bad I suppose. Β―\_(ツ)_/Β― Whoops, adding you to my response as well. Genuinely didnt think people was so interested in FIFA tbh
  23. I just hope this turns out to be something meaningful... would be great, but companies have a habit of doing the bare minimum in most cases. I'll be very happy if they do end up preserving games and porting more stuff.
  24. I'm actually pretty interested in two of the games... I've been looking at Tribes of Midgard for a while now and Curse of the Dead Gods sounds like something I'd love to try. But let's be real, FIFA is straight up an insult. Why do they still hand out sports games knowing that the majority of the community wants nothing to do with them? All in all though, it's a better month for me than the last few have been.
