  1. Congrats on the progress so far & finishing your recent games. Awesome job! As for your 100th Plat recommendation, I like the idea of something that you either enjoy or something that is insanely hard. I decided this recently as well & went for something I enjoy (has a good trophy tile too), since I'm already working on an insanely difficult DLC trophy. The ones I recognised that were suggested for you were Super Meat Boy: Forever or Nuclear Throne & both would look really good. I've heard Nuclear Throne is extremely difficult, but then Super Meatboy: Forever is too & has quite a nice trophy tile lol.
  2. Has an incredible trophy cabinet with extremely challenging feats including Super Meat Boy, Capcom Arcade Cabinet & Vanquish (planning to do at some point), all of which require a huge amount of skill, patience & persistence. Awesome list!
  3. There's usually about one or two Delta Daily events a month, so there should be one coming up soon. The last one I tried was Monaro, Australia since it's a really good one to do. It's definitely one of the best racing games in recent times with challenging DLC, which is the best part of the game.
  4. I thought I'd reply to you here too. I used to set quite a few records on this game & have done it many times. What the guys said above is correct especially about the single races. The hardest events are Chenghuo Project, Sebenco Climb & Sol 2 since the first two races are the most difficult track layouts in general whilst the last one doesn't have a useful shortcut like the other tracks. You usually just need to win the first few races but it's possible to win almost all of them anyway so tournaments are always easier than single races. Also you've done racing games much harder than this so it'll just be a nice challenge in comparison. Not sure how far you are through but I'll share this since I have speedrun the campaign quite a lot of times. The ship I recommend overall would be Assegai since it is extremely reliable & was the most effective when I did speedrun the campaign in a few hrs. I also used Assegai when I set records as well. I know it's not a quick reply after we spoke yesterday but wanted to let you know that you'll find this game quite a fun challenge rather than what the hardest racers put you through.
  5. That's cool, I have been getting through Flatout recently but yet to go back to continue it. I did a few of the hardest events & it definitely pushes you to the limit. The only other ones that were like that were NFS Prestige & GT5 Vettel although both of those are much easier to play whilst having shorter events. The events in NFS Prestige are the most frustrating of all the racers, whilst the two hard GT5 Vettel ones are up there with these games. However Flatout is still the one that prepares you best for Assetto since it's slightly harder than those whilst pushing you to the limit much more. There are some youtube videos for the Assetto hotlaps with some setups that you can try out, however it's important to try to make it as comfortable you can. The youtube videos will also be helpful for reference points as the hotlaps have extremely tight times & you'll be able to know what sectors you need to improve on. It's just going to take an extreme amount of skill & determination to get it done.
  6. It's much harder to play than both of those since it requires a lot more precision & practice. There are a lot of cars to adjust to whilst a good setup is extremely important since the smallest change can be the difference. I remember reading your posts when you went for Flatout & you eventually got that done. You can definitely do it as you have done two of the toughest racing games possible. It's just going to require a huge amount of determination since it's the hardest racing game, but you have very good preparation going into it since Flatout is the next hardest. Also quite a lot who have done the game have spent over 20hrs on a few of the hotlaps since it takes a long time to master each one. It'll be normal to even take more than 30hrs on some of the hotlaps so just keep going & you will eventually get it done.
  7. I'm currently doing the GT5 Vettel challenges on another account as I wanted to try to do these for a long time & have been able to jump into these. I never did GT5 originally as it was just something I never played. So many people have told me about the Vettel challenges & that even on a controller it would be a nice challenge. I also like fast paced racers where you must react very fast & precise. Since this is something that has been known to be very difficult especially on a controller (just like Dirt Rally 2.0 Flatout). I really had to give this ago. I've had a lot of people request me to attempt this, so it's nice to have a chance at trying this out. I started yesterday on Monza & after a few hrs I got gold with a time of 2.03.700. I think I was on course for gold about 15 to 20 times on runs as I was ahead at the final corner but I either braked too late or accelerated too early, so I went flying off lol. I also had about 10 to 15 runs where I messed up & carried on but kept getting times like 2.04.300, 2.04.200 or even a 2.04.097 lol. I'm at the point now where I can consistently be comfortable on Monza, although I guess it was good to have the practice regardless. I will see how I go on Nurburgring & Suzuka. I know Suzuka will be very tough so I wanna get Nurburgring done first. After I've done these I'll have to go back to Dirt Rally 2.0 Flatout.
  8. Even though this is from awhile ago, I wanted to join in & say congrats on finishing it. Nice going on that first Vettel too. I did one of the GT5 Vettel challenges so far on a different account. I will hopefully get around to GT5 eventually & just go for whatever trophies I can. Congrats again!
  9. Finally completed the Finland 1992 Flatout event in Dirt Rally 2.0!

    So far the hardest thing I've done in the game!

  10. The GOTY Edition is currently 75% off in the EU store. I think if you started just before yesterday then you would have but it seems there aren't enough events currently if you start now.
  11. I just saw this & am glad you have a trophy checklist for yourself dude! Nice going on all the progress! I remember you telling me about DJ Max Respect a few months ago. I'm sure you'll get it whenever you go back to it. DJ Max Respect seems like one of the most effort to get done. I'm been thinking of doing a trophy checklist for myself as I've been trying to go for certain games. I enjoy reading these types of ones anyway. Great work!
  12. Nice to see some familiar names here. I'm just posting to say that I've started Flatout today after doing Pedal To The Metal (15hrs) last week as well as a hard Assetto Hotlap called Clear Ahead (28hrs) in that same week. So far that was currently the hardest thing I've ever completed in a racing game. I did both with a controller without traction, which was very difficult but also worth it. I will go back & do another hard Assetto Hotlap very soon but I've decided to focus on this game first instead. I'll be using a controller to try & do as much as I can without traction depending on how doable it is. After spending 28hrs & 15hrs on Clear Ahead & Pedal To The Metal respectively I'm up for the challenge of finally doing Flatout. Hopefully I can get through this. If there's any tips that might help which aren't very known then it would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
  13. Just got Gold on Clear Ahead in Assetto Corsa!

    Glad to have finally done that one!

      I've heard it's easier than Crash Team Racing & Wipeout but not too far off so it's around that kind of difficulty. It seems like you only need to do one lap for the ghosts that you have to beat so you need pretty good laps. I do plan on doing it very soon so I can let you know more. It does seem quite easy to play & considering you've done Driveclub I honestly can't imagine anything being harder than Venom Hotlap. I actually put Driveclub in the same group as these games personally especially as it's more skillbased.

      Ah yes, Venom Hotlap 2. One Man One Engine from the AMG pack in Driveclub was also difficult.

       

      From what I heard the time trials where you need to beat the ghosts in Sonic Transformed is the hardest thing you need to do for the platinum. I also heard you can reduce the grind and make it easier for you if you have four controllers use up four slots in a race, but I can't confirm this.

      Yep the fact you've done those would be more than enough preparation for that game as it's much easier to play & everyone who has done it makes me believe it's of similar difficulty. I'm not too sure of the grind but it didn't sound like it was a very long game. I should really play it as it is one of my upcoming games.

  14. I was meant to post here awhile ago whilst you were doing your other games but I never got around to it. Nice to see that you have started this instead as it's sometimes nice to change game especially if it's a new game that is well known to be hard. It let's you not miss out on it. I hope you continue to get through this. It really sounds like this one is living up to the challenge. I'm debating on whether I should do something similar as I've been on a racing project where I hope to eventually finish all the hardest racers possible or just general ones that I'm yet to play, so I've got quite a few on the go. As some might know I'm currently doing one of the hardest hotlaps in Assetto & have been on it for a few days as using a controller is a challenge on top of what is already a ridiculously difficult game to finish. I'm quite close to a few of the hotlaps so maybe I should do something similar where I can post my progress. I really enjoy reading this thread as it's great to follow someone's progress on notoriously difficult games where it feels like a journey. I'm sure knowing that lots of people read this thread is already huge motivation for you. Keep up the good work!
  15. I'm just going to post here as I did in the other thread in case some still get a bit confused with the best way to get this trophy. I started the game earlier today & read stuff where some said that you need to beat a top 30 leaderboard time. It seems that most of the top 30 times have a ghost that you can select, whilst the rest don't seem to have one. It has been mentioned before but you can just set a slow lap time & beat it after it updates your time on the leaderboard. Just make sure to select the "personal ghost" option before you start. Hopefully this clears it up for anyone still trying to do this trophy.
