  1. Maybe someday I'll get around to finally buckling down and earning THAT trophy, but as for now I will just continue to have a single one missing on the list Congrats on the completion! I remember having a blast going for the plat in this game, and in 3 remake as well! Wish I could experience them for the first time again.
  2. I'm a bit late to this post but, welcome to the checklist part of the forums! It's always nice to see new faces. You've got some impressive completions! And also some games in your backlog that I need to finish as well. Looking forward to reading your thoughts on them :3
  3. I totally meant to reply to this, ugh I'm the worst lol. Thanks so much for the kind words, I really appreciate it! ❤️ I might actually take you up on that whenever I get around to Uncharted 4 again
  4. I have tried that after some suggestions from people, but still couldn't get it to pop 😭 maybe someday I'll figure it out.
  5. Sure thing :3 I got a glitch that happens to some people with the "Full House" trophy in the first game. You have to kill like 5 enemies with each of the different crossbow bolt types, but apparently the game thinks I should have the two extra preorder bonus bolts, which I don't. I have looked into this so much and most people say they eventually got it one day if they just kept killing things with all the different bolts they did have, but I have done it so many times and.. nothing >.< I am starting to think it will never plat this game bc of this glitch. Ugh.
  6. Hey there! I actually lurked your profile the other day and was super impressed! I would be willing to give the RE6 multiplayer another go for someone else's sake just let me know if you're ever feeling up to it c: I absolutely recommend both Evil Within games! The trophies are actually pretty fun to go for, assuming that annoying glitch I've had to deal with doesn't get you too lol 😭
  7. Thanks for the kind words 😊 looks like I'll be seeing another specialist soon and having my meds adjusted so hopefully all goes well from now on. Oh noooo, so many people have told me I should play this game haha. Guess I've been wary of it for a good reason. Truly the most pointless and cruel trophy I've seen on a list in a long time lmao. I think they knew multiplayer kinda sucked and this trophy was their way of trying to force a good chunk of the gaming community to put time into it. Thanks for the advice! I'll certainly give that a go when I get back to this game. I've always been really good at Project Diva so I was absolutely stoked when I saw this game (which I've heard good things about) was "free". You bring up another good point I forgot to mention.. The fact that nearly all of the songs are DLC and if you don't want to drive yourself insane playing the same couple of songs over and over again, you're going to have to invest a lot of money into it.. If I end up getting decent at the game while using a different screen and end up really liking it, maybe I'll eventually spend some money on it, but not right now that's for sure haha. A good friend of mine who has done Mercs both before and after the DLC released said the same thing, so that makes me a bit more optimistic! I know I'll still have trouble navigating the factory though >.< I do think I will work on all the other trophies I'm missing in the meantime, bc the DLC reignited my interest in the game! Yeah, I have a feeling I may just be getting all overwhelmed and psyching myself out once I get into the higher numbers and screwing myself over by panicking >.< I know this is one I can get someday with enough work and practice, but for now I do not feel like it haha. Major props to you and anyone else here who has done it, bc that is one of the most daunting trophies on my list imo. BUT I was also pretty sure I'd never fully 100% the N Sane Trilogy bc of the time trial on Stormy Ascent and then I sat and played it one night until I finally did it and it was like it was nothing when it finally happened. I used to have the willpower to just buckle down and DO things even if I hated it and lately I just haven't had that anymore, probably bc I've been in a bit of an emotional funk due to being ill. I stopped caring as much about my completion percentage this past year and started playing new games more often and I've had more fun with that. I do think it's about time I get back into hunting though. Ain't that the truth! The funniest part is that I got 100% synch in The Da Vinci Disappearance fairly easily lmao. I am personally having a lot of trouble with all of the ones in the main game that demand you "do not be detected" especially the one where you have to try not to be detected while chasing down a screaming lady >.> It's a great game tbh, very wholesome and kinda feels like a newer Disney movie. Also you can put hats on the cute little spirits that you befriend, and isn't that what life is all about? uwu It's so unfortunate that this trophy is required for the plat, bc it's a great game ;~; Oh, for sure! I am looking forward to it though! I've already invested quite some time, but barely made a dent haha. Thanks man, that means a lot! I doubt you'll make the same mistake I did, as it was completely avoidable and entirely my own fault X'D Thanks for that! I actually would like to see all the outcomes before I decide what I want my characters canon ending to be so that helps haha. *finger guns* It's actually pretty fun when you have someone to co-op with, but alone it is very tedious 😩 thankfully I have a good friend who is a huge RE fan and always wants to play lol. I hate online multiplayer trophies though, regardless of who I'm playing with, so I have no idea when I'll end up doing that part. Huge props to anyone who even plays sports games, bc I cannot be bothered and don't even want to imagine how grueling the plats probably are. I think Tony Hawk games and maybe some racers and dirt bike games are as far as I'll dip my toes into the sports genre. Excessive DLC ruins everything, especially since it's never games you're actually super invested in that you'd be excited about DLC for that do it lol. I'm glad you enjoyed, haha. And don't apologize bc I enjoyed reading everyone's lists a lot c:
  8. What's this?? Billie updating her thread?? For the first time since July?? yeah...hi I have been absent and neglecting this thread for way too long now. I've completed a few games since I last updated here, and I will probably write them up one at a time and take it slow so I don't get overwhelmed. Those of you in the Discord server are probably aware that I have had quite a few health scares this past year, and I actually had another one last night that made me want to do more with my life while I'm around, even if it's just something as pointless in the eyes of society as updating a PSNP thread. Some of you may have also noticed that I've been archiving some of my old videos and livestreams too. I don't know if I will ever stream or create content again, but I am trying to show my anxiety who is the boss here and not be worried about what random people I don't even like might comment on my harmless videos about games >.> Anyway, in the meantime, I had a great idea for a thread update that is on theme, as it has to do with my backlog. If any of you wanna do this too, it might be fun for us to read each others, and very humbling lol. Basically, I thought I would write up a list of excuses as to why I am actively being lazy about and directly avoiding finishing some games. Every single one of you would be way better at this than I am with my lack of motivation for writing, but I still think it'll be fun, so here goes. Resident Evil Village: Easy. Mercenaries. I don't know how I managed the first one, but I don't think I will EVER be able to S Rank the 2nd version of Heisenberg's Factory. Not because it's even hard combat-wise, no, it's bc I have the sense of direction of a slice of bread and I find the Factory completely confusing and disorienting no matter how much I run around in it or how many maps I look at. Every time I am about to do it, I either get turned around at the last second, or an enemy behaves differently than normal and makes me lose my combo. My doctors said to avoid stress lol, so for now, I'll work on the other trophies, but get to that part in the future. Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Honestly, I plan to get to this soon. I only recently finally played it and I am still letting how amazing it was sink in, and I don't want to lose out on any of the happiness I got from it by frustrating myself with Hard Mode just yet, but I will probably get to that one early next year. Portal Knights: My ex wanted me to get this to play with them, and back then I was really inexperienced with RPG style games and thought it was boring, but I have played a lot of them since back then so I decided to give it a try a couple of weeks back and actually had a blast. It honestly became a comfort game to me while I had covid, and I foresee myself going for the plat in the future with much more enthusiasm than I previously had about the idea, which used to make me groan. I don't think I am invested enough as of yet to purchase the DLC though, so even if I were to get the plat, I'm not sure when I'd finally get around to going for the full 100%. Heavy Rain: *ANGRY SCREECHING BANSHEE NOISES* if you know, you know. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2: I love this game so much. But this one will be a plat I get WAY down the line when I have the willpower within me to sit and do nothing but play this game specifically until I'm done. I never get very good, but every time I don't play for a while, I come back to it to find that the tiny amount of skill I acquired last time has completely disappeared. I can't even rack up a 1 million point combo to bail. Bloodborne: My friend was the one who finally forced me to play this, and while I do enjoy it, I have a lot less fun with it when they're not around to make the experience more lighthearted lol. I will take my time with this one and try to get better at it on my own. I actually survive just fine in the world if I'm not in a boss fight, but that's kinda the whole point of the game and I have a lot of trouble with them ;~; everyone point and laugh at the filthy casual. Stardew Valley: I will probably never plat this game. By choice. Even if I could beat the mini game without dying for that UR trophy, this is a major comfort game for me and I just don't want to choose the side of the corporation and destroy the cute little community center and town. Maybe on a different save one day, but for now I just don't think that would make me feel great. The Child's Sight: I don't know what to do about this one. It was on sale for like 25 cents and looked spooky, so I bought it. Then I found out it's some weird FNaF style game that just involves looking around a lot and messing with different stuff so the monster doesn't get you. Not really my kinda thing, nor is it something I'm good at, but I probably just need some practice. Either way, not interested at the moment. Fallout 4: I'm at the part where I have to decide the fate of the Commonwealth and take sides, and I like everyone a lot and don't know what to do lmao. That's literally it. Resident Evil 5: I HAVE to play this in co-op with a friend or I just hate it. I don't know why. Assassins Creed Brotherhood: Some of the memories I need to get 100% synch for make me want to throw my controller through the window. Definitely not a great idea for someone who needs to de-stress according to medical staff. Resident Evil Revelations: This one isn't really my fault. Raid mode is required for some of the trophies and I can't do that through the streamed version, and it's the PS3 version of the game on PS Plus so.. buying the PS4 version would just give me a new trophy list. I think I will actually have to get a PS3 to plat this game 😭 Uncharted 4: A Thief's End: The Survival stages. On Crushing?? Nah. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn: I'm broke 😅 Detroit: Become Human: You want me to murder the android stripper lesbians?? For a trophy?? Pass. Blair Witch: I just don't want to see the poor dog suffer again. Kena: Bridge of Spirits: I had such a hard time with the combat on this game on normal difficulty, I am absolutely dreading playing it on the highest difficulty. Especially since it's been so long. Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition: Reach level 60 in Multiplayer.. Enough said. Trove: This game is weird and difficult to understand, and you kinda HAVE to interact with others online, and it's full of obnoxious children. Another game I never wanted to play that only made it onto my list of games bc my ex insisted on it, although unlike Portal Knights, I still have absolutely zero desire to go for this plat, even though it would become my rarest trophy. Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD: I wanted one of the newer Monkey Ball games SO badly bc I grew up playing Monkey Ball on the GameCube and those are some of my best early gaming memories. I think this one was originally formatted for the Wii? You can certainly tell, bc these are the most unbearable controls ever, and really don't seem to be made with a PlayStation controller in mind. Even if I can eventually beat the game, I REFUSE to clear that stupid fucking unplayable Declathon thing THIRTY SIX TIMES. Excuse me?? No. Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time: I feel like they didn't have humans in mind when making this game. Just those really cool professional gamers that seem to be able to do everything perfectly in one or two tries and have already uploaded walkthroughs a week before the game is even released for the rest of us. Just bc you can put a million different confusing new mechanics in a game, doesn't mean you should. I will never plat this game. Really fucking sucks too bc there hasn't been a Crash Bandicoot game for the PS4 that I haven't 100 percented until now. Resident Evil 6: I have the plat, but I am putting off the multiplayer stuff bc I just don't really have anyone to do it with. Love Live! School Idol Festival ~after school activity~ Wai-Wai!Home Meeting!!: Ignore how weeby the name of this rhythm game is, please lmao. I think I need a way smaller screen to play this properly. It's a lot different than Project Diva, and the set up is hard to follow on a full size TV. I think I could manage it a lot better on a phone or something. Or maybe so much Project Diva (the superior rhythm game series) has just made me incapable of playing any others well. Everybody's Gone to the Rapture: I really liked this game, but it seems like something that is going to be so tedious and boring to trophy hunt when I already know the whole story. Also, it's not the greatest game for my mental health. It really amped up my feelings of depression, anxiety, and isolation. Minecraft: Getting the plat was fun, but I am at a loss as to how to 100% it when there doesn't really seem to be an option to do the multiplayer games unless you remotely downgrade to the old version, and even then I can't seem to figure out how to start an actual game with anyone, I just end up in an empty stage wandering around. Fallout Shelter: My partner accidentally started this on my account instead of theirs a few years ago, got a bronze trophy, then realized what they'd done. They offered to try to platinum it for me since it was their mistake and they know it isn't my kind of thing, but I declined bc that just isn't my style. I definitely have no interest in it at the moment though. Hamster Ball: Pretty fun, and a lot like Monkey Ball. Those time trials though? Yikes.. Outlast 2: This game expects me to complete it on the hardest difficulty, with no saves and no deaths, without changing the battery in the camera that runs out within minutes and allows me to see? I was on a bit of a high from finishing the original Outlast and its DLC on insane mode a couple years ago, and really thought I could do anything. I tried this over and over again, daily, for months. It is not like the original Outlast. There is RNG based shit that can screw you over halfway through your run that is totally out of your control, enemies randomly become unpredictable, your character sometimes glitches out of the map (which counts as a death apparently) AND I will never forgive the devs for their 20+ minute UNSKIPPABLE cutscenes. It's just broken. It's a very good game if you aren't worried about trophies but if you are it is a NIGHTMARE. I will plat this someday out of spite, but back then I was getting tons of practice and still couldn't do it so I don't even want to think about it now. Silent Hill 2 HD: They removed the HD Collection from PS Plus. Sad day. Another thing I may need a PS3 to complete. 2064: Read Only Memories: As fun as it might be to be rude to Jess after she was a dick to me my entire last playthrough while I never stuck up for myself, I am really not looking forward to being mean to Turing for some other endings /: The Evil Within: This is one of my favorite survival horror games ever made. Too bad I will never platinum it bc of a very simple glitched trophy that should take like 10 mins. I am one of the lucky people that the "Full House" trophy refuses to pop for. It requires you to kill like 5 enemies with each different type of crossbow bolt. I have done this COUNTLESS times by this point. I know I have. I am not the only person this has happened to. Apparently it glitches bc it can't fathom that some people don't have the two extra preorder bonus crossbow bolt types. It thinks you should have them, so it is trying to account for that. Most people just insist you should keep killing things with every type of crossbow bolt over and over and someday it will probably pop, but this makes me so annoyed and angry. I will probably finish the game on Akumu mode before I get this stupid little trophy. Resident Evil 2 Remake: I've got one trophy left for this, and that is "Hell of a Sheriff". I really don't understand how this is only an "Uncommon" trophy. It's so difficult, and if I get to 97 or so kills one more time and then die I might rip all my hair out. Well.. That was cathartic and actually gave me a good list of games to work on for the moment while I let myself take a much needed break from some others, and continue to put some off even longer lol. It looks like for now I will put my focus into the following: - Wheel of Fortune and UNO, which are easy and I don't know why I haven't finished them sooner - Man of Medan - Child of Light - Yooka Laylee and the Impossible Lair - Skyrim - The Evil Within 2 - BioShock - Assassins Creed Revelations - LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 - God of War - Uncharted 2, 3 and Lost Legacy - Dauntless - Limbo - The Sims 4 - The Last of Us - Styx: Shards of Darkness - Skully - Extreme Exorcism - Resident Evil 4 - Resident Evil 7: Biohazard - Resident Evil Revelations 2 - Sly Minigames - Siren Thanks to anyone who read this far, and please excuse my long absence.
  9. Oh man, fuck Brutal difficulty! Lmao I lost count of the number of times I had to replay the jeep chapter.
  10. Congrats again on the plat and on fiinally getting the review done I once again abandoned my whole write up of all the games I've played recently.. I actually did finish up the Ape Escape portion of mine but once again your writing totally puts my measly couple of short paragraphs to shame and makes me feel the need to revise lol. Love the passion you guys all have for the writing part of the process, it always looks so professional haha.
  11. I don't know how long ago I was mentioned in this thread, but I just got a notification haha. I have lurked your thread many times, but I don't think I've commented, so just wanted to say your list is inspiring and has encouraged me to get back to writing mine! Thanks for thinking of me :3
  12. Hey Doc, sorry I'm so late but I wanted you to know I read your RE7 write up a while ago and went "I'll respond to that soon" and then forgot bc I suck lol. But that was probably the best review I've seen on it. It's one of my favorite RE games and I wish I could experience it for the first time again. As a big RE fan, it honestly blew my mind. I've become so desensitized to horror that I don't get spooked by scary games very often but they did such a good job building the atmosphere, I was genuinely terrified most of my first (and even my second and third) time through. I know a lot of people don't like how different it was from past games, but like you said the first person perspective was both a fresh take and amped up the immersion factor by a lot. I only managed to kick my anxiety with the game when I was practicing for my speedrun and had to learn it inside and out. But even now when I replay it I still find myself filled with dread when the Bakers are stalking me throughout the house, especially when you have to get into that hatch to get under the house for the first time and Jack is right behind you and Ethan takes a million years to use the key lmao that's a workout for the heart. The locations are all iconic and horrific in their own ways. The ship in particular gives me the heebie jeebies for some reason. I did find Ethan pretty goofy as a protagonist, and his reactions to crazy things to be very underwhelming and odd. Example being when Marguerite transforms and he just goes "well, that's special.." but if some bugs get on him when he goes through a passage in the wall he freaks out lol. I do find him endearing though, and more understandable as a character after playing Village. Which I also did enjoy, but not as much as 7. You did open my eyes to something else too, and that's peoples issues with 6. I personally had a lot of good times with my friends playing RE6 so I'm probably biased, but I have always been like "why does 6 get so much hate??". I just really loved the way it was like 4 entire games in one, and all of the iconic characters that were in it. There will always be a special place in my heart for the Chris and Piers campaign. But I totally get where you're coming from. I didn't particularly like RE5 bc the gameplay was so different, like they abandoned the horror aspect completely to be CoD Zombies or something. I guess I was just so excited about Leon, Chris, Sherry and Ada all being playable in the same game and enjoying the story so much (even if it was kinda silly sometimes) that I didn't really realize it had the same issue I had with 5 in terms of being.. not like other RE games. Maybe that's why 7 came as such a shock and breath of fresh air haha.
  13. I second this! I can only hope one day I'll be this good at writing about the games I enjoy.
  14. I'm so happy to hear you liked DDLC so much! I thought you might but I'll admit I didn't expect you to like it as much as you did haha. That comparison to Little Nightmares (another one of my all time favorite games I've played the past few years) is on point, and I never thought of it. I also played Little Nightmares before I played Doki Doki and until just now I didn't realize that the scene with the Gnome and the first big dark moment in DDLC are the only two times something in a game has really made me suddenly feel physically sick and emotionally drained. Despite how awful those moments were, I see it as a really great thing when a game is able to pull such a strong reaction out of me. I didn't know anything about Little Nightmares when I played it for the first time, but I went into DDLC knowing for a fact that there was some sort of dark twist to it and it STILL managed to lull me into a false sense of security and trick me into thinking it was just a cute little game and everyone (including the content warning) had been messing with me lol. I also think the side stories were a bit odd to add after the fact, but I took a lot of comfort in them when I was done with the game bc they were just cute and it was kinda nice. I do think it would've been even more impactful if we'd had time to get attached to the characters through the side stories first, but I also think a lot of people would've lost interest before all the twists if it were to be played that way, which is too bad. I haven't played The Stanley Parable so I can't compare them but my partner wants me to play it so bad lol so maybe one day I'll see for myself. Anyway, I'm glad I was apparently one of the people who inspired you to play this! I got super attached to it as well and I'm glad it doesn't take up a lot of space bc I don't think I will ever be able to delete it bc of reasons lol. I know I probably sound like a broken record at this point, but if you ever want something similar.. I cannot recommend World End Syndrome enough >.< Also, I always love to see another LiS fan! Those games will always have a special place in my heart, especially BtS bc AmberPrice is probably my favorite fictional ship of all time 😢
  15. That's great! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :3 I loved experiencing that game for the first time and hope you had as much fun with it as I did. I definitely suggest World End Syndrome too if you enjoyed the vibe of Doki Doki, though it is a bit more suggestive in some parts lol. I look forward to hearing your full thoughts on DDLC if you decide to write about it!
