  1. Like I said, here's that next platinum. #132 Pic-a-Pix Color 2 (Vita) Another day, another Pic-a-Pix. Like the first game, the added colors make the picross puzzles easier, but since this is the 2nd Pic-a-Pix Color, they removed the silly 5x5 puzzles and replaced them with actual ones, giving it more playtime overall. 150 puzzles for $4 (was on a 50% off sale, which is still going on) was a decent price for the play time. Perfect game to just relax a bit with the Vita. Two 100% completions - Doodle Kingdom was taking a while and the deadline for Gaming with Numbers was fast approaching so I pulled in a different game... only to have it complete within twenty minutes of the deadline. Still managed to get both games finished though, so it's all right. Arcade Archives: Solomon's Key (New, +9, 9/9) Doodle Kingdom (Vita) (New, +12, 12/12) No other trophies for now, but with an event over with I should have many new trophies for the next update, as I have no platinum planned. Should be fun!
  2. 0 - Burly Men at Sea (6490) 1 - Nurse Love Addiction [NA] (6281) 2 - Doodle Kingdom [NA Vita] (3482) 3 - Pic-a-Pix Color 2 [NA Vita] (9333) 4 - Wake-Up Club (1424) 5 - Fill-a-Pix: Phil's Epic Adventure [NA PS4] (7935) 6 - Borderlands [PS4] (8956) 7 - Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age (8127) 8 - Arcade Archives: Sengoku (5868) 9 - Tacoma (7589) Doodle Kingdom pushed this to the wire with its 30 boss kill trophy, so much so that I was going to throw in another game to finish the number, but it finished just in time. And with that, and Pic-a-Pix Color 2, my list is complete. Thanks @eigen-space for hosting the event.
  3. Well, I did not get a new platinum that took much effort, as I wanted to. The Gaming by Numbers thread concludes in less than 24 hours now, so I'm racing to finish a few things by the deadline. Including this game. #131 Tacoma If you've been looking through the downloaded games - backlog section a few times, you probably noticed this just sitting on the list for a while, for really no reason at all. I just never got to it. It's made by the same company who made Gone Home (which I also played through), and I feel that the game this time around is much more intriguing than Gone Home ever was, and it makes one actually care about the characters aboard the station as you listen in on what has happened within the past few days. My only complaint is that the game does feel too short - the full game is less than two hours long and it would be more intriguing if the game was extended a bit (no, the trophies don't extend the gameplay much at all either). As such, I recommend picking it up in a sale, as $20 is way overpriced for such a game. I also finished an Arcade Archives for the Gaming by Numbers topic. I also beat the game, since it was only five stages and the final boss. There aren't any trophies for doing so but I felt like doing it anyway. Arcade Archives - Sengoku (+6, 6/6) Of course, with the TrueTrophies challenge still on, the random trophy updates will continue. Last week's challenge was to collect ten gaming genres, so I delved into my library to see what I could get for that, and this week's challenge is to get the same amount of trophies as your teammate. We settled on 19, which conveniently is the amount of trophies in Tacoma and Arcade Archives: Sengoku combined. Totally not planned. Demon Gaze (+3, 12/41) Gems of War (+2, 61/67) Pic-a-Pix Color 2 (New, +14, 14/23) Plague Inc: Evolved (+8, 22/55) The Silver Case HD (+2, 15/26) Yakuza 0 (+1, 28/55) Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA (+2, 6/51) Demon Gaze... not sure why I stopped playing, but I'm finally continuing with that one. Same goes for Ys VIII. Pic-a-Pix Color 2 will be the next platinum as I need it for the Gaming by Numbers topic. Finally beat Plague Inc: Evolved, which is nice. The overwhelming majority of the trophy list is finding random skill combos, mostly using the Necroa Virus, so it shouldn't take much time to finish that portion (the problem will be beating every disease type on mega-brutal difficulty). For the other games, I'm just continuing to play them. Even Gems of War. It'll be complete someday, right? (nope)
  4. Well, there's just a day and a few hours left, so I suppose I should get a move on, huh? 0 - Burly Men at Sea (6490) 1 - Nurse Love Addiction [NA] (6281) 2 - 3 - 4 - Wake-Up Club (1424) 5 - Fill-a-Pix: Phil's Epic Adventure [NA PS4] (7935) 6 - Borderlands [PS4] (8956) 7 - Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age (8127) 8 - Arcade Archives: Sengoku (5868) 9 - Tacoma (7589) 2, 3, and 9 are all planned and I'll be doing them over the next 26 hours or so. EDIT: Added 9 to the above list.
  5. OK, I'm going to start with 5 games and add to it if needed. Demon Gaze (13%) Final Fantasy VII (4%) Kingdom Hearts I HD (1%) The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel (10%) Trinity: Souls of Zill O'll (2%) That should be good enough for now.
  6. I feel like this TrueTrophies challenge will end up putting a lot of these easy platinums and stacked ones on my list as I keep progressing through the challenge. #130 One Word by POWGI [PS4] Nothing really else to say about this. The new trophies include a lot of random trophies as the new bonus involved spelling a phrase, so I went and delved into my collection to see how to spell this effectively (and then got bored and did the POWGI to finish the last four letters). Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland DX (+1, 13/54) Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten (+1, 8/51) Gems of War (+2, 59/67) Judgment (+3, 4/47) Plague Inc: Evolved (+1, 14/55) The Silver Case HD (+2, 13/26) Tears to Tiara II: Heir of the Overlord (+1, 25/57) Yakuza 0 (+1, 27/55) Yakuza Kiwami 2 (+3, 35/59) Hopefully this long weekend will give me an idea for a platinum that takes a bit of effort
  7. The first sentence here is incorrect. However, as you said, there's more wrong with the list than just that.
  8. As with others in this topic, I voted but don't consider me for the giveaway. Good luck to everyone who is going for it.
  9. Might as well get another update up as well, as I finished another title. 0 - Burly Men at Sea (6490) 1 - Nurse Love Addiction [NA] (6281) 2 - 3 - 4 - Wake-Up Club (1424) 5 - Fill-a-Pix: Phil's Epic Adventure [NA PS4] (7935) 6 - Borderlands [PS4] (8956) 7 - Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age (8127) 8 - 9 - A pretty average adventure game from PS+. Nothing too special.
  10. Pulled a PS+ title off the download list and onto my trophy list, finishing everything in about two hours. #129 Burly Men at Sea An interesting little adventure game with a few branching paths leading out to twelve different endings. The thing unique about this game as it will constantly reference back to your previous plays through the game, so the dialogue will adapt and change as you go for all the endings. I had one bug where the button presses just stopped working, but a restart fixed it. Not a bad way to spend two hours with this title from PS+. Also finished an Arcade Archives title that I surprisingly had a lot of problems with. Apparently no one else did, because no guide I read said you can access the menu and give yourself more lives to make it easier to finish. Anyway, it's done. Arcade Archives: Magmax (+2, 9/9) One thing I am trying to do while I rack up the points in the TrueTrophies score challenges is knock out as many common trophies on my Trophy Advisor over here to see how many trophies I can knock it down to. So far, I have 116 common trophies left in the Trophy Advisor, but I know I can get that farther down. Though, that explains why so many games keep getting updates, like below. Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey (+2, 13/45) Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland DX (+2, 12/54) Fate/Extella Link (+1, 27/44) Final Fantasy XIII-2 (+2, 8/32) Root Double -Before Crime * After Days- Xtend Edition (+3, 12/49) Sly 2: Band of Thieves (+2, 15/36) Tetris Effect (+1, 19/43) Yakuza Kiwami 2 (+1, 32/59) But hey, I managed to at least beat Atelier Firis, finally. That counts for something, right?
  11. I'll take my forum name, please. It doesn't really matter now hat I've changed my PSN name but I feel like keeping things consistent with the other badges I have.
  12. @Neocarleen your post seems to have skipped all the games on sale that start with the letters A-D
  13. That's cool. However, from a quick glance, I see you cheated Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Okami HD, so you'll be permanently off the leaderboards. You'll have to start a new account if you want to be on the leaderboards again.
  14. A four player co-op run all the way to the end, a few DLC runs and about ten hours of grinding up levels gets me my next platinum. #128 Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition Looking at my list you'll see very little in the way of WRPGs - too many of them are shooters (like this one) and I am completely terrible at anything resembling a FPS - though with the second wind mechanic in Borderlands this is less of an issue, I think. Also, playing with four people made the game much more enjoyable than if I played it by myself - however the breakneck speed means I missed out on some story bits. Not that it matters, the story of Borderlands 1 is very simple. Nothing really special for the platinum, just need to make a character of each class to use their class skill, play and beat a boss with friends, and hit level 50 in addition to obviously beating the game. I opted for the siren for the co-op run, and we ended up with two soldiers and a berserker in addition to myself. Too bad for the hunter, huh? The last post was almost a full month ago, so there's a lot of trophy updates. First off, I got 100% in two Vita titles that have been on my list for quite some time. Deemo: The Last Recital (+2, 19/19) Wake-Up Club (+1, 12/12) For Deemo, the only thing needed was a few co-op trophies. Fortunately, you don't need to pass the song in the duet mode, so you can just let it run and do nothing. Duel mode is similar in its action, but takes longer as you need to win more duels. Wake-Up Club had four alarms needed for the last trophies (obviously, I didn't know that and was prepared to do a large amount) and it was nice to finally get it out of the way. The rest of the list includes the end of KYC 10, as well as the beginning of TrueTrophies' Score Challenge, of which I am in both the team and individual challenges. This Borderlands platinum will obviously help towards that, but I've been pushing through a lot of other games, like the ones below: Apex Legends (+1, 4/12) Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star (New, +4, 4/26) Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland DX (+1, 10/54) DJMAX Respect (+3, 61/93) Fate/Extella Link (+13, 26/44) Gems of War (+2, 57/65) Judgment (New, +1, 1/47) Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix HD (New, +1, 1/56) Mary Skelter: Nightmares (+3, 13/34) Plague Inc: Evolved (+1, 13/55) Resident Evil (New, +3, 3/45) Root Double -Before Crime * After Days- Xtend Edition (+1, 9/49) The Silver Case HD (+5, 11/26) Tales of Xillia 2 (New, +1, 1/49) Tetris Effect (+1, 18/43) Yakuza 0 (+7, 26/55) Pretty obvious to see what games had the most gain just looking at this. Well, onto the next platinum!
  15. First update since July... whoops. But I did finally get another platinum to add to the list. 0 - 1 - Nurse Love Addiction [NA] (6281) 2 - 3 - 4 - Wake-Up Club (1424) 5 - Fill-a-Pix: Phil's Epic Adventure [NA PS4] (7935) 6 - Borderlands [PS4] (8956) 7 - Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age (8127) 8 - 9 - Just the base game for now (and some of the DLC) though I do plan on getting all the DLC trophies at a later date. Preferably after a patch is introduced to fix the Moxxi crash bugs. Definitely have a few ideas for each of the remaining numbers, just have to actually play the games.
