  1. #164 ‚ąöLETTER Difficulty: 1/10 Enjoyment: N/A Got the platinum in this by using the text skip. (I'm trying to get some platinums in before the trophy passes on Sony Rewards expire.) I'll go back and play this for real eventually.
  2. #163 Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy Difficulty: 2/10 Enjoyment: 7/10 I've played and owned these games multiple times but with the newest ports I figured it was time to do it again. The platinum is nothing serious to worry about other than some potentially tricky trophies that require specific interactions and carry across the three games. Definitely nothing to tear your hair out over. I have somewhat unconventional Ace Attorney opinions in that I think Justice for All is the best of the trilogy with Trials and Tribulations as the worst and I stand by that. All of them are at least good games still. It would be nice to see 4/5/6 released as a trilogy on PSN/other platforms eventually (I'd say the Investigations games also but this is Capcom who am I kidding???) as well.
  3. #116 - Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Difficulty - 4/10, Enjoyment - 8/10 Got through this one surprisingly quick and painlessly. So glad that unlocks carry over into any difficulty as Madhouse would've been a disaster for me otherwise. Props to those who did play Madhose with no items or from the start! As someone who's first video game was the original Resident Evil (I have a long ~history with the series) I'm just really relieved to have liked this so much. To be completely honest the original trailer for this had me less than sold but thankfully the game itself was nothing like what said trailer had me expecting. There were definitely a decent amount of iffy bits but i find myself coming out of this with mostly positive thoughts. Finishing another mainline RE game in yet another new style had me thinking about the future of RE. Capcom is at a crossroads of sorts when you consider that there are 3 notable styles of RE games, each with their own fans and detractors. There's the classic/fixed camera angle styled survival horror of the games up until 4, the third person action and sometimes horror of 4-6 with Rev1/2, and now the first person horror of 7. I wouldn't count on this happening since Capcom is Capcom but I figured it would be reasonable for all of these types to carry on into the future. Mainline/numbered RE titles can continue onward with the first person style, we can get more third person action/horror style in the Revelations side series, and finally any ports or remasters can be done in the style of the original games. We could even see some smaller games in the style of the old ones on PSN or something for a cheaper price vs a full $60 affair. I'm not sure how likely this is but considering we've had 3 RE games release in a year (1 mainline, and some spin-offs) I figured it wouldn't be too out of line. This would leave all current RE fans (regardless of type preference) with something they're pleased with, which is definitely a good thing. Even better yet for someone like me who has liked all styles as it would just mean more, more, more. Throw in a Mercs or Raid mode only side game with characters, stages, and weapons from across the series and the gameplay styles shown in 4/5/6 and Revelations and things look even greater. It's just a very exciting time for me to be a RE fan and as long as Capcom doesn't mess things up too badly, I'm hyped to see what comes next. Also because why not, let me rank the series. This is obviously early but I played through RE7 3 times so I think it might be fair to try to place it.: REmake > RE3 > RE1 > RE2 > RE7 > RE5 (in co-op, SP it drops a few slots) > RE4 > Rev 2 > Code Veronica X > Rev 1 > 6 > 0 I don't really dislike any of the games but Rev, 6, and 0 all bore me quite a bit. 6 has my absolute favorite gameplay in the series but it's wasted badly in anything that isn't mercenaries or the other MP modes.
  4. #100: Resident Evil 5 (PS4) Difficulty: 3/10 Enjoyment: 9/10 Really late with posting this but I figured I'd drop this in here. Finally hit 100 platinums and I figured this would be a good fit as bookends of sorts (RE5 on PS3 was my very first plat.) I originally wanted to plat Silent Hill 2 for #100 as it's my favorite game of all time but I don't think I have it in me to deal with the port job on PS3 long enough to get a 10 star run. I don't have a lot to say about this one other than it's still one of my favorites. I'm not one to spend a lot of time (or any at all) playing online with others but I spent probably 90% of my time short of grinding out money for upgrades with friends. I wish some of the various bits that lend themselves to the co-op better carried over into 6 (sharing ammo and whatnot) but that's a different discussion all together. 5 is probably my favorite RE game after CVX by a large margin. On an overall trophy hunting standpoint, I'll probably still be getting plats here and there but I've decided to stop going out of my way for them in 90% of all cases. It's been (mostly) fun though!
  5. #92: Resident Evil 0 Difficulty: 5/10 Enjoyment: 5-6/10 Finally played through (and completed 100%) this one after owning it back on the Gamecube but never making it past the facility. Really mixed feelings on this even as a hardcore Resident Evil fan. It is a classic style RE game through and through which is a positive as we don't get those anymore but it's like the game goes out of its way to be difficult/annoying at any chance it can get. To start with the inventory system this time around is abysmal. There's been complaints about the inventory system of the RE series before with the limited space and item boxes but I genuinely don't think the solution is to just remove the boxes. The concept of being able to drop items wherever you want so you can go back to them later seems like a logical step but when you factor in things like most weapons taking up two slots and some items having multiple uses across the different locations with little to no warning and it's easy to get screwed over. For example The enemies are also among the worse in the classic style games from both a design and gameplay standpoint. It's incredibly easy to get stunlocked to death by one or multiple enemies in more than one spot. Looking back I'm not surprised that this was probably the nail in the casket of classic RE style games. It wasn't all bad though, the game looks amazing for something that released so long ago. (I wish the assets for Resident Evil were available so that could have had as much effort because it's a vastly superior game but that's another story.) It's too bad the train section is so short because it's really unique and definitely more interesting than the following locations which feel like retreads of some of the places in earlier games. The atmosphere and soundtrack are great as well.That's not even getting to the decent amount of fun stuff for fans of the series, even if some of it is nonsensical. Leech Hunter is also up there as one of my favorite side games in the series with Mercs in RE6. Overall it isn't bad but it's not even close to REHD or most of the other games in the series for that matter. I wouldn't recommend this as a first game for a newcomer to the series but if you've played/liked other classic style RE games and are curious give it a go maybe. The game is definitely more enjoyable on return playthroughs when you know what you're doing and you have the various unlocks.
  6. #91: Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 Difficulty: 2/10 Enjoyment: 6/10 Decent improvement on the first in most ways. It was nice to not have to replay each level once for the platinum this time around. The character redesign and dialogue/voices are still messy but this isn't a bad way to spend a day/afternoon. I'd just suggest it as a rental or a really cheap purchase.
  7. #90: Game of Thrones Difficulty: 1/10 Enjoyment: 5/10 I blame my lukewarm response to this one on my lack of appreciation for fantasy as a genre across all types of media. Due to what I previously mentioned it was an uphill battle to become truly invested in this. While there were times where I was definitely engrossed it wasn't to the extent of any other Telltale game I've played to date (I believe I've played every season released since TWD S1.) When you aren't engrossed it's a bit harder to look past some of the flaws that you'd be more forgiving with otherwise, in this case the decisions making little difference stood out to me. If you're a fan of the license or fantasy in general and can handle Telltale type games this should probably be enjoyable to you though. 90 platinums though! Never thought I'd make it to 10 when I received my first, then thought I wouldn't hit 50, and here I am. Here's to going for #100 this year.
  8. #89: Broken Sword 5 - the Serpent's Curse Difficulty: 1/10 Enjoyment: 7/10 Grabbed this during the winter sales as point and click adventure games are one of my favorite genres and I enjoyed Broken Sword 1 and 2 on my PC. I already owned this on my PC but it was so cheap and had a platinum so I couldn't resist. This was pretty good, if you've played one Broken Sword game you've more or less played all of them (3 and 4 seem to have branched off a lot gameplay wise but I haven't touched those yet.) Great for a one or two sitting playthrough if you have the time but it's nothing that will blow you away. Shears is one of my favorite NPCs in the series.
  9. #88: Mad Max Difficulty: 4/10 Enjoyment: 5 or 6/10 (probably a solid 7 if it was less glitchy) Hoo boy, this was one of my more stressful platinums. Nothing was particularly difficult but having to constantly keep an eye on challenges/stats while dealing with other random issues that popped up frequently (fast travel would stop working until i rebooted, I'd fall through the map, it would say a storm was approaching but then one wouldn't happen, etc.) was a pain. I didn't realize that the scavenging locations were a thing that glitched for some until I was like 80% through the main plot with a decent chunk of open world stuff accomplished so thankfully I avoided that. Overall though I think this can be put with games like Fallout 3 and similar titles that I'd enjoy a whole lot more if the glitches weren't so constant. I'd probably be less forgiving if the framerate was all over the place like some other games or if I experienced any of the game breaking glitches. I had Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on PS3 next in my gamefly queue and it shipped before I finished this but I really don't want anything to do with sandbox/open world titles for awhile now.
  10. #87: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale (Vita) Difficulty: 2/10 Enjoyment: 3/10 Had a craving for a decent party/fighting game after Smash Wii U/3DS didn't really cut it for me somehow but I seem to have been misled. For a game that you don't often see mentioned anywhere with someone having to name drop Smash Bros. it really isn't that similar. I think the similarities pretty much stop at the four player mascot brawler concept. I'd like to see another title someday maybe with a decent roster, character balance, and overall love/effort put into it but I'm not sure if it ever will after the performance of this one. I feel like this is like the third or fourth platinum I've gotten in a game I dislike within the past few months. Someone please stop me/I'm a mess
  11. #86: Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls Difficulty: 2/10 Enjoyment: 4/10 This left a lot to be desired for me sadly. I didn't have high expectations as this was a weird (genre wise) spin-off but I was hoping to enjoy this more nonetheless. While the overall playtime was shorter than DR1 and 2 at times it felt much more grindy/lengthy to get through. Nice to already have a plat so soon into the new year at least.
  12. Really strong year for trophy hunting this year even though I had some extended gaps. Not pictured: Life is Strange (site image is broken?) In progress: Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls and Game of Thrones (PS4)
  13. 1. LittleBigPlanet 2. Lone Survivor: Director's Cut 3. Spec Ops: The Line 4. L.A. Noire 5. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception 6. Resident Evil 6 7. Heavy Rain 8. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time 9. Resident Evil 5 10. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves 11. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune 12. God of War 13. inFAMOUS: First Light 14. God of War II 15. Assassin's Creed II 16. Life is Strange 17.

The Wolf Among Us 24. Sly 2: Band of Thieves 25. The Walking Dead
  14. PS4 Game of Thrones PS Vita Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention --- I've also been thinking about what I want my 100th plat to be since I'm at 85 currently and I'm really feeling Silent Hill 2 HD. I know the port is a miserable mess and it might be a bit out of my league in terms of playing ability (the 10 star run..) but SH2 is my favorite game of all time and I think it would be special for #100.
  15. #84: Dark Cloud Difficulty: 4/10 Enjoyment: 8/10 One of my absolute favorites from the PS2 era. This was actually my first time finishing the story, in the past I've it as far as the final boss before stopping. The trophy list itself is nothing complicated but I can definitely see some of the bosses being a challenge if you are't experienced with the game. The fishing stuff gave me unfortunate flashbacks to the fishing in Nier and Sonic Adventure. I'd be fine with never having to fish in a game again. #85: Tales from the Borderlands Difficulty: 1/10 Enjoyment: 8/10 This was a really pleasant surprise since I dislike the normal Borderlands games. Probably the best overall cast I've seen in a Telltale game yet. Hopefully this gets a season 2 someday but with as many projects Telltale has going on who knows. (Still waiting for TWAU S2)
