  1. The item kinda sucks though, it only give exp+ bonus til level 10... It does not even change your appearance...
  2. Missed it on my current Duran ran, am I screwed or is there another opportunity in NG+ with other caharacters while doing the 3 run plat.... Also, any Lil Cactus missable?
  3. Lil Cactus!!! Legend of Mana is my first Mana game and it is nice to see this fellow in 3D... Speaking of which, it looks like you need to find Lil Cactus in 50 locations, wonder if it is missable since the previous Mana games have one time dungeons....
  4. #314 Dragon Quest Heroes II Glory Hunter Awarded for successfully acquiring every trophy. It is over... It is finally over T_T I have this game for a while now and I have been stalling it since I have read that this game is very grindy. Weeks ago, I had at itch to play Musou(I am still waiting for Western release date of Persona 5 Scramble Atlus) so I decided to play this game. The gameplay felt the same with the first DQH but it felt less Mosou this time and felt more like YS-like ARPG. Well, I really didn't mind it since I was having fun and I kinda liked the plot... Yes, WAS! Then the real nightmare happened, getting the plat aka Grind/RNG fest. At first glance, it looks not that bad with getting all Puff Puffs of every caharacters(1~ hour gameplay with each character) then it escalated quickly in getting Level 20 of every weapon efficiency. Then when you think it is over, you will realize that it is far from over... Hours of praying to RNGesus to get the rare drop from a monster(I hate you Agoomulator)... Eye rolling to sponges called Wanted Monsters... And then back again to praying to RNGesus to get the Uber weapons(I started to lose my faith in RNGesus at one point, it took me hours just to get Terry's Uber weapon - luckily I love Hiroshi Kamiya)... It felt like it never ends.... Plus, I had to play the game from start to end Solo!!! And the AI of party members are like Donald from KH 1 and 2... On a bright side... I finished 4 Season of Community and 3 seasons of Elite(don't judge and also, Forever FTW) It was so repetitive that before post game, Cesar and Maribel are always in my party and I got so tired of using them hours later in post game. Overall, fun gameplay with lots of combination to choose with many playable characters compared to first game but a very grindy platinum if you are playing solo.
  5. Violet Evergarden Gaiden: Eien to Jidou Shuki Ningyou The hardest part on watching this one is trying not to cry while watching it on cinema ( ˃̣̣̥ω˂̣̣̥ ) I survived the first part, I thought it is not the same like the series and OVA, I thought I have managed to brace myself... And then the second part happened. I saw it coming like the episode 10, but in the end I failed... Overall, great movie.
  6. Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!: Kurenai Densetsu Months of patiently waiting paid off. I have expected that it won't be as funny as the 2 seasons but I think the movie is the best one so far. Nice to see Scum Kazuma and Pervert Kazuma back.
  7. Any news for localize release date? I am more excited on this game than P5R tbh cause.. Musou. List looks pretty straight forward, maybe the missable is only maxing Band skills cause it might require date planning like persona games... The rest seems like the you will get while playing trophies, except to some grind perhaps - Level grind and all skills? One complain though - where is my Futaba trophy icon????
  8. Happy Western Birthday Vita #306 - 313 My PS4 stopped working last December and while it was on repair(for almost a month ), I had to rely on my trusted Vita and Kemco games to satisfy most of my gaming J(?)RPG needs(the other one as Metroidvania, details later) + a tiny bit help from my good ol reliable and still working PS3(1 plat and which was unused rarely once I bought my PS4). Lately, maybe because of joining some events I guess, I am not really popping plats and been holding them off for a while(like atm I have Bloodstained plat ready to plat anytime) so I just decided to hold off on popping my Vita plats for this day *shrug* Anywayyy... For Kemco games above, my heirarchy in terms of enjoyment is: Wizards of Brandel > Illusion of L'Phalcia > Fernz Gate > Asdivine Dios > Frane: Dragons' Odyssey. Thoughts below... I have seen Curse of the Moon from a sale, I bought it as a palette cleanser to back to back Kemco games. After completing it, I still crave for Metroidvania, with my PS4 still in repair (and Ritual of the Night is still at full price), I searched for alternative and found a gem called Chasm. It is like a mini version of Castlevania with RNG. Glad that I found it and I highly recommend it. A certain doctor, which is rhymed to Magus, posted a status that Volumes of Westeria is free for anyone that bought the original Dragon Book(you know that one that has no plat years ago), and well, free plat is always welcome. Also having fun while replaying it is a very sweet icing on the cake. I have been waiting for ages for Ys VIII to go on sale, to the point that I actually forgot about the game. I finally saw it on sale and was reminded again that I want to play it. And it was a fun game and less stressful than Ys Origins. I actually thought that playing on Nightmare will save me some time for only playing it in 1 run but it felt that I spent more time on than 1 run than the estimated plat time for 2 runs. Not a problem for me though, loved the gameplay... One gripe though, and maybe because of less game time issue, it felt that the plot and cutscenes are sooo slow paced. It is also my gripe while playing Trails II.
  9. I have just checked the site and the games are now on sale.... Finally, price drop on Little Witch Academia. Tokyo Xanadu and THE LIAR PRINCESS AND THE BLIND PRINCE are on my Maybe list. Not a huge fan of Trails II so I am skeptical on TX. I have played Hotl and Rose in twilight in Vita so I was hoping that Liar and blind will be on Vita as well.
  10. Dragon Quest: Your Story Boo!!! Where is the Dragon Ball errr I mean real Dragon Quest Characters? /s It is hard to adapt a 40+ hours of game in ~2 hours but tbh, I actually liked it esp the ending. Made me smile since I was playing a game while watching it.
  11. #305 One Piece Unlimited World Red Deluxe Edition I Will Be Pirate King!Earn all trophies A game that ate the Grind-Grind fruit Bought from a sale last year, been eyeing for it for a while since it is one of the few One Piece game that has no MP trophies. I would say I prefer the PW one tbh in terms of gameplay and trophy hunting experience. PW3 was grindy but this game is worse. Level grind, RNG-based Collectibles + time consuming and the worst is that lame Smoker + Tashigi QTE that requies you 4+ hours doing nothing. Oh well, at least these 3 shone and were the MVP the entire game(unlike the anime/manga)
  12. Only works on EU version though. Few hours in and I already know that this one is going to be grindy.
  13. [Patapon 2] My greatest archnemesis, we meet again!!!

    1. JadedDragos

      JadedDragos

      I miss playing those games.

  14. Took a while but my first purchase in Play-asia finally arrived!!!
  15. Waited for Juju and it happened... And... As usual, my masochistic self bought this on a whim thanks to the movie...
  16. Well... Currently at Fairy Fencer F grind... Which means.... Netflix binge time... Fruit Basket 1st Season One word to describe the feels of watching this: Nostalgia. The original anime was one of the first Shoujo anime I have ever watched. (Probably one of the reason why I get to love Sidekicks.) main reThe animation and VAs are different but the feels feels the same. Really looking forward to the 2nd season. Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan: Ψ-shidou-hen I guess it is really really over now. I will miss this anime. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun Re-watched this one for best gurl Tomoda I have caught up in the anime and I still don't understand why this one still don't have a second season. Ni No Kuni Huhhhh...I guess a so-so film, I expected it to be bad but somehow, I kinda liked it. Probably because I really enjoyed the games' art.
  17. You need to talk to JQ (the sleeping mayor/chief) after rescuing someone, he will thank you after rescuing a citizen, once you rescued everyone, keep talking to him until he give you a Ring, the trophy will then pop...
  18. Hmmm... I rarely watch movies but this year, I could say these are my favorites: 1. Weathering With You 2. Parasite 3. Knives Out 4. Joker 5. Avengers: End Game
  19. #303 Dungeon Travelers 2 Master of the Royal LibraryAcquire all trophies. Happy birthday to us Vita I have heard good things about this game for a long time now but I always keep avoiding it since I haven't played the previous game, I dunno, it felt weird playing a second game without playing the first game... Anyway, after years of seeing the game on sale, I decided to finally purchase it. Putting aside the fan services of the game, it is a fun and good Dungeon Crawler game. The gameplay is simple which can be both good and bad depending on your taste. The game is also easy tbh, but getting the plat is quite grindy thanks to 20k kills. Would definitely recommend to Vita users that enjoy playing Dungeon Crawlers.
  20. I am pretty much done with earning plat at this point (I think I will only pop a plat tomorrow for Vita's birthday). So I guess time to post my picks... Once again, will be skipping the MP related ones. I think I only played one game with MP trophy this year. PIECE OF CAKE AWARD FULL THROTTLE REMASTERED Wow, I didn't play a Telltale game this year. Anyway, Will have to put Full Throttle for this category this year. Not a bad game though, I had fun from beginning to end. Runner up is CAT QUEST II and AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES IT'S LIKE DARK SOULS CHOCOBO'S MYSTERY DUNGEON: EVERY BUDDY! Every Buddy!Befriended all monsters and characters. Not really that difficult but, clearing 500 F number of times in one sitting gave me nervousness and paranoia. A runner up is probably the one in my BAD ASS AWARD BAD ASS AWARD LABYRINTH OF REFRAIN: COVEN OF DUSK Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of DuskCongratulations! You have achieved the impossible andutterly conquered Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk! Imagine a game where you breeze through the entire story mode, and then Nippon Ichi being a sadistic, required you to clear the Post-game (or True End route) to get the plat, and the only challenge is to defeat the hardest boss battle. After hours of grinding and planning, you barely defeated the boss with only 2 party member surviving. So satisfying. I am pretty sure I did hear a victory fanfare after that moment. Runner up is AXIOM VERGE'S Overclocked - I was so nervous before doing it. Another very satisfying gaming moment for me. GRIND OF THE YEAR DUNGEON TRAVELERS 2 2 words(?) - 20,000 KILLS. Not that bad since I pretty much spent my days binge watching some series while doing it (Thanks Netflix). Unhonorable Mentions: THE ALLIANCE ALIVE HD REMASTERED - the money and battle grind is not that bad tbh, that RNG based ones are not that fun ride. GRAND KINGDOM - again, not bad grind but the RNG for getting the skills needed made me spent hours of repetitiveness. LABYRINTH OF REFRAIN: COVEN OF DUSK - as said above, even there is not really a trophy related in grinding, the post game require you to grind just to clear it. SLEEPER HIT OF THE YEAR THE ALLIANCE ALIVE HD REMASTERED Probably I am biased on this one since I love Suikoden Runner up is LABYRINTH OF REFRAIN: COVEN OF DUSK - I have said it in MRP before but I will say it again. Probably the best Dungeon Crawler game I've played to date. BIGGEST BOMB OF THS YEAR SUPER NEPTUNIA RPG I still love NepNep games but I really don't like this game(Producing Perfection is still the worst IMO though). It became repetitive fast. I was basically using the same moves over and over again 75% of the time. The new characters are forgettable too, at this time, I already forgotten the name of the new characters. Dishonorable Mention - AEREA and OPERATION ABYSS: NEW TOKYO LEGACY BEST PLAT TROPHY IMAGE CHIBI CHOCOBO!!! Runner ups: WORST TROPHY IMAGE YOMAWARI: NIGHT ALONE Not that bad bad, it is more like - disappointing since the trophy images of the game except from the plat image looks good. Runner ups: BEST MALE CHARACTER Robbins - Alliance Alive Sure, he is just an optional character, but definitely the most funny character in the game and even he has very limited options, one of the best character to use as party member. Flippers FTW. "Kweh! Kweh!" Chocobo - Chocobo Series KWEH! KWEH! That's all. BEST FEMALE CHARACTER "Here I am, Madam Dronya! You called for me?" Luca - LABYRINTH OF REFRAIN: COVEN OF DUSK The moment I saw her interaction with Dronya, I know at that point already that I will love her. BEST PLAT OF THE YEAR CHOCOBO'S MYSTERY DUNGEON: EVERY BUDDY! I love Chocobo Dungeon 2 and Chocobo Racing and when Chocobo Racing for 3DS was cancelled, it broke my heart. But I have waited for years patiently, and it finally happened. And it didn't disappoint. The appearance of Chocobo PS1 Shiroma in the game is one of my favorite gaming moment this year! Definitely not for everyone but for me, one of the best game I've played. Runner Ups: AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES - #BasedUchi-sama!!!! Not as great as Zero Escape or even Punchline but still, worth the wait. Plus, Clover is no longer alone with the character I hate the most. I hate Iris with or without the twist. TALES OF VESPERIA: DEFINITIVE EDITION - it is still a mystery for me why the PS3 was not localized, it is a great Tales of game. LABYRINTH OF REFRAIN: COVEN OF DUSK WURST PLAT OV TEH YEAR OPERATION ABYSS: NEW TOKYO LEGACY BLERGH! BLERGH! BLERGH! Months later, I still dislike this game. STAY. AWAY. MOST ANTICIPATED PLATINUM OF 2020 Digimon Survive The Wolf Among Us 2 Persona 5 Royal Persona 5 Scramble Final Fantasy VII Remake 🙄 Funny, looking back at my 2018 list, I only got 2 out of 6 plats in my Most Anticipated Plat. Overall, I felt like I played less PSN game this year, probably because I did in purpose to have AI as my 300th plat, and after getting the plat, I got used to playing PSN game less. For a past month, I feel like my trophy hunting blood is starting to flow again... hopefully.
  21. Hmmm... Interrsted on buying this game... So trophy-wise questions: -Is there any missable trophies? -Seeing that it's rarity is uncommon, I am on fence if I will buy it at full price, or wait for a price drop, how many hours is needed for the plat? -do you need a second controller to get the plat or is it doable solo?
  22. The key is selling excess accessories IMO. Early parts, I guess the the area behind Blue's Oasis is a good spot to farm accessories to sell. On late game before point of no return, Crystal Cave is the best spot, also good place to grind Hp and Sp and most of arts. Other than that: -There is Antique shop in Hakurei Castle where you can sell accessories, the catch is, the accessories he buy is quite random and nobody atm know how to reset his shop. -If you recruited Faust, he will give you 50k So if you talk to him during the party after defeating final boss. -If you are aiming for the 500k So trophy, be frugal. You really won't need to buy weapons since the great ones can be found in Dungeons esp the Lost ones in Water Dens. Save > Sell everything > pop trophy > reload works as well.
  23. #302 The Alliance Alive HD Remastered Alliance Alive Acquire all trophies I rarely visit PSNP lately and on one rare day that I decided to check the forums, I found a thread that says that this game is from the creator of Suikoden. I love Suikoden so without any doubt, I bought the game without any knowledge about the game. And I didn't regret buying it. It was a fun experience. Well, the story is not that memorable but it is not bad. Unfortunately, like Ni No Kuni 2, the recruiting part leans more on quantity, rather than quality(well, 167 recuits so not that surprising I guess). The gameplay is quite interesting, it lets you pick what weapons you choose for most of the playable characters(well, obviously Flippers are the best ) - it give you more freedom on which strategy you want to play the game. The road to platinum is not hard but not easy though. I was lucky that there is a guide already for the game which makes it way easier. Like the other JRPGs, it has Missables, Grind, and RNG - and of course a Speedrun for a cherry on top. As said, it was a fun experience so I highly recommend it to anyone that likes JRPG.
  24. #300 AI: The Somnium Files AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES Obtained all other trophies Another Milestone, Another Uchi-sama game Anyway, I guess it is a good game(?). Unfortunatey not as good game as the Zero Escape series or even Punchline. I guess because I have picked the right route at the start so when the "twist" is revealed, it is not as surprising comoared to the previous Uchi games. My biggest gripe.... The characters - It might be also depends on the taste but to me, I really didn't cared much to most of them, especially Iris(my new Clover). Like, my fave character is an Otaku and his mother. But I must give credits when it is due, at this moment, I can't find a loophole with the plot, the branching point are well done and it makes sense. And of course, the humor and the puns(even some are too much of a reach), Love them. Would highly recommend if you enjoy mystery games.
