  1. First of 2021, clocking in at 14 seconds after midnight...Guns, Gore & Cannoli 2 Platted =) 

    And Better New Year, folks!

  2. Guns, Gore & Cannoli 2 Guns gore and Cannoli 2 Earn all Guns Gore and Cannoli 2 trophies Nobody wins, if the game ends tied. First Platinum of 2021, at 0:00:14 A side scrolling twin stick shooter, GGaC 2 takes a humorous approach on mafia, nazis and zombies. Because why not? And it is real fun too. One liners galore, you shoot, blast and maim everything from baddies to monsters to giant mutant rats. Difficulty is way low, at least with Platinum requirements. Breeze through and have a good time while you're at it Control settings are the only real gripe I have with the game. Shooting with is good, but why on earth is jumping with ? It's so against my every gaming fibre not to jump with , and this led to few mistakes during the run. But, as said, it's an easy journey so there's much room for error. Absolutely get this, if English with funny accent and games like Metal Slug interest you. And take the Cannoli
  3. Goodbye Piccadilly, farewell Leicester Square! It's a long long way to Tipperary, but my heart's right there... Aces of the Luftwaffe - Squadron Platted =)

  4. Aces of the Luftwaffe - Squadron Legend of the Skies Collect all Aces of the Luftwaffe trophies! Oh the weather outside is frightful. But the fire, the fire, is so delightful! Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...and rain hell on Nazis (and Yanks in DLC)! Aces of the Luftwaffe - Squadron is a top down shoot 'em up, based on fictional events after World War II. A 16-bit Wolfenstein shmup I love this genre. Tiger Heli (NES, I'm a nostalgia freak), every other level in Life Force (NES) and Axelay (SNES), Sky Force Anniversary... As long as it's not full blown bullet hell I can hold my own up there, with the best of the best. Just call me Maverick AotL - S is not the hardest one out there, besides the final two bosses. And the DLC trophy for beating 'em in Extreme difficulty. Sheesh. Crisp graphics, just perfect for pixel destruction and mayhem. Everything is clear and sudden deaths are usually your own fault. Except when the screen is filled with my explosion skills and enemy rockets and fire and bullets. Then you are literally flying blind Voice acting is (unintentionally?) hilarious. The Good Guys (Brits and Americans) all have thick German accents, which is just priceless Music and sound effects are a blast. Boss battles ooze Rocky IV-esque ass kickery. Just wanna lift heavy weights and punch those planes!!! I have only dabbled a bit with the DLC, in which you play as the Third Reich monsters. Seems even more fun than the main campaign Upgrading your pilots is fun too. What I'm trying to tell you is that instead of dodging bullets...when you're ready, you won't have to. If you're even slightly interested in these types of games, you can't go wrong with Luftwaffe - Squadron. It's Aces, baby
  5. Still searching for the secret ingredient of a Krabby Patty...SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Platted =)

  6. SpongBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Neptune's Spatula Get all the other trophies for this game A teeny, tiny black loading screen...BRING ON THE ROBOTS!!! Hey, it's that thing that lives in a pineapple under the sea! Battle for Bikini Bottom: Rehydrated is apparently a remaster of sorts. And, apparently, a cult favourite. I never played the original one, but in my opinion 3D platformers from that era are more annoying than entertaining. This one is pretty good, though. Characters are funny, and you get to play with Patrick and Sandy too, besides SpongeBob. Difficulty is on the lower side, except for a few sharp spikes here and there (Dream levels especially!) Then there's those "screw up and lose enough progress to get mad" moments, thanks to uneven saving. And, being a Noughties game (like Sly Coopers and I-Hate-Them-So-Much Jak & Daxters), camera does most of the killings Goddamn precise jumps with goddamn camera spinning and shooting goddamn walls and goddamn leaves. Sucks to jump when you have little to no idea where you're landing, and screwing up and watching that loooooong loading screen. Oh, and a certain ball rolling section and one or two slide races can go and die as well. Up yours, Playstation 2 But, my rage issues aside, Battle for Bikini Bottom: Rehydrated does offer cool boss battles and an overall sweet experience. Definitely worth considering, if you have patience and accept some dated gameplay mechanics. A solid 7,5/10
  7. Unlike this pun, Padme's and Anakin's relationship always felt a bit Forced...Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Platted =)

      Thanks, guys xD

      @Asuna Yuuki: I will, I will. Just gotta get a few stress free ones, first :awesome:

  8. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order A New Hope Earn all trophies Moments after speaking underwater, he realized he can't speak underwater. And then he died. A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...I played Super Star Wars games on Super Nintendo. They were grand. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is almost as good as those golden oldies. Very different, of course, but good nonetheless. This is a sort-of-open world metroidvania, with combat similar to Souls games. Tons easier, naturally The Force is strong with lots of things in SWJ: FO. Graphics are excellent most of the time and different planets each have their moments to shine. Wielding a light saber, or variations of it...c'mon, it does not get any better than that. Mine was orange. SHHHOOOM SWISHHH ZZZZRRK !!! Use of Star Wars lore was well done. Lots of fan service and nods to movies old, but kept my sorry old ass happy Exploration was mostly fun and finding secrets from every nook and cranny felt satisfying...at first. Now onto the Dark Side, with all that's wrong with this game...BECAUSE I SAY SO!! Screen freezing at times when going to a different area, and occasional visual hiccups. Forest planet Kashyyyk (yup, three y's) was a buggy mess. Lack of music and its sparse use in very odd points in game. A battle theme would play out for a moment, even if there's no one around. Moving with normal speed. It's more like slow jogging, and Cal looks like he just shat his pants. Well he does Backtracking, the most frustrating and tedious aspect of the game. A fast travel of sorts would've been nice, but no, let the boy jog with Shit Pants. Collectibles that are mostly skins...for your pancho (or is it poncho?). I didn't even use that pa-poncho, makes him look fat and bloated Despite all those faults, I'd still give Fallen Order a sweet 8+/10. For fans of Star Wars this might be the game they were looking for
  9. Escaped from circus, medieval castle and haunted mansion, that's DLC's done and The Escapists 2 now 100% =)

      @Asuna Yuuki: Lol only a few to go xD

  11. The Escapists 2 Houdini Unlock all trophies "You're not sending ME to the COOLAH!" - Mr. Freeze A sequel that escaped my attention at release, caught my eye at last. From the masterminds that made every Worms game ever, comes a rollickin' good 16-bit prison breaks series. And I use the term "prison" here loosely. Yeah, there are some standard low- and high security facilities around, but... There's also escaping from a plane, train, space station, Santa's shop, circus, dungeon etc etc I like how inventive you can get with the ways of escape. Classics include digging and fence cutting, of course... Aaand not quite traditional ways are riding a dolphin, being an alien pretending to be human, or jumping with a motorcycle! Everything in a prison goes by a clock. Routines must be obeyed at certain hours, else it's baton up the butt. I mean, solitary and stuff. Crafting, doing favours, looting other prisoners' desks and working for money are all means to a slippery end, a slide to freedom While the time restrictions feel pressing at first, one quickly adapts to tasks at hands and finds time to do the above stuff and more. The Escapists games are perfect for me. I find it addictive to complete my craftings and goings in fast pace. This is not for everyone, though. Still DLC's left, which I'll be tackling gladly. For strategists who work well under pressure, running away from these titles would be foolish

      Thank you very much, guys!

      And nice to see you again, Dragon :lol:

  13. Gauntlet I've not seen such bravery! Complete all Trophies in Gauntlet(TM) Well, that was an explosive barrel of fun. I've not seen such grindery! Gauntlet is a top-down dungeon crawler, where you are constantly being overwhelmed by dozens of monsters. This is a "new and improved" version of a game that was originally released in 1985. I did play that when I was a kid, and I only remember it being hard as nails and I never found out if it actually ever ends This new Gauntlet does, at least story wise. Farming wise, it sure feels endless. Kill 15,000 of each 6 enemy types, kill 12,000 with each 4 characters abilities, kill 50,000 with one character.... It's pure mass murder, and a horrible slog. At least a few of them kills can be done afk with a good ol' rubber band I still liked it, grindy or not. Levels offered a good challenge, especially on hard, and it had a twin stick shooter feel to it. Endless Mode was a beast of its own. 50 levels, of which first 17~ish are easy. Then it gets brutal and just nasty. I usually play with a warrior in these games, but elf was just too good to be passed on. Fast and ranged, that slippery coward I'd say Gauntlet is a fun option for anyone looking for dungeons without dragons, thousands of evil beings and food to shoot. Yup, shoot it
  14. Having a vacation of sorts from serious trophy hunting, but here's one for the road: Seasons after Fall Platted =)

  15. Seasons after Fall Master of seasons Unlock all trophies for "Seasons after Fall" Could've used some stairs, for fox's sake. It's cute, it's indie. And it's got some flaws. Seasons after Fall is an exploration/Metroidvania/platforming game, with pretty visuals. And although the graphics are a sight for the sore eyes, the controls are the reason for sore thumbs My fox moves clumsily, has a delay with every action, takes time to even turn. Zero fox given at any moment. Buttons should not be this unresponsive in any game, let alone in a friggin' platformer. Brick movement almost ruins the experience. You can't die at all, which takes off all challenge. But with aforementioned delay, adds frustration in tight jumping sections. Gameplay and story are not for thrill seekers. It's the same monotone pace all the way, kinda like watching paint dry in 1.25x speed For a title that's meant to be artistic and "a journey out of stress", it's pretty f**king annoying. The lack of map doesn't help, either. Seasons after Fall falls short after first season. But it's cheap at the store, at times. Find it at low price, it's better than getting Lost
