  1. Do you wanna play a game? Naah, I'd rather watch a movie...Late Shift Platted =)

  2. Late Shift Platinum Trophy Acquire all trophies Surprisingly good. An interactive movie, much like The Bunker. Only better acted. The main reason why I didn't play (or watch, LOL) this sooner was the main image (same as Plat image). I thought that the main dude looks kind of ill in those shots and I didn't want to watch hours of that face Well, spoiler alert: he looks just normal and does a fine job in acting as well. What weirdos we humans are Plus points for having a setting in London. The British are coming and all that, I love England and hope they'll win the World Cup 🇬🇧 Late Shift is a swell combination of game and movie. A good way to spend a hung-over weekend. Film buffs! In an Adventure with Trophies
  3. What a glitch-ridden ride. 4 pretty annoying DLC's completed, and Borderlands 2 is now at cool 100% =)

  4. Don't do drugs, kids. Have a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster instead!...Cosmic Star Heroine (PS Vita) Platted =)

      Thank you very much :awesome:

  5. Cosmic Star Heroine (PS Vita) Heroine Achieve all possible trophies I'd rather have a Love Shield. The power of love with none of the arguments or thrown dishes. I've waited this port for a while now, since the PS4 version was pure 16-bit, nostalgic gold. This, I'll give silver at best. The game is still the same, but technical issues keeps me praising this one much. More on those later. Cosmic Star Heroine is a fast-ish paced RPG with SNES visuals. Gameplay owes hugely to greats Chrono Trigger and Secret of Evermore. Love those Style-wise it's futuristic cyberpunk, I guess. In many ways it looks and especially sounds like Blade Runner and its sequel. Again, much love Lots of references to games and films to be found. Particularly the police station level, which is a huge nod to Resident Evil 2, and this RE1 riff: I surely hope this isn't Chris' blood. About that Jill-sandwich we were talking about earlier... But, lo and behold, the devs had to drop the ball on this port. There's lag in menu and in walking, characters strut and jerk, load times are long. Sometimes the game even goes to an almost complete halt, having me praying it doesn't crash. Why is it so? It's a 16-bit game on Vita, ffs Random freezes do occur, and one constant one. Leveling to 50 with my main Alyssa and clicking Abilities caused a crash four times in a row Cosmic Star Heroine is a fantastic title, just not on handheld. If you do have the option to choose, play it on PS4. Vita is love, but not today folks
  6. Four somewhat enjoyable DLC's later (except Move Pack), LittleBigPlanet 2 is now 100% =)

      Thank, guys :lol:

      @Metal Slime King: Still nice and ultra rare, happy to be in the club :lol:

      Dang, I totally forgot about Prehistoric's existence, have to play that soon too :awesome:

  7. Shot through the heart and you're to blame. Darlin', this is not a bad game!...Omega Strike Platted =)

  8. Omega Strike Omega squad Unlock all trophies Since Plat image is Crappy Crapperson, here's how the game actually looks with second to last boss resting in pieces. Keeping things simple. Point gun at bad guys, shoot bad guys. Get upgrades, backtrack to now reachable locations. I like it. Metroidvania is like pizza. When it's good, it's really really good. When it's bad...it's still pretty darn good Omega Strike gets things right for the most part. It's not even close to such masterpieces like Super Metroid or Symphony of the Night, but what is? All the secrets are relatively easy to find, even if the map system is somewhat insufficient. Those nooks and crannies ain't gonna search themselves Graphically OS reminded me of Mercenary Kings (that game's awesome, go play it now), with 16-bit visuals not too offensive to one's eyes. Many enemies looked like they've been abducted from Mega Man, and some even gave me Quagmire vibes. Gigity giggity goo! Soundtrack is surprisingly funky as well. Especially in Military Base, where I could hear influences from Bionic Commando (NES+Remastered, play those too). Not too short, not too long either. Just as women like it, and in this instance so did I I am currently the Fastest Achiever and then some, but I did have a shopping break in there. Likely to change, but I'll enjoy it while it lasts. For fans of Metroidvania genre, people looking to avoid complicated stuff and for speedy speedsters, Omega Strike offers at least a brief encounter
  9. I really like your Guybrush cover photo. :D

    Monkey Island was one of my first games I ever played when I was I little boy. 😊

    1. Ala-Arska

      Ala-Arska

      Thank you very much :lol:

      Secret of Monkey Island was one of my first ones too, at least non-Nintendo wise :lol:

      And it was spectacular, I still remember the pure gaming joy I had with it and the sequels

      (that ending twist in LeChuck's Revenge was something out of this world) ^_^

  10. His fangs are sharp, he likes your taste. Your party better move post-haste!...Max: The Curse of Brotherhood Platted =)

      @Ala-Arska Oh wow, now that you mention it, it is indeed from the old movie. I originally saw it in Spanish so that's probably why I couldn't remember it right away :awesome: Great movie back then, I haven't had the chance to see the new one yet. 😅

    3. Ala-Arska

      Ala-Arska

      @Fidel: Thank you :lol:

      @Honor_Hand: Indeed it was great seeing as a youngster, now it shows some age ^_^

      New one should be decent, haven't seen it either yet :awesome:

    4. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      @Ala-Arska Lol it must certainly show some age. I recently got in the mood of seeing all of the old Star Wars movies and wanted to start with Episode IV and, even though it is classic, the first thing I thought at the start of the movie was "Damn, production values have most certainly skyrocketed over the last few decades" xD

       

      Let's hope it is decent, at least. :awesome:

       

  11. Max: The Curse of Brotherhood Perfect Brother You unlocked every trophy of the game! The feeling, when a Plat image is a pair of glasses and you can't see a damn thing. Thank you Max! But your brother is in another castle! Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is a very decent 2D puzzling platformer. Familiar stuff, except no princess in sight This is a genre that rarely sees new stuff nowadays. M:TCoB doesn't offer anything new to the table, but plays well with dealt cards. There is the use of a pen, though. With it, you can make branches, vines, rocks, water sprouts and fire to get you to that unreachable place. Drawing isn't a revelation either, but works fine for the most parts. Only when you're in a hurry becomes creating inaccurate and annoying It's a fairly short game overall, but you'll be dying a lot thanks to either some cheap trap placement or Max's glitchy jumping-off-from ropes. Besides not grabbing things properly, there's also a glitch involving in getting all amulets in game. One can have all 18, but counter stucks at 17. Happened to me, and it really pissed me off. Cloud saving beforehand doesn't help, re-installing game doesn't help. Shouting at screen doesn't help The only solution was to delete save and start the game from scratch. And collect them all in the order they appear! That's my pro tip to you, guys Even with some control issues and stubborn collectables, Max is a recommendable for a low price. See, I can be cheap too
  12. Did you know that Nightwing has once been ranked as #1 Sexiest Male Character in Comics? Dick's, Selina's and Tim's combined 564 DLC medals brings my Arkham City (PS3) completion to a nice 100% =)

      Thank you very much, guys :awesome:

      @Spaz and @Honor_Hand: Yup, it's quite a long time for only 6 trophies. I usually don't invest in 

      time sinks like that, but I only did it now 'cause I wanted over 95 % completion rate here :)

      Perhaps it's good to play something else inbetween those challenge sessions :lol:

  13. Non-Plat news for a change: 8-bit Adventure Anthology: Volume 1 100% (and currently the Fastest Achiever with a pretty good time, if I do say so myself) =)

      Wow, I really have try it out now (at least on my wife's account, if the online part suddenly

      fails on me) ^_^

      I've seen it being cheap on store, digital and physical wise, so I'd just might check it out :lol:

    3. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      Congratulations! 👍

       

      Arkham City is one of my favorite games on the PS3. So far I've only played City and Asylum and, out of those 2, I'd say City is the best. I still need some catching up to do with the rest of the series though. Pretty amazing games in general. :)

    4. Ala-Arska

      Ala-Arska

      @Honor_Hand: Much appreciated :lol:

      Absolutely fantastic games indeed. I remember when Asylum came out,

      I couldn't believe how good a comic book game can be ^_^

      Damn, out of likes already, I'm giving them out like candy today (I'll remember you tomorrow) :lol:

  15. Batman: Arkham City (PS3) Platinum Congratulations! Ummm...is that a new gadget in your pants, or are you just happy to see me? Nananananananana BatmaaanArkhamCityPlattedAfterOver5Yeaaarrsss.....eat dirt, backlog! I initially gave up on Platinum because I was a scaredy cat, fearing of New Game+ and Riddler Challenges. What an emo baby I was Arkham City is one of the most finest, well thought and detailed games I've had the privilege to play on PS3. Graphics are top notch, even after 5+ (six?) years. I love it how hilariously muscular every single dude is, I guess pumping iron is all there is in Gotham Music deserves a full 10 in terms of scale, scene setting and basically just oozing Dark Knight atmosphere. And that end credits song...PORTAL vibes Those tunes are beautifully made to enhance a tight combat situation, or to ramp up the tension when sneaking around enemies like a Predator Main story, side quests and even smaller characters offer a lot to the table. There's a cavalcade of villains here, and they all have their MO's well laid out. Voice acting is, as well predicted, superb to say the least. Kevin Conroy/Mark Hamill never fail a line, they're godly! Props to Batman's macho dialogue: "Talia Al Ghul: Thousands of warriors have fallen in pursuit of the Demon. Would-be successors have proven to be nothing more than children battling the enormity of creation. Batman :...I've seen worse." Arkham City as a sandbox isn't the smallest one, but not staggeringly big either. Just perfect to have tons of fascinating secrets in its alleys and buildings. It does have an awful lot of Riddler collectables, though. Combined with Catwoman's ones, there's 440 different "trophies" to get. Half of that would've sufficed. Luckily you don't have to collect them again in NG+, other side quests have to be done again though. I didn't mind the "chore", I was happy to do it twice About those challenges...there's Combat and Predator ones, and campaigns with both mixed in + modifiers (time limit, less health etc.) that you have to use in them. Combat ones were a joke, even with restricting mods. I got them all with my first try, that's how easy they were. Made my puny ass feel like a bad ass Predator was intimidating at first, but even those weren't too hard. Just took oodles of patience and hiding in vents like a little girly girl for dozens of minutes Batman: Arkham City is an experience you don't want to miss. Like Rocky said: "You, me or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life...except Batman!"
