  1. Alright, I should be good now. I guess I can always use this post if need be. The checklist is far from done, but it's coming along nicely so far. I still have quite a few sections to complete, but should hopefully be done with those by the end of this weekend. My PS3/PS4 backlog is gonna kill me, lol. Edit: Well, the checklist is pretty much done now. As stated, it will be updated once per week. Regarding my backlog, I have about 34 Vita games, 60 PS3 games, and 76 PS4 games I'm interested in playing. Let's see how much I can get done. RIP me.
  2. Generic title is generic. It's not even entirely 1337 but whatever. After being encouraged by a couple of friends and as a result of trying to be more active on PSNP, I've finally decided to do one of these. This is gonna be a basic checklist in terms of format and style really, since I'm another one of those non-creative plebs. I will update my checklist once a week, during the weekend since I have more time. Sections that are included and their breakdown: Background (History & Consoles) Backlog Goals (General Goals / UR Plats / Game Series / Seasonal Goals / Yearly Goals) Milestones (Official & Unofficial Milestones) Stats Recommendations - thanks to @Meachamp- for the recommendation. Section(s) that are NOT included: Wishlist - do I really need one now? List of ALL Platinums - considering how many I have, I don't wanna spend an eternity listing all of those. I might start listing the ones I get from now on instead. BACKGROUND To start off, a little bit about my gaming history and the consoles I've owned/currently own. It's not really exciting compared to other people's, but here goes anyway: Atari (late 1990s): I started gaming when my parents got an Atari in the late 1990s, although I can't remember what model it was (neither can my parents). All I remember from that time is that we only had it for a brief time. That's it, really. PC (early 2000s - present): I started to get into PC gaming afterwards, playing more than a hundred PC games across the years (some religiously). My Top 3 favorite games/series at the time were, in this order: Gruntz, Command & Conquer, and NBA Live 2003. My interest in PC gaming eventually dwindled a few years ago, and that's when I mostly became invested in PlayStation. I currently have more than 100 games on my Steam account (guess how I got most of them? That's right, Humble Bundles - both a blessing and a curse ), but have only played about 10% of those. My most played game on there is AudioSurf (63 hours so far), which I still occasionally play. Game Boy Advance (2004 - 2006): I initially got a GBA purely for Pokémon FireRed, as I was so into the Pokémon craze back then (seriously, I used to have a Pokédex, a Pokéball, pogs, followed the anime series for a while, etc.). I ended up playing it regularly for the next year until I got bored of Pokémon altogether. I also got other random games for the GBA, but didn't play them as much. I decided to get rid of my GBA in favor of a PS2 in 2006. PlayStation 2 (2006 - 2008): Ahh, the wrestling days. WWE was my new addiction during that time, so I ended up playing SmackDown! vs Raw 2006 the most. I missed out on a lot of great PS2 games because of that, but caught up on some of these thanks to remasters/emulations on PS3/PS4. My PS2 died in 2008, and I subsequently went back to PC gaming for a few years. PlayStation 3 (July 7, 2011 - present): Randomly following E3 2011 (the only E3 I've entirely followed and watched all the conferences for) reignited my interest in PlayStation, and I got a PS3 shortly thereafter. Definitely the console I've spent the most time with. I've played about 200 PS3 games over the years, and still play and cherish it to this day. There are still at least a few dozen PS3 games in my backlog that I'm interested in and would like to play eventually (more on that below when I stop being lazy). I got a second PS3 on October 21, 2017 because my first PS3 wouldn't read discs anymore, so I thought I'd get another one instead of fixing it. It also made self-boosting online trophies possible (and boosting in general easier). It was worth it for Grid Autosport alone, since the online trophies in that game take an average of 75 hours per person. It truly is a time-saver when it comes to that. PlayStation Vita (December 23, 2012 - present): I got a Vita as I thought it'd be awesome to play games on the go and wanted to finally own a PlayStation handheld. I didn't spend a lot of time on it during the first couple years due to the PlayStation Store not being available in my country until December 2014 and physical Vita games being scarce in my country. But I'm glad the PlayStation Store was made available eventually as I've been having a lot of fun with my Vita since then. Most of the games I've played are indies and let me tell you, there are a lot of hidden gems among them. PlayStation 4 (February 15, 2016 - present): Although I still had a lot of Vita and PS3 games yet to be played, I decided to get a PS4 to get even more games in my backlog! I gotta admit, many of the PS4 games I've played are of the easy/quick type and remasters/stacks, but as I'm not into the former anymore, I've been changing that lately and getting more challenging platinums and playing different kinds of games instead. BACKLOG Listed below are all the games I actually wanna play, not my entire backlog. PlayStation Vita: PlayStation 3: PlayStation 4: GOALS This section includes my trophy hunting goals. General Goals: Maintain a ~98-99% completion rate (100% is impossible due to Homefront being unobtainable, but I'm not bothered by that). Decrease Average Rarity to under 40% Get 10 sub-1% plats (8/10) Reach 75 UR plats (66/75) Reach 750 UR trophies (574/750) UR Plats / Trophies: - 10 sub-1% plats (8/10): Warhawk (0.33%) - 22/04/2018 Far Cry 2 (0.52%) - 26/02/2018 Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends (PS4) (0.62%) - 09/06/2018 Bound (0.66%) - 30/05/2018 Lumo (0.70%) - 08/10/2017 Red Faction: Guerrilla (0.76%) - 29/01/2016 Starhawk (0.91%) - 13/07/2017 Starwhal (0.96%) - 06/09/2017 Potential candidates: Invisible, Inc.

"Official" milestones are ones that are counted and tracked by PSNP and will be highlighted in green, while "unofficial" milestones are additional ones I've added and will be highlighted in red. Trophy Milestones: Upcoming Trophy Milestones: 16,000th Trophy: TBA 375th Platinum: TBA 400th Platinum: TBA Level Milestones: STATS This section includes a few random statistics from my profile that are tracked by PSNP. Games Played: 384 PlayStation 4: 124 PlayStation 3: 170 PlayStation Vita: 54 Multiplatform: 36 Trophies: 15,511 Platinum: 365 Gold: 1,703 Silver: 4,117 Bronze: 9,326 Average Rarity: 42.79% Ultra Rare: 574 Very Rare: 1,008 Rare: 2,399 Uncommon: 5,510 Common: 6,020 RECOMMENDATIONS This section will be filled with game recommendations from you folks, which you can post below if you don't see them in my backlog. Whether/when I get to them is an entirely different story thanks to my large backlog. But depending on if/how much said game piques my interest, I might get to it sooner rather than later.
  3. Hey, dude. I thought I'd share my Vita game recommendations over here. I'm only gonna list the games/series that I really liked: Most of these games even have stackable lists on PS3 and/or PS4 (Code: Realize, Danganronpa, Dead Nation, Frozen Synapse Prime, Gravity Rush, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, Sly Cooper, Steins;Gate, Tearaway, and Volume). I just thought I'd mention that since I know you don't mind stacking. Trophy Hall of Champame. See, you're not the only non-creative person. Seriously though, this is shaping up to be a nice checklist. It's a good thing you started it that early on, let me tell you that. As for the style/format, don't worry too much about it, especially if you're not the creative type. It's good as it is, but I guess if you wanna try something different eventually then go for it. In any case, I look forward to reading your future posts here. I look forward to that day.
  4. I sure as hell can't wait to play this game again sometime. This is one of my favorite open-world games, and to be able to stack it is just fantastic.
  5. Well, the Warhawk platinum didn't last long as my rarest trophy after all (less than 2 months). :P I just got the 100% in Blacklight: Retribution, thus now making its "platinum" trophy my rarest one. I also nabbed the Fastest Achiever spot in the process. :dance: I rarely go for the Fastest Achiever spot given how much meticulous planning etc. it requires, but as I was making good progress with leveling up, I thought I'd gun for it.

     

    Thoughts on the game and its trophies here:

    TL;DR: A lot of fun, a few noticeable bugs that could've been fixed, fairly easy trophy list.

      Nicely done! That no-gun glitch seemed to happen every now and then.. The hardsuit getting stuck in the air is a new one, though. :lol:

  6. Difficulty: 3/10 Enjoyment: 8/10 Wow, this game is such a pleasant surprise. I don't play F2P games but thought I'd go for one for a change. The end result? I really like it. Up there with the likes of Crysis 2, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, and The Last of Us in terms of MP enjoyment for me. Some great fast-paced action to be had, especially on the smaller maps. Getting into a Hardsuit and going on a rampage never gets old... until you take a rocket to the face. Surprisingly though, it seems like a lot of people skipped the Training, as I didn't have that happen to me as much as I thought I would. A lot of customization options for those who like that, although I don't really care about that and only used the loadout that was suggested by the PSNP trophy guide. That said, it does have a few noticeable bugs that I wish the developers would've fixed to make it even more polished, such as: Spawning with no gun when you first join a match. Basically, your character does the gun-holding animation, except that there's no gun, so you can't shoot. You can still switch to and use your knife, but what good would this do? It's only a minor annoyance though as it rarely happens and dying fixes it anyway, but still. Random crashes. ESPECIALLY when it happens near the end of a match you were doing well in. This really does hinder the overall experience quite a bit. Host migration taking forever to complete. Not just that, but everyone respawns back at camp when it's complete, which comes with a couple of side effects, e.g. if you were in a Hardsuit before it happened then you will lose it, and if it happens during a Search & Destroy match, the round will start from the beginning. Games like Crysis 2 do this best: it only takes a few seconds, and most importantly, the match resumes as usual afterwards. Hardsuits getting stuck in the environment. I'm not sure if this is a bug or intentional, but Hardsuits can get stuck in some spots of some maps. You can still move the camera and shoot, but you can also become an easy target since you're stuck. Getting out of your Hardsuit also results in your getting killed. The trophies are fairly easy and consist of tasks that you will complete while playing the game (most of them, at least). Ones like leveling up, playing 20 matches of this and that mode, getting 50 kills with each Hardsuit, and customizing your agent and weapons. It will take a little while to reach max level, but it's not too bad compared to other MP grinds. The game's still active enough even after all this time, thankfully. However, there are a few trophies that will pretty much need to be boosted. One of them is the one for killing 10 Hardsuits with the Flamethrower. Good luck trying to do that legit otherwise, given that it only counts when an enemy is in the Hardsuit at the exact same time it's destroyed, not to mention that the chances for that to happen are astronomically low since not many people use Hardsuits, you're bound to die while attempting it, and someone else might get the killing shot instead of you. You might also need to boost a couple of the "play X mode 20 times" trophies, depending on how active (or not) those modes are. These can all be done in private matches with another person, so you shouldn't really worry about them. But yeah, this game is going to my external HDD as I'll definitely revisit it for fun in the future.
  7. PCGameSupply (and other websites) still have the $10 and $20 cards in stock. I bought a $10 one last week and it worked as usual. I think it's only Amazon that's out of stock.
  8. #364 & 365 - Deformers (NA & EU version respectively) Top Form Collect all trophies Wow, no wonder this game's servers barely lasted a year. That was the longest display of the word "LAG" I've ever seen in my life. Sometimes that word would even get stuck there even though there wasn't any lag. Not to mention this and the many other problems this game and its servers have. I'm surprised they didn't go down while I was boosting, to be honest. I guess that compensates for the horrible luck I had finding a reliable boosting partner. Seriously, I had 4 people add me and none of them showing any real interest in boosting a game that doesn't even take long to finish and only takes 1 other person with 2 controllers to boost with. But @Fidel and his shenanigans came to the rescue and helped me finish off the rest of the trophies in a timely manner. I wanted to get this done ASAP given the state of the servers and my luck with boosting partners, so I'm glad he agreed to help me. Thanks a lot yet again man, you da real MVP. I don't wanna see Jigglypuff ever again, though... I gotta admit though, Form Ball mode was actually quite fun. It's like Rocket League but with those squishy things instead of cars. And with the soccer/football/whatever-you-wanna-call-it craze going on right now, this was an appropriate game to play.
  9. Hey @Zolkovo and co, I'd like to add another $20 PSN card. Gotta make the PSN card prize total $200!
  10. Forget about the grenade method that's mentioned elsewhere, there's a much easier and quicker way to get this Emblem. This method requires 4 people/accounts but will make sure you get at least 2 Emblems per match. The most I managed to get in a single match was 6 Emblems. The good thing about this method is that you don't need to equip anything other than the Proto-Harmonizer. Also, it takes into consideration that only 2 people are going for the trophy at once, but all 4 people might even be able to go for it at the same and yield the same results if they coordinate well. The method is as follows: Start a public 3v3 Akrid Survival match on Research Lab. Have the 2 people going for the trophy (let's call them P1 and P2) on one team and the others (let's call them P3 and P4) on the other team. Note: If you don't end up with your desired teams from the get-go, a couple of people will have to switch teams in-game by quitting the game and then re-joining. (e.g. Let's suppose P1 and P2 are going for the Emblem. If P1 and P3 end up on the NEVEC team, then P3 and P2 will have to quit the match, and P2 will need to rejoin first and then P3 will follow suit.) Play the game as usual and try to collect as much T-ENG as possible (500+ should be more than enough) until there are 5 minutes left on the timer. At this point, have everyone enter the Control Zone. Have P1 and P2 stand next to each other (but not very close), and P3 and P4 also stand next to each other, a few feet away from P1 and P2. Once everyone is set up, have P3 shoot P1 and P4 shoot P2 with whatever weapon you want (I used the Assault Rifle) a few times without killing them. How many times you can shoot the others without killing them depends on the weapon you're using. At the same time, have P1 and P2 throw Proto-Harmonizers at each other. Repeat Step 5 until the end of the match. Don't forget to have P3 and P4 wait a few seconds in-between each set of shots and P1 and P2 throw Proto-Harmonizers at each other whenever they get depleted. It's better if you can all communicate using voice chat and/or have 2 people use 2 PS3s each, but even if not, once you get the method down, you're guaranteed to get at least 2 Emblems per match. Repeat Steps 1-6 until all of you get the 20 Emblems. Hopefully this helps someone in the future. My boosting partner and I were stuck for a bit trying to figure out how to get this Emblem and whether there was a faster way than the grenade method, as that method was a hassle to do and didn't seem to work.
  11. Sphere Complete Unlocked all Sphere Cells. Another set of online trophies done.
  12. Does anyone happen to have Deformers and is looking to boost it? I made a gaming session but thought I'd ask here as well. I have the NA version but will do the EU stack as well. Servers were up last time I checked (yesterday).

    1. midgetstrawdog

      midgetstrawdog

      I have the EU version and only the EU version, do you know if the servers are region locked? If not I'd be down to boost

    2. cr1s

      cr1s

      I'm not really sure. Someone asked the same question on PST.org but didn't get an answer. I guess we could try, and if it doesn't work then I'll switch to the EU version. I've just added you on PSN. We can start as soon as I'm done boosting Lost Planet 3 if that's okay (in 2-3 days from now).

  13. Commander Shepard: You think I'm crazy, don't you? Urdnott Wrex: Sometimes crazy is the best way to go. - Mass Effect I thought I'd share a (not so) random quote from my favorite video game series of all time. Because I feel like "crazy" is the best way to describe this giveaway when it comes to both the concept and all those juicy prizes being offered! But I think it could use a bit more craziness. I'd like to offer a $20 PSN card as well as a Lifetime Premium Membership. I was following the previous thread as well and also thought it was a shame to see it end the way it did, as this is easily one of the best/funnest giveaway ideas I've ever seen. It's so nice to see you revive this giveaway and offer all them goodies, so I thought I'd contribute as well and give back to both the community and the site. And to everyone else, keep sharing all those awesome quotes! PS: Don't include me in the draw, obviously.
  14. It's up on the EU PlayStation Store but can't be bought yet. This one has a local co-op mode as well. I loved the first one, so I'm curious to see how this one will fare in comparison. Edit: Never mind, the price is now showing. £15.99 on the UK store. Not bad! The trophy list should be up soon enough. Edit 2: And it's now up on the US store as well. $19.99. Edit 3: The trophy list is now up.
  15. Sign me up, please! My current Vita backlog consists of the following games: 99Vidas Alone With You BigFest Bridge Constructor Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (EU) - 81% Dex Downwell Dungeon Punks F1 2011 Flame Over Freedom Wars Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved Grand Kingdom Helldivers HTOLNIQ: The Firefly Diary Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy Jak II Jak 3 La-Mulana EX Little Deviants Metal Gear Solid 2 Metal Gear Solid 3 MXGP Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee HD OlliOlli 2: Welcome To Olliwood Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines Persona 4 Golden Persona 4: Dancing All Night Ratchet & Clank 2 Ratchet & Clank 3 Rayman Origins Rocketbirds 2: Evolution Senran Kagura: Estival Versus Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment I'll try to play 1-3 Vita games per month (depending on length), although I can be moody when it comes to choosing what games to play next sometimes.
