  1. Okay two of these are trilogies and not single games but, 'eff it 😜: 1. Dead Space Trilogy 2. Mass Effect Trilogy 3. Metal Gear Rising: Revengence
  2. Claim to Fame: Soul Calibur 5 (2.85%) Walk of Shame: Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus-PS3- (52.62%)
  3. Backlogs. We know 'em, love 'em and quite possibly hate 'em. Right now, I'm trying to remove certain games from my backlog without adding new ones. And I think I'm on a roll, until a Flash Sale on PS Store brings that to a crashing halt My question is: How do you decide which games on your backlog list to tackle first? Do you pick games that you can plat' or 100% quickly? Or do you try and get the hard ones taken care of first so you can cruise through easy games later? My pattern is a little from Column A, a little from Column B. It all depends on how I'm feeling that day or week. Sometimes, I'll look at my list and just start playing something at random with the mindset of "This game has been uncompleted for entirely too long and needs to go" I'm curious to hear what other people have to say.
  4. A tie: Fallout: New Vegas-Platinum Trophy It was such an epic adventure that after the platinum popped, I was kind of sad that it was over. But I still remember that moment even today. Tekken 6-What a Nightmare That trophy caused me so much grief back in the day, I was relieved when I finally got it. Brings a smile to my face when I remember it πŸ˜‰
  5. Whoa, you must've been reading my mind, I was just thinking that about myself. I've gone back and forth between sticking with one game until it's platinum/100% or spreading the love. I guess it depends on how much time you have to devote to gaming and what your ultimate goal is. I have a guy in my friends list that sticks to 1 game until it is 100%'d. It seems to work out well for him since he is outpacing me when it comes to platinum/100% games 😁 Me, I think I'm going to switch to 1 game at a time for now to try and clear some of my back log.
  6. Damn, that is very impressive. Off the top of my head I've only gone on a 2 month streak. Then I decided to play a game where ~85% of the trophies are ultra rare and really grindy (EDF 2025) so I lost my streak.
  7. Couldn't tell exactly. Between military deployment its' been multiple times that I was off PSN for months at a time. There was a 6 month period that I wasn't playing video games after I started dating a certain lady. I gave up playing video games to focus more attention on her, like all good boyfriends πŸ™„. Let's just say, I wish I hadn't given up PS3 for her since it caused me to close my old profile and start a new one (read one of my old blog posts to understand the story).
  8. 100% or Platinum: I would love to 100% or plat' every game on my profile but that is almost impossible or very improbable. But, I've come to accept that and have moved on. So I put together plans on how many trophies I will try and earn for each game I play and hope for the best. New Game Purchase List: All I can say is "Damn those PSN Flash Sales!!!" πŸ˜‰ I try not to, but then along comes a sale on a game that I was curious about playing and the next thing you know I'm downloading it off the Playstation Store. I've got 190 games on my profile but I don't have all of them now. So I try to only buy the games that are on "The List". Old Game Completion Checklist: At this point, I consider every game on this list an old game in the need of completion. Miscellaneous Goals: 60 platinums by Dec. 31 2017. I'm slightly behind on that schedule. I've thought about just playing and plat'd the easy games on my list but I'm not sure if I should or not. I keep thinking I should do the hard ones first. I'm so confused πŸ€” Multiplayer Game Checklist: I try to avoid MP trophies when I can. Rarely do I find a game where the MP trophies are worth while. Right now, I'm enjoying the heck out of RE: Revelations 2 in Raid Mode. I'm late to the party playing it but it's still alot of fun. It's a shame that there are only 3 trophies tied to Raid Mode. I know you can play it solo but it would be cool if there where more trophies tied to it. Maybe that would attract a large number of players to it. I'm less of a competitive MP player. I enjoy more Co-op MP style games (Horde Mode or Story Mode) like RE: Revelations 2, Borderlands, Mass Effect 3, COD Zombies etc. I applaud you good sir/madam. That is dedication. I wish I could do that but life has dealt me a different hand. I would need 90 days of paid vacation to 100% my profile 😁
  9. Notice I said pretty much. Not all...pretty much...not exclusive...pretty much That doesn't mean that people need to disrespect other people's opinions, desires or ideas. We can get along if everyone respects one another. πŸ˜‰
  10. Yeah, It's def. for people who like to grind. I've got +41 hrs. into right now and I still have not come close to beating 25% of the game yet. Mostly because I'm grinding for high lvl. weapons and health/armor upgrades 😁
  11. I'd go with: Guacamelee Scott Pilgrim vs. the World Castle Crashers Also, Cloudberry Kingdom is good for a few laughs...and broken controllers 😁
  12. Hey there, You know this is a website pretty much devoted to trophy hunting right? People on this site (myself included) enjoy the meta game involved in trophy hunting, 100% completion runs, ultra rare trophy collecting, etc. We all care about that stuff in various ways. It's not shitty in the least. You can think it's shitty but the moment you purposely come into a specific thread about trophy hunting and belittle other people's enjoyment, that's when you become an asshole. I know you said you don't really care about anyone's opinion of your character but maybe you should keep those kinds of opinions to yourself unless asked, o.k.? You don't want to gain a rep as the person most people would kick down a flight of stairs would you? 😜 Yup, I remember getting this trophy back in the day. I didn't really think about it much at the time, I just saw that there was a trophy that took about 60 sec. to get so I did it with another player I was boosting something else with. Who knew I was safeguarding my Darksiders 2 platinum at the time? 😏
  13. It is funny, shame about all those trophies though. I can def. say that I miss the trophies more than her though
  14. Trying to plat' Killzone 3 and RE:ORC by the end of the week. Also going for 100% completion on Galaga Legions DX.
  15. 1) Playing games I had no intention of playing beyond the one time. Now, they are on my list and I keep wondering will I ever buckle down and play them again. 2) Starting a new main account and losing all my previous trophies when my old account was closed. It's a long story involving an ex-girlfriend and being reminded of her every time I looked at it (o.k. not so long ). Man, it's a shame that I didn't keep it, I would be at least 10 levels higher than I am now
  16. I'm with you on that. I was expecting trophies tied to S-ranking battles/challenges/difficulty modes like other games Platinum has developed. Being able to buy trophies is a very strange concept since it does defeat the purpose of having them (complete a specific task and earn a reward). What is the gaming world coming to? Hopefully more information will become available before the NA launch of the game, Platinum is one of my favorite developers and I hope they don't go down a path that will lead them to "ruin" *cough* Sega, Konami, Capcom *cough*
  17. Yup, Call of Duty: WAW is a problem. Veteran mode with added grenade spam makes for a delightful experience.
  18. Street Fighter x Tekken I don't actually hate the game, but I'm really disappointed in it as a whole. Mission Mode is the problem. Some of the missions are just really lame and difficult to the point of being unfun. I just wish Capcom had made the missions a test of fighting game skills and less about survival matches against op characters.
  19. Like other people above have said, way more than I'm willing to spend. I will usually buy DLC to a game I like, but the problem is that DLC prices hardly ever change to reflect the marketplace on PSN. The DLC for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is $9.99 for each story driven DLC. That's almost $30 for all three. The price hasn't budged since 2009, yet you can buy the game new for under $10. as much as I love the flash sales on PSN, I wish that they would start including DLC to those sales.
  20. This Or this...
  21. Tekken Tag Tournament HD,baby. It's pretty easy, although the trophy for bowling over a 200 is annoying as heck. The 3 strikes in a row can get frustrating too.
  22. Less about regrets, more about shame. As in "it's a shame I'll never be able to plat' (insert game) because of (insert reason)". I truthfully regret nothing about my trophy list except what I mentioned above . ...as to my mention of GTA V and Lego: The Hobbit... ...it's a shame I might never plat' GTA V cuz' i find it kinda boring ...it's a shame that its' taken me so long to play Lego:The Hobbit see, all good
  23. Brink. I know I rail against the game frequently but it's mostly because I was so disappointed with it esp. since it had such an impressive pedigree (Splash Damage).
  24. Currently sitting at 4,785
  25. At least 30 more platinums by the end of 2017. I'm going for more than that but I will be personally disappointed if my plat' list isn't 60 by Dec 31
