  1. Platinum #147: Final Fantasy X (Vita)

    First trophy: 7th Feb 2016 9:13:45 PM

    Time to platinum (real time): 4 years, 4 months, 3 weeks

    Time to platinum (in game time): Around 100 hours

    Platinum rarity (PSNProfiles): 8.76%

    Game rating: 9/10

    Trophy rating difficulty: 5/10

     

    Man, what a ride! After approximately 60 hours of grinding on and off, I finally got around to finish this beast of a game. I love this game very much, but to be honest, the grinding was really unnecessary (I look at you, sphere grids). Nonetheless, I enjoyed the ride, especially since I was playing on the beautiful Vita, so the grinding could be done anywhere, anytime. I really think that the story of this game is among the best of any Final Fantasy games and that the characters are extremely well done. I loved this game since the first time I played on release day on my Playstation 2 and will always love it. Instant classic!

  3. Platinum #146: Far Cry 4 (PS4)

    First trophy: 11th Aug 2019 7:11:40 PM

    Time to platinum (real time): 10 months, 1 week, 5 days

    Time to platinum (in game time): Around 25 hours

    Platinum rarity (PSNProfiles): 17.46%

    Game rating: 8.5/10

    This game was my first Far Cry game and let's say that I'm a fan now! Even if the game is kinda old at this point, I had a lot of fun. The story was forgettable, but the gameplay really shined and kept me going. The gunplay was fluid and really fun and it was also really cool to explore the map. Which game would you recommend going for now in the Far Cry series? I have Far Cry 3 Remastered, Far Cry 5 and Far Cry A New Dawn.

      Far Cry 3 *Classic Edition. Speaking of, why didn't you do that one first? You would have seen how FC4 evolved from FC3, and it wouldn't have felt too rough because you would have started from there rather than going backwards.

  6. Platinum #145: I Am Setsuna (PS4)

    Well, let's say I'm disappointed. I've been eyeing this game for months now, thinking this was exactly what I needed: a JRPG based on old-school JRPGs with tons of reference, good music and a great gameplay. Let's say that the only good thing about this game was the combat system. The story was boring and convulated. The fact that there's no voice acting really hurt the game in my opinion. The game was so generic, there's literally only one setting and all the dungeons looks the same. I feel like this game started with a good idea but the devs ran out of time and decided to cut a lot of content. There's literally empty towns on the map that don't serve any purpose. My recommendation would be: find yourself a better JRPG, there's tons around!

    Oh boy, where do I start with this? Let me say this first: the game is extremely fun and I loved the time I spent with it. It's very unique and an experience I never experienced before and that's pretty rare in this day and age. The issue is: it's very buggy on PS4. Like... extremely buggy. Framedrops all the time, losing saves, collectibles not counting, glitch platinum, etc... So if you're interested in buying this game on PS4, hold on a couple weeks until everything is fixed. The game's is very much worth the wait, you won't be disappointed when everything's fixed.

      Sounds like pain at the ass and i don't mean from shark bite. I hope they fix what it looks like fairly fun game.

    A very good game with an awful trophy list, hence why it took so long for me to get the platinum. The game itself is very good with the classic feel of Tomb Raider. The multiplayer trophies are just extremely long and boring to do. The online has never been alive anyway, so boosting alone was not a good experience. The good thing is that I had a lot of fun with the single player, even though some trophies had a chance of bugging out, I didn't experienced it myself.

      The worst part in Tomb Raider games is that you have to watch Lara die over and over again. It's soul-crushing to lose her so many times.

  12. Hey guys! Quick question: Which level is the best to level up for the Overpowered trophy? I'm having a hard time grinding this out and I'm sure there's a great level to level up, but I haven't found it yet. The lack of information about this game is also an issue. Also, which level is the best to get the Mass Destruction trophy? I haven't had any luck yet with this one. Thanks! :-)
  13. The level I grinded was 5-1 on Extreme if I remember correctly. I was able to gain almost 2 levels per run. Also, don't forget that you need to collect all the hidden skill points in all the levels.

    After more than 8 years, I finally got it! As you can see, it's time for backlog time! I don't want to buy any more new games until I finish all the games I bought along the years and this one was on my list. It was basically a level up grind, but it's not for nothing since I really want to do all the DLCs too. Great game!

    Oh my, this one took a while, but the game was so fun that it didn't matter much. In my opinion, this is the best Borderlands game around and the best co-op game. It's just so much fun to play with a buddy and farm stuff over and over again to become stronger. The gameplay is great, the story is always very funny and entertaining and the different characters add to the variety. The DLCs were also all pretty fun and different. All in all, this is just a great game!

    After more than 4 years, it's finally done! I started this game with my kid and we had a lot of fun together playing this. The Skylanders franchise is very underrated in terms of gameplay and fun, pretty much all of these games are great! Of course, you need a lot of figurines to be able to do a couple of trophies, hence why the rarity of the platinum. Pretty fun game if you can get it on the cheap!

    What a fantastic co-op experience! Sure, the game is a little predictable and the gameplay can be clunky at time, but it's so well crafted in terms of co-op that I can forgive the game. The story was really cool and the twist at the end, we didn't see it coming at all! If you're searching for a short co-op game to play with a non-gamer or with a friend, I would recommend this one in a heartbeat. Do it!

    This game is a really cool shoot em' up and I LOVE shoot em' up games. The bosses are really cool and the story is also enjoyable. The art style is also very flashy, even though sometimes it's really hard to see the enemies on the screen. Why the 6.5 rating then? The game is very grindy and it's a shame. Not only in terms of trophy, but you actually need to grind to get past some levels as your ships are just not strong enough. So you need to replay and replay the same levels over and over again and it's a shame because the game is really cool, just very unbalanced.

Without going too much into spoilers territory, I really enjoyed the story behind this game. It was special and out of the ordinary. Even the second playthrough for the platinum was interesting since you get to know the characters in a different light and doing different choices was really enjoyable. I still need to play Beyond Two Souls, so that might be my next game in that genre. Recommended!
