  1. I did the math and it would take about 140-160 hours of grinding in DCUO to get the last few trophies for collecting style sets. With just one silver taking around 30-40 hours. As fun as that sounds, I think I'll call it for now. I'll just keep logging in to get the free stuff and doing the weekly quests until maybe one day I get enough to pop the trophies. At the very least, I'm happy getting it to 45%.

  2. Anything that was in development before the buyout should be coming to all platforms. It would probably be too expensive to break those contracts, and a really dumb PR move. Microsoft also may just let games come to all platforms anyway. They've already done so before with stuff like Cuphead and Minecraft.
  3. #175 - Scott Pilgrim vs. The World - I still love this game. It's fun, the sprite work is amazing, the soundtrack is incredible, and all the little references scattered throughout the game are a joy to see. It's unfortunate that they didn't fix the online with this re-release, but I'm still happy it exists.

    I've still got a lot of unfinished and unplayed games to get to. So I'll probably take a break from going for plats for a while, and just focus on cleaning up stuff like DCUO and Neverwinter, and just beating games normally.

      Nice platinum! Don't know if I'll end up grabbing this one myself but it definitely looks fun. I played a very little bit of the original years ago and it was pretty good.

  4. Redownloaded and started up Neverwinter to try and get a few of the easier trophies, since the massive list was dragging my completion down. Apparently they just did a big overhaul and boosted my character to max. Which got me a few trophies for free. Now I just have to level a second character for the rest of the leveling trophies,which is pretty nice. Trophies seem a bit more  streamlined than what I remember. Stuff has just kind of been popping as I do the quests it tells me to do. It's a lot more fun than I remember too. It's not as good as FFXIV, Tera, or DCUO, but still a pretty solid experience.

      Interesting, I have the same issue. I tried the game once and never went back to it. I keep saying that I will. But other things get my attention. It is crazy the amount of dlc the game keeps adding and everytime I take another hit from it. Right now at 10 dlc packs and a whopping 96 trophies of which I have one. Only 15 uberdedicated people are still at 100%. How far do you plan on going on it?

      No idea lol. I want to at least max this second character. Seems like it's really easy to max now, so I'm hoping it wont take too long. Max level is 20 and I got to level 8 in just a couple of hours. From there, it just depends if I want to keep playing it or not.

  5. #174 - Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory - With that, I once again have all of the KH plats.

    The grind felt a bit unnecessary, since there's a lot of stuff in the game that's not connected to trophies they could have done instead, but it's a fun game. I really enjoyed it. It's basically just 3D Theatrhythm, except with KH music instead of FF music. I hope we get more games like this from Square.

    Next up is something I've been saving for 175, Scott Pilgrim!

      What were your thoughts on the song selection. I heard that there was mixed reception in regards to songs used

    3. ExHaseo

      ExHaseo

      @Dreggit I thought it was fine. It was kind of strange that some songs didn't make it in, but given there's 8 and a half games, not every song was going to make it anyway. I expected some to be missing and there's still plenty of great songs in the game.

  6. Plat rarities are so confusing sometimes. I'm working on the KH Melody of Memory plat right now. It's got a 28.66% plat rarity, even though it's painfully grindy.

    You have to beat every song on every difficulty, and then also kill 100,000 enemies. In addition to everything else. Just doing every song takes about 20 hours, and I was only at about 55k enemies once I had finished them all and gotten every other trophy. The guide notes that the best song for grinding kills has 416 enemies and takes about 2.5 minutes. For me, that's about 4 and a half hours of grinding on the same song to get the last 45k kills. That's with perfect runs. So it's realistically longer. For people that can't clear the song, they have to do something else.

    Sure, it's not especially difficult overall, but it's insane to me that so many people did this grind.

      It's funny. I thought the same thing when I played (and platted) MoM. But the number of owners here is really low, so I imagine that the people who played it are exactly the ones who would do the grindy stuff.

      PSN rarity is ~7.3% rarity. This site only has 7.5k owners and probably tends to have more people that'll dedicate themselves to accomplishing all the trophies. So really, only 2,148 people who have gone through the grind here. Not a ton of people.

    3. ExHaseo

      There's plenty of games on here that have similar numbers of players, with considerably less raw grind, that are rarer. Like Ys Lacrimosa of Dana, Akiba's Beat, and Saints Row 3 Remastered. There's no reasonable explanation that MoM is so common. It's just one of those games that more people got the plat for, despite how much work it is. It just happens sometimes. There's plenty of plats like this that should be considerably rarer considering the content and difficulty, that aren't. Like FFX, Bloodborne, and Persona 5. FFX alone is incredibly grindy, difficult, and long. It should easily be an UR plat, but it's not. Also, any plat above 5% on PSN is pretty common, so that doesn't exactly help the case.

  7. I can't believe people are seriously falling for this troll.
  8. For Meg to have a chance to appear, you have to at least clear Tartarus.
  9. I think I may have set my goal too high. It's been two weeks since I started working on getting my completion back to above 70%. So far, I've gone up 0.54%. If I stay at this pace, I'll only be at 65% by the end of the year.

      :hmm: If I were to try to tackle that, I would try to focus on your E-D catalogue since those are the items that weigh against you the most heavily. Some things that seem to be a reasonable time investment to bring you closer to your goal:

      • Resident Evil 4 - A 100%, sure, but can be easily completed within a day
      • Shantae: Risky's Revenge - Also a 100%, but can be completed in 6 hours, most take 15.
      • Ni no Kuni - Not really worth doing the whole game most likely, but isn't difficult to get to the end game. Since the goal is to raise overall progression you don't necessarily need to finish the game, just complete enough of it so that its 2% completion isn't weighing so heavily against you.
      • Dark Souls - Despite its reputation, it isn't really that difficult of a game. I'm not sure if the online still works on PS3, but if it does, it's even easier to finish. Though, this one might take a week to do or so depending on how well you take it on.
      • Resident Evil 2 - From what I hear, completing this one isn't terrible, so might be a good candidate.

      I appreciate the thought out post. Most of those games aren't finished for a reason and aren't on my backlog though. I'm not the type to play games just for trophies. I use trophies as a way to extend play time, not as the reason to play something. I do have RE4 and RE2 on my list though. I wasn't into the other ones enough to keep playing. My goal of 70% completion is just to give me a reason to go back to games I already own or want to play more, because I'm broke and shouldn't be buying anything new until next year.

      As long as you have fun playing your games, that's all the matters at the end of the day :)

  10. #173 - Saints Row The Third Remastered - SR3 is one of my favorite games, but this version is absolutely awful. It looks better, but it's so full of bugs that it's really hard to play at times. Especially when going for the plat. If I ever feel like playing it again, I'll definitely be opting for the vanilla version.

      Thanks! Hopefully you don't end up with many issues and can get it done.

      Nice one! Currently playing it myself on the ps5 and it's definitely a night day and difference between this and the PS3. Game runs at 60 fps with 4k resolution on the ps5. The only bad thing I can say about this is that it crashed on me twice in the span of 10-12 hrs of gameplay. 

  11. Just a couple more survival challenges and I'll have the Saints Row 3 Remastered plat. Going to take a break from that and do the DLC first. That way the plat can be the last trophy for the list.

      How in the world you get platinum in DC Universe Online in 5 minutes ?!

    2. ExHaseo

      ExHaseo

      Trophies only pop when you get a sub. You can level characters for free until you get all of the ones you need for the plat, and just auto-pop all the trophies at once.

  12. It's really annoying how DCUO has had maintenance every day for the past 3 days. I still have 5 sets to finish by the end of my sub, and being down in the middle of my day is making it really difficult. 

  13. If you've done both endings, you'll have one in your garage. You can use that for the vehicle theft mission.
  14. Finally getting close to the SR3 Remastered plat. Just need another 15 survival challenges to pop, and another... 13... vehicle thefts... Maybe I'm not as close as I thought.

      So you  got your file back?

    2. ExHaseo

      ExHaseo

      File was never lost. The install data was corrupted. But that's been fixed, for now anyway. I had to rebuild the database before it would let me delete it, then I had to reinstall.

    3. Dr_Mayus

      Dr_Mayus

      Well that is good at least.

  15. Guess I'm not getting the Saints Row 3 Remastered plat. It just crashed for the 100th time and now says it's corrupt. It wont boot, but also wont delete so I can try to reinstall.

      I'm on a PS4 Pro. I know nothing about PS5 performance specifically, but I've heard it also has issues on the Switch and PC versions as well. I imagine it's just as bad on PS5.

      Maybe try rebuilding the database and see if it will?

      Rebuilding let me delete it and I reinstalled it. It's still giving me a lot of weird issues, but that's just the game. I'm trying to do the vehicle thefts and they are by far the glitchiest part of the game so far. So often I'll get one, but it wont count, or the target vehicle will literally just disappear right in front of me. I had to reset one 8 times before it counted and another one 12 times before the vehicle would stay long enough for me to just get in.
