  1. Well, i did another playthrough from scratch (downloaded the game again and deleted profile save plus other saves) and played entirely offline. The previously glitched trophies popped (Family, Baby you're a rich man and Hole in your pocket), but the new boss didn't. I had read that they were cumulative, so i started a new game for the kill informants, just you and me and earn 10k kickback trophies. I flipped all 16 again and nothing. As a last resort, i did another playthrough to test a bug in the journal. When you give the gambling racket to Vito, the journal states that you gave it to Burke and viceversa. Giving it to Cassandra logs it correctly. I tried that, because someone in a post here said it had done so and got the tropht, but nothing. So i have flipped 80 bosses in total. I'm tired of playing the game back to back this entire week. It's specially frustrating because i check the latest achievers for the trophy and there's people getting it every day.
  2. The same happened to me. The New Boss and family didn't pop, neither did Baby, You Are a Rich Man or Hole in your pocket. I'm currently doing a second playthrough to see if it works but i got $500,000 already and the trophy doesn't pop. I'm gonna continue trying offline and see if it works that way. I have 4 bosses left to flip. Edit: well, it didn't work. I uninstalled the game and i'm gonna download it again, without the dlc, and play offline from the beginning. I tried playing offline but the game didn't let me load my save because it had dlc content and, apparently, it needed to validate them by connecting. I don't know if this is always like this, but it was annoying.
  3. Didn't they give SotC (PS3) with PS PLUS a few years back? I remember it being part of the IGC when i bought Plus for the first time (because they gave Bioshock Infinite).
  4. The same happened to me. I was level 1 during the tutorial, got to level 2 after finishing it. When i got to the main menu, i was level 700 out of nowhere. I didn't pay much attention to it and started to create custom tracks for the trophy. When i played a track created by other player, i got all the prestige trophies at the same time. I panicked and came here to find that it has happened to others. Edit: i can confirm that my whole stats are messed up. It shows i have more than 60 hours of game time, 3519 km in distance covered and like 28 million credits earned (though i don't have that amount, i started with 10 thousand). All my single player and multiplayer stats are busted and all the SX challenges appear as achieved, except for King of the championships. The tracker of challenges at the end of races, however, is tracking everything correctly and do not appear as completed. This is in the "personal records" tab on the profile. The others tabs (Multiplayer stat., Single player stat. and SX Challenges) are ok and show my stats accurately.
  5. They look really nice. Thank you!
  6. #113 Grand Theft Auto IV Taking A Liberty I bought this game in 2013. At the time, i didn't care that much about trophies and i had other games to play, so i didn't start it right at that moment. A few months later, i decided to get the plats of the games i had started on my profile. And then i set the goal to plat every game i start on it. That's when i started to dive into the backlog. I saw GTA IV, the guides said it had a difficulty of 9 or 10 out of 10, so i said "well, seems like i will play on another account". I kept playing other games, bought a few more, the PS Plus backlog started to grow and GTA IV was left behind without even touching it. However, in recent months i started to clean up the backlog. I started with the games i had bought. I did them all but then i saw GTA IV. "Is the MP still working?" i asked myself. I checked the excellent guide by ProfBamBam and it did give me hope. But my attention was required in other things besides gaming, so i didn't have the time to be scheduling boosting sessions. This year, my free time has increased, so i checked the guide again and said "let's do it". Going back to a game this old, i was surprised the way it looked: really fuzzy. I expected performance issues, not that. I learned that the initial multiplat games available on ps3 had a hard time with development, so they didn't look, or perform, very well. A few hours and messing with the settings helped me get used to it and i joined a boosting session here on the site. I had borrowed a console from a friend a few months back, so i had the means to boost plenty of things by myself. I got the MP trophies out of the way in a week. Then i left the game resting there, while i got the plats on some PS Plus games before the membership expired, because i didn't plan to renew it. On july, i came back and started the story. I had played almost every GTA (3d universe) when i was a teenager, so while i enjoyed them, the story wasn't that memorable to me. GTA V came out recently and i was older, so that's the exception. With GTA IV, however, i enjoyed the story a lot and i really liked Niko as a protagonist. I don't know if i appreciated it more because of my age or if it is really that good. I had a blast doing the story and i went full focus on the road to 100%. I finished that in aproximately 8 days. What a ride. I'm both proud and relieved to have done this and i really should have started before.
  7. I just noticed this thread. Count me in! I was cursing my luck because i just got a platinum a few minutes ago and i hadn't signed up. But i read that you will still count them and i felt relieved.
  8. It's totally doable, but have to be willing to put in the time in the game and to not get frustrated too easily.
  9. I second the thing about watching the speedrun videos. They're really helpful. Maybe you won't be able to do the exact same things as them, but they will give you great tips that you can put into practice. Also, patience. I love this game, so i was very patient with it. Because i'm a masochist, i decided to do my akumu run with no upgrades, to get the two trophies in one run. Hell of a ride. I don't recommend it, as i did on PS3 and each loading time after every death was around 35 seconds. Still, patience. If you love the game, you will enjoy the challenge. These were my stats at the end.
  10. Yes, only the plat. After all, your question is for hardest platinum
  11. For difficulty by itself: Max Payne 3. For tedious "difficulty", it has to be Binary Domain. Oh, Black Ops 2 was annoying with the "complete all challenges" in each chapter and the easter egg zombies trophy. Fortunately, it was possible to do it with only two people instead of four.
  12. #75 - Alice: Madness Returns I wanted to play this game since... a lot of time. I'm not even a fan of Wonderland or something, but i just saw it once and i knew i had to play it. Man, it didn't disappoint. I love the aesthetic of the game, the art direction it's outstanding. I loved it. I did the 100% with the original American McGee's Alice. It wasn't that fun for the frustrating controls, but i felt satisfied when i finished it. Sadly, this game has one of the ugliest platinum names i've seen. Still, i loved it a lot.
  13. PS3-PS3 works as long as both players have their psn ID's are linked to Steam accounts that have Portal 2 in their respective libraries. I got Professor portal and Friendlist with benefits connecting to other player and had no problems. PS3-PC also works, but the PS player has to be linked to a Steam account with the game, too. At least i think so, because i tried to connect to someone yesterday with my secondary ps3 account that is not linked to a Steam account with the game and the connection dropped when trying to play with someone on pc.
  14. The hardest thing was getting the easter egg done. My brother and i were carefully following the steps to get it, carrying a zombie or two from one place to another to prevent the wave ending. Even then, we failed a lot of times. I know the trophy is supposed to done with four players online, but when i found out i could be done with two people on split screen... i didn't doubt. I guess it was my own fault
  15. Sign me up. I have the plats for Uncharted 1, 2 and 3.
