  1. #410 - Family Mysteries: Poisonous Promises Another addition to my collection of Artifex Mundi platinums. This one takes the form of a crime scene investigation setting where the main character is a detective. The story resembles something from an unseen episode of CSI: Miami but with David Caruso nowhere to be seen. I liked that show so I got some enjoyment from it. Artifex Mundi games are notorious for their bad voice acting and I have to say that this title features some of the worst yet. It's comically awful at times. Puzzle wise it was a little bit trickier than some of the more recent Artifex Mundi titles. It actually reminded me of the earlier games they released on PS4. Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 3/10
  2. #409 - Endless Fables: Dark Moor There was a jump scare or two in this Artifex Mundi game which I wasn't prepared for. Otherwise this was fairly par for the course from them. Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 2/10
  3. #408 - Ghost Files: Memory of a Crime Another solid hidden object game from Artifex Mundi with the usual beautifully drawn scenes. The story in this one was rather predictable and the voice acting was cheesy but I enjoyed it. Difficulty: 7/10 Enjoyment: 2/10
  4. #407 - The Secret Order: Shadow Breach This is one of the more interesting Artifex Mundi games I've played and it's a shame none of the other Secret Order games before this one (I believe this is the 7th installment) have made their way to PS4. The hand drawn scenes in these games are always a highlight but I thought they were particularly great looking in this one. Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 2/10
  5. #406 - Uncharted Tides: Port Royal An Uncharted game in name only and there wasn't a Drake or Sully to be found here Pretty standard fare from Artifex Mundi with the usual hidden object puzzles for eagle eyed landlubbers of all ages. Now where did I Ieave that bottle of rum? Enjoyment: 6/10 Difficulty: 2/10
  6. #405 - Dreamwalker: Never Fall Asleep Not the best Artifex Mundi offering as far as the story goes and it felt quite rushed in that respect but the gameplay and puzzles were solid. This one was fairly enjoyable. Enjoyment: 6/10 Difficulty: 2/10
  7. #404 - Scarlett Mysteries: Cursed Child I liked this one a lot more than Queen's Quest 4. Much better story and setting. Once again - a bit lacking in actual hidden object puzzles which is a trend I've noticed in more recent Artifex Mundi games. Enjoyed it though none the less. Enjoyment: 9/10 Difficulty: 2/10
  8. #403 - Queen's Quest 4: Sacred Truce Officially platinum number 403 although the last few trophies don't seem to have synced properly because of this trophy level update so I'm still displaying as 402. It's been a while since I played an Artifex Mundi game. Some of them are better than others and I'm less of a fan of the Queen's Quest series. It's pretty standard fare from them with the usual hidden object puzzles (not a lot of them this time though) to solve and if you've played any of their games before then you know what to expect. Enjoyment: 6/10 Difficulty: 2/10
  9. I went from Level 66 to Level 652 but it keeps flipping back and forth every time I sync my trophies. In addition to that, I just popped my 403rd plat and my PS4 and the PS app are displaying me as still having 402 platinums which is worrying.
  10. Personally I would have preferred it if they'd kept the current system but boosted the cap to Level 200, 300, or whatever. Seeing my trophy level jump overnight from Level 66 to Level 700 or whatever it ends up being is going to feel weird. Also why 999 and not 1,000?
  11. #402 - Star Wars Episode 1: Racer I had an absolute blast with this and it's a game that's very close to my heart having absolutely rinsed it on N64 as well as being based on my favourite scene from The Phantom Menace Did the platinum without the cheats or the debug menu as the game is fun anyway and it also doesn't really take that long to platinum to begin with. It's a simple plat for the most part but one or two races can be a bit tricky if you haven't bought the correct upgrades. If you're willing to deviate from simply playing as Anakin then I highly recommend Neva Kee and Mars Guo who are definitely my favourite pilots to race as. Enjoyment: 10/10 Difficulty: 4/10 (no cheats or debug menu used)
  12. #401 - Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King I've been playing this collection a lot on my Switch recently and saw a used copy on PS4 for quite a reasonable price at my local game store so I thought I'd grab it for the trophies. If you've played the original versions on Mega Drive/Genesis then you'll know how tough they are, particularly so in the case of The Lion King which hasn't aged well at all. Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 2/10 (Probably 9/10 without cheats and Watch mode)
  13. #400 - The Last of Us Part II Milestone Platinum Very proud and happy to make this my 400th milestone plat. A definite GOTY contender for me and a worthy follow up to the original. It's certainly a polarizing game for sure and I fully understand the issues that people had with it and their reasons for feeling letdown. For what it's worth I disagree with a lot of it. The story takes a very different direction to the one I had been expecting but I thoroughly enjoyed and I liked that it tackles very different themes to the original. I'll leave my spoiler thoughts in the box below: On a technical level I thought the game was a masterpiece and certainly Naughty Dog's biggest accomplishment yet in that respect. The time spent developing the game really shows in all of the small little details I spotted while playing and I've certainly never played a better looking game. I completed my first playthrough on Moderate for a fair challenge and did it blind whilst grabbing any collectables I spotted as I went. I managed to get all of the safes and training manuals in this playthrough just by exploring and they weren't hard to find at all to be honest. I then did a full second playthrough on Very Light with Permadeath active to finish off the remaining collectables, player and weapon upgrades. I briefly considered combining the Permadeath and Grounded playthroughs into one but I felt there was no need to make it any tougher than it needed to be. Grounded playthrough can wait for a few months as I need a break from the game for a little while So yeah, all in all this was an epic experience and I can't wait for Factions mode to be released as well as Part III if we do get one.

  14. #398 - Jisei: The First Case HD #399 - A Winter's Daydream
  15. #397 - Castle Pals This was a somewhat fun but rather forgettable retro style platformer. I liked the graphics and I liked that the two playable characters feel very different with unique abilities which added some welcome variety. Having said that, there isn't enough here to set it apart from other retro style platform games I've played that have been released recently. Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 2/10
