  1. Do you have any tips for that absolutely dreadful toothbrush minigame which unlocks the Doppelganger trophy @themindisacity? The meter seems to go up and down at random. I've tried matching Cletus' movement/pace and I still can't get the meter to fill up
  2. #300 ****Milestone Platinum**** This was a preplanned milestone and since my #200 and #250 milestones were Sony Triple-A's (The Last of Us Remastered & Uncharted: The Lost Legacy), the big three double zero wasn't going to be any different. This is a game I had been following the progress of for a long time pre-release and was very high on my wish list. For me, it didn't disappoint. I absolutely loved the hell out of this game. I won't go into any plot specifics here but I will say that I enjoyed the game's story and characters for the most (Except for Skizzo because fuck that guy). Boozer was a highlight for me and obviously Deacon himself too. I liked Rikki too. One of the things I enjoyed about the game the most was the reality of having to refuel Deacon's bike and occasionally repair it if it gets too damaged. That added to the immersion for me. Hordes were tons of fun to take of and I enjoyed the element of planning my attacks on them. Ambush Camps and Marauder Camps were enjoyable to deal with as well. Whilst progressing through the game, I recommend dealing with Ambush Camps as you discover them since they all contain bunkers with maps and viewing these maps marks the locations of Nero Sites/Checkpoints, Infestations and Historical Landmark collectibles from the surrounding area on your in-game map. The same goes for post-story trophy cleanup if you have any of them left over. I recommend dealing with Nero Sites/Checkpoints as you go too if possible since these reward you with injectors for giving you permanent upgrades to your health, stamina and focus (vital when clearing out Hordes later in the game). Needless to say Hordes should be the last thing you take care of post-game. You'll want most of Deacon's abilities maxed out at that point. The bad stuff - Even as of the the 1.31 patch, the game has quite a few weird bugs and glitches. None of them were game-breaking but they were often distracting. I also didn't like the fact Deacon can't swim. This actually mirrors my own inability to swim (the shame ) but for an open world survival game like this I find it really bizarre. It's a strange design choice. Having said all that, I highly recommend this game. I had tons of fun with it and if you like open world games then I'm sure this will be your cup of tea Enjoyment: 10/10 Difficulty: 5/10
  3. From personal experience:- Alteric (still don't have the platinum) Spiral Splatter (requires a lot of finesse) Bridge Constructor (finicky controls and frequent crashes necessitating restarting the level I was in the middle of ) InkSplosion (slightly luck based due to the crap weapons the game occasionally gives you) Orc Slayer (later levels were both tough and annoying plus those orcs that use magic attacks on you from miles away that sap tons of your health away were beyond annoying.) Others mentioned 36 Fragments of Midnight and Sound Shapes but I didn't have problems with these personally. They just needed a bit of patience. Anybody's experience can differ I guess.
  4. It looks like a fairly standard Artifex Mundi trophy list. The usual hidden object related ones plus once again you don't need to complete the game on Expert difficulty either. Any other thoughts on the trophies?
  5. Again, I haven't posted in here for a little while but since I'm on the cusp of reaching my #300 milestone, here's a recap of my last few platinums. #296 Hidden Agenda I had a lot of fun with this. It's like a cross between Heavy Rain and Until Dawn (coincidentally made by the same developers of this game Supermassive) which utilises the PlayLInk system for playing the game and no controllers are required. There's a story mode in which you play through on your own and a competitive mode where up to six people can play (although each player must have their own Android or IOS compatible device). 1 playthrough of each is required for the platinum. My wife helped me with the competitive playthrough and we had a lot of fun playing the game. The story kept us guessing all the way to the end too. Enjoyment: 10/10 Difficulty: 3/10 #297 Storm Boy A very simple game to platinum but within it is a very charming yet heartbreaking children's story (one I was already familiar with having read the book it's based on as a child). Lots of feels at the end. It's very sad. Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 1/10 #298 Bird Game + So this is an on-rails type experience in which you (unsurprisingly) play as a bird and have to make it to the end of each level whilst avoiding numerous obstacles. It's drawn in a very charming minimalist black and white manner and it really is quite pretty to look at. Any fun I had with the game itself however was offset by clunky controls and at times it felt like I had very little control over the bird. Average to good but would have been better with more finessed controls. Enjoyment: 4/10 Difficulty: 3/10 #299 Sagebrush I really enjoyed this a hell of a lot. It's a first person walking simulator style game in which the game's character explores the compound of a millennialist style religious cult in New Mexico years after they all took their own lives in a mass suicide style event. The game's story (definitely my cup of tea) is told though exploration of the compound and through audio tapes that are scattered around the area which explain the cult's plans and what they believed in. It's short but sweet. I loved it. Enjoyment: 10/10 Difficulty: 2/10
  6. The Last of Us and Metal Gear Solid 3. Both masterpieces.
  7. Just finished watching Formula One: Drive To Survive on Netflix. Really good docu-series and full of drama. Stranger Things and The Boys are next on my watch list along with the second half of Fear The Walking Dead Season 5 when it returns from mid-season break.
  8. The Last Guardian and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood.
  9. #288 Chaos on Deponia I thought this was an excellent follow up to the first Deponia game and leaves me looking forward to playing the other two in the series when I see a good deal on them. It's a fine example of a classic Point & Click game with a wicked sense of humour and several amusing moments. I recommend it highly. Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 3/10 #289 Black Mirror Eh. This was okay. The story was interesting and there were some suitably creepy characters lurking in the creepy mansion the game takes place in. The mechanics are sadly what let this down including an almost unmovable camera that doesn't budge very far, borderline tank controls and slow walking speed for the main character who occasionally also gets stuck on bits of scenery and objects if you walk too close to them. It looked and felt like playing a PS3 game. Would recommend if you fancy a spooky tale but don't expect a great game. Enjoyment: 5/10 Difficulty: 3/10 #290 Conan Exiles I'm not going to lie, if it wasn't free on PS+ and didn't have a debug mode I would never have touched this game. From what I saw during my limited play time, it appears to be extremely unpolished and dull to play. The PS4 version utilises the same UI as the PC version which makes inventory management an absolute nightmare using a Dual Shock 4 and it grated very quickly. Was happy to be done with this. Enjoyment: N/A Difficulty: N/A #291 The Raven Remastered I missed this game when it was on PS3 and decided to give the remaster a go on PS4. I enjoyed it very much although Chapter 1 was a bit of a slog as you're contained to moving between three small train carriages for the most part. Things get a lot more interesting as soon as the action switches to the cruise ship shortly afterwards. The gameplay was solid and the cast of characters are varied. The story was enjoyable as well and kept me guessing until the end. Some more spoilery thoughts below. Enjoyment: 9/10 Difficulty: 3/10
  10. This could have been a sub-10% rarity platinum if they'd made the survival trophy a part of the main list. I'm not a fan of these difficulty related trophies being added after the game has launched.
  11. The trophies look pretty simple for an Everybody's Golf title. I'm playing through the Vita version at the moment and having fun with it. This game makes me wish I owned a PlayStation VR.
  12. Hitman Journey Firewatch Resident Evil 4 Touch My Katamari The Walking Dead: Season 2 Uncharted: Fight For Fortune
  13. You should be fine. I had no problem doing it with chapter select personally. I missed the final two shiv doors during my original run through the game on Easy and I missed the one in the Firefly Lab for a second time on Grounded cos I didn't have enough parts to craft a shiv. Went back and opened that one via chapter select afterwards and it popped with no trouble.
  14. #283 Kingmaker: Rise to the Throne Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 3/10 #284 Queen's Quest 2: Stories of Forgotten Past Enjoyment: 5/10 Difficulty: 5/10 #285 Modern Tales: Age of Invention Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 2/10 Back up to date with a complete collection of Artifex Mundi platinums thanks to these three. I enjoyed them as I always do. I enjoyed Modern Tales and Kingmaker in particular. They were the best of the three. Queen's Quest 2 felt a little bit off to me for reasons I can't quite put my finger on. #286 Nubla 2 Enjoyment: 5/10 Difficulty: 2/10 This wasn't as glitchy as I expected it to be and the 1.05 patch appears to have fixed all of the bugs as I didn't experience any crashes. I thought it was better than the first game and it clocks in at a meatier 2 hours compared to 30-40 minutes for the original. Having said that, the pacing of the game is poor and Chapter 3 is a massive slog with lots of tedious backtracking back and forth, fetching and carrying etc. Chapter 3 actually clocks in longer than Chapter 0, 1, 2 and 4 combined just to give you an idea. #287 The Mooseman Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 3/10 This was pretty decent. I loved the beautiful artwork and I thought the soundtrack was great. The gameplay was a bit too simplistic in places but overall my experience with the game was a good one. The environments are superb and do need to be seen to be believed. Added in to that are the gameplay mechanics which allow you to shift in and out of different environments thus revealing additional layers to the levels as you guide the protagonist (the shaman of a tribe) towards the game's ending. Recommended.
