  1. #491 - Takotan A fun shoot-em-up game that reminded me of 16-bit SNES games of the past. Loved the pixel art and the soundtrack. Enjoyment: 9/10 Difficulty: 2/10
  2. #489 - Skyland: Heart of the Mountain Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 2/10 #490 - Family Mysteries 3: Criminal Mindset Enjoyment: 9/10 Difficulty: 2/10 Two more Artifex Mundi platinums for my collection and I have a full set of them once again. Family Mysteries 3 was definitely my favourite of the two and I've enjoyed that series of games so far. I hope they have more of them planned.
  3. #478 & #479 - Himno (Vita & PS4) This was a really nice, calm and relaxing platformer game that sees the player navigate vertical levels to make further into different districts of the game with wisps that light the way in the darkness. That's about as far as it goes really and how much a player gets out of it depends on how long it keeps them interested as it can be limited. A bit of a story and maybe some additional gameplay elements wouldn't have gone amiss. PS4 was a lot easier as I was able to crank up the brightness on my TV whilst the brightest setting on my Vita didn't quite cut it. Enjoyment: 9/10 Difficulty: 2/10
  4. #476 & #477 - Football Game (Vita & PS4) This was an atmospheric pixilated point & click game that reminded a lot of The Long Reach, Home, and Claire (all of which I enjoyed) but without the horror elements. This one's more of a thriller. It's pretty short but it held my attention. Quite an enjoyable little story that kept me guessing til the end. Enjoyment: 9/10 Difficulty: 1.5/10
  5. #474 & #475 - Foxyland 2 (Vita & PS4) I thought this was a big step up from the original game. The graphics were improved and there is also co-op available this time around. A step up in difficulty for this one too with Foxy now dying in one hit rather than the 3 hits you get in the original. Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 2/10
  6. #472 & #473 - Foxyland (PS4 & Vita) Not a bad little game at all, regardless of the trophy list's simplicity. Very SNES-riffic platformer both in it's look and feel. Moving onto Foxyland 2 next. Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 2/10
  7. Latest 100% - Monopoly Family Fun Pack I had fun with this. I've always been a fan of the board game and I remember really enjoying getting the platinum for Monopoly Streets on PS3 some years back. Monopoly Plus plays very similarly to that game with a vivid 3D animated board which makes it appealing in video game form. Monopoly Deal was new to me and I found it surprisingly addictive. It isn't as good as playing a normal game of Monopoly but at the same time I thought it was a good way of turning it into a card based game. A few of the trophies can take some time to get but most can be done in one run through Monopoly Plus and two runs through Monopoly Deal. The toughest trophy in the game is Final No which requires a bit of luck but I was fortunate enough to unlock it at my second attempt.
  8. #471 - Mine My Mind I was enjoying this Minesweeper type game up until the larger 30x20 puzzles which gave me a headache. Complicating matters is the fact every puzzle must be done perfectly with no errors which resulted in me having to redo several of the later puzzles that I thought I'd already perfected but was often 1 square out. I think my favourite part of the game was actually reading the witty but long winded trophy descriptions I'm not deleting it just yet as I have a feeling more DLC trophies will be added. Enjoyment: 6/10 Difficulty: 3/10 Time to Platinum: 5 hours
  9. #466 - Far Cry 4 15,000th trophy milestone I absolutely loved this game and I adore this entire franchise for that matter. I'd heard before playing of how Far Cry 4 is too similar to Far Cry 3 and that Pagan Min is a poor man's Vaas Montenegro but in my opinion this game stands on it's own two feet alongside the the third game. I liked them both equally. Pagan Min (played by voice acting chameleon Troy Baker) was a memorable villain right from his opening monologue where he greets main character Ajay Ghale who has returned to Kyrat to scatter his mother's ashes. My only complaint was that we don't see anywhere near enough of him and he gets even less screen time than Vaas did in Far Cry 3. Other focal points of the story character-wise are Amita and Sabal who are competing for control of The Golden Path, a rebel faction seeking to rid Kyrat of Pagan Min and his Royal Army. The younger Amita favours revolution whereas the more traditional valued Sabal wants to return Kyrat to it's old ways before the reign of King Min. Naturally you are forced to side with one or the other as the difference in their respective approach are drastic. As far as gameplay goes, it's typical Far Cry/Ubisoft fare with a massive and varied open world to explore, outposts to liberate, side quests to complete and collectibles to grab. I loved the setting of the game and it felt very detailed. Unlike most open world games, the location actually felt lived-in and Kyrat looked like it was crumbling in places which is what you'd expect from an isolated nation living under a dictatorship. I will be moving onto Far Cry 5 at some point but I'm saving that for my 500th platinum milestone so it won't be for a little while yet 🙂 Enjoyment - 10/10 Difficulty - 5/10 Time to platinum - 30 hours Valley of the Yetis DLC 100% - 5 hours
  10. #465 - Gravel This was a solid and mostly pretty enjoyable off-road rally type game from racing game specialists Milestone who have worked on the MotoGP, WRC and Ride series of games in the past amongst others. You compete in a series of events chained together by an extremely feather light story where you compete in a TV show called Off-Road Masters against a group of fictional "masters" and these drivers essentially serve as bosses you race against in individual head-to-head events as you progress. Stars are awarded for fulfilling specific criteria in the races and those stars then open up the later events etc. Fairly basic stuff. Checkpoint races were fun and definitely the pick of the events. I really enjoyed the Namibia events too which boasted some really spectacular scenery. I wouldn't have minded more of those. I wasn't a fan of the Smash Up races however and I can't really put into words how annoying those were. I also didn't like the grind to player Level 99 either which is required for obtaining all of the game's liveries and to unlock what for most people will be the game's final trophy along with the platinum. I was at Level 58 after unlocking all the other trophies which left me having to repeat a lot of events I'd already completed. If you've played a Milestone game in the past then you'll have a good idea of what to expect - a solid racing game but nothing mind blowing. Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 3/10
  11. #464 - The Walking Dead: The Final Season A fitting send off for the Telltale series of TWD games and I thought this was the best season since the first one. It starts off kinda slow but really picks up the pace around halfway through the third episode. Clem is honestly one of my Top 20 favourite video game characters and I say that not only as a video game fan in general but a fan of both TWD universes - comic book and TV show. The only downfall for me was the frame rate drops and performance issues in some of the more hectic action scenes which resulted in a few unnecessary retries of certain sequences. Nonetheless however, I really enjoyed it overall. Enjoyment: 9/10 Difficulty: 2/10
  12. #463 - Demon Hunter: Revelation Another Artifex Mundi game in the books and I'm back to having a complete set of their platinum trophies again. Another enjoyable one with the usual mix of HOP's, minigames and very nicely drawn scenes. Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 2/10
  13. So I completely forgot about this thread and these trophies but I've got them now as there was a weekly race this week and a featured event last week. Worth noting that you don't actually have to finish the race to get Weekend Warrior and The Whole Event to pop. I got wiped out by one of the other user controlled cars on the 4th lap but I spectated until the end as I planned to have another go at it in the next race at the start of the next hour and both trophies popped at the end. I'm not sure if spectating the race rather than quitting afterwards had anything to do with it but that might be the case.
  14. #460 - Roundout by POWGI Quite a fun crossword game from the masters of newspaper puzzle page type games POWGI. The twist with this one is that the words all contain a predetermined list of 8 letters. Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 1/10 #461 - Dark Sauce Block style platformer with attractively colorful visuals. Entertaining for the brief hour or so it lasts for. I liked it. Enjoyment: 7/10 Difficulty: 2/10
  15. I finished both seasons of Mayans MC. Really good stuff and it gets better as it goes along. Eagerly awaiting the third season now. Also just finished the third season of Drive To Survive which is a Netflix original that takes a look at the inner workings of Formula One, it's drivers and other personalities. This was a letdown for me and it wasn't as good as the first two seasons.
