  1. I don't think effort is the problem here. I finished Persona 1 on PSP before, which also required thought and effort to understand how it works and what to look out for. Otherwise even random encounters will kill you. It's really just the timelimit in Rorona that gave me no room for grinding, leveling and retrying bosses multiple times with different strategies. Can you explain how in particular the skill system in Zestiria may be difficult to get into? Oh, I didn't add that one to my list, because it's Vita only. The upcoming remaster of the first Conception will be for PS4 too.
  2. If you are refering to the wiki page: Yeah, that entry seems a bit confusing. At first it makes it seem like it describes hentai games, then it says it describes VNs, along half way through the page it shows a loli pic as an example and in the end it also lists rail shooters like Gal Gun and other types of games as bishoujo games. The majority of the JRPGs on my list aren't real bishoujo games if they don't have some kind of affection system where you can get a girl-related ending or a side-story line or something similar. That's just me pushing the boundries a bit, because these often also feature the aesthetics I adore so much in bishoujo games. It's true that a few dozens of years ago the very first bishoujo games were hentai VNs, but nowadays not many people would think that VNs are always hentai games. And like this, there are also a lot of bishoujo games, that are not adult games. Bishoujo games in erotic nature are rather called "eroge" from what I've seen. The term "bishoujo" is pretty much the opposite of "bishonen" and no one would associate that with little boys. I have no idea where the whole "underaged girls" thing comes from, but my guess is that it's because games in anime style usually feature girls around high school age and there are some controversies when it comes to fanservicey depictions in the west every now and then. I checked your recommendations, the first one seems pretty interesting. Am I right that it is a kind of horror point and click adventure in anime style? I especially like how the trophy icons together form bigger pictures of the characters And I already know about Black Clover and was planning to get sooner or later, as I also really like shounen 3D fighting games. Oh, thanks for the additional infos, really appreciate that! I noted Vesperia Remastered in my "look out for" list One question, as you seem to know a lot about the Tales of series: How is the story connected? I know that it's a multimedia franchise, having other stuff like manga, audiobooks and more alongside the actual games. Will I be able to follow everything if I only play the games in order of their release? Btw. Graces is not on the list, because I simply overlooked it when I looked up a list of "Tales of" games Just checked it and it seems to be not easy, but doable. I will add it to the "maybe" section, because I think I should first get some more experience with classic jrpgs before I attempt games around difficulty 5-7/10. Actually anime 3D fighters got me into gaming back then, like the Dragonball Z Budokai Tenkaichi games or the Naruto Ultimate Ninja games. And I only played games like that during my school years, so aside from playing hundreds of hours of Pokemon, I had no experience with JRPGs until the recent years. I think the Digimon Adventure psp game was my first more classic turn based jrpg. It got pretty challenging midway, but I pushed through by re-adjusting my startegies and skills. And after trying out a lot of different strats and attempting many many times, I even managed to beat the hardest endgame boss by myself. After that came Digimon Cybersleuth, which felt just the right difficulty if you're not playing on easy. I failed a boss battle every now and then, but always managed to beat them after changing my team and/or doing some leveling. To my surprise I also managed to beat the strongest challenge in the game first try, although was a bit of a fluke as I had just the right ability in my team to counter the boss, who did like 8 strong attacks in a row and usually wipes out everything on max level every time it was his turn. Aside from those, I played things like Sword Art Online, Blue Reflection, the first Neptunia games and Xenoblade Chronicles X on Wii U, but all those didn't feel hard at all. The first SAO one was incredibly grindy and Xenoblade had some challenging additional bosses, but nothing that can't be beaten when you look up a good endgame set and copy that. So based on that, I thought I can handle a JRPG with ingame time limits and average difficulty and started Atelier Rorona Plus, but you heard how that went. So now, I'm a bit more careful with difficulty in jrpgs. But I think if a game has no ingame time limits and I can just take my time to grind levels or get better gear and then attempt it again, that already lowers the difficulty by a lot. I think what's most important for me in JRPGs is freedom, like that I can choose where to go and explore dungeons and maps however I like. And also I usually like to play the first playthrough blind in order to not get spoilers through guides or hidden trophies and I really don't like if you can get stuck with that, like standing before a boss, not being able to beat it due to having the wrong gear or having skilled in the wrong stats and there's no way to go back and prepare before retrying.
  3. Finally finished checking out all your suggestions. I watched trailers and gameplay, went through different sites about trophy difficulty, checked prices and availability and more. Sadly there were quite a few interesting games I can't play due to them being exclusively released on Vita. But most of them were fine. Definitely wanna play in the future: Gal Gun 2 (already own his one) Senran Kagura: Estival Versus Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization (already have this too) Accel World VS Sword Art Online Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet Persona 4 Golden Persona 5 Punch Line Akiba's Trip Undead & Undressed Onechanbara Z2: Chaos Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 (I'm waiting for the import price to drop a bit more) Tales of Xillia Tales of Xillia 2 Tales of Berseria Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward (never heard of those zero escape games before, they look really interesting!) Zero Escape: The Nonary Games Megadimension Neptunia VII Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online Fairy Fencer F Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star Girls und Panzer: Dream Tank Match (not much info about difficulty, but the trophies look like it just requires normal playing and some collecting/grinding) The Awakened Fate Ultimatum Steins;Gate Steins;Gate 0 (these VNs were on my plan-to-play list anyways, I really liked the anime and I also played Robotics;Notes by the same studio, that also had some interactive elements) Valkyria Revolution Valkyria Chronicles 4 Dream Club (this one looks like it gives out its 100% trophies for free xD) Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Maybe: BlazBlue: Cross Tag battle (I usually suck at 2D fighters, like I had many issues with the score trophy of Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, but this trophy list looks pretty easy) Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle (There are mixed opinions about the plat, especially people having issues with the controls in general) Bullet Girls Phantasia (not much info out there about difficulty, because not many people played this) School Girl/Zombie Hunter (trophies seem challenging, like clearing all missions with a SSS rank on all difficulties, it looks like something I would enjoy tho, I may play this on my second account) Croixleur Sigma (Mixed opinions about difficulty, most people tend to lean towards it being hard, may play this on my side account too) Atelier Dusk Trilogy (Since the trouble I had with the Arland trilogy, I'm not sure about these. I heard they got easier with less harsh timelimits, so they may be worth another try) Atelier Mysterious Trilogy (see above) Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone (Most people say it's easy, but rythm games look pretty intimidating to me. I failed to clear the more difficult songs on the K-On game and I usually only beat beatmaps up to normal difficulty on OSU. May try on another acount first to see if I'm decent enough for the game) Nights of Azure (Mixed difficulty opinions, but very pretty looking game!) Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel (This one seems doable, even for a 2D fighter noob like me) Tales of Zestiria (mixed difficulty opinions and seems dependend on RNG, but I guess if I can beat Xillia 2, I can do this one too) Shining Resonance Refrain (couldn't find much info regarding diffculty, but the trophies by description don't look that hard) Trails of Cold Steel (It seems to be a RPG on the more difficult side with a bunch of missables, but I also read that some DLCs can make the bossfights easier) Mary Skelter 2 (couldn't really find infos about this one. Am I right that the first game is Vita only and the second game for PS4 includes the first one, but there are only trophies regarding the second one?) Death End Re;quest (comes to west in 2019, will wait until then) Varnir of the Witch (Same with this one, will wait till it gets released in west 2019) Ar tonelico Qoga (average difficulty, requires a lot of planning regarding saves) Akiba's Beat (trophies seem not that hard, but the plat rate is pretty low for some reason) Valkyria Chronicles Remastered (difficulty seems okay-ish with some hard parts, but there are guides for those) Touhou Genso Rondo: Bullet Ballet (I have a lot of respect for the difficulty of bullet hell games and I'm not sure if this is for me, even with seemingly not too hard trophies) Touhou Genso Wanderer (Same as above + I hardly found any infos about the difficulty of this one) Little Witch Academia (I found not enough info regarding difficulty, but I really liked the anime!) Trinity Universe (difficulty seems challenging, but not too hard, but the trophies themselves seem to be no fun. It's almost all pure grinding stuff) Conception Plus (Remaster of the first Conception game, will come out next year) Phantom Breaker extra (not many infos about difficulty, I'm extra careful about 2D fighters since the issues I had with Fighting Climax) Most likely too hard for me: Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X (Very hard and skill-dependent platinum. But the game looks fun. If I liked Project Diva Future Tone, I may play this on my second acc) Caladrius Blaze Guided Fate Paradox Omega Quintet Arcana Heart (very hard plat for someone, who's not an experienced 2D fighter player) Record Of Agarest War Skullgirls (very mixed opinions about difficulty, but it being a 2D fighter will probably make it pretty challenging for me) Skullgirls 2nd Encore (one of the hardest 2D fighter plats out there) Not bishoujo games, but I wanna play those too: God Eater 3 (since I loved GE1 & GE2, this one is a given, already preordered) Danganrona 1-2 Reload (already 100% the first one on PSP, so I know that I will love it) Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony Life is Strange (I have my eyes on this since a while now) Bayonetta (I watched some trailers/gameplay and it reminds me a lot of devil may cry. I have to agree with the soundtrack, it sounds really amazing. I wanna play this on my second account, so I don't have to worry about trophies) Nier (I may skip this one as I read that this one is not as good as Automata + more than half of the process towards platinum is very boring material grind) Nier Automata The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia Gravity Rush Gravity Rush 2 Thanks again for all the lists and recommendations! There were a lot of niche games I didn't know about and I think all these games will keep me busy for a long time
  4. It's mostly because almost everything you do consumes time and you need to at certain places at certain times in order not to miss events + you need to fulfill requests by certain dates. At the same time, you need to get certain items and recipes in order to be powerful enough to beat enemies. And also, you need to clear enough character requests and villager requests in order to get enough popularity and affinity. Especially the Rorona game was very strict with the limits, you couldn't even properly explore an area and had to rush through. From what I saw, there are only step-by.step guides for a few Atelier games, for example for Rorona Plus there are none. And it's not easy to make one, because the items you find are RNG and everyone will end up with different material. Every playthrough, you will end up in slightly different situations. So you have to plan ahead a lot and there are tiny things you only notice later, that can mess up your playthrough. I tried following a guide, that told you roughly what to focus on in which chapter, but I usually ended up not being able to clear everything on the checklist by the end of each chapter. Also, even with a step by step youtube video I wasn't able to make the same gear and items, because I had slightly different RNG stats on my stuff and after combining everything, these differences affected the outcome too much. A friend had to help me with two of the bosses by replaying the last year of the main story and even now, I'm still missing the overtime boss trophies because crafting endgame gear gives me headaches. I really liked the visual designs, the slice of life stories and how simple and straight forward the battles were, but the time limits really stressed me out. Without the limits and less RNG, I would agree, that everyone could just follow a guide to create stuff that's good enough to beat the bosses. I haven't played the other sagas, but I heard there are some with very lax or even no time limits at all. Maybe those would be worth a try. @ all Thanks a lot in advance for all the mentioned titles, will check them all later when I'm home.
  5. Oh, thanks for these, they really look like fun Seems like they are also pretty fanservicey, are the PS4 ones uncensored? Thanks! I almost forgot that all the danganronpa games got released on PS4. I already played the first one on PSP and I liked it alot. 100% it even without there being trophies. these should be fun! Don't worry about danganronpa counting or not, I even mentioned God Eater in my original post, although it also isn't really a bishoujo game. Never heard of Onechanbara, but at the first glance it seems like what I look for. Noted. Already played Blue Reflection, it really was pretty! The atelier games have the same character and artwork designer, but I'm a bit hesistant since the issues I had with the Arland saga on PS3. For example Rorona Plus has a platinum trophy difficulty rating of around 7/10 to 9/10. Any particular saga with easier plats you would recommend? How skill-based are the Vocaloid rythm games? I'm a bit scared of those, same like with the bullet hell touhou games I got recommended somewhere else. The difficulty rating on the trophy sites I checked don't seem too bad, but when watching gameplay of them, they look pretty challenging for someone, who never played games like these before. Bishoujo means "pretty girl" and it describes games, that have a lot of pretty girls, usually in anime style, and it often revolves around interacting with them. It has nothing to do with the shojo genre, aimed at girls. For example almost all visual novels aimed at males are bishoujo games. But I think something like the Idolmaster Rythm games, RPGs like the Neptunia series or even something like Dead or Alive can be considered bishoujo games aswell.
  6. I'm searching for pretty looking bishoujo games for preferably PS4 (but PS3 is okay too), that are not too hard to plat. To avoid everyone posting VNs, please only mention games, that have at least some form of gameplay. A few examples are RPGs, like the neptunia games or blue reflection, action games like god eater or the gal gun rail shooters. But I don't mind the genre, it could also be a strategy game, a fighter or pretty much anything. VNs, that also feature a handful of minigames are fine, too. It's just important, that the plat is not too hard. Like, some of the Atelier games are pretty harsh with their time limits and their bosses. I don't mind games that take 100+ hours to finish, tho. Anyone got some nice recommendations for me?
  7. Anyone knows if there will be some kind of "workshop" where you can download and play other peoples creations or share your own one? I like the idea of making an own game, but I want others to play it and I want to try out other creations too.
  8. I really want to change my name to something more mature and neutral, but I'm really scared by all those scary things that could happen. I will definitely wait until they are lists which games will work and which games will have issues. Also, maybe they will come up with updates in the future, which will fix more stuff and make the ID change more reliable.
  9. Thanks for sharing, but I'm not sure how to read that shedule. Does it say anything about combat only? I just remembered that there will be DLC and I got the Collectors Edition with the season pass. I decided to take it slow and do around 30-40 matches every time a new character comes out. That way it will feel less painful and I can unlock and test out the new skills. Congratz to the upcoming platinum I never touched ninja league, as I'm not very skilled and the few times I tried there, everyone went super tryhard and I stood no chance at all There are scary people like this:
  10. Yep, I'm on the same page now. Completed flag battles too and am waiting for combat now, which I expect in around 10-14 days. I also bought everything in the shop already and I'm getting that useless money I assume after getting my last 74 combat wins with ranged type, I should have around 600 battles altogether. Grinding those last 400 battles without any goals and without even having to win, will be so boring >.<
  11. I have a theory about how the battle mode rotation works for quickmatches, because I think I'm noticing a pattern. We started with combat battle and base battle. Then we had base battle only. Now we have base battle and flag battle. I'm predicting the following modes for the upcoming weeks: Flag battle only, flag battle and barrier battle, barrier battle only, barrier battle and combat battle, combat battle only, and repeat from where we started.
  12. Haha, yeah, I warned you Health, and sometimes damage too, scale with the amount of people. Also, in some missions where will be way more adds/clones when doing it co-op. So, some missions are best doing with others while other missions are best doing solo. Took me multiple days and many tries to clear all missions and after that, the first thing I did was backing up my save, because no way I'm gonna do this ever again I uploaded some of the hardest missions on youtube, maybe it will help some people. But remember that I'm not a pro player, I get hit and die a lot And for Ultimate Showdown S Rank, I could only record half of the mission, because that one takes nearly half a hour and PS4 can only record 15 minutes, but I ran with a really chill streamer from youtube, who recorded his run before, and we had a similar run (me, him + two randoms, 10+ minutes on the timer at the start of shukaku, 9+ minutes timer at the start of susanoo), so I'll instead share his initial recording of it (mission starts at 5:17 and ends at 29:30):
  13. I'm at around 80 base wins, 5 flag wins and 20 combat wins and I will continue to do quick matches until I got 100 base wins and hopefully around 20 flag wins aswell by that time. Then I will take a break from the game and wait until either only flag battles, only combat battles or both are available at quickmatch. I don't want to burn myself out too soon.
  14. No, you stay jonin. The game doesn't give you anything or congratulates you. You just get the trophy and that's it.
  15. They finally made flag battle available in quick match, but they removed combat battles. If you already got the 100 combat wins, the platin is achievable for you now It seems like they change quickmatch and ninja league battle modes each week, together with the weekly events.
