  1. Plat No. 43 - Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age

    Final Fantasy XII was one of the only two main numbered I never finished back when I first got it (excluding XI and XIV). I suppose I was too young to care about the more politically focused story and I struggled with the difficulty because I never used the Gambits well. Now, about a decade later, I finally saw it through to completion in the Zodiac Age. While not my absolute favorite in the series, it definitely ranks pretty high on my list. Now all that remains is FFVIII which I never finished due to the final battle being absolutely HEINOUS.

      Nice work! VIII was one I never beat, back in the day. I knocked both it and IX out on the PS3, though. Using walkthroughs, of course. :ninja:

      Congratz! :yay:

  2. Rewatching the Resident Evil movies. I hope I'm not the only one who prefers the films to the games. Also saw Big Fish and Begonia last night. It was very interesting. I could see it being an actual Chinese legend.
  3. Review - Song of Memories

    Just finished my first playthrough, going down Kanon's Route (technically it was my second playthough because I took the neutral route first but the game ends very prematurely that way). I'm not overly familiar with Visual Novel games as the only ones I've played are the Danganronpa games, Doki Doki Literature Club, and a short one about a demon girl in a circle that I can't remember the name of. At first, the way the character stills were animated was very jarring, but I got used to it pretty quick. The story is really great, being one of those cutesy love stories, but as the game description will tell you, bad things are happening in the background. I really like that the choices you make during the game greatly influence how the story plays out. Sometimes one choice will completely flip the script, changing everything that happens. I love how much weight it puts into those choices. But not to worry if you want to change your choices. There's a Chart that details the events that have happened and even gives subtle hints toward pursuing certain routes. You can jump back to any point you already passed at any time. I enjoyed the characters and the music is really good. The musical battles were interesting but weren't incredibly in depth, occasionally becoming a bit tedious in later fights. You can choose to skip them altogether, though you will miss out on some of the dialogue and some great songs. Aside from that, there were only a few problems I had with the game. One: it was a bit too fanservicey in places. Then there were a few typos, though it may have just been a glitch from the PC port because sometimes playing through a scene again would fix the typo. However, one time the audio clearly said one name when the text showed another, and the name Mika gets switched to Maki halfway through (not sure if that was intentional as a nickname or a typo as well). But these gripes don't detract from the experience to me. I'm interested in seeing what the other routes and choices have in store. The way Kanon's story played out makes me think that the other routes probably have vastly different stories. I've still got a lot of ground to cover if I want to experience everything. Oh, and btw, the trophy images line up to make a picture. That was literally what initially drew me to this game lol.

      If you read through this entire text wall, thanks. I just thought this game was awesome and wanted to gush about it. I always love a good story that pushes me to the verge of tears and this one had me tearing up more than once.

  4. Started the new Critical Mode in KH3. Dying a lot already, but enjoying myself immensely. The ability to turn off situation commands is really cool as well. Really helps make the game feel like one of the older games.

  5. Went to MTAC on Friday and bought a mystery bag of Japanese video games. Not the best idea I've ever had. Wound up with a bunch of games I either didn't want to play, or games I want to play but didn't have a system for. So I want to sell them but have no idea what to price them.

    Here's what I got:

     

    デニス (Tennis) on Famicom

    シャイニング スコーピオン (Shining Scorpion) on Super Famicom

    熱血高校サーカー部 (Nekketsu Highschool Soccer Club) on Gamboy

    怪人ゾナー (Phantom Zone) on Gameboy Color

    Virtual On: Cyber Troopers on Sega Saturn

    ハイパー オリンピック イン ナガノ (Hyper Olympics in Nagano) on PlayStation

    Phantasy Star Portable on PSP

    God Eater on PSP

    Tales of Vesperia on XBox 360

     

    Take note that they are all the Japanese versions. Any help would be great pricinv these.

  6. Plat No. 41 - Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon

    That makes the entire Reignited Trilogy 100% complete. Even got all the Skill Points for completion's sake. Out of the original three, the third was the only one that I never got 100% back on the PS1. I encountered a glitch that prevented me from getting an egg after the race in the second world. So I'm glad to have been able to amend that.

  7. Plat No. 40 - Final Fantasy X HD Remaster

    When I realized another trophy milestone was coming up, I thought to myself, "Hmm, I really want to get a good 40th platinum. I want to go for a plat I wanted to achieve for a long time." So I went for Final Fantasy X. It took a lot longer to get this than I anticipated. I actually went for the plat once in 2014 on my PS3. However, during a mishap where my profile on the system got deleted, I lost all the save files on the PS3. I was about halfway through the Sphere Grid with three characters. Seeing as all that time was lost, I wasn't very anxious to give it another shot. Since it had been a few years and because I love FFX so much, I restarted... but the disc started failing on me... So I got the PS4 version, transferred the data, and spent about a month and a half grinding out the damn Sphere Grid. With it all behind me, I now have a very nice shiny new platinum. One that I've been wanting a long time.

  8. Hate that Chocobo Catcher minigame. But had to do it for the Sun Sigil. At least it only took me like an hour to get a good run instead of two weeks like the last time I went for it.

      congrats. think i lost my mind trying to get the perfect time. hour and a half for myself.

  9. Playing throigh FFX again, hoping to clean up those trophies I missed when my saves were lost. Even though I've played through this game several times, I feel like I'm seeing a lot of stuff I've never seen before in this playthrough. FFX and X-2 are my pretty much my favorites of the series

      FFX for the win! that's my favorite too :awesome:

      I hope you enjoy it! That was one I went back to as well. It was so satisfying to beat the chocobo race with a time under 0.00 (something I never did on the PS2). Good luck!

  10. For DLC, I think it would be cool to have something like the Mirage Arena or at least access to the Colosseum where you could fight some bosses that actually pose a challenge
  11. Plat No. 39 - Kingdom Hearts 3

    This game was a great way to end off the Xehanort Saga. Having been with the series from the very beginning, I was really hoping for a good end to where the series has been leading up to this point. Glad to say I was satisfied. Only problems I had with the game were the difficulty was really easy compared to the others but it's honestly a minor gripe. I was also a little disappointed to find that none of the Final Fantasy characters made it into the game. I was so looking forward to one last clash with Sephiroth or maybe Gilgamesh as a change of pace. Regardless, KH3 was a hit for me and I can't wait to see where the series goes from here. The setup so far looks very interesting

  12. Currently working on Spyro 2 and 3 Then KH3 will be out and I'm gonna try to get the most I can out of that so a plat will probably happen on accident
  13. Plat No. 37 Spyro the Dragon

    Was awesome coming back to this game after so long. Even though I hadn't played the original in years, I still remembered where almost everything was. In fact it is now my new fastest plat. Originally it was Ratchet and Clank 3 with 1 week and a day. Now it's Spyro with 1 day and 14 hours. Not gonna try to beat that. Moving on to Spyro 2. Probably my favorite of the original 3.

      Congrats! I will not play the game, but i must admit that trophy images for Spyro games look very nice.
