  1. I'm not sure if all that many have played the new DLC yet, but I'm having an issue with the trophies for beating the Queen unlocking. There's supposed to be dialogue before the fight but it just starts right away, without even the name of the boss popping up like all the others. Edit: Figured this out, make sure you don't have skip cutscenes on in the options. It basically breaks the fight.
  2. It seems the "Born sapper" and "Return to sender" trophies related to the Derelict Distillery are glitched at the moment. I got through the area twice without touching the Barrel Launcher and reflected many barrels back towards enemies. I didn't try picking up the Barrel Launcher but not using it, but I doubt that would work. "Me, jealous?" in Fatal Falls is also potentially glitched, but I haven't tried this one yet myself.

      Wow! Very impressive!

      I started playing Tales of Xillia and only got 7 of 46 trophies, there is just so much to do.

  4. Can I just list one game for my tier 2 (Amplitude) and use swaps for any more that I complete? I know that's not how the event was designed but also: 1. I have no idea which UR game I'm going to tackle next (if even any more this year). 2. I have 9 swaps. 3. There's no fundamental difference between me doing that or just listing 4 random games and swapping them later.

  6. Honestly there hasn't really been any new information for the game for a long time. I think most people just make mistakes that add a bunch of time, with by far the biggest one being not combining Edge's 30k kills and Faize's 3k battles. Some people also try to work on quests and item creation before getting duplication which adds a lot of unnecessary farming. My first completion of the game took me 350 hours and I was only able to cut it down to 230 hours by knowing the best order to do things.
  7. My ceiling right now is my current completion at 99.94%. So unless 505 Games decides to patch the glitched Indivisible trophies, I can only get a higher % by starting more and more games. I get annoyed by the glitched trophies at times but there's nothing I can do about it.
  8. Tier 1: 1. Star Ocean 4 (0.87%) - 100% 2. Hyper Light Drifter (2.40%) - 100% 3. Dariusburst: Chronicle Saviours (0.51%) - 100% 4. SteamWorld Dig 2 (4.05%) - 100% 5. Dead Cells (3.64%) - 100% I've completed Star Ocean 4 for the 4th time. This time it took me 260 hours. Doesn't quite live up to my 230 hours for the PS4 EU stack but 260 hours is still really fast for this game. Happy to have it done so I can play my PS5 more. Got one a couple weeks ago and haven't played it much since I was so close to getting this done. Not gonna commit to a 2nd tier right now since I haven't even thought about it at all.
  9. :platinum: #130 - For the 4th time, Star Ocean 4 is done.

  10. For the 4th time, I've obtained all 900 battle trophies in Star Ocean: The Last Hope. Took me about 245 hours to get to this point this time.

     

    Just gotta beat Universe and Chaos for the plat, which isn't too much trouble.

      Why though? :/ 

      I'll never believe you did it that quick, it's impossible. The item drops alone...

      Last year when you mentioned it my stream, I knew it bs then and I'm stilling saying it's bs

      I like the game. I know it's a stupid grind but I like collecting the battle trophies.

       

      My playtime on exophase backs up my playtime claims. I don't think you can fake that. If you know what you're doing and grind everything efficiently it can be done "quickly".

      The drops specifically take 2 hours for each of Sarah, Myuria, Lymle, and Reimi, 10 hours for Meracle and Bacchus, and then Edge and Arumat don't matter since you can combine them with their 30k kills. But even as I'm grinding Meracle and Bacchus's drops, I grind kills for Arumat so by the time I actually start his kills I'm already over 10k.

      @dertswa687o You can actually manually edit the playtime on Exophase so it's not a reliable source....but I have no reason to disbelieve you anyway lol

       

      Good job though! I haven't played a SO game since 3 on the PS2, but this one sits on my shelf taunting me to start it (maybe one day...)

  11. Finally finished Arumat's 30k kills in Star Ocean 4. That finished up everyone's battle trophies except Faize and Edge, who I will tackle together. In game time is 168:45 which is slower than last time but hopefully I can still finish the game inside of 250 hours.

  12. Star Ocean 4 PS3 has frozen 4 times for me and I've lost around 6 hours of progress. Just goes to show that Dragon Roar is so powerful that it literally breaks the game.

      That sucks. In the WD?


      When I farmed kills with Arumat I made sure I saved every hour. It never crashed for me spamming DR though. The game did crash twice in the WD. Which set me back a couple of hours, but in perspective that isn’t much.

      It's always frozen on an ambush while using Dragon Roar. It's been on WD 13F, Nox while grinding Robotics drops, 7SD while grinding  Ornithology drops, and most recently 7SD while grinding Arumat's kills. I've been saving every episode of the show I'm watching so about every hour or less, but not much I can do when it freezes within that timeframe.

       

      In the end it isn't a huge deal since it's such a small amount of time in comparison like you said, but it is annoying nonetheless.

      When going for my kills i saved way more than i normally would out of fear of freezing

  13. I'm fine with Star Ocean 4 not being added but I would like to defend the game's plat and grindy games in general. And I guess to me, this event is the Ultra Rare Cleanup, not the Ultra Hard Cleanup. Ultra Long games are a thing too. Star Ocean 4 is a game that takes the average player well over 400 hours to complete. You can look at the forum thread here and see that the fastest time on the front page was 415 hours with most being over 500 hours. This is not a trivial amount of time no matter how you look at it. It is a multiple-month commitment that tests your patience. Someone starting the game today may literally not have the time to complete the game before the end of the year because of real life. In terms of the game's actual difficulty, it's not hard at all. I'd put it at a 3/10 with a 3-hour risky section of 6/10. There is, however, plenty to screw up along the way. There is a missable within the first 5 minutes of the game. Miss it and you can't get the 100% item creation trophy. There are highly missable chests and quests too, where missing them and not realizing it could set you back a lot of time. The bulk of the time goes to the 900 battle trophies which range from trivial to stupid. The most notorious ones are for killing 30,000 enemies twice. The hardest one is for killing the Ethereal Queen within 10 minutes. The EQ is at the end of a 3-hour randomly generated dungeon with no save points. You have to land the killing blow with a character that cannot easily damage the EQ, who also has no visible health bar. Again, it's probably only worth a 6/10 for this one section as it's not that hard, but it's still very nerve-wracking. Some other grindy games I think about are White Knight Chronicles 1 and 2, Mugen Souls, or even Fortnite. Each of these takes hundreds and hundreds of hours as well. If I see these games completed on someone's list, I do not discount them just because the actual tasks needed to get the plat are easy. These plats require a level of dedication beyond that of your ordinary UR plat. And if we want to think about it in an opportunity cost sense, these people spend all this time monotonously platting these games when they could have spent that time playing different games that they might enjoy more. Grindy games may not test your skills or reflexes, but they can certainly test your patience and persistence.
  14. As someone who is currently working on the PS3 version of Star Ocean 4, I would approve of this inclusion to the list. It'll be my 4th completion of the game after the Xbox 360, PS4 NA, and PS4 EU lists, so I can vouch for its grindiness. Related note: I am swapping Crash 4 on my list for Star Ocean 4.
  15. Tier 1: 1. Crash 4 (3.78%) 2. Hyper Light Drifter (2.40%) - 100% 3. Dariusburst: Chronicle Saviours (0.51%) - 100% 4. SteamWorld Dig 2 (4.05%) - 100% 5. Dead Cells (3.64%) - 100% Dead Cells is done. The game was pretty fun. I enjoyed how the combat was fairly simple and quick and the game encouraged you to keep moving both by giving you a speed boost for consecutive kills and by rewarding you with better weapons if you finished areas within a time limit. I found myself using the Electric Whip most of the time. While not the highest damaging weapon available, it was pretty easy to spam and take down larger groups of enemies. It worked especially well with a weapon that could freeze or slow enemies down. I did shamelessly save scum my way to victory on the hardest difficulties. I think if I put in some more effort I could have managed to beat them legit, but I wasn't ready for another Hollow Knight where I spend 40 minutes to get to the final boss and die. And I sucked at the final boss in this game. Crash 4 up next? Possibly... I might swap it out though.
