  1. I had the exact same problem with the Sequence 7 trophy. It's a known glitch, and from what I've read, it seems as if it can strike at any time and affect any of the trophies..., and infuriatingly, nobody seems to know what causes it - looks like we just got unlucky. Don't continue with the rest of the game, as it is unlikely that any further story trophies will pop after getting the glitch. Do you have an older save backed up somewhere? If so, you can try deleting the game data and then reloading that save. If not, then unfortunately, it looks like your only option is to delete the game data and then restart the entire game over again. If you have to start over, then I recommend backing up your save file after every sequence, just in case it happens again.
  2. Managed to get another line finished before the end of 2020. Here is the final state of my card: Ended the year with 16 squares marked: [B1] With a # Or Punctuation Mark in the Title - Trine 2: Complete Story [B3] Historical Fiction or Mythology - Assassin's Creed II [B4] With an Isometric View - Lara Croft GO [B5] Metroidvania or Rogue-like - Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night [I1] Favourite Genre - Kick & Fennick [I2] Arcade, Rhythm, or Puzzle - The Spectrum Retreat [I3] With Player-Operated Vehicles - Urban Trial Freestyle [I4] That You Started But Didn't Finish - Trine: Enchanted Edition [N1] That Gives You the Feels - Unravel [N3] Player's Choice - Metro: Last Light Redux [G1] In a Series New To You - Rayman Origins [G4] Nonviolent - Absolute Drift: Zen Edition [G5] Developed In a Foreign Country - Metro 2033 Redux [O1] Redeemed From PS Plus - Titanfall 2 [O2] DLC Pack or Standalone DLC - Borderlands 2 (Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty) [O5] Sci-Fi or Fantasy Themes - Mass Effect Thank you for running this event again, @XX_FTW.
  3. Completed a line! 15 squares now marked: [B1] With a # Or Punctuation Mark in the Title - Trine 2: Complete Story [B3] Historical Fiction or Mythology - Assassin's Creed II [B4] With an Isometric View - Lara Croft GO [B5] Metroidvania or Rogue-like - Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night [I1] Favourite Genre - Kick & Fennick [I3] With Player-Operated Vehicles - Urban Trial Freestyle [I4] That You Started But Didn't Finish - Trine: Enchanted Edition [N1] That Gives You the Feels - Unravel [N3] Player's Choice - Metro: Last Light Redux [G1] In a Series New To You - Rayman Origins [G4] Nonviolent - Absolute Drift: Zen Edition [G5] Developed In a Foreign Country - Metro 2033 Redux [O1] Redeemed From PS Plus - Titanfall 2 [O2] DLC Pack or Standalone DLC - Borderlands 2 (Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty) [O5] Sci-Fi or Fantasy Themes - Mass Effect
  4. Fuse has the "Ninja Style" trophy (Stealth takedown 4 enemies at once in a four player co-op game).
  5. If the timestamps are based on Unix time, I just hope that we don't run into the year 2038 bug. We'll probably be gaming on the PS8 by then, but no doubt I'll still be chipping away at my PS3 and PS4 backlogs!
  6. I never use fast travel - I see no point in having a big open world to explore if you're just going to fast travel your way through it. Also, in the Mirror's Edge games, I always play with the red highlighted objects that show you the route turned off. I find that figuring out where you need to go on your own is usually a fun puzzle.
  7. Mid year update: No lines completed yet but nine squares marked: [B3] Historical Fiction or Mythology - Assassin's Creed II [B4] With an Isometric View - Lara Croft GO [B5] Metroidvania or Rogue-like - Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night [I1] Favourite Genre - Kick & Fennick [I3] With Player-Operated Vehicles - Urban Trial Freestyle [I4] That You Started But Didn't Finish - Trine: Enchanted Edition [G1] In a Series New To You - Rayman Origins [O1] Redeemed From PS Plus - Titanfall 2 [O5] Sci-Fi or Fantasy Themes - Mass Effect
  8. Earned my 25th platinum trophy - Assassin's Creed II. A fairly enjoyable experience, although I did find the parkour controls to be a bit wonky at times. I'm interested to see how Ezio's story proceeds in AC: Brotherhood and Revelations. The trophies weren't bad at all, with the exception of the infamous "In Memory of Petruccio" (Find all 100 feathers). However, I did manage to get them all without using a guide - one of my proudest gaming achievements!
  9. Here is my card for 2020: 16 categories are new to me; there are 9 that I also had last year ("Developed in a Foreign Country" is even in the same place on the card as it was for me last year!) Got the first square marked: [B5] Metroidvania or Rogue-like: Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
  10. Haven't posted a update since February - I actually forgot about this event for large portions of the year, but I was just about able to get one line completed, although I left it very late. Did a playthrough of The House of the Dead 4 last night with a PSMove controller to knock out square N4 and complete the middle column at 22:41 on New Year's Eve. Marked 12 squares in total: [I1] Based On a Non-Gaming IP: Batman: Arkham City [N1] That You Can Beat In One Sitting: Entwined [G1] Starts With The First Letter In Your PSNID: Metrico [N2] That Takes "Forever" To Beat: Borderlands [O2] Featuring a Romance or Romance Options: Dead Space 3 [I3] With a Female Protagonist: Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light [N3] Player's Choice: Borderlands 2 [O3] With Player Choices or Multiple Endings: Forma.8 [I4] Arcade, Rhythm, or Puzzle: The Witness [N4] Peripheral-Based: The House of the Dead 4 [N5] Cult Favourite: Super Meat Boy [G5] Developed in a Foreign Country: Typoman: Revised Thank you very much for running this, @XX_FTW. If you are planning to run this event again, I have some ideas for new categories: - With less than 1,000 owners on PSNProfiles - Has a character with the same first name as yourself - Set in more than one country - Features time travel
  11. There are 36 missions in total, and 5 x 36 = 180, so you do need to 5-star every mission to unlock the last high value target.
  12. As a maths geek, I've always loved this platinum image from Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (it's the famous Sierpinski triangle).
  13. Fuel - Bought the PS3 version at first; a couple of years later, I noticed that the PC version had a mod that I wanted to try out so bought that too. Metal Gear Solid 2 & Metal Gear Solid 3 - Owned the originals for PS2; these were also part of The Legacy Collection on PS3. Mirror's Edge - Triple dipped! Purchased the PC version first, but my computer wasn't quite good enough to run it without some frame rate drops, so I then bought it in a PSN sale. A few months ago, I found a physical copy for £0.99, and picked it up for a third time so I could delete the digital version and free up a few more gigabytes on my PS3's nearly full hard drive. Portal 2 - Originally purchased from Steam, later picked up the PS3 version so that a friend and I could do couch co-op more easily. Sonic 1, 2, 3, Sonic & Knuckles, Sonic Spinball - Owned the Mega Drive cartridges for 1, 2 and 3. Bought Sonic Mega Collection Plus for PS2 which featured all of these games. Bought Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection for PS3 which also has them all. And Sonic 1 can be unlocked in Sonic Generations. In total, that's 2 copies of S&K and Sonic Spinball, 3 copies of Sonic 2 and Sonic 3, and 4 copies of the original Sonic The Hedgehog. Tomb Raider: Anniversary - Got the PC version from Steam, then bought the Tomb Raider Trilogy for PS3 (Anniversary, Legend and Underworld).
  14. Three squares now marked - Based On a Non-Gaming IP: Batman: Arkham City is the latest addition to my card. This game would have also fit the bill for the "With Mystery or Detective Themes" square, and that corner square looked awfully enticing... but using square I1 gives me two marks in both the I column and the top row, so that's where it's going. List of Squares Marked & Games Played [I1] Based On a Non-Gaming IP: Batman: Arkham City [N1] That You Can Beat In One Sitting: Entwined [I3] With a Female Protagonist: Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light
  15. Marked my second square - That You can Beat In One Sitting: Entwined I played through most of this game last year but never got around to doing stages 8 and 9. Decided to start over this afternoon and got through the 9 "story" levels in about an hour. Entwined has some really nice relaxing visuals to behold in the free-flying areas in between levels, which is exactly the breather you need after stages that often require intense concentration (especially in the last three levels). A very short game if all you want to do is reach the ending, but I'm going to need to invest a lot of time practising if I'm ever going to get 100% due to the very difficult challenge mode.
