Nice work on Ikaruga and congrats on the plat!


Thank you! :lol: Your chapter 3 and chapter 4 S++ videos really helped me out on my way towards the plat!

Congratulations buddy! You moved one step close to the plasma state of existence so I guess you're Liquid right now! 

 

I can't imagine feeling all that pain just for spending hours and hours in something so demanding as this. That's why I believe I wouldn't never try to achieve something like speed running, LOL. Glad you have the time to put it into full throttle in this hobby and makes you passionate enough to even try things like Ikaruga! Can't wait to see your next challenge!

Amazing job! Can't wait for the next poll! 


Thank you! 😄 I'm excited too! I have an idea for the next poll that may make things more interesting but I need to do some testing first.

Yep, definitely not touching Ikaruga. Unless I have no backlog left.

 

I find it amusing that you got some piss easy games like Assassin's Creed II and Until Dawn that aren't even finished. But you have hard as nails games that less than 99.5 percent of players will go for, so for that, you get my respect.


Thanks! 🙂 Completion will probably always be a bit too draining for me to put any serious effort into trying to maintain. Finishing up some difficult games here and there is one thing but trying to finish nearly every game that winds up on my profile demands a type of dedication that is alien to me. 😂

Haha, I think ExistentialLiquid sounds even more pretentious than ExistentialSolid so it's probably a fitting promotion :P

Thank you! This has been a lot of fun and you're right that I'm very fortunate that I'm able to dedicate so much of my time to trophy hunting. Challenging games have always been exciting to overcome so I'm looking forward to whatever's up next!

Want a hard game? Then try for all Gold medals on Need for Speed prestige DLC. Guarantee you'll be suffering for that 100%.

Me too :D I stopped caring about trophies myself, yet for some reason I really enjoy following other people's journeys. Now in this one there is not only talent and dedication, but also good narrative around the struggle, and I enjoy it even more :D

Thank you all so much! (including those of you that are not quoted in this post!) <3 
Over this past month, I've been overwhelmed by how kind and supportive you all have been of me and this goofy challenge idea.
It really means the world to me and I'll try my best to keep things entertaining!

...and just like that, you’re one step closer to achieving platinum godliness, next to Floriiss. Great job on getting the platinum!

I remember trying one of the very first prestige events back when I first played NFS awhile back, getting absolutely destroyed, and thinking "nope!"
So I have no doubts that it will present a serious challenge! Would you like me to add it to the nomination list?

Edit: I have added NFS [100%] to the the nomination list just in case you intended to nominate the game as the poll starts tomorrow!

Haha, thank you! 😄 I'm several leagues below players like Floriiss but as long as I enjoy a challenge, I'll keep pushing myself!

If you are still accepting nominations, and you also accept driving games then here we go: Dirt 2.0 100% -> Flatout trophy. Good luck. :D

Absolutely! And driving games are perfect as long as players that play on a pad are not at any serious disadvantage (like in Assetto Corsa).
Dirt Rally 2.0 looks to be A-OK in that regard and, based on the notoriety of the Flatout trophy, looks like an incredibly daunting challenge!
I have added it to the nomination list! Thanks! :D

This a personal one. I want to try it too, so I nominate Gran Turismo Sport. The guide states 10/10. Probably because is purely skill based as you need to win 91 races and is completely online. So, would be great if we coincide in that one in this year LOL.

Gran Turismo Sport's online grind does look intimidating! :D I worry a bit about the time estimate though. Do you happen to know how accurate the 250+ hour estimate is? 

Since each player is limited to one nomination, GT Sport will replace Dragon Age: Inquisition as your nominated game. Assuming that is alright with you, I have removed DA:I and substituted GT Sport on the nominee list (let me know if you change your mind)!

i love your idea with this challenge with the poll system and the update,

i see isaac has been nominated and thats one of my favorite game, when i started playing (5 year ago) it i really liked but i had no hope of getting the platinum and stopped playing after like 50h of playtime. In 2020 i started to watch a lot of isaac stream and ultimaly gathering a lot of knowledge, so i choose to restart the game and after more than 1 month i got the 100%!

i think you are way enough skilled for the plat but i warn you the game is way more harder if you dont spend your life on the wiki until you know almost everything by heart (really satisfying to play when you reach that knowledge).

If you only go for the platinum, it maybe will be harder because of the godhead item, for unlocking that item you will need to beat everything as "the lost", a character with only 1 pv, but if you buy the first dlc you, the lost will be able to start each run with "holy mantle", a god tier item that negate the firsr hit of the room you just enter, that item transform "the lost" from the worst character to one of the most interesting to play (for some other reason too), but if you have the dlc you will need to do more thing to get the platinum sadly.

 

(sorry for my bad english, i hope everything is understanble)

The way to accurately chain those planes isn't by shooting normally. It is by mashing so your shots are on top of each other in the centre. Now they can't be destroyed out of order. I didn't know this until I was done either but that is the way to do it consistently.

 

If you still take requests, what about Tetris Effect.

If you still take nominees i'll nominate Verlet Swing :D

 

Its a game still nobody on psn have been able to complete, but then again its not a very known game. Its not glitched since people have completed the game on steam and xbox already. The one thing that makes this plat very hard is the last level is very hard and then there is a mission where you need to complete a set amount of levels after each other without failing once and that last hard level is also the last level in that mission. So yeah a very hard plat.

Your English was great, don't worry! 😄 I'm really happy you're liking this challenge so far and thanks for sharing your experience with Binding of Isaac! For the sake of time, my plan was to only buy the base game and focus on earning the platinum because there's a good chance that trying to both platinum and complete the DLC would push my play time well over the 300 hour mark which would be a bit much for the sake of this challenge. Depending on how much I enjoyed the game, I would likely return at a later date to buy and play through the DLC on my own time if I had fun and wanted to keep playing.

If the game manages to win a future poll, I will absolutely make sure to study the wiki along the way so that I have a better understanding of what's going on!

I never even thought about mashing to fire individual shots in that section but that does make sense. If only I had known sooner. 😭 Thanks for letting me know!

Yeah, requests are always open! 😄 With Tetris Effect, a lot of the estimates I've seen for the game tend to push past the 300 hour limit I've set for the challenge and, considering that I haven't even learned how to play Tetris at a basic level, I suspect I would have to grind for 300-400+ hours to reach the skill required to platinum Tetris Effect. It's a great choice though so apologies that I'm not able to take it on just yet. If there are any other games you'd like to nominate in its place, please let me know!

Definitely, I'm always up for more nominations! :D
I played a bit of Verlet Swing awhile back! Even the early levels present a pretty steep challenge so I'm not surprised to hear that it gets ridiculous towards the end. Sounds like a great pick! I've added it to the nomination list!
