Skotafactor’s hunt for a damn fine trophy cabinet

7 posts in this topic

1st update:

 

Knock-Knock: "How's Annie?" - This was achievable about two-thirds into the game. What a bizarre little game, not what I expected it to be at all. It's more of a 2D survival horror than the adventure game I assumed it was. I haven't gotten to the end of a play through yet, I'm not sure if this is one I'm going to see through to 100% completion. It started out interesting enough, but very quickly got incredibly repetitive. The level layouts seem to be randomly generated from what I can tell, but there really isn't a lot that differentiates the first level from the next. 

 

There is an annoying traversal through the woods in between each "Nightmare" level, and it can be quite tedious if you're going for the collectibles there. The other main collectible just involves going up to the same door 10 times in a row. This almost feels like a glitch or an exploit, but I'm not sure how the developer intended for them to be correctly found. 

 

As the game progresses, you're given a sanity meter that doesn't respawn upon reaching a new level. I didn't realize this when I first got to this section. Now I'm not sure if I have enough sanity left to earn either of the game's two main endings.

 

As for the trophy I was here to earn, "How's Annie?" - it gave me a little bit of trouble as I was having a hard time getting doppelgängers to spawn. From what I understand, they won't appear until the sixth nightmare. The trophy name is relevant given that the question was asked by Agent Cooper's doppelgänger at the end of season 2. To achieve this, you have to find a neutral doppelgänger (there are also bad ones that will run to you and hurt you). I luckily was able to get this the first time I found a neutral doppelgänger, as others online have reported issues with it.

 

I was playing on my newly acquired Vita, so maybe I'll come back to it on a long car ride or my next flight, but as for now, it's on to Trials Fusion!

Dude, what an amazing concept. It's one of the best shows ever made and I'm a huge Lynch fan. I didn't even know there were so many trophies named after concepts from the show.

Pretty sweet concept for a trophy cabinet, Twin Peaks is one of my favorite shows ever. The 1st "Life is Strange" game has a Twin Peaks trophy reference with the "Compressed" trophy, you have to take a picture of a mirror that says "Fire Walk with Me." Wouldn't really be able to tell it's a reference by the name of the trophy though so it probably wont work with your cabinet, but it's the only one I could think of atm. You would think Alan Wake would have more TP's references in the trophy names being that it's basically Twin Peaks in game form lol.

Damn fine trophy hunting idea! A bummer that the FWWM graffiti from Life Is Strange isn't reflected in the trophy art or name, huh? I feel like the thoroughly Peaksian adventure game Rainswept had a trophy referencing Lucy's HOT coffee... ʞɔɒd bᴎɘd ꙅmɿɒ ʏm ꙅɘmiƚɘmoꙅ ƚud

 

Good luck, and may your drapes run forever silent.

Totally! I was surprised at how many Truberbrook had since tonally it didn't feel very similar to TP. Life is Strange, Deadly Premonition, Oxenfree, and Kentucky Route Zero are all really fantastic games with nods to Lynch, but no trophies that would fit in my cabinet unfortunately.

Are you referring to the "Damn Fine Cup of Coffee" trophy? I actually just took that and "Damn Good Coffee" from OlliOlli2 out of my cabinet because I decided I didn't want to have any repeats. There's actually a number of games that use "Fire Walk with Me" and "The Owls Are Not What they Seem" as trophy titles, but one trophy per reference is enough for me :) And yeah, LiS is one of the many games with TP references that don't actually have any nods in the trophy list.

Update 2:

 

Trials Fusion: “Log Lady” - Okay, so I really didn't anticipate how difficult this one would be. To unlock it, you need to find a hidden tape recorder in each level. What I didn't realize from the get go was into order to access all 9 levels, you have to beat the final level of the base game. I had assumed I would have access to the DLC right away. I am quite bad at this game, so getting 110 medals was a task for me. Having all the DLC really helped with this, I'm not sure I wouldn't been able to get all the medals otherwise. The collectibles themselves weren't too difficult once I had access to all the tracks, and you don't have to finish a track for the audio log to count.

 

This is a very fun game, but very hard and punishing. Mad respect to the folks the managed to 100% it, I know for certain that I will not be one of them. I may try to clean up some of the gold DLC trophies to inflate my percentage down the line, but definitely taking a break for now.

 

Knock-Knock update: Due to an unfortunate family tragedy, I was away from home the past few days. I brought my Vita with me, and Knock-Knock is the only game I have for it, so I ended up actually seeing the game through to completion before starting Trials last night.

 

I think Worse Than Death is going to be my next game in this challenge. I haven't decided if I want to jump straight in or focus on some other games in my backlog. I was able to pick up a disc copy of The Evil Within 2 for about a quarter of its current PSN listing. I'm waiting for an opportunity for Ion Fury and Willy Morgan to drop in price before I snag either of them.
