The 'No Point in Dying' Experience Thread

10 posts in this topic

A place to share anything about your experience when trying for this trophy!

 

I only started going for it last night, I completed my second full play-through, first one with the trophy in mind. I used to familiarise myself with the obstacles that were giving me trouble. It was over quite quickly and I was happy about that!

 

This morning I started my first real attempt, I honestly didn't feel like it come this run, my first death was a silly one - the wood fell on top of me at the tree stumps. Later my second death came upon me, a silly one also, when the water is rising and you have to stand on the 2nd crate that's filled with something, I drowned. It became quite smooth at this point, until, an area where the worm controls you, you had to climb a cog and I got crushed. Continuing onwards, my death count was at 3 and I was over halfway! Sadly my 4th death happened when climbing up 2 cogs, it was a very mindless mistake. So the odds were against me at this point. Probably 10 minutes of game-play to go until the end... In the final area with the guns I got shot making my last possible death, it was a sad moment as this was easier than the platforming I just got through right before. I managed to pull through the next bits unscathed and the final jump was there. I was ready for it, I practised it about 15 times. I jumped. I went passed the gravity changer but by too little, I pressed the circle button and just flew straight into the spikes. I finished with 6 deaths. :( until next time... Probably tonight, since I had many silly deaths.

Got the trophy now - 5 silly deaths and I had to do the last ~10 chapters on 5 deaths but it all worked out!

It's all about feeling confident with the tricky areas, once you've played through it you should be familiar with them, you can smooth sections out with chapter select. Example being the last few chapters, other than that it's just a matter of playing it through noting down where you died, so you can learn from your mistakes.

I failed last night and I was pretty close. Later I found myself in a similar situation this morning but I actually got the trophy. I died a total of four times. I find that this trophy made the experience rewarding as it forces you to learn the game inside and out such as getting the timing right in those tricky puzzles and avoiding death in every way possible. Each run I did made me learn more and more about the game as well new tricks to successfully get past each chapter.

 

Number one priority is how safely I can complete each puzzle with the lowest chance of death should I mess up. Secondly, only one death is allowed before the first hotel sign. This is so that I have at least four lives left should I mess up. 

 

Overall experience was heart pounding. Wondering when will I die in every chapter. As I got closer to the end, I could hear my own heartbeat. Hands were getting sweaty and shaking the PS Vita. Couldn't think straight. Then all of that went away like a breath exhaled  as I reached the end and got the trophy. This has marked the end of a long and tough journey but a rewarding one.

Funny, I had this done on the Vita months ago and got the ps3 version recently. My first run was for overall run, a recon. Then, second run was already serious since I remembered everything already. Done it beautifully, got to the very last part (in front of the mirror you need to break to win) with 3 deaths so far. Stared deeply into the glass while gravity reverted back and forth, took a break... Okay, that was it, I just had died 3 times so far and I was 1 jump away from it. Ok, let's do it! Death. WHAT? Ok, doesn't matter. Death. FUCK ME, I CAN'T DIE ANYMORE. Death. FUCK THIS. Death. Arrrrrghhhhhh. Win. 7 Deaths total, 4 on the very last jump.

 

Tried again right away, couldn't even get past the part where the spider chases you.

 

Gave it a break. One hour later, tried again, made it with 3 deaths.

I've gotten tired of this game.  I get bored with the repetition and die a lot from not paying enough attention.  I have gotten to the end a few times with only a couple of deaths only to die several times at the same spot.  I definitely need a break.  Wasted too much time.

don't give up mate. I thought the same but just managed it 15 minutes ago - and that was even after I had a disaster at the HOTEL sign and died 3 times in a row.

It's totally possible as long as you have the patience, but also the cool head not to panic if you end up with only a couple of lives left.

 

Which part do you keep dying on? I have a tip for the final bit which makes it very simple.

Actually, the last rooms are not that bad as long as you know exactly what to do - the buzzsaws are the worst thing in the whole game imo

To be honest. This trophy kinda ruined the game for me. Running through Limbo over and over until you remember every single puzzle... Not cool.

 

I unlocked "No Point In Dying" 10 minutes ago, and at the end, it was worth it. Good luck to you brother!

The two crates and the buzzsaw section is shit. You have to time those crates just right because if you don't stack them on top of one another, or the saw destroys one of them, you may as well commit suicide.

 

The HOTEL letter sign is also shit. Not so much the first section but near the end of the game when you have to press up on your control stick to move your character. Then you have to precisely time your jump while holding up, also while pushing the action button for the gravity, and you have to do this while the letter is still lit or you're going to die because you're not going to make it to that safe spot.
