#151 Trine 2 : Complete Story (ps4)
Trine 2 Hard
The past three months i've been playing rpgs so i felt like i needed a nice platform game to spice up things. I've already played the EU version so i bought the NA one. I'm glad this time i didn't have to search for hours for one lousy experience bubble. I only had one level where i couldn't find all exp but thankfully after watching a video i found it in the first one minute.As for the Walk in the Park trophy, i died 5-6 times in the entire playthrough except level 12 where i died 15 times or so in the place after the slide with the dreaded fire goblin. After that point, the rest was smooth sailing towards the platinum which took me around 25 hours.

Warrior Within Obtain all other trophies
Playtime: N/A (1 week, 6 days, 51 minutes)
Finally! 3 playthroughs of that is just too much (non-stacking difficulty based trophies are evil). 😑 Yes it can be speed ran in around 5 hours or so, but they make you visit the same locations & backtrack so much, it felt like double that. 😢 I would've enjoyed the game a lot better if it wasn't for that... Something else that wasn't too pleasant either was all the glitches, I ran into quite a few... most weren't that big a deal, however one completely broke the game, forcing me to restart from a backup save (costing a few hours).
Difficulty-wise it isn't that bad, the worse part is beating all the bosses on hard (it can take quite a while to chip away at their HP). Other than that, you just need some good timing while running & jumping past the saw blades, spike pits, etc. The story was okay, I am curious what happen next now... but I don't know if I have it in me to start the next one so soon. 😅 Overall it was average, but there is one thing I did really enjoy in this game, & that was the music. Honestly I think that may have been one of the reasons I was able to play it as much as I did.

#303 - Death end request
End of the World View each and every possible outcome.
Was pretty good, a bit long but luckily a pretty easy platinum, just time consuming, the pain dungeon was pretty damn long and annoying, but was generally a pretty good game.
#115 - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered
"Just another day at the office"
Earn all available trophies for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.
Modern Warfare is one of the classics; no disputing it. Coming out in (perhaps the greatest year for gaming of all time) 2007 - alongside the likes of Bioshock, Uncharted, Super Mario Galaxy, Portal, the Orange Box, Halo 3 and more!! - this was a watershed year for many franchises. This was the game that kick-started the juggernaut which is COD as we know it today; and say what you want about what the series has become since then (full disclosure: I haven't played many of the recent entries at all), this is COD at its best. Apart from MW2 (and perhaps Black Ops), MW is universally considered to be one of - if not the - best in the series.
Also disclosure: I replayed this game for the Campaign, NOT the Multiplayer. Since this game came out when I was growing up, the memories I got from playing this game (in all its HD glory) were amazing. From remarkable fruit-killing skills and switching to your pistol, to running the cargo ship solo in under 15 seconds, to "Hey Suzi", Gaz, Price... there's so much classic stuff here. The Remastered version runs great; I had basically no issues with performance at all. Music and sound are excellent, and the gunplay is rock-solid. I did find myself missing many of the new additions to the formula (such as sliding, diving, more interesting weapons, etc.) but this was an absolute blast to play through again. There are still some rough bits (how many thousands of guys did they need to send after us at that Chernobyl Ferris wheel???), but this is a rollicking good time.
How hard's the platinum? Well, honestly, it depends on how good you are at FPS games in general. If you've played one (or many) CODs like I have - including Veteran runs in all of them - you'll know what to expect here. Grenade spam, getting insta'd as soon as you peak out of cover... and also, how you can feel like a god if you play smart, and use cover and weapons well. The main 'hard' bits include: 'Hunted' with the chopper (until you learn the pathing), Ferris wheel with ya boi (just hide in a metal shack 4head), the final mission (screw that missile silo room), and - of course - 'Mile High Club' (good luck! Practice makes perfect). The common theme among most of these is - of course - the timer; being forced to rush requires you to play smart. I had a blast playing through the game again though, so despite some difficult bits, I still had fun
Overall, I would honestly recommend MW (the campaign, at least) to anyone who calls themselves a gamer. Being able to experience one of the classic gaming experiences in all its Remastered glory is too good of an opportunity to pass up; whether you've played it before or not.
Game rating: 9/10

#25 - Bastion
Difficulty - 6/10
Enjoyment - 5/10
I played this game once on PC years ago and had meant to come back to it on PS4. It went on sale for like five dollars a couple of sales ago so I decided to get it. I'll admit that for me, this was a 5/10 game, but I think my metrics are a bit different than some people's, because a 5 for me is sincerely average and not a terrible thing. You have to do two games but the only thing different about the second play through is that you can replay stages, but I found I never needed to do that. Insofar as that's the case, the plat required that I play through the exact same game twice for what felt like no reason whatsoever, which I kind of resented. If you're going to ask the player to play the game over, at least have the games be different outside of an arbitrary score being attached to the one.
That said, it was fine, short too. The challenge all comes right at the end, because there are Idols that you can activate which each of the 10 of them do something different to make the game harder, and you have to complete four wave events with all of them on. One of them is actually still very easy, but they ramp up and I lost a few times and was forced to really think about it. Not sure what I'll play next but my old account had 26 plats so whatever I get next will tie my old account so that's cool.
INTERMISSION(PC) - Trails In The Sky
So, Between KH3 and HyperDimension, i took some time away from Trophy Hunting to finally get around to The Legend Of Heroes:Trails In The Sky. And what can i say other than what a ride. The Story, The Characters, the amazing music just drew me in. Now, you may wonder why i have posted it in my checklist. The Reason was, I FINISHED EVERYTHING. ALL DIFFICULTIES. ALL SIDEQUESTS. ALL CHESTS. I Enjoyed the games that much, despite the problems that i had with the 3rd.
Trails In The Sky FC
This was a slow introduction, and part of the reason why it took so long for me to get into it was because of the slow pace of the worldbuilding at the beginning. But Boy oh Boy, when the story gets going, the story gets going, leading to a RAGE INDUCING CLIFFHANGER THAT I AM SO GLAD I DIDNT HAVE TO WAIT 10 YEARS TO SEE THE CONTINUATION LIKE SOME PEOPLE. This Game is avalible on PC as well as Vita(Albeit in Japanese), which is where the picture of Estelle, (Girl on Left) comes from.
Trails In The Sky SC
This game takes place DIRECTLY after the ending of FC, and it basically doesnt slow down the entire time. The plot reveals, the introduction of the big bads of the series, and the level of lore building was insane. One of my favourite things was finding this NPC, called Anton around each of the towns, and that was one of the achievements. I REPEAT, DO NOT PLAY THIS UNLESS YOU HAVE BEATEN FC. THAT IS ALL.
Trails In The Sky The 3rd
This was a filler game of sorts, you could probaly just watch cutscenes and be fine. This one was more of a dungeon crawler, with story elements hidden behind doors that you had to reach. Some had set character requirements, others required certain Items. A great way to cap off the arc.
(Star Door 14 is the one thing you should take away from this game)
Overall, Trails is now one of my favourite series of games, and i cant wait to get stuck into Zero No Kiseki and Ao No Kiseki.
33# - HyperDimention Neptunia ReBirth 1
Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 Master
Date Earned: 9th December 2018
Completed in 3 Days, 14 Hours
So Many References. So much Nep. I have actually bought all the games on PC, and this is where i reccomend people play them, as most are in 60FPS there, with better display options. Basic RPG with tons of animu/game references.
34# - Persona 4: Dancing All Night
Dancing All Night
Date Earned: 3rd June 2019
Completed in 3 Months 4 Days
Well, i finally got around to beating Persona 4:Dancing all night. Way more story in this game. Most of it told through Visual Novel style cutscenes. I didnt like the story or the songs much, compared to P3's list. Top song was Snowflakes. Not really much else to say, the last hour or so was a grind.
God i feel cheap.
BEYOND: TWO SOULS™ MASTER Collected all trophies!
#97: London Detective Mysteria
May I spare a moment of your time to talk about one of my new favourite otome visual novels? This game simply oozes charm and personality. Thanks to XSEED's superlative localisation work, it often felt like reading a Victorian novel, with fanciful phrasings and lovely period-piece affectations everywhere. You play as Lady Whiteley, a headstrong young noblewoman with a penchant for detective work who is granted the opportunity to attend the prestigious Harrington Academy's detective's course after an incident with Queen Victoria's new pet cat is resolved thanks to her assistance. Her classmates include the offspring of several well-known literary characters, such as the sons of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, the son of Arsene Lupin, Miss Marple's granddaughter Sara, a dodgy fellow who may or may not be Jack the Ripper, and even Akechi and Kobayashi from Edogawa Ranpo's "Boy Detectives Club" novels. The class goes on many adventures, which the VN presents through a rather slice-of-life succession of initial chapters that comprise the common route, only to knuckle down into a more serious plot involving conspiracies and the nefarious deeds of Professor Moriarty once you reach each love interest's specific route.
Usually when it comes to otome VNs, there're always a few characters that I don't especially like, but in LDM, -everyone- is likeable. Whiteley herself is a blessedly assertive heroine, unafraid of expressing herself and getting involved in all kinds of mischief, and I am rather hard-pressed to single out any of the very handsome LIs as especially great - because they're all fantastic! I also rather appreciated the "friendship endings" for Marple and Kobayashi. I say all otome VNs should totally steal allow themselves to be inspired by that. Top it all off with a lovely soundtrack that reminds me the most of Professor Layton, and you have an outstanding otome VN. Well recommended to any and all that are even vaguely interested in the genre!
I don't know if it was bad timing or not...you know, one of those situations where you start on something you've wanted to play for awhile, but then it turns out to not really be what you wanted to play? This was Heavy Rain...I started it back in February, and it took until now to finish it because I just couldn't play it in long bursts. I never got around to playing it on PS3, so I was always interested in this. But, while I didn't hate it, and the story was pretty good (with some odd inaccuracies)...I just don't know if a game entirely devoted to QTE's is my thing. If a game has them for certain moments, I don't mind...but an entire game centered around them gets really old, really fast. Kinda worried now, about eventually playing Beyond: Two Souls...I might have to just to give this type of game another try, but it'll be awhile.

Definitely, just like the training dummy .

I really liked the game despite the mediocre ratings. Only thing that kinda bothered me was that you're constantly underleveled even if you do every sidemission available. But all in all the atmosphere, the story and the characters were really worth the, from time to time, clunky combat system.
#318 - Need for Speed: Rivals
Quite a bland, disappointing game unfortunately. I loved Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, and found Most Wanted kind of average, so going into this I was a bit mixed on the franchise as a whole. I was hoping this'd recapture the magic Hot Pursuit had but nope. It's a bland, open world racer with literal checklist design. You get a checklist of objectives (gold x events, bust x racers, drift x yards, etc.), complete it, and get given another. Over and over and over. And none of it is particularly engaging.
When you're not doing random things like driving past a speed camera 5 times at x mph, the actual events themselves... are okay. But something about the controls in this felt a bit off, especially the drifting, so the actual events themselves weren't even as fun as Hot Pursuit. I appreciate that, as long as you're at a safehouse/compound, you can fast travel to any event unlike in NFS MW where you had to manually drive to each one. I still prefer Hot Pursuit's method that felt like it was ripped straight out of Burnout, where you pick an event from a list and that's it - no faffing around in a large open world, straight to the events back to back, but at least Rivals was better on that front than MW was.
Maybe it's just an issue with the last-gen port, but this game was also pretty buggy. I had quite a number of crashes, each of which reset my progress on my current checklist slightly, sometimes wiping it entirely, and it would also often slowdown mid-game. Pretty annoying but thankfully none of the checklists take overly long so it didn't ever take too long to get back to where I was. The graphics also seemed a bit subpar even for last-gen but that's not a big deal. One of my biggest issues with this game though is the lack of a pause button. Why? It's not always online, even when playing offline you don't have the ability to pause the game at all, which is especially troublesome on the racer side as cops can bust you when you're afk. As a cop, worst that can happen is a racer take you out but that's far less likely than a cop busting a racer. Very annoying and part of the reason I put this game off for years, left a very bad first impression on me.
Overall, this did end up being better than my first impressions a couple of years ago, but it's certainly not great and I'm glad to finally be done with it.
Plat #23 Life is Strange
I haven't been feeling to much in the gaming mood or to grind many trophies, so I went the story route and just kind of relaxed and enjoyed this instead. I was a little skeptical on the game at first but really started to enjoy it around episode 2 when the choices you make start to make impacts on what happens.

A nice enough game and enjoyable for a while. I am highly thankful completing all of the 240 puzzles aren't required for the platinum, it would have been a bit much for me. Super easy and you don't even need a guide to find the solutions!

#398- Destroy All Humans!
Ruler of Earth
Unlock all other trophies.
Never played this on the PS2, but always wanted to. Really humorous game about an alien invasion. Styled somewhat after the PS2 GTA games with open world areas, though you can't drive cars. But you do get to fly and blow stuff up with a spaceship! Lot of fun. You can hear some funny dialogue with every human you choose to use the mind reading ability on, as well.
It would possibly be a bit frustrating, as there are no checkpoints during missions. You die or get detected in a stealth mission, and it's all the way back to the start.. Thankfully, there are cheat codes which don't disable trophies. I'm all for making my life easier, so I started using them after getting sent back to the start enough times.
Only thing I didn't enjoy were some of the grindy trophies which added nothing to the experience (other than boredom). But none of them take an insanely long time. It also crashed twice, which doesn't sound like too many based on what I've read of others' experiences.
Those poor cows. 😢 Not sure why it's not embedding; never had an issue before..
#5 - Sleeping Dogs
Hong Kong Legend
Earn all the Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition trophies to unlock this platinum trophy
Enjoyment: 9/10 (some of the collectibles get tedious after a while)
This is one of my favorite games.
While it is not the second coming of Lord Cheesus, the combat and the story are fun. I got all the achievements for the vanilla and definitive edition releases on PC and now I just got the plat 😁
True Gal*Gun Master
I'd like to dedicate my new platinum to Sony, that not in a million years will release another game like this 😭
#371 - Forgotton Anne
Not much of a fan of the platforming. The puzzles were alright, but the best parts were the art style and story by far.
#800 - God of War (Ps4). This game is a masterpiece, 10/10. Nothing more to say
