#200- Dark Souls (PS3)
So, a lot of Vita versions of LEGO games are mini-game laden facsimiles of their console counterparts.I was surprised to find that this was a decent, if not smaller, version of the PS3/4 release. Although the run time is very padded with the dueling mode thing.

The Horned Boy
Acquired All Trophies
Time: 16 hours, 29 minutes
I've played SotC at least 100 times across PS2/PS3 versions and this is the definitive way to play it, the PS2/PS3 versions were breathtaking for the time but this takes it to a whole other level (apart from Wander's face), Truly an unmissable experience that I would recommend to just about anyone. I now have to find it in my heart to do the PS3 version with its outdated controls, frame rate, and the Cornucopia & Endangered Lizards trophies.
250 - Grand Theft Auto V
I saved this one for the milestone. Having spent the last few weeks grinding online to reach level 100, I finally got there last night having played a million stunt races. It also continues my trend of trying to clean up my difficult/longer backlog games before starting new games, this one coming in at 4 years and 9 months for the platinum. I have 4 trophies left for 100% (heist-related), but I'm happy to have finally earned Los Santos Legend. =]
The walking dead: the final season
The final season
I was wrong about this game being trash, the first 2 episodes was boring as fuxk, but the 3rd and 4th episodes were amazing in my opinion, I really recommend this game it’s better then season 2 and the new frontier, and now I have all of the walking dead games.
#332 - Goodbye Deponia
Goodbye Deponia is a decent conclusion to the Deponia trilogy. I'm not sure how they're going to continue from this in the fourth game - or why they even bothered caving into fan demand because this clearly was supposed to be the end. I hope that once I get around to playing the fourth game, it won't feel forced or pointless. The Day of the Tentacle-style multiple character system in this one was interesting, with the plot threads from one character sometimes altering the plot thread of another. Each character had their own specific goal and the environments they go through are distinct and themed. Rufus continues to be a good protagonist, and the supporting cast are good as well. The puzzles could get a little bit obscure due to the multiple character system but I have given up at trying to jump through strange mental hoops to solve point and click puzzles so I just followed a guide. I'm in it for the story and characters, not the gameplay.
Overall I think Broken Sword is still my favourite point and click series, although I may be heavily biased as it was also my first, but the Deponia trilogy is certainly a close second.
PLAT #353: REVERIE (PS4)
Tai of New Zealand
Collect all other trophies.
Pretty disappointing pick up. There are some things to like in Reverie, but there's just not enough of it. Further, there are some annoyances as well (I had some issues with control, e.g.). Easy plat, mostly because of an easy game. With more development (more dungeons, more overworld, more tools to use, etc.), this would have been a good Zelda clone. On the plus side, the trivia about the birds was very interesting. Did you know that every single Black Robin in existence came from a single female?

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2
Earn every Trophy in the game
I liked the first game better... it was a proper 3D platform where you could control the camera. While this one has a set camera you can't move, which works fine but just... isn't as fun to me. But it has been 5 years since I played the first one so maybe my memory is better than the reality. Coincidentally, I got both the plats in September. 7th for the first game, 13th for the second. Had I known I would've wrapped this up by the 7th to have a neat story on it. Oh well. It's more fun when it's unintentional anyway.
The controls can be a bit hinky at times, particularly when trying to platform using the lizard/tongue. Sometimes it just doesn't want to attach to where you're supposed to be able to. Or trying to suck enemies with the magnet and instead picking up a huge orb thing flying in the sky instead.
Once you hit space there are a lot of levels with pretty severe framerate drops, which is a shame. It really made going through a pain in the ass.
The plat isn't too bad, but trying to get gold on every level just gets tedious. It's not hard per say, but how easy or hard it is seems completely random. Some levels you can get nearly all the points needed from the first group of enemies, while others you barely squeak by with the 2x bonus (requiring all 3 fruits of the level to get) by the end. It's odd. And just not fun to have to focus on ensuring your points are right before you finish or continue to a new checkpoint.
The fact the dots collected serve no function beyond getting 10 points (nothing) or an extra level at 100 of them is lame. I remember them having more purpose in the first one, unlocking minigames? idk... but it's just kind of stupid. Especially with the bonus areas having so many in them when there's no need. Every level has like 5+ extra life items in it anyway. And the hub has 2 per area, and when you load into a different area of the hub and back into the previous one then it's all reset so you can farm them there if you somehow need them. I rarely had less than 99 (sometimes it displayed as 100 but... idk)
I really like the music. I'm probably one of the few who has watched the show and played the games, I like the show itself even if it's a bit juvenile. So I was used to the characters, but this game doesn't have the same voice actors which throws me off particularly the side characters. Not sure if Pac is the same tbh, but everyone else is definitely wrong.
Oh and one other glitch I had a problem with is getting stuck on a ice slide. I went to freeze some water that would turn into ice that you jump on and slide on. But I was too close when I jumped and I attached to a low end part of the slide where it came upwards. So I was sliding on the air basically and stuck there. I couldn't get out and the water never unfreezes if you're near it (that I noticed, though it would unfreeze if you walked away which I couldn't). So I had to replay the level which was really annoying since I had the gold score already for it...
It was overall fun though, just a bit bland.

It's really not as bad as the internet will make you believe.It's a generic shooter but if you go in with low expectations and the need to shoot xenos then you won't be disappointed.Overall it's an ok experience and the online doesn't take long.

Mainly played these to pass time until Borderlands 3. It was a decent trilogy of games...probably made more awkward by the fact that this felt like the end and they went ahead and made a fourth game (which I'll play eventually). If you're in to point and click adventure games...give this series a go. However, when it comes to trophies you WILL need a guide. I don't understand how people figure these games out in a timely manner considering the descriptions for the trophies are just jokes, they give you nothing in terms of what to do, and a lot of the puzzles would require so much trial and error that doing this legit would be an epic chore.
Plat #156 Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc
Fun 7 Would be 8 but the grind at the end severely ruins the platinum experience.
Difficulty 5/10 You can turn down the difficulty and brute force your way through the puzzles but your first time if you're really trying to do it the honest way, is a nice brain stretching game without anything too impossible
Time 45 hours played over 5 years lol. I had bad luck with school mode and the slot machine, can be completed quicker if you know what you're doing!

Storm Boy (EU)
Current rarity: 98.69%
Storm Boy is a short, simple game with a story as much about friendship as it is loneliness. If you've ever loved and considered a pet a true friend, this little game just might tug at your heart strings, as it did mine. It's well worth playing.
