Trophy #4,517

Mafia II - Jimmy's Vendetta DLC (PS3)

 

51L32f530.png

 

:bronze:Explorer - Drive a total of 1,000 miles in vehicles in "Jimmy's Vendetta."

3,654 Achievers out of 298,049 Owners for a rarity percentage of 4.42% (Ultra rare)

 

PSNP uses a weighted rarity rating for DLC Trophies, so whenever you see an Ultra Rare in the list of a game's expansion you know you are in for a bad time. Of all the dumb, unnecessary, and frankly poorly thought out DLC Trophies, Explorer is perhaps one of the most infamous examples.

 

This lowly Bronze is one of ten Trophies in Jimmy's Vendetta, the first addition to Mafia II following its release in 2010; interestingly, it launched only two weeks after the base game came out.  An arcade-styled batch of content, this DLC features an incredibly loose narrative that sees you run through dozens of hastily thrown together combat and driving missions as you try to get a high score for the meaningless leaderboards. No wonder they got it out so quickly, then! It's the quintessential post-launch cash grab offering nothing that you didn't see or do during the main game, and it's frankly a little laughable.

 

Vendetta's Trophy list is okay if a little grindy outside of Explorer, which is downright bizarre; it asks you to travel 1,000 miles (1609 km) in vehicles across the DLC. Problem is, a completionist playthrough will only get you to between 150 and 250 (optimistic estimate) miles across its 6 to 8 hour run time. Meaning that you have to grind out at least three times as many miles to meet the bizarre 1,000 threshold. Applying Hanlon's Razor, there is no way anyone at 2K Czech thought this Trophy's requirements through or properly play-tested it.

 

Now, players would normally have to grind for hours.... and hours.... and hours driving up and down the highway, constantly sticking to the speed limit or having to deal with the overly-anal police in the game. However, because Mafia II had a rather troublesome development behind it, a few mostly benign glitches remain in the release build. Including one method where you can clip through a luncheonette window with your car, sending you tumbling through base of the environment into oblivion.

 

Why is this useful? For one, it accumulates 'City Score' (points for each jump, drift, etc.) which takes you to Millionaire through about 3 and a half hours of falling, but for two, if you rubberband the R2 button, that distance you fall is counted as having been driven. So, about 90% of people who have unlocked Explorer have let their PS3s (and PS4s, because this PoS Trophy was NOT toned down in the Definitive Edition re-release) run overnight for multiple nights, with the car tumbling through the void and the R2 button taped down. And that looks a little like this;

 

Spoiler

 

 

 

Nice one, nothing like letting my poor PS3 run for hours on end for a stupid, lowly Bronze. Maybe someone should lose their job for this. Oh, wait, all of the devs did ;_;

 

I am incredibly sad that 2K Games closed 2K Czech down and we never got to see a true sequel to Mafia II - and rather incensed that the franchise was then whored out to Hangar 13 who shat out what I consider to be one of the worst games of the Playstation 4 era in Mafia III. But the original Czech team really did themselves no favours in my eyes by sticking in this bizarrely stupid Trophy - and it was only through their own shortcomings that I could unlock somewhat hassle-free.

Devil May Cry 5

Trophy: Clear Bloody Palace mode as Vergil

 

Finally I managed to get round to finishing the Vergil DLC for Devil May Cry 5. This was by far the most difficult trophy within the DLC but if you use a super costume and you suspend and back-up your save it's way easier than clearing it normally. Happy to have this trophy out of the way which means I now have 91% of the trophies in Devil May Cry 5.

Gold RushEarn 70 Gold Medals in Story missions.

 

Now, I'm usually pretty fond of secondary objectives and all that... but RDR2 went about it in the worst way, forcing in objectives that ruin your entire medal run should you have to reload a checkpoint for whatever reason in a majority of missions. And that's not to mention how unintuitive and opaque most of the 'jectives are.

 

Big part of my initial disenchantment with the game on release... but with some patience and a little bit o' luck it's a lot more doable now they made it so you aren't limited to default stats and equipment. Truth be told, I'm not sure I could have ever done it without the patch... I did get a gold on the first try on the final story mission without a guide though, so there's that! Not at all my idea of a great time, but now, precious little stands in the way of my getting my own gleamin' platinum redemption as it applies to this game which I now love!

I was tedious playing through this game 3 times, but I gotta say it in many ways got easier with each playthrough. It was a tad more annoying because I felt the need to constantly stop and back up my saves, and there's a great irony that I was more worried about the regular enemies than I was the bosses.

 

I think I'll soon be ready for the MP trophies, and badabing badaboom!

BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle Platinum Trophy - 40-platinum.png Crossing Fate

Rare: 17.49%

 

First BlazBlue platinum and my 37th platinum on my profile

 

It was easier compared to the other fighting games I am playing on and off but it was still a joy to play. It is a very fun and polished fighting game that anyone interested should give a try. The crossover aspect was what hooked me with characters from RWBY and the Persona series that I recognise from the media I have enjoyed, making me more motivated to platinum it. It also made me interested in the Under Night franchise and it may be a game series I attempt to platinum in the future. 

 

Also, god bless Blitztank for not just being the weirdest character I have seen in a fighting game, making it one of the greatest characters in this game but also for having easier combo challenges compared to the other characters, helping me with the last trophy I needed.
