Cool. Thanks for the support. Yeah, make it public this year and let me know. Love to check it out and support. Maybe we can even hook up on some MP game.

I got my first trophy guide written and published. It is for Dungeons II. See below for the link as well as above in my original post stating my goals for the year. I am off to a decent start. Working on some games I have already started (FFIX and FFX-2) for a Platinum that is almost earned with FF9 and boosting my completion rating with X-2.

I was able to get my second Platinum trophy for the year and was able to get it in FEB. I had to resort to a cheap trick with Gem Smashers as it is a very short game and I was able to Plat it in about 4.5 hours. No bronze trophies and there was a great amount of gold trophies (8 of them) to help with my level boosting goal, gold point total over my silver point total (they are tied and I didn't even plan it!!! Lol) as well as just plain old numbers. Great game for my Trophy Goals purposes and that was one of the reasons I bought it but it was not a game I enjoyed. Looks fun but the controls are not friendly and despite playing with all three characters and beating the game with one (as required for trophies) I never could get used to how your little animal avatar responded to the environment or my inputs. I was hoping it would have replay value but as soon as the Platinum 'POPPED', I closed the game, deleted all screen captures, save files, and the game itself.

Alright! Started off strong in March, getting my Platinum early and finishing off a game that has been in my backlog since February 2016!!! Yikes. Lol. However, FFX-2 wasn't a bad game, I just struggled with gunner's gauntlet and so I put the game down, next thing I know I forgot about it and it's low 6% percentage haunted me and my stats, so I figured with my trophy goals this year it was a perfect game to get back into and achieve 100% in and I am glad I did. I like Final Fantasy, it will always be the Number One Series in gaming though they will make crap games (looking at you 8 & 15) but I will never turn my back on them. This helps me be 3/3 for the month portion of my goals and helps me out with getting either two Platinums this month or in April. Still haven't found a good trophy competition I want to enter yet and I need to write a second guide but I am tracking along and am slightly ahead. If I can keep the press on, I should be able to accomplish every single one of my goals for the year.

Well, it is April now. I am still pushing forward but starting to worry that 20 Platinum trophies for the year might be a bit much. Hard playing two games in a month to get Platinum trophies. I know others do it and I could clean up my personal schedule some but I enjoy my Friday night karaoke and the past couple of Saturdays, just been a little drain with video games. I think the big reason for that is the two games I am playing right now, Thief and Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms, are very grindy and time-consuming. Hope to make a big push on Thief this week and Platinum the game. That will really free my mind up and allow me to find the next game to begin prepping for May as I keep working on Idle Champs.

Got my fourth Platinum trophy of the year, Conan Exiles. A very quick Platinum when you work with others online. You can make it even easier using the Admin function and control your server or you can play solo and make it very hard and slow. First survival, build game and while the game is buggy and needed some patches, it is not a bad game. I am slowly building a fortress on two islands in the middle of the big river in the game. This game also gave me first Platinum 'C' game trophy as part of a little event called A-Z Platinum Club 2.0. Whole idea is to beat a game for each letter of the alphabet and earn a Platinum. This game gave me my 13th different letter (13 Letters out of 34 Platinums, yikes!!!) and helps me out to get a second Platinum this month, which I really need if I am going to get my 20 Platinums for the year, got to start doubling-up (or even triple!) to make my goal.

Glad you did Dragon Sinker. What did you think of it? I think it was okay until you had to get the Enah's Pal trophy, that took a lot of work to get the stats for it. May I recommend Bonds of the Skies next? It's a great game by the same company.

Dragon Sinker was fun. It was a nostalgic RPG that for me personally I wish the graphics were more than 8-Bit. I know for a lot of people the 8-Bit look is part of the charm and nostalgia of playing the game but I personally want the game to be a bit more in the graphic department. The game itself was fun, had challenging moments, couple of decent puzzles, and a worthwhile story. Enah's Pal trophy did take some work but I had read about that trophy before I started so I worked towards the goal from the beginning, kept my human leader in the party all the time, leveled up to 99, gave him all the job scrolls. It took me two tries.

 

I have not heard of Bonds of Skies but I will look into, thank you for the recommendation.

Earned two Platinums this month (April) for the first time during my trophy goal hunt for the year (but not my Trophy Hunting career). The second Plat was Peasant Knight. A 2D platform jumper game that is actually a little challenging especially when you look the trophy list as well as completion time. I was doing alright, not super fast but was making good progress but then the skeleton boss (Level 29) just grinded me to a complete halt. I spent over an hour trying to pass the stage. Gave up on for the night, came back to it the next day and got it within a half a dozen tries. Some stages after that had some moments but nothing like Level 29. Took me about hour to get the last portion but a fun game. Still a decent game, has play time after earning the Plat. I bought it for $3.25, got a decent amount of trophies with 17 but 9 of them were Gold which really boosted my level percentage as I am now within striking distance of Level 18, and further increases my Gold trophy point total over Silver.

 

So digging into Trophy Hunting career, I have earned two Platinums in a month 6 previous times (April 2015 with Platinum #5 Dragon Age: Inquisition [first PS4 Platinum] and Platinum #6 Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, then April 2017 with Platinum #13 with The Order: 1866 and Platinum #14 Overlord: Fellowship of Evil, then May 2017 with Platinum #15 Gauntlet and Platinum #16 Rebel Galaxy, then August 2018 with Platinum #23 Evolve and Platinum #24 Hardware: Rivals, then September 2018 with Platinum #25 Helldivers and Platinum #26 Spider-Man, and then finally in December 2018 with Platinum #29 Final Fantasy XV and Platinum #30 Dungeons II).

I earned three Platinums in one month for the first time with Queen's Quest 2: Stories of Forgotten Past. Another very simple game with easy Platinum and no real replay value but the puzzles were fun, especially when I challenged myself to solve them without using guides. I have sort of water downed my profile this month's with my last three Platinums. Wasn't intentional. Conan was a free game, I was intrigued by it when it released, and do find the game to be enjoyable though the community is not there and it does have some bug issues. Peasant is fun, a different kind of platform jumper, and has value beyond the Platinum. However, all three games served another purpose beyond helping me with all my trophy goals. They all helped me get a Platinum for a game starting with 'C', 'P', and 'Q', which I needed for a forum club called A-Z Platinum Club. The idea of the club is you earn a Platinum from a game that starts with each letter from the Alphabet as well as a Number. With the completion of these three games, I now have 15 letters with a Platinum, so my other 21 Plats are duplicates. As I work on my own trophy goals, any game that I can play that will assist me in the A-Z Platinum Club will most definitely have a serious look if I am to play it or not. Got to get back into cleaning up my back log with Thief (all the grinding trophies really throw me off that game, need to finish it. Might make it my May Platinum, though I am chugging along in Idle Champions (another game needed for the A-Z Platinum Club) so it could be my May Plat, and I will push Thief out to June) and probably going to pull FFXII to the front lines and clean it up some too but those damn concurrences for the Mist Walker trophy are such a pain!

My May trophy fit into my A-Z Platinum Club I am working on with Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story. A super fun game, that I got cheap during one of the past sales. I was happy to get a 'V' game for cheap but the real pleasure was in the game itself. A very fun RPG that had some unique twists with the building of the Academy your adventurers use as a base of operations. There is some pressure keeping up with the demand of graduating a student every 6 months and having to graduate a total of 50 for a trophy but it is this addition to the game that makes it a challenge. The story is great, the art is simple yet clean, and not every fight is walk through the park. Joy to play. Joy to Plat.

 

EDIT: I didn't give this post and by extension, the game, the credit it deserves. Valthirian is a very simple RPG but it is this simplicity that drove it home to be a great game. Visually it is cartoonish but it was beautifully drawn. The maps for battle are simple and repeated regularly with some twist like boulders blocking paths that they didn't the last time you played but there is still some exploration to make sure you find every item and kill every monster. You don't get 100% control of the Academy you build but you chose where your upgrades go and how many you have to increase the stats you believe are important. There are three Tiers of classes with Tier 1 having only one class, Tier 2 is an upgrade that gives you three classes, and Tier 3 gives you two upgrades for each Tier 2 option for a total of 6 Tier 3 classes. Each class plays very differently and brings their own uniqueness to battles. A great addition to my video game collection, the game has replay value, trophies are well thought out, trophy design is enjoyable, and helped with my 2019 Trophy Goals and my A-Z Platinum Club membership. I highly recommend buying the game if you like RPGs.

Got another Platinum this month with A Plague Tale: Innocence. This game is the newest game on my list having come out earlier this month. It is beautifully designed, voice acted, and the gameplay is smooth and enjoyable. Glad I was able to get another Plat for the month. The gameplay style of Innocence is different for me and what I normally play/like but I enjoyed playing the game. I'm marching down the line and heading towards my Trophy Goals.

 

However, with that said about the game: SPOILERS AHEAD

Spoiler

 

1. The ability to magically control rats like your a damn fucking Ratbender from Avatar ABSOLUTELY ruined the game. Story ruined. Gameplay ruined. Just all of it fucking stupid and ruined.

2. Crazy rat tornadoes that attack fires was damn weird. This is based off the first point but it was acceptable until Ratbending was invited.

3. Two companions die. I get that, it's more realistic that way. Drama. Emotional spikes and heartache. The way they died, however, was crap. One because he decided to lift a boulder that was way too heavy for him instead of the sword that was right fucking there. The second companion dies in a noble sacrifice but I successfully killed every damn soldier and archer on that pathway and then at the end he just magically has arrows in him.

My June Platinum and my 9th Platinum of the year is Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. The game is very beautiful, great music, long and enriched story with many choices that have great rewards and consequences. Part of The Witcher series story though I don't know it as I have never played a Witcher game before but do have Witcher 3 on my list to play, just not sure if it will be this year for my trophy goals or not. Thronebreaker is a card game. If you like the Witcher series and want to know more of the story, this game is a great addition because even someone with no knowledge of the world saw hints in it about characters and places that the series deals with in other games. The only let down was how the card game itself played. It had a unique twist, you couldn't attack your opponents unless through special abilities. The point was just to have a bigger force than them in a best two out of three fight. It made the fight a lot longer then they had to be and prevented the game from being as fun as it looked to be in trailers and other videos online.
