Yen's Pop('d) Plats

Okay, it's finally done! Probably only going to update when I finish a game, hit a milestone, or finish a DLC. I made this to replace a list I already had going for myself, so I hope to use it as a catch-all place for my trophy related accomplishments and events that I'm participating in! If anyone has any questions about games that I've played, I'll be writing little blurbs as I finish games but I wanted to keep them out of the OP just in the name of not bogging it down more than it already is 😅

 

Right now, I'm working on:

S701135.png Oh...Sir! The Insult Simulator 73% complete. It hasn't been too much of a slog so far, but I know now that I've gotten some of the easier/more common RNG phrases out of the way, I know that this is where the grind begins, especially for the infamous Say No More trophy. Hopefully if and when I do finish it, I won't hate anyone who is interested in photography!

Sf7217d.png Middle-earth: Shadow of War 9% complete. I didn't play it at all when all that loot box craziness was around it, and now playing it without those elements in the game I haven't really felt like the progression system is unfair - so far anyway. So far I like it a lot more than Shadow of Mordor for the simple fact that a lot of the movements and commands feel better and actually feel like they work. I haven't yelled about Talian nearly as much as I did in the first game, that's for sure!

Guacamelee 2 any harder than the first game?

 

Not a bad list at all.

Thanks!

 

And I wouldn't say it's much harder but I would definitely recommend doing the Hard Mode run and 100% run in seperate playthroughs. There were a handful of collectible sections that would have been easier on normal and that could have been avoided all together on hard.

Kingdom Hearts III :platinum: Complete Master

February 19, 2019

 

Well then! After getting almost no games done because I was waiting for it, Kingdom Hearts III finally came out and I finally got a platinum in my favorite game series! I've played the main entries multiple times, and I've attempted and failed to platinum Kingdom Hearts games in the past - and to be honest, I had already accepted that I wouldn't in this one either - but this time I've done it. Probably helps that other than a little RNG there's not really too much difficulty to it. We'll see if they add a NG+/difficulty trophy if they end up adding DLC to the game, but until then I feel pretty freakin' victorious. 

 

S701135.png I have made just a little progress on this pig of a game, leaving me with just one last trophy but unfortunately it's the dreaded Say No More ("Your wife is interested in photography, nudge nudge!"). I'm not just dedicated I am bloody determined to get this platinum. It's gotten personal now. I hope that it doesn't take me 10000 years but even if it does I will persevere!

Oh...Sir! The Insult Simulator :platinum: Platinum

 

I AM SCREAMING. You don't have to go too far to hear the trophy hunter horror stories about this particular gem, thanks in no small part to the atrocious RNG. The game itself is not hard - you 'duel' the computer in insult contests and try to put words together to wear down their health bar first. The trophies are mostly hitting milestones - like participating in 100 duels, using Satan in an insult 66 times, etc - and then putting together certain phrases. NOW. A lot of the phrases you can get fairly easily, like "Your mother was a hamster", "Your mother is your father", you get the picture. But then there was the trophy Say No More. "Your mother is interested in photography, nudge nudge!". I thought, well, it was broken before but the developers came out and patched it, it's probably just rare because people never went back right? Wrong. Oh, so wrong. Even with the patch, even with the obscure hint from the developers on Twitter, EVEN WITH everyone sharing their experiences and how they laboriously earned their own hard-fought platinum trophy, it still took me more than a month of playing about an hour a day to even ever come close. Today when I sat down with it I promised myself I would only waste an hour of my time, since so much of my time had been squandered on it already, and when the elusive 'nudge nudge!' came up I literally screamed. My trophies popped and I deleted it from my hard drive immediately. As of right now, PSNP is doing maintenance so I can't update my profile yet, but I'm not waiting. I'm taking my victory lap. 

 

🙌 Thank you Video Game Gods.

 

0/10 would not recommend.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War :platinum: The Bright Lord

March 1, 2019

 

Well I officially finished it and I can say definitively that without all the loot box/micro-transaction nonsense Monolith did a really good job rebalancing the game, especially the Shadow Wars end game section with the various seizing of and defending of forts - where it used to be ten rounds, now it's only three! And thankfully, there wasn't a resurgence of the 'get x level relic' BS from the first game. Even the hardest trophies had cheese-y work arounds and, despite taking a break for Kingdom Hearts III, it really didn't overstay it's welcome at all. Don't know that I necessarily recommend playing both games so close together, but if they came out with a third I wouldn't be too mad. I'm even thinking of adding the DLC to my ever-expanding DLC backlog 😅 as if I needed one backlog, let alone two. Ah well, thank goodness for Community Challenges!

Burly Men At Sea :platinum: Ye've Done It

April 12, 2019

 

Oof, been awhile since I got any Platinums, but I've made headway on a few games just not anything significant. So I did this free one! Why not? Also because it fit into the categories I needed for Community Events so, it works on a lot of levels. It was fine? It wasn't amazing or ground breaking. Some of the sound effects being made by mouth where interesting and it was interesting seeing all the ways it could go but other than that it was just... Fine? Eh. 

 

Sc6ccb6.png One I completely gave up on was The Witness. My mistake was hubris at the end of the day. I used a guide too much and didn't learn the different types of puzzles well enough to be able to finish the last challenge and I have no one to blame but myself. I could replay the game to get to that point, but why? I still won't learn them because it's too much like math homework - I know answers are in the back of the book, and I can't help but take a peak. Also, I could Share Play it but that just feels like extra cheating.

I feel for you. The Witness's secret challenge is RNG nightmare fuel. I enjoyed the game until that point. :(

 

Check out my trophy checklist and comment!

2064: Read Only Memories :platinum: Plasteel and Silica

April 16, 2019

 

Well it's finally over. After three full playthroughs, with an extra thanks to glitches, and five times through the awful 'final fight' portion, and multiple hours wrestling with the controls during the arcade game and robot fights, it's finally over. I do absolutely recommend a few things: 1) Don't play it on the Vita because every glitch I ran into happened on the vita,  including having to replay the whole thing again for one trophy; 2) Threat Neutralized is so much easier with the touch pad than the D Pad. I really did enjoy this game but I have a hard time recommending it if you didn't get it free through PS+ and really love point and click games. The music, the art, and the voice acting were sublime though - especially the Jim Sterling cameo! All in all, I'm glad it's over but I enjoyed (most) of the ride.
