I need to prepare for an exam right now, so I don't have that much time to play. I focused on Heavy Rain for now and am hoping to complete it this week. I'm going through my second playthrough right now and should be able to get the different endings fairly quickly. 

After my exam I'm going after the FF Type-0 Platinum. Hopefully I can get it done before the end of September.

Graveyard Keeper 14% -> 31%

My Time at Portia 18%

Darkest Dungeon 13%

No Man's Sky 11%

Unreleased:

Borderlands 3 0%

 

I managed to get some game time and got a bit further in Graveyard Keeper! I'm actually enjoying it a lot, but sometimes the crafting and "ability" system feels a bit over complicated. I have been playing some No Man's Sky too, but no trophies there! I am mostly just playing it chill right now and enjoying the game. Will see if I paus all the other games when Borderlands 3 is released or if I'll mix it up a bit.

 

Edit:

I still also kind of want to finish Borderlands 2 before starting the third, will see if I can manage that, I still got another 10 levels or so until I hit 50. I have most of the really annoying trophies out of the way though so might be able to.

Not as much gaming time as I would have wanted during this weekend but I did finish up Iconoclasts by completing its challenge mode run. I ended up enjoying this game way more than I initially thought. I guess I just didn't really know what to expect from it as it's not exactly a well-known title, if it wasn't for PS Plus I probably would have never even touched it, but I'm really glad that I did. I still can't quite get over the fact that this whole thing was created by Joakim Sandberg alone which proves he really is a man of all trades since everything from start to finish is really well done. Perhaps nothing too revolutionairy but I don't think I can say anything bad about it either. Story is good, gameplay is a lot of fun especially the bossfights and the soundtrack is simply amazing. If anyone would be interested in trying this one out then I'd say: definitely go for it!

 

As stated earlier, the last thing on the to-do list for this game was completing the challenge mode run which could often be extremely frustrating but a hell lot of fun at the same time as well. The regular playthrough wasn't all that bad in terms of difficulty, perhaps even a bit too forgiving at times but this challenge mode definitely made up for it! Some of the later bosses gave me a lot of trouble and even though they had checkpoints in between their phases, your hitpoints did not regenerate so I often had to redo the whole fight again anyway untill I made it to that last phase without getting hit earlier on. Even though I make this sound like it was a tedious task, I actually really enjoyed it. I've always loved this sort of learning curve when it comes to bossfights where you gradually improve on memorizing and dodging its moveset untill you finally manage to get that good run where you do the whole fight flawlessly. It also helps that most of the bosses are actually fun to fight and designed in a good way, challenging but always remaining fair to the player. Every death felt like it was my own personal fault and not because the game f****d me over which is something I can appreciate. Props to the developer for this once again!

 

Not sure what to play next, I will definitely continue R&C of course but I'll combine it with something else again, probably one of the Infamous games. I've also been testing out darksiders 3 and Wolfenstein: The new colossus to see if i enjoy them enough to put them on the list. Darksiders 3 is a lot of fun to play but I'm going to wait untill I get hold of all of the DLC's before adding it. Not sure about Wolfenstein, didn't really click for me yet, guess I'll have to play some more.

Second one down!

Didn't realize I was picking the R&C I'd seen so many complaints on, but I was lucky enough to get past My Blaster Runs Hot without hours of effort; also had zero trouble with the last boss on hard, but found my issues in the turret sections, extra boss (on casual, even), and puzzle bolts, along with a few of the enemy swarm areas. I don't remember having as many ammo issues in the others I've played.  :hmm:

Great story, though now I'm annoyed at myself for playing it before Tools of Destruction and Quest for Booty. May give it a quick replay after I get around to both.

Playing through "challenge" mode with a RYNO was ridiculously fun. Can't see what you're doing, but everything melts anyway!

 

Thinking Dragon Age next, but that may not work out with the storm rolling over.

Finished sequence 5 and most of sequence 6. Though not required for the :platinum:, been exploring every nook and cranny and grabbing all the collectibles and such. So that has slowed down my story progress. And yea, I know I'm playing it out of order, but who the hell cares? It's fun!

1. Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 3 (Releases 10/22/19) (0 out of probably 53 trophies)

9. Murdered: Soul Suspect (0 out of 49 trophies)

10. Monochrome Order (Release TBA) (0 out of 36 trophies)

 

76 out of 396 trophies earned so far, 3 out of 10 games completed.

 

Made a tiny bit of progress in Zero no Kiseki.  It's not an easy game for me to play since my ability to read Japanese is not great and I'm depending on a fan translation.  The main issue is that the guides for this game are all bad and have problems with them, which makes the game more frustrating than it needs to be since these games are riddled with lots of missables.  Luckily Ao no Kiseki has a very solid looking guide.  Hoping to finally finish my first playthrough of Zero no Kiseki soon and may end up taking a break and just going for the plat for Ao no Kiseki first

 

Also decided to add a game now that I know what the next Kemco release is going to be.

  11. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 0%

Currently progressing nicely through Yakuza 3. I chose to put a pause on the main story progression to get as much of the mini-game requirements for the Minigame Master trophy done - which is going to be a bit time consuming. So far I managed to knock out the Darts, Shogi and Karaoke minigame requirements. At the moment i'm trying to finish off Pool, I have one more opponent on Expert and i'm getting crushed by the Pool Rotation game mode. The AI is way too precise outside of 2-3 points where they miss. If you aren't perfect or very very lucky in those windows, you've lost.

 

Borderlands 3 is coming up very soon, so I'm aiming to get the Pool stuff done over the next couple of evenings. Then i'm pausing Yakuza 3 for some rootin' tootin' lootin' shootin'.

No real update from me as I can't seem to find time to play at the minute among exams and family etc. I just thought I would add my 1% on Far Cry 5 in just to let you all know I am thinking about you 😂

 

Good luck on your exams!!! And thanks for thinking about me xD

Update Tuesday :

 

1. Devil May Cry (PS3) - 14% -> 54%

2. Devil May Cry 3 (PS3) - 1%

3. One Piece : Pirate Warriors 2 (PS3) - 11%

9. Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (PS3) - 5% -> 10%  -> 25%

10. J-Stars Victory VS+ ( PS3 NEW) - 22%

 

Did quite some progress on Call of Juarez Bound in Blood. Close to the 1 million $ mark (last trophy in multiplayer mode). I will miss this beautiful multiplayer but ohwell time for single player!

Minor improvement over Deadpool. Game is too random , I will rush for the trophies. Ultra Hard will kick my ass for sure. I...am not enjoying this game as I initially expected, it kinda sucks xD And Deadpool's antics become tiresome honestly at a point.

Added a new game to the list : J-Stars Victory VS+ , basically the grandpa of Jump Force. IDK how I missed this one in my backlog but it's time to platinum and get rid of it. I remember it being slightly boring though so... I'll see what to do with this game.

I've been up all night with Realm of Magic for the Sims 4, really cool game pack. You get to pretend to be Harry Potter. Speaking of which, I finally ran through all of the story mode in LEGO Harry Potter for Vita (there is only 5-7, they didn't port 1-4 to the Vita which really ruins it) and cleared one dueling circle. My goal is to get all the red bricks, then get all of the remaining collectibles with the collectible finder. I miss two items in the final level so I will have to go through all of those stupid duels AGAIN a third time. :(

 

On PS4 I will probably start Enigmatis 2 after a three hour nap once I put my short ribs in the slow cooker. I've been up all night playing Sims 4.

I know I fell off the map during the Summer Backlog Challenge but I'd like to give this a try. I probably won't be updating much this month as I am just getting used to going back to school but I definitely want to finish some games from my backlog because as mentioned in the first post, there are a ton of good games coming out this Fall.

 

1. Sly 2: Band of Thieves (PS3)  - 34%

2. Tales from the Borderlands (PS3) - 28%

3. A Plague Tale: Innocence - 14%

4. Grim Fandango Remastered - 6%

5. A Way Out - 0%

 

This is my initial list. Going to wait until Borderlands 3 releases to decide if I'll add it. Same with Death Stranding. I am almost definitely going to add Control but I am waiting until it's on sale (around Black Friday perhaps) to pick it up since its a fairly short game from what I've read.

82 out of 396 trophies earned so far, 3 out of 10 games completed.

 

Finally beat Zero no Kiseki and amazingly enough didn't lose out on the 1st rank investigator trophy despite the crappy guides, though that is only because this game gives far more leeway than other games in the series where you can miss up to 12 points and still get it, I missed 10.  That will make my next playthroughs a lot easier since I won't have to worry about covering every quest.  I'm going to go ahead and try to wipe out the low level speedrun and then probably will move on to another game for a break before doing the nightmare run.

I made a bit of progress in FF8 but I'll wait till I knock out a few more trophies tonight to post a more substantial update. One thing to note, however, is that I realized if I continue down the path I'm going and finish up FF8, it will not only be my 41st platinum, but it will be my 4000th trophy as well! 

 

On the topic of FF8, I can't believe that I missed out of drawing Leviathan! Thank God you can pick them up from the bosses late disc 4, I'd be a bit grumpy if I had to start another playthrough for a GF I don't plan on summoning. Just got the ragnarok so I should be able to make relatively quick work of everything from this point on out.
