STAY HOME and #PLATINUMWITHME

469 posts in this topic

After thinking long and hard about it, I have decided that my personal end date for this event will be June 1st. I always have a hard time sticking to lists and I'm getting burnt out a little. I kind of want to do the summer backlog challenge, but it's more likely that I will just casually pick games I want to play while sitting around waiting for work to trickle in. Thanks to the host for setting this event up, and I think I got enough points for the gold badge but I might be wrong about that.

Finished up the speedrun in Nier and got the plat!  It's also my 150th plat as well.  Actually took a lot less time than I thought, it was more like around 10 hours when you have to do it under 15 hours.  I even goofed off a bit and did some grinding so I'd be at a more decent level and did a few quests to raise enough money to get the best weapon in the game.  Only hard part was the boss at the end of the first act because for one phase of it you have to knock out about a third of its HP meter before it can reach a certain location and on a speedrun you do so little damage that if you mess up even the slightest here, it's game over.  Thankfully a game over just put you back to the last checkpoint with full health so with bosses you start at the beginning of whatever phase you reached in case you do screw up so it just took a lot of tries to ensure I got the perfect timing and barely defeat that shit-hog as Kaine so kindly put it.  After that, the rest was easy.

according to the guide but forgot that that number is for better players than me, i think it means if you have played this game before and know exactly what you are doing you could complete in this time frame. However I'm not to far off so I will get it next week.

 

 

I understand you SO MUCH ! Guides sometime tends to be... Off with the time they suggest. I always add a good ten hours whenever i start a game. 

And i dont see myself as a noob, i have 69 plat on this account and 30 on another and a few challenging ones as well. 

 

I can only think of two reasons why writers would underappreciate times on guides.. 1- They are insanely OP or... 2-it helps their egos when People on the internet cant do better than what they wrote    They forget that games are meant to have fun and we take the time to enjoy them.

Oh thanks! :D I am glad you set your own personal deadline. I don't want people to be burned out on an event. With people going back to work commutes (now that more info on The Virus is trickling in and precursors are taken to ensure people don't get sick - we'll probably be wearing masks outside of the house for many many months :() I know a few people will go back to their casual free gaming time of two hours or so a day so you do you. ;)

 

Thanks for the thanks. I tried to make sure this event was fun but doable. Also, if you are unsure of your score or standing, Kristycism's table should have all of your information so you can calculate it yourself. ;)

Uh huh, preach it! I had my doubts about playing Kingdom Hearts III with the DLC's EZ Codes, but they made the trophies go by. For the record, after walloping several early bosses with Deadly Blow, I took it off for the final battles and it was more exciting and suitable. The thought of [spoiler final boss] going down in one hit is silly. :P

 

Thanks to those EZ codes, I managed to go from 0% to 91% trophy completion in KH3 in 20 hours. I just have to grind Sora to max level which will probably be done as I gather the materials for those last synthesis recipes, and gather a lot of bananas to make dessert for Little Chef because I failed the banana souffle six times. I want to know - should I just enable the Chef code and cheese those two recipes? I don't know if that would disable the Master Chef trophy as I heard that if you cook a dish you haven't learned with the code on, it automatically teaches it and you get the Excellent for it. I want to try to get the last two desserts legit but if I fail the egg game again I am going to just nope out of that. The egg minigame is the worst.

 

Bytheby, did you know that Sora's voice in all three games was Haley Joel Osment, who surprisingly was the little kid in "The Sixth Sense", a movie I saw years ago in theaters. It was about a kid who could see ghosts of the dead. How that little kid who acted like a scared six year old played Sora was amazing and his voice changed the character in the games. :)

Aight, I'm gonna say something, so it won't look like I've given up on this contest. My console has been broken since 3 weeks ago (wasn't reading any discs) and I've sent it to repair, yesterday it came back, but now I couldn't even put discs inside, so I returned it, and maybe it'll be back before the weekend.

 

So, I guess I can make my list better to look at

 

#COOKWITHME: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (0/76, still have to buy)

#DANCESINGWITHME: LEGO The Movie (0/49, still have to buy)

My update after being away for some weeks. 

 

340?cb=20110614221032

I got the platinum for inFamous 2, unfortunately the PS Now version of the game has some game breaking bugs (for example you can't choose certain options that lock you from getting some trophies) thankfully if you have a 2nd controller you can void all this problems by switching controllers when the game asks you to choose your path. Overall good game, the villain was meh, I really didn't liked his powers or the character but the ending paid it off.

Ouch! Sorry to hear your PS4 is busted! I hope you can get one running soon, I know it sucks not being able to game. :(

 

Also, to maiathewinners, congrats on the plat! :)

Persona 5 Royal finally done! Took me awhile since I took quite a few breaks but now it's done & my god was the new content absolutely amazing! Probably going to take a break for a little bit from getting platinums since Phantasy Star Online 2 comes out tomorrow on PC & I've been waiting for the game to release to NA since 2012. I'm half way through this list now though, so I think a break is in order anyway! I'll see you all again once I get a new platinum!

I got another game completed, atleast there wasn't a big gap between this one and the last one 😅. 

 

1L9becb8.png

Wizards Tourney is a Mario Party style of game where you take part on various minigame such as, building towers, collecting orbs, and cooking. 

 

I have to say this game has very little to do about magic and Wizards, it seems like they ran out of ideas for wizards minigame right on the first one and decided to go with whatever they had in their minds, there's a minigame that's more about the future then magic itself. 

 

The journey for the platinum is short but repetitive, you have to play each minigame 50 times and there's 7 of them, so be ready to lose some hours completing the same thing over and over again, if the minigames were fun this would go in a flash but they are not and they take some time to complete (looking at you pupkim minigame). 

 

Now I'm getting ready to tackle Resident Evil 3 which will also be my 100th platinum

Oh my goodness, seriously? I knew that the rest of the games on this list would take more than two days to complete but this was nuts! I lost the last update so I ended up with the original list I posted when I started up the event, which meant I had to re-edit it. *sigh* :(

 

First, congrats to @ObsiEez for platting P5R! I am a bit iffy about Persona 5. I did playing Persona 4 Golden but I need a lot of motivation to go into Persona 5's universe considering that I don't really like time management games. The reason Persona 4 Golden worked was because it had a dialogue fast-forward option. *shrug* Maybe in a year or so when everything else dries up. I'm glad you enjoyed the game though, Obsi. :)

 

Also congrats to @maiathewinners for another game done!

 

And now I've joined the ranks by getting the KH3 plat. I had a few struggles with the cooking(which is why it's in #COOK) and I wanted to feed Rem-- I mean, LITTLE CHEF to my cat after Sora kept flubbing the egg cracking. I had to reload my save a lot because I wasn't going to go back to those stupid Flans to get more grapes and bananas! 😡😫

 

But I got the final trophy, made that tart of fruits and deleted the game. I might upload my save to a USB if I decide to commit and get the DLC trophies, as I already earned three of the EZ merits(all battle challenges, that Sky Walker is going to be a pain!) but the rehash Data Org fights are going to be a nightmare for me as I prefer to button-mash through combat. :o

 

Anyways, I am going to cook dinner(I'm two hours behind meals :() and then take a nap before I do Dragon Quest Builders 2 for my #120. KH3 is #115. (Actually, I need to do four more games before I can get to #120... *yawn*)

P5 is a lot easier plat than P4G was.  There's a really solid guide on here to get everything maxed out in one playthrough and to quickly get the second playthrough stuff.  Even if you mess up, P5 has a ton of leeway on social links and the other miscellaneous trophies unlike P4G where the timing on being able to wrap everything up is down to the wire.  I think it also does have a fast forward option, but I really found the story much more interesting than P4G's.

Yeah, I know that. I know Persona 5 Royal has less trophies so it's not as difficult to platinum and you can even do it without having to go to a New Game+. I just need some more time. Also, I have a lot of games to get through and the next Shantae came is going to be coming out on PSN soon and I want to try it out. However, I know my lessons well and will wait for the trophy list. I expect I have to do another 100% speedrun, as that was the norm for Shantae games. If the other trophies are a pain in the keister, I'll look to it for the Switch instead. 😕

@Upendo_Vitani Well done on finishing up and good luck in the summer backlog.

 

@ladynadiad Awesome to get your 150th plat, that's amazing.

Thank you for sharing my frustration, I always question if its me, that I'm just to slow or bad at gaming, but they always feel quite off. It does feel like people saying this is the fastest it can be done when I feel it should be more of an average, or maybe both a quickest time and an average, would be more helpful to more people.

 

Well done @DoctorDrPepper for completing half the games!

I hope you get your console sorted soon @Varhur.

And well done to everyone who has completed games this week!

You're definitely not alone when it comes to guides.  The worst is guides for VNs.  Almost always they give a time that involves skipping all text rather than only skipping read text.  While yeah I get that is the fastest way to get a plat, it also defeats the purpose of playing a VN if you aren't going to read any of the story.  VN guides nearly always have times that are way off if you want to play the game as it is intended to be played.
