Trophy Thoughts

17 posts in this topic

What do you think about this game? I am glad that the game that came on Nintendo Switch came here, but the trophy list is really eh. Not even a platinum which is sad considering that the Switch version has DLC where you can play as Shantae or Shovel Knight.

How sad that this game doesn't have a plat but other smaller games do, I still not understand what is the requirements for a game to have a platinum trophy... It's the developer the one that request it?

That's stupid right?! The Mayo game has a platinum from just mashing a button, but others like Spelunky, which could potentially take like 100 hours to get every trophy, doesn't have one lol

 

My guess is that it is based on content. Some developers probably don't want people earning platinum trophies from easier shorter games. In other words maybe there are certain criteria games have to meet ( i.e difficulty, length of single player campaign, amount of trophies in general) for them to merit putting in a platinum trophy. Like if there are only 15 available trophies to earn in game A and there are 35 in game B, then game B gets a platinum cause it makes more sense. This answer is based on absolutely nothing, just my guess. Makes enough sense though.

From what I've seen, the current system allows developers to basically set their game as a normal game or a "small scope" game. Sony just accepts whichever they choose, so a game like My Name Is Mayo can be marked as a normal game without worry that Sony will deny them. If a game is marked as "small scope" these days, it means the developers don't understand the system. They don't know they're allowed to mark it as a normal game and get some more sales than they would with a "small scope" game.

No platinum is pretty disappointing, I agree with that; especially considering I ordered the PS4 Collectors Edition for both games from Limited Run Games.  I do enjoy getting platinums.

 

However...

Not playing the games because there is no platinum is pretty stupid though.  I hate this mentality.  But whatever floats your boat I guess 1f644.png 

This, the game it self looks fun.

The original was one of my favorites on the NES when I was like 6-7 =D  It was challenging for my age.  If you don't know Flare, Zero is based off the original and is basically the same game with just a few improvements, obviously graphics being one of them.  Zero 2 as far as I am aware of was their own attempt at creating a new entry to the franchise; however, they could have took elements from the original sequel(s).  That I am not 100% on though since I never got Zero 2.

 

If you plan on getting them, I hope you enjoy them.  I have to wait until I get my CE from Limited Run Games.  But I have already have at least Zero on my Switch for a couple years now so I am in no rush.

I am fine with no platinum as for some reason it does not effect my OCD. I ordered both from Limited Run.

Finished Zero on Switch. Played half of Zero 2. Both are a lot of fun! But I don't think I'll double-dip without a plat. Still might get the newest DLC for Zero 2 and finish on Switch.

If you enjoyed the classic, try Zero and if you enjoy that try Zero 2.

Ugh. The Destroyer Mode is a pain in the rear. Jason gets restricted on weaponry (enemies become invulnerable to the most of his arsenal) and SOPHIAIII gets a projectile retribution on every destroyed enemy. Not to mention more health on mutants in general. Not exactly enjoyable to say the least.

I intend to get a least the true ending (which means, get all the collectables and upgrades).
From what I saw, there's a trophy for defeating a boss with a certain weapon. Is this missable?

Technically, no.  Because the boss reappears in a later stage of the game.

Ok, so I finish the true ending, but... I realized I didn't get the normal ending trophy, only the true one.
Does that mean I need to replay to whole game, this time without getting all the upgrades, in order to get that trophy?
