@KALofKRYPTON Congrats! That is not a small feat.

@JohnnyShoulder Thanks! I am having fun chasing the monsters an secret areas - the Crows could be a bit problematic...

@Feena Not me, my mate - I have no such notions!

@Feena Good luck and hope you have fun!

I did look at a guide for a few of the crows. A quick tip: some of em are in the arena you fight the Valkyries in.

@JohnnyShoulder The two realm trophies and the 8 'V's' are a grind and not something I really can say I enjoyed, as are the treasure maps and ravens too. The majority though were attainable by just playing the game and doing all the side quests. I still got the platinum though but the last grindy ones really stopped me wanting to play the game again, get all the armours etc so haven't touched it since 25th April - the day I got the Platinum - 5 days after launch

A pessimist is just an optimist with experience!

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

Feel free to add me but please send a message so I know where you know me from...

@Feena The God of War platinum didn't overstay its welcome too much for me, I enjoyed it, but the fast travel made some of the collectibles a bit of a faff. Also, the final 'creature' gave me trouble...

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Gremio108 I am trying to re-export the areas or reach the points on the map without using fast travel...it really makes things boring. I am already having troubles with the regular "creatures"! @JohnnyShoulder thanks for the tip! I'll try to get this plat

@BAMozzy Like I said I only found Niflheim a tad grindy and even then I still enjoyed it. Mind you it took me a lot longer to complete the game and I varied up all the stuff I had to do after I finished the story.

@Feena If you are finding it boring not using fast travel, why don't you just use fast travel?

Have you unlocked all the moves and runic abilities? That will life much easier in defeating the regular enemies.

@JohnnyShoulder I did all the side quests etc before I finished the story. I found Muspelheim grindy too as it is 'just' combat in one arena after another after another. The only real difference between that and Niflheim was the more random nature of the combat and 'gas' but still its the same 'combat' loop over and over again in areas that look virtually identical. I almost didn't bother with the Platinum because of those two realms but as they were just repetitive 'grinding' rather than actually having to do something (like beat the whole game a 2nd time on NG+ or rush through it under 5hrs or something stupid like that),I persevered. Fast travel was hardly 'fast' either - hiding a loading screen behind that 'tree' sequence is still a loading screen and gets tedious if you are jumping from 1 place to the next just to collect a missing raven or two. The only things I didn't do/unlock/upgrade were to craft ALL the armour pieces and runic moves - especially those that relied on the stuff you get in Nilfheim as I couldn't face more grinding...

Haven't had a badass plat for a while. Some of my favourites are hunting down the From Software ones such as Bloodborne, Dark Souls, Armored Core, etc.

Their next big game being single player only, will be interesting to see how I get on.
Hopefully the publisher doesn't interfere too much.

@LieutenantFatman Miyuzaki has confirmed From has editorial and directive control over the game and the game's contents. From have asked Activison in some guidance in how to make it a bit more accessible such as putting in a proper tutorial in the game, but overall Activision are leaving From to their own devices.

I feel dirty for buying the few outstanding trophies I had in Nier but the temptation to press one button to get the "all endings trophy" rather than grind through obtaining and levelling all weapons was just too great.

I finally, finally got the Dirt 4 platinum. Got to the end of the last event that I needed to do and the platinum didn't pop. Then I realised I hadn't done the tutorial, so I had to go back to driving school.

I'd just been winning every event under the sun and now here I was weaving through cones at 10mph. It was very demeaning.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

Plat #50 The Division. Great game I wish I would have picked it up sooner. Will get D2 day one.

@JohnnyShoulder Noo, I don’t want a more proper tutorial in a From game. Heck, go back to King’s Field, the predecessor to Dark/Demon Souls on the PS2. It’s first person and the first thing you do in the game is step onto a lava pit you didn’t realize was there. It needs opening that just kills you lol. On a more serious note though, I felt like Bloodborne had enough of a tutorial honestly.

@Splat Congrats! I just got my 4000th trophy.
I made it a good one though, with platinum #23 InFamous Second Son.
I absolutely did not strategically pop that trophy .

Playing SOTC again on PS4 and for once I think the trophies (beside my addiction) actually add to the game with rewards for clearing the time trials - finding some easter eggs and so on - I was worried cause i loved TLG but the trophies were really not complementary to that game.

Yeah, after I got it I was like man I should have tried to make that a Plat. Too later now...
