@RogerRoger I wouldn't say that difficult, I actually had all the hunting grounds done shortly after first arriving at Meridian and that was probably the most difficult trophy but with end game armour I doubt it'd be too hard. My only tip would be very aggressive as the times limits are the only real obstacle and basically just ignore any machine that isn't part of the hunt. As for skills, you should be very close by the time you're level 50 and you get skill point rewards for completing the hunting grounds and some other side activities. I'll put it this way I maxed out the skills despite putting 9 points into the dlc skill tree but not actually completing a dlc quest and my last trophy was the main story one. Overall not too difficult and probably about on par with the Spiderman platinum

@carlos82 Awesome, thanks for the details! I think it was the timed element to the Hunting Grounds that did me in the first time; that, and I tried a difficult one first, quite early on in the game, and then just wrote them off and never returned. I think I might be in with a shot when I return.

@carlos82 @RogerRoger Yeah, the Hunting Grounds trophies turned me off to any pursuit of the Horizon ZD platinum. I’m not very good at timed trials. So I have a 72% completion on the game and I’m fine with that.

On a separate unrelated note, I finally finished platinum #20 and the 3rd for 2019 - Persona 3 Dancing in Moonlight. Clocked in at just over 14 hours. Less of a grind than the P4D platinum because with a little planning the final trophies are more about maxing combos and perfect notes, so they can be played on any song, which was nice to have the variety and not grind an easy song over and over like the last trophy for P4D.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

@RogerRoger I used some online vids to give pointers for some of them as they could be quite tough. I seem to remember you unlock some pretty good weapons if you do complete them all too?

@carlos82 The GoW collectibles were a bit of a pain as there was no easy way of knowing exactly which collectible/crow you had missed in an area. And as most areas were quite linear anyway, I ended up almost having to replay areas to get everything.

@Thrillho I've literally just finished God of War for the first time and am currently on 71% of the trophies. Seeing as my last 2 platinums are Horizon and Spiderman I many as well make it a hat trick of exclusives. Though I can see those crows and finding the last few artefacts to be a bit of a pain but I've completed Muspelheim and just need to do the Valkyries and that place with the mist. Might leave it for now to play a bit of Days Gone and have a rest but I cant wait for the sequel.

@carlos82 oh god, the misty place is so out of keeping with the rest of the game and is such a chore. It’s not so bad once you’ve got a bit of the gear but that was definitely the worst part of the game.

Those three games are all ones even I managed to platinum too!

—————————————————————

I’m currently trying to get the last few bits to get the Hollow Knight platinum and just have the “pantheons” to do which are runs of fighting bosses from the game back to back. There are rest points but die and it’s back to the beginning which can be as frustrating as you’d imagine..

@Th3solution My completion percentage for Horizon is somewhere around the same as yours. Anything above 60% is a value I tend to consider as "well-played" and so it's something I'm more than happy to live with for most games. There's just something about Horizon where I feel like I should get the platinum, if that makes sense?

@Thrillho Good tip, thanks. I think I'll end up doing that; whilst I try to avoid using YouTube, I'll admit to having done so once or twice (okay, thrice) for some of the specific challenges in Hitman 2 recently. I'm sure I'll find them easier with my post-game and post-DLC armour and weapons, too.

@Th3solution @RogerRoger I've got 75% completion for HZD, so quite chuffed with that as I too tend to veer away from any time based trials. I give em a go, but when it gets to a certain difficulty my anxiety gets the better of me and just move on to something else. I highly doubt if I ever go back to it either.

@carlos82 @RogerRoger @JohnnyShoulder @Thrillho I struggled with a particular time challenge, you blow up barrels on dinosaurs backs to then pickup something and another you had to lure dinosaurs near log traps. Both of them sucked big time. The first one because the minute you took down a dinosaur every dinosaur in the world knew about it and the area went crazy. The second because the dinosaurs didn't go anywhere near the log traps.

It drove me that mad I started calling all the robots dinosaurs. Even the none dinosaur one.

I'm on my way to platinum 42 with Burnout Paradise remastered. Unfortunately I've hit a glitch whilst trying to find every car park. No matter what I do and how often I visit them (I've checked a guide and video) it won't pop. So annoying. Once I'm done with the last licence I will wipe my save file to get the missing trophy

I know how I've done it too. By using a motorbike early doors and crashing the barriers away - one of the carparks won't register as found.

@themcnoisy Glitches with trophies preventing platinums are the worst, I've had a few games do it to me. One was Burnout Paradise Remastered as well with something not registering so I just gave up with it. I also had Fallout 4 glitch, not allowing me to get one of the endings so I also gave up with that too.

@themcnoisy yeah that's one of the early hunting grounds and I'd argue possibly the hardest or at least most frustrating. I had the same trouble first time and it kind of convinced me I wasn't going ot be able to do the others. At some point I returned and did it using the electric trip wires to stun them in place before releasing the logs but definitely tricky as the Grazers just run away from you. Pretty much every one after that is just combat based and with enemies that don't flee making them a fair bit easier and most I got full suns first time

@themcnoisy That was the specific one, the log-trap one. It's all coming back to me now. I tried repeatedly to get the flippin' robo-raptors near the traps and they just wouldn't go where I wanted them to. That's where I gave up and moved on, I remember now.

Sounds like @carlos82 had exactly the same experience, but actually bothered to go back and persevere with the others. Something I'll keep in mind for the replay!

I got the platinums in the Persona 3, Persona 4, and Persona 5 dancing games.

@johncalmc Sounds soul destroying. Without ever meeting you John one thing is for certain you have both persistence and the ability to see tasks through to the end.


Currently playing Pinball arcade which has a million Trophies it seems. The downside is they are mostly impossible. 0.1% is the norm for the vast majority.

Team Sonic Racing has failed to grab me this time. I'm quickly coming round to the idea of putting a big story driven game on to boost my trophy count.

@themcnoisy Honestly I really like the Persona music so it's not bad. The one for 4 is a bit much because it's got a full story mode. I preferred the other two with more dancing and then just some little vignettes for story.

@johncalmc I’m glad you enjoyed them. Yeah, the story mode in 4 does go on for a long stretch and I liked the more streamlined approach to 3 (haven’t played 5 yet but I assumed it’s a cut and paste of 3, which is fine by me). I just loved the characters in 4, including the new ones they brought in. Who would have thought pop idols would be all that interesting. And the dance instructor cracked me up. But yes, the story dragged a bit. Did you play on PS4 and if so how was it as far as any lag or timing issues?

@Th3solution I played all three on PS4 and I didn't really notice much lag but then I'm not much of a rhythm game expert or anything. If there was lag it certainly wasn't bad enough to stop me. And yeah 5 is very much just 3 again but with a different cast and different tunes.
