I'm mildly peeved at the trophy list for Team Sonic Racing this morning.

Stayed up late working my way through the lion's share of the list, got to 90% and took a peek at what was outstanding. Back on PS3, I remember Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed getting some flack for having a trophy which said "win a race with four local friends" (many people either didn't have that many friends, or weren't comfortable inviting people round, or simply didn't have four DualShocks). I thought, because of said flack, they wouldn't do it again.

But they have. There's a bronze (bronze!!) trophy for winning a Team Race with local friends; that's three people and three DualShocks in the same room, playing on the same console. I can't let people into my apartment (thanks, anxiety) but even if I could, all my friends are spread out across the country. And I only have two DualShocks.

So that's that. I'll forever have 90% trophies because I know I can't get the platinum. It's really frustrating, especially after working so hard to ace all those bloody Daredevil events!

@RogerRoger Are you able to borrow to dual shocks from someone? You can just choose their drivers etc and start the race, hopefully the trophy will then pop. Admittedly that is more effort than I would be willing to make for a trophy!

@JohnnyShoulder Unfortunately, the trophy requires your team to win a race, and I can't control three characters at once (I can barely control one as it is).

But thanks for the idea! You're right, though, it's too much effort for a trophy. It's not like I'm a serious platinum hunter; just would've been nice, I've only got one top Sonic gong (for Generations). I can live with 90% (especially since it's a higher percentage than most anyway).

@redd214 Hmm, no. Can't see how it would but, again, thanks for the idea! If there is a way to "cheat" the trophy, I'm sure a guide will put it about.

That being said, however, there's a local multiplayer trophy for Star Wars: Racer Revenge which I've been able to cheat for years, as it's only two-player and doesn't require any input on the second controller, but I haven't gotten it and subsequently gotten 100% trophies because it feels dishonest. So chances are I'll just have to live with it, which is okay... heck, I've lived this long without the one from All-Stars Racing Transformed.

I'm feeling better after having somewhere to vent about it. Cheers!

@RogerRoger from the FAQ

What is Share Play?

You can use Share Play to play with a friend as if you were in the same room. It allows you to invite a visitor to view your screen for up to 60 minutes a session. If you are stuck in a game or want the visitor to try a game, Share Play allows you to hand over your controller to a visitor so they can play instead. You can also invite your visitor to play a local multiplayer session over the internet even if the game does not support online multiplayer. The visitor does not need to own the game to use Share Play.

Now I've never used it myself but based on that description it seems it would help. However caps or at 2 people.

And looking at the trophy list I see a trophy for Completing a race with 3 people not winning it unless I am misunderstanding the trophy description. Based on this YT guide doesn't seem like winning is required.

@themcnoisy I thought you were not into those types of games these days?

@JohnnyShoulder since posting that yesterday my daughter kept me entertained until 10pm and my life is chocablock so it was a tad premature. We can all dream.

@redd214 Wow, thanks for doing all that research!

I'll keep it in mind, cheers. I do have a friend who has the game, and a friend who doesn't, so I'm sure there'd be a method in there somewhere. If I happen to inadvertently unlock the other trophies whilst I'm completing the last few Grand Prix races, and I'm on an odd percentage, I'll definitely give it a go.

Didn't know that about SharePlay either; I'd just been using it to stream Dragon Age to a curious friend, in hour-long chunks, as I didn't wanna make a Twitch account. Neat!

@RogerRoger @redd214
i can confirm that Shareplay works a treat!
I haven't used it in a good long while, but my mate who lives in Australia and had pretty crappy internet access was able to try out Driveclub over Shareplay from my PS4.

Also - could you 'cheat' the trophy at all - limited number of AI for instance so that a 1, 2 finish would take the win?

@RogerRoger hey man happy to help! I've been burned from getting a plat in the past for crazy mp requirements and know how frustrating it can be lol! Hope you get it worked out, you're so close!!

redd214

RogerRoger

@KALofKRYPTON Good to know!

As I said above, even if I could cheat the trophy, I don't think I'd want to (wretched morality). SharePlay is one thing, and a valid thing at that, but sitting down with two controllers on my lap, leaving a teammate at the start line for the whole race, would just feel wrong (and is why I don't have that trophy from Star Wars: Racer Revenge, because that's basically what you have to do for it if you're a loner).

You can't limit the number of drivers in a race, because it'd destroy the team mechanic. There are early story races with only two teams competing, but each team is still three racers.

@redd214 Ah, I sensed you had your own war stories!

If I manage to sort something out, I'll let you know. Thanks again!

@RogerRoger Ah...

I should have it delivered by the weekend and will probably see my daughter for a bit, who loved Transformed - so we may be able to help (though the weather is meant to be quite nice, so casually non-committal )

@KALofKRYPTON Kind of you, but father / daughter time takes priority!

And besides, I'm always away at weekends.

@RogerRoger No worries.

Now I think about it - I'm not entirely sure it would work anyway; or at least - how to get two remote players in to your session for a 'local' game...

I was looking at the trophies for the PS Plus games coming tomorrow and noticed Sonic Mania has a paltry few trophies. Only two silvers and no golds or platinum! That’s pretty lame.
Borderlands The Handsome Collection appears to have 2 platinums, but I’ll never have the dedication to get either one. Does anyone know if the trophy lists are shared with the PS3 list? Or do each of the two BL games have their own trophy lists in PS4? I have BL2 on PS3 and Vita, and they share a list. If I get to earn the trophies again, I might just start over on PS4, but I doubt the list is separate since supposedly you can port your character progress from PS3 over to PS4 from the cloud. That would break the trophy list, wouldn’t it? Anyway, anyone know first hand how trophies and character transfer work for the PS4 version?

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

@Th3solution the handsome collection trophy lists are indeed separate. If you import your character it does auto pop a number of trophies if I remember correctly.

@redd214 Really? Wow, I may have to try that then. Thanks!

Platinum #31: Lara Croft GO

This was an awesome game to play on the Vita, I really enjoyed the puzzles and tapping around on the screen in order to find treasure. It captured the feeling of the Tomb Raider series rather well. The Platinum was also really easy to acquire and most of the trophies were Gold, so I highly recommend playing this game if you want some easy trophies.
