@Th3solution Yeah. Just wait until you play V3 and it asks you to S-rank the arcade games on "mean" difficulty.

It's called "mean" for a reason.

Upupupupupupupupu~

All of the other trophies are basically just down to grinding, though. I guess, in a sense, even these skill-based ones are down to grinding in the sense that if you throw yourself at them hundreds of times, you EVENTUALLY get them. I'll be seeing Treasure Hunter! Monolith in my nightmares for years to come, though.

Imagine playing a tedious puzzle game where you have to break colored blocks in groups hundreds of times over the course of, like, 2 weeks.

And then imagine listening to this music when you do...

I eventually got it, though. When I finally platinum this, it'll be my "proudest" one, I think.

@Ralizah Ha, ha! I kept waiting for the music there to change, but it’s the same little tune over and over. I’m sure you’re hearing that in your head all day long now. 😂
Well, thanks for the fair warning. I probably will just play the game like I played D2 — try to get the most out of it and all the trophies that come with delving into the game naturally and then save the grinding for later when/if I ever want to go back to it.

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

@Th3solution Putting aside the evil arcade game trophies, the grindy trophies mostly involve really involved bonus modes. There's nothing here like the Monomi game where you have to grind the same levels over and over in the hopes of getting a rare drop you need. There are two interconnected game modes, entirely seperate from the dating sim mode, that are so elaborate that they could be their own game (not a retail game, but definitely a $20 downloadable one). They're just stuffed with unique content. It's crazy how much post-game there is here.

I actually really enjoyed platinuming both Trigger Happy Havoc & Goodbye Despair! (or DR1&DR2). I did however, not like the monomi miracle girl minigame, not because it took me a long time, but I had basically gotten sick of playing the same levels over and over in search of one damn type of gear that it was hard for me to stomach. I found the dating sim and getting to know the classmates and strengthening bonds a blast and one of the highlights from the Danganronpa series in terms of characters that stay with you forever. I am currently about 95% finished with the trophies in UDG and holy smokes, you arent kidding about the difficulty of V3's insanely complicating Treasure Hunter Monolith. I still lack both the trophy for that and the Racing minigame. Luckily, V3 has way more depth and variety of game modes that encourage replayability so the grind doesn't feel so taxing. These games all have such an amazing cast that honestly, I find myself playing through them again in like 1-2 year gaps so I'm sure I'll platinum V3 by say next year, or maybe the next Danganronpa!!

Congrats and hope you enjoyed the game as much as i did. And to answer the question about how well UDG holds up on PS4, it does well but it also carries with it a bunch of flaws. The AI is so out of date and buggy sometimes, that you will fail your one shot opportunities simply because the Monokuma enemy sentry gets hung up on a wall or is running into a wall and doesnt have enough smarts to back up and redirect itself. Its just a few minor flaws such as this that really caught my eye, but other than that, really the only other drawback for me is the gameplay. Like everyone has already explained, this is a shooter. And I will admit, the devs are not the greatest at making this kinda game experience work. Its fairly easy however, and well worth it just for the characters and dialogue and the lore and backstory of the events from the other games. If you are anything like me, you will need to gather every morcel of info about this world as the tight lipped Kodaka will give. God, i hope he gets over the issues he is having with his attitude and outlook on the series and decide to give the series another shot!!

@jim_bob_89 Outlaw Run is very doable if you practice enough and learn the track. There is a bit of a luck element in terms of the monocub distribution (obviously, the more Monodams that spawn, the more like you are to hit 20,000 points), but I didn't feel like it was anything insurmountable. Oh, and when you do get good at it and consistently get A - S ranks, you'll never have to worry about casino coins again if you're wagering the max amount on mean difficulty.

Treasure Hunter! Monolith is... hell. I don't even think there's much of a skill component to it. You just have to hit your head against it hundreds of times until the gods smile down on you. So glad I got the trophy done and over with. When I go back to DRV3 to platinum it, I only have to worry about that insanely grindy board game and JRPG cycle. The hair pulling trophies are out of the way now.

@Ralizah
I've actually just recently been working on some of the board game trophies and can give ya little insight on the ones I have just recently completed. Ok, if the 2 I have gotten recently are the only 2 (and I think they are but not positive on that) then its really not too much effort involved. You do have to make your ultimate's strong enough and leveled up high enough to make it to Floor 50 under the game mode Monokuma's Test. It is a rpg-like system, a watered down one at the least, but as long as you keep drawing stronger and more special cards for your Ultimates, then you will have it in no time. Now, after Floor 50 is a pure nightmare and I ended up giving up on it after the 50th. The 2nd trophy I recall is (this one may take SEVERAL attempts or your first Ultimate-level card) one that will require you to complete all 3 years worth of the practical exam the Monokubs give to you at the end of each school year. It may not sound hard, but the 3rd years exam is no walk in the park, requiring you to survive 3 pretty tough battles back to back. But once you start drawing Ultimate level cards for your party members to take on Monokuma's Test, then winning all 3 years of exams will be a breeze, but like I said there is a steep curve till you get ready for that. But, anyways I may be wrong about those 2 trophies being the only 2 regarding these modes, but I sure as hell hope that Monokuma test mode doesn't require you to get past floor 65 cuz I wont be doing it if so. Its brutally hard to survive a single round from the enemies at that point, they're so tough!!

I've been really feeling a craving for more Danganronpa lately. I wish the developers could pump out these games much faster, lol. But because of this, I decided to resume my playthrough of Ultra Despair Girls on Vita and it's actually satisfying my craving fairly well. The DR1 music is so nostalgic at this point, the two protagonists are great and I just love seeing Monokuma again. I'm starting to like the 3D action/adventure gameplay more now as well, it feels good to play on the Vita. This is a game I really want to finish from my backlog, so I'm going to try and play more of it in the future.

Danganronpa is love, Danganronpa is life (and despair).

Ultra Despair Girls is great, despite how different it is in terms of gameplay. I liked the puzzle elements, and how disturbing the narrative became over the course of the game. And, of course, Toko and Komaru have a GREAT relationship.

Still thinking about picking that game up some day. For the right price...

@Kidfried Have you played V3 yet though? Personally, I'd wait with UDG and play V3 first since that's the best Danganronpa game so far in my opinion. Also, I don't see any online retailers here in Sweden selling the game anymore, so you might want to buy it ASAP before it becomes hard to find.

Eh. I think it's better to play UDG first, considering that expands the focus of the series' lore, whereas V3... well, it does what it does in the final chapter that has made it such a polarizing game.

Well the Vita versions of both UDG and V3 are discounted on the EU Store right now as part of the Summer Sale, so @Kidfried got his wish granted! Both are around €10 each, amazing prices!
