Congratulations to @colonelkilgore and @WCB for those latest platinums!

On the subject of those Screwball challenges in Spider-Man, sometimes I feel like the only person in the world who didn't mind her, and actually enjoyed her as a parody. I can understand how her challenges might've burned out some players trying to do everything at once, though.

@colonelkilgore It must be massively more difficult to do if you are relying on other people so hats off to you for persevering.

@RogerRoger thanks, mate. I should point out I already had the platinum though, I just finished up 7 DLC trophies I was missing.

On the subject of Screwball, I agree with you she is a good character. I don't find her annoying just her challenges can get frustrating is all. The combat ones are fine, pretty easy actually, and the gadget ones are too once you know what you're doing, just a matter of getting as many photobombs as possible. The stealth and bomb challenges had me looking up vids for the best routes to take, and really what was the most frustrating was my mediocre web slinging skills lol.

@render cheers buddy but it was honestly more maintaining the motivation to persevere with the lonely grind than anything else. And as terrible as it sounds, I kinda think I’ll always feel ‘different’ about the guys who committed to the task and then flaked… I mean I’m not gonna let in effect our relationships but deep down I think I’ll always be slightly annoyed… as ridiculous as that sounds.

I can't believe they flaked after the first session haha. I would have been pissed.

@WCB I know right… good to know it’s not just me 🍻

@colonelkilgore I can appreciate that. Shows you don't really know someone until you've played Division 2 with them 😅

@WCB I missed your Spider-Man plat and 100%, congrats on that. I went straight from the main game into the DLC and just generally enjoyed the game but can appreciate also if you felt like you'd had enough at one point. You made it though and that's what counts!

@WCB Well, I'll withdraw my congratulations then!

The stealth challenges were the only ones that gave me slight trouble, but I'd usually find a pattern bit by bit, and nail them after a handful of restarts. I'm a big fan of stealth in games, though, and often tried to maintain stealth wherever possible, so I recognise my bias there.

But yeah, you're not alone in lamenting her challenges' gameplay, if not her character. At least you went back and tidied everything up, which is more than most would've done, I'm sure!

So you can have your congratulations back, I suppose.

Just managed to pop the major online trophy (there’s two but only one takes any real effort) for Everybody’s Golf so even though the servers are closing in September, I’ll never be locked out of the Platinum now. Still a helluva lot of time and effort to get anywhere near plat’n it as it’s a monster but I’ve given myself some leeway.

@colonelkilgore congrats on the trophy, I know its not a plat but some trophies are more worthy of praise than some plats because of the effort involved in popping that certain one.

Managed to get 2 plats this weekend, Mass Effect and Mass Effect 3. Still got 3 trophies to go for the plat on mass effect 2 so I'll slowly work through that to complete the hat-trick.

@colonelkilgore Nice work on that online trophy. It doesn't even seen that old for the servers to be shutdown already. Always a shame when they can't find a way of keeping these things alive but I don't know what the player base is like to know if there's enough people to warrant it.

@MaulTsir Congrats on those ME plats. I've got the plat for 1 and will hopefully work on 2 and 3 this year.

colonelkilgore

@MaulTsir cheers dude, it wasn’t as bad as I was imagining it would be in all honesty… but still, glad to have squared it away. Congrats on your 2 new shineys also, I’m looking forward to returning to Mass Effect… good to know you enjoyed it so much all these years later.

Thanks @render, yeah it’s a shame as the game is a lot of fun. As a platinum hunter, online trophies on older games are the bane of gaming!

@render cheers buddy, I think ME2 has the most grindy trophies out of the 3, but I always make multiple saves for different stages of the game so I can just jump in where I need to. Shouldn't take to long but I'm not going to spend all my time on it. Good luck in your hunt for the other 2.

@colonelkilgore online trophies should have their own category me thinks!

Cheers, honestly after all these years it's Still definitely in my top 5, you can just tell how much love and effort went in to making these games, the lore, the story, the character development, the ugly issues, the humour. The gameplay is actually nothing ground breaking and across all 3 you can see that they've tried to shake it up in the way you upgrade gear in each game and each time I think feels worse than the last, that's probably only gripe. I think I'm on of the few who prefers number 1 to number 2 and 3 for the actual way the weapons and upgrades worked.

There's a part in mass effect 3 where Joker is explaining to EDI (An AI) what a joke is and I remember years ago as a 20 year old thinking it was funny because it was obvious AI's would struggle to understand humour, now 10+ years later I laughed because there's alot of people who could do with explaining what a joke is not just AI's 🤣

@colonelkilgore Well done getting that time-sensitive trophy in the bag! Smart move!

@MaulTsir Nice work on those Mass Effect platinum trophies, and best of luck securing the last one! I know it's a bit of a grind but hey, being forced to play more Mass Effect is hardly torture, right?!

Finally finished off that NG+ for the Miles Morales platinum. Not a hard one but still surprisingly only a 7% earn percentage among players.

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

@Th3solution congrats buddy, such a great little game. I actually liked it quite a bit more that Spider-man… really think that Sony should pump out a little expandalone side-part to all of their big AAA’s.
