@render also, really glad to hear that your taking to Sekiro… that really is an unfinished list that I have to return to myself. Maybe once I’m over this virus, enjoy dude.

Damn @colonelkilgore you're really racing through plats! No. 100 won't be long now. Congrats!

Thanks @WCB tbh mate, I may well have to slow down as I’ve been set on God of War: Ragnarok being 100 for ages. Just waiting on news of a release date so that I can make it happen. Might have to play a few longish games when I get into the high 90’s.

Cheers @ThereThere 👍

I’m nearing the end of Kena Bridge of Spirits and despite having a wonderful time, I’m perturbed at the large gatekeeping for the platinum. By the end of my next session with the game I should finish with all the trophies minus the Master difficulty playthrough trophy. Screw that. No way am I going to be able to get that final trophy, nor would I want to spoil my fond memories of the game in pursuit of it. Even finding all the rot and collectibles has been very pleasant, all aided by the map which helps out. But I’m not planning to take on these bosses in Master difficulty. Kudos to the 2.3% who’ve done it.

I think I may have used every way I can think of to say congratulations to you so....
You da Man.

Also hoping you can kick the illness with no lasting or major issues.

@Th3solution
Fully understand and agree with your sentiments. I would like to platinum all the games I play but if the trophy list is one I know will get me down for whatever reason or will make me play a game I no longer want to then I have to call it and accept that, to me, it's not worth the struggle. I'd rather move on to something I may enjoy as that is, I think, the reason I'm a gamer.

@colonelkilgore You need to get into something which will take a while if you're wanting to slow down for GoW. That way you're not really slowing down gaming but you're slowing your progress. I can tell you Snowrunner took me 180 hours so that'd take you at least a fortnight. 😅

Thanks @sorteddan… and… no, you da man! You been earning plats like me on roids this year! 😉

@JudgeDredd 😅… I do have a few long plats in mind, though I am trying to clean up my trophy list by going back to games I had played for a bit and moved on before finishing atm. Witcher 3 is an option in that regard.

@Th3solution yeah, although I’m yet to play Kena I’ve heard all about the master difficulty and I don’t blame you at all. It’ll only be after I’ve eventually played the game through on normal that I’ll be able to make a decision on whether to go for it or not too.

@Th3solution I’ve started a bit of a thing where I’ll leave a game on the hard drive (if I have space) that I’m toying with the idea of completing a hard mode run of and just dip in when the fancy takes me, but keeping the mindset of not being beholden to achieving it. I’m currently doing this with Shadow of the Tomb Raider, like you I loved the experience but I’m wary of the quest for the plat ruining that buzz.

@colonelkilgore You might not feel as intimidated by Kena’s platinum as I, given your Souls experience and talents at grabbing difficult plats. The game’s not terribly long, especially on a second run if you’ve got all the collectibles. Maybe would take about 8 hours if you don’t run into any hang-ups and remember where you’re supposed to go next. But there’s definitely bosses that would probably take 20 tries and could stall the playthrough. It’ll hardly be your most difficult platinum though. But for me it’s a stretch. I think part of the frustration I feel is that the game looks so cute and kid friendly, but it’s bosses are contrastingly fierce and don’t quite fit the aesthetic. Great fun though. Highly recommend.

Like @ThereThere says, I might just keep it on the drive for a while just in case I feel the urge to try the second run. First I have to complete it though, and I’m trying to savor the final sequence before I call it a wrap.

@Th3solution The odd design choice for Kena is not being able to do the hard mode as NG+ so you lose everything you gain from getting all the collectibles etc first time around.

I get there are some game mechanics that rely on unlocking some of them but I had no inclination to literally restart all over again, particularly given the weird difficulty spikes for some bosses even on normal difficulty.

colonelkilgore

@Th3solution yeah I’ll probably end up giving it the old college try if I’m honest… I certainly ain’t counting any chickens though.

@Thrillho Yeah, it might break the game to have access to the bow and the bombs at the beginning, but I agree — if it was a master run on NG+ then I might give it a try because I like the game so much. But having to start from scratch just sounds like a recipe for turning into a chore. Not sure I can deal with those little chibi kids again. 😅

Platinum #93 - Fallout 4 - still feeling bloody awful but needed to try and distract myself from the discomfort. Dusted this off as I only had about 5 or 6 trophies that I didn’t pop back in 2015. Wow it plays awful… I don’t know quite why I used to dig these games so much! My palette has definitely… ‘changed’ would be the kindest way to put it.

@colonelkilgore sits warily down on the couch
With the brim pulled way down low
Ain't no sound but the sound of the game
Controller ready to go
Are you ready? Hey, are you ready for this?
Are you hanging on the edge of your seat?
Out of the tv, the trophies ping
To the sound of the beat, yeah
Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey, I'm gonna plat you too
Another one bites the dust

Congrats!

@WCB truly epic! 🍻 cheers (though mine will have to be alcohol free with all the meds I’ve got in my system rn 😉).

@colonelkilgore I don’t think anyone can compete with @WCB’s congratulatory post up there, so I’ll just say well done brave sir knight! 👍

I need to polish this off myself, I was really in the zone with it a few years back and then I had a big move and for whatever reason never booted it up again. What in particular has changed for you?

Wow. Just wow.
You seem to be having a productive illness...if I was your boss I would be more than suspicious!

Never finished Fallout 4 myself despite loving 3 and enjoying New Vegas. Didn't enjoy the settlement building parts and everytime I went off to explore I remember getting too many alerts and having to travel back to defend random people I'd sent to the houses. I always thought I should go back and play it just letting them all fend for themselves (+die!). But you say it hasn't aged well and I wasn't particularly enjoying it back then so maybe not.

@ThereThere cheers buddy. It just seemed real ‘old’. Graphically it has dated quite a bit… but stuff like the frame rate etc is also really poor. I don’t think Bethesda’s games ever ‘played’ that well really… and was always really a game of numbers behind the scenes but I just think the many action-rpg’s, souls-likes and action-adventures that I’ve played since have just made me want better from the action.

@sorteddan 🤣 to be fair, there wasn’t much activity needed from my covid-addled reactions to polish off Life is Strange and Fallout 4. The 100% settlement happiness trophy was the one that took up the most of my time yesterday and just had me alternating between sitting idle, sitting in wait time and sleeping… was the perfect trophy for my current state 😅.

Yeah but the imaginary your boss character I've become doesn't understand that. He just thinks 'if you're well enough to play games youre well enough to work'. I think he might be an industrial capitalist dick type character.... he wears a waistcoat that's just too tight.
