@colonelkilgore Hard to say exactly. I had to start over once I got 3/4 of the way through the game because of a bug that made it impossible for me to progress. I’d say that it probably takes about 5 hours to plat. Even less with a guide.

@Bentleyma Congrats, I reckon you were quicker than some Troy Baker speeches.

Platinum #47 is Final Fantasy XVI
Let me just say the difficulty of Final Fantasy Mode (the “hard” mode unlocked after regular playthrough) started with level 49 (regular mode caps at 50) and best gear from normal mode (which doesn’t matter that much, as you get better gear very soon) is what I wish the regular mode was, while the regular difficulty should be called “easy”.
Total play time clocked at about 100h.

@Voltan Congrats on ff16, sounds like a FF that I might be able to platinum

@Voltan congrats dude, currently around halfway through my Final Fantasy Mode run and the difficulty has noticeably began to ramp up during the last couple of missions… and as you’ve alluded to, it plays even better as a result.

**** DLC!

@CaptD To be fair, some of the fights in hard mode are quite challenging and mastering the precision dodge will be crucial but I do believe getting 100% on regular playthrough should be enough practice.
Also, you can still use the assist accessories in hard mode if you need to (I didn't).

@Voltan lies, @CaptD. He did.

@Voltan Congrats! FF Mode does feel like the ‘right’ balance for difficulty, though I can’t imagine dealing with some of the earlier battles without all of the Eikonic abilities already unlocked. Just defeated Sleipnir who for whatever reason gave me a real run for my money. Have you played around with Ultimaniac mode at all?

@Jimmer-jammer I have not and honestly I don't think I will - mostly because there's too many other games to play and not nearly enough time
As for difficulty - for sure, I'm not saying you should be starting with this exact mode, just that the game feels better when it presents a bit of a challenge, which the base difficulty did not.

@Voltan Too many games to play - I hear ya there!

Big congrats to everyone on the team recent plats!

Number 24 for me
#24 Cyberpunk 2077

A game I enjoyed way more than I thought I would. After all the drama I stayed away from it and then Completed it last year when the ps5 version released but left a few trophies as Ragnarok came out. Knew I'd come back to it at some point and well eventually I did, NCPD scanners to complete which was a bit of a grind but the biggest grind now especially all exploits seem to be patched out is the skill level 20! This was easily my biggest time consumer.

@MaulTsir Great work choom!

I actually found some of the niche combat ones the most annoying, like killing someone with the jump move etc. Luckily on my first run I spent so much time quickhacking that I got the lvl20 one easily enough. The NCPD scanner one isn’t so bad when you find out you can find the icons on the map (when they’re weirdly not automatically on it).

The main reason for me having to replay the entire game though was because I missed saving Takemura first time round…

Congrats @MaulTsir, glad that you enjoyed it. Every time I see Cyberpunk 2077 mentioned I’m like 🤔 “I really need to make some time to play that”… and then subsequently forget all about it 😅. Maybe this time it’ll stick in the mind.

**** DLC!

Thrillho

@colonelkilgore I’d definitely wait for the big patch to drop first now! I might even be tempted back for a third run [tries not to make eye contact with his gaming backlog shaking its head in the corner]

@Thrillho even if it does stick in the mind it wouldn’t be until sometime in 2024 at the earliest mate 👍

**** DLC!

CaptD

@MaulTsir Congrats on your platinum. I've yet to play cyberpunk, might wait for the complete edition which they said they will release at some point.
I think very much like Cyberpunk by Billy Idol it will be regarded a bit more fondly than at release.

MaulTsir

@Thrillho Thanks! Yeah the maps a great help for the location of the NCPD scanners, there's just a lot of them, I did a lot during my playthrough naturally as you come across them but still had a good 80 to do by the end. You have to have the right attribute levelled to get to 20, I had quick hacks to 18 but then couldn't go any further, like you I spent so much time quick hacking that it's probably the best skill to do but I only had 20 in my body attribute so had to get one of the skills linked to that to 20, well they've nerfed xp you earn massively and patched all of the exploits I could find online so I literally got my shotgun found the best place for enemies and rinsed and repeated that until done 🤣

@colonelkilgore thanks, it's definitely worth playing and I think it's a game you'd really enjoy but like Thrillho said your best waiting for the latest patch, they are bringing alot to the game apparently.

@CaptD thanks! I'd wait for the dlc to release and any patches it's going to get and then jump in, it's a brilliant game, hope you enjoy it if you ever get round to it.

@MaulTsir A late congrats. I was planning on doing a second playthrough before Phantom Liberty with the female V (to experience different things, like a different romance), but the more I thought about it (and the more I looked at my backlog), I decided to wait and do it once the big update drops. I'll probably go through Phantom Liberty sometime after that even though I pre-ordered it. I also purposely didn't do some of the side content so I'd have an even more different second playthrough. I'm another who loved the game of course.

@KilloWertz I much preferred my female V (corpo background) and thought she had much better voice acting.

Thrillho

KilloWertz

@Thrillho I thought the male voice actor was fine, but I will try to remember to do my own comparison of the two whenever I do start my second playthrough.

I have preferred the female voice acting in the original Mass Effect trilogy and now Andromeda, so I guess it wouldn't be too surprising if I agreed.
