So i've been chasing the Plat in Bioshock 2 with 1 run through. One of the trophies is to get full research by using the camera to meet all the research levels for different baddies. Turns out that you only have 1 level to get the Thuggish splicers as they don't appear in the level after you get the camera. There is no way to go back in Bioshock 2 and I have nearly got to the end. Sigh...

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

Phew, I got it: platinum #10! Pretty proud of it too, as the challenges really felt like a chore in the end. I could still try to shoot for the DLC challenge trophies, but I don't feel like they would be worthy my time. Gravity Rush 2, however, can't come soon enough.

And I unlocked the AC: Syndicate platinum too. Some pretty dumb grind-y trophies there, though. It's a great game though.

The one thing I hate about trophies and I have yet to experience this on any other games but Lego games, but why is it when playing a two player games sometimes only player one gets a trophy even though you both do the task?

Like for example in Lego Jurassic World the Trophy you get for completing all story levels popped for my son (he was player one) but yet I didn't get it? We both did all the levels together so why didn't I? I guess for me to get it I have to play through it again. Yeah but no thanks. This is one of the instances where I say that trophies are added just to force replayability.

@Tasuki: I think some Lego trophies especially in coop are glitchy. I'm having to rerun a level in the avengers as if you play it on a save 💾 ie) you run the first 1/3 of the level save and exit and then come back, it wont pop for one player. Obviously I never knew that first time around. It actually made me shelve the game as rerunning a 40 minute atypical boring Lego level isn't my idea of fun.

@Rudy_Manchego: And this Rudy ruins games as a part time trophy collector. I don't want to view a list / guide / strategy for collecting trophies until I've played enough of a game without spoiling it. I've tanked on ffx as a major example as there's a heap of missable trophies - but I wanted to play it at my own pace, that was an error. 50 hours in and 13% trophies Your example of missing something unobvious and then looking at the trophy list and your too far gone to ever get the trophy for the rest of your life really REALLY gets my goat.

@booshy89: What are IGC games? So Transistor is a gimme then on the trophy hunt? I may pick that up as I've heard good things (and forgot about it when it was free on psplus).

I do wish there were less grindy trophies in games, the 3 games im currently playing I need 120 yellow stars in grimms tale, 100 golds in need for speed rivals and a 50% winrate over 100 games in everybody's tennis. Its so lazy and time consuming, there could easily be less levels in all of these games or less grindy trophies. That 100 game 50% service wins is horrific, I'm a neat 25 games in and having loads of fun with probably 10 or so left from completing the game...... How the hell will I ever play the remaining 65 games without wanting to throw the ps4 through the window?

@themcnoisy: When I say IGC I just mean PSPlus (Instant Game Collection). Transistor isn't a gimme but has nothing that's missable. It does require 2 and a bit playthroughs (which aren't too long) but you carry over all functions() that you have unlocked into a NewGame+ which makes the follow on playthroughs more fun than the first. I'd definitely advise it - picked it up on Plus, sat on it for ages and am so happy I've eventually gone back.

@themcnoisy @booshy89 I felt Transistor was a bit of a weak spin-off of Bastion (I liked that game a lot). To each his own!

I just got the platinum on Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, as well as finishing the game. I really liked the game, but although I bought the GOTY-edition, I don't nessecarily feel the need to play through the DLC. Yes, the game is repetitive, but in the case of this game that means a repetition of great gameplay mechanics. Despite not being too much of a LOTR-fan I enjoyed the game's atmosphere way more than I though I would.
I can understand why you lot over at Push Square chose it as your #1 game of 2014. It's not on my PS4 top 5, but it's suprisingly well-made and enjoyable nonetheless.

@Kidfried: Never played Bastion so I haven't got that to compare it too - otherwise I might have agreed, who knows?

@Kidfried: @booshy89: @themcnoisy: Transistor is a ton better than Bastion in my opinion, to the point where it's one of my favourite games of this generation and one of only a small handful I've platinumed. Aside from the setting, story, soundtrack and characters (that I thought were all more apealing than Bastions) the combat is the main reason I prefer Transistor so much.

Got the platinum for Ratchet & Clank All 4 One today, also among system issues. That's #13.

Time for a break from cheevo hunting until I'm close to another platinum.

@kyleforrester87 Transistor is a game I've had my eye on since it first came around. Been wanting Bastion as well, so they'll likely be among my first PS4 games.

Just platinumed Lego Jurassic World. Great game over all and if you are looking for easy trophies then I do suggest Lego Jurassic World.

Got a few tonight from the free PSN game Stories. I can see me getting most of the trophies in this game just because how much you have to replay it to get every ending. It sounds like a bit but each playthrough takes about 30 mins to an hour.

Does anyone use https://www.truetrophies.com/ ?

I am registered here as its a great site to track Trophy progression and often a great way to find out how to complete some hidden/difficult trophies too.

Feel free to add me as a friend here if you want too... https://www.truetrophies.com/gamer/TaimeDowne

@BAMozzy: I certainly do use it - I really like some of the statistics that it tracks too.
I've found psnprofiles.com and playstationtrophies.org better places to go for guides and information on how to earn trophies though.

Got the platinum in Gravity Rush Remastered!
I struggled with some of the challenges on vita but on the PS4 with the big screen I never had any trouble.
Really fun and straight forward trophy list (bar one maybe). Think the platinum took about 12 hours.

Bring on Gravity Rush 2! As a vita enthusiast I'm actually glad this moved on. Can't wait to zip across the world with the power of PS4 (stayed away from demo so i don't know).
