@leucocyte I never like it when games give you trophies for bad endings and making mistakes. I’ve just been playing Phoenix Wright ace attorney trilogy and it seemed to give you about a quarter of the trophies for making mistakes.

Crash bandicoot had trophies for dying in interesting ways to something that I would rather try and avoid.

I got the platinum trophy in Burnout Remastered. It was super easy, almost makes me want to finish all the DLC trophies too, because right now it almost feels too easy.

@Kidfried thinking about giving that another go when EA access launches. Got the platinum on the original but never really messed with the dlc. Does it still have that 8 player meet up trophy like in the PS3 version? That was a ROYAL pain in the butt to coordinate

@redd214 Yes, but you can get it offline too with a workaround. Granted, it comes down to a bit of luck, but at least it's possible. Currently you'll have a hard time finding 8 people online, servers aren't that crowded.

Played through Minecraft story mode today with the kiddos and got platinum 73, going to be doing season 2 tomorrow hopefully.

I always like when playing with the kids gives you an excuse to hunt down a few trophies. I'm definitely guilty of this with the Lego games. Good family fun!

@Beard-Crumbs oh for sure!! I think we've platinumed 5 or 6 Lego games. Still got Lego Batman 3 to finish up and will definitely be doing the Star Wars one when it comes out!

Just got my 76th platinum, Anthem. Wouldn't wish that collectible grind on anyone lol! Such a broken game in so many ways, even little QOL things that make no sense whatsoever. Ah well frees up 50 gigs

Platinum #22 - Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.
A fairly easy platinum, the hardest one being “collecting” (more like listening to) all the lorestones — Which was a very integral part of the experience for me anyways.

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

Platinum #77 done, Soul Calibur 6. Quite a grind but a great game and return to form for the series!

I haven't had to actually grind like this (and for so long!) in quite a while, but I dead it... the platinum for Danganronpa Ultra Despair Girls. The grinding felt like such a waste of time for; just mindlessly shooting the enemies to raise to max level wasn't fun for a second actually. But when I finished my first playthrough of the game on level 88 out of 100 and with most of the collectibles found... it felt like a waste not to go for full completion.

So here we are. Do I feel satisfied? Proud? Am I happy to have wasted these last few hours? Well, I don't want to think about that stuff too much.

@Kidfried lol I just listened to podcasts while grinding for the collectibles in UDG. I kept missing some, though, so I ended up doing three full playthroughs.

It's more busywork than anything. Unlike V3, with its ream and reams of postgame content. Of the 120 hours or so I spent on that game, maybe 40 of it was the actual main playthrough.

Anyway, congrats!

@Kidfried Considering the extra effort it takes to play a game beyond its welcome, I reckon you should feel prouder of that platinum than others which were genuinely enjoyable. Congratulations!

@RogerRoger That's true. Though platinums can often get quite tedious in the end of course.

(Also, I got the platinum for Horizon Chase, which is my 6th platinum of 2019 so far. That's far less than last year, but I don't think I'll ever manage 15 in a year again).

@Kidfried Nicely done; so that brings your total platinums up to how many?

@Ralizah I loved First Light, it's like The Flash game we never got!

@KALofKRYPTON It's basically X-Men x The Flash x Gravity Rush. Very cool and responsive traversal mechanics and combat. Actually, the fact that it was just so fun to play around with is probably why I stuck with it through some of the more random and infuriating challenges (that one where you shoot airborn enemies is borderline broken, lol; also had to grind drive-bys to get the trophy for blowing people off ledges!).

@Ralizah I think I managed to breeze through a lot of it. My trophy completion ended with the challenge rooms as I recall.

Really enjoyed it and Second Son.

@KALofKRYPTON @Ralizah I have fond memories of Infamous Second Son as it was my first ps4 game (and Infamous too). Apart from one or two boss fights sucking, I loved every minute of it.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

There is no longer a good time to release a game. There are only less s**t times to release a game

Completing Shenua last night gave me my 4000th trophy overall! The game is pretty generous with giving out golds but I'm gutted I must have missed one of the lore stones to not get the platinum.

Th3solution

@Thrillho Yeah, that’s the most annoying thing about the game’s trophy system — there is no chapter select or way to do multiple saves to backtrack for any missed lorestones. You have to play the full game again to get any that you missed. There are only a couple that are out of the way, but all it takes is one and you miss that trophy.
So what did you think of the game as a whole? I hope I didn’t oversell it a couple weeks ago and that you liked it as much as I did.
