Trophies & Achievements

  • Platinum #118: Return of the Obra Dinn. A really cool game, another unique piece by Lucas Pope. Finished the whole book in two or three days, some great fates to witness and deduce. After that it was only this "Captain Did It" run to go through for the platinum. What a laughable scenario to write down in that. :]

  • Platinum #119: Batman: The Enemy Within. Pretty standard Telltale game here, just finish it all for the platinum. I ended up really liking the story here, very interesting conversations and scenarions between the characters. Pretty unexpected turns, too, along the way. Not your average Batman story.

  • Platinum #8: Sayonara Wild Hearts
    Super fun game with some of the best visuals and an addictive pop soundtrack to accompany it.
    The trophy system is extremely creative, albeit hard to decipher, and since there is an achievement system in the game itself it means the switch version also has "trophies".

    While I did nope out of the platinum at first thinking it was too difficult, I just kept saying "one more trophy" till I got the plat lol.

  • @thedemonpirate That is impressive! I most certainly did say nope seeing some of the requirements for the trophies, but great to hear someone beat all the challenges.

  • @sentinel-beach While they do sound crazy difficult reading them, actually trying them out proved to be easier than I thought.
    There are a couple of annoying ones I spent ages on like getting no points in Night Drift, only "good" prompts in FIghting Hearts, and getting Gold rank on some levels (screw Inside and Wild Hearts Never Die).
    I was mainly afraid of beating Yolo Arcade but it seems that as long as you get any rank, dying mid-way is fine.
    Overall, it was a blast and I never got tired of the music.

  • Platinum #120: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. This took some time for sure. A loooot of collectables and datascans everywhere. Not that difficult to collect them per se, but time-consuming. 100 %-ing Zeffo, never again. That place is huge. Luckily there are no difficulty level based trophies in the game, so you can play on the level you please.

  • Platinum #121: Life Is Strange 2. Six collectibles per episode plus you need to draw something in each one as well.

  • Platinum #9: GRIS
    Finally came out on PS4!
    Easily one of the prettiest games I've played. Felt like a moving painting.
    Although gameplay offered more to be desired, it was a fun romp while it lasted.
    Platinum was pretty easy too.

  • Platinum #122: Seasons After Fall. A small metroidvania, kinda, in nature surroundings with pretty painted graphics and quite soothing music. An easy game, no enemies and you just manipulate the seasons a bit here and there for example to freeze water. Easy to platinum, maybe the flowers as the only collectables can take some effort to find.

  • Platinum #123: BioShock. A recent PlayStation Plus game (or all three of them, actually). I'd been meaning to return to Rapture since this Collection was released in 2016 and now I finally got no reason not to. It had been over a decade since I'd played the game and hey, it still holds up! Very nicely, even.

    The platinum trophy can be earned through an easy trick, meaning you can play the whole game on Easy (and switch the Vita-Chambers off) and then just at the last moment in the final fight set the difficulty to Survival and BAM! The game thinks you beat it on the hardest level and gives you all the stackable trophies related to that.

    Other than that you need to make sure you collect all the audio diaries, that's the biggest collectable trophy. And you need to keep your camera shooting and research with it all the different enemies which takes some time. Inventing 100 items came surprisingly close, as it only popped in the last main level. Almost had me worried.

    And I just want to add that Andrew Ryan still has one of the most iconic voices in video games. What a character, what a vision.

  • As someone who loves getting platinum trophies, I've been really bad about actually getting them, but I've been using the early 2020 lull to do some catching up. Here's my list of platinums up to this point:

    1. inFAMOUS: Second Son
    2. Rocket League
    3. Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus
    4. Kingdom Hearts
    5. Kingdom Hearts II
    6. Batman: A Telltale Series - Season 1
    7. Uncharted: Drakes Fortune
    8. Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance
    9. God of War
    10. Marvel’s Spider-Man
    11. Kingdom Hearts III
    12. Bloodborne
    13. Sly 2: Band of Thieves

    And then I just finished:
    14. Horizon Zero Dawn

    I also got all of the Frozen Wilds trophies, but I think I'm gonna save the two NG+ trophies for just before the sequel comes out, whenever that is. But I had a great time with this game! It took a little while for me to really get into, but once I felt more comfortable with combat and just how all the systems worked, I loved it. The trophies weren't too bad in general. The most time consuming were the collectable trophies, but that wasn't even too bad since they tell you the general areas to find them if you buy the maps.
