Trophies & Achievements

  • Platinum #124: Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom. So. Many. Collectables. The game's trophy list is basically just a dozen different collectible trophies and then the non-missable story trophies. So yeah, I went with a guide, couldn't even have completed the game without it, to be honest. I found it that kind of challenging.

  • Platinum #125: Puzzle Showdown 4K. A super easy platinum. I earned the trophies in two nights - some of them with the help of a second controller - so now I can forget that side completely and keep this as a sort of relaxation toy for those kinds of moments.

  • Platinum #62: Monster Hunter: World. I've been lazy lately when it comes to getting platinums, maybe I'm burnt out.

    Another tedious platinum, the grind was real, when I decided to go for platinum it took several hours to find small and large crowns. The last one from the base game took 118 kills and I returned from quest numerous times after doing measurements. Time will tell when I go for Iceborne platinum.

  • Platinum #126: Mortal Kombat 11. I left this unfinished, so to speak, last spring and now finally returned to the game a week ago or so. There was a lot to do still, but thankfully PowerPyx's guide had been updated during these long months. :P A bunch of nice hints and shortcuts there.

    I even got to Shang Tsung's throne room in the Krypt finally. That took ten impaled heads to those spikes, each of them worth 25 Fatalities done to that specific character. That took a moment, yeah. There are still two more doors in that final place, but those would require all the remaining 15 character heads, soooo... I think I'm ok with the current situation.

  • Platinum #15: The Order 1886

    Bought this on sale like a year and a half ago and never got to it until now. I liked it a lot though! Definitely see why people were disappointed with length when it came out, but I hope they come back to this property at some point. And I appreciated pretty easy trophies., just had to keep track of collectibles as I went along and had to grind the grenade kills after I beat it.

    Platinum #16: Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories

    So I have it in my head that I need to platinum every KH game, and I've had a good time for the most part, but this was a slog. I actually gained a new appreciation for the combat system doing my Proud mode playthroughs, but grinding to LV99 for both characters was soooo tedious. At least it's done, and Birth By Sleep is the last one, which I'm almost done with already.

  • Platinum #127: Concrete Genie. A short game with an easy platinum trophy. You get a bunch from the story and quite a few from just painting and your genies then reacting to those paintings. A fair number of collectables which aren't that hard to find but a guide can still be a friend.

  • Platinum #128: L.A. Noire. Again. Now on PS4 after nine years with the original. Don't know exactly why I did it, because this was a long project. Those collectables are so worthless and just lazily dropped here and there. And the "all vehicles" trophy, dear Lord. Never again. For some reason I also had trouble tackling anyone in this version. I honestly didn't manage a single tackle through the whole game. Had to cheese it in a weird way with Hugo Moller, running from the other side of his house etc. and still it took a few tries, too. And just in general: the game wasn't as good as I had remembered. It's unique, but not as good.

  • Platinum #129: American Fugitive. Not the most easiest platinum trophy but still manageable. The hardest thing were by far the time trial races in which you needed to get the gold in every one. Merciless stuff, basically no room for error, so prepare for a solid number of retries with this trophy. The other slightly frustrating was gettin all the 15 different flyers - so a collectable trophy - because those things were random in regards where they would spawn. Or I mean they were always inside the buildings when robbing the places, but in there it was random. Luckily I was pretty lucky with them in the end.

  • Platinum #130: Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition. Cannot be platinumed without a guide. And although you could see reading such a guide pretty spoilery for a story-heavy game like this, it really wasn't. This game's almost like a literal dream of a sort, the following scenes can feel very weird and separate from another, so it didn't matter at all (for me at least) if you knew an upcoming place etc.

  • Platinum #131: The Lego Ninjago Movie Video Game. A free game, yey! I only knew the Ninjago series by name, but this was a decent Lego game nonetheless. Very familiar stuff if you're going for the 100 % and the platinum.

    The Skywalker Saga will be much bigger this fall. And much, much better. Can't wait!
