Trophies & Achievements

  • Platinum #28: Nostalgic Train
    It's a self-described walking simulator and also has a novel-length worth of text for the story. It's literally all text, lol. I had a good time though, it's quite beautiful and the story is more interesting than I first thought. Got this plat in like 3 hours.

  • @Sentinel-Beach I have to say, I am absolutely fascinated by you lol. I consider myself a pretty avid gamer but have maybe 8 platinums to my name. I generally only go for platinums in games I deeply love or care about. For a while now I have just been impressed with the effort you put in! And the time!

  • @ozymandsss Heh, well thank you very much! :) This was a really nice surprise waiting here.

    I tend to be a bit perfectionist in certain matters and games easily fall under that trait. The trophy lists can bug me a bit if there are unearned ones still left. I like taking a peek at trophy guides of the games I know I'm getting and then weigh in the pros and cons of going for the platinum.

    Often when there are multiple playthroughs needed I give up and won't do it, like Lost Judgment just a month ago. No way I was gonna beat that long game twice. But for instance now I have Psychonauts 2 and Far Cry 6 in the "platinum process", it just takes time with them. I'll get there eventually. And Deathloop I've finished, but its remaining trophies seem easy enough to earn. At some point.

  • @Sentinel-Beach Thanks for the explanation! I also have Psychonauts 2 in progress and that may be the next game I care enough about to go for. But with so many collectables and so little time, not to mention so much else on my backlog, it may not happen. I am playing through Life is Strange True Colors and I imagine that one will be nigh-automatic, as these games tend to be. I look forward to following your future endeavors!

  • Platinum #164: Psychonauts 2. This one took a long time. The game itself is a long one, meaning the plot and the levels, and then after that there's a big number of collectibles that you've propably missed plenty of during the initial playthrough. Thankfully there were a couple of helping items/additions that eased it a bit to track down everything. And only two (or three) missable trophies in general, be sure to check those before starting if the platinum is your aim.

  • Platinum #165: Heal. A small one man's indie puzzle game by Finnish Jesse Makkonen.

  • Platinum #166: Chicory: A Colorful Tale. Looooots of collectables in this one. Luckily there are some pretty good maps online and the game itself has a hint system for various collectable items, but that was still a big chore. End-game stuff in any case, you get to freely explore the game world after finishing the story. Nothing's missable.

  • Platinum #167: I Am Dead. This was a soothing game, liked it quite a lot. The art style and all. The trophies dealt mostly with finding different objects from the environments. Had to use a guide with the riddles, those would've been ridiculous otherwise.

  • Platinum #168: Death's Door. A good game but also a pretty complicated one when it comes to its trophies. I used a guide a bunch. Still, even without one the longest and most demanding trophy was to finish the game using only an umbrella as your melee weapon. Which honestly did nothing, so your playthrough becomes a ranged damage one. Luckily it sort of gets easier as it goes along, except that it doesn't. I don't know. This was a challenging game through the whole journey but never impossible by no means.

  • @sentinel-beach If you haven't already I recommend Toem for a straightforward platinum.

  • @jdincinerator Did it in October, my #162. Thanks for the idea anyway! :)

  • Platinum #169: Far Cry 6. This was a long project, took a while. Looooots of trophies and a good bunch of them collecting some stuff around the game-world or capturing enemy bases etc. A couple missable ones, too, when it came to those bases (had to do one stealthy, one in co-op, and one in which you sabotaged a junction box of sorts).

  • Platinum #170: Lego DC Super-Villains. You know how these Lego games work: first the story, then the free mode, and finally the hub. A long process, but still enjoyable while listening to a lot of EZA stuff at the same time. A fine appetizer for Star Wars in April.

  • @sentinel-beach Do you go for any of the piss-easy platinums that take a minute or few to complete?

  • @jdincinerator Not really. I think I have like half a dozen of those, had a "phase" at one point, but it didn't feel satisfying. I go game-first and then check if the trophy guide is manageable, like should I go for the platinum. Also I've noticed that I rather go for the time consuming platinums than the difficult and hard ones.

  • Platinum #14: Gorogoa
    Whenever I play games like this (a la Witness), I wish I had half the creativity the developers have. If you don't know what Gorogoa is, it is a short puzzle game where you drag and drop pictures in a 4x4 grid to move the story forward. It is difficult to explain without a visual aid, but I would suggest you go into it blind anyways.

    The trophies are all quite straightforward. There are two (beat the game in under 30 minutes and beat the game in under 500 moves) that I thought were going to prevent me from nabbing that platinum but I ended up getting both on my second run through the game :)

  • Platinum #171: Deathloop. A looot of trophies in this one. I finished the game in September with only half of the trophies done, had that in my mind throughout the last few months, and now finally for the last week I cleared the game thoroughly. The trophy list really forces you to experiment in many ways, which was actually pretty cool. On the other hand there were also a few really weird ones, too, like Charlie's games. Never would've figured them out without a guide.

  • Platinum #29: Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
    You're not playing a R&C game right if you don't 100% it tbh.

  • Platinum #15: Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
    Long ass trophy list (50!) but all are pretty easy. Uncharted trophy lists are usually too much for me but this one's pretty manageable.

  • Platinum #172: Horizon Forbidden West. I got the platinum trophy by finishing the story, I'd done everything else (needed) before that. What a game. What a beautiful game. Such an improvement in every area and I already loved HZD so much. The last two weeks I've been totally enthralled by this world. Now, after 72 hours I finished it with pretty much all the side quests and such. Though my final number is still only 78 % done, so there's a lot still hiding in there.
