Yo guys! I'm Marco, I'm 28 and I live in Turin, Italy. I've been a PlayStation user since 1995 when my dad came home one day with the glorious PS1 and Wipeout game. We used to play together Mario Bros on NES back in the days and this new console was something incredible! That day really started my life as a gamer.
I really space through almost all the genres, especially JRPGs, Action games, Third Person Shooters, First Person Shooters, Driving (mainly Arcade than Simulating), Soccer..
I use to collect stuffs such as Japanese Manga (I'd better say "I used to"), Games (I still have PS1 games, some NTSC and JAP too, all my PS2 games, all my PSP games and ALL the PS3 games I've bought so far), Movies and so on, so that's why I collect trophies too. But I don't like to get as much as I can renting or getting them on loan from a friend just for the counter. I buy the games I think I'd like and I try to complete them.
Anyway, that's it now. I'll try to add more stuffs about me later

My first platinum! I really had a whole lot of fun playing this game with my ex-clan mates. The only thing i hated was the night while riding a bike. I think i went down on the road like 1k times during night... I managed to get all the expansions and collect all trophies to 100%. The Big Surf Island was very very fun to play just as the other dlcs! I can't wait for a proper sequel.

This is one of my proudest platinums. I had A TON of problems finishing the game at Elite difficulty. It was like "oh crap, the enemy can see my... *BOOM* HEADSHOT" (repeat this for roughly 3000 times). But it was nothing compared to the Valor Grand Cross . My 60Gb PS3 got the YLOD before the week ended but i managed to get enough points, so i had to resynch the game trophies on my 120Gb Slim and unlock the platinum.
UNCHARTED 2: AMONG THIEVES
Date of Platinum: 25th Oct 2009
36 8 3 1 (73%)
I really really liked Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, so i bought the Special Edition of this at day one. I really loved it, i was like "OMG!" looking at the graphics. Anyway i think it's way easier than the first one. I didn't have any trouble finishing it on Crushing! difficulty. Beside that i think the multiplayer wasn't good at all, with messed up weapon damage. Still a good title, tho.
MODERN WARFARE 2
Date of Platinum: 18th Nov 2009
38 10 2 1 (100%)
After months spent on the first Modern Warfare with my friends i managed to get this. This one too it's easier IMHO to complete on Veteran mode. I really enjoyed the Spec Ops, and i've spent like 40+ in game days on the multiplayer. I still play a few matches a day with friends even tho i've done everything on it.
ASSASSIN'S CREED 2
Date of Platinum: 12th Dec 2009
34 15 1 1 (100%)
I really loved this story. A whole lot than the first one. Maybe it's because this takes place in Italy. By the way it wasn't a challenging platinum but i still had fun while getting it. I really like the "making gold" feature, even tho i had so much gold i couldn't use anywhere. I'm looking forward to get the new Assassin's Creed to know the next part of the story.

This IS my proudest platinum. Wipeout was my very first PS1 game back in 1995. Anyway i hadn't got any luck on my first attempt. In fact i gave up on it since i couldn't manage to get Beat Zico , Elite Campaign Legend , Zone Zeus and Airbraker trophies. But when i re-started it on my PS3 Slim i finished the campaign without any issue.

I love fantasy so i had to buy this game, and i really liked it. I only had some problems doing the last level on hard difficulty without dying, but i managed to finish it after a few tries. We are soon getting the second chapter, i will buy it for sure.
RED ALERT 3
Date of Platinum: 2nd May 2010
39 9 2 1 (100%)
Another very hard platinum to get. I really love RTS, especially the Command & Conquer saga. Nice graphic this time, totally different from past episodes. I really enjoyed it even tho it's very difficult to play this kind of games on consoles. It was HARD to finish it on Hard difficulty, i've done all the campaigns alone but i managed to finish them without looking for strategies on the net.
FINAL FANTASY XIII
Date of Platinum: 7th May 2010
21 9 5 1 (100%)
The last installement in the Final Fantasy saga. I've played all Final Fantasy on PS consoles from FF VII to XII, i was curious to try this one since the 12th sucked so badly. It's a nice game even tho i REALLY miss the shops, the cities, the world map.. I only had some problems with the Treasure Hunter trophy. It was really time consuming.
Date of Platinum: 15th May 2010

"Game"... this is mainly an interacted-movie. I liked the story so much, finally i had the chance to play a mature game. I completed it quite easily, there were just a few "perfect" tasks to do that slowed my time but nothing too much challenging. Nice game tho.
GOD OF WAR
Date of Platinum: 19th May 2010
20 10 5 1 (100%)
I bought the Collection even tho i played both of them back in the days on my PS2. I've chosen to play all three games in a row, to remember how was the story since i really didn't remember it that much. It wasn't that hard to get this platinum, just a few challenges were tricky.
GOD OF WAR II
Date of Platinum: 21st May 2010
18 11 5 1 (100%)
I started the second chapter right after I had finish the first one. This time I really didn't remember the story at all. I think this game was a little harder than the previous one, the challenges too. It was just an anticipation of what I waited for years...
GOD OF WAR III
Date of Platinum: 25th May 2010
20 10 5 1 (100%)
Finally! Another great God of War game. Super graphic, improved gameplay, the fights aganist the Gods, the emotions changing in Kratos... i waited for this! Anyway the only hard trophy it's been the aMAZEd one because i made a mistake on checkpoints and i had to do it on Titan Mode. Very challenging.
Date of Platinum: 27th July 2010
27 5 5 1 (100%)
My first impression was like "WTF?!" after my tenth or more death in a row in the first level. It's really, really challenging at start but it gets easier as soon as you progress in the game. I had to boost a few weapons with friends because farming materials was really annoying. I had to play through it like five times since i used some souls by mistake. Nice game, i'm looking forward for the next installement of this serie.

Borderlands! Finally i may say. I wanted this game since the day one but couldn't find it at a good price. I bought the GOTY edition as soon as it was released. I loved this game. It's strange because it reminds me so much of Fallout and I really can't play that game, maybe it's the cartoon graphic that makes it good to play. I got the platinum without any particular effort, but I had troubles finishing the Armory DLC...
BATTLEFIELD: BAD COMPANY 2
Date of Platinum: 29th Nov 2010
41 7 2 1 (71%)
I wanted this game since i saw the first gameplay teaser. It's a new definition of war games. It has almost everything: a good graphic, a good size of maps (BC 1 has maps way too big for me), good sound, variety of weapons and vehicles. I only had problems for the demolitions online. I had to boost them with a friend. I can't wait for Vietnam to be released and i'm looking forward to get all the other DLCs as soon as i can.
Date of Platinum: 1st Dec 2010

Take cars and Wipeout and put them all together. This is Blur! I bought this game with Bad Company 2 from a friend and i really liked this so much! I had some issues doing the races on Hard at start so i focused on the multiplayer mode. After reaching level 50 i tried the races again and i managed to finish them all without any problem. It only took me 10 more days to get the platinum since i couldn't complete the Ultimate Comeback Challenge. I managed to get it done at night in a 3 players skirmish. No boosting at all here.
CALL OF DUTY CLASSIC
Date of Platinum: 07th Dec 2010
26 6 5 1 (100%)
Since MW2 servers were closed when i bought it, i started (and finished) this game on Normal. Then i tried Veteran mode but it was really a pain in the ass to me so i left it at the Eder Dam mission. I resumed it on December 2010 and i managed to finish it thanks to YouTube walkthroughs. Finishing it again on Hard was so easy since i could get use of those damn medikits again. I'm not a fan of WW war games anyway...
WHITE KNIGHT CHRONICLES
Date of Platinum: 28th Mar 2011
8 7 8 1 (100%)
I've bought this game on July 2010 and I knew it would've been hard to complete because I read the trophy guide on this site. It took me 650 hours to get the platinum trophy but I could've got it in 400/450. I have helped friends with low level quests, spent hours chatting in the online room and harvesting materials in missions & rooms. Anyway another "pain in the ass" platinum added to my list.
Date of Platinum: 10th May 2011
26 10 4 1 (100%)
Thanks to PSN downtime I'd the chance to play this game. I left it months before because I wanted to play other games and somehow I forced myself to try to finish it. I've had some problems just with my first playthrough (Fixer) since I didn't knew what to do most of the times. The other three runs were almost a cake walk. Also some challenges were tough enough but I managed to complete them under the requested time. It wasn't a bad game afterall...
UNCHARTED: DRAKE'S FORTUNE
Date of Platinum: 15th May 2011
36 8 3 1 (100%)
Again thanks to PSN downtime I found the will to play this game again. I left it in 2008 at 91% right after three playthrougs in a row (easy-normal-hard). I didn't have the will to play it AGAIN on Crushing so I said "I'll try to forget about the story and then I'll play it again in the future". Too bad when I started my Crushing run my old 60Gb got YLOD'ed and I lost the savegame. Anyway during the PSN manteinance I played it again on Hard and, FINALLY, I made the Crushing difficulty too. One of the best games out there. I can't wait for the third installement of this series.
WHITE KNIGHT CHRONICLES II
Date of Platinum: 8th Sep 2011
10 6 8 1 (100%)
Well, I really couldn't miss this game. I liked the first one and I bought this one on release date. It's a good hybrid game and Level5 improved it a lot. Too bad we Europeans aren't getting a good support for it, that's why I rushed the Platinum at a certain point because I was sick of doing the same things over and over just because the publisher (SCEE) is too lazy to release the new quests and stuffs. Easy one anyway.
Date of Platinum: 20th Sep 2011
37 11 1 1 (100%)
I got this thanks to PSN Welcome Back Program. I never played it before and I've been surprised by the quality of this game. Although it's old and you can see it in every action performed, it's been a nice game to play right after WKC II. It took me like a week to Platinum this game, it wasn't hard at all, I only had some problems with a few stunts but I got them done in a few tries. I'll definitely get the second one when I'll find it cheap.
UNCHARTED 3: DRAKE'S DECEPTION
Date of Platinum: 03rd Dec 2011
43 10 1 1 (100%)
I always wondered whether it would have been possible to create a better game than Uncharted 2 or not. Well, Naughty Dogs' guys made it possible. Uncharted 3 is one step above the first chapters in everything. But.. it's sooooo EASY! Damn it, I'd spent tons of hours trying to finish Drake's Fortune and Among Thieves on Crushing difficulty and I made through this one like I had set the Easy difficulty on! It was harder on Hard for me LOL...
NEED FOR SPEED: HOT PURSUIT
Date of Platinum: 06th Dec 2011
38 10 2 1 (72%)
I like to play arcade racings from time to time and after Blur I needed a new one. It's good but not really easy. I'd a few troubles getting the gold on every event as being a Racer. Anyway I focused on online trophies first and then I worked on the Cop career. It was so easy compared to the Racer one. BTW it helped me improving my driving skills and I finished both careers in a couple of days.
CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE 3
Date of Platinum: 07th Dec 2011
37 12 1 1 (100%)
I wasn't so attracted by this game at all but my bro bought it and I started playing it. The story is very interesting and not really hard to complete on Veteran while the Spec Ops (both Missions & Surviving) were quite challenging to me. I hope they'll fix some things here and there in the online mode because it's not good to play like MW2 has been to me.
Date of Platinum: 19th Mar 2012
21 8 5 1 (98%)
I made it! haha It was very hard to complete this game because I couldn't find anyone to play the Co-Op mode with... and, after three playthrough alone, I wouldn't do it on my own with two controllers. By the way, this game is very cool, quite hard on Morbid but Grenate Launcher and Shotgun were the key to beat it. I'm still wondering if I should get the DLC and so complete it to the 100%...

I loved the first one so I thought I'd to play this as well. Since, for the first two weeks from the release date, its price was set at only 8€ I got this very quick and I was surprised by how they made it so easy to Platinize. I couldn't believe myself when I got this in like 5 hours.. You don't even need to finish the game in order to get the Platinum Trophy for this... how strange. By the way, the devs made it look way better than the first one and the mechanics are good too.
24 5 2 0 (16%)
I got this as a X-Mas gift from my bro, I love it. I just need to complete 4 Co-Op missions on Hard (and get their secondary trophies as well) and another trophy (the perfect run on a Jet) to Platinize it. I've bought the DLC Back2Karkand too but it won't be easy to get the 100% since I suck at Jet flying haha.
GRAND THEFT AUTO IV
34 3 1 0 (53%)
I started playing this game again since I found on another website someone to play the multiplayer with. Now I'm killing the pigeons and I'm trying to find the last stunt I do miss to get the trophy. Then I'll focus on the multiplayer part of this game... who knows, I might get the Platinum at the end...
18 1 0 0 (28%)
I bought this the game they released it because almost all my PSN friends were playing it. It's quite good but not easy at all! I'm waiting a friend to keep on playing this because, right now, no one else of my friends is playing it..
LOST PLANET 2
6 0 0 0 (8%)
I always wanted to play this game and I bought it at low price someday in January. I played it a bit, it's not bad at all, a good TPS, but I had other games to play and I left it. I read it's quite time consuming to Platinize, I'll try to get it but I'm not sure at all...
BATTLEFIELD: BAD COMPANY
30 4 2 0 (71%)
I've bought and started this game once i've finally got the platinum on the second chapter. I'm focusing on the online since we don't know how much more time the servers will stay up. It's totally different from Bad Company 2 and I really don't like how they made those maps so huge. Anyway, the 10k kills are too much for me, so no platinum here.
5 0 0 0 (3%)
I really hate this game. I think it just sucks. I should be hard on drugs or desperate for trophies to keep playing it. I think it will never happen.
LITTLE BIG PLANET
5 0 0 0 (5%)
Everyone was hyped from this game and I wanted to play a new platform game so I got this from a friend and started it. I think it's not my genre. I suck terribly at it, I can't even finish the 3rd or 4th (i don't remember) chapter in the story mode... I'll keep it in my collection but I think I won't ever play it.
24 9 0 0 (60%)
This is one of my brother's games, he bought it and started to play it on my account before I made him one. He will never complete it and I don't like bastekball, end of the story.

One day my cousin came home to play this game with my bro, they did it on my account so that's why I have the 12% here... Another game I won't buy just to get a platinum.

Nice game! I loved it! I had to boost myself the online matches switching controllers' numbers because almost no one is playing it right now...

I loved this game! As i stated in the CoD Classic section, I don't really like WW games but this was really good! I was doing pretty good too, so it wasn't that hard to me to complete it 100%.

I love the Final Fantasy series so I gave this a try. I bought it right after completing Savage Moon so I was on a Tower Defensing mode! Nice game, quite challenging tho.
DUNGEON HUNTER: ALLIANCE
17 2 0
Finally a Diablo looking game on PS3! I really liked it and it's bad there aren't so many like this one. Not really easy, I had some problems finishing the game with 3 other players because, trust me, the final battle at max level is CRAZY HARD.
LARA CROFT AND THE GUARDIAN OF LIGHT
7 4 1
I finally managed to play this game again after a long break caused by WKC II. Well, it is a very very nice game. The challenges aren't easy but it's not been hard at all to 100% it. I wish it was longer...
LINGER IN SHADOWS
11 5 0
I got this mainly for the 16 trophies at low price, nothing much else to say. It's just some kind of benchmark to show the PS3 potentials or something like that. I wouldn't do it again now...
RAG DOLL KUNG FU: FISTS OF PLASTIC

Free trophies. I got this for free thanks to some promotion on the PSN USA even tho I don't like fighting game at all. Somehow I found the will to get all the trophies.

I loved this Tower Defensing game. Some levels were quite hard to complete and I had to watch a few videos to complete them. Anyway, I completed the DLC too.
VANDAL HEARTS: FLAMES OF JUDGMENT

Tactical JRPG here! I loved Final Fantasy Tactics back in the days on my PS1 first and on my PSP then. This one was quite good looking and it was worth the buy. Nice game, a little too short tho. Easy trophies btw.
C&C RED ALERT 3: COMMANDER'S CHALLENGE

I bought this right after I got the Red Alert 3 platinum. This IS much harder than the retail game. I left it and I just have to find the will to try again and again the missions.

I really loved this game. It reminds me of the old days. Anyway I really CAN'T get that Cannon Happy trophy. I tried countless times. Any tip is welcomed.

Really, really, really nice game here! It was nice to play this.. SEGA made a shooting gem. I miss the DLC 'Cold Strike' and the Mega Kill Combo trophy for 100%. Even tho I read it is bugged and it's doable deleting the game files, I can't get it...
14 2 0 (85%)
This game has the best OST I've heard in a while. Beside that it's so good to play. No 100% here because the boss run and the 10 millions points trophies are too much challenging for me
SUPER STARDUST HD
7 4 1 (63%)
Nice shooting game! I bought this on a friend advice, here too there are trophies I really can't get.
These are the games I'm waiting for or I've to get as cheap as I can. They are in order of importance to me, of course.
Well I really like jRPGs so this will be a buy for me as soon as I can find it very cheap anywhere...
Hack'n'Slash on PS3. Period.
Final Fantasy XIII it's been for me a good chapter after the very big disappointment I had with the 12th on my PS2. I'll get this spin-off for sure.
As far as I've seen from news this will be the biggest Final Fantasy project ever (right after the 7th chapter, of course). I won't miss it!
I love RTS and I played the demo. It looks very good even tho it wasn't that easy to play... I'll get this when I'll find it at low price.
I played the first two and I'll get the third chapter as soon as I'll find it cheap.
Just as above
It's not a priority to me but this game seems huge. I'll try to get it.
I love action games and everyone is telling me how Darksiders is a very good one. I'm curious and I'm trying to get it as cheap as I can...
I really enjoyed Demon's Souls the last year and I'm looking forward to this. I won't get it on day one tho.
Just as I said for Darksiders, everyone is telling me how Nier is good. I'll get it sooner or later...
So guys, I'm stuck with a few games which I may need your help... Here is what I need at the moment:
- Any tip or hint on how to get the last Heavy Weapon trophy I'm missing for 100% (Cannon Happy). I tried countless times and I always fail.
- Anyone who wants to play Little Big Planet and/or Lost Planet 2 and/or GTA IV online with me is well accepted
