    Good luck on Vanquish. I still have it sitting here unopened but don't really feel the desire to play it. Actually, I barely feel the desire to play any game at the moment but that's another story altogether.

Comparing it to Square's classic Chrono Trigger where the time travelling storyline is well made, FF XIII-2 is not as great as that one. I'm not gonna spoil the ending but for the first time in my life, among all the FF games I played, the ending of FF XIII-2 is not that satisfying. I didn't like the ending on this one, my expression is just like "WTF just happened!?".

    Anyway the gameplay makes up for the storyline. It is still as enjoyable as XIII and the Monster taming system is a good addition imo.
    Though there's another problem here, the game is too easy. The battles weren't that challenging and even the ones I was expecting as "super-bosses" weren't that strong. The powerful Long Gui from FF XIII was toned down. It doesn't deal a lot of damage compared before and it can be taken down in under 2-3 minutes. Raspatil and Yomi were also easy to take down as well. I wish there's a powerful monster DLC in the future which I can consider as a super boss.

    As for trophies, it's also easy. No grinding needed as there's sufficient CP given to you if you go collecting all the 160 fragments. I had around 90000 extra CP when I maxed out all the roles of Serah and Noel. Well I guess that's it, this is quite long

    All right Happy Valentines to everyone
    Congrats on the Plat, Raven

    Congratulations on this achievement. I look forward to pick up Final Fantasy XIII for my 10th platinum, and then I should buy this title. I'm actually seeing your progress, and I'm liking it.

    Also, good luck on Vanquish, heard that one is really hard.

Kerwan was bugging me before to try out this game and so I read different reviews (including Kerwan's) about Vanquish and I took a look at the gameplay and I think it's a great game so I bought it but never tried the game up until now. I am looking forward to the infamous Challenge 6 which is keeping a lot of players from getting the . Well then it's time to play

    Good luck in getting the Vanquish mate.You seem to have made a lot of progress already.Now get your work done before you go back on your computer lol

    round 5 was really troublesome for challenge 4. I think I had to repeat the challenge for around 10 times before I managed to perfect it. Good thing I managed to hit the CV with the explosion of that romanov who has a flamethrower which took out a lot of the CV's life then finishing him off with an RPG. Now I'm down to challenge 6, I gave it a few tries just to know the spawns and to get some practice, I managed to reach up to round 5 at least 3 times but well I failed the mission also, need to think some strategy on that round and on round 4. Hopefully I'll get the plat next Sunday because I have to review now lol

    Finally got it after 19 tries
    I had around 15 tries of practice for Challenge 6 before I went for the real thing, getting pass rounds 1 and 2 are easy if you know how to use the LFE gun well and then go for the spawn points immediately and get the timing right to quickly dispose of the annoying red robots then a combination of HMG and Shotgun to dispose of the bosses on that round. Round 3 requires timing and it's quite long to explain the strategy I used here, this round is probably the second hardest for this challenge because the Romanovs here are capable of sending you to a mission failed screen many times. Round 4 is just a breeze if you manage to dispose of the other robots quickly then unloading 4 rounds of RPG on the scorpion robots then dash melee to finish them. Round 5 is the hardest round because you have to face 2 Bogeys and some rollers.

    I updated the OP with my latest plat and I included my best time for each challenge and I posted the videos which helped me finish Challenge 6

    So what's next for me? Maybe I'll just play Uncharted Golden Abyss for awhile

    Congrats on Vanquish, Raven! How is that game? I haven't really seen enough of it to make a decision on whether I would like it or not.

    It's a great game imo that's why I gave it a 10. It's a fast paced third person shooter with some innovative elements like slowing down time for a limited period and dashing like crazy to avoid some attacks and getting into cover quickly. I had a lot of fun playing Vanquish although the story is quite short. Trophies, 49/51 are easy to get but Tactical Challenger is going to take some practice.

    Good deal. Just read your review and I was always under the impression that it was an FPS...glad it's not as they are not my favorite. I may just have to pick this one up. Have fun with the Vita!

    Big congrats on getting Vanquish platinum, impressive that it only took 19 tries as most have spent a lot more than that.

    thanks dude I thought it will take me a lot more tries than that but I was shocked myself when I managed to do it in 19 tries and got stunned for a couple of minutes saying that "Did I just manage to beat it?! Seriously!?"

    I think I might have to go for Challenge 6 again and try to beat it in under 10 minutes
