Name Myers Age 19 Location Illinois A little about me I'm just your typical college kid. I go to the University of Illinois, majoring in Molecular and Cellular Biology, hoping to go on and become an Optometrist some day. I'm a big sports fan, I cheer for the Illinois Fighting Illini (obviously), the St Louis Cardinals, and the New England Patriots. I like reading manga as you can see from my banners. Any other questions just ask Videogame History I've been playing videogames since my cousin gave me her old Super Nintendo. I used to play Super Mario Bros, Donkey Kong, and Luigi's Island all the time. Then I got a Gameboy Advance (the original one without the backlight) and I kept playing Mario games but I also got my first Pokemon game. I've put somewhere around 1 or 2 thousand hours into all of my Pokemon games.. My brothers and I all got a PS2 my fourth grade year and I've been a Playstation fan ever since I got my first PS3 four years ago and that would probably be the best present I've gotten for Christmas. That PS3's Blu Ray drive quit on it 2 years ago, so my brothers and I got the 320gb PS3 + Move bundle for Christmas that year Trophy History My fixation with trophies didn't really start until about November/December of 2010. I realized how much I enjoyed completing random/weird/difficult tasks in-game to get a trophy and started going after them. I got my first plat in January of 2011 and quickly got another 3 by February. At the end of March a friend of mine got me to make the horrible decision of downloading World of Warcraft. I continued to play both WoW and PS3 for about 3 months then my WoW addiction overtook me and I quit playing PS3 until late April of 2012. Going away to college pretty much stopped my PS3 playing, but this summer I plan on going after some more trophies. And this next year at college, I will have more time to play videogames. Favorite Videogames Uncharted series, Assassin's Creed series, inFAMOUS, Sly Cooper series, Jak & Daxter series, LittleBigPlanet, Pokemon, God of War series, & Starcraft 2

1. Sly Cooper and the Thevius Raccoonus
Date: January 16th, 2011
I actually didn't play this one back on the PS2 so I was glad I got to play it. Overall it's a great game but very easy. Sometimes I wish I would've gotten a harder plat for my first one but oh well.
2. Sly 2: Band of Thieves
Date: February 1st, 2011
This was one of my first games on PS2 and I remember beating it multiple times, so this was a great nostalgic platinum for me. I might go back and play this one again sometime
3. Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves
Date: February 6th, 2011
I personally thought this was the best Sly game out of all 3. I loved playing as the other characters and loved the upgrades for Sly, Bentley, & Murray. Looking forward to Sly 4!
4. Assassin's Creed II
Date: February 12th, 2011
I love the Assassin's Creed franchise. And after playing through this entire game I realized I was extremely close to the platinum. I had just about everything but the feathers. I actually think I was gonna go for the platinum almost a year before this but then got bored with feather gathering A great game, highly recommend it!
Date: April 2nd, 2011
Where to start? Well I love LBP. It reminds me of a more advanced (and better) Mario in the level designs. For the creative there are endless possibilities and I love playing the user-created levels. I found this plat to be a fun challenge, there were a couple of times I wanted to break something when going for my ace playthrough but overall it was fun. If you haven't played this game, go buy it right now!
6. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Date: April 25th, 2011
To begin with, I'm so glad I borrowed this game from my cousin. It instantly became my favorite PS3 and possibly favorite videogame of all-time. The story is incredible and the gameplay is extremely fun. My crushing playthrough was frustrating but I enjoyed the story just as much the second time. If you haven't played this game/series yet go do so now because you won't regret it.
7. MX vs. ATV Alive
Date: May 22nd, 2011
I started playing this series on the PS2 with my brothers. I used to ride dirt bikes so this was always a fun series to play. By playing this game I was skipping I think 2 in the series so a lot had changed for me. The campaign had some decent tracks and the controls were alright. The online was fun and frustrating at the same time. It was dominated by good racers so if you were new, you were going to get last everytime. Overall this game is decent and I'd say it's worth buying cheap if you like ATV or dirt bike racing games. Also check out my guide for this game on this site
8. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
Date: June 5th, 2011
The sequel to my favorite PS3 game to date. After hearing so much about it from people around the site I had high expectations. And this game didn't disappoint. It was simply amazing. Beautiful graphics, great story, and awesome gameplay. The actual trophies were fun to get, too. Well besides my crushing playthrough (frustrating as hell but I eventually got through it.) This series is amazing and you aren't a Playstation fan if you haven't played Uncharted.
9. Need for Speed: Undercover
Date: April 26th, 2012
This game reminds me of Carbon in a lot of ways and I love it for that. I love the open world environment and I love the customization. The actual racing in the game is fun, although fairly easy. For those reasons I would rate it 10/10 because that's my favorite type of racing game. But for all of the damn glitches I had to drop my rating. I hated the random lags/loading errors in the middle of the race. And the online trophy glitches would've been hell if I wouldn't have been able to just leave it on "Cops n Robbers." Overall if you love NFS you'll enjoy this game, but I don't recommend paying much for it
10. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
Date: May 21, 2012
To begin with, I love the Assasin's Creed series and this game's story mode didn't let me down. The story was great (Ezio is awesome), the gameplay was fun (love double assassinating from a rooftop ), and the graphics were great. Overall the single player trophies were quite easy, especially with a flag map. Now I'm not sure how I feel about the multiplayer. While leveling to 50, I enjoyed it, it was really really entertaining once you got the hang of it. Now the trophies on the hand killed me, well actually only Abstergo Employee of the Month. The others I obtained without trying on my way to level 50. AEOTM I had to boost with tons of people. First to get a triple escape, then I thought I needed Extreme Variety again (which I already had), then I finally just went for the only End bonus I didn't have which was Untouchable. The trophy guide says End Bonuses don't matter but they did for me, once I got Untouchable I got AEOTM and my plat . To conclude, if you enjoyed the first two (or just love asassination kills) then pick this game up, you won't regret it. The plat may be tough but it was worth it for me.
On another note, this plat was #10 (small milestone) and trophy #700 (another little milestone)
11. Trine 2
Date: May 21, 2012
Okay so I downloaded this game from PS Plus solely for the trophies, yes I know that that's kind of whorish. Although this platinum was a breeze, I did enjoy this game. I haven't played Trine 1, although I might look into it now, but I enjoyed the gameplay and levels. If you have PS Plus this is definitely worth a download and not just for the trophies.
Date: June 13, 2012
Really glad I got around to playing this game. It's an amazing game with great graphics, fun gameplay, and good controls. Honestly, I'm glad I was required to play 2 playthroughs for the plat because both of them were unique and fun. Both sides had some gut-wrenching twists to the plot that had me pissed off and swearing at the TV.. If you are worried about the blast shards, I recommend starting from the beginning with a printed map and marking off each shard (and dead drop) you find right as you find it. I did this and didn't have a problem at all . Buy/download this game as soon as you can. This game is a great addition to the PS Exclusives. Can't wait to play inFamous 2 through PS+
13. Modnation Racers
Date: June 6, 2012
To begin, I gave this an 8 rating based on the majority of the game, the career, creation, etc. BUT the online is spotty and needs work that it will never get. I had so many problems connecting to friends to race that I couldn't even boost wins (yeah, I'm that good that I just got them legitmately .) Anyways, I joined a boosting group on this site back in March 2011 to get the 250k create xp and level 30 trophies. Without that group I wouldn't even be close to the platinum. A few weeks ago, I started the career races and that's when I really started to enjoy the game. I love racing around, drifting, jumping, spinning, and knocking the shit out of my opponents. Some of the challenges were actually pretty hard to get, I had to google/youtube a few of them. The tokens were all easily obtained except for a few. The lap times were easy once I realized that if you let them lap you it'd guarantee you got the boost weapon and I used that to my advantage. Then came online, I found a friend to boost with and we got some of the easy trophies done, then when we went to boost wins a few days later, neither of us could connect, tried for days and eventually just gave up. So I would join XP lobbies and if there were any "experts" (people who play everyday, with 1,000+ wins) I'd leave and try again. I found enough lobbies full of newbs that I was able to get my 100 wins after a few days. Finally I did the DLC trophies (if you have $15 and enjoy the game, I highly recommend them as they are great tracks.) They didn't really give me any trouble as I just used additional controllers for the weapon ones. Overall this is a great game and I would say it's definitely worth a try if you're into arcade racers (think Mario Kart) and I would say it's worth at least $25, any cheaper and it's a bargain.
13. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time
Date: May 28th, 2013
This is the 4th game in the Sly Cooper series and in my opinion it's another great addition to it. It has the same feel as the first 3 and has a pretty good story to it. The trophies aren't too bad, besides having 41 bronze. There are a couple tricky ones that might take a few tries, and of course there are the collection ones that will take you a while. Overall, if you enjoyed the first 3 games I definitely recommend this one
Bioshock I just made it to the point of no return at the end of my first playthrough. I'm gonna go back and grab the diaries and tonics I missed and clean up a few of the other trophies. Then on to I Chose The Impossible playthrough!
Game Trophies Comments Borderlands 17/81 - 21% I've played maybe 2 or 3 hours into the game and I plan on picking it back up soon. Batman: Arkham Asylum 6/48 - 13% I heard this is a great game and I look forward to playing it. Skyrim 4/51 - 8% I've started playing this a little bit, not too far. I think this will be a game I play from time to time but don't be too much effort into the trophies. Red Dead Redemption 8/91 - 9% I spent an entire triple XP weekend leveling, so I have Legendary. I'm going to get the campaign done and then finish up the online trophies. Can't wait to play this again. God of War 27/36 - 75% I love this series and look forward to finishing/platting all 3 of them.
Game Trophies Comments Battlefield: Bad Company 2 1/73 - 1% My brother and I have played this online together a little bit. It has great graphics and everything but it's too slow paced for me. I might go through the campaign sometime, though. Bioshock 2 8/69 - 12% I plan on at least playing this game after I play/plat Bioshock. I will probably try to get to level 40 at least in the near future just so I don't get stranded with closed servers. Call of Duty: Black Ops 26/71 - 37% This would've been my first plat had it not been for the veteran trophy glitches, very frustrating getting through 4 or 5 painstaking levels and not get the trophies for it. I might come back after MW2 & 3. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 22/51 - 43% I just need to do a veteran playthrough and spec ops for this plat. I love the MW side of CoD so this should be enjoyable. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 0/57 - 0% I've only played this online with friends and I love it. I plan on platting it after Modern Warfare 2 gets platted. Call of Duty: World at War 12/65 - 19% I love the zombies on this game, I used to play them for hours on end. I wouldn't mind going back and getting the zombie trophies but veteran is just too daunting for me. Maybe someday but probably not. Dead Nation 5/41 - 12% I downloaded this from the Welcome Back package and from what I played it was pretty fun. I would like to eventually go back and plat it. DJ Hero 13/51 - 26% I would love to add this plat to my collection but I'm not good enough to 5 star every mix on expert. The Fight 1/28 - 4% A game I got with PS Move. For some reason, the dodging didn't work right for me so it was harder than it should've been. I doubt I ever play it again. God of War II 28/35 - 80% Love the game and definitely plan on platting this soon. Shouldn't be too hard either. God of War III 28/36 - 78% This game is amazing and it's a high priority to plat soon. Gran Turismo 5 3/59 - 5% I got this game for Christmas after it came out. It's a great game if you're into simulators but I'm not. Would be a very impressive plat, though. MLB 09 The Show 0/30 - 0% I played a few games with a friend one night back when I first created this PSN account. The online servers are shut down so plat is out of the question and don't feel like playing it ever again. Rock Band 2 3/51 - 6% I'll never plat this game but I'm sure I'll pick it up to play with family or friends from time to time. The Shoot 3/45 - 7% Another game I got with PS Move, and it's a pretty fun game. I'm not sure how hard the platinum is but it might be a good one to get. Skate 3 4/69 - 6% Started playing this randomly one night. Decent game, might get around to platting it someday. Sports Champions 6/43 - 14% Got this with our PS3 + Move bundle. I think Move is awesome but most of the time I'd rather just sit down and play. I'd like to plat this, just don't see myself doing it. WipEout HD 3/51 - 6% Another Welcome Back game that I started a long time ago. This game is fun to play but I'm not a good enough racing gamer to plat this.
