    Thanks for the kind words gents

    Another couple of Plats added overnight - Ratchet Deadlocked and PS All Star Battle Royale on PS3. That brings the total up to 49 and I can knock over the rest of the Vita version of PSA:BR tonight...if I can be bothered. I'm not sure if I want it as my 50th, but in the grand scheme of life it's irrelevant, so game on bitch!

    That'll mean I've reached my New Year's resolution of 50 Plats by the end of the year, though not quite the way I had planned. I wanted to tackle Vanquish, Dragon's Dogma, Skyrim, Mass Effect and Resident Evil 5 but I took the best part of 5 months off gaming mid-year to focus on work and family commitments, so I've made a dash for the line in December with some quick and easy games.

    Next up I'll be completing a couple of non-trophy games in Tools of Destruction and Quest for Booty to keep my Ratchet & Clank anthology going in chronological order. Tools of Destruction was one of my first PS3 games and remains a favourite and it's nice to go back to your roots every now and then and just game for fun.

    Congrats man on your back-to-back win (despite my best efforts)!

    If you're looking for a co-op partner for RE5, hit me up in the new year - unlike Portal 2, I definitely still have my copy!

    Congratulations!

    If you want to shoot for 50 platinums might I recommend Minecraft? I don't know how to do it but apparently you can get the platinum in about an hour.

    I just noticed you said you were looking to start Skyrim and I wanted to give you a heads up. As much as I love my PS3, it is the absolute worst Skyrim experience you can have. If you're like me you'll want to experience everything at your own pace, and the PS3 just doesn't allow for it. i would have a plan in place to rush through the trophies because especially after the 100 hour mark, you're game will suffer greatly. I lost 125+ hours due to corrupt data, and that was mainly from the system freezing every 10-15 minutes. Just wanted to warn you, because I absolutely love the game, but couldn't play it like I wanted.

    Nice work, ant1. RE5 is a blast to play with others, given that hides how awful the game really is, so don't even think about playing it alone .

    Thanks Shem.

    Minecraft is on my radar and although it's a quick Plat, I've still got 9 days up my sleeve and don't need to rush. PSA:BR will be my first Vita Plat, so it's apt that it's my 50th overall.

    Thanks for the heads-up KID. I'm prepared for it, Fallout 3 pulled the same shit, particularly in the DLC. I figure as long as I'm not a gear whore (picking up every single item and storing it massively bloats the save game), I should be ok.

    Just saying from my experience, Skyrim does experience freezing issues VERY late into the game when inventory size and NPC details increase to immense proportions. Thus, like you said, it is best to play the game at a fairly moderate to fast pace, and sell only what you do not need. Do not store excess items too much into chests, but keep them mostly clear, but also minimize what you do to NPCs (etc. killing them and leaving their bodies all over the place - this also bloats the save file). Still, I managed to enjoy it very much as a massive sandbox RPG so I doubt the experience will leave you wanting too. One more tip, restart the game every 2 (or 1) hours or so to reset its memory cache; it works especially for the freezes that you will encounter much later. Have fun!

    Cheers big, or small ears. I don't know...we've never met.

    PSA on Vita's not quite there. About 8 more runs through the Arcade mode and that goose is cooked. I can't say I overly enjoy the process, especially with the weaker characters on the roster, but I take solace in being able to delete it once I'm done.

    I've been doing Arcade mode sporadically while playing Tools of Destruction. I've got today all to myself - no crying babies, no screaming kids, no nagging wife and no clients crawling up my arse. Pure. Gaming. Bliss.

    Incidentally, 3000 posts...ding!...site Plat.

    And Playstation All Star Battle Royale on Vita makes Plat #50 - goal achieved for 2013

    It turns out I could have set the bar higher given I took from June to November off trophy hunting. I'm thinking 75 to 80 Plats by this time next year

    Congrats on the big platinum milestone! Are you planning on taking the rest of the year off or are you going to try for 51 plats before 2014?

    Thanks Shem.

    December's the only time of the year when I really get to game, so I reckon I can squeeze out one or two more before 2014 hits.

    I'm on the final level of Tools of Destruction, then onto Quest for Booty, both of which I can probably finish off tonight, then back onto the trophies with A Crack in Time. Depending how quickly I get that done, Into the Nexus looks pretty quick and easy, as do All 4 One, Q-Force and PS Move Heroes.

    I should have all Ratchet & Clank games finished within the next two or three weeks before polishing off the Sly Cooper series with another 3 quick Plats and moving onto Jak & Daxter for another 6 Plats. So by the end of January, I should have another 8 to 14 Plats done and dusted.

    Sounds good. I'll be playing A41 after I wrap up ACIT and ITN, which shouldn't take more than a week.

    I'm on a platforming bender for the next month or two, but then I'll get serious again and will be looking to do Resident Evil 5 co-op, so pencil me in for late Feb.

    If you're going to beat the game on Professional mode,having a human partner is a must.
    Don't even think about going in alone (you will die a lot )

    Well shit. I had a chance to beat you last year (should have ) but congrats on the CLotY this year. Terminal has always had a sneaky tidy and visually appealing list. Definitely a great contender.

    I like the new ideas and it makes me want to learn graphic design shit so I can come up with something...better I almost canned my list but remembered why I started it in the first place. So needless to say I'm making a return.

    Congrats on the milestone as well! I hope you have a great Christmas friend and I'm sure I'll be back to congratulate you on another here soon

    Congrats on getting 50 plats mate and reaching your goal, awesome stuff! Good luck in busting out all them other plats too man, but be warned about the Jak 2 plat, and Jak 3 for that matter. If you go for the orbs legit, they will take a shit load of time, particularly 2 if memory serves. Either way, have fun and all the best to you and your family for the holidays mate, have a good one

    Be warned - I might actually put some effort into the CL this year DP so it ain't gonna be easy

    Merry Xmas to you too. Having kids totally changes one's perspective on the whole Christmas rort and it becomes less about accumulating stuff and more about celebrating family.

    Yep, the shortcut takes hours off the game. I played through 2 and 3 legit, getting as many orbs as I could along the way, and saved the easy missions for post game orb grinding.
