Iím 22 years old and Iíve been gaming since I bought my first Gameboy when I was 4. I've been posting on this site for around 3 years. I was really into trophy hunting, but got burned out a bit.
Nonetheless, I finally found the joy of trophy hunting yet again However, Iíll be using this new PSN since Iíll be moving back home when school is finished and thereís no way Iím using a North American credit card to buy stuff in the Asia PS store. Though, I canít bring my PS3 along with me, Iíll be using my Vita instead and HOPEFULLY, the PS4 very soon! SO, my journey of amassing platinums start again, but this time Iím gonna try to keep a perfect platinum streak!

As a massive fan of the FF series, I felt that this was a great game with a decent story line (although some problems...). I also played through both Lightning DLCs as soon as I could, so I had the most powerful Commando and Ravager in the game at the start!! The gameplay mechanics are very similar to those of FFXIII, but becomes a bit more complicated when developing the characters. The graphics are just what you would expect from a FF game (:aweseome The music of this game is wonderful as well, sets the mood perfectly for some levels.
There were some gripes I have with the game, but nothing gamebreaking, the biggest being the equipment system. I felt, when compared to FFXIII, the equipment restrictions placed makes it so you solely boost strength on Noel and magic on Serah and you can blaze through the game whereas in FFXIII, you had to figure out which equipment should be equipped for certain boss fights and forgo the additional stats. 1 other option I wasnít a fan of was the ability to set the game into Easy mode. This didnít affect me directly, but with that option, it felt like the ďspiritĒ of FF was gone in a way (a.k.a. grind for a bit first and explore).
Hardest Trophy Tip: Work on all the side quests whenever possible before finishing the game and committing all your time to fragment hunting. Like the film reels in L.A. Noire, you want to progressively work on it throughout the game which will a) level your crystarium and b) to make it feel much much less of a grind at the end. For the Lucky Coin fragment, finish Serendipitous first (you DO NOT want to grind a net gain of 10,000 coins after losing A LOT in the slots) then get ~20,000 coins and rubber band your controller on L1 the entire night and you should have it upon waking up.
Great narrarative game and Iíve appreciated it more on my second playthrough after watching ďExtra CreditsĒ on youtube I really enjoyed the storyline especially the crimes on the homicide desk where everything seems to tie together with the atmosphere that was created during each case which was a very immersive experience. I do have a few gripes with the game though, but nothing game-breaking Iím not really a car guy especially classic cars...so every car in this game felt the same to me, clunky and slow. The radio stations played, what I assume to be music that was played back then which is good, but not really my cup of tea xD No jumping is painful in some situations especially when hunting for 100%, but makes up for it for being able to drive on the sidewalk without cops getting on your case!! Also, if youíre like me and donít have Miles on the Clock by the end of the game and after getting 100%, grab your favorite partner, for me it was Brad Pi...I mean Bekowski, and just hit cars to listen to their scared screams while grinding for that!
Hardest Trophy Tip: Follow a collectibles guide. Seriously. I would also break it into parts and hunt down 1/5 of each category while on each desk, so you donít have to power through it postgame all at once. This way, it feels less of a grind than it actually is.
A must have on the PS Vita as it takes advantage of the six-axis controls on the Vita and the touch screen and does it well. The touch screen features are pretty useful as they make things faster for you, the player. Setting waypoints, changing menus, things that will make the experience in the game easier. The story is a bit short and there are some loose ends that are not explained in the story, but I heard theyíre making a sequel, so pretty excited about that I wouldíve given this game a 10/10, but the camera angles sometimes is the difference between a gold rating in challenges and a silver rating and trust me when I say, the camera angle screw you out of that gold rating A LOT Nonetheless, once you get used to the controls, the game is pretty fun and challenges become a lot more enjoyable. Something I personally am bitter about is I bought every DLC for this game on my old account, but is non-transferrable to my new account
Hardest Trophy Tip: Practice again and again until you get the hang of the controls and know the course/spawns well. You donít have to wait until postgame to get gold in every challenge, although that is a lot easier. I did every challenge as they become available and always upgraded Gravity Gauge whenever I can along with the power I need for the challenge Iím having trouble with. Doing every challenge as they become available is harder, but the story gets a lot easier and you donít have to go through 20 challenges in a row at the end.
I donít care what anyone says about this game, I found it to be a 10/10 on both playthroughs Iíve done. The story of the Pulse LíCie is, in a way, emotionally touching as they each have their own stories to tell in the days before the Purge and as the story progresses, you get to see how they handle themselves and finally work together to ďdo something.Ē (no spoilers ) Personally, this game was the reason why I purchased my PS3 in the first place as when it was first announced, it was supposed to be a console exclusive After playing this, I canít wait to re-play FFXIII-2 and eventually, Lightning Returns From a trophy perspective, this is a very grindy game and expect it to be at least 80 hours if itís your first playthrough. I platted this game in 65, but thatís because Iíve already done it before and know how not to waste money and as a ďveteranĒ player, the battle system is familiar and easy to take advantage of.
Hardest Trophy Tip: Farm Sacrifices in chapter 13 before finishing the game; Trust me, itís worth it. Yes, eventually youíll hit the cap of 999,999 CP long before you finish upgrading all the items you can (I donít count Dark Matter and Traps since those I would NOT recommend buying for now), but I would rather farm the adamantoise in Eden Plaza (for CP) knowing how many left I have to kill before moving on than indefinitely farm them hoping for a Platinum Ingot. That was the method I used on my first run and that took around 90+ hours versus my 65 hours. I reiterate, farm Perfumes, upgrade all you can THEN farm CP from adamantoises postgame. As a bonus, if youíre lucky, you might be able to purchase a dark matter or two while farming CP.
Probably one of the best games Iíve played so far. The story is beautifully crafted and you really get attached to the characters. [Nanako (your cousin) is the most adorable kid in the world! xD] This is especially true when you get into a relationship with one of them, but if you choose to play the field, thereís a part in the game that forces you to make a decision thatís harder to make than the ending in Mass Effect (Youíll know which part Iím talking about if you played the game). The combat system is turn-based which allows you to strategize how to defeat the enemies with relative ease. The soundtrack is quite beautiful as well and sets the stages perfectly. I would recommend playing the game on Normal to fully enjoy the story as well as the battle system.
Hardest Trophy Tip: Scan, scan, scan all the time. Itís still debated on what counts as a line from Rise; some say she has to appear in the bubble with dialog for it to count, others say whenever you hear her voice in the scanning screen counts as well. Regardless, there are some guides that lists out most of her lines with respect to conditions, health, bosses. I highly suggest you print these out or at least download a copy and cross them out to keep track of your progress. Personally, I didnít know where I got mine since I think I was watching something on youtube while grinding this, but it should have been around the Heaven stage.
When I saw that this game was based in HK, I knew I would be buying this almost instantly! xD Itís very comparable to GTA4 and SR3 as a sandbox game with the difference that, guns are almost non-existent. However, youíre given lots of martial arts combos that allows you to take down enemies quickly and painlessly. They give you a very nice feature called action hijack that allows you to leap car to car stealing them as you go. The environment they created is just beautiful. With the exception of being shrunk down, crazy amounts of CCTVs, gang members on every corner, and the replacement of the SDU with a SWAT team, the game matches the real thing pretty well.
Hardest Trophy Tip: Youíll get gold on the challenges as you go, but they might require SOME grinding depending on your playstyle. There are good spots to grind out each challenge in the trophy guide, so I would follow that if you must grind. However, I HIGHLY suggest you purchase the Zodiac Island DLC to skip 2 challenges (that gambler challenge is such a pain and really not worth the time spent). The DLC adds 2 easy challenges that can be completed in less than 30 minutes and the DLC itself is pretty fun too (actually stronger and harder to fight enemies lol). The $5 is definitely worth the hours of resetting youíll otherwise need.
I learned from this game to never judge a game by its cover art. I think I never gave this game a chance at first because the cover art wasnít very appealing, but glad I finally gave it a try at the end. It combines 2 of my favorite genres, FPS and RPG which is just great! The story isnít the strongest, but the gameplay is really awesome with its bazillions of guns and has smooth controls which is always a must for a shooter. I would change the vehicle controls, though, since it gets hard to turn sometimes. I would highly highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys a super bloody shooter with things exploding and definitely buy the GoTY edition for the DLC. Trophies, this game doesnít have necessarily hard trophies, but have a very grindy trophy near the end.
Hardest Trophy Tip: You can play the game 2 times and it will pop near the end of the second playthrough or you can find a friend and bug them to level you up while he murders high level mobs OR if you just want to rush it, you can use the med station exploit.
I LOVE Disgaea!! Bought this right at release and even though itís a direct port from the PS3 version, I still enjoyed it I enjoyed the story the first time around and it was very fun playing it for the second time as well!! It has a quirky story that makes everything that you think is right is actually wrong ~ *sigh* I wish I can be an honor student by skipping school! The battle system is the same as the old DisgaeasÖwhich is a good thing!! Why change something when itís awesome the way it is!! Though this game is not for the light-hearted JRPG fan ~ you have to know coming into this, you are prepared the grind to level 9999 on multiple characters (which sounds more difficult than it actually is) and get the uber items and stats!! Trophy-wise, NIS toned the difficulty down a bit, but itís still quite hard. Do not expect an easy fast plat if thatís what youíre looking for ~ ~
Hardest Trophy Tip (may contain spoilers): This trophy is half luck and half skill. The map has to be good, you have to have an idea of how bouncing works and the War Galleon pirate ship. If the map has holes in between you and the innocents, you have no chance and should just reset. Get max shoes with boosted movement and go through class world a few times to upgrade movement and throwing range before starting. Once all the prep work is ready, use the characters with the most movement to reach far treasure chests on the first turn and bounce them all back to the ship. On the second turn, you should have most of the treasure chests and at least half of the innocents on the ship. On you last turn, grab everything else and wait for the ding! When your ship leaves.
I was hesitant to buy this game at first since I never played any of the past Saints Rows and havenít heard much about itÖuntil I saw this on RoosterTeeth ~ This game is UNBELIEVABLE!!! Itís sort of like GTA, but more cartoony and way over the top (I think thatís what I like about it ). I would say this is definitely one of the best games Iíve ever played. Professor Genki Reality Climax is an amazing activity and the DLC for it was pretty worth it! Trophy-wise, the platinum isnít too difficult ~ I said Hi-Jack It is the most difficult trophy as Iím terrible with driving in the game
Like all Dynasty Warriors game, itís mostly just mashing the square button as fast as possible while you slaughter your way across the land and become emperor. Iím not a huge fan of this series anymore due to the repetitiveness nature of this game. Though there are different scenarios, they all end with you conquering China in the end. I would recommend picking up a DW that is of the main series (i.e. 7 or 8) to actually get a story or history lesson. From a trophy hunterís point of view, this is a super easy plat.
Hardest Trophy Tip: Play in officer mode, join small kingdoms so they wonít invade other larger kingdoms and just donít defend. You have a 50% of being taken over and just repeat until there are 2 kingdoms left. Choose the one with the least amount of land and just keep simming until thereís one piece of land left. Join the final defence and betray your ruler, win the battle and Ta-da! One scenario down!
