Trophy Hunt – August 16

Gaming_Cave.jpg

Not much exciting on the hunt this week. Managed to knock out Code: Realize – Boquet of Rainbows, though was bored to tears by it as I discovered it’s just a compilation of the first two Vita games with nothing new to offer. Ah well, another Platinum for the case, at least, right?

Also dredged through the “games I downloaded when they were cheap and never bothered with” list, finishing off Poltergeist: A Pixelated Horror and The Coma: Recut. Knocked out as much as I think I can of Dead Island: Riptide and Dead Rising; for Riptide, there’s some online-only co-op trophies that I acknowledge I’ll never get, and finding the rest of the collectibles is something I just can’t force myself to do right now. The controls and mechanics are just terrible, and having to recover from death every six steps isn’t my idea of a good time. So far as Dead Rising goes, the “Gourmet” trophy seems to have glitched out – I’ve eaten everything in the mall, using a checklist, three times now, still isn’t popping – “Savior” and “Transmissionary” are things I do not possess the patience for (the AI’s behavior and the twitchy controls conspire to make me break controllers and fail those two trophies repeatedly) and I really don’t have the desire to sit around for 14 hours to hit “7 Day Survivor.” Otherwise, that list is done.

Still working on Doom, trying to kick out the multiplayer trophies. All that’s left there is levelling up to a point where I can equip a piece of Cyberdemon armor. Then I can turn my attention to the campaign and bliz through that and be done. Yay.

Lastly, started on Horizon Chase Turbo – which is the Rad Racer sequel we never knew we needed until we played it – and Super Neptunia RPG – which is the (slightly broken) Valkyrie Profile sequel we always wanted and never got. Probably have those two kicked out by next week, but we’ll see how it goes.

Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms remains the bane of my existence, but I will have that bloody Platinum soon. At worst, there’s only 75 more free play runs (yes, I’m keeping track) before it pops. Hopefully. If it doesn’t glitch. Ugh.

If you want to stalk me and see how it’s going, you can follow me on PSN (as Ashande), or you can click the pretty trophy card right here:

Until next time, folks!

Trophy Hunt, August 9th

Gaming_Cave.jpg

The hunt continues. In a constant bid to inflate my e-ego, there are always more trophies to be earned, more imaginary accolades to set on the shelf. Some weeks, the chase is akin to Godzilla storming through the middle of Tokyo. Wrecked games everywhere, hundreds of little “ding” noises to signify accomplishments.

This was not that sort of week. I did finally put The Coma: Recut to bed, which was far more stressful than it needed to be – the last chunk of the game suffers from a severe lack of save points, and given the random nature of your pursuer, bad controls, and less-than-functional stealth mechanics, I ended up repeating the same 20 minute sequence around forty times, instead of the twice (once for each major ending) it should have taken. But it’s done. Beyond that, not much progress. Some picking at Dead Island: Riptide (why I bother, given that there are several Online-only trophies required for the Platinum, that I know full well I’ll never get, and given that the game is utter shite on top of it, I don’t know), still trying to level up in Doom (gotta wear that Cyberdemon armor and get 10 Spectre kills for the sweet, sweet, Golds, yo,) and puttering about in Judgment (which, like all Yakuza games, is 100+ hours of doing random crap for the lulz, after which you may receive a trophy.)

GameFly is supposed to be delivering Code: Realize: Bouquet of Rainbows today, so should be ticking some trophies off on that one, at least. And I could always go back and actually finish Game of Thrones to mark up a fresh Platinum if I really hated myself. (As an aside, GoT suffers from the same problem the show and the books have: somehow they take a story all about rape, incest, murder, war, zombies and ancient gods and make it dull as all hell. I don’t know how they manage that.)

Now if I could just manage to break into the top 2,000 in the country rankings… (I actually managed to hit 1997 for an hour or two, but then the usual flood of $3 trophy farm games with multiple stacks hit, the usual suspects raped them in two hours, and back into the 2,000s I went. Le sigh.)

If you want to stalk my progress, you can hunt me down on PSN as Ashande. Sometimes I stream my games, which can be found right here on Twitch.

Hope everyone’s weekend goes well, and if you’ve got suggestions for games to assault for their trophies (or see something on my list you’re having trouble with), let me know down below!
