Hi all,

Started playing Borderlands 2, thanks to playstation+, as it’s a free download, yes the full game, and it’s way better than the first one. More quests, better storyline, more weapons, more enemies and even bigger, very cool.  While i’m playing this one, if anyone wants to join me in storyline or sidequests, feel free to contact me. Also if any of you need help on any quests then again feel free to invite me to your session, my online ID is RPG_Reviewer, i’m level 22 and playing as the assassin.

 

I believe i’m about half way through the story but as it gets more difficult then I go back to clear up all the past sidequests, then continue. I’m also trying to get the platinum trophy for this one so am trying to complete everything if that’s any help to any of you who want to join me.  That’s about it for now, see you on the battlefield, lol.

Hi all,

I’ve recently been playing games that are free with the playstation plus membership, as you recall from my previous post one such game is the great Dragons Dogma: Dark Arisen but my latest game is a racing game which is very good fun, Grid 2. I’ve got around 50% of the trophies for it and they are pretty easy ones, there is also some racing online which i’ve been playing, again very good fun, especially the demolition pack that you also get free.  All in all this last 3 months of PS+ has been more than worth it and on top of that they have just given us Borderlands 2, another great game.

If anyone has Grid 2 and is currently playing it or in need of some help I will have it for another 3 or 4 days so feel free to join me or send a friend request and i’ll accept you and help you out.

Hi all,

Yet again it’s been awhile since my last post, been busy doing lots of stuff but I have managed to still get some game time in. My latest game is Dragons Dogma: Dark Arisen. This game is quite huge and it has a little of skyrim, assassins creed type games, yet it’s got it’s own uniqueness about it.  Very open world, the story can be completed fairly quickly if that is all you do but if you decide, like me, to explore and do virtually every quest you will be on it quite a while.

 

The story isn’t anything too special but there are a great many attributes that make this game very addictive. You have the main quest,  sub quests or notice board quests, then you have side quests which are not from the notice boards but from individuals in the many different towns.  You have many vocations you can choose from, well actually three main vocations with a sort of sub vocation. An example is, if you choose to be a Strider , like me, you can then choose to be an Assassin, or if you choose Mage, you can then become a Mage Archer etc..very good fun. There are also a multitude of weapon types and variations which can be upgraded dramatically.

 

I’ve played through the storyline about 6 times, mainly to get everything I didn’t get on past playthrough’s  and also to get my levels up high enough to enter the depths of Bitterblack Isle, which is just a crazy place with unique monsters and unique weapons and armor. The creators mentioned you may not want to attempt BitterBlack Isle until you are at least level 50. Personally, I would recommend strongly that you are closer to level 100.  I go down there now to get some upgrades and still find it a challenge to go all the way to the bottom levels and i’m at level 130, I don’t know what the cap is but i’m guessing it’s around 200.

 

This game is free if your a playstation plus member and is definitely worth it if your a fan of games like Elder Scrolls. Happy gaming.

Hi all,

I managed to get 60% of the trophies before having to start over as I managed to glitch the whole game somehow, could be because it was a download, I don’t know.  Anyway I was in the middle of a quest when the game froze, when I came back I couldn’t fast travel anywhere.  Long story short I decided to start over on hard mode as that is a trophy too.  Shame that I had 167 Lorestones out of the 170 needed but i’ll get them again.

I’m actually enjoying playing through a second time, it’s like watching a really good movie second time around, you get to notice all the stuff you missed the first time.  I’m finding that i’m doing all the side quests in order to get my level up high enough to defeat the main quest bosses on the hard mode, it’s a pretty good strategy.  I’m also putting points into the  mage side of things this time around to get the dispel trophy etc…

Well i’m looking forward to playing a good few days on hard mode, it’s a really enjoyable game so if your getting bored of not playing a decent RPG then give it a go, it’s pretty cheap now too.

Hi all,

I decided to get my playstation+ membership back again and much to my amazement they were giving away Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, i’ve been wanting to play this game for some time since trying the demo.  It is a huge game but it is also a huge download, massive in fact, 14 Gigs so it took a good few hours to download and install but it was most definitely worth it.

Will be going for the platinum for this game so i’ll be on it a while, it has a mixture of several other games, most noticeable is a little of Fable, Dishonored, Morrowind as well as a few others, it’s not a copy of any of these games, it’s just that while playing it, it reminds you of these games depending on what your doing at any specific time.  You’ve got a main quest with a ton of side quests.  You can have a choice of several types of play, mage, thief, scout, warrior etc…you can play it stealthily or head on or a mixture of the two, it’s entirely up to you.

You can also change your skills at different points in the game which is also cool, personally I would rather play through the whole game with each choice rather than switch half way through. You have the fast travel ability once you have visited a place once which is very handy as many side quests require you to revisit certain areas.  I’m not going to give away any spoilers but if you like either of the above mentioned games you really should give this one a go, try the demo at least although the demo doesn’t do it justice. If you try the game you will know within half an hour if it’s for you or not, very addictive.

Keep an eye on my facebook account for live trophy updates and how i’m doing.

Hi all,

Haven’t posted in a while due to i’ve been busy when not playing games, most recent game which i’m still playing is Assassins Creed II, I have platinumed this one under my old account so I decided to add it to my new account, and I love this game anyway. I’m at 70% trophies after just three days but i’ll probably end up spending a few days just trying to find all the feathers again, lol.  Played a lot of Metal Gear Solid 4 before that, haven’t got the platinum for that yet, not sure I will either as there is one really hard trophy on there. You have to complete the game on the hardest mode in under 5hrs without using any health or special items, and you cannot be detected, virtually impossible for me.

Anyway I just purchased PS+ membership again for the next three months so i’ll probably end up playing Saints Row 3rd which also looks like another good game and i’ll be checking out some of the other freebies for playstation plus members tomorrow. If anyone wants to keep track of my trophies I do get them published in real time to my facebook account. Feel free to send me a friend request or ask any questions. Also let me know what your playing at the moment and what you would like to play in the future.

Hi all,

I managed to get hold of a copy of Mafia II and it turns out to be a great game, there are so many other games it reminds me of. It’s a little bit GTA, the old music reminds me of the Bioshock games, and with a little bit of stealth and lockpicking skills it reminds me of a few others all rolled into one.  It’s a pretty cool storyline and you get a trophy for each chapter completed, you can steal and upgrade cars, buy suits and other outfits.

There are a few other challenges which are not story related, like finding all the wanted posters, and all the magazines as well as you can make extra money by selling stolen cars to a couple of people, it’s not a have to but it’s good fun. I think the platinum trophy for this game will be fairly easy to get, i’m playing it on easy at the moment but I don’t see many sections too hard to complete on hard mode.  If your thinking of trying this one, don’t think anymore, get it. At the very least you should rent it, it’s a lot of fun but I think the replay value will go down once you’ve played it once or twice so it’s probably more of a rental than a buy.

Hi all,

Yes that’s why I haven’t been here in a while, I borrowed my sons GT 5 that he got for Christmas and i’m really stuck into it, lol.  I don’t see me ever getting the platinum trophy though, i’ll probably get around 90% but there are a couple of races that just are impossible, at least for me, to complete. One trophy I do not see me getting is the one where you have to get all gold in every event, i’ve got all the license trophies but  I just cannot get gold in them all.

Another really hard trophy is going to be in arcade mode where you have to complete a course in 7 minutes and 27 or 29 seconds, I can’t even pronounce the name of the course that’s how hard this one is, lol.  I’ve tried it a few times and although I enjoy trying I can only manage a time of around 8 minutes, I just don’t see me shaving another half minute off this one.  Finally I don’t see me getting the one where you have to drive the red bull car a million miles an hour without going off the track and making a specific time, forget it, i’m not even going to try. It makes me wonder if anyone really has platinum for this game, they must be insane.

Having said all that, I have heard that it is slightly easier if you use a steering wheel, well, I don’t have one :( so definitely no to the platinum trophy but i’m still going to enjoy playing this for a while yet, you can see my trophies as I get them as my facebook page automatically updates when I get a trophy. The only downside to this game is that i’m not getting any time to play all my other games, I should have never started this one, lol. It really is great fun though.

Hi all,

I’ve been having a hard time finding a decent game to play lately, tried a few out but nothing’s grabbed me in a while. I decided to give Cloudy with meatballs a try as it was supposed to be a really easy platinum but I got so bored of this I quit it and sent it back.

I’ve recently started playing the Tomb Raider Trilogy and have started Tomb Raider Legend, have played through story once and now i’m going to have to go through again to get the rest of the trophies. I’ve also started playing Sniper: ghost warrior and i’m disappointed that I won’t be able to platinum this one due to the fact that the kills online in multiplayer only register if you play ranked matches, trouble is no one is playing ranked matches, I really don’t know why.

If anyone happens to still be playing this one, let me know if you want to play some ranked matches in Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, V.I.P and Capture The Flag. Will post some more as I get to play more games but i’m not on as much as I was before, happy gaming :)

Hi all,

After playing Skyrim under my new trophy account (not so new anymore,lol) I got all the trophies apart from the Oblivion Walker where you have to acquire 15 daedric artifacts, this was a bit annoying as I did manage to get the daedric staff ( can’t remember what it’s called ) where you don’t destroy the skull but kill the guy trying to destroy it. After acquiring the staff I put it in my Breezehome in Whiterun so it wouldn’t disappear on me. Well, it did. It also did the same thing on one of the swords, so what I have to do now is start the game over.

This time around I will keep all daedric artifacts on my person, this way there is no way they should disappear on me.  It’s a disappointing glitch but at least I get another excuse to play it over again, I do love this game. Still waiting to get enough money spare to buy the download content for this too.

Next game coming in the mail is Borderlands as my original copy broke so i’ll probably play that amongst all the other games I plan on getting the platinums for.  Not much else happing, just enjoying being Dragonborn again, lol.  Happy gaming.
