This Week in Trophies 12-27-2015 – 1-2-2016

What an exciting week for trophies. I finished two whole games this week, got two platinum trophies, one right before the new year and one after, started a new game and just about finished it, and played a few other games as well. Gaming was definitely good to me this week so here’s a look at what I got.

Game of Thrones – 100%

This game, oh this game. Completing the remaining 5 episodes this week was no easy task. If you played on the PS3 then you probably know why, if not you’ll just have to stick around and wait for my review. I will warn you that I am way behind in reviews, which are actually done but I just have to get around to posting them. I might start doubling up but we’ll see how things go.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas – 25%

I’m still basically just taking my time and playing this game in between other games at the moment. I’m really in no rush to finish and am just enjoying the time that I’m playing since it reminds me of playing on the PS2. I will say though that I’ve never gotten this far in the game though so I’m interested to see where the story goes with this edition of GTA.

Life is Strange – 100%

I was only really planning on playing one episode this week, but after the fourth episode I just had to see what was going to happen and how it all ended. I know, I know the reviews for this game are coming as well, but I have to say that I was blown away by this game. It was seriously one of my favorite games and I loved just about every single minute of it.

Snoopy’s Grand Adventure – 91%

I know this is basically a kids game, but I seriously love anything Charlie Brown related. I still watch all the TV specials and when I noticed this game on sale during the holiday season, I knew I had to pick it up and give it a try. So, I started this game on the first of the year and am just about done with it. I finished the whole game and now I just have to go back and grab the rest of the collectibles before getting the platinum.

And that was it for this week. A total of…drum roll please…87 trophies. Wow right? I can’t remember the last time I had a week this good. Now for the upcoming week, I plan on finishing up Snoopy’s Grand Adventure, continuing to play Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, play a little more Fallout 4 as I hopefully get all of my crafting trophies this week, which is turning out to be a lot harder than I thought, start a new game, and go back and finish some DLC on Borderlands 2 for the PS3. How much will I get done? I’ll let you know next week.

This Week in Trophies 11-20-2015 – 11-26-2015

I want to start off by saying that I hope everyone had a great holiday! While this week was super busy with the holiday, I was still able to pack in a bunch of game time and I did pretty well this week. With a total of 31 trophies, here’s how my week went.

Fallout 4 – 80%

Another three trophies for Fallout 4 taking me on step closer to the platinum for this game. I’m pretty sure I won’t be getting the platinum by the end of the year, but it’ll be pretty close. I’m still working on my first game as I try to finish up some random trophies which mostly involve crafting. While I didn’t play this game all that much this week, I’m looking forward to continuing my playthrough and starting a new one.

Life is Strange – 55%

Three episodes down and two to go with this game and I am seriously loving every single minute of it. I really can’t say enough good things about this game. I’m a little behind in my reviews, but I promise that they are coming soon.

Minecraft: Story Mode – 81%

I pushed myself to play this episode on Tuesday when it came out and while it was probably the second most interesting episode since the season opener, it still really wasn’t up to par with other Telltale games. I’m not really looking forward to a fifth and final episode, but it could turn around and be a good one so I won’t write this game off just yet.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas – 21%

I’ve been currently playing this game in my spare time so I’m not really getting that much game play in, but at least it’s something. I’m still enjoying my flashback to my PS2 days while playing and enjoying the overall game.

Game of Thrones – 21%

I know I didn’t like this game on the PS4 all that much, but I still wanted to give it a try on the PS3 just to see if my first impression of the game was inaccurate. So far, I would say that my first impression of the game was spot on. There are so many things wrong with the PS3 version of this game and when I complete the game to 100%, I’ll have a full review on it.

That was it for this week. For next week, I really expect more of the same. I’ll definitely be finishing up Game of Thrones this week by playing one episode a day. While I would like to do the same with Life is Strange, I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to since those episodes are super long and it seems to take me twice as long to play each episode compared to a Telltale game. Other than Game of Thrones and Life is Strange, I’m going to continue playing some Fallout 4 and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. I really want to start a new game this week, but I might hold off since the end of the month is coming and it always messes with my completion numbers. I’ll let you know how things went next week.

This Week in Trophies 12-13-2015 – 12-19-2015

This actually wasn’t a bad week for me. I got in a decent amount of game time, completed a game, caught up on Minecraft: Story Mode in time for the next episode, and played another episode of Life is Strange. Of course I played Fallout 4 as well, I mean that should be a given at this point, and a little more of GTA: San Andreas. Here’s a breakdown of every trophy that I got this week.

Frozen Free Fall: Snowball Fight – 100%

I finally did it! After two months and three weeks, I finally got this game at 100%. I couldn’t be happier that I’m finally done with this game. My game reviews are a little backed up at the moment with everything that I’ve been playing, but you’ll be seeing this review very soon and I’ll give you a breakdown on the whole game.

Life is Strange – 36%

I played through the second episode this week and I have to say that I am loving this game. I’ll have my review up soon, but this has seriously been one of the best episodic games that I’ve played this year. This might even take the number one spot away from Tales from the Borderlands at this point, but we’ll see.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas – 17%

I’m having a really great time getting back into this game. I don’t even think I got as far as I am now when I was originally playing on the PS2. It feels good to revisit a game that feels familiar but new at the same time.

Minecraft: Story Mode – 61%

After not wanting to play because the second episode was just bad, I forced myself to play through the third episode. The third episode was…ugh. At this point I don’t even know where this game is going, but I’m just glad all the missable trophies are over and done with so I won’t have to do another playthrough.

Fallout 4 – 72%

I continued on my journey through Fallout 4 as I try to complete some of the other trophies before starting my new game. I only got one trophy this week, but I’m really really close to getting to level 50 and I expect to do so the next time I play. I also should pick up a couple more the next time I play and my second playthrough is actually right around the corner.

Fallout 4

Pure Hold’em – 47%

While I’ve basically given up on this game, I had a friend who was willing to help me out with a trophy so I said why the hell not. I guess I’ll continue to play this game when the mood strikes me, but other than that I’m kind of done at the moment.

Pure Hold'em

And that was it for this week. It was a pretty decent week and I’m hoping next week to be the same. I know the holidays are coming up, but I’m thinking I can still get through another episode of Life is Strange as well as the new Minecraft: Story Mode episode. I’ll also be continuing to play Fallout 4, and I might or might not start a new game this week. I hate starting new games so close to the end of the month, but sometimes I can’t help myself. I’ll let you know how things turned out next week, and I hope everyone has a very happy and safe holiday!

This Week in Trophies 11-29-2015 – 12-5-2015

There were a bunch of different trophies this week from a bunch of different games including a brand new platinum trophy. Even though I still spent most of my time playing Fallout 4, I did have a little extra time to devote to gaming this week so I kind of spent that extra time playing some other games. Here’s a breakdown of my gaming week.

Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune – 100%

I started out my week just right with this platinum trophy. I spent the majority of one day just powering through chapter after chapter of this game on crushing. In the end, the parts that I thought were going to be difficult actually weren’t and I was happy just to get this game finished with. I’ll have my full review of the game up on Wednesday.

Fallout 4 – 70%

I finished my very first playthrough of Fallout 4 this week. As much as I really liked the game and the story attached to it, especially the twist, I thought the ending was a little…underwhelming. At the moment I’m going back and collecting some trophies that I didn’t get before starting a new playthrough that will hopefully get me the platinum.

Pure Hold’em – 42%

I am really really trying with this game, and don’t get me wrong, it’s a good game. It’s just that the servers are basically dead. It’s a struggle to get into any kind of tournament and I’m really tired of playing with the AI over and over again. It’s just getting a little boring.

Pure Hold'em

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas – 10%

I picked this game up when it was released on Tuesday for the PS3, thanks Playstation for not mentioning that it would be released for the PS4 on Saturday! Anyway, I picked up this game because I’ve been longing to play some old school GTA ever since I got rid of my PS2 a while back. I could have gotten the PS2 classic version of this, but didn’t because of lack of trophy support. With trophy support added I knew it was the perfect time to get back into GTA. I’m looking forward to playing III and Vice City on the PS4.

Frozen Free Fall: Snowball Fight – 90%
I am almost done with this game! I’m so close too. I only need another 24 stars to reach the 500 stars required for the final trophy. I have to tell you though, this game is being a real bitch when it comes to getting those final stars. I’m going to power through it though and will hopefully be able to finish sometime this upcoming week.

Minecraft: Story Mode – 40%

I had some free time and was eager to play the next episode of this game since I really enjoyed the first one, and then almost immediately regretted it. The second episode was just…I don’t’ want to give too much away here but I’ll have my review of the second episode up sometime after my review of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.

And that was it for this week. A pretty active week for trophies and that platinum made me one step closer to my year end goal. I will say this though, at the moment I’m a little burnt out on Uncharted. Playing the three times in a row like that was just crazy even though it took me a little over two months to complete. I had planned on going back to finish up Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, but I’m going to wait until sometime next year to do that. As for this upcoming week, I’m going to continue working on Fallout 4, try really hard to finish up Frozen Free Fall: Snowball Fight, continue playing GTA: San Andreas, and I might just start an episode of Life is Strange since I picked up the season pass for $10.00 this week. I’ll let you know how everything goes next week.
