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.

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.


This Week in Trophies 11-22-2015 – 11-28-2015

So, you know I can never pass up on a good sale, and this week PSN had some pretty good sales that I just could not pass up on. Even though I’m still totally addicted to Fallout 4, I hate having new games just sit on my system so I took a little break, a very little break, from Fallout 4 and played some new games this week. Here’s a breakdown of how my week went.

Fallout 4 – 50%

I like to think that I’m progressing nicely through the game, taking my time, doing a bunch of side quests, and other stuff, but it just feels like I’m missing something. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still enjoying the game or I wouldn’t be playing, but I just don’t know because it really feels like I’m missing some things. Anyway, of course I’m going to continue to play and I’m really excited to see how everything turns out in the end.

Pure Hold’em – 38%

I wanted this game day 1 but just couldn’t justify the price. With it being on sale due to the Black Friday sale the Playstation store was running along with the 10% discount coupon they gave to everyone I couldn’t pass it up. Now I have to tell you that I love Poker, especially Texas Hold’em, but this game I don’t know. The servers are basically dead which sucks because it’s a multiplayer game. I mean, sometimes I just sit in a tournament room for 30 minutes waiting for people to join and guess who joins? No one. It’s frustrating as hell and although there’s an option to play offline, it’s not the same and it’s not tournament style which was supposed to be the whole point of the game. Anyway, I’ll give this game a few more chances before I completely give up on it.

Minecraft: Story Mode – 21%

Yes, I know I’ve probably said a bunch of times that I was done with episodic release games, but this was also on sale and I was already using that coupon so there you go. I finished episode one this week and I’ll have my full review up on Wednesday so I don’t want to spoil too much here.

That was it for this week. It was an ok week thanks to starting two new games. Yes, I didn’t get back into playing Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune which sucks because I hate having a game where all I need is one trophy for the platinum but I really just need to put some time aside and I’m sure I can finish it in a day. Maybe today…or maybe not. Anyway, for next week I’m going to continue to play Fallout 4, give Pure Hold’em a few more chances, play episode 2 of Minecraft: Story Mode, and really try this time to finish up Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.
