Hey, I'm a 21 year old guy i currently work as an IT apprentice and only gets to play games every so often! . I started gaming with FF7 back in 1997, my dad had heard good reviews for it and thought I'd like the game. I started to love games from then onwards, moving onto wrestling games, football games and eventually making my home at FPS games. FIFA and online shooters are my favourite these days.
I play football in my spare time, as well as listening to music and on the rare occasion I edit and upload videos. Other than playing games and talking to peeps online either through means of the Chatbox and Skype.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
I didn't intend to buy this game, I hadn't even heard of it, but my friend borrowed it to me for a week saying it was pretty good. As I started the game up it instantly reminded me of Lara Croft. I fell in love with the game. After failing on getting the GTA4 platinum I was determined to get 100% on this game. I played my first playthrough for fun and instantly started my second playthrough on crushing (I always called it cruising, since it was easy). I had finally gotten my first platinum, but I wanted more. Here started my hunger for trophies, and it hasn't been satisfied yet.
The graphics were pretty good at the time, i was blown away by the detail of the main character Drake. The gameplay and animation was smooth. It was the perfect single player experience.
SEGA Mega Drive Ultimate Collection
I've never owned the SEGA Mega Drive before, so visiting this game wasn't a flashback at all. So playing some of these classics was new to me, I thought some of these were pretty good, some not so good. However after a few hours i was finished with the platinum, with the only trophy that caused me too much trouble was the Yazthee.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3
This was the call of duty that put me off CoD for good. The single player portion of the game was decent at best, the story was pretty good actually but it has been better (look at mw2 or cod4 for example). The true downfall of this game was the coop and the mp really hurt this game. They were so frustratingly bad, i found myself screaming at all the bullshit in the game, the dlc just adds to the frustration, Man i hated this game.
The game was only made decent due to the fact i was playing with my friends, it would be a terrible and more difficult grind if this was not the case.
A lot of people didn't like gravity rush for some reason, but i really loved the game, especially the story. The main character was interesting to learn about and there was also a few interesting side characters too. My only gripe with the game was the lack of interesting monsters to face, they all look the same with slight differences. The bosses however were fantastic experiences and fun to find out how to destroy them. I also thought that the challenges were fun to beat also, even though most hated that part of the game the most, i found it to be great whilst playing on the train! Best Vita game out.
Played this version of the game with BT, Kirby and Pie. Was good fun, but we had trouble connecting, dat JP server.
Another excellent cooperative game here. Fully recommend not only the game but the dlc too. Its hilarious as hell. The platinum is pretty fun to earn, there isn't really anything that is frustrating at all, just a nice smooth path to victory. Played this with BroTizzle, KJ420 and Aldo. Travel Master 2014
Saints Row: The Third
Really fun game, the coop playthrough with BeautifulTorment was enjoyable to say the least and the ending? It was incredible, combined with that Bonnie Tyler classic, literally made the game 20 times better than it would be. The DLC however was poor and expensive, really not worth the money at all, and With BT abandoning me on one of the DLCs made the experience worst, after all he did steal my helicopter kill...It was a fun game overall though and i got Saints Row 4 because of it. Infact i might do the German version in the future. 8/10.
Killzone 3 Multiplayer
So this game when i played it was basically a boost fest with my boy BeautifulTorment since the servers were completely dead, so not much to say about my experience other than BT was really good at letting me killing him in various different ways so that was fun i guess. I mean its always fun killing BT right? Also big thanks to my boy Shawn who helped us when we needed extra peeps for one of the trophies.
Took me quite a while to start playing Unit 13 as i wasn't really interested in the gameplay. I would do a few missions here and there as i quickly got either frustrated or bored with the game. But in the end i got the plat with a little help from BMJ! who shared the last 3 HVTs with me giving me the motivation to finish the game up. Also my 2nd platinum tonight
Borderlands Game of the Year Edition (JP)
This is the platinum for the Japanese version of the game! I played the EU version a long time ago, solo. This time I played the game the whole way through with 2 scrubs named Killerjazz420 and BeautifulTorment. We had a good time for the most part. Both BT and Jazz took a liking to falling asleep while we played though, whilst i carried the team by travelling to all the missions and keeping everyone alive. Huge thanks to kb420mcl for helping us with Crawmerax at the end though. No modded weapons made some of the DLC packs quite a bit more challenging this time through.
MLB 13: The Show - Home Run Derby Edition
Extremely short psn game that I believe was free on the US PSN store! Not much i can say about this game as i only played it for 5 minutes. A really simplistic arcade baseball game that anyone can pick up and play, you will get really good at this game in a matter of minutes and you'll be getting homeruns for days.
PS All Stars Battle Royale (PS Vita)
This was the second time platting this game, it was as boring as ever with the repetitive nature of the arcade trophies. Pretty much doing 20 playthroughs through the arcade whilst doing level 3 on specific levels, makes this a simple platinum. The online trophies were only difficult since there isn't anyone online anymore. But thanks to ruber212 and a few random people online that i was able to get triple kills on i managed to get them pretty quickly. Not a fun plat, but if you are looking for an easy platinum to do then look no further than PS All Stars.
Counter Strike: Global Offensive
Really quick and fairly easy platinum so there isn't much to say about this game. I boosted the more difficult trophies with Pie, and managed to clean up the rest on an offline bot game with some practice. This was supposed to be a classic hit making its way to the consoles but i don't think it was ported well at all, the controls felt stiff and clunky, it seems it'll take a while to become a veteran of the game. But i only played it for a few hours as that's how the plat is! Really easy platinum with a few luck based trophies, grab a partner to make it easier.
Need For Speed: Most Wanted
Like i've always said racing games are always the same, they only have minor differences. Most Wanted was nothing special, it was like the other street racing game i've played (nfs: Undercover). I did fairly enjoy the game though, the races were (mostly) fair and not too difficult, the online was stable and there was a nice selection of cars. The only problem i had with the game is the collectibles was not fun at all (why put collectibles in a racing game really?) and there wasn't a way to search for what races you had already completed. Oh and not to mention there was a load of expensive DLC too. Overall decent racing game and not too difficult platinum trophy.
Thanks to Lee for helping me with the online trophies
Resistance: Burning Skies
Really quick platinum, disappointing story and repetitive gameplay. The Resistance series has always been filled with decent gameplay and a great story, so i always did like their games, thats why i bought this. Having the expectation that it was going to be a very decent, however i was highly disappointed. I didn't care for the characters, the story didn't even try to get me involved emotionally and the gameplay was basic walk here shoot shit move on. Very poor game but a very quick plat.
Shadows of the Damned
So first of all if you really like this game i'm sorry for what i'm about to say. Here goes, i got this game from naugie, we traded games CH demon souls for a copy of sotd. This was over a year and 6 months ago. That's right it took me 18 months to complete this game, why you ask? Because i feel the game is way overrated, the controls are bad and they always feel like you are combating with it to get a clear shot (its luck based if you do get the perfect shot you wanted) After completing a run on the hardest difficulty with every misc trophy done too, you still have to complete it on normal and easy difficulty....you know just in case you can't beat it on normal or easy. Which is another point, not only do you have to complete the game 3 times ( i don't know how people could triple plat this game, 9 playthroughs wtf) but the gameplay is really repetitive. You find yourself killing enemies in the same way with your favorite weapons and similar puzzles. The only good thing about this game was the bosses, they was very well designed for the most part. The story was ok but i didn't find myself laughing at the game, which it tried very hard to do so. I hope i never have to play this game again i can't wait to give it back to naugie.
My 76th platinum and an ultra rare plat as well, woot. I played Terraria almost always in coop with my gang, BeautifulTorment, KirbySeph and Killerjazz420. The game was surprisingly fun in coop, i didn't expect to get interested in it when i first bought it, but i found it a decent coop game and learned much about the game, it wasn't a game i didn't care about. I was confused why it was a ultra rare plat, most of the trophies can be gotten with ease if you know someone who has the platinum, also what makes it easier is that the items can be duped in coop worlds too, making the game a whole lot easier. But overall the gameplay was fun, the worlds was unique, and the bosses were awesome to fight against. The only downside was the game was very glitchy, some of the trophies wouldn't pop when they were supposed to and the game would freeze a lot. Also when you have Kirby running around the world placing toilets everywhere doesn't help either or BeautifulTorment and Killerjazz420 need your help or a new item all the time
The Walking Dead
I really enjoyed this game, it was a lot like heavy rain. Really good story not too much gameplay aspects but the story was a big plus that kept me playing the game. The game was a quick platinum, about 5 hours, and takes no skill whatsoever. Basically just have to progress through the story and you will get all the trophies. The choices you have to make in the game can affect the gameplay but the story will end in the same way or so i believe. I would recommend you play the game, don't think it is worth a second play through though. I can see why it was voted one of the best psn games. /me grabs the tissues.
Much better than the previous FIFA game, trophy wise anyways. very few bullshit trophies you need luck for in this game, most are what they should be, skill based trophies. It was a delight to get the FIFA platinum for once, it didn't have me raging at the screen at all. I'm gonna go for the double platinum it was that much fun! If you are looking to get your first FIFA plat then get this one! You will however need to have one friend to get the online trophies with, but they don't take to long to get. A big thanks to Gota for helping me get the coop trophies
Really glad to get this platinum after a final 10 hours of grinding the same mission for experience. I would recommend this game to any group of 4 players, really fun with a few coop partners to blast through with. The only trophy that is annoying is the level 100 trophy, as you won't get higher than level 50 through natural road to the platinum and that isn't even half way. It'll take about 20 hours to get to level 100 alone. Other than that though the game and platinum is great and i really enjoyed it, looking forward to the DLC that is coming out for it. Would like to thank KillerJazz420, BroTizzle, Kirbyseph, Malik and kevinnummer1 for helping a bro out. If you don't mind level grinding get this game!
Sound Shapes x2
Decently fun platform game, the campaign i'd say was the most enjoyable out of the 3 modes. Beat school was easy enough (especially with a guide) and death mode is where most people including me had the most trouble with. Plenty of silver trophies in this game, and in the dlc (which i recommend to any trophy hunters to buy). This game was really cheap and worth the money, although there is a few missions in death mode that had me frustrated you will get used to the levels and eventually complete them, they are only quick levels too so you won't lose tons of progress and time when you die. Average game 6/10
Black Ops 2
WORST CALL OF DUTY EVER!! Even MW3 wasn't this bad, really did not enjoy playing this game. The trophies was bad, the single player got unbearable because of the amount of playthroughs and challenges you had to do. The multiplayer was bad, the zombies and the DLC was bad. My god the Easter eggs this year was too complex and you either needed to be incredibly lucky, have 4 players, or have 4 really good players playing. This game and its trophies was so bad, i am really considering not buying another call of duty game again. 3/10
Saints Row 4
First of all i wanna say that this game was not as enjoyable as Saints Row 3 and a little credit to Killerjazz420 for playing half the game with me. I did enjoy saints row 4, it took a different gameplay approach to 3, it focused more on super powers, and becoming sort of a super hero instead of being the boss of a gang trying to take over the city. The game is a lot more fun in coop however you have to share your kills with your partner which can be a pin when going for challenges. The story and the collectibles go much quicker when you are playing coop, so whatever is best . 8/10
Another ultra rare platinum! Had a lot of fun with BeautifulTorment on our first playthrough of the story mode, but it went all down hill when we had to go for the challenges and the story scores. The multiplayer wasn't too difficult when we got used to the survival aspect and had a plan together, we was joined by Mr i'll go and do my own Malik and Sir die a lot PixelZero. Overall wasn't a difficult platinum as most of the game can be done with friend and on the lowest difficulty. Other than the insane playthrough that you have to do, which can prove to be quite difficult. Other than that is was a decently fun game and worth a pick up if you have a friend to play with.
Sound Shapes x2
My first Playstation 4 platinum and my 3rd Sound Shapes platinum! This was a much quicker and easier platinum the 3rd time round, it only took me about 4 hours to complete the game, with most of my time spent on death mode. (that mode can really piss you off at times!) The game ran a little bit smoother than previous versions but other than that it was practically the same experience. Not much to say about a game you've platted 3 times now...onto the 4th Sound Shapes platinum maybe?
So for the most part of the game this was a fun coop game that i played with a bunch of friends. The trophies aren't too bad (except or one, which i'll go into detail) most can be earned in the tutorial level. There is one trophy where you will need to do a lot of pointless grinding for and it can ruin the entire session, but luckily if you know someone who has the required stuff in their game, you can join them and get the trophy in 30 seconds which is a good bonus. Thanks blazkiller. Would recommend to play with a bunch of mates.
FIFA 14 PS4
Second time i have platted fifa 14 and i could of had the fastest plat time if it wasn't for EA. ( check this thread for more on that http://psnprofiles.c...ic/11230-hey-ea) Second time around playing this game was so much fun though as i knew how to do all the frustrating trophies! The only problem was the online ones, as no one i knew had a PS4 and the challenge trophy. Glad i did it for a second time, it makes up for fifa13.
Really bad platinum image. But a really fun space shooter, if you loved super stardust HD then you will love this game all day every day! Played this game with Pie for the 1 credit trophy, which was really fun as the game really caters to the coop players by making the game run smoothly with 2 players. A really fun game if any of you guys have a ps4 and if you have PS Plus then you can get the game for free, even better! Last thing to note is the trophies in this game are fairly easy although the 1 credit trophy may require a partners help depending on your skill and the luck in the game. 9/10
The Walking Dead Vita
Second time playing through this game and it was still fantastic, decided to play differently to see how it effects the story...so many feels. This really is one of the best games out on the vita. I didn't complete it as quick as possible as i played when i wanted to and didn't force my way through. The only part of the game i didn't like was the Wyatt DLC and doing the rock, paper, scissors trophy.
First of all i want to explain that before starting this game i was warned it may glitch a few of the trophies. So i played it anyways, and my friend was not wrong as the game refused to give me one of the trophies. Turns out all you need to do is solve a rubix cube, the da vinci code and explain the existence of life to get the trophy. The game is a basic racing game, you jump in a car drive A to B and hopefully you'll become first, but it can be very forgiving as you can rewind time to make sure to go around that one corner without crashing. The Single player was boring as ever as all you had to was the same race every season, with the multiplayer not really offering any different. The trophies were piss easy (including the DLC) and basically if you don't mind waiting a few weeks the online isn't much of a grind, just a bit glitchy. However i wouldn't recommend the game, honestly don't play it, its bad.
Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock
If you are not a doctor who fan, don't play this game. Watch the TV show and become a Doctor Who fan first. When you are a Doctor Who fan, don't play this game. Its not really that bad, its just extremely average and for a tv show tie in game that's fairly good, but still the game can be unfair and repetitive, especially on hard puzzle difficulty. The game is more fun with a coop partner, mainly because the AI partner is poor, it also makes the game shorter. The game is relatively easy to plat, if there was a decent trophy guide on the internet, however at this moment in time there isn't so good luck! Also please note that you cannot play this game online. Why you may ask? i dunno actually. There was gonna be another 2 more Doctor Who games but they cancelled them after the first one, take that as you will.
Diablo 3 is an enjoyable game, unfortunately it suffers from its trophy list. There is a trophy which requires you to grind 5m gold coins, this may have been easy except you have to pick up the coins from dead enemies or chests. Which means quest rewards, selling items and trades all don't count. You may whine at me saying that diablo 3 is a game designed to the player grinding, which is true, but when i'm grinding for an item in a specific way and has no real use to me anymore i don't see the point, only to get the platinum ofcourse. Its a solid loot dungeon game, the story is beautiful and the gameplay is very fun (dependent on what class you choose). Another bonus is that you can blast your way through the game with 3 coop partners. The trophies like i already mentioned can be grindy, but most of the trophies make sense and are not too difficult, since you control the difficulty level it can just be a bit time consuming thats all. Its a really good game, and not a bad port from the PC, get a few friends together and have a good time with this game!
I really enjoyed the single player campaign in this game, the story was fantastic and the set pieces was also. The trophies were very easy also, i had no trouble getting all the trophies in under 2 playthroughs. The multiplayer however was really boring when played solo, its the same as BF3 there hasn't been any advances this year other than graphically. I'd recommend only playing the multiplayer with friends and on double exp weekends, or you'll be bored quick. With the bullshit DLC trophies adding to the poor multiplayer i wasn't impressed with this game, only the single player excited me.
Resident Evil 6
I hate this game, i blame BeautifulTorment for all the pain i have suffered playing this game. The coop was painfully bad, the grinding for score points was horrible, the multiple DLCs were all nasty apart from the horde type DLC which we had fun with. This game has put me off all resident evil games, which is quite the feat, I vow never to play another again, its that bad.
Wonderbook: Book of Spells
You know what? This is actually a quite decent game, all the move movements worked fine and the wonderbook worked perfectly throughout my experience of the story. However there was one big problem with this game. That is the isn't much of a story, its just a bunch of mini games that you have to complete, and there isn't even much variation of the spells, they are all pretty much the same thing. You draw the symbol of the spell you want to use then flick in the direction you want to do it in. The game is really short, therefore the game doesn't get too repetitive. The game has interested me enough to look into getting more wonderbook games, to see how they play. It was also a really simple platinum to get.
Another platinum BeatuifulTorment managed to complete before me despite boosting the mp with me. The single player was decent, it wasn't too bad, it was however the trophies for the single player portion of the game that hurt its progress. The amount of collectibles that the game required you to get was too much i feel, 400+ I think? The multiplayer wasn't anything to write home about, but it was really fun running around with my panzerschreck shooting newbs (especially BT) and you don't really have much fun boosting mp trophies normally, so that makes a happy change for once. The platinum is also ultra rare, so if you and a buddy fancy that, its easy enough
Sound Shapes HK
So if you thought platting the game 4 times wasn't enough...i had to go and platinum the game again, but this time it was the Hong Kong version. Yes you may start calling me the Sound Shapes King as well as the FIFA King, as i managed to platinum the game in 2 hours, which i think would be high up on the fastest achievers if it wasn't full of 10 seconds achievers. Ah well, there is always another region i can go for...JP?
Finally got this platinum after 2 years of trying to get an inform, after percision-playy gifted me 200k coins, i managed to get lucky and get an inform. Now i can be crowned once again as the #FIFAKing. #ConnmanWins. Hopefully there won't be anymore inform trophies in future FIFA games, one can only hope however. Roll on the next FIFA.
Payday: The Heist
Loved playing this game with my boys BT, KJ420, Malik, Nummer1 and KirbySeph. Its a pretty sweet coop game, free and although it doesn't have many different missions, you will find yourself playing them over, and over for fun. Warning you will have to grind for exp towards the end.
Despite what BeautifulTorment says, this game is no where near as good as FIFA is. In fact this game isn't even a football game, really all you have to do is sim every game until you have the plat. This makes the game very, very boring, and a very poor game. Luckily it was free! Don't spend money on it though.
Great return to the series, loved the story, one of the best stories I've actually played in fact. It did start to play a little like uncharted but its even more than that and focuses on the survivor aspect, which is freaking awesome. The multiplayer is pretty fun too but unfortunately the online mode is dead when i got to play it, so i couldn't play much of it unless it was for boosting, hopefully the PS4 version's online isn't dead.
Seriously i got carried through this game by DJ_Helyx, Hitman, KJ420, BT and KB. It probably is a decent game if you actually play it properly but if you are just standing around spamming R1 whilst the rest of your team does the rest then its quite boring. Decent tower defense game, but its not my type of game at all.
Far Cry 3
Possibly one of my favourite games that I've played this year! The single player was fun, i felt that the story was absolutely amazing, the gameplay was fluid and enjoyable and the graphics was top tier. The coo aspect of the game was decently ok, what made it enjoyable was trying to get more kills than my Bro BT not the actual experience of the missions. The trophies were easy enough, as long as you get the awkward trophies early on everything else will go smoothly.
Sound Shapes (JP)
Yes another Sound Shapes platinum, probably the last.
This is basically a game that tests your brain with different mini games. Which is pretty sweet for the first 10 days, the problem however is you have to play the game for 100 different days and 10 different weeks for the plat. So its repetitive as hell, not fun. It was a free game on PS+ and its quite a rare plat so, all in all not bad to play here and there to get the plat.
I am really bad at worms (unless its against wdjat or BT because they are scrubs) the story took me a while to beat getting stuck on some bullshit mission where i have to shoot a grenade in the most impossible fashion. The online grind wasn't too bad, getting the 300 kills was great fun with the concrete donkey
Operation Flashpoint: Red River
Rifleman 250 meters north west! Played this with the gang, BeautifulTorment Grenadier, KillerJazz Rifleman, Malik Medic, and me the Javelin Master. Realistic game army sim, this game felt like it was the same mission over and over again. With the game involving clearing an area, jumping in a jeep or a helicopter, just to kill some more people. The DLC was terrible btw.
