My poor PS3 :( I'm never a fan of leaving it on overnight to get these "24 hour" like trophies, but to sit there and play this game for 30 hours straight was not going to happen. The system for my digital games is so old that I fear one overheat will kill it for good. Stay with me, PS3!! You have so much life left in you!!
This game is actually a fun trivia game. Different than what I thought it would be. Based on the title, I expected it to be similar to Scene It and just have basic trivia on TV Shows and such, but it actually has a variety of categories to choose from (Entertainment, Science, History, etc). My favorite category was "General Knowledge" because it would legit be like "what is 2 + 3?" haha, like oh I just don't know!!!??!!
There are a few luck based trophies due to there being a wheel you can spin after each round. The spots either gain you money or take it away - whether it by general winning/losing or stealing/giving to another player. Those were slightly annoying because you need to land on specific spots x number of times to get some of the trophies. The longest one was the "Steal $25,000" trophy because I could not land on that spot for the life of me... then when it finally popped, I didn't even see it so I kept playing for about an hour and half before realizing I was done... Ugh. Such is my life, haha.

Hey developers, wtb the DLC you made trophies for but didn't release!!!!!!!
Oh... you're not even around anymore?
I'm sad I will never be able to get 100% on this game because of that DLC. Such a shame as it's a rather fun trivia game. Unlike TV Show King, this only has trivia based on Movies and Actors. I think I finished a good chunk of it awhile ago, but needed to get the "complete a game without missing any questions" trophy. Normally, with games like this, you can just pause the game or hit the PS button to go back to the XMB menu, but not this game!! Pausing the game does not stop the clock so you need to know the trivia and you need to get everything right.
I finally got the stupid trophy when my roommate's friend came over and they helped me out. The friend actually takes full credit for the trophy now haha, but I'm down to give him the credit because Lord knows I would not have been able to get that by myself (seriously... the amount of attempts made was just sad... so, so sad...).
I wonder if there's a way to petition PSN and be like "this DLC was never released, please remove trophies"... honestly it's going to bother me from here on out that I'll never be able to finish it.

"Why didn't I finish this game before?!", she asks for the up-teenth time this month. I used to play those old Word Scramble games so this was a nice little addition to the game collection.
You are on a quest to find some pizza! What better quest, right? Along the way, you need to fight monsters and the only way to defeat them is to outspell them. Not the magical way, the literal spelling way, lol. You have a grid of letters and need to form words based on the enemies specifics. Some can only get hit with 4 letter words, some take quadruple damage from words that end in an E... the variety is key in this game and you really need to pay attention to the notes to make sure you're doing it right.
You pick up (and earn) coins along the way which can be used for upgrades, weapons, potions and such.
Overall it's not too difficult of a game. It can be a little on the lenghtly side, but funny enough... if you don't patch the game and spell the word FARTS, it breaks the game and, if you don't exit out, it will repeat that word so long as the game is open so getting the "spell 3000 words" trophy can be done much quicker.

Ok - if you have not played this game, you should really reconsider your life choices and get it. And play it. And finish it. It's pretty darn good and definitely a great addition to anyone's game collection.
There are two adventures going on here - one with Shay and one with Vella. Shay starts off looking for something... more... when he meets a strange wolf like fellow who recruits him to help rescue creatures with what can only be described as an electrical claw machine. Vella starts off very Mulan-like. Tradition? Fuck yo tradition, son! As expected, their paths eventually cross and they need to rely on each other to defeat the hand of evil. You can actually switch back and forth between the two characters at any time and play each of their stories at any point.
The trophies are standard for a Platinum game - some missable, most story related, one speed run...
The speed run trophy actually took me three tries to get because I kept making stupid mistakes... what else is new, lol. I think I finished the game in about 58 1/2 minutes when I finally got it - too close for comfort for some but screw it, I'll take it! lol.
Definitely a great platinum to have - one of my favorites earned this year so far!
^^Well that didn't work as planned, lol. (Insert visible Flower banner here)

This game looks like it'd be relaxing, and for the most part it is... until you try finding a secret flower in a level that... you... already... got... like... an hour ago.
I'm seeing a trend with some of these games, lol.
The floaty controls took some getting used to as well. Not sure if I can say I was a fan of them. Made a handful of mistakes in the Electricity level and had to keep restarting, but was happy once it was done.
I watched PodCast about a year ago talking about how the "Bloom 10,000 Flowers" trophy was keeping people from getting 100%, but honestly it wasn't THAT bad. Just replay the last level a few times and you'll have it in no time.
Compared to other games, this was much more on the "take an easy" side of things. Fly around, bloom flowers, find flowers and you're done.
Now to stack it on the other two systems!
(Insert sarcastic yay here, lol)

I feel rather confident saying this was on of the first games I played. And by first I mean like one of the first... 10.
I've had the intention of finishing it multiple times over the years, but needed to be in the mood to do all the Time Trials. As with other games, now that I've finally finished it, I wish I would have done so earlier. It wasn't nearly as time consuming as I thought it was going to be and actually got done in a matter of maybe a couple of hours. If that.
There's not much else to say. It's Pac-man. I love Pac-man, he loves dots. It's a relationship we are working on.
