The Platinum Coated Month
It would seem to me that May 2018 is some kind of charmed month, where everything I touch turns to Platinum.

At the start of this month I had two platinums. I got my first in August of last year, and my second in late January. Almost 5 months apart. I was honestly expecting to get maybe 2-3 platinums per year at that rate and was happy with that goal. But since getting my second platinum in Shovel Knight which is actually a genuinely hard one to get, I realised I could actually achieve these trophies relatively easily if I push myself.

This month alone has seen me get 3 platinum trophies, all in games that I only started this year. So it's not just platinums but contemporary platinums. My most recent platinum is the one from Horizon: Zero Dawn which I'm still not quite finished with as there's the DLC and New Game Plus to play though... but a later time perhaps.

Horizon: Zero DawnAll trophies obtainedThe All trophies obtained trophy in Horizon: Zero Dawn worth 281 pointsObtained all Horizon Zero Dawn trophies.


Now the question is, what games am I going to go for now? There are a few that I do want to go for, and a few I expect I'll never get; namely Red Dead Redemption due to it's awful multiplayer system and quite difficult multiplayer trophies. So while I'd like it, I'm not going to focus on it just yet... who knows maybe a remastered version will come out, and I could go for the plat in that instead.

There are a few games I want to go for the plat in that I've somewhat abandoned and need to get back to. The Last Of Us Remastered has swallowed so much time just for four online trophies, and I'm still missing one. It's fun multiplayer sure but these trophies where a bit extreme. Once I do get it though it'll likely be my most proud plat as it'll certainly be the biggest time sink and involve a hard difficulty play through. I want to go back and finish Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit as it's the best racing game that has trophies. Then there's Alice: Madness Returns which I was really enjoying but I stopped playing when my PS3's dualshock broke and I just never got around to picking it back up. I've since replaced that dualshock so I have no excuse.

But those three are already known. I've been saying I want to do these for ages. So how about I give myself a good selection to go for. A dozen games sounds like a good amount...

So this is my official "going for" list... with the twelfth spot reserved for Sonic Mania Plus which I'm really hoping will release with a platinum this July when the physical version comes out. But if not I'll still 100% it at least...

In that list I have the three games I've been saying I want to platinum since the beginning of the year. I then have the winners from the poll I did in the last blog post, which was The Witcher 3, the runner-up was NieR: Automata so that's on the list as well. Following on from that, the third place was actually "none of the above" with multiple people messaging me to say I should play Okami HD from my list of "other" games. So I've added that to the list too.

From there it's personal choices. I'm a big Final Fantasy fan and have no platinums for the series. This should be rectified, so I've added FFX HD Remaster which I own for the Vita to the list. It's one I was considering going for the plat for last year but got distracted. Next is Until Dawn, a game I loved playing over Hallowe'en and after getting the plat in Life Is Strange, I'm realising I'm actually a fan of the genre, surprisingly; so I'd like to go back and finish this one.

Once I had JRPGs and Visual Novel esq games covered I decided to look into platformers. I've added something relatively unknown to the list, Rango on PS3. It's a game I picked up for dirt cheap and it's a 3D platformer that I've heard is a forgotten gem. I love 3D platformers, so why not? Finally I wanted some 2D platforming so I've added Rayman Origins for the Vita, and Celeste on the PS4 which is sadly digital only and also brilliant. Should it ever get a physical release I will definitely be re-buying it if only to own it legitimately. Though it is also really quite hard, so it should be a challenge to get the plat for. Like I say the last one on the list is reserved for Sonic Mania Plus, here's hoping it gets a plat.

So that's my next dozen platinum trophies planned for. I may discover a different game in the interim, but for the time being, these are the games I'm hoping to focus on.

To think, this time last year the idea of planning my 18th platinum trophy would have seemed ludicrous, but now it feels genuinely possible. Even if I only get 1 per month, I should have these done in 1 year, and is May is anything to go by I could have them done by the end of September (though that seems unlikely). So to make it more manageable, my aim is to have the platinum in all of these by the end of 2019. Doable? Who knows...

Comment by Pistol_WhippedXG at 00:32 on 22 May 2018

So far 1 partner never got online at the time we decided, but then blamed me and said I wasn't on, which I clearly was. I don't do the appearing offline thing.

Comment by Pistol_WhippedXG at 00:33 on 22 May 2018

The next guy found another partner cause I waited too long on the first guy. Then today a third guy messaged me saying we'd do it after he gets off work.

Comment by Pistol_WhippedXG at 00:34 on 22 May 2018

After he got on, I messaged him to ask him if he was ready, he ignored it and played Friday the 13th instead. Ugh... I want this game to be my first platinum.

I didn't really want to start another game until I got the Sniper Elite 3 platinum, but I have to review it before Friday. So far, really great, thankfully.

Comment by Pistol_WhippedXG at 20:07 on 15 May 2018

I don't actively review anymore so I probably won't take many, if any PS4 games so I can try to maintain 100% completions. This one seems doable.

It's very good. For some reason I thought it was one of those pretentious walking simulators but it's actually a really well thought out interactive drama.
