PLATINUM’d: New section

Welp. it’s been a long time since my latest post here (almost to the point I had to clean all the dust and spiderweb around the dashboard), so after getting my 11th platinum trophy this morning (and by morning I mean 1AM), I decided to add a new section to the blog and keep it alive a bit longer: PLATINUM’d.

PLATINUM’d will cover my point of view of a game I’ve completed (trophy wise, and sometimes 100%), sort of like a review and random aspects of it (trophy wise). And because why not, a trophy/achievement roadmap (since it works the same way for multi-platform games, such as Assassin’s Creed).

Of course, there are other games that don’t qualify for a platinum trophy, but they are displayed as 100%, like JOURNEY or inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood. Those will be added as well (otherwise I’ll be wasting my cash on games just for platinum trophies and keeping this blog alive heh).

So far, the list includes:

  • Assassin’s Creed: Revelations
  • Assassin’s Creed 3
  • God of War 3
  • inFAMOUS
  • inFAMOUS 2
  • inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood
  • Saints Row: The Third
  • Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus
  • Sly 2: Band of Thieves
  • Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves
  • Sly Minigames (well… yeah, it’s a 100%)
  • Tekken Revolution
  • Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves


There are some upcoming platinum trophies on the way, like Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, Killzone 2/3, Metal Gear Solid 4, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, among others. But, as the title says, I must obtain the plat/100% on those games before giving my review.

Stay tuned.

Whelp, I just managed to beat the game, after some years when I had the chance to play it on PC. But now that I have a PS3, and a friend decided to lend me the game for a quick platinum run (still on it, 16 more trophies to go in order to unlock the platinum), I just said “why not?”.

After getting platinum on God of War 3 in just 10 days, I told a friend to lend me Dead Space for a quick run and get more trophies (forgot to make a post that day when I achieved my personal goal, 500 trophies in 100 days, including 7 platinum in total).

I already played Dead Space in 2009 on my old PC. It was a good game for PC, but almost impossible for me to play with headphones. The stress I had while playing with closed-style headphones, was way too much. I already knew what to expect, and was eager to know what happened to Isaac Clarke while he was trying to escape the now haunted USG Ishimura.

Toying around with videos

Well, while I was playing inFamous last night, I found an interesting “glitch”, if we could call it like that, that makes Cole do the hot coal dance while walking on certain small parts. It was silly and ridiculous, but hilarious. And then I asked myself “wish I could record this and upload it… Oh wait, my phone does record videos in HD!”.

I used the video function for the first time on my Galaxy S Advance, testing how good the 720p quality was, and gotta admit, it’s above the standard. For a sub-$300 phone, the quality is good (I blame upload issues about the artifacts around 0:05 and 0:06).
