Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition

Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition is an action title first released in 2008 before trophy support was available. The game was revamped in 2015 for the PS4, as well as the Xbox One and PC, and included trophy support, as well as new characters, new cutscenes, and improvements to the gameplay and graphics. Like previous titles in the series, players must fight their way through each mission using a set of combos, while occasionally collecting items and solving puzzles.

After Dante murders the leader of a religious sect known as the Order of the Sword, one of its young members, a demon hunter named Nero, sets off to find and stop Dante. Nero soon learns however, that things are not as they appear, and is faced with the threat of a demonic army.

The original Devil May Cry 4 received positive reviews with an average score of 84%, praised for its stylistic graphics, smooth controls, level design, and was hailed by many critics as the best in the series at that time.

The 4-star difficulty is for both the time required in obtaining the Platinum, as well as the challenge. Players with experience in the Devil May Cry series, and/or have played the original Devil May Cry 4 on the PS3, may be able to bring this difficulty score down to a 3-star. There is a trophy for completing the story mode on each of the seven difficulty settings, and since these do not stack, you will need to play a minimum of seven playthroughs. Realistically however, you will probably need to do a fair bit of backtracking in order to acquire S-rank scores for each. In addition, you will need to clear the Bloody Palace mode five times, once with each character. Overall, the Platinum for this game requires skills, patience to overcome frustrations, and fair bit of time.

Expect over 100 hours of gameplay for the Platinum.

Since the difficulty-related trophies are not stackable, we recommend beginning with Human mode, the easiest setting. Rather than worrying about getting S-ranks on this playthrough, spend it getting used to the game itself and the controls. Also, focus on clearing all the secret missions for the Nothing Left Unsaid trophy, as well as finding all the blue orbs and skills, which are not necessary for any trophies but will make your life easier. By the end of this step, you should unlock the Easy Does It trophy for clearing Human mode, as well as both the Rookie Devil Hunter and Skilled Devil Hunter trophies for defeating 100 and 1,000 enemies respectively, and perhaps a few others naturally during this playthrough.

Next, it’s time for a playthrough on Devil Hunter mode. Here, there are more enemies which have more health and can do extra damage. If you’ve collected all the blue orbs in the previous set, then you should have much more health, which makes this run a little easier. During this playthrough, you’ll also want to focus on getting an S-rank for each mission. Getting S-rank involves obtaining a high amount of style points, finding the hidden red orbs, completing the mission within a certain time frame, and avoid dying which can penalize your score. By the end of this playthrough, you should unlock the Done And Done trophy for clearing this mode, as well as A Cut Above for clearing all missions with an S-rank. In addition, if you play with Lady and Trish, you can also unlock the Deadly Pair trophy.

After, you will need to redo the previous step three more times, on different modes. This means clearing the Son of Sparda mode with S-rank, the Dante Must Die mode with S-rank, and Legendary Dark Knight mode with S-rank.

Once all that is done, there is still the Heaven or Hell mode to clear. In this mode, all enemies, and yourself, will die with one hit. Luckily, this one does not require S-rank, so simply play through to the end and unlock the Step Into The Light trophy.

Finally, there is the Hell and Hell mode to clear. Here, you can still die by one hit, but the enemies can take some damage. Again, you do not need to worry about S-rank on this mode. Clearing this will not only unlock the Tonight We Dine In Hell trophy, but also A Throne Of Glory trophy for clearing all the game modes. Also, if you choose to play as Vergil, you can also unlock the Devil In A Blue Coat trophy.

Next, it’s time to mop up any remaining trophies not related to the Bloody Palace. This means, getting S-rank on Human mode if not yet done, as well as getting SSS-rank for each of the boss battles on Son of Sparda mode. Be sure to check out the Devil May Cry 4 trophy guide links under our Links tab for help with anything you’re missing.

The final step is the most difficult, which involves clearing the Bloody Palace. This is a survival mode with 101 stages that include both regular enemies and bosses. You will need to clear the Bloody Palace with each of the five characters for their respective trophies, as well as to unlock the House Of Pain trophy. You will also need to get S-rank on all stages during one of these playthroughs for the King Of The Palace trophy. Using the Super Costumes will help you greatly with this task. Unfortunately, neither Trish nor Lady have Super Costumes, which will make their run on Bloody Palace arguably the most difficult challenge on your road to the Platinum.

Once all that is finished, congratulations on unlocking a very respectable Platinum.

Waking Violet Trophy Guide

Waking Violet Trophy Guide. Difficulty: * A top-down puzzle game with 42 levels to complete. If following a guide, the Platinum is both quick and easy.

Game Name Difficulty Trophies Developer Country Bronze Silver Gold Online DLC
Waking Violet * 19 Marco Mastropaolo Italy 7 2 9 0 0

Waking Violet

Waking Violet is a top-down puzzle game. The player controls the protagonist Violet, solving puzzles by using abilities, manipulating the environment, and figuring out how to avoid or stop monsters from attacking. The game includes 42 levels, and the ability to rewind time to undo mistakes made by the player.

Violet is a teen girl who desires to be treated like an adult. After falling asleep, she becomes trapped in a dream and cannot awaken until she has fulfilled her quest.

Waking Violet received positive reviews with an average score of 79%, praised for its puzzles and level of difficulty, art design, and soundtrack.

Since this is mostly a puzzle game, following a guide will make this Platinum quick and easy to obtain. There are two mini-games which must be completed, one being a Pac-Man like game, the other a Bomberman like game, and so these require a little skill. As for the rest of the game, as long as you follow a guide, and make a strategic save before the story branches off to different endings, unlocking the Platinum is not very difficult.

If following a guide, expect around 3 hours for the Platinum, and under 10 hours if solving things on your own.

NOTE: The trophies on the PS4 share the same list with those on the PS Vita.

In order to acquire the Platinum in the quickest way possible, play through the game up until the Alchemist. Along the way, you will unlock a number of trophies naturally. However, be sure to make an effort to get the Trap-Door Murderer trophy for killing a monster with a door, die outside a level for the Clumsy trophy, complete five levels without using the rewind button for the Unmistaken trophy, and play through the game without using any hints for the Intrepid trophy. Also, you’ll want to play and complete both secret levels for the What’s This Key For and I Might Need A Keyring trophies.

There are three different endings, each with their own corresponding trophy which includes The Dream Is Still Alive, A Broken Dream, and the Sweet Dreams trophies. Check out the Waking Violet trophy guide links under our Links tab for more details on this. Once you have completed one of the three endings and finished watching the credits, reload back to the Alchemist and work towards another one. Also, after you have unlocked the Unmistaken trophy for not using any hints, be sure to use a hint during your run for the next ending, to get the Not Afraid To Ask trophy.

Hopefully, after completing those three endings, you should unlock the Platinum. Be sure to check out the Waking Violet trophy guide links and walkthroughs on our Links tab if you’re having trouble.

Dark Cloud 2 Trophy Guide

Dark Cloud 2 Trophy Guide. Difficulty: *** A third-person action-RPG with procedurally-generated dungeons, and a revamp of the original PS2 title. A few trophies make obtaining the platinum both challenging and time-consuming, but is still doable.

Game Name Difficulty Trophies Developer Country Bronze Silver Gold Online DLC
Dark Cloud 2 *** 31 Level-5 Japan 9 17 4 0 0

Dark Cloud 2

Dark Cloud 2 is a third-person action-RPG first released on the PlayStation 2 in 2002, and revamped with trophy support for the PlayStation 4 in 2016. The game is a spiritual sequel to Dark Cloud as it uses the same procedurally-generated dungeons and real time hack and slash playstyle, yet possesses a new plot and characters.

Max is a young boy who is forced to flee from the sanctity of his town after an enemy attempts to take away a stone in his possession. He teams up with Monica, a princess from one hundred years in the future, and together they set off on a quest where the past, present, and future collide.

The original Dark Cloud 2 for the PS2 received positive reviews with an average score of 89%, praised for its gameplay, story, colorful characters, weapon upgrade system, and graphics.

The 3-star difficulty is for both the difficulty and time required. The Medalhead trophy in particular, which requires fulfilling challenges in order to collect medals, can be quite frustrating as it requires a fair bit of preparation and luck. Also, while the game still includes a post-game free roam, there are still a number of missable trophies to be concerned with. Overall, the platinum is more difficult and time-consuming than its predecessor, but still doable.

Expect around 120-140 hours of gameplay for the platinum.

To begin, there are four missable trophies to be concerned with: A True Visionary, Medalhead, Monster Master, and Take A Picture It Will Last Longer. The point of no-return is the final boss in Chapter 7, as you will be locked out of Moon Flower Palace, Kazarov Stonehenge, and other future areas after defeating him. So feel free to play up until facing the final boss in Chapter 7, and make sure it is safe to proceed before taking him on.

Near the beginning of the story, you will come in possession of the camera. From this point on, make sure to be on the lookout for photos and scoops in order to start working towards the Take A Picture It Will Last Longer trophy, which requires 700 points in total, out of the 750 points which are available. Check out the link for the ideas, scoops, and inventions guide under our Links tab for more details. You can also use this link to help with unlocking A True Visionary trophy, which is another missable trophy which needs to be unlocked before the final boss in Chapter 7.

You’ll also want to unlock the Fighting For Fun trophy as early in the game as possible. This involves defeating 200 enemies without dying, which of course will become more difficult as you progress through the game.

Aside from that, you’ll want to focus your time on leveling your Ridepod and weapons to prepare for the boss battles in Chapter 7. This means unlocking the Core Strength trophy for acquiring Steve and Ridepod’s master grade core, A Royal Arsenal trophy for building up Monica’s Island King and Five Star Armlet weapons, and the LEGENDary trophy for building up Max’s Legend and Supernova weapons. Lastly, you’ll need to obtain all 12 monster transformation badges for the Monster Master trophy, as well.

Once all that is finished, it’s time to focus on earning all medals in every chapter up to this point for the Medalhead trophy. These are a collection of challenges which often include speedruns, defeating enemies in a particular way, fishing, and playing Spheda. Some of these can be quite challenging. Be sure to check out the Dark Cloud 2 trophy guide links under our Links tab for more specific details.

Once you feel you are ready, go ahead and defeat the final bosses at the end of Chapter 7, which will end the game and unlock the Palace Of Flowers trophy.

From here, you will embark on the Zelmite Mine bonus dungeon in Chapter 8, where you will be able to unlock the Medalhead trophy. You can also spend this time unlocking any other of the unmissable outstanding trophies at this point. Defeat the Dark Genie, which is the last boss, to unlock The Forgotten Adventure trophy.

Unravel Trophy Guide

Unravel Trophy Guide. Difficulty: ** A side-scrolling platformer with puzzles to solve. The game is not particularly long, and not too difficult for average players.

Game Name Difficulty Trophies Developer Country Bronze Silver Gold Online DLC
Unravel ** 26 Coldwood Interactive Sweden 10 8 7 0 0

Unravel

Unravel is a side-scrolling puzzle platformer, often compared in style to the LittleBigPlanet series. Players control the protagonist Yarny, a creature made of red yard, who can use the yarn from its body to swing from objects, pull things, and form rope bridges, in order to solve complex puzzles and reach the goal.

Yarny is born out of a ball of red yarn used by an old woman. It soon begins to explore the environment, learning about the home owner’s lives through its memories.

Unravel received positive reviews with an average score of 80%, praised for its visuals, puzzles, and story, though criticized by some for its controls.

The game is often compared to the LittleBigPlanet series, only not as difficult, far shorter, and no online trophies to worry about. Also, like LittleBigPlanet, chapters can be replayed in any order, which means there are no missable trophies, either. However, you will need to find all the collectibles in each chapter, as well as clear each individual chapter without dying. Overall however, the Platinum is not particularly difficult nor time consuming.

Expect roughly around 10-15 hours for the Platinum, depending on whether or not you are following a guide, and your skills at clearing chapters without dying.

Aside from completing each chapter, you will also need to find all five secrets in each chapter to work towards the No Stone Unturned trophy, clear each chapter without dying for the Not So Fragile After All trophy, and perform a miscellaneous challenge for its respective trophy.

After you complete the game, you will be able to select any level to replay, which means there are no missable trophies. As a result, it’s up to you whether you want to simply play the game first, or attempt to get all the trophies in one go.

If you are having trouble finding the five secrets in each chapter, check out the collectible and walkthrough guides under our Links tab.

For the miscellaneous challenge related trophies, be sure to check out the Unravel trophy guide links under our Links tab to learn what to do, and how to do it.

Otherwise, good luck, and enjoy the tale of Yarny.

Chaos on Deponia Trophy Guide

Chaos on Deponia Trophy Guide. Difficulty: * A point-and-click adventure which follows the events of the 2012 Deponia game. If following a guide, the Platinum can easily be obtained in just a few hours.

Game Name Difficulty Trophies Developer Country Bronze Silver Gold Online DLC
Chaos on Deponia * 35 Daedalic Entertainment Germany 14 16 4 0 0

Chaos on Deponia

Chaos on Deponia is a point-and-click adventure, and a sequel to the 2012 Deponia. Like its predecessor, players control the protagonist Rufus, solving puzzles by collecting objects and using them or combining them to interact with machines, in order to progress through the story.

Following the events of the previous game, Rufus is still seeks to get off the landfill-planet called Deponia and head to the flying city of Elysium. Having changed his ways, he must also save his love interest Goal from a problem that he created.

Chaos on Deponia received generally positive reviews with an average score of 75%, praised for its lively visuals and overall fun, though both criticized for some faults in the storyline and voice acting.

Since the game is a point-and-click adventure, there is no real skill required except an ability to solve puzzles. Moreover, if you follow one of the walkthroughs under our Links tab, you can easily breeze through the game in just a few hours and unlock the Platinum by the end of your playthrough, hence the 1-star level of difficulty.

If using a walkthrough, the Platinum can be obtained in just 3 or 4 hours.

There is no chapter select, so all those missable trophies should be collected in one playthrough.

If you are in a rush for that Platinum, be sure to follow one of the walkthroughs under our Links tab. And of course, check out the Chaos on Deponia trophy guide links as well, for more specific details on each trophy.

The Pin-Up Goal and Cheater trophies cannot be unlocked on the same save file. This means you will need to make a backup save, unlock one trophy, then reload to obtain the other trophy.

For the Animal Lover trophy, you will need to perform three different actions. The first is in the Tavern in Act 2, the second is in Doc’s Workshop in Act 2, and the third is in the Rebel Hideout in Act 3. Again, check out the Chaos on Deponia trophy guide links under the Links tab for more specifics. However, if you are following one of the walkthroughs, then these three actions will be noted during the playthrough.
