X-Blades is a hack-and-slash adventure where players battle against an onslaught of monsters using both gun-blades and spells. Hidden power-up items allows for upgrades of combat techniques, weapon enhancements, magic, and teleportation, while gained experience points are converted into skills divided between Light and Dark.

After locating an ancient artifact lying in the heart of some ruins, Ayumi finds herself cursed by its incredible power. She must search out for an artifact of the Light in hopes of curing her Darkness.

X-Blades received lukewarm reviews with an average score of 55%, rated as being overall mediocre with criticism towards its repetitive gameplay and controls.

X-Blades is not particularly difficult, only a little time consuming. Two playthroughs are required, one on its hardest mode which actually isn't too difficult. This is followed by some grinding in order to achieve 10,000 kills. The game is certainly easier than most hack-and-slash titles out there.

Expect roughly 20-24 hours for the Platinum.

Due to requiring both a Good and Bad ending for their respective trophies, you'll need to do a minimum of two playthroughs.

We recommend starting your game on Easy mode and going for the Bad ending. This means buying only the Dark spells, to which you'll need to do - and use Dark form - before fighting the Dark at the Temple. Also, avoid spending souls whenever possible until you've unlocked the Best Soul Collector trophy for having 50 million souls on you at one time. Finally, use this first playthrough to collect the artifacts, as well as unlock the miscellaneous trophies. Be sure to check the X-Blades trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you need and their requirements.

Next, start your second playthrough. This time on Pro mode for the Tough Fight trophy, and work towards the Good ending. Use the Armor Costume. If possible, try to work on any remaining trophies you still need at this point.

Lastly, it's time to mop-up what's left. This may include the Famous Monster Eliminator trophy for killing 10,000 monsters if you haven't been doing any grinding earlier. Again, check out the X-Blades trophy guide links to see what you may still be missing and their requirements.

Anarchy: Rush Hour

Anarchy: Rush Hour is a sort of hybrid between Ridge Racer and Burnout Paradise. It's an arcade-style racing game which includes crashing, stunts and car battles.

The game received luke-warm reviews, with an average score of 68%. With mediocre graphics and mediocre music (though you can swap the tracks with your own playlist) Anarchy: Rush Hour is relatively fun but nothing special.

This game is not particularly difficult, and requires far less time in acquiring the Platinum than Burnout Paradise. With the exception of the online trophies, it shouldn't take you more than 20 hours of gameplay to collect all the offline ones. Our 2-star rating is based on not having a boosting partner to help with the online trophies. If you do, than this rating could be reduced to a single star.

Since none of the trophies are related to the game's difficulty, you may as well select Easy.

Playing the tutorial is not crucial, but it will unlock a Level 2 Booster Device and Level 1 Repair device. Afterwards, the story begins, and from the start you can easily earn the Garage, Buy A Car, Buy A Device, Paint Your Car, and Fit Accessories trophies.

During gameplay, you'll be receiving messages from one of three factions, which lead to the 13 secret trophies. If it seems you're losing during these events, quickly restart the game and try again.

There are two online trophies you'll also need: Finish A Multiplayer Race, and Win 5 Times In Each Multiplayer Mode. These are two trophies which bumped our difficulty rating to 2-stars, as they are not only dependent on your skills, but whether or not you can find anyone online to play. If you're having trouble, check out the boosting forum under our Links tab, and start making some friends.

IL-2 Sturmovik Birds of Prey Trophy Guide

IL-2 Sturmovik Birds of Prey Trophy Guide. Difficulty: *****  A combat flight simulator from the Allies point of view during World War II. Some of the offline trophies are extremely challenging, while both the offline and online require a lot of time.

IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey

IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey is a combat flight simulator from the Allies point of view during World War II. It is based on both aerial combat and ground military operations on a grand scale, in which players can join in some of the famous WWII battles, such as The Battle of Britain, Stalingrad, and the Battle of the Bulge.

The game includes a new damage-effect engine, which allows players to witness real-time damage to the aircraft, as well as an environmental engine that creates realistic landscapes. An online multiplayer mode is included, in which players can select either the Allies or Axis.

IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey received positive reviews, with an average score of 82%, praised for its attention to detail, great graphics, and overall game mechanics.

It's rare we rate a game with the full 5-stars for difficulty, but the offline trophies are extremely time consuming and challenging, while the 14 online trophies are virtually impossible without boosting.

With a boosting partner, this rating can be brought down to a 4-star. But even with boosting, the online trophies will take hundreds of hours. And the offline trophies will only double that time.

This is definitely a Platinum to be proud of, but hard to get.

You'll first be playing the Primary Training, in which you can knock out three trophies from the start: First Step, Born To Be Ace, and Fresh Forces.

After that, you can start working through the campaign. Simulator is the more difficult mode, and it will need to be played if you're gunning for the platinum. Unless you feel really uncomfortable with the controls, we recommend jumping into Simulator, as the difficulty-related trophies are stackable, and the campaign is fairly long. During the campaign, you'll be unlocking the chapter-related trophies, as well as a few other miscellaneous ones.

After that, you can start on the single missions in order to flesh out the encyclopedia, which will unlock the Well-Read Pilot trophy, as well as a few others related to completing the single missions.

At this point, you can either mop-up the few offline trophies you're still missing, or go head and start on the more difficult portion of the game: online.

As we mentioned before, these trophies are extremely difficult to earn without boosting. Even if you wish to try doing them legitimately, you will need to make at least 2 friends, who you'll need to invite into your team and win a match, for the Comrad-In-Arms trophy. You will need to win online matches in each mode, and in each location, as well as 30-50 matches for some of these modes.

Good luck!
