Styx: Shards of Darkness

Styx: Shards of Darkness is a stealth game and sequel to the 2014 Styx: Master of Shadows. Players keep a low profile by hiding in the shadows in order to survive and progress to the next level. The titular character Styx possesses a number of abilities such as turning invisible, setting traps for enemies, and cloning himself. Experience gained allows to unlock new skills and special moves. The game also includes a multiplayer co-op mode, where the second player controls one of Styx’s clones.

Following the events of Master of Shadows, Styx is offered the job of sneaking into Korrangar, the city of the Dark Elves. Despite the city rumored to be impregnable, Styx is able to slip inside and embark on a new objective – stealing a scepter which possesses incredible power.

Styx: Shards of Darkness received relatively positive reviews with an average score of 72%, praised for its level design, stealth tactics, and overall improvement over its predecessor, but criticized for its AI, combat system, and weak objective missions.

The Platinum for Shards of Darkness is arguably easier than its predecessor, Master of Shadows, due to the addition of the quick-save feature, which makes both farming as well as trial-and-error easier. Having said that, the overall challenge is about the same. The game can be played on Easy mode, and realistically require at least two playthroughs, with some additional farming afterwards. And a mission select means there are no missable trophies.

If using the collectibles guides and walkthroughs under our Links tab, expect around 20-25 hours for the Platinum.

Your first main goal will be to get gold level for all four Insignias for each of the missions. This includes not setting off alerts, collect all the tokens, not performing any kills, and beating the time limit. It’s technically possible to get all four of these in one playthrough, but unless you have some mad skills, we do not recommend it.

If you wish to make things easier on yourself, feel free to play on Easy mode and first just focus on getting the Shadows, Thief, and Mercy gold Insignias. Along the way, you will be unlocking the mission-related trophies naturally. There are a few others you could work towards as well to avoid a lot of post-game farming, so you may which to check out the Styx Shards of Darkness trophy guide links under our Links tab.

Once that’s done, reply each of the missions, this time doing a speed-run for the Swiftness gold Insignia. Once you get all four gold Insignias, you’ll not only unlock each of their corresponding trophies, but the All Along The Gobtower trophy as well.

Once that’s done, it’s time to use the mission select and mop up all the remaining miscellaneous trophies may still be missing. Any farming still required can easily be done by using a quick-save, do what you need to do, and reload to rinse and repeat. Be sure to check out the Styx Shards of Darkness trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you still need and their requirements.

Battleborn Trophy Guide

Battleborn Trophy Guide. Difficulty: n/o A first-person shooter taking place in online multiplayer battle arenas. Since the online servers were closed on January 31, 2021, all trophies have become Not Obtainable.

Battleborn

Battleborn is an online first-person shooter taking place in multiplayer online battle arenas. In June 2017, a year after its release, the game became free-to-play. The online servers were closed on January 31, 2021.

Players select from a roster of characters, each with their own unique skills and attacks, and choose to battle in either single player, competitive matches, or cooperative matches. Experience gained allows players to advance along the Helix Tree, where they can select from one of two buffs or new abilities, which can allow players to customize their characters as a custom loadout. Players also receive randomized gear at the end of each match, providing further abilities and buffs.

Battleborn received lukewarm reviews with an average score of 70%, praised for the roster of unique characters and visuals, yet criticized by some for the amount of hours required in leveling up and lack of content.

Battleborn was first released in May 2016 with a strong player base. However, this base quickly declined as players moved on to similar, yet more popular online shooters, such as Overwatch. Finally, Gearbox decided to shutdown the servers on January 31, 2021. Since the game is online only, all remaining trophies, including the Platinum, has since become Not Obtainable.

Normally when a game has its online servers closed, we would still provide some advice on unlocking any remaining offline trophies. Unfortunately, Battleborn is entirely online. Since the servers were closed on January 31, 2021, no more trophies, including the Platinum, can be unlocked.

Ancient Amuletor Trophy Guide

Ancient Amuletor Trophy Guide. Difficulty: * An action tower defense game for the PlayStation VR. The game itself is short and not particularly difficult, marking for a quick and easy Platinum.

Game Name Difficulty Trophies Developer Country Bronze Silver Gold Online DLC
Ancient Amuletor * 30 Ti Games China 10 15 4 3 0

Ancient Amuletor

Ancient Amuletor is an action tower defense game for the PlayStation VR. Players must defend crystals against waves of enemies that appear from different points in the arena and follow designated paths which lead to their targets. Players can select from four classes, the archer, gunner, mage, and puppeteer, and use a PlayStation Move controller in each hand to move and attack the enemies. The game also includes online multiplayer in which up to four players can team together to defend the crystals.

Ancient Amuletor received lukewarm reviews with an average score of 63%, praised for its generally smooth controls and overall fun, though criticized for its shortness and lack in content.

While the game is not a simple walk in the park, both the difficulty and time required is low enough to warrant a 1-star difficulty. The game itself is quite short, but will require some replay via the level select. There are three multiplayer trophies which, ironically, are easier to get if you are hosting a game by yourself. Overall, the Platinum is a mild challenge that does not require much time.

Expect around 8-9 hours for the Platinum, depending on your skills.

NOTE: The game requires the PlayStation VR and two Move controllers.

Begin by playing the tutorial. Not only will this help show you the ropes of the game, but will unlock the Become An Amuletor trophy.

Next, select Normal and play through the main game, which is comprised of four levels divided into two worlds. Doing so will unlock both the Crystal Amuletor I and Crystal Amuletor II trophies, and the Any More trophy for defeating 200 enemiesas well as unlock Hard mode. In this step, you needn’t worry too much about getting 3 stars as this will be easier to do later after your weapons have leveled up. For the most part, focus on getting a feel for which character you prefer and acquiring strategies.

Next, it’s time to replay those levels while focusing on unlocking any character-specific trophies you don’t yet have. These include the Rain Of Arrows trophy for the archer, Bulletstorm, Suppressive Fire, and No Place To Hide trophies for the gunner, the Hammer Impact, Puppet Savior, and Keep Your Distance trophies for the puppet master, and the Frozen Time trophy for the mage. Your goal here is not only to unlock these trophies, but level up your weapons as well, which will make the next two steps easier.

After that, it’s time to select your favorite character and attempt to get 3 Stars on any levels you haven’t done so, yet. Doing this will unlock the four corresponding Perfect Amuletor trophies.

Then, you’ll need to replay levels 1-2 and 2-2 on Hard mode to defeat each of the two bosses to unlock the Statue Breaker and No Pass trophies. In this step, your star rating does not matter, just defeat the enemies on Hard to get the trophies.

There are three online multiplayer trophies to unlock which, thankfully, do not need to be boosted as all of them are easier to unlock if playing by yourself. First, host a solo game and simply play to the end of the level to unlock The Best Partner, as well as the Hello My Friend trophy. Next, you will need to earn first kill nine more times by hosting solo, get the first kill, then quit and start over.

Finally, it’s time to simply mop-up any miscellaneous trophies you may be missing. Check out the Ancient Amuletor trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you still need and their requirements.

Squareboy vs Bullies Trophy Guide

Squareboy vs Bullies Trophy Guide. Difficulty: * A 2D side-scrolling beat ’em up. The Platinum can be easily be unlocked in one, short playthrough.

Game Name Difficulty Trophies Developer Country Bronze Silver Gold Online DLC
Squareboy vs Bullies: Arena Edition * 27 Rohan Narang India 10 9 7 0 0

Squareboy vs Bullies: Arena Edition

Squareboy vs Bullies: Arena Edition is a side-scrolling beat ‘em up, similar in style to the classic Double Dragon series. Players use a basic jump and attack, and can utilize a set of combos to fight enemies, as well as use weapons and objects found in the environment. The game includes both a Story mode, as well as an Arena where players make their way through a collection of survival stages. The game also allows for both single player and two-player co-op.

Squareboy is tired of being bullied, and so seeks out a martial arts master for training. With his new skills, Squareboy decides to teach the bullies a lesson.

Squareboy vs Bullies: Arena Edition received lukewarm reviews with an average score of 52%, praised for its humor and overall retro fun, though criticized for its short length and over-simplicity.

The game is a simple button-masher beat ‘em up with a few combos, and not particularly difficult. Half of the trophies are story-related, while the other half can be naturally unlocked for performing certain combos or attacking with environmental items, which means the Platinum can easily be earned in one playthrough. There is also a level select in case anything happened to be missed.

Expect around 2-3 hours of gameplay for the Platinum.

NOTE: The trophies on the PS4 have a separate list from those on the PS Vita.

If you wish to unlock all the trophies in one playthrough, we recommend checking out some of the Squareboy vs Bullies trophy guide links under our Links tab, just to get familiar with what you need to do.

As you play through the game, try to perform each combo to be sure to unlock their corresponding trophies. Also, be sure to use each of the found weapons at least once, which include the baseball bat, chain, tire, box, trash can, and crate, to get their corresponding trophy.

For the Weapons Master trophy, you’ll need to grab the baseball bat and move around until there is an enemy closely in front and behind you, then swing the bat to strike both enemies and unlock the trophy.

For the Gotcha Slippery Ninja, be sure to grab the crate during this boss battle in Level 10, and throw it at the ninja to unlock the trophy.

As long as you have done all this, you should have the Platinum by the end of your playthrough. If not, there is a level select in case you need to mop up anything. Again, check out the Squareboy vs Bullies trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you might have missed and their requirements.

The Forest Trophy Guide

The Forest Trophy Guide. Difficulty: ** A survival horror with crafting and exploration elements. The Platinum is not particularly difficult but can be time consuming.

Game Name Difficulty Trophies Developer Country Bronze Silver Gold Online DLC
Forest ** 38 Endnight Games Canada 22 11 4 4 0

The Forest

The Forest is a survival horror with both exploration and crafting elements. Taking place on a peninsula covered by a forest, players must create a shelter and weapons to defend against enemies, craft survival tools, as well as hunt for food and water to stay alive. Players can also explore a labyrinth of underground caves for better tools and weapons, as well as discover clues to the whereabouts of the player-character’s son. The game also includes a 4-player online co-op mode.

Eric LeBlanc is on a flight with his son Timmy when the plane crashes on a peninsula surrounded by a forest. He awakes to see his son kidnapped by a strange man. Eric must survive the horrors awaiting him on the peninsula while searching for his son’s whereabouts.

The Forest received positive reviews with an average score of 80%, praised for its creepy atmosphere, increasing difficulty, AI enemies, and story, though criticized by some for minor bugs and technical issues.

Since the majority of the trophies can be done on creative mode, the Platinum isn’t particularly challenging. There are only a couple combat related trophies where you’ll need to play the game with enemies, though these are easy to get. Also, if you find someone to play or boost with, the four online trophies are not difficult as well. However, the reason for the 2-star difficulty is for the time involved, as you will need to do a lot of exploring, searching for mushrooms, and cutting trees, to eventually unlock all the trophies.

If you are just going for the Platinum, following the guides, and have a boosting partner for the online trophies, it will take around 30-40 hours for the Platinum.

If you’re in a rush for the Platinum, begin by starting a game on Peaceful mode where you do not need to worry about enemies, and finish the game. To do this, it is recommended to follow one of the walkthroughs under our Links tab. Essentially, you will need to craft some Molotov cocktails and a spear for the ending, collect the rebreather from Cave 5, the key card from Cave 6, then head towards the bottom of the sinkhole from Cave 7 to finish the game. Doing this will not only unlock the Survive The Forest trophy for completing the game, but will unlock Creative Mode. Also, if you are able to do this while eating only snacks, you can unlock the Vegan trophy as well.

Once you’ve completed the game, it’s time to start a new game on the newly unlocked Creative Mode. Here is where the majority of your time will be spent, unlocking the majority of the trophies. Your ultimate goal here is to survive 100 days without finding your son in order to unlock the Bad Father trophy, as well as pass 50,000 steps for the Step Master trophy. Along the way, you will need to collect all 5 cassette tapes for the Gabe Fan trophy, collect the 6 robot pieces for the Good Father trophy, find and eat all 6 mushroom types for the You Are A Fun Guy trophy, explore all 10 caves for the Spelunker trophy, find and hunt and display all animal types for the Trophy Hunter trophy, find all 43 passengers on the island for the Get Closure trophy, and craft all items at least once for the Crafty trophy. Be sure to check out the walkthroughs, maps, and The Forest trophy guide links under our Links tab for added help with this.

Also, it should be noted that the Don’t Save The Forest trophy for cutting down 1000 trees must be done in one sitting. This means, you cannot save and quite your game, otherwise your count of cut trees will be reset to zero. The quickest way to do this in one sitting is either online with three other players each cutting 250 trees, or on Creative Mode using explosive trip wire traps.

Once all that is done, there are a couple trophies which you’ll need enemies for. This means setting up a new game on Normal mode and chopping up a total of 50 bodies for the Choppy Chop trophy, killing and eating 6 enemies for the Major Cannibalism trophy, and killing a downed enemy with a rock for the Splatter trophy.

Last, there are four multiplayer trophies to get. For the Medic trophy, in which you need to revive 10 co-op players, simply take turns killing and reviving each other until the trophy pops. If you are looking for a boosting partner for this, check out the boosting forums under our Links tab. Or, simply host an online session and wait for people to join to knock out these four trophies.
