Midnight Club: Los Angeles

Midnight Club: Los Angeles is an open-world racing game, continuing the Midnight Club series which began in 2000 on the PlayStation 2 and GameBoy Advanced. The setting of Los Angeles contains a 24-hour day-to-night cycle and changes in weather. A map shows the locations of over 10 different types of races, all color-coded to reflect their difficulty. Players also can pimp their rides with Special Features, such as EMP blasts which knocks out the electronics of nearby vehicles. The game features both offline and online races.

Midnight Club: Los Angeles received high reviews, with an average score of 89% for its cityscape graphics, high attention to detail, and overall fun-factor.

Midnight Club: Los Angeles includes 9 online trophies. Unfortunately, after the closure of GameSpy following the Ziff Davis acquisition of IGN Entertainment, the online servers to the game were closed on July 16, 2014. As a result, the 9 online trophies - and therefore the Platinum trophy - have since become Not Obtainable.

Due to the online servers being closed on July 14, 2016, Midnight Club: Los Angeles' 9 online trophies - and therefore the Platinum trophy - are now Not Obtainable. However, the game still includes 36 offline trophies, so if you're still interested, then read on.

Before we begin, we recommend you having a flash-drive or portable HD handy, to back-up your save files. The reason for this is the pink-slip races, which are necessary to forward the game's story. If you lose a pink-slip race, you will lose your car. The auto-save feature prevents you from backtracking before the race. So, ever so often (or just before entering the race) make a back-up of your save. This way, if you lose your ride, simply copy the previous save back onto your PS3 and try again.

That said, work your way through the offline trophies by racing, racing, and racing. There are certain trophies pertaining to the Special Abilities, so switch them up once you've collected the appropriate trophy. Try to refrain from going nuts with your cash, and only upgrade the car you're currently using, to work towards the Rags To Riches trophy - which requires $1 million in the bank.

Unfortunately, with the online servers closed, this is as far as we can go.

Red Dead Redemption Trophy Guide

Red Dead Redemption Trophy Guide. Difficulty: **** ย A third-person action western game set in an open world. While arguably easier than GTA IV, the Platinum is still time consuming, while the online trophies are challenging without boosting.

Red Dead Redemption

Red Dead Redemption is a third-person western action game, set in an open world, and a loose sequel to Red Dead Revolver, the 2004 title released for the PS2 and Xbox. Set during the American Frontier in 1911, players can engage in gunfights, explore the vast open world, interact with the environment, and tame and ride horses, and even hijack trains. The game also features online multiplayer with up to 16 players.

The story takes place in 1911 during the end of the American Frontier, where the Wild West is gradually being taken over by such modern technology as automobiles and oil drilling projects. In the fictitious locations of New Austin, West Elizabeth, and Neuvo Paraiso, John Marston is a former outlaw who's been forced by the government to bring members of his old gang to justice after his wife and son are taken hostage.

Red Dead Redemption was both a commercial and critical success, with an average score of 94%, and received numerous Game of the Year awards from such media outlets as GameSpy, GameSpot, and Machinima, praised for its detailed environment, great music and voice acting, and rich gameplay.

While the offline trophies are comparably easier than Grand Theft Auto IV, it's the online trophies which pushed this score to a 4-star difficulty, and requires some serious multiplayer skills. However, if you have a boosting partner, than this difficulty rating can be brought down to a 3-star.

Without a boosting partner, both the offline and online trophies combined will take you well over a hundred hours of gameplay.

Luckily, once you finish the campaign, you'll be able to free roam and collect all the remaining offline trophies. However, you should aim for Spurred To Victory while working through the campaign, which is a hidden trophy that involves completing 20 story missions without switching to a different horse. There are 57 missions in total, but if you happen to complete 38 of them and have been switching horses, then this trophy becomes missable and you'll need to restart. Otherwise, simply enjoy the game to the end.

Once the campaign's finished, you'll want to focus on the Redeemed trophy, which requires a 100% completion stat, much like the Key To The City trophy in Grand Theft Auto IV, though not as time consuming and no pigeons to shoot. Still, there's a lot involved, so check out the Red Dead Redemption trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you need to do. Also, you can sign up on Rockstar's Social Club and link your PSN account, which will from then on track your progress to make sure you haven't left anything out.

After that, it's simply a matter of mopping-up any offline trophies you've missed. Then, it's time to check out the multiplayer. There are 9 online trophies in total, and while a few are either simple or take time racking up XP, there are others that can be extremely difficult on your own. If you're looking for a boosting partner, check out the forums under our Links tab.
