Final Fantasy XVI

Final Fantasy XVI is the first game in the Final Fantasy series to released for the PlayStation 5. Players take control of the protagonist Clive Rosfield, while the AI controls other available party members. The game is an action-RPG which includes the ability to level-up basic stats as well as special attacks known as Eikon abilities.

Set in the fictional world of Valisthea, a land divided between two continents, Clive Rosfield is royalty-turned-rebel who possesses the ability to use the god-like power of Eikons. He finds himself caught in the middle of war and strife as nations lay siege on one another. Meanwhile, a shadowy yet powerful figure seems to be pulling the strings in the background.

Final Fantasy XVI received positive reviews with an average score of 89%, praised for its graphics, storyline, characters, and music, though criticized by a few for its lack of RPG elements and dialogue.

This is a high 2-star rating, though more due to the time required, rather than the challenge of obtaining the platinum. Unlocking 100% of the trophies will require two full playthroughs, the second being a NG+ on ‘Final Fantasy Mode’ which is the harder mode, as well as some grinding in order to fully upgrade all the Eikon abilities. The game allows you to equip “Rings” which can cause the character to automatically dodge basic attacks, as well as use Eikon abilities automatically, thereby making gameplay much easier and simpler. Also, so long as you do not sell any of your equipment, there are no missable trophies to worry about.

Expect around 80-90 hours of gameplay for the platinum.

To begin, you will have the option of playing on either Story or Action mode. Since you will need a second playthrough on ‘Final Fantasy Mode’ (hard mode) it does not matter which setting you set for your first playthrough.

If you wish to make your gameplay easier, add the Ring of Timely Evasion to your gear, which will cause Clive to automatically dodge simple attacks (you will still need to dodge certain attacks during boss battles). You can also add the Ring of Timely Strikes if you like, which will cause all your Eikon abilities to be automatically triggered simply by pressing the attack button, turning the game into more of a button-masher.

The only missable trophy is Half Past Twilight, which is for crafting the Gotterdammerung sword. For this, you will need to keep 2 Darksteel, 3 Orichalcum, and the Primitive Battlehorn. If you happen to sell these items, you will miss the chance to craft the Gotterdammerung sword, and therefore the Half Past Twilight. As long as you do not sell these items – or do not even bother selling any items, since it is not particularly necessary to do so – then you have nothing to worry about. Simply play through the entire game and enjoy the story.

After completing the story, the game will allow you to make save point just before the final boss. This is where you can roam freely and mop up all the trophies you may still be missing at this point. Be sure to check out the Final Fantasy XVI trophy guide links under our Links tab for specific details on what you need. Try to unlock all the missing trophies, with the exception of Fantasy Finally and Masterclass.

Once you have finished your first playthrough and unlocked nearly all the trophies, it is time to start your NG+ on Final Fantasy mode. All your abilities, gear, and level, will carry over into this new game. On Final Fantasy mode, not only are the enemies higher level, but some mini-bosses will replace or be added to groups of enemies.

During your second playthrough, you’ll want to aim for getting the Masterclass trophy, which involves maxing out all your Eikon abilities. If you still have not unlocked the Masterclass trophy before taking on the final boss during your NG+ playthrough, you may wish to do some farming for AP first, in order to avoid a third playthrough.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Trophy Guide

Final Fantasy VII Remake Trophy Guide. Difficulty: *** A third-person action RPG and remake of the 1997 game first released on the PlayStation One. The Platinum is of average difficulty, but quite time consuming.

Game Name Difficulty Trophies Developer Country Bronze Silver Gold Online DLC
Final Fantasy VII Remake *** 54 Square Enix Business Division 1 Japan 44 7 2 0 0

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Final Fantasy VII Remake is an action RPG and a retelling of the original 1997 Final Fantasy VII. While the game mostly follows the same story, characters, dialogue, and music from the 1997 original, the graphics have been completely redone, and the battle system has changed to a hybrid of real-time action and strategic RPG elements, similar to the fighting system in Final Fantasy XV.

Set in Midgar, a dystopian metropolis, Soldier turned mercenary Cloud Strife has joined Avalanche, an eco-terrorist group attempting to stop the Sinra megacorporation from using up the planet’s life force. As cloud embarks on missions for money, he soon sympathizes with Avalanche’s cause as well as its members, leading him to face a deadly nemesis from his past.

Final Fantasy VII Remake received positive reviews with an average score of 89%, praised for its re-imagining of the original game while remaining true to its roots, new combat system, colorful characters, beautiful graphics, and for being overall superior to its original.

The difficulty is relatively average, although you will need to put in a fair number of hours into obtaining the Platinum, hence the 3-star rating. There are no missable trophies to worry about, as a chapter select allows you to go back and mop-up anything you are missing. Two full playthroughs are required, one on either Easy or Normal, and a second on Hard mode.

Expect around 70-80 hours for the Platinum.

In the beginning, you have the option of playing on Easy or Normal. The former will make the gameplay quicker, while the latter will better prepare you for your Hard playthrough, so the choice is yours. You will need to complete the game on any mode in order to unlock Hard mode.

There are no missable trophies to worry about, so feel free to play at your leisure towards the end of the game. If you wish to avoid much backtracking however, we recommend completing all 24 available side quests, and find all 31 music discs for the Disc Jockey trophy.

After you finished your first playthrough, it’s time to use the chapter select and mop up anything you missed. This will include the Best In The Business trophy for completing all the side quests, as you will need to replay Chapter 9 and make different choices that allow you to complete the previously missed quests. In addition to Chapter 9, you will also need to replay both Chapter 3 and Chapter 8 in order to unlock the different bridal dresses for the Dressed To The Nines trophy. Check out the Final Fantasy VII Remake trophy guide links under our Links tab for more details, as well as which trophies you still may need and their requirements.

Keep in mind, however, that you will still need to replay the game on Hard mode, where you can complete the missing quests as well as obtain three of the nine bridal outfits, if you wish to avoid much backtracking. Lastly, it’s time for your playthrough on Hard mode. Here, enemies have more health and deal more damage. In addition, you will be unable to use items, and MP cannot be regenerated by resting on a bench nor through completing quests. Make sure to come prepared, such as having useful material maxed out, and acquiring the Gotterdammerung accessory which, when equipped to Cloud, will make things much easier. Hard mode can be selected from the chapter select, though the entire chapter must be played on Hard for it to count.

During this playthrough, remember to complete the missed quests in Chapter 9 and make different choices in order to view the final three bridal dresses, if you haven’t done so already. Completing the game on Hard mode will unlock the Hardened Veteran trophy, and if you’ve been following this roadmap, the Platinum trophy as well.

Star Ocean Till The End Of Time Trophy Guide

Star Ocean Till The End Of Time Trophy Guide. Difficulty: ***  An action RPG and the third installment in the Star Ocean series, originally released on the PS2 in 2003. The game can be challenging on its hardest difficulty setting, and requires a lot of time for the Platinum.

Star Ocean: Till The End Of Time

Star Ocean: Till The End Of Time is an action RPG and the third game in the Star Ocean series. It was first released on the PlayStation 2 in 2003, then revamped in HD with trophy support for the PlayStation 4 in 2017. Rather than using menu-driven combat like its predecessors, the game uses real-time interactive combat in which players can switch to controlling different characters in the party, while others are controlled by an AI. Characters have a Bonus Battle Gauge which, when filled, players can access Bonus Battle which allows for certain benefits to the character, such as experience points or receiving items.

Following the events of Star Ocean: The Second Story, Fayt Leingod and his childhood friend Sophia Esteed, are on vacation with Fayt’s family on the planet Hydra IV, when the planet is suddenly attacked by an advanced alien race known as the Vendeeni. Fayte and Sophia are separated after the attack, and must travel to different worlds, fighting their way to be reunited once again.

The original Star Ocean: Till The End Of Time on the PS2 received positive reviews with an average score of 81%, praised for its imaginative settings, battle system, and character customization, though criticized by some for its voice acting and technical issues.

This is a high 3-star difficulty. The game requires three playthroughs, one of which is on its most difficult mode, which can be quite challenging at times, especially at the beginning before you can acquire better weapons. Also, with three playthroughs required and plenty of post-game requirements, unlocking the Platinum will be a very time-consuming feat.

Expect over 200 hours of gameplay for the Platinum.

Start with your first playthrough on Galaxy mode and enjoy the story. The only missable trophy you need to worry about is the Follow The Clues trophy, which involves using the Ancient Book to find all seven treasures. First, you need to find and recruit Roger into your party before leave Duggus Forest. From here, you will need to complete this side quest before the boss fight with Crosell in the Urssa Lava Caves, otherwise you will be locked out of completing the sidequest, and therefore the trophy.

After you completed the story, it’s time to head into the Fighting Arena and work on those related trophies. This includes winning all the single battles for the Solo Act trophy, winning all team battles for the Terrific Teamwork trophy, and reaching Rank 1 which enables you to fight and defeat Dirna and Solon for the New Champions trophy.

Next, it’s time to complete the post game dungeons. This includes going through the Maze of Tribulations and defeating Gabriel Celesta for the Breaking The Seal trophy, the Urssa Cave Temple and defeating Fayt for the Mirror Image trophy, then Sphere 211 and defeat the final superbosses Lenneth, Freya, and the Ethereal Queen for the Final Floor trophy. At this point, you should also have collected all 26 Trading Cards for the Collect ‘Em All trophy.

Hopefully, you should now have enough BT’s to unlock Universe difficulty mode. Here, the enemies will have 1.5 times more health. After defeating the final boss, you will unlock the Master Of The Universe trophy.

If by now you’ve unlocked 65% of the BT’s, you should be able to start your 4D difficulty mode playthrough. Here, the enemies have anywhere between 1.8 to 3 times more health. This playthrough can be quite challenging in the beginning, but will get easier once you’ve gotten better equipment. After defeating the final boss on 4D mode, you will unlock the Toughest Challenge trophy.

From this point on, it’s a matter of mopping up any few remaining trophies. This may include those relating to the Bunny Race and collecting 80% of the battle trophies for the Elite Trophy Collector trophy. Be sure to check out the Star Ocean Till The End Of Time trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you still need and their requirements.

Hitman GO Trophy Guide

Hitman GO Trophy Guide. Difficulty: *  A turn-based puzzle game based on the Hitman franchise. If following a walkthrough, the Platinum is both quick and easy.

Game Name Difficulty Trophies Developer Country Bronze Silver Gold Online DLC
Hitman GO: Definitive Edition * 17 Square Enix Montreal Canada 4 3 9 0 0

Hitman GO: Definitive Edition

Hitman GO is a turn-based puzzle game based on the Hitman series. The game was first released on the iOS and Android in 2014, before being ported onto the PS4 and PS Vita in 2016.

Players control the Hitman’s protagonist Agent 47, moving across lines from node to node in turn with enemy players. Objectives vary, from reaching the end node, to assassinating specific enemies. As players progress through the levels, the game takes on more complex aspects, such as trapdoors for warping, and different enemies with unique movements.

The original Hitman GO received positive reviews with an average score of 80%, praised for the games visuals, gameplay mechanics, and overall fun.

Since Hitman GO is a turn-based puzzle game, players can simply follow walkthroughs step-by-step, to clear all the levels in each chapter. This makes for a very quick and easy Platinum. A chapter select is also available for mopping up those few miscellaneous trophies.

If following a walkthrough, the Platinum can be unlocked in just 3-4 hours.

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

If you’re in a rush for the Platinum, then simply follow the guides and walkthroughs under our Links tab. There are seven chapters in total, each with a varying number of levels. If following the walkthroughs, than completing all chapters should only take a couple hours.

As you play through, be sure to NEVER press the Triangle button to receive a hint. Doing so will lock you out of obtaining the Silent Assassin trophy, which requires you to get through the game without using any hints. If you happen to press Triangle, you’ll need to start a new game.

Once you’ve completed all the chapters, you can use the chapter select to mop-up any few trophies that may still be outstanding. Be sure to check out the Hitman GO trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you’re missing and their requirements.

Tokyo Game Show 2019 Highlights

Just two days after a typhoon ripped through the area, game developers, distributors, gamers, and otaku alike filed into the Makuhari Messe Convention Center just outside of Tokyo, to attend the Tokyo Game Show 2019. While there were slightly fewer companies attending this year, TGS 2019 did see a new record of 2,417 booths (2,338 last year) which means plenty of games to try, and things to see.

Tokyo Game Show 2019

The largest promotional event was Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII Remake, being shown-off at both the Sony PlayStation and Square Enix booth. The original Final Fantasy VII was released on the PlayStation One in 1997, and is arguable one of the most beloved titles in the series. Visitors at the Sony booth could have their picture taken while wielding Cloud Strife’s massive sword.

Tokyo Game Show 2019

The other big title this year was Capcom’s Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion, which is actually a game in itself than simply an expansion. While Sony had playable demos of the game, the Capcom booth displayed life-sized monsters. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne was released last week.

Tokyo Game Show 2019

This year, SEGA combined their booth with their subsidiary Atlas, promoting the upcoming Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Persona 5 Royal, both for the PS4, as well as the Mario & Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games for the Nintendo Switch. Other titles included the Hatsune Miku: Project Diva MegaMix for the Switch, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim for the PS4, as well as games in their SEGA Partners division including Granblue Fantasy: Versus, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Shenmue III, and Star Wars Jedi: The Fallen Order.

Tokyo Game Show 2019

Konami continues to make its comeback with such upcoming titles as Contra: Rogue Corps, and Super Bomberman R. Though most of their efforts are being put into the mobile gaming market, with such playable games as Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls, Dance Dance Revolution, and Beat Mania II DX.

Tokyo Game Show 2019

Due to the lack of room, this year saw a lot less arcade-targeted VR titles, and more home oriented ones, including the dancing game Space Channel 5, and a meteor shooting game by students at Kobe Denshi College. Also, with over 4 million units sold, Sony is far from giving up on their PlayStation VR, with such playable games as Marvel’s Iron Man VR, Concrete Genie, and a new Hatsune Miku VR game.

Tokyo Game Show 2019

One of the cooler VR accessories I saw were the Cybershoes by a Kickstarter group. Resembling beach sandals, you strap them to your feet or shoes, sit in a chair, and simulate walking or running while playing your favorite VR title. Simple but effective.

Tokyo Game Show 2019

With all those extra booths this year, the Indie game area was packed tight with playable titles. Some that I played included Magical Girl’s Chronicle: Magusphere, which combined the cuteness of magical girls with the violence of blowing up tanks and enemies with guns and bazookas. And Liberated by Polish company Walkabout, where you literally play through the panels of a graphic novel. Both games will be out on the PS4 next year.

Tokyo Game Show 2019

Overall, there were no big surprises this year at the Tokyo Game Show 2019, but still had plenty to offer and gave us a peak at what’s to come.
