Another Blizzard MOBA, huh. Well.

See, for me this strange tide is changing. It used to be hard for me to get into games thanks to my moderately sized/large...ish collection of dig/phys games, so I used to be a lot a lot like Raine.

But then, strangely, the moment Summer started, I got into games I never thought I'd give a chance. I could swear I was addicted to Personas 1 and 2 for a while, and I can really get into the miscellany I have around. I think it's because there are so many games coming out this year for me that I just realized that I have to cherish what I have, gamewise. I don't mean this as some sort of virtuous message, but I do have a lot of games and, well, I have them so why not play them? It has helped the urge for new games go down a bit.

Also, on an unrelated note, I found this funny:

Oh, I feel like that's what's happening to me right now. Games that I never would have touched or shown interest in a few years ago are starting to creep up on me. As a result, I'm buying all these games at one time DX Not that it's necessarily a bad thing that I'm trying to expand my gaming genres, but it's affecting my school productivity ;;

I'm trying to stick with only a couple of genres for now, and avoid expanding my horizons. If I do, there would be hundreds of games in my collection, with about a dozen of them being left untouched, haha.

I hate the existence of co-op trophies >>;; With PS games, it ruins my chances of getting the Platinum trophy for the game.

    I hate any online trophy tbh, I never bothered getting platinum in the later AC games as I had to get online trophies for it, was annoying because I plat the games before but refused to do them ones.

    I do hold no shame in admitting I boosted my last trophy in bad company 2, knifing 5 friends was impossible as none of my PSN friends even play bad company 2.

    What do you mean by boosted?

    I haven't always been obsessed with collecting trophies; it only started recently. They were never of interest to me before, but all of a sudden, I started becoming indulged in trying to obtain every single one; gives me a sense of accomplishment, and I love hearing that ding noise whenever you get one c:

    I admit that I am a bit obsessed with Xbox achievements which are that the equivalent of PlayStation's trophies. Course I find the achievement sound a bit annoying as well since that same sound is made when friends on my friends list log on.

    Yeah, it really puts me off trying to get the platinum for a game. I don't play a lot online and with a dodgy connection a lot is going against me.

    Boosting is a method folks use to get trophies for which the online parts of a game are fairly deserted. Helped me quite a bit in getting the platinum for DB: Raging blast 2.

    I'm such an achievement hound. Especially those ones that are completely irrelevant to the game.

    Multiplayer has never been my thing either, and I groan whenever I see trophies that need some kind of co-op in order to earn it \:

    Oh, right! Sorry ;; Whenever I hear achievements, I automatically think Xbox, but I forgot that Steam also has them too.

    When I hear the words "online trophies" I immediately push the game down on my list...
    But if you find a good boosting partner, they actually become the easiest trophies...
    I boosted most of my online trophies.
    Or... like in Soul Sacrifice, I did them by myself =D

    Not necessarily online trophies, but co-op trophies that need another player are easy XD Connect the controller, and boom. Cheap way of achieving it. But yeah. I constantly go to PSN Profiles to check trophies, and their descriptions, and I dread scrolling down to see "....in multiplayer mode."

    When it comes to achievements/trophies in video games, I find there is one one type worse than the ones that require getting done in multiplayer mode. Those are the secret ones since you don't know what you have to do to get them. That is why I have not gotten many secret ones.

      I normally research secret trophies, I am a lot less interested in trophies than I used to be, some games I platinum though like FFXHD, which is incredably grindy and somethings are supper hard... like the chocobo race getting the 5 boxes... its the hardest one for me TBH lol. So frustrating.

      Steam achievements for CO-OP have always been hard simply because I have next to no steam friends lol.

      I would happily boost more trophies on PSN though.

      Those are three top notch games that you may want to try out. Definitely do it on a SNES Emulator though; they'll cost you a pretty penny otherwise.

        No, don't pirate.

        Get the games legally. You can get all these games on Virtual Console. (Need a Wii U for Earthbound, tough if you don't have one.)

        Maybe not.

        http://www.gamestop.com/wii-u/dlc/earthbound/112472 - I recommend this if you're determined to play the game. (This is probably the best of the games Matt suggested btw)
