I've just completed Bioshock Infinite, which was a quite straightforward completion. Just noticed how few of the easiest Xbox One titles I've played. I should get on that.

Oh hi

*waves*

Got about 3 or 4 trophies left in Resident Evil 5 (PS4) to get the platinum. Hoping they make a better effort with Resident Evil 4 trophy list as the PS3 version is dire, depressing, just disappointing.

Will get back to Batman : Arkham Asylum soon

Whenever I finish a game I like to check the trophies leaderboard. It would be great if more people signed up for it as there's not even 20 people on there.

Yeah the 360 version of RE4 is the same, Code Veronica too. With such an expansive game you'd think it'd be really easy to come up with an interesting list, but they're so dull.

I've gotten back into the achievement hunting recently. I've noticed something odd - if I go to my profile on the left hand side from the home screen (the side bar where you can sign in and out) my achievement score shows at more than it does from the achievements app - it's a difference of 1680 points.

On xbox.com and TrueAchievements it shows as the smaller amount as well.

I assume the smaller one is correct, just find it odd there are 2 different numbers that show.

I'm pretty sure I'll have you beat in the race to the botttom of the leaderboard.

The trophies one kind of sucks. I've two PSN profiles and I can't find a way to link them like you can on the achievements version. And also it's not scanning my profile so I guess it's a privacy thing which you can only change from the console :simper:

I think there are only 3 games which I've got all the achievements on..The Bridge, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

I was aiming for them all on Skyrim, but a couple of glitches meant I couldn't, and most other games have multiplayer-only achievements which I can't get.

Currently trying to get them all on Crystal Defenders, but a lot of the guides I'm looking at seem out of date, as they were written when the game first came out, and then apparently it was patched to make it more difficult or something was changed, and so the guides don't really work now. I don't have the patience to figure it all out for myself, so might have to give up on that.

It's surprising how many games I've either kept going back to, or have played for longer than I otherwise would, just because I'm trying to get a couple of achievements.

Extremely Solid - The platinum trophy from Metal Gear Solid 2 (on the Vita.)

One of my most hardest trophies and damn proud that I unlocked it. The most close platinum trophy that felt so satisfied is the first Hotline Miami game.

I plan to finish off the PS3 version as well but I decided to leave that until I'm in the mood to play Metal Gear Solid 2 again.

Currently playing Life is Strange on the PS4 for my 45th Platinium.

Whoop! I remember the good old days of being able to rent games and glean them of all their easy achievements. Now I am luck to get a couple of hours a week gaming. I'm playing Dragon Age Inquistion anyway at the moment which does not have a high time to achievement ratio.

I did play through Goat Simulator and got loads of achievements by following a guide. For me that game was just weird and no fun, but the achievement run saved it for me.

Getting all the Xbox360 games via Gold is depressing me slightly as so many are coming up that I played years ago and obtained all the easy achievements - Tron etc.
