1.) King's Quest Ep.1/2
2.) History Legends of War: Patton (Platinum)
3.) Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair (Platinum)
4.) Day of the Tentacle Remastered (Platinum)
5.) Stranger of Sword City (Platinum)
6.) Trails in the Sky SC
7.) Stella Glow
8.) Adventures of Mana (Platinum)

Beat Adventures of Mana today, was hoping to go for the platinum, but I just have no idea what item I'm missing for the item collector's trophy, and I really don't want to grind to 99, so I'll skip that one. Was working on Trails of Cold Steel, but got side tracked for about 8 hours or so with Mana. What a great game. That main theme really hits hard, and gets the feels going with that violin intro. Nice of Square to get this out with a stealth release. Noticed there were a few cameo's by some DQ monsters (Green Slime(?), used to be called Babble when it was Dragon Warrior, and those Mole men).

I can still hold out hope for Sestsuna on Vita can't I?

Edit: Got that stupid item trophy, turns out I didn't buy the one thunder spell usage item in the magic shop...maybe i will go back and grind to 99 on my lunch breaks. I feel sort of bad leaving it incomplete.

Edit 2: I take it back. I just got the platinum for AoM. Relatively easy, fairly grindy, but not the worst. Certainly a lot less grind than any of the Neptunia games I've platinum'd. Took just under 14 hours, so about 5.5 hours of grinding in total to get those last few trophies.

OMG! That was amazing! It's so colourful and cheesy and fun! Sure, I still want to play a Fire Emblem-style MetaTen SRPG, but I'm so glad someone was crazy enough to make this!

I bought some stuff on sale.

15. Quell Reflect
You know those ice block puzzles you often find in games? This puzzle game is a bit like that but with a few twists. You use raindrops to collect all the pearls while avoiding spikes, using little warp portals and so on. Neat little collection of puzzles if you happen to be in the mood for one.

16. Forget Me Not: My Organic Garden
A clicking game in which you raise organ trees. I liked the creepy cute atmosphere and basic gameplay, but it got a little too grindy towards the end. Plus, my laptop has some trouble running it (it has trouble running almost anything nowadays, sadly) and the severe slowdows take the un out of it.

17. Beyond Eyes
An artistic game about a blind girl who leaves her garden to look for her best friend: a cat. It's a slow game, but it looks lovely. The girl can't see and as you explore, she fills everything in with her imagination. Sometimes things turn out to be a little different than what she expected. Like, the those scary birds turned out to be chickens! That was a cute moment. I'm not sure if I'd recommend this game when it's not on sale, though. It's short (~90 minutes) and the interaction is limited. It's mostly a sweet little experiment in storytelling.

3. Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day
4. Red Faction: Armageddon
5. Persona 4 Golden
6. Ico
7. Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth
8. Atelier Escha & Logy
9. Etrian Odyssey Untold
10. Tomb Raider (PS4)
11. Sleeping Dogs
12. Phoenix Wright Dual Destinies
13. Adventure Bar Story.
14. Parascientific Escape: Cruise on the Distant Seas

15. The Walking Dead: Michonne
It does not live up to the first two seasons but it was fun enough. No real surprises but if you liked Telltales other stuff, you will probably like this.

16. Atelier Sophie
I thought they handled the no time limit better in Sophie than they had in Shallie. The game was packed with events where Shallie felt kind of barren in comparison. Most of them were fluff but it is an Atelier game. I thought the dungeons could have been handled a bit better. The designs were fine but they popped up so much I didn't really feel like visiting most more than once.

17. Zero Time Dilema.
It was fine. I had fun with it. Not going to go into any detail to avoid spoilers but I was happy with it.

18. Hyper Devotion Noire
It was alright. It wouldn't rank high on my list of favourite srpgs but I did enjoy it. I thought the secretary was really cringy though. I also didn't like how enemies could walk over traps without activating them.

19. Persona 4: Dancing All Night
I was kind of disappointed with it. It was decent but I expected more. I think if I get an urge to play a rhythm game, I would choose another.

20. Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

I thought the reviews were a bit harsh on it. It does have all the flaws they mentioned but I think it would have been better received if it didn't have to live up to the previous titles. It starts off good but I don't think it really built up to anything. It was decent but not great.

21. Infamous: Second Son
It was a lot of fun. It was also kind of short but didn't outstay it's welcome. Story was not spectacular but the gameplay was really fun.

18a-d. Space Pilgrim Episode I-IV
It's a science fiction point & click adventure game made in RPG Maker! Guess how much time I spend on underdeveloped planets? None at all! The puzzles were pretty easy and I never got really stuck, which is a good thing, I guess, given the kind of twisted logic often found in games like this. Fun story, too. Well worth the... 60 cents? Wait, I only paid 60 cents for close to 10 hours of solid adventure gaming? Now I feel bad...

1.) King's Quest Ep.1/2
2.) History Legends of War: Patton (Platinum)
3.) Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair (Platinum)
4.) Day of the Tentacle Remastered (Platinum)
5.) Stranger of Sword City (Platinum)
6.) Trails in the Sky SC
7.) Stella Glow
8.) Adventures of Mana (Platinum)
9.) Trails of Cold Steel (Platinum)

Wrapped up Cold Steel last night, and was a bit choked I screwed up on three trophies during my initial run. I thought I was being extra careful and getting everything but I clearly missed 3 small things! At least the game requires two play throughs to be able to get the platinum, so I'll have to be extra careful in grabbing those books, chests and notes for everyone. Single run game time was 64 hours and change with little idle time.

Really liked this one, maybe I'm immune to it, but even some of the stereotypical characters didn't really bother me. Game play, I'm grateful we are able to skip battle animations - though I do wish there was a way to skip cut scenes instead of merely fast-forwarding them. I like that the game forces you to use different characters instead of getting too comfortable with the same set of 4.

Maybe in some ways I'm glad I didn't get a near perfect run of trophies the first time as it gives me more incentive to unlock them in the 2nd go around.

While it isn't as deep as say FC/SC, I still think Cold Steel has a lot to offer - and with the way the game ended, I am really looking forward to Cold Steel II.

Edit: August 15 - Finally got the platinum for Cold Steel, certainly a bit of a grind, and it may be the longest I've spent on a game in quite some time. Would gotten the Platinum in about 85-90 hours or so, but the requirement for 100 hours had me idling the game all day today on my Vita. I was worried about burn in, but I seem to have managed to avoid that.

Not sure what I want to move on to next. I've had my eye on Ys Memories of Celceta for a while, so I'll download that and start next. Cold Steel has got me hankering for more Falcom.

19. I am Setsuna
Sad Chrono Trigger in snow.

20. An Octave Higher.
A visual novel about what happens when you add a piano to the first season of The Legend of Korra. Oh, and there's this really awesome hommage to Chrono Trigger near the end of the true ending. The scene doesn't look out of place if you've never played the game, in fact, it looks pretty epic, but if you do recognise it... Anyway, what I really liked about the setting is that magic followed a clear set of rules and could even be described in formulas. Heck, one of the characters builds a simple calculator using this magical science and explains how to achieve AND, OR and so on using a system of tubes and two types of magic (fire and water).

21. Ben There, Dan That!
It reminded me of Sissy's Magical Ponycorn Adventure.

22. Please don't touch anything
I touched everything! :D

23. Legend of Mysteria
A magical murder mystery! Well, okay, it's mostly basic adventuring and collecting evidence (steal all the diaries!), and the writing was kind of poor, but it was a really neat idea for a game. And I paid like 30 cents for this, so whatever. I had a good time.

24. Over the Hills and Far Away
A kinetic novel set during the War of 1812, following a red coat on the run and the native girl he meets while hiding from the storm in an abandoned barn. I cried.

Yeah, this year's list is turning out a little weird... Most games do fit snugly on the 'puzzle - adventure - RPG' spectrum, though. I'm not that far out of my comfort zone. It's more like I found a good spot, started digging for games, grabbing the most obvious gems first, and instead of going to another spot after that, just kept digging and digging.

Whenever there's a big Steam Sale going on, I end up going through all the recommendations to get cards and adding a bunch of nearly random stuff to my wishlist. And then I buy all sorts of games that are 80-99% off... Fortunately, many of these games are rather short (2-5 hours). The most expensive game I bought on Steam this year was We Know the Devil (7,99 - full price) and that was for a review.

I end up enjoying most of them, but I have to admit I'm having a hard time calling some of those things games. Wouldn't a kinetic novel, a visual novel that features no interaction beyond pressing space to get to the next big of text, not be more at home on a list of books read?

7.) Stella Glow
8.) Adventures of Mana (Platinum)
9.) Trails of Cold Steel (Platinum)
10.) Ys: Memories of Celceta (ongoing Platinum run)

Wrapped up Memores of Celceta last night. By the time I picked up the last chest, I was sweating bullets when the trophy for all chests collected didn't pop. Ran around frantically for an hour or so until I found the one I'd missed in the final dungeon. I ended up enjoying the game a lot more than I thought I would, considering I wasn't Ys Seven's biggest fan. Still on the fence about how I feel about multiple characters in a Ys game, since I just prefer to run around as Adol.

Anyways, going for the Platinum trophy for this game seems doable, though Nightmare mode so far matches up to what it claims to be. Very solid game with good pacing, and frantic combat which is fun, though I wish it didn't force you to spend 'time' play as other characters for trophies, but whatever.

I'm driven by compulsions of "not missing out" every single day, so it has always struck me as odd that I've never really understood the drive people have for platinum trophies.

That's not a criticism of people who do, it's just an observation that it goes beyond my current understanding. To me there's such a big difference between seeing everything a game has to offer and getting that platinum trophy or every achievement or whatever. Especially since a lot of achievements require going beyond just experiencing the game in whole and instead require accomplishing feats that, in my opinion, add nothing to the experience.

I also got platinum in Danganronpa 2, Adventures of Mana, and Ys Celceta. FWIW, I think that the grind to level 99 and the handful of missables in Adventures of Mana was more nerve-wracking than any of the trophies for Celceta. But yeah, that "time spent as a character" thing was dumb.

If you haven't played it and want a challenging-but-fun platinum for Vita, I stand by Gravity Rush for just being ... different. And interesting.

I need to get my "Trails" games on one of these days.

ALSO -- Ultra Despair Girls platinum is surprisingly challenging! Fortunately, you can revisit by chapter, so that cuts out a lot of potential back-tracking. I liked Ultra Despair girls quite a bit -- at first for its villains, then I got over the villains and I was just happy to be meeting the siblings of the Dangan1 cast. :)

I wholeheartedly agree about the Mana trophies. As simple as the game is, if you aren't on your toes it can really hurt haha. I missed buying one of the spells somewhere in the middle of the game thinking I'd already gotten one from a mob drop, but turns out I didn't. Spent a couple hours backtracking through shops etc to find it. That level 99 grind though - you could really screw that up if started distributing stats haphazardly. Thankfully I found out pretty early on so that minimized the grind since it certainly could have been far worse.

I remember looking at the Gravity Rush trophies and deciding against it for some reason. As fun as the game was, I only wanted to play through it once. UDG is also on my list to play, but maybe next year as I seem to only do 1 Danganronpa per year.

@Klutz - I agree - I wasn't always like this - needing to platinum games. But after a certain point, I figured why not? Sure it's an arbitrary bar that's been set by the developers of the game as to what constitutes 100% completion, but I've grown to like it. I'm of the mind that there's a lot to do, see, read and play, but as a gamer there is something very satisfying about popping that Platinum trophy. I'm the type of guy that refuses to re-read books (but will re-watch certain movies) on the basis that I'd rather have new experiences, so it's kind of weird that I do indeed go back and sometimes play through a 2nd time just to get that trophy. Even some games that I enjoyed very much (Lightning Returns) I stopped short of getting the Platinum for some reason.

That being said, I don't go for every Platinum trophy I come across - just the ones that I feel are reasonably attainable. Plus, when you sync your trophies with psnprofiles or another trophy tracking service, it only adds fuel to the fire. I think I have some innate desire to rise in the leader boards of gamers world wide. For example, I'll never go back to get La Mulana EX's platinum as even the base game is super tough, but Day of the Tentacle was a gimmie considering the number of times I'd beat that on PC back in the day. In some ways I guess you could look at it as controlled madness, as I more or less pour myself into the game until it's done.
