Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Trophies: 51/51
I have finally completed the final requirement for the game, the spec ops misson. At first, getting back to the game after some heavy fighting and RPG games, I tend to lose focus and my aiming scatters.
There was one mission, Big Brother, where I need to have a second player to play it. Luckily I got an online friend to help. Thank you GlobalFreq, for making my dream in completing this game turning to reality.
We only had that one full session of mission to get to know each other. He was one hella good comrade to have and we managed to finish the mission in some few good tries.
After the mission with him, I continued my journey to solo the other spec ops. The one that was most difficult for me always involved in me fighting juggernauts, heavily armored, hard to kill and kept on ramming to you while firing their machine guns. I remembered the last mission on echo, where you need to fend off more than 10 jugs in the favela. With only a grenade luncher and some rpds, I need to work around the jugs by hiding beside the cars and kept attacking, while watching myself of any sudden attack on the rear or side. Funnily enuf, if you position yourself right near the burned / destroyed car, the jugs could not attack you, and if you fire the grenade while hiding, the jugs would just stay there and do nothing. It did take me tries as when the number of jugs gotten below 5, they tend to divide and conquer, attacking me from different angles.
Another hard one is the snatch and grab mission where you need to battle shadow company and few jugs. The shadow company soldiers really have good aims and know when to hide. They would fire at me until I almost bleed to death and when I try to retaliate using the sniper, they would hide away and scramble position by communicating among them. After getting to the last part/area of the mission, I found a spot where I can hide inside a broken airplane. Its just a cramped small space, enuf for one person to crawl inside. While inside this, I managed to kill some few shadow company and a few jugs as well. Which greatly enhanced my chance of winning instead of fighting them head to head. But, being down their feet, crawling like some kind of insect while the go about to find an angle to shoot you is terrorizing.
Battling jugs on the oil refinery in echo is also a good memory for me. I learned that the sniper weapon barret .cal is an excellent choice in holding them back. But one need to shoot above the chest area. In the mission, I set up some mines to help me along the way.
All in all, I had a great time with this game and am really looking forward to Modern Warfare 3. I proved to myself that if I tried hard enuf to achieve something, I would get it someday and triumphant along with new skills i developed along the way. I would definitely remember what a friend of mine did to me, leaving me alone to fight the spec ops alone, ut its thanks to him that I found some good new friends to play online with and mastered some key FPS skills that would help me in my journey of gaming. Next on my list should be Final Fantasy XIII.
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Trophies: 48/48
After 2 years, I have finally managed to master Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. Looking back, the reason I didn't manage to complete this game was the lack of skill in fps /action game. I stop playing the game after I have completed the main part of the story, to my surprise, in order to Plat this game, I needed to beat it in Hard and Crushing mode. Back then I was new to PS3 and felt like being bullied by the A.I, I have decided to quit the game. After I completed Bayonetta and BattleFantasia earlier this year, the games that raises my awareness, agility and cunningness handling the Dual Shock 3, I was thirsty for more action. And looking at the shelf, I saw Uncharted: Drake's Fortune seemingly challenging me, tempting me to finish it. I did, and this 2 years have proved to level up my gaming abilities where the A.I in the game was just another bad guy.
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Trophies: 47/51
This FPS tends to get more and more exciting for me this year than it ever did last year. This is due to the fact that I love FPS now more than ever after finishing Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (although UC: DF is actually a third person action game ) I am now trying to finish the Spec Ops mode of the game. It is fun going at it alone, but some of the mission requires 2 players. I remembered back when I first bought this game, I bought two units instead of one. Bought it for a friend. Hoped that we could play this game together, even bought a bluetooth headset along, but to my surprise, he completed the spec ops mission with another friend and I was left to battle the spec ops alone. Well, no harms done, it did develop my fps skills even more and I can now settle most of the mission alone, by learning some tips from youtube videos. But having a company is not bad at all. I might finish the spec ops along with a new friend I made from a forum. The problem is to find the suitable time to play it.
Battle Fantasia Trophies: 62/62
After all the hard work I put into this game, I can finally say that I have completed / mastered it. The few final parts of mastering it for me was completing the story 100% with every characters, getting End Of Deathbringer and Gatchi / Parrying his Apocalypse Flame and defeating him with 100% life.
After getting the End Of Deathbringer as a playable character, I started to train with him to gatchi his apocalypse flame which lands 22 hit. After some training, I managed to beat his apocalypse flame in training mode, but when it comes to the real deal, fighting him in the arcade mode is a whole different ball game.
In Arcade mode, and at the highest level of difficulty (very hard), Deathbringer would execute his normal routine, that is, when you are far away from him, he would either joust which connects 8 - 10 hits depending on the character you are using. Or he would power up his apocalypse flame 1 time. The third time he power up, he would execute the move.
Playing as Urs, I once managed to parry his 22 AF hits, but then playing the chicken game, running away from him and waiting to parry his joust (to recover heat) he would then perform the AF again!. For the first AF it is pure luck that I managed to parry it all, but for the second, I ate it at first hit to all the 22 hits...
I took sometime off, and play other games to loosen up the tension felt. Played some Castle Crashers with my daughter, and some Final Fantasy XIII just to take my mind of Battle Fantasia.
Once I came back, I played around with Urs and Ashley. To my surprise, these two characters has different gatchi timings. For Urs, the timing is strict, you cannot just pound the gathci button hoping it would work, you need to hear the sound of the parry. But for Ashley, you can tap the button in a melodious manner, if you are a musician, or have some musical timing skill you would notice that the tap required has a unique timing and if you attune yourself to it, you would gatchi the attack with breeze.
Nonetheless, I still have the problem of EoDB performing the AF more than once. What I would do to overcome this is... I denied EoDB's chance to perform AF during the first 10 - 20 seconds of the fight. If I see him charging the AF up, I would go and perform a throw, if the throw is successful, it would reset his current charge, example if he charged at 1 and you perform a throw, the next charge would also be 1. Whenever he perform his joust I would gatchi all the 5 - 9 hits which would recharge my heat to level 3, then I would punish him by heating up, performing super special, and repeat the step while at the same time resetting his AF charge. After I got his health to a critical minimum (one you could finish with 1 heated super special) I would let him charge his AF to level 3 and try to parry it once he performed it. I know it sounds easier said than done, but I did tried and tried again, without giving up, I knew that I would eventually be able to get the "you want me to what!?" trophy.
Parrying the AF 22 hit and finishing EoDB, the top right off the screen pops up the first gold trophy, and then shortly after, the second trophy which is the platinum. It was an emotional experience to obtain that Platinum trophy and I am glad to be one of the few person in this world to obtain it. Once PSN is up, I will know whether I am the first to get it on Gamespot. And I don't know of any other achivement (home t shirt, or other) that comes with it.
And with this I conclude my journey with this game. Time to finish all the other games in my backlog. Maybe I'll start with Final Fantasy XIII
