Re: The one that got away
AC 2 was probably my favourite of the bunch but a glitched trophy for collectibles is most definitely a kick to the balls. And I think the Brotherhood MP is still on the perpetual “to do” list of most of my mates.
And 'Hard to the Core' is one of two I need for DS2 as well. Although that's because I never actually went for it. I just got distracted by something less punishing
I had to laugh man, it was like I wrote that Eat Lead paragraph myself. I'm short about three trophies in that game and I could grab the lot going through the hard playthrough but it's just so badly made I can't stick with it. I got as far as that Russian general fella and a combination of frame rate apocalypse, retarded cover mechanics and AI that pretty much spawned with their guns to my head killed off any ambition I had of ever finishing that heap of shit.
Medal of Honour is also something we have in common, I enjoyed the MP to a degree but I could never seem to get better at it and none of my mates were playing at the time so I just dropped it. Never bothered with the Tier 1 stuff either.
Well done on the 'Hard to the Core' mate. Like I said above, I haven't worked up the nerve to put myself through that yet. It's the sort of thing I'll start at the crack of daw and just dedicate the day to so I don't need to worry about wasting saves.
Another game that I would really like to finish but keep putting off is Dragon Age: Origins. I still need a handful of trophies and while most are doable it's the 'Traveller' trophy I'm wary of. It's for entering every area of the game but I can't find a definitive list online and the thought of doing another huge playthrough only to miss it is withering.
