Following on from last week, we have the second half of our new coverage of the trophy leaderboards on TSA. Head over to page 2 for more on that.
Before we get there, though, our previous existing content:
A late cry out on Twitter and we have some more photos for this segment. Please do take the time to send me something using the entry form at the bottom of this page, Twitter, email, carrier pigeon…
Today we have two people featured, with Sympozium first to answer me. In true blurry-cam style, I can only assume that all of this is prototype hardware and very hush-hush. It’s either that or it really is just a Vita, PS3, PC and monitor.
Or maybe Sympozium is the guy that rages, and he’s disguised himself as a computer monitor? Perhaps we’ll never know…
Second is Bodachi with much clearer photos, so obviously much less steeped in mystery. So, here we go:
First picture is the game that generally eats all of my studying time, Assassin’s Creed 3. My PS3 is centre piece within the living room underneath that is the Sky+ box. Picture two you can see my little Vita which I play any time I’m out and about. Next to that would be my Nexus 7 which I only play a few games on and mostly watch Netflix and read comics on. Picture three which has all the games that I currently own besides digital downloads, as well as my PS1 games shoved to the back. Yes I know, pink paint, looks lovely doesn’t it?
I don’t know about anyone else, but it took me a second to realise that the last photo was mirrored. Yes, I’m dumb.
Boy, oh, boy, there’s been an invasion! A glut of speedy trophies have appeared out of almost nowhere!
Wolf-OF-Chaos and BadBoyBoogie staged a pincer attack styled raid on the fastest boards taking 13 between them in one fell swoop! BBB nabbed Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Dirt 3, PES 2010 and 2011 and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Wolf claimed Prototype 2, Captain America, Dead Island, Silent Hill 3, The Darkness 2 and X-Men Destiny.
Now that’s a lot of trophies!
It doesn’t quite end there, though, as R1MJAW took the Sports Champions 2 fastest trophy and topgearsam got the Unit 13 Platinum (though not the fastest).
A whole boat load of people are closing in on the various trophies from recent games, though. Element666 says he’s nearly there on Assassin’s Creed: Liberation, and I know that Yogdog and plenty of others are chasing after the Black Ops 2 platinum. Assassin’s Creed 3 is still hogging many a person’s time, and so on.
Keep plugging away!
However, a quick little mention is needed for JohnnyBoy‘s poor old PS3, which saw the dreaded Yellow Light of Death hit swiftly this last week. Thankfully he was able to salvage the saves, taking a leaf out of Sir Alex Ferguson’s half time notebook and bringing out the hair drier to coax the old black beast into doing a backup. So, enjoy the shiny new Super Slim you got for yourself, Johnny.
Alright, so as I mentioned above, we now have the leaderboards integrated into the Chronicle, with all of the groundwork being done by the wonderful a inferior race. Last week it was the turn of the Fastest Platinums, but this week we’ll see the full leaderboard make its first appearance.
Before you head over to page 2 for the leaderboards, I leave you with the submission form:
