Sticking to the old British stereotype of complaining about the weather, it’s got a bit nippy hasn’t it? You know it’s cold when you can feel it seeping through the soles of your toe shoes!
Those of you who missed it last week will be glad to hear that the trophy leaderboard is back in full force this week, with all the holiday and new year gaming taken into account. Who’s up, and who’s down?
But first up we have the gaming rigs, this week featuring topgearsam. It might not be the most extravagant set up, but as with last week’s showing from Roynaldo, there’s lovely simplicity to proceedings. Symmetry, too. I like symmetry!
A TV set between two thin bookshelves, and stacks of stuff tucked in underneath it. On the right is the PS3, with a bunch of gubbins to the left, including some move controllers, a white cue ball, PS Vita, phone and a Union Jack emblazoned laptop. That last one had me stumped at first glance as to what it was.
If you’d like to share your own set up, please do use the submission form at the bottom of this page. It doesn’t matter how humdrum you consider it to be, or spectacularly silly, send it in!
A rather hectic week for one or two reasons here. First up, everyone still seems to be playing Far Cry 3!
Bmg_123 finished the SP, but looks like he might miss out on the Platinum as he doesn’t really fancy revisiting the island. Similarly, kjkg just needs the co-op trophies to get the Platinum, and Klart is only a handful away too… Origami Killer, though, has added it to his catalogue.
Youles might not have got himself any big trophies this week, but I’m mentioning him because he joined in with the fabulous and long standing Dirt Showdown meets for the first time. Lovely to see games still being played months and months after release!
Apparently, R1MJAW is a bad lover. That is according to the ending he received from Catherine. Don’t worry, dude, I’m sure Youles was right when he said that “Your choices in Catherine have no relevence to you as a lover in real life.” Hopefully it won’t put him off his A-game when he and Motalla next meet for churning through Dead or Alive 5 online matches. Motalla’s still got 785 to go for his trophy!
Elswhere, Allan_Treebeard completed Arkham City (A game I really should return to, too!), whilst Wilboss finished The Walking Dead and Wonderbook. Crazy_Del got both PSASBR Platinums and Freezebug polished off the Counterstrike Global Offensive Platinum and Need for Speed: Most Wanted. NfS:MW coming after a long time hunting down that final security gate, which was hiding in plain sight!
But the headliner this week is one more Flexxible, who claimed far too many Platinums for his own good over this last week! Cross Edge, Fairytale Fights, White Knight Chronicles and Metal Gear Solid 2 were all claimed for the fastest record boards, but he also has Motorstorm: Pacific Rift and Apocalypse, Enslaved, Duke Nukem Forever and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 to his name.
That’s almost your lot this week. You can head over to page two for the trophy leaderboards, but to finish off this page, we have the usual submission form for photos and accomplishments. Don’t hold back!
