I have bested you, Sound Shapes Death Mode. I have bested you! Now I just need to do all the level creation stuff and I’ll have myself another double Platinum. Delightful little game.
But enough about me, this is meant to be all about you lot!
Burgess is the man sharing his rig this week, giving us a great shot through the window panel into the side of him PC. I’ll hand over to him to explain all the gubbins in the box:
Here is my PC. It took years to build due to money but its finally pretty much to a point where I am happy with it!
- Intel Core i7
- AMD Radeon 6950 2gb
- 8gb Tracer RAM (In that picture there is 16gb of my old RAM)
- Water-cooling loop
I do like a water-cooled computer. It has that delectable mix of risk and reward, a bit like eating that 99% poisonous fish.
What wise souls out there have been playing Sound Shapes, like I have? Go on, put your hands up. Yes, that includes you Youles, I know you’ve been playing it and have the double Platinum as a consequence. Good job with that and your myriad of DLC trophies, but could you please slow it down a bit?
A heartfelt message from Taylor Made:
Dear Youles & McProley
Once upon a time I used to be a king of trophies on my PSN list no one touched me, everyone played cod every one was below level 8. Then you 2 came along made my trophies look like a beginner in the trophy department damn you both damn you!!!
Luckily he doesn’t have more of you guys on his list, as we have a bunch of fastest Platinum trophies this week. Samiro05 nabs the fastest for The Sims 3, Crazy_Del for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, R1MJAW for THPS HD and Bambo claiming the top spot for Batman: Arkham City. Surely that can’t be right? He’s only just got it in the last few days!
Well nuts to that, since we have lots of not-so-fast Platinums too. Blackredyellow dropped 130 hours to get Skyrim, whilst Crazy_Del enjoyed his play time with Saints Row The Third and KeRaSh with Alice: Madness Returns. However, the nicest tale of trophies with an older game comes from Darth Newdar:
I achieved my 100% of the trophies in Flower. The game was a complete joy, and some of the trophies are brilliantly inventive – such as the “Welcome Back” trophy, awarded for playing after a week long break. When you add in getting the hardest trophy – Pure, awarded for not being electrocuted in level 5 – on my first attempt, it is definitely the most relaxing trophy list I’ve 100%-ed.
It really is a very special game, and a lovely note to wrap up this segment.
Finally, I must apologise, but I wasn’t able to keep track of all the comments this week. Once again, Comment of the Week is on a break, but it will absolutely return for next week! (Probably)
Instead, I’ll prompt you to put your commenting prowess to trying to win actual things! That’s right, just leave us some suggestions for coverage you’d like to see from the TSA boys at Eurogamer Expo, and you could win one of five pairs of tickets to actually go there.
