Goin’ For The Plat!!! – NIER


Welcome to the brand new feature on Kicks For Games. Here on Goin’ For The Plat!!! I will attempt to increase my amount of Platinum Trophies. I will try to describe the anger, joy and frustration while I push toward the final goal of every game. Maybe some trophy hunting tips might come into play also. For now all games will be single player centric. Multiplayer platinums are an entirely different beast but are not out of the question. Look for Game Profiles of the titles during every week to get a recap of the games. Enjoy.

As Nier was a game featured in last weeks Goin’ For The Plat!!! I was unable to secure the grind heavy Platinum.Since starting my new playthrough I have completed only 4 trophies. All the remaining trophies take some time to complete. I have spent large amounts of time fishing. In order to complete quests and some forging of weapons you need to fish. I hit a point in the story where I must push forward before I can complete anymore quests. So far I have spent all my money in order to complete quests and purchase weapons which in turn halts progression towards other trophies. The platinum will take the entire week to achieve.
