When the awesome Gaming Omnivore pitched a brilliant trophy hunt collaboration idea on the Later Levels Support Role Discord channel (all bloggers welcome there, by the way, so feel free to join) I was all for it. After some discussions we decided to set Assassin’s Creed Syndicate in our sights and blog about our journeys to platinum.
Here is what went down during the final week of my trophy hunt! You can see what happened during week 1 and 2 here and here.
TL;DR – Mission accomplished! Thanks to a bad migraine episode where I could hardly see anything and my arm and tongue went numb, I was on the verge of freaking the fuck out. I also didn’t have anyone around to reach out to so… yeah. That wasn’t fun.
To distract my panicking brain (only I can save me from me, after all), I focused on grinding out two of the most annoying trophies in Syndicate (running over 5,000 things with a carriage and playing 300 with 50 bad guys on a train roof). Focusing on those grinds and nothing else that was happening seriously helped me get through that. Thank you Evie and Jacob! ❤
Overall, I freaking loved my time with Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. Evie Frye is now one of my top 5 video game sheroes and I really enjoyed the story. Exploring Victorian-era London was such a treat! I also can’t praise the grappling hook mechanic enough.
Yup. My faith in the Assassin’s Creed series is restored.
My next platinum quest is going to be Mass Effect 3, in case anyone is curious. I’ve platinumed all the other Mass Effect games and I think I’m finally ready to jump back into BioWare’s universe after taking a much needed break from it.
