I love collecting PlayStation trophies! For whatever reason I get all giddy and excited whenever I see one pop up on my screen while playing a game. Xbox and Steam achievements just don’t have the same effect one me. Probably for one simple reason: those platforms don’t have shiny Platinum Trophies!
Yep! I thoroughly enjoy a good platinum trophy quest if a game really clicks with me. It’s a good excuse to see everything a game has to offer and walk away with a shiny virtual memento that shows off how much I loved it.
When the awesome Gaming Omnivore pitched a brilliant trophy hunt collaboration idea on the Later LevelsSupport 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.
There was once a time when I was obsessed with the Assassin’s Creed series. I have so many collector’s edition statues it isn’t even funny. However, Assassins Creed Unity broke my interest in the series. I didn’t hate the game, but I didn’t love the game either.
Arno the protagonist was a meh character to me, QA issues (let’s never forget the floating eyeballs), and all the forced multiplayer elements left a bad taste in my mouth (more specifically, I can’t get the platinum trophy because of two damn multiplayer trophies… grr).
Word on the internet was that Ubisoft learned from their mistakes and made Assassin’s Creed great again after the Unity stumble. I’ve been meaning to jump back into the series for a long time, but never got around to it until now. So a huge thanks to Gaming Omnivore for giving me the excuse to!

Ha! Defined process and blogging don’t exactly belong in the same sentence for me. My normal week days are so scheduled and routine that I just can’t be driven to take the same approach when it comes to the hobbies I do for fun. I need a break from all the structure, dammit!
From whimsical Saturday morning cartoons to brilliant sarcasm in adult situations, animated entertainment comes in so many forms that can appeal to many audiences!
Welcome back to another installment of me answering questions for Just Geeking By‘s series of blogging prompts called Seriously Geeky Sundays. This week is all about animated topics. Definitely check out Heather’s creative prompts and take part in the fun if you want! I’m absolutely loving her questions so far.
So… without anymore intro babbling from me, here are my answers to Just Geeking By’s animating questions for this week. Thank you, Heather!
My biggest personal ritual is probably the regular weekday routine I stick to very closely. Yeah. My offline life is honestly pretty boring, but I am actually quite grateful to still have most of the normality I took for granted in the pre-coronapocalypse era. Stability is where it’s at, yo!
Anyway, brace yourselves… here’s the super uninteresting typical weekday routine of a forever single asexual woman, and old crazy cat lady in training! On the weekends I pretty much just do whatever I feel like (usually sleep/video games and/or go on adventures with offline friends).
