Trophies might not be for everybody, however for me and plenty of others Trophy looking is enjoyable technique of reaching that candy, candy 100% completion on a recreation. A much-deserved prize for doing all the things there’s to do. Numerous video games have straightforward necessities for Platinum Trophies, and infrequently sure quests or challenges related to them will reward you with cool stuff for going the additional mile. However whereas accumulating Trophies is usually lots of enjoyable, typically one comes alongside that makes us query our decisions in life. To these we are saying, “F This Trophy”.
This week’s ‘F this Trophy’ is the DMW Grasp Trophy from Disaster Core: Closing Fantasy VII Reunion. The DMW is an odd slot machine-style mechanic that always ticks over throughout battles, its three reels displaying the faces of characters you’ve met throughout the story. When these reels align and show three of the identical character, it triggers a Restrict Break; a strong potential related to that character.
The DMW Grasp Trophy requires you to attain 100% completion for every of the 18 Restrict Breaks within the recreation. Now you may be saying ‘Hey, Jada, that doesn’t sound so unhealthy – Restrict Breaks are superior! Channeling Sephiroth’s Octaslash, Aerith’s Therapeutic Wave, and all the opposite character’s particular skills in battle may help flip the tide, so that you need to use them each time doable.’
Sure, that is true. However within the case of this Trophy, I am not chasing the precise restrict breaks. I have already got all 18 of them. As a substitute, I must unlock each flashback reminiscence related to every Restrict Break. These are cutscenes that set off in the midst of the battle and name again to prior moments within the story. They’re sort of annoying as they decelerate the motion in a battle, which is a sin by itself, however that is not what we’re speaking about at this time. The difficulty with this Trophy is that progress, moderately than being awarded primarily based on talent, time, or effort, is awarded primarily based on random LUCK.
Every of the 18 Restrict Breaks have six distinctive reminiscences, however there isn’t any method of triggering particular ones. These reminiscences are pulled from the story you’ve already witnessed, so that you first should put within the work and full the entire recreation to make sure that the DMW system can name on each single reminiscence. However after that, it is completely out of your palms: the DMW rolls Restrict Breaks at random, after which it’s going to select one of many reminiscences at random. So to hit 100% completion on the DMW, you… simply must maintain taking part in till it occurs.
You may enhance your odds to a point. The Restrict Break system is predicated on Luck; not simply the real-world idea, however the in-game stat, too. Specialised materia and gear you’ll be able to equip to spice up your Luck does assist, however you might be nonetheless in the end on the mercy of unpredictable RNG.
Now I do know there are lots of people who could have higher luck than me on the subject of this Trophy, nevertheless it took me 12 hours (12 hours!) to get it. I hit a degree the place I solely wanted two extra flashback reminiscences to get the Trophy, and so I left my recreation operating in a degree one mission, letting enemies shoot me within the face, within the hope that the suitable Restrict Breaks and the suitable reminiscences would roll up on the DMW. I left for a birthday celebration, went out for dinner, got here house, performed a few missions of Mario Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, after which picked Disaster Core again up. I nonetheless hadn’t gotten the 2 last flashbacks I wanted. Like, what the hell?
It’s possible you’ll ask what made this Trophy price getting. Nicely, except for being another Trophy nearer to the Platinum, DMW Grasp additionally unlocks the Genji Armor, which occurs to be probably the greatest items of drugs ever allotted by a glorified slot machine.
Earlier than any of you within the feedback come for me saying that you just received this Trophy sooner or simpler, I’m joyful that you just didn’t have as many points as I did. I really like Closing Fantasy video games and have been asking for a Disaster Core remake for the reason that PS4 launched. It’s nonetheless considered one of my favourite PSP video games of all instances. And I am certain some within the feedback will say I simply didnt know what I used to be doing. However that is my second time going by way of the sport, I had maxed out Luck, was optimized with two mastered materias for Cissnei to extend the probabilities of my slots lining up, and had mastered materias to enhance the chances of getting the character Restrict Breaks I wanted to indicate up. Simply bear in mind the true kicker is that even when the DMW triggers a Restrict Break, there isn’t a assure you get a flashback, after which should you do get a flashback, there isn’t any assure it is the one you want.
So F This Trophy, Disaster Core, and F random quantity mills.
