“It’s an easy platinum, and it’s PSTV compatible,” said the Internet.
“It’s on sale,” said PSN.
“Mmm,” I said.
Yes, the NA version of the game is PSTV compatible. I downloaded it and played for about 90 minutes, and it was one of the most frustrating games I’ve ever encountered. It was my first twin-stick shooter, and I never lasted more than a minute and a half without dying. I think I only got 27K points, and you need 100K to unlock the secondary arena mode. My mind just couldn’t handle the bullets coming at me from all directions, and I hated it.
Two weeks later, I decided to torture myself some more and give it another go. Surprisingly, I found myself doing better immediately, and I actually started enjoying myself. After about half an hour, I got around 58K points and knew that I could make it. Nearly two hours later, I had the platinum trophy.
Even though most people find the game easy, there are a few of us who do not. A few words of advice, gathered from various message boards and YouTube comments, as well as my own thoughts: -If you completely suck (like me), come back after an extended break. -The key is not getting hit. The combo multiplier makes getting 100K incredibly fast if you can get enough kills while avoiding all enemy attacks. -The levels are random, and they don’t get harder as they go along. So don’t get discouraged if you get hit; just try to keep going. You may get a string of level layouts & guns that are easy for you. -In arena mode, stay on the left side of the screen so you only have to worry about projectiles coming from one direction. Take out the closest enemies first. -Turn off the ink effects on the main menu to make everything easier to see. -On the PSTV, the L and R shoulder buttons are mapped to L2 and R2 by default (with L1 and R1 being unused; a few other games do this as well, which I don’t understand why). You have to hold down the R trigger to fire. I find it harder to hold down the R2 button for an extended period of time than the R1 button, so I remapped the controls. Since you can’t do this in-game, you have to change them in the PSTV system’s Accessibility options.
Soul cold, indeed. There won't be a time when I'm at ease.
