I had decided to try to get all the GHL trophies on PS4 before it’s shut down near the end of 2018. All August 2018 I played EDF 4.1 instead, thinking I’d put my all into it Sept., Oct., and Nov. …
While playing EDF I came to grips with, isn’t EDF actually harder to Platinum? Yes and No, but resoundingly YES I need to Platinum EDF 4.1. Why? I have three other EDF games, one on PS3 and two on PS Vita, that probably won’t get Platinumed, hopefully on PS Vita both EDF 2017 and EDF 2 will happen, but 2025 on PS3 won’t for sure.
I want to Platinum EDF 4.1 on PS4 very, very much. I love the game. But playing alone isn’t so easy like on Hardest, I’m on Machine Squad … that and most after it are nye impossible for Wing Diver alone.
The unfortunate state of EDF 4.1
Any playthrough of a level for completion of a difficulty only counts for online if played online, or offline if played offline. This means one cannot play all the levels alone they can get done, and go online to get help with the remainder.
There is 2-player split-screen offline play … one can choose to use two controllers for two characters that way, all alone, that can help progressing armor accumulation, and also get through some levels, but having a second person controlling that second character helps all the more. Some people don’t have anyone else, so playing online is a better choice, but one should have friends to make that work out best, and then the total difference of playing online, how much more health enemies have … it’s way harder than playing offline. At least with others playing with you three to four of you are attacking and reviving each other as need be.
I live in a house with my family. Two others in my family like EDF. Getting them to finish my online Hardest Wing Diver playthrough though … they won’t. We played it together, and have about 3 levels left. So since then I started Hardest as Wing Diver offline and got all they way down the list to Machine Squad, and splot, there I am stuck. We did all together start playing as other characters after they wouldn’t finish Hardest that I spoke of earlier.
We took a break, and since that they won’t play with me now, the last few weeks, and I’m frustrated. I want to just get further and further as much as possible so I can Platinum this game before EDF 5 arrives on Western Shores. They don’t want to Platinum it. They are not trophy hunters.
Neither am I, it’s just that I am a select Platinum Hunter.
