So I decided I wanted to do a blind play-through of the new God of War. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I also enjoy going for platinum trophies. Like an idiot, I assumed beating the game on its hardest difficulty would be required for plat. If only I could go back in time, and place a hand on my ignorant self's shoulder just before picking the starting difficulty of Give Me God of War. I should have just changed difficulties after the hell it put me through during my first enemy encounter. It took me an HOUR to get past this first encounter.. an hour! But my masochistic self was determined to get that "platinum trophy". Every regular enemy encounter for the first half of the game was like its own boss battle! One to three hits from anything would kill me. Finally, I began accumulating better gear and skills, but it was still painstakingly hard. By the time I reached Arena V on my first walk through of Muspelheim, I cracked and looked up if beating the game on GMGoW was required for plat. After my downstairs neighbors finished banging on my floor for all the profanity I must have been shouting, I decided to myself, "I've come this far; I am not switching difficulties until I've made GMGoW my bitch."
I ended up progressing the story line a little before coming back to the Muspelheim Arenas and making the Arena 6 Valkyrie my bitch. Then I killed some other Valkyries and beat the game, making them and Baldur my bitch. Then I made my way back to Muspelheim and completed all six of the new "Impossible" Trials, making this realm my bitch. Then I went to Nifelheim to seal up some realm tears and make the Valkyrie their my bitch. Then, at long last, I went the Council of Valkyries, summoned their queen, and made her my bitch, rewarding me with the final trophy I needed to plat the game. And that is how I ignorantly platinumed the game by only playing GMGoW difficulty.
I didn't magically git gud after deciding to continue playing on GMGoW. The game was still incredibly hard, but I decided to post some videos for those interested of my most difficult challenges. What an incredible game.
- Valarie Queen Sigrun
- How to get 14,500 Mist Echos and 2 Anchors of Fog in one rotation of Niflheim. #f*ck Niflheim.
- Muspelheim Trials – Trial V: Impossible. The hardest Arena Trial IMO.
- Endgame equipment question
- Valkyrie Queen on hard difficulty was a bit of a letdown.
- Quit a long time ago. Came back and it’s still impossible to climb playing healer
