I told you that Bethesda don’t wait around once there’s info out there. The latest update, which includes trophies and a number of game fixing changes. The game no longer stalls when you recieve notifications, which is great and means I can get to playing the game, albeit from the beginning, again.

The patch is only available in Europe at the time of writing, but i’m sure it’ll make it’s way across the atlantic soon enough.

Come January, or soon thereafter, trophy patches like this one should be a thing of the past. I had almost given up hope that Bethesda were actually going to patch the game, but thankfully I have been proven wrong. Hopefully the trophy patch will be the same one that fixes all the game crashing bugs that Fallout has on the PS3, which means I’ll actually be able to play it signed in soon (get in!). On a recent IGN podcast it was revealed that Pete Hines had said that Bethesda wouldn’t talk about the patch until they were ready to release it. Surely this means it’s imminent then? I guess we’ll have to wait and see. Hit the jump for the list, please be aware the list may contain some SPOILERS Continue reading

The PlayStation Blog has informed us that the recently announced trophy patch will go live at sometime today. Said patch adds 1,000 new levels to the game as well as the aformentioned trophies. It is also hinted that there will be more updates for the black and white puzzler sometime in the future.

At the time of writing the patch is yet to go live, but I trust the PS Blog, so i’m sure it’ll turn up at some point.

If you haven’t yet checked out the trophy list click here.

Yes, Sony’s black and white puzzler Echochrome is finally getting a trophy patch. Fans of the pretty ingenious game will be able to finally collect trophies for all the crazily hard, but extremely fun, stuff they’ve been doing. It might booster the userbase of the game too, which is always good.

Bronze:

  • Half The Journey – Complete all stages in A to D
  • Rock Bottom – Fall 100 times while completing stages
  • Flyin’ High – Leap 100 times while completing stages
  • Take A Hike – Take 10,000 steps while completing stages
  • Shadow – Collect 500 echoes
  • Gimme Five – Upload 5 stages

Silver:

  • Traversal – Complete all stages in A to G

Gold:

  • Total Traversal – Complete courses A to G
  • echochrome master – Collect all trophies

Not too many to contend with there, some easy some hard. I’d have been nice if there were more, but then again there’s so much to do in the game it’d be hard to not be repetetive.



Trophies Mandatory As Of January by Anthony Barlow

VideoGamer.com is reporting that ‘Trophies’ will be a mandatory inclusion on all PlayStation 3 games as of January. The site recieved confirmation of this from an SCEE representative, currently I cannot access the site and cannot provide the quote, which is dumb. I will update as soon as I can though.

This is a a good sign. Personally, I was getting a little sick and tired of wondering if companies would or wouldn’t be supporting trophies and it looks like, as of January, that’ll be a thing of the past. The sheer ammount of games that have added, or launched with, trophy support has been staggering. I think we can expect that most companies are putting them in at this point anyway, but it’s nice to see it being made mandatory. It looks like the ‘Trophy Patch’ is almost a thing of the past, come on Bethesda get working.

The PAIN Hollywood Studio expansion is bringing new trophies to the game. Well, we already knew that but what’s interesting is that in the new updated trophy list for the game is a new trophy called ‘Street Rider’. This trophy is awarded for using any Street Fighter character to travel two miles whilst grabbing onto a vehicle.

Street Fighter in PAIN, what’s next for Sony’s wave of cross promotion?

Slant 6 will be some of the first to admit that the launch of SOCOM: Confrontation was less than successfull. The game was marred with bugs, which left many unable to play the game a week after launch. Not good. Patch 1.20 fixed the majority of these problems and now the devs have announced that the 1.30 patch is on the way, and it’s bringing trophies. Hit the jump for details.
