Achieving: Platinum, finally

Can you believe it’s been nearly two and a half years since I posted about a dumb achievement? The proverbial itch has apparently been scratched. Over the last console generation I played most everything on Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 exclusives I did dive into weren’t usually the ones to get Platinum trophies. So here I am in 2015 all proud that I basically just played a ton of Rocket League.

You’ll hit most of the trophies in the game just by playing it for a while. The unlocks come at the end of almost every five-minute match. Blasting around after the ball you’ll inevitably hit one in while driving backwards as well as bump an opponent into the ball for a goal. Many of them you can unlock just by setting up bot matches. But the ones that took the longest were finally playing online with a friend (aww, how sad) and racking up 50km on a single set of decorative tires. It finally popped though, in the middle of an uneventful match, and now I have a Platinum trophy and Yay and whatever. Let’s go play some more Rocket League already!

KatyCraft: Express Your Rocket League Obsession in Real Life

081715-rocketshirt

This one is a co-craft between Katy and I featuring my current online, multiplayer, team-based, sports competition of choice: Rocket League. I know, none of those things are stuff I usually go in for but, man, this game is fun and hilarious. It doesn’t hurt that it was “free” with PlayStation Plus as well, otherwise I’d never have touched it. Anyways, here’s a university-styled shirt design we brainstormed. It’s more simple than my grander design (which is maybe still forthcoming) but I like it. You can get it in a variety of colors and styles but classic blue or orange would be my recommendation.

You guys, Katy makes a lot of awesome stuff. She’s on Red Bubble, Storenvy, Etsy, and Gumroad with stickers, cross stitches, shirt designs, jewelry and more. It’s not all video game related either, she’s got your fandoms covered!
