Guacamelee! 2 – Platinum Get!

Posted in Best / Worst, Blog, Games, High Scores/Accomplishments on October 27, 2018 by slateman

I realize I said that I gave up. Those damn chicken illuminati challenges just annoyed me. Well, the first one most of all. But it kept tugging at me to return – I knew I could do it!!!

And so after a few weeks, knowing that Red Dead Redemption 2 would consume me at the end of October, I went back. And I beat those damn challenges. And I’ll never do them again!!!

So it was just hard mode that sat between me and the platinum. The first Guacamelee! was more difficult than the second and I platinumed that. So this one should be easy, right? Not at all. Some of those small battles were insanely difficult with a narrow margin of error. Get hit twice in a frenzied room of a dozen foes flailing about chaotically? Restart. Miss one button press? Restart. But facing the final boss for the third time (twice to get both of the endings + hard mode) was still incredibly easy. Each of the three times I defeated him on the first try, refreshing after getting brutalized over the 10-hour replay session.

Platinum achieved, but I don’t think I’ll ever return to Guacamelee! 2. It looked great, played great and the music was fantastic. However I think the first game is superior. For now, I’m done, at least until Guac! 3. Below is one of the harder challenges, just to open up the chicken illuminati ones. *sigh*.
