Funny. Shows how behind I am. Haven't been on any forums for a while, but this happened to me last night and I thought it was because I had shut down my system by accident while switching my controllers. Anyway, it kind of stinks but I gotta give you guys credit for the amount of time many of you have invested in trying to get this trophy. As long as I know its happening to others, I'm OK with it because I really just want to see how the story ends. I do agree however, that its ridiculous its been going on for a year and they haven't patched it. Especially since they're basically doube dipping on the GOW Collection. Oh well. Game on.
i have found that you do not have to use the workaround steps to get the
boss batch 3 trophy to unlock. there seemed to be some who attempted the
workaround and it still did not work for them. i was told that you just keep
on trying it until it does, but i think thats just crazy. i would say that
attempting my solution below will work 100% of the time. please try and see.
the way i did it was to ignore getting the urns in the game. just get
through the game without backtracking so you finish the game faster. i done
this twice because i completed the game in two different profiles i created
on my PS3. both times i did this the trophy did unlock after killing the 3rd
sister of fate. play it on easy difficulty so you can just plow through the
game. its my opinion that the urns are the cause, but thats only my opinion.
however there is a clue that gave me the idea on the making of GoW2 videos
that indicate some screw up with the bonus urns.
ok so am i understanding this correctly i have to play the game again and forget the urns? i cant just do an update or something. and secondly i cant view the boss 3 trophy glitch fix thread.
there is no update i am aware of. if there was they would probably make us
pay for it. yes i understand playing the game over again is a pain, but
thats only if this workaround guide is not working for you. you still have
to replay the big battles for the workaround and to me thats crazy enough if
it does not work. if you really want that trophy to unlock, these 2 options
are the only solutions i am aware of. i have searched a lot and did testing
of my own and this is it. i do not have any hope that there ever will be a
patch. but if you are aware of something i am not then please let me know.
Just tried your workaround, making it the 6th workaround I've tried. Nothing worked.
Please Santa Monica, patch this trophy glitch. I've played through this game 6 times and still haven't unlocked it.
i would like to know the details of your attempt on my suggested way to get the boss batch 3 trophy. i just got word from someone else that his attempts at my work around did not unlock the trophy untill he understood the exact way i attempted to explain it. seems like you maybe understanding something a little different or something? the trophy did finally unlock for that someone after he ask detailed question and tried again. i had to attempt finishing the game more than 6 times for me to figure out this way. i would not put any hope in there being a patch.
i just suggest playing the easy difficulty for anyone attempting this way. but just keep in mind my way is just about getting that trophy to unlock and nothing more. i suggest that anyone attempting my way not expect it to work with your other goals during game play. ingnore your need to get everything. just basics are needed to play easy difficulty and get to the 3rd sister as fast as you can. my assumtion is (and no facts to base this on) time maybe a factor as well.
remember you have to begin a new game without having or getting any urns. once you get that trophy unlocked the new game you started in easy difficulty can be saved over. if you have any questions please ask.
