PSN ID: KGI_KlikoNL
My nickname is Kliko, and in real life most of my friends call me Kliko too. My main hobby is gambling, but I also like: history, travel and watching most sports. I have PDD-NOS / Aspies / ADD. I did a year of Web / Game Design. I traded in October 2019 from Xbox to Playstation.
How did you start playing and hunting for trophies?
As far back as I can remember we have had a console at home. Starting with the original Nintendo. My mom took it from my dad for me when my parents divorced when I was 4 years old. I’ve been looking for achievements since I connected my Xbox 360 to the internet the day I bought it, to update Skate with the release day patch.
What consoles do you mainly play on at the moment?
Give us a taste of your favorite games!
Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time, the Fallout series, Forza Horizon (the only game I’ve missed since my time with Xbox).
What is your favorite genre?
Racing, Sports, and then any genre that includes GTA, Watch_Dogs, Assassin’s Creed, Fallout, The Elder Scrolls Online.
Where are you in the world and what is the gaming climate like there?
I’m from the Netherlands and since the Xbox One sudden delays here in 2013 it’s moved to a Playstation country. There is a large community of gamers, especially with the PC LAN parties. In 2014, we did not do badly as a country in the TA Regional Winter Olympics.
Do you have any controversial game-related shots?
- In 2016, EA said FUT was a game, but now – in court – it says it isn’t. Then EA released FIFA 22 anyway and won’t change the way the packs work until later.
- The story of Fallout can still happen in real life.
Do you have a love for a game that is not well regarded by others?
Probably a sports game like Tennis or Golf. I find them too boring to watch. But, I like to play every now and then, just a few console games.
What upcoming game are you most passionate about?
Republic of the Cavaliers. There are just about every extreme sports that I love. I have done mountain biking downhill myself, often when I was in South Tyrol. If skiing is going well, snowboarding not so much …
The Trophy Case
What is the most difficult trophy you have won?
Back on Xbox, in my opinion, I had the most difficult achievement of my time with games: “The Bladder of Steel Award” in Rock Band 2. Six hours of play, without pausing or skipping the game a song.
What’s the longest time it took you to win a trophy?
I guess this will be the one that was broken and where we all had to wait for it to be fixed. Like, “Seasoned to Perfection” in FIFA 21.
What’s the nastiest way you got around the hard work to win a trophy?
I’m a clean player who doesn’t like to use exploits. But, I guess, it becomes “Field Medic” in Fallout 76. Another TT member, YinNYK, and I did the revives by crashing into each other.
What’s the simplest full list for the best game?
Theme park simulator. You just need to start each trip and sit on it for 5 minutes.
Which trophy bothers you the most?
“Out of Your Depth” in Grand Theft Auto V. It’s never fun to be eaten by a shark.
What trophy are you embarrassed about not to get?
“Geologist” in NBA 2K20. But, it is because of our strange law on gambling. Take-Two direct locked transfer market for Dutch players. EA is still fighting this law with FIFA. It’s not about how much money you can spend on the lootbox, but what you can do with the “surprise items” after opening the lootbox. You can’t redeem them (even in-game), hence the start of Preview Packs in FIFA UT. It removes the element of surprise (the game part).
Which lists have you given up?
Project Cars 3, Watch_Dogs 2, Battle Islands: Commanders, Driveclub and GRID.
Best non-trophy game achievement?
Maybe help others get trophies, even though I already have them. Otherwise my Dutch team rated 90+ in FIFA 21 UT which I created without buying FIFA points with real money.
When you go through a list of trophies for the first time, what are you looking for?
New games, I watch them just to know what to expect. For games that have already been released, I look to see if there are any dropped, bugged, or broken trophies.
How to build a list?
I have exactly the same take as Slayer from the first TT community interview: “In a way that encourages the player to try out the different modes and ways to experience what the game has to offer, without prompting a unnatural play or grinds that go beyond their welcome. . “
Thanks to the TT community?
The staff who make this site possible. You, Kes, for doing this and all the general news here on TT. All the members, who keep the discussions going here. And, finally, all my friends here on TT.
