Broken Achievements are giving me a Phantom Pain


Well today I finished MGSV 100%. You’d think that would be cause for celebration but no. Unfortunately not. Why? Well I didn’t get a Platinum trophy out of it…why further, you might ask?

I shouldn’t be surprised. This seems to be my life now. Who knows what next great disappointment will tear into me. Certainly doesn’t matter what I do, apparently.

It would appear that some things do get better. The achievements cropped up when I switched consoles. I don’t…know how or why…but I’ll take it.
