Director. Though I enjoyed the feeling the sound of the title gave me, I, much like Jesse, didn't fill it was totally earned. After all, according to my Trophy list, I had only completed about 88% of the game up until this point and haven't even touched the Foundation DLC.
Though frustration was somewhere present within me, it was more confusion that took ahold. What was keeping me from the coveted Platinum I so desired? I checked the list and it told me that I hadn't spent 100 Ability Points yet.
By this point, Jesse was a demi-god in my eyes, and ruled over the entire Bureau that she rightfully surveyed. All missions were completed and there were less than a handful of Board Countermeasures left. Okay, if this is the way to get more Points then I'm sure these could be completed in no time.
But, I will soon learn time was indeed the greatest enemy I've yet to face.
Thanks to the dedicated hours I've spent grinding, I was now able to traverse the hallways of the Bureau in speeds once only imagined just a couple of weeks ago. Yet, even as I dispatched enemy wave after enemy wave, I could not complete the simple objectives these Countermeasures asked of me. It didn't help that the rewards I would receive upon completion will do virtually nothing to enhance Jesse's already heightened power.
I was moving a lot but no progress was being made. How can i circumvent this inescapable loop? It was as if I, myself, was trapped by an Object of Power. Could it be my couch? I mean it was brand new and therefore foreign to me. I had to get ahold of myself and I needed a plan.
After 6 more hours of aimless flailing, I finally decided to complete a random Bureau Alert that popped up for the 20th time. Personnel Protection. Ah, let's get it over with.
Another Board Countermeasure completed. How? I went room to room looking for these Hiss Snipers and could not find one, but now they show up when I least expect them? Was that the key to achieving this trophy? To let them come to me?
Minutes pass. Another Bureau Alert.
Dammit! No Hiss Snipers this time! No worries.
Another Bureau Alert. Another without Snipers.
It seems 88% would be my limit. I've come to realize I am caught in my own inescapable Astral Plane with no hope of getting out. The Hiss had won. They had true Control.
