Detective Gallo ~ Trophy Walkthrough


Game-spanning notes:

 

- The game must be played in a single sitting WITHOUT pausing/making saves!!! (Sprinter) Meaning you must avoid the options/start button, as well as avoiding Gallo's notebook on the left side of his inventory bar. Be careful!

 

- Don't use the hotspot button (R2) or you will void Old School. Gallo will do it himself once in the Garden Mansion at the beginning of the game; that's fine. But after that, avoid the R2 button.

 

- The interface is not really explained – whenever you hover over an item, there will be pictures to the left and right of the item name. The left picture (generally “use” or “pick up”) is done by pressing X. The right picture (almost always “look at” or cancel action) is done by pressing Circle.

 

- If you have to play through again, ignore the underlined text as it is unnecessary to complete the game.

 

- No idea what the time limit for Timed Trial is. You can skip dialogue (X) though. This walkthrough gets you the platinum in about 2 hours, which is fast enough for the trophy.

 

- This is one of those games where you can't do something unless your character already knows you need to do it. As such, there's a lot of back and forth.

This is a timed puzzle. The bartender will pour three rounds of drinks and will be distracted by the TV between each round. That's your time to move and swap the glasses around (just click on them). You need to do this flawlessly on the first try for this trophy. Making a backup save will void Sprinter, so if you mess this up, you'll have to start a new game and play through until this point.
