  3. :platinum: #90 Resident Evil 2

     

    There's two sides to every story,

     

    and that's definitely true for Resident Evil 2. Your first decision in the game will be to pick one of two characters. Either Leon S. Kennedy, a rookie cop that's late for his first day at work in Raccoon City Police Department, or Claire Redfield, a college student that is looking for her missing brother. After bumping into each other at a gas station they are both about to have the most horrific night in their lives. To make it worse they will get split-up right away and will have to face this nightmare separately. While there are some changes from the original game, the base idea remains the same. You have to play with both characters to experience the whole story.

     

    As soon as Leon and Claire get separated RE Engine kicks in showing off zombies in all the gore you would expect from them. There's a lot of good stuff when it comes to graphics. Some motion capture of facial expressions during cutscenes, faithfully recreated locations from the original and very good light effects. However, zombies are definitely my favorite and how they respond to actions. You can set them on fire, give them an acid bath, tear them apart limb by limb, or with precise headshots peel layers of skin and flesh off their faces until there's nothing left but the brain soup on the floor. All of that looks disturbingly good. On top of that, I didn't notice that frame rate is suffering (I'm playing on PS4 Pro) from any of that.

     

    Audio has the classic Resident Evil signature. Most noticeable are footsteps against different types of surface and squeaky sounds doors make when you use them. Gunfire sounds flat for the most part. The only time I really noticed a  big difference is when I was shooting enemies in the parking garage. Any other room in the police station didn't make much difference for gunfire. Overall, music was serviceable and it only stood out for me with end credits song and when music was trying to pump up action for a few extra modes that you unlock after completing the game. Voice acting for cutscenes and a few conversations that are done on the fly are well made, but besides that Leon and Claire hardly say anything. Occasional hint for a puzzle, some swearing during combat, sigh when they are injured and a handful of one-liners is all you will get during the gameplay. I wish they at least had something more to say while examining various items you pick up throughout the game.                            

     

    The gameplay was completely redone. Fixed camera angles from the original were replaced by a third-person perspective. There are some new mechanics, like using wooden boards to seal windows and using sub-weapons to get zombie off you before it does any damage. Inventory management and puzzle solving are still here, but don't expect to know how to solve every puzzle if you played the original. As far as I can remember the original, most items are in different places and puzzles are changed, or replaced completely. There's some RNG in the game. Thanks to that zombie movement can be pretty unpredictable and it affected my accuracy. While in the original I didn't mind that it took five bullets from the regular handgun to turn walking dead into just dead dead, in the remake on several occasions it felt annoying that a zombie would still go at me after five headshots. Leon and Claire have different sets of weapons. In my opinion, Claire got a better end of that deal, but both can hold their own. The first playthrough with both characters took me a little over 7 hours for each, but I practically checked every corner of every room and picked up every item there is. On top of that add few more hours for extra modes. One of these modes is from the original game and others are new alternative stories that never happened.

     

    Trophy list is very easy. It requires you to go through the game several times, but you can easily do a playthrough in around 2 hours. If you want more challenge than the trophy list has to offer you can try to get S+ rank. You have to finish the game on hardcore difficulty, within the time limit, 3 saves, or less and no use of special items. Reward you get is one of the two most powerful weapons in the game. Weapon you get depends on whether you got S+ with Leon, or Claire, but both of them can use it afterward. In case even that is not enough of Resident Evil 2 for you, you can connect your PSN account with RESIDENT EVIL.NET and try out some of the weekly challenges.

     

    I would recommend this game to both old and new fans of the Resident Evil games. If you ever decide to play Resident Evil 2 don't be sad if it's raining during your visit. After all,

     

    Raccoon City is the home of Umbrella.

      Congrats! I played this on my One X when it came out because I just couldn't wait any longer, but I'll get around to it again on PS4 omeday! Pretty much tied with RE4 as my favourite in the series

  4. [Control] Just defeated myself. That's always fun.

  5. Today
  6. #160 Platinum, #300 Ultra rare trophy and #30 ultra rare Platinum in Wolfenstein 2009. Great game, now just to finish Wolf 3D and ps3 part of the series is done. My next big milestone, #200 is gonna be #50 & #500 UR as well. If my math is right I'm just gonna have to get around 70 trophies from some other games.

  7. So far Darksiders Genesis feels like the good story version of Diablo 3 lol

    Lucky for me I always had a DH main back when it came out so Strife sure makes the game feel ezmode. Can't wait for my hardmode run 

  8. Yuri you absolute legend! Fastest achiever for Battlefront 2!! 😮

      What else you got hidden up ya sleeve I wonder? Hmm

  9. Started Just Cause 4 and just wanted to know if any kind soul is out there with it as well so i can befriend you and get a free trophy. ^^'

    1. BB-BakkerJ

      BB-BakkerJ

      You can send me a friend request. Good luck with the game. The main game is pretty fun but the ‘challenges’ are a boring grind and the last 2 DLCs are just awful. 

    2. Sun_emperor1

      Sun_emperor1

      cheers man, appreciating it. ^^

       

      and i have heard rumors that the DLC are not fun, will just have to grin and bear it i guess.

    3. BB-BakkerJ

      BB-BakkerJ

      I thought the first DLC was pretty good. Anyway, good luck. Should be easy to beat many of my scores.

  10. Platinum #34: God of War. Second platinum trophy for the PS4. On the second playthrough I managed to find all the ravens and the artifacts without any glitches. Great game.

      Congratulations on getting through with a somewhat glitchy game :D 

  11. [Control] Just met Dylan......What a nice reunion, yeah. 

  12. So I have been playing COD WW2 with Mrs Bee, and I have come to a sad realization.  I can only end up on the losing team so many times before I stop thinking I got unlucky and put with the weaker players, and start thinking that the problem may be with me lol.  Played roughly 20 games so far, have 1 recorded win ...

     

    I fear I am the problem.

  14. I asked for it!  

    Managed to complete The Evil Within on its infamous hardest difficulty, Akumu!  took me 16hrs and 346 deaths :facepalm: 

    This definitely turned out to be easier than I thought it would be, with the correct upgrades, some patience and luck as well as great understanding of the games makes this mode totally doable, more than a hundred of those deaths were just me stepping in traps like an idiot lol.

     

    What I noticed on Akumu that wasn't there on Survival difficulty: 

    -Obviously a one-hit death from anything except from barbed wired bear traps (for some weird reason )

    -Enemies are faster and have a wider sense of detection, making stealth harder. 

    -more enemies 

    -Abundance of traps and including bear traps in boss fights, The Sentinel and Laura (cuz let's make this harder than it already is)

    -Changed and early enemy placements, fake Ruvik  spawns from chapter 3, Ruvik is much faster on chapter 9, two fake Ruviks spawn in chapter 11,  there are two Traumas in chapter 14..etc

      @Masamune thank you, yep it definitely is and you gonna have to accept the fact that you're gonna die..a lot, not because you're bad but because the game can be so cheap and controls can get clunky.

    3. Masamune

      Masamune

      Yeah, I played through the story once & after that, I knew I wouldn't be up for any kind of 1 hit kill mode... so I stopped there. 😅 I still have it though, so maybe I'll give it another shot someday? Actually I wouldn't mind getting the second one too. :hmm:

    4. ahmedelebiary

      ahmedelebiary

      It is worth a try, one of the most satisfying and challenging modes out there.

      I will be getting the second one, many questions left unanswered I need to find out 😁

  15. [Berserk Band of the Hawk] Despite me not being a fan of Musou games, I have to say...I quite enjoy this one. Of course, the fact that Berserk is my favorite manga of all time also helps, but the game itself is not too bad either. Guts' hits really have an impact, Berserker armor is oddly satisfying to use, the maps aren't terribly long or stuffed and the story and cutscenes are pretty decent.

    The only place where the game severely lacks is the soundtrack department. I would have expected some epicness to the level of Millenium Falcon entry from PS2, the songs in this game are abit underwhelming imo. Fortunately I can always turn down the music and blast Youtube in the background.

     

    Will have to try Endless Eclipse however. Most people said it's kinda cheap especially when fighting Femto, I am curious what's that about. 

  16. I've seen different opinions on the whole #AllLivesMatter vs #BlackLivesMatter thing from protest supporters on twitter:

    1. The phrases should be interchangeable, BLM is just what people use.

    2. Saying ALM is not wrong but it's an asshole thing to do now.

    3. People who say ALM are racist.

     

    For me personally, ALM is fine. But there is a difference between ALM and BLM. ALM is about equality and BLM is about inequality. And I see why most people still prefer BLM - because it better reflects what is happening now in 2020. At least this is my interpretation. Saying ALM shouldn't make you an asshole BUT if reply with it to everyone saying BLM, you most likely are one. And if you truly think they're interchangeable, you woudn't have a problem with any of them.

     

    Just be better to each other. Otherwise this shit will never end.

      Believe it or not, there was a #RussianLivesMatter hashtag on russian twitter recently. That made me cringe so hard. I get it, we have our own problems, but come on.

    3. Nighcisama

      Nighcisama

      Every part of the world has its own problems, most people outside the US do not care all that much about that little conflict for obvious reasons, many people barely cared about Hong Kong, and what happened there in terms of police brutality was and still is 10x worse. Hell, even the USA themselves have much bigger problems at the moment with over 100k covid casualties and more to come, yet these idiots in the streets have nothing better to do than to further spread the disease while they loot and burn shops of innocent people. This is simply not the time for this kind of shit, even if it was executed properly.

  18. FuwafuwaNeko's Status Update Diary

    Entry #2 — Jun, 2 / 2020

     

    # Preparation progression

    So apparently, my mind has no trouble coming up with lots of event ideas. Trying to fit all those into one single event is a different story though… Like my teachers use to say: K-I-S-S., which stands for Keep-It-Simple-Stupid. With other words, having something simple and easily understandable is preferable to having lots and lots of ideas stacked together in some kind of unorthodox clusterfuxk. I know, removing ideas might hurt at first but I'd say it's vital in the process of creating something.

    —With that said let's take a look at the ideas that haven't been tossed out yet shall we ;).

     

    FuwafuwaNeko's Community Event Thingy: (not the real name , that is still a secret for now :ninja:)

    - Teams of 5

    • There is one "Team Leader"
    • Teams compete against other teams for points
    • The team with the most points at the end of the week gains a "Streak"

    - Points based on Trophy Values (:bronze: = 15pts, :silver: = 30pts, :gold: = 90pts, :platinum: = 180pts)

    • advantage: all trophies are awarded at the same level =>> simplicity of score counting
    • disadvantage: all trophies are awarded at the same level =>> there is no point difference between say an UR trophy or a trophy from an easy game like My Name is Mayo.
      • however; whether someone decides to go the EZPZ route is their own choice. I feel like you should be free to choose the trophy style you prefer. It's true that this point system has a bias against easier trophies but if you want an event where they balance the score then there are enough of those on the forums already =D
      • to encourage different play styles there will be a variety of badges available to earn (more about that further up).

    - Weekly Leaderboard

    • Teams scores will be published weekly after which the score will be reset.
    • "Streak", team that earned most points for the week will get a Streak. You should totally try with your team to get as many of those Streaks as possible!
    • Monthly summary of all Streaks, badges, and accumulated points for said month.

    - Badges for a variety of things (eg. rare trophies, stacks, vita games, etc…)

    • Personal badges, badges that you can earn for yourself; and Team badges, badges that can be earned as a team.
    • Rarity Badge, Boostmaster Flex, Online trophies, Stacks, 100% badge, badge for playing the most games from a particular platform etc etc. There are many possibilities here I want to explore (and if someone who's reading this got a few badge ideas of their own feel free to chime in biggrin.png).
    • Badges do not change the scoring in any way. This is important to note, while they can add for a nice addition they are completely on their own and do not influence the scoring system.

     

    Many of these choices were made to keep the event as accessible as possible, as this is still a work in progress things are subject to change but I'm really happy with what I have sorted out already^^. As for the date for the event, I plan on hosting the event during the second week of July. So make sure that date is all bookmarked in all your calendars tongue.png. Hopefully definitely see you then!

     

    ---

     

    > @Dreggit Oh my, OH MY. You spoil us with an update :D I'm very interested to see where this will go 

    We're going for a Diary Entry Streak? Should I tease you or not? Be sure to be ready giggle.png.

     

    > @ResoluteRock Hey, haven't seen you around in a while :) I'm sure I'll join in your community event so I'm excited to see what you come up with! 

    > Also, I thought I was following you but apparently I wasn't so here's another follower :P 

    Since the introduction of the Discord Server I pre-occupied my time primarily there. (I have even my own waifu-crippled-addicts server now :ninja:). Oh hooo, we already have one participant and I didn't even explained the details!?! You get VIP status in the event :awesome:. And hey, I do appreciate that I'm not completely forgotten yet (but will be more focusing on the event stuff then the diary stuff for now), gave you a follow back of course wink.png.

     

    > @Sword think community events are one of my favorite aspects of PSNP. It's amazing how fun something "unofficial" can really be. Just remember if you host something not to get overwhelmed, it's always for fun for you and the people doin' it. Look forward to seeing what this mystery turns out to be. :D

    Oh for sure! I completely agree with that, an event is amazing to meet new people and participate in the friendly trophy hunter spirit. I actually took a 3 year trophy hunting break and just bought a vita today so I could participate in events again :angel:. Now hoping that it arrives, first time using eBay and International shipping and such. Also the Interests section of your page pulled my, well, interest. Software and Website development? That sure does sound exciting, I also took the freedom to take a look at your Trophy Log. I was on the point of making something similar myself… eventually.

     

    > @Froopy the Temmie I really hope you use comic sans in the post for the event  :D 

    > I been thunking on joining a community event at some point, so marble I'll give it a try.

    Before the site update, there used to be a section in the forum editor where you could choose between a small selection of fonts. Those being: Arial, Arial Black, Comic Sans MS, Courier New,Georgia, Impact, Sans-serif, Serif, Times New Roman, Trebuchet MS, Verdana. With the update of the forums, the font selector disappeared but when pasting them into your text they are still being recognized =D. Oh you should definitely give the community events section a try. I understand as no other how difficult it might seem to get into, most events you see fleeting around already have established a large amount of members who are familiar with the rules, or the events have a giaaaaaaaant wall of text you need to read before signing up… It can be a hassle, but like @Sword already said, it can be amazingly fun. If you want to join an event approach one, and don't be afraid to ask if you can join, they won't bite! xD

     

    I was able to sort out most of my thoughts and provide a first draft of the event already. Progress!! And if you have anything to add, suggestions, hard criticism, badge artwork, whatever it might be I gladly listen to it. Let us make the most of it Zzz~

     

    Objectives:

    - Host a community event

    Guardians of the Galaxy :platinum:

    Fun 9/10

    Diff 2/10

     

    Really loved this one as I expected, I am not a Marvel fan by any means but I enjoyed the movie, still need to see the second one though. Characters and story were well made, voice acting was also decent, especially Rocket,  and I was surprised to know that Ashley Burch (Chloe and Aloy) voiced Nebula!  with the mixed comedy and emotional moments TT is known with..great game overall.

  20. Just annoyed by the 'glitched' trophies issue with Saints Row: The Third Remastered.

     

    I think I may take a break and wait for a patch. I would hate to play to 100% and get no trophy.

    Had to replay the game for 'Find 100% of all Collectibles.' Twice and now the 'Fully upgrade one Weapon in each slot.' trophy will not pop.

    I've saved right before getting the last one and I've kept retrying but to no avail. Reload, try again and still no trophy.

     

    I'm going to start LEGO Worlds and hope for a patch.

      You could try going of the game, close the app and restart the Ps4. Worked for me.

  21. FINALLY!  I GOT THE COWBEAR IN KATAMARI FOREVER!!!!

    1. MidnightDragon
    2. Alderriz

      Alderriz

      I've only played We Love Katamari, and I think there was a cowbear level, too. Is it like some kind of staple in the franchise? 😄

    3. Froopy the Temmie

      Froopy the Temmie

      @Alderriz I think so.  My roomie has Katamari Damacy from Steam and it also has the cowbear level.

       

      @MidnightDragon To get the collector trophy, this was most assuredly an item I needed.  Being that it only appears in a level that stops when you roll up anything vaguely cow or bear related and it's 7m 77cm 7mm and you start out at 1m 50cm, it becomes a real pain in the ass to get.  To roll up the cowbear, you need to get up to it's size, then dash the katamari to knock the cowbear out and roll it up, all without hitting anything else cow/bear related.

       

      There was a list @MMDE wrote in a Katamari Forever topic once that had three of the things they considered the hardest in KF and the cowbear was the last thing I needed on that list.  It's all downhill from there :)

  24. Platinum 66 God Eater 2: Rage Burst  1S49c7af.png

     

    Well, I said I would do it and I damn well did it. B) God Eater 1 2 and 3, I feel accomplished now.

    Thinking about going back and finishing Horizon Zero Dawn next, but idk.

  25. Nier Automata has officially overstayed its welcome.

     

    It was bad enough the game made me replay the first part twice (seriously what was the point of that besides a few story points) but now I missed out on some pod powers because I missed a quest somewhere in the first part of the game that triggers another quest that triggers another quest etc.

     

    I don't want to do chapter select just because this game loaded itself with a ton of missable shit.

     

    I unlocked 3 quests in Pascal's village in route 3...did the wrong one first and if you played the game you know what happens.

     

    The enemies are so repetitive, the quests are all repetitive, the fucking hacking game is awful, there is like 6 areas and you go back to them 2 dozen times each, the music is just so droning that I am now playing the game on mute (I liked all the songs the first time you hear them but after hearing them so many times I can't stand them anymore).

     

    I wasn't going to use the trophy shop but now I cannot be bothered to replay a bunch of chapters to earn that one ending or one pod upgrade or grind out a bunch of shit to power up weapons I will never use.

     

    I really wanted to like this game (loved Nier and ground out all items in that game) but there is just something about this really bland world that I just can't be bothered now.

    1. Copanele

      Copanele

      I believe when this game was made some charm was lost on the way. While the combat has been improved, the atmosphere itself is nothing compare to the first Nier. 

      I initially loved this game alot too, route A at least. Loved the carnival area. Route B... I couldn't stand 9S gameplay truth be told. But from route C onwards the only section I truly enjoyed was the parts with Emil. I ended up buying the pod trophy as well because screw farming in this game xD i would rather grind the stupid eagle eggs in the Aerie than go for metal type D or whatever they were requiring here. 

       

      And I think it's the fact that I played Nier which made me kinda guess the ending. I don't think you were supposed to play the first game from the dev perspective, else you would figure out stuff way too early (which is dumb if that's the case). That and... they are androids and robots. As much as I try, I can't get attached to artificial stuff xD compared to Nier/Weiss/Kaine/Emil gang which was simply awesome in dynamics. 

       

      Owell.. Can't wait for the Nier remake! Automata was good but not THAT good. 

    2. Dr_Mayus

      Dr_Mayus

      Yeah Nier wasnt perfect but i loved it enough that I was intrigued to play this game. 

       

      It is  just cause 2 vs just cause 3 situation again. Loved the former grew annoyed by the latter the more I played.

  26. Gravity Rush -- Do these Gravity controls ever start to feel normal? I'm playing the original version (Vita) and I'm just not connecting very well with the controls.

      PhyrxianLibrarin

      Yeah, they do, it takes a while but eventually your brain clicks into it. The trick is that Cat can't actually fly, so you aren't controlling her in the air; she's falling, and you're controlling which direction is _down_. Once you get that you'll be pulling off all kinds of insane tricks.

    3. Xylobe

      Xylobe

      Gyro aiming was key for me back when I played it. You should get the hang of it eventually-- except for the Gravity Slide, that mechanic was heinous on the Vita version imo

    4. Cleggworth

      Cleggworth

      Gravity slide is just ass, when I first played it I didn't bother with the challenges at all because of it. Fortunately it's one of those things you just get the more you do it. I considered myself distinctly average at the game and there was only a couple of challenges that required more than 2-3 tries. Fun game once you get the hang of it!
