  1. Should consider getting 428: Shibuya Scramble, then. Was another from them released just before 999, and damn is it good.
  2. @PooPooBlast @JaM BOYS! It is time: https://store.playstation.com/en-us/product/UP4774-CUSA12263_00-428SHIBUYASCRAUS

     

    Probably getting RE0, myself. Some pricier stuff I'm on the fence about, and will probably end up passing on. Days Gone feels like it's taking forever. And, uhh, guess that's it. :P

      I mean.. it doesn't help that my backlog is literally 5 games at this point xD. It's easy to get a majority :P

       

      True true! I'm going to check out the sale as soon as it goes live and I'll make up my mind in terms of what I need to buy. I'll definitely consider Shibuya scramble. That's pretty cheap!

      Yeah, I don't know what the price is in Canadian dollars, but it's the same low price it's been the last few times it's gone on sale. Really a steal at 80% off.

      It's $13.40 which is pretty much the same thing with conversation rates 

      I have a bunch more games I'm semi interested in.  Gonna have a session where I sit down and think about what I will get

  3. One last romp with the well endowed ladies of Senran Kagura. Platinum #485- Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal.

    PS-Messages-20200916-153427.jpg

    This list is very disingenuous. Lol. If they didn't force you to play as characters during story missions, it would be a lot different. But I wasn't going to replay a ton of missions to change it. At least I got the best girl where she belongs. ;)

     

    Waiting over an hour, now, for Days Gone to download its ridiculously large patch. :/ Fun times.. But getting back on track with my goal of finishing the games I bought on Black Friday, after getting waaaaay off track. 😅 Kiwami 2 and Senran were two of those.

     

    After Days Gone, I'll just have RDR2 and Indivisible left. But the latter... eh. Adding DLC with unobtainables to a game I haven't heard great things about, isn't going to get me to play it. And I've got so much in the backlog, that it's going to get delayed indefinitely. 

     

    But yeah, Days Gone. And then RDR2. Though back-to-back open world games doesn't sound like a good idea, so I'll probably play something in between.

      Congrats on getting the Platinum on Burst Re:Newal, my favorite SK title so far. :)

       

      But, all that Hikage fanboism is certainly showing off. And no way, you left my favorite girls in 6th, 7th, and 8th place. Blasphemy! :P At least, you have Asuka in 2nd place, so we're all good in that front. ;)

       

      Good luck with your upcoming games.

      Haha, thanks. :) Those two are definitely my favorites from those two schools, so I ended up using them when given the option for the two leveling trophies. The rest of the list was basically who had more story missions. 😅 Kind of a shame I couldn't play more balanced, really. I had all the DLC and wouldn't have minded getting Ryobi, Ryona, and Shiki up there.

      Well done! 💯 

  4. #485- Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal Path of the Shinobi Obtained all trophies. Not much to say about this one. Played one Senran Kagura game, you've played them all. Unless it's one of the spinoffs. Don't know what makes this one so much better than the two on the Vita to some people, but it's fun enough. Peach Beach Splash remains my favorite in the series, though. The musou format gets super repetitive. Platinum image:
  5. It's time for the Prinny Destruction Force to assemble once again.. Our new goal: the destruction of NekoRave for stealing @zajac9999's unique badge.
  6. ...Let's burn it down, anyway! Can't let all these supplies go to waste.
  7. This is what happens when you come in third. Name change when? Time to march on Neko's house with torches and pitchforks!
  8. I really need a Yakuza milestone, at some point... Platinum #484- Yakuza Kiwami 2.

     

  9. #484- Yakuza Kiwami 2 YAKUZA KIWAMI 2 Obtained all trophies. Back in the land of yakuza and crazy hijinks. Kiryu, having retired and living a peaceful life with his adoptive daughter, gets pulled back in after his former family's leader gets murdered right in front of him. And at a cemetery, no less. The story is fantastic, and I don't want to spoil it. But it's a huge step up from Kiwami, though doesn't quite outdo 0's. If you've played it, feel free to open the spoiler. Gameplay is roughly the same. Though everything is more open. Less load screens, as you can just run in and out of many buildings without seeing them. The ability to save anywhere, instead of running for the nearest phone booth and running into Clark Kent. And now there are cars driving around. I'd just assumed they didn't drive on these roads, because there were always people walking on them. Lol. The leveling system is new and different. Fighting, eating at restuarants, and completing stuff gives you points to spend on upgrades. And you have a hunger meter, where once full stats won't increase from eating. It also factors in to a bizarre minigame.. So, let's talk about that minigame first. You go and play them in a restroom, and I guess they're in Kiryu's head? He stands at a urinal, seemingly alone.. And you either play one, which looks like two guys trying to shoot the most milk out of their nose? Or another where you're trying to blow up a girl's skirt. Yeah.. I don't even know, man. Just roll with it. This is Yakuza. Other minigames include batting cages, darts, golf, karaoke, ufo catcher, a couple of fighting games (Virtua Fighter 2 and Virtual-On), mahjong, shogi, and the usual gambling games. Not much new or exciting, though they did change the karaoke format which took some getting used to. And then there's the Gravure Studio game.. This is the "don't play in public" minigame, not that the one in the bathroom is probably any better. Lol. But this has real life women, so it's a bit more... weird. You have to form coherent sentences from a list of dialogue options, and fill up their heart meter before it ends. If you can focus with the amount of cleavage on display, that is. Then you also have the return of Cabaret Club from 0, but Kiryu is running it this time. Still a chill game, and a good way to make money. Complete with the return of the Obatarian, who defies the laws of aging. And there's Majima Construction, which has you playing a strategy game where you order troops around a small battlefield. Pretty fun and easy with the methods listed in CyricZ's faq. Nothing is really that hard, to be honest. This is easily the easiest Yakuza game I've played. Bouncer missions were supposedly hard, but even those were no problem for me with the faq's methods. That said, it's not without its share of annoying things. Mahjong was a nightmare this time, requiring winning games on multiple difficulties. A.I. has the best luck, or are a bunch of cheating pricks. Haruka's requests had me wanting to throw her in the river again. Virtual-On and poker being the main ones that annoyed me. Virtual-On is just a pain in the ass. Poker, I don't know. Had the worst luck, I guess? Would get close to a thousand chips, lose a few hands, and took me over an hour. :/ The guide says 50-60 hours, which seems a bit low to me. I'd say I was closer to 70, if not over it with save scumming and time in menus (clock stops there). But it was mostly time well spent, so I don't mind. Now I need to get the trilogy, so I can continue the amazing journey~ Platinum image: Kiryu-chan! Couldn't resist having Majima in here again.
  10. Should have bought it, anyway. Tomb Raider 2013 is outstanding, and the Definitive version is gorgeous. Most of the online can be done solo, too. I just streamed a show, while carrying health packs back and forth. I even stacked it, that's how good the campaign is. Missing out.
  11. I'm sure it'll get buried in the status section, so I'll leave a link to my eulogy here: https://forum.psnprofiles.com/profile/104001-damagingrob/?status=211106&type=status *Runs away*
  12. Well, this was a wild month, to say the least. 16 Plats, half of them Ultra Rare, doubling my previous best of 4 earlier this year when I played all those Maddens. Over a hundred UR trophies, something I doubt I've even come close to before in a month. And will likely finish in the Top 3 teams for the competition, without any of us destroying our average rarities with Rata games. Lol. 

     

    All of those UR games weren't exactly easy, though.. I may have burned myself out a bit, going for so many in a row, and staying up past 5 A.M. to finish LBP3. 😅 But I'll probably be back in action soon enough. Either playing Kiwami 2 or some Fall Guys. The latter actually slowed me down some this month, since some days I'd just play that all day. :/

     

    You can read my thoughts on the last 5 Plats I obtained here:

    Been focused on keeping my team in second place, so that's why I'm posting about them all now. Was a fun event, but not sure if something I'd do again anytime soon. 😂 Takes a lot of time and effort to do well, and there are only so many UR games someone can blast through quickly. 

     

    But it was an experience. And we really put a good team together, despite it looking like we might not do much more than beat Prinny's team at first. :P Zajac was really responsible for that, imo. His desire to give it his all rubbed off on the rest of us, and his vast knowledge of UR games/willingness to help his teammates get their stuff done was something else. Really couldn't ask for a better teammate. 

     

    Anyways, yeah, time to wrap this up. Thanks to everyone who participated in the Summer Tag Team 2020 event, my teammates, and the people that hosted the event. Had a good time. :)

      :lol: I haven't actually been naked in Fall Guys for awhile now. Seemed like it was actually having the opposite effect, and people kept grabbing my ass. The unfortunate side effect of being so attractive, I guess...

  13. #479- Alchemic Jousts Perfection Get all the Trophies! Alchemic Jousts was an interesting one. You control elements like fire, water, earth, etc. and send them across the screen to attack your opponent's base. And the A.I. will try to counter with their own, each having strengths and weaknesses to different elements. It's not that hard, either, thanks to the Rest Mode trick. Though it did take me a little while to find a good strategy for the elite attacks. Once I did, though, it was easy enough to rattle off the ten wins. There are some trophy glitches, that can really set you back. So you definitely need to back your save up often, or risk replaying the entire campaign. And that's about it. Not a bad game, and kinda surprising so few have finished it. #480- Code Realize: Wintertide Miracles Wintertide Miracles Obtain all trophies I got nothing. Honestly, not even sure why I bought it. The first Code: Realize didn't do a whole lot for me, and I preferred Amnesia (unpopular opinion, but whatever ). It's off the backlog, at least. If I'm ever really bored and it's closer to the holiday season, maybe I'll give it a proper read. #481- Pox Nora One With Nora Obtain All Trophies This game is free to play, and a really easy Plat. But a technical mess on the PS4, and super dull.. Encountered numerous minor issues while boosting it, and it crashed on me seven times. :/ Some of them were humorous, though, and I had good company through it all. You do start to lose points for losses eventually, so most self boost. And what it is, is a card game. One where you summon monsters on to the field, and then move them around a small map. With your end goal being to destroy your opponent's tower. #482- Override: Mech City Brawl Pierced The Heavens Collect all trophies This was super easy and short. Not sure why it's Ultra Rare.. Turbo versus matches to unlock stuff, run through Arcade mode 1.5 times, and then boost the online. Quick, easy, and fairly painless. Game isn't anything special, but who doesn't want to fight with giant robots? I hear chicks dig them. #483- LittleBigPlanet 3 100% Complete Earn all LittleBigPlanet™3 trophies to unlock this platinum trophy My second LBP game, but the first one I platinumed. Didn't think it was too bad, at first. Pretty fun, not overly difficult, and some stellar music. But that eventually changed... For starters, you have to play the entire game in co-op. Well, technically just the final checkpoints of each level. But it's still rather annoying, having to log in a second controller so many times. And it made the final level such a bitch to beat the first time. But I guess it helped make acing it easier, since I'd had so much practice just trying to beat it before. And speaking of acing, I fricking hate it. Not dying in all those levels is such a pain in the ass. Sometimes, dying wasn't even my fault. The dumb bird would glitch into an object here and there, and I'd be as good as dead. It straight up looked like I just fell through the floor once as Batsack (Batman + Sackboy ), too. At least none of the trophies glitched.. The second to last level was easily the worst for me, taking an hour to ace. I really thought it would be the final level that would give me the most trouble, but even that one took less time and attempts. And then there were the co-op levels... Two of these were a nightmare to pull off by myself, and I highly advise against doing so. For the 4 player one, I had to juggle 3 controllers and a Vita, and had to beat the clock. There was a lot of rage with this, and the dumb 2 player level that would have been so much easier with a partner. So yeah, decent game, but with a humongous difficulty spike in the finale. And quite a big pain to Plat, especially solo.. ~~~~~ And lastly, I want to give shout outs to my boosting partners for Alchemic Jousts, Pox Nora, and Override. The man, the myth, the legend, @zajac9999, who was present for every one of their Platinum poppings. And @Brawler, for boosting a good chunk of Pox Nora with me. Also, @Wdjat Prinny Doods, for recommending Override. He's such a nice guy. Platinum images:
  14. Lol. I could have told you guys it was shit. And I paid more for it, buying a physical copy before that PSN sale happened..
  15. Conquering the galaxy with overlords made of glass... Platinum #478- Space Overlords.

    tenor.gif?itemid=5015289

    Had the bright idea to stay up till almost 5 A.M. shooting for a fast Plat time.. Not fast enough for first, though, and probably not worth it. But I did get to watch the new Bad Boys movie during the grind. That was fun.
