  1. What are you even talking about? "In effect" means that something is continuously going on. For instance, "social distancing measures are in effect until the governor ends them." Affect is the verb, effect is the noun. Companies like Square Enix are affected by the fact that vote-by-wallet is in effect, which may lead to a lasting effect.
  2. Meanwhile the Kingdom Hearts Rhythm song just above this game got a Platinum. WTF Squenix?
  3. He's literally just being a troll. Here is a quote from his post on August 2nd: "ehh tbh most of us on this website like a game with a Platinum. It's the best feeling knowing you accomplished all trophies for that beautiful platinum to unlock. Hard pass for me." Edit: He also has over 200 platinum trophies, lmao
  4. I did beat him on the second try. Do you have a link to that video? It's not possible that I wasn't at full health because I have the recovery coins. Maybe it's different on the PC version?
  5. I just beat Nemesis on Inferno with 4 coins (I had already done all my runs except for Hardcore so this DLC just let me skip some grinding and a pointless playthrough with the RL), and I don't think you are correct about the coins multiplying. I was able to survive one combo, which brought me to caution, but if he combo'd me again I died while stunlocked. Maybe it gives you one extra hit? But you certainly cannot take nine hits. Either way this does radically speed up the plat: 1) Minimalist run on assisted and collectibles without healing 2) Buy extra coins and STARS manual 3) Speed Run Inferno with RL
  6. I didn't get into the Uncharted series, so unfortunately I don't get the reference there. I feel like this is what I was saying, though? They're trying to make a quick buck by offering the trophies again. My original post was saying that I think it would be more reasonable to do that once a console generation, so they can at least offer better performance. I agree that some people may want one game and not the other, but that's why they should be launched solo first, and then offered as a price discount if you want both. Separating them now is odd at best, and greedy at worst.
  7. I mean considering the collection has been as cheap as $14 on Amazon is that even true? Who is out there saying that they would buy only Bioshock but not Bioshock 2? That doesn't make much sense. Why would they make different trophy lists, too?
  8. I'm torn on this. I love having a "reason" to go back and play a great game. I'll still replay my favorites even if I've plat'd them, but for a lot of games I feel like it's "a waste" when there are games I've never earned the trophies for (this may be the biggest drawback to trophy hunting). On the other hand, I don't want gaming companies to become cynical about just releasing a game again in the same console generation because we will potentially buy it. I kind of feel like a good trade off is bringing games forward once per console generation. That seems like a good way to update our favorites, without being overly greedy. So if Bioshock Remastered launched in 2016, the PS5 version launches in 2021...we can get another playthrough with trophies every 5 years or so.
  9. Congrats on your newborn!! Thanks for still running this even with your crazy schedule. I earned the FF7:R platinum last week, so I'm still at 14/14 for Kupo Lover. I don't think I'll ever get the highest rank because I'll never get through all the Mana games or Monster of the Deep.
  10. Naughty Dog pays Neil Druckman's wages. If Naughty Dog is happy with his performance (seems they are), he will continue to be employed. Again, no one owes you anything. For all the talk about the alt-left being snowflakes, the alt-right are the most entitled babies on the planet. "I can't believe this game doesn't fit my wants and needs. What about me? I paid $60 for the last game, so now I should have a seat at the developers' table!" Grow up. Vote with your wallet, skip the game, and leave everyone else in peace.
  11. The irony is that they are making their own games. None of this is "yours." The only thing that made it "yours" was the fact that you paid for it, so your only option is to not buy it. You just can't handle that LGBT characters are mainstream now, so you lose out. Maybe if you tried being open-minded and not hateful, you'd be able to enjoy more things. Or you can sit there and stew over the possibility of a gay Doom Marine while the rest of us have fun. Seems like a sad existence to me, though.
  12. This comment is pretty gross. I think the story is stupid, but not because one of the characters (or the devs) is trans.
  13. I dunno about that. Lots of people are saying they are cancelling. This was going to be a day one purchase for me because the original story was so good, but I'm not impressed with what I've heard. I don't know that reviewers will be forgiving just because they skew left...I skew left politically and I think it sounds like a generic "revenge doesn't make anyone happy" story. People on the left want equality in representation, not contrived nonsense to make a statement. I think the fallout may be bigger than you think. Will it be a flop? Probably not...but it won't be as big as ND is expecting.
  14. I agree with you. I would call this a sequel more than a remake, because it implies the original timeline already happened, and now Sephiroth is trying to change it while the ghosts are trying to keep it on track. New players would be entirely lost without looking up the lore of the original game.
  15. Hey OP, just wanted to say thanks for writing this. I grew up playing Doom, but somehow missed this when it came out. After reading your review, I picked it up and had a great time. Finished the campaign yesterday, now going back to clean up collectibles.
