  1. So Va-11-Hall-A (https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/6930-va-11-hall-a) for the Vita will be my game when I am on vacation starting this Thursday. Such a shame that Doki Doki Literature Club is not available for the Vita. But oh well...

  2. Wouldn't mind any trophies, since I like this game a lot. But it seems that there aren't any anyway
  3. I am all for this but it will be nearly possible to implement it due to some aformentioned reasons.
  4. That was tough to watch!
  5. The English fans already behave ... English.
  6. Looks like I need to install The Witcher 3 again.

      Need to see those sweet DLC things...

      Exactly!

  7. The problem many are having is not necessarily the dive and that England won. They were better no doubt but what everybody hates with every cell of their body is the fans and how they represent that team which is not condemning any behavior by the way. Booing every single action including anthems of other nations, acting like wild animals, using a fucking laser pointer, making fun of a child and calling it a bitch etc. These fans are a disgrace to football and this is why everyone wants Italy to win, so they finally shut up.
  8. They are brutal but not as hard as the single races. The AI is a little toned down when doing tournaments. So on Phantom it is not necessarily the tournament which will break you but Chenghou Project as a single race
  9. Football's diving home!
  10. #133 + 100% Assassin's Creed: Black Flag Prizes, Plunder, and Adventure! It is actually not that easy to assess Assassin's Creed Black Flag. In general I had a really good time with it but there were also many aspects which made the game so frustrating and annoying. Let’s start with the good: The initial presentation of the game is fantastic! It starts with the great menu, the menu sounds and the music. Furthermore, the Caribbean atmosphere was amazing right off the start. Ubisoft does everything to fully convince the player that he/she actually takes part of this journey by showing you the greatest landscapes, your first whale in the ocean (yay) and giving you control over a ship pretty early on. Players will spend most of the time on the Jackdaw (the name of your ship) and that is the heart of AC Black Flag. Capturing other ships and upgrading the Jackdaw is just a blast. This process alone combined with exploring dozens of islands (and their villages) make Black Flag a phenomenal game and that is probably a stand out point for this entry of that franchise. Man, this game put me such in a good mood when I did all of the aforementioned things. BUT it also made me really mad when progressing through the story! Because then it is revealed how broken the controls are and how crappy that mission design is. Many, many times you can’t complete some objectives because Kenway jumps over things where he supposed to climb or climbs where he is supposed to jump. This gets so annoying when you also have to navigate him through narrow environments. In these moments it seems like that the whole game just gives up and pressing buttons always has the opposite effect of what you actually wanted to do. On top of that the game is totally inconsistent with its own mechanics. There are plenty of situations where things are implemented which were never a thing before. As an example I wanna point out the last mission of the DLC. There you have to counter an enemy to steal his weapon. To do so you can only attack him with your bare fists. So far so good. Pretty much right at the beginning that enemy is fleeing but he is doing that right towards you. So, when you think “hey let me punch him right here, so the battle with him also takes place in that location and he stops fleeing” you kill him with a single button press! Never before a single punch (which is not even animated) killed an enemy. So what happened there? Why was that mission and that collision detection programmed that way and why was it like that after 50 hours of play time for the first time? In one my last status updates I raised the question on how AC reached that status of being such a beloved franchise if the controls are that broken (heck part 3 was even worse and it ruined the whole game for me). I think I know the answer to this now. The “average” player will never encounter these problems, cause you can complete all missions by just running through the game most of the time. Only going for the 100% will shine light on these flaws. So, the majority of players is probably unaware of all of these issues. Not aiming for the 100% makes AC a super easy and laid back game with different settings many probably enjoy. So in general I would highly recommend Black Flag when not going for the platinum and only recommend it for others with these aspects in mind focusing on the great stuff the game has to offer. And there are plenty of it.

      You forgot to talk about the online. Completely tacked on and unnecessary. 
       

      When it comes to bullshit optional sync requirements, Assassin’s Creed 3 is still at the top of the pile of trash. 
       

      If you’re feeling doubtful, don’t even touch Origins and Odyssey. You will be burnt out, trust me on that one. 
       

      Great job on the platinum. Black Flag is old enough now to where I feel a sense of nostalgia out of it.

      @AJ_Radioyeah the multiplayer was unnecessary but I was prepared for endless grinding and such so it wasn't that bad. Plus I found great people to do it with.

  12. You need help getting platinums in these games?😁
  13. So, I am done with Black Flag and started the DLC now. I will write some sort of review later. In general the good things outweigh the negative stuff. Liked the game.

  14. Hope that doesn't mean more trophies for the main game. Wouldn't want to touch that again.
  15. Great news for the people who liked the game. Nothing for me though 😁
