  1. You're right,. OK everyone, from now on until we colonize Mars or World War 3 starts no more posting any threads on this gaming website. We need to save the space for big news only. Also did you read what I wrote? RARE was with Nintendo since the NES until the N64 exclusively...until Microsoft bought them. Insomniac has already made games for other systems so it isn't a stretch that Microsoft could buy them up. I am just really confused why you are choosing this hill to die on when there are dozens of stupid threads opened every week.
  2. RARE made 100% exclusive games for Nintendo until Microsoft bought them up...so just because you have a good partnership doesn't mean that lasts forever. Insomniac lost the rights to Spyro and Activision made a fortune off of that brand. Insomniac made Song of the Deep and Fuse multiplatform. They made Sunset Overdrive, Edge of Nowhere and other games exclusive for other platformers (not Sony). So if RARE can be bought away from Nintendo what makes you think Insomniac couldn't as well?
  3. Like a lot of you I am hoping for a Sunset Overdrive release. Maybe if they do SO2 they will release the first one as a tie-in or something. I am OK with Resistance being over. The story has been told and I would like to see new things coming out. Honestly I wished this happened earlier because if Sony owned Insomniac we wouldn't have had EA mess with Fuse and go from "super fun characters" to "super serious characters" Don't get me wrong I still liked Fuse but from the original concept to the released product it was vastly different.
  4. Alpha Plat Rain - Prince of Persia: the Sands of Time I never played this game back on the PS2 and was excited to play it on the PS3...until my save got corrupted and I said "fuck it". Now that I am trying to plat the Alphabet in 1 day I needed a P and thought "what the hell I will finish Sands of Time" and I am glad i did (and not just because it is all gold and silver trophies ) The combat is a bit shit (which is the one major complaint most people have about this game) but the running/climbing/jumping is all a lot of fun and the game has a great mechanic that if you fail you can rewind and try again. Unfortunately Ubisoft being Ubisoft thought "that mechanic makes too much sense in our game of trial and error...make a trophy limiting the player to only 20 attempts...but it is such a fun mechanic we should also make a trophy for using it 200 times." So if you take away the moronic logic of Ubisoft this was a blast to play. One last point the characters were a lot of fun and it is nice playing a game where people don't take themselves so seriously all the time...I know about the sequels though. Alpha Plat Rain -Claire Have had this in my PS Plus games for a long time but never got around to playing it. I figured it would make a good C game for my Alpha Plat Rain so I finally beat it (well almost). Thanks to the great walkthrough on the site this made beating it a breeze. Playing it though this game wasn't as good as Lone Survivor as it was more of a RUN game as oppose to an explore game. I beat Lone Survivor without a guide (need a guide for the plat though) but Claire would have been a chore without a guide as the levels all looked the same and it was just not as interesting as LS. Regardless an easy plat with some cool visuals so a thumbs up from me

    I was really hoping I could save after beating the Boogeyman but alas I can't go back so I will have to rebeat him on Plat Rain day :)

     

    Big thank you to @optimusmart and @Optinooby for your excellent guide. I was able to beat it on Nightmare with no difficulty.

      I was the same way. I got it from Plus but just left it alone. Then when the Alpha Plat Rain started I booted it up and was like "I don't want to follow a guide right now" and just left it at 0% for a long time.

       

      Finally yesterday I was like "well now or never" and using the walkthrough (not the Trophy Guide) it made it a simple and easy platinum. I died like once the whole game (because I didn't heal before hand) and other than that there was no problems.

       

      I also did it in one playthough which you don't have to do (you can do a Trophy playthough and a Nightmare speed run if you want).

      @Dr_Mayus  Wow, after reading that looks like I'll finally work on getting this game done in the next month or so.  Thanks!

      Yeah it only takes a couple of hours. Enjoy the plat :)

  7. I still don't get the point of the ribbons. Never made sense to me why we would need that.
  8. Finished up my Week Long Wes Anderson marathon and can say that I have finally seen Isle of Dogs and am SO glad I didn't take my nieces to see that in theaters...I would have scarred the 4 year old for life :o

     

    That being said I found it fantastic and dark and while the ending seemed a bit rushed it was a great finale to my marathon and an excellent addition to the Anderson filmography. 

     

    I also watched the H&M Christmas short he did with Adrian Brody which was quite good (although I wish it had just been a short and not a commercial for H&M :( )

     

    If I had to rank his films it would go

     

    1. Fantastic Mr. Fox

    2. Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

    3. Royal Tennebaums

    4. Isle of Dogs

    5. Darjeeling Limited

    6. Grand Budapest Hotel

    7. Rushmore

    8. Bottle Rocket

    9. Moonrise Kingdom  

     

  9. good hope it works out
  10. What part of the game are you on that would make it easier for me to remember what to do.
  11. Alpha Plat Rain - Prince of Persia Sands of Time. 

     

    Finally finished this game after so many years. Had a blast (except for the stupid combat) but once again the guide on this site forgot to mention something kind of important which makes my attempt for the 200 rewinds kind of annoying.

     

    The worst part is I read the comments (after realizing I was kind of screwed) and someone even mentions it in the comments and the guide writer responded to the comment...and then just didn't bother fixing his guide.

      @Dr_Mayus  Oh, geez.  Excellent explanation of POP and the dagger.  Thank you so much for that info!

       

      And Heavy Rain.  I followed the guide and failed 12 times, never dawned on me that the guide may of been wrong. :facepalm:

       

      Plus, on the games I never did multiple saves.  Now I'm wiser!

      Dr_Mayus

      @DamagingRob oh well the car trophy is incorrect in the guide as well :P

       

      @WaffleJedi good luck on the plat :) If you have the saves then it should be a breeze

      [another comment stressing the importance of multiple saves here, paranoia or not]
       

      Sands of Time is perhaps the easiest one to 100% (well, either it or Forgotten Sands). Warrior Within was very lenient to me, but I wouldn't take my own word for it and still advise to be careful. It's probably somewhere in the middle - not as bad as people make it to be, but not as easy to get through as I might think. Beloved as the series might be, the seams are visible and there be bugs. PS3 ports turned out to be... interesting to get through. I'd play my Steam copies, but both WW and TTT refused to run (some things just don't change :awesome:)

       

      I didn't expect to have an easy time with the Sand Snake trophy when finishing up the series, especially since local status updates containing all the trophy rage were the reason I picked TTT back up....

       

  12. Prince of Persia Sands of Time - Farah is lucky that every hole and crack in this cursed castle actually leads somewhere useful.

      lol between that and the Prince's suicidal thoughts popping in every so often when he's trying to tell his story.....

  13. I heard @Hakoom eats new born babies and then uses that to fuel his platinum hunting skills.
  14. Alpha Plat Rain - Tearaway: Unfolded I was really looking forward to this game Tearaway for the Vita is in my Top 5 favourite Vita games of all time but this game was a letdown. Now let me preface it by saying it is not a bad game...just a letdown. Tearaway worked so well on the Vita as all the Vita's gimmicks lent a lair of immersion to the game. Your fingers popped through the screen to fight enemies, your breath actually blew objects in the game, you could speak into the mic and take pictures with the cameras...but that was lost on the PS4 version. There were some gimmicks but most of it was just "hold R2" or "tap the touchpad". On top of the that the game felt needlessly long and after awhile I just wanted it to end. Once again it wasn't bad...just a letdown So can I recommend Tearaway: Unfolded...yes...but I say get the Vita version instead. Alpha Plat Rain - Beyond: Two Souls That being said I was iffy about playing Beyond: Two Souls again. I was not overly impressed with the first game (save for a few key scenes) and after replaying Heavy Rain again (a game I LOVED the first time through but was disappointed with on replay) I just didn't know. That being said replaying this game was a blast. I guess my hype level was down from the first time and I just enjoyed the story and characters. I still believe that Jodie and Aiden are among my favourite game "couples" and there were parts in this that are really powerful. Both times that Jodie loses Aiden are very emotional as anyone who lost a close friend or family member can tell you. Also Aiden coming back in the ALONE ending is still my favourite part in the game. Yeah it sucks you have to replay the ending a bunch of times (thanks @DamagingRob for trying to spare me a bunch of replays) but I really enjoyed my time coming back to this game. So just 9 games left until I Plat Rain the Alphabet
