  1. I seem to recall you mentioning that you were waiting for Trials of Mana to drop in price. I checked Amazon today, and it seems you can pick up the physical version for $19.99 now, if you're interested.

      Shit - that's too bad. I just picked one up myself. 😗

  2. The dlc doesnt have trophies and there is only one trophy set for the game so you will be fine
  3. Lol, I predicted this 😁 I said that after sony made a bunch of money on old stuff they would say "just kidding"
  4. I got 3 stars in Tatooine but still needed needed 38,000 points for the points trophy.
  5. Nickle and diming levels in Star Wars Angry Birds trying to get enough points for the Tatooine high score trophy.

     

    38,000 still to go 😪

      Finally got it. That is 1 world done 😁

  6. That is like these brand new IPs that come with collector editions Maybe developers should concentrate on releasing full complete games instead if nickling and diming everything. I havent bought a new game at launch in years because companies have taught us to wait for game of the year editions.
  7. Glad to hear that for both of you 😁
  8. Yes, Sackboy would be the mascot. I know when I worked for Sony that was how he was seen as he could become any character. My nieces have never heard of uncharted or last of us but they and their friends know who Sackboy is
  9. Who remembers this PS3 commercial? Still probably my favourite gaming commercial of all time

      Classic. 

       

      My favorites, though, goes back much further, all the way to the NES. I can't even find them online, but the Ultima games had their own commercials, and they were hilarious. The artist who degenerates into stick figures because he's playing Quest of the Avatar might be my favorite.

      Another cool one is this GOW Chains of Olympus one. I saw this at an Advertisement Festival where you sat in a theatre and watched the best ads of the year. This was the only gaming ad picked that year

       

       

      Lol, also forgot about that r&c commercial. That was great.

      Long live play... until the stores are taken down... or your internal battery dies & Sony stops supporting the servers. 😅

       

      But yeah, I loved that commercial. The Ratchet & Clank ones were great too. xD I never actually seen it aired, but I seen this online ages ago & thought it was a pretty cool Coke commercial:

       

  10. It will be a shame when the LBP plats are unobtainable as Sackboy is the closest thing to a mascot Sony has now and LBP really started the sharing community on PS3
  11. #321 - Final Fantasy VII Remake (long post...sorry) So let me start by saying I was very against this game when it came out. I hated that they divided up the main game into episodes because knowing Square we won't be seeing Part 2 anytime soon. I then started hearing all the horror stories about the unfair difficulty and thought "screw this game I have the original". Well it was free on Plus so I thought "what the hell" and decided to give it a go. I will start by addressing the difficulty...it is vastly overrated. I was very worried about playing on hard but besides Ch. 14 Abzu and Rufus no boss gave me any trouble (and Abzu was the only boss i had to look up a guide for). I then heard about the Pull Up mini-game...beat it after 4 or 5 tries as it is just pressing 4 buttons in a row. I am not trying to sound like a dick or anything but this game is a 4/10 in terms of difficulty. Also I am happy for that as there are too many games ruined by a crushing difficulty that sucks all the fun out of the experience...luckily FF7R was not one of those games. Moving on to the segmented releases...I still think that is bullshit. That being said I very much enjoyed my time with the first game so I guess if I never get to play any more FF7R I at least had an enjoyable 40 hour game. It is funny, when I first played FF7 my friend and I beat Midgar and were convinced that that was going to be the end of the first disc (as we weren't used to playing anything that epic before) so I guess Square felt the same way with this release. As for the story changes...if you read my early status updates I was pretty annoyed that we wasted so much time with the Avalanche crew and that Cloud was such a douche. I was warned by a few people that I had to wait as that played into the story more later and they were right. It was the Wall Market chapter that made me start liking Cloud and the chapter where you climb the tower by yourself was much more intense knowing a little about the people you were trying to save. So I for one enjoyed the changes to the story. The battle mechanics. Turn based combat will always have a special spot in my heart but I loved the change to the battle system. It made it feel so much more fast paced and the final battle against Sephiroth just felt bigger as you kept switching between characters each taking their shots against him. Also my final moment of the game was Sephiroth having minimal life left and both Tifa and Cloud earned their limit breaks. I activated both of them and switched to Aerith to watch the ass kicking of a lifetime Obviously the graphics and sound were top notch...that is nothing to fret about with a Square game. But just little things like rats running around your feet or materia showing up on your weapons (except for Aerith...where is her fucking rod) was all a nice touch. Also I thought the physics engine of knocking things over made certain parts extra funny. The first time I got to Shinra I spent a good amount of time knocking over all the chairs in the dining area and laughing to myself that this was Avalanche's big "fuck you" to Shinra...messing up their eating area 😂 So in conclusion, i loved this game and hope I get a chance to play another part of it (I still have lots of items to use up).

    After doing one of my favourite plats I decided to change gears and play a terrible game.

     

    I bought Duck Dynasty for a $1 years ago as a joke platinum for 300 but when I got to 300 I didnt want to play it

      I didn't pay $1 for it but I have had a copy for a while also and have yet to play it.

      I'm starting to wonder how many meme games you got up your sleeve still, haha.

      😂 actually not too many. Most have beaten already just this has been sitting on my shelf for like 6 years.

       

      I was thinking of saving for 400 but will probably just figure something else out for that.

  13. It took me a little over 65 hours. I think 60ish is the average it should take. I decided to skip the chapter 14 quests as I was breezing through Hard mode anyways and didnt feel I needed them.
  14. Plat 320 - Final Fantasy 7 Remake - Sephiroth's health was almost gone and at that moment both Tifa and Cloud got their limit breaks...released both of them at the same time and sat back and watched the fireworks.

     

    Will give more thoughts tomorrow but anyone following my status updates probably guessed that I enjoyed the game quite a bit.

      Good job! I just wish you decided to go for the 100% closer to the release of Intergrade. I'm tempted to dip my toe back in thanks to you being all positive. You should enjoy things on my schedule dammit.

      lol, I do my best but not everything goes according to plan :D

       

      Seriously though I wanted nothing to do with this game when it first came out. I am so happy it came to Plus because I would have missed out on a great experience.

  15. Why are gamers hardwired for loot?

     

    In FF7R you can't use items on hard...but I still open every treasure chest 😅

      This game actually helped me get over my problem of not using items. In this game i actually use potions😂.

       

      I don't however use the items that cure status effects yet, so some way to go yet.😂
