  1. I also have to make room for new games. That's why I'm beginning with Batman. It takes up so much space on my HDD. Plus, I have to return it to my friend. Plus plus, I want to be done with it already. I'm having another date with this garbage tomorrow. Disc Jam is an ok game. It's one of two sports games I'm good at (if you consider Rocket League a sports game). I guess I could help you with Shutout! and Unstoppable trophies if you want. However, one of us would have to stay up late or wake up really early (damn you time zones). I haven't played Grim Fandango yet, but I think it's sentiment what makes this game score that high (it does score high, right?). Free games don't always suck. There were plenty of good games given out to IGC. However, they are usually indie games people never heard of. That's why they tend to say it's garbage after an hour of playing and not experiencing anything grasping. Same with graphics. Usually gamers say indie games' graphics suck just because they are not realistic like Uncharted, Battlefield and other AAA games. Graphics can be pixel art, cel-shading, cartoon. The variety of graphic styles used in games is infinite. However, there can be shit pixel art - that's when you'd use poor graphics. I'd murder anybody who said that e.g. Stardew Valley has shitty graphics. For crying out loud, just because it is pixel art it doesn't mean it's poor graphics! What's your opinion on this issue?
  2. This below is my post from another thread. I thought it could be of use for anyone struggling to get these trophies done. I spent nearly whole day trying to beat Crime Alley as Batman without getting hit. Yes, whole day. And yes, only as Batman. I managed to pull it off in the end. Now it's time for Robin and Nightwing... While playing I think I figured out the game. Beforehand, I also came up with a certain idea, it worked for me and made the challenge easier. That said, I've come from the war and I brought a handful of tips and tricks. Here's a mini-guide: Before I list the tips I'd like to introduce some game theory. Game is a program. Program is an algorithm. Algorithm is a list of instructions. Instructions that are written by a human. Humans are predictable. So are the algorithms created by them. Batman is one of these algorithms. I don't like to brag and I don't mean it, but I think I've worked this algorithm out. Playing for so long, observing and remembering enemy patterns (yes, remembering, in a seemingly unpredictable fight) I have made some conclusions. There are some patterns in enemies' behaviors the game does not inform us about. I present to you a great list of tips and tricks to tackle Batman Arkham Knight's community pack DLC (at least the fighting trophies). First off, the fucking camera. I hope that whoever made the combat camera in this game is unemployed right now. This is going to be your worst enemy. Not AI, not the level geometry, not your temporary lose of focus, not the controls. The camera is everywhere. It flies around trying to get you dizzy. I am unable to count how many times have I got hit because someone attacked me from where I couldn't see him. Fuck this camera, seriously. I was looking in the setting menu for an option called "Disable shitty camera" but couldn't find it. There is something good about the camera though. It always points towards two actions being performed by enemies - Gun Load and Dash. Also, if you're quick enough you can attack an enemy armed with a gun that camera has just pointed at. Batman should ignore other enemies in his way and attack the gunner instantly. This also applies to the dashing enemies. However, I suggest vaulting over them to be on the safe side. Then there's controls. There are several moves that are useful when tackling these challenges. Block, Counter, Vault, Cape Stun, Blade Counter/Evade, Disarm and Destroy and any needed Gadget Move. I found it hard to press + simultaneously for Disarm and Destroy. I changed with on my controller in Availability Setting on PS4. This made it infinitely easier to pull out the Disarm and Destroy move. It takes a while to get used to hitting with and stunning with , but it pays off in the end. It should only be used when playing as Batman though. He and Azazel are only capable of executing Disarm and Destroy. Disarm and Destroy is probably the most useful move in the game. It permanently removes certain weapon from the fight. When there's no armed enemies it becomes a Special Takedown. Abuse Vault. It is a move you can perform infinitely and it won't reset your combo counter AS LONG AS YOU VAULT OVER AN ENEMY. If you roll TWICE IN A ROW on the ground your combo meter is reset. Use this ability to plan your next move carefully. Take advantage of your dexterity. Batman moves quicker and basically leaps from enemy to enemy when your combo counter is x5 OR ABOVE. Raising it to this number is your first objective. Master the Blade Counter and Blade Evade technique. The second is a must. The first one just saves you time and eliminates one more enemy in the process. Animations and Batman's movement is important for you to understand if you want to succeed. As with enemies, there is also a priority in the moves you perform. There is just one move that can be performed instantly - Parry. If you press a button for stunning you WILL NOT be able to cancel that by pressing the attack button. However, during pretty much every action's animation you can mash if you see an enemy trying to attack you. If he started attacking you after a said animation started you are guaranteed to parry him. Be careful as it does not always work with enemies with blades and the unblockable attacks. I don't know if I squeezed my controller too hard here and there but it didn't work for me sometimes. My character was standing still and not responding to me pressing to counter. There are some actions granting you immunity for the time they last. You cannot be attacked during these. However, for this to work they have to be performed on a specific enemy. These entail: Blade Counter or Blade Evade, Grapple-Hooking an electrified enemy, finishing an enemy, Disarm and Destroy move, vaulting a shielded enemy previously stunned using Batman's cape (STUNNING AN ENEMY WITH A CAPE NEVER GRANTS IMMUNITY). If there is a medic near a standard enemy you should refrain from hitting this enemy as the medic can electrify him and instantly end your run (trust me, it happened to me at least three times). The assassins are known for attacking from a certain altitude. Their attacks can take them a while to perform. However, if you see them going for a wall to try to attack you and leap in order to hit them on the back and miss then your combo meter will not be reset. Keep that in mind, but I suggest not risking it if you don't have to. As I stated in the theory, enemies' have predictable patterns and take turns when attacking you. Some are more likely to take a swing at you first. With some observation I was able to devise an Enemies' Priority List of Taking Turns in Attacking a Guy Wearing Black Latex Suit and Looking Fancy, or EPLTTAGWBLSLF for short. The list is in order from the most to the least aggressive enemy: Brutes - these bastards are the most aggressive. They are most likely to attack you first as long as they are in your nearest proximity. After you perform a move which grants you immunity for a short period of time always be ready to counter or evade their attacks as these can be surprisingly quick. However, the same brute cannot attack you multiple times in a certain period of time (THIS RULE APPLIES TO ALL KINDS OF ENEMIES). So, you know you can rest for a while if you just parried one of their attacks, but don't let your guard down as they can appear out of nowhere to land a hit in an instant. They also tend to defy physics (THIS BULLSHIT ALSO APPLIES TO MOST KINDS OF ENEMIES) as they can slide to you while performing an attack. Basically just like you, they are somehow able to cover a big distance just to hit you in a face. Enemies with blades, katanas, swords, cleavers, scissors and other common things used for cutting - they are most likely to attack right after brutes when near you. You should master the blade countering technique to make you life easier. However, I do not recommend countering assassins as they are quick and have two different sequences of attacks (both of them have different speed and the timing needed is also different). They can effectively ruin your run. Suggestion: vault the assassins when the yellow warning icon appears above their heads. Stun baton enemies and electrified enemies - they should not be difficult to deal with. You're good as long as you don't come face first in them or their baton (wow, that sounds wrong). Use grappling strike (+, then ) against the electrified enemies to debuff them. Shielded pricks - now, these guys are annoying and can fuck up your run really easily. Surprisingly, they are pretty quick for guys carrying a heavy metal shield around. Most of the times you will be screwed when you decide to land just in front of them in a kissing distance as you will be bashed with a shield almost instantly. That's why you should look around while abusing vault and not land directly in front of them. However, they cannot bash you with a shield instantly after vaulting over them. Use it to your advantage as attacking you then will take them two instants rather then just one. Armed villains - yes, including guns. They are almost harmless. As long as you take out the gunners first you're good. The rest of the useless, pathetic, weak swines - they just are there for you to build up your combo.
  3. @Cassylvania You are making significant progress in EG. Congrats! Now the platinum is just a matter of time. Nice work on Shantae too. Trophies seem difficult(ish). What's my opinion about Star Wars? Well, I am not able to throw as much information as you guys. The reason behind it being the fact that I've seen the original trilogy back in my primary school days when I was too stupid to understand the plot and I was just enjoying the laser show. I barely even remember the 4th, 5th and 6th parts. I haven't seen Rogue One yet. But on Wednesday I went to see The Last Jedi with my friend. We went on a mini-marathon and seen The Force Awakens again and then The Last Jedi. I enjoyed both. Sure, there are some weird coincidences as Br1ste said, like Han Solo finding Millennium Falcon which Rey and Finn used to escape the TIE Fighters on Jakku. Because of such scenes both movies have little differences when compared to movies based on books. Some parts appear to be missing something. Also, the jokes are sometimes put in inappropriate moments and therefore the movie sometimes seems like a parody. It's more visible in The Last Jedi though. There are also some parts that don't feel right and are made just to lengthen the movie. The soundtrack and special effects in The Last Jedi are gorgeous. And the Porgs are soooooo cute I recommend you see The Last Jedi. And I have to plan myself a Star Wars marathon. As to gaming, I have a video showing the greatest bullshit I've seen in games so far. Of course it's from Batman Arkham Knight. I tried tackling Crime Alley unharmed as Robin once more yesterday. I did it on my first try. Then I decided to strike while the iron is hot and.... yeah, see for yourself. Yesterday was a good day I will also regularly update my post with tips as I continue playing so if you're going to use it remember that it's on 12th page on this thread.
  4. I am deeply sorry for the angry rant @Cassylvania. I've played a little of Batman Arkham Knight today. Now I have a ridiculous headache, my veins hurt and I want to smash something to pieces. What a great idea that was. I've cursed my best today. I've sworn in all languages known to me. Now I need to learn more languages. Also, because of swearing and shouting at a screen like a fucking dumbass my throat hurts. These challenges are not hard. The game is cheating. I'll post a video tomorrow or on Saturday. Enemies defy the laws of physics like their shoes are made of ice or they have rocket boosters in their assess. Rocksteady is awarded a Return To School Award for physics in their stupid game. Now I have to do weight training to blow off some steam...
  5. Thanks for the kind words Cassy I've returned to Batman Arkham Knight on Saturday. I spent nearly whole day trying to beat Crime Alley as Batman without getting hit. Yes, whole day.

These are not the tips that you will see in a guide. You should spend some time to read them or at least look for the most important information. Hope it helps. I'm having another date with Batman next Saturday.
  6. Wow guys! That was an impressive dispute. It took me two lessons to read the whole TV and sitcoms discussion. Your opinions encouraged me to take part in this. I might not know much about American TV but I sure am familiar with Polish. Which is garbage. I quit television completely when I started playing video games on my first console ever - PS3 (I'm an 18 yo teenager, don't be judgemental). That's right. I don't remember PS2, PSX, Pegasus or Nintendo consoles. Why did I quit? That's obvious. I began using TV to play video games. These were the last two years of my primary school I believe. Since I got my PS3 I used to watch cartoons like a dumbass that I was (and potentially still am). If I remember correctly there were already some shit shows on TV and they seem to have multiplied since then. Really, they bred like freaking rabbits. There's a handful of such in Poland - Trudne Sprawy; Dlaczego ja?; Dzień, który zmienił moje życie; Ukryta Prawda. Don't worry, you don't have to know how to pronounce them. Should you be curious here's their translation respectively: Difficult Issues; Why me?; The Day That Changed My Life, Hidden Truth. Sounds ambitious, doesn't it? They are basically staged shows about social problems - divorce, fraud, lies, abortion. Your brain would melt if you watched some of these, believe me. That's why I limit myself to YouTube or watching movies and series online. I don't ever watch TV. Not even one minute a year. Quality is the issue. When it comes to YouTube I usually watch AngryJoe, Good Mythical Morning, TearOfGrace and Sugawolf. The last two are strictly game related. A combination of gameplay and comedy. Puns all the way. Speaking of puns, I really like stand ups as well. The artist are mostly intelligent and able to present a certain situation or institution from a different perspective. Regarding movies and TV series, I like to watch a decent horror from time to time. I've watched the whole South Park, Rick and Morty and Stranger Things Season 1. Not much happening here. I'm a person that likes to eat while watching. Guess who has weight problems... If I were to pick my favorite musician or band, I wouldn't know which one to choose. I don't usually pick favorites when it comes to music as for me it's a matter of mood. I pick the genre based on my mood or what best suits the situation e.g. when driving, gaming, doing a workout (yes, I train; choo! choo!), partying or writing forum posts (there's metal pumping through my speakers as I type this). I stay away from Disco and Pop. They are WAAAAAY too generic and repetitive. There are also some independent artists that create music based on games that I like. Check out Gavin Dunne (Miracle Of Sound) on YouTube or Dan Bull if you prefer rap. Now, you mentioned the lack of creativity in today's society. I agree. However, I may belong to the current generation and you guys may be already the last, but I don't know. It's just a speculation. I just have some observations. You have to know that there is a discrepancy between me and a definition of a nowadays teenager. I don't take selfies, I don't have an Instagram account, I don't use all the 'cool' expressions and I don't abuse emojis in each sentence I write (as you can clearly see). I'm kind of ashamed to be put in a group of people that behave worse than a kid from a kindergarten. We are in high school for fuck's sake! There's no interpersonal communication without mobile phones. What's the first thing a typical teenager does when he or she comes to the restaurant? They pull out their phones! Seriously... This is a disease. I've seen two girls and a boy sit by the table at a restaurant, order food, eat their food, pay and then leave. They did not exchange a single word verbally. All they did was use their mobiles the whole time. Also, teenagers don't know what does it mean to work. They get tired after two hours of sitting on a lecture. What if they were to work physically? I spent my whole vacation working night shifts in the local store. My job was to unpack the boxes that a delivery guy was supposed to deliver, put the products on the shelves and get the excess to the storeroom. It wasn't a full-time job. I worked about 10 - 15 hours a week. You can laugh. But I am proud of this. I went to work no matter the weather (and it wasn't always pretty believe me, there were thunderstorms and torrential rain). I did not care about the money that much. Sure, some coins will come in handy as since August I am a godfather to my cousin's daughter. I wanted to feel what it is like to work. Become more self-reliant. And I managed to achieve it. I did not go anywhere this holiday because of work. This is what's missing in my generation. The eagerness to become independent, self-reliant. Some think they can live off their parents and don't realize the roles will have to change one day. My generation is childish. I feel like we've retrogressed...
  7. Thanks for your supports guys. @Cassylvania Copy that, no more images By the way, I bought Darkest Dungeon yesterday. It's gonna be fun...
  8. Well, I think I am going to change something in these updates... First of all, no more stories. Second, no regularity. I'll just write when I feel like or made big progress. Last but not least, updates are not going to be clean and divided into several parts anymore. Also, no more questions of the week bullshit. That didn't work out and was pointless. I don't think you care that much, but here's why: I am currently having some school-related problems and need much more time than ever. Plus, I don't feel like updating anymore. I just don't have the time to keep it all clean and fancy. Besides, I was feeling like sometimes it was my thread and not Cassylvania's. And that should not happen. My posts were on every page of the thread which I have butted into. I am not completely withdrawing, I'll participate in discussions should there be any and say something from time to time. The list of games stays and will be preceded with a short text. That's all. Thank you for reading my past posts. Now you'll have less to read How has it been going on for me? Not bad, but I've been better. I finally got my driving license, so now it's time to buy myself a car. I wonder how will I afford one. When it comes to gaming, I've completed Horizon along with all it's DLCs. I don't know why it has so many high scores. It's average at most. I felt like I was fighting the camera and not the machines this whole time. Plus, The Frozen Wilds is not as long as it is said to be. I don't know how you could play it for 20 - 25 hours. I've done everything there was to do and it took me about 10 hours. I'm calling bullshit. I have played some horror games. Finished Layers of Fear that was in my backlog for a long time. Played The Park - ugh, that was a bad game. I completed it in an hour and a half without using a guide and experienced some cheap jumpscares. It's not worth neither your time nor your money. Also, I started Kholat. It creates a pretty good atmosphere and is a good test for everyone considering themselves professional map users. I recommend trying this one.

  9. Hello everyone! It was a good week for me. Kinda lousy at school so I had plenty of time for my C++ and Pixel Art online courses. I also managed to pass my driving license exams. Theoretical and practical, both on first try! I am now feeling accomplished and a bit less nervous. UPDATE #7 23.10.2017 On Saturday, I came back home in the morning. I was at my friend's house drinking on Friday. It took me some time before I took care of all house chores. I was ready to play at 3 p.m. I took care of the speedrun trophy in Maize first, then got a new trophy that came out for Killing Floor 2 and lastly went on to play South Park The Fractured But Whole. This game is pure gold. I loved The Stick of Truth and The Fractured But Whole provides much more of the same, but on steroids. I like the new combat system, but I'd rather have items than artifacts as sources of my power. I'm not saying it's bad. It was just a bit complicated at first, but I'm slowly getting a hang of it. On Sunday, I played South Park again. I also encountered a glitch. The game began autosaving and for about an hour and a half it would not finish. I wasn't able to save my game, so I had to turn it off without doing so. I lost all progress I made during autosaving. I'm not really angry about this, because I don't mind playing through it once more. It's not much. I am glad my save data didn't corrupt. Question of the week: Have you watched South Park series? If so, how many seasons did you see? I fell in love with South Park series when I started watching it for the first time. I started things off with Season 1 and during one year I watched all 19 Seasons. I watched most of them during summer when I had a lot of time. Now I'm up to date with the series and I watch every new episode. I had fun most of the time, however the 20th Season is my least favorite. I made a separate list of Halloween games I am going to play for a week (28.10 - 05.11). Fortunately, I am having a long weekend starting 1st of November so I'll have plenty of time.

  10. I just bough four (well, actually six) games form the Halloween sale. I bought Alien Isolation, Devil May Cry HD Collection, The Park and Kholat. I was torn between Kholat and Uncanny Valley so I left it up to the spinning wheel to decide. Kholat won the best of five lottery. I wanted to get some new horror games from the sale. And I managed to buy DMC HD Collection for such a cheap price. Generally, I am happy with my purchase. As for the question I asked: I agree with everyone at least partially. How do I use guides? Well, if I am just starting a game I check what to look out for. I take a quick peek at missable trophies and that's all. However, if I don't mind missing some trophies I just don't use a guide at all. Batman Arkham Kinght is a game I used a guide for missable trophies (if I remember well there weren't any, but I did check if I should keep an eye on something). But I am sure as hell not going to use a guide for South Park The Fractured But Whole because I don't mind playing the game twice or even three times if needed. When it comes to collectibles I first try to find a text guide. Then I tend to just look at the general location of a certain collectible. If I spend 5 minutes actively looking for it in the specified area I just read it's whereabouts in a guide to save myself some time. If I'm really desperate and there are no text guides I use YouTube. Well, well. South Park The Fractured But Whole came to me yesterday and it's beautiful https://ibb.co/mD3yFm
  11. Well, that week was hard, but the upcoming one is even harder. I barely had time to play this weekend. I was on a party on Friday. My friend had her 18th birthday and threw a party for approx. 40 people. I had good time. Also, I could meet my long-time-no-see friend. Got home at 4 a.m. on Saturday and got up 5 hours later to clean the house and take care of all the chores. Then I helped my father bring upstairs a 4,5 x 5 meters carpet. Damn it was heavy. Later, I went to see my goddaughter. UPDATE #6 15.10.2017 On Saturday, when I came back home at 8 p.m. I sat down to Maize and finished the story in 4 hours or so. Throughout the course of the game I collected 70 out of 75 Folio items for the gold trophy. I was falling asleep with the controller in my hands so I decided to finish it the next day. On Sunday, I got up at 10 a.m. which is quite late for me. I am very angry when I waste time. Hence me sleeping about 6 hours a night. I had very little time to play. I jumped into Maize for a quick clean up of the remaining 5 Folio Items and I also managed to complete the first mission in AC: Syndicate. Wow! What a great day to rest after a whole week of school and work. That half hour game break was what I really needed. I am also very sarcastic. Every. Day. Every. Sentence. I got the idea to ask you guys a weekly question with every update I make. You don't have to answer. I promise I won't track you down and steal all your cookies while you sleep. Of course, I will continue only with Cassylvania's consent. I will however let myself ask the first question today: I COLLECTED THE REMAINING FOLIO ITEMS WITH A GUIDE, THEREFORE I WONDER WHAT'S YOUR OPINION ON TROPHY GUIDES? DO YOU USE THEM ONLY IF REALLY NEEDED OR STUDY THEM THOROUGHLY BEFORE PLAYING A GAME SO THAT YOU KNOW HOW TO COMPLETE SAID GAME AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE? @Spaz I appreciate your cheering but I am waiting for the right moment to commit myslef to these challenges. Maybe next weekend? We'll see about that. @Avalynch Good job on Legend of Kay! I also bought the Humble Bundle. I'm gonna play 8 games out of 14 I got. Two of these are on PS3 and I already platted these. I'm not gonna play Arcania, Super Smash Bros, the Motocross game and BattleWorld Kronos. Well, they are not the game I'd like to dedicate time to. Mostly negative feeling from this week and even worse feelings toward the next. But hey, I will welcome South Park: The Fractured But Whole on Tuesday and probably start playing on weekend. I am also collecting scary games to play near the end of the month. I have Layers of Fear to finish, The Evil Within, Amnesia Collection and I will try to buy Alien: Isolation as well. I'm really eager to see Halloween Deals on PlayStation Store too. Wonder what they prepared...

  12. I am missing just three trophies which for some doesn't seem to be that bad. But it is. I've done the easiest ones from the Community Pack. Now I'm left with the most ridiculous trophies there are. I've read many tips for this and thought of some on my own. I'll try them out as soon as I get down to Batman and let you all know if they work and make it easier.
  13. For me, a person who is as you said "okay" Batman Arkham Series player - not very good, but above average, it is something between catching 10 gummy bears thrown at you from 5 meters straight into your mouth while looking directly at the sun AND grabbing a mosquito's left testicle while wearing a boxing glove. Respectively, it is possible with enough practice, but very tiring, discouraging and frustrating in the process.
  14. Well that week went quickly, didn't it? No, I just made two updates in one day. So, in order to be regular in posting my progress I will try to update my profile on Sunday evening weekly. Hopefully I'll be able to maintain that regularity for longer than a month. What happened in my life during this week? Nothing extraordinary. I finally went to the cinema to see "It", then went drinking with my friend. If somebody asked me whether it's worth seeing Stephen King's book screen adaptation I would say: "Definitely.". "Why?" - you may ask. Well, I've only read one King's book and can with confidence say that Muschietti's movie really lets a viewer feel the style of Stephen's writing. I claimed "It" the best screen adaptation of a book I have ever seen after 40 minutes. If you are a fan of the genre, you should definitely watch Pennywise's story. After seeing the movie, we drank some booze ( in reasonable amounts ) and went home. End of story UPDATE #5 08.10.2017 On Saturday I sat down with an intention to finish 101 Ways To Die. And I managed. However, I would like to get back most of the time I spent with the game. Envision a puzzle game with RNG elements. It was so frustrating to replay the same level over and over and over again just to get lucky and have a fan blow a Splatt ( a Splatt is not a celebrity; I mean an electrical fan to cool you down in summer). Some levels really felt cheap. But with that out of the way I will stop complaining. Then I decided to download Hue and check it out. It sucked me in so much that I completed the story in one sitting ( it is short, but still ). I didn't use any guides or videos and I'm proud of it. I don't play many puzzle or platforming games, but I liked Hue a lot. The unique graphic style, innovative game concept and gameplay, soothing soundtrack and responsive controls really make this title a gem hidden in the stack of useless rocks. I did not have as much time as I would like to have on Sunday, but still managed to play for about an hour. I decided to start a new game - Maize - which some might label as another boring walking simulator, but I would not agree. Yes, it is indeed a walking simulator ( kind of ), but all of this can be forgiven if you focus on the story and humor. The game is hilarious so far. I am looking forward to playing it next weekend. I also added some games to my Waiting-For-Me-To-Have-Some-Time-To-Complete-Them-So-That-I-Get-My-Money-Worth Games List. Most of these I will try to complete as soon as I can. Spy Chameleon and Batman Arkham Kinght I will be "nibbling", because of their tendency to irritate me.

  15. Yeah, I know, It's been long since I last posted. It was mostly caused by lack of time or tiredness. However, I'm back. Will try to update regularly from now on. UPDATE #4 08.10.2017 On Saturday (I mean the last Saturday of September) I was nearly done with Uncharted The Lost Legacy (which I played a lot the previous weekend). I was left with getting all collectibles, finishing Crushing run and getting to Chapter 5 without firing a weapon or using an explosive. Basically, fists only. I got all collectibles and went halfway through Crushing mode. I believe I played a bit of PvZ:GW2 and several Battlefield 1 games. I also played a bit of 101 Ways To Die. I bought this game in order to make my ordeal for Community Challenge Pack from Akrham Knight a little less frustrating. I equated developers working for Rocksteady that thought such a DLC pack would be fun with Splatts you are supposed to kill in 101 Ways To Die. This game is the exact opposite of Lemmings of Flockers. You are supposed to place traps in a way to kill all Splatts. On Sunday I finished my Crushing playthorugh in Uncharted and got the platinum in the evening. Also, played a bit of 101 Ways To Die, Battlefield 1, Star Wars Battlefront and PvZ:GW2. Not a very productive day. 101 Ways To Die is not on the list because I don't remember what was my progress on Sunday. I will add it when I make an update covering this weekend (7th and 8th of October).
