  1. Going after Crypt of the Necrodancer is crazy.
  2. Casual means you are average. You’re nobody special, you’re just some guy who buys a few AAA games a year. Generally something like Red Dead Redemption, Call of Duty, a new Madden NFL game or Days Gone. You finish the story, then you move on to playing multiplayer with your friends. I don’t consider something like Super Meat Boy casual, unless you are one of countless thousands of people who played for 30 - 60 minutes then gave up because it was too hard. Casuals also avoid niche games and typically go after games heavily focused on a certain theme, like Call of Duty. Indie games aren’t a big part in most casual gamers lists. Casuals are those who preorder and buy 3 - 5 AAA games a year. They are not completionists, they play until the story ends and then they move on to other things.
  3. I decided to drop Assassins Creed 3 and Assassins Creed Unity for now. I’m not in the mood to play another open world game and I’d much rather get to Dark Souls for my 200th platinum sooner rather than later.

     

    After some research I have bought The Mummy Demastered and Castlevania Requiem: Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night. Both should be pretty fun Metroidvanias. Once those are finished it’s on to Trine 2: Complete Story.  

     

    I expect to get number 200 in late June - July.

     

  4. That I cannot help with. I haven’t found a solution to what games you’ve played recently because they will show up even if you barely touched them.
  5. He had a trophy profile on here before he decided to hide it. He rated Slain: Back From Hell a 6 out of 10 and I saw in his video footage he was just hacking and slashing at the enemies. I give the game an 8 out of 10, nothing great but fairly decent. He has done a lot of NES games where he completes them in one sitting. Cornshaq mostly does indie games which a lot of YouTubers just outright skip. But if you’re looking for someone with a somewhat different outlook and reviews a variety of games, he’s a good YouTuber to follow.
  6. I have done it off the PS4 XMB. Go to the trophies section and sync your account. Once done highlight over any game with 0 percent, press the start button on your controller and there should be an option to delete it off your account.
  7. I avoid free to play games. I’ve played plenty on my iPhone and on my desktop computer and the amount of money you have to spend to reduce the grinding is ridiculous. It’s a way of spending more money just to get some virtual bling rather than rely on a game that appreciates you as a player. I don’t mind grinding in general as much as I’m annoyed with spending $50 - 100 to speed up the grinding process.
  8. All seven games completed. Would like to join the ranks of ‘Champion of the Gods’.
  9. I have all nine games completed. Would like to join the ranks of ‘Lombax Praetorian’.
  10. I reckon a few people blocked me for that thread I made two months ago regarding the rankings that had most of everyone here attacking me because I was talking ‘smack’ for something that they enjoy. Since then I’ve had a few people who I will not name on my block list. I don’t easily block people but if it comes down to just attacking me for my opinions then I will not hesitate.
  11. As a lover of classic games I don’t have my hopes set on a platinum for the upcoming Contra Collection that Konami has finally decided to release for the modern systems. Hopefully a new generation will discover and appreciate what I felt was the pinnacle of Konami, even though I came very late to the scene. 

     

    I feel it is absolutely ridiculous that a collection like the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is priced at $40, but it is just as much of a collection as the old Mega Man collections that are half as much. The Castlevania Requiem Collection has a platinum and is offered at a reasonable price of $19.99, which is probably why it still garners a number of active players despite how old those two games are. 

     

    There is no standard or balance to the way trophies are distributed and especially in regards to what price point is determined.

     

    The Capcom Beat Em Up Bundle is a bit pricy but it offers several old classic arcade games, with one online trophy. No platinum. 

     

    The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary has been out for longer on the PlayStation Store, but I have to pay twice the amount for what is essentially just three Street Fighter games. Street Fighter II had a number of rehashes and releases, which I don’t consider to be a separate game. I guess this is being charged a lot more because of the fame and popularity of the Street Fighter franchise. But $39.99 for an old collection is just far too much. 

     

    The first Konami collection of old shmups comes with a platinum, though it is an easy one to get. The classic Castlevania collection doesn’t have a platinum, and I reckon the Contra collection won’t have one either. 

     

    It’s all over the place. I did the Mega Man X Legacy Collection Volume 1 set last Fall and I enjoyed it immensely. It featured a proper trophy list. Most Capcom collections and now a couple  Konami collections do not feature a platinum, whoever is doing these trophy lists is doing a poor job at it. 

     

    What are your thoughts on this?

      This could be because it’s not as good as you remember it.

      I liked it a lot back then. Maybe it's better to just leave in the past. I will make my final decision after i see some gameplay from this collection. 

       

      Thanks for info!

      Well, to be fair, we didn't have the kind of games we do today. We just appreciated what we got back then.

      This generation of gamers are spoilt for choice, I swear.

  12. All the old classic games I have in my trophy profile have had a save feature or rewind of some sort, and this is no different. This collection is no different, so the trophies won’t be as difficult to get. I give major respect and props to all those kids who grew up in the NES era and were able to beat these games legit.
  13. As I said in another topic like this one, this is a stupid idea. If hackers are that bothered then then they can just hide the 1000+ trophies that they cheated on and still remain on the leaderboards. Those who were too late to a game because the online servers closed, then tough luck. This is basically erasing a portion of your history as a gamer and then they can go around pretending it never happened. Trophies would be worth no more than Steam Achievements, which are easily gained with a program you can get that automatically gets them for you. What’s the point? This strips all the fun, challenge and satisfaction out of trophy hunting. Just hide your trophies. That’s the only real solution.
  14. You should be a writer. I’m just saying.
