  1. This might be it right here. I didn't make an account beforehand, and even with internet disconnected and on version 1.00 I was given the Bethesda prompt. I couldn't go past it. Unless there is some secret way to get past it, I can't play on version 1.00. The thing is, you had a steady amount of platinum achievers prior to version 1.07 - 1.08. Look at the latest 50 achievers, most of them all got the platinum earlier this year, which was before 1.07 - 1.08 hit. Now, with version 1.08, there is a lot less people going for the platinum. The latest achiever got the platinum early November, which was a month ago. According to this website there are 122 platinum achievers for DOOM 2. Not a bad number, given how old this game is. But... doing some simple math, there are approximately 228 people who have just the Nightmare Co-Op trophy left before platinum, including myself. There are even more people who don't have the speedrun trophy in addition to not having Nightmare Co-Op. In comparison, the speedrun trophy is piss easy compared to Nightmare. Granted this game doesn't have many game owners, but over 200 people not having that Nightmare Co-Op trophy really says a lot in how bullshit and difficult it is. It's like comparing with Vanquish, which I counted a good 5000 - 6000 people who didn't have the Tactical Challenger trophy, but whom had everything else unlocked. Anyway, that's a significant amount of people who don't have Nightmare. I think id Software/Bethesda should of either had Nightmare with single player allowing saves, or give us an actual multiplayer co-op mode where you can boost the trophy with someone else. Share Play just doesn't cut it. He's played the game for a very long time, and generally those speedrunners pour in several hundred if not thousands of hours into one game to get record times. The videos will help, but I could never replicate his skills. The best I can hope for is reverting to an earlier version of DOOM II and taking each level one step at a time.
  2. Finally making headway in Grand Theft Auto III. I printed out a much useful 100 percent checklist of everything I need to do.

     

    Definitely doing the side content before the main missions. What caused me to scrap my first playthrough is the fact that after a certain point, gang members become a lot more common and aggressive. I couldn't pass the Rampages on the first island after I did all the story missions there, doing Paramedic and Taxi Fare was too difficult because gang members would shoot up the vehicles causing them to explode. This also applies to the other two islands if you pass all the story missions before doing the side content.

     

    Maybe it's not impossible to do the side content afterwards, but it's definitely far easier to do it ahead of time. With the dated controls and age of this game I couldn't bear to do the side content after the story missions which caused me to scrap Grand Theft Auto III for months.

     

    Vice City and San Andreas are both far more enjoyable in my opinion. With the exception of Take the Cannoli trophy in Vice City, playing the next two GTAs should be a lot of fun.

      Yeah, finishing the main game before doing the emergency vehicles side missions basically puts you in danger of not being able to complete them due to the gang members becoming incredibly hostile to you in certain areas of the map.

       

      Particularly difficult is the Italian mafia in Portland island, the guys with the shotguns can make short work of your vehicle in one or two shots. I know because I had to complete my missions like this. More than once I got a heart-triggering vehicle explosion from a shotgun guy that appeared out of nowhere while driving around. Not fun, lol. xD

  3. Part of the problem is physical Vita games are awfully expensive, due to limited supply. With PS3 games I basically bought used on either eBay or some retailer out there that sold them cheap. With Vita games, I often find I have to pay around $25 - 30 for some of them when I can save a bunch of money buying the same games off the PS Store. I often find buying physical much cheaper with the PS3, with the Vita it’s the opposite. The stores are barely maintained at all at this point, making grabbing digital games for the few of us still playing on these consoles a real pain in the ass.
  4. I had to start paying taxes around 2017 - 2018, making digital purchases a bit more expensive. You guys in Canada will be joining us. It sucks, but it is what it is.
  5. PS3 had a system update in Dec 2020, basically worthless at this point.

      The point I was making is it's an old console so it doesn't really need updates in my opinion.

      Fair enough.

      Because it’s not just third world countries using PS3s as BluRay players, stop being ignorant. And any device which still connects to the internet and handles financial transactions should absolutely receive security updates, no matter it’s age, no exceptions. 

  6. Awesome review, you fucking nailed it, sums up my thoughts about Assassin's Creed and Ubisoft (Ubishit to be frank). There is so much I love about Assassin's Creed, but there is so much I don't like about it. Been off and on with the series for around a decade now. As for the bugs and inconsistencies, this is something that Sony Computer Entertainment has ALWAYS done better. If God of War Ragnorak comes released in this kind of state I would be bitching my head off. As much as I've given hate towards Sony in recent months, you will never see them crank out as many games in a franchise as Ubisoft has done for Assassin's Creed. Assassin's Creed, the series millions of fans both love and hate. If Ubisoft gave themselves a bit more time to develop games, they could truly crank out a masterpiece. But I can't think of one game in the last four - five years that I can say is truly a masterpiece. Worse yet, I still have to play Watch Dogs, which is a pile of dung heap in comparison to Assassin's Creed.
  7. What did I tell you guys? THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS BITCHING ABOUT IN A STATUS UPDATE.
  8. The version I'm looking for in particular is version 1.05, or version 1.06. That was when the annoying Bethesda.net login was removed so you are free to play a new game. In my case, the enemies (Pinkies especially) are far more difficult to deal with on version 1.08, they move much faster and the projectiles are pure hell to even avoid. Share Play isn't an option for me due to slow internet where I currently live. Everything I don't have on my trophy list in terms of skill I can do on my own, but DOOM 2 could be the first game I will ever throw in the towel. It's just far too difficult.
  9. This is WHY it took me as long as it did to get the challenges done. Top of the World (Extreme) is just awful. Absolutely hated it, took nearly forever to finish it with the three DLC characters (Catwoman, Robin, Nightwing).
  10. Sorry to hear this. I gave up too, the fact the enemies move much faster along with the projectiles going at higher speeds basically put an end to my run. It's just far too hectic on your own.
  11. GTA V has enough. Rockstar basically cashed in on GTA Online for nearly an entire generation until RDR 2 came out. The Doomsday Heist just sounds like utter torture. GTA IV would have to be revamped. Enjoyed it for what it was back on the Xbox 360 when I played it a decade ago. Pigeons were some of the worst collectibles I ever gone for in gaming. Looking at the game today, there are several aspects of it that didn’t age well.
  12. There was a guy who got the platinum in under a week, but either he got flagged for suspicious timestamps, or he made his account private. The fastest time is one week, four days. That’s 11 days. If you play this for 14 - 15 hours a day, it’s quite possible to finish this game in under two weeks. But I can’t imagine Red Dead Redemption 2 being any fun.
  13. For anyone annoyed with this, Killzone 3 had a separate list called Killzone 3 multiplayer. If you don’t want to hassle with random morons then just boost the entire thing anyway. Curious to know what the trophy list will be.
  14. I still know Vice City and Los Santos/San Fierro/Las Venturas by heart, so I won’t have issues navigating those cities. Times have changed because every AAA game literally holds your hand now. You had to learn everything on your own back in the day. Thought of picking up Sunset Riders.
