  1. I guess I will eventually try those forums, but I thought I might be able to get valuable input here, too. If I unplug it, the sounds instantly stop.
  2. Hey, I noticed today that my barely used Xbox One S makes a buzzing, electrical noise when it is completely shut off. It is not very loud, but if you get close to the console, there is no denying it. I own quite a few consoles and have never noticed one ever behaving like this. Because of this I am a bit worried. I've googled the issue and this seems to be a problem, or to have less negative connotations: stituation, that has been discussed quite a bit over the last few years. Usually in those threads there is someone who says that the console needs to activate the power saving mode, but often the sounds coming from the console persist anyway. For me, this is the case as well. I have also tried the Full Shutdown option, still the sound never fully stops. Ultimately, I think I'd be able to disregard these sounds, but for that to happen I would have to know that this is just normal - for whatever reason. Maybe someone has insight into this. In the threads I've encountered, there seems to be two camps; one claiming that the noises coming from the console when it's shut off are normal, others pushing people to replace their console because it's apparently broken. Are these sounds "normal"? Should I be worried? Have you experienced this yourself? Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time. Edit: I can now say that not every Xbox One S sounds like mine did. So it may be a common thing, but those sounds definitely weren't right. Got a new one now and it's very quiet.
  3. I don't understand why you would do that if you hate the game that much, given your total completion rate isn't even at 60%. Not saying that to belittle you, I'm genuinely interested in why. You have Red Dead Redemption 2, Super Meat Boy and The Last of Us on your list, just to name the first three games on there that caught my eye. All of those games could have been played for 100 hours easily and you would probably have enjoyed yourself more. I get that there's a bunch of people on this site that can't break away from their OCD, which is fine, I'm not judging. My recommendation would be to focus it on great games first. Then, once you finished all of them, you can still grind terrible games. If you're really lucky, you'll be stuck at the great games forever and you will have spared yourself the pain of having to endure something you hate doing.
  4. Reprieve is really nice to have, but there's a few problems with it. 1. It's harder to acquire than Barrier, 2. Reprieve can only save you once, but for an inexperienced player Bahamut will likely be able to pull off two Megaflares during the fight instead of just one and 3. If you don't know how to fight properly yet, you may lose Reprieve before Bahamut does Megaflare. Since it can only be activated once per battle, that would leave you helpless.
  5. Götterdämmerung trivializes a lot of fights, especially non-boss battles are often over the second they start. Grinding your character and materia levels is pretty quickly done at the start of chapter 16 too. If you are going for the platinum, you'll have to beat Pride and Joy anyways, so you might as well do it right away. The only hard thing is the Bahamut fight anyway and even that isn't bad as long as you use Manaward to half the damage taken from his instakill attack. Just run Barrier materias on two characters and it won't be that hard. That all being said, I just got Götterdämmerung today, just after finishing the first 13 chapters without it. Playing on hard definitely makes you learn the battle system properly. I feel like I appreciate it more now, because I didn't really get it going through on easy. You dont have to use Items, Magic or Staggermechanics at all on easy. Tl;dr If you just want the game to be as easy as it can be, go for Götterdämmerung first. If you wanna be good at the game, do hard mode first.
  6. Anyone who's curious to see if you get the trophy as a joining player can join me right now. I'm a third or so through the mission. If it doesn't pop I'll return the favor and help you afterwards. Just send me a message, whoever might be interested. Edit: Eventually invited someone from my friends list. They had Almost a Band as well as Extreme Manhunt pop at the end of the mission too.
  7. So instead of making a new thread in this so far very silent subforum, I'm just gonna use this one instead and hope that what I wanna suggest is just kind of off topic. Since the second trophy list for ESO got added, the little title card in the trophy list has changed; instead of "Tamriel Unlimited" it says "Volume I", which fits perfect to the "Volume II" on the second lists icon. Would it be possible to maybe change that in this sites trophy list? "Additional Expansions" could be changed to "Volume II" and "Tamriel Unlimited" to "Volume I". It would please me immensely. And yes, I know that's kind of a strange thing to care about. From what I've heard, @BlindMango could potentially have the power to grant this wish. Also, I think @Sergen would like that change too.
  8. Does anyone know how and when you can craft ammo? Those recipes are still all locked for me.
  9. Not super hard, I guess it'll be hard to not unlock it before hitting lvl 50.
  10. How is that possible? I had every resistance at 100% and he could still kill me. Also, as far as i understand the game, only fire resistance should matter for this fight anyways, right?
  11. Best preparation for Mein Leben is to play Wolfenstein II on I Am Death Incarnate difficulty. Basically the same difficulty but with checkpoints.
  12. It happened to me too, guess it's normal.
  13. My theory would be that the ingame counter tracks the strangers needed for the 100% completion trophy. This can be single part stranger quests. The social club counter tracks the exact trophy progress for the Western Strangers trophy, for which only multipart quests count. Or it might just be glitched.
  14. You're right. Social Club and ingame tracker don't work the same. Ingame I have completed 10+, on the Social Club the trophy progress is at 80%. I'm guessing not all Stranger missions count for the trophy then. I know and I have. Like I have said before, the ingame counter has become a checkmark, meaning the game counts at least 10 as done. Afterwards I completed 2 more, which didn't change anything. I'm just doing them all, guess it'll unlock eventually.
  15. I completed 12 stranger mission strands and got no trophy for it. Under Progression - Total Completion - Strangers it used to count up showing x/10. Once it hit 10, it changed to a checkmark. Shouldn't that have unlocked the trophy for me? Am I missing something? Edit: Not every stranger mission counts. The Rockstar Social Club shows your real progression under the trophy tab. Don't be worried, this trophy is not glitched.
