  1. The trophy images are indeed excellent, always nice to see that little bit of care and attention put into a game. I never played Medievil on PSP, so this will be my first revisit to Gallowmere since the PSX era. I also didn't get to experience Medievil 2, so maybe that game will also get a full on remake?
  2. What Redgrave says is true, I have read some crap and some amazing books in the universe. I can definitely recommend Dan Abnett's Ciaphas Cain and Gaunt's Ghosts series. I'm personally not a huge fan of the Ultramarines and Grey Knights books, they're alright but I didn't enjoy them like I did with the previous two book series.
  3. I found out about this last week, and my heart sunk. It's that same slimy tactic I've seen in so many potentially fun games, where they nerf the reward system to increase the grind and frustrate you into buying their monopoly money (In-game currency). Companies like Activision-Blizzard, EA and Bethesda always take the piss, when it comes to monetising a game. If given the opportunity to do so. Just look at the horror stories of kids being bullied for having normal/standard in-game skins. Or kids and adults with addictive personalities wasting their money or their parents money on all those 'optional' microtransactions. Lootboxes and Microtransactions disgust me, they claim to be 'live service' games, but these sorts of transactions don't serve the customer. All they do, is allow these companies to milk even more money from a customer who's already paid for their game. These tax-avoiding, multibillion dollar companies that cry poverty, have the gall to sneak in these predatory practices, after launch. I only bought Shadow of War, after the Microtransactions were pulled. For this game, I'm going to finish the remaining trophies and leave it on a shelf, maybe trade it in. Lesson learned, don't buy from Activision now too. The only way I can see us getting rid of microtransactions and lootboxes is to make them dirty concepts, loathsome and repugnant. A surefire way to kill a game that asks for money upfront. I know legislation is going to eventually catch up with these companies, especially for lootboxes. Or 'Surprise mechanics' or whatever made-up name EA and their ilk try to rebrand them. Sorry got a little fired up, I really dislike seeing a good game, tainted like this. Especially after all the good will that was built up via the N-Sane & Re-ignited trilogies.
  4. They show off the games that are significant to them, in a certain way.
  5. I'm thinking of buying this game, was curious if the servers are still open and for how long.
  6. I know their were some differences between the various versions of the original Ghostbusters Video Game on PS3, PS3, 360, pc and Wii. Hopefully the Remaster doesn't just re-release the original game in HD. I would be fine with that, but I would like maybe a little more content. Maybe they could port over that Black Slime Tyrannosaurus Rex from the stylised version of the game? Or maybe include a few more collectables or Easter eggs? Or if they bring back Multiplayer, they should make sure it's easier to go for the trophies. I lost count of the number of times, someone got disconnected during a game, preventing me from earning specific trophies. (Again, maybe ditch the MP altogether, and do what the Nathan Drake collection did? Adding in new challenging trophy challenges)
  7. It's probably the most authentic Ghostubsters experience you'll get outside of the movies. The game was a great title, catching ghosts, beating big bad's in big bad boss battles etc. Overall it's a fu ntime. I platted the game on my old profile, and I'm hoping they don't bring back the online trophies, that or make them beatable offline. In couch Co-op.
  8. Ultra-Rare's are kind of important for me. Since usually Ultra-Rare's are harder/more challenging platinums to go for. The memories I've made and the journey to earn those platinums are more important of course. Each game I've played, has become a small part of me. I know that sounds super-sappy, but I hink games media like any other has the ability to influence and affect us, and make us grow as people.
  9. Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage Platinum #123 I've beaten the second game in the trilogy, and I had a good time overall. Their were some things that did annoy me about this game, little things like the Trolley segment. I enjoyed visiting all the different worlds the game had to offer.The boss Fights were pretty easy, but fun nonetheless. And like the first game in the Reignited Trilogy, the re-imagined versions of the characters, look fantastic. I especially liked Elora, Hunter and the Professor's redesigns. Classic PSX Hunter kinda looked strung out on drugs, due to his wide bulging eyes back in the day XD.
  10. Earned my 123rd Platinum in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage. Only one game left to go, in the Reignited Trilogy. 

  11. Spyro the Dragon Platinum #122 It seems like almost all of my original PSX gaming idols have made the leap, over to the current era of gaming. We've got Crash, Abe, Spyro and my fave skeleton Sir Daniel Fortesque this year. Spyro's updated visuals really breath a lot of life into the games. It still plays like I remember, the good and bad. But it feels like a wonderfully authentic experience. I did have to look up a guide or two, for when I couldn't remember or figure out, where the last gems were in some levels. Overall though, I had a good time with this game, nothing too hard or challenging and I'm looking forward to beating Spyro 2 and 3.
  12. Not my greatest year for Trophy hunting. I've hit several road bumps in my plain and simple ability to sit down and enjoy a game. The main one being the loss of the TV I kept in my old bedroom, which forced me to set up my PS4 downstairs. Plus I've been pretty busy over 2018, and I got into a lot of PC games.Still I at least had a lot of fun, with the games I did manage to earn platinums for. Here's to hoping 2019 is a year, where I can finish more of my backlog.
  13. Hey just wanna say congrats on your 145th Platinum. God of War (2018) was an amazing game for me, one of the more 'chill' trophy hunting experiences I've had this year. 2018's been a really good year for games, Spider-Man, God of War, Shadow of the Colossus, Red Dead Redemption 2, Spyro: Reignited Trilogy. Guacamelee 2 etc. Also in recognition of GoW being a really great game, I too will share some art. Source Link.
  14. Marvel's Spider-Man Platinum #121 Spider-Man, this game. It does everything right, it's everything I would want in a Spider-Man game. It doesn't focus on Spidey's origins, but actually takes place after Spider-Man has been around awhile. I think this is one of the best portrayals of Spider-Man, Peter Parker's double life as a hero and his normal everyday life. Great designs for Spider-Man and his suits, and all his villains. Great characters, fun and enjoyable gameplay and enough extra content to keep you busy without slowing down the game too much. Definitely the definitive Spider-Man game, I would really recommend playing this game. I had a blast with this one.
