  1. Unfortunately you have to clear the game on hard before crushing unlocks.
  2. As most people have said, the original trilogy are the best by far. All 3 are up there with some of the best games of my childhood and they hold up surprisingly well today. I actually liked Deadlocked, but as it was a big change from the first 3, I can see why a lot of people don't! I haven't played the 2 PSP games (Size Matters and Secret Agent Clank so can't comment on those). Tools of Destruction is a very good game (so annoying there's no trophies!) Quest for Booty I found terrible; it's a "mini-adventure" and thought it was a waste of time. A Crack In Time again is good, but for some reason I just found it not on the level of the first 3. Into The Nexus is another shorter game and is pretty good again, but not amazing. Full Frontal Assault was another okay game if you like the genre, but you can completely skip it if need be as it doesn't add much to the story. And that fucking trophy for walking, hoverbooting, and hoverboot gliding was a nightmare; literally just walked for hours after I completed everything else just for that trophy. Plus there's online shit! And then we come to the worst game in the franchise. All 4 One. I suppose it might be enjoyable if you have a friend to play it with and you both hate yourselves? For me, it was terrible. The gameplay was dire and the story wasn't much better; it was clearly made just to be a co-op game with little thought beyond that! The PS4 remake plays like a dream, but I really don't like it. It completely butchers the original trilogy. It cuts most of the worlds, most of the story; changes the relationship and character development between the protaganists; changes their motivations etc... Moulds some plots from the sequels and even the future trilogy in there... It's just stuffed with shitty memes and seems to appeal to a younger audience than the originals. I might be in the minority here but I'd have preferred the Crash Bandicoot treatment... Just update the controls / graphics while leaving the story intact. Sorry for the essay, go play the original 3!
  3. 1) I posted it in 2 threads, so yeah, "every thread". 2) Fuck me for trying to help then, yeah? 3) I couldn't log into the factions MP at all either, then I downloaded the things individually, did the trick that has been done for a few years I believe of pressing the home button and it worked for me. Unfortunately it might not work for other people, but that's exactly what I did and it worked for me, so I thought I'd be nice and try and help some people out. More than I think you've tried to do; instead you contribute by trying to put someone down who was only trying to help. Well done to you.
  4. I might have just found a way that could work for all the players outside the US that can't get on; myself included until just now when I completed a match and actually got a trophy (a DLC one, too). I'm hoping this works for you all as well. When I purchased the free dlc pack Naughty Dog put out as the servers are closing I purchased it on the PS store on my laptop and downloaded it through my download list on my PS3. That did not work. INSTEAD, what you should do is go on the PS store on your PS3 console itself. Find the add on pack and download it from there. (I didn't background download it, I let it all download and install on it's own, not sure if you need to do this, but might want to just in case.) Next, make sure the game has the latest patch installed and load the game. From here click on the "factions MP" and immediately press the PS button. The "connecting screen" will load in the background... Now, you're gonna want to wait till the connecting screen has fully loaded the progress bar once, then as it seems to be loading it again from the start, press the PS button again. It should say "The Facebook features on the PS3 system are no longer available.". Click circle and it should load you in. A little sidenote, it does take a while on my PS3 to load, 30 seconds to a minute, and on one time I thought it froze as the progress bar didn't "complete" and restart loading again, but I pressed the PS button and it still worked anyway... I know that sounds really confusing, but hopefully it helps anyone to get online who couldn't before! I'm gonna post this message in all of the new forums that mention this problem in hopes of helping as many as possible.

  6. I was a bit disappointed all in all really! I hate it when characters get saved from nowhere... 1) Jon was surrounded by wights on all sides, then next time we cut to him he's somehow cleared a path, then Dany comes from nowhere and saves him! 2) Dany gets thrown off Drogon surrounded by wights, Jorah from nowhere saves her! 3) Sam was on the floor getting fucked, somehow survived! 4) Arya getting thrown to the floor, and Berric appears from nowhere with a flaming sword... (Why were Berric and Clegane even inside the castle as I don't think they saw her trying to hide?) There's probably more too, this was just off the top of my head. Jaime, Brienne, Pod, the Hound, and loads of "extras" were all surrounded on the castle walls, and just like the "red shirts" in Star Trek, you knew the other guys would die and the mains live! Also, at the end getting pushed back into a wall for ages, they could have easily got shanked (let alone crushed) from there! And as much as I love Jaime, he has one hand, he should have died, and Sam, he's useless, no way he would have survived. And how did all the Dothraki just die immediately lol... They can kill thousands of skilled horse riders in seconds but take an hour to not even kill a couple of main characters... Their plot armour is almost embarrassing at this point! Jon is my favourite character (especially in the books), but it's laughable how many times he should have died in the show by now. The whole thing has moved over to a "Hollywood" like affair where the goody always wins and it's predictable and you know your favourite character won't die, so they can appease the fans! Kinda like Darrell in The Walking Dead! The way Arya killed the Night King at the end was also extremely abrupt and felt so rushed. How did she sneak past thousands of wights and about 10 white walkers? Surely they've gotta make something about the mark the Night King left on Bran's arm, maybe that's how he comes back? But with only 3 episodes left, I can't see it happening! And no, I'm not just hating for the sake of it, I love the show; it's probably my second favourite live-action series of all time, behind LOST, but this episode (while still great in parts), just left me with a sour taste in my mouth. The main reason being the plot armour Jon, Dany, Arya, Sansa, Tyrion etc have. Sorry for the essay but yeah, felt good to moan at something!
  7. Not too late at all! Thank you for your greatly detailed response; and I'll definitely take it into consideration when I eventually choose which wheel I get!
  8. Thanks for the input Shary96, I'll look a bit more into the Logitech then!
  9. As the subject said, I'm seriously thinking about getting a steering wheel to finally finish off Gran Turismo 5 and 6; as it's a widely known fact the wheels make it somewhat easier, and more fun. Obviously the 2 big names are Thrustmaster and Logitech. The one I've seen recommended more than most for Thrustmaster is the T300 RS, and for Logitech it's the G29. From what I can tell, the Thrustmaster has the better feedback and is perhaps more "realistic", but the pedals are meant to be awful, it gets hot quick, and the whole thing wears out and even stops working pretty quickly... I don't have as much information on the Logitech, but heard similar stories about it wearing out quickly. So I was wondering if anyone could share their experiences and recommendations of any steering wheel that lives up to its price tag. This is my first post so no idea if I put this in the correct place, so my apologies. Any help will be appreciated.
