      Weird, I had plenty of time to play hide and seek with the fourth one. Did you guys try full or half stabs?

      I don't remember. Whatever worked. Lol. It seemed a bit random how quickly he'd crouch down. If he does so pretty early, it shouldn't be too difficult to take him out. But when he messes around, and doesn't crouch right away.. Not really hard, in my opinion. But annoying to deal with.

      It was random on when he'd do it, but once he did it was just a matter of dealing with the constant shaking. Luckily half stabs were in just the right frequency to get in good damage and not get shaken off the charge.

  3. [SotC] So, turning the wibblywobbly camera off from the options is somehow worse than having it on.

      Now that I'm done with that plat, thank you for those tips. Would have been impossible without them. ❤️

  4. [Shadow of the Colossus] I'm surprised I've yet to break anything with how horrible the third time attack is.

      Did you try Hemiak's method?

       

      "For #3 use the shoulder trick. What it is:

       

      Camp on his right shoulder near the armor Ridge. Hell lean over and try to shake you off his right arm. While he's doing that the rest of his body is practically immobile. 

       

      First sword jump to his arm, not belly. Climb the arm and go straight to his head. He should lean over and try to shake you off his right arm that you're no longer climbing. You should be able to get 2-3 full stabs in the head before it ends. Then finish off the head while he walks. You can also head straight back to the shoulder and force him to initiate the trick again if you can't finish off the head fast enough

       

      Next do the shoulder trick again. While doing it he raises his left arm straight up in the air, allowing you to run straight to the target and begin stabbing at full power.

       

      Once that's dead, do the trick one more time. As soon as he starts,  drop to his waist. You can get 3+ stabs while he's bent over trying to dislodge you from his arm. Then it's just a couple chip shots and he's down. 

       

      With this method I finished with almost a full minute on the clock."

       

      It saved me a lot of time and frustration, I think. I got through all the Hard Time Attacks without too much trouble, though. Was much easier than I expected. One thing I did differently though, was sword jump to the belly, and maybe stab it once before jumping to the arm. I could almost never get the timing right, to make it straight to the arm. :/

      Haven't tried the shoulder method yet. The first two days of trying have mostly boiled down to getting the sword jump down and playing anything else to clam myself down in-between the attempts.

       

      I will say though, I have the exact opposite experience for the sword jump in that I find it more reliable to jump onto the arm parallel to the sword than it is to go towards the belly at an angle.

      I recently started this game up again, after a layoff of about 6 years. I don't think I have the energy for this HTA nonsense. Good luck to you!

      Nicely done! I should buy 2.8, so I can join in on the status making. :awesome:

  6. [Brütal Legend] Oh right. The stage battles are a horrible mistake in an otherwise fine game.

      Not really. It was challenging but I stopped because there was practically no story, really bad graphics, and I felt I wasn't having fun as I didn't enjoy the combat. I actually got a taste of the difficulty as I was playing on hard as well as I completed 11 alfheim portals

    4. Thoazol

      Thoazol

      Actually no. I already got a milestone from Re:CoM, so probably going to go with Resonance of Fate for #30.

  8. [:platinum: 27: Katamari Forever] 2 hours, 40 minutes, 19 cows and 7 bears to roll up one cowbear. That's a lot less than I expected it to take.

  9. 1,999,736 km. 😑

      Your balls just aren't quite up to snuff. 

  10. [Katamari Forever] Since you can roll up the planets you've made before during the 2mil km roll, are they relevant in size to the score you got from that level or do they have a set size regardless of how well you did with those levels?

      I'm getting consistent 1.997-1.998 range and I don't think I'm missing much of the stardust. It might be a matter of just rolling the cosmos in a more efficient way, but since it's so painfully close I can't help but to wonder if redoing some of the levels with better score would be the obvious solution.

    3. Zanreo

      Zanreo

      Yeah, I guess it can't hurt at least

    4. Thoazol

      Thoazol

      I got the 2mil roll, but I have no idea if the planet size was a factor, as I'm pretty sure the important difference were the stars on the King's lap.

  11. Arkham Asylum is quickly becoming the most hated platinum I've yet to attempt.

      it's the perfect freeflow trophy is what made the platinum so annoying, other than that it's actually an easy plat.

       

      one day I managed to 100% the story mode on hard difficulty without even dying once.

       

      arkham city's perfect freeflow 2.0 is even worse, batman is way too slow to even punch someone while the enemies move at top speed, I remember after I plated arkham city I violently removed the disc of my ps3, put it on it's box and throw it so hard back to the shelf then start throwing F bombs at all the people who's worked on the game.

    3. Thoazol

      @yellowwindow7

      I had infinitely more trouble with the combat challenges than the perfect freeflow one. If anything, the freeflow combo was a fairly easy 5k points for the last challenge.

       

      But, it's done now at least.

      Geez, I felt Arkham asylum was tougher than all Batman games besides Batman origins , I am the knight mode, ( haven't played Arkham Knight but will soon), and Arkham city actually was fun.

  12. The feeling when you procrastinate for weeks on whether or not to buy something from the store and out of nowhere it's on sale at -70%.

  13. [Deus Ex: Human Revolution] Can I use Jensen's apartment as a safe place to store excess items I don't need at that moment? Or will they disappear because video game logic?

  14. PlaystationEU on Twitter: Buy a Vita, you can play it in space (maybe). :D

      Nothing new. The Gameboy did that more than 20 years ago :D

  15. Ordered three games on Monday. First one arrived in one day, the other two in two days. Kinda poetic.

  16. So I'm about 3/4ths of the way through Eternal Sonata and just last night realized it's more of an SRPG than something between JRPG and ARPG. I feel like I should have caught onto that earlier.

  17. As someone who has never played an Atelier game; which of the PS3 titles would you recommend as the first one to play?

      Personally, I think Atelier Ayesha is the most accessible. Also, it is the first of the Dusk trilogy so if you like it, you can move forward with that story. The Arland games are significantly stricter with their time management and I found them harder [frustrating] in general as opposed to Ayesha

    3. Xillia

      I started with Totori since I'm missing Rorona and there's a bunch of references. I haven't played the Dusk series yet but I imagine it's the same. So I'd say either Rorona or Ayesha, depends on whether you would rather start with the Arland or Dusk.

    4. Thoazol

      Thoazol

      In that case I'll probably start with Ayesha/Dusk series since the Arland games are available as a Trilogy Pack. Thanks for the advice. :)

  18. Somehow it's really satisfying to have all of the trophy amounts in multiples of 10.
