  1. Thanks, that makes it a little clearer.
  2. Maybe I'm just lucky but flags drop like crazy for me (normally the RNG and I don't spend much quality time together). It took me a while to get the hang of levelling up (not actually activating the field skill for the XP boost, felt pretty dumb when I realized it wasn't an active benefit) but I'm just into the 60s and I went fairly vanilla to start class wise. Hopefully hit 99 and start boosting the better classes soon. Looking at the class to get all the skills on, fighter seems to be the best option as you don't seem to be chasing the support skills since they only have 1 that they learn so you are just trying to farm their attack skills. Am I reading this wrong or do you have to teach them the skills they don't/can't learn by using the Grimoires?
  3. Wow! Color me indifferent....
  4. Finally finished up this past weekend, just too busy to post... 0 - The Unfinished Swan (Vita) (3030), Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception (5830) 1 - Crossing Souls (7171) 2 - LEGO The Incredibles (7762) 3 - Papers, Please (7023), The Bridge (3773) 4 - Cosmic Star Heroine (Vita) (7494) 5 - Steins;Gate (PS3) (3775) 6 - Tales of Monkey Island, Chapter 4: The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood (516) 7 - Tales of Monkey Island, Chapter 5: Rise of the Pirate God (517) 8 - Superdimension Neptune vs Sega Hard Girls (5448) 9 - The Caligula Effect (6109) A bit tighter to the finish than I wanted to be but done all the same. Thanks to our gracious host @eigen-space for another great event. 👍
  5. Yeah. As much as I loved BG and IWD, I still think I'm most excited about Planescape Torment. I've been waiting for this to get the revisit for soooo long which watching enhanced editions being done of everything else. Still the return of Minsc (and Boo, of course) have me really pumped for BG as well. Neverwinter Nights, I must admit, the user content was more interesting than the main story. I loved the way people took the classic p+p modules and turned them into great content that I actually thought felt more natural than the game itself. A lot of stuff in the main game felt shoehorned in to cater more to your choice of henchies rather than the MC but maybe I just saw it differently than some people. Going through the depths in Horde of the Underdark was great though.
  6. Both Baldur's Gate games are supposed to be out on PS4 at the end of the month (unless the release date has changed).
  7. Another one down.. Weeblympics #11: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed A really good kart racer with Sonic, friends and add-ons (including Danica Patrick). Fun game but a lot of work, especially to get the 100% for the Triple Star License. Current Weeblympics status Now to see what I can finish next.
  8. It's been a while but I've got another done... Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed - platinum achieved First trophy - 21 Sep 2014 Last trophy - 3 Sep 2019 Time to complete - 4 yrs, 11 months Let's see if I can get the next one done quicker.
  9. So my views are mixed. I actually liked the story and the combat. I didn't have any issue with the save glitch and I only uploaded my save every few days to be safe. What I didn't like was the grind. Now I've done a lot of grinding in my day, even through the pointless battling in MeiQ and Omega Quintet. This one was actually more annoying and I'll go into why. There are 2 things you will do a lot of in this game while heading for the platinum. The first is building friendships. There are over 500 students in this game to make friends with. You need to do this for a few reasons. First is trophies. The class mystery trophies involve finding a specific student within each class and resolving their traumas. Second, resolving a student's two traumas (superficial and deep) will unlock bonus passive skills, the XP based ones which are critical in helping you level up to 100. Third, many students won't be your friend until you are friends with whoever is connected to them on the grid. As a result you will go through becoming friends with 400+ of the students for getting those bonus skills for XP and solving the class mysteries. This would be fine if you did anything but click to do it. Walk up to them, click them, click through the inane conversation fragment (no dialogue choices), rinse and repeat. 5-6 (depending on your charm level, 6 at the start and it can reduce to 5 later if your charm has raised enough) of these conversations will get your relationship to level 2 (friend) which is needed to unlock those connected to them. You can chat with them 5 times before needing to change areas and find them again. With no real connection to what is being said, this gets really tedious. Second, levelling up. Enemies don't scale with you and XP drops as you level past your enemies. At the start, it's not really noticeable. In fact you might have to grind here and there to keep up with areas. I finished the game fairly easily at level 33. Now you grind to 100. You need to go up for more than just the trophy. Several of the mystery quests will need you in the 60s-80s for the battles with good supporting equips and a few buffing passive skills for your main three characters (normal party is 4 but when clearing some traumas, you bring the student with you and their levels are piddling). With the XP to level up for 60+ being around 140-360k per level up to 100, getting 150-250 xp per fight against normal enemies, you need a better way. This better way is the end game sequence. After beating it the first time, you will save your clear game data. Reloading this to do post game will put you in a hub at the time just before the end game battle. Beating the end game (3 fights) with XP boosts (passive and a skill) will net you 50-60k once you get it down to winning each fight first turn, 20-30k if you don't. Doesn't sound bad. The problem is this sequence takes about 15 minutes. You load up, move to the end area, run through the area to the boss area, skip a bunch of story which speeds the dialogue but not the animations, do 1 fight, skip more, 2 more fights, skip more, save clear data. Rinse and repeat. About 2-3 minutes of combat in that 15 (I got it down to about 13 on a smooth run) and you are doing this a few hundred times in your quest for level 100. It took me about 50+ hrs of this to level up with 8-10 hrs of that actually being combat. It's a truly horrible experience. I liked the game but the end grind was just terrible and really took away from the experience. Anyone going into this for the plat should really know what they are letting themselves in for.

Completed games list
  11. I did this with a few titles as well. I had bought Steins;Gate on Vita and played it a few years ago. Played it again this time on PS3 as I needed a 5 and had this free from PS+ in my backlog. Skipped some but went through parts I had really liked fully again. It really is a fantastic title. I actually went through Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters 3 times. I bought it for Vita then got PS Now and went through the PS3 version again a while later. Then the expanded Special Gigs came out for PS4 with some extra content on PS Now, so I went through it all again. Call me crazy, the game really worked for me.
  12. I agree, a game should only count once during the event regardless of stacks and stacks should not impact on beast mode. I hadn't planned on opening a can of worms with this. I had just chosen it as a 5 in Gaming by the Numbers and noticed the RPG designation later on.
  13. Definitely. It's hands-down the best VN I've played/read. Nothing else has even been close.
  14. Couple of fast ones done. Got to try and stay ahead of a Dragon... Steins;Gate (PS3) 100 + 67 (12+32+23) - 51.57 = 115.43 points Asdivine Hearts 75 + 20 (10+10) - 12.46 = 82.54 points Gotta keep working if he's dropping points like that on me. Still have one game left to finish for Gaming by the Numbers but I don't think it's going to be an RPG...
  15. One more down, one left to go... 0 - The Unfinished Swan (Vita) (3030), Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception (5830) 1 - Crossing Souls (7171) 2 - 3 - Papers, Please (7023), The Bridge (3773) 4 - Cosmic Star Heroine (Vita) (7494) 5 - Steins;Gate (PS3) (3775) 6 - Tales of Monkey Island, Chapter 4: The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood (516) 7 - Tales of Monkey Island, Chapter 5: Rise of the Pirate God (517) 8 - Superdimension Neptune vs Sega Hard Girls (5448) 9 - The Caligula Effect (6109) Still not sure about what I'm playing. I'll dig through my backlog and find something...
