  1. >uncommon platinum. Anon, I...
  2. Lmao what's the point, real tawk
  3. Oh at least you weren't banned like I thought the title would suggest Trying to play anything online at any time on my Vita has it throw a fit.
  4. Ah heck I wanted to get the series complete 100% before this had a list! Oh well!
  5. Good job I bought it a while back then hehe. Waited for it to come on PS+ but didn't think it would after a year. Such a shame it's gonna go.
  6. Just putting this here so I have some frame of reference for the future. Currently playing Ratchet 3 on the Vita and I would like to get all the trophies ASAP. I'm on the final planet of the game and have luckily not unlocked anything yet. I've gotten 100 of 101 crystals so I can just go collect the nearest one and then hand it in; I've gotten 4/5 of the 100 Quark tokens. Thankfully those time trials have no trophy attached because I wanted to get those out of the way with ASAP. I was hoping to do it this weekend but I was told last minute that I have work, so I guess not. Have a few more preparations to do today so I'll probably leave it until NEXT weekend. I hope it won't take THAT long seeing as how I have all the planets unlocked but I don't see myself managing to do it all in 6 hours or something. I'd like to get it over with ASAP but we shall see. I'd rather not spend like 9 hours on a screen even if the last part is a rush to Zeldrin/Kerwan to grind bolts where I only have to semi pay attention. 

     

    I normally wouldn't do something like this but I've already plat'd it once so I may as well try and beat my record if I have the one chance to do so. I probably could have sped up Ratchet 2 but I wanted to get the 3000th trophy the same as the 1000th. Completely unintentional that I started playing these when that milestone showed up but it did and I took it. Took an evening of grinding 2250 bolts over and over again but it's done now. Again, I had one chance to do something like that so I took it! 1+2 also had accumulative bolt totals, this one doesn't for some reason. Can't tell if that's a good thing or not. I've managed to save some time by collecting the other Titanium Bolts in the game so I can just unlock the last one after getting 5/5 for the Quark tokens. Didn't do that in the 2nd game cuz I worried it would glitch out or something as I've been unlucky in the past so I just left them all to the end but I could have saved some time if I collected them all prior; so I did that here.

     

    This is to say that the trophies may have an erratic and fast unlock order so I'm just explaining myself in-case anything happens lmao. if I can unlock it without doing the 8 course then getting the Quarktastic challenge done first seems like the best thing to do when it comes to saving time, seeing as how it's 100 rounds but shouldn't take that long anyway. The Impossible Challenge was pretty fast after a relatively stacked weapon list whilst also grinding weaker weapons to get EXP at the same time LOL! Haha. Also just had a thought that it'll be my new fastest Platinum! Lol, by a day. RIP Spyro 3. 😆

     

    Anyway, if anyone did read this; thanks!

      Ah yes. I am a veteran on Ratchet and Clank series. What do you need help?

      Hello fren.

       

      Very nice <3  It's just that I'm aiming to get the trophies ASAP and am basically at the end of the game and ready to do so. Was basically just saying that they may be in a weird/fast order but was explaining why that would be the case. Not like "woah how did you find all sewer crystals in 2 minutes" kinda thing. 

       

      I pretty much just wrote this down to get my thoughts on paper (so to speak)

      All done, hehe

  7. I wouldn't say it's a 7 but the final fights in the Endless Eclipse are pretty unfair; Femto especially. He does forever combos that can track you if you're anywhere in the proximity of him and do massive damage. Playing as anybody other than Guts can get pretty unpleasant as you can get overwhelmed quickly as your attacks dont cover much ground and the block button is useless, as I've found with these kind of games. I haven't played as the Apostles yet, though. Layer 81 onward is pretty boring because it's the same with everyone as it just takes so long; all of the layers leading up to that are so fast. The first bosses you encounter from that point onward can just trap you in a corner and it's lucky if you can escape, it's so infuriating. You kinda wanna level your character up before you go in but then all the EXP goes to waste. I find waiting for your rage bar to autofill when it's on level 4 and then to just do super moves against the bosses works well and the restocking inventory exploit that I made a video about. Certainly helps because then you'd only have 2 consumable health refills for like 10 layers at a time and your health bar in the final layers can just drop. Besides the trophy aspect of it, the game is great and lots of fun. Idk what fans going about Dark Souls inspired game are talking about. You remember killing 100 enemies in a few seconds in Dark Souls? Nah didn't think so lol.
  8. Nice that the Vita is having a sale tho. Dunno why it needs to be last haha, the stores are staying open Or maybe to do with the lack of patches idk.
  9. It's ok fren. I can get it to work now if I just wiggle it a bit. Moving to the right just seems to be an issue. It's like it needs to warm up a bit first. I was thinking about repairs but I wonder how it would even be fixed. Like, give it to a shop and they take it apart or what haha. Void warranty moment. What's the thinking behind the recalibration? Like, you spin it and it just rejigs itself to go back to normal?
  10. Something I read in a YouTube comment that hasn't been mentioned here is pressing R2 to re-center the ship. I've read to hold it down permanently but I don't think that would work; you'd need to tap it every so often to get it to work. This works amazingly well in the 2nd race as it looks like some rings go in a crazy direction but after getting back to the center the path is fairly straight forward. It's amazing how much a change of perspective helps things. If the rings start to get fuzzy just crash and then everything will reset. Had the reticule disappear on me once before the rings got fuzzy. The ship also feels like it speeds up at some points, may be an optical illusion of flying downward but sometimes I'd just lose control and find it hard to get back on track. Seen this mentioned on other forums as well so it may be an actual thing. I wanted to rush to Feltzin to do the ship mission before I got a trophy to see if I could do it. If I could do one then I could do the rest. Despite not knowing about these races I don't remember having much trouble on the PS3 version when I did them for the first time; I don't remember struggling. So I thought that they can't be THAT bad. Something else important to note is just practise of the course itself. I know we'd all like to go for the no ring miss run first try but just doing the course can help. I did a run through of the Feltzin System first and only missed 4. The pressure of not missing a ring will inevitably make us worry more. People may also find this the hardest race because it's the first one where we really have to learn how to use the ship. I found a couple of the turns near the end of the space station to be where I crashed because the camera wasn't centred and flying inside the asteroids I could see giving people trouble. You can't invert the controls but I played these games as a kid so I got used to the up is down thing; it makes sense for flying anyway. Don't even remember an option to change it on the PS3 like people say. Each race is basically only 90 seconds in all so it's not too bad. Hrugis Cloud I found easier than Feltzin System despite probably being there longer. It was just my mistakes of centering the camera while I was moving or being nervous to move the stick too much. The rings that go in a left or right formation are easier and smoother to get to because up and down are much more sensitive. Just take care when going for the ones that are diagonal. Gorn is most definitely the easiest. I did the race once, missed one ring in the process and then did it perfectly the next time. There is a sneaky ring at the start that is just below the starting one that will probably catch you off guard! Just be careful of the rings near the flying objects because they can cause people to get hit by invisible walls but other times just scrape it and be fine. The rings are fairly spread out and a couple may be in weird to go places but keep your eyes peeled. I actually found that fun. I did all three races with an unupgraded ship as well; so just do the tap square to boost thing like others mentioned. You may be able to control a boosted ship on the PS3 version but I doubt you'd be able to control the ship boosted for long on the Vita besides the opening of the race. The glider is too stiff, the ship is too loose and the hoverbike is perfect. What a weird port!
  11. Hope they don’t start pulling stuff like the original Xbox One wanted to by having it always be online LOL.
  12. Yeah but.. why. Every series has to end eventually, especially one like this that had a very specific story to tell.
  13. Lol this made it worse. Game was spinning when it loaded 😂
  14. Well, it IS 2021. Want more content? Buy the DLC pls.
  15. So I bought a case adaptor that comes with L2 and R2 because I'd been trying for about 2 hours to do this and barely being able to find the L2 half the time and when I do I get the trick wrong. Come back to the game and do it first time. I had to share this somewhere lmfao. If anyone still needs help and you're getting the Revolverator trick instead, its that you need to do 4 spins instead of three. It's weird how it calculates it in game but it is what it is.
