  1. You can see if the holeshot registered as soon as you cross the holeshot line. Just go into the profile menu and see if it counted or not. If it didn't count despite crossing the line in first, it means that particular track is bugged and it won't count no matter what you do. So just try it on a different track.
  2. Can also confirm that spelling FARTS in the unpatched Vita version still makes the trophy pop.
  3. I can confirm this works. I'm also from EU. However, I created the online game on Vita and joined it on PS4. Just make sure you pick quick match when you join. Don't pick the other option which gives you a list of available sessions, because that won't allow you to join it.
  4. Yeah Yakuza 4 is definitely one of the easier Yakuza platinums because of the lack of a 100% completion trophy. Still a challenging platinum which requires a lot of patience. You also have to play through the story three times. Once on normal, once on hard to unlock extra hard difficulty and then once on extra hard.
  5. Welp I guess I'll play some Left Behind while they figure out their servers.
  6. Just did the test and I've got 125 down, 10 up on NAT 2 (these are normal numbers for me). Still no access.
  7. Mine didn't crash but I can't access Factions anymore. It says "error downloading config file". It was fine an hour ago, switched the game off for a little bit and now I'm unable to access Factions. Anyone know what to do?
  8. It's definitely hard, some levels are gonna have to be replayed until you figure out the best strategy, but it isn't as hard as CoD veteran difficulty imo. You've just gotta be smart about when you pick up health and backtrack sometimes to pick up health you left behind. Take every level slowly, don't rush it. You don't want to be overrun by a group of enemies.
  9. Yeah, you don't have to beat Jane. I made the same mistake of beating Jane and then realizing I didn't even need to beat her for the completion. The one before Jane, I think Raxel, is the one you have to beat last for the completion iirc. Again, I urge everyone to check that Fighting Vipers character list before attempting to win against all of them. There's no way otherwise to know when you can quit.
  10. So I finished Fighting Vipers yesterday, even won one extra battle because I didn't realize I didn't have to do that extra battle. What I did was use the roller skater girl and spammed the up+right+circle attack, the one where she jumps up in the air and immediately kicks in front as well. This usually kicks the enemy straight into the wall, doing a pretty big chunk of damage. Unfortunately this isn't a cheese way to win this, you're still gonna need a lot of luck, especially for the last guy, but that's how I ended up doing it. I didn't know what else could have worked. When you do decide to do this, make sure you check the list of enemies you have to beat beforehand so that you don't accidentally keep going after finishing the final enemy.
  11. I tried this with a few different button presses (not just L2), but she doesn't do the grab attack in midair, instead some sort of ground pound attack which sucks. The roller skate girl is the first one on the left, right? Just making sure.
  12. There's a decent amount of luck involved too though. Even though I got to 51 wins until I lost, there's no way I could do that again. Just keep trying, there's no other way to do that strategy.
  13. Has anyone tried the Fighting Vipers minigame yet? Struggling way more with that than Puyo Puyo. I can't get past the third battle. Any tips would be great!
  14. I'll just copy my reply from the trophy thoughts thread: What I do is I first make sure the three columns on the right are completely filled. While filling up the third column, I also pay attention to which color is at the bottom of the third column and I make sure I drop at least one more, ideally two more, of the same color at the bottom of the fourth column by rotating so that only the color I need falls into that fourth column. That makes it a bit easier to eventually get all 4 of the same color at the bottom. Then when they do pop, it often gives a chain reaction up above for massive damage. If all three columns on the right are filled and I get some junk colors I don't need, I just pile them up on the leftmost column. Every so often I make sure to clean that part up when I see the opportunity, because I do need that part to be somewhat clean just in case I'm in a bit of a pinch. Also, I always pick the fish character because he can really screw you over if you battle him sometimes. Got to 51 wins with this method.
  15. Considering the shogi can (seemingly) be cheesed, this should be one of the easier Yakuza-like platinums for me. I'm 15 hours into the game. I've already blasted through the Puyo Puyo Tetris requirements, even though I'm really not that good at Tetris. You've just gotta discover a good strategy. Heck I even got to 51 wins in a row when I lost. What I do is I first make sure the three columns on the right are completely filled. While filling up the third column, I also pay attention to which color is at the bottom of the third column and I make sure I drop at least one more, ideally two more, of the same color at the bottom of the fourth column by rotating so that only the color I need falls into that fourth column. That makes it a bit easier to eventually get all 4 of the same color at the bottom. Then when they do pop, it often gives a chain reaction up above for massive damage. If all three columns on the right are filled and I get some junk colors I don't need, I just pile them up on the leftmost column. Every so often I make sure to clean that part up when I see the opportunity, because I do need that part to be somewhat clean just in case I'm in a bit of a pinch. Also, I always pick the fish character because he can really screw you over if you battle him sometimes. Anyway, mahjong is no issue for me because Yakuza has actually taught me how to play it. I love it now! I haven't really noticed anything particularly difficult so far.
  16. I can confirm it also worked for me. 1. Platinumed main game 2. Got all Clash in the Clouds trophies except for Blue Ribbon Champ 3. 100%'ed Burial at Sea episode 1 and 2 4. Blue Ribbon Champ popped when I got my last trophy in Burial at Sea episode 2
  17. Knack, just for the memes. I actually own that game thanks to PS+, but I just don't care enough to play it.
  18. I just grinded like a madman at the end of NG+. I think maybe 6 or 7 hours of grinding in total, what a pain!
  19. I feel it's very similar to Rainbow Moon. Too similar in fact. I'm glad I hadn't played RM right before the release of Rainbow Skies, because I'm pretty sure I would have been fatigued pretty early into RS. I'm 15 hours into it so far and I'm as hooked as I remember being when I played RM years ago. The reason why so few have platinumed it, is because the trophies take a looong time to get. This is probably a 100+ hours platinum.
  20. Yakuza 4 is my first Yakuza game, but I would say 3 is miles better. The gameplay feels exactly the same except that in 4 you play as four characters instead of one. 3 has a better story overall. 3 also has an easier/faster platinum imo. Yakuza 4 is kinda annoying because you have to beat the story three times for all of the difficulty-related trophies.
  21. First one took me two tries, second one took me four tries, haven't done the third one yet so idk. Sure, the controls are hyper sensitive, which is a pain because you do have to be precise, but it's not anywhere as hard as some of you make it out to be imo. Even though I've played the PS2 and PS3 version of the game to death, I don't think that experience helps because the controls are so much harder to master on Vita. NekoSlash made a great point, it's best to focus on the green reticle instead of the ship. Aim where you want to go, ignore the ship.
  22. I became a fan from the moment when I played the demo of the first game in 2002. Played all of Insomniac's R&C games, apart from All 4 One and Full Frontal Assault, even played Size Matters, and I've gotta say I highly enjoyed the PS4 game. I consider A Crack in Time to be the best game. It's the most ambitious one and has the best story imo. For me the first game is the worst Insomniac has made (not counting the aformentioned spin-offs), mostly because of how unlikeable Ratchet is and the controls are absolutely horrible. A lot of people say the first game is the hardest, which I can see why, but for me it's only hard because the controls are too floaty and because you can't strafe. The PS4 game is a modern take on the original game. It improves upon the controls, making the game easier in the process, while it also adds great gameplay elements added in later games as well like strafing and leveling. The weapons are a "greatest hits" of the entire series, which makes them better than the original's for me. My biggest gripe with the new game is the story, specifically the way it's told. Unlike some, I actually like that Ratchet isn't a douche like in the original. I hate original Ratchet. What I don't like about this new story is that everything is told through the Qwark filter. I can't take anything seriously because this is Qwark's version of the story. This is also why I like the movie's version of the story 10 times more. An unfiltered version of the story. [SPOILERS START HERE] Simply compare the movie's ending with the game's ending. The movie's ending is pure perfection, seeing Dr. Nefarious turn into a robot, perfectly setting up the sequel with him as the main villain. The game ends with the dude who Qwark shared his time with in prison seemingly becoming the main villain for the next game. What the...? This is also what I mean with the Qwark filter. In his version of the story, he doesn't want to reveal that Dr. Nefarious is still alive and will be the main villain again. This hurts the story badly. [SPOILERS END HERE] For me the movie's story is far better than the game's story. But this is the only thing I really don't like about the game. The rest is great! I want them to do a sequel to this game, but with the movie's story in mind, not the game's story.
  23. Didn't watch it in the cinema, but bought the Blu-Ray of it and I actually really liked it. It was always a childhood dream of mine to get a Ratchet & Clank movie and for me this movie delivered. I like the movie's story far more than the game's story, especially when you compare the endings. I like to call the movie Ratchet & Clank: A New Hope, obviously a reference to Star Wars. Solid 7/10 for the movie.
  24. Hey everyone! I just won the race "Survival of the Fastest", but I didn't get the Done and Done trophy. I did the race again, won again, but still didn't get the trophy. I've 3-starred every race in the tournament and I've even won all of the off road elite challenges. So why didn't I get this trophy? I've got all other offline trophies. Is Done and Done glitched? Does anyone know how to fix this? Am I maybe missing something?
