  1. This is under consideration This is under consideration but needs more information, originally, these were linked (hence the same banner for both games) but the link was removed in my intial series sweep until I could confirm information. This has been updated. 想い出にかわる君~メモリーズオフ~will not be put in at Stage 5. This release is a remastering of the 2002 PSP release and so per our series rules, is placed in Stage 1. This is expected to change in mid march also as there is a メモリーズオフ collection that is releasing in two parts that should contain all 7 games of the mainline franchise. It is unknown at this time however if they will be individual lists such as this one or if it will be a compilation list. Being that this list was pulled early, we believe that there is plausibility in that each of the games will have its own list. This will mean that there will be a shift in stage orders so as to respect the original release orders of those games. It has yet to be seen however until that collection is released. ひぐらしのなく頃に奉 it was decided that this game and its pair would not be a series for the same reason that Fallen Legion is not a series, despite having a slightly different list and scenario's present. There is not enough data to support the claim at present that the PS4 release is NA exclusive. Typically, we do not tag a region until there is sufficient information to make the call. However, because it is stated that the vita is a physical exclusive, meaning that it has no digital release, it should be given the physical tag over a regional tag. While rarely used, the physical tag is meant for lists that are physical exclusives, while the regional tags are meant to denote the specific region of the digital store of the PSN network the game list is from. Regional tags can refer to physical releases, but, if it is available in both formats, the digital store tag is more relevant. The team would need to discuss this item. Being that the 'edition' has been omitted in other items in that series, to add it to one would mean to need to add it to all, there should be some followup later in this and other pending items quoted here.
  2. It is a byproduct of inconsistent linking over years since before any of us came onto the team. There is a lot of data that requires correction within the database so to make it uniform site wide. We also need Sly to work with us on some specific issues that cannot be discussed openly that take time to resolve. All the same, we of the team do appreciate the input others make here in the thread, even if sometimes the decisions of the team are met unfavorably. The ultimate goal is to have a uniform ruleset applied to all items as has been an ongoing and lengthy process with series. I can assure you that he isn't the only one making updates, the vast majority of updated information is not mentioned here. Grave's work is of course appreciated, as is DE12EK's, we are a team and work closely to keep up to date
  3. Are you looking forward to the new Member Interview format?

    1. Xenoblast91


      Yes! I've been waiting to be an interviewee the last months LOL. Anyway, I should wait a bit yet xD

  4. Without a shadow of a doubt, this is the funnest Crash platformer of the PS4 bunch in my opinion. I do casual speedruns and some of the tech is bonkers silly lol Above are some the neater skips speedrunners use, I get Nitro skip maybe half the time
  5. No you have not, there are some certain complications that are causing a delay
  6. Good evening all and welcome to the Member Interviews Signups! Unfortunately I do not have access to the already existing list, and so to help alleviate that issue for future host I've elected to have this thread posted so that the current list is viewable to everyone.

The Member Interviews are an ongoing community project in which a random member of the participating community is selected to be interviewed once every month. The interview process is quite simple, first we select a member randomly from the Candidates list above, and then allow the community to ask that member questions for one week. After that week, the chosen candidate will have two-three weeks to answer a set of stock questions and any additional questions asked by the community. Once answered, the Interview is posted up for the community to read, on the first Friday/Saturday of the month. We will then take a one week break before then starting anew.
  7. Welcome PSNP! Welcome back to Member Interview and the final interview of the old format. We open the year with a fresh new interview, early, from our very own @Rally-Vincent---! Rally-Vincent--- Stock Questions How did you come up with your PSN name? Rally Vincent is a character from the anime „Gunsmith Cats“. Based on the manga, a three-episode OVA was produced. It was one of the first animes not targeted at children I saw. Rally Vincent became and has been ever since my favorite anime character, and I simply used that name as my internet handle and video game name. She is also my Avatar. If I were ever to get a tattoo – which I won’t, thank you very much – it would be that. What games convinced you get your PlayStation 3, Playstation Vita, and PlayStation 4? I had the PSOne and the PS2, and both consoles met my gaming needs. There were always games on the Playstation systems that I wanted to play. It was only natural to get the PS3 and PS4. It’s not specific games that tipped the scale, though. What are your top 5 game series and why? Final Fantasy All in all, even with the latest let down, still a great game series. I played FF VII and was riveted by the concept. Immediately got FF VIII when it released, and it’s my favorite main FF game. Played IX, X and X-2 with great pleasure. XII was so-so, XIII the worst oft hem all. XIII-2 and XIII-3 were so-so, as was XV. Yet, countless hours of exploring fascinating worlds for a good cause with a group of lovable characters. Great stuff. Suikoden A classic JRPG series with a cool lore and 108 characters to recruit to your army, a castle to expand and even army battles (nowadays rudimentary, but back then something new within a JRPG) Mass Effect I don’t think I need to say much about ME. It’s the story and most of all female Commander Shepard. What a great heroine, especially since she hast he same lines as male Shepard. Uncharted Classic adventure movies as games. There were lots of them when I was younger, and there were less SFX and CG. Indiana Jones, Quatermain. Disgaea Disgaea games are tactical turn based combat games, one of my favorite genres. They have an overarching story, injected with humor. The first Disgaea (recently remastered), has a hilarious cast. Laharl, Etna and Flonne are some of my favorite characters. If you don’t mind the grind, give it a try. What are your top 5 games and why? Final Fantasy Tactics My favorite game ever. I played right after FF VII and VIII, and I was stricken. I love tactical turn based combat, so it has all the elements of a Final Fantasy game – the soundtrack is so good - plus the combat and the awesome job system. Add nostalgia into the mix, and there you have it. F-19 Stealth Fighter I really enjoyed playing military Flight simulators. My favorite was F-19 Stealth Fighter (there is a slight irony in that the F-117 Night Hawk was chosen over the F19 in the competition between both prototypes). If you take a look at the video. Just remember that the graphics were like that. The gameplay was good, and the mission variety was wide enough to have me play it over and over. Railroad Tycoon Another game I played endlessly. You manage a railroad by building tracks and stations and deciding which loads trains transport. There are several resources, so if you transport coal and iron to a steel mill, you can then transport steel from there to a car factory and so. Up to three AI controlled competitors were in the game as well. Witcher 3 At least one newer game should be in the top 5. Most people will know the Witcher 3, so there isn’t much to explain. What I digged was the interconnection of quests. While I was on the way to one quest, encountered two more, I enjoyed the game so much that I even bought both DLC. Crusader Kings II A simulation. You play the head of a noble family in the middle ages and try to get your dynasty to prosper. The first game that made me install steam (you had to activate it via steam, but could play without steam). I don’t like services like steam, but I wanted to play that game (due to playing XCOM 2 modded on PC, I also broke the no steam rule even further). Several mods made the game even better; my favorite mod was HIP (Historical Immersion Project). Which unreleased game(s) are you looking forward to the most and why? I rarely sit on hot coals when it comes to unreleased games. Nowadays, they are introduced years ahead, and you never know what the final thing is going to be like (Cyberpunk 2077 much? I have the game, didn’t have space to install it yet, as I am working towards a PSNP milestone). I usually bookmark gamest hat sound interesting and then wait until the reviews fly in. I avoid articles and trailers not to be spoilered, and that doesn’t lend itself to hypes. Sometimes there are exceptions, so my answer is „Disco Elyseum“. It’s a cRPG, probably very text-heavy. I like story-driven games, I like RPGs, and especially RPGs that give you as much freedom to do things your way as possible. I expect much from the game. Do you have any other hobbies outside of gaming? I used to play football (if you are American: soccer) with passion, but due to real life and time restraints, I gave that up years ago. Same for building model airplane kits and painting miniature figures (1:72 scale). I took up collecting anime figures (again), you could call that a hobby, I guess. I also try to grow plants from seeds – figs, kiwi, lemons, tangerines, pomegranates, oranges. Is that a hobby or a pastime? I like to read books, though, and I’ll do that everywhere and anytime where I find the time for it. Seems I am more of an indoor type. Top 5 TV shows, Movies, and/or anime, why, and would you recommend them to people? Five is such a small number. A couple of years ago I listed cartoon shows (excluding anime) which I saw over my life, and it was a very long list, even though I didn’t watch that much TV. It’s just that over time, you watch so much. Same for TV shows and movies. Let me try anyway. Movies Goodfellas One of the best Gangster movies, if not the best. It’s less glorifying and gives a more realistic sight of the Italian mob. If you are interested in gangster movies, the film is a must. Also, great start: "As far back as I remember, I always wanted to be a gangster!" Aliens – Director’s Cut While Alien (the first movie) ist he better horror movie, somehow I like Aliens (the second film) a tad more. Can’t really explain it. Imagine Me & You It’s a romcom (if lesbians are not your thing, stay away). I have a weak spot for romcoms. Joint Security Area A South Korean Film. On the surface, a film about an incident in the demilitarized Zone between the two Koreas. Underneath, it’s about human relations. I think it’s worth to watch it. Das Boot Probably well known? A WW II film about the war at sea, from the viewpoint of the crew of a German submarine. Try to watch the one of the director’s cuts. Don't mistake it for the 2020 series, which a friend told me is awful. The original was planned as a TV series as well as a movie, so yeah - it can be a bit confusing which to watch. TV Shows Blackadder A British Comedy series. Each season takes place in a different time period of English/British history (the first season is the weakest – pull through or start with the second season). Do you know Mr. Bean? Personally, I like Rowan Atkinson in his Role as Edmund Blackadder better. It’s funny as hell. Well-known people are featured in some seasons, like Hugh Laurie (later known as Dr. House) or Steven Fry. Friends Everybody knows Friends. It’s funny. Very funny. That should be reason enough. The Big Bang Theory Same, but even better if you are a bit of a nerd. X-Files (Seasons 1 - 6) Ah, the X-Files. A monster oft he week show with an overarching storyline regarding Aliens. I loved the monster episodes, hated the Arc. Some really creepy stuff happened. Would I Lie To You (WILTY) It’s a British comedy panel show. A panelist reads a claim from the card, and the other team has to find out if it’s true or a lie. It gets hilarious at times. Anime/Cartoons Teenage Robot XJ-9 (or Jenny, as she prefers to be called), is a teenage robot. Tasked with the defense of earth against all kinds of threats, while trying to live a life like a normal teenager can be quite challenging. A humourous, harmless fun. Azumanga Daioh A slice of life high school setting anime. Sounds boring to you? It’s also quite funny. If you need something light that improves your mood, give it a go. Girls und Panzer Another high school anime. Apparently, high schools compete in all kinds of sports – here it is the art of „Tankery“, mock battles between high schools with real tanks (and fake ammo). It’s silly, and I like it. The secret to enjoying anime is to accept the premise - and to watch it subbed, not dubbed. Puella Magi Madoka Magica Do you know animes that fall into the Magical Girl genre? Sailor Moon is a good example. It’s a monster oft he week type, and magical girls transform and fight for love, justice and all good things. It’s a feel good thing where good always prevails, and you eat ice cream together afterwards. You grow out of it quickly. PMMM is a magical girl anime – but it’s not what it appears to be like. Don’t want to spoil anything. If you know the magical girl mechanics, but want to see how to give it a different spin, that’s your next thing to watch. Genshiken A show about guys with… indoor hobbies. I can relate to a degree. For more info on my anime tastets, click here. Top 5 favorite music bands/group/artists/composers/ost? Rilo Kiley / Jenny Lewis (Indie-Rock/Folk) Let me say first that I have an odd way to listen to music (I think). I usually regard the singer’s voice as an instrument, so I usually don’t give much thought to the lyrics. It‘s easier to let lyrics pass through in a foreign language. Lyrics come later, the more often I listen to a song I like. Having said that, with Rilo Kiley (and their singer Jenny Lewis going solo later), it was different. I noticed the lyrics quickly. The songs are a great package. Rilo Kiley started out as Indie (Rock and to a degree Folk), with success shifting a bit more towards mainstream. There are great songs. Definitely my favorite. I even went out to see two concerts, get autographs and have two awkward pictures with Jenny Lewis. Within Temptation (Metal/Hard Rock) Probably known to quite a few people. A unique voice with a metal band (don’t know which sub-type genre). An excellent example for a voice as an instrument. Martina McBride (New Country) I like her earlier albums, some of my first experiences with New Country, another one of my preferred genres. 80s music Yes, that’s right. That’s the music of my childhood, and I love it. Pop and Rock paired with Nostalgia. There’s nothing better. Gloria Estefan (80s and Latin) Her most famous times were in the Eighties, she was a world-wide known pop star. Still mentioning her separate from the 80s above, for she also made Latin music, singing in Spanish. That’s something you don’t get to hear over here commonly, I only got to know it because I bought all her albums back then. Just A Minute A sixth entry in a top five. Blame it on inflation. Just a minute, isn’t a band – it is a BBC radio show that ran interrupted from 1968 for over fifty years. It’s a simple concept: A panelist is to talk about a subject for sixty seconds without hesitation, repetition or deviation. If he commits one oft he crimes, other panelists can challenge and, if correct, take over the subject and get a point. I listened to it on Sunday nights (Dr Demento from 10 p.m. to midnight, then from midnight to 00:30 a.nm. Just a minute), and later in life, I got my hands on recordings of earlier episodes ( I have 670, and it's far from all of them). If you are into British humour (see, I spelled it the British way) and don’t know it yet, I recommend it. This site links to a stream here. Your favorite platinum and why? That took a while. I play games for fun, which means that every game I platinumed was fun to me – some more, some less. My favorite platinum, though, has to be the first Mass Effect. Somehow, I didn’t play Mass Effect when it released, and I discovered it very late into the PS4 generation. I really enjoyed the trilogy, and having the chance to experience something like this so late in my gaming life made it special. Your least favorite platinum and why? Battle of the Bulge. A „strategy“ game that hardly had any strategy in it and felt like a mobile game. Have you ever been tempted to switch over to the Xbox/Nintendo/PC gaming ecosystems? To switch over? No. To play on a PS as well as on another console or PC? Sure. Why restrain oneself to one or the other? I don‘t understand „My system is better than yours“. Play what game on whatever platform you want, systems aren’t mutually exclusive. I play games on PC as well as on PS4. I prefer consoles, but some games are not for console, e,g, strategy games. I don’t have an Xbox or Switch because I don’t have enough time to play all the PS games I already have, so there is no need to get other consoles. I would if I wanted to. If you could have one game from any gaming generation be remade or re-released, which one would it be and why? I’ll choose „remade“ over rereleased – The game is Wing Commander. I played Wing Commander on the Amiga 500. A flight simulator in Space. Earth's systems are invaded by the Kilrathi, a Warrior Cat race. The gameplay was a novelty as it's one of the first games that had optional padding for missions. Depending on if you won or lost systems, you would transfer to different systems. Between missions, you would hang out in the Space Carrier’s bar with your fellow pilots. I’d like to see how it would like with today’s possibilities. How far are you willing to go for a platinum? I’m probably in the middle of people here. I’ll go the length, I’ll do the grind, I’ll take on the challenge if I want the Plat. I’ll do it the old fashioned way, though – no turbo controllers, no rubberbanding, no online boosting (just to be clear, boosting is okay, I just don’t want to have the hassle with with it). As far as I will go: The Platinum for Space Hulk required to kill 40.000 enemies. Even with shoot–undo-shoot-undo–method, it was a mind-numbing process. I only completed it because I didn’t want the time already invested go to waste. I enjoyed the rest of the game, though, that’s why it isn’t the worst platinum. What feature (besides backwards compatibility) do you think the next console generation should have? A disc drive. I will not buy a console that can’t use physical media. Backwards compatibility isn’t important for me. I still have all my consoles, I’ll just use them if necessary, but physical games is where I draw the line. What is your favorite thing about PSNP? In real life, noneof my friends & family is a gamer. They occasionally might play a game, but I am the odd one out. PSNP is a great place to talk about games, as others know what gaming is about. People are offering help or advice when it comes to gaming or choosing games. PSNP also is a great resource to find new games that interest me. What is your least favorite thing about PSNP? I really don’t like that some people just can’t let others do their thing and somehow feel the need to put them down. There isn’t the one „right“ way to play video games. Other people like other things. A little more acceptance and courtesy would be nice. When I started to play video games, they were widely regarded as a waste of time. „Do something useful instead“. I would have been thrilled to find others to talk about games like you talk about hobbies you care about. There weren’t enough people to divide into cliques. I take it as a sign that video games are so acknowledged today that you don’t need to close ranks against „the outside“ any more. A pity nonetheless. Is there anyone in the PSNP Community you would like to give a shout out too and if so why? @Briste and @Cassylvania build a nice hub with their trophy checklists. It’s a civil place where I like to hang out, and it made me post more often at PSNP. @Sergen was one of the first members that stood out to me, especially due to his status posts. We aren’t conversing or something like that, I just like to read what he writes. Seems like a decent guy to me. And then there is @Spaz. He’s passionate. Even if I don’t share many of his opinions, I like that he cares about the things he writes about here. Community Questions What book or books would you recommend for gamers or trophy hunters on this site? I am not sure if I got that right? Do I know books that would relate somehow to video gaming or trophy hunting, to recommend especially for gamers/trophy hunters? I don’t. If the question means what books I would recommend to read in general, it’s the three Bernard Samson trilogies by Len Deighton: Berlin Game / Mexico Set / London Match Spy Hook / Spy Line / Spy Sinker Faith / Hope /Charity My favorite books when it comes to Espionage. I recommend it for the subject as well as the lively language the author uses. It’s first person, set in the Eighties (so Cold War) from the viewpoint of Bernard Samson, an officer in the SIS, and his complicated life. It’s as much about his personal life as is about his line of work, something I usually am not so interested in, but those books are different. Fiction or Nonfiction? Both. If I want to entertain myself, I read fiction. If I want to learn something, I read textbooks, most often about history. If you could have any video game item in real life, what would it be and why? A duplication item. It’s not even about duping money or something – it’d be great if you could duplicate little things when shops are closed. Your last slice of bread because you forgot to buy it? Problem solved. Knack 2 when? Probably never. Unless you have gun – in which case, soon. You got any Internet Rabbit Holes/interesting things you found that you wanna share? (your favorite interesting thing in general you found online) Sorry, I don’t think I know such a thing. I visit a couple of hubs like PSNP is for games, only for anime series or figures. Other than that, I enjoy the creativity that pours into funny images. I’d wither without internet access, but I actually don’t do much with it other than maintaining my hobbies. I can share my favorite let’s player: It’s Christopher Odd. Seems to be a decent guy, (and his voice I can listen to over a couple of hours, really important when you want to listen to someone playing a sixty hour game). He likes to explore thoroughly, and he’s a really good tactician. His XCOM plays are my favorites. What is the weirdest case you've ever been involved in? Not my case, but one of my boss‘: during a divorce case, both spouses fought - at court - over custody of the family cat. My field is Inheritance law. There was one case where testator thought by erecting a will his estate would already pass on to his heirs (which would only happen after he dies, naturally). So after he wrote his will, he hid it in a hollow leg of a pinball machine where it was found a couple of months after his death only by chance. Have you ever used the Chewbacca defense? As much fun as that would be, there isn’t really room for irrational behavior. As a lawyer, you represent someone else‘s interests, not your own, so not only would it be unprofessional, you’d also endanger your client’s rights or financial position. Not to mention that you are liable if you make mistakes or don’t do your work like you are supposed to. You also don’t want negative word to spread about you. It’s a boring answer, but you have responsibilities. Clients rely on you and pay you - most of them, anyway. Disclaimer: I never contested an election result. If a zombie apocalypse actually happened, what one celebrity would you hope to find as a zombie (and then put down for good)? This reminds me of a scene in the remake of Dawn of the Dead. The group manages to barricade themselve in a shopping mall. Sieged by hordes of zombies, they play a game with a gun shop keeper on the other side of the road. They pick a zombie from the crowd that looks like a celebrity, and the other side has to shoot the right one. I think I’d pick Bill Murray – not because I hold a grudge against him or something, but more because I think he’d be okay with it should he become a zombie. And I could shout: „Bill fucking Murray!“ like in the movie Zombieland. When the Member Interview Project was approved to come back, what were you thoughts? Were you surprised you had been selected? What do you think could improve the project? I always read the interviews with interest, both for the answers and the questions. I think it’s great that you get to know some people even though you might never had contact with them before. Yes, it took me by surprise. I didn’t know it’s not first come, first serve, but randomized. Improvements? Free burgers to download. I don’t know – maybe if some people who usually hold back would throw their hat in the ring as interviewees. Those people sometimes have the best things things to tell. What's your favorite meme? I’m not much of a meme guy (I even pronounce the word wrong: French, like même); I like puns better. If I have to choose one, which I have to, probably the Russian Reversal. In Soviet Russia, wind breaks you. What is your favorite anime/manga franchise? Anime: As a franchise, I’d say the Monogatari series. That’s quite a unique combination of art style and storyline. Manga: Funnily, I don’t read mangas with the two exceptions: Gunsmith cats and Genshiken. I prefer Anime, because voices, sounds and music really complement the anime art style. It has so much more effect if there is a „doing“ with Anime surprised eyes. What is your favorite anime series? Most animes are short – one to three seasons. I guess 2+ qualifies as a series. So let’s say: Non Non Biyori (watch it and here and here). It’s a slice of life anime in the countryside, nothing much happens. It’s a feel-good thing if you have some spare time. What anime studio is your favorite? I never look up which studio did what anime. Either I like the anime, or I don’t. The only studio I know is Ghibli. Who is your favorite mangaka (manga artist)? I don’t read enough manga to have one. If you could create your own anime/manga franchise, what kind of world would you craft, what kinds of characters would you create, and what kind of genre would you make it? A Sci-Fi setting, where Aliens invade the earth. The characters would be part of the Earth Defense Force. It would be a comedy with serious parts. Mix a little drama in. For once, though, more characters would be adults, so no 16 year old battleship captain and 18 year old commander in chief. Most importantly, who is your top waifu of choice? If you have more than one, please list your Top 5! Apart from Rally Vincent, Kirino Chiba from Bamboo Blade. What's the worst game you've played and why is it Space Hulk? Space Hulk as a game actually isn’t bad – only the platinum was awful. It’s average, but it has a rustic charm. It reminded me of a physical board game I have and played with my school friends. It was called Space Marines, I think, There were up to three five man platoons of space marines entering a hulk represented by the board, and one player played the evil guys. They were represented as blips and turned over when in sight. it weren’t all genestealers, though, they mixed Goblins and Orcs in, and the main enemy was a Mech I would class as a Sectopod like in XCOM 2. The worst game – technically - must be a game I put down after a first go. Naturally, I don’t remember. One I remember was Terminator 2 – Judgement Day on Amiga. How far did you watch it? Since you've been gaming since the beginning....which era or system was your favorite? In regards, to gaming, it’s the olden times. When you pick up gaming, every game you play has something new to discover. It keeps gaming fresh and exciting. Later, what keeps me hooked isn’t game mechanics – it’s not often that there are really new things -, its stories and characters. So I’d say PSOne is about the era, because technology made a leap compared to the Amiga (didn’t have a pc back then). New things to discover that were technologically impossible before. Favorite video game character and why? Etna from Disgaea. High-ranking Demon, Master of the Prinnies and (Somewhat) loyal vassal of the Overlord, Prince Laharl, Etna does the episode previews of two Disgaea games, where she is part oft he main cast (Disgaea: Hour of Darkness and Disgaea D2 - only found a video for D2). Sorry, femShep, as badass as you are, you are only number 2. How many Oreos do you think you could eat in two minutes without throwing up? If eaten correctly by disassembling them, eating the filling first and then the cookie plates, four. I would time out. If a giant bird would regurgitate them because he is mistaking me for one of his little birdlings – one. What is the most time you've lost in a game by forgetting to save? About an hour worth of playtime, twenty five years ago. This was when there was no free saving or autosaving, only fixed save points. I skipped a save to see what was ahead first – it was a boss who killed me. That was a lesson. I always save manual whenever I can. If I save and leave the room to get a drink and on return don’t remember if I already saved, I’ll save (again), just in case. I save before and after boss fights, before talking to NPCs, before allotting skill points. I even save before I close the game – weird, eh? What are some of your favorite games on PS1/PS2? PSOne: I already mentioned Final Fantasy games, Railroad Tycoon and Suikoden and Disgaea. Brigandine: The Legend of Forsena was neat. The gameplay was simple and battles can be broken easily, but it had all those mini stories about the characters you could unlock that were in it. Just now, a new Brigandine game relased on PS4. I enjoyed Vagrant Story (and this is the n-th time I misspelled enjoyed „enjeoyed“). I played Civilization 2 on PSOne endlessly. Both Parasite Eve games and Resident Evil 1, 2 and 3 I liked. The first Metal Gear Solid. I played a couple of Syphon filter games. A game called Panzer General also was great. And I remember liking The Legend of Dragoon, although if I am totally honest – I can’t really remember any more without youtube help what happened. PS2: My favorites include a couple of NIS games: Phantom Brave, Soul Nomad, Makai Kingdom, La Pucelle Tactics. Suikoden Tactics (often overlooked against the five main games), Grim Grimoire, Radiata Stories. ╔══════════════╗ |And Thus We End 2020| ╚══════════════╝ Thank you for all of those that participating in asking questions
  8. Welcome PSNP! Welcome back to Member Interviews in which we are blessed with the Irishman we all hope to one day be, @Gotakibono! Gotakibono Stock Questions How did you come up with your PSN name? Ah yes, the age old question. So, back in 2006 one of my best friends and I bonded over a shared love of Kings of Leon, who at the time were still largely unknown. Anyway, one summer evening we got his older brother to get us beer and we spent the evening drinking and listening to music. My friend stuck on this song: Now the chorus goes, “Good times to roll on”, but with the singer being as difficult to understand as he is, and with me being as drunk as I was, I started to sing along by yelling, “Go-ta—ki—bo--no.” My friend turned to me with a bemused expression on his face and was like, “Dude, what the fuck is a Gotakibono?” I’ve used the name ever since. What games convinced you get your PlayStation 3, Playstation Vita, and PlayStation 4? Well, even though I’ve bounced between PC, N64, Gameboy and Gamecube in my time as a gamer, the Playstation has always been my favorite platform and baseline for gaming. The various Playstation systems have consistently had games that greatly appeal to me. It’s really that simple! What are your top 5 game series and why? Metal Gear Solid: The series that made it clear to me that games had all the potential in the world to tell rich, engaging stories that were impossible in other media. Every single entry in the series was different and brought new mechanics to the table. And while the series is festering in its own filth at the moment, there’s no way I can ignore the impact and quality of those first four entries of Metal Gear Solid, plus Peace Walker. Age of Empires: Age of Empires 2 is possibly my most played game of all time, and I still occasionally play the HD edition to this day. I’m a huge fan of RTS and building mechanics in games, plus I’ve an avid interest in history, so AoE seems custom built for me. Silent Hill: For me, the atmosphere and psychological story-telling of the first four games are virtually unparalleled in the gaming industry. The second game has one of the most profound and thought-provoking narratives I’ve ever played through. Grand Theft Auto: Like, I hardly need to explain GTA’s inclusion on this list. I grew up with GTA2, GTA3 and Vice City and watched their influence rip over the entire industry like a tidal wave. They informed my early music tastes, were stupidly fun to play and were wholly unique back in the day. While I didn’t adore GTA 5 like its predecessors, it’s still a damn good game. I’m curious to see what direction they’ll take the series with GTA 6 – guess time’ll tell. FIFA: Before you kill me, FIFA being included here is not because of its quality, but because of the fact the series has been an ever-present throughout my life. It’s the type of game non-gamers in my social circles would play growing up, and I associate the series with countless funny tournaments with my friends and drunken teenage nights. And for the sheer amount of enjoyment and laughter the series has provided me, I sort of have to include it here. What are your top 5 games and why? Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is my go-to answer for my favorite game of all time. The rest of my top 5 will be arbitrarily ranked, but even after all these years Snake Eater just sits atop the rest. The mechanics, setting, story, voice-acting, game-play and design are just all feckin’ fantastic, with MGS3 Subsistence doing the impossible and improving it even further thanks to the option to quickly swap between a fixed camera angle and the now traditional third-person view. I could ramble for hours on the game so I’ll keep it short: It’s a hell of a game. It’s so damn hard to shortlist 4 more games out of all the games I’ve played, so I’m going to just quickfire type some: Spider-Man PS1: As a Spider-Man back in 2000 this was the shit. I loved all the cameos from other Marvel heroes – this remains the best Avengers game ever made. GTA Vice City/San Andreas: It’s hard to separate them, but Vice City was the king of swagger and San Andreas still puts most open world games to shame in terms of ambition, scope and depth. Tony Hawk’s Underground: I put so much time into this game back in 2003 and I adored the crazy amount of customization options available. The story mode was surprisingly good, too. Dead Space: It’s survival horror perfection, in my eyes. Which unreleased game(s) are you looking forward to the most and why? Honestly, Dying Light 2. I loved the mechanics of the first game and had a lot of fun playing it in co-op. And yes, zombies are a trope beaten to within an inch of its life, but the thought of playing through a wonderfully fun, challenging co-op story game written by one of The Witcher 3 writers is reason enough to be excited. However, the game seems to have vanished off the face of the earth… Second choice would be P.T. - there’s still a chance, right..? Do you have any other hobbies outside of gaming? I love music, reading and writing. I play drums and guitar, so I try to always play a little bit every week. Aside from that I’ve actually been making Youtube videos for the past 2 years or so as a little creative outlet. I made retrospective videos on my favorite games from yesteryear and make shorter opinion videos on whatever topics happen to be in my mind. Here’s my latest video: Top 5 TV shows, Movies, and/or anime, why, and would you recommend them to people? This is the hardest question because I have watched so many movies and TV shows in my life. I’m going to just type and see what comes out: Father Ted: The quintessential Irish sitcom Breaking Bad: You know why. Kung Pow: Enter the Fist: Get some friends together and laugh your arses off. Or watch it alone, no judgment here. Her: Excellent movie with a phenomenal soundtrack. Not really one for having friends over, though. It’s more of a sombre, “What am I doing with my life” sort of movie. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest: Perfect script, best/worst villain is movie history, tremendous acting and set design. Just a damn good movie. Top 5 favorite music bands/group/artists/composers/ost? The National Bob Dylan The Cure Thin Lizzy Alice In Chains Your favorite platinum and why? Max Payne 3 – It took time, skill and patience to unlock that sucker. I really don’t think I could do again, but I’m delighted I managed it once. Your least favorite platinum and why? The Walking Dead Season 1 – the epitome of lazy trophy design. Have you ever been tempted to switch over to the Xbox/Nintendo/PC gaming ecosystems? I’m not really a Playstation zealot or anything, it’s just Nintendo and Microsoft haven’t released a console that has games I’m interested in playing in the past ten years. I adored the Gamecube because it had a rich variation in its games and had some killer exclusives, but Nintendo, for all their hardware innovations over the past few years, are now completely beholden to old, tired IP’s, and Microsoft seem rudderless in terms of creating new IP’s. If you could have one game from any gaming generation be remade or re-released, which one would it be and why? Metal Gear Solid 1… and if rumours are to be believed I may be getting my wish. How far are you willing to go for a platinum? But to be fair, I was always the type of person to stop as soon as I wasn’t having fun – that’s why the Far Cry 2 platinum took me 5+ years. I’ve always been like that, only nowadays I seem to lose interest faster than back in the day. So, yeah, the fun factor matters a lot to me and I don’t stress myself over trophies; I’ll get them when I feel like it, and if I don’t get them, then that’s grand as well. What feature (besides backwards compatibility) do you think the next console generation should have? I think you should be able to store video and music files on the HDD. And yes, I know streaming is here and I’m maybe an auld, cranky bastard, but I would at least like the option. What is your favorite thing about PSNP? I’ve been here a long time and the one thing that keeps me coming back is the people and the discussions. I’ve spoken to so many great people that I’ve met through the site and had some fantastic game sessions and conversations with them. The community is very helpful and quick to lend a hand in helping with a trophy. What is your least favorite thing about PSNP? I hate that I still occasionally sink a lot of time into systemically going through the deep, detailed stats of my account and completely random accounts as opposed to actually trophy hunting! Is there anyone in the PSNP Community you would like to give a shout out too and if so why? I’m going to give a little shout out to all the people who migrated here in the wake of PS3trophies.com’s implosion. You know who you are, and I truly hope one day I can share a beer with you all. Community Questions What is the worst thing about video gaming? I think when I was younger I sort of used gaming as a distraction from things I should’ve been doing. While I don’t necessarily regret the time I spent gaming, as I got older I realised that a balance is important. During my late teens and early twenties I dedicated a lot of my free time to trophy hunting and gaming in general, which is something I definitely do not do as I’ve gotten older. So, yeah, gaming is amazing, but it can sometimes be an all too accessible way to take your attention away from other things. Do you miss ps3trophies.com? PS3trophies.com was a great little website back in the day, mainly because trophy hunting was such an incredibly niche demographic back then, way more than it is today. I met so many amazing people there and it was really my first experience with online gaming, so it’ll always hold a special place in my heart because of that. I like to think PSNP harbours the spirit of PS3trophies.com. As an Irishman, how worried are you about the Brexit and its implications? Hitting me with the hard questions! But yeah, I’m pretty worried, especially considering my ties to Northern Ireland and the fact that N.I. is the primary roadblock in Brexit discussions. I feel like any potential breakdown of the Good Friday Agreement would be beyond disastrous for Northern Ireland and the Republic, and could easily rupture an already shaky economy. But more importantly, the seeds of violence are still in the soil, and I hope that Brexit doesn’t fuel old tensions and cause any loss of life or violence. The whole thing is precarious right now and no-one seems to know what the fuck’ll happen next… I just don’t want the people of Ireland or Northern Ireland to suffer because of a decision ultimately made by England. What's your favorite song to play on the drums? Little Sister by Queens of the Stone Age – that feckin’ cowbell just gets me going. What's your favorite song to play on the guitar? (I know, creative genius) Damn it, okay my favourite song to play on guitar would be this: You have both Spyro 1 and Spyro 2 platted, so when will Spyro 3 follow? Very soon! I seem to have a condition that prevents me from playing the third entry in various series – like Jak and Daxter and Splinter Cell for example. However, with Sypro I tore through the first two games and didn’t have the heart to go straight into the third, even though it was my favourite Sypro back on the PS1. So, unlike the other games, I definitely intend on platting the third game, probably once I finish Days Gone so I have something quick and fun to play. What is the best-looking car in the world and why is it the Fiat Multipla 1.6-16V Active Plus? I’ve always been partial to this bad boy: Is Thierry Henry the most hated man in Ireland considering the 2009 World Cup play-off handball, or is it Paul McShane? Oh Thierry, you and your big stupid hand. I think as a country we’ve let go of the pain and gone back to collectively hating Bono. As for Paulie cakes, I’d say hatred is too strong a word for him; he’s more like that somewhat idiotic friend we all have that we could never bring ourselves to hate, but we are most definitely disappointed with everything they do. How many tears have been shed over the FIFA 10 100%? Enough to flood a football pitch. Honestly, I don’t know what I’d do if I ever got the option to remove it from my list these days. It used to bother me but now I’ve sort of accepted it for what it is. Toga, in your opinion, what is the earliest acceptable date to begin decorating your home for Christmas? Man, good to see you here! Hope all is well with you. Anyway, I think the first week of December is more than acceptable. A few weeks earlier than that is pushing the limits of acceptable – but can we at least agree that having decorations in shop shelves alongside Halloween costumes should be considered legally insane? Considering you're not Bono, are you by any chance Larry Mullen jr., and if so, does Bono always wear weird sunglasses? Oh my God he’s always wearing those stupid fuc… Wait, I have no idea what you’re talking about. Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls and Detroit: Become Human, please rank these three games from worst to best explaining why. Heavy Rain – loved the atmosphere and was much more engaged with what was happening with the story when I played it first. Detroit: Become Human – Probably the most cohesive story out of the three, but for me it lacked the distinct atmosphere of Heavy Rain. Beyond: Two Souls – Amazingly acted and had a great concept, but the execution was a bit of a jumbled mess that sort of fell apart by the end. When the member interview project was approved to come back, what were your thoughts? Were you hopeful? What do you think could be done to improve the project? I was surprised, to be honest. I’m always a bit taken aback when anyone says they want to hear what I have to say! I’m grateful to have been asked and so far the project works as well as possible, from my perspective at least. Have you played Roblox? I have not – am I missing out? Knack 2 when? Never Last year my family and I took a trip to Ireland and made a loop around the northern half of the island (Belfast, Derry, Donegal, Galway, and Dublin). We had a great time and would like to come back to visit the southern half sometime. Any recommendations for can't-miss locations? I live in a small town called Westport, and it’s frequently regarded as the best place to live in Ireland. There’s a famous mountain called Crough Patrick with a church on top of it that overlooks Clew Bay, a famous inlet that has 365 islands. There’s also the Green Way, a popular cycle lane that goes all the way to Achill Island and Westport House, a historic house in the centre of town built on the ruins of one of Grace O’Malley’s old castles. If that’s not your thing, you really check out the Ring of Kerry next time you’re here – it’s genuinely stunning. Pop in to Cork for a visit while you’re down in Kerry as well! It’s my favorite city on the island, bar Galway of course. Hope you have an enjoyable visit once this whole pandemic blows over… If you are not a fan of anime/manga, then... If you ever were fortunate enough to win the lottery [for this example, let's say $90 million dollars ($76 million euros) was what you won], what would you do with all of that money? Buy as many PS5’s as possible and double my money. Has a trophy ever made you not want to start or complete a game without the trophy in question being something that would be considered excessively difficult? I don’t think I avoid difficult trophies per se, but I’m definitely put off by trophies that require me following a guide to a tee. It’s not really how I like to play games, and having to constantly refer to a guide turns gaming into a monotonous chore for me. Best recent example would be Deus Ex Mankind Divided. It’s looks like a great game but is trophy list goes completely against how you’re supposed to play those games. Maybe one day... ____________________________________________________________________ Thank you to all who participated in asking questions in this interview See you next week for the reveal of 2020's final interviewee
  9. No, it is not something we can resolve. Should you like to, being that you think it easy to, you may want to create your own site and guide system yourself. It has been explained numerous times that it is something that Sly has said he was looking into and is specifically only something that Sly can fix by updating the guide system feature of things that the community and the staff want. Do not hound the team for what is out of their control.
  10. This has been pointed out by myself personally to Sly back in the summer when doing Game Info Updates. The points display is a 16 bit number, and so cannot compute beyond 65,535. This is something only Sly can fix because it is specific to the sites source code.
  11. It is an issue in how the source code for the site is coded, and therefore, only the owner can fix the issue. We do not allow porting of guides because Sly has stated he will eventually fix this particular issue, but also because it would dilute the guide system to a degree akin to a regard that one might have to regional stacking games. Consider if we had continued to allow this, we have 2400+ guides on the site, to port those guides to every release/version of a game could very well triple that number for the sake of a small group of people. It would be so diluted that the New Guides list would never showcase new authors because of porting. Additionally, you would then invite further complications when it comes to how the site displays some specific sets of information. Really, to understand the issue, you need to think back to when the site was made and what was typically available at the time in terms of trophy lists and the frequency of rereleases/regional stacks. Back when the guide feature was developed, it really wasn't on anyone's mind at the time that a single game might have 14 stacks of the same game. It seems like an obvious thing now, but back then I assure you it certainly wasn't. We know that it is on Sly's to-do list, but not what priority it sits at within that list. There are some features of the site that have been in beta for awhile now that I'm sure even more people would like to see than this particular issue. Has there been time for Sly to implement this improvement to a feature that many have wanted? Yes, there definitely has been. But as it stands, it is firm that we will not allow porting because of the above explanation of dilution. I went into detail as to how game linking affects guides previously in other places on the site, but most recently I have done so here.
  12. It is the same problem all the same. Germany had a specifically unique release. Because the guides are made from the global worldwide release, it would not show that tracking interaction. I go more into detail in regards to linked games and guides here: Very specifically, only the version of the game the guide was made for will have tracking and rating, so alternate versions of the game that are linked would not have this. To visualize, below is an image of the three Wolfenstein games. Only the specific highlighted list will have the tracking you are speaking of.
  13. Regarding Game Linking and how it affects Guides When games are linked, whether it be console releases or regional releases, the site is coded to pool all guide information assigned to each individual list that was made for those linked items. The guide page then displays that compiled list of all guides made for those releases/versions that are linked to one another. When we say linked releases, we mean any game in the "Other Platforms and Regions" that may appear under the forum topic list on a trophy list. Shown here, you can see how guides get pooled together, and below, that it is due to the connection as explained above. On the trophy pages, the header guide that is auto-assigned will display across all game variants and will only feature the first published 'Trophy Guide' that was made for all the linked games. Sometimes this does cause issues and it has been asked if the GIT can manually assign the appropriate guide to the appropriate game. You can see how this is an issue by looking at Jetpack Joyride. Three trophy guides are made, all for a slightly different trophy list across vita, ps3 and ps4. Here is a link so that you can visualize this: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/4527-jetpack-joyride. As you can see in the above picture, the three linked games all display the guide that was specifically made for Vita because it was the first published 'Trophy Guide' of the games linked. Why does this happen? Well, simply put, when the site was made it was not really common for games to release in multiple regions as they do currently and so it was never accounted for in the development of the feature. Of course these days, you cannot go so much as a week without seeing a double stack of some nature whether it be regional or platform based. So when the guides were made back then, typically it was expected that it would only ever have had a single list. Clearly that is no longer the case though lol. When will this be fixed? The team doesn't really know. Only Sly has access to the source code and so only Sly can create a permanent fix to the problem. He is aware of the issues and so is the team, and it has been said by him that it is on a to-do list of things. Where approximately in that list would this fix be? Sorry to say, but only Sly knows that answer. For the time being though, users will only be able to rate guides on the region that the guide was made for, as was stated earlier in this thread. I know this is not the solution you want to hear, but it is out of the Guide Teams control in this regard.
  14. Please refer to the quoted topic from above. In a layman's term, it is not a simple fix, at least, not in the way that things are coded and has complications with other site features that are also affected by region linking. However, @HusKy I think has, or may have planned, trophy tracking through all linked regions a guide may belong to in the extension that was developed by him. I recommend, if you are interested in the extension, to look at this thread. That's not a solution to the problem. As mentioned, by Daivy in the topic he quoted, the solution is something that Sly has been aware of and has on his ever mysterious to-do list.
  15. Unfortunately it will not be added in this case. The games director, Anoop Shekar directly states that it is not part of the Saints Row series, and that it is only calling back and referencing it. It was their hope, as I gather, that this game would spark it's own series, similar to how Zombie Army became its own series. (It was originally a DLC that was popular enough to have a series development)
  16. Today's the final day to get your questions in for @Rally-Vincent---!

    Speak now or forever hold your peace!

  17. Welcome one and all to the final questions thread for 2020 and the final of the current format! Please welcome @Rally-Vincent--- and ask them all your worldly desires You may be asking, who is this person? Well, let's find out. Questions can be submitted starting now until December 27th, 2020. Rally has provided the community a snippet about themselves to help with coming up with questions About Me Hi guys and gals, I am Rally Vincent (Rally for short). I am from Germany. I'm in my mid-forties, so probably in the upper levels of the age pyramid here. I work as a lawyer. It's a job as any other, I suppose. I am playing video games for 30 years. Back then, gaming was fun, too. Video gaming has made leaps and leaps since then. One small example: saving. Free saving was not possible back then. You had to use save points, so manually saving was very important. A lost save was a lesson for life. In some games, you even could not save at all. My first gaming system was the Amiga 500, with the memory extension from 500KB to 1MB. Yes, upgraded to 1MB, as unbelievable as this seems nowadays. We also had a family Gameboy with a couple of games (Tetris, Advance Wars, a Mario Game, Mahjong). From there I went on to the PSOne, PS2, PS3 and PS4. I also play games on PC. I may be the odd one out at PSNP when it comes to trophies. I play games for fun, that's the only reason on how I choose games. I am not playing them for trophies - those are just a nice addition, but not the reason I play games. I also don't see trophies as a means of competition in whatever kind. To me, they are just showing which games we play and how far we got into them. I use PSNP to track myself, to find new games via people who have similar tastes as me, and to talk about video games. I mostly play video games that tell me a story. I make exceptions, for example strategy games and simulations. I love to experience new stories.I like stories in all forms: Books, Anime, movies and shows, video games. Naturally, some of my favorite games are RPGs, action RPGs, cRPGs or story-driven action games. My pet peeves in video gaming are online stuff in single player games and DLC. I dislike both. I also don’t use handhelds. My handhelds are books. Interview setup The setup for all PSNP interviews will be as follows: After the new interviewee has been revealed, the PSNP community will have 10 days to ask their questions. While the community is coming up with questions, the interviewee has the time to work on the 16 standard questions After those 10 days, those question along with the standard question will be sent to the interviewee. The interviewee will have another 7 days to answer as many of the questions as they want. Once the interviewee has finished answering the question, I will post the whole Interview in a new thread. How to be a Interviewee If anyone wants to be interviewed all they have to do is say they would like to be added on the interview signup thread. After that the member will be added to the list of potential interviewees. List of questions Standard Questions How did you come up with your PSN name?

    Get your questions in before it is too late :popcorn:

  19. It will be added in the spin-off no stage, but only because it is defined officially as a spinoff of Yakuza by the developers. It will be added as an official title in its own stage between the current 5 and 6 (MotoGP15 and MotoGP17) While I do appreciate the heads up, titles that are released in the recent games list do not generally need to be pointed out in which series a new release might belong to. Please allow us time to make appropriate updates to games especially in the holiday season. I cannot speak for everyone, but I myself am spending time with those I haven't seen for the better part of several years. That said though, thank you for your ever constant vigilance in assisting the team these past few years.
  20. When the Member Interview Project was approved to come back, what were you thoughts? Were you surprised you had been selected? What do you think could improve the project?
  21. Being that I will not likely meet the 2021 deadline for the database overhaul, I'll spend the rest of the year to standardize all series made presently to fit within our established guidelines as of now and then update the masterlist. Not sure when it'll be done, but I'll make an update when it is. There is a discussion pertaining to nostage section changes amongst the team, but ultimately this remains an internal discussion with Sly and the team. For the time being, we will continue to use this space for spinoff titles.
  22. I've just updated the meta for this game, right before your thread 😅
  23. As was mentioned in a previous thread, should you like to, you may write your own guide for the PS5 version but we will not import the PS4 guide to the PS5 verion for the above reason.
  24. Welcome to Guide Headquarters 2.0! This thread has been made to help better keep up to date, communicate, as well as answer some long asked questions from the community. Additionally, feel free to ask for proofreading, advice and any manner of guide related nature in this thread =) Here are some quick links within the guide handbook for helpful topics as well: General Guidelines Porting Guides From Other Sites How do I Start Creating a Guide? Plagiarism Details, and How To Write Them Well Sentence Structure Spelling and Grammar Rules on Referring to Yourself Formatting Links Linking a Trophy Tables Multi-Columned Lists Images and Videos Tagging Trophies Deleting a Guide Bugs & How to Fix/Avoid Them Generally speaking, it is these guidelines in which the team weighs each guide against in their review Guide of the Year Awards At the end of each year the community votes for the guides they liked the most each year and the result are three winners who win cool prizes and so many great runner ups who get our love and appreciation. To encourage high quality guides and reward members for their hard work, PSNProfiles holds an annual Guide of the Year Awards. Every year a number of guides are nominated that have been published between last year's December 2nd and this year's December 1st that fall within a number of criteria. These guides are then voted on to determine the top three in each category and additionally, the top three overall guides get a shiny badge and the writers also receive a prize. The Categories Exceptional Walkthrough Guide: A well made, extremely helpful walkthrough of a game or overall trophy list. Exceptional Gameplay Guide: Anything that isn't a walkthrough such as a collectible guide or a supplementary guide Exceptional DLC Guide: Guides for pieces of DLC or patches that add trophies. Exceptional Niche Game Guide: These include guides for indie games and non-AAA games that don't have that many players. Exceptional Use of Formatting: Some writers make their guide so clean and organized it's like an artwork by making great use of headings, colors, images, etc. Exceptional Use of Original Content: Some writers go the extra mile and make their own videos, images, and combination of these within their guide. Exceptional Imported Game Guide: The guide creator has gone above and beyond in translating trophy titles, descriptions, and usually additional translation work within the trophy descriptions themselves. These are no easy task! The Guide Masterlist Trophy Guides DLC Guides Gameplay Guides This list will be updated occasionally as guides are published but not necessarily immediately. Finding Your Guides After creating a guide, it's placed in the "My Guides" tab in the Guides section of the site (see image below). You can get there by selecting "Guides" in the navigation bar at the top of the site, then selecting "Mine" on the right side by the search bar. This will take you to the My Guides Page. So don't worry about having to write it in one sitting. Guides Bounty Board Here is where games will be posted for games the community would like to see Here is a list of the games that have been suggested, thank you Saltyie for coming up with this idea.

It can be an invaluable resource to finding inspiration and assistance in your future works. How to Report a Guide As time goes on, our guidelines and expectations change. This too, applies to guides. If there is a published guide that you feel is not up to snuff in regards to the guidelines in Writing a Guide, or has fallen into an unusable state due to game updates or some other issues, please feel free to contact the outlined staff below and specifically mention the guide in question, the issue that is prevalent within the guide, and the resolution you propose to provide context to the issue. As a team we will appraise the issue and take actions according to what is believed to be the best course of action for the guide reported. Additionally, staff can be contacted via the PSNProfiles discord if that is easier to communicate with our staff. Commonly asked Questions How long does it take for a guide to be reviewed? A guide may be reviewed typically within a week of submission but may take longer depending on the availability of staff and current events within the staff schedule. How do I know if a guide is being worked on? It is recommended to first check the "What guide(s) are you currently writing" thread and see who is currently working on what. If you still are unsure, you may double check with any of the staff highlighted above. How many guides can be published for a game? Generally, we allow two guides per base game trophy list, and one guide per DLC. There are no limits at this time however for gameplay guides. The only caveat for trophy guides is that the subsequent guide must be equal to or greater in quality than that of the original guide. There exist in the masterlist some examples of publications that exceed these limits but are considered to be legacy guides before we formally established our rules. Are authors responsible for guide upkeep? All authors are expected to and are responsible for the upkeep of their individual guides and addressing concerns within their own comments section. It is strongly recommended to reach out to authors in regards to changes and updates but please do not harass members on subjective concerns such as difficulty rating. Please keep things civil. Can I import my guide from another website? Yes, you may import your guide from another website providing you own all materials and content of the guide in question and may need to update formatting to be in line with PSNProfiles guidelines. Can I import my guide to another region/platform of the game? No. While this was allowed in the early days, we as a team came to the decision that creating multiple guides for every trophy region/platform would over saturate the list of guides on site, and on that specific games guidelist.
  25. No, Bloodbourne, Demon Souls and Seikero have nothing to do with eachother, as much as the fans of the community might want there to be. A sequel to Demon's Souls would need to happen for it to be a series, same with Bloodbourne and Seikero There is an on-going discussion on wether or not to merge a number of series, these two happen to be in said discussion To have a PS5 guide, someone would need to write one, guide related questions are better asked in the Guide Writer's Headquarters While we recognize serialstation as being a good resource, it often does not paint the full picture and so it cannot be the primary source of information on wether or not something should be removed. It is best paired with a more reliable source of information like a developer response, such as what you have given with Letter Quest. As far as the removal of trophy lists entirely, only Sly can do so, and it requires that there be absolute logic and reason behind its removal. As of now, the only lists that were removed were junk data lists pushed through the Sony API in the PS5 releash rush. The only thing the team can do is unlink games from other games. We cannot delete games from the server.
