  1. I'm in the process of making a trophy guide for this game. Most people who platinumed the game used various Japanese forums/posts of the game, from decoration drop areas to sub quest stuff, but there isn't a definitive side quest list out there yet (to my knowledge). If it means anything, I'm 99% sure that you don't need to complete every side quest, just a specific hand full. If it's possible, I'll create a comprehensive list of every side quest and their details if one doesn't surface by the time I finish the guide. Otherwise, I'll just list the necessary ones.
  2. You're letting your hatred for mainstream music blind you if you genuinely believe that most of these immensely popular artists are talent less. I absolutely hate Taylor Swift and her music, but I cannot discredit her ability to make catchy and relatable music to the common (usually female) listener. An incredibly popular artist like Drake has mainstream appeal because he applies both (usually) great production with, again, incredibly relatable lyrics. That in itself is a talent, whether they do it alone, or has a team help them. With that being said, most of these artists are about as deep as a puddle; not in a sense of exposing underlying themes and all that, but rather the depth of the literal music production. Now take an artist like Kendrick Lamar and compare it to one of the genre's biggest contemporaries, Drake, and Kendrick outclasses Drake in every single way possible, except for perhaps the mainstream radio appeal. Kendrick's music has incredible instruments, story telling, and all around fantastic as a piece of consumption. Drake on the other hand, might lack the depth that someone like Kendrick has, but he still has such a great formula to combine fun/relatable lyrics and great production to create songs that people can mindlessly put on to enjoy. Both of these, while are not in the same lane, both are arguably the best at what they do, and neither should be dismissed because one is "mainstream" and the other not so much. Another example is Taylor Swift and Carly Rae Jepsen. Taylor applies the same methods that Drake does in making, to put it simply, great radio music with an extremely broad appeal. Carly Rae Jepsen on the other hand, which is essentially just a more fleshed out and developed Taylor Swift, makes just as fantastic music, but isn't anywhere close to as popular. This is particularly due to Taylor Swift being America's sweetheart among all other things, but Carly Rae Jepsen's music is genuinely fantastic, and just because it is pop and borderline "mainstream", doesn't make it any less credible than another. The bottom line is that, unless a particular kind of music/artist literally hurts people's ears, the words talent less should not be applied simply because you don't like it. Music is considered the universal language for a reason, it's not something that should be entirely dismissed, although can be viewed purely objectively; a mix that is rarely ever done properly. You shouldn't let other people change your opinion and taste on music, nor should you try to change anyone elses. Accept that other people will have other tastes, and not very many artists that most people label as not talented are actually untalented. Limiting yourself to any specific genre, or completely cutting off others is simply closed minded, and people will probably just feel bad for you if you do this to yourself.
  3. In game it says to visit Mt. Ankaa to find Blood of Cerberus. The only Mt. Ankaa key I have is the lesser level 3 one, but I have ran through it at least 25 times now, and haven't found anything. Am I doing something wrong, or is this pure luck? I'm on the quest where you have to create the binding glue. Edit: Ignore this post, I'm an idiot haha. I already had the ingredients for summoning the UFO spirit, I just had to go to the school grounds at 10:00 at night to get the real Mt. Ankaa key.
  4. its game of the year already the trophies are very self-contained it seems, none are particularly missable i imagine, considering the game operates on a very small time loop, with only a couple things acting as literal progression. I doubt any true missables, and the other trophies seem to come naturally if you play the game for the most part.
  5. I can see why people think he doesn't deserve one considering the characters he usually plays are either very similar which can be boring or simply one note, but personally, I think he does a great job and deserves one.
  6. Why would he not deserve an award? He is clearly one of the best voice actors in the industry, countless memorable roles and fantastic game series. I mean, he of all people definitely deserves an award for his hard work.
  7. Decent list of games there, but I certainly think you should try to platinum The Witcher 3, or Nier: Automata first. They're easily two of the best games to come out in the last decade. The Witcher 3's platinum is significantly harder than Nier: Automata though, assuming you don't use the trophy unlocker that is built into the game.
  8. I'm gonna be working on a guide for Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time as soon as it is released in North America on May 15th. Not sure if anyone else is working on one already, but I am pretty sure people already are playing it.
  9. Yeah, it has plenty multiplayer trophies. On the bright side, they're all easily boostable. But I would recommend at least playing the story on one of your accounts, as it is one of gaming's best.
  10. Red Dead Redemption, Metal Gear Solid 2, 3, and 4 are a couple good ones. Not sure how many of those are on PSNow though.
  11. Ya, they're worth getting imo. In terms of enjoyment, they're pretty quality additions to the game. In terms of trophies, they're pretty standard aside from Mein Leben, but even Mein Leben for the DLCs is significantly easier than in the base game, obviously.
  12. There's no downside to it. Allowing users to create their own content within a game simply allows creative types to try their hand at whatever tools are provided. Obviously, developers shouldn't neglect their own designs and make sure that their own content in the base game is up to par, but allowing user generated content is just a good idea all around. It's a fantastic practice that more developers should implement into their games.
  13. Platinum #37: A Way Out I wasn't expecting to enjoy this game as much as I did, honestly. The initial awful voice acting was quite off putting to say the least, but the game progressively got much better very quickly as the game progressed. The ending was fantastic too, I really couldn't be happier with how it ended up working out. A pleasant surprise, but I'm very happy to have gotten the chance to play this game with a partner. Enjoyment: 9/10 Difficulty: 1/10
  14. Avengers: Infinity War was absurdly good, my expectations were completely surpassed 10 times over. Would recommend.

      They clearly do. The avengers movie next year was originally infinity war pt2 until they changed the name for reasons I can't remember. The post credits scene hints to captain marvel which is out early next year, before avengers pt2, and whilst I'm not familiar with the character I've read she's someone who could do something about it. We'll see anyway. Great movie. It was nice to see a marvel film that didn't end with everything being hunky dory

      Spoiler

      I agree with the last point. I am kind kind of sick and tired of happy endings for the sake of happy endings.  The problem with this is that when they get their magic dohicky that will make everything better, it will ultimately still be a happy ending...
