  1. Enter the Gungeon. It's the one I started a while ago (when it came out) and repeatedly gave up and restarted on. So many hours, but I actually had fun. I'm almost sad it's over.
  2. I got the first three stages with a diamond trophy after dozens of tries each. Frankly, it will take a lot of practice. It's really fun though... great aesthetic, exciting soundtrack, fair mechanics. If you've tried Olli olli, trials fusion, tony hawk (in its glory days) then it has some similar elements like tricks and chaining multipliers. It's a great palate cleanser from all the huge AAA titles and battle royales nowadays. Highly recommended.
  3. The hitboxes are quite off. Lion's roundhouse kick has priority over everything. So much that on half the AI opponents, you can spam it and win. Also it's good to keep in mind when it was in the arcade, it was meant to take your money. There's a lot of cheapness (like Akira AI pulling off moves about as quickly as a pro). That all being said, it has not aged well. On PS Now you can play this or Virtua Fighter 5 and the latter is much better in terms of the tactics, hitboxes, and move priority. Perfectly balanced? No. But better as a game several iterations later should be.
  4. I hear you! I just have to get 2 more museum items and do the prairie king stuff for the platinum. I was disappointed when I loaded the Vita version. Guess this game will be just for relaxing.
  5. I just beat the game with no assist (just 30 minutes ago lol), but I also have less experienced gamers (two elementary kids and a casual gamer spouse) in my home that saw me cheering after every passed section. The difficulty level is a turn off for them, but assist mode might pull them in. Not all of us find 2000 plus deaths a badge of honor! Some might find it soul crushing. I want this game to be experienced by everyone. Do what you gotta do. Congrats to all of you with the platinum already! Fast minds, good eyes, and nimble thumbs all.
  6. Many of us have completed games just for the platinum. And cheesed through. If you get this game, you owe it to yourself to do it for real. 476 deaths before beating a chapter? Pat yourself on the back!
  7. Thanks for clarifying!
  8. The other question is...If a teammate finds a survivor, does it go into YOUR tally? If your teammate has explored all the map, do you get the credit? I wish there was a counter to show you your progress. I think average mission is 15 minutes IMHO at this point. If you're trying to find everything each match, maybe 20 to 25? You're going to have to do 1,000 missions of "Play with Others", which are separate from the campaign. So you're probably going to knock out a huge chunk of survivors, garden gnomes, map exploration while you're grinding at that. It will be a grind and a half, so I would say if you're already tentative, you should probably steer clear. It might be hundreds of hours for that plat. I think if the game is going to have a great deal of longevity (with frequent updates and events), this might not be a big issue.
  9. Thanks so much for your advice!
  10. Finding the match isn't hard, just make sure you stick to the mode you're best at. I personally am not good at Big Bang (I didn't try this mode until I was forced to in Online matches). It took me on average 1 to 2 minutes to find a match. I would occasionally get a champion/high tier enemy from Japan and would get my ass kicked, but it took only a couple hours tops. I think the player base is strong right now, so go for it.
  11. The AI does a good job for the most part, but when you get to certain trophies (like beating the first boss without taking damage or completely mapping a whole level) it can get hard AND tiresome. Luckily, you can play on Beginner mode for a majority of the trophies--but it's still rough with just you by your lonesome. You will probably need a second controller for some random things (like doing the dumb pirouette with your partner repeatedly). It's doable. Maybe rate it a 4 or 5 out of 10 for difficulty.
  12. I platinumed this on PS4....Invisible and Countdown Modes were frustrating, but overall it was fun. It's one of the few (I have a hundred plats finally) that I'm super proud of. There and back again.
  13. I just about died when I remembered Yooka-Laylee and Wonderboy. Excitement! I really meant that the plat itself is easy (on normal or easy mode most of the way through). As far as how to push through the game on 2 player, I would just say that you have to assign a pilot/gunner and a shield/gunner. Gunners need to favor the side where their shield or piloting station is (this matters more on some ships than others). There's really only two tactics in the game when you've got two people: 1) Stay and fight. 2) Run and have someone position the shield to block fire. There's a shit ton of nuance (like having the environment on one side so you don't get flanked, having shields on the opposite side of the direction you are moving, driving the ship INTO smaller enemies so you can avoid large enemy fire). I would also suggest to try to get ALL the bunnies in the first few levels so you can start upgrading the ship to have more sockets for gems. Last piece of advice: Don't be afraid to play on Easy. I think Expert is truly for those with more than 2 players, LOL...and those who like pain.
  14. As someone who bought Lovers last year, I would say it is definitely NOT in everyone's wheelhouse. If you have a buddy (or significant other) who misses the days of really chaotic couch co-op, it really is something different and worth some of your time...especially now that it will be free. Crank the difficulty to max and it actually IS hard. But overall, it's an easy plat if you've got a buddy nearby. Just be ready to yell at each other about who's NOT piloting the ship away from the explosion fast enough as you retry the mission...AGAIN. Good couch co-op is very old school, niche, and, for at least some consoles, almost absent. Obligatory soapbox sermonizing following obligatory shitting on ps plus free titles concluded.
  15. Correction. You can do most of the bundles with items, back up your game, buy a Joja membership and last bundle, and it should pop after the next day. Then reload the backup and complete the bundles with no Joja.
