  1. I was unaware online was required for plat. Played the game last summer and participated in online wars on several occasions. I don't know why but it seems I never got any of those flags you're supposed to get after war ending and talking to people in your capital. I only have one beginner flag in inventory so I'm pretty confused now. All I got was some skills or some other rewards. Welp. Too late for the flags now I guess. Would have been great if the guide here had been accurate and mentioned that online is actually needed for something else than just leveling up faster.
  2. Did you try tossing a coin near the award? I think I had some trouble getting her to go check the award but managed by using a coin. If nothing seems to work, replaying the mission might help. Good luck with the trophy!
  3. Savalas won't always react to the gramophone if she's in the middle of doing something else. Try changing your timing with triggering the gramophone, tossing a coin or nudging her and then triggering it in case she's somehow stuck.
  4. Nice! Which color did you go with the Lite? And what other games are you looking forward to playing? Welcome to the "Switch owners' club"! I put Fire Emblem on hold temporarily as I got Link's Awakening and started playing that. I've cleared the first 5 dungeons and loving the game so far (haven't played the original on Game Boy). The visual style is really eye-catching. The EU limited edition came with nice extras: a Game Boy look-a-like Steelbook case and a hardcover artbook.
  5. Microsoft is killing it with Xbox Game Pass for PC. They're adding 10 new games in September alone. Most recent additions to the library: Killer Instinct: Definitive Edition Dirt Rally 2.0 Bad North: Jotunn Edition Enter the Gungeon Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Shadow Warrior 2 GoNNER Gears 5 Creature in the Well Dead Cells Blair Witch Cities: Skylines and Saints Row IV: Re-Elected also coming this month. Here's an almost complete list of games available right now: https://www.pcgamer.com/uk/xbox-game-pass-pc-game-list/ Amazing service. When you're unsure if you'd like some game, just need to press a button to install a game and try anything you want. It's still only a mere 4 € / month (1 € for the first month). You can share the same subscription with your family with no additional cost. We have 2 PCs and 2 people using the same subscription and we can play co-op together too. For the original poster (well, for anyone really) I'd recommend the Gears of War games. Highly entertaining and well-made 3rd person shooters that are well optimized for PC. Forza Horizon 4 is a great game too if you're looking for more exclusives you can't find on PS4. Getting an Xbox One wireless controller is a great idea like @Fragtaster mentioned, as it makes playing some games much more comfortable. Windows 10 has native support for it. The Xbox One controller may be my favorite controller design judging by ergonomics. Especially loving the diamond grip added on the Gears 5 controller. Epic Games also offers free games every month. Just need to install their launcher to play them. Epic launcher doesn't restrict playing games on multiple machines simultaneously either unlike Steam. If you're tired of managing multiple launchers, there are universal launchers like GOG Galaxy and Playnite. P.S. Control on PC with full ray tracing looks amazing. Game also handles well with mouse and keyboard (didn't try with a controller yet).
  6. Have you tried Fitness Boxing? It's great for getting some exercise and actually quite fun. There's a variety of different routines (with jabs, straights, hooks, uppercuts, blocking, weaving, ducking, etc.) and selection for exercise duration and speed. The game has helped with my stiff shoulders and you can get a good sweat playing it when you go for some of the more intense routines. We have played it every evening with my husband for the past 4 months. I've heard people have had good results using the game for losing weight as well. There's a demo available on eShop if you want to try it out. I saw the trailer for Ring Fit Adventure and it looked like it might be fun. The visuals made it look like a mobile game and I'm not sold on the gameplay I saw. I'm going to see some reviews before even considering getting it. I was hoping for a new Wii Fit, though I occasionally still play Wii Fit U on Wii U.
  7. They're trying to reel me in using my weak spots: artbooks and soundtracks. I'll remain strong and resist as I've already played Rune Factory 4 on 3DS (excellent game btw). Is it just me, or is the perspective or proportions wonky in the packaging artwork, especially for Frey?
  8. Got a new rig for 10th wedding anniversary. Old one was a mid-range gaming PC from 2015. Maybe now I can get a bit higher fps for stuff like Hatoful Boyfriend. OMEN by HP CPU: Intel i7-8700K 3.70GHz - 4.70 GHz GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (11 GB) RAM: 32 GB DDR4 2666 MHz HyperX Storage: 512 GB SSD + 2 TB 7200 RPM SATA Cooling: Liquid cooling PSU: 750 W OS: Win 10 Home Display: Asus ROG Swift PG278QR 27" WQHD, 2560 x 1440 @ 144/165 Hz I'm hoping the CPU won't be a bottleneck. The setup is upgradable though so guess I should be fine for a while. Haven't had time to test how the GPU performs with ray tracing yet, got free download codes for Control and Wolfenstein: Youngblood though. Went with TN panel for the display as it seems there's some issues with the IPS panels at the moment.
  9. They'll probably drop PS3 and Vita support if and when they need to change the architecture of PSN. Could happen as soon as when PS5 comes out. They won't be dragging around obsolete systems forever, hindering their chances to get modern robust systems for their current flagship products and to keep up with the competition.
  10. Ah, awesome that PS+ is not required. Thank you so much for the info @MrHealthy!
  11. I skipped Astral Chain for now due to my backlog on Switch. I'm possibly getting it later. I see the reviews have been very positive and the setting is interesting.
  12. It also works the other way around: there's no need to explore the whole game or return to it when you've already scored the platinum trophy. Happens to me and my husband almost every time with titles on PlayStation. I can easily play Xenoblade Chronicles 2 for 220+ hours and just roam around looking for secrets and fun quests when there are no trophies involved that tell you how you should be playing the game. I play a wide variety of games on multiple platforms (3DS, Vita, Wii U, PS3, PS4, Switch, PC). I take the least chances with games on PS because I don't want to end up with unobtainable platinums. Somehow gaming on PlayStation is starting to feel like a chore. I'm fine with Switch not having any achievement system.
  13. Dead or Alive 6 (PS4) DEAD OR ALIVE 6 Master Unlocked all trophies. Funny story behind choosing to play this game. I was playing Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water (aka Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water) on Wii U and Ayane was a playable guest character. I realized I had never played any Dead or Alive games despite having played a lot of fighting games. I remembered DOA6 had looked interesting and conveniently it happened to be on sale. Noticed the plat rarity was something around 20% so I figured it can't be that difficult so I should be able to plat it too. Hadn't played any fighting games in years really and it took a while to get used to the mechanics and controls of DOA for someone who is most familiar with Tekken's control scheme. The tutorial lessons gave a good introduction so I didn't have to button mash my way through the whole game. Quarter circles and half circles are the bane of my existence and Dualshock 4 didn't seem like the best option for diagonal movements. Got a sore thumb from D-pad. The first thing I noticed is that the visual presentation is really nice. Characters, costumes and environments are nicely designed, modeled and animated. There are cool details like sweat dripping down the characters' faces and bodies, clothes getting wet or sandy when falling down, bruises and scratches appearing on characters' faces or their clothing getting damaged when hit by powerful moves. Accessories fly off and hair gets untied too when the going gets rough. Stages are destructible and they expand as barriers get shattered. Didn't expect to see so much humor in the game. Stage hazards like flying dinosaurs and krakens snatching the players were delightfully silly and the story mode had some parts that raised a smile. The characters are likeable and interesting. There’s a couple of new characters in the game and I was surprised to learn the new tiny blue-haired scientist girl is from Finland. I see the developers haven’t been to Finland. Otherwise they’d have known Finns are giants. Like amazons that tolerate sub zero temperatures. I mean, the average height of a female here is 165 cm, so NiCO being 149 cm seems a bit unrealistic. Maybe she hasn't been fed as a child. I’m almost 30 cm taller than her. But I admit I like joulutorttus too which are NiCO's favorite food. There's a good amount of single player content which seems rare in fighting games these days. I liked the branching story mode and DOA Quest where you need to clear certain objectives during the match. Audio department is handled well. Sound effects and music make combat a pumping experience and there are some catchy pieces on the soundtrack. You can choose between Japanese and English voices. Now to the bad points. Loading times seem pretty long even when I’ve just had a match in the same stage with the same characters. When a match takes like 30 - 90 seconds it’s not fun to be sitting around and waiting for the stage to load for 30 - 45 seconds. The costume unlocking system is grindy and annoying. By playing certain game modes you get points towards unlocking a random costume. You might get 133 points but the costume needs 1000 points before you can purchase it from the wardrobe. And the next points are awarded for a totally different costume so you end up playing for 2 hours and may not have gotten any costumes at all. In addition to this the clunky interface won’t even let you see which costumes (and for which character) have been unlocked for purchase at a glance when you head to the wardrobe - you need to inspect each of them separately to see if you have fulfilled the required points… The UI shows all DLC costumes in the same list, making sure you won’t forget them. I can imagine how annoying it is for a completionist seeing how something “hasn’t been unlocked” yet because you haven’t purchased something with real money. DLC pricing is atrocious. Season pass costs more than the game. And there are two of them. For some reason the DLC characters cost twice as much on PS4 compared to Steam and on Steam you can apparently buy just one costume for one character but that isn’t an option on PS4 because they are sold in bundles. If you wanted a wedding costume for the girls only, you’d have to buy two bundles… yikes. DOA6 is a fun package and as a filthy casual I was satisfied with my purchase. There’s eye candy and humor to make time fly by when kicking derrieres. As Marie Rose would say, “I believe I shall take out the garbage”.
  14. I bought Cadence of Hyrule at full price (well, got some discount with My Nintendo points) when it launched and it was well worth its price for me. Completed the game 100% once and enjoyed the game a lot. I'm planning to pick it up again and play as Link this time as I hear they've added achievements in a recent update. If you're looking for other suggestions for games that can be played in short bursts, maybe have a look at Baba Is You? The difficulty of the puzzles ramps up quite a bit at some point but boy is it satisfying to solve the levels. Played Baba for 55+ hours now and still haven't cleared all the levels.
  15. There's a demo available for Cadence of Hyrule in eShop now if you've been interested in trying out the game. I personally liked the game a lot and think it's one of the best games I've played this year.
