  1. Definitely Pinball FX 3. Sure, I'm on a mad dash to get back to my former trophy level after losing my old ID to a bank card hack in 2017 (as evidenced by my abundance of easy Plats) but sometimes I need a break from such things. So I slow the pace with this one. There is a Non-Platinum trophy list for this game but an extremely tough one (though I do have some trophies for it) so I mostly play to see how good I can be on the leaderboards. And I take part in the Matchup leagues and have actually done surprisingly well in them too!
  2. Plat 86 is the Vita version of Word Sudoku by POWGI! I now have 25 Plats in the first 3 months of 2019! Unbelievable!

  3. I decided to get back to a more positive frame of mind today. I recently updated my Trophy Cabinet and may continue to do so. I also plan to return to a long-dormant trophy checklist... time permitting.

    Last... and certainly not least... I have to update my About Me to reflect that another wrestler from the promotion and trainer I announce for (ECPW) made the "big leagues"! Sonny Kiss, previously XO Lishus of Lucha Underground was signed by All Elite a couple of months ago and I usually list which ECPW alumni "made it" but I didn't put him down yet. (Yikes!) I believe I need to correct that!

      Honestly man, sometimes we just gotta be able to create our fun. I do the same thing every day these days and I have to go out of my way to kinda freshen up the mood so good for you!

    2. Icebrand1270

      Icebrand1270

      @PooPooBlast Exactly. As for my checklist, this will take a few visits as I haven't updated it in over a year. Yikes!

      This reminds me I also have a checklist that I am supposed to update at some point in my life. ūüėÖ

  4. Update on my Internet situation: my fears have been confirmed on multiple fronts.

    The router IS the issue. After all, it was given to us back in 2007.

    Unfortunately, the technician costs from Verizon to replace a router are... outrageous. I can raise the cash in a month's time (I think). Until then, I am destined to have bad Internet like Nikki Bella from WWE is destined to "die all alone" (sorry... couldn't resist... hehehe).

    It's okay everyone. Just don't expect online matches out of me(OohYeah127) soon... or ever. I've cheated death more than once (varicose vein ruptures) so I know there are things much more important than this.

    I'll do what I can in the meantime and rent GameFly games... hopefully with patches less than 10GB... I hope. Always a surprise, yes?

      @Honor_Hand Sounds about right to me. That is their nature. A fine time to be strapped for cash with vile tech support and pushy salesmen. So long as my health holds out I will be fine. There are more important things to tend to right now in my life at this time honestly. Let a relative with a more even temperament deal with Verizon. I'll deal with my more pressing concerns.

      @ERGOPROXY-DECAY @DamagingRob @kingdrake2Damn. I pay $80 for 150 but with a 250GB data cap. The cap is what kills me. The only unlimited plan we have here is $170 with 1Gbps.

      I was referring to them replacing your Modem, no questions asked. Lol. I've never had unlimited service anywhere. Usually, it's only 250 GB. Right now, though, we have a bundled special and get 1 TB per month. That and the cable are about $145 after another extra charge they recently added.. Supposed to be $90 per month, and then they tack on all these extra fees. :shakefist:

  5. Plat 85 is Mixups by POWGI (PS4 version)! In spite of my terrible Internet I managed to download a 150MB game in... 1 hour. (Yep, that's NOT a misprint. Take a moment if you have to.)

    My relatives have FINALLY listened to me and we shall call Verizon for a troubleshoot on Monday. We suspect the router needs a replacement as our router is the same one we have been using since we started with Verizon. This was back in 2007, before Verizon was approved for cable television in New York City. (Example of my problems: when scanning for my router with my new PS4, it was unable to find it and I had to input the router's name manually.) Sadly, it took my sister's Netflix failing on her to "wake up" my family to this. At least it's done. See you when my Wi-Fi is better!

      Most probably it will! We've been through 2 routers since 2009 and it does makes a difference. Although we also switched plans in the process.. 

       

      But grats! 

       

      And one final thing is your PS4 next to your modem? That makes a huge difference as well. If it's close go for an ethernet connection

      Congrats on the Platinum! :)

       

      Glad you're moving into resolving that connection issue you seem to be having. Hopefully, no more slow Internet for you soon. ;)

       

      As for me, I still have to live with mine for who knows how long ;-;

      Nice work! I was having issues with mine a year or two ago. Think they said we had a "data leak" outside, which they fixed and it's been working fine since. 

  6. Thanks for the follow, nyaa~ :3

    From now on, we'll be shitty internet brothers haha lol xD

     

    Just kidding, I'll be following you back and hearing about your trophy hunting endeavors. ;)

      THANK YOU! You are very cool (I would say cool cat but I do not wish to be lame). I'm glad you were able to get a PS4 at last! Sorry we seem to be comparing "Internet horror stories". Not fun. Right now I'm trying to mark PS+ games for future download... distant future download.

    2. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      Heehee, thanks. It was long overdue but someone from here helped me get one. It would have been impossible for me otherwise. "Internet horror stories", I'm liking that title. What I do is set games to download and forget about them while the console downloads them. Most likely I'll end up plat something else while it finishes downloading. xP

       

      See you around, man. :D 

      **Platinuming something else

  7. It's frustrating to have all these games and absolutely none of them on your HDD. Especially when you are downloading at 5GB per DAY. (Yes you heard that right. Take a moment if you have to.) I just bought a new PS4 to replacean overheating one and now I have nothing on it. I want my normal super-slow speed of 1GB per hour back! At least then I know I can download 1 game every week instead of every month.

      @KingGuy420 I lost my mind over my bad Internet a long time ago, as my frequent rants can certainly attest! That said, I don't believe I have ever seen even 3GB per hour. I would probably die of shoch were that to occur.

    3. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      I feel you. Currently downloading games from PS+ on a slow connection. I believe I get like around 4-7 GB per day. Depends on the connection. It sometimes gets jittery and falls death all of the sudden. It can take weeks before a game finishes downloading.ūüėÖ

    4. Icebrand1270

      Icebrand1270

      @Honor_Hand I strongly believe all those long overnights of slow download speeds took its toll on my PS4. 3 to 5 days just for 1 big game. And people wonder why I prefer B-list, C-list and indies. And to think I'll likely go from 15 to Zero Plats this month because of it.

  8. Better Wi-Fi. Whether it is an ethernet cable, a new router, an (overpriced) troubleshoot visit from Verizon FIOS or moving to a better Wi-Fi area, I'll take it at this point. Can't get any of it but I'll tell you what else I can't get: a download that goes faster than 5GB per DAY! (Yes you heard that right. Take a moment if you have to.) Don't know what happened but I want my regular super-slow speed of 1GB per hour back! I just bought a new PS4 to replace a busted one and I have nothing on it because of this!
  9. My NEW Slim 1TB PS4 is up and running. Now comes the long and painful process of putting my digital library of games on it.

    Hoping for 2GB per hour (yep, that bad a max speed). Dreading to see 2GB per day... like today. Trying to put a digital copy of WWE 2K19 in... 11GB in so far and 41GB to go.

    I figure with my horrible wifi, I'll see zero Plats this month. Talk about a crash from 15 last month. *sigh*

  10. I now have a NEW Slim 1TB PS4 to replace the one that was breaking down! YAHOO!

    Now comes the long process of updating... 5 hours for a 500MB update. My wifi shows up to work less than Brock Lesnar from WWE does... *sigh*

    1. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Lol even better less than Brock Lesnar shows up to UFC ;)

       

      But happy you got a replacement! I just bought a pro which came with a 1tb storage

    2. Icebrand1270

      Icebrand1270

      Update is ready to install... after 5 hours and 3 pauses due to "Wi-fi Connection Lost". Such is my life. Hopefully the rest will go smoothly... but probably not.

  11. Plat 84 is Mixups by POWGI (Vita version)! I close the book on February of 2019 with a record 15 PLATINUM TROPHIES IN A SINGLE MONTH!!! 14 easy Plats plus Ashes Cricket (2017) were responsible for this blazing inferno! Never will I see this again!

      That's a lot of Platinums in a single month ^^

      That's a lot in just one month. :)

      Congrats!

  12. Plat 82 is Daggerhood (Vita) on February 25 and Plat 83 is Devious Dungeon (PS4) on February 27! 14 PLATS this month! With one day left, do I rest or go hard? What a question most trophy hunters would enjoy thinking about!

  13. Sadly, my beloved PS4 is starting to go bad. I had to give up WWE 2K19 due to overheat crashes. I should have a new unit in place by April or May.

      If you are planning on getting a new one anyways, I would watch a tear-down video of the PS4 and try to clear any dust on the motherboard, heatsinks and fans.

  14. 2 MORE Plats since I last posted! Code Realize Wintertide Miracles (PS4) on February 18 is #80 and Daggerhood (PS4) on February 24 is #81! This makes 12 Platinum Trophies for February of 2019! 11 easy games plus Ashes Cricket fuelling this inferno! CRAZY!

  15. Platinum 79 Ashes Cricket (PS4 - 2017) 2/13/2019 I suddenly realize I've had quite a few Plats since posting in this thread. I believe I haven't posted here since Plat 50 (Shenmue). Since then I've gotten some interesting Plats (such as Floor Kids), some tough Plats (such as the PS4 version of 5 Star wrestling) but mostly easy ones. so far I have 10 Plats this month... but none as prestigious as this one! I had the Plat for Don Bradman cricket 14 on my old ID (Icebrand1270), so I figured I would try for this as OohYeah127. The controls are easier this time around but much of the trophy list is glitched, which explains why it took me over 10 months to Plat this game. This Plat was unobtainable for the first 3 months or so due to New cap being glitched. The glitch was eventually fixed but the trophy guide here points out 7 possible trophy glitches. Be wary if you go after this one. As for the difficulty of the list itself, it has everything you would expect from a sports game: training, career, grinding, skill, luck, online and so on. The good news is many of the "grind" trophies can be done with 2 controllers and some of the other trophies can be earned through simulation. The lone online trophy is for playing and completing 5 matches but you don't need to win any of them. I almost forgot! I wish to thank @EnforcerAwakens for his amazing trophy guide, for which I would never have gotten this Plat without. THANK YOU! With a Platinum "success rate" in the 7% area, this replaces 5 Star wrestling (PS4 version) as my rarest Plat ever as OohYeah127! I'm also just the 86th to earn this Plat and the 3rd American! WOW! What next? No clue as always! Time will tell I guess!
