  1. WOW! This made my day! I played both GRID 2 and GRID Autosport on my previous ID so I know I'm in for a good time. The heavy online (and MP trophy) component never bothered me since I'm terrible at racing games anyway. (Me, meet wall... again... *sigh*) Still, I did enjoy it. Let's see how well GRID fares in this generation of gaming, yes? I think it will do well but that's just me.
  2. I'm running out of time to get Platinum 100 this month. It's not looking good. Problem is there is no clear-cut choice.

    Of course, it doesn't help when 73 out of 99 Plats have a "PSNProfiles Success Rate" of 50% or better... and 54 with a "success rate" of 80% or better. My mad dash for Plats went overboard to be sure. Not that it's all bad. I am the First in the World to Plat 8 To Glory and I have some tough ones on my record (5 Star Wrestling PS4, Ashes Cricket 2017).

    I just wish to change the scenery, so to speak. Now that my Internet is better, what do I do? At least when I was still Icebrand1270 I had a clear-cut choice for Plat 100. Not this time around. *sigh*

      idk if looking for choices but the sega mega drive is a good one or sleeping dogs definitive editon i had trouble finding the events but it isn't too hard difficulty wise.

  3. Same thought pattern. Plat would have been nice but I wasn't sure if it would be. I forsee many tempers and thrown controllers.
  4. Definitely a "blast from the past" to be proud of. I played that a lot when I was still Icebrand1270 and I believe we faced each other quite a bit back then. Sadly, my PS3 burned out in the MP server's "farewell month". Anyway, as Icebrand1270 my proudest was Don Bradman Cricket 14 (PS3 version) due to its toughness and obscurity. As OohYeah127, my proudest Plat is 8 To Glory, as I was the first in the world to earn it. Watching the Sony Rarity of 0.0% disappear and knowing I was the reason for it is a feeling I can't describe. All I kept saying was "It doesn't feel real." It still doesn't!
  5. It did. Kind of surprised that fact got lost in this hate-fest.
  6. Before the "deserving/undeserving" debate grows to epic proportions for the hundredth time, I'll just say that this will be on par with Mega Man Legacy Collection as one of the most difficult PSN 100s ever, due to its incredible old-school difficulty. That said, I am picking this one up as 2 of the first games I ever saw through to the end as a kid were Dracula's Curse and Castlevania The Adventure. Enter nostalgia, pain and younger fans realizing what old-school tough really is all about. I love it!
  7. Well, I'm enjoying my newfound faster WiFi. I downloaded Horizon Zero Dawn in 1 night instead of 7-30 nonstop days. Possible Plat 100? Possibly.

    Eventually I might get the courage to play MP like in olden days... maybe.

      Whoa everyone, behave and slow down! There have been some struggles. My router is a lot closer to my sister's smart tv (and my mother's smart tv) than my PS4, so they will (obviously) have a stronger connection. Especially when they insist on watching Dancing With The Stars highlights on YouTube. (BOOOO!) So I may have to wait to get beat up by "marks" who fight cheap on WWE 2K19... *sigh*

      I've been watching porn for 15 years, so it's nothing new.

       

      @Icebrand1270 People still watch that crap?

      Horray for fast internet! Happy for you. And HZD is a gem. Can't go wrong with making it your 100!

  8. Well everyone, my faster Internet is here! I downloaded a 9GB game in 1 hour when it would have been 5 days with our old router and "closet box" (read: 2007 model).

    It turns out a theory I had was correct: our "Stone Age" router thought old disconnected devices long-since gone were still part of the network. In other words, it couldn't tell that an old PS3, for instance, was no longer connected. So it thought there were 12 devices installed to it instead of 6. No wonder it broke down! I still feel bad my new PS4 that replaced the overheating one "broke the camel's back" so to speak.

    Our stuff was so "antique" to use the technician's words it took 3 hours to do the entire job. YIKES! But it's done. Now to find some WWE 2K19 players who love Internet critics and hate "power wrestlers" because it's the cool thing to do and beat them in Road To Glory Mode... or get beat when they fight cheaply. *evil laugh*

      I recently changed internet providers. Last year God of War took me a week to download, and I was so impatient to play that I kept playing every couple of hours to get through the next small section, until I got the popup that I needed to wait for it to download some more. :P It takes a lot of getting used to the same size games being fully downloaded within an hour or two.

  9. [Phoenix Wright Trilogy] Oh am I ever glad to own this one. A digital gem in the truest sense of the word. I have unfinished business with this series from my DS days in the early-mid 00s. One of many candidates for Platinum 100 (Read: many... too many... way too many.) One case down, many more to go!

  10. Next week my family and I get our Internet upgraded! Apparently it's not just router issues. Our equipment is also severely outdated. YIKES! Well, that explains the outrageous technician fee right there. Equipment that's 6 years old with a router that's 12 years old? Smells like Verizon all right!

    Anyway, enough Verizon hate! See you when my Internet is better!

      @ERGOPROXY-DECAY We have a "closet box" and ground pin. The type that went out of style with Verizon years ago, or so I hear. That's what I refer to.

      Glad to hear that your connection is finally getting fixed.

  11. Platinum 99 is Glass Masquerade! 100... IS... COMING! IT'S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN! (No I don't watch Game of Thrones but I AM listening to The Final Countdown right now... cheesy I know.) All are welcome to follow my posts as I pursue my return to 100 Platinum Trophies and complete my comeback as OohYeah127! INDEED!

  12. Plats 97 and 98 are Inksplosion (Vita) on April 12 and Norn9 Var Commons on April 15! My journey (back) to Plat 100 is almost complete!

  13. Blight-Queller Traveller I had some others today but these are clearly the most significant. The glitchiest trophies are out of the way but there is a long way to go (16 trophies remaining). I had this Plat when I was still Icebrand1270 back in 2013 but I have no illusions of doing this again under my current ID (OohYeah127). To be honest, I'd rather just enjoy "reliving" one of the best RPGs of all time. Still, who knows what the future may bring, yes?
  14. [Dragon Age Origins] Blight-Queller is mine! I used the guide's recommendation to work around that famed glitch and it is mine! Still a ways to go and I just want to enjoy one of the best RPGs of the PS3 era but I didn't want this glitching on me. YAHOO!

      Congrats! I was fortunate back in the day, so these didn't hit me. But a few of us were racing on pst.org to be first to plat there, and a couple of them got hit with this, and with Traveler troubles.

      @IntroPhenom @starcrunch061 Great story but technical nightmare to be sure. I did this way back in my early days as Icebrand1270 and suffered no problems with Blight-Queller. (I still remember the trophy showing up as I died at the front door of Fort Drakon. Don't ask me how I remember that.) Guess I got lucky. As for Traveler, I got that on my second runthrough when I was prepping for the Awakening DLC. It became Plat 35 (and Trophy 6,000) in 2013 after I returned to it 4 years later and was one of my best moments as Icebrand1270.

      As OohYeah127 now, I have no illusions of getting the Plat and I just want to enjoy one of the all-time greats. (Just my opinion, of course... as Alistair would say.) If only I had the time to play as each origin once, something I never did on my old ID. Well, maybe after Plat 100!

      @IntroPhenom @starcrunch061 I now have Defender, Traveler and Ultimate Sacrifice as well! I'm on a roll!

  15. Plats 93-96 are the PS4 and Vita versions of Super Weekend Mode and Peasant Knight, all earned on April 9, 2019! The Road to Platinum 100 keeps accelerating!
