  1. Now that I have the "Everyone Dies" trophy for Man of Medan, I think the next logical step is "Everyone Lives". Fingers Crossed!

  2. Thanks for the follow! Decided to follow you as well!

      If you're wondering, I deleted that status update I posted in case my relatives saw it. Shared computer and all. Not my brightest idea. Not worth an argument on a strained family dynamic.

      I don't blame you.  Covering one's ass in any situation is always the best advice.

      Temmie is a great guy, you should of followed him sooner,  the second you laid eyes on his beautiful countenance.

  3. [Man of Medan] After starting over a few times I got the "Everyone Dies Ending" Trophy! *evil laugh*

    Turned out to be a good thing I looked this up as I would have screwed it up. Thank you PS+ Cloud Save!

  4. I just started playing this and this intro song ROCKS!!!
  5. [Man of Medan] I decided to take a chance with this but I don't know what ending I want... first that is. Platinum is not too important as I don't have strong enough wi-fi or enough time for an Online Co-Op session. Still, I feel directionless even after looking up some info online -- for 10 minutes or so before my wi-fi was interrupted by a relative's Netflix binge. *sigh* Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

  6. I'm thinking of playing Man of Medan but I'm not a big horror person. In fact, I've been referred to as "scared of the dark" by some in my town for how little I watch of it. Judgmental... never mind that I shun most modern-day television as it is.

    Anyway, how is it? I know it's from the creators of Until Dawn but I never got to play that one, so comparisons won't help. I'm interested due to it possibly being different from what I normally play.

    After all, after getting 6 Plats in 1 Day of the Ratalaika variety, I think a change of scenery is in order. (As if I didn't have enough "ridiculous" Plats already.)

    1. Icebrand1270


      P.S. Trophies are Semi-Unimportant as my Internet probably couldn't last long enough for the co-op trophies. And I'll probably go for the "all dead" first. And why not? This IS horror!

  7. OOOOOOHHHHHHH BELMONT YEAH!!!! (Why, what did you think I was going to say?) What a thrill to see 3 of the first games I ever completed in my childhood: Dracula's Curse and the 2 GB Castlevania games. I didn't return to Castlevania until the PS3 era (lame I know). That said, I had beaten GB games before Dracula's Curse but it was the first NES game I completed, holding a special place in my heart as a result. Well, back to modern times... but not before loading my "save state" of a Dracula's Curse ending one more time! Memories... 😂
  8. A rare PSN 100%... for they are certainly rare... and usually difficult retro collections... to add to my collection:

    Castlevania Anniversary Collection! Very happy with this one! For those who don't know, 3 of the first games I saw through to the end were Dracula's Curse (NES) and the 2 Castlevania GB games. Although I had beaten GB games by then, the first NES games I beat was Castlevania 3 Dracula's Curse. After those 3, I never played a Castlevania game again until the PS3 era (not the best impression). Then I went retro with this and Castlevania Requiem.

    All I ask is that we keep the "deserving/undeserving of Plat" debate elsewhere. Plenty of threads for that. Please. I took enough heat for "preaching peace" when the list was announced... or would have if people noticed my posts on that thread of hate.

    But enough of that. Time to play Bloody Tears and Vampire Killer... hehehe!

      @cckerberos Sorry for wording it wrong. The PS3 games are what left the foul taste in my mouth. Dracula's Curse (NES) holds a special place in my heart.

    4. Honor_Hand


      Awesome 100%, congrats! I'm looking to get this Castlevania Collection at some point too. Can't beat the retro greatness of these particular titles. :)

  9. Plats 107 and 108 are the PS4 and Vita versions of Zeroptian Invasion!

    Time to Plat PS4 version was 2 months and 4 days.

    Time to Plat Vita version was under 15 minutes.

    This is... crazy. Just crazy.

    Now back to Mass Effect 2... not that I have a chance at Plat on that one. Better chance at Miranda Lawson and Jack getting along!

  10. Platinum 106 is the Vita version of Vegas Party! After 5 ridiculously easy Plats last month I score a tough and obscure Plat with a terrible game. Plat was unobtainable for over a year until the game was patched to alter the requirements for 2 trophies. I'm also among the first 10 to earn this Plat, just the 3rd time this has happened (8 To Glory, Floor Kids). 7th time I'm on a "1st 50 To Plat" list since starting over as OohYeah127 in 2017 as well. Onward!

  11. I just preordered WWE 2K20 at the local GameStop. Cover features Becky Lynch and Roman Reigns. Showcase Mode returns featuring Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch and Bayley. MyCareer can be played as male or female and Mixed Tag matches return. DLC will focus more on Showcase (called WWE 2K20 Originals) and new controls have been promised. Tower Mode returns as well and features a story-based Roman Reigns Tower. (At least they're saying they have new stuff like they forgot to advertise... or advertise at all... last year!) On October 22 I'll see just how cheap people can play online with the "overhauled" controls, yez?

  12. 2K announced on their site (through a REALLY dumb 20-second teaser trailer show legends' shirts and robes) that there will be a First Look Trailer for WWE 2K20 on August 5!

    Good to see... but another tight window for reserving. Self-sabotage again on the ad campaign most likely as well I imagine. Totally expected given the arrogance of both WWE and 2K. (Believe it or not, there was a rumor going around that there would be no WWE game this year... most likely started by AEW. But let's not get off-topic, yes?)

    The cover wrestler will be revealed then. If you're wondering how the rumors about Becky Lynch being on the cover got started, they seem to stem from earlier rumors of a "Women's Evolution" Showcase Mode featuring female wrestlers from the "Diva" era to today. It seems like just another false Internet rumor but I wouldn't mind if this one became true.

    I just hope my Wi-Fi holds a connection this year. I know, I'm dreaming...

      Just saw the trailer and the Internet was right. So it's Becky Lynch and Roman Reigns on the cover. Nothing can ever go on without receiving critics. People are hating on Roman Reigns being on the cover already. 


      So apparently there'll be a 4HW (Four Horsewomen) mode in the game. I think it'll have to do with the women's evolution as well and I believe it'll be a good mode. 

    3. Icebrand1270


      @ee28max Roman Reigns could save a cat from a tree and they would still find fault with him. Not that I'm his biggest fan but it's gotten seriously out of hand. Anyway, I'm curious as to these "overhauled" controls we are promised. As one of the few who likes the current setup (except for reversal limitations) this could be bad. People online are cheap enough as it is. At least Mixed Tag matches return. Makes sense since there will be both male and female MyCareer modes this time.

    4. ee28max


      Well that is true. Things have gotten seriously out of hand. The Mixed Tag matches will be fun. I believe there's a Mixed Match Challenge tournament as well? Also, a lot of people have been begging for GM Mode to return, but as long it's 2K Sports, I have high doubts it ever will. People have also been asking to swap MyCareer mode for Road To WrestleMania. Not sure if it's true, but I've heard that MyCareer mode is nothing more than bore fest and a tiresome grind.  

  13. I want to try Detroit Become Human but I know Quantic Dream's well-earned reputation for horrible controls. I rented it via GameFly at one point but didn't play it because the only person who gave me a straight answer about the controls was a GameStop salesman, and I was completely convinced he was just trying to make a sale. Can anyone here tell me if the controls are like Heavy Rain or did Quantic Dream come to their senses? I'm referring to control schematic and NOT Platinum difficulty or number of playthroughs or nature of the trophy list. If the controls are like Heavy Rain I'm NOT touching this.

      @Platisfaction I think it would be an encyclopedia of things that didn't work for me and a blank screen for things that did. Turning your head to see actions, keeping the controller level 24-7, QTEs 24-7. It took me over 5 YEARS to Plat the PS3 version when I was still Icebrand due to this nonsense. Now as OohYeah127 I am hesitant to give Quantic Dream another chance.

      On an unrelated note it's good to see someone from ages past. Don't know if you remember me from elsewhere or not.

    3. Platisfaction


      Well, they improved a lot of things regarding the controls, but I do remember having some minor issues in the first one or two hours playing Detroit. Maybe you can test it first? Maybe use shareplay and a different account? On the unrelated note: :hmm: I'm afraid I have no idea. Can you give a hint? Or two?

    4. Icebrand1270


      @Platisfaction Perhaps it's more like I recognize you from another forum. Was hoping to avoid using the name if possible so as not to stir up any... nightmare bells around here. I was on another trophy forum for many years before crossing over to here. Long-gone it is now. Had a checklist that was quite popular that I wanted to transfer over here before I lost my ID to a bank card hack in 2017.

      In any event, thanks for the tip. I suppose there's no harm in trying to erase my 0%.

  14. Hello again. My Internet has been so bad that I forgot to speak about the 4 Plats so far this month. Plats 101-104 are Word Wheel by POWGI (PS4 and Vita) on July 1 and Uly 2, Crossovers by POWGI (PS4) on July 21 and Super Tennis Blast on July 22! I'm also among the first 25 to Plat the NA version of Super Tennis Blast. CRAZY!

    And just when I told myself no more easy Plats... SHAME!

    On the up side,,this is the 6th time I've had a "1st 50 to Plat Moment" as OohYeah127. The others are Metropols Lux Obscua (PS4 and Vita- NA versions), Vegas Party (PS4), Floor Kids (7th in world) and 8 to Glory (1st in World). INCREDIBLE!

    Hopefully my Internet improves, probably when the teenagers return to school in September. One can always hope, yes?

  15. It's the summer. That means my Internet turns to complete garbage. I was hoping this year would be different. Add that to the numerous things I get wrong on a daily basis. *sigh*

    1. damon8r351


      All them kiddos out of school. 😂

    2. Icebrand1270


      @damon8r351.True.. My relatives and I finally got a router and "closet box" upgrade after having the same one since 2007. Of course, that is only one factor. Provider, volume, weather and many others factor in.

      It's been almost 100 degrees for days in New York City so everyone is bound to be indoors "taunting" each other online. Add that I live in a complex of 7 apartment buildings with roughly 600 apartments and you can see the volume issues right there.

      This makes me glad the internet wasn’t a very big thing when I was growing up. I mean, we had dial-up, but Prodigy was pretty much all there was at the time. Video games were really just for me burning time in the morning until my friends woke up.

      Maybe if this whole 5G thing pans out, your setup seems like the ideal scenario for providing another internet option and you’ll have to share your connection with less neighbors.
