  1. And so it happened again! For the second time as OohYeah127, I had a Triple Plat Day! July 10th of 2018 saw me earn 3 Platinums! And here they are: 33. Toro 7/10/2018 at 9:50 AM A bullfighting game that is extremely repetitive. It's all about cape pass combos with proper timing to complete bullfights to lead to an off-screen QTE kill. The game was 15 dollars when originally released and when I bought it on my old profile (Icebrand1270) but was 3 dollars by the time I acquired it on my current profile, a much more suitable cost. 34. Nightmares from the Deep 3: Davy Jones 7/10/2018 at 4:13 PM One of several Artifex Mundi hidden object games ported from PC and Steam to PS4 and XB1 console formats, this is the conclusion of the trilogy of museum curator Sarah Black using her intelligence and resourcefulness to outwit and defeat the legendary pirate Davy Jones. Hidden objects, Mahjong and other minigames are what it's about. The graphics are very much like a painting but not artsy or snobbish. Good music as well. 35. Late Shift 7/10/2018 at 10:33 PM This game gained great fame as a "choose your own adventure movie" almost immediately upon release, and understandably so. A classic action movie plot with 7 possible endings and a "film reel" that cannot be paused or rewound, this was a definite thrill ride. Whether there will be more of this format of FMV games or this remains an oddity remains to be seen, but this was special. I'll take a brief break for now to refocus. Then it's back to the hunt!
  2. 3 Plats in 1 Day for the 2nd time as OohYeah127! Plat 33 is Toro at 9:50 AM, Plat 34 is Nightmares from the Deep 3 at 4:13 PM and Plat 35 is Late Shift at 10:33 PM, all on July 10th of 2018! Leave a day to myself and this is what happens... AGAIN! INDEED!

  3. I HATE how bad my Internet is in the summer. Is all of my hometown (Staten Island, New York... part of New York City by the way) on at once all day and night? I downloaded King of Fighters collection yesterday, a 1GB game. It took me 10 hours... and I usually am bad enough at a super-slow 1GB per hour normally! HELP!

      I sometimes wonder if extreme temps mess with things. When we had a few days of much colder than usual weather last winter, our Internet got weird. 

       

      Other than that, use rest mode. It does help.

      Call for a troubleshoot. It's possible the cable is torn somewhere. 

  4. Thanks for the follow!

      Not a problem! 

       

      Always good to meet nice new people here. 

  5. It's been some time posting as getting serious computer time is not easy anymore for me. Anyway, here's some recent Plats: 30. Cat Quest 6-2-2018 31. Lara Croft GO (PS4) 6-4-2018 32. Nightmares From The Deep 2: The Siren's Call 6-27-2018 I have now earned 3 or more Plats a month for 6 consecutive months! Cat Quest is a game with swords, dodging, magic, dungeons, and more cat puns than you can shake two paws at! Plenty of humor... and plenty of action! And a sequel announced too! Purrtastic! Lara Croft GO follows in the footsteps of Hitman GO with a sliding puzzle diorama setup. It's also easier as hints are permitted this time. Nightmares From The Deep 2 is one of Artifex Mundi's many hidden object games ported to PS4 and one of a trilogy where a museum curator named Sarah Black looks to use her intelligence and resourcefulness to defeat the legendary sea demon and patron of pirates Davy Jones. The games can be easier with a walkthrough and most require 2 playthroughs, as is well known, due to alternate ways to solve hidden object puzzles (Mahjong in this case). Note that these games cost 15 dollars now when they once cost 10, and not the first price increase if you go back to their days on Steam from what I hear. Crazy, I tell you. Next up, you ask? Trying to Plat Horizon Zero Dawn... and just 8 trophies away as well! A week, perhaps? We shall see!
  6. Some exciting news: one of the guys I've had the privilege of doing wrestling events with as an announcer has been signed by Lucha Underground! Don't know how many fans watch it but very cool to see a man so talented who has won a lot of titles in the New York and New Jersey wrestling scene make it! Congrats to the man now known as XO Lishus!

      He'll be debuting in the next week or two according to what we're hearing!

  7. Plat 32 is Nightmares From The Deep 2: The Siren's Call! I figured I'd take a break from Horizon Zero Dawn to avoid burnout and go through some hidden objects... and Mahjong... to get a 3rd Plat this month. That's 3 or more Plats each month for 6 consecutive months! YAHOO!

    Well, back to Horizon Zero Dawn!

      I loved listening to the anouncer shouting MONTANA REACREATIONS!!! at the end of each sentence haha when I collected the animal figurines and interacted with the holograms

      Haha I wasn't expecting you to :P. It was just a bad joke ;). Imo just choose an avatar from a game that you liked the most

      @PooPooBlast, if that picture was somehow 'temmiefied', I'd use it.  That face.

      I wish I was good at editing! Would've done for you xD

      Would've done one*

  9. [Horizon Zero Dawn] Can anyone give me any good advice on when to access the Frozen Wilds area (The Cut)? And at what XP Level? I have the Complete Edition as you might imagine. Currently at Level 40 but only past Maker's End (and saving Meridian) due to lots of side questing and collectible hunting. Unorthodox to be sure. But I wish to make the final story trophy the last trophy for Plat like I did for LA Noire on my old account (Icebrand1270).

      @Elvick_ I talked to a man who gave me the quest. I know the game recommends Level 30 and many guides recommend Level 50.

    3. LuciaRosethorn

      LuciaRosethorn

      I think I was level 20, I was under leveled but i was still able to kill most things. It was a good way to level up and I just wanted the DLC weapons and armor. xD

    4. Icebrand1270

      Icebrand1270

      @LuciaRosethorn You completely read my intentions here. I want a cut of the riches of "The Cut" (the name of the region in the Frozen Wilds DLC). Lame pun, I know. And as I said, I'm not in any rush to take this story to the end, what with my unorthodox roadmap to Platinum. So if a DLC side trip gives me nice gear and some fun gameplay I'm all for it.

  10. [Horizon Zero Dawn] Maker's End complete... and a LOT of other stuff too... as in Level 39 already. All Tallnecks overridden, all Bandit Camps cleared, a King saved and all the... coffee cups found? (Ancient Vessels blah blah blah!)

    Aloy: "Are you sure people didn't just drink out of them?"

    WINNER!

      Ahh sorry dude, haven't played the dlc so idk. I do have it purchased though and as a reference I'm lvl 52 atm. 

       

      Oh and that's not strange at all actually :). I did it like this with the Witcher 3 and a bunch of other games!

    3. Icebrand1270

      Icebrand1270

      @PooPooBlast I see. It's also nice to see I'm not the only one with such a mindset. I grew up with RPGs so grinding is nothing to me. Now I'm at Level 40 with all Cauldrons done... though I can assure you that Thunderjaws are no joke!

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Duuude thunderjaws are such a joy to hunt down. Nothing like blasting its missiles with a shockwave arrow, then grabbing the disc launcher that falls off and go nuts xD

  11. [Horizon Zero Dawn] 21 trophies in just over 3 days. Many more to go! Now to stop all this needless dying so I can see what happens next! No spoilers please! Damn those flying enemies... damn you! Aloy has quickly become one of my favorite heroes in gaming. Deadly to enemies, compassionate to friends, sarcastic to many and sassy the whole way round. Not your typical hero... and that's a good thing!

    1. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Love love love the awkwardness between her and Erend. Poor Erend though xD ( he low-key likes her I assume but she is either innocent and not catching on or she's playing dumb on purpose xD). 

    2. Icebrand1270

      Icebrand1270

      No spoilers! Though probably playing dumb on purpose. I get the feeling pickup lines would be greeted with flaming arrows! Hands off fellas!

  12. Thank you for the follow! Decided to follow you as well, if you don't mind!

  13. Finally bought Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition on sale for $20 at the local GameStop. Passed it up when it came out due to the fact that all people were talking about were the graphics... and we have seen great graphics disguise poor games numerous times in the past. When I heard it had an Action-RPG base and an interesting story I finally decided to do it. Having a great time so far! 6 trophies down, many to go!

      I think what I enjoyed the most about HZD was that it surprised me with its story since I didn't expect it to have a good one! I'm used to playing open world games that most of the time, have an okay story but clearly there was a great emphasis here to make it great. 

       

      Hope you like it :)

    3. Icebrand1270

      Icebrand1270

      @PooPooBlast I just hope I get better at the combat (I'm subtle like a sledgehammer) so I can enjoy this story even more. Call me crazy but I really enjoy Aloy's sarcasm. Good examples include "Who me?" when foes spot her or "Should have brought a cart" when her inventory is full. Though I am choosing compassionate responses in conversations.

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Haha, the combat can be tricky initially but give it time and you'll get better with the more encounters you experience

       

      And I love her sassiness! I stuck with that throughout my playthrough lol. 

  14. Same here. Finally decided to buy the Complete Edition of Horizon Zero Dawn on sale for 20 dollars at the local GameStop. Didn't try this when it first showed up because all I heard people talk about was how great the graphics looked. Anyone who knows me knows that graphics mean absolutely nothing to me as we have seen great graphics disguise poor games in the past (The Order 1886, EA UFC series, Everybody's Gone To The Rapture, just to name a few). When I delved deeper into my research I found an Action-RPG base with an interesting story, so I decided to take the plunge while it was on sale. So far, I'm having a great time! 6 trophies down, many more to go!
