  1. While I agree with the majority of your points, I think the bold bit above is definitely a stretch. The millions of people who managed to get a PS5 as well as the millions of people who play primarily on PS4 and use the stores/buy games digitally is probably far, far, far higher than the PS3 and Vita stores ever reached even in their peaks. A considerable amount of people to Sony is the 4.5 millions people who bought their latest console, not the likely sub 200,000 people playing on a console 2 generations out of date. As much as I understand the annoyance about this, and I do think it's disrespectful from Sony with the short window before it does inevitably close, it doesn't really affect me that much as I played the majority of the games I wanted to from that generation back in my 360 days. Also the Vita store is like 90% shovelware and trophy games anyway at this point, I think there's probably like 2/3 must play games on the system tops. I get people are annoyed, but they must understand that this was always an inevitability. Sony don't want people buying their 15 year old consoles second hand for 60 quid from CEX, when they could stop that being an option and force people to invest in a PS4 at the absolute minimum. Plus, you're not actually losing anything that you already own in the 15 years you've had to be able to buy whatever you want from the PS3 store. In my (probably unpopular) opinion, if you haven't bought a PS3/Vita game already, then you don't really need it and won't be missing out when the store goes down.
  2. There is actually a way to cheese this one, and I definitely used it when I realised just how long I would be playing this mind numbing game. If you fill in the entire puzzle with the black squares and then 'fix' any mistakes, it completes the puzzle for you by removing all incorrect squares. Will save hours of grinding, but unfortunately won't make the game any more fun. Also likely a fast track to carpal tunnel with how many squares there are to fill. Good luck on the rain day, and the Fill-a-Pix trick is there if you need it. πŸ‘
  3. Sounds like they want to put the final nail in this game and get it over with to me. Which fucking idiot at Squeenix or Crystal Dynamics said, 'I know what we should do to our boring, grindy game that no one is playing. MAKE IT EVEN MORE BORING AND GRINDY!' Seriously, these are a bunch of fucking clowns. Taken what is likely one of the biggest IP's in the world at the minute, and somehow managed to fuck it up at every turn. You're making the right decision. I'm getting my last trophy and won't be touching the next gen version even if it autopops. Absolutely garbage game.
  4. I was pretty certain PS5 to PS4 autopops weren't a think, so I'm actually surprised you managed to get this to work at all. Although, based on the trophies you haven't yet earned on the PS4 version, is it even worth trying to autopop. You're still going to have to play up until the second to last area in regards the main quest and fully complete all territories? If you do end up having to do that, it seems you've just created a 70-100 hour grind for collectibles and main quests, with no trophies to earn along the way.
  5. Yeah I can't see why not. The forums are generally for talking about whatever you want as long as you're in the right board for it. It's just that the people you'll be talking to are trophy hunters rather than just GTA fans.
  6. I'm expecting to see this soon from EA if the Mass Effect remaster goes down well, which I think it probably will. They've not really put any of their properties into the remake/remaster arena yet, so I think Mass Effect is a prime example of them testing the waters to see how it performs. Give it a year or so and I fully expect the same Legendary Edition for Dead Space which would be brilliant news. Never got to play the 3rd but I heard it was pretty shite.
  7. Both very doable platinums, with the first being a decent bit easier than the second. Would highly recommend both of them, very relaxing music and good brain teaser while still being a good chill out game after work. For that price, you really can't go wrong.
  8. I've played and platinumed Ghost of Tsushima and I can't see anything in the list that looks even slightly out of place to me. Every story trophy is in the right order and there doesn't look to be any of the ability related trophies earned before it would be possible to do so either. List looks perfectly legit to me, which makes me think there may be something the CRT can see that we can't. If this isn't the case, then I would say this is wrongfully flagged, and the reporter should definitely be questioned for more information than they've provided.
  9. Not PS5 to PS4 though.
  10. Just a question to the people who still ask this on every single thread; has this worked on any single dual generation game so far? To my knowledge, the answer is no. So take what you will from that.
  11. This whole thread is simultaneously hilarious and painful at the same time, who gives a fuck whether people call them free or not? OT - Played the tutorial of this game last night and instantly deleted. Game is very likely trash, as expected. Still happy with the free PS5 version of Control though! 😎
  12. I just finished Hitman 1 the other week and am currently working on 2 so should be able to give a fairly good estimate on those two. Hitman 1 took me about 40 hours according to PS5 play time. The sequel is probably going to be about the same, plus I have to play through all the Legacy pack on that as well. With both of the first two games (excluding legacy content) coming to about 80-90 hours, I would guess Hitman 3 to probably be around the same ball park of 40 hours for the base game. It's likely a 100 hour plus completion based on this maths but I could be wrong. I do think that if you've played Hitman 2 and completed it, you can transfer progress via a IOI account and autopop most of them for Hitman 3 but it doesn't sound like you've played it.
  13. I had this same issue, but alcohol wipes seemed to clean it right off. Mine weren't blue-ish though, just general dirt from hands in the dotted patterns on the back of the pad. I wonder if potentially a damp cloth would be better than just a wipe, might be worth a try.
  14. I will have a look when I get on the Playstation tonight for the request. You need Himmelstein, Siberia and Singapore (Hantu Port) packs installed as they're the ones with the co-op trophies.
  15. Took me 3 playthroughs, and I don't recall using a guide at the time. As the above says, bad playthrough, good playthrough, quiet playthrough. Really good game imo, hoping to pick up Afterparty at some point for more from this dev.
  16. I just got the trophies the other day but Hitman 2 is my game that I'm playing at the minute, as in I literally started playing it last night. Basically, I will be on the game a lot over the next couple of weeks, so if people desperately require these trophies, hit me up on PSN and I'll help out if I'm available. HelixNebula_x A run through of all 3 missions not caring about challenges or anything shouldn't take more than 20 minutes.
  17. Yeah I had similar issues where I had to finish a DLC and reload back to before I did it, before taking on the next one. The crashes were 5/6/7 times a quest. Very frustrating, and made all of them slightly more difficult due to dropping levels and found loot every time.
  18. I would love this, I absolutely smoked the boys last time we played. 4 impostor games, 4 impostor wins 😎
  19. I don't yet have the plat on this and I have played probably around 80 hours of this with my SO. There is no way this can be done in 15 hours, even if every possible trophy that can be was unlocked on another players farm (which neither of the disputers have tried to argue despite this being a well known trick). I have everything but the farm expansion trophy, and I likely have another 20-30 hours ahead of me before I can unlock that. Since 'Big Farms' was released the length of time required for the plat is near enough double what it was before. Plus only one of them would be playing with the farm boost considering that the other person would be the owner of the farm where you can't earn a boost meaning there would be even more time required to get the necessary level ups I'm not exactly sure how it's been cheated but something definitely doesn't line up with this or the other Farm Together dispute. Also, if this is TheGangsterRats friend who he claims they played the entire game in co-op with, then their playtimes should match and of course, they don't
  20. Whats the end goal for the amount of plats you want to pop for the rain day? I think I might give one of these a try once I've hit 300 plats, because it seems like it could be fun. Well done on the (nearly) plats!
  21. Yeah feel free to add me to this list too, sounds like a lot of fun. Will be checking out these videos when I'm home from work.😁
  22. Okay... so even maintaining the top post has become too much of a chore for me at this point, when all I really want to do is review the plats that I've gotten and give insight into them for anyone who might be considering playing them. Double this with the fact that I did actually manage to get myself a PS5, and I'm spending a lot more of time earning trophies rather than talking about them. I'm planning on doing these just as and when I'm able (more often that not I'll be updating during lulls in my work days, like now!) and starting with the first completion I earned and working through until one day, hopefully, I'll be up to date and can just update as I earn those sweet platinum trophies. So without further ado... Plat #1 - The Walking Dead - The Walking Dead (PS3) - 23rd April 2014 DLC Completion - 400 Days - 23rd April 2014 Jesus, nearly 7 years ago, how time flies. So yeah, I started off easy, but what a game to kick off my trophy journey. I'd already played this through on it's release on the Xbox 360 but when I moved on to using my Dad's PS3, I saw he had this installed and knew I had to do another playthrough and earn my first platinum. There's not a lot I can say about this game that hasn't already been said, but I genuinely think this still holds up today as one of the best Telltale experiences. The characters are brilliantly written, excellent musical accompaniment, and while there isn't a great deal of actual gameplay here, the story is good enough to keep you playing and invested, just waiting to see what lies around the next corner. I still think that Lee and Clementine's story is one of the best I've had the pleasure of experiencing and the climax still almost brought me to tears even when I knew what was coming. I haven't even watched the Walking Dead series (Personally think it's gone on for far too long), so for this game to get me to actually care about it's world and characters is really something. And this came out before the Telltale engine was dated as fuck so it didn't even feel like an older game. The DLC adds a little bit here but not really enough that I would recommend it. I enjoyed getting to follow different characters and the fact that it was split across the eponymous '400 days' added some intrigue as to how they all tied together in the end. Overall, I enjoyed my experience with the game and even came back for a double dip, more on this far later on. Pros One of Telltale's finest bits of work, even to this day. An enthralling story and excellent character work. Cel-shaded art style doesn't leave it feeling too dated. Cons Pacing can be all over the place, specifically in the 4th and 5th episodes. Not a great deal of actual gameplay. DLC doesn't bring a lot of extra content to the table. Overall Rating - 7.2/10 400 Days Rating - 6.3/10 Plat #2 - Master Assassin - Assassin's Creed II (PS3) - 5th June 2014 This was another game that I had already played back in my 360 days, but I'd rank this as one of my favourites at the time so I knew I had to get this platinum added to my new account. This is the game that put Assassin's Creed on the map in my opinion. The first one was good, if a little repetitive, but Assassin's Creed II with it's gorgeous (at the time) recreation of Renaissance Italy and Ezio's fantastic story of betrayal and revenge almost singlehandedly changed not only the series but I'd go as far to say it changed how Ubisoft made games and arguably still do to this day. The cities were fantastically realised and seemed to be brimming with life, and the brilliant variety of missions but also side content as well left me amazed when I played it, and I'd argue it's still one of the better Creed titles to this day. It's definitely dated at the point having originally been released in 2009, but if you can pick up the Ezio Collection and run through an upscaled version of this on PS4 or even PS5 now, it more than holds it's own. Couple this with the fact that Ezio is probably one of the most well recognised and liked protagonists of the last 10 years it's easy to see why so many people still rate this game so highly. Of course there is more than enough fair criticisms to pick out, despite me loving the game. Tailing missions, gathering all the feathers, the final boss fight, and yes I'm using that term very loosely. But all in all, I wouldn't change much about this game. It has some rough edges but it paved the way for the AC titles we have had over the last decade, and with it still remaining one of my favourite series, I have a lot to thank this game for. Pros Ezio is a phenomenal protagonist, rivalled only by Bayek and Edward in my opinion. The leaps and bounds forward in the quality of gameplay from the original title. First AC game to have trophiesπŸ˜€ Cons The game has annoying little bugs and glitches to this day: disappearing treasure chests, faceless NPC's etc. The climbing/parkour mechanics are terrible compared to what has come since but this is more a product of it's time. Tailing missions. Seriously can we just accept that nobody likes these?! Overall Rating - 7.7/10 Non-Plat Completion #1 - Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons - 6th June 2014 Hot on the heels of Assassin's Creed II, I decided to try out what I believe must've been one of the Plus offerings because I really don't remember buying this one. This was a pretty little indie title whose entire story was connected to how it played, with each analog stick controlling one of the 'Brothers'. I honestly don't remember too much about this one, other than that fact that the ending hit me like a ton of bricks. Very emotional story to follow along with, and the fact that it can have such an effect with no actual dialog is very effective. I especially enjoyed how it essentially changed the way the game even plays, but I can't say much more than that without getting into serious spoiler territory. The game is very short, probably taking a couple of hours at most to complete. So, if you've got this sat somewhere in your likely mountainous Plus backlog, I'd recommend giving it a shot, if you're looking for a shorter experience in between your longer grinds. Pros A heart-warming story with a real gut punch conclusion. Interesting mechanics in terms of how it's played. Cons Probably a little too short for it's own good. Quite forgettable after the initial playthrough. Overall Rating - 6.1/10 Non-Plat Completion #2 - Doki-Doki Universe - 18th July 2014 Shortly after the above, I managed to get myself a PS4, and when playing through the amazing catalogue I had at the time (Knack and Watch Dogs, boy was I strapped for a decent game), Doki-Doki Universe came as one of the Plus offerings for the month. Like I said, I was struggling for things to play, but I actually remember being pleasantly surprised by this one. Essentially a virtual sticker book, this game requires you to solve puzzles using the stickers you've acquired and that's pretty much it. Being another game on the shorter side, this took me a couple of sessions to complete, but when my options were so limited, it was nice to have something to break up the pace a little bit. The art style is fun, and given the length of it, it's another one I'm inclined to recommend. There isn't a lot here to be keeping you busy, but as a short palette cleanser, this more than fits the bill. Pros Fun art style with simple but engaging puzzles Doesn't overstay it's welcome Cons Simplistic with not a lot in the way of variety Humour can be a little childish at times Overall Rating - 5.2/10 I think that should do it for now, a start of 4 mini reviews to be going on with. I will be trying to make this more of a semi-regular thing and like I said before, hopefully one day I will be up to date and can leave more detailed reviews about individual games as and when I complete them. Until next time, stay safe and happy hunting! 😎
  23. Hi everybody! Welcome to the growing horde of platinums. This is a work in progress that I'll likely add to piece by piece until it's up to date, with great inspiration taken from @Cassylvania and @DoctorDrPepper's lists. Everything below has at least got the base game completed, some of these have DLC too! Forewarning, there is Ratalaika and Vita stacks but it is something I'm steadily cutting down on. I'll hopefully be adding reviews/thoughts regarding the below in time, but I'm fairly new here and still figuring out how exactly everything works so bare with me! My Completions Action Action-Adventure Adventure Arcade Fighting Hack 'n' Slash/Beat 'em up Metroidvania Party Platformer Point and Click (Interactive Drama) Puzzle Racing Rhythm RogueLite RPG SHMUP Shooter Simulation Sports Visual Novel VR Walking Sim
  24. I'm not 100% but I'm pretty sure that it only works the other way. If you want to do both you'll have to do PS4 then autopop the PS5.
  25. Seems like it would ruin the enjoyment of playing it to me, being overlevelled for everything, but each to their own. If all you've done is farm points then don't see the big deal in reloading the save, but might as well wait for the patch at this point if other solutions from above don't work.
