  1. Looks like I got a few of them: An Ingredient to Rule them All - My Name is Mayo (Vita) Monster Masher - Demon Gaze ...Now I'm a Bel-Iba! - Hakuoki: Edo Blossoms Fading of Obscuring Fog - Tokyo Xanadu eX+ Memories With Sait-Germain - Code Realize Wintertide Miracles The End of the Beginning - The Sexy Brutale
  2. People not getting sick time is a very related issue. A large cause of people spreading contagious diseases is because they go to work while sick and interact with people who are not sick. If you go to say a grocery store and aren't sick, you're far more likely to get something from a sick employee than a sick customer. Even with COVID, a lot of the biggest outbreaks so far have been from a sick person going to work, especially in factories. I've worked at many places that discourage people from staying home while sick and the results are that when one person gets sick from someone in their household and shows up to work still, what they have then spreads to most of the employees quickly and within a few days the majority of the employees are sick too. It's a huge problem that was ignored for the most part before now because so many felt that you should tough out a cold or flu and a good worker wouldn't let a little cold or flu bring them down. Discouraging people from going to work sick would be a huge step in preventing larger outbreaks of any contagious disease and that's only going to happen when people aren't put in a situation where they feel they must go to work either due to being unable to miss out on pay or because they could be written up or fired for being out for a legitimate illness. The thing is, we already have many measures in place to ensure a sick person can reduce exposure if they need to go out and get medicine or food. I doubt contactless pickup options are going away. Even before the pandemic many stores were offering pickup and delivery options for groceries and prescriptions. I doubt that's going anywhere and that would be a great option for someone who is sick and doesn't have anyone else to go get groceries or medicine because that limits exposure.
  3. Ended up deciding to stick with just two POWGI games rather than holding off on further plats since I hit 174 and am not ready to pop #175 yet. So in total I got 66 trophies. 64 from two POWGI games and two from Hajimari no Kiseki because I finally got all the treasure chests and wrapped up all the missions and only have the 1500 battles and level 15 MQ left for the plat.
  4. Still only CS2 spoilers: But otherwise I hope you get to start CS3 soon enough.
  5. Actually, it's not a rumor. If you follow the stock market there were some interesting movements this week in Gamestop's stock, mostly on Tuesday when this came out. https://www.benzinga.com/news/20/09/17595730/chewys-ryan-cohen-sees-gamestop-rivaling-amazon-long-term And that was the catalyst for it. Gamestop's stock had some nice moves on Tuesday because of it. There is also a recent SEC filing confirming Ryan Cohen as the biggest shareholder in the stock.
  6. I can't honestly see that ever happening. After all this is over, wearing a mask when sick would just draw attention to the fact that someone is sick and that could easily result in unfair discrimination and poor treatment. I think the best we can hope for is that in general there will be a greater understanding for the need to stay home when sick. More employers in the US especially could use to be more understanding of the need to stay home when an employee or someone in their household gets something contagious. One big change needed in the US is that more employers need to have fair sick leave policies. I've definitely had some jobs that have zero understanding and others only provide unpaid time. I've also seen some that require a certain amount of notice before one's shift to call out sick and that's not always possible. There should be no reason for a sick employee to go in to work and if they get sick while there, they should be encouraged to go home. Another real problem is how many employers will guilt a sick employee into showing up or staying. That puts the health of everyone in the workplace at risk and needs to stop. Something else that I think more employers should do is something like what an old workplace of mine did. During cold and flu season every other month or so they'd have people come in to disinfect the place. It was a company that specialized in it and was pretty much like an exterminator service, but for germs. Only worked for one place that did this and it was well before the pandemic, but I think that was a great idea on the part of the owner of the business. I'm sure the company that provides this service has been doing well during all this.
  7. If you've finished CS2 that spoiler is safe. I probably should edit and say it's only CS2 spoilers since I have played all the games after it too. Sorry for the confusion there!
  8. Trails of Cold Steel 2 spoilers only: And let me go ahead and give my own update: 1. Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki (84%) 48 out of 53 trophies 2. Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV (releases 10/27 in NA) 0 out of 53 trophies 3. Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes (55%) 39 out of 55 trophies 4. Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny (11%) 8 out of 38 trophies 5. Marenian Tavern Story (0%) 0 out of 50 trophies 6. Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk (0%) 0 out of 58 trophies 7. Alphadia Genesis (0%) 0 out of 34 trophies 68 out of 314 trophies earned. 0 out of 7 games completed 1/5 swaps Wrapped up a couple more trophies in Hajimari, just trying to finish up my third run and get the last two trophies that aren't a major grind and need to wait on the Oct 1st update. I'll probably get that plat shortly after that update drops. Made a bit of progress in Sengoku Basara trophy wise by finally pulling off the no damage trophy and somehow getting the one for finishing a story with a 500 hit combo. The latter was a bit strange because the trophy implies you need to finish the last battle with a 500+ hit combo, and I definitely didn't do that. If it was just 500+ at some point in the last battle, then I should have gotten it before then. About the best I've figured out is that trophy has been an issue for others and only seems to unlock if you don't unlock any other trophies from that run and meet the conditions. I've also wrapped up a few more playthroughs, putting me up to 25 completed. And going to add Alphadia Genesis to my list since I just bought that one.
  9. Inverse Champion in Gem Smashers (Vita). The game has a glitch that affects some that prevents this trophy from unlocking. The only means to resolve if affected is to format your Vita. Had that one affect me, it sucked.
  10. Waiting is an option, but I've seen it take upwards of a month or longer for an IP to cycle out. It doesn't harm a router though to power it off, in fact it's recommended to powercycle your equipment on a regular basis (usually about every two weeks to a month) to ensure the best performance of your internet, but with most routers you'll have to actually unplug it from the wall outlet to get it to turn off.
  11. Because I have a lot of weird ones where I played them on multiple consoles, I'm running with what I originally played them on to know what they count as for favorites so I'm not torn between what to say a multiplatform one belongs to. PS1: Suikoden 2 PS2: Shadow Hearts: Covenant PSP: Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky FC Vita: Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II PS3: NieR PS4: Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki Since some of these were some hard picks, here's a few honorable mentions: PS1: Suikoden, Arc the Lad 3 PS2: Xenosaga Episode 3, Tales of the Abyss PSP: Ys Seven, Legend of Heroes: A Tear of Vermillion, Talles of Eternia Vita: Tales of Hearts R, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana No honorable mentions for PS3 and PS4. Those picks were a piece of cake for me.
  12. Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes Pic-A-Pix Pieces 2 (NA Vita) Trying to make Hajimari my 175th plat but since I'm only at 172, am working on an easy one on Vita to be filler for that. Sengoku Basara is the chipping away at stupidly long and grindy plat because I still need to finish 3 more playthroughs with 14 out of 16 of the heroes to even get close to finishing this grind.
  13. So my own personal recommendations for PS4 RPGs -All the PS4 Legend of Heroes games. Right now only Cold Steel I-III are localized, but IV will come out next month and I'm sure Hajimari will be localized eventually. They are lengthy plats, but very reasonable. Only the first game has a somewhat tricky nightmare difficulty, but there isn't a ton of skill needed here. -Persona 5. Can't comment on Royal, but Persona 5 has a setting where you can be revived if your characters die, so it's a very easy game. You'll need a guide for social links and other stuff, but it's very forgiving there as well. -Nearly everything published by Kemco. These are actually easy and short. Most average about 15 hours for the plat and at worst you'll need a guide for subquests if you run into any trouble with them. -Cosmic Star Heroine. Pretty short and the guide on here covers what you need to get through the harder battles easily. -Ys VIII Lacrimosa of Dana and Ys: Memories of Celceta. Both are pretty easy and outside of sidequets, there's not a ton of missables. Nightmare difficulty on both is very doable on NG+ -The Alliance Alive: HD Remastered. Outside of two battles that are kind of tricky, this game is laughably easy. The final boss is so easy that you actually have to make an effort to lose for the sub ending 2 trophy. It's got some speedrun trophies, but on NG+ if you skip recruitment and cutscenes you can finish the game in 4 hours, and it gives 10 for the speedrun. There's a wonderful spreadsheet for all the missables on GameFAQs that makes this plat very reasonable. -The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2. Not a hard game at all and you barely even need a guide for it. You'll probably want to check out the GameFAQs board for the listing of locations for the notorious monsters, but pretty much you just need to get yourself a good weapon, load it up with catalysts and the game is a piece of cake. -Any RPGs published by Ratalaika games
  14. I think it could be neat to see a breakdown of trophies earned by game. That doesn't need to be further broken down by gold, silver, bronze, etc. but it could be neat to see what games people played and which games contributed the most trophies. Also wonder if there could be a way to break it down by platform and see how many trophies were earned on PS3, PS4 and Vita.
  15. The thing is that it hasn't even been consistent among games that are released on multiple platforms and regions. For example we have all those games with numerous platform and region stacks for the same lists and then other games that release on a new console later and just add the new platform to the current list. Then you get stuff like KH1 where the PS4 list has the same trophies, but the difficulty trophies stack on PS4 and don't on PS3 and that's the only difference between the stacks really. Then you get games that have added content with trophies and then really weird cases like The Witch and the Hundred Knight Revival Edition that completely redid the trophy list for the PS4 version when it only added a bit of new content. Sony really seems to leave it up to the devs and if they want another list for the new platform or region, they'll get it. If they don't want it, then the new platform will be added to the current list.
