  1. Not really been trophy hunting as much, my husband built me a gaming PC before Christmas so I've been having a blast playing a whole bunch of co-op games with him.  We're currently 100+ hours into Elden Ring - playing together with the Seamless Co-op mod has been wonderful.

      A gaming PC would be awesome!  Love the add-ons for some games.

  2. Ys VIII has been added back onto PS+ Extra, NISA confirmed it disappeared in error
  3. Assuming that you'll be playing on the Island - then for bosses Megatheriums are great for the Broodmother, Tek Rexes for the Megapithecus and ascension cave; and Therizinos for the Dragon. Make sure to also bring along a Yutyrannus for buffing, and a Daeodon for healing. For crafting, aside from making sure you have a base of operations, then good armor and weapons are also essentials for the boss fights along with different soups for cooling effects. Good quality saddles are also a priority to increase the survivability of your tames in the fights - best to look for saddle blueprints and craft them. Your hardest blueprint to find will likely be for a rex saddle. For taming, you'll want to be crafting narcotic, kibble, tranq arrows/darts and a crossbow or longneck - I recommend checking out a website called dododex which will be your go-to for taming information. For the caves to find the artifacts, you'll likely want a Sabertooth or Thylacoleo for the land caves and a Mosasaur for the water cave. Also bring along an otter as they can hold multiple of the same artifact. You'll want some general utility dinosaurs too for collecting resources. As you're playing with friends, I recommend that everyone has a specialist role - builder, tamer, breeder etc. I'd probably look into some videos on breeding and how to get the best stats on your dinosaurs. As you're presumably hosting your own server, I recommend tweaking the breeding settings so that it doesn't take 3 days to fully raise a tek rex to maturity. Starting out, I'd suggest doing the Island note run as that can increase your level significantly - which will be a blocker for crafting, joining boss fights, collecting artifacts etc. If you plan on playing on the other maps, then obviously my suggestions would change a little as it will open up other tames for you. I do want to mention I've had better experiences finding higher level tames on Ragnarok, Valguero and Center (all free maps) In addition to what I've mentioned, the wiki is a wonderful source of information: https://ark.fandom.com/wiki/ARK_Survival_Evolved_Wiki Obviously, if you want to go beyond the platinum, then the paid DLCs are a wonderful source of hours and hours of content. I'd probably skip Scorched Earth, but Aberration, Extinction and Genesis 1 & 2 all offer some unique challenges - plus there is the story and lore to follow along with. There are plenty of free DLCs too, I mentioned Ragnarok, Center and Valguero but there is also Crystal Isles, Lost Island and Fjordur - I cannot really comment much about these latter three as I've not personally played them, but I hear Fjordur in particular is fantastic. I hope that information is somewhat helpful, it's always nice to see someone wanting to experience the game for what it is.
  4. After 3+ months, I finally finished my first game Ys IX: Monstrum Nox. I really enjoyed my time with it, and liked it WAY better than Lacrimosa of Dana. Hopefully the next game picked for me won't take me so long to finish (working 6 days a week kind of got in the way of my gaming time)
  5. I'm in, thankfully it's on the one Saturday in September where I don't have to work!
  6. I would like to specify I don't have a problem with you, I don't think we have even interacted before today. I was just sharing my personal experiences and observations. In the same way you're sharing yours. Just because our experiences don't align doesn't mean there is any hatred or malice there.
  7. It's not my intent to belittle her or anyone else, I was just sharing my observations (as I think Stevieboy also pointed out similar observations earlier in the thread)
  8. I feel I might go against the grain a bit here, but as a female gamer who has been on the forum for a while under this profile and under a previous one (which had a clearly identifiable feminine sounding username) I haven't had negative interactions with guys on here purely because I'm a woman. I've had one creeper, which the mods dealt with super swiftly. Other than that, it's been a very positive experience for me on the forums and in boosting sessions etc. @tonkie18 I definitely don't doubt that you've had bad interactions, but I have also seen you accuse people of being misogynistic and attacking you because you're female, where no gender was ever mentioned. As gamers and trophy hunters, I'm sure we all get in debates about what we're passionate about, I'd say to try not to take it so personally (unless someone is outwardly being rude to you, then report it)
  9. Absolutely loving what I've played of Cult of the Lamb so far ^_^ Sadly, the PS4 trophy list isn't synced to PSN yet so unable to track them

      At least you're having fun. :) 

  10. Nope, Cult of the Lamb is made by Massive Monster (Don't Starve is made by Klei) Massive Monster also makes The Adventure Pals, which is a pretty fun game too.
  11. Managed to knock out game number 2! 0. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Lego DC Supervillains 08/06/2022 6. 7. The Artful Escape 08/07/2022 8. 9. Wow, what an experience! Definitely a highlight of an easy game (80.26% rarity) that is actually an absolute banger - the visuals and the music were fantastic!
  12. Got my first game done: 0. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Lego DC Supervillains 08/06/2022 6. 7. 8. 9. This one has been a long time coming, it's something I've been chipping away (albeit very slowly) in the evenings after work when I'm not feeling so tired. Decided to just sit down today and knock out the remaining hub collectibles I needed. Feels good to be finished, I always think that Lego games seem like a chill time....until I play one and remember how involved the collectibles are.
  13. You could always use both Nexomon: Extinction and Adventures of Mana as part of your list if you don't manage to get them finished before August 1st
  14. I also platted Stray recently, and absolutely loved it Putting my vote toward the Capybara
  15. #270. Summer in Mara I've been enjoying a lot more relaxing, farming/adventure type games and Summer in Mara really does fit the bill for that. It is very fetch quest heavy, and each of the NPCs have side quests/story arcs that you need to work on - a lot of these are interwoven - but they add to the overall theme of the story. Resources can be difficult to come by initially, until you start growing out your farm and visiting new islands - money is definitely a thing hard to come by without grinding quite a lot. I liked this well enough, but after a while it did overstay its welcome. #271. Kitaria Fables I feel bad for saying this, but this game was one of my biggest disappointments this year. It's around 3 hours story, and the rest of the time (20 or so hours) just grinding. Distinct lack of cat puns too. I do wonder if I played this too soon after Mara as they are kind of similar style games (with the addition of combat in Kitaria) It is super cute though. ---- Aside from these, I'm now kind of just coasting until STRAY is released on the 19th. I have Lego DC Supervillains I'm working on when I have time in the evenings - I have managed to clear all of the DLC and currently working my way through the levels again getting all the collectibles. I'm also actively playing Genshin Impact still, new update has dropped so I have some extra things outside of my dailies to do. I also downloaded Ys IX to play, which was chosen for me in the PS EXTRA-vaganza event - planning on maybe starting that one at the weekend but that might be a long term ongoing project.
