  1. I, too, like to join. Last year was fun even though I didn't manage to get all colors
  2. Late answer, but technically you don't need Proud. You need Proud for one ability to get the All Abilities trophy but for that, you can obtain all Dreameaters on Standard, then start a NG+ with all dreameaters. All you have to do then is farm the beginning to grind all dreameaters for all abilities again. No need to go through the whole game on Proud.
  3. KH Dream Drop Distance is also easy. Those two are the only KH games that don't have difficulty related trophies needed for platinum.
  4. Ys 8: Lacrimosa of Dana is a failry easy game to platinum. It can be a bit time consuming but I found it really enjoyable and had a lot of fun while going for the plat. The difficulty related trophy is basically nothing if you leveled good enough in a normal playthrough and then make NG+ for Hard. And the story can be enjoyed without having to play the former titles in the series. I only started with them after playing Ys 8 Another game that's supposed to be easy is Fairy Fencer F. Haven't played it that far but so far it is also an enjoyable jrpg.
  5. Genius cats managed to let a bottle of soda fall unto my Vita. So far everythings okay and I thought I wiped most of it before any damage could have been done. Started the Vita today and when i needed to use the square and triangle button I noticed that they are a bit sticky. they function, but they only can be pressed more slowly. Tried to get inside of the nooks with a screenwipe tissue around a stitching needle but it didn't seem to be effective. Anyone else any ideas?

      sending it in would be a last resort option. some stores still repair vita consoles.

      I'm an idiot so don't listen to me, but I would try to wash off the sticky parts with a damp wash cloth. The screenwipe tissues I've seen might not be "wet" enough to clean off the soda. I've also went to town with an XO (sp?) knife around the nooks and crannies of my PS3 controller buttons, so if you don't mind some scratches that's an idea as well.

  6. Hm, what exactly happens when you stop your ps+ subscription?

    I know, you can't play ps4 multiplayer anymore (don't play it anyway) and you lose access to cloud save and ps+ games.

    I'm interested int he question what happens if I skip out on it a few months and then get it back again. Will I have then lost all my cloud saves or are they safe but untouchable until I'm subscribed again?

      @ERGOPROXY-DECAY FFXIV doesn't need a PS+ subscription to work. I basically don't need PS+ except for PS+ games which I currently don't play due to the new expansion coming and cloud saves which I technically could do on a usb drive as well. And money's a bit short, so I'm currently thinking of pausing the subscription for the few extra bucks

      Oh really? thats awesome! I never knew that part, I play on PC :P

      Iirc it's a deal Sony has with some subscription based online games. You don't need PS+, if you're already paying a subscription for online games. You need PS+ for free games and for games, where you play only once to buy it or which only have MP as an add-on. It's a bit confusing, but it was one of the first things I looked up when I bought FFXIV.

  7. Games added to my backlog (8): - Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth (PS4, -3) - HITMAN (PS+) - Metal Gear Solid 4 (PS+) - Overcooked (PS+) - The Witness (PS+) - Tokyo Xanadu eX+ (-3) - What Remains of Edith Finch (PS+) - Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana (-3) Games started from my backlog (4): - Blackwood Crossing - Midnight Deluxe (PS4) - Pic-a-Pic Pieces (PS4) - Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana Games storyline finished from my backlog (1): - Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana (+1) Games started from my backlog on an alt (0): none Games removed from my backlog (5): - Blackwood Crossing (+1) - Midnight Deluxe (PS4, +1) - Pic-a-Pic Pieces (PS4, +1) - What Remains of Edith Finch (+1) - Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana (+1) Been two rather busy months but still I was able to put in some gaming time. The big game was Ys VIII. My first title in this series and I now bought some of the older games on Steam during a sale. The game was a lot of fun and I practically binged this game through the story, through the endgame grind and through most of the Nightmare playthrough before I did a break. I played some minor games to clean up some backlog, like Midnight Deluxe and Pic-a-Pic Pieces. Blackwood Crossing was a short but really beautiful game. Nearly made me cry at the end. The same goes for What Remains of Edith Finch. The game was really well made even though I would have wished for some more insight into what the grandma thought was going on with the family. Last weekend I then decided to finish Ys VIII. So all in all 5 games done from my backlog. Unfortunately, I also have bought two more JRPGs and some PS+ titles. So, the backlog's still growing. Meh. Right now, I'm in a FFXIV phase again, so I don't think there will be a lot of progress in other games in a while.
  8. A colleague at work just asked me what PS4 games would be a good choice to get for her ten year old nephew.

    He plays a lot of fortnight. Since I'm not in this genre, the whole office is brainstorming now.

    We thought about Forza, because he likes cars as well, and Overwatch in the battle royale genre.

    Any other recomendations? Living in Germany and apparently he doesn't even have a Gamestop anywhere near him.

    Budget would be around 40-50 Euro.

    1. Mr_Skirra


      I play a lot of videogames with my clients who are about that age too, and they love the lego game series, fifa, spyro, fortnite of course, and some of the older ones play call of duty as well. 

      Oh, and don't forget about minecraft 

  9. I have been playing Ys VIII so excessively over the last two weeks that my room mate got really angry at me for doing nothing else even though I am currently bound to bed and can't really move at all due to health issues. I now quitted the game out of protest for her anger and now I'm wondering what else I can do besides playing video games.


    Anyway, I finished the true ending yesterday and got the last few trophies out of the way. All that's left is a NG+ on Nightmare for the final trophy. Let's see how fast I can rush through this game. Once my room mate doesn't judge me as an addict anymore, that is

    1. kidson2004


      If I were you, I wouldn’t let her change your mood due to her anger of YOU enjoying something you enjoy. And she needs to keep her opinions to herself. Damn shame that happened to you man. Next time, tell her to go find somewhere to climb and stay there. 

    2. Edunstar84


      I would continue playing things you enjoy. But can you knit or crochet? Maybe use a color book app or buy an adult one?

    3. ResoluteRock


      I don't think your roommate did it out of malice. I don't know you, I don't know your roommate, I don't know what was said/done, but I feel like all of the anger wasn't directed at you because of you. Maybe there's something else going on in your roommate's life? Maybe they're just a really blunt person?


      Maybe your roommate just wants to see you feel better and do more than play video games. Maybe your roommate really cares, but doesn't know how to show it.


      Or maybe your roommate is just a jerk. Who knows?

  10. Well... after collapsing at work because of terrible leg pain and being sent away with an ambulance, I'm now at home and kinda enjoying an early week end.

    Now I can continue playing Ys VIII. That game took my soul but god, it is so beautiful and I love every single bit of it. Really glad, I bought this game :D

    1. Caju_94


      Thank your leg for that! xD

      Have a nice recovery!

    2. lordguwa


      hopefully you get better soon, i regret having that seizure myself. ended up owing about 1.5k dollars for one ambulance trip i'm going to have to invest into a desk fan to cool myself down when things heat up.

    3. Lagoon Aris

      @lordguwa That sounds terrible. I'm glad I'm living in Germany, so that trip with the ambulance didn't cost me anything at all. The doctor wanted me to stay in the hospital, but I said no after he explained, that they wouldn't do anything more there than having me lying in a bed and taking the same pain killers I'm already taking. So I decided to go home where I at least have entertainment. But if I had to pay for the trip, I would have outright refused. Can't allow to be in any debt. That must be awful

  11. So, I finally ot to sit down and update the whole Thread. Since I'm not on my PC but instead on such an tiny laptop, I wonder, if I really can call it, I haven't looked if there were any new games. I will try to do that in the following week. But since @yoda6380 mentioned it in this thread, I added a new game: Queens Quest 2: Stories of Forgotten Past I wonder why they haven't released the first one on console but maybe it will follow. Anyway, this game changed the ranks again. You need 21 games for Artifex Master and 17 games for Alchemist. Everything else stayed the same. So every Artifex Master got a rank down and was moved to Former Master. Apart from that I updated everyone according to their posts. So if anything isn't correct, please say so. I will try to check everyones profile for the correct amount of plats in the near future but I can't promise when that will be. So please, continue to update your games here and I will give my best to do updates more frequently.
  12. Games added to my backlog (0): none (yay) Games started from my backlog (0): none Games storyline finished from my backlog (0): none Games started from my backlog on an alt (0): none Games removed from my backlog (3): - Bioshock 2 (+1 point) - Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storms Generations (+1 point) - Project Diva Future Tone (both dlcs, +2 points) A rather succesfull month for me. I added nothing new to my backlog and instead managed to get three titles off of it. Proud of myself. Bioshock was once started by my room mate on my account. The reason was, that I tried Bioshock 1 but couldn't get far and so she offered to get the plat for me. Well, I'm still waiting on that but she promised to get me that one if she also is allowed to get me Bioshock 2. So, that one, she finally fulfilled. Now I have to wait for her to touch the PS3 again Project Diva was terrible. The last two trophies glitched on me in both expansions on two different consoles. I hated it. Internet told me to try simply more videos to take screenshots from. With over 300 songs it was a chore. I then decided to continue said chore in my new PS4 Pro and third time's being the charme, it unlocked the trophies and I finally have those darn 100% Naruto SUNS Generation is one easy plat but very grindy. I decided to work on that while I watched the second and third season of Lemony Snicket on Netflix as the plat didn't require any attention at all. It took me about 20 hours longer than guides are suggesting. Mostly because the Card Collection trophy kinda glitched on me. A lot of cards didn't unlock when I met their requirements such as finishing certain chapters in the tales or playing with a certain character a certain number of times. I spend one whole day with 12 hours only working on that single trophy. Really glad I got it. That's another Naruto game down from my list. Only two games left on my profile, one of them I don't intend to plat. And then I only miss one game overall which I will buy at some point in the distant future.
  13. I know, there was a thread here that lists all (or a lot of) games by their time needed to plat but I can't find it. If anyone has the link, that would be much appreciated.

      Was it maybe this thread:

      Yeah, that was it. Thanks a lot!

  14. Games added to my backlog (3): - Broken Age (HumbleBundle, -3 points) - Grim Fandango Remastered (HumbleBundle, shares points with BA) - Kingdom Hearts 3 (exception) Games started from my backlog (4): - Broken Age - Danganronpa Ultra Despair Girls (PS Vita) - Eventide 3 - Kingdom Hearts 3 Games storyline finished from my backlog (2): - Broken Age (+1 point) - Kingdom Hearts 3 (+1 point) Games started from my backlog on an alt (0): - Games removed from my backlog (1): - Eventide 3 (+1 point) Well, so far only 3 new games. 2 from a humble bundle and one is the big game I expected to kill my wallet this year. Got Kingdom Hearts 3 together with the PS4 Pro bundle and so far, I didn't regret it. The game will be my #75 milestone, so after I finished the story yesterday (and have been left confused af), I won't do any more trophies until I reach #74 plats to then quickly get through the rest and be content with it. The other KH games, I will plat some time after, but since I already planned my #100 milestone as well, I don't think they will make it to any milestones. So, to fill up the numbers towards #75, I try to get some simple games out of the way. I startd with Eventide 3, so I don't have any Artifex games left in my backlog. I will have to wait for another sale before I get the remaining Artifex games. But I don't intend to buy anything for at least half a year to get to all of my current games. It really is terrible how many games I have and never even touched. I really don't want to continue that theme anymore. Currently I'm working on Broken Age. Finished the game and most stories but have the speedrun trophy left. I hate speed run trophies... Not sure what else to tackle. Probably Fairy Fencer and maybe Murdered and Blackwood Crossing for inbetween.
  15. Finally finished Kingdom Hearts 3. now i will wait with the remaining trophies until i can make the game a milestone. I liked the normal Ending a lot. It made me really really happy. The epilogue and secret Ending however confused the heck outa me. What was happening? @[email protected]

      Yeah, 3 has references to stuff in UX that was added to the game so close to release that only the JP players got to play it before the game released lol. Back cover is a good enough coverage of the key events I suppose.


      I wish I could see the reaction of someone playing KH3 for the first time without having played any KH games before it at all tbh lol, they must be so confused.

      I guess, you'Re talking about the new quests they just released yesterday or so? Quite interested in the whole stuff and it gives me quite the motivation to go on the mobile game after a few months of dragging it occasionally.

      tbh, it is hilarious. My room mate sat besides me during the beginning of the game up until Twilight Town and from the end of San Fransokyo until the end of the game including epilogue and secret ending. She just was confused without any pause even though she watched a kh series summary beforehand on youtube and got stuff explained by me on the go. I really don't think kh3 is something for newcomers

    4. madbuk


      Yeah it was absolutely designed with the people who have played previous games in mind. The in-game memory archive they had was rather basic too.

      I was expecting 3 to pretty much close off everything other than the mysterious black box, so that newcomers for KH4 may actually have a chance at comprehending it, but nope. It will continue to be a franchise that's hard to get into lol.
