  1. :platinum: #267 UNCHARTED: THE LOST LEGACY - Considering all the frustration I'm currently having with Uncharted 4's Survival DLC, this is actually surprisingly good and I could only wish all Naughty Dog games were like this where they focus on a good story rather than bullshit trophies that take hours of slogging to 100% completion xD

      @AJ_Radio Just trying to get 3 stars on Stage 6 whilst grinding lvl 5 weapons, such a bitch :(

      AJ_Radio

      It's been a long time since I played, but how do you grind weapons? Do you just repeat the same stages over and over?

      @AJ_Radio Killing warlords gives you weapon upgrades... stages 1-5 is for pistols and stages 6-10 is for rifles. The max you can get them to is lvl 3 on the easy difficulties, lvl 4 on hard and then lvl 5 on crushing so we've been repeating some of the stages for weapon upgrades and xp :)

  2. :platinum: #266 FURI - Well, I had 2 weeks booked off from work because I needed to use up my holidays and I decided to bring Furi and Uncharted 4 forward... two games which I knew would be annoying as hell. Sadly, after a week I got called to go back to work because they were struggling (overtime rate so I'm not complaining) but it meant that I didn't have much time to go back to Furi or Uncharted 4 otherwise I would have completed it quicker. Anyway the game, it's good and I liked the soundtrack so much that I bought it... the gameplay reminds me of Metal Gear Rising but the dodge mechanic is very selective and the stranger only dodges when he feels like it most of the time which tried my patience on the Burst boss fight (beating her was a fluke) but it was a challenging and yet rewarding game. Now i'm going to play Uncharted the Lost Legacy whilst I carry on chipping away at the survival DLC for Uncharted 4 whilst house hunting so I can pursue this landlord venture what I've been banging on about all year starting next week as I'm viewing some more houses (I did have a couple of offers accepted on some houses but finances proved to be way too expensive and would have crippled me... stamp duty mostly) but these ones I'm viewing are dirt cheap so at the minute gaming is on the back burner whilst my day life becomes priority for once xD

  3. Hi all, I'm after a complete list of visual novels available on the Playstation Vita in ENGLISH and PHYSICAL FORMAT. There used to be a website that had a list of all the upcoming visual novel games as well as a list that displayed all the past releases of visual novels but sadly I can't find it anymore so I have to assume it no longer exists. They have to be physical as I don't collect digital games and in English as I want to read them and not just skip the cut scenes for the sake of an easy platinum. I love collecting visual novels as I enjoy reading them at work and I'm looking to add to it, my growing collection so far are: (Anything Underlined and in Italics are User Comments or games I don't own yet) 7'sCarlet Bad Apple Wars Chaos;Child Code Realize: Guardian of Rebirth Code Realize: Future Blessings Code: Realize: Wintertide Miracles Collar X Malice Corpse Party: Blood Drive Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony Hakuoki Kyoto Winds Hakuoki: Edo Blossoms Muv Luv Muv Luv Alternative My Aunt Is A Witch Nicole Norn 9: Var Commons Nurse Love Addiction Nurse Love Syndrome Period Cube: Shackles of Amadeus Psychedelica of the Ashen Hawk Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly Psycho Pass Mandatory Happiness Punchline Roommates Root Double Before Crime After Days Xtend Edition Root Letter Steins;Gate Steins;Gate 0 Synergia The House in Fata Morgana Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth VA-11 HALL-A Virtues Last Reward Yumeutsutsu Re:Master Yumeutsutsu Re:After XBlaze Code: Embryo XBlaze Lost: Memories Zero Time Dilemma COLLECTIONS Zero Escape: The Nonary Games (collects 999 and Virtues Last Reward) Code Realize; Bouquet of Rainbows (collects Guardians of Rebirth and Future Blessings) ANNOUNCED BUT NO RELEASE DATE Grisaia Series Fault Milestone One** World End Economica** Narcissu** Project Lux** **The Vita versions have been cancelled and will instead be released on PS4 but I will keep these on for the time being should anything change in the future.
  4. @visvoer18 I've not played them yet but I do have them on the vita so I'll find out when I get round to it
  5. @grifteskymfning I'll update the list now
  6. I'm just about at my wits end with this stupid mission but the advice I've been reading on the internet doesn't make it any easier with the key factor being boiled down to luck. Does anybody have any solid tips or advice that can help me beat this mission? of course, I'll post the winning formula afterwards if it can help others beat it but so far here's what I've been doing: Immediately equp the pole arm and zandatsu all the soldiers, using the pole arm to quickly refill the meter incase if they ever get a sneaky hit on you (takes around 50 seconds to do this section) Then I run down and take out the RPG guy and the 2 soldiers afterwards (Usually I'm at the 1.20 mark) I run back to the start point and unequip the pole arm, then if I'm lucky the gekko and mastiffs are all stuck on the wall at the bottom of the ramp which allows me to lure them up one at a time (although this doesn't work sometimes) despite parrying most of the attacks and allowing the gekko to ram me for an easy kill etc. again, if i'm lucky... I'll be at around the 5 minute mark Then I'll run back down and execute the soldiers and then making my way further to execute the RPG guys (again if I'm lucky, this mission cheap shots you a lot!) I haven't got a strategy for the dogs yet, usually I don't have enough time as it'll be 9.30 and there's 2 dogs left, it's difficult to parry the counters with the way the camera is positioned and the fact that there is 4 of them but this is where I use the pole arm and go bat shit crazy on them hoping I can get the triangle and circle prompt to execute them but again, that is very hit and miss Even VR-18 wasn't nearly as difficult as this but the Virtually Flawless trophy is ultra rare compared to this very rare Hero of the Metaverse trophy which to me doesn't make sense as this is a much harder mission. Can anybody offer me any advice as to where I'm going wrong... I have been trying to attack the Mastiffs one at a time but sometimes if I can't lure them one at a time, all 3 will gang up on me and fuck me mortally despite me not even attacking the other 2 :/ Thanks in advance
  7. :platinum: #265 KNACK 2 - Getting the medals is certainly tedious but compared to the first one, it's a lot easier which makes it alot more forgiving but it's just a shame that the first Knack ruined it for me as far as getting into the franchise goes due to it's difficulty because it's sequel is pretty good :)

      @Lorajet I wish I had your mindset when I was playing the first Knack xD 

  8. :platinum: #264 HAKUOKI: EDO BLOSSOMS- Another game I paid no attention too in between my busy life. I would be happy to say I put an offer on a house but it's now been rejected and I need to find out why but I'm adamant that I want this property so I can rent it out 😡

  9. :platinum: #263 DARKSIDERS GENESIS - This is a good game all things considering, I really enjoyed it and didn't realize that I spent nearly 50 hours on the game. Ascarte was a bitch of a boss until I went back with a few more upgrades and then she was easy but the only problem is there is a massive glitch on the Damon boss battle on apocalyptic difficulty where if you die, you don't respawn, it's game over so you have to beat him in one go which is annoying but other than that, give it a go, it's just as good as any of the other Darksiders games :)

  10. :platinum: #262 SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS BATTLE FOR BIKINI BOTTOM REHYDRATED - I've actually got this game on PS2 and I remember it being really good but I can't remember if I had the patience back in the day to get all the socks and spatulas for the 100% completion but nevermind, this is one of the few remasters that I would go out my way and purchase just so I can do it again and whilst it's good, it's also very buggy which doesn't interfere with the gameplay much but it's noticeable and to call it a remaster is honesty an insult, it just looks exactly how it looks on PS2 but just a little bit brighter... comparing it with Crash or Spyro, this one falls below the mark but again, if you can get past all that then it's a nice easy game to chill out too :)

  11. :platinum: #261 DOOM ETERNAL - This was a good game but they've made it way too long than what it should be. Obviously, there's no connection between this and the 2016 Doom which left me scratching my head and the first DLC was pretty sadistic, but I smashed out DLC 2 today in one sitting and it was a lot easier and then finally finished the campaign on the extra life mode but I used a video guide for all the collectables and like I say, it's a good game but it took me about 4 weeks to beat it so I'm just glad to put it down now :)

      Due to my shitty experience with 2016, I might play this one when hell starts to freeze over, but eh, who knows... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      Out of rep points at the moment. I owe you one later on. :P

  12. :platinum: #260 DOUBLE SWITCH 25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION - It's harder than Night Trap in the sense that the enemies/trap patterns are entirely random whereas with Night Trap you can follow a walkthrough. Trying to beat the game for the first time was incredibly frustrating as it gives you no instructions or directions on what you're actually suppose to be doing so I had to look it up online... then there's the practice you need to obtain by knowing what trap to set when the enemy approaches whilst trying to unlock the traps as they come in order to progress the story but once all of that was nailed, the game isn't too bad for a cheesy 90's title and R Lee Ermey stars in it too as the Handyman which is a bonus ^_^ 

  13. :platinum: #259 TERMINATOR RESISTANCE - This was a nice fun easy game, a nice release from the pain of The Last Guardian. I did all the side quests and collectables early on to pop the trophies and then played the game and enjoyed the story afterwards. I've not seen anything past Terminator 3 but the story was cool and I enjoyed banging Baron and Jennifer which got this pervert all erect with excitement xD

  15. :platinum: #257 THE LAST GUARDIAN - An absolute pain in the arse from start to finish. The story itself isn't bad but the trophies are torture. I've done 5 playthroughs of this game listening to hints, trying not to die, pulling spears out of Trico, getting collectables and trying to beat it under 5 hours. I would not recommend this game to anyone if they are hunting for trophies but if you want to play it for fun then go for it but be prepared for shit controls and for Trico to not do whatever he tells you do xD

      I'm definitely not buying the next one they release but I literally made a cup of tea and started the game and 5 minutes later the damn thing took a shit and popped my trophy 😂

    3. Copanele

      Copanele

      Considering how much fun i had with SotC, I imagine that if I would start this game I would die from some dumb thing and then Trico/Rico/catdog animal would poop on me, giving me the trophy. 

       

      Also there should be a correction in your status update. We should be prepared for shit AND controls in order to get the platinum xD Seriously having to see the animal poop... What kind of trophy is that even lmao. 

    4. ChristIllusion12

      ChristIllusion12

      @Copanele To be fair, that trophy would be a trophy that ticks all the right boxes for me because I'm a massive pervert xD but I have no luck or patience, I want everything now and having to catch Trico by chance is just annoying, but definitely steer clear of this game xD 

  16. Doing my thing and venting my frustration on this stupid fucking game and relying on the PSN Gods to help me pop it soon afterwards... or if anybody has any tips then it would be appreciated. The Last Guardian 'Call of Nature' trophy, the randomized one where you have to witness him take a dump... done 4 playthroughs of this game already and he only did it once but I was too late and didn't pop the trophy so now I'm like now what o.0

  17. :platinum: #256 NIGHT TRAP 25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION - There's a bit of a learning curve as it doesn't set out the instructions very well and survivor mode is very hit and miss and luck based on the type of run you're going to get but the game itself is pretty good but the 10+ playthroughs needed to get everything can be quite draining but none the less, it's still worth a go :)

      Congrats! Nice work on this one. :)

       

      Repeated playthroughs are one major thing that usually turns me off from getting a Platinum in a game. I can do one, two playthroughs no problem. Three playthroughs is kind of stretching it but eh I can do it. Anything further than that I'm like, "Nope". xD

    4. ChristIllusion12

      ChristIllusion12

      @Honor_Hand The advantage is that it only takes about 25 minutes to do a playthrough but watching the same scenes over and over again soon becomes a stretch xD 

  18. :platinum: #255 KNACK - This was no easy feat. I did my first playthrough on hard, missed a chest so I had to do another playthrough on hard in order to get all the chests in one playthrough as well as to farm the gems I need for unlock the different knack variants and then some and then finally, the very hard playthrough on a new game with diamond knack and mop up... 3.3 playthroughs for a very frustrating game. I'm still a bit mixed on the story, I might get Knack 2 but I don't know... this one just gives me Jak 2 vibes as in, a bitch overall :/

  19. :platinum: #254 COLLARXMALICE - Another one that I lost interest in almost straight away and just played it at work whilst following the walkthrough until I got the platinum 😅

  20. :platinum: #253 UNTITLED GOOSE GAME - I played this on my friends switch last Christmas and fell in love with it so obviously when they did a physical copy on PS4, I just had to buy it and replay the silliness all over again xD 

  21. :platinum: #252 ARAGAMI - The DLC was bland, mediocre, buggy and annoying in places but the base game is actually very good, I would definitely recommend it... perhaps even call it a PS4 hidden gem 😊

      @Lorajet Be prepared for frustration when you do xD 

  22. :platinum: #251 OBSERVER - I'm not a big fan of horror games, I've always said that but I actually really liked this one as it was psychological horror and based around atmosphere rather than shit just popping out and making you jump scare and the story was pretty good too... it kinda reminds me of Judge Dredd where Dredd is trapped inside the block of buildings and he has to fight his way through. The only problem with it is there is no chapter select and one of the trophies require you to get all the collectables in a single playthrough and if you activate an autosave but miss a collectable then you can be potentially be locked out of going back to grab it, so my first playthrough I missed two collectables, my second playthrough I fucked up half way through and missed a collectable whilst activating an auto save and locking me out, screwed up on my 3rd playthrough as I was following a different guide and then went back to the original guide and finally did it on my 4th playthrough whilst using back up saves to make sure I didn't have to do a 5th one but with all that aside, give this game a play, I liked it and that's saying a lot :)

  23. :platinum: #250 CRASH TEAM RACING NITRO FUELED - Finally, my 250th milestone! I probably would have got this finished sooner if it weren't for changing jobs, working overtime and taking my ex employers to a tribunal but this was a good game, but the Oxide time trials are sadistic as fuck... well, I spent 5 hours trying to beat Crash Cove and then it was pretty much smooth sailing after that with the exception of Dragon Mines but all in all, it was good to relive childhood nostalgia again :)

  24. CTR Dragon Mines Oxide Time Trial - What a bastard 😅

    1. AusLeviathan

      AusLeviathan

      I remember it took me about 2 hours of replaying this time trial over and over again to finally do it with less than a second to spare. The only way I was able to do it was to get the timing right of boosting into the shortcut on the first two laps, I didn't even bother attempting it on the third lap because of how difficult it is and I'd already messed up twice before. It's been like two months now and I still never want to see Dragon Mines again.

    2. ChristIllusion12

      ChristIllusion12

      @AusLeviathan I didn't even use the shortcut, I felt it slowed me down but I made sure to hit a turbo on the speed pad at the top of the spiral stairwell thing and that flew me over the gravel and past the finish line :)

    3. Olivia Servant

      Olivia Servant

      Oh yeah that part I fucking hate. Took me a few tries to get the whole rhythm race right.
