  1. Hey, would you want to join the Alabama Trophy Wives? We have our own Discord for planning as well if you'd like to join that.
  2. Oh shit, thanks so much! Really appreciate you doing this giveaway. Just in time for the Black Friday PSN sale, too.
  3. Idling sucks for others, but it's really the best way to do this trophy unless you can grind for more than a few hours a day with a boosting partner. The person I met for boosting could only do an hour or two a day so it made it a slog. Idled every night and it took me something like 10-12 days of grinding. I would earn 5-10k per day of boosting and depending on if the lobby shut down halfway through the night, sometimes up to 6k idling. Don't even try getting the coins through regular races. There's a reason every lobby is full of idlers. Besides that, biggest piece of advice I can give is: never sell your cars. You do not need gold. Ever. By my calculations it would take at least 100k gold to get 25k gears anyway. It's much easier to get gold than gears with boxes anyway. What you want to do is upgrade commons and then dismantle them - since upgrading a common costs 200 gears, and adds 50 to the car's value (as opposed to 500 and 100 for rares), it basically means for every gear you earn you get 25% more - of course that stacks, so it's realistically 25% of 25% of 25%, etc. Probably like 33% more overall. At 500 coins for a single box, which will likely give you a common that dismantles for 50 gears, that translates to a 10:1 coin to gear ratio. Based on that, if you were starting from scratch, you would likely need to earn 200k coins (keeping in mind the upgrade + dismantle loop) to earn 25k from scratch. Luckily the campaign gives you a fair amount of gears, and sometimes you get lucky with STH cars which are worth 500 - I lost count but I probably got something like 5. Not worth save scumming for IMO. I ended up getting 100k coins on the same day I got 25k gears, but you'll probably earn the coins much sooner than the gears. Anyway, hopefully the passes make the grind more bearable. This game's reward system is a mess - the game feels very sparse overall. Never play games at launch, folks!
  4. Just hit 50% yesterday! Not a terrible 50% - thank god this competition doesn't require getting the Nightmare trophies as those seem like they're a nightmare.
  5. Just got the game. I'll enter, thanks.
  6. If you're going to delete my post for responding to someone claiming that I said things I've never said, at least delete the post with blatant lies in it as well. I never claimed that China outperformed any country except the US in terms of pandemic response, hence why simply closing the borders to them was irrelevant, and again, not a substitute for actual pandemic response.
  7. The numbers speak for themselves. Secrecy aside, China actually made an attempt to lock its spread down, and eventually succeeded - meanwhile we had US politicians doing their best imitations of Lord Farquaad. The west's China fetish is ridiculous, and you're fooling yourself if you don't think it's political. There's a reason why Republicans drummed up calling it the "Chinese virus" and so on and so forth - it was to divert blame for their own willful lack of action onto a foreign entity, as it always is. America, and really much of the west as a whole, has this bad habit of telling people they smell like shit while camping in the sewers.
  8. Ah yes, implementing a travel ban on a country that actually handled its pandemic well is definitely a substitute for preventing an epidemic in the US. We did jack shit to prevent its spread. But please, tell us how Trump heroically prevented the US from being the world leader in COVID cases, even compared to countries with multiple times its population.
  9. You know, I somehow have reservations as to whether a working class person trying to save money on an expensive hobby is really comparable to million-billion dollar corporations swimming in cash and yet still cutting corners at every chance they can get. Maybe that's just me, though.
  10. Might be fun, but jesus christ is that a convoluted name.
  11. Even if you have emails enabled it's entirely random who gets the private queues. Like I said to the other guy, try following PS5 restock Twitters / Wario64 for the links to public queues as they become available.
  12. You don't sign up for it, if you follow Twitter accounts like Wario64 they'll post the public queue links when they're available. They are US only though, yeah. As far as I can tell, it's random. I got one right before the last stimulus hit and then haven't gotten one since despite having money to get one now, just been chancing it with public queues, lol.
  13. Been a bit; been working on Going Under and a few other indie games on and off, as well as my first playthrough of Divinity 2, which I will probably make an attempt to platinum. Also started clearing black series rally tracks in Trackmania Turbo; currently on 185. Platinum #118: Lair of the Clockwork God When I first passed by Lair of the Clockwork God, I wrote it off as a weird indie game and didn't even give it the cursory steam review checking. On my second pass through the sale I said, "why not?" and checked it out - only to discover that it's a successor to the Ben There, Dan That and Time Gentleman, Please! point and click games of my youth. It's a point and click / platformer hybrid with great sprite work, a lot of meta-fuckery, and a vulgar ass sense of humor, which is just about all you could want for a game you spend 6$ for.The game is solid, overall; it's satire from the ground up; you start the game with one character explaining that he's now too hip for point and click games, and as such is now a platformer, while the other obstinately refuses to so much as jump - and such the dynamic is introduced; one character interacts with everything and combines items while the other jumps around like an asshole, standing on buttons and so on and so forth. The story very quickly goes batshit, but essentially you're tasked with teaching a robot emotions, providing a bunch of emotion themed levels with varied themes. These are all pretty good and well designed, and it makes for a good amount of gameplay variety, although some of the end game levels get a bit on the short side. The game also features a very short, parody visual novel which is essential to experience the full game.In terms of gameplay, it's as tight as it needs to be. The platforming as Dan can be a bit rough at times but is overall pretty solid, and serves as a series of fun intermissions to walking around as Ben and interacting with everything. The adventure game mechanics can fall into "interact with everything using everything" sometimes, but I only had to look up hints once or twice. The game's hilarity and story alone make the game worthwhile, but the platforming is a nice touch. One thing I will say is if you start this game, make sure to take care of the invisible wall trophy or else you'll have to start a new playthrough just for it. CURRENT BACKLOG:

      you know what it was about? i remember the fall guys drama lol

  15. It is hard, probably due to the quantity of people trying to get them, but I'd imagine it's the fairest since you don't have to race to buy one within a few minutes or else they go out of stock, like you do with Walmart restocks and such. I've tried three times and always been at the back of the line when they were sold out as well, but I'm going to keep trying with them.
