  1. My bad. It's end of September. Thanks for pointing it out!
  2. Gaming By Numbers Everyone's favorite PSNProfiles Event is back for a fifth year! Update Here's a LINK to this year's spreadsheet. The Basics 1) You will be playing up to 10 different games for this event, with one unique instance of the numbers 0-9 as the last digit in the game's URL. 2) Badges will be filled in with colors corresponding to each number. You will have a fully-colored badge if you complete all 10 digits! 2) Here is an example list that would earn a full badge: Final Fantasy VII Remake is 0 as its URL ID is 10660: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/10660-final-fantasy-vii-remake Returnal is 1 as its URL ID is 12751: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/12751-returnal Tales of Xillia (NA) is 2 as its URL ID is 2062: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/2062-tales-of-xillia Marvel's Spider-Man is 3 as its URL ID is 8143: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/8143-marvels-spider-man Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is 4 as its URL ID is 8864: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/8864-sekiro-shadows-die-twice Kingdom Hearts III is 5 as its URL ID is 8675: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/8675-kingdom-hearts-iii Ratchet & Clank (PS4) is 6 as its URL ID is 4536: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/4536-ratchet-clank Tales of Xillia (EU) is 7 as its URL ID is 2077: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/2077-tales-of-xillia Heavy Rain (PS4) is 8 as its URL ID is 4398: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/4398-heavy-rain Heavy Rain (PS3) is 9 as its URL ID is 249: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/249-heavy-rain Resources Feel free to check out the 2018 Tableau Dashboard, 2019 Tableau Dashboard, 2020 Google Sheets, and 2021 Google Sheets to see all of the data for the last four events! Note: I have done my best to provide accurate information for all the games/data listed in the linked documents, but it is each participant's individual responsibility to ensure accuracy for the games they complete, including-- but not limited to-- accuracy of the represented digit, validation that servers are still online/completion is obtainable, correct listing of completed games, etc. Rewards You will get an event badge, designed by @Man of Inaction, within a few weeks of the event ending so long as you complete at least 5 numbers. The event badges will be semi-unique as it will get "colored in" based on the games you complete, like a Color-By-Numbers activity! Important Dates Sign-up Ends: Midnight, July 31, 2022 Event Starts: 12:00:01 AM, August 1, 2022 Event Ends: Midnight, September 30, 2022 --Timezone is MST Rules 1) As you could probably tell from the examples, you are allowed to stack games! Different trophy lists have different IDs for different regions, different systems, or even physical versus digital releases! 2) Your game will count so long as you get 100% of the base game between the event start and end dates. If your game has a platinum, this means getting the platinum is necessary, but you do not need to complete any associated DLC. Similarly, for a game that has no platinum, you will only need to complete the base game trophies (example: Little Nightmares has several DLC packs-- only the 13 base game trophies need to be completed). 3) If you got 100% for the base game before the event started, that game cannot be used for the event even if you still have DLC to complete. However, you can use games that you have made progress in before the event started (i.e.-- you do not need to start games from 0% completion). 4) The game's URL ID has to match the number category for it to count for that category. No exceptions! Make sure you are clicking on the correct region/system/version link before playing your game! 5) You do not have to complete your games in any specific order. Game Updates You don't need to submit a list beforehand, or even at all! I will be updating everyone who has signed up for the event in a Google Sheets spreadsheet on a weekly-ish basis by looking at what games are completed on their profile. However, it's always fun to see what everyone intends to play, so feel free to discuss your gaming plans and progress! @Jens will be assisting with updates this time around! Note: As I am updating these games based on what I see on profiles rather than what people post in the forum, whichever game I see first (usually your first completed game) will be recorded in the spreadsheet. The specific game you play does not affect your badge, only the number; a gamer completing 10 EZPZs will get the same badge as someone completing 10 URs. If you don't want a certain game documented in the spreadsheet, then maybe you shouldn't play it to begin with. Any requests to list a different game in the spreadsheet will be refused unless it's due to error on my part-- such as listing a game you didn't actually complete, etc; this makes my life easier as this event tend to get quite a lot of people signing up.
  3. Ok y'all-- need some iconic blade-wielding characters from games. Spears and axes count as blades. Thank you 😊

      @Beyondthegrave07, Nintendo would actually be great because I'm not familiar with it anymore.

      I'm kind of doing a farce data science article for the swordfighting website I'm writing for The working title is, "Do Swords Make You Look Cool?"

      Basically I'm looking at people's Instagram accounts and comparing Likes and Comments on photos where people have swords and do not have swords to see if pictures with swords get more. I've come to the realization that if I just look at the pages of sword practitioners, there's likely a bias because obviously the sword community would be interested in swords. I thought one good control group would be cosplayers because there's a good chance cosplayers have multiple costumes, some which have swords and some which do not, and that people looking at these Instagram accounts aren't following them specifically for sword content.


      Tldr; writing an article about how cool swords are and need to look up cosplayers

    4. Beyondthegrave07


      Ohhh, well. Let me cover you on Nintendo @eigen-space , or at least, Fire Emblem. xD I'm sure some of them are cosplayed quite often.

  4. What is the camera perspective from a game like Final Fantasy IX called where you're in third person but running through a fixed background with a fixed camera angle? I know it's third person of some kind, but I don't think the subgenre is called "Fixed Camera". When Googling that, it comes up with other types of games where you have an over-the-shoulder view but cannot use the joystick to pivot the camera around the character.

    I know when you're in the overworld it's a top-down third person with rotation, but I don't know what it's called when in dungeons/towns.

      Isometric is a specific type of parallel projection with equal angles between axes. It's good for tile-based games where you don't see the horizon, and everything appears the same size no matter where they are. Looking at some FF9 screenshots, I don't think it uses this view, I see different ones. Maybe the overworld does, I'm not sure.


      The fixed camera doesn't have any other name, AFAIK.


      In the 90's, the fixed camera was used in games with pre-rendered backgrounds. Developers would achieve better graphics at the cost of camera movement. Maybe pre-rendered is the word you had in mind? 🤔 Even though it's about the graphics instead of the camera type. 

      Wait, nevermind. People already mentioned pre-rendered graphics above, oops.

      @eigen-space I believe the category you are thinking of is a static camera with a mix of fixed panning when you are in a location/town/dungeon. Similar to FFIX, Resident Evils older games use fixed cameras and fixed panning cameras that follow the character on a "track". Since you normally don't have any control of the camera, it is categorically fixed to be static or pan along the map as needed.

    4. enaysoft


      Yeah like Slava, Isometric is not 3D, as it's 2D or 3D but in plan view, which is without distance so lines don't bend into the distance..

  5. I just wanted to drop a link to this Google Sheets document that I used to help me finish the game. It is super detailed with all the maps and nearly everything else you'd want to know about the game. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1JCgdir76fjPvVMQwX287lc5BCNiZY6fA/edit#gid=313293529
  6. Platinum #174 - Dungeon Encounters - My friend said this might be his new favorite game. So I tried it. I will never listen to that friend again regarding games. It sucked at first, got better, but then got worse because it was boring and repetitive.

    1. DeadOrAlive4


      Sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the game but hey you got a new platinum out of it!

    2. MidnightDragon


      Congrats for what it's worth.

    3. ihadalifeb4this
  7. Thank you for the information! I'm so happy that I can finally play this and not have my completion % suffer!
  8. It's songs from the base list. You can't do kids or extreme modes, and songs from unlimited do not count. This leaves you with 41 songs to get the 40.
  9. If anyone here is also a PC gamer and wants to support Ukraine, you get a TON of games with this bundle.



  10. Hello! A little, crying pink blobby friend told me it was your birthday today so I hope you enjoy your day! 


    1. MidnightDragon


      Happy birthday! 🥳

    2. eigen-space


      OMG! Birthday Tonberry!

  11. Well well well... Guess it's that day again, huh?

    Happy Birthday!

    Love you buddy, hope you'll have a wonderful day!

      Looks like we have the February birthday crew over here :P. Happy birthday Eigen! Hope you have a good one.

  12. Platinum #173 - Void Terrarium - I hated this game until I got some excellent advice from my bestie @Jens! After that, it was pretty fun 😁

      "Coaching" a #1 doesn't take all that much, hard to take credit for that! 😛

  13. Pretty sure I hate rogue-likes.

    1. Jens


      Pretty sure I still like you.

      Yes, they are definitely not for everyone... That RNGeezus can be one fickle mistress at times!

  14. This controller add-on for gamers with disabilities is pretty cool.

      you know i seen this article, and all i could think about is how come this hasn't happened already by Sony? im sure there are 3rd party etc, and Xbox had their own disabilities adaptive controller... like ages ago? 


      Still, better late than never. Nintendo kind of works within the joycon being single handed for multiple games as well.

    3. Yuna4353


      @eigen-space I am very lucky that I have been with my CP my whole life, and can only not use my right hand. If I had been disabled hallway through my life then yes, I just adapted to only being able to use my one hand due to my disability all my life and knowing no different 

    4. PostalDudeRus


      I remember reading about this one


      I really thought Sony had something like this for their consoles

  15. USPS is shipping out free COVID home tests for anyone that wants them (I'm assuming US only). Sign up here:
