  1. 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.
  2. Felt like I should start a post about the cross-console trophy bugs that I've encountered. When you play on one console and move over to another console, all your progress is transfered with you (except for stickers, they are reset). However, trophies do not autopop for things you have already completed. The trophies I know for sure are bugged are: We spared no expense... - Spend 10,000 mojo in the gift machine - This trophy has issues if you already unlocked all rewards from the gift machine on your first console. The only gift machine items available for purchase on the second console will be 48 stickers (for some reason sticker progress does not carry over between the two consoles). This amounts to only 4800 mojo that you can spend in the gift machine.Time To Start a New Collection/ Skins Enthusiast/ Skins Addict - Unlock 1/10/20 Skins - This trophy has issues if you already unlocked all skins on your first console. There will be no skins available to unlock on your second console.A Long Road Ahead/ What? Already??? - Reach level 5/100 - Your current level will be carried over to your second console, so you cannot "re-reach" these earlier levels. Edit: You actually can get these trophies... you just have to earn +5 and +100 levels to your current level (so if you're level 100, you'll get the trophies at level 105 and 200). There may be other trophies that are bugged as well, but these ones for sure are bugged. Please post on this thread in the Ubisoft forums. The more people that post, the more likely this will be addressed: https://forums.ubisoft.com/showthread.php/2351306-BUG-PS4-to-PS5-Trophy-Issues This is what I've tried to circumvent progress being loaded over, but none of it worked: Deleting all Just Dance save files on both PS4 and PS5 Starting the game on a blank console profile (won't let you play unless you're connected to PSN) Unlinking PSN account from Ubisoft account Creating a brand new Ubisoft account Contact Ubisoft support to reset account (they cannot reset)
  3. My bad. It's end of September. Thanks for pointing it out!
  4. 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

  6. 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.

      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..

  7. 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
  8. 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.

  9. Thank you for the information! I'm so happy that I can finally play this and not have my completion % suffer!
  10. 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.
  11. If anyone here is also a PC gamer and wants to support Ukraine, you get a TON of games with this bundle.

      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.

      @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

  16. Tails of Iron - Writing a guide for a game with 200+ collectibles and ~20 boss fights is exhausting and taking up my PS5's memory.... 3.5GB and counting.

      If one gets it done, it's you my friend! I already know that it will turn out great, without even having to look at it ;)

  17. You would have problems with The Best Like No One Ever Was trophy playing on an unpatched version. There were also some game balance issues addressed by patches, so you'd have a harder time unpatched.
  18. Just as an FYI, I've emailed the devs to see what they have to say about this in addition to some other problems (Rainbow Mess is glitching on some people, Time Empress can use Perfect Cure as many times as she wants again). I updated the trophy guide recently to address some of these issues the new patch caused.
  19. Platinum #172 - Alternate Jake Hunter: Daedalus: The Awakening of Golden Jazz - Okay-ish visual novel with detective components. Story could have been better. But the music was great. I still don't know who Jake Hunter is or what Golden Jazz is... but you do find out about Daedalus.

  20. About a week left to vote for your favorite guides in this year's Guide of the Year event! Show your guide writers some love!

     

    There's a ton of great guides this year! And if you don't know who to vote for, you can always default to my Cris Tales Guide 😉

  21. There's even problems with this though, depending on how the seller is selling through Amazon. Amazon allows sellers to comingle their products in the Amazon warehouses, so even if you buy from Seller A, you might actually get the product from Seller B for a number of different reasons (for example, Seller A's product might be in a warehouse 200 miles away whereas Seller B's is only 20 miles away). This can happen if the product is "Fulfilled by Amazon" because that means it is shipped from an Amazon warehouse even if the seller is 3rd party. If the item is sold and shipped by the 3rd party, then this shouldn't be a problem.
  22. I learned that when you're looking at your game library on the PS5, you can hide games. Not sure if that option was there on the PS4 because I never checked. But this is a great feature because now I can hide all the games I've completed so I only see my backlog when searching for which game to play next.

      @NERVergoproxy, exactly! I guess I didn't notice the feature on the PS4 lol

      Honor_Hand

      No kidding, I learned from this feature like a month or two ago too, even though it's been on PS4 for years now, lol. xD

  23. Most of my games don't allow for tutorial skipping on the first playthrough so this hasn't happened to me because I ignored tutorials. However... there have been times where I put down the game for whatever reason (usually because DLC has been released) to come back to it later and have forgotten the controls. Final Fantasy XV was one of those due to DLC.... might happen with Maneater DLC too once I get around to it.
  24. Platinum #171 - Nightmares From the Deep: The Cursed Heart

    I like these kinds of puzzle games so it was fun to play after having a little bit of gaming indecision. Did all but two puzzles without using a guide; could have figured them out on my own, but I was impatient.

      The cutscenes were ok. The animation was pretty grainy but maybe they did that on purpose? The only thing that bothered me about the voice acting is that it didn't line up with mouth movement lol

      Konami reminding us that they definitely don't make games anymore, well not good ones anyway.

      They've already whored out their IP to be used on Pachinko machines, I bet they couldn't believe their luck when NFTs came along. Already expecting the outrage and no doubt Jim Sterling's video about it when they start selling SIlent HIll 2 NFTs.

      Surprise... there is one game they're involved with now that sounds interesting, GetsuFumaDen Undying Moon. I learned about this one just now, and found it on Steam as an Early Access title. Konami is involved, with the indie studio GuruGuru as the lead developer. It's been getting mostly positive reviews, with some comments about it being a rogue-like metroidvania. I'm tempted to get it. It's getting a Switch port, but hopefully a PS4 one will follow. The original GFD was released on Nintendo Famicom in Japan only.
