  1. So, I've made it to this boss four times and each time I barely make a dent in it before I die. What's the correct strategy to follow for this boss? The only "strategy" guide I've found doesn't actually offer any clear pointers and makes it sound really easy. It makes me think that I'm missing something here. Normally I'd watch a video of someone else fighting the boss, but there don't seem to be any out there.
  2. I think you may be misunderstanding how the callout works. It's just one player challenging another to complete a particular game in their backlog. It isn't a competition between the two people to see who can complete the game first.
  3. Lost Dimension 100 + 70 - 22.25 + 0 = 147.75
  4. You're absolutely right that there's no reason why Yakuza 3 is an RPG yet Yakuza 4 isn't. Or why Ghost of Tsushima isn't an RPG but God of War is. As I understand it, the rationale behind using PSNP's genre labelling was to have an objective, clear-cut list of what did and did not count so as to avoid arguments. I can see the benefit of that, even if it means that some outliers make it in. IMHO, including other games on the basis of having them having leveled skills would stretch an already nebulous genre past the breaking point.
  5. Yes, I think the scoring could use some adjustments. Some suggestions: Taking into account length would be nice, although hard to do objectively. My thought (which I haven't really looked into in practice) would be to use the time from a trophy guide (or the "Main + Extra" time listed on if there's no guide) and award points in 40 hour increments past the first 40 hours. So a game that was 41-79 hours would be +50 points, 80-119 would be +100 points, etc., for example. This would also reduce the big impact DLC has on scores. For the speed bonus, I'd recommend using a flat percentage rather than finishing in the top 25 as this really penalizes those playing games that have been around a while and have been popular. Finishing in the top 25 in Skyrim, for example, means being in the top .07% of times. By comparison, there are lots of less popular games where it's kind of trivial to be in the top 25. The list of Let's Play games is really arbitrary. If there's going to be a bonus to promote those games, I don't think it should be a x2 multiplier (and it definitely shouldn't stack with other multipliers). +50 seems good enough, to be honest.
  6. Is it faster than this?
  7. Eiyu Densetsu: Ao no Kiseki Evolution 100 + 70 - 22.86 + 75 (beast) = 222.14
  8. That kind of reminds me of Valkyrie Drive, where there's a trophy for earning 5 million XP despite the fact that you hit the level cap at like 3 million.
  9. Ghost of Tsushima would make this effectively redundant, IMHO.
  10. Isn't this only the second Spiders game to be on PS+?
  11. I participated in some backlog-centered events this year, so I didn't really try to play most of the games I bought. South Park: The Video Game Collection Resident Evil: Veronica X Hitman HD Enhanced Collection Days Gone Dying Light X-Blades Kingdom Hearts All-in-One Package Planescape: Torment/Icewind Dale Baldur's Gate/Baldur's Gate 2 Pillars of Eternity The Technomancer The Shadow Warrior Collection Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Assassin's Creed: Rogue Doom (2015) Metro Exodus Far Cry: New Dawn Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr The Surge Watch Dogs 2 Bloodborne - The Old Hunters DLC Jydge (PS4/PS5) Bomber Crew Phantom Doctrine Frostpunk Shadow Tactics Momodora Neon Chrome 100% Death Stranding Ghost of Tsushima - in progress The Last of Us Part II Maneater (PS5) Resident Evil 3 Spyro Reignited Trilogy Control Hitman 2 Cyberpunk 2077 So, I bought 46 games in all, of which I completed 13. That's not a great ratio. But overall I completed 65 games in 2020 (10 PS3, 7 PSV, 45 PS4, 3 PS5), which means that I could actually potentially clear my backlog this decade! Okay, that's not going to happen, but at least it's getting smaller.
  12. There isn't a topic for the 2021 edition yet. I wouldn't be surprised if there is no event next year.
  13. I haven't been able to find anything about the NA version being glitched (and it would be kind of weird since the EU version is fine). I've been tempted to pick it up myself; played it on PC and enjoyed it. Someone mentioned Shadowrun, but that's PC-only AFAIK.
  14. Not to get too picky here, but XCOM and XCOM2 are themselves "XCOM-clones". It was the original X-COM from 1994 that created the term (and honestly was better than the two recent games, IMHO).
  15. Just format it. A Vita can only have one user/account, so you don't have to worry about the previous owner. I haven't heard of or experienced any issues earning trophies with used physical games.
