  1. I'm so glad that I got burnt out after finishing all the online trophies.
  2. Three words - Thieves landing massacre
  3. I'm fairly sure Activision is not going to divert resources towards a last gen 8 year old game so your complaints are going to be falling on deaf ears. Don't get me wrong @talespagni, I do feel your pain as online trophies are the bane of my trophy hunting experience. But at the end of the day, you've got to realise that playstation "trophies" are merely digital awards that have no bearing on our real lives. It's times like these where you've got to decide whether or not it's worth your time and wellbeing to stress over such trivial matters. The fulfilment we derive from trophy hunting is sometimes as much of a curse as it is a blessing.
  4. How does one edit time stamps anyway just out of curiosity? I’m assuming you can’t really hack the psnprofiles site so you would have to resort to a modded/hacked console?
  5. I recently partook in a boosting session and successfully got all the onslaught trophies. Everyone in the group initially had trouble joining up with each other but we solved this by having the host use a nat 1 connection on their router.
  6. No multiplayer = No microtransactions 😁 If this is true, my deep respect for Naughty Dog will only have further deepened. It would be quite a welcome change from the pay to win bs that was in Uncharted 4 survival.
  7. Slight 3 month bump but I can confirm that the devil horns glitch will still work even if you've installed the awakened dlc. The only inconvenience is that you have to delete both the game as well as the contents of its utility folder and then redownload it as well as complete one additional playthrough. Here are the steps to activate the glitch if you've downloaded awakened: 1. If you haven't already, complete a playthrough on classic difficulty WITHOUT DELETING ANYTHING first. This will enable you to unlock the devils horns 2. Delete your dead space 3 data in the GAME DATA UTILITY folder as well as the game itself. Don't touch anything from the SAVE DATA UTILITY 3. Redownload the game without awakened dlc from the ps store 4. Here is the crucial step - DISABLE INTERNET ACCESS from your ps3 before you load the game up and then attempt to load your classic playthrough. The game will deny the save and will state that it is either corrupted or needs the awakened dlc. This is perfectly ok as you do this step to enable the game to recognise that you've completed classic difficulty and to also receive the devil's horns. 5. Create a new save file and replay the game again preferably on the casual difficulty. If you've done the previous steps correctly, the game should tell you in the main menu that you've unlocked the devil's horns and that they've been transferred to your safe. Additionally, you'll have access to them during this playthrough once you reach chapter three so you can speedrun this step. 6. The option for new game plus should be unlocked and you should now have access to the pure survival and hardcore difficulties. Just reach chapter three once again and you'll get the devil's horns. The rest of your playthroughs will be a breeze and you'll earn your nice shiny platinum in no time!
  8. It's not a 9/10, more like 6-7/10 if you use your saves strategically and learn the enemy spawns.
  9. About to go to the store and pick up a copy of the game. Should I avoid playing it until there's a patch rolled out that definitively fixes the bug? I'm really tempted to jump right in and race online.
  10. I get that Naughtydog is looking to retire their servers from last gen but why Last of Us though? The game's only about 6 years old and from what i've heard, the multiplayer is still relatively active
  11. Hey sorry for the bump but does anyone know if you're still able to do the glitch on the digital version of the game by deleting and redownloading it if you've already downloaded the awakened dlc as well?
  12. I actually really like the way Sony has handled this generation. They've managed to recover from their slow Ps3 launch and comprehensively overtake their main competitor as the premier gaming platform for now. My one gripe with the company however, has been their inability/unwillingness to add backwards compatibility on the ps4 to support legacy titles that cannot be played anywhere else but the ps3. This is an aspect that I think that the guys at Microsoft have really nailed. Obviously, I'm giving them a pass this time due to the sheer difficulty of having to cater for the radically different cell processor but should this trend continue onto the next generation, it will reveal the sheer greedy corporate nature of the company that really goes against their slogan "For the players" Because i'm honestly starting to get sick of the word "remastered" being slapped onto the end of every legacy title of the previous generation which just screams cash grab. As for the exclusives, I can see that they're leaning more towards the narratively driven cinematic side of things and focussing less on gameplay aspects. I'm perfectly fine with this, the games to me are still very enjoyable in their own right but I get that they may not be everyone's cup of tea.
  13. Wow, I'm very impressed that they took the time and effort to swiftly fix the servers on a 10 year old game. Props to you Naughty Dog!
  14. I actually used to avoid games that had hard trophies/platinums because of my ocd completionist nature. However, I came to the realisation that I would only be doing myself a disservice by missing out on great games because of a few petty digital achievements. I'm glad I made this choice as I could finally experience great titles such as Uncharted 4, Dead space 2, Metal gear solid 4 and Wolfenstein 2. In the process, I even managed to achieve the hardest trophies like completing the mein leben mode in wolf 2 which was quite a satisfying moment for me considering that I'm pretty bad at fps shooter games. Doing this really gives you a whole new perspective on the trophy hunting experience. Trophies I once thought were impossibilities for my skillset were achieved and in doing so, makes you really feel like there's no plat that's out of your reach so long as you're willing to have a go and set your mind to achieving it. Plus you get to flex your trophy collection and bask in the fact that you are one of the few gamers that have managed to reach the top 😜
  15. To anyone who is reading this: Breach mode is up as of the time of this writing for me and another person at least. I checked with a friend and both of us could log in fine. Use this possibly limited opportunity to get those trophies as the servers could go down any time.
  16. After numerous amounts of attempts I finally managed to complete the dreaded Mein Leben mode! I started around late November of last year and basically tried one attempt per day with a few 5 day long breaks in between. Going against the advice of numerous people on these forums, I actually skipped the I am death incarnate playthrough and jumped straight into Mein Leben from the normal bring it on difficulty. In terms of preparation, I watched a few successful Mein Leben videos side by side and basically mixed and matched various strats the players used in order to fit my preferred playstyle. The main videos I used for strats were Kreeper V's, Bigbossimbeamer's, Ixifalcon's and Blu3angel's. Overall, I would not consider this mode to be an "impossibility" as some players may think as the ability to succeed comes down to your willingness to persevere through the grind and hours upon hours of soul crushing practice runs. For me personally, the run comes down to a single turning point which is the courthouse. If you can get past this stage, then the Mein Leben run is essentially yours to lose as everything else falls within your control. A good strat with a high percentage chance of success includes the one by gaming with abyss as seen in this video: The one single iteration I made to this strat comes as the first phase finishes by the time the room shakes and the two heavies drop in. After you take care of the supersoldiers with the heavy gun, immediately drop it and switch your left weapon to the sturmwegher and your right weapon to the shockhammer (make sure you have collected these weapons when you kill the previous soldiers beforehand). Afterwards, run into the corridor and MAKE SURE TO TAKE DOWN THE DOG before running up to the weapon supply cache. Then you can follow the rest of the video's strats. For the final fight on the Ausmerzer, follow bigbossimbeamers strat which deals with the six supersoldiers using shockhammers. As you run into the underground H corridor though, switch to dual sturmweghers and camp behind the pipe like Rare platinum as seen after the 6:40 mark and then follow his strats. Trust me, doing these strats will save you a lot of heartbreak. Other than that, I would like to reiterate jossmilan7412's comments on this trophy. I really do not consider myself as a great fps player but like him/her, I was able to achieve what I once thought was impossible through sheer hard determination alone. If you really want to pop this trophy, you will do so eventually provided you are willing to sink a lot of disposable time into practice. It feels really rewarding and self gratifying once you reach the final cutscene and So overall, getting this trophy has been quite the journey for me and I wish the best of luck to various trophy hunters who may choose to attempt to complete this sadistic game mode in the future πŸ˜‚
  17. Adding to Thatmuttguy's post, Infamous 2 and festival of blood are also Sony first party titles that have online related trophies.
  18. I sent a ticket to square enix support two days ago and they sent me this reply: Thank you for contacting SQUARE ENIX support,We apologize for the trouble you've experienced with DEUS EX: MANKIND DIVIDED. The issue is currently under investigation. Unfortunately, we cannot provide an ETA as we are working with Sony to resolve the issue. We hope this information was helpful and if you are still experiencing issues, please feel free to respond back.Thank you for contacting the SQUARE ENIX Support Center. I've been lurking on other forums for posts regarding this issue and it turns out that devs are aware about the problem and supposedly trying to fix it.
  19. Ignore the first darknetfile and progress through breach until you unlock and complete the second one. Once I did that, I got the trophy although the game did not award me a booster pack
  20. I can log into breach perfectly fine but the trophy for completing a dark net file will not pop. Everytime I finish the final cutscene of the first file, The game automatically logs me out of breach as I "cannot connect to the square enix servers" So unless there's a problem on my end which I highly doubt there is, the plat is unobtainable until the devs fix their server side issues Update: It turns out that the trophies are still obtainable at least up to tier 2 servers. I continued playing through breach and completed the second darknet file which popped me the trophy. It seems that the first is bugged out for some reason.
  21. It's a very good game in its own right. It may be considered the weakest in the series, but most of the backlash pretty much comes from a butthurt fanbase who expected a sequel that would match the highs achieved by its predecessor. Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed the game a lot - even to the extent of the first although I will admit that the game comes with its fair share of problems. The main ones are the soul memory matchmaking system, unfair and often ganky enemy placements and mostly uninspired bosses. The health penalty system is another criticism towards a lesser extent as it becomes a non-issue once you progress further through the game and find a certain ring. Overall, the negative reputations that you often hear with this game are the result of overinflated expectations along with a few backwards steps in terms of game design.
  22. It's nice to have the option to play your games in 4k. I get that we're slowly transitioning into an era where graphics can be seen as a focal point for game development but 1080p hd resolutions for gaming are by no means bad at all. I have a ps4 slim and i'm perfectly happy with it. People here should not be pressured or feel ashamed that they don't have the latest and greatest system to play their games on because at the end of the day, these machines will all play the same game perfectly well. In regards to the performance gap, it may be significant but i'm not shelling out extra cash for a 4k tv just to experience the improvement. You guys should know that technology is continually improving. Ever heard of Moore's law? The pro released in 2016 so therefore, we should have gaming systems that can far exceed its performance capabilities. The next generation is knocking on our doorstep and before long, the pro will be considered an outdated piece of hardware. At the end of the day, I don't really give a damn about the machine's specs. Slim, pro and og ps4 owners will still get to experience the same quality games we've come to expect and love from Sony's flagship console. And that's all that matters.
  23. So guys, I just saw on Playstation's official youtube channel that Destiny 2 and God of war 3 remastered would be released for September's free ps plus game lineup. For those that already own this game, I want to know what your thoughts on it are and if it's worth downloading if you're a sucker for 100%ing trophy lists. For me personally, I have heard from many that the game was somewhat of a disappointment and ultimately would not have even considered spending any money on it. But feel free to agree to disagree with me!
  24. These days I trophy hunt with an "all in or nothing attitude". I don't know about you guys but it just irks me when I see a completion bar that isn't 100% filled. For dlc, I either wait until there's a price drop or wait until a gold/complete edition of a game is released.
  25. Here's where I get my info for PS3 servers:
