  1. Yeah, I'll definitely have to do that since I have multiples of some games like Jak and Daxter. And yes, I like the Crash remasters a lot. I'm most of the way through all of them but dropped them for some reason. I actually only need to beat 1 more time trial in the first one. Yup, I'm going to be adding those over time. Doing 75 at once just seemed really daunting and I wanted to get a basic list done and posted first.
  2. I'm not feeling well right now so I decided to work on a trophy checklist because it seemed like a good distraction. I love talking about games, and having my own space to post about what I'm playing sounds nice. I'm going to edit this pretty heavily later, but for right now all of my platinums are listed. I'll add opinions and ratings for them sometime later. About Me: My name is Sammy, I'm in my mid-twenties, and I spend way too much time online. I started playing video games when I was 4 years old and they've always been my biggest passion in life. I'm really into collecting systems and games from every generation, and I care a lot about the history of video games. My collection is pretty sizable now and I have stuff dating all the way back to the Magnavox Odyssey. That also means I have way too much stuff to play and I have a ridiculous backlog that goes way beyond the current gen stuff. It also means I'm really bad at committing to playing just one game at a time. I'd like to finish out most of my games list even if I don't go for 100% in everything. Honestly, I have a really bad tendency to drop games even if I'm enjoying them. I also multitask a lot while I play games, so I tend to play games that don't need my complete attention. It gives me something to do with my hands while I watch movies or listen to music. I definitely want to start spending more time playing and talking about things that I enjoy instead of playing so many "filler" games, but bad habits die hard ya know. Please feel free to recommend me games or come chat! I'm a huge fan of platformers and horror games, so please tell me about the ones you're playing. I'm more than happy to make new friends if you want to add me on PSN or discord. Currently Playing: Kingdom Hearts II Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2 World of Final Fantasy Marvel's Spider-Man - (Taking my time with it because I only play it when my bro can watch.) Digimon All-Star Rumble - (Playing slowly because it's a terrible game with a terrible grind.) #1 - 20 #21 - 40 #41 - 60 #61 - 80 #81 - 100 100%
  3. I know it's on your profile, but Downwell is one of the harder and more satisfying games that I've beaten recently. It's one of those games that's easy to learn, but difficult to get really good at.
  4. This makes me sad... I wasn't a big fan of Telltale, but I have a really close friend who loves these games. There aren't a whole lot of games that she can play by herself because she's disabled, so she was really excited when I introduced her to these. I'm bummed about not getting The Wolf Among Us 2, but I'm more sad that there's not much for my friend to look forward to playing now.
  5. As much as this was the state's fault for making incredibly stupid decisions with what they funded, a lot of this does still lay on Schilling. He was a very poor chairman because he had no experience in the industry and didn't allocate the funds properly. Employees who worked under him said that he regularly lied to them about the financial state that the company was in, and that they had no idea the company was in trouble until they stopped being paid and ended up saddled with 2 mortgages. And beyond that, he spent way more than than what funding they were given by RI. The whole project was way too big for what they were being given, and he had no idea what he was doing. So yeah it's the state's fault because they never should have given him this in the first place, but his complete mismanagement of what he was given was also a huge part of the problem.
  6. "The idea was to entice 38 Studios to Rhode Island with a loan guarantee as part of a new state initiative created to help bring new jobs to Rhode Island. The deal would have the state signing on as a guarantor on a $75 million loan. In exchange, 38 Studios would relocate to Rhode Island and over the course of three years create 450 new jobs." There's a pretty good article about the whole thing here.
  7. Oh yeah, that game created by a Boston Red Socks player that ended up costing the state of Rhode Island millions of dollars when it failed to sell well enough. For anyone who didn't know, a baseball player got a loan from the state of Rhode Island to make this game. So it was created with taxpayer money that the company couldn't pay back when it failed. So Rhode Island actually owned the IP and all of the studio assets for years. Definitely one of the weirder stories in video game history.
  8. Put me down for reckless tamer, I have both Cyber Sleuth plats and Next Order. Debating going after All Star Rumble. I have it but that game is awful and the platinum is tedious as hell. Is it really worth it to say I have every digimon platinum?
  9. inb4 someone brings up the only functional nintendo playstation prototype.
  10. I actually remember seeing videos about this game last year because I'm a huge fan of The Thing and constantly look for stuff inspired by it. I can't say no to a free horror game, so I'll definitely check it out when it goes up on Steam. I didn't realize this was done by a single college student, that's pretty cool. Were you interested in feedback and constructive criticism from players? I'd love to talk to you about the game after I finish it.
  11. Do you think that gay and transgender people just did not exist until right now and this is some sort of modern idea that's being filtered onto everything? Because history is filled with gay and trans people from all over the world and from very different kinds of societies, some which were far more open than I think you realize. Medieval people absolutely were gay. King James was openly gay and used passages from the bible to justify his sexuality to the church. The Greeks and the Romans very open about homosexuality and it was constantly displayed in their art and writing. The Indian people had a class called the Hijra who were made up of transgender, intersex, or gender nonconforming people. The Jewish people recognized six different genders including special ones for trans and intersex people. The Native Americans celebrated same-sex marriage and a gender called Two-Spirit, which is still recognized and used by native people today. Game devs using these concepts in their games, whether they're historical, modern, or futuristic, is not bullshit and it's certainly not all they have in their work. I've never once played a game that held sexuality or gender as it's main focus, it's always a short side piece that deals with romance options that hardly even effect the plot (Like Mass Effect). Hell, there's literally only two video games with intersex characters in them, so it's not like the market is drowning in LGBTQIA focused games. Gay people are going to exist, apocalypse or not. And you know what, if they do it right this adds some solid conflict and tension to the story. People wanting Ellie to possibly pass on her immunity genes vs her own goals to be with the girl she loves and support her community in other ways. The first game had her nearly die for the possibility of a cure, and the ending is entirely about how she didn't owe them that. She doesn't owe them children for the possibility of a future cure either. Living for yourself and your own goals is not offensive.
  12. And the idea that someone owes the world kids and should be forced to have children purely because other people want them to is almost offensive to me.
  13. Yeah, I'm well aware. I don't want a direct sequel. I want something with the same style of story, gameplay, and tone as the original. They can't use the name or the characters, but they can make a horror rpg along similar lines. Will it happen? Probably never, but I can ask.
  14. I love Gex a lot, but honestly, I think Gex was a very 90's concept that wouldn't work well if you brought him back. The whole idea behind him was having Dana Gould write and voice him with snarky tv pop culture jokes. The series atmosphere was completely built around that concept and I'm not sure what the best way to bring him into modern games would be. So much of that joke material is incredibly dated and doing a faithful remake like Crash and Spyro would not go over well with the new young audience. You could either go full on 90's nostalgia in the way a lot of 80's themed media does right now, or you could just have "modern" Gex where he just adapts to current stand up comedy humor with more pop culture jokes. I can see why Square's attempt at bringing him back didn't produce anything. No matter what they choose to do, you're going to have people unhappy with the way they take him going forward. 3D platformers just have not been popular the past few gens outside of Mario and the very recent Playstation remakes. Crash and Spyro are far more timeless characters and they were just more popular in general. Gex really doesn't have the pull that the other mascots have in the first place, so it's a much harder sell.
