  1. As of 5/18/21, I cannot repeat the same weekly mission and get credit more than once. I completed the mission from last week numerous times and it only counted once. Same thing for the mission this week, just completed it for the second time and it didn't count.
  2. Thanks for the responses all. I will try to hit up the Sony HK PSN store for a refund, because apparently you need a degree in the history of Hong Kong to buy some DLC from the store! Not sure if it's even worth the headache for $10. Alienation is a fantastic though so I'm not too upset about dropping some extra money on a Housemarque game.
  3. What I don't understand is why there are 2 versions of the game listed in the HK store to begin with. There's only 1 trophy list, and the only difference in the game I see is the usual swapped "X" and "O" buttons, and some language selection options. If both versions of the game are locked to the HK region, then the Season Pass I purchased by mistake should still work with the HK physical copy of the game. The theme and the music soundtrack downloaded no problem, it's just the in-game DLC content that won't show up. On the main screen in the lower left corner the items are all shaded out. I can see what's it's supposed to look like with the NA PSN version with NA Season Pass, the items become fully visible and you get a new option to start characters at level 15, armor shade options, the new weapons, etc. The only other thing I can think of is physical vs digital. Are there any other instances where digital DLC from the PSN store is only compatible with a digital version of the game and not a physical copy?
  4. Bought a physical copy of the "English/Chinese" version of Alienation years ago and it was stuck in my backlog. Yesterday I finally got around to playing, realized the Season Pass DLC is needed for 100% and level boosting. I jumped on the Hong Kong PSN store and accidentally bought the wrong Season Pass DLC, because for some reason there are 2 different versions of the game listed. I mistakenly bought the DLC for the version listed as "English (United States)" instead of "English/Chinese". No problem I thought, I'm only a few hours into the game. I'll just rebuy the base game currently on sale for only $5 from the North American PSN store, because that would be cheaper than buying another round of Season Pass at $10. NOPE! SORRY! Not compatible with the Season Pass I just purchased for the "English (United States)" version of the game! Had to spend another $10 for the Season Pass from the NA PSN store. Long story short, the Hong Kong PSN store is a confusing mess. It has 2 versions of Alienation listed, one of which reads like it is the "United States" version of the game, but apparently not the same version of the game you buy from the NA PSN store. Or maybe DLC purchased from another region is never compatible, despite the fact that the product description is written as such?
  5. Confirmed fixed. What a delight, months for a simple patch, then reinstalling 100+ GB worth of content to get 2 bronze trophies! Thanks Ubi-CASH!!
  6. The Bunker was fantastic, and Late Shift was decent, but The Complex is boring and pointless. Just over 3 hours to get the Platinum, but it felt like 10. An empty, vapid experience where I had to fight to stay awake the whole time. This game is what happens when your entire storyline is built around the main character being attractive. You know, because nano-technology scientists often look like supermodels! Let's make sure to plaster Dr. Amy's face nice and big on the cover $$$. Funny how this game about a scary contagious condition is released in March of 2020. But hey, Dr. Amy sure his hot!
  7. This Plat is very easy, but the overall game design is terrible. Trying to create artificial "difficulty" by randomizing the levels after each completion or death is cheap and lazy. Not allowing new players to gradually learn the mechanics, moves, traps, etc. of a 2D platformer shows how little your game actually has to offer.
  8. Finally got my first POWGI games today on sale from another region. Crossovers is a charming little word puzzle game built entirely around "dad jokes" and puns that are genuinely clever and funny. They reminded me of Ellie's joke book from The Last of Us, part 1. Remember those good old days, in the before times, from the long long ago? Anyway, this game is fantastic and can be Platinumed in a few hours, or about an hour using a guide the whole way. A few of the clues made absolutely no sense to me, or I just didn't get the joke, so had to cheat on a few. Will definitely stack this one up whenever more regions go on sale. Looking forward to playing more POWGI games.
  9. Thanks! Some of the clues either made no sense, or I didn't get the joke, so your guide came in handy.
  10. Just got the Platinum with no problems, was worried after reading this post. This game was great fun, but the overall performance was pretty bad on a stock PS4 (not sure if PS4 Pro is any better). The frame-rate drops at many points during combat were terrible. My game also crashed numerous times, like about once every couple hours. Luckily my save file stayed intact.
  11. Just got the Platinum with no problems, was worried about this trophy. I did not hit any of the switches on the huge gates to open them, but did make the icons appear on the map. Fairly certain I smashed every possible tunnel and cave entrance gate that had a "?" symbol and icon. Some of them have a musical cue when you go through, so I'm guessing maybe those are what count for 100%? Anyway, it was nice to get lucky for once and not run into every possible trophy-related bug.
  12. Just made this my 200th Platinum! Decent brick breaker game with a fun presentation and trophy list. The 4 paddle controls using both thumbsticks have a pretty steep learning curve, and the RNG on the power ups can be brutal, but that's pretty typical for games like this. It was a fairly easy Plat that I did in a couple sittings, maybe 8+ hours or so total. As Brian of PS5Trophies demonstrated in his YT stream, you can definitely get this Plat in one session of 5-6 hours if you have some skills. For me the last couple hours getting A-rank collectibles on the hardest levels came down to getting lucky with better power ups.
  13. Update: Finished all the Atlantis DLC including all trophies, then started a NG+ against my better judgement. Made sure to not to go anywhere near the gold "?" marker when doing the first visit to the island for the spear upgrade (I'm guessing that's what corrupted my game file for eternity in the first playthrough). Took about 10 hours to play through the main story all the way to the end of Sequence 4, hoping the 2 quests would finally appear, but nothing. Immediately upon completely Sequence 4, every other "Lost Tales of Greece" marker instantly appears on the map and in my quest log. No Steropes or Arges though, those two simply don't exist in my game. Checked the board on my ship and the boards on land near the islands, nothing. Tried traveling to the gold "?" location on each island, but they simply turn to the blue marker enabling fast travel like the last playthrough. No bosses are there, and no quest markers or log for the two quests have ever existed in my game. That's it, I'm done with this trash game. Uninstalling until maybe there is a patch someday when Ubi-CASH decides to give a damn about their customers. I checked the Ubi-CASH site forum, and it is filled with numerous posts from people having this same issue. No help from Ubi-CASH.
