  1. Would you like some cheese with that whine?
  2. Considering how fun the game looks, this list is pretty disappointing. Oh well, I don't buy games for the trophies like I used to and can't wait for the PS5 version. I know I could just get the upgrade but by the time I get around to playing it, the PS5 version will be out anyways. I also heard that the game saves for this particular game do not carry over so no sense having to restart, especially with that grind trophy.
  3. Kids are not the target audience for Crash lol. This game targets nostalgic adults who grew up playing the notoriously difficult (for the time) games when they first came out, who should by now have developed the skills to play through the majority of this game or at least have the focus and determination to keep playing after the frustration sets in. Just because a game isn't gory does not automatically make it a kids game. Also Ratalaika single handedly destroyed any value platinum trophies ever had and wrecked trophy hunting for everyone. What is the point of having a lot of piss easy crap platinums everyone can get in ten minutes of playing? That being said, there does not need to be two extremes in terms of difficulty, which is what, imo, makes AAA games so good. They are easy enough that the mass audience that they appeal too can get their platinums, while being long or just difficult enough that casual players won't necessarily achieve them and then the next game comes out that takes their attention away. This is not a AAA targeting mass audiences, and they certainly don't think of children as their main consumer. If you don't like it, don't buy it. That's the advantage of capitalism; you can make your own decisions.
  4. It should pop when you are back in the quinjet and you can choose your next mission.
  5. Not matchmaking with anyone and just playing with AI. Technically still online I know.
  6. You probably have. I've read that a lot of people are having trouble with it unlocking. In my experience, I didn't play much online, and all of my trophies popped when they were supposed to. I kept a tally of the hives I did and it popped right when I hit 50. All I can say is keep at it and hopefully it unlocks for you soon.
  7. Good job! I'm so excited for this. The trophy icons look great. Sad I'll probably never get that beautiful platinum image for myself. Oh well, can't get them all.
  8. God I loved the trilogy and the demo for this one. Never platinumed the other games and I sure as heck probably won't be skilled enough to go for this one. I will at least attempt some time trials so that I'm not giving up before I even give myself the chance to try, but I am going into this with the mindset of 'this will never happen in a million years'.
  9. You can. I used the very first one. Can't remember what it's called. "Let the games begin" or something like that. It only takes about 15 minutes a run. I finished all mine in three days and wasn't that bad. I also really love the game though so if you get bored of it maybe just break it down to do it over a longer period of time.
  10. I actually can't remember dealing with many games that glitched on me. I've been pretty lucky. The only one I can think of that gave other people trouble was the collectible trophies in Lego Harry Potter. Platinumed both games three times across multiple accounts and never ran into any issues having to restart. I've heard a lot of people had to with like 99% completion due to missing gold bricks or whatever.
  11. I got Tentative Peace last night after doing two more elite villain sectors. I lost count of how many I did before the patch, but it feels like it was around the 15 needed. I also have not had any issues with trophies popping when they should. I got the level 25 trophy at 25. I got the 50 intelligence files at 50. I've also played 95% of the time solo and only did a few multiplayer missions, so idk if that affects the trophy counts. Just working on the 250 hero levels and 50 hives. I still have a ways to go.
  12. I managed to get the last disc version available at the time from bestbuy. I went back after I had already ordered and saw that I should've gotten a charging station but eh I'll get one later. I think the plan is to get Demon Souls to play with my bf so we are probably going to wait to see how the console activation works if it's the same as PS4 so only one of us needs to buy the game digitally.
  13. GaaS games are literally designed to be released unfinished lol. That is the point of adding more content. No one remembers when Destiny first came out? I love the game. Been playing everyday since launch and having a great time. Just a few days until I get power level 150. No technical issues here on my old model PS4 either. All the hate is completely overblown imho.
  14. 0 - A Summer with the Shiba Inu 1 - Concept Destruction 5 - What Remains of Edith Finch 6 - Ratchet and Clank 7 - Crossovers by POWGI (NA) 8 - Bubsy Paws on Fire 9- Spongebob Battle for Bikini Bottom This was an ok game. Better than I was expecting, though I wasn't expecting much. Glad I got it for cheap anyway. This will be my last game. I had some things this week come up that I had to budget for so I wasn't able or willing to justify buying more games just for this challenge. A 7/10 isn't too bad considering I pretty much gave up gaming for over a month because I never felt like playing anything.
  15. I have been playing this game non-stop for the past week. Unfortunately there's no in-game timer so I don't know how much time I've put in already, but I also wasted a lot of resources on crap I didn't need and accidentally upgrading gear when I was trying to dismantle it. It is tedious as heck getting upgrade modules, and polychodrones or whatever they are called (I've been calling them Pocahontas because I can't ever remember). That is the main grind other than repeating missions. Difficulty is like a 4/5 because even on the highest difficulty I am kicking butt, but the time needed is a huge investment. I also haven't had any trophies like the intelligence one glitch on me so far, knock on wood. Edit: I'm playing this is on a new profile which is why you won't see it in my list.
  16. I love the Avengers game. Unpopular opinion it seems but I truly think this game has a lot of potential and I am thoroughly enjoying it.

      On the flip side of those other replies, unfortunately for the longevity of a mostly online game popular opinion does end up mattering.  Hopefully there's enough support for the game to keep it going, and they can continue to fix any issues people have with it.  It looks pretty cool.

      I can't just fall in love with potential, a rule I have for both people and games. More power to you if you're enjoying it but it has really gotten to the point where these GaaS games have more than enough of a blueprint to actually launch well instead of the whole "it'll be better in 3/6/12 months" shtick that we get time and again. It's fun in parts and I like the story but there's just so much wrong with it, so much bullshit holding it down that they really, really should have known better.

      This is the first GaaS game I've played (other than a tiny little bit of Destiny 2) and I'm not fully in love with the idea, but I do like how it encourages you to come back to the game, whether that's good or bad. Of course with a username like yours @Stan Lee, I know you'd want perfection from this game XD. And I think that the "it'll get better in 3/6/12 months" thing applies to many games that aren't GaaS with all the broken crap we are being fed these days that need patches to be able to play properly lol. 

  17. I've been wanting to play this since I first saw it listed somewhere like a couple years ago I think. That is very disappointing to hear that it's got negative reviews so far, though honestly I'm not really surprised. The gameplay looks like there's something not quite right about it, but I'm not sure what. Cute monkey, but that's about it. And it looks more like a red panda to me lol.
  18. I do the same thing. I'm trying to get out of that mindset. I'm playing some older games and my Switch. I started a fresh profile in preparation for the PS5. Not going to waste time or money on more games unless I actually want to play them. Not because I'm hunting platinum trophies. I wasn't one to buy those little cheapy games at least. I've been playing the crap out of the Avengers game. I feel like I'm having fun again, mostly because I know the platinum is such a long winded process that I may never get it, so it's setting a good precedent for the games I eventually want to have on there. I want my platinums to mean something to me again, not just a boring slog so I never have to play it again. If I get a platinum, I want to look back and be like, yeah, that game deserved all the time I put into it. I still have my old profile. That's going to be my catch all. My new profile is where my obsessiveness of actually playing my new games can chill.
  19. I loved the beta. I am so excited to start playing this either tonight or tomorrow for sure. I get how people would say the gameplay is boring, but I was having such a good time Hulk-smashing everything. I also never had any frame rate issues, or any sort of issues other than an overly shakey camera which I just chalked up to just being over the top superhero action. None of the controversy this game is involved in bothers me, I am just happy to finally be able to play it.
  20. I got it but only played about an hour. I really like it. The story seems pretty good, and I love the monster designs. I picked the wolf for my starter, as I spoiled myself looking at their evolutions and thought he was the coolest. Looking forward to playing some more but I haven't been in a playing games type mood lately.
  21. My old Samsung I bought for myself as a grad gift back in 2011 killed itself a couple months ago and so I bought a cheap piece of junk from Walmart for the time being. I am also in the market for grabbing a new tv in time for the PS5. I don't know anything about TVs. All I know is I want one that actually turns on when I push the button on the remote from less than two feet away!!! Ugh so annoying. If anyone can recommend a good tv that isn't crazy expensive that would be appreciated!!
  22. I think the most I spent digitally at one time was $180 back when I was depressed and was throwing money at anything that I thought would help make me even a little happier for any amount of time. The most I spent on one game was $220 for the Persona 5 Royal collector's edition and I still haven't made it past the second palace lol.
  23. 0 - A Summer with the Shiba Inu 1 - Concept Destruction 5 - What Remains of Edith Finch 6 - Ratchet and Clank 7 - Crossovers by POWGI (NA) 9- Spongebob Battle for Bikini Bottom So I got a couple cheap easy games in the sale, one of which being my #7. The other one is Bubsy Paws on Fire which as embarassing as it is, looks kinda fun to me. I believe that one is a #2 iirc. May pick up the remaining numbers after my next paycheck and then I can get a fully coloured unicorn!! There's no way I can complete P5R because I don't feel like playing big games right now, and I might save it for my ps4's last hurrah before the new console comes out.
  24. From what I gathered on Reddit forums, it really could go either way depending on the developers. I feel like The Avengers being a games as a service type game it's more likely that they would share a list imo, but they might just make it so the trophies autopop on a new list which I really don't want. Hope we get some sort of clarification when the game comes out but I doubt we will get something until the PS5 version comes out.
  25. I also worked at a game store (EB Games) previously. I concur with everything you said here. And cue the people yelling at poor minimum wage folk for not being able to pull stock out of their bums. That's what a pre-order is for! It's literally *just* to make sure you get what you want when it's ready. Not sure why people think it's some big scam. Except when the idiots at the Walmart I worked at oversold their preorders for the WiiU. Then I can see why people would think that way.
