  1. why would any1 stop using any system? im still playing snes and dreamcast games alongside ps4 and 2ds games...whatever i feel like
  2. This port was supposed to be a timed/preorder exclusive (?), but I have just purchased the Deluxe edition of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown (on sale right now on the EU PS Store) and I can confirm that AC5 (in my case, ACE COMBAT™ SQUADRON LEADER) is included in the bundle. The game is now in my library and I have downloaded it to my PS4. I am very happy about this because I missed the chance to get this back around the release period. It's one of, if not my favorite AC game. If anyone is still looking to get this, get the Deluxe edition of AC7. The reason I found this worthy of posting is because, again, this was supposed to be a limited offer, and also, the product page for 'ACE COMBAT™ 7: SKIES UNKNOWN Deluxe Edition' does not mention AC5 being included in the bundle at all. But there it is🙂
  3. this is hands down one of the hardest games ive played, along with Castlevania yesterday (crap controls) Justice is total BS with insane hitboxes and spammy no startup specials that shave of half your HP, i dont think ive ever beaten it legit, the only reason i was able to 100% this at all is bc of lucky instakills and spamming OPTIONS and getting TIME'S UPs! i dont think ive ever been able to execute a special attack even once in the game Sol and Justice are both hardest enemies in the game thankfully the last two stages were easy with Baldhead, 1 try win, nice way to end this game 5hrs and 3/10 difficulty is also kinda misleading, it's definitely more like 12hrs and 8.5/10 imo. i must've spent like 2hrs w/ Chipp and another 2hrs with Zato just against Justice alone i really want to like some of these older games but they're just so badly designed
  4. i wrote a little guide on how to clear this legit...just kinda forgot where i posted took me 4hrs, i was a noob, and i suck at games in general and i have almost no rhythm game experience. so no you dont need rhythm game experience to clear this. i had more trouble with the nero brothers minigame to be honest EDIT: found it...i really aplogise for my wall of text though. i really suck at concise writing and i just wrote my train of though at the time really, most ppl probably wont read it but i hope it helps at least 1 person maybe or gives them good ideas didnt use a script for this jump rope thing bc it's a skill based trophy and i dont cheat those. also it's just not as hard as ppl make it out to be. if i recall correctly the only trouble was getting the first 300 jumps or was it 400? and then after that you will pretty much overshoot 1000 easily. the patterns are always the same so all you need is memorisation and just keep trying. that very fact is why use of scripts is even possible to begin with. if the tempo changes were random then absolutely this would be a hard minigame. but no. but i will admit to using my Hori Pad FPS Plus's turbo feature to automate X presses and left it on overnight to get the 10k kills so my plat isnt exactly clean either...i just hate unnecessary grinding like that and the combat in this title sucks, but i still feel kinda bad about it. using turbo is cheating, is it not? i only use it during these mindless mash 1 button for ten hour grinds though and not for actual gameplay. the controller is an Officially Licensed by Sony product though so i wonder if use of this feature is actually cheating or not, im confused
  5. crap at fighting games so im not surprised im experiencing difficulty, but playing through Normal Mode w/ Chipp was a nightmare from Round 1...vs Sol was easily the worst, then i realised the best way to play this game for me is defensively...set the timer to 30 secs, hold Back on the D-Pad and abuse OPTIONS button LOL and only press Circle when the chance presents itself Chipp vs Justice i only won bc i was lucky enough to land a instakill!! So yes it is possible to land instakill moves on every single opponent in this game they're also quite easy to initiate but getting the combo during the red flash down is insanely tricky for me since even after having spent a 100 hrs total on fighting games i have no idea how to reliably execute a QC...but i hope this bit of info helps noobs like me vs Justice...especially with fricking Chipp!! He has the coolest theme imo but man i had no idea he was so squishy and dealt such low dmg until i actually tried playing him...he is very fast though great guide btw!! just not for me i guess, playing defensively instead of aggressively is actually a great tactic though for those struggling like me so try it! except for Potemkin, he can smash anything in a few secs flat
  6. WOW 25mins later i already have the Maestro trophy, that was really not the nightmare i expected it to be, getting Fantastic ratings really was easy might as well go ahead and get the mini-game over with right now w/ Ventus and Aqua while im still in the groove!
  7. hi so im having some trouble with this particular minigame...i cannot for the life of me play this properly (and i've encountered this before in other games) bc the music/rhythm and the on-screen green circle cues are totally off sync for me for whatever reason, im talking like half a second or something which is obviously very significant. so this being a rhythm game i cant even play it properly to begin with, my button presses are just totally not in line with the music bc of this issue im guessing it's because of some input lag/screen issue of whatever. but i cant seem to find much info on this, no one else seems to be having this issue at all. is there something i can do to fix this. im not a very tech savvy guy at all. maybe it's to do with the fact im playing the ps3 version on a 1080p screen and i recall this might cause such issues in some games. ive done the FF9 jump rope minigame just fine but it's a ps4 remaster made for full HD tvs so im guessing bc of that there were no sync issues but this mini-game for me right now is totally unplayable and no i dont want to turn off the music and rely solely on visual cues, that's just not how you play rhythm games, and it doesn't fix the issue at hand
  8. well, it's not a big deal, but unfortunately it looks like i wont be able to plat this game bc the ice cream beat minigame is unplayable for me for whatever reason. ive tried everything, ive even resorted to just turning off the sound and playing it that way but even then there's timing issues due to input lag that i find a lot in ps3 games. it's very frustrating. i could try to compensate for that but i just cant be arsed right now to go out of my way for some command style. i like KH minigames and i want to like this minigame but it is what it is im not sure why it seems like im the only one on the planet having this issue. well that's not entirely true, i did do some research and it turns out one other person had the same problem as i did and they managed to fix it by switching from their TV screen to their monitor. well unfortunately i cannot do this since ive tried hooking up my ps3 console to two different computer monitors and it wont display the signal. im guessing they were playing the ps4 version of the game, as it is possible to hook my ps4 up to my computer monitors. i guess ill try to get the plat when i replay this game on the ps4 sometime down the line UPDATE: it turns out i still have my old 720p TV screen, dusted that thing off, hooked up my ps3 to that and that fixed the issue LOL, now the music/claps/green circles all actually match now, so no more excuses now
  9. awesome thanks for that, i had already bought the game on sale for €9,99 but i had to wait for that sale to materialise in the 1st place bc i still couldnt believe they were seriously charging us 20 euros (2x more than other regions) for a simple port of a psx fighting game?? i had to constantly complain on the publisher's facebook page to get them to release this port bc EU didnt even get this on release day, i think it was a whole week or two later. they never responded to me either. really reluctant to spend any money on this publisher tbh
  11. before demon's souls i felt like i was mainly a casual (well i still am) playing the average jrpgs, the final fantassies, the kingdom hearts, the star oceans, the pokemons. other games, then i just randomly bought this game during a PS Store sale, i wasnt really following the gaming trends so i might have heard about the souls games but didnt know what they were about. well it blew me away when i started it up and i was running around in boletaria getting my arse kicked. i notice a lot of ppl quit games, souls games in particular, when they cant get past the first or second boss or something. and then call it a bad game when they really just sucked at it luckily i dont have that so despite me being a crap gamer i played the whole thing through (let's be honest, it's not a shmup game or ninja gaiden or anything like that) and cant describe how much i loved it. i still think about this game almost every day and very fondly so, it is one of the top 5 games i have ever played. and it really did, not ruin, but certainly made me think most of the games i played before DeS that i thought were fantastic became kinda mediocre in comparison, bc you start noticing especially with japanese rpg games in general, how many of them are still kinda stuck in (sometimes outdated) 90s game design and feel kinda formulaic despite still being really fun though. ironically, demon's souls, despite often being referred to as being a old-school retro hardcore experience, was totally revolutionary to me the intro the 'tutorial' the atmosphere and constant dread the weapon variety and item descriptions the lore and item/enemy placement/attention to detail the online functionality the fool's idol, the old monk, the final 'boss', and really just the boss fights in general most importantly, the level design and exploration just wow, this was totally groundbreaking for me and consider the fact that the game was failing before miyazaki stepped in, got a lukewarm reception during TGS despite the killer trailer, sony japan didnt have much faith in it and didnt bother publishing it overseas, and the FS guys themselves didnt see the game being successful. yet you play it and you can see the passion and love and soul that they put into the game. when ppl bring up this game, i see a lot of them complaining about the tendency system and the pure bladestone droprate and im really not sure what the problem is with any of those...i guess i was just lucky dropping PBS in like an hour of farming? and the tendency you can argue is hard to manage but it is what it is, i dont dislike it, i find it an interesting system and just adds to the games's depth and esotery in a reasonable way. hey at least it's not the last remnant, the official japanese strategy guide of which has 1000 pages... they're not going the remove the tendency system bc that's an important part of the game design. it's part of what makes demon's souls, demon's souls. you take that out, you're just homogenising the game into dark souls. same thing with the valley of defilement and lack of mobility, it's how you're supposed to traverse that world. you can see those changes as QoL changes but i would see them as fundamentally changing the game design as was intended, not a good thing as much as i think it'd be beyond awesome if they included that supposed DLC world, i dont see it happening. the director stated he has no interest in revisiting this game (wtf?) so that is just not a thing that is going to happen. the writing and design would have to be done by FS obviously and not by the company doing the remastering
  12. holy crap 97 on legend is pretty much almost there! keep at it! you say you're not the best lol well your profile says otherwise...i dont wanna put myself down too much because tbf i only have a collective 100-120hrs or experience in all of the fighting game genre (most of it from this game haha) i actually know what i need to do, is focus on really mastering just one or two main characters, that also helps with confidence, my problem is i play fighting games super casually and like to rotate characters a lot, resulting in me never getting good with any character and limiting my potential progress. it's fun that way but that way i just never learn anything. also the newer versions of DOA5 have full fledged tutorials and combo challenges that the vanilla version is sorely lacking so im really gonna put a lot more work into those
  13. for like over a year now, survival master is still the only trophy i need for the plat, as is the case with many others im sure lol still trying from time to time but ii really suck at fighting games in particular, my record is reaching round 76 on just the 5th difficulty (out of 8...) and that took ages to get there i dont really care about platting every single game i play that much anymore but it's more about the challenge, i hate putting down a game just bc i couldnt beat a challenge, plus i really like do like fighting games even though im not good at them, and i really like dead or alive so im having fun which is most important im not gonna practice the survival mode in this version anymore bc i was like what am i doing practicing survival mode in the ps3 version when i can just play the latest version on ps4 with the graphical upgrades and the tons of extra content and costumes and have more fun in that one. so im going to get the ps4 version soon as well as doa6 which ive already bought last week, and just practice survival mode there until i beat them and then hopefully i can transfer those skills over to the ps3 version and beat it there it bothers me how so many people claim FF9 jump rope is impossible when trophies like this exist...jrpg fans (and im one) on average have no idea what 'hard' is... anyway ive been mainly trying with lisa not because she's apparently the easiest to do it with but bc she's one of my fav chars along with ryu, ayane and elliot which i also use a lot, but lisa seems to be the best to do this with for casuals like me, my problem is i just cannot for the life of me get those stupid quarter cirlce/half circle inputs going, in any fighting game so ive come up with my own combos which are actually pretty decent but the problem sometimes a really aggressive opponent will jump in and just wreck me in 2 secs
  14. i deleted my post like 10 mins after lol i was in a bad mood so nvm, i can say that things really start to pick up once you get access to the lv50 paladin merc for which you need a lv45 char in the first place, before then it's a really boring grind, also learning how the game even works takes time and im a slow learner so i apologise for my bitching and thanks for your help, i kinda half dislike this game bc it feels like a mobile game on console and i really hate mobile games but on the other hand basiscape composed the music so that makes it awesome
  15. -
  16. yeah i love the original game way better (the remake anyway) not knocking this one, it's fun but i honestly dont understand the hype, it's nowhere near as creepy and atmospheric as the original
  17. wait what? there's an even faster method of leveling that is offline? i kept reading on and on how leveling online is the fastest way and if you dont rush it now you need to spend like a 100hr extra on the plat? is this some recently devised method or something? where/what is it? i havent been keeping up with these topics so i might have to read a lot more... does that mean the only thing you have to do online is just recruit the trophy guide author's char for some 99-hit combo thing (not even necessary but might as well get it out of the way now) and get a few flags? bc if so then im already done, and i've found leveling online through wars excruciatingly slow even with the paladin powerleveling system, im at 15hrs playtime right now and havent even got a char that's above lv38, so i might just focus on having fun now with the campaign, im probably also playing like a total idiot bc im slow and i dont really understand all the systems and mechanics and i hate having to rush games like this and use guides and stuff EDIT: im an idiot, it seems the OP was recently updated and i guess it's in there, sorry and thanks for the info
  18. i have zero technical knowledge on this topic but im assuming this is one of those games that doesnt have a dedicated server but p2p gameplay based on a matchmaking server so it costs less to maintain and therefore are still up, i'm still online-ing in some ps3 games released like a decade ago
  19. pretty much this
  20. im not too worried about platting this over having fun but yeah i was planning to play this game in the winter lol, so a little surprised at randomly noticing this announcement ive only had a quick glance at the trophy guide and i havent touched this yet so i dunno this supposedly hardcore leveling grind without the online wars i could deal with bc it wont become unobtainable anyway but im worried about this flag thing and how rng it supposedly is without online wars - but then i read elsewhere that you get like 1 flag a day just talking to npcs or something, is that an online thing too? not sure, anyone can confirm? if so then i might want to start this game next week really quickly just for the flags and then set it aside for winter, so i could get 10 flags ingame and then just buy the dlc ones if needed at the end if not then you know, sucks but im already playing like 7 games right now
  21. probably the most interesting and creative list and titles ive ever seen you can tell the person who wrote it up this was just brimming with excitement ...
  22. yeah this game isnt too bad but it's kicking my rear sometimes and i dont feel like im playing it wrong but im always underpowered and i feel like i could do much better i was fighting yuki-onna a few days ago and it took me like an hour to beat her, granted im not a good gamer and ive been too lazy to learn the game's mechanics, i still dont know what ki pulse is good for, ive unlocked maybe two or three skills that i barely ever use, havent used any item other than elixirs and a few rocks, havent even touched ninjutsu and onmyo yet and im just randomly putting my stats wherever, i have no build, havent done anything at the blacksmith other than refashion my ugly armor so i could look like a ninja, didnt even know you could summon others to help you until i read a few posts here but i never do that anyway, just like in souls games this game is really overwhelming with the amount of mechanics and tools and it throws at you, i havent really sat down and done anything with them, i just kinda pick up and play for a couple of hours a few times a week my advice for new players is to not be like me and be too lazy and kinda bumble your way through but sit down early and experiment and try out using items and skills and figure out a build i guess problem is respec-ing is extremely prohibitive so i can never really experiment as much as i want because the books required rise in price so fast
  23. because it's an incredibly dull and boring game, 1st playthrough was mildly enjoyable but still hard and had to somewhat force myself through it the controls are the clunkiest i've experienced in ages and the dumb princess doesnt help either how people speedrun this game in below 2hrs is beyond me (i refuse to play along with video clips and stuff like that) how this game is so highly regarded, i cannot comprehend, and what exactly is so "art"-ful about it? thankfully im not some hardcore trophy hunter so im probably dropping this game, but wow, hats off to people that got this (without using videos, and honestly, even with videos), you deserve mad respect i hope shadow of the colossus is better EDIT: my typing is just as clunky as ico's controls it seems, wow
  24. well i just got the plat after all didnt think i could actually do it but i had a friend help me after skating (2P really helps here and there), she likes the game and said why she did so, and i guess i can see why it's so special to some people i dont like doing it but i had to kind of look some stuff up like a few useful shortcuts and tips that help massively and some mad luck was involved as well i take back my comment about the clunky controls, i mean a ton of games i play have clunky controls so i dunno why i mentioned that, plus i guess clunky controls in games are usually an intended challenge in and of itself in addition, unlike in a lot of games with platforming elements, the platforming and jumping around here is actually pretty forgiving (the game 'locks' ico onto some points here and there) especially on your 2nd run. i spent untold amounts of time on the two big jumps in the waterfall section and on the platforming section at the beginning of the final part in my first run, but i got them all on 1st or 2nd try this time lol thanks for all the positive replies guys it really helped still a super hard game if you count the speedrun part, imo at least
  25. maybe im missing something but what music are you all talking about? i think it had maybe one decent track at the end i guess, it was a few weeks ago that i finished my first run, but other than that's there's not much music that i know of lol (i like the lack of music though because it makes for a certain atmosphere like demon's/dark souls and resident evil and stuff) im one of 5 people on this planet that actually care about video game soundtracks so if im missing somehing brilliant then i must be really be an idiot i'll check out the game's soundtrack later today
