  1. Sure. It nicely shaves off the edge of all the tryharding, especially online.
  2. Down We Go (III) - Clear Floor 12 of the Spiral Abyss I Really don't like playing the Abyss, but managed to nab it in the final day of this "easy" rotation. Ayaka helped a lot setting up a freeze team, even severely undergeared. I had Ayaka/Xingqiu/Venti/Diona on side A and a copium team of Zhongli/Bennet/Xiangling/Fischl on side B. That's the last trophy until next region (maybe). Really hope there's not going to be something like level 16 abyss, don't really like to tryhard so much in Genshin Impact. I'll probably keep powering up my favorites now, but I really don't care so much about getting 36 stars (got 26 and thankfully you don't need 6 stars on floor 12 in case anyone is wondering)
  3. I could preorder or buy early if I'm: -actually hyped to the point I'm willing to drop everything just to play the game -game has limited edition goods I'm interested in -it's a game I want to support (usually a niche game, multibillion companies can make it without my contribution) This doesn't happen all that often these days and there were a few franchises I began to feel like I was buying out of obligation when the games just kept getting worse. I might still buy them from sale and whatnot, but I'm not a charity.
  4. At least the Switch version is a bit tougher than Double Peace even just getting true ends. Everything is faster in the game with stricter choice requirements. I think it was compatible with move controller on ps3, but dunno if it would be easier or harder. edit: also while the plat might be appealing, I think this GalGun 1 was the weakest game of the three. I'd heavily recommend Double Peace on ps4 (switch has weird aim sensitivity issues with the games) over it any day of the week
  5. Maybe it'll be Portable Ops for the PSP classic library.
  6. An idle thought here, but what if Sony made it so that the platinum would be the first trophy to pop intead of the last? I mean it wouldn't affect completion rates (since plat doesn't count towards completion), the plat hunters would have their work cut down and the game devs would have easier time to make lists. At this point I really can't see any negatives. Just win-win-win situation.

      Pop the platinum when someone buys a game, then take it away again as soon as they earn another trophy. All the plat addicted players would not even have to bother playing the game.

      What's the fun of hunting trophies if they're just giving them to you? We already have 5 minute platinums and they don't have the best reputation.

  7. Honestly not hyped for either the PS5 or Xbox, but I could see a few uses for one. I don't want to play games like Assassin's Creed Valhalla on my base ps4 anymore and maybe I could play something like Phantasy Star on it? There's less difference between Sony and MS this gen than ever before.
  8. I've grinded outfits in idolmaster plat star for a couple years on/off now. Still don't have it. I'd estimate it could take anywhere between 250-500 hours without DLC. All that time just playing a song and hoping for a drop over and over again with zero variation. Dunno if DLC helps with the drop rates, tho
  9. For me I get FOMO from things that might actually become unavailable, which is the opposite of mainstream games. I could get it from sales anytime for decades to come.
  10. One of the very few PS3 games I was still planning to get. Sealed copy too. Still need to buy One For All and I'm pretty good with the main series at least. Probably should think about buying a spare PS3 too...
  11. It's not like you have to create a new save, but if you for example miss one of the weapons that you have to steal, you'll have to play the whole chapter again and that could be a couple of hours of extra work. I was pretty annoyed by this when I was under the impression there wouldn't be highly missable items like that. In traditional JRPG-guides, having to beat the game to either unlock chapter select of ng+ for another chance at an item still counts as missable, but trophy guides are their own thing.
  12. Found a cheap copy and I've always been interested in the Koei strategy games. Kind of wanted to buy Taishi too when it's still cheap, but I guess I'll see if I can get anything done in this one first.
  13. The silver lining is that it's not a mainline game with this kind of low-budget effort and disrespect to the main series. Disappointing, but at least I won't be baited into playing it like with Star Ocean 5. Much easier to skip as a spin-off. Also Elysium? Is this supposed to be some kind of counter to God of War going norse, so you turn vp into hellenic route or something? Just nopes all around
  14. Was thinking getting the switch version, but I feel bad still not having finished Lulua on it. Might not be day 1, but there aren't many if any game releases I'm interested this year so likely I'll get sometime during spring.
  15. Most of my collection is physical and I've only ever claimed 3 PS+ games. I'm not going so say how much exactly since I don't want any contacts regarding the matter, but it wouldn't be these absurd prices some people seem to place on their accounts. I do have one delisted game that seems to go for high prices these days, but still the value of the digital copy is not much. 90% of the value is definitely in my physical collection.
  16. Every so often I find myself playing games I'm not enjoying, or think it's decent, but not really pulling me in/ not my cup of tea. It's at times like this that I remind myself of these words of wisdom: Life's too short for games I don't like, so honestly I'm doing myself a favor by just dropping a game that caused burnouts and re-evaluate what I want out of gaming in the present day. It's easy to get stuck to old habits and then wake up years later to wonder why this isn't working anymore.
  17. The Empires games have a kingdom/army management aspect to them. Dunno how it playes in 9, tho
  18. Nah. The only think I've done is block serial-griefers or lagswitchers. I don't play MP that often anyway. There was once a message group with some nutjob that went so far and above ToS that it was too funny to risk reporting. These were all from competitive games, which I know brings the worst in people (even I resorted to DCing in a series of bad games and got temp-banned). Ultimately I think that some heat is to be expected if you're playing for high ranks, so it's petty going around reporting every little thing, but also at the end of the day it's just a game so taking anger out on it just because you're having matches not going your way is not very adult-like. No one's gonna care about your K/D anyway
  19. There's a reason Cross is more of a cult game than one of the greats and that's not because it didn't get a PAL release. The Direct reveals were mostly a huge remaster and "remake" fest and frankly speaking if I wanted to play those games I had already done so.
  20. Tactics was already remastered for PSP ages ago.
  21. I ultimately ended up getting it with the bow method. Had double execution and the 5 hit upgrade. Find any berserker with another orc nearby, use flurry on the other orc to get 5 combo, then just fire a fire arrow on the berserkers leg (so he doesn't die by accident) and immediately execute afterwards. I read on a steam forum, that some sword runes might also affect getting it, so I removed all my epic ones (and surely enough I got it right after), but I think you also just have to be lightning fast with the execution for it to count.
  22. 82nd :platinum:Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

     

    The PS3 version that is. It was one of those games with 1 trophy earned and sitting at E-rank for years. One would think it's a great feeling finishing those kind of blemishes on a profile, but honestly I only feel this was a complete waste of my time and probably ruined an otherwise decent game that would be better enjoyed on PC (I think the PS4 version has unobtainables? so I guess that's the silver lining playing this bad port). The PS3 is going back to the closet, hopefully next time I'll play something less miserable with it.

      Congratulations!

       

      Shadow of Mordor (PS4) is perfectly obtainable. They patched it out late 2020, so players are now able to obtain the "online" trophies although the servers have been shut down. More info here. :)

  23. Eventually I'd like to quit, or maybe just earn one plat year or so. Lately I've been mostly raising my completion-% and while that has been going smoothly, it's not really giving me the satisfaction it should. It's just too easy to add 50 unearned trophies to the list compared to earning equal or greater amount from the backlog. That's not a battle that can be won by any normal effort. Sometimes I tell myself I'm just going to 100% this game, because I don't have anything else to do anyway, but at least a part of that is the game/trophy list taking away my energy to begin more fulfilling game journeys. For now, I'm just having low trophy goals and that should give me enough time for other games, but still wasting a couple weeks on some buggy PS3-game isn't a time well spent and that is a problem in the long run. I shouldn't even be wasting a day doing that.
  24. I swear my over a decade old DS3's hold thrice the charge of my DS4's. I really don't want to buy a third DS4 just to get through the remaining lifespan of the PS4.

      Had my DS3 since 2013, retains a charge like day one. One stick is getting clicky but that's about it. My secondary controller has a charge that lasts for some five minutes without being connected, but it was like that when I bought it secondhand.

       

      Comparatively, owned four DS4s since 2014 for various reasons. Two are dead and buried; all of them have had some kind of dead zone issue at some point, some reparable, some not.

       

      I'll give that much to the Worst PlayStation Home Console Ever™, they knew how to make a controller that lasts.

      I swear they make the controllers crappier to make people buy more. It’s basically a tax at this point.

      my ds3s are in the garbage. i have 4 DS4s and i only use my ps4 as a bluray player a bedroom. i have 5 Dualsense controllers (2 white, 1 black, 1 "red", 1 unopened black) and they all hold a long enough charge. 7+hrs.

       

      Though ive found with having my phone charging when im at home and gaming, i can just unplug my phone and plug into my dualsense. even though i have multiple charging docks, its just convenient. controller wont ever die when i game

  25. I think Ginga Force and Natsuki Chronicles are both at sale as the Seventia Collection on (EU) PSN right now. I don't think the game is ezpz though, despite what the +10% plat rarity suggests (I think you can unlock some kind of good weapon by grinding gametime, but there are still a few challenges I'm not sure I can do). However the game is imo a bit higher quality than the standard shmup, so I can see why it might not be on sale for less than 5€ in a while.
