  1. This all happened a bit fast. For me it was a nice reprieve but I guess it's good for some. I do love the old ID display. Ready is dead, long live ready! Damn, I saw this & ended up revisiting those early private guides, then took a look at the draft of the new one & it was factual & boring compared to the other two so I'm going to have to rewrite it a bit & if the language isn't acceptable I'll just dump the whole thing on the subforums. The videos I made for it could easily be played in the background of a high-brow drug party and I reckon the punters would lap it up so there's that at the very least.
  2. I wouldn't thank me too much mate this is my 3rd guide but the first one I intend to publish publicly. The previous ones were only available privately in .pdf format. Sorry if my banter was abrasive in your eyes, although I what I really should be apologising for bumping the thread 3 times now when there's no new info on the topic ;p
  3. ^ I think you might have taken that a bit too seriously there buddy. At the same time there would be no guides if no one played without them, & from personal experience playing something using a guide the whole time feels like I haven't played the game at all. Horrible experience imo, much better to go in with limited or no info!!
  4. Sorry but I've gotta add another 'fuck this trophy list' post. It's really obnoxious to release a compilation of games & not include a platinum imo. I guess with 3 stacks it might work out to a similar amount of points so there's that at least. I'd be interested to know who did the emulation. Expecting save states & an easy life with this but I'd laugh my arse off if the opposite was true. I'm definitely waiting for a sale regardless & in the meantime maybe I'll just set up the Mega Drive since I still own a boxed copy of bloodlines ;p With that said I'm also a little bit sympathetic to the 'at least the games are coming out' way of thinking, better than nothing that's for sure.
  5. I've enjoyed the break personally. I absolutely have better things to do than obsess over trophies & usually I'd be procrastinating & looking into trophies instead of doing said better things but the last month or so has seen extreme productivity in other areas & if I reflect on that it makes me quite happy truth be told. That said I've had a trophy guide written with videos and everything for what feels like ages now & I don't see the point in submitting that during this interim period. Part of me wants the new name so I can submit the guide & complete that project but at the same time I think people who wait for guides to play games are really weak so fuck em they can wait. I have my doubts anyone will care when it's up anyway!!
  6. I've been looking forward to this & still am, but that's a really shit trophy list! Two games, one of which has two loops & no platinum leaves me going WHY!? Anyway looks like there's a 1cc for the first game & beat the second loop for the 2nd. Even if you're allowed to continue for the 2 loop trophy I understand continuing at the last stage will start you at the beginning of it so at least there'll be some effort required. With that said I looked up 1cc videos & they were on 'easy rank' which had very slow bullets & didn't look all that demanding, there's a lot of bullet cancelling involved as well so it's all probably pretty reasonable. IIRC there'll be a ps4 version so at least another stack of this. In the past I've really enjoyed triple stacking Ghost Blade, Caladrius & Rym 9000. I was hoping the Vasara collection would have a platinum & at least two stacks with a reasonable list & I could trophy whore on my own terms again but this is less then ideal. Like I said still looking forward to picking it up, definitely going to get both versions as well. Can't remember why I never played these games but I swear the emulation wasn't good when I wanted to try so it's still pretty exciting on that level. Not too many shooters in this style but Musha Aleste, Guwange & Homura are all pretty sweet, looking forward to something else along those lines.
  7. Oh I didn't mean to imply I had a bad time. 2D shooting is my favourite so it was great to experience all those loops for the first time. Got much better at the game during the process. Yeah Scramble is cool, laid some serious groundwork for future horizontal shooters. Just noticed when I was doing the trophies for this comp the life force/salamander bit was over before it even started which was a tiny bit sad, I could have gone a lot longer on that one!
  8. I did this comp recently in 4 hours with no save prepping, & scramble took up a quarter of the total time. I'd never reached the end before let alone loop it, & it definitely took a minute to sus out that tunnel section. I even fucked myself over by saving at an impossible spot & had to suicide & start that section over again. I thought I only did 6 or 7 loops but it could have been more. I reckon Scramble could be a potential roadblock for some. I know it's short and everything but it would have been nice to have less Scramble & more Salamander! Less Haunted Castle in general would have been cool as well, at least now there'll be no dealing with that one on the Castlevania comp.
  9. This has gotta be the most random game to see mentioned like this. I had to see what was up &... Thanks so much for doing this! I have both games & always thought it looked bad with a large gap between them like that. Looks great now! Of course that doesn't help my issue of constantly getting to the last fight in survival & loosing when the boss is almost down but one random day I'm sure it'll happen.
  10. Well yeah I'm not exactly disputing the violation lol. My deal though is over 10 years ago I tried a ton of ids I wanted and they were already all taken so I glanced at a badly done cd reissue of Brazillian Deathrash band 'Sarcofago' and adopted a misprinted song title from that album because I just wanted to access the network features & was sure no one would have picked that for an ID for obvious reasons. It could have been any name for all I cared at the time. 25 years old I was & impatient as was humanly possible. Anyway since I was stuck with the ID I 'owned' it. When I played with people they just called me ready which was fine. At some point my gf pronounced it 'Ready Tofu KY' and I could never see it as anything but that moving forward. However, I think Tofu is bland & KY is trash lube so I'm honestly happy to be rid of the name even if the change has come sooner rather than later. I was going to change it anyway but only after finishing up on some online progress in some ps3 games. Said progress isn't that far in that it would be unbearable to start from scratch but I'm interested in what if anything has survived so I'm currently waiting to test some ps3 titles, 70% through an install as I'm writing this now. I'll pop in that thread of yours with my findings. Also I edited my post yesterday because I thought I'd written something wrong but actually looking again at the Aus leaderboards I noticed "Tee_Baggins" is on the board twice, once with his old name & once with the new. I wonder if it was voluntary or not. I also wonder what will happen to a user I saw on here with a '1488' nickname who claimed to be a jewish silversmith as opposed to a nazi sympathiser. I never knew if his story was to be believed but I wonder if those sorts of nicks will be a thing of the past. Also wondering about 666 usernames, I'm curious in general about the scope of offence which is at a bit of a peak in the current day. Anyway Tekken Tag 2 finally installed while I was writing this & all progress is intact with the new name displayed. Namco are 3 for 3 so far, very encouraging. *edit* I can't find this thread you're talking about with info on new names with old games, would you be able to link me to that? I've got a ton of obscure/unpopular stuff to test so I could be a pretty good contributor with valuable information that barely anyone cares about
  11. Here's something a bit different, apologies if this has been covered already since I haven't looked at the whole thread. Last night I had to sign in & received a notification that I was required to change my name due to violation of terms of service. I sorted it out & I'm not particularly upset about it but I wonder how far they're going with this. On the Aus leaderboards front page I noticed the number 1's 'Me_The_Fokker' is not there & I wonder if they had the same thing happen. I've got to laugh. I did 10 years with this stupid id & 500+ hours of productive online where I was always helpful & considerate save for a tiny bit of Rocket League sledging. Having to change ID's is getting off lightly really, I haven't braved the ps3 yet but it can't possibly be as bad as the time my X360 HDD died & I lost every save I had. Anyway that was last night after work & I was well into the beer already. I tried out Puyo Puyo Tetris & my rank/details were still there for the online. The other night I got the top score on the Rym9000 EU version leaderboards & when I fired those up the new name was there in the same spot. Feeling a bit more confident I fired up Ridge Racer on the Vita & all the progress (credits, lvl etc) was still there with the new name. I have another couple of hundred games to test, a lot of which is ps3 so I'll prepare for the worst and check some of those titles out in the near future. Haven't synced my new id here yet, hopefully all the site stuff works out alright & I won't have to do anything but lie low for a week while it all gets sorted.
  12. That's incredible, one of the best Vita hauls I've ever seen! Well done!!!
  13. I'd say Eagle Flight is totally manageable if the player is enjoying the game. Someone who wasn't enjoying it would probably find doing all the 3-stars a horrible life. The times you have to get for 3-stars coupled with the one hit & die - back to the start rule are very strict to say the least. Having no map at all & finding the collectables through sound for the feathers & visual clues for the fish I thought was a really cool feature but I bet tons of people would find that quite disagreeable. I thought it was an incredible experience & couldn't get enough of it so I got all the single player done over a week & it didn't feel like too much effort. After that I settled into the online grind which was just awful except for the times I was waiting around for random's and ended up playing for real (those games were so much fun). I definitely had to go quite a bit further than the alleged requirements to get them to pop but I'd recommend the game any day, even if you don't plan on getting the platinum. Tried out To the Top on an alt & it seemed pretty cool & probably quite manageable once you get into the swing of things & learn the course layouts. I'm thinking I'll tackle that one day. Also tried out Windlands & the running/jumping mechanics early on seemed completely unsound, I might be missing something with that but I did get the impression it would be enjoyable after getting used the the controls. I recently got an Aim controller & hit up Farpoint. I'll be damned if that's not one of the best FPS experiences I've ever had. I used to have arachnophobia in RL though & worked through & got past it, but I don't mind admitting this game scared the shit out of me at times. Very intense. Hopefully I can man up and try a bit harder at this game in the future but even if I never played it again I feel like I've already got my monies worth having completed the campaign. Tried Firewall on an alt as well & it seemed awesome but it's a massive time sink by the looks of things & tons of online which may be undesirable to some.
  14. Damn, I've thought about dropping a few hundred on the ones I'm really keen on but keep waiting for a sale that never happens. It's a very Aussie way of doing things. With that said I really regret not picking up that Darius anniversary thing on ps4 with all the soundtrack cds. I thought at the time 300 bucks was too much but nowadays everyone wants 500 & I wish I'd just spent the 300 😞
  15. Hah yeah I was thinking about that ps1 set, so stingy! I wish there were more than just the four individual games with platinums on ps4, those were great to do. Agree with more 2D on ps4, more classic stuff would be nice to balance out the modern flash game looking stuff (some of which is admittedly alright). Thankfully the over the top price of all those Hamster published Arcade Archives titles on ps4 will make just about any compilation seem like good value so bring it on I say! Was just chuckling a bit over how miserly retro compilations have been throughout generations. I remember paying 80 bucks for 'tecmo hit parade' on ps2 & it had a whopping 8 or so games. Before that there was the set of Namco compilations on ps1 mentioned above that made budgets bleed. Finally there are many with multiple volumes & it certainly couldn't have been due to lack of space on the disc. I'd bet they're released like this 'cause they know people like me will just buy them anyway. I'm interested in just about any re release of old 2D stuff especially arcade titles. It's pretty wild how much good stuff the switch is getting & already has. I haven't followed it too closely & didn't know about that comp in particular but it's nice that Rolling Thunder is on that one, at least they aren't pretending like no one out there wants to revisit it! I'd like to see some of those old light gun shooters adapted for VR & the aim controller but I doubt that will ever happen.
