  1. I don't own the game anymore, but should be easy to check for someone who is willing to put in the work. Get the trophy, die and try to get the other. The main problem would be if the game puts a checkpoint right as you make the choice, which is actually not that unlikely, in which case this will be flaggable. Personally that wouldn't stand out as much to me if it wasn't also for the time between Evil Eats and Good Riot. Even some of the current fastest achievers, so presumably people who knew their way around the game and were intentionally speedrunning it, don't have a time as fast as that. Can't test it for myself, but just something to consider.
  2. So what I get from that is, it doesn't matter if you are online or have even unlocked the car, the game will allow you to run those races anyway? I mean I'll likely do those before shutdown anyway just to be sure, but as others have pointed out the game is quite lengthy and I'd like to do it at my own pace if I'm able to.
  3. I find that, unlike "professional" critic reviews, user reviews are usually worth a damn. Critics nowadays are so laughably disconnected from the end user, that I would rarely take one into account. So when a game is also on PC I make sure to check its Steam page. Because the "score" there is purely statistic/percentage based, I find it's much less arbitrary. I round up my investigation by skimming through the first page or two of top rated user comments, to find out what the general grievances with the game are.
  4. This is a bit of the shot in the dark, but has anyone tried entering those events offline, just in case the games allows you to use the cars anyway for those events only? It sounds like something that they might have considered, rather than locking you out of DLC content you paid for just because you don't own the only car you can use in it.
  5. I can confirm as well. Completely fresh profile, head popped at exactly 25 fatalities. Does the first part of the throne room that opens with only 10 heads contain enough chests to get 5 of each, or do you have to open the next room as well? There's very little chance this isn't intentional, so it's unlikely to get changed anytime soon.
  6. The answer to the title might not be as obvious as one would think, since you cannot download and install the DLC manually. Instead, it's already part of the game files, and the game has to authenticate to verify that your account owns it in order to unlock it. I can't help but worry that taking the servers offline will also disable that authentication. From what I understand the content unlock remains even after you go offline after the initial verification, but what happens if you have to play on a new system? I might be completely wrong on how this works, but just something to consider for whoever is postponing the offline portion of the game.
  7. Interesting how anything beneficial becomes a top priority to fix asap. Ah well, I was going to pick it up this weekend but having just come off the Max Payne 3 grind looks like I'm not touching this game.
  8. Ah, I see. So basically if you exit the tower but not the tower menu you will keep getting the same opponent, and all you have to do to reshuffle for a new opponent is quit to the main menu, is that correct. Got it, thanks. Sorry for asking the obvious, still waiting for my copy.
  9. Thanks. What do you have to do to then change who you fight and grind for another head?
  10. The trickiest part would be moderating the thing because it would have to be done manually, but that part is already crowdsourced by users. It would still take some effort on a mod's part, but it wouldn't be as titanic. If that's done, adding a "Filter by server closure" option would be much simpler.
  11. That someone already exists. And the information is all crowdsourced so if he stops someone else will take his place.
  12. Never again. https://forums.cdprojektred.com/index.php?threads/gwent-ask-a-dev.8684150/page-162#post-11490406 The "different way" they came up with was a time limited premium keg that you have to sink 4000 scraps (not ore) into and each contains 5 premium cards. It's an amazingly awful deal, but if you are looking to get done with the platinum and never look back, waiting for it to appear again and dusting your entire non-premium collection to turn it into premium kegs might be your best bet. If I recall they also added some premium cards from the basic set that can't be crafted anymore into the Year of the Boar or the seasonal reward tree.
  13. Gonna need a source for that one.
  14. Guys. Poe's Law. Read about it. This one wasn't even trying. Then again I could be completely wrong because that's the entire point of Poe's Law.
  15. You do realize that's not even remotely the point, right? As for the reason, that was never a mystery. It's because Playstation HQ was moved to California, allowing them to impose their ridiculous moral guardianship at will.
