  1. I'm not loyal to Sony, though I do have every platform of theirs other than the PSP, because they happen to sell the products I want. Personally I wish Microsoft will do better than this gen. I'm not looking to switch, due to how many games I have here, but at least then Sony will actually have to compete and offer better services.
  2. It's all about getting a lucky streak, if it stays connected or disconnected for too long, it will then stay off.
  3. To be fair it's the other way around, a speedrun is a collection of all cheese tactics available in a game to beat it as fast as possible, but I can see why you were confused.
  4. 2013 is only available as a timed trial on the EU store, not sure you can get the trophies from that.
  5. This will likely get lost in the noise, but late syncing should never be considered adequate evidence for a flag on its own. Any amount of time set is going to be arbitrary, so there needs to be at least one more reason that would warrant any sort of suspicion and examination at all. For example a game whose servers have closed a while ago, or time stamps that have demonstrably been changed. Why would someone go out of his way to create false old timestamps for a game that's still obtainable anyway?
  6. Two questions for the mod team, even if they are probably not relevant to the referenced dispute in question: i) How can you tell when a trophy was synced after the fact, unless you were already keeping watch on a specific account? ii) If I recall it's been said that this site doesn't track users unless someone added them, and also doesn't update users that have been inactive for a long time. So how can you know for sure it was the user who synced them late, and not on the site's side?
  7. 2011 (I believe this is the one you're looking for?), 2012 & 2014 still show up on the EU store. 2013 only has a timed trial available. The US store only shows 2014, and also a 2013 listing without an add to cart button.
  8. Personally I believe it is more likely that someone with a DLC will take a detour to complete it before finishing the platinum, making the platinum time longer. But honestly? Auto-popping through different versions of the game is considered OK, and even presuming what you're saying is likely, the advantage doesn't even come close to that. Since the system would have to ignore DLC trophies after the platinum, presumably it would only consider a base game trophy as a first?
  9. Have you had any discussion with regards to how likely it is?
  10. Wolfenstein TNC was by far the biggest disappointment of 2017, and it came the same year as Mass Effect Andromeda. It was a step down to its predecessor in every regard. The gameplay design isn't nearly as polished, and it shows when there's a commandant in basically every area with enemies to facilitate the grind for the post-game. Difficulty really restricts your playstyle unless you drop it all the way down to the bottom. Story was also a major letdown. TNO made you care about every character, and I went in with high expectations, but by the end I wanted almost every new character in TNC to be killed off.
  11. Looks like your turbo controller has an idle timer like mine, which basically defeats the point of even having a turbo controller. However, I found a little trick that worked for me when doing the level 100 grind. Place the controller on a spot around the limit of its signal range, so it loses connection every few seconds, but then proceeds to reconnect. That should reset the idle timer every time, and if you're lucky and keeps doing it steadily like it did for me, it should be able to stay on overnight. Obviously that will completely throw off your calculations on how long you need to leave it on, and you can't exit the match or you'll lose your multipliers. So I kept a lot of margin of error and I think I ended up at level 108 or so.
  12. It's referring to the very specific scenario of deleting your local profile to clear all your unsynced earned trophies, then using the saves you prepared to earn the trophies in a time you couldn't earn without deleting your profile. That's what "impossible time frame" specifically means. If it's possible to deliberately not earn trophies without deleting your profile to achieve the same result, that's allowed.
  13. Hold the phone, am I getting this right? Are you really saying people are getting flagged with no further proof for playing an entirely offline game offline? Huh?
  14. ... until you've played a game like this. You just finished your execution or spell? It would be such a shame if a wraith had queued up a grab attack to land just on that sweet spot before you regain control. Invincibility frames? What are those? You double jumped in the air? Don't be silly dear, your hitbox is still on the ground as far as that cyclop's stomp is concerned. The reach of the enemy's attack is longer than your dodge roll's? Well sucks to be you I guess. Why do you keep mentioning invincibility frames? Sounds like a thing for scrubs. - Hey guys, doesn't it make sense for Kratos to keel over for a couple seconds if he takes too much damage? - Great idea Bob! The enemies do it, why wouldn't the main character? - Should we give that recovery animation a grace period so the enemies can't chain stunlocks? - What? Why would we do that? - Hmm, this fight takes place in a tiny room. What enemies should we place in it? - How about a cyclops that takes up half the screen, accompanied by wraiths that require pitch perfect timing to block and can launch attacks from off-screen? - You're full of great ideas today Bob, I don't what we'd do without you. - Hey guys, I just noticed that the enemies' collision can easily trap Kratos into a corner and allows them to wail endlessly on him with no possible recourse. Do you think that's gonna be a problem? - Nah, you need to git gud to not allow that to happen. I'm up for a tough but fair experience, but fair is not a word I would use here.
  15. I'm referring to this entry specifically. https://store.playstation.com/en-us/product/UP0082-NPUB30370_00-TRUNDERWORLD0000 It's the only one in the trilogy sold on its own on the store, which strikes me as weird. Either way, it's the only one I didn't play way back when but wanted to make sure it does unlock trophies. Has anyone bought this one on its own rather than the trilogy package?
  16. That's a pretty interesting timing in the announcement, 2 days after FF7R announced it would be delayed to contest CP2077's previous release window.
  17. You're comparing platforms whose end results we already know. There has generally been little difference in the transitional periods, when devs haven't figured the tricks of the new hardware yet. Each iteration really shines towards the end of its lifecycle.
  18. "When we launched the console versions of GWENT back in 2017, our intention was to provide console players with the same level of support as their PC counterparts." As someone who installed the game on PS4 as soon as it became available in open beta, that's a laughable statement, and a weak show from CDPR. At least own up to your mistakes, console players were second class citizens from day 1. I'm glad I saw the writing on the wall and chose to drop the game as soon as a trophy list was added to it. Not that Homecoming was good enough to keep me playing, compared to early open beta.
  19. Uhm, no, trophy time stamps use a hidden clock you have no power over. It can only be controlled by the Sony servers, hence why you will get a missing time stamp on any trophy earned from a machine that hasn't logged into them before. As for the game, since I haven't played it yet and made sure to remain completely in the dark about it, can someone clarify without spoilers: Are those voices other players that were shown there's someone with a birthday in the vicinity, or are they actually the game itself?
  20. Other than the bugs that can be ironed out after the fact (even though they shouldn't be), the only glaring flaw Andromeda had was the atrocious writing. But for a series that became what it is due to the world building and characters, that is a major hiccup that absolutely can't be downplayed. If their writing team can't pull their shit together for the new outing they're better off not bothering with Mass Effect and using the engine and gameplay to start a new IP. The unfavourable comparisons to its predecessors would mostly hurt its outing in the long run.
  21. PS4 has been hackable for a long time now and I'm pretty sure your example would still return a missing time stamp. If you see that something is definitely failing the criteria above, it's probably illegitimate and should be reported.
  22. To clarify what the above poster said: - What is allowed is to create various save files to get as far as possible in all of them without earning a single trophy. That includes setting up your save files at all of the trophy events, so long as it's possible to get there without earning any trophies. That's the important distinguishing factor. - What is not allowed is using those save files to skip an otherwise unskippable trophy. I haven't played this game yet, but if one trophy is completely impossible to earn without earning another, and the times between them are impossibly fast, then that's flaggable. Also it's impossible to change the system clock, at least legitimately. The internal clock the system uses to stamp trophies cannot be accessed by the user. It's possible to hack trophies and create impossible time stamps, but always look at it through the lens of the 2 criteria above before reporting someone.
  23. No, it's bad for sticking to a story arc way after it no longer makes sense to stick to, instead of coming up with something new and interesting. And if you mean about how
  24. I already liked Origins more than its predecessors because it was the first one to put some effort into making the storyline at least somewhat compelling, as opposed to the other 3 games that kept revolving around the long after it stopped making sense. You know, since But then Arkham Knight came out and made that statement false for a considerable amount of people.
  25. Does anyone know if the Arkham Knight version provided contains the Scarecrow Nightmare DLC? I've never pulled the trigger on buying that game because I couldn't find info on if there was a "correct" version to not screw yourself over.
