  1. I tried to do 1 level every night in the past few weeks running arcade mode over and over while watching some YouTube videos. I managed to finish it a couple of days ago and have done some DLC trophies today as well. Very happy I managed to get this pretty much done, despite my very busy agenda right now. Good luck to everyone still trying to go for it!
  2. Sony does not care about banning trophy hackers, this site does.
  3. Can five people make a trophy video guide please thanks.
  4. I guess most of us want to feel like they are making some progress on their account. I do too. You do not even need to care about the leaderboards, I know I don't but I still enjoy knowing that I am making progress in my games and ultimately towards a platinum or 100%. But this desire for feeling progress can also translate to needing immediate gratification. So: spend time on a game -> get a trophy (or nowadays a couple of plats). Personally I have very little free time right now. Between work and rebuilding the extension to our house I try to get about 30 minutes at the end of the day to relax with some gaming. I am using that time to work on Max Payne 3 multiplayer levels. That means I have not popped a trophy for more than 2 weeks and might go without for another 2 weeks or so. Heck, I might not even beat the server shutdown date. Still I feel like I am making more worthwhile progress than if I were to spend that same time popping one or two Breakthrough platinums every day. But if you need that instant gratification, I can see you going for the easy plat option. The saddest part about all of this though, is this. Look at all the comments about the train part being hard. Some players even say they gave up after trying for hours or broke their controller in anger. I guess that's what happens when you only play 1/10 difficulty games that are actaually so easy they should be rated 0/10. I try very hard to be open minded when it comes to different tastes in gaming and trophies, but... Jesus Christ, it's time you looked for a different hobby folks.
  5. Oh no, strong opinions. Quick, close the thread!
  6. They dropped the ball in a huge way. I can notice that Google thinks that too, because more and more PSNP trophy guides get ranked above the ones at PST and it used to be very much the other way round.
  7. I agree up to a certain point, you need to start somewhere or you will never start at all. But it's not like these are things that "we the people" are doing, it's all by the national or local government. They are able to put their focus on specific subjects, to prioritize bigger polluters in their laws and regulations. So when they conveniently gloss over large industries and focus their efforts instead on reasonably small consumer oriented measures, you need to wonder if you're not doing them a huge favour by calling out people on whatabouttism. Because often I feel like they are acting like they care oh so much while doing oh so very little substantial. To be honest, I feel like many of these regulations are mainly meant so we can feel good about ourselves in our own little bubble. A good example is the European regulation that forbids the production of vacuum cleaners over 900W. I bought one of 900W a couple of months ago and I now take twice as long to clean the house than I did with my old 1200W vacuum cleaner. So now I actually use up more energy and the best thing is that dust is still gathering up like crazy. So yay environment and yay health! (And no this isn't just me or bad luck, the EU recently had to forbid the use the energy label of vacuum cleaners because the tests that manufacturers were performing turned out to be highly unrealistic. Of course those kind of tests are already pretty well optimized, but this almost reached "diesel gate" status. It's the only thing the manufacturers could apparently come up with to trick consumers into thinking that this new generation of vacuum cleaners was actually half decent.)
  8. To be honest, it would be an excellent addition. It takes nothing away from other players. The only reason that it has not been implemented is that the site owner just does not have time or motivation to add it. I think it really is that simple. As is the case with other excellent additions and improvements that have been coined in the last few years. This website is the virtual definition of moribund. Sometimes I feel like it's the endless bickering and trolling that supplies it just enough energy to keep going
  9. It's definitely good enough for me if you take some time to look and think about it for yourself, so thanks for that. I'm not expecting an actual change anyway, let alone a purge of the profiles I pointed to. The thing is that people tend to get really worked up about this subject and that always seems so silly to me when the stats are so very skewed and oftentimes also outdated. Profiles that were not updated for 4 years, with not a single plat or completion percentage of any game over 20% is allowed to muddy the rarity waters and help make about 20 PS3 games ultra rare. Yes, let's definitely fight each other to the death based on shit like that
  10. Ah, thanks for that. I figured that what I said was the case because deleting some of my own 0% lists did nothing for my stats that I could notice. Thanks for the correction.
  11. You would be right if this site was opt-in, but it is not. You can add any profile you want yourself on the homepage of this website. The proof is in the pudding. You just have to go through the leaderboards yourself to see what happened as a result. The turnover point is around the 19.000-20.000th page. After that, there are about 60.000 more pages of people that are very obviously not trophy hunters. If they were at some point, it was maybe for a few days. All those profiles and stats are meaningless and should be purged. You also seem to think that a couple of people would be doing this, but it's a well-known practice. I challenge you to boot up any old PS3 game that has leaderboards that you can browse, you will find out that many of those players have been added here by someone at some point. Sometimes out of sheer curiosity, I have done that myself too. (By the way, you need to have at least 1 trophy unlocked because 0% games are not used for the stats.) I argue that having all these meaningless profiles bloating the stats actually increases the perceived difference between "good" and "bad" games in this discussion. Because only trophy hunters/whores are buying Breakthrough games, while a LOT of non-trophy hunters play the actually good games, pushing their rarity down. And like I said, many of them are counted in the stats when they obviously should not be if you want to only compare trophy hunters.
  12. People are fighting over meaningless data every day on this website. About 80% of the tracked profiles are just casual players or alts with not even a single platinum to their name. Most of your UR's are UR because the vast majority of the tracked profiles are not actually trophy hunters themselves. This is a point that is habitually glossed over because there is not a single person in this community that would benefit from acknowledging it.
  13. PS3's Rapala's Fishing Frenzy is supposed to be pretty good. I have it in my collection but not tried it yet. Partly because it has no trophies, which is probably why this is not a very good suggestion. It can however be played completely offline!
  14. Then maybe it's time to switch religions or something.
  15. Anything more to do with the stock PSN data is unlikely to be implemented in the website itself. You may be able to plead your case to Husky in this topic about PSNP+. That is a browser script that adds some great extra options to PSNProfiles.
  16. With Codemasters being part of EA now I do not expect this F1 game to make it to PS Now unfortunately.
  17. Yes. Post less. Read more.
  18. I'm not sure what you mean but it sounds kinky.
  19. Pretty impressive if you can finish in two minutes though.
  20. I started the multiplayer last weekend by grinding arcade mode. If you started the MP specifically to go for the plat, arcade mode is the fastest way to level up. Levels went up fine for me there and were saved (I am also NAT 2) I did need to go online in a public match to pop a level related trophy though.
  21. After playing all three versions I think the PS4 version is alright, the PS3 version is already struggling quite a bit and the Vita version should never have happened at all.
  22. I finished NASCAR Heat 3 and with that my final game of the first tier. Compared to many of the PS3 NASCAR games it's pretty much a walk in the park. Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (PS3) NASCAR The Game: Inside Line (PS3) Wolfenstein (PS3) Farming Simulator (PS3) 100% NASCAR Heat 3 (PS4) My second tier will be very racing oriented: MotoGP 09/10 (PS3) IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey (PS3) Project Cars 2 (PS4) WRC 7 (PS4) Assetto Corsa (PS4) That should probably see me through to Christmas considering that it's already June
  23. My computer was shit and now I have one that could leave earth and power its own civilization if it wanted to.
  24. Nothing out of the ordinary. Another announcement just means yet another attempt by Sony to push me back to PC gaming.
  25. I finished Farming Simulator on PS3 last week. The only 3 ultra rare trophies are for collecting 100 horse shoes, which takes about 2,5 hours in total with a guide. The rest of the game is a breeze. After becoming a millionaire idling around you can use your wealth to buy the best equipment to actually farm for a bit and then finally rubberband the 1000km distance trophy. It was fun for what it is, I can understand why people like to play these kind of games legit. Not me though, it's almost June and I still have the first tier to finish. There is one game left for that. I will be using a second swap already, because it turns out that to do Madden NFL 11 you actually need to know quite a lot about American Football. Both the trophy list and the trophy guides I find are total gibberish to me. And to be honest: I would rather have this game sit at 20% forever than spend any time learning about it. So anyway, tier 1: Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (PS3) NASCAR The Game: Inside Line (PS3) Wolfenstein (PS3) Farming Simulator (PS3) 100% Madden NLF 11 (PS3) -> Becomes NASCAR Heat 3 (PS4)
