    Game has badly aged, unfortunately. The controls, especially the aiming system, are really awful and make the game frustrating unnecessarily. Not to mention the camera. Played today, it loses a lot, surely at the time was much better, we're still talking about a game that's almost twenty years old.
    I hope Vice City will be better, gameplay talking, since it's 80s themed I'll surely like it regardless.

     

    Simple plat if you use cheats, you have to complete the game at 100% and you need to be careful to do missions in the right order, because otherwise you won't be able to complete them (only in two cases you can miss them anyway). I also reccomend not using the money cheat because it glitches the criminal rating, and don't abuse of tank cheat because it can corrupts the save (I didn't use either of them and didn't have any issues). I've also read that the Riot cheat makes the final mission impossible, or at least very difficult apparently, so don't use it as well.

      Nice work! I honestly thought the same about Vice City's controls, so uhh, good luck? :/

      Really tempted to get the GTA Trilogy from the current. Enjoyed those games a lot back then. But due to having to save on money for a new TV, I haven't decided yet if I should drop the money or not.

  4. @BlindMango What about me? I'm still having the issue.
  5. I have 953 and the rarest is "You are the best!" (0.07%) from Futuridium EP Deluxe (PS4). I'd like to hit 1k before 2020.

  7. 100% #47: Sonic Mania Difficulty: 4/10 My first Sonic game, I liked it but not too much actually, but in the end it's still a pretty good Platform. Maybe someday I'll try the other games. 100% pretty simple. Hardest trophy is for sure getting gold in every Blue Spheres stage, btw with a guide and some attempts is doable. A note for the "Collect 'Em All" trophy. Since it can only be done in Mania mode, if like me you started the game with Sonic & Tails, before restarting from scratch with another character (with them it's hard because Tails damages enemies), try to keep him flying while you do the rest. In this way I did it quite easily.

      Gratz. I'm demoralized by the blue sphere stages. Apparently in Sonic 3 there were only 14 sphere stages. No idea why this has over 30.

      @Honor_Hand Thanks, I'll see. Mania wasn't bad, nice Platform but nothing more. I'm not used to the Sonic games, I found the controls a bit uncomfortable tbh, even after some hours. Style and music are very very cool btw, the look is very good. I'm curious to try the others, I see there's a lot of games!

       

      @mecharobot Yes indeed, they are too many! They were just boring, not fun at all.

      That's one of the good things about the PSNP community. Random gifts from very kind strangers. Congrats, enjoy it. ^_^

  10. I have a problem with my Trophy Cabinet. After changing ID, the cabinet was left intact (before changing I had the same trophies you see now, and they stayed there). If I click on "Edit" though, the cabinet screen opens but it's like empty, I can't do anything except click "Close", and I can't see the trophies. If I try to add a trophy to it, it shows it on the cabinet edit screen, but outside of that, it shows the old trophies. I changed the ID a month ago, but I didn't try to edit the cabinet until now (I wanna add Raiden IV's plat to it), and also I had no problem with mergeing the two names. There's just this thing. Any idea? :/ Thanks.

    It's happened. FINALLY!

    Game was fun, it's a nice shmup! I enjoyed it until I had to do the 1ccs runs though. xD

    Even though I used pause-exploit, it's been truly hard and I'm giving it a 10 anyway. The 1ccs with the pause are a like an endurance test. You need to play 2h+ (depending on how much you pause) and you have to stay really focused untile the end. If I remember well, I took about 2 hours and 10 minutes for Normal and Hard, and 2 hours and 40 minutes for Very Hard and Ultimate.

    I was doing fine until I had to do Very Hard, then I don't know... I got lost. I thought to give up several times but in the end I didn't (thankfully). There's a big gap between Hard and Very Hard, it's just crazy.
    The hardest 1ccs were Very Hard indeed, and Normal, because you're learning to master the pause trick and the game in general. Then Hard, which is pretty much like Normal, also after the first 1cc, you got used to the thing and it becomes easier than the first time, and Ultimate. Yes, I said Ultimate. It's supposed to be the highest difficulty, but I did it in less than a day after Very Hard (with three total lifes left! xD). This shows how important mentality is. If you think you can't do it, you won't make it. After doing Very Hard I realized that it was possible, and I did Ultimate right away. IMO if you can do Normal you can do Hard, and if you can do Very Hard you can do Ultimate as well. The problem is just between Hard and Very Hard indeed, as I said because of the gap there is.

    Then Double Play (two ships at one time). Luckily you can play on Normal and you just have to do the first loop. I underestimated it though, it's been actually quite difficult. It's hard to use the pause here, but I managed to use it anyway. While pauseing, sometimes I moved just one ship at time, and others I moved the sticks togheter with the left hand, with the right thumb fixed on Options (I used DS4 for all the 1ccs because I had issues with my DS3s).

    I saved the replay for the Ultimate and Double Play runs. If I can make a video with my phone, I'll upload the runs on YT, for those interested. :) 

    Absolutely one of the games I'm most proud of. Really glad it's over.

      Excellent GG 😁😁😁!!!!! 

      I attempted this myself but just found the game to be extremely tedious, and stopped being bothered to play it.

      Also, Its nice to see someone agree with me that its a 10/10 difficulty even with pause exploits for a change.

      @KaKrackle Thanks. :)
      I gave it 10 simply because after what I've been through, it would have been ridiculous to give it a lower rating. For me, even with the pause, it's really a great plat and if you can do it, you have all my respect!

      Maybe one day if I get lots of spare time to get them 1ccs done I might get back to it. For now though Im not too fussed.

  13. When you took 10 days to do Very Hard and less than a day to do Ultimate... it can't be, seriously. And I did it with 3 lives left in total. x'D I'm soooooooo happy that I'm DONE with the 1cc 2 loops. I still have to do the 1cc on Double yes, but since I can play on Normal and, most importantly, it's just the first loop, I'm not too much worried about that.

    I hope to do it in the next days and then, I can finally say a BIG goodbye to this game.

      Nice. Congrats! Your persistence to stick with this shmup and its fairly long higher difficulty runs + 1ccs is awesome

      @Fen Thanks! :)

      I'm almost there. I tried the Double and it doesn't seem too bad. With some practice I should definitely do it. At this point nothing can stop me! :D
