  1. Well his defence gave up over 400 yards again today, though I'm not sure if any coach in history could turn our defence into anything palatable! Lost a close one today, was a must win for both but seems like we played like crap again and needed a Baltimore 3rd quarter meltdown to even make it close. Hopefully we just tank from here on out, go 5-11 and clean house. I always used to stick with Marvin Lewis, and he probably would do a good job with another franchise where he's given tons of support, but his story ran in Cincinnati about a decade ago. Not sure what we achieve by sticking by him as we know his ceiling with the Bengals is a one-and-done in the playoffs season.
  2. I'm probably the wrong person to quote on this, purely as I actually enjoyed the grind to Resistance 2's 10k kills for the Killing Machine trophy!
  3. Thats a big loss for the Rams. We've fired our DC Teryl Austin. No surprise there since his defence was comfortably breaking bad records left, right and centre. Marvin Lewis calling defensive plays the rest of the season, definitely good news there too.
  4. I agree, if the Saints give Dez the time, then they've picked up a very good WR when he's on his game. But then again, the Saints could field Drew Brees and some guys from this forum at WR, and they'd put up 30 points on most teams. That might've been the Bengals worst performance of all time today. Equal biggest defeat in franchise history, if the Saints wouldn't have quit trying to score from midway through the 3rd quarter, they might've put up 100 points and 1000 yards, and that's literally not even a joke. I really don't know what guys have to do to get fired in Cincinnati, it's beyond ridiculous.They've somehow got to go from that today and win at Baltimore next week, as that game is literally the whole season. Lose and no way they're doing anything but tank the rest of the way. With the Steelers and Chargers on the schedule, that'll take us to 6 losses so we have to win the rest. With that said... the Saints imo are the best team in the league. Serious chance of a 2nd Superbowl. Hope Brees gets it.
  5. Well I expected us to get beat today, but jesus christ... every possession a TD, Saints on course for 70 points... the Bengals poised to be the first team ever to give up 500 yards in 3 straight games. I think people looked at the records and expected the Bengals to put up a good fight, but we lucked out with comebacks against the Colts/Dolphins/Falcons and could easily have choked it all away against the Bucs... should be sitting on 2-3 wins but have been lucky enough to manage 5. Really this is a bad team carried by a decent offence who could've used a top 5 pick in the next draft. Oh well, hopefully we'll be lucky enough to pick up a 28-point deficit comeback win here in the 2nd half 😅
  6. That is seriously impressive. Can remember this being a pain in the backside to get even when boosting it! Overwatch (PS4) - Overwatch Platinum Trophy Definitely my proudest non-boosted difficult one. Loved the game the minute I got it and never thought I'd manage to get the platinum without boosting, which would've ruined the sense of achievement. Ended up playing the game an absolute crap load and getting pretty proficient at a few different characters, which led to some of the tougher trophies rolling in. Rapid Discord I think is universally agreed as very difficult to legitimately get, not necessarily a walk in the park to boost properly. Played a heck load of Zenyatta and managed to get it after many hours of just trying to be as good a support as I could be. Got the game at the tailend of 2016 so had already passed some of the nerfs which had some of the characters trophies less easy to pull off (D.va's defence matrix for example). Hanzo's 4K with Dragonstrike I only recently got, way after the powerhouse it used to be. Really enjoyed picking up each hero and trying to figure out what would be the best way to play them, best maps/gametypes/scenarios needed in order to pull off the requirements for the trophy. Often found myself basing my picks on what the other team had gone for (much easier to get 4 with the DragonBlade if you're playing against DPS heroes!). Took me almost 2 years to pull off the platinum, but thoroughly enjoyed the journey there and feel like I can hold my own on most of the heroes. Will be one of the few I play long after trophies.
  7. Saw this was the case for their PC userbase and wondered what they'd be doing to manage that on console. To be honest, if they're going to streamline the space you need for the game's data then imo this is convenient rather than inconvenient. A game like this with all the constant updates you need in order to play just ends up bloated game data (even if in Overwatch's case, it doesnt really take up too much HDD space). Seeing them reset will actually be pretty helpful, as long as the required game data space is less than it currently it.
  8. I'm not too fussed about the Kill 20 players trophy, just as 20 players is a pretty low threshold for any 'x number of kills' trophy, and to be honest you're bound to run into 20 people online who are already shooting at you... every online lobby in any game I've ever played always has one player just going around trying to knock off the rest! But seriously, I dont think this should need to result in you mindlessly going after too many others just for the trophy. Love the look of the rest of the list, very much like the single player games. The Level 100 trophy I imagine will be a fair grind if anything like the single player games. I imagine thats on there as they hope for this to be a game with a longlasting online community. May not be so trophy hunter friendly, but we'll see. Otherwise, looks a good list.
  9. Yeah I can't see that much care was taken to optimise the space the game takes. I think people have every right to complain about a 36GB patch on Day 1 with that in mind.
  10. If we can get a couple of picks then maybe so. I definitely think we can score 30+ but the Saints have been playing lights out on offence, so even if we do I'm not sure it'll matter unless we get a couple of turnovers. AJ out is a big loss, but Andy focuses too much on him sometimes anyway so hopefully Tyler Boyd will continue his breakout year and stepup. Should be a great game, if we play well I could see there being 80+ points scored combined. All the best to you guys too!
  11. As a Bengals fan... *Insert Bang Head against wall emjoi*. The Steelers do indeed look to be back at it after early season struggles. I think the Saints could put 50 on us this weekend... the Bengals defence I think is on track to be the worst of all time in terms of yards given up. We haven't been appalling in terms of points against, and fortunately the offence has been good most of the season. Brees and the Saints though... could see us giving up 800 passing yards this weekend!
  12. As a long time Assassins Creed obsessive... I'm not too far into this one, but not feeling it so far. They've changed from the whole Sequences structure to just making this feeling like any other massive open world RPG on the market, with endless Side quests which are thus far all fairly similar. The combat rejigging I'm mixed on.... it's not bad, but certainly makes the fights feel much more bulky than they used to... Assassins Creed was never a game about combat, but the focus is moreso on this one. The Gear system... again, it's just not unique, it's a rip off of what Destiny has. I certainly need to give it more time, but this hasn't done it for me so far. Just feels like they've made a fairly unique franchise and decided to take away the unique elements.
  13. I'm personally just amazed that the Spyro Trilogy is commanding over 50GB of space. I don't profess to know much about game development, but it sounds to me as though Toys For Bob maybe haven't been the best at building the game with any real measures to cut the space they've taken with it. I absolutely love the Spyro games, bought them a few times on different platforms, but while full of content they aren't exactly on the same level as numerous open world games in terms of content. My (lack of knowledge led) presumption is this anyway. I guess I just fail to see why Spyro would command such space that some other PS4 gen games wouldn't have, but I've next to no knowledge on that matter. End of the day, the 36GB update is far from ideal for a lot of people... not everybody even in developed countries has great internet. The UK's internet is routinely abysmal and thats regardless of what you pay. However, even as somebody who will need an age to download this update, I'm not put back by this news. I'm just glad after the Crash remake that they moved onto bringing back Spyro too. Honestly more pumped for this game than 99% of current gen stuff. If Toys For Bob have pulled off a great remaster of the Spyro trilogy, then I won't care about the download space once I've downloaded it.
  14. First post on this here thread, thought I'd do a little round-up: Overwatch Love the game, will be playing it long after the platinum. Managed to get all of these without any boosting, didn't even realise I got Rapid Discord until it popped. Love playing as Zenyatta, was just fragging out and boom.... trophy pops. Most of them weren't too bad to get, just very situational. Figured I would have to do some boosting to destroy three teleporters, but was keen to avoid boosting anything the whole way. Fortunately they revamped her recently and this became more doable. Still needed to play against a very nooby Sym as Sombra to get this mind! Great game, thoroughly glad I picked it up a couple of years ago. Got the trophies purely by playing as the characters and learning what works. Once you're proficient enough then most of these trophies aren't too bad. Just need to manage your ultimates and have the opposing team play together (for all the multi-kill etc trophies). Absolute 10/10. Uncharted: Lost Legacy Feel a bit harsh calling this one glorified DLC as it's not a bad game at all. It has enough to stand out on it's own and I think Naughty Dog made the right choice to release it as such. It is definitely just a carbon copy of Uncharted 4 however, and I personally didn't think it was the strongest in the series, Still, a weak Uncharted game is better than 90% of what's out there, a fresh perspective in terms of a new lead character was a good move. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt This really is the game that just kept on giving. Heck knows how many hours I logged on this. I always try to fully play a game, well outside of the trophies on offer. With that said... the completionist in me spent a while wondering when (if ever) I might complete this game! Got the game due to the high acclaim and spent the first 10 hours wondering what the hell people say in this game. But if you persist it really is a slow burner. The attention to detail in terms of the characters and story development is pretty unique, especially with a game of this size. Missions with no good/obvious endings isn't often done well in games... but it is in this one. Very deep combat/inventory system for character development. But even on Death March difficulty, you can still just play as a hack and slasher for the most part if you don't want all that depth. Base game was good, but imo the strongest part of this game is the Blood and Win DLC. Astounding DLC which would be better than most standalone games... and with more content too. All for what... like £6? If you own the game and haven't played Blood and Wine, go spend that $$$!
  15. I really wish I hadn't switched off DM... I had a hard time getting into this, and figured making the start of the game easier would get me into it. Which it has, but after about 5-10 hours or so this game becomes a breeze. Playing on whatever the 2nd hardest difficulty is called, but wish I had persisted with Death March now. Still, may have given up if I hadn't switched, so maybe it was a good idea.
