  1. Requesting a guide for a 1/10 platinum difficulty game that takes well under half an hour to earn the platinum. Riiiight! 🙄🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️
  2. Well, I'll weigh in with my two cents....for what it's worth. I do believe eventually Sony will completely shut down all online functionality, the entirety of the PS3's and Vita's servers. When? I do not know. However, keep this in mind. The last thing Sony wants is a class action lawsuit. To avoid that, they have to give sufficient warning for the closure. Also, they would have to allow for some time to pass from when they shut down the PS3's and Vita's stores and when they unplug those system's entirely i.e. end trophy sync/support, etc. After all, you don't want to have a situation where people are still buying games off of the stores and then tell the public that they have a month or three months to play and platinum or 100% the games they just bought. I would think to avoid such a situation, they would have to do again what they tried to do a year or so ago. Make an announcement that the stores will be closing. This time make the announcement a year in advance and at the same time or within say six months after announce that full online support for the PS3 and Vita will end one full year after the PS3 and Vita stores are closed. This way you are giving people plenty of warning and plenty of time to buy any games they want and platinum/100% them whatever before they pull the plug entirely. Eventually they will pull the plug on them. I just think if they approach it this way, with giving people one to two years notice, they certainly avoid any sort of legal ramifications and no one can say they weren't given a fair amount of time. Just my thought on all this. At any rate, if I had to guess when they might pull the plug completely on both the PS3 and the Vita, I would say in another 3 years or so from now, 2026 or so. Heck, the PS3 will be 20 years old by then. Anyways, that is all.
  3. Two words. NAILED. IT!! Finally, a cinematic adaptation of a video game that is faithful to the source material and spot on!
  4. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (PS4) Far Cry 3: Classic Edition (PS4) Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus (Vita) Senran Kagura: Bon appetít (Vita) Senran Kagura: Estival Versus (Vita) Senran Kagura: Estival Versus (PS4) *No autopop; I did another full playthrough. Senran Kagura: Burst Renewal (PS4) Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash (PS4) GTA V (PS4) Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (PS4) Marsupilami: Hoobadventure (PS4)
  5. Platinum number 72: It's Over 9000 Marsupilami: Hoobadventure 11th and final platinum of the year! Platinum difficulty: 2/10 Time to platinum: I'll guesstimate at 10 to 12 hours give or take. Fun factor: a solid 8 out of 10. I really enjoyed this game. It's a fun, colorful, cartoonish, family game that is great for all ages much like the Lego games in that sense. This also serves as my very first platformer platinum. I am not very good at platformers. Just take a look at my profile. I don't have many on there and the couple that come to mind that I have played (Kung Fu Rabbit and Rayman Origins) I neither completed nor platinumed respectively. I either lack the patience or the skill for these types of games. Regarding Kung Fu Rabbit, it may be more a matter of patience given that it is rated as a 2/10 completion difficulty if my memory serves me correctly. In regards to Rayman Origins, I would say patience and skill. I just could not be assed with "gittin' gud" with every one of that game's confounding levels. Yeah. Pass. This game was just the right level of difficulty for me as far as the platformer genre of games goes which is to say not very difficult at all. There are some challenging areas, but none are too troubling. Overall, this game served as a welcome break from my longer, more difficult platinum hunts in Demon's Souls (PS3) and Persona 4 Golden. I highly recommend this light-hearted, fun and underrated gem to anyone looking for an easier platformer platinum to fill the void between tougher platinum hunts. Happy New Year to all of you! God bless!
  6. Pirates of the Caribbean
  7. Christmas platinum. Number 71. Don't Ruin the Moment. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Difficulty: 3 to 4 out of 10 Fun: a solid 8 out of 10 at least. Time to platinum: 18 hours, 52 minutes according to in-game statistics. I LOOOOOOOVE Uncharted!! And I enjoyed this one every bit as much as every other one! The talk of a "reboot" makes me a little nervous. I would certainly welcome more adventures with Chloe and Nadine! I enjoyed them every bit as much as Nathan and Sully. If you've played any or all of the other Uncharteds, but haven't played this one yet, do yourself the favor and DO PLAY THIS! You won't be disappointed! Merry Christmas, everyone! God bless! 'Nuff said. I did the same with Uncharted: TLL. I finished up the collectible grind yesterday afternoon and saved the 4 easiest trophies for today so I could earn myself a Christmas platinum. Merry Christmas! Enjoy!
  8. I'll post here January 1st.
  9. Well, I love PlayStation's trophy system, but putting trophies/achievements or any kind of reputation system aside, I would say it's a matter of ease, convenience. Plus I am not that tech-savvy. There is also the matter of cost. I know of people who prefer to game on pc and almost all of them speak of spending well over a thousand dollars and in some cases thousands of dollars on their pc rig/set-up what-have-you. I don"t have that kind of money. I'm sure if you have the money to spend then sure, pc is the way to go. I'm happy with my PlayStations (PS3, PS Vita, PS4).
  10. Yes. It is my habit to always save to the cloud after a gaming session. The thing is my backup save for TLOU was glitched as well. Shit happens. Just gotta press on.
  11. I see your point and agree with you, but Bend did do a helluva job with Golden Abyss back in the day. What makes me nervous is the rumor of a so-called 'reboot'. Reboot what? The games and the stories are perfect. The characters are fantastic as they are. As I said in a previous post of mine in this thread, I would love more Chloe and Nadine with maybe a little Sam thrown in a la The Lost Legacy. I would love that! But....that isn't a reboot by definition. If these rumors are true then it sounds as if Sony is redoing i.e. completely overhauling the Uncharted series completely. As others have mentioned here, what could we expect? A new Uncharted reboot with Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg. And with what? Some BS "woke" bent to it to boot. My worst nightmare would be a complete reboot just like that with Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg but with....what? What could we expect nowadays? Pronouns? Hey look. I'm digressing a bit here. Clearly we all just have to wait and see. Hope for the best, I suppose. If Sony does do a full-from-the-ground-up reboot, I will probably be passing. Just as I passed on the less-than-stellar, woke Saints Row reboot. We'll see.
  12. Agreed. That would be amazing!
  13. I LOOOOOOVE Uncharted! And I'm currently working on The Lost Legacy now. Just finished the story earlier today on crushing. As someone else has already said, it was already hinted at in TLL that Chloe and Nadine would team up. I'm lovin' TLL as much as all the other Uncharteds and would welcome more Chloe and Nadine. I do have to say though....the term 'reboot' makes me a little nervous. Maybe it's because we were just recently greeted with the cringey "woke" reboot of Saints Row. If Sony goes that way with Uncharted, Sony can go F themselves. We can all just wait and see at this point. EDIT: Also makes me a little nervous knowing that someone, anyone else other than Naughty Dog will be heading this. Although Golden Abyss was amazing on the Vita so if Bend heads it up and stays as true to form with this as they were with Golden Abyss then that would be fine. Again, just gotta wait and see.
  14. I don't know if this counts. I think it does. And I am really dating myself with this, but waaaay back in the day - back in the 80s, to be exact - when I was a wee lad, it would have been Voltron. I still have the theme song burned into my brain. I'm going back to 1985, '86, '87 or so. Every weekday afternoon after school, that was the "must watch" at the time. Ah yeah. Those were the days. Good times. More recently, I'd say Naruto. But really I don't watch too much anime. I don't have the time. And I've tried to watch every episode of Naruto, but I can't. I got as far as episode....136, 137 of the Shonen Jump era and gave up. Between the Shonen Jump and Shippuden eras, there are about 750 or so episodes. I just can't. I play through the games for the main story arc. Besides that, well, I think that's it. I'm sure I've watched a few others, but nothing else comes to mind right now. So yeah. The first one is Voltron....if that counts. If not then Naruto, I suppose. And I've never read any manga so....🤷‍♂️
  15. I'm a mix of all the options. Although, I try to platinum the games I play that obviously doesn't always happen. I am a mix. I do have an alternate "junk" account, That69Haze, which I will play games on that I don't plan on platinuming/100%ing for various reasons. I play the pinball games on that account because I enjoy pinball from time-to-time, but there's no way I'm adding Pinball FX3 to this, my main profile, and never be able to 100% it or even come close because I'm not interested in buying every pinball table or trying to earn every damn trophy either. Some of which are quite difficult and take a lot of time and practice. Yeah. Not interested. But to pick up and play once in a while for fun and to relax and unwind? Sure. I play the classic arcade games on there as well. Galaga. Ms. Pac-Man. Pac-Man. Etcetera. When it comes to those games could I platinum them? Sure. There are guides and I don't think any of them are super difficult. Challenging maybe, but I don't think they're 8 to 10 difficulty. Growing up in that era - the 80s - arcade games such as those were all about the high score - improving your high score - and what level or round you could reach - improving your game so you can reach higher levels. Basically, they are all about the leaderboard. As such, FOR ME, just my opinion and view, I don't think their the types of games for trophies or to trophy hunt with. Just my opinion. I just don't see getting a platinum in Pac-Man as fun. I read the guides. I know about the "save scumming" method after each level and I know there are videos to follow showing the "perfect" route so you can finish all the levels, etcetera, etcetera. Yeah. That does not sound like fun at all to me. But that's just me. No shade meant to everyone who platinums those games. Good for you. 👍🏻 There are other games too that fit this bill. Black Ops 3 zombies and multiplayer. Warframe. Games I can't be assed going for the platinum/100%. Just not fun for me. Games where the platinum is not obtainable? I'll just skip those games for the most part. Everything else here on my main account I try to platinum (100% at times), but some games I decide I can't be assed after I started them. Wet, Hotline: Miami, Lollipop Chainsaw come to mind. There are also games that I played that I didn't enjoy at all so I never bother to platinum them. Infamous and Final Fantasy X come to mind. Still, 106 games on my profile and I have 70 platinums. Not too shabby, I think.
