  1. So pretty interesting to anyone who didn't know (I didn't until recently), but: Firewalk from Life is Strange Before The Storm are actually a pretty awesome little punk band from Wales called Pretty Viscous. Another Pretty Awesome Track:
  2. First bought a PS4 this year, so I guess this is just my first year in review 😊 426 130 οΏΌ 47 12 2018 was a fairly productive year with gaming. Was very busy with work and family so I take what I can get when it comes to gaming time 😁 Anyways: Best Games - Titanfall 2 - Horizon Zero Dawn - BioShock - Spider-Man Honourable Mentions: Modern Warfare Remastered, Life is Strange, Life is Strange Before The Storm and RIME. Dishonourable Mention: - Jak II Its not so much that it's a bad game, I wouldn't know because I used debug mode to quick pop the platinum. Hence why it's a dishonorable mention, because I'm sure it's a great game that deserves a proper play through. At the time I only had one plat and I wanted a quick boost. Everything else I played last year, I enjoyed. But then again, I didn't play that many games πŸ˜‚ Goals for this year: Aiming for 30 That will be an increase over this year's 12 so bring it on!!
  3. #12 - Horizon Zero Dawn Difficulty: 3/10 Enjoyment: 8/10 Really did enjoy this one over the Christmas period. Looked amazing on my 4k OLED and the gameplay was pretty solid. Kind of reminds me of the Arkham games (bare with me); the combat is as simple as you need it to be, yet the depth is there. You could probably get through the game on the lowest difficulty just spamming arrows and not putting too much thought into it. Or you can play on a harder difficulty and play a far more tactical game, utilising more weapons and ammo types. The depth is there which is highly rewarding for those who seek a slightly more challenging experience. Overall I'd give this game a rock solid 8/10 to match my enjoyment factor. The story is good, the game is beautiful and only a few things hold it back from a higher score imo. The characters seem a bit robotic/emotionless at times, especially during the cut scenes and the pacing was slightly off throughout parts, again just my opinion. Also, I enjoyed The Frozen Wilds DLC more than the main game! The new enemies are awesome and the snowy setting is gorgeous! I really enjoyed learning about the Banuk. I just need to go back and do an Ultra Hard play through to mop up. Will likely polish off a couple games that I got for Christmas and then jump back in. Really looking forward to it!!
  4. little Nightmares - Got the 100%. Considering there isn't a platinum, I guess this won't count. But, neither will my other selections lol. Anyways, this game; I found myself completely immersed in its creepy but beautiful little world and also found myself continuosly watching and reading content to do with the game long after completion. OlliOlli - Played it on xbox. Rad soundtrack and I just seem to love that "in the zone" going for high scores kind of gameplay loop. So addictive and fun! Cuphead - Played it on xbox. Stupidly gorgeous art style and music. Ridiculously tight and solid gameplay. Very talented developers. I've found myself really craving these kind of games recently. I feel like they offer so much bang for your buck; if you're looking in the right places. Really looking forward to picking up a few more games that would make these kind of threads, top of my list are games like Hollow Knight, Dead Cells and Dust: An Elysian Tale.
  5. As the title says... So I've just defeated the Deathbringer at the end of the quest: The Grave Hoard. That fight levelled me up to a whopping level 13 πŸ˜‚... I think I may need to grind somewhere to get my level up? Any recommendations on a good location or method to grind? I've been rushing through this game and no doubt have missed a lot. I haven't had much time to play the last week or so, so I have just been focusing on the main questlines and pretty much ignoring everything else. I'm not too familiar with this kind of game (RPG I think?) and upon having a quick Google it looks like I should of done some side stuff to level up along the way. The game is fairly manageable still, I'm only playing it on normal but I'm assuming it's going to keep getting harder if I don't level up! Thanks in advance for any replies!
  6. Yeah it's my bad on that one. I'm not really used to RPG style games so I've really just focused on the main quests, intending to get stuck into the side content afterwards. The lack of time has just ended up with me not noticing how much have missed until now (been playing 45 minutes to 2hr burst here and there). I didn't even think I was very far into the game but it seems I'm over half way through the main questline? Going to slow down and work through the side content for a while now. Should get some good game time in over the weekend!
  7. Awesome! Thanks for the posts.Will go to the hunting grounds a grind up for a few levels, then hit the side quests before continuing the main story! πŸ‘
  8. Started playing Spyro on X1. Kind of regret it because the achievement list is all three games compiled into one. Even though I'm not a completionist, I have some OCD tendencies and I feel compelled to complete the whole thing at once.. If I had of fired this bad boi up on PlayStation; I could of platted Spyro 1 and then deleted the other two off my trophy list until I fancied playing them! Nothing wrong with the collection at all, it's awesome... Just sooo much I want to play at the moment that it would of been nice to play other games in-between.
  9. Tune is πŸ”₯
  10. Platinum #8 Difficulty: 4/10 Enjoyment: 7/10 First FIFA game in years. Found it quite enjoyable for the most part, only downside is that the journey feels quite repetitive but it is a repetitive game by nature. The cut scenes were well executed with some pretty good voice acting. Overall a solid game! Looking forward to 19!
  11. I've trained mostly for strength over the years but I don't compete. I am a strength and conditioning coach though buddy πŸ‘
  12. Reading through all of these replies, I think it's fair to say that there are alot of assumptions being made on how people enjoy or don't enjoy their gaming habit's. My personal opinion is this: The perfect profile is the one that reflects your own individuall gaming tastes. Not what you think looks the best to a bunch of people that you've likely never met. Not any specific stat, be it completion percentage, UR count or overall average rarity etc. Just straight up, a list of games which showcase what you wanted to play and when you wanted to play it. Your completion on each title will likely be telling of how much you enjoyed it. There is nothing cool about forcing yourself to finish any trophy list if you are seriously not into the game, whether it be super easy or super hard. Just my thoughts. Cool topic OP. πŸ‘Š
  13. Voted Cross
  14. Haven't played a FIFA game in a while!
  15. RIME - It was free with ps+ Absolutely fantastic game!
  16. Without a doubt: Little Nightmares Also worth a mention: What Remains of Edith Finch Firewatch Sonic Mania
  17. Little Nightmares πŸ’―% Such an awesome little game!
  18. I can honestly say that I'm not sure these days which is the problem; the people (in this case Naughty Dog) who put these controversial scenes out there on the big screen, or the reaction to them from the media. I watched the trailor for The Last of Us Part II and thought it looked awesome. When the two girls kissed I couldn't believe how visually stunning the game looked and how on point the animations were/are. I didn't really think much of it in terms of two girls kissing, it kinda didn't even stick in my mind... Until it's all over the internet the next day, being blown way out of proportion. I'm just saying that I think a large portion of gamers are like me and don't read much into the controversy when it comes to this stuff, it's just that the internet and reach of the media these days is really, really fucking long and loud. Sidenote: I love Robin's Chanel and have followed him for years, top dude and content creator. Also, can't wait for the game, it's a day one!🀘
  19. Good shout! I didn't think of that. Toogie helped me reorganize my categories, so I think I'm all set now. Thanks though πŸ‘ Roll on June 1st πŸ†πŸ†πŸ‘Œ
  20. Haha, it's all good dude. No problem, I'll shift them about. I'll move God of War to the hiking category as I think I've seen a few others put it there. πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Thanks man
  21. I was hoping to fit Little Nightmares into the: Make Something category as I've put Sleeping Dogs into Ghost Story slot. My justification is that I can't seem to see where else Sleeping Dogs could go and I'd like to finish it and I really want to play Little Nightmares 😊... There is a part in Little Nightmares where you get to make a rope swing out of Sausages? You have to grind the meat and everything πŸ˜‚... If that's not a good fit then I will change it? I'm also going to pick up the DLC for Little Nightmares, so that's no problem. I'm going to go for Life is Strange BTS and Sleeping Dogs first. That way God of War will be my 10th plat. Seriously can't wait! Smashing up ninjas sounds mad fun hahaha πŸ˜‚πŸ‘Œ
  22. So pumped for this one @Toogie53!! Seems I'm definitely not alone, so many signed up already! It's going to be awesome πŸ‘ My game selection: Make Friends: Life is Strange, Before The Storm. Chloe lets in and opens up to Rachel Amber. This is a big deal for Chloe because she fears everyone she has ever cared for, has either left her or fucked her over. The start of a beautiful friendship, or is it more of the same? Who knows... Go Hiking: God of War. I've purposefully avoided any information and all spoilers for this game. Apart from the trailors, I know nothing! This absolutely has to be on my list... I am so excited to start this one! Hang out By The Lake: Little Nightmares.. This game looks awesome! I've wanted to play it for a while and now I have lots of DLC to tuck into on top! It's in this category for reasons unknown to me currently, but under the recommendion of Toogie. Tell a Ghost Story: Sleeping Dogs, Definitive Edition. Now this category was originally where I wanted to place Little Nightmares. There is however some supernatural activity in the Nightmare at North Point DLC, and since this is a game that I actually started in the previous event: Spring Fling, but didn't have the time to complete. I would love to knock this one out during this event, if that's cool?
  23. Done! Honestly didn't think I'd get the games finished in time, even though I've got a bit more time for gaming currently, work this time of year is just mental for me... Now that I'm all wrapped up, I've had the time to sit and reflect on the games I completed for this event... I've got to say: Life is Strange was just incredible! It blew me away, I was so invested in the characters and the story by the end of the game, that I think the whole experience will stick with me long after the fact. A Solid 9/10 from me. The Order 1886 was another surprise hit for me. I'd seen so much negativity about the game, primarily due to its length I believe, but I personally found it very enjoyable and a perfect length for the experience it's trying to deliver. I think it was released too early in this generation, a time where people were starved for content, when the library's for each console (PS4 & X1) were a little bare. Probably the wrong price point also. Β£24.99 or around $30 would have likely been a better choice. Either way, it was awesome! Loved the setting and the gameplay (whilst limited) was fun. Firewatch, I found it to have quite an interesting story. Some of the dialog between Henry and Delilah was absolutely brilliant. Overall though, it was quite slow paced and I found it a bit tedious with all the walking at times. The dialog and the art style made it a worth while play though, for sure. Modern Warfare Remastered, Call of Duty at its finest. Back when they gave a damn about the single player. Challenging and fun, definitely a great completion to go for with an excellent trophy list (imo). Had a blast people! Looking forward to picking out my games for the next one! Hopefully I'll have enough time between now and then to 100% Sleeping Dogs... Apparently I have a slight case of OCD now because it's bugging the sh** out of me that it's not finished πŸ˜‚ Glad to see everyone else is still tearing it up, there's been some huge efforts put in and it's been fun to read through!
  24. I'm in if there is still room! Will post my game choices after wrapping up Firewatch, hopefully this weekend πŸ‘ŒπŸ†
  25. Thank you @Toogie53 for letting me re-enter very late into the event! I'm pumped to jump back in and get through some games! Also just happy that my workload has now balanced out to allow some time to game in general! So, my game selection going forward will look like this: Spring into action: Modern Warfare Remastered (Done) Spring Flowers: Firewatch Spring Forward: Life is Strange Bonus Game: The Order 1886 (Little Big Planet Easter Egg) The games that I've selected are a bit shorter than my original picks, which should give me a good chance at completing them all in time! I will clean up Sleeping Dogs after the event now as that was one of my Original picks. It's awesome to be back and it's been fun catching up with the thread to see that everybody is blasting through their games!
