      Congrats! I wonder if it's same person/s that bought it for me last week.

      There have been a lot of these random acts of kindness lately. Mad Karma points to those responsible! :D

      Congratulations! You among a lot of people received gifts of a premium membership lately :D 

  2. I'm considering buying the Final Fantasy XV Season Pass now to get the Comrades DLC done before the whole thing goes in December, but from the opinion of people who have done it, would I be able to finish it all in time baring in mind that I work 4 days a week?

     

    It seems a shame to not play the game, but I really wanted to play it all or nothing really and I suppose I shouldn't have waited so long but I was just trying to wait until the whole DLC thing had been finished and I could dive into the whole thing at once.

      It should be around 50 hours to complete every trophy. I'm on it myself and this is what mostly everyones says.

  3. You've just said what I was trying to say but I couldn't find the words 😂. I have so much love for Stardew Valley it's unreal. I love that game so much and I have invested so many hours and supported the hell out of that game and I'm really looking forward to the Multiplayer Update as that is just another example of a labor of love. Wandersong is on my list and it will be brought when I've got enough points and I've got the money . I really want Moonlighter as well as that game looks absolutely beautiful on the Switch. I've got my eye on the second one now so I'll be getting that when my backlogs gone down a bit. I like the fact that you have all of these different opportunities as I feel it helps to open up the game a lot more. Anyway, I'm looking forward to diving deeper into it .
  4. You know what, I've got a massive soft spot for any game that's like these as they feel more loved than the typical AAA game, if you get what I mean, and I also love to show my support because their games are always accessible to gamers in lots of different ways. Also, while I have you tagged, I've started HITMAN and it is absolutely brilliant! I've only played the first part and I'm now starting Paris but I'm loving it so far! The characters are amazingly realistic and I love the different level designs.
  5. Platinum #10: Heartbeat Unlock Every Trophy - Enjoyment: 10/10 Well I've finally reached my first Milestone on my new account and I'm proud to say that it is Celeste. Celeste is a story about a young girl named Madeline who embarks on a journey of self-discovery and self-preservation, by attempting to climb the wondrous Mount Celeste. I've got to admit that when I first started it and played the first couple of chapters, I was rather sceptical of the game as I thought it seemed a bit boring. But as soon as I got further into it and saw the struggles and conflict within Madeline's life, and how much her story and emotional struggle relates to my own, I found myself not wanting to put my controller down and I was constantly feeling more and more accomplished the more she climbed and the more she tackled the challenges she faced. I'm proud to say that I didn't use Assist Mode to complete the story, but I've got to admit, I was tempted to. But the fact that I didn't made me feel like I myself had accomplished something as well which made me feel happy. I did, however, use Assist Mode for the Strawberries and the B/C-Sides as I felt that, because these didn't enhance the story anymore and with the way that the story ended, it sort of felt fitting to use the Assist Mode. Celeste made me think so much about my own life and how I have been struggling a lot this year, but also it has made me realise that, however tough things may get, you can always get through your troubles and come out on the other end stronger, and for this reason, I have made Celeste my 10th Platinum and First Milestone. Thank you Celeste! Platinum #11: Hip Hop Hero Unlock all other Trophies! You Gotta Believe! - Enjoyment: 10/10 And Platinum #11 goes to PaRappa The Rapper Remastered! I don't know if anyone remembers the old PlayStation Magazines you could get from the newsagents that had the little Demo Discs inside that had all small or big demos of the latest games that were coming out in the coming weeks. Well I got one when I was about 10 or 11, and to my surprise a Demo Disc was inside and guess what it had on it, PaRappa The Rapper! Man, I played the hell out of that Demo Disc and of PaRappa and yes, it was only ever the first level, but I absolutely loved the bones of this game. But I never did get the full game so when I saw it in the Under £4 sale this week and I had a spare £3.89, I had to jump at the chance to get it! I literally steamed through the game today and got the platinum along with my Fastest Platinum! I'd definitely recommend this game to anyone who asked!
  6. Finished a couple of games and reached a Milestone! Platinum #10: - Enjoyment: 10/10 - Platinum in 1 Week and 16 Hours - Brought for £7.99 Well I've finally reached my first Milestone on my new account and I'm proud to say that it is Celeste. Celeste is a story about a young girl named Madeline who embarks on a journey of self-discovery and self-preservation, by attempting to climb the wondrous Mount Celeste. I've got to admit that when I first started it and played the first couple of chapters, I was rather sceptical of the game as I thought it seemed a bit boring. But as soon as I got further into it and saw the struggles and conflict within Madeline's life, and how much her story and emotional struggle relates to my own, I found myself not wanting to put my controller down and I was constantly feeling more and more accomplished the more she climbed and the more she tackled the challenges she faced.

I literally steamed through the game today and got the platinum along with my Fastest Platinum! I'd definitely recommend this game to anyone who asked! So with those, I'm now up to 2 points and I've updated my Original Post to reflect it.
  7. Finally finished the story of Celeste! I finished the story with 2107 Deaths, 53 Strawberries and 3 Cassettes collected which isn't bad considering how bad I have been at this game. I was really tempted to use Assist Mode at one point to help me finish the story, but I'm proud that I didn't as I feel like I've experienced Madeline's emotional and physical struggle due to the difficulty of the game. Now I'm going to use Assist Mode to get the rest of the Strawberries etc, as I feel this is fitting with how Madeline's story ended.

     

    Also making this my 10th Platinum/Milestone Platinum as it relates to me on such a big level, especially with what's happened to me this year, so I'm looking forward to making it my 10th! :D

    1. Agent 47

      Agent 47

      Such a great game. I think I ended on twelve hundred and something deaths but I had less strawberries.

       

      Do you have a Switch? I forgot. I played Celeste on there, and last week I finished The Messenger, also an amazing platformer though one with more action.

    2. AshestoAshes28

      AshestoAshes28

      @Agent 47, I do have a Switch and when Celeste goes on sale again on there, I'll be double dipping which I don't normally do, but I'll make an exception for Celeste :). I've also been looking at The Messenger as well and it's been on my wish list for a while. 

       

      Any other games like Celeste on the Switch that you know of? The Switch kind of seems like the better place to get these types of games, if you get what I mean.

    3. Agent 47

      Agent 47

      If you mean "the Switch can handle Celeste type graphics as well as the PS4, and the Switch has the benefit of portability" then I get exactly what you mean. Also, with these bit type graphics, I think it's better to watch on a smaller screen.

       

      With games "like" Celeste, are you looking for the emotional story, or the no-mistakes-allowed platforming? I've got a huge list of games I've played and I play a lot of platformers :)

       

      The Messenger is at the top of my recommend list. Great action platformer and the discussions with the Shopkeeper are insanely funny. If it's platforming you want, Shovel Knight is also a definitive recommend. But Celeste is probably the hardest, which is why it has save states at the end of every screen.

  8. Platinum #9: - Brought for £5.00 - Platinum in 1 Day and 1 Hour - Enjoyment 10/10 So I thought that I should play something to reflect it being Halloween and naturally SAW came to mind. This is the bloodiest, goriest and nastiest tribute to the film franchise and if I'm honest, it's absolutely great! The gameplay can be a little wonky sometimes, but it is a very old PS3 game, so you can expect it to be honest. The characters are great, the environments are good and I had many a jump-scare when it came to me running into a Shotgun Tripwire and getting my head blown off. If your looking for a good, easy and scary platinum for your collection, then I'd definitely recommend SAW for your choice! I've been ill for the past few days so I had a few days off from work, which meant that I could get sucked into Celeste! This game is amazing! I mean, don't get me wrong, I didn't reckon much to it at first, but as I went through it and started to get into the story and get behind Madeline, I realised how much of a gem it actually is. I've just finished the story and can now go through it and get the rest of the trophies. This is going to be my first Milestone trophy and I'm really glad I chose this to be it. On another note, I brought PaRappa The Rapper Remastered yesterday which takes me down to 0. I managed to get it for £3.29 and I had a spare £3.89 so I thought why not. I also have completed one of the DLC for Dead Rising 4 called Frank Rising. I've got the admit, this was quite a fun and interesting DLC to play through but I could have saved myself a lot of frustration but not starting the Blackest Friday difficulty straight way but you win some, you loose some ! Also updated my Original Post to reflect this.
  9. Okay, now I have a bit of time I'm going to do my update for the games I've done since my last update! Platinum #5: The Adventure Pals Brought for £11.99 Platinum in 1 Week and 1 Day Rating: 11/10 The Adventure Pals is an epic tale of a small boys quest, aided by his best friend Sparkles the Giraffe and your pet Rock, to save his father and all adults from being turned into Hotdogs by the infamous Mr B! Along the way, you make a large and quirky amount of new friends including, but not limited to, a fashion loving whale, a cat that loves to eat all of your hard earned Cupcakes and even fight bosses such as a giant tree that can only be damaged when it drops it's 'branches' to reveal it's heart underwear 😂! Everything about this game is an absolute blast and a joy to play! Even the Collectables are amazingly fun to collect as you have a Sticker Book to fill, which took me right back to my primary school days when I would stand a trade my stickers in the playground, to having to collect Cupcakes for a cat that really should be watching it's waste-line a little more. All in all, The Adventure Pals is an amazing little indie game that everyone who is looking for a light and cute relief from other games should definitely look into playing! Played on PS4 Platinum #6: Lone Survivor: Director's Cut Brought for £2.99 Platinum in 2 Days and 22 Hours Rating: 10/10 Lone Survivor tells the story of You, a nameless survivor who wakes up in an apartment determined to escape whatever nightmare he is trapped in. I can't really say much about Lone Survivor without spoiling it for everyone, so I won't, but what I can say is that it is a very interesting, disturbing and a greatly detailed and imaginative horror game that everyone should play and as it's always in some sort of sale, you really have no excuse ! Played on PS4 Platinum #7: Claire: Director's Cut Brought for £3.99 Platinum in 18 Hours and 33 Minutes Rating: 8/10 Claire tells the story of a young woman, named Claire , who becomes trapped in a monster filled alternative reality of her own life and memories, and must escape in order to survive. Claire is a perfect game for anyone who loves 2D survival horror games that have an interesting story-line and a scare filled environment. I did really like this game, but for me, after playing Lone Survivor, there was really no beating it as it just seemed to me like it wasn't as detailed or big compared to Lone Survivor. That, on top of the numerous amounts of glitches I experienced, made playing through and platting this game a bit of a nightmare on it's own. I'd only recommend it if your not to fussed about restarting glitches and you want a relatively quick platinum. Played on PS4 100% #1: The Park Brought for £2.00 100% in 2 Hours and 41 Minutes Rating: 5/10 Welcome to The Park, a horror game set in an amusement park that tells the story of Lorraine, a single mother whose child Callum goes 'missing' at the amusement park they visit every year. The Park is actually quite a solid game in terms of story, game play and exploration, although this can seem quite linear at times especially towards the end of the game. I gave this a 5/10 because, for me, The Park is just to short and I would have loved to see more of it and more of the story of Lorraine and Callum because the ending left me wanting more and also left me with a ton of questions. Played on PS4 Platinum #8: L.A. Cops Brought for £3.00 Platinum in 2 Days and 21 Hours Rating: 6/10 It's the 1970's, where big hair and even bigger mustaches ruled and the cops were about as professional and law abiding as that burglar running away from that jewellers. L.A. Cops tells the story of a group of cops stationed in L.A. who come up against corruption, terrorism and extremely bad hair. L.A. Cops is a solid game with plenty of solid game-play and characters to keep you busy, but only if you play the game once. If your going for the platinum, then you'll have to play each level 3 times in order to complete all of the difficulties, as the don't stack. This isn't necessarily a bad thing as Nightmare Mode can actually be quite fun but it does mean that the game can become VERY repetitive quite quickly, but is also very simple at the same time. I'd recommend it if you wanted to do a simple platinum but apart from that, I'd recommend you don't go for the trophies as the amount of playthroughs will drive you insane. Played on PS4 So that's my big update! I've updated my Original Post to reflect these platinum's and I've got to say, it's really great to see that progress that you make in games set out like our posts are! As for my next game, I've started Dead Rising 4 on the Xbox One and I've got to say, it's a ton of fun!
  10. Thanks! I've added you. Mines AshesToAshes97 (I know original right🤔😂)
  11. That is a coincidence! I have played it before but that was a VERY long time ago so I can't remember anything about it so if you look at it like that, it will be my first playthrough . I see that quite a lot these days as well. I played a game the other week, I think it was Mafia 2 and I was stunned when I looked at when it came out at how great it looks! It's the same with the Tomb Raider Trilogy as well, I remember that looked quite great for its age. By the way, I hope you don't mind me asking, but would you like to add me on Xbox as I could have some games that I could help you with and it would be nice to have a friendly face on there from here as there aren't many Xbox players on here.
  12. Hey! It's great to see you back! I'm sorry to hear about your job, they obviously don't know what they're supposed to be doing! Anyway, I've been a busy beaver with the games I've done. I've done 5 games which brings my total of games completed up to 8 (I think) which brings my points back to 2! I'm now on the Xbox for a bit so I think I'm going to dig into Dead Rising 4, Alan Wake and maybe a bit of Impact Winter . I'll do a big update tomorrow as I'm shattered from a 12 hour shift today.
  13. Been really into gaming again these past few weeks and I've even bagged myself a few platinums along the way;

     

    #5 - The Adventure Pals

    #6 - Lone Survivor

    #7 - Claire

    #8 - L.A. Cops

    100% - The Park

     

    I know there only small quick games, but I just wanted to clear some simple games from the backlog before I move onto the numerous RPGS I have on my shelf!😃

      I hated Claire and Lone Survivor... but survival horror isn't my thing anyway but congrats :) I spent a month getting the plat on Metal Gear Rising, it is nice just to chill and get some easy plats done :)

    3. AshestoAshes28

      AshestoAshes28

      @ChristIllusion12, thank you! :) I've been known to do that with a few games before too so I definitely agree that it's nice to get some easy plats done! I find there great fillers for when you can't decide what to play...so they fit with me quite well most of the time considering how indecisive I am 😂🤔

    4. ChristIllusion12

      ChristIllusion12

      @AshestoAshes28 I just turn to the easy ones when I can't stomach to face another difficult one, like at the minute I've decided to do some easy ones before I go back and finish off Max Payne 3 but yeah, short easy platinums what you can knock out in an afternoon or so are fun to do.. I like it when I have those kind of days and I earn like 30 trophies in a single day xD 

  14. So I brought The Long Dark a few weeks ago and started it up last night, only to find that Episodes 3-5 aren't finished yet and I've just read online that Episodes 1-2 are going to be completely overhauled and will be different again when Episode 3 comes out in December! Now I kind of feel like I've started it for nothing really and should have just waited, so I'm going to wait until December to play it.

     

    Now I'm back to the deciding what to play...again. Can you help me please, otherwise I'll spend four days trying to decide what to play 😂Here's my thoughts/list;

     

    Horizon: Zero Dawn

    Final Fantasy XV

    Celeste

    Tomb Raider

      Celeste is awesome if you like platformers.  No combat in the game really, just pure platforming challenges and a surprisingly quirky/touching story.  Since I love platformers, once I got my hands on it I had a hard time putting it down.  I can't speak to the platinum (I played Celeste on PC) but it's a pretty quick game too if you're just playing through the story... barring any difficulty spikes you run into.  It's pretty challenging at times.

    3. DamagingRob

      DamagingRob

      Another vote for Horizon. A really beautiful game. Although, my inner fanboy wants me to say Tomb Raider.

    4. AshestoAshes28

      AshestoAshes28

      Thank you guys! I think I'll be starting Horizon Zero Dawn when I've finished Claire! I've got my Collectors Guide ready and raring to go!

  15. Update! I've brought a couple of new games this week! I went and brought The Long Dark instead of Shadow of the Tomb Raider as I haven't had time to play the other Tomb Raider games yet so I want to do those first. Also The Long Dark looks like a sort of game I'd really enjoy and I kind of fancy being lost in a post-apocalyptic snowy landscape while being constantly worried about freezing to death and taking four days to figure out how to build a fire 😂😏! I know I have it on XB1 in digital form, but I'm a sucker for a great little retail edition of a game! Plus it includes a lovely little Field Journal and a code for the Soundtrack! Anyway, here's a video for you all to watch if you haven't the foggiest idea of what The Long Dark is. The second game I brought is STAY, which only just came out the other day. I was originally going to get this on the PS4, but it's quite cheaper on the Switch so I got it on there instead. This is what the description of STAY is on the store; Here's a trailer for you: Anyway, these purchases put me down to -3 points, but that's okay as I need an incentive to work extra hard to redeem myself and also start to earn my Christmas List...which is probably going to take me FOREVER, but heyho, BRING IT ON!!!
