  1. So considering I haven't played on the PS4 for a while and am clearing the games I already have, I'm kind of wondering what I may have missed out on 🤔.

    I have my eye on Judgement, Immortals Fenyx Rising and maybe Spider Man, but I feel like I may have missed more so does anyone have any recommendations? I'm open to trying new things and love most things 🙂

      Hitman 3 came out and finished off that trilogy nicely

    3. StrickenBiged


      Immortals is fun, I will get back to and finish that one off myself. Spider-Man is great, but if you were planning on getting a PS5 in due course then I'd hold off and play it there (as part of the Miles Morales ultimate edition) as 60FPS is transformational to the gameplay experience IMO. Same goes for Ghost of Tsushima - its so much more playable with 60FPS. 

    4. AshestoAshes28


      Thank you everyone, I've heard very good things about Ghost of Tsushima so that maybe a good option. I'm on the fence about getting a PS5 if I'm honest. At the minute, it doesn't hold much appeal or justification for me to buy one, none of the games really pop out at me, but that may change before Christmas maybe. Hoping Sony pulls some things out the bag because this year is looking empty.

  2. Quite pleased I've managed to beat the Farm and Jungle areas in Robinson: The Journey this afternoon. Considering that I couldn't play 30 minutes of this a couple of weeks ago without getting very sick, to now being able to play for a couple of hours is a great feeling! 🥳🥳


    Also reached 1500 trophies! A small number I know, but I'm happy with the progress I'm making with my profile lately! Quite an ironic on for the milestone 🤣, I always seem to catch some good ones for the milestones 😜

  3. Platinum #28: Plague Inc: Evolved🏆🎮



    Quite enjoyed this one and I'm the 6th fastest achiever on the leaderboard 🙌🏻, so I'll take that as a win 🤣🙌🏻.

      Thank you everyone 😊!

    4. MaximumOverdrive


      Well done! 💯

  4. Haven't really played any big games for a while as I've had a sudden urge to clean up some of my smaller games in my backlog.

    Quite happy that I've managed to clear four of them so far, and now my storage space is getting bigger, I can start some of the bigger games soon!🙌🏻🥳

    1. MidnightDragon


      Nice. I spent most of February backlog cleaning.

  5. Took a look at this new Indies Sale and have a few things in my basket but can't decide 😂


    What's everyone's opinions on Ashen and Spiritfarer? Which would you recommend as I can only get one. Or if there is something else anyone would recommend, I'm getting back into the PlayStation again but don't want to play my old stuff 😂

      Spiritfarer is wonderful, I highly recommend it.  It was one of my top games I played last year ^_^

    3. IntroPhenom


      Great sale, I'd say.  My list of desired titles is over a dozen, and it is not comprehensive, since I ignored anything not heavily discounted, out of consideration for my backlog.  Spiritfarer didn't make the cut, but I'll agree it looks and sounds like a winner.

    4. AshestoAshes28


      Thank you everyone, looks like I'll be getting Spiritfarer!🥳 Can't wait to try this out, and those trophy pictures look lovely🙌🏻

  6. Anyone on here played Greedfall? I'm looking to buy it but would love some opinions before I do 😉

    1. XchocomanX


      This might help you. It helped me to decide 


    2. MomentsInTime


      I played it on Xbox, it was a really fun and interesting open world game. Story was interesting and held me, but there's a lot of unnecessary backtracking I thought. The flow gets bogged down a bit by it, but there's plenty to explore, the campion stuff is competent and good romance options. Overall I thought it was worth playing, tho it could have done better in its pacing. 

  7. Platinum #22 and #23 go to The Sims 4 and The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt + DLC! Finally finished these games off as part of my mission to clean up my profile a little, and I've got to admit, it does look a little better now.


    Definitely give both games a go if your on the fence, as both are worth a lot of your time! I've easily spent hours and hours on Sims alone! I have never played a Witcher game before, but I'm glad I did as I really discovered something new and refreshing and is absolutely visually stunning!

      Thank you everyone!

      @ferginator88, it's definitely one of those games that I didn't think I'd enjoy but it's now one of my favourites! Control is next on my list and I've got Horizon Zero Dawn, buuuut I haven't even looked at it yet and I've had it at least a year, maybe more 😂

    3. ShonenCat


      Congratz! 🎂

    4. ferginator88


      @AshestoAshes28 that is the burden of the trophy hunter. Half a dozen amazing games we bought on sale that we haven't played after years of owning them! 😄

  8. Well that's my night shift done, so now I'm going for a quick nap and then it's game time!😎

  9. After not playing on the PlayStation for so long, I can't remember who anyone is anymore on my friends list as most of them have changed their names 😂


    Might be time to clear some out 🤔😂

    1. Astray404


      Wish they could add some tag or "rename" features... I'm always confused regarding those identity-things 😂

    2. AshestoAshes28


      That would be amazing! And I'm glad I'm not the only one 😂

    3. MidnightDragon


      You could also ask who they are.

  10. Thought it was time to dust off the old PlayStation and try and finally get done some of this backlog that I've been buying but not playing 😂, so hey everyone, how are you all 🥳! 

    On the topic of backlogs, are there still any events on here that allow both PlayStation games and other console games to be apart of it? Asking for an Animal Crossing addict 😂🤔

  11. Hey! I finally joined Twitter after a bit of arm twisting from @TheLoneliestPanda😂. Feel free to give me a follow if you want to see a mass of screenshots, gaming by the dozen and loads of indie bands😂.

    1. TheLoneliestPanda


      It was NOT easy to convince her!

  12. It's been such a long time since I last logged in here and spoken to anyone in a long time either, this was both through personal choice and because I needed time to process everything that had happened in my life in such a short space of time. I've been through so much change and loss through the last year and it just all got too much for me. 

    A year on and now I feel happier in myself and happier with my life as I got a new, less stressful job and things seem better at home. Now I feel like I can be happy gaming again and actually feel good trophy hunting again 😁. Writing this, I feel happy to be coming back to this site and to the friends I haven't chatted to for a long time!

    Now I just need a Platinum to stamp my return to trophy hunting 😂!

      @Sifferino, thank you! It's great you meet you and I hope your having a blast on these forums! 😁


      @Galactic Hyper Balls, thank you! I never knew how much being a human sucks until this time last year but I feel stronger for getting through it, if you get me. 

      Got my sword ready and some games lined up! Get ready to slay!😂


      @MidnightDragon, hey thank you! How have you been? I'm really sorry I haven't messaged for a long time. How's the job hunting going? :) 

    3. MidnightDragon


      Slow, but have something to keep me occupied for now.

    4. MaximumOverdrive


      Welcome back! Glad to see you're doing okay and that you have returned. :) 

  13. Man, I haven't posted on here for a while and look at that, a new year came! Isn't that funny. Anyway, I seem to have become rather lost with gaming at the minute what with everything that has happened over the past few months. I really want to get back into trophy hunting to try and get back some normality to my life, but when I try it just sort of seems strange, which really upsets me as it's always been something I enjoy. I feel like I don't have time to game anymore so what's the point in doing it and I feel like I should be rushing through games when I do play them so I feel like I've actually played something, which I know is wrong. 


    I don't really know what to do, as gaming is a massive part of my life and I really want to get back into loving it again. Perhaps I should go back to a favourite series of mine such as Tomb Raider, Sims, Kingdom Hearts or Stardew Valley etc. I just don't know...


    I'm really sorry for the big rant, but I just feel like I needed to get this off my chest a little and also to chat to some gamers who may understand what I'm feeling/could help me.

      @MidnightDragon, yeah Sims is definitely a great game. I could go back and build a family home 🤔

    4. mecharobot


      Switch is a good option, but also there is nothing stopping people from playing games they already platted, especially with the ridiculously low plat requirements some games have. Did some Peach Beach Splash multiplayer on new years eve with the community and it was good fun to beat modes I did not have chance to do before, even got some new stuff from it. In some cases, the trophies might be a good end goal, but I've found that in others they are the opposite. And I'm not talking about something like grinding, I'm talking about trophies or guides completely omitting entire gameplay modes because they're not necessary, even though they could be arguably very lucrative like doing FoBs in MGSV Phantom Pain.

  14. It looks like Santas been early this year! To the lovely person who has gifted me a Lifetime Premium Membership, thank you so much! It really means a lot and It was such a lovely surprise to see when I logged in! :dance:^_^

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

    3. gruffiiti


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

    4. MaximumOverdrive


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

  15. 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.

    1. Savyna


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

  16. 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. The Shopkeeper

      The Shopkeeper

      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


      @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. The Shopkeeper

      The Shopkeeper

      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.

  17. 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


      @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 they fit with me quite well most of the time considering how indecisive I am 😂🤔

    4. 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 

  18. 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


    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


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

    4. 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!

  19. I started Mafia 3 yesterday and I'm sat playing it now, and I've got to say, I'm not feeling it today. It's not the game, it's just lately I feel a little lost when it comes to deciding what to play and then sticking with it, so I think I need to go back to an oldie but a goodie sort of game that I always go to when I feel like this. So I think I'm going to fire up the Xbox One and chuck in State of Decay as I can get absolutely lost in that game, go back to it a lot and it may even give me my gaming mojo back 😁!

      After going outside into the sunshine, I'll just play a favorite game, even one I've beat before.  That is what gaming is all about, isn't it?  Having fun.  I have some great games that I know I need to be in the right frame of mind to start and stay with them.  

    3. PermaFox


      @AshestoAshes28  BTW, how did you like Mafia 3?  I haven't started it yet but would like to hear your thoughts.

    4. AshestoAshes28


      @Bos10George, @Spawn, and @PermaFox, thank everyone! :) I think I just need to forget about trophy/achievement hunting for a while as I work 3 days a week so it's like my mind is thinking, 'you've got to make the most of this time off before you go back to work' but then I'm so indecisive about what to play or I'm so hung up on getting the trophies/achievements for the game that I waste my time and don't get any games done in the process. So I think I'm going to take @Spawn's advice and turn of the notifications and just play to play if you get what I mean!


      On another note, State of Decay is making me feel better, but I think I'll need to get the big guns out (Stardew Valley/Harvest Moon :P) at some point over the next few days haha!

      @PermaFox, sorry your extra reply only just loaded when I hit reply on the big reply above. Mafia 3 is a pretty great game, but it can get pretty repetitive when it comes to gameplay and actual story as well to be honest. But I'd still recommend it to you as it is a good game overall. :) 

  20. Platinum #4: Mafia 2! What a masterpiece of a game, but it's a real shame that they made those DLCS as they are shocking, which I don't normally say about games, but there you go.


    Onto something new now, so I think I might start Mafia 3 now so I can catch up with Vito! 😁

      Excellent work, congrats! 👍

      @PooPooBlast, yeah I get what you mean, I've played it on an old account :). And I also love a little bit of Vito, so I'll be playing all his cutscenes :).

      @DamagingRob, thank you! :) 

      @Honor_Hand, thank you! :D

  21. Got my first proper paycheck this morning, so to mark the occasion and to have something incredibly special and beautiful, I went and brought these beauties from Fangamer!😍💚 


  22. Hey! Just wanted to say thank you for your video review/gameplay of The Adventure Pals! I was on the fence about getting this, but after watching your video and seeing how cute it is, I brought it immediately! Keep up the great work with the videos! 😁

    1. cronocyde


      That's really nice of you, thank you for contacting me! 🙂 Really means a lot that my videos are helping others and that it brings more attention and coverage on the game itself. I recently platinum the game and it was a great experience for sure, especially in co-op. Let me know if you have any questions and thank you again for contacting me. Literally made my day 😬

    2. AshestoAshes28


      No problem! I'm glad that you did the video to be honest as I hadn't heard of it before seeing it on here and I love these little indie games, but most importantly, I love to support them! I can't wait to play it so I'll let you know when I've started it :D! I'm happy that I've made your day!

    3. cronocyde


      Appreciate the response my friend, thanks a lot! Let me know what you think of the game! 🙂

  23. Going to start working on my PS3 backlog now and first up is a classic, Mafia 2! 😃 Absolutely love this game and it's been sooo long since I last played it, so I'm excited to get back into it!

  24. And with the completion of Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, I've now completed the whole N.Sane Trilogy! 😁 What a fantastic set of games! I loved playing these games (stupid Stormy Ascent level 😒) and I'm happy to have them on my profile, proudly displayed! Now I've just got to decide what to play next...🤔



  25. [Crash Bandicoot 2] I've finally finished / achieved all of the Gold Relics for every level! 😁 They actually weren't as bad as I thought they would be and they were definitely not as bad as the Crash Bandicoot 1 Relics! Just got tomorrow at work and then I've got three days to finish off the Gems, Secret Exits and to be crushed by an ice cube and then I'll have my platinum!😆
