  1. Cool tired outdated comment bro
  2. So the Watch Dogs online trophies are far easier than I thought they would be- getting tons of races, trails and hacking opportunities, now if only they'd be nice and stand still so I'd be successful every damn time! And this is the PS3 version I'm talking about, so a good few people are still playing this game, it seems!

      Good to hear! I really enjoyed that game and couldn't understand why a lot of people disliked it. Maybe the fact that I was completely oblivious to the hype around the game helped me appreciate it more.

      The Hackification trophy is a bit annoying. Some people are being absolute G's and letting me do it while others are dicks who lead me on a merry chase then stop and charge at me and shoot. I'll be parking this game once I have the online stuff (probably do the PS4 version too since it's so easy) and coming back much later on. I'm not too far into the game so I'l be fine once I do!

  3. Day One DLC is still a thing? Is it free or needs to be bought? Pretty scummy if it's the latter.
  4. No longer caring about my completion percentage. Need to get the multiplayer trophies for several games out of the way, meaning their single-player portions will probably be left undone for at least a year or two before I eventually get around to it. Gotta get ahead of those inevitable server closures as the countdown to PS5 gets properly underway. My 'Trophies Per Day' count is going to take a serious hit too but there's no point in being anal about all that, gonna be a bigger pain having all these games but with unobtainable platinums! However, I'll be limiting this to no more than an hour per day (unless some sessions are going with decent, dedicated folks) because hey, I gotta have fun with my games as well or else there really is no point at all!

  5. #45- ALONE IN THE DARK: INFERNO (PS3) 100% Complete Enjoyment: 5/10 Difficulty: 3/10 Time Taken: 5 Days, 2 Hours & 3 Minutes (20 Hours in-game) Rarity: 30.49% Uncommon Hardest Trophy: Blazing Roots (Gold)- Burn all roots of evil "I am the Lightbringer... I am the FUCKING UNIVERSE!" I love the old Alone in the Dark games. They practically invented Survival Horror as we came to know it. I even think The New Nightmare on PS1 (and PS2 in Europe) is an overlooked gem. However, this 2008 offering is... well... Let's start with the good stuff. The game's story is interesting, and seems to be set in the same canon as the original trilogy. You play as Edward Carnby, a paranormal investigator who must solve the mystery of the Philosopher's Stone, stop a mad cultist from utilizing its power and try to stop the return of Lucifer. The game mostly takes place in a semi-open world Central Park and sees you going around completing objectives in various episodes. It is presented in a DVD-like format that enables you to actually skip sections. This does, of course, make getting trophies a longer process since you have to complete every segment, though none of the game is particularly challenging, at least not when you're fighting the controls, but more on that in a minute. The inventory and crafting system is very interesting and well-done, seeing you gathering resources to make your own weapons- aside from the handgun- to fight off the various enemies you encounter. Your space is limited so very often it comes down to the choice of taking a medical spray can or an extra molotov. The enemies require you to burn their bodies to completely eradicate them, somewhat similar to the Resident Evil Remake, and to do so you can infuse your bullets with fire and aim for the fissures on their body, or throw a flammable liquid container at them and shoot it to make it explode nearby. The boss battles are few in number and are little more than a more complex encounter- just throw bombs until they die. But now we get to the bad stuff and oh, boy... This game should have spent a lot more time in development. The controls are terrible. You have three modes- third person for exploration, first-person for shooting and then there is driving. None of these are remotely fun to control with. The dialogue is terrible and the hodgepodge of different ideas means the game has no real focus and none of the concepts are fully realised. The ending sucks no matter which of the two choices you make. The final "boss" is lame as all hell and the final task for the platinum trophy sees you burning all the roots of evil that have sprouted around Central Park. This is pure padding as you get nothing for doing so and not even half of them are required to beat the game. I read that the original release on Xbox had a much worse inventory, camera and required you to burn more roots. Even if this version is an improvement, it is a small one at that. The presentation really leaves a lot to be desired, and the episodic-like nature really kills the pacing. This would have worked far better as a straightforward linear game. Also, the trophies are glitched and once or twice I had to backup my save, delete the data, reinstall and download my save again, then repeat the action ingame to finally get the trophy I should have already earned. It isn't a bad game but I couldn't really recommend it to anybody either. At least it got me 50 easy trophies in a relatively short period of time, I was having a very busy week so I needed something very simple.
  6. Platinum #45- Alone in the Dark: Inferno (PS3)...

    Well now here's a game that could have been great if it had had a bit more development time... okay, maybe more than a bit. There are some interesting concepts at play here, with a different style of inventory system and neat crafting mechanics to make different kinds of explosives and makeshift weapons. The story is also somewhat interesting so it's a pity a sequel was never made. But the gameplay itself is janky as all hell. Glad to have this one out of the way for good.

      It's probably a good thing I decided not to play this with my PS Now trial. :P Congrats!

      Nice job! I gave up on that game years ago.

  7. 100% Nelson Tethers: Puzzle Agent (PS3), a nifty little Telltale game, thanks to @AuroraHistoire for bringing it to my attention. Enjoyable, but those

    Spoiler

    little red gnomes

    really freaked me out when they'd just appear out of nowhere! Though I feel it is more suited to mobile and tablets, it's a pity they never brought the sequel to PS3 as well. My quest to complete every possible Telltale game on PlayStation continues (sadly, I never downloaded Poker Night 2 before it got delisted so that one's out) but I have to clear many more games from my backlog along the way! Should plat Alone in the Dark: Infernolater today!

      Thanks! Yeah, I didn't even know about it either until I was told last month!

      Well done! 💯 

  8. Wow it just gets worse Pro-tip: Calling someone "sweetie" over the internet only betrays your immaturity. Not cute or clever.
  9. Oh look, all the exclusives, hilarious /s
  10. I have this game but I've heard it sucks, though the plat is easy enough
  11. Multiplayer has no "staying power" if the servers die in a week when everyone goes back to playing CoD/ Fortnite etc. When servers shut down then a multiplayer component goes completely so it actually has less of a shelf life than single player which can be played as intended forever.
  12. I didn't until about a few weeks ago, when I saw more and more of the game it looked very, very promising. It wasn't enough to warrant a pre-order but if EA don't muck it up then I will absolutely get it at the weekend because I do so very much want to support Respawn and singleplayer Star Wars games
  13. I'm a teacher so I have to be super-organised, so my huge backlog requires that I stick with a game until I finish it otherwise I'm left with a sea of half-finished games that I'll have to start over again when I come back to them so it actually saves time. But occasionally if a game that particularly appeals to me comes out, I'll play it even if I'm in the middle of another.
  14. Borderlands (PS3)- thanks to a friend, I finally got the "And They'll Tell Two Friends" trophy so now I'm pretty much guaranteed the platinum since all I have to do is fight a boss in splitscreen (I assume that will work?) and I will have all the multiplayer trophies. I remember playing this game with friends on Xbox 360 and it was a blast, playing solo is a bit lonelier.

      Hi mate. Yes all other „mp“ trophies can be done in splitscreen. Cheers

  15. Glad I got this out of the way before this tomfoolery. Fail game is fail.
