  1. It comes in physical format, yes
  2. It's an absolute, unequivocal yes from me. Had it gifted to me on Xbox One but I will definitely shell out for it on PS4 now as well. We hardly see this type of game these days. A single-player, immersive experience with no microtransactions and a lot of obvious love and care put into crafting the world, story and gameplay. In the current industry which is flooded with soulless, sterile, corporate AAA garbage releasing buggy and unfinished, this is a breath of fresh air and absolutely worth paying full price to support. It truly is a pity to see how many people be like "erp derp wait for discount lel" which only goes towards the decline of genuine experiences like this
  3. It may help to actually read reviews rather than just look at scores, as I think I lot of people just do. Although certainly not in all cases, reviewers explain their feelings and opinions of a game and from that you can decide yourself whether the game is for you or not. Also bear in mind that most of the time reviewers play a lot more games than the average gamer, so if they're constantly coming across the same old stuff it's gonna affect their rating, just like film reviews. So no, their experiences don't exactly match the average gamer but that isn't their job. There's a common notion that reviewers just give bad reviews to be cool and act superior, but I haven't seen any evidence of this, it just seems to me that people are too sensitive and take offence to any criticism of something they like. Also, many seem to think that scores like 7/10 are "bad" which is utterly ludicrous. This "Us vs Them" mentality is so depressing. Days Gone may be a good game but it certainly doesn't do a whole lot new or better than other game shave done. By the way, the reason it got such middling reviews in the first place was because the review copies were of a pretty broken build that only got patched after general release, so I think their frustrations were fair, though I'd be interested to see what some would think from replaying the game in a more stable state. Also worth mentioning that the critic Metascore is 72 and the Audience score is 8.1 so not exactly a world of difference. So at the end of the day of course you should use your own judgement but I know I'm not gonna shell out full price for a game that is getting generally middling or low scores; I don't have all the money or time in the world to be buying and playing every game in the world, it helps to get a sense of what people who know what they're talking about think of things.
  4. I'm enjoying this season in spite of the numerous issues. I won't sign or anything but if in the unlikely event another one gets made... I'd actually love that!
  5. I have now got every single Plat and 100% (PS3 AND PS4) so please bump me up to Master of Hearts when you have a chance, thanks! 😁
  6. Earning another 30 plats to get 60 by the end of the year would be great. I've been hunting for 8 months and played a lot of long games so my count is a bit lacklustre. So I'm going to try to pick up the slack and try not to resort to too many cheap EZPZ games just to reach that goal!
  7. #30- KINGDOM HEARTS III (PS4) KINGDOM HEARTS III Complete Master Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 2/10 Time Taken: 3 Months, 2 Weeks, 17 Hours (72 hours in-game) Rarity: 3.2% Ultra Rare (PSN) / 25.00% Uncommon (PSNProfiles) Hardest Trophy: Thermosphere (Gold)- Destroy the Schwarzgeist, menace of the Ocean Between May your heart be your guiding key... When I got my PS3 and first embarked upon my trophy hunting adventure, I had one immediate goal: obtain every single Kingdom Hearts platinum trophy before Kingdom Hearts III came out. With a day to spare, I popped Dream Drop Distance and achieved that goal. The day came and I enjoyed every minute of my new quest with Sora, Donald and Goofy. Now I have every plat and 100%. The game is excellent. It is one of the best-looking games I have ever played and the gameplay is phenomenal. The story always took a backseat in the series and this one was no worse than many of the others. It gave me everything I wanted and more. I don't know how anybody could have played this to the end and think it was bad. Not the best, but certainly nowhere near bad. The worlds were more vibrant and alive than any game in the series to date. It's crazy how amazing the environments looked and the game doesn't even have HDR! Many awesome moments and boss fights to be had here as well as some emotional moments and satisfying wrapping up of plot threads. Something I see many people complaining about is that it doesn't conclude the first two numbered games very well. It was never meant to. In fact, this game is the culmination of the series' spin offs, and it rounds those off very well. As seen in the ending and secret movie, this isn't and ending at all, just another piece in the bigger puzzle that is the Kingdom Hearts series. I've been a fan for over a decade and will be first in line to buy and play more when the time comes! The plat itself took me quite a while so people complaining that it is "too short" must have only played the story on easy mode, which in itself still took me 25+ hours so it is not shorter than the other games. Okay, so the side content wasn't as engaging as other games (no Coliseum? What were they thinking?!) but there was still plenty to do. My only major gripe is the fact that given all the work it takes to craft the Ultima Weapon, there's almost nothing to use it on! The "secret" boss is a cakewalk with this keyblade and the formchange. Speaking of which, I loved the new combat mechanics, changing Keyblades and the various forms you can take. Sure, there's no dual wielding or reaction commands but what replaces them keeps things fresh. The only thing I didn't like were the Attraction commands- they felt very out of place but it's a minor complaint. There's also not really a whole lot of challenge as all of these abilities make Sora a tad overpowered despite the fact that he's supposed to have been severely depowered due to the events of Dream Drop Distance- bit of ludonarrative dissonance, what? All in all, I really liked Kingdom Hearts III and I look forward to the DLC. Now to continue on my quest to Platinum #100...
  8. Platinum #30- Kingdom Hearts III (PS4)...

    Whew. Milestone reached. Mental to think that in my first thirty platinums lies the entirety of the Kingdom Hearts series! What a journey, and I look forward to the next chapter (as well as the next 70 plats in  my Road to #100!)

      Thanks everyone! I've reached my Likes limit for today but I'll get around to each of you for your +1 reps tomorrow!

      @DamagingRob indeed, it's my second KH milestone, got the plat for BBS on PS3 as my 10th, I think! Wish I'd cared a little more about milestones before now but from now on I'll make every 10th plat a juicy one!

      I have 3. I'd probably have 4, but I just didn't care for DDD that much. Very tempted to get KH3, and make it my 400th.

  9. List isn't great, no, but the games certainly are, so that makes this is a must-buy for me
  10. #29- DARKSIDERS (PS3) BFA Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 3/10 Time Taken: 2 Weeks, 3 Days, 1 Hour (17 Hours in-game) Rarity: 3.0% Ultra Rare (PSN) / 13.25% Rare (PSNProfiles) Hardest Trophy: The True Horseman (Gold)- COMPLETE the game on APOCALYPTIC difficulty I serve only the Council. Only the Balance. As the Horsemen always have... Another cool game that I played years ago on 360. It took me way longer to get this than I anticipated but life just gets busy sometimes, I guess. A cool mix of old God of War and Devil May Cry, Darksiders follows War, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and his quest to clear his name after being wrongfully accused of conspiring to bring about the Apocalypse too early. Liam O'Brien puts in a great performance as War, with Troy Baker and Mark Hamill rounding out a voiceover superstar cast. In terms of gameplay, War doesn't quite have the speed or maneuverability of Kratos or Dante, but his attacks have power and weight behind them, brute strengthing his way through hordes of demons in his quest for redemption. As well as his big ass sword, War also wields Death's Scythe, a crossblade, a big handcannon and a gauntlet to pound in Angel chests. The combat isn't overly flashy but it is meaty and visceral. The game isn't all that challenging, even on Apocalyptic difficulty, with very generous checkpoints (mosly) and in a pinch activating War's demon form is basically a free win in almost any scrap. However, it may not be difficult but it is still very fun. I had a very good time revisiting War's story and will do so again on PS4 soon. Even though I have a copy of Darksiders II on PS3, I won't be playing it due to the platinum being unobtainable so I'll have to only play the Deathinitive Edition on PS4. For now, I will be finishing up Kingdom Hearts III...
  11. Platinum #29- Darksiders (PS3) ...

    took me far too long but that's just how work/ life goes sometimes. Great game. The next platinum will be tomorrow!

  12. Trophy tracker as well as total time spent playing a game a la Steam
  13. This game has had notoriously sparse marketing and quite frankly I'd completely forgotten about it so forgive me for not being as all-knowing as you
  14. Met ProJared three years ago, seemed like a cool guy. Sickens me to think he was capable of being such a disgusting prick but that's people for you.

      You can never truly know what another person is capable of or what goes on inside their head. Until they're caught, that is...

      Yeah. Famous Youtubers will one day meet their downfall. Like say the Quaterning. I heard some disturbing stuff about that YouTuber and I feel he too will meet the same fate as ProJared. Not trying to offends fans of the Quarterning, but I googled him and found out that a Magic the Gathering cosplayer quit the community because the Quartering was harassing and cyberbullying her.
