  1. Thank you very much for this!! I can only assume that you have to find the valuable then complete the contract for it to count? Not sure if you were able to test this, but I'm guessing that's probably how it has to be done.
  2. Thank you buddy. I had a feeling that was exactly what was causing the damage ๐Ÿ˜’ I'll give the weedwhacker a go then! Much appreciate it ๐Ÿ˜€
  3. Kitties ๐Ÿ˜ป I haven't played a solid cat game since Cat Quest 2... You've certainly piqued my interest on this one!!
  4. Thanks! I was wondering if that's what was screwing me up, even tho it didn't yell at me about it ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'll try that later.
  5. Care to share what ended up working for you? I do perfectly as best as I can tell but still always end up with at least $.50 in fines ๐Ÿ˜…
  6. Well it only took me a month and a half, but I finally have an update to report! I guess that's what happens when you pick several loooooooong games ๐Ÿ˜† I just finished up Trials Rising last night... I only recently got into this series, having finished Trials Fusion about a month or so ago. I am absolutely in love with it tho! If you aren't familiar with the franchise, it is a physics-based platforming racer. You are racing against the clock more so than other people; it is a highly addicting formula, easy to pick up but very difficult to master! I think I've spent close to 300 hours between the 2 games just to give you an idea. Here is a video of me acquiring a Diamond medal on one of the tracks, in case you'd like to see the game in action: The trophy list is very challenging, asking you to get a gold medal on every single track and skill game, including the really challenging Extreme tracks. There are also a few fun challenges you have to do, like getting a 0 fault run on the Tandem Bike that's meant for 2 people (that I ended up doing solo ๐Ÿ˜‚). At any rate, I very much enjoyed my time with this series and very highly recommend it... Just make sure you buckle in for the ride, because it's gonna take many many hours of practice to hone your skills and nab that 100%! So here we are with my progress so far: Elden Ring - 57% Everybody's Golf - 0% Hyper Light Drifter - 9% Trials Rising - 100% Velocity 2X - 9% I've also been plugging away at Elden Ring, although I've hit a bit of a wall with the last boss The Elden Beast... Just gonna keep trying and eventually I'll finish him off, which will allow me to properly clean up the last few trophies I need. I may swap this roguelite called Vagante in, as I just started that and have been enjoying it for the 20 minutes I got to play so far! But I'd like to play a little more to see if I really wanna stick it out. It's been a pleasure rocking out with you all so far, keep those trophies popping my peeps! Cheers!
  7. Got another update hot off the presses, as I've pressed through and finished Trials Rising! Man, what a fun journey this has been with the Trials universe... I'm pretty sad to see it go! I am having a tough time deciding whether I like Rising or Fusion better... On one hand, I really enjoyed all the crazy challenges on Fusion; there were still some of those on Rising, but not nearly as many fun ones. Rising seemed more like the trophy list was focused on getting good times as you need to gold medal every single track, including the tough extreme ones. I liked the bike physics slightly better on Rising tho, especially the Helium bike... That thing is just insane and you can basically climb up vertical walls with it! I dunno who I was kidding when I said, and I quote: Hahaha who the hell was I kidding, Trials Rising was still tough and quite the beast to overcome! Not quite as hard as Fusion, but damn close ๐Ÿ˜… @Arcesius my man, I dunno how the hell you finished this game so quickly... What took you a week and 6 days took me slightly over a month to do! Bravo to you my dude. Fun fact, I beat your Fusion time by 2 days, however I was nowhere near close to you on this one... Well played ๐Ÿ’ช One of the hardest trophies for me was completing all the Skill Games with a gold... Hill Climb was by far the hardest and here is my run in case you're curious: Another tough set was for getting Diamond medals in at least one track for the base game as well as both DLCs. 2 of them could be cheesed by playing easier skill games, however the 3rd I opted to actually do one of the tracks. Here is my Diamond run on Incan Times Duel: Last but not least was the trophy requiring a perfect run on the Tandem Bike. This basically works in that you need 2 people; each person provides 50% of the gas and leaning power. Well I opted to do this one solo, so here's my run of taking this on all by my lonesome: Alright, well that about wraps it up for me... I've been slowly working my way through Elden Ring, which obviously does not count for this challenge! So up next I plan to finish Death Road to Canada then I'm not quite sure what else will be next. Gonna try to play 1 new thing and 1 thing out of the backlog at a time, as I usually split my time between 2 games. I'll likely swap something in for both Bleed & EarthNight... The former no longer counts for the Most Wanted and I can't say I have much desire to relearn all the bosses and such. The latter I just wasn't really feeling it and don't really wanna do that grind? At any rate, here we are so far: Bleed (1.02%) 70% Dead Cells (3.86%/0%!) 58% Death Road to Canada (HK stack; 2.63%) 81% EarthNight (1.52%) 45% Hyper Light Drifter (2.57%/1.67%) 9% Nuclear Throne (0.39%) 62% Slime San (EU stack; 3.13%) 100% Trials Fusion (0.1%) 100% Trials Rising (3.73%) 100% Velocity 2X (1.44%/0/33%) 8% Cheers ladies and gentleman, keep smashing out those UR plats!
  8. PSA: The Elden Beast can choke on a fat chode... That is all, thanks for watching!!

      Ha interesting suggestion there @Zas... I do believe I picked that up at some point, but I'm an Astrologer so I don't know I'd have the strength/dex to wield it! Been absolutely smashing through everything else (except Malenia and Placidusax, which I just haven't tried yet) and I just hit a wall hard here with this douche face ๐Ÿ˜…ย I'm also like level 165 or something like that, so you would thinkย I leveled enough already!

      @Joe Dubz That comet laser -does- tend to disintegrate everything else. :D I wielded a faith wep but flipped to pure Str for this exact battle 'cause of its high resists. You reached the recommend level range, aye! 'Least from the average at PSNP. I cannot recall my SL offhand. Was underleveled, tho'. Would not recommend. ;-;

      If you like fighting,ย the Elden Beast ain't for you...

      ย 

      ... however,ย if you like spending 10 minutes running towards something to fight, only for it to fly to the other side of an oversized arena for the fiftieth time....ย 

  9. Ah yes right on, I didn't even try half the skill games for this pack anyway. I was able to get this one by playing Incan Times Duel as you had mentioned, I think the general consensus is that is the easiest of them all to get a diamond on. I see you already completed the game, but if anyone in the future is going for this that's def the easiest one.
  10. I just wanted to point out that skill games actually do count for the diamond trophies. I popped the base game diamond trophy via the Power Bike skill game, as well as popping one of the DLC diamonds by using the Trials Wars skill game. Just for any future players going for these!
  11. Wow Doc, positively stellar Dead Cells review 2.0!! As I mentioned in your status update the other day, it's been a few years since I initially conquered this beast. I was quite enamored at seeing several new lists pop up for the game and hadn't really looked much into it other than reviewing said lists. I had been debating on whether I would take the plunge yet again, knowing full well I'd be getting my ass handed to me repeatedly trying to get the ground at my feet once again! But just reading your take on all this has me SOLD! Man, I will say tho... 5bc run sounds extremely daunting, as 4bc was excruciating enough as is ๐Ÿ˜… Ah well, as the good Doctor already prescribed, I see save scumming as the only way to get that done ๐Ÿ˜† Agreed with you on 3bc being the sweet spot with the game. OOC, are the paid ones available to purchase as a set, or do they need bought individually? Either way, I assume it's probably not terribly expensive for the lot... IIRC the base game was a meager $15 for me at the time of purchase? At any rate, loved hearing your take on this and, since I'm still stuck on finishing up Elden Ring, I'm gonna throw a "Praise the Dead Cells DLC" in there for good measure ๐Ÿ™Œ Also: "Try pickle, but hole" ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜‚
  12. I've been wondering about this too, I think I may have accidentally sold one but can't remember ๐Ÿ˜… Haven't quite gotten to the point where I looked through what I have versus what I'm missing.
  13. Congrats on the shiny new !! Even if the ending didn't make sense ๐Ÿค” It is a beautiful state tho, I'll give it that much!
  14. I did watch all 3 of your videos there... That is seriously an unparalleled challenge in terms of difficulty, but if there's anyone who can do it, it's you Danny ๐Ÿ’ช Best of luck to you if you decide to really go for it ๐Ÿคž
  15. Wow, this really does look like Ninja Senki DX on steroids ๐Ÿ˜ฎ It looks mad fun, but beat the game without continuing with 100% accuracy on insane??! That is gonna be insanely hard ๐Ÿ˜… This one def deserves to be a Most Wanted candidate IMO! No way in hell I'm touching that one tho ๐Ÿ˜‚
