  2. Sorry for being inactive for so long. Been dealing with a lot of things. Here's a list of what I've done so far. Guacamelee! 2: Monsters include Skeletons, Chupacabras, killer plants, and more Complete a game that counts towards a different PSNP event. Complete all currently released DLC of a game (games only count once, even if more DLC is released throughout the event). Complete a game that you started this month Bastion: Monsters include floating eyes, Giant tunneling beings, killer plants, and more. Complete a game that counts towards a different PSNP event. Complete a game that you started this month Journey: The only monsters that show up are giant worms with spotlights. Complete a game that counts towards a different PSNP event. Complete a game that you started this month Layers of Fear: Monsters are a Vengeful Ghost and Dolls Complete 4 games within one month. Complete all currently released DLC of a game (games only count once, even if more DLC is released throughout the event). Complete a game that you started this month Stats update: Platinum trophies: 90 (+8)100% completed: 113 (+12)Completion: 92.76 (+.94%)
  3. Bastion: 0%➡️100% Batman: The Telltale Series (PS4): 0%➡️100% Bioshock 2 (PS4): 0% Guacamelee! 2: 100% Hotline Miami: 87% Journey (PS3): 0%➡️100%✅ Bastion was good, but I don't really have much to say about it. The main take away from the game is the Totems. It reminded me of how Transistor did difficulty challenges (the more you have on, the more exp and money you gain). The Totems were a lot more trouble then they were worth, but if you upgrade your weapons right and equip the right elixirs, they can pretty much neutralize any negative effects. That being said, I could only do it on New Game+/Score Attack Mode, so it's not that helpful. Batman is probably the worst Telltale game I've played so far. I was so not into any of what was going on. I should have cared about what's going on. It's a new take on a bunch of well know characters, but the story just dragged on and I just wanted more gameplay and less melodrama scenes. The new villain was cool and had me guessing who it could have been, but even that fell flat by the end since Telltale needed to tie all the ending together so they could start Season 2. I really hope that Season 2 is a lot better, because the lack of anything to do has really put me off so far. A replay of Journey. Now I'm at a cross road. Do I try to get the glitched trophies from Hotline Miami, or do I switch out for something else? I still have Bioshock to complete to make that decision.
  4. So that's why my controller is doing that. I had to play half of the Kingdom Hearts games with the characters randomly moving slowly, since there's a dead zone on the top of the left stick. Now I have a controller that I use for 3D games and one for 2D games.
  5. Update #1 and I've already hit a snag. Bastion: 0% Batman: The Telltale Series (PS4): 0% Bioshock 2 (PS4): 0% Guacamelee! 2: 0%➡️100% Hotline Miami: 0%➡️87% Journey (PS3): 0% First off, Guacamelee was once again great. No complaints aside from a downgrade in the big bad and his cohorts. Both of these games quickly became two of my favrate games on PS4. Hotline Miami is an interesting mixed bag. I went into the game knowing it was hard and I got my money's worth. Everyone dies with one shot or one strike, no mater if it's you or the oponite. This is a great way of making it hard but fair. However, there were multiple times that I was sure I should have killed someone, and they were able to walk up to me and hit me. The amount of times I pointed a shotgun point blank at an enimey and MISSED are very numerous. The worst part is that I'm not even sure if it was the game being unfair or if the game was glitching on me. I've had weapons fly through walls into other rooms, enimeies phasing into the background, doors not hitting enimeies randomly, and people killing me through doors and walls that can't be shot through (and yes I did check to see if I could do the same and found out I couldn't). I read that they patched the game to make it more stable, but I obviously still found some bugs. Two very obvious bugs being for the trophies Knives for Pros (Use all melee weapons at least once) and Always on Top (Perform every ground kill in the game), which I was informed should no longer be glitched. I think I've gone through the game 3 times with a checklist of what I need to do and they still have not popped. I'm going to have to give up on it for now and so something that isn't as frustrating. Maybe if I do it on the PS3 later, I can get them to pop. What a shame. I really enjoyed it too. If anyone wants to do Journey, I might do that next and we could meet up there if we're lucky. That game is really relaxing and is something I kinda need at the moment.
  6. A last minute lineup change before I start. Sorry for the late swapping. I forgot that I had Bioshock on this list and I already did it. Bastion Batman: The Telltale Series (PS4) Bioshock 2 (PS4) Guacamelee! 2 Hotline Miami Journey (PS3) Two easy games, two hard games, and Bastion and Guacamelee 2. A fair balance. Doing two a month sounds more then reasonable.
  7. Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS4): 100% Batman: Arkham City (PS4): 100% BioShock (PS4): 12%➡️100% Brave: 0%➡️100% Caveman Warriors: 100% Chroma Squad: 100% Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition: 100% Degrees of Separation: 100% Detroit: Become Human: 100% Fear Effect Sedna: 100% Iconoclasts: 100% Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep (PS3): 100% Minecraft: Story Mode (PS4) 100% Murdered: Soul Suspect (PS4): 100% Plants vs Zombies (PS3): 100% Rayman Origins (PS3): 100% The Coma: Recut: 100% Watch Dogs (PS4): 100% And I'm done. I have done all the games I said I would do. It's been a long couple of months but it was fun to take part in. BioShock was a pain in the butt. I didn't have fun when I first played it, but I thought that it was just my mind set back then. Well I can't say if it was or not, but doing a run on Survivor with no Vita-Chambers really didn't help my feeling towards the game. I'm pretty sure my opinion has improved since I did enjoy it more then I did last time, but I really could only play it in chunks, which is why it took me almost a month to beat it. This was the first time playing the DLC and it was a mixed bag. The ‘I’ in Team is easy and doesn't have that much replay value after one go. A Shocking Turn of Events was really interesting, and was probably the best combination of gameplay and trophies. Worlds of Hurt was the best mode, but had the worst trophy. I loved that you could tackle almost any of the rooms in any order and as such you could have so many tactics to go through the mode. The Expert trophy however, gives you next to no time to complete it. I really almost gave up on it. Brave was alright. Haven't seen the movie, but I can follow it pretty well. Though I'm pretty sure most of what happened it the game didn't happen in the movie, but whatever. Fairly short game, but honestly the Brave difficulty was pretty hard. I wouldn't go as far as to say it was good, but I had fun with it (up until I had to grind for all the upgrades).
  8. If you still need an extra boosting partner, I'll be willing to start Brotherhood or Revelations.
  9. Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS4): 100% Batman: Arkham City (PS4): 100% Brave: 0% Caveman Warriors: 100% Chroma Squad: 100% Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition: 100% Degrees of Separation: 100% Detroit: Become Human: 100% Fear Effect Sedna: 100% Iconoclasts: 100% Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep (PS3): 100% Minecraft: Story Mode (PS4) 100% Murdered: Soul Suspect (PS4): 100% Okage: Shadow King: 0%➡️ BioShock (PS4): 0%➡️12% Plants vs Zombies (PS3): 100% Rayman Origins (PS3): 100% The Coma: Recut: 100% Watch Dogs (PS4): 25%➡️100% After finishing the game, I figured out why my opinions on Watch Dogs sounded familiar. It's almost the same opinion I had when I played Assassin's Creed Unity. An uninteresting story that had aspects of a much greater story hidden just underneath. A main character that was one note compared to most of the side characters. A wide open map and most of the side missions from the start. A multiplayer that was much better then the single player. They even had two character related spoilers the same. The two differences between the two was that Watch Dogs ties into the overall Assassin's Creed story more then Unity (for side mission spoiler reasons) and I think I enjoyed the game more then I did Unity. Even though the story was mostly a huge cliche mess, the driving, hacking and firefights made up for most of it's short comings. The last level is probability my favorite part as it has someone using your gadgets against you and it makes a very interesting way to brake the forth way. Fair warning though, if you suffer from epilepsy or can't handle flashing lights very well, this and Act 4, mission 2 have an effect that made me sick, and stuff like that doesn't effect me normally. Quick review of the DLC: It has a better story then the main game and expands on two of the characters. The side missions are made more for multiplayer, which is still fun, but get old fast since you need to do 60 missions to get three trophies. If I had to give them both a score, I would say a 7/10 for the main game and a 7.5/10 for the DLC. I'm not feeling up to playing an RPG right now. If I still had another month, I would probably still play Okage, but for now, I'm swapping with Bioshock. A few of the trophies may be a little hard (namely the Challenge Room DLC and the Survivor difficulty run), but I'm pretty sure I can get it done.
  10. My first game for the month is Gal*Gunvolt Burst - A game where one of the playable characters is a robot and most of the bosses and enemies are robots. Fulfills the Hardcore requirement: I'm unfamiliar with Gunvolt, so I'm not sure what he is or what his fairy friend is, but Beck's opening specifically calls him and the other Mighty Numbers robots.
  11. The speed run is definitely going to be your hardest trophy f you go for the platinum, but it's not impossible. I used the extra save slots they give you as insurance in case I didn't like the time. The stages are short enough that you can aim between 2-3 minutes, but don't be afraid to go slightly over 4.That way you can take your time with the final level. An important thing to remember is to NOT use Restart. It will restart the stage and rest the timer but your previous time will still count. It's best to either close the application so the time is not counted or quit, go to file select, and copy over the emergency file. Here's a video if you do buy the game and go for the Super Sprinter trophy. So in short, yeah $5 is a good price for the game.
  12. I'm in the same boat as Briste. I lost one of a 100% because of KH3's DLC, so my stats are going to be a little weird for this month. Platinum trophies: 84 (+2)100% completed: 103 (+2)Completion: 92.10%. (+0.28)
  13. I'll do it again since they are always fun to take part in. However, I'll put together a more definitive list once the time gets closer. You never know what you'll buy/play in a month's time. Here's what I'm thinking of doing at the very least. Bastion Batman: The Telltale Series (PS4) Beyond: Two Souls (PS3) Bioshock (PS4) Guacamelee! 2 I wonder if I can find another B game to replace Guacamelee so I can have all Bs for the challenge. Maybe I'll buy Bleed or Braid so I can do that.
  14. Only one game this month. Batman: Arkham City - So here's the thing. I, myself, would not count this since it's Batman and Batman does not have powers. He has gadgets. However, he is a Superhero so..... Counts towards a different PSNP event: The Backlog Challange Fulfills the Hardcore Complete all currently released DLC Complete a game that you started this month
  15. Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS4): 100% Batman: Arkham City (PS4): 100% Brave: 0% Caveman Warriors: 100% Chroma Squad: 100% Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition: 100% Degrees of Separation: 100% Detroit: Become Human: 100% Fear Effect Sedna: 100% Iconoclasts: 100% Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep (PS3): 100% Minecraft: Story Mode (PS4) 100% Murdered: Soul Suspect (PS4): 100% Okage: Shadow King: 0% Plants vs Zombies (PS3): 100% Rayman Origins (PS3): 100% The Coma: Recut: 100% Watch Dogs (PS4): 0%25% My impression of Watch_Dogs is that it's fun as long as you don't play the story. I'm not sure if it's bad, but I just know that I'm not engaged enough to continue it. The game is just so open that you can do so much at the start of the game. There is normally a reason most of a sandbox is locked off until you beat a certain amount of the game, and that's so you'll play the game. Arkham City had Riddler Trophies, Venom containers, phone booth races, prisoner assaults, and more, but each of those are locked off until you have a certain gadget or area unlocked. Right now, I have all multiplayer trophies and most of the music, hot spots, and Fixer Contracts, and I'm just on Act 1 Mission 5. According to the progression wheel, I'm 44.6% done. I'm having fun and that's the important part, but I really should not be 44% done with the game.
