  1. It’s time for me to move on.

     

    A year ago, I never saw myself leaving gaming or this site. But recently, I’ve come to see my gaming as a cheap band-aid that tries to fix much bigger problems. It’s become an addiction. I’ve been playing ever since I was 6 years old.

     

    I’ve had fun on this site in the past year. I’ve met some great people like @ihadalifeb4this @SinisterPledge @PooPooBlast @Mythologuy @Beyondthegrave07 @Copanele (the list could go on and on but I’ll stop for the sake of space).

     

    I don’t know if I’ll ever be back. If I’m not, it’s been an honor getting to know you all.

     

    I wish everybody the best on their future endeavors ;)

  2. The only simulator I would actually buy. I just built my PC a few days ago, shame this couldn’t come out sooner
  3. Doki Doki Literature Club.

     

    Oh boy.

     

    This has to be one of the most memorable gaming experiences for me ever. My friend told me about it a few months ago, but I didn't start it until recently. I just finished it after a 6 hour session tonight. Wow. Let me tell you, if you haven't played, YOU ARE NOT READY FOR THIS GAME. I thought I was. I've seen some crazy things in my life, and I wasn't scared off by the whole "This game is not suitable for children and has distressing images" warning. I figured, "It's a visual novel, what's the worst it could do?"

     

    That was stupid of me to think. If you ever choose to play, a few hints to enhance the experience:

    • Keep your game files open on the screen off to the side. I'm not going to spoil anything, but just keep it open.
    • Explore. Kind of goes with the first point. I found so much by exploring all facets of the game.
    • Brace yourself. It helps, but it really doesn't save you.
    • If you're really sensitive, DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME. It's not a challenge. It's a warning. Don't take this lightly: it is an incredibly twisted game at its core. Incredibly creative for its genre, and I've never seen another game like it, but incredibly twisted.

     

    I like to think of myself as strong. I survived MW2's campaign on Veteran, I survived Titanfall 2's Gauntlet, I survived Outlast on Insane difficulty. I kid you not when I say I was hyperventilating at one point playing this. Maybe I just resonated with the game too much, but it hits like a freight train.

     

    SPOILER TALK IN THE TAG BELOW

    Spoiler

    Worst moment by far was Sayori's suicide. That was the most horrible, mortifying moment of the entire game.The flashing images, the sounds, the sheer shock. I'm getting chills just typing this. Also the cause of said hyperventilation. Even though I saw it coming (Monika saying "you really left her hanging this morning", Sayori's screwed up "get out of my head" poem, Sayori not responding to her phone or the door), it still hit me out of nowhere. I had to stop the game for 30 minutes and just sit there. Also, the hxppythxghts.png file that was added to the game file? DIDN'T HELP.

     

    Second worst moment was Yuri's suicide. I did not expect her to just stab herself out of nowhere and have me spend the entire weekend watching her slowly die. That was not as scary as Sayori, but still was awful.

     

    I got the "Just Monika" ending where she just sits and stares at you in that room in space. I ended up deleting her and having the game freak out and all that.

     

    Do I plan on reinstalling the game to see Natsuki's development / demise? Possibly. Do I think that it's insane that the game literally tells you about an active Twitter page they have for Monika? Absolutely. The last tweet was August 3rd I believe, and for a 2 year old game, that's insane.

     

    It's a free game on Steam. It takes a few hours to play (depending on how much you explore or just sit stunned). Don't let the "ew anime girls VN" put you off. There is a genuinely creative game in there that you don't realize is happening until it does.

     

     

    I'm going to try to sleep now. I haven't been this shaken by a game since I played Actual Sunlight a few years ago.

      Well, even though I do not play on PC anymore, I remember watching (and now watched the scenes again) of the events that occured inside your spoiler tag. I don't know about the game story at all, but yeah, I understand you. 

      Even though I was already spoiled, don't know if I still have the courage to play it... EVen if it is free, haha! xD

      @Copanele I picked Yuri almost immediately. Apparently that’s the “right” one to pick as well. Yuri was great for a while...

       

      I had 3 different nightmares last night about this game. I almost never dream at night, yet I managed to have 3 distinct nightmares. This game has me messed up.

    4. Copanele

      Copanele

      @ResoluteRock yep that was my pick as well... she was a cut above the rest couldn't help myself sorry kek

      I do get why you got nightmares. Didn't give me the same vibes but I do understand why this game can be disturbing xD 

      Beats up all the other horrors from a mile away.

  4. Anybody have Payday 2 for the PS4 and want to get the “Sounds of Animals Fighting” trophy tomorrow? I posted a boosting session for it but nobody has joined so I’m going to shamelessly promote it here :P

      If you will have trouble finding people i will download game again. However i can't today. Thursday, or weekend would work for me. Send me message on PSN this  Wednesday to let me know where you at with this. Fingers crossed you find someone cause i'm not looking forward to 100 GB download. Also be careful for Sound of Animals. Only 4 masks count. There are some other from Hotline that won't do anything. Also if you switch loadout before heist, or before day 2 mask will switch automatically. Make sure everyone is aware of that.

      Thanks :) I might have 4 people to do it with for tomorrow, fingers crossed everything lines up! I'm so close to getting the platinum for this game, as I can do everything else solo except for this trophy. I wish I could just use crew management and change their masks and have it count.

  5. I finished the main story for Monster Hunter: World last night. I don’t know what I could say that hasn’t been said about this game already, but wow! It transformed from a game I didn’t like or have any interest in into one of my favorite PS4 games. Every broken part, every mount, every capture / kill is so satisfying. This is especially true towards the end of the game, when the monsters are unbelievably strong and terrifying.

     

    This isn’t the end of my journey yet. When I started, I told myself I was never going to try to get all the crowns. I (might?) decide to go for platinum here, just because the game has been that fun!

      @ResoluteRock What a great review of the game!  Really appreciate it!  I'm an ESO player, so hearing about the crafting, weapons and buff items is right down my line.  I had no idea the game was set up like this.  Question: In ESO, a couple of years ago you crafted better sets of armor and weapons to progress through the game. Plus you need to research traits so that you could put desired traits on your gear.  Can you pick up great gear from battles, or is it mainly crafting?  

    3. ResoluteRock

      ResoluteRock

      @Lorajet It’s only through crafting. You get different parts from monsters that you hunt (as both mission rewards and from carving them) and that allows you to craft gear sets that have different stats to them. As you get into high rank armor, you can craft gear that has slots for adding different traits (increased poison damage, better evade, etc.) You’ll find plenty of these various traits through mission rewards so you’ll have a variety to choose from.

       

      If you liked ESO I think you’d enjoy MHW. If you ever pick up the game, feel free to shoot me a message if you want a hunting partner :)

      The game sounds fantastic!  Looks like I'll be looking for a copy and it is great to have someone to roam the wild with (especially someone who knows what they are doing)!  Thanks so much!

  6. @Beyondthegrave07 Been there, done that. Only had to use 4 gates to break Paul’s body and spirit A fellow weightlifter I see. How much do you bench? What’s your favorite exercise? Are there any bodybuilders / powerlifters you look up to?
  7. No Time To Explain. It’s a short game, only costs a few dollars, but it’s a funny, creative game that reminds of flash games back in the day. The premise is you have this sort of light-beam gun that you use for platforming by blasting yourself everywhere. A little bit like Fancy Pants Man (if anyone remembers those games haha). Plus, cool hats to wear! Only about 1300 people have played the game, which is a shame because I enjoyed it quite a bit.
  8. I hope so! The world in Control looks really interesting and spooky, I’d love to have some lore for it
  9. Just a heads up for anybody with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: the final Lost Tale of Greece, “Old Flames Burn Brighter”, released today. For the first time in many months, the 100% is now achievable!

      @ResoluteRock - Thanks for this, I was holding off tackling all of the DLC until it was considered complete.

      DO NOT DELETE THE GAME AFTERWARDS

       

      this game will have a discovery tour added soon, very likely that it will include trophies

       

  10. It looks like a fun trophy list! 120 collectibles looks like a lot though 😅 I’ve never been a huge fan of collectibles (if they don’t serve a purpose other than for the sake of collecting them) but I still like the list overall.
  11. Professional Earn all 3 stars in at least 15 different Special Op missions. 29th Nov 2018 10:57:22 AM 15.13% RARE Star 69 Earn 69 stars in Special Ops. 29th Nov 2018 10:57:09 AM 10.17% RARE You earned Star 69 (all stars) before earning Professional (3 stars in 15 operations). Given that there are 23 operations, you had to have 22 operations at 3 stars before earning 3 stars on your last mission to get to 69 stars. It's impossible to earn 69 stars before earning 3 stars in 15 different Spec Ops missions since that would've been earned along the way. EDIT: you'll just have to hide the game to get back on the leaderboards
  12. Even if you can drop the difficulty (I know you can change between easy, normal, and hard mid-game, not sure about survival or if that's different), I feel like you're not going to enjoy the story as much. The game will be significantly harder, to the point of rage quitting. Up to you how you want to experience your games, but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone. I'm playing on normal difficulty right now and although it's not rage quitting hard, I have had quite a few difficult moments. Every encounter still requires planning, whether it be an enemy camp or a group of freakers. Especially when you start the game, all it takes is a few freakers chasing you at once to kill you like you're nothing. EDIT: You can only change between Easy and Normal if you chose either one when you started. People who choose Hard / Survival are stuck on that mode.
  13. About a week ago, I ended up removing the eject button from my PS4 like many suggested, and I’ve had no problems with it trying to randomly eject!

     

    ...until now. It just started beeping 3 times every 5 seconds and trying to spit something out still. I have to guess that it’s a software problem by now because I removed the ability to eject discs physically. Come on, Sony! :shakefist:

      After looking up more solutions, it seems like it might be an issue with dust causing a buildup of static electricity that trips the sensor.

       

      I’m going to try cleaning it out and putting some tape over it to see if that effectively exorcises my PS4 😅

      Haven’t checked that out yet but I’ll make sure to give it a shot if it keeps acting up ;)

  14. I like the new Ribbon of Rarity redesign with the original platinum trophy image! I still agree with 50%. There are very very few games that have over 50% for their platinum that require a modest effort. Most are quick games that take only a few hours. Also, for anyone who feels it discriminated against part of the user base on PSNP that like “ezpz Ratalaika games”, vote for the option to hide ribbons! If someone doesn’t want the ribbons on their profile, they don’t need to have it at all. It kind of cuts the “discrimination” argument to..... ribbons But yay I like it!
  15. UPDATE #2 1. Days Gone 0% --> 19% 2. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel 23% --> 36% 3. inFamous: Second Son 0% 4. Actual Sunlight 0% 5. Spider-Man 0% --> 18% My second update (and very little to report haha) Spider-Man: I got a few more collectibles and continued the story into Act 2. I haven't progressed much more into the game since I last posted, as I've been getting distracted by other games / life (typical me). The stats for this challenge aren't looking too cute, but I'm going to take a real shot at finishing Spider-Man before the end! I have to finish at least one game 😅
