  1. I’m not even able to go 5 shows in a row without server issues or game crashing, much less winning all 5 of those shows in a row. Fun game, though.
  2. The gameplay for Persona 5 is the same in Persona 5 Royal, except there's a few small tweaks. I never played the original, but I read online that Royal added some new confidants, gave you more time to do in-game activities (such as letting you out on some nights where it normally wouldn't), and added some new Personas / balancing. I heard the changes don't stand out too much and the new content really picks up after the conclusion of the original game, so the entire introduction / first palace in the game is about the same as the original. If you didn't get hooked the first time, then I wouldn't advise getting Royal as most of the content is the same as the base game. Payday 2 is prone to crashing and glitching somewhat frequently. Every few hours, I'd run into some glitch or crash, which definitely kills the game a bit. I'd advise the PC version since it's a bit better, but the game has some major flaws which haven't been addressed in 7 years still. I stuck with it because I found the gameplay and general premise really neat, but it's not for everybody.
  3. Even though I don't know how much progress I'll make since I'll be in training for a new job in August, I'd love to participate I told you I'd join the fun and I won't go back on my word! Slight problem, I don't have a team though... so I suppose I'll have to be added to the "looking for a team list" for now. This event looks really neat! Nice banner.
  4. I pick whatever I'm in the mood to play. As long as I'm having fun with the game, I continue to play it. I usually get burnt out after 30-40 hours of actively being focused on one particular game, so I'll put that one down and come back to it a few months/years later to put in some more time. Next, I try to finish the online trophies as soon as possible. I don't hate online trophies like most people do, but I do prefer to finish them early on so that I can focus on the offline aspects of the game. I do this in case I get burnt out playing a game and the online trophies become unattainable before I can get back to it. After that, I'll do a blind playthrough of the game and just have fun with it. If a game is really, really long I'll do the collectibles along with my first playthrough (like The Witcher 3's Gwent cards) because a 100+ hour game will usually takes me months, maybe even years to complete. I have such a large backlog of games that I want to start so I don't want to have to sink another 100+ hours into the same game for the sake of getting a few easy collectible trophies. I'd rather get started on the next adventure, and then maybe come back to replay the 100+ hour games when I finish my backlog and there's no new games for me to play. I try to stick to no more than 3 games at a given time, but burnout gets to me and I move on to other games. Usually, it's just back to games that I previously got burnt out on but I've been starting up some new games recently that have online trophies. I have a lot of time for the next few weeks, so I want to complete the online trophies for games that I'm interested in playing later on since they might not have servers up by the time I get this much free time to focus on trophy hunting again.
  5. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. It has some of the best action sequences in gaming. Plus, the trophy list is fairly easy (aside from Survival trophies). I see you have Uncharted 1-3 platinums already so finish out the Nathan Drake saga
  6. Payday 2: Crimewave Edition for me. The bugginess can be frustrating but the game is still really fun. Part of my enjoyment may be nostalgia from playing its predecessor (Payday: The Heist) a lot but the trophy list has some tough ones in there. Completing all contracts on Death Wish and some of the stealth speedruns were really difficult and took a lot of tries to get. I still play on PC (which I can confidently say is the best way of experiencing this game). World War Z was also very fun. Completing all of the missions on insane difficulty was really tough with randoms and I never thought I would earn that trophy. You could also play on extreme difficulty (the highest difficulty in the game) to earn that trophy, but I've only managed to clear about 4 missions on extreme. I highly recommend it if you liked L4D and want a good challenge.
  7. I second this. I've only gotten to the 2nd palace in the game and I'm already 23 hours in. This has already become one of my favorite games of all time and I'm sure it'll be consistently fun. This is easily going to be a 150+ hour platinum for me.
  8. I just made an Excel spreadsheet for all of the games that I own that I want to play on PS3 / PS4. There's 13 PS3 games and 41 PS4 games, and an additional 16 games that are already on my profile. That's 70 games that I want to complete before I'm ready to commit to the PS5 😅

     

    Given my current completion rate, I'll finish all of these games in about 6-7 years. The PS5 will practically be replaced by the PS6 by then 😂

      @PooPooBlast I saw 3 I think might be up your alley: Persona 5 Royal, Superhot, and Crossing Souls. I haven't played Crossing Souls yet but Persona 5 Royal and Superhot have both been pretty fun games.

       

      I just remembered that I forgot to add the Kingdom Hearts games. That brings me to 78 games. Go ahead and add another year on 😂

       

      Also, Mirror's Edge Catalyst is on my list :P.

      Ayy ma man! 

       

      im always keeping an eye out for a sale but I'm probably going to have to accept that soon I'm going to run out of games. Eh might give me a chance to replay old games again or do an alt with plats of my favourite games. Just a thought.

      I did the same thing when PS3 was changing over to PS4. I think I was up around 400-500 games (actually owned), which led me to believe I would never want/need a PS4 at all. Then a friend bought me a PS4 for Christmas and all of my plans went to crap. :lol:

  9. I'm struggling to come up with a game that is fun, fairly easy, time consuming, and difficult. I'm going to assume that difficulty doesn't matter since fairly easy and difficult are opposites I'd say Payday 2: Crimewave Edition. You have to complete all contracts on Death Wish, along with a lot of miscellaneous other trophies. It'll take around ~70-80 hours to platinum if you're playing naturally and not hardcore trophy boosting from the moment you start. Death Wish can be difficult, but once you get yourself a proper build and learn the maps and mechanics of the heists, you'll have a fairly easy time with it. If going for 100%, that's where the really time-consuming part kicks in. There's 68 DLC trophies, including trophies for reaching Infamy level 25 (infamy levels are this game's version of prestiging like in Call of Duty). Getting the 100% took me hundreds of hours but it's a really fun game, despite how frequently I would encounter bugs and glitches during heists.
  10. Any games that you can craft temporary buffs / boosts for your character. For example, Dying Light lets you craft boosters that temporarily increase your fighting stamina or damage resistance. I don't bother with it since I don't want to waste the resources on a buff that might give me a slight edge in battle. None of the fights are particularly difficult so I feel like the buffs are useless. I forgot they even existed until I saw this thread 😂
  11. Hopefully this fixes the insane lag / frame rate issues. There's no way they didn't know about the performance issues before they released the game, and instead of patching it up, they're just porting it over to PS5. It's likely not a PS4 hardware problem because I've never played a game where the framerate stutters for a few seconds whenever you unpause the game. It's not the most complex and graphically-intensive game in the world so I'm sure these issues are definitely fixable. It sucks that they're ignoring it and just cashing in on a (presumably more polished) PS5 port instead. I liked the setting of Control and the gameplay. I hope they clean up any issues when releasing the PS5 version and allow PS4 owners to upgrade to the PS5 version for free. Otherwise, I wouldn't pay for this one again. I hope that the inevitable sequel addresses the shortcomings of this game because I could see this becoming a great IP.
  12. 5th 1. Ratchet & Clank (PS4) - 0% 2. Layers of Fear - 0% 3. Nier Automata - 0% 4. The Division 2 - 20% --> 86% 5. GRIS - 0% 6. Fractured Minds - 0% --> 100% 7. Dying Light - 0% --> 58% I started the Warlords of New York expansion for The Division 2. I'm about halfway done with it so far, and it's been okay, but there's a lot of "filler" content in here. Originally, I thought it was going to be 15 new story missions, but the majority of those missions are 2 minute fetch quests. "Go here and press square, mission complete" seems like a very lazy way to pad this DLC out and try to justify the $30 price tag. I'll 100% the DLC by this weekend (if I work up the motivation to finish it off) and then I'll be putting down The Division 2 until Discovery Mode releases for the Iron Horse raid. It'll be a lot simpler and more enjoyable to play the raid with matchmaking and with less complicated raid mechanics. I finished the story of Dying Light, as well as completing all of the online trophies and the Bozak Horde DLC. I thought the Bozak Horde trials speedrun was easy, even though the guide online rates it as a 7/10 . Multiple times my partner and I finished the trials with 2 minutes to spare for the speedrun trophy. The reason was likely that there was a community event occurring in-game that made all kicks and punches deadly to enemies. Like, they would get launched across the map whenever I dropkicked one of them 😂 I definitely got lucky with my timing of when I chose to play the Bozak Horde DLC. I've gotten sucked into Persona 5 Royal for the past week so I didn't make much progress at all on my backlog challenge. I'm 21 hours in and I'm just beginning the 2nd palace so I probably won't finish this game until next summer 😂. I'm planning on finishing GRIS and maybe also Layers of Fear before the end of July so I can continue to make progress on my list.
  13. It looks really easy. Just complete the story, complete the side activities on the map, and a few miscellaneous combat trophies. Also: Cooper Clan Cosplayer Dress up as a legendary thief. You'd better believe I'm going to be running around as Sly Cooper
  14. In your Spider-Man trophies, how did you catch all of the pigeons before completing Act I? If I recall correctly, you don't even unlock the pigeons until Act II. Also, the guide on the website says that pigeons can't be unlocked until after completing Act I. EDIT: Never mind, the guide is incorrect. The side mission for pigeons unlocks towards the end of Act I. EDIT AGAIN: Your Last of Us trophies on PS3. How did you get the trophy for finding all of the collectibles, and then get the trophy for collecting all trading manuals 42 minutes later? You also got the trophy for collecting all of the comics 2 hours after popping the "find all collectibles" trophy. The "finding all collectibles" trophy includes training manuals and comics (according to the guide). This sounds like it's impossible, unless there's a glitch I don't know of? https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/1989-the-last-of-us/PLAY3_MICHEL?order=date
  15. I also have a hard time choosing what I want to play / watch next. There's so much I still want to get around to, but I know that once I choose something, I'm not likely to start anything else until I see it through. I only like to have a few active shows / games at any given time. I usually cycle back and forth between the same 3-4 games and TV shows and by the time I finish my "set" of them, I feel kinda empty because they've been part of my routine for the past few weeks / months. I make my choice based on my current life situation. I have a lot of free time for the next month, so I decided to start up Persona 5 Royal since I can deeply invest myself in it. Whenever I'm busy, if I do end up starting anything, it's usually something small.
