    Always Sometimes Monsters has some fantastic quotes, I have way too many screenshots of quotes that I loved from it already and I've only been playing for about 2 hours :P So glad I picked up this gem on the Holiday Sale.

      @starcrunch061 What technical issues did you experience? All I've had is just a little freeze in dialogue for about ~10 seconds, but nothing much more than that.

      When I carried the boxes for one of the missions (I don't think that's a spoiler), the game kept hanging up. This happened for a couple of other missions, but it was really bad for that one (which I noticed more due to how I played the game). The game crashed on me about 7-10 times as well, which is always a pain.

      @starcrunch061 Game crashing definitely doesn’t sound fun, but at least the game has a great auto save system in place so at least you wouldn’t lose too much progress. Still sucks that it (might) crash repeatedly though :/

    NO TIME TO EXPLAIN

     

    I'm actually at a loss for words on this one... when I first started the game, I thought to myself "I'm probably never going to be able to 100% this", but it was an incredibly fun game that I think is well worth a playthrough. This idea was further cemented as I attempted the Straitjacket Darkness universe and died about ~100 times, and then saw that there was a no death trophy for it. :jaymon:

     

    But here I am. I'm shocked I even did this. I knocked out the 3 hardest trophies in the game (imo) all in about an hour. I thought it would take hours and hours of hard work and practice in order to have a shot at this. I have to admit though, I got incredibly lucky. About halfway through one of my "no death" runs in Straitjacket Darkness universe, I managed to pass by the hardest level in there without dying. Of course, the level was placed in the middle of the universe, so that every time you die to it you have to replay the first few levels again. I managed to get incredibly lucky and bypass the level, and after I calmed myself down I finished it out (that definitely would've been the hardest trophy for me, and the trophy's rarity reflects that).

     

    Overall, my final verdict: the game is delightfully fun. It's an indie game, sure, and that may not be everybody's cup of tea, but the game is very cheap (I picked it up for $1.50) and provides fresh, new twists on gameplay throughout the course of the game that keeps it interesting all the way through the very end. I can appreciate the challenge in the trophies, but they ARE doable. Maybe a little difficult, but the overall complete time for a run is so small that it's not like restarting an entire world for a no death run of Super Meat Boy. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS GAME, I couldn't be more proud to have it on my profile.

     

    tl;dr It's hard but doable, and you should buy it because it's cheap and criminally underrated.

  4. Working through Assassin's Creed Syndicate and Always Sometimes Monsters. I'm having an absolute blast with Assassin's Creed Syndicate, the world is so beautiful, especially the Thames River. Crossing the Thames is like playing an intense (British) parkour-based Frogger. Just finished Sequence 5
  5. All of my trophies on my profile just went to private? I just updated my account and everything went private, it wasn’t that way when I updated an hour ago.

     

    I double-checked my PSN settings, all games and trophies are set to “Anyone” and none of my games are hidden. Is it a problem from my end, or is this a known glitch on PSN/this site?

      Looks like there's been some weirdness with either the site or PSN lately. It's been happening to people randomly. Best bet is to do what @Squirlruler says. They'll eventually show back up.

      Just earned a trophy and updated my profile, all back to normal! +1 to all :)

  6. Sign me up for Titan! I have: - God of War (PS3) - God of War II - God of War III Remastered - God of War: Chains of Olympus - God of War: Ghost of Sparta Still need to play Ascension and God of War (PS4)
  7. The Ubisoft employee who reads this thread is going to have a great idea for the next patch lol
  8. Has anybody here on PSNP learned Java? If so, how did you do it?

     

    My Programming 1 class in college is not good at teaching it at all, at least to me. The professor immediately starts throwing around analogies and terminology that only those with previous programming experience would know. I can tell he knows what he’s talking about, but he’s just not able to convey this idea well to the students. There’s almost no organization in the lecture...no notes to read, no PowerPoint to go off of, nothing. He just talks incredibly fast as we stare at the desktop background being projected on the wall.

    /rant over

     

    Anyways, I’m going to have to take it upon myself to learn, since the lectures don’t do it for me. I’ve already ordered 2 books to help out, but does anybody know any helpful YouTube channels/websites to use as well?

      I took introduction to programming (it's not my major/specialist) but while I didn't learn java, I learnt about python but some concepts are quite similar

       

      1) google will become your best friend. If not, then he will during your uni life :P

      2) office hours, office hours, office hours help a ton. 

      3) shit load of patience and time 

       

      Good luck!

      Forgot to mention

       

      4) practice, practice, practice. 

       

      My course had 11 labs to do, 6 exercises, and 3 assignments and an exam. It was a pain in the ass to do these as they took sooooo long but I suppose that's the only way to learn. They drilled it into my head.

      Java was one of the programming languages I learned toward my Computer Science degree.  I highly recommend asking for a private meet with the professor to discuss the class; that is what I did with a few of the professors that I was not able to connect with.  He gave me resources, including some stellar past students to speak with.  Also, the labs with other students gave me a chance to discuss the class, assignments and upcoming exams.  I found out there were other students that had the same problem.

      Hang in there; you'll find the majority of professors are very good.  I did use additional books for reference.

      Good supplemental sites are:

      https://www.edx.org/course/subject/computer-science

      https://www.coursera.org/courses?query=java

       

      Khan Academy is also good but doesn't have Java:
      https://www.khanacademy.org/computing/computer-programming

       

      But yeah... office hours are the best. And your professors will really appreciate that you're going.
      Labs are only going to help you with practical application, not theory... but practical application does sometimes help with theory...

  9. Base PS4 with 500 GB hard drive, which isn’t nearly enough room, but my 2TB external storage is more than enough now. Never going to buy a PS4 Pro, not worth it for the slight visual/performance upgrade. I’ll wait for the PS5 instead and see how that looks.
  10. Just bought some games off of the Holiday Sale:

      I was on the fence with AER, since it seems to be a game mainly played for the easy platinum. I watched about 3 minutes on YouTube and I loved how it looked, it seems to have a really peaceful atmosphere. Plus, transforming into a bird looks awesome :P

    3. Lorajet

      Lorajet

      It's a nice game as a break from some of the more intense games. But I agree with you; I was on the fence for this one, too.

      YES! Get Even needs so much more love.

  11. Thanks for the badges, they look great @BigHonkingOne and thanks for hosting the event @eigen-space Surprised I managed to finish 4 of my games for the challenge, really happy that I was able to get that many done too
  12. https://www.thurrott.com/xbox/192184/microsofts-building-a-disc-less-xbox-one-for-release-in-2019# There are rumors going around that Microsoft will be releasing an XBOX sometime in 2019 that has no disc drive, relying solely on digital games. "The goal with the new console is to lower the price point for the hardware. Currently, it costs about $299 to buy into the Xbox One family of devices, Microsoft is looking to lower that price by possibly as much as $100; the new console price point is expected to be $200 or less." And for those that already have an extensive XBOX physical games collection: "In addition to the new console, there will be a ‘disc-to-digital’ program that, as the name states, turns your physical games into digital downloads. The idea is that you can take your disc to a participating retailer (like the Microsoft store) and trade in your disc for a digital download." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It's nice that they're providing that "disc-to-digital" program, but I don't really see the point of it for current XBOX owners. As far as I can tell, it sounds like it will still be a current-gen XBOX being released, but just at a lower price due to its all-digital nature. What do you guys think? I personally think it's nice to see that they're releasing this for current-gen in order to give people who have wanted to try some XBOX games a chance to get the console even cheaper, as long as they don't mind having a digital collection. However, I just hope that they don't make all next-gen XBOX consoles disc-less. I really enjoy having a physical collection and being able to truly own my games, not just purchasing a license for them. I'm okay with digital games, but I always prefer physical over digital. Plus, it's nice to build up a collection you can admire, not just some additional game icons on your screen.
  13. I'm confused. Are you saying that you played the game on this account when your HDD broke, and then later on you found an old save on PS+ for that same account and used your own save to finish DS1? If that's the case, using your old save wouldn't pop any additional trophies for you, since you would've already earned them back before your HDD broke. For example, you mentioned miracles. If you had a save on PS+ that had all of the miracles unlocked, wouldn't you have unlocked the trophy for that back when you DID it on that old save before your HDD broke? Then, when downloading your save from the PS+ cloud, nothing new would've popped. Am I not understanding this correctly? I could be wrong, but that's the way I'm reading this right now. Also, I've never played the game, so I can't accurately judge the timestamps. EDIT: Per the rules of what constitutes a flag: Using a save file to auto-unlock trophies - If you use an external save file to auto-unlock trophies or advance you further into the game and the impossibility of normal circumstance can be proven via the timestamps, it's flaggable. This includes using your own save file to unlock trophies at an impossible time frame, be careful with this, always sync your trophies, and do not use your save file to earn trophies impossibly out of order. If you auto-popped trophies with a save you had from a different account on your new account, it would still constitute a flag. There's just no way to prove that the save was yours instead of somebody else's.
  14. UPDATE #3 1. God of War: Chains of Olympus: 0% --> 100% 2. God of War: Ghost of Sparta: 11% --> 100% 3. God of War: Ascension 4. Spider-Man 5. Far Cry 3 6. Watch_Dogs 7. LEGO Marvel Avengers: 47% --> 80% I've been playing lots of other games over the past two weeks like Battlefield V and Assassin's Creed Syndicate, but I did manage to carve out some time to tackle LEGO Marvel Avengers some more! I just finished up all of the collectibles in the Manhattan hub area (which is massive) so all that's left is some of the smaller hub areas to complete and then the 100% is mine! I'm currently at 87.0% completion in-game so I expect to have this done within the next day or two... (hopefully)? Afterwards, I'll probably finish up Battlefield V's War Stories on Hardcore. So far, I have one of them done on Hardcore, I just have another two (and I'm hoping it doesn't make me rip my hair out). Odds of me completing my list? Pretty low. But I'm sure that I can get at least 5 of these done by the time the challenge ends.
  15. So I just managed to get every gold brick in Manhattan in LEGO Avengers... or so I thought. The counter reads "139/140" but I have absolutely no more gold bricks marked on my map. I turned off the gold brick detector, quit out of the game, and turned it back on, to no avail. I've looked all over the internet and I see nothing about having absolutely no more gold bricks marked on the map.

     

    The only solution I can think of is that one of them just didn't get marked (hopefully this is the case) and I'll have to go through with a YouTube video and find every location all over again, which is a real drag (especially if it doesn't solve the problem).

     

    If this makes the platinum impossible for me, I'm really going to have to reevaluate just how much I want 100% in this game, because I don't think it's worth putting in another 25+ hours to get this one trophy (and hope that it doesn't glitch out again).

      not sure if this may help but any races that you possibly missed. sometimes they don't mark well on the map and there might be one in the water or sky (lego marvel superheroes had a few like that. youtube may also help find the one remaining.

      I still have about ~13 races left in the Manhattan hub, but those only give out vehicle tokens, not gold bricks ;(

       

      And I already got 13/13 for saving all of the Stan Lee’s so it’s not an issue with him either.

    4. ResoluteRock

      I just found it! Turns out, I'm dumb. I was flying around and saw I could enter Avengers Tower, and it reminded me of how the SHIELD Helicarrier counts as "Manhattan" hub. I was 99% sure I got everything on the Helicarrier, but the second I entered it marked my final gold brick. The reason I didn't see it marked while I was flying around Manhattan is because it doesn't show what's inside the SHIELD Helicarrier on the map because it's a different area, although it still counts as Manhattan. :facepalm:

       

      Crisis averted.
