  1. Good news, I got a new PS4 thanks to my dad ordering one online. I owe me $300 as it's a newly minted PS4, probably a PS4 Slim. Bad news - I can't transfer anything from my old PS4 because it's, well, fried. That means I lost all of my save data and I'd have to play through all my games again, which is painful for my Kingdom Hearts progress and sets me back years. So I am just shutting this thread down for good and working on a new account. I am not going to tell anyone what this new account is because I don't intend to be participating in any community events on this new account except privately. I'm sorry, everyone. I hope you all enjoy E3 and the PS4 games coming out, including a remaster of the original Ni no Kuni for PS4 and a plain port for the Nintendo Switch. Farewell for good this time.
  2. Okay thanks. I am working towards a replacement for the PS4 and TV but it will cost me a bit. So far I've found that most used PS4s go around $300. Thanks for the advice.
  3. My PS4 and TV both died gruesome deaths because a lightning bolt hit my house. I knew it was raining but didn't expect a power surge. So I am pretty much stuck with only my PS3 downstairs until I see how much I have to pony up to pay for a replacement PS4. I can't afford a PS4 Pro AND new TV, no matter how much my dad loves me. Stupid Mother Nature. Sorry, have to vent to someone. (Oddly enough, nothing else got hit with the power surge, only my PS4 and TV got fried. I think the divin entity above is telling me that I need to stick with Pokemon as my go-to game instead of wasting my money and life hunting trophies.)
  4. This is my final post in the forums forever. I have to retire from trophy hunting, not by choice. Just minutes ago, a power surge fried my PS4 and my TV so they can't turn on any more. I've tried plugging them into other sockets which were not hit but the light that powers on the PS4 isn't showing and my TV won't turn on no matter how many times I press the power switch. I guess it was for the best they both died. These devices were over five years old and showing their age. Probably the best for me too: I am no longer enjoying playing Playstation games because I am a completionist and the trophy system ruined my experience with some games. Maybe I should stay with Pokemon and whatnot. At least most of the games I loved on PS4 can be played on Switch, though no more Ni no Kuni. And I could trophy hunt... but with my Vita's charging dock busted and not charging, all I have is the PS3, and most of the games there are frustration central. I do long Mugen Souls but I am not eager to earn the platinum for that or its sequel. At the least, I am going to take a long break and just play Pokemon games until I can assess the damage and how much I am going to be in the poorhouse to replace my devices. I have a loving and generous father, but he stated I have to pay for my own games, he's just the taxi service to Best Buy. *sigh* Karma is a bi***. As such, I won't be updating this thread anymore. Farewell! (And I am asking for this thread to be locked so I don't have to hear negative comments from people who have issues with this message.)
  5. Unfortunately, I am forced to drop out. Mother Nature hated me not playing Pokemon so she sent a lightning bolt to hit my house. Luckily, most of the damage was sucked up by a lightning rod... but a power surge ripped through my PS4, killing it instantly. It's dead, I can't power it on, nor can I power on my TV. So I can't play any more PS4 games until I pony up $1000 for a new PS4 and TV to replace the ones I have. It really sucks. Good luck to everyone else.
  6. Minecraft is a freaking hydra, man! I am so glad I didn't get into that. Anyways, the Pokémon Direct came out showing off more Sword and Shield and the legendaries(I knew they were lupines, you don't put the head of a wolf on your title and expect people to expect anything else ) and this new Kaiju mechanic called Dynamax so now I am going to be playing Pokémon to catch up so I can get ready for the November release date. Might order the dual pack too. As such, I am probably going to go on trophy hunting hiatus, maybe even retirement. Trophy hunting isn't as great as it used to be, I will probably downgrade it from serious business to once a week hobby. Nintendo is just completely crushing trophy hunter's hopes and dreams with all their new content. However, I still want to try out the Ni no Kuni II DLC and I have yet to make good on my promise to complete Dragon Quest XI.
  7. Oh yeah, definitely. I got too frustrated with the timing and just got rid of this game. Shame, it's very beautiful and I got everything else with a guide. If they had given me more time, I would have gotten it.
  8. My heart is just not getting into this trophy hunting thing anymore. With the House of Mario promising more interesting things(Super Mario Maker 2, Candence of Hyrule, etc.) and with Yu-Gi-Oh fanfiction being exciting again, Platinum Trophies needs a new spin on things to make me interested in them again, so I am employing a bouncer to keep out unwanted titles... Bowser: Let's see... your name is Nioh 2, you're based in ancient Japan with samurai action... hmm, I used to be a samurai in a previous life, sort of inspired my house in Super Mario Odyssey... okay, what's your credentials? Nioh 2: (hands over resume) Bowser: Hmmmm... hmmmm... hold up. (Nioh 2 cocks a brow.) Your difficulty is 11/10. You're one of those Souls games, aren't you? (narrows eyes angrily) Nioh 2: (cusses violently in Japanese) Bowser: Sorry, bub. We don't DO Souls games here. (whistles and two Sledge Bros escort the screaming Nioh 2 into the streets) NEXT! (Just a little humor. ) Don't get me wrong. I do want to play some of the games like Ni no Kuni 2, Final Fantasy XII TZA, and many more, but it is going to take the will of the gods to get myself to go through them.
  9. Yeah, I am going there too. I don't feel the energy to do any more panels as they are all going to take a while. Still, i have half a year left so who knows? (dark foreshadowing) Okay, who ever is doing that... stop it. (My mini-me quickly hides the dark foreshadowing and whistles innocently. 😬)
  10. It's Summer Time! (Reverie): Blessing (Secret of Mana): 12% Movement (Seasons After Fall): Lady Songkran (Bonds of the Skies): Spend Time With Family (LEGO Jurassic World - Vita): Play Together (Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch): 8% => 16% Release the Fish and Bird (Dark Cloud): A New Year, New You (Ratchet and Clank): 11% I earned a few more trophies in Ni no Kuni, am at the part where I need to find the Sky Pirates. Doing some quests to get merit rewards. Should be back tomorrow to do some more rebooting... I mean, trophy hunting for my other games! EDIT: Turns out the plane back to Austin runs on fumes, so my parents won't return me home until tonight. Hopefully I won't have to feed my sister's dogs again. Anyways, won't be back with my PS4 until tonight and probably won't want to game until tomorrow, then I have gym and groceries(I need to restock ASAP as my bread is probably Mold Central by now).
  11. Wizard101 should learn a lot about boss design from this game. Their later worlds are so damn annoying to go through because their bosses cheat a lot. I've never actually liked South Park myself though I did see a few episodes, including one including World of Warcraft as part of a presenation in a game design college course(luckily, we were all adults so it didn't bother us too badly), I guess I grew out of the "10-year old juvenile delinquent who thinks boobs and butts are hilarious" phase, probably after watching two episodes of Beavis and Butthead(which was the original immature cartoon; MTV used to be my go-to when I was 10 because I loved watching music videos ). I might as tolerated playing Stick of Truth had it not used profanities in its trophy list. I gues I am a person that feels embarrassed by having trophy descriptions which have the S- or F-Bomb in them. (Then again, I am turning 47 this year, so I am probably too old to giggle like an immature 10 year old. Not saying all 10 years olds are immature. I pray my nephew and niece don't act that way when they hit ten years of age, Michael James is nearing that point.) Glad you got another game out of the way, Cass.
  12. Just got one more trophy. I'll try to update more often after I get back home, I'll hope back on and try to work on my PS4 titles. The only categories I don't have are Asian Traditional and Peaceful. Since a lot of people are putting EZPZ puzzle games for Peaceful, I might do it with a Pic-A-Pix game. I have Akiba's Beat on Vita but my Vita is busted and I can't charge the battery.
  13. Sadly, that is the main case with most of these games. I don't think the devs hate your guts - it's just that they have to go back and update the patch after the newest one breaks the game and makes the platinum trophy impossible, which is SERIOUS BUSINESS for most of us. Great job on another bug-ridden game. Me, I am trying to get trophies in Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, but I am not really eager to climb an active volcano and fight a fire demon who hates your guts. I only brought my PS3 to my parents' house to force myself to get some progress on that game. I can't believe I am not as happy playing this game as I used to be.
  14. Forgot to update for Spend Time With Family - I finally platinumed the Vita version of LEGO Jurassic World. I also got two trophies for Ni No Kuni. Will try to get more for that game since that's the only game I have access to for the rest of the week. (Housesitting for my parents and sister)...
  15. Oh, didn't see that. Sorry about that. 😒 Well, if it's just a trophy it is a bit easier,. but some of those challenges are still a bit difficult.
