  1. To Hell with everyone at Psyonix and Epic for this fucking piece of trash. Gotta love the game freezing and crashing, during a casual match, twice in an hour, and then I get banned for "frequently abandoning the team." AND you want money from me? LOOOOOOOL get fucked. EDIT: Even though I've redownloaded/installed the game, it has frozen/crashed 5 times in 3 days. The bans are now up to 2hrs long.
  2. :platinum: #182 & 100% #214 - Beyond: Two Souls. Another satisfying addition to the backlog's newly bereft. I enjoyed it a bit more, this time around. Feels good now that this and Heavy Rain are both done. Second :platinum: in 5 days! :) 

  3. :platinum: #181 - Dante's Inferno. It's not a 100% (delisted dlc), but it's still very satisfying to go back and lift it from the depths of the backlog. I doubt I'll go out of my way to find the "super bundle" from another country, so the game will most likely sit for the foreseeable future as just the platinum. I think I'll continue 2021's exclusive assault on the backlog through this year as well. :)

      Congrats! I too never played the DLC, but I heard that it was pretty difficult.

      I've got Dante's Inferno in the PS3 back log, hoping to get to it some time in the near future. Game was awesome from what I remember, congrats on the plat though!

      Well done dad. :)


      Safe to say I think Dante's Inferno should of got a full remake exclusively on PS5. :)

  4. Well, 2021's exclusive assault on the backlog has finally come to a close, so let's take a look at the final results, shall we? :) 


    :bronze: 7,445 - 7,885 (+440)

    :silver: 2,550 - 2,680 (+130)

    :gold: 737 - 780 (+43)

    :platinum: 166 - 180 (+14)

    100% 200 - 213 (+13)


    They're not the biggest numbers, but I prefer to look at the fine details.


    1. I spent ~$100 on gaming during the entire year (about 40/30/30 for DLC, PS+, and used PS3 games, respectively). Not a single new game bought, or started; 100% backlog only.

    2. I was working suicide watch for several months while my buddy was going through a divorce (literally packed my bag, locked my door, and then slept on his couch 24/7).

    3. I broke my dominant hand and couldn't hold a controller for 3 months. :jaymon: 

    4. I dropped my unearned from 4,600 - 4,000.

    5. I raised my completion percentage from 66% - 72%.
    6. I lowered my average rarity from 49% - 44%.


    The last two are my favourite because, as I've stated before, these were done after hitting 11,000 trophies. When you're already 300,000 points deep in the lifestyle, your stats are pretty much solidified where they're at; 15 points for a bronze does nothing. It takes 3-4 bronze to move your completion percentage by 0.01%, and their rarity needs to be super low in order to budge the entrenched average rarity stat.


    Well, that's that. I'm fairly content with the year's haul. I could've had one more platinum, but Watch_Dog 2's servers aren't connecting for some reason. :dunno: 


    Thanks for reading. Happy New Year, and happy gaming! <3:)<3

      Those are some pretty nice numbers, well worth celebrating. Maybe by bringing back The Lottery??? That was such a good event

    2. effdeegee


      @Cleggworth Thanks for the kind words, :) but I think The Lottery should stay asleep in its bed. The forums and website seem to be doing just fine without it.

  5. :platinum: #180 - Tom Clancy's The Division. Another satisfying one to get. The RPG elements are very good. I was not, however, a fan of the rogue mechanic in the Dark Zone; it made for some terribly frustrating moments because people can be nasty thieving jerks. Third :platinum: in 8 days! :) 

  6. Thanks for the help. Congrats on your new plat. :) 

  7. :platinum: #179 - Far Cry 5. It felt nice to finally finish off the platinum in this one. I've always been a huge Ubisoft fanboy, and Far Cry is one of their heavier hitters. Unless the DLC goes on sale for super cheap in the future, I don't see me pushing for the 100% anytime soon. Second :platinum: in 4 days! :) 

  8. I managed to knock out all of Battlefield 1's mp trophies in 24hrs, but I'll have to retract my prediction of getting 2-3 more platinums by year's end because Watch_Dogs 2 never connects with Ubisoft's servers. :(

    1. zizimonster


      Are you experiencing the same issue? This is what I did to resolve it. :)


    2. effdeegee


      @zizimonster Thanks for the help, but that doesn't appear to be my problem. I've searched every forum post, on every platform, checked Google for everything, tried every solution, contacted every Ubisoft support option, and am logged into every possible Ubisoft service, yet it just won't connect to their multiplayer servers. :( 

  9. :platinum: #178 - Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. After going the entire year spending less than $45 in the PS Store (on dlc only; no new games because 2021 was/is exclusively backlog), I decided to splurge a little and bought 3 months of PS+ ($30) so I could work on several PS4 games that had multiplayer trophies. Even with only a couple of weeks left in the year, I should still be able to snag 2-3 more platinums and make a lot of progress on other games with mp trophies before we hit 2022. :)

  10. Thank you for the kind words, and you're correct. Nice find. I'll add it to the list. Thanks.
  11. I've been playing this game for a while now and I'm finding nothing but problem after problem. This post will probably be edited later, as it seems likely that more crap will be uncovered, but for now, these are the initial technical failures. 1. Donated to NBA Cares (four times) - didn't unlock trophy. 2. Hit a game-winning shot at the buzzer - didn't unlock trophy. 3. Game freezes every time I accept a contract extension. 4. I've completed 4 milestones and haven't gotten credit for them. 5. I was the leading vote-getter for the All-Star Team - wasn't a starter. 6. Playing in the All-Star game reset all of my streaks (one was at 24 of 25). 7. Several instances of not keeping correct stats. 8. I won the league MVP and my popularity dropped from 95% to 64%. 9. Every 3-4 games, you receive a blank social media message, which causes the menus to bug out. 10. Music has stopped playing even though no volume controls were changed. 11. Made it to 9/10 goals to make the Hall of Fame, and now it freezes every time I try to play another game. 12. I scored 5 in 5 different stats (twice) - didn't unlock trophy. 13. I held the opponent scoreless for the final 2 minutes - didn't unlock trophy. 14. I had (more than) 10 blocks - didn't unlock trophy. Add those to the mountain of annoying things that happen during every section of the game, and it just seems like more 2K garbage. There's no way a game can be have this amount of problems. At this point, it just feels like I'm being trolled.
  12. NBA 2K13 - Just gonna leave this here as a painful reminder of the time that I clawed back from being 13 points down in the 4th quarter and, with only 0.8 seconds left on the clock for the final inbound, got the ball and immediately threw up a prayer 3-pointer to win the championship. :jaymon: Then was crushed when the "Buzzer Beater" trophy didn't unlock. :(  :angry:  :spank: Fuck you yet again, 2K. I can't stop this feeling of wanting you to burn in Hell.

  13. :platinum: #177 & 100% #213 - Batman: The TellTale Series (PS4). I downloaded the first episode for free 3 years ago, and the season pass just went on sale for $5, so I figured I could quickly knock this one out of the backlog and forget about it. :) 

  14. 100% #212 - Fallout 4. The season pass went on sale for $12, so I jumped at the chance to finally take down this backlog behemoth. Seeing the playing of this game come to an end is oddly bittersweet, as I thoroughly enjoyed my time in post-apocalyptic Boston, and consider it to be one of the better games I've played, but also loathe Bethesda as a company, and now have no need to give them any money for the foreseeable future. :jaymon:

      I'm the same. Fallout 4 isn't a bad game. Spent over 110 hours on it, glad to finally get this one done too.

  15. Aww that sucks. I was hoping you had liked the game. Did you enjoy playing Gwent?
