  1. Trips haven’t stopped me. Children haven’t stopped me. Even surgery hasn’t stopped me!

     

    For the past 5 years, I’ve gotten at least one trophy a day every single day. That’s 1827 consecutive days now, since beginning July 30th, 2015. Crazy.

  2. >tfw it's been 4 months since Far Cry 4 DLC was on sale

     

    This crap drives me crazy. There is no way I will pay 15 bucks for that DLC. But I also don't want to leave a game unfinished. What do?

      Write them a note, or speak with your wallet. The dlc is not worth $15, and it was only offered separately because of greedy business practices. Your desire for 100% is exactly the idiosyncrasy they're hoping to exploit and capitalize on. Leave the game incomplete until there's a sale in the future, while simultaneously attempting to grow as a person, and realize that trophies aren't the be all and end all of gaming. It's a hobby. Have fun! :) 

  3. Sometimes you can pre-order fake e-peen enlargement, and then you might receive it before release date. There's also situations where you get results before expected achievement date.

    I am determined to get at least 1 crown today :D

  5. Trophy "hunters" really buying one shitty indie game for 6 different regions just to milk easy trophies out of it. If you want to become better, fight harder enemies.

    1. effdeegee

      effdeegee

      I think the scenario you've described is when "hunter" graduates to "whore." It's a shame when I see a big number like 200 plats and, upon deeper inspection, I see that 100 of them are just several dozen instances of stacking 1hr games with 95% rarity. Then I just chuckle and shake my head.

  6. 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 😂

      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:

  7. :platinum: #165 & 100% #200 - Batman: The Enemy Within. Probably the worst TellTale game available. Weak story, minimal interaction, no emotional connection, no humour, wasn't dark/gritty; it just felt very rushed. 6 plats in 40 days. :) 

    1. effdeegee

      @Spaz I thought it was okay as well. TWD seems to be the benchmark for most TT gamers, and for good reason. I mean, c'mon, who didn't cry at the end? xD

       

      @PooPooBlast I agree that the first Bruce Wayne was kind of off, but the game was pretty cool in a several other ways. I feel like that is what saved/elevated it. He's not so bad in the second one (more like bad overacting), but it also lacks in almost every other strong category from the first one, so it just takes away from the experience.
       

      @MidnightDragon I liked it too, but having the previous 5 or 6 games be great, then having this one just be good, technically would still make it the least of the set. It's like having a bunch of 8/10's and one 7/10; it is the lowest, but still decent.

       

      TWD - emotional

      Borderlands - funny

      TWAU - morbid/dark/gritty twist on fairy tales

      Batman 1 - Batman! + new/unique TT mechanics

      Batman 2 - same as the first one, but less of everything

  8. :platinum: #164 - Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. 85hrs of "meh." I'm renaming Origins and Odyssey as "O O," as in, "Oh Oh! Assassin's Creed isn't Assassin's Creed anymore." There wasn't even a hidden blade in this one. :blink:
     

    I still managed to score :silver: #2,500 and PSN Level 41. :)

      @XchocomanX Full blown RPG, and there seems to be a heavier focus on microtransactions and splitting up DLC.

  9. Platinum Update time;

    It's time to start Assassin's creed 3. My final game to get the platinum/100% for this series. 

    After getting a bunch of easy stuff the past week I felt like it's time to test my skill and patience again. 

     

    Deadline: 17th of July. Why? Ghost of Tsushima! Who am I kidding though I'll give it a max of 12 days to platinum AC3 :awesome:

     

    It's going to look so sweet in this list! :platinum:

  10. I think at the moment it would be best to take a break away from everything, including this site. I've suffered from severe depression for many years and lately i've been finding myself in a pretty bad mindset.

     

    Basically to sum it up, i'm not the nicest person to myself in my head. My issues stem from a place of massive insecurity and self doubt and i've gone nearly my entire life thinking everyone is better than I am and i'll never amount to anything because that's what I was told when I was growing up. I cope with this by having an extremely tongue in cheek sense of humour but lately i've seen this bleed into my personality and even my trophy hunting. It can come across as quite egotistical to people that don't know me, it's an unhealthy way to cope with things and I know it needs to stop.

     

    I've never been the type of person to have an ego, I've never been proud of anything that i've done in all honesty. I don't want to put myself onto a pedestal and I don't want anyone else to do it for me, i'm just a dude with no life that likes to get trophies to make myself feel better, that's it. If you've come across me on Discord or on here and thought i'm an egotistical piece of shit then I apologise, that isn't who I am, it isn't who I want to be. I want to be someone that encourages self-improvement, someone that can make a difference.

     

    Sorry for venting but this has been something that's been bothering me for a while. I won't be back here for a while unless it's to announce that i've finished Necrodancer (once i'm done with Necrodancer i'm quitting trophies for a while). I'll still be a tiny bit active on Discord so you can find me there if you need me.

      Start doing things that will benefit others in need. It'll help both your depression and your urge to write things like this status update. Stay strong. :)

  11. :platinum: #162 & 100% #198 - LEGO Ninjago Movie: The Videogame. Out of the 16 LEGO games I've played, this is easily one of the lesser instalments, but you just can't beat the price of "free."

    1. effdeegee

      @Froopy the Cowbear I think there's actually something like 50 LEGO games.

      Just Googled. I am friggin' flipping out right now. Thanks for the heads up!

  13. Some of the biggest cringe has to be when you see a YouTuber make a top 10 most difficult trophies video then they include trophies like Challenge of the Gods from God of War 1 in their list. I take those lists with a grain of salt because they often stick things like Injustice and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 in there, they’re outdated in terms of where they’d rank in the most difficult trophy list at this point.

      The elevator challenge in God of War 1 was a right pain in the bumski. :lol:

      I just got a message from the Government of Canada and they said that 300 :platinum: is now off limits due to Covid19 restrictions and potentially extreme levels of awesomeness. So sorry for your loss. I'll leave you to grieve. :P:)

  15. :platinum: #160 & 100% #196 - Ratchet & Clank PS4. Burnout caused me to stop playing and eventually sell the game, while 3 trophies short of the platinum, more than 2 years ago. I just found it for $5 and thought I'd finally revisit it and finish it off. :)

  18. okay seriously what the fuck was Respawn thinking with this "New Game +" mode in Jedi Fallen Order ? You get one new costume and lightsaber color and you keep all the skins, outfits and lightsaber parts but you have to unlock ALL skills again, find all secrets again and get all stim canisters again.

    This is such BULLSHIT. Do they even know what New Game+ means ??

    also the fact that you can not skip cutscenes at all is so damn outdated. This is a basic feature in almost all modern games. Why would they do this ?!

    1. effdeegee

      Probably part of the contract they signed with the Devilisney that states their currency/residuals will be based on hours per soul wasted. :lol: I can't wait to play it, but NG+ can suck me bum.

  20. 445 trophies in 68 days. Thanks, Covid! :) 

  21. I hate missables so much. Makes things annoying. Just in general, not even exclusive to trophies but that certainly doesn’t help.

      I share in the grief. Missables are nothing but a big poop suck.

  22. God of War - PS4

     

    OK just started this game and Kratos loses his shit on his son for firing 1 arrow in haste...me flashing back to God of War 3 beating Cerberus on Hard by shooting about 2000 arrows as quickly as I could :P

     

    Also why aren't :square: and :triangle: the attack buttons. I am not usually one of those people that complain about games doing something different but those are Kratos' attack buttons...it is weird not using them.

  23. Save file just corrupted in The Witcher III. The fun just keeps on going... :facepalm:

    1. effdeegee

      effdeegee

      It was a very simple fix, but still very annoying. If you're wondering what to do if/when this happens to you, know that it's the autosave file that corrupts. To remedy, make a new manual save, close the game, go to system settings and delete the corrupted file, then open the game and load the manual save.

       

      One of the reasons why all of these technical issues (audio cutting out, getting a prompt to say corrupted save every 60sec, etc.) are so infuriating is that they happen during plot-heavy, main story missions and cutscenes.

       

      Another is that it's been happening across all platforms, for 5 years, and they still don't fix it. It's like they made a billion dollars, got a tv spinoff, then said "Fuck you. Got mine." and left their unfinished mess for the consumers.

       

      The worst thing is the hype machine. People that called this the GOTY, or best game ever made, are much too forgiving. I expect better from devs. I'd rather play a mediocre game that functions properly, than a massive AAA title that's riddled with bugs.
