  1. Just a heads up to say I may have found something previously unmentioned about this trophy. The trophy requires you to play 3 hero cards in the same round and also win the match. I played 2 consecutive games where I had 3 hero cards, played them in the same round (also both instances were in the 3rd round), and won both matches, yet I didn't get the trophy. Then I noticed that, in both cases, I had a Mysterious Elf spy card, which leads me to believe that only hero cards with a point value, played on your side of the table, count. For those wondering, there was also a case where I had an opponent use a Mysterious Elf card on me, and I used 2 hero cards, won the match, and that didn't work either (which further adds to my above point). Hope this helps. Happy gaming.
  2. This topic was made to balance the "Things you hate" topic. I searched and couldn't find a similar post. It's a shame that both negativity gets so much attention and positivity is so hard to find. So, what are some things you love? 1. When you're going to go to sleep and you first lay down in your bed after having a shower, put on all clean clothes and have all clean sheets, blankets and pillow cases. 2. A medium glass of perfect-temperature water when you're thirsty. 3. When it's winter and you wake up on your day off and, when you stick your foot out of the blanket, the room is cool but the temperature under the covers is juuust right and it feels like the comfiest, coziest it's ever been and then you realize you don't have to get up.
  3. I'm looking to compile a list of the trophy sites on the internet. I kindly ask the members of this community to share what sites they are aware of. So far, I have: 1. psnprofiles 2. playstationtrophies 3. truetrophies 4. psntrophyleaders 5. ps3trophies 6. allps3trophies 7. exophase 8. playfire 9. yetanotherplatinum 10. psnleaderboard 11. raptr 12. ps3imports 13. Any others? Thanks.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Just a little rant/buyer beware with regards to this trophy. When you have chosen the Skillful Raider challenge in the menu, you can expect: 1. The amount of traps per crypt triples (from 5+ to 15+) and they increase with every crypt the closer you get to 5 in a row. This compounds the dumb RNG and makes it even more glaring (eg. You might need to pause and take a break after crypt #2 or #3 being such an emotional marathon, but then crypt #4 is like 45 seconds long and has 4 traps in total). 2. Even if you completely destroy a trap, there is a chance that it'll still reset after a few minutes spent in the crypt. 3. There is a chance that new/different traps will spawn on your way out that weren't there on your way in. Uuuhhh... What. The. Poop. 4. Even though the trophy states "...without getting CAUGHT in a trap," collapsible rock floors will void the challenge if you trigger them with anything other than a projectile (eg. step on it and jump away, or jump over it but your foot still touches the last rock). Yet, beyond confusingly, you can trigger the swinging spike traps with your feet by dodging over it and rolling away and it will not void the challenge. 5. If you have the skill to make traps glow red in hunter vision, sometimes collapsible rock floors glow an icy blue (making it hard to decipher from other lights shining on floor) and the sliding foot clamp traps do not glow at all. Paradoxically, using hunter vision actually makes them more difficult to see. 6. You will experience new crypt layouts that weren't in the main game, or previous hours spent in the endurance mode. 7. Even with a full belly and full food reserves, some crypts are so tedious/you'll be so cautious going in and out, that you'll still be in the yellow by the time you get back to the entrance, so make sure to stock up full before entering. 8. The overall difficulty of the forrest increases exponentially by day 2-3 (ie. nothing but bears/leopards, limited natural resources, low ammo drops, flamethrower/armoured/deathless enemies). 9. All of these apply even on the lowest difficulty setting. 10. None of these apply if you don't select the Skillful Raider challenge in the menu. I had done about 40-50 crypts in a row without getting caught in a single trap but, since turning on this challenge, getting to 4 in a row is very rare. 10 attempts in (and still can't get 5 in a row) and I realized I had to write this post. I hope this helps someone prepare for what's ahead or, at the very least, gives them someone to commiserate with when it happens to them, they're just as shocked as I was, and go looking on the internet for answers as to what the fuck is going on with this motherfucking cocksucking sumbitch ass bullshit slut of a random difficulty spike. EDIT: Like with all internet gaming rants, as soon as I wrote this post, I went back to try again and several things were different. I've never seen traps glow so vibrantly before. How can my game function a certain way for 100hrs+, and then be completely different mere minutes after complaining to the internet?
  7. Even on the lowest difficulty setting (student), I'm getting beaten handily as soon as I hit level 6 of the Master Shifu tower (1v1v1 against Rhino and Wolf). I'm considering that I'm a rookie and still learning but, I'm talkin' getting my ass swiftly handed to me on the easiest difficulty, as soon as the level starts. The kind of domination where it makes you wonder "What the hell just happened?" Is anyone else finding this to be their experience too? If you've figured it out, do you have any tips for scoring points or ring outs more effectively?
  8. :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! :) 

  9. :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.

    3. Pray_4_the_End


      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. :)

  10. 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 

    1. Cleggworth


      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.

  12. :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! :) 

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

  14. :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! :) 

  15. 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. :( 

  16. :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. :)

  17. Thank you for the kind words, and you're correct. Nice find. I'll add it to the list. Thanks.
  18. 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.

  19. :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. :) 

  20. 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.

  21. Aww that sucks. I was hoping you had liked the game. Did you enjoy playing Gwent?
  22. Congrats on the Army of Two platinum. :)

  23. My average trophy rarity is now down to 45.0%. Lowering my average rarity by 5%, while simultaneously raising my completion percentage by 5%, is even more noteworthy when you consider the fact that it was done after hitting 11,000 trophies.

    1. AJ_Radio


      That's better than most. 45 percent average rarity is actually pretty good nowadays.

  24. :platinum: #176 & 100% #211 - Heavy Rain. It's a pretty satisfying feeling to see this one fall, after leaving it only a few trophies short, 6 years ago. 2021's exclusive assault on the backlog gets yet another wicked roundhouse kick to the chops. :)
