5pm passed in Germany which means it's been two months now since I've been cutting myself for the (hopefully) last time, after more than a year of doing so.
Still some scars left, but it's not the bloody mess it's used to be anymore.
I want to thank the community to making me feel like someone actually cares about me after my fiancé died and the two fallouts I had with her and my family.
Been a long time since I could honestly say that my mental health is going in the right direction!Spoiler
I've did an EIGHT! HOURS! grinding session yesterday ... just to be 1/3 of the way done.
90% my amazing green rubber band and 10% me when driving a few laps here and there.
Currently at 14.500 and a few km / 40.075km distance driven.
Just 65 more 99 lap races around Indy.
Which means - I only need to turn left another 25k times (or right if I do Indy Reversed) and the Around the Globe and GRID platinum are mine!
I enjoy the Codemasters racing games a lot (mostly F1) but this trophy takes my personal top spot as most grindy and the one I hate the most.
If I'm not mistaken it would still take ~ 90h if you could create a custom all straight track that is.
26th of March if I can keep the streak of at least 1 race a day up. That's when I'm done. Hopefully sooner.
We have 13 in common 01: Infamous First Light 02: Infamous Second Son 03: Driveclub 04: Driveclub Bikes 05: Rocket League 06: Mad Max 07: Mafia 3 08: Horizon Zero Dawn 09: God of War 10: The Order 1886 11: Witcher 3 GOTY 12: Far Cry 4 13: Saints Row 4
After failing like a millon times trying to get 21 Awesome Ratings in the Lego Movie Game Dance Minigame I've done it!
But I'll never be able to get this song out of my head again!EVERYTHING IS AWESOMEEVERYTHING IS COOL WHEN YOUR PART OF A TEAMEVERYTHING IS AWESOME
I just noticed today that the trophy somehow glitched on me. I had it unlocked but the actual career milestone in game wasn't unlocked. don't know why. But I've managed to beat it now, final time is a 1:38,7. I was lucky once with the shortcut at the start of the final sector The lap was far from perfect too, I'll share a video in the spoiler tag at the end if anyone Those are my tuning settings: Back to grinding miles now. YAAAAAAY
01. Black Flag 02. Brotherhood 03. AC 2 04 Freedom Cry 05. Revelations 06. Odyssey (Kassandra) 07. Valhalla 08. AC1 09. Liberation 10. Syndicate 11. Odyssey (Alexios) 12. Origins 13: AC3 Haven't played the games not listed. It's a close call for me between Black Flag and Brotherhood, the top 3 are all in S-Tier for me. Freedom Cry and Revelations aren't as good as the top tier, but they're memorable for their own reasons. Played Odyssey as Kassandra and Alexios, imo you can tell by the animations and voice acting that you're meant to play with Kassandra, the game is so much better. The pilgrim set (iirc) is broken, but you can just decide to not use it. DLCs made Odyssey a lot better too. Valhalla is another step up for the RPG games of the series, only some plot points made the game worse than Odyssey, maybe the DLCs will fix that. I've started AC1 after I've played Brotherhood for the first time, if you start with AC1 it's probably a way better expierence than it was for me. And now the bottom 4 ... well... Syndicate and Liberations are average, nothing more, nothing less. Some unique elements, but nothing impressive. The story of Origins is a mess, they throw in deaths of "important" people after a few moments after meeting them and you're supposed to care. I didn't. I bought the game because I was interested in Layla after playing Odyssey before Origins. And tbh, after I was done with the game I WAS STILL MORE INTERESTED IN THE MODERN ARC THAN THE ACTUAL GAME. AC3 is the same for me as Resident Evil 6 for fans of the RE franchise.
First time that I'm not making goals up as I go but actually put some thoughts into it.
- 90.00% completion rate (84,13% atm)
- 3250 unearned trophies (3974)
- 17000 trophies total (15594)
- 50 ultra rare trophies (48)
- 300 very rare trophies (198)
- stay above 6.00 trophies per day (6.00)
It's time to start digging out some games I've never finished and get that mountain of unearned trophies down a bit.
Getting a small milestone in UR's would be a nice touch too.(looking at you Worms Battlegrounds)
Current to do list:
- finish Dungeons 2 campaign
- Grind Around the Globe in GRID (21,25% done, ~ 7700 laps left to do
- get into Worm Ops in Worms Battlegrounds, get the DLC in a good sale for 100%
- complete NG+ Ultimate in Spider Man (PS5), buy all suits to pop Spider-Man Remastered as plat #500
- Witcher 3 Complete Edition whenever I find the time, complete all Stacks for Witcher 3
- Finish Dying Light with @Fnee2000
Other games that I'd like to finish / play this year:
- Skyrim (PS3)
- Borderlands 2 Fifth DLC (PS4)
- Borderlands (PS4)
- Horizon Zero Dawn DLC and NG+ (PS4)
- F1 2020 (PS4)
- Fallout 4 (PS4)
- Demon's Souls (PS5)
- Heavy Rain (PS4)
- Borderlands 3 (PS5)
- Hogwarts Legacy
- Horizon 2 Forbidden West
- Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
Yesterday's national holiday progess
Plat #480: Rainswept
I like Point & Click / Puzzle games, I really do.
But this game just wasn't for me, it's as basic as you can go with this kind of game.
Easy puzzles, no inventory. you just get a new button to press when the character acquiered the item needed.
Maybe I'll finish the story someday (probably not), sadly it's just a platinum grab at this point in time.
Plat #481 AC Valhalla
Made the joke yesterday, doing it again: viKING Legend!
The overall game was pretty solid and I'm happy that I've got this instead of Cyberpunk 2077. The game is another step up for the RPG AC series.
I don't like the modern story arc at all, and I hope that they maybe finish it with the DLC's. I don't think I can go another game with this... it doesn't work.
Also - bugs... so many bugs.
- 2 trophies glitched out, thankfully solved with a console restart.
- AI bugged out at least 4 times, stopped attacking just standing there. (Once during a boss fight)
- graphical issues
Oh, and I FUCKING HATE STONES NOW!
Plat #482 Maneater
I've wanted to get this game for a while now, thanks to PS+ I've got it for free.
And that's probably what saved this game for me. Paying 40 bucks for this? It's too short for that. It feels more like a Life is Strange episode than a full game.
But apart from that it's a solid game, I died a few times in the early stages, but once you've grown into the adult stage and unlock the first active skils there's nothing that's too difficult anymore.
Finished the story with the Shadow set and the Infame grind with the Bone set.
I might be the only one, but what I want is a modern time setting. I want all this modern arc to be finished and gone. Finish it, let the Assassins or Abstergo win. And after that, stop releasing games with a modern part in it at all. By now most things that made the modern story at least a bit interesting are gone. There's no bleeding effect for the main character, you don't have to be an ancestor of the person anymore, just get some DNA and you can be whoever you want to be.
That was my biggest fear going into launch day. I hope they can "find" it soon. It was my first release of any tech thing I've "joined" day one (or day 7 compared with NA) I've read all week about bugs with the system software, consoles getting "lost", packages being handled like shit (but that's the norm kinda) A friend of mine had to send his console back on day one aswell. Pre-ordered and picked it up as soon as the store opened, but the fan wasn't working like it's supposed to, his new console was as loud as my PS4.
It's been a while now, hasn't it? Mainly because I haven't made any progress. Not in Witcher 3, not in any other game on my list, or even any game on my profile. Mental health caught up with me once again. And got kicked when it was down by another fatal accident in my inner circle. But I've got my PS5 on international release day without any problems, no delievery misshaps, no system bugs, nothing. It was nice having something go smooth, with all what 2020 has done and my final months last year... I really like the new videos it's taking when you earn a trophy. Here's my very first plat for next gen: (SUB TO MY YOUTUBE FOR NO VIDEOS, BECAUSE EVERTHING I UPLOAD IS UNLISTED! ) Sadly you can't change the length of these videos for individual types of trophies Took nearly 2GB of disc space for the 50 trophies the game has. That's with the videos set to 15 seconds, there's an option for the videos to be 30 seconds long. I'd like to have the 30 seconds video for the platinum - the rest can be 15. I'll delete most of them anyway but every non quick plat game has at least one other trophy than the plat that I'm proud of achieving, so I always kept the screenshot (or video from now on.) Anyways, long story short: The PS5 feels like a breath of fresh air and made gaming for exciting for me again.
JayDeLosDioses replied to OmegaRejectz's topic in Mad MaxBeen a roller coaster ride for me: I've bought the game when the server shutdown was made public, I had it on my, let's call it extended wishlist. Nothing I really want to play, but something I want to get someday. Then I've played the first chapter, with the intention of getting the platinum as quick as I can, in case I need to start over. But I was hooked the moment I've started it. Combat is simple but fun, driving controls felt nice, only thing that was weird was the button layout. I've played until I had two scrap crews and stopped after that until the challenge was completed for it. Only starting the game once a day collecting my scrap, backed up my save on USB and started going for the camps and stuff while on my way to missions. Playing through the game was a lot of fun, until it wasn't anymore. There's a margin with collectibles in my opinion, and they went way overboard with it. Marked locations are a nice thing to have, but having to drive to a location for a single piece of scrap ... that's just not fun anymore. During the cleanup the game felt more like work than playing a game, checking if every camp is fine, every insigna counted, all wasteland missions correct, every scavening location registered ... not fun!
Platinum #455 The Age of Extinction - Nexomon: Extinction I'd say Nexomon is the best pokémon clone out there so far. It's a enjoyable 50h platinum with a surprisingly "low" rariity of 21%. There's nothing hard in the game, just a bit of RNG when hunting for the legendaries. But you'll have a catch rate of at least 60% for each, so that little bit of running around is still quicker than the 100 ball's I've thrown at that stupid shiny Zapdos that doesn't even look good ... Anyway onto the next: Witcher 3 - Complete Edition First of all: I'm a moron and forgot to edit in the link to the document I've wanted to share about Witcher 3, so here it is. Witcher 3 "Guide" - most of the things are already written either in guides on PSNP or other parts of the world wide web. Feel free to comment / suggest anything you want. There's a "walktrough" in it, that has half of the quests ordered in a way that you can't miss a single one, I've got lazy after working a few weeks on it tbh, but every quest with a missable trophy tied to it is already included. Currently working on a good route to pick up all Gwent cards, races and brawls without going out of my way too much while doing other quests. I've also already picked up the first 5 trophies for the game: Kaer Morhen Trained / What Was That? / Fist of the South Star / Let's Cook! / Power Overwhelming
Around 120h for the GOTY - it was my third most played game of 2019 and therefore listed in the recap But that's with all DLC included, so maybe 70h - 80h for the plat alone. I've made my own little guide too, missing the DLCs though But it includes: all quests what quests cancel out others all contracts (including the two I find easiest to do for Even Odds on Death March) what build I enjoyed playing the most breakdown of what raw materials are needed to craft gear / bombs and potions all gwent cards and NPCs good locations for the misc trophies I've also been sloppy with the side quests a bit at the end, only listing the few you need to do for better gear EDIT: However, I'm working on it again to include the second act of the game aswell. And somewhere down the road the DLC too. For the quests and cards I've used a lot of the wiki and just put it down in my own words. I like it more when I can change a guide while playing - either deleting what I've already done or simply adding my own expierence if I ever come back to a game again for whatever reason. I've uploaded it to google drive, you can take a look if you want. Just keep in mind that I've made it for personal use only, so not everything might be clear to others
Hellow everybody, it's a me, Jay. Using the Halloween sale to do something crazy! I am adding to my list: The Witcher 3 - Complete Edition Some of you might remember that I've played Witcher 3 - GOTY in my first backlog challenge exactly a year ago. For whatever reason the NA and EU version are called differentely and have extra trophy stacks, so a year and 10 days later... Added bonus: Getting the platinum or 100% for the NA version would also mean, that I've got the full set in 100% for the Witcher 3 base game, 100% for the Witcher 3 GOTY Edition and 100% for the Witcher 3 Complete Edition. I know that a lot of people frown when people stack the same game multiple times on their profile, but it's for one of the greatest games of this generation (and it's not quick and easy )
Update #4 Nexomon: Extinction 0% -> 50% (35 / 57 trophies) Well ... I've played a lot of Not Pokémon Pokémon this weekend. Maybe a bit too much. I think it's worth the 20 bucks I've paid for the game, but it's on the edge. 30 would be to expensive in my opinion. It's a cheap alternative to newer Pokémon games, looks awesome the monster design is funny and I like the names. There's a ghost type scarecrow called Prankcrow in the game. Or a evolution line with Baloompa and Blimpapa. The story is as expected, childish and not the best. You're a tamer in the guild, doing missions, working your way up, until you find out that your grandmaster is behind all the evil things that are happening with dragons and tyrants. The main character is a decendant from an ancient being and that's why he/she is the only person who can stop all of this. There's some difficulty spikes that requiere some grinding in the wild, at least for me, but I think that's not a bad thing. But who cares about the story, it's about collecting and training up your not pokémon collection, fighting with them. When fighting a wild nexomon you can either do the normal things, like attack, use an item, switch your nexomon or flee. Or you can feed and try to capture it. Each nexomon likes different kind of foods, increasing your capture chance by 10% - 40% depending on your choice. Then there's a different nexotrap for each type in the game increasing the capture chance by another 35% I think. There's also normal Nexotraps with a 15% capture chance and the golden nexotraps with 100% chance. You get a masterball for every other quest in the game. And then there`s a QTE while capturing that increases the chance by another 5% if you successfully complet it. You can see your exact capture chance on screen when choosing the nexotrap, sometimes it's cool, but it's frustrating if a 90% capture chance fails. The combat system is a pain for longer routes, they use a stamina system instead of costing pp every time an attack is used, each attack costs 5 - 50 stamina. You can choose to wait a turn in combat, increasing your stamina by 15. If you try attacking with a tired nexomon it only regenerates 10 points. Some fights are challenging not because your opponent is tough, but because your team member with the type advantage can't join the fight. Trophies earned: My First Nexomon / Learning the Ropes / Bronze Tamer / Silver Tamer / Gold Tamer / My First Day at Work / So Predictable / Welcome Back / Omnicron's Legacy / Renegade Jin / Renegade Lydia / Renegade Atlanta / Renegade Logan / Renegade Celine / I Hate My Job / Are We The Baddies? / Element of Fire / Element of Wind / Element of Water / Element of Thunder / Element of Earth / Element of Life / Downfall / A Dozen Down / You're a Celebtrity / Never Forget / Anger Management / Power of Science / Beam Me Up, Coco! / Vanity Issues / Full Team / Own 30 Nexomon / Own 60 Nexomon / Own 90 Nexomon (all )
Here's the update I've promised on Sunday: Last year my birthday platinum was a double stack for A Winter's Daydream, but this year: Mad Max 37% -> 100% I've defused the final mine this morning before work and unlocked my five missing trophies for Mad Max. I'm a bit proud of myself tbh, when the server shutdown was made public I decided to buy the game and a month later I'm done with a game that's in the top tier for gltiches in the AAA games category. And that's sad, because overall I'd rate it a 7 out of 10. The story was amazing, as soon as I was done with the scrap crews challenge and could actually play the game I've really started getting into the story. I'm talking about the ending, so avoid the spoiler if you're still playing But I'm deducting a point for how they handled the end with the free play integration after the story was completed. The second point is deducted for the collectibles ... sure they're marked on the map but there's sooooooooo many. I'm a big fan for collectibles, rewarding me as a player to search trough every corner of the map, but in Mad Max it reached the point where it felt more like punishment than enjoyment. Going into any scavenging location just for a single piece of scrap, that's not rewarding, that's having a camp for the sake of not having an empty space on the map there. I'm also deducting half a point for the Griffa tokens and challenges. Again, there's either too many challenges and tokens to get, or not enough Griffa upgrades to buy. I was finishing the game with a Road Legend (or Warrior, I forgot how it's actually called) level of 190. That's 180 more than needed. You can max (hehe again) out Max before even reaching the first stronghold. There wasn't really a balance between challenges and rewards. And the last half of a point is because of the glitches. Thankfully I haven't encountered game / trophy breaking ones during my time playing the game, but I was checking my spreadsheet after every camp I've cleared, location I've looted, Insignia I've shot. That's just not fun. I was lucky during my run, like unbelievably lucky. I've died at least ten times while looting a scavening location, mostly because gravity is still the hardest boss in every game. I am still unsure what to do next, I'm thinking Heavy Rain, but I don't want to waste my Summer of Play game in case there's a fourth round coming that's not multiplayer focused like the last one. Maybe Dying Light, but that's another grind festival. And my weekend project with @Fnee2000 You'll have to wait for my next update for that Found a game, and I'm using a swap. Swap 1 / 2 Beyond Two Souls -> Nexomon Extinction (PS4 - EU) - 0%
