Status Updates posted by JayDeLosDioses
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.
[Need for Speed]
I don't know if that's known yet or not, but I haven't found anything on Google.
There's a bug that let's you boost unlimited in the Need for Speed 2016 game that can make the prestige mode much easier.
As you can see, I can boost the whole straight, gaining around 12kph for the whole time.
I think it has something to do with playing on PS5. There's a message at the start of the game that you might run into some issues.
Sadly I don't know how to reproduce this, all I can say that it happend yesterday and today.
After a few tries your time will bug out, first showing some absurdly high number and then simply showing nothing.
As soon as the timer is gone, I can boost as much as I want.
You can only tell how fast you've been going at the end of each run, but I've gained 12 seconds on this track thanks to the bug.
If I can find a way to make this happen at will and not random I'll let you know and make a post in the game thread.
First update on my gold progress.
I've reached the black tracks ... started strong doing 7 in half a day... got another one the next morning in about 30min. The multilap was surprisingly fun comared to the others.
AND THEN #169 and #170 happened ... I'm 11 seconds off from silver in #169 and don't even have a bronze on #170 yet.
I know my mistakes on the first track, my jumps are more RNG and I don't really know how to aim them.
Same with the loops, I'm either too slow and fall off or too fast and hit the edges, and fall off.
Track #170?! Just looks painful.
Doesn't really help that the reward for getting the next medals is that I can drive 10 more black tracks with my most hated car.
Stadium -> Rollercoaster -> Canyon Drift -> that buggy car in order from most to least liked.
I've took a break after a few hours trying and started Civ 6 again as a cool down game. The so far final expansion is going to be released on Friday. Time to work on the 100% again for that game again.
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
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
After playing the story of Spider-Man PS4 / Spider-Man Remastered a total of 4 times...
During the final cutscene after beating Otto...
I've found it, the one thing I've wanted for so long...
YOU CAN SKIP CUTSCENES BY PRESSING START!
I'VE WASTED HOURS WATCHING THOSE THINGS!
Anyone using PS VR with the PS5?
Thinking about getting a VR headset myself, but I've read online that it's not fully compatible with the PS5 so far.
Is that true?
I don't own a PS4 Pro, and getting one just for VR while already using the PS5 would be a waste of money imo.
You better wait 'cause a new PSVR is coming.
August 8th 2017 was the last time I’ve played Horizon Zero Dawn...
Today I’ve went into NG+ on Ultra Hard... This is fine 🔥🔥🔥🔥
First time that I'm not making goals up as I go but actually put some thoughts into it.

- 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)

Going back to Trackmania Turbo after 4 years.
IF I can get all the golds, it'll be by far my rarest platinum.
Stopped playing at 100 gold and 9 trackmaster medals yesterday.
Some of the green tracks took quite a few tries and multilaps are going to be the bane of my existence in this game.
I can get one good run every other attempt, but chaining 3 solid laps is, for whatever reason, quite the challenge for me.
I'm expecting the black tracks to be a lot harder than the red ones, although it only took a handful of tries to get a gold on the first red track.
Track #66 though... the one with the palm tree over the road before jumping over a tunnel ... F**k! That! Tree!
Everyone who finished the game, what camera did you use?
I tend to do tracks that are more open and not filled with twists and stunts with the cam behind the car.
And tracks with loops, tunnels, twisty checkpoints I often change to the view in front.
I avoid switching during runs, because that throws me off a lot.
I know it's personal prefererance in the end, but I'd like to have some opinions
And another question:
Should I keep going after I get a gold until I've unlocked the 50 Trackmaster trophies, or should I leave them until last.
Checked the list of @SlimSanta94 (only one on my friendlist who has all tracks completed, at least if the in game record and ghosts are correct.) He has them way before the golds, but I also got a trackmaster by accident when having a lucky run.
Could mean less grinding time in the end. I don't know...

What I did is once I reached the Black Series, I got gold on all Black Tracks from the environment I was playing and then, while I was again used to that car, went back and got Trackmasters in the White / Green tracks of that same environment.
So once I had all Gold Medals in Black Canyon, I went back to White / Green Canyon to get Trackmasters.
Also, luckily there is only one multi-lap per Black environment, and they are, for some reason, not all that difficult (at least in comparison to some of the regular Black tracks...) Good luck!
Also... regular camera all the say. I never switched the camera manually, only when the game forced me into the cockpit-view.
I have to say I'm really disappointed in the lack of information 2K is giving us about the issues with the CIV6 multiplayer on ps4.
It's been 4 days now and the only way I was able to connect with a friend was to leave the lobby idle for 90 minutes before it finally turned up in the game list for one of the 4 people I tried to play with.
There are some major bugs in the singleplayer aswell, you can't buy things with Faith if you have the building queue active. It's not hard to get around that for a religious victory against a Settler AI but still. Sometimes the graphics glitch if you load a saved game, I had to throw away a nearly done sience win because of that.
I was looking forward to play the game with my friends, but charging 90€ for a 3 year old game + dlc (which greatly improve the quality of the game imo) and the most important part isn't even working...
I've been thinking about posting this or not, had it written down a few times already and deleted it again, but not this time. I've been scared of hate I might get, but why should I be?
It's going to be about Ratalaika and easy platinums, so before you continue reading:
If you're already sick and tired of this topic, don't read it. It's just my thoughts.
I genuinely like the games Ratalaika is porting, my most common platinum is Loot Hero DX, one of the most fun indie games I've ever played. I got a lot of Vita stacks and some region stacks. Pretty much everything the rarity hunters don't like
I will do PS4 & PS5 stacks again, now that the games are back to being crossbuy. I've paid for that feature, I'm going to use it.
I'm also disabled, ever was, ever will be. I'd rather have a second left half of my body than the right half I currently have, it's not completly useless, but you shouldn't expect anything.
Most of the times important inputs are done right handed. So even easy games aren't as trivial as you think they might be. At least when I'm playing.
I'm not using any special controllers, I don't even know if there are some, because it's training my weaker hand, and it already improved my abilities a lot.
Being rewarded in a genre (platformers) I struggle a lot with, is motivating and helps me to branch out and leave my comfort zones of racing, puzzles, point and click and RTS.
Only ~20% of my games are below 50% platinum rarity on PSNP, because the games I enjoy the most tend to have solutions all over the internet.
Maybe it's a joke I don't get, but why would that mean I'm a worse gamer?
I've still reached Diamond 3 a few times when I was still playing Rocket League
I've reached Gold 3 / A in F1 2019
I fully agree that there's some garbage I bought and platinumed, but I'm still proud for what I've completed and achieved. Rare platinum or not.
Gaming is the most physical thing I can do while actually feeling like achieving something.
Like pretty much every german boy I was in a football/soccer club as a kid, but I never played in any matches for long.
I wasn't graded in PE back in school, because as the only disabled kid in class, there was no reference to grade me on... so they simply didn't do it.
(It's probably not true anymore, I'm pretty good in Darts and Pool now too, but I'll always have the most confidence in my gaming skills.)
Being healthy enough to be independent and grow up like any other boy from my area also makes me wanna do as much things as possible as "normal" people do them. Being independent is the thing I'm most proud of. I've met a bunch of people who have it worse, they're still the most friendliest people I'll ever meet though.
Thank you for reading this far
Dude, even us able bodied peeps play some games for the easy trophies from time-to-time. Your trophy list, gaming preferences, limitations, etc, are your own, and you don't have to justify them to anyone, especially us random people on the internet.
That being said, this is one of the better communities online and I'd be surprised if you got any hate at all for this post!
Game on bro. 🎮👍
Buddy, there's no reason you'd get hate for this (ok, I'm not naive, there is a reason: some people are assholes. ButyouknowhwatImean). As @StrickenBiged said, your trophy list and your reasons for choosing some games over others are yours and yours only. If personal circumstances make you choose some games over others, who is anyone to complain?
Have fun and game on!
I've replayed Spider-Man: Miles Morales yesterday and that ending made me emotional again.
It's a short game, maybe a little bit too short, and the second half is more or less the same mission with different voice lines.
But just thinking about what could have been if you listen to each other...
It's in my top 5 for sad endings.
I've struggled to motivate myself the last few days and I couldn't figure out why.
But then I've decided to do somehting radical and burn some bridges, getting rid of some people. Maybe it was just out of desperation, but it actually helped me, so I think I did the right move. Tbh I feel a bit stupid that I didn't realised earlier that all these "friends" came after a certain point in my life.
So that means that I'm looking for some new people to have a nice chat with, or play games or whatever comes to mind. If you wanna chat hit me up, if you wanna play some games feel free to add me 😇
Is there a way to turn off the monster animations in YuGiOh Legacy of the Duelist?
It was cool the first 10 times, but seeing Exodia obliberate for the 1000000th times is just a waste of time.
And I'm simply not smart enough to get behind all that Link, Pendulum, XYZ summoning stuff.
When I played the card game daily it was special to SPECIAL summon a monster, not special to NORMAL summon a monster.
Throwing away your boss monster and special summon it from the graveyard was the combo then.
Feels like you can just summon your whole extra deck in todays YuGiOh.

XYZ stuff, don't you just have to have the two cards and be all like, "Welp, I'm gonna make this monster now" and shove the combined monster onto the field? Unless it's a poly fusion card where you need the poly card (don't ask me to spell it ).
Link and Pendulum, not a clue.
And don't even get me started on that other summon they introduced, that syncro stuff..
XYZ stuff is like Uno , customer edition You slap one card, then another card, add them up then slap slap slap you stack 7 cards of "Draw 4" with some incredibly dumb powerful monster that will die next turn from Raigeki. The most awesome useless Blackjack type of game ever.
Link is "my summon activated my other summon that activated my other summon that...". Basically XYZ but with more asspulls and triggers.
And Pendulum....oh boy. You have special monsters with different levels. You put a lower level in a slot in the left and upper level in right. Then you can summon all pendulum monsters from that interval. Why? Because they needed to do another season of yugioh of course!
That's the big picture, because there were details that made me go "nah son fuck this, let's go YUGI BOY"
There's so many fusion cards in the game now aswell
Every archtype has their own, then there's super poly to just get rid of any monster you like as long as you can fusion summon one from your extra deck.
The Synchro stuff was alright acutally. The boss monsters from the synchro decks aren't too bad, they don't protect themselves from being destroyed all the time.
Knowing a few of them from the anime might have helped too, the first season of 5D's was the last one I've watched episodes from.
My enjoyment of the campaign went close to zero as soon as duels started to take 7 turns max.
Pendulum summon your entire hand with a bunch of 2000+ atk monsters? Yes, please go ahead.
Link summon monsters that buff each other over 5000+ atk? Suuuuure
I've started "cheesing" the VRAINS story halfway through with Exodia.
It's boring as fuck since there's no interaction with the other players deck, but then again, summoning your whole deck in a turn isn't fun for me either.
Easy first turn win as long as you get a Royal Magical Library early enough in the first draw combo.
I've tried another deck with "Gren Maju Da Eiza" as boss monster.
He gains 400 ATK and DEF for every of your banished cards, but that's not fast enough for todays game.
And that card is easily blocked... card protection is key.
It actually was fine but stressful, lol
I think Aloy's back is ruined now as much as I rolled.
Can count my deaths at one hand, once in the arena after being trapped, twice against the Thunderjaw at All Mother Mountain and once against the final boss.
Finished the DLC main quests too.
It' a nice touch that the added something to counter the kinda unbalanced Shield-Weaver armor.
The new bows are better than the older ones I've used, but I still never considered switching armor.
Being able to take at least one free hit before taking damage saved my life in NG+ and the DLC.
But now it's time to put the difficulty on Story and just relax while getting the final kills and level 60.
Playing Frozen Wilds hyped me up a lot for Forbidden West!
It´s my first status update, but it´s gonna be a longer one.
So if you don´t like longer texts or personal stories please avoid the spoiler
I´m not looking for attention, I just need to get some things off my chest.Spoiler
I´ve learned this wednesday that my girlfriend passed away while I was on vacation...
I was trying to figure out how to deal best with it, and because I don´t have anyone to talk about such things, I´m "talking" to my favourite community.
Otherwise my head is going to explode.
You may ask why I don´t have anyone to talk?
Because my relationship with my family is broken since I´ve got together with this girl.
They never liked her, or her family, they even made fun of her and such things, so I had to choose a side, and I did.
And my friendlist is pretty short, you may ask why again.
Because I nearly died when I was born, and was "lucky" to get away with permanent brain damage and weak af muscles.
Funnily enough I still skipped 3 grades of regular school, and finished with a solid 1,3 average (1 is the highest grade in germany)
The girl who died was the only person I can remember who never bullied me during breaks or on my way home, she was my only friend all those years.
She helped me together with her dad and my uncle to get into gaming. With her help and playing videogames I managed to get the "delay" I had in my brain from 3 seconds til my muscles would to what my brain told them, down to sub 1.
You may wonder now why my parents would hate a girl who helped me so much?
It´s simple... her family and drugs, but mostly drugs.
Her dad works in a pretty high position at Bosch (you may heard about them), was never at home and gave her all the things she could dream off. And if he didn´t bought it, his credit card did.
We came together when she was already addicted to this shit, but my parents never understood a thing.
They made fun of her, she wasn´t allowed to visit us at home and I wasn´t allowed to go to her.
They tried everything to ruin my relationship...
But long story short.
I came back from my trip, my dad picked me up from the airport, gave me 2 games and said it´s to get me distracted.
He didn´t told me why, and when I tried to call my girlfriend her mother picked up and told me everything.
My world is ruined atm, but I´m trying to keep my thoughts clean.
Again sorry for posting such a long text.
But I actually feel a bit better now.
PlayStation gifted me the FIFA20 Champions Edition yesterday for my loyalty in FIFA19.
What I did was:
Buy FIFA19 in a sale for 20€
Buy 1€ of fifa points to try my luck with a FUT Draft
Don't play the draft because the team was crap
Play career mode a few times and occasionally getting recked by friends online
Anyone else had that happen to them yesterday?
Two years ago I've unlocked Be Greater in Spider-Man as my 5.000th trophy overall and the 75th plat.
Today I've unlocked Be Greater for Spider-Man Remastered as my 500th platinum.
Haven't used my old save game to autopop the trophies, swinging around Manhattan is so amazing, can't do it often enough.
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.
Zelda is the coolest guy in Hyrule 😬

@Folkenio you can't go wrong with an old time classic
I found a set of shirts I used to wear back in school with those kind of statements printed on. I'd still wear them, because that's my kind of humor. The humor may be the same, but the belly is way bigger now 😞
The Zelda one was my favourite back then, but today I'd probably go with "Jar Jar is my favourite Sci-Fi hero"
