  1. Lord of the Ring is much easier, but there's a couple of things to keep in mind. You need to kill the 5 initial Warchiefs and 12 Captains, while having 8 Captains or Warchiefs (not the initial ones) branded. That's 20 Captains total and all the game will give you, as advancing time will not spawn any more Captains. If you find yourself short for any reason (my run went pretty solidly, so I can't validate this) I heard having a grunt kill you will still have him promoted and will give you another Captain to work with. Also, you won't be able to issue orders to branded Captains, so you'll need to find everyone yourself (interrogating summoned grunts with the left directional button is a quick way to get their locations). I've found that the Warchiefs start with no bodyguards, so it's a good idea to go after them first. [EDIT] Make sure to have a fully charged ring (I can't remember the proper term) in group situations. It makes it much easier to focus in on one guy and you can get rid of a good chunk of his health (if not all) by the time it's run out. All the best my man.
  2. You can absolutely do it without cloud saves, it just requires some pre-planning. I'll list what I did below if you want to try it on your own first. Are you still having trouble with it? I might be able to help.
  3. Gah, you beat me to it!
  4. PS4/PS3 100% #1: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor I just finished up the retrospective on Shadow of Mordor for those who care to read it. A bit longer than I first intended. Hoo boy, I'm going to have to rest my eyes now. I'm going to keep all retrospectives in the main post to keep things unified. I also did a retrospective for LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game on PS2 a little while back, again, for those who care to read it.
  5. I tried The Witcher 3 but I felt like I'd jumped in at Episode 14 of Season 5 of some TV show. I had no clue what was going on. I really want to give it another go given the universal praise it's received. It'll take me a while to follow all the breadcrumbs but as I said, I'm really enjoying it. Thanks again!

I finished off the 100% in Shadow of Mordor a couple of hours ago. Most of the trophies were rather trivial but those Trials... hoo boy (keep in mind I decided not to use the backup save exploit). Lord of the Ring wasn't too hard, I just failed the first time because I had to bugger around and waste time trying to get a level 30 rune for another trophy, but I got it on the second attempt. The Hunt is My Mistress on the other hand pushed my shit in many a time. In the end I had about 3 minutes left and had to find the Captains manually (my cheese Warchief had died... because my graug ate him... don't ask) and ended up panic-spamming arrows at the last captain's face and won the trial with 29 seconds to spare. I'll drop in to the game every now and then to have more fun with the Nemesis System, it's a lot more fun without a time limit. I've made a bit of progress in some of my other games, but not much really worth discussing. After those Trials I'm inclined to take it easy for a while trophy-wise. I haven't played Jak and Daxter since I was in early primary school, so playing that game again brought back fond memories I forgot I had. I never finished the game or made any kind of progress, but now that I'm playing it again I'm having a lot of fun. That'll do me for now. I have a appointment with cake, and it is an appointment I intend to keep. Have fun everyone!
  7. A little off-topic, but I thought I'd mention that your write-up of The Witcher 3 convinced me to pick up The Last Wish and I'm thoroughly enjoying it so far. I probably wouldn't have picked it up otherwise, so thank you.
  8. Spend most Tokens where you want, but I'd recommend saving Challenge Tokens to unlock new suits over other upgrades as, in my opinion, Challenge Tokens are the hardest to acquire and unlocking new suits has a trophy attached to it while the other upgrades do not. If you have the dlc's you can acquire Challenge Tokens while playing them, so if you don't unlock all suits before the end of the main game, don't worry. If you spend Challenge Tokens exclusively on suits you should get the platinum finishing the main story. If you get other upgrades you can still easily get the platinum playing the dlc's. Tee ell dee argh; it doesn't really matter, you'll get enough tokens to unlock everything you need.
  9. Obligatory The Last of Us recommendation. It's my favourite game and I hate zombie fiction with a passion. I should also mention God of War, Bloodborne, Spider-Man and the Uncharted series. They're some games I've had a lot of fun with. Welcome and have fun.
  10. Winter was a few months back here in Australia. I was still getting a sunburn though. Australian weather sucks.
  11. Ditto. Coffee and porridge for me. Reading these updates is the reason my breakfast takes 20-30 minutes. Even if I don't give a toss about the games people play I still enjoy reading about their experiences and milestones. Keep it up folks!
  12. Lies. The dubstep intro needs to go on longer than it has any right to before launching straight into a Raid: Shadow Legends sponsorship and your post needs to be filled with the same obnoxious 5 second ad for KFC every 5 minutes. I must say I'm glad that a Civ game is finally on PS4. I tried playing Civ 5 on my shitty 8 year old laptop and it crashed so hard it switched off after about 30 minutes. I'll be sure to grab Civ 6 when I'm distinctly less poor. Until then I'll play Civ 4, given it doesn't make my laptop harakiri.
  13. I see. I agree with @Angus1343, chapter select is probably the better option.
  14. I had the same issue the first time I played through the game. I did the exact same process on my second playthrough and the trophy popped. It seems to be glitched, but I don't know how it's glitched. Looking at your profile I assume you're doing your Grounded playthrough. I'd recommend trying again on you're Grounded+ playthrough. It might be a save file issue, so if that doesn't work you might want to start a fresh save and breeze through on Easy while getting the jokes (more or less what I did).
