  1. It was just announced that online support for the 360 and PS3 versions of the game are being shut down.
  2. I'm about to start the game and found this thread very helpful in convincing me to start on the hardest difficulty. I was having second thoughts after reading this story about Henry Cavill struggling to play the game's Death March difficulty.
  3. I've been so on the fence about returning to the game to play the DLC, which I never played after platinuming the game 6 years ago. I know it's gonna be a buggy mess, but I hate seeing the 53% trophy completion rate on my profile. Plus I love the Fallout world and God knows PlayStation folks likely won't ever see a new game on their platform again. I'll probably pick up the Ultimate Edition and hope for the best. I only want to play the DLCs so I suppose I can just start a new game, play up to whatever point you can start the DLCs, make a save, and then just run through each DLC from that save point to keep the save file sizes down.
  4. I just got the platinum in The Walking Dead season 1 on PS3 7 years and 10 months after getting my first trophy in the game. I believe the first episode was free back then, so I tried it out and couldn't really get into the game (plus the awful Telltale controls and glitches were a turnoff). I'm really glad I decided to restart and finish the game. It lived up to its high reputation, despite its atrocious mechanics and technical issues (which are even more glaring after playing on a PS4 Pro for a few years).
  5. I'm really debating starting this. I like the setting but haven't gotten into other survival games that look similar to this, like Conan Exiles and The Long Dark. Conan Exiles was really janky and in the gameplay videos I looked at for this one, it looked to have its share of jank present, too.
  6. I'm taking advantage of a recent offer of getting PS Now for a month for $6.49 and just platinumed the game. The base game online trophies were quite easy to get (and I'm terrible at multiplayer). I picked up a few of the DLC online trophies as well with minimal effort. One or two of the game modes were pretty quiet, but I had no problem finding players in March 2021 via several of the other game modes.
  7. I just finished playing the campaign and this game made my Pro's fan run louder than I've ever heard it before. The console was running loud most of the time, too. The fan volume rarely seemed to subside to a normal level, which was annoying. Headphones were definitely required for the entire playthrough.
  8. PSA: The game is on sale until February 18th for just $13.19 on the Canadian PlayStation store and $9.89 on the U.S. store.
  9. The game's servers are terrible. I got disconnected so many times while playing this over the past week-and-a-half, despite the fact I have fast internet and a hardwired online connection.
  10. I don't know...I was really surprised when I checked the time counter, which said something like 6 days played. Based on input other gamers give on sites like this or PlaystationTropies.org about how long it takes them to get a platinum, I habitually seem to take WAY longer than the average person playing through a game. I'm not sure why...I'd consider myself a better than average gamer (I've been playing them for 40 years now) and have a respectable 60-something platinums, most of which are legit platinums. For whatever reason, it just seems to take me much longer to complete games.
  11. Yes, that sucks, huh? I think it's June that this goes into effect, right? Oh well, it was nice while it lasted.
  12. I was surprised when my last weapon trophy for the grenade launcher unlocked because I hadn't been able to get the Aftershock launcher to complete it. I bought a Legendary launcher named Sentinel's Vengeance and had it equipped for the mission I just played and I just noticed it says it's an upgraded Aftershock, so that counts towards the trophy.
  13. I've been playing with the Colossus for quite awhile now (about 15-20 missions) and this weapon never drops. All the other weapon trophies were very straightforward...it makes no sense that this one is so bloody elusive.
  14. There's a lot about this game I like. I've been playing it solo for a week and love the flying, it has good gunplay, great sound, and the game looks very good graphically. Most of the characters are likable and the vast majority of the voice acting is first-rate. Unfortunately, the servers friggin' suck. I've lost connection at least a dozen times despite having fast internet and a wired online connection. The load times are extremely slow, too. The missions are shockingly samey and very uninspired. And there are still bugs (I have one where I can't start a side mission because the conversation icon with the NPC disappears whenever I get close to him). No way am I going to attempt the platinum. The numerous collectibles and having to get all the javelin gear trophies are way too grindy for me. And it's ridiculous that all the weapons needed for the weapon trophies are easily accessible except for the damn Aftershock grenade launcher, which never drops.
  15. I really disliked all the backtracking you had to do, mostly because the planet layouts were SO bloody confusing to navigate. I just platinumed the game but must have spent a good 8-10 hours just running around trying to figure out how to get to a certain area for a collectible or to get back to the ship. This probably sounds like a contradiction, but while the maps did make sense they were not very user-friendly in my opinion.
