  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Yes, that sucks, huh? I think it's June that this goes into effect, right? Oh well, it was nice while it lasted.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. I heard about the server shutdown too late but I must admit, I actually didn't mind that the platinum was now unobtainable. I started the game a little over a week ago and just finished it. If the scrap crew challenges were still functional I likely would have gone for the platinum, which would have been a hellish grind. It allowed me to enjoy the game more than I otherwise would have. As it is, I ended up putting 140 hours into the game and as much as I had a lot of fun playing it, I was ready to finish it up. Glad I didn't have to worry about completing all the challenges, grinding out those unenjoyable Death Run races with every vehicle and with legendary times, or looting all scavenging locations. That latter one is brutal...even with that much time spent in the game, I still only had about 65-70% of them done. It was also nice not having to stress out about the scavenging location glitch.
  10. I also picked it up last week when I saw it was on sale on the Canadian store for such a crazy cheap price. It's interesting...I noticed for quite some time that games or DLCs that were on sale for really cheap (around $8 or $9 or less) were the same price on the Canadian and U.S. stores. Anything more than that and the Canadian prices would then cost more. Looks like that is no longer the case, as this season pass is $4.49 CDN and $3.49 on the U.S. store. Damn loonie. I was also wondering that. It was ridiculous that the Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition wasn't exactly so "ultimate" since you had to pay extra for that Fuhrer mission.
  11. I also fumbled around a bit today trying to figure out how to get access to the DLC after buying the season pass. I just quit the game and restarted it and I was then able to use the DLC.
  12. Agreed. I can't believe I just spent about 30ish hours playing this broken mess. Despite the tons of feedback about how buggy this game is, I stupidly caved in and played it because it was so cheap (6.99 for the GOTY) and I like sniper games. Although it's a 2017 game, a lot of the NPC faces and animals look like they're from a 2005 game. The driving is bad, the climbing sections are awful, and the story and voice acting are forgettable. And sweet Jesus, the loading times are the worst of any PS4 game I've played. Like, laughably long (that's on a PS4 Pro, too). To top it off, I just had my save file corrupt right after I finished the main story. The game had a message that it was restoring something (the cloud save?) and I was able to resume playing, but there were a bunch of issues. When I finally hit the 100 km of driving mark for the trophy, the trophy didn't pop (I drove a little more and sit at 105 km driven and no trophy). I did the triple kill with one bullet twice for the trophy I still needed and it didn't pop. And the map was all messed up. When I was in one region and checked another region, some of the collectibles I was missing were marked on the map, as well as the Dam side mission unlock icon. But when I travelled to the region, none of those things would show up on the map. I thought I'd get this platinum, but I'm checking out with 74% of the trophies completed. This game is a textbook example of buyer beware and I'd strongly advise anyone to skip it unless they're very patient and are willing to deal with the guaranteed aggravation they'll have with it.
  13. Glad that I saw this trophy was much easier to get by just playing The Bright Lord DLC. I left it until the very last and got a level 25 rune to pop the platinum after about three hours of playing the DLC. The first three or four runes I got were level 22-24 and the right one dropped after those.
  14. I just finished the campaign and loved it, but my enjoyment level has dropped considerably playing The Bright Lord for 3-4 hours. I agree, Celebrimbor isn't as fun to play as Talion. My biggest issue is the huge difficulty spike, however. The Press the Advantage mission where you have to maintain at least 10 Followers for 2 minutes is a massive pain in the ass, as is the one where you have to get 50 kills in a few minutes by your followers. They feel very unbalanced compared to the difficultly of the campaign.
  15. I'd say it's just a tad more challenging than Bloodborne, although that perspective is perhaps a bit skewed since Bloodborne was the first SoulsBorne game I ever played. Since then, I've platinumed Lords Of The Fallen and The Surge and have a little more experience with this genre, but I'd still rate Nioh a 7 or 8 out of 10 in terms of difficulty.
