  1. Lately, I've been finding myself coming home from work, plopping down on the couch and turning on my Playstation, then staring at the screen for 10 minutes before turning it off again. Purely because I don't feel like gaming or jumping back into trophy hunting.

     

    I read that I would have to renew my subscription August 18, since that never comes up in the sale now (I used to buy cards at a retailer for 40 euros a year) I am going to forgo it now. There are a number of games that I have installed that I will no longer have access to, but so be it. I never, really never, play games online anymore (I think the last time was in 2021) and as I said in the first paragraph I've grown a little tired of gaming.

     

    For that, I decided not to renew my PS plus subscription August 18 and put gaming on the back burner. It's not that I'm totally done with gaming but I miss casual gaming. I miss playing a game and then being done with it or maybe doing a second playthrough (on hard mode). But I don't feel like playing games where I have to finish it 5 times, finish it within a certain time or put in 100 extra hours before I get the platinum. At first I liked this, but lately I find it very tiring. A great example of that is Shadow of the Colossus. Wonderful game with a great soundtrack and I absolutely loved it. But I am NOT going to frustrate myself with those pesky time attacks or complete the game 4 more times to maximize my stamina bar. That's just ridiculous....

     

    I'm going to occupy myself with other hobbies such as reading, playing electric guitar and listening to my favorite bands. Maybe someday I'll renew my PS plus subscription, but not for now. Trophy hunting is fun, but it also has to remain fun, and it's not for me right now. It feels like an obligation instead of a soothing hobby.

      Best of luck with all the stuff you try to accomplish in your vacation from trophy hunting. We all need it once in a while. I took a break earlier this year and feel like I'm headed for another one soon as well.

      @CelestialRequiem said it best before. Trophy hunting is a diminishing hobby over time. Don't let it burn you out.

      Sometimes you just need to do something what's best for you. See ya later, when you decide to come back.

      Casual is the best way to go, explore the backlog and there may be a gem that has been dying to be played and enjoyed just for the fun of it. Do those other activities as well and you may find the fun in gaming again. 

  2. Sometimes I think that would be the absolute best! Can't say I don't like trophy hunting but just playing games for the sake of enjoying them YOUR way instead of having to replay the game for the sixth time on the hardest difficulty in under 2 hours.
  3. I agree (although perhaps with less harsh words) People who buy this game and get the platinum trophy are the same people who are proud of their 'My Name Is Mayo' platinum trophy. You literally bought a game to get a virtual trophy that has no real value. Is that really what you want to brag about? Yes, we all hunt for virtual collectibles, but trophy hunting is supposed to be fun and relaxing and spending money on a game that ONLY gets you a trophy (and nothing else at all) just seems stupid to me. Can't say I haven't spent money on games with a platinum that was obtainable in less than an hour, but I NEVER buy games I wouldn't enjoy. And I can't get behind people who do. But maybe that's just me....
  4. Just completed this boss. That was an awesome fight and a great final boss foir a beautiful game! Loved the soundtrack while fighting it!

     

    Now onto the next playthrough(s)! Gorgeous game that I wished I started way earlier!

      Congrats for the boss victory!

      You took his life and he took yours too. 
      I love Shadow of Colossus. I almost finished this game without dying, but last boss killed me seconds before last hit.

  5. I was actually playing Borderlands 2 and Beholder 2 and trying to get them to 100%. But I got SO bored with Borderlands 2 it's just unbelievable. Normally I really like looter shooters but Borderlands 2's awkward humor and the OP enemies after a certain point really make it a slough to get through. Maybe someday I'll pick it up again but I'll leave it in my backlog or something for now. So, I decided to let my girlfirend chose the next game for me. And she chose Shadow of the Colossus. MAybe she has an eye for these things but Shadow of the Colossus is one of the best games I've played in a LONG time. It's great! I'm going on holiday Friday so I'll have to put the game on hold then but that's okay. I've almost rounded up my first playthrough. Really enjoying it!
  6. Funny that you insulted everyone on this thread that didn't share your own opinion on things and then edit the comment. But I still want to react to it; So basically what you're saying is that people that complain about the controls only complain because they're bad at the game? And the reason that they're bad at the game is because they prefer the controls of other games? That's a very weird statement to make in my opinion. So let's say I hate the controls of Shadow of the Colossus. That makes me bad at the game because, accroding to you, I'm trying to play Shadow of the Colossus like I would play Skyrim or Red Dead Redemption 2? That's ridiculous. So not sharing your opinion is whining? Got it. People here are just discussing the bad controls in Shadow of the Colossus in this thread and you come in here and call all of the people that have a different opinion than you 'whiney bitches' for that. You would be hilarious as a politician.....
  7. I just started the game for the first time and I can agree that the controls are terrible. Controlling your horse feels incredibly clumsy, shining your sword to your next waypoint is so silly (especially on horseback) and the camera is definitely not my best friend in this game. Despite this, I was surprised by this game and I think I will enjoy playing it out. I love these types of 'little guy fights big monsters' games and this one is great! Never played the game before so I'm in for a show!
  8. I wanted to know how scary this game is compared to other horror games like Outlast, Resident Evil and Amnesia. The game has been in my wishlist for some time but I've never played it and I also don't see the game passing by much on Youtube or on Reddit. I've never played any Fatal Frame game bfore so I'm a total newbie when it comes to the story of the game The game appeals to me quite a bit because it doesn't seem like your "average" horror game and that's what I like about it. I also like Japanese games (as long as they don't contain cringy waifu as often present in JRPGs) Also, do you have to play all the other parts to understand the story/ characters of FF4 or is that not necessary?
  9. Newbie question: How scary is Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water?

      Gonna repost what I posted in your forum thread: I didn't find it scary in a traditional sense, but it's more atmospheric and eerie. Ghosts and spirits are my trigger for this kind of mood and some ghost visual and sound designs are pretty awesome i.e. ghost of a person that died by hanging produces rope creaking sound when it moves or ghost of a person that died by drowning makes gurgling sounds.

      I can recommend this game and while it's tied to previous games by some characters it's not mandatory to know plot of previous games as it's more or less standalone.

       

      Fatal Frame 1-3 use to freak the fuck out of me back then but now my limits are pushed a little so this one was more or less okay but I really enjoyed creepy atmosphere of this game. 

  10. May I ask what you mean by that? I want to try the method you quoted in your comment above, but I want to make it as efficient as possible. End yes, late reply on an already dead topic perhaps but worth a shot, right?
  11. #55- Black The Fall - PS4

    :platinum: Doubt the State :platinum:

    There’s no place like home

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Enjoyment: 6.8/10

    Difficulty (IMO): 2/10

    Time: Around 6 hours

    Rarity: 37.6% Rare (PSN) / 81.28% Common (PSNProfiles)

     

     

     

    I’m going to try and not review this game like IGN reviewed it by constantly comparing the game to Inside. Which is a valid comparison but it wouldn’t be fair towards either on of these games. Yes they share similarities in gameplay, the fact that there’s no spoken words in the entire game and a that the story/ setting is slightly the same but I still think they’re 2 different games altogether.

     

    What I personally like most in Black The Fall were the puzzles and how you have to figure it out on your own and get out of room/area or get further. The game doesn't hold your hand, and I like that. That may be partly why I like Dark Souls games so much. The puzzles are never too difficult and there have only been a few puzzles where I really had to look up where to go in order to continue.

     

    The atmosphere of the game is dark and grim, sometimes a little too dark since I had to turn up the brightness of the game to be able to see anything at all in some areas. Nonetheless, I think it is a cool atmosphere that gives you a constant grim feeling. You don't really know what's going on in the world you're walking around in but that mystery adds something to the bleak atmosphere and that's something that kept me playing.

     

    I would recommend the game to people looking for a cool puzzle/ platform game that definitely has some traits of Inside, Limbo or Little Nightmares, but manages to present its own unique game. The platinum trophy is very easy to come by and a simple playthrough could get you the platinum, provided you keep your eyes open for various collectibles scattered throughout the game.
