  1. I braved the local shops and basically traded in all my 360 stuff for ps3 stuff. Got extremely lucky with a few games that are selling on amazon for like sixty bucks. Was glad to give my money to them and not spend it in the ps3 store (take THAT, Sony!) until I realized I need to buy a dlc or two😫 I am not looking forward to it, doesn't seem like anybody is having a good time in the ps3 store. Kinda shitty we have to take these measures just to be able to play certain games, but oh well. Sony gonna Sony.
  2. What's goin on y'all? I see a lot of progress being made, props to everybody on that! Unfortunately I can't seem to get a productive week in to save my life. Work this, wife that, family this, friends that. Like do you mind?? I'm TRYING to play video games. On a serious note, I am officially a hell of a sheriff and I couldn't be more pleased to be done with that. Have you ever seen someone in the forums expressing grief over a trophy and you go to their profile and see that they never got it? Always makes me a lil sad. Anyway, I am happy to have once again escaped that fate. Taking my time with the brutal playthrough on Uncharted. Yikes. That's all I have to say about that. Forgot how much I love Metal Gear in general. Ground Zeroes has been a lot of fun but definitely is serving as a reminder of my painfully average gamer skills. Getting an S on that helicopter mission has been very trying - I've never been good at shooters and precise aiming while moving is, well, whatever the opposite of a strong suit is for me. I'll get it eventually, I'm not worried about it or anything but sometimes gitting gud takes longer than I care for! That's about it from my end. I keep feeling like I've fallen behind schedule (after this week, and next week, and the week after that, there's only four weeks left!!) but eh, whaddayagonnado. As usual, havin a blast and lookin forward to all the other weekly updates! 1. Resident Evil 2 (97-->100%)✅ 2. Overcooked 2 (10-->12%) 3. Final Fantasy 7 (5%) 4. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Remastered (90%) 5. Manhunt ✅ 6. Fallout 4 (2%) 7. Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes (42-->61%)
  3. I was gonna say Arkham Asylum cuz dear lord those combat challenges slay me but then I saw Max Payne 3. That's a dope plat to have, props 👏
  4. What's goin on, fellow spring cleaners? This week has kinda been more of the same, slow and steady. Most of my time continues to be monopolized by real life; work has refused to let up, and for those who don't know, non-gamer spouses don't always have infinite patience for this hobby of ours. Props to those with spouses AND children, I have no idea how you get any games done at all! Took a bit of a break and played Abzu, which is obscenely pleasant and relaxing, and frankly exactly what I needed. Don't know why I keep sleepin on these short-but-sweet indies, I should've learned my lesson the first time around with Ms. Finch. The love affair with Uncharted is nearing its end, and I'm definitely recharged and ready to polish off RE2. I've got the faith that next week is gonna be a strong one. Let's get it y'all✊ 1. Resident Evil 2 (97%) 2. Overcooked 2 (10%) 3. Final Fantasy 7 (5%) 4. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Remastered (30-->90%) 5. Manhunt ✅ 6. Fallout 4 (2%) 7. Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes (42%)
  5. I too have fallen prey to this. I get a weird anxiety when I work late and won't be able to crank a couple out before midnight😂
  6. I'll give that a chief wiggum-esque "Yes... I mean no, no!" Have you ever looked at a task in every day life and pondered which type of ps trophy it would merit if your life was a game?
  7. Dreading visiting all the ransacked local mom n pop game shops...
  8. What's up, everybody? Hope you're all well, and as I can see y'all are progressing quite nicely. As for me, I'd like to kick off update #4 by quoting a certain naive somebody: Can someone please explain to this person how silly that was? Training mode don't. mean. shit. The real deal is absolutely no joke and eventually I will keep glued to it through the torrent of failure til I hit that sweet hundo, but I'm just not up for that misery right now. There's a special mindset you get where watching repeated perfect runs fall apart around halfway through only motivates you more, and I'm not there right now. Another day, sherriff. On the other hand, I am very much enjoying Uncharted and can't believe I missed out on this franchise for so long. Crushing has made it quite the challenge, although I feel I'm not supposed to admit that - if you look for tips you get a lot of "crushing difficulty was easy for me lol u must be dum" so I'll just keep at it. I've noticed comments about the controls being a bit outdated, but those people didn't complete Manhunt before tackling this! For me it all feels just fine. About halfway through my first run and no complaints, genuinely enjoying every moment while in the back of my mind dreading the impending brutal playthrough. Anyway that's all I got, thanks for reading and keep those updates comin. 1. Resident Evil 2 (60--->97%) 2. Overcooked 2 (10%) 3. Final Fantasy 7 (5%) 4. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Remastered (8--->30%) 5. Manhunt (90--->100%)✅ 6. Fallout 4 (2%) 7. Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes (33--->42%)
  9. Same. But while my controllers may all be in tact, I'd be lying if I said I've never pictured myself just throwing one in any given direction. The image of a neighbor walking past and a controller flying out the window and landing at their feet on the sidewalk is admittedly a funny one. Speaking of neighbors, I have definitely been guilty of yelling and not even realizing it, to which my wife will sharply (and rightly) tell me to ctfo. I wonder if they think we're fighting when that happens🤔 "Ma'am? We're here on a complaint of potential domestic violence." "Huh? Oh no, we're totally fine! My husband's just playing Cuphead!" "Oh man, poor bastard. I hated that game. Have a nice day, ma'am."
  10. Who says resting is a good idea anyway?
  11. NO. Do you wish your days were more organized and productive?
  12. You're good people, Dr. Bloodmoney. You've earned a follow👊 I hope you're right. There are only six or seven games makin me think about gettin a ps3 (I got a 360 for free and skipped a ps generation, forgive me!!) and with this rumor on our hands, I'm considering fallin into the trap and buyin up.
  13. Only because that was the last time I knew of that Sony seemed to feel the need to step in and say anything, and stress that it doesn't mean much that they aren't quick to dive in and make some sort of comment on this right away.
  14. GTA 4 lost a fuckton of songs over licensing, unless you're not online even with the disc your game is changed a bit. The fact that they can do that says a lot about what they can do with what we think we own.
  15. I secretly hope this is true. Concern is definitely understandable, but I don't think the time has come for panic and gnashing of teeth and whatnot. The idea of the ps3 store closing is wack, and is definitely a slap in the face of peeps who've been on board for years. However, it makes sense that they'd try to squeeze one last lump sum out of us for the ps3 library and have it ride off into the sunset, particularly if the numbers aren't there for them, which in all fairness we have no way of knowing. Kinda shitty, but hey. Capitalism. As far as trophies not syncing, let's not go all monsters on maple street here. All we know is a source says this is happening in a few months. Sony hasn't said anything? It's been one day, big deal. The only timely statement of theirs I remember was an obligatory BLM post (amovementistronglysupportbutthat'snotimportantrightnow) out of social pressure! Also I really do not mean to be smug or disrespectful but I gotta say it's funny to see that people who have the patience to amass hundreds of platinum trophies can't just be like "well let's wait and see what happens, no reason to obsess over what Sony could be thinking about right now." We'll find out what's going on soon enough. It's nice to have a place to talk about this, don't get me wrong! I just feel we have enough things to be stressed over these days...
  16. Yo Dr. Kahl's robot is rough one😬 I can't tell you how many tries he took me, probably blocked it out! After a while though you kinda develop a system and it isn't too bad after that. You got this👊
  17. What's up, y'all! Another light week but it looks like I've got plats for Res 2 and Manhunt lined up. For Res 2 just a few playthroughs left and that No Way Out scenario. Tried it on training mode to get a feel for it and I got all 70 no problem, so I'm hopeful that it won't give me toooooo much trouble. With Manhunt I went and five starred all stages on hardcore but forgot to do it on fetish difficulty too so there's one more playthrough to go. D'oh. Playin Uncharted on crushing and it felt pretty reasonable until I got to that first really big fire fight with like a billion enemies. OH, YOU KNOW THE ONE. Anyway I'm suddenly very concerned about the brutal playthrough. I'm glad I've got Overcooked 2 here as well because I'm definitely gonna need something more light hearted on the side while tryin to tackle that. Here's to a productive week four🍻 Looking forward to reading more updates! 1. Resident Evil 2 (50--->60%) 2. Overcooked 2 (5--->10%) 3. Final Fantasy 7 (2--->5%) 4. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Remastered (6--->8%) 5. Manhunt (70--->90%) 6. Fallout 4 (1--->2%) 7. Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes (33%)
  18. Black Ops 4. From what I understand it's pretty unreasonable, and not even the best in the series. You probably did the right thing putting it down when you did haha
  19. Hola, is this Mr. Vercetti? Good luck homie, I'm rootin for you✊
  20. Family Feud - Big Spender I love games based on shows or board games because they're the only ones I can play with my wife. Been barkin up that tree for a few years now but this is as gamer as she gets haha
  21. Hello, my fellow spring cleaners! Second week was much like the first, work has been wild so sadly my productivity has been going more towards that. Wrong place for it, if you ask me! Against my better judgement I've started jumping around a bit; I want Res 2 to be my 20th plat and something off of MGS for my 1337 trophy (I'm what the kids call a basic bitch). All I have left for Res 2 and Manhunt are full runs so I'm kinda dreading that, but starting Uncharted at long last is already a real treat. Great to see so many of you makin solid progress! Doin my best to keep up😎 1. Resident Evil 2 (50%) 2. Overcooked 2 (5%) 3. Final Fantasy 7 (2%) 4. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Remastered (1--->6%) 5. Manhunt (29--->70%) 6. Fallout 4 (1%) 7. Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes (33%)
  22. Enslaved: Odyssey to the West!! That's one of the games that's had me thinkin about buying a ps3.
  23. First week was kinda quiet, I've been hittin the ps4 a lil too hard lately and I'm burnin out. But as they say, I'll sleep when the backlog challenge is dead. Started with Manhunt and immediately remembered why I dropped it so quickly - the controls are ATROCIOUS, and I know it's old but even Vice City was better than this. Having said that, the concept is spectacular, that soundtrack is life, and I gotta say, for all its faults this is a great game. As an unashamed Rockstar fanboy, I love seeing the bridge between gta 3/vice city and san andreas, the warriors, and bully. For whatever reason Manhunt and the first Red Dead were the only games of theirs I missed at the time. Also I noticed I have Ground Zeroes at 33% so I figured I may as well add that one. I love me some MGS so why not? My sad, sad update: 1. Resident Evil 2 (50%) 2. Overcooked 2 (5%) 3. Final Fantasy 7 (2%) 4. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Remastered (1%) 5. Manhunt (1--->29%) 6. Fallout 4 (1%) 7. Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes (33%)
  24. Can definitely relate to this. Grinding out daily trophies, raising percentages and stacking plats is a unique high for sure. It's just way too easy to get wrapped up in it! The last two games I plattened I realized I was just kinda going through the motions and I wasn't fully enjoying myself, and there was a point where I was like "wait... this is supposed to be fun." After a bit of spring cleaning in the backlog I'ma take a break myself!
  25. #19: Trover Uh.. Saves The Like, You Know, Universe Or Some Shit.. I Dunno, This Is Just How They Talk In That Game, If You Haven't Played It, Well, I Don't Know What To Tell You Man, Sucks To Suck Bro ³ Really wanted to like this game, as I'm a big Rick and Morty fan (I doubt there are many who aren't on this site), but it was just an average ass platformer. If you're not great at platformers (guilty) you're gonna have moments where you're trying to figure out what to do next and are force fed a loop of "uuhhhh let's do fuckin interdimensional cable man, yeah let's DO that shit bro RIGHT IN MY ASS," and like a Twilight Zone episode bearing the careful-what-you-wish-for adage, you're suddenly realizing that this isn't what you wanted in a game. The charm wore off very quickly, and I started finding this game annoying. And I felt like an asshole, because I have found literally zero negative comments about this game, and it made me think it's just me. Which is entirely possible, of course. Having said all that, by the time I was finished, I... kinda liked it? I mean I still think this is obnoxious silliness free of any sort of substance tacked on to what's a passable game at best, but it did grow on me. I suppose what I'm getting at is if platformers are your thing and you love Rick and Morty, try it. But only if it's on sale (which it currently is, whaddayaknow). Also for real fuck that basketball trophy.
