  1. Very Hard/Iron Mutant wasn't nearly as hard as I expected after my first playthrough. The game lends itself VERY well to a stealth/sneak playthrough that is ideal for this mode. In fact, I enjoyed my VH/IM playthrough more than my initial playthrough. I had a similar experience with XCOM2, which I enjoyed but didn't really fall in love with till my Legendary playthrough (not Iron Man, though; I'm merely mortal). Didn't even have to save scum... much. If anyone is on the fence or nervous about the game based on QA Have Suffered, I would say don't be. It's really a 4/10 or maybe 5/10 difficulty at most, assuming you grasp at least the basics of this type of game. It's also relatively short, so the time investment can be pretty minimal. Hope this hits PS+ at some point so more people can give it a try, although I acknowledge that it's probably not for everyone. I'll definitely buy any DLC/sequels that may be released.
  2. Everything is still available in the US store. I checked the German one and it seems to have everything as well. I didn't check France specifically, though.
  3. I think what you're asking for is reasonable, and unless I'm misunderstanding is totally possible. No one is "banned" from the site (to my knowledge), just the leaderboards. Since you don't care about the leaderboards, there should be nothing stopping you from using the site as you want. What am I missing?
  4. If it's like Kickstarter, you would only pay if the funding goal is reached. Edit: Ok, it's not like Kickstarter, lol. Instead of pledging one large sum if the project is funded, you commit to a smaller "subscription" which you pay each month in exchange for some smaller rewards (e.g., access to early builds). Seems like you can pay as little as $1/month. I'd check out the patreon link directly for more detail: https://www.patreon.com/americanmcgee
  5. I think I'm gonna go for this one. I can deal with a grind and July 25th is a good amount of warning.
  6. Nope. There are even games that have been delisted on PSN for a fairly long time you can STILL buy with a code from GameStop even today (Amazon used to be a good source too, but seems like everything there has dried up). X-men doesn't happen to be one, but you're in the clear regardless.
  7. Ah, that's too bad, but good to know. No way to revert under those circumstances. Thanks.
  8. Can it be done by using an earlier patch? Or is it online only?
  9. Ah, I see. Didn't realize even invites were problematic... Hope it resolves in time.
  10. Several of the earlier posts reference it being a hack. I don't think I, as an average user, can create a level that will unlock story-only prize bubbles. I (or anyone) CAN create levels that will unlock the 50x multiplier. That's the difference. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.
  11. Violating the ToS and incurring risk are two very different questions, IMO. Can the ToS be interpreted broadly enough that this would be a violation? Probably. I mean, come on: You may not modify or attempt to modify the online client, disc, save file, server, client-server communication, or other parts of any game title, or content. You may not cause disruption to or modify or damage any Account, system, hardware, software, or network connected to or provided by PSN Services for any reason, including for the purpose of gaining an unfair advantage in a game. "You may not modify any software for any reason" is pretty broad. Can Sony detect that you're doing this? I'm not sure, but I would guess they could if they really paid attention to it. Would they care? Probably not as long as you're not doing something silly like messing with multiplayer servers. So I wouldn't say there's 0 risk. If you're really worried, set up an alt account with any of the games you want to down rev and then play with your main. Don't see how Sony would be able to tie anything to your main account under those circumstances.
  12. The servers were funky even several months ago, but maybe not as bad as now. One thing I found was that proximity mattered. Same country is good, but maybe not good enough. One group, the only thing that worked was me being leader of one team, and my alt (on Vita) being leader of the other team, and each inviting one of the other players. So basically the two accounts searching for each other were in the same room. If anyone in your group has the hardware for that, give it a try if you haven't already.
  13. That's a damn good question. I personally don't care too much as I really don't mind what other people choose to do with their games (although I have reported a few blatant cheaters), but this one seems pretty odd. I'm curious what rationale applies here.
  14. No, to be honest I didn't think of that. Good suggestion, though. Do you know who'd be best to contact?
  15. So I commented this on the guide but never got a response. It looks like the PS3 guide was copied more or less straight from the Vita version, but the crown conditions are different. In fact, there are 49 crowns as opposed to 44 in the Vita version. This link has the correct information for the PS3 version in case anyone still cares: http://www.booyagadget.com/2013/08/crown-guide-ps3-hot-shots-golf-world-invitational-challenge-mode.html A little vexing that the guide author even appears to have deleted a comment/question about the 49 crowns in the Comments section of the guide without looking into it. Again, the guide is accurate for the Vita version, but not for the PS3 version.
