  1. Making this incase it's happened to anyone else and maybe we can find a pattern... my saved data disappeared. I'd completed 5 of the 6 cases, clicked on the 6th to get it started, clicked the manual 'save' in the pause menu, quit the game. Returned after lunch, and none of the cases show any progress. Of course my ps4 helpfully uploaded my latest save to the cloud so I can't recover. I don't know what broke it - clicking the manual save? Doing so after just starting case 6? All I know is I have to redo everything It's gone. Sigh. Guess I'll use the walkthrough this time...
  2. I’m super flattered to be nominated and am glad to see my Buried Stars walkthrough helped some people!! I will vote for Legend of Heroes Trails of Cold Steel 4 for best walkthrough as I used it to get platinum and it saved my butt and made the game super enjoyable and stress free. Thanks guide team for being awesome!
  3. I found a copy on ebay for $40 without the case. The key is not to search for the UK or EU search term, as those tend to be crazy expensive, but instead just search for Persona 4 Golden and pay close attention to box or cartridge art. The EU version has their specific 16 symbol on both cart and case. I trust it more if I can tell the seller took a photo of their own product, and not just grabbing an image from the web, otherwise I'd be less inclined to think it was the correct version. I almost spent $100 on Amazon, but the Amazon game with the EU image had commenters saying it was the US version, so I didn't trust it.
  4. I had some questions about the Innocent trophy I could find no answers to online, so here it is: 1. You CAN use Alette to weaken the enemy's armor in that first fight with Alette and Rook. I never used her again to be safe, since people say even her doing damage to humans/varl may void it. 2. There are random moments in the story where all characters in your party gain one kill, including Alette. This is unavoidable and doesn't void the trophy. She showed as having 2 kills at the end of the game, despite me never using her. 3. You CAN use Alette to shoot the silver arrow in the final fight and still get the trophy, and I highly recommend you do so, because having never used her she's next to useless, and if your Rook is strong, you may need him in the final fight. It does make phase 1 a massive pain though. As other guides have said - don't recruit Onef. Trophy unlocks at end credits.
  5. Can confirm this guide got me platinum, and narrating the directions out loud enabled me to follow a lot of it without looking at the video guide at all, which was awesome. Nice job.
  6. For others who may make the same mistake I did, I got to the fishing shack with 2 major social choices, 2 major analytical choices, 2 minor analytical choices and 2 minor social choices. It made sense to me that I should be able to make the final 2 major choices analytical to get 60% analytical, restart at the shack, then do final 2 social for 60% social. Analytical it worked as planned. Social, it failed. And the only reason I figure it did is to trigger the final social choice, you need to fail to convince Bug to stay... and failing to convince her to stay requires large social ineptitude. Sigh. One more playthrough for me. Major edit... I spoke too soon. It DID work... but I only got "Manners Make the Man" when So... potentially how to get this if you want to risk attempting it when the requirements are super unclear... And incase analytical 60% is similarly tempermental, the ending I got it for specifically involved:
  7. I somehow got it while keeping everyone alive. I'm missing the 'Angela approved of John wanting to stop Mary' because Daniel and Taylor were still alive. Perhaps they adjusted some stats, or some hidden thing not listed in the list made their affection higher. May be worth giving the Heavy Burden choices a shot on your save everyone playthrough and seeing if that raises it high enough.
  8. Hmm... for those interested in this topic, I strongly recommend reading the two 'secrets of little hope' comics. Not sure it gives a final answer but the first is basically JoaLoft's theory, the second lends a lot of credit to the 'all in the head' theory, and basically left me more confused about what the game was trying to communicate. Perhaps it tries to have it both ways, as the Curator's big thing is the story is ours to tell, ours to interpret, ours to decide what makes a happy ending.
  9. Interesting interpretation. What are your thoughts then on Andrew hitting his head and losing his memories? He was ferrying the souls but never intended to take them to Little Hope? He genuinely lost his memories and was prevented from safely protecting the spirits as told? I'll replay with this theory in mind (I have to for the trophies anyway) but I'm a huge fan of naturalistic explanations. I am heavily biased this way which may be affecting my interpretation of the game. My initial interpretation wasn't that Andrew was a Ferryman, but that he interpreted himself to be that way. That he felt he was carrying around the souls of his family with him, unable to let them go. By all of the characters facing their own demons, it was Andrew finally acknowledging they had their own agency too, and it wasn't all up to him to save them. By coming to this conclusion, he was able to finally let it go, and his company name appeared properly. I think he genuinely got confused by hitting his head, and it caused his memories to come back in super bizarre ways. The one thing this idea doesn't account for well, which your theory does, is the reincarnations throughout time. We can say Andrew modernized the memory of his family a bit while he grew, but it wouldn't explain that statue of the author, which is the biggest thing pointing at a supernatural reincarnation explanation in my eyes. Why the witch trials if it's all in Andrew's head? Why the look alikes? I was interpreting the witch trials as a manifestation of Andrew trying to shift blame for the fire. He blamed Megan for the fire. He made her a witch in his eyes. By changing his interpretation of Mary's character in the witch trials, he was able to see the modern priest was the villain. The modern Priest, I believe, was sexually abusing Megan. He kept holding her late. The drawing, which you interpret to be of a demon or the devil, I saw as her conception of the priest in her life. She saw her family as not only incapable of helping her, but complicit in her suffering. Priests abusing children have been known to tell them things like they are corrupted, and their abuse is bringing salvation. Megan may have viewed herself as damned already, or captured by the devil. The devil whispering in her ear may have been simply her own interpretation of her whispering thoughts telling her to burn it all down. Megan deliberately burned down the house - but Andrew realizes she wasn't completely at fault, the priest was to blame as much as if not more than she was. Note that before every flashback, we do not see things in the trials until we discover some modern clue that supports it - for example, we don't see the writing in the Priest's bible until we've seen that clue. In other words, Andrew, having grown up in and experienced the town, is familiar with its legends, and things he sees are incorporated into them. He's placed his family as stand-ins for the stories of old. It is a way of him processing. Every flashback involves spirits literally grabbing onto us - hard - and dragging us into that timeline. In fact, Andrew had a bruise from it. This fits pretty well with your theory about the spirits being real. You could also view it as being back in the town is very forcibly making Andrew confront his demons. Why, then, could he and the others interfere with the witch trials and cause it to look like supernatural events were occurring? I think this was to illustrate the fact that the past could not be changed - attempting to save the past incarnations was ultimately hopeless, and the witnesses further doubled down on their conviction to kill. Andrew - and the others - had to stop attempting to physically change the past - instead their power came in changing the interpretation of the past - ie convicting the priest as the true enemy instead of Mary which frees Andrew from hatred and misplaced blame and guilt, convincing their doubles to interpret things a certain way - note that only influencing Abraham makes meaningful and permanent changes to the past. The others ultimately don't matter. Abraham is Andrew. Finally, my last argument for the 'all in Andrew's head' theory is specifically BECAUSE you can change the way Tanya died via Andrew's choices - and that changes the way her double died in the 1600's. Andrew's modern day agency changing the past makes 0 sense to me. Therefore, the 1600's spirit being strangled when Tanya is, and burned when Tanya is, with only Andrew being the difference, seems suspicious. Thanks for making me think I'm curious what others think as well
  10. Got it by doing chapter select. I still got caught and hacked to pieces. Only things I did differently - I didn't die at all in the whole chapter. I also watched the monster die, the first time I kept running without watching.
  11. Just a heads up, I missed the Hairshrieker trophy. The guide suggests it’s story related, but I don’t think it is. You specifically have to escape it without getting caught. I got caught by it twice and was able to heal and keep running. Once I completed the sequence, I did not get the trophy. I think you need to escape the Hairshrieker AND not be injured by it. If anyone can confirm, please comment. Otherwise my game just glitched.
  12. Dang it, I wish I found this sooner. This is the exact opposite of what XBox and Steam guides say you need to do to get the final trophy, I was super confused. Wonder if it's truly intended this way... and the darn game autosaves... so if you don't have a cloud save (I did day 7) you have to play the whole thing again.
  13. Guides are now up. 🙂
  14. No worries. I just got feedback today that I messed up the formatting. My bad for failing to read the how to write a guide. I’m making revisions today and resubmitting once done, but I’ll see what I can do for you.
  15. It says it’s waiting for review. It’s barely been two days though and a step by step platinum walkthru is admittedly... a lot. The first run you’re forced into a bad end though and my recommendation is to play however you want the first time, and try to get the trophy for running out of sanity (answering the questions wrong over and over until it breaks works well, just save before you do it).
