  1. First game down, God of War II. Pretty much better than the original in every conceivable way. I remembered very little of it which made it pretty fun to run through again. Campaign was easy except for a few puzzles - some of them really had me stumped. Challenge of the Titans was way easier than the originals, no RNG bullshit like the tenth challenge this time around. The only downsides were the occasional FPS drops during combat and generally sluggish menu's. Can't remember if this was the case on the PS3 or not. Still, totally worth giving this gem a go even 15 years after it's release! I'm thinking of playing through Blacklist next, perfectionist playthrough with no kills should be fun.. Battlefield 1943 (PS3) - 0% God of War II (Vita) - 100% Pyre (PS4) - 0% Call of Duty: Vanguard (PS5) - 0% Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist - 28%
  2. I'd like to sign up again, haven’t participated in a while. One from each system + an unfinished game, should have plenty of time to game over the Christmas holidays! Battlefield 1943 (PS3) - 0% God of War II (Vita) - 0% Pyre (PS4) - 0% Call of Duty: Vanguard (PS5) - 0% Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist - 28%
  3. An OST I always find myself returning to, so many amazing tracks!
  4. Metro Exodus Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus The Deadly Tower of Monsters Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater Worms Battlegrounds Titanfall 2 Call of Duty WWII Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition The Last of Us Remastered Steins;Gate 0 Unravel Mafia III Monster Monpiece Astro's Playroom Fortnite Horizon Forbidden West A Plague Tale: Innocence Wreckfest Ratchet and Clank: A Rift Apart Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered Bugsnax Assassin's Creed III Liberation htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary Vanquish Pretty solid list of games so far - should be able to add to that total during December. Gunning for a completion ratio of 95%+ by the time the year ends!
  5. Platinum #250 - Vanquish (PS3)

     

    A game worthy of a milestone. Challenge 6 really is no fucking joke. Having to deal with two insanely aggressive bogey's after four chaotic rounds.. man am I glad it's over with! Extremely satisfying to see the platinum pop. Here's to another 250! 😂

  6. Cool idea, sign me up please! PSN ID: GraniteSnake Platinum Count: 248 UR Platinum Count: 40 Average Rarity: 40.65%
  7. I’m really happy I got to experience these four games through PS Plus - don’t think I’d have ever went out of my way to buy any of them. Steins;Gate is my personal favourite! Bugsnax SOMA Steins;Gate What Remains of Edith Finch
  8. Bayonetta does in fact work - before loading up the game, connect your DS3 (controller 1) and your DS4 (controller 2). When the games loaded, using your DS3 hold the PS button and go into controller settings > reassign the controller to #2 (so the DS4 becomes controller 1). This fixes the DS4 not recognising the L2/R2 inputs.
  9. I bought mine used as well and I have the same version as you. Didn’t have any issues connecting with my boosting partner and was also able to join a random public lobby for the TDM win. Must be an issue with your internet?
  10. Not sure when this was added but said I’d make a thread, first time loading up StW since May of this year. Tested this out in a private lobby - This cuts out at least 75% of the time needed to grind out the 10,000 survivors. With a group of four you could comfortably speedrun one of the level 5 missions in Stonewood in 3-5 minutes. Before you would’ve had to wait out the full 20 minutes even after rescuing everyone but this is no longer the case!
  11. You could always just speedrun the game again in NG++ on story difficulty, takes 3-4 hours, the main quest line is insanely short when you skip everything. Probably would be quicker than doing ~15 side quests on ultra hard where every machine is an absolute bullet sponge.
  12. Please add me to the list as well @Symudtry, you definitely have enough to keep you going for quite some time now!
  13. Same here. Damn. And I literally just uninstalled it a couple of days ago. I’m thinking of reinstalling and rushing through NG+ while the game is still fresh in my head
  14. Hey, I'd like to join again. I managed to pick up a PS5 by chance last month so I've been working through my PS5 PS Plus backlog. I've narrowed it down to a handful of games I genuinely want to play so I'll be mostly focusing on them throughout the summer! Here's my list: Bugsnax - 0% Control - 0% Final Fantasy VII Remake - 0% Subnautica - 0% Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell - 1% Added in one of my games that's been sitting at 1% for far too long. I believe completing it will bring me above the 95% completion ratio threshold so hopefully I can muster up some motivation and load up my PS3 at some stage.
  15. https://www.playstationtrophies.org/forum/topic/302352-information-that-will-make-your-life-with-this-game-easier-read-after-guide/ - have a read of that thread before you start your platinum journey. I think I ended up giving this a 6-7 out of 10 - if I started the Vita version first it would’ve been an 8 because you can’t exploit with extra controllers and I wouldn’t have been familiar with any of the tracks. Using four controllers makes the events much, much easier - it seems to confuse the AI and they end up slowing down for the three trailing controllers. I was winning each Grand Prix on Expert by more than a minute total because of this. Fair warning though, for a lot of the races I actually had to finish each race with all four controllers! I found this really annoying and it really added a lot of unnecessary time to this game - I was never able to figure out why this happened. Only a few events started the 30 second timer once I crossed the line with my my main controller.
