  1. - 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.
  2. Completed Mafia III a few days ago. I really enjoyed the setting, characters and the way in which the story was told. Unfortunately the gameplay is the games biggest flaw, it's very repetitive throughout the entire course of the game. The side quests really take the piss with how much needless driving you need to do - and there was no fast travel to alleviate this. One thing I must say is that the soundtrack was absolutely amazing, it was worthy of a better game in my opinion. Trophy glitches and the need to downgrade the game to get the trophies working correctly make it almost impossible to recommend this game. It's a shame. Two Supergiant games left. I'll try and get them done over the course of the month! Bastion Mafia III - 100% Pyre Steins;Gate 0 - 100% Unravel - 100%
  3. That used to be the case but not anymore because the PS Now version was updated and is now the 'definitive edition' (1.12) which has a bunch of bugged trophies. From what I've read, downgrading to 1.09 is your best bet as it seems that all of the trophies are working as intended in this version. I used this thread: The fourth post contains everything you need. It seems like a massive undertaking at first but it isn't actually that bad. The video guide compliments the text guide and is very useful if you get stuck. It's worth mentioning that I needed to disable the firewall on both windows and my antivirus to get step 6 to work.
  4. Finished up Unravel a few days ago. It was a decent puzzle-platformer with some nice visuals and a relaxing soundtrack. Some of the no-death runs were a pain to complete, mainly due to the slow paced nature of the game. I had the tendency to end up rushing through the levels on my subsequent runs which ended up with more needless deaths. Overall thought it wasn't so bad, and none of the levels took more than a handful of attempts! I'm also swapping in Mafia III for Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition. I went through the trouble of downgrading Mafia III to version 1.09 the other day (which has no bugged trophies) and had to sacrifice a night's sleep in the process. Time to finally complete this game, it's been sitting at 1% since 2019! Bastion Pyre Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition Mafia III - 2% Steins;Gate 0 - 100% Unravel - 100%
  5. Okay, great, appreciate the reply man 👍
  6. @Golden Devil Gamer @HusKy Is it necessary to close Charles and reopen it every 30 minutes? The prompt to close it comes up every 30 minutes but if I don’t click on it the download on my PS4 continues regardless and the Charles program does not auto close. If I could leave this running overnight without having to check in every half hour that would be great but I’m worried I’ll mess up the download if I don’t.
  7. Finally completed my first game, Steins;Gate 0! It was an amazing experience, almost as good as the first game but not quite. It was always going to be next to impossible to match that masterpiece. The soundtrack was top notch, plus an interesting selection of newly introduced characters added to the already brilliant core group. You'd be a fool to skip through both of these games for the sake of quick platinum - it's well worth investing your time into this series. A really emotional journey full of twists and turns, highs and lows. Arguably the best story I've experienced out of any game I've played! Bastion Pyre Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition Steins;Gate 0 - 100% Unravel
  8. Not necessarily. I got carried through all stages in just over two hours and it was my first time ever playing the mode so I started out a level 1. We only had to retry one round throughout the whole 10 stages on Crushing - it went smoother than I ever expected it to.
  9. Have you tried lightly tapping the top of the PS4 where the disc would be after inserting the disc? My Pro started giving me issues with unrecognised discs and that’s the solution that works for me!
  10. As you're following the 100% guide I'm guessing you're playing on Very Easy difficulty? If you equip the EZ gun and stay still your stamina auto-regenerates. Those frogs were indeed a pain in the ass on the Vita, good luck with the remainder! Loading times on the Vita sucks, especially if you have a lot of save files. I cut mine down to like five when I was doing the motorcycle kerotan's just for quicker retries.

  12. Finished Worms Battlegrounds just over a week ago. I found it to be such a boring game, I was so happy when I finally got to delete it off my PS4. Some of the campaign missions were very frustrating. The AI worms were so unpredictable at times, either they would damage you from impossible angles or damage themselves when it seemed obvious they could get to me. It did provide some moments where you just had to have a chuckle at their stupidity. In other news I have Vanquish at 91%. I attempted challenge 6 around 4-5 times, reached the final wave on nearly every attempt but kept getting my ass handed to me by the double bogey's. I'm waiting for a weekend where I can just zero in on this challenge - I don't fancy spending my evenings after work getting frustrated by this game. I've also returned to CoD: WWII this week. I got carried through both The Final Reich + The Darkest Shore's Easter Eggs and managed to nab the platinum tonight! Very happy with my progress so far. I still have a lot of zombie trophies to go through though and they will be no walk in the park. I also tried out Bulletstorm, mainly to check if I could connect to my co-op partner in Anarchy mode. Thankfully we had no issues. From what I played I'm expecting it to be a fun game. Time will tell!
  13. Final update: I managed to sneak one more game in before the event end, Titanfall 2. I can't recommend this game enough, it's an absolute must-play for fans of the FPS genre. Overall I'm pretty happy with 16 completions. Next on the agenda is figuring out a list for the spring event, see you all over there!

  14. I'm able to reach wave 5 consistently using the following video, best tutorial I've come across. Those two bogeys keep destroying me though, I've barely been able to put a dent on either of them over the course of my attempts. The shotgun loop is just too difficult to do, and their AI is just ridiculously aggressive. Expecting this to take me many more attempts...
  15. Listing the shows I've watched since I last posted here: Cowboy Bebop (1998) - Fantastic anime. I especially enjoyed the story-arc episodes. Entourage - Pretty good easy-watch show. Johnny Drama was my favourite of the bunch! Curb your Enthusiasm (up to date S11) - Absolutely hilarious. Larry David is so funny, some real gems throughout the seasons! Archer (S11+S12) - A return to form after a few dodgy seasons. RIP Jessica Walter, such a great send-off! Top Boy - A lot better than Summerhouse but still nothing special. Excited to see where season 2 takes us Master of None (S3) - Horrendously bad. I'd only recommend watching this shit if you've trouble sleeping, it's extremely boring. Succession (up to date S3) - Weird show, but very addictive. Brian Cox is an amazing actor. Excited for the future of this series! The Sopranos - This is it. The big one. Lived up to the hype and then some. Tony Soprano may well be my favourite character from any TV series. 6B was amazing - loved the ending and the episodes leading up to it. Easily one of my all time favourite shows! I need some downtime after The Sopranos before I jump into my next big show. I've three in mind: Six Feet Under, Boardwalk Empire or The Wire. I'll decide after I catch up on some other shows I've fell behind in.
