  1. Update #7: Foul Play (0%) God of War III Remastered (0%) Master Reboot (0%) Overcooked (0%) Rocketbirds 2: Evolution (0%) Sonic Mania (0%) Uncharted: Golden Abyss (40%) => 84% Q.U.B.E: Director's Cut (PS3) (0%) => 100% SOMA (0%) => 100% Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (PS4) (0%) => 100% What Remains of Edith Finch (0%) => 100% Just finished my Crushing run for Golden Abyss, was pretty damn easy to be honest. There was only a couple of parts early on that were annoying, all whilst hanging from a rope. Changing the sensitivity to the maximum allowed made those sections a lot easier for the remainder of my run. The collectables were a pain to collect, but glad to have them out of the way. All that remains now is a few miscellaneous trophies, mainly kill related. Should have this completed tomorrow at some stage! In other news, managed to pick up the platinum for MGSV: The Phantom Pain and added it to my milestones. I'm also one treasure away from 100% in Uncharted 3, will hopefully be able to pick that up this weekend also.
  2. #150: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (PS3) This is the only game I've ever bought as a 'Day One' edition. It's been quite some time since I've watched/listened to the story, but I remember it being quite the let down overall. The lack of any real boss fights was a major disappointment, and resulted in very few memorable moments throughout the campaign. I also didn't like how a lot of the story was stored on cassette tapes, which were boring to listen to and difficult to remember. The repetitive nature of the side ops were an absolute pain and were the main reason why I got burned out with the game almost three years ago. The unskippable mini-cutscenes every time you entered the field to start a mission were stupid as well, and got tiring after a while. There was also the unfinished story line... the cut content (mission 51) that would've at least given us some closure on some of the newly introduced characters... and all of the rehashed missions littered throughout 'Chapter 2'. Honestly I have no idea how this game got such amazing reviews. Even though I did have a lot of problems with it, I still managed to enjoy this game. The game-play for the most part was excellent, and is miles ahead of the rest of the series. The campaign was a difficult one to get through, especially seeing as I didn't bother looking at any guides on my original run, but it was fun trying to work out a good way to approach each mission. I ended up with 140 hours on my save file, but I was in no way efficient and spent a lot of time listening to cassette tapes and struggling through the missions on my first play through. Glad to tick this off the backlog, and will probably replay the PS4 version at some stage in the future. Not sure what MGS game I'll put as my next milestone, but that is a long ways off.
  3. @Nonagelast The method I used was the hit her with an E-Stun decoy, and then followed that by hitting her a few times with CQC. Very quick and painless. Stealth camouflage is a must.
  4. 22/06/19 - SOMA Very enjoyable walking simulator, definitely the best I've played. Used the guide posted on IGN to help me through the game, attempting to do so without was an absolute disaster and I spent 30 minutes inside the first room trying the figure how to exit it. (You had to use a heavy object to break an already broken window) Great story, which picked up as you figured out what was actually going on. Would definitely recommend. 24/06/19 - Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Second time achieving the 100% for this game so not much else to say. Played it to prepare myself for my return to The Phantom Pain, in order to get used to the game mechanics/controls again. Ended up placing 18th on the fastest achievers board, which is a first for me I'm nearly certain. 26/06/19 - What Remains of Edith Finch Another very good walking simulator. It was short but I felt the length was enough for the game and it's plot. It follows Edith revisiting her childhood home, and talking us through her family tree and all of the strange occurrences throughout it's history. A game I'd definitely recommend playing, would really make you think.
  5. Yes. The only time you’ll need to use the matchmaking for co-op is when you are doing Hunter Arena farming, treasures don’t drop in custom games for that mode.
  6. Most of games you have left to do are quite the pain in the ass. Seeing as you’ve got all of the MP related stuff for AC3 I’d go for that next after you’ve completed Far Cry 3 (great game by the way). I remember when I was going for ‘Head in the Cloud’ my last pivot ended up inside Fort George and it seemed like it was impossible to get inside.. there is a way though thankfully so don’t worry if it happens to you. I can’t quite remember too well if the ‘Encyclopedia of a common man’ was buggy or not, but I do think I had some problems getting stuff to register. Winning a game of Fanorona fook quite a while as well... Remembering all of this... perhaps stick to Far Cry 3 lol
  7. Lost track of how many rounds as I was more focused on co-op related trophies, but I’d say it took me roughly 10 hours to get it to drop. Still need the Skull Bead from Monastery and Plunder/TDM wins so still a bit to go yet. Currently at 95 hours play time according to UC3, the grind hasn’t been half as bad as I expected it to be. That was my last drop as well. Picked it up last night playing HA for the first time in a couple of days with a new partner. Not that it matters, but it dropped in Fort for me. Was literally getting only 1-2 drops per game, and the game beforehand I had 0 drops total. I wish you the best of luck
  8. I think I remember Cold Hard Crash being to most difficult level for me to get the Gold Relic in. Was nothing in comparison to Stormy Ascent from the first game though, so at least that..
  9. If you have planned out your milestones, then be warned that all of those missing timestamps will mess them up. Otherwise I’d sync them, you put in the effort to obtain the trophies why not add them to your profile.
  10. If you’re not planning on bothering with the 100% just ignore treasures entirely. I’d start off with co-op and get every trophy bar maybe Overseer as they are all very manageable, and the least mind numbing by far. You can use a glitch to obtain the 4 no death trophies with ease, as long as one of you have an Ethernet cable connection. If you have the stomach for it, I’d then switch to focusing on the 50 wins for Three Team Death Match. This is the best mode for grinding out medals, I got 15 of the medal related trophies while doing wins in this mode! As long as you skip focusing on treasure grinding (in both co-op adventure/hunter arena) the grind shouldn’t be too bad. Depending on how your feeling it’s up to you where or not to continue with objective wins. You can pick up another 4-5 medal trophies from doing Team Objective also.
  11. Update #6: Foul Play (0%) God of War III Remastered (0%) Master Reboot (0%) Overcooked (0%) Rocketbirds 2: Evolution (0%) Sonic Mania (0%) Uncharted: Golden Abyss (7%) => 40% Q.U.B.E: Director's Cut (PS3) (0%) => 100% SOMA (0%) => 100% Metal Gear Solid v: Ground Zeroes (PS4) (0%) => 100% What Remains of Edith Finch (0%) => 100% I can't believe it's been more than 2 weeks since I finished WROEF, summer is flying by.. I thought it was a superb walking simulator with a great concept and a story which would really make you think about your own legacy. Short but well worth the journey. I also finally finished my first play through of Golden Abyss, having started it in the latter half of April! A decent game, shame about the poor story though. If it wasn't for Sully showing up around the halfway mark I don't think I'd have laughed once at the dialogue. I'm currently 10 chapters into my Crushing play through, and I'm following video guides for the collectables I missed on my original run. Quite tedious but I'll get over it. I'm edging closer and closer to achieving 100% in Uncharted 3, not much left to do at this stage. I'm also at a game completion of 98% in MGS: The Phantom Pain... should pick up the platinum for it this weekend! Can put more of a focus on this event once I've picked up that plat as I'll have a lot more free time gaming wise. Until the next update
  12. Here’s 5 which I’ve really enjoyed, and which also haven’t been mentioned yet. Nothing mind blowing about any of these, but I feel they are all worth giving a go. Dead Nation Headlander League of Evil Seasons after Fall Sound Shapes
  13. @kanzenchaos God of War III Remastered. Fantastic game, not sure if you’ve played much of the series though. Jumping straight into the third one may not be the best idea if you plan to play all of the series.
  14. 3.11% Overseer Get the Curator Medal while on Crushing Difficulty Happy to have this one over and done with. Ended up taking 2 evenings of attempts, with about 8 attempts total. The most frustrating part of this whole ordeal is that you only get one real attempt at it after carefully setting yourself up for each round. Very doable with a plan and the correct weapons, it's just a matter of when you get that one lucky run. We also didn't have mics so communication is not a prerequisite. Now to find my last Hunter Arena treasure and that'll be the worst of the grind finished with 😇
  15. The Hori Grip? Never even knew something like this existed... so glad I stumbled across this comment! Currently €50 for a new one off of Amazon.. I feel like it would be worth it though. I guess I should say thank you 😂
