  1. #25 - Horizon Zero Dawn When I first played Horizon Zero Dawn four years ago (before I really cared about trophy hunting) it was almost my second platinum, but I put it down unfinished for a few different reasons. The complete edition being free soon was enough incentive to finally return to this game and I'm very happy to have notched it as my 25th platinum. It was honestly one of the first games I really loved when I picked up a PS4. I'm a bit of a sucker for open world games, and this one really didn't disappoint. The combat was fun and engaging enough to hold my attention well, which I can't say about every game. The game world was beautiful which made the combat more immersive while also making general exploration a real joy. The story was admittedly a bit dull at times, but overall was pretty good and I liked the game's take on the "human-made machine technology causes the end of the world" theme. Most of the game's characters didn't leave much of an impression on me, but as a main character, I thought Aloy was awesome. She was a lot of fun to control as I ran, jumped, and crawled my way to every next objective. I had a great time being reminded of why I enjoyed this game so much years ago and am definitely looking forward to a New Game+ run as well as the DLC soon. Edit: Didn't plan this, but I also thought it was cool that my platinum screenshot is a picture of me picking up an artifact called "My Claim." Here's a link if you wanna check it out https://imgur.com/a/3PVPhQa
  2. Did anyone else update PS4 software to 8.50 today and have all of your folders get screwed up? I had most of my ~70 games organized into a few folders and my dashboard now looks like it did the day I first turned on my PS4. This is the virtual equivalent of someone coming into my room, emptying out my closet and throwing all my stuff on the floor. What did I do wrong?

      It's SIE (Sony Interactive Entertainment) fucking everything over. Bunch of business suits probably thought "Okay, lets make a system update for a console we're going to screw with in short notice".

       

      System update 4.00 for the PS4 was just them tinkering and removing shit. I don't know what update made it where you can't send messages in Friend Requests. Very dumb they had to do that.

      @kindajustinI recently had my ps4 tell me I needed to restart it and rebuild the database. It let me continue to play my game , so I saved quickly and turned my ps4 off. May have been the same error.

       

      I don't know if it was a update that caused it but after I rebuilt it,  my games were moved around.

      @charxsetsuna yeah, I guess I can't be sure what caused it, just weird that it happened immediately following the update which seemed to go fine itself. At any rate, this is now twice in two weeks it's happened so I'm gonna be giving up on these folders for now haha. Nothing else really seems to be affected, so it is what it is.

  3. Blazing Suns at all Grounds Finally getting back into Horizon Zero Dawn to pick up the platinum I didn't grab years ago. Felt like a good time to return with the complete edition being free soon.
  4. I don't believe so. In both me and my friend's experience, we had to put all the heads on a wall ourselves even in a multiplayer world. Someone can help you with the collection of the heads though.
  5. #24 - The Forest After watching some gameplay videos a year or so ago, I thought The Forest looked like a lot of fun to play but might get a little boring solo. I'm glad I finally decided to give it a shot because it really was a great time to play. If you enjoy indie survival games with a little bit of horror then you should consider trying this game out. It definitely isn't hard overall but I think it's a little harder than some guides might imply. The cannibals hit like trucks sometimes and move like Donnie Thornberry, so they make for an interesting fight. Add to that the very time-consuming Bad Father trophy and the game's handful of buggy trophies and in the end it has some challenges but is more fun and relaxing than anything. Added bonus, I love games that let me build and customize my own bases/living spaces. I expected this game to be fun but nothing special and it really surprised me. I played through most of the entire game with a friend and this was one of the most enjoyable co-op experiences in a long time for me. Getting chased across an island by an aggressive group of cannibals might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I've always liked survival games.
  6. Demolition Expert from a game called The Forest "In a Single Player game, destroy 6 or more trees with 1 explosive" I've never used explosives other than dynamite in the game before so I didn't know if I placed my sticky bomb correctly, what the blast radius was, etc. So here's a good photo of me getting knocked down on my ass and taking some damage from being a little too close when the thing went off, just like a true demolition expert. Wish the screenshot didn't come out so blurry though.
  7. Would anybody be able to help me with One Better, Certifiable, Storm Trooper, or Trade Secret? I don't really understand how trading in this game works but most of my items say 'legacy' next to them. I don't think I have much to offer in return but would be happy to help with any trophies anybody needs including the Clubs Update trophies, I still need some of them too.
  8. #23 - COD Modern Warfare Remastered Well it took two years and four separate instances of me deciding I wanted to play this game but OORAH MARINES I finally have my first platinum from a Call of Duty game! This game feels easier than the original was with the campaign only having a few difficult spots on Veteran difficulty. Hunted and Heat were pretty tough missions but nothing compares to the chaos of One Shot, One Kill haha. Nowhere near as hard as the other COD title I've played recently Black Ops 3 but this game was still a lot of fun to platinum and I'm happy to add this trophy to my collection. After spending hundreds of hours playing the original game as a teenager, I like to think 14-year-old me would be proud of this accomplishment. I also like the feeling of getting a platinum on a good game I received through my PS+ subscription so that's an added bonus. Not sure why I'm getting back into shooters recently but I'm not complaining and I'm very glad to have this game finally completed. It's probably the nostalgia talking a little, but in terms of the fun I had this game is easily an 8/10.
  9. Ni No Kuni 2 isn't turn based combat just to clarify but it's not that amazing in general tbh. I enjoyed it but you mentioned things like the Fallout series. You won't feel that playing NNK2. If you can find a decent sale price it could be worth checking out for you though.
  10. #20 - Control Originally I had no desire to be the 1,000th person to talk about playing Control these past few weeks but this game was awesome for me and I'm very glad I made it my #20 milestone. As someone who really enjoyed the story, it was way more interesting than what I'm used to seeing in an action/shooter game, but I admit I don't play many shooters. The graphics were good but not great, I liked the destructible environment and general combat was a lot of fun. On the negative side you're dealing with long load screens, heavy lag when coming out of the pause menu, and a map you'll probably never get used to. Overall I found the positive to heavily outweigh the negative. Main game is a 9/10 with a pair of underwhelming DLC's both around 6/10 for me. PS+ doesn't usually come through for me but this game was excellent. In the time since my last platinum I also completed Minecraft, Scrabble, and miraculously, Wheel of Fortune. Honestly, spinning a virtual wheel of fortune wheel for two and a half hours straight to get the last trophy brought me to some wild places mentally. I've picked my completion up from 47.92% at new years to 55.97% currently, so my goal to complete old games and improve % is going pretty well I guess.
  11. Hello! Best of luck to you getting started with trophy hunting dude
  12. Hello! Welcome to the site mate
  13. #19 - Ni No Kuni 2 I put this game down unfinished 3 years ago for a couple of personal reasons but have been trying to go back and complete some older games recently. Despite some negatives I had a lot of fun going back and completing this game and getting One True King as my 1337 trophy is cooler than most of the stuff I've accomplished as a gamer honestly.
  14. Reminds me a little of YIIK for some reason. Maybe just the bright colors and loud music
  15. I think the ability to admit that so openly shows, at the very least, a capacity to be much more than a Club if you wanted. You don't come off that way honestly. At any rate, the external assessment of a gamer's "type" is certainly interesting but could quickly become a destructive activity on a site like this. If I'm being honest, I think many of this site's biggest Clubs would strongly insist they are simply a passionate mix of Diamond and maybe Spade haha.
  16. Somewhere between Diamond and Hearts for me. Completing games is much more important to me recently and I don't play online games as much these days, but connecting with other players, enjoying games/talking together, and sharing what was loved/hated most about games will probably always be my main joy.
  17. Screw it, I'm picking up a fuzzy rug when I get a PS5. This was never really an issue with carpet floors haha
  18. Does it have any durability whatsoever? The 2nd gen Dualshock 4 controllers don't stand a chance against my dog and the hardwood floors here. Baby doesn't mean to break controllers but he's always jumping or barking or nipping at me and it makes me drop them occasionally
  19. I started feeling this same way about a month or two ago as I've started looking at all the titles that made it to PS3. My PS4 backlog is less than massive lucky for me so I have more freedom in that sense but there's also like 5 games I'm looking at getting soon (thanks again for passing Ikenfell along). It's a tough sell knowing I can and should keep myself busy on PS4.
  20. Hello! Welcome to the forums guess that doesn't quite apply to you but hope you do find it fun as it looks
  21. Sony taking care of the people who have supported them in the past in some fashion would be awesome but doesn't seem likely at this point. It also might be tough to verify console ownership (and subsequently enact a financial transaction) based on access to serial numbers alone. I was hoping it would be easier than getting a Wii in early 2007 was but at this point I wouldn't be surprised if it takes several more months to sort out. I sure hope we're not having this conversation a year from now but I've given up expecting to get one before June-July.
  22. When I heard PS5 games were going to start releasing at $70, I was forwarded the announcement trailer for this game and still vividly remember how hard I laughed.
  23. Decent additions, but nothing that makes me start to regret passing on the discounted year of PSNow last month. It really is best in 3 month bursts at most imo.
  24. Hello! I know "I like RPG's too!" is a broad stroke to paint but they are some of my favorite games and I feel the same about kart racers once in a while, Mario Kart 64 convinced me to ask for my first console as a kid. Here's hoping you enjoy the site!
  25. I know this isn't about me but I did share OP's opinion here and wanted to say I agree that the majority of games are perfectly serviceable if not a ton a fun to many people. For the same reasons that one bad experience can be more memorable than 10 good ones, the broken/buggy games just stick out and social media helps us see them now more than ever. But yes, simply stepping away for a bit really worked wonders for me personally. I haven't had this much fun in years.
