  1. Will confirm that the method the guide mentions for Hannah does NOT work. You need to reject and insist on the incense or whatever it is. I also believe that you must hang out with Kirstie to get to this scene - all I know is that hanging out with Tobi (and getting along) will not lead to this necessary scene. Hanging out with Hannah might unless you leave early in which case Lucien shows up instead?
  2. You say that like I'm trying to insult people for playing cheap novelty games for platinums. I'm not. I just think it's kind of dumb for there to be games out there made almost solely to make a quick buck off of trophy hunters. One game was actually removed (or had to be relisted or something) for being marketed as a "lol get a plat in 5 minutes" type of game. Is any of this a big deal in the grand scheme of things? Of course not, but I guess I'll keep enjoying my "full-assed hardcore games" and not give my opinion on this god-awful Forum again.
  3. Since trophies are a requirement for games, I would like to at least see Sony step up a bit and prevent these half-assed "novelty" games, or whatever you want to call them, from having platinums. Other than that, I don't think they should dictate developers on what types of trophies to include. It is unusual for there to not be a trophy for completing the game, but if that's what the developer decides, then so be it.
  4. Well, I sure miss PS3 game installs where most games were a few GB or less provided you were installing from the disc. Game install sizes are becoming a nuisance and I imagine it'll only get worse. Sure, hard drives are getting cheaper, but with all this advancement in technology it'd be nice if it wasn't a struggle to keep more than a dozen games at a time on the stock hard drive. Anyway, does the PS4 have the thing where you actually need double the space a game takes up in order to download/install it? I vaguely recall that being a thing with the PS3 and that was the only thing that annoyed me about the PS3 when it came to system storage management.
  5. Props for doing something different, I suppose. I don't imagine it will feel much different than previous Watch Dogs games, but I'm willing to give it a go.
  6. Had the same "problem" and thought it was a glitch for a minute. Can't really blame us for forgetting controls when it takes like 4 months for an episode to release
  7. Looks easy and straightforward provided nothing is missable. As someone pointed out, there does seem to be a tendency (especially with newer releases) for PS4 exclusives to have trophy lists that are quite easy and forgiving. Not complaining, personally, just an interesting observation that sounds mostly accurate. Hope this game does well. I'll be getting it regardless of reviews, but I still have a feeling it won't be on the higher end as far as other PS4 exclusives go.
  8. Given the success of the first game, I wouldn't be surprised if the sequel was a late 2019 or early 2020 release. It'd make sense to push it out in the current gen since there's so many PS4 owners. But I imagine it will be re-released as some sort of "enhanced" version with the next console, whenever that'll be.
  9. I'm on board with more strict, clear guidelines as to what kind of game can have a platinum. But I don't think Sony will ever put forth the effort to regulate that. Other than that, I've always liked trophies as they are. I've always thought they were better than just a pure points system.
  10. Edit: put everything I typed into spoilers even though I would assume that spoilers would be expected in this topic and it wouldn't be necessary to use spoiler tags. Buuut just in case I suppose.
  11. I was only vaguely familiar of this event in this comics, so I had no idea how "big" of a moment it really was. And to be, the reveal was really unexpected and pretty shocking. Felt pretty bad to see Enid and Tara up there, but at the same time there are other major characters I would have rather not seen up there. I don't know if Henry should have been surprising to me, but it was. I just thought they were working up his character too much to kill them, but it turns out they were working up his character to kill him. And this will also make that Alpha's daughter (I'm bad with names) especially vengeful, so that should be interesting. I've always like watching this show even if it's lost a lot of viewers. I was starting to lose interest after what they did to Glen: both faking his death and then killing him off with a really dick move of a series finale and an even more dick move of killing another character first to "trick" us into thinking he was safe again. Anyway, this season has definitely been one of the better ones compared to the last few seasons or so. The time jump changed things up and so far the show seems to be managing okay even without Rick.
  12. Cool, I'm glad that they've distanced themselves from E3 and will be doing this instead.
  13. The bonus episode is about an hour long depending on how much you take your time with it. It wasn't super crucial to the story or anything but I thought it was playing.
  14. I didn't play a lot of PvP, but I don't remember anyone actually getting enough votes to be kicked. I'd usually see at least 1 person trying to kick someone most rounds. I received a few myself. But since it takes a majority rule to kick someone out, I never saw the system as being problematic. But I can see how it would be annoying to get kicked just for winning and I'm sure people do actually get enough votes sometimes to get kicked for that. I did witness an almost successful kick while doing races on someone that was winning most of the time.
  15. Ha! I think it's actually kinda funny. But I can see how it'd be annoying if it never went away.
  16. Not a fan of stealth trophies and I hope that none of the collectible-oriented stuff is missable. Seems like a pretty standard Metro list, not sure how difficult Ranger Hardcore is though. Didn't look at the hidden trophies either. In any case I intend to play through the game blind disregarding trophies on my initial playthrough anyway. Most importantly, the game looks great and I'm excited to play through it.
  17. On the PS3, Deadly Premonition and Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse come to mind. Deadly Premonition had some awful gameplay mechanics, yet it was such a fascinatingly bizarre experience that was hard not to enjoy. Family Guy got poor reviews, but I actually kinda had fun with it. It looked like a PS2 game and there wasn't anything particularly special about the game, but it was amusing and fun enough to play. On the PS4, I'll say Homefront: The Revolution and Hardware Rivals. Homefront: Revolution was rightfully shat on upon its release because it was pretty much a nightmare to play. But once its major issues were fixed for the most part, I actually didn't think it was that bad of a game. Definitely nothing special, but very much playable when the game wasn't pausing every few minutes to load (or maybe save, I forget which). Anyway, I'm among the 0.97% of people here who played the game and bothered to 100% it 😂 Some of the DLC was actually decent too imo. As for Hardware: Rivals, I found it really fun while it was active when it was a part of PS+. I'm probably one of the few who genuinely enjoyed it despite its mediocre reviews.
  18. Definitely this. Also they're stupidly expensive. And on the note of space, get physical cartridges if you can. Vita game downloads will eat up space really fast. However, cartridges generally don't take up much space at all. So really you can only get away with a smaller memory card if you go all physical.
  19. Browse its library and see how many games interest you. Then weigh the cost vs. benefit from your own point of view. Personally, I don't regret buying a Vita even if its first party support was ultimately underwhelming. I did search deeper and ended up finding stuff I liked, so I've definitely gotten a lot out of it.
  20. Are you trying to purchase the episode individually? If so, you can't. You have to buy the episode 2-5 bundle given that you bought the first episode on its own.
  21. It appears that you can't purchase the 2nd episode individually like you could with the first episode. Instead, you have buy the episode 2-5 bundle if you bought the first episode individually. It's kind of annoying since the episode 2-5 bundle is $32.99, so if you bought the first episode on its own, you have to pay $1 more for the remaining episodes. I know it's only a dollar, but I was under the assumption that I'd just be able to buy episodes as they release since buying the first episode individually was an option. So, just somewhat of a heads up I guess since this isn't typical of episodic games. Just buy the season pass if you're wanting to play this game since there's really no benefit in just buying the first episode unless you're wanting to just play the first episode to see how it is before buying the rest.
  22. Doesn't really matter how many trophies a game with a platinum has since they all have roughly similar point values. So it's not like you're really getting less out of it unless you really value your total trophy count I guess. Besides, most games anymore don't have base lists with 50+ trophies. Anyway, this list has the variety and challenge I'd expect from a Resident Evil game.
  23. I didn't say that couldn't be its special thing? Based off what I've seen, I'm just saying that I hope the story is good because I haven't been impressed by what I've seen in terms of gameplay. If it turns out to be fun to play, then great, it should be an enjoyable game even if the story isn't its strongest point. Lastly, I just made a guess at how the game will be received because I felt like it. How you think I meant that its scores were more important than personal enjoyment is way beyond me... Not my comment you're responding to here, but I think it's lazy game design to just randomly leave explosive barrels everywhere. I can see how that can a point of criticism. Not a very serious one that should single-handedly ruin the experience, sure. But it's a reasonable critique nonetheless.
  24. I was once pretty excited for this but now I just don't know. It looks decent enough to play, but otherwise nothing that special. Hopefully the story side of it will be good because it doesn't look too impressive in terms of gameplay or visuals. I'd like for this game to do well, of course. But I'm going in with lowered expectations and hopefully enjoy it enough. As of now I'm predicting a Metacritic rating in the low 70's.
  25. It's not something I keep in mind all that much when playing a game. I'm usually somewhat slow at platting games due to a limit of free time. There have been a couple of cases where I blew through a game and ended up high on the leaderboards for completion time. It's nothing I ever planned prior, it was just something I felt like doing once I had already made a lot of progress in the game in a short amount of time. My best example is Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition. I got the 100% in like 2 days and some change and ended at #7 or 8 for 100% completion time. It was kind of a fun personal achievement. Doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things, it just shows how much free time I had and was willing to spend playing one game. I had already played and plat'd it before on the PS3 so it didn't bother me to rush through it. And it's not a difficult game at all, of course. So, I dunno. Not sure I'd describe them as "pointless". I can understand the appeal for the small crowd that enjoys it and also see why most people don't bother. That's also pretty relevant when thinking about trophy hunting... most players don't care about too much about trophies. Anyway, trophy speed-running is just a hobby within a hobby... within a hobby. (Video games, trophies, trophy speed-run)
