  1. I’m aware of that. I meaning because of the name changes a lot of cheaters have appeared back on the leaderboards (temporarily) making the stats even worse than usual so hopefully once it’s done there is a sweep of all ghost stats to get them back to normal. I know there won’t be because it’s apparently not important but one can always hope.
  2. I’m really hoping the numbers will be (temporarily) fixed once the name change stuff is sorted out. And that a permanent fix will happen however I’m not holding my breath as this issue has been mentioned many times before and nothing gets done about it. Given how many people use this website for stats it’s a bit ridiculous that something isn’t done to make sure the stats are as accurate as possible.
  3. Weeblympics #10 - Tales Of Symphonia: Dawn Of The New World Tales Of Symphonia: DotNW was a decent enough game though I prefer the original. It’s different from the other Tales Of games I’ve played in that your main party consists of the 2 main characters and monsters which you capture during the game. Combat can become rather broken on even the hardest difficulty when you max out a monsters stats and they can absolutely wreck everything. The trophy list wasn’t as bad as ToS with a lot less grinding and only 3 playthroughs. The Gladsheim dungeon is easily the worst thing I’ve had to do in a Tales Of game as it’s completely random and you can’t fumble your way through it, you have to map out each floor otherwise you’ll be going in circles (like I did when I had a quick go to see what it was like before reloading and mapping my way around). I’m half way through my list now though I won’t have it completed by the event end date but I will get through them all eventually. I’ll be knocking out a couple of PS4 games then it’ll be onto my last PS3 game for this event, Catherine.
  4. No, what sort of trophy hunter would delete trophies.
  5. You might be a premium member but your IP address can still be blocked from updating too many profiles in a short amount of time. Being a premium member means you can up date your profile every 60 seconds but it doesn’t allow you to update more profiles quickly compared to a non premium member.
  6. Tales Of Symphonia: Dawn Of The New World. Can anyone confirm that statues equipped to monsters don’t carry over to NG+? That’ll be rather annoying if they don’t since I spent a good hour farming Philosophers Stones then turned them into statues. On the plus side you can carry over Synthesis items so I’ll just have to farm enough to make them again for NG+ and NG++. @Undead Wolf have you started NG+ and can answer my question?

      I did start NG+ (I'm only at the very beginning), but I didn't make any statues on my first playthrough.

       

      I found this GameFAQs thread and post #5 claims accessories (including statues) equipped to your monsters carry over to your next playthrough so long as you select the 'Monsters' option in the Grade Shop.

      However, I just checked my NG+ save and it doesn't look like my monsters have any of the accessories they had equipped at the end of the last playthrough. Maybe it was changed in the remaster of the game.

      Yeah I had seen they carry over on the Wii version but the trophy guide for the PS3 version says they don’t so just wanted to confirm it. Looks like I’m doing some more farming.

  7. Does anyone else want to see Ratalaika weigh in on one of these threads and defend themselves about their 4 minutes plats that can be stacked 52,854 times per game?

      & yet Resident Evil 4 didn't even get a plat... :facepalm:

      Absolutely.

      I don't personally care. They have a business, it works and that's what matters. They are not responsible for balancing the trophy ecosystem, Sony is. They are just doing whatever gives them money, like most companies do.

       

      If there is ever a change of scenario and the balance is maintained, they will change their approach to continue reaching their goal. They do not set the rules, just work with them. It's not their fault.

  8. If Emil from Tales Of Symphonia: Dawn Of The New World is saving me then I’m screwed because he’s a pissy little bitch who constantly apologises to everyone ( I’m only 7 hours into the game so maybe he mans up by the end). If, on the other hand, it’s Marta then I’ll be fine.
  9. You’ve asked in the right place, it doesn’t exist and you’ve just suggested it.
  10. So I don’t get off topic I’ll leave this here.

      @MidnightDragon, programmers.  Converting into system readable dates becomes somewhat confusing when you factor in the dates.

       

      Also, I like YYYY/MM/DD better.  Most people use it at the japanese owned company I work for.  Do agree the metric system should be used in the US tho.

      Maybe our next topic of discussion could be what the first day of the week is. I’ll give you a hint, it’s not a day that’s part of the weekend :P.

  11. Finally defeated Owl (Father) in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. It’s the first boss I’m very happy to have beaten. Every other boss I’ve defeated is either easy, can be cheesed or I just kept dying and trying again till it was done. This boss however I actually had to learn his moves and practice what to do at each move till it finally came together and I beat him. Only one boss left between me and the platinum now (well that and NG++ but I’ll be fighting bosses I’ve already beaten before).

      Nice work!

      So is this just as good as Bloodborne?

       

      I may pick this up earlier rather than later if I hear more people on PSNProfiles say it's pretty good.

      It can be hard to be objective about these sorts of games some times. The boss battles can be frustrating to the point of really not liking the game but that being said it is a very good game. Personally I like Bloodborne much more, it’s still my favourite PS4 exclusive. Bloodborne does have a lot of variety in terms of weapons compared to just one weapon in Sekiro. The prosthetics are useful but I really only use just 1 of the 9 most of the time and another occasionally. As much as I like the setting in fuedal Japan, Yharnam is the best world that From Software have created in any of their games for me. If your interested in it but not really wanting to play it straight away you may be best waiting till it’s a bit cheaper. 

  12. Yes you need to throw it off the bridge. When you’ve nearly broken it’s posture lure it to the side of the bridge (you can break all walls of the bridge) and when you perform a deathblow you’ll throw it off the bridge.
  13. The method I’ve been using in the Mibu Village gets me 6,006XP (on NG+) in 1.5 minutes including warping back to the Sculptors Idol. You only have to properly fight one enemy that can be killed in 2 hits and everything else is back stabbed.
  14. Wasteland 2 has 44 missable trophies, 2 story related trophies and a platinum.
