      Sounds like a good compromise to me! Thread unlocked :)

      If you (or anyone for that matter) would provide a sorted update, like those i did monthly, i could certainly put them into the OP, sure.

      But if you're committed to continue the list in the future then, by all means, you can just copy my OP into a new thread and continue from there if you want :)

      I personally stopped trophy hunting almost two years ago now, so i slowly lost interest in doing these updates anyway as you can perhaps imagine. 

      When covid19 hit and i wasn't really able to update it for two or three months i really couldn't get myself to catch up on all those guides, so i decided to finally quit updating it, too.

       

      Tbh i never planned on doing it for this long, sorting by difficulty or time is one of many features on this site that is long overdue, but we all know how feature suggestions are handled around here... Pretty sure we will get another two or three design updates or other BS before any of those hundreds actually useful feature suggestions are implemented. ;)

  4. How'd your plat unlock by itself...?

    1. dernop

      dernop

      This can, very rarely, happen if you get trophies on different consoles without syncing in-between. Let's say a trophy list has only two trophies plus a plat (just for simplicity) and you go ahead and get one trophy on your first PS4 and the second one on another PS4 (all without syncing obviously). Then you have all trophies, besides the plat. 
      At least on PS3 you had to restart the game after syncing up until the "setting up trophy data" part, that basically every game has, but not every game actively shows, to pop the plat on its own. Not entirely sure how this works on PS4, perhaps it automatically pops as soon as you sync the second PS4 or you also have to quickly start the game.

      I think we even had some disputes about this, but not sure. Personally i don't think it falls into the "impossible timestamp" territory, since it's easily explained. Even more so with super early review copies (?)... i mean over two weeks? How early did they send those copies out? 😂
      Perhaps Tempest24 is a reviewer and he played the game part at work, part at home, only taking their save with them, idk.

  5. Question to physical game collectors: Is there a list somewhere of all physical PS3 games that were published in Europe? Without games only published in the US/Japan etc.?

    1. dernop

      dernop

      i remember using the wikipedia list in the past for something like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_PlayStation_3_games_released_on_disc

      If you sort (descending) by PAL release date you'll get only disc games which had a PAL release.

      Not sure how complete or up to date this list is, tho.

  6. If trophies didnt exist, Anthem would never be played again... already found an issue with Explorer: Emerald Abyss trophy will not pop for me because it says Im missing a landmark but I already got it sooooo... I need to make a new pilot and get to the point where I can do free mode and just get all the Emerald Abyss marks again and hopefully have it trigger.

     

    What a pain!

      is it even possible to make a new pilot or reset your progress in anyway, since this is a "live service game"? afaik it's not really possible in Warframe for example.

      other than that i'm just some hours in and so far i'm still liking it, even tho i had one hard crash so far, the 95% loading bug and the game corrupting my savefile, which is not a problem in a game where your progress is server-side, fortunately ;)

  8. I am thinking I may of messed up. In Rise of the Tomb Raider I think I have purchased one of the items at the shop that the guide says not to purchase for the Avid Shopper trophy. One question can I complete the game and still purchase from the shop?

    1. dernop

      dernop

      i'm currently playing rise of the tomb raider, too and this was also something that heavily confused me.

      another (normal gameplay) guide i found simply stated, that there are three upgrade tool tiers and you can find two of them in chests. so if you buy the first one, you'll find #2 and #3. Of course if you buy TWO, i guess you will only find #3 in those chests, but not sure.

      I bought everything in the shop already and still had coins left btw, and i didn't even finish all my collectible hunting nor any dlc... 

       

      No promises, but: I would just continue normally and try to buy everything later. If you are missing coins, simply try to collect more and/or do the DLC first, where you may find even more coins.

  9. Haven't been as stoked for a game in years as I am for Sekiro.  Just gonna enjoy the crap out of my first playthrough and not bother with trophies.

  10. I don't know what repeat() does, but if that calls the function that has that while loop, you might meet un untimely end because of a stack overflow. 😜 — Your friendly Code Physician

      eating for sure (food poisoning, suffocation, or simply "too much" or "not enough"), many attack vectors there! and many people die in their sleep, too. you could also simply get a heart-attack while coding or gaming, so i guess "repeat()" can basically act as a "ensureAlive" measure to take necessary resuscitation actions, if needed.  :P

  13. This is ridiculous. I can't access PSN functions, mostly the Store, or play Warframe and this has been going on for like two or three days for me. A sale is ending at mightnight tonight and i gotta make a purchase so i hope it's settled before then or it gets extended.

      you're using the "SA" (saudi arabia) psn store, right? i can access that one it seems: https://store.playstation.com/en-sa/home/games

      perhaps some local problem and/or with your internet provider?

      i had tons of problems with psn last week too. :(

      have you tried purchasing the game you want via the online psn store on your pc? that mostly still works for me in these cases

  15. Is there a way to keep a game from updating while also staying connected to internet?

    When installing the game for the very first time, I reject the update but afterwards when I start the console again it will automatically try to download the update.

    1. dernop

      dernop

      no, that won't work of course. that's why i said "as long as you don't close/restart the game". what i implicitly meant by that: "as long as it didn't have time to install itself". ;)

      the update will just wait in the "Download" area to be installed and as long as it's still there and not installed, you can delete it!

       

      So if you ever, by accident, download an update for a game that you're currently playing: don't close the game and go delete the update right away.

      same here. either i stay offline or i just immediately pause the update as soon as i see the notification.

      good thing is: even if you forget about it, the update obviously won't install as long as the game is running. so as long as you don't close/restart the game you can even just delete a finished update download :)

  17. How can I get PS Plus on a german PSN account while living in the US? It keeps asking me for an ID looking card I obviously dont have. I put $20 on the account with a psn card but it does not allow that. If I can find out how to use that ID to get the free 14 day trial that would help to

    1. dernop

      dernop

      No, to buy the game with psn credit (so if you already got "money" on the account) an ID is not needed :)

      ID would be the easy part, but last time i checked you also had to register a payment option (CC, paypal) with PSN, because it's basically still a subscription and will be automatically renewed if you don't cancel it in time, so they need a CC or paypal even for the trial accounts.

      and to top this all off, said CC or paypal has to be from germany (german CC provider, bank account etc) too.

       

      i think it would be easier to just buy the game normally, unfortunately :(

      iirc, i still should have two copies of the DA:O (UE) because of an eBay faux-pas back then...

      if i still have that extra one (i definitely wanna keep one in my collection), i could sell it to you cheaply if you're interested? sending it as a normal, padded envelope to switzerland shouldn't cause any "importing" issues either, in my experience.

  21. Anyone here play The Technomancer? I am familiar with Spider's games so I know what I am getting in that regard but I am curious to what anyone here thought.

    1. dernop

      btw if you're unsure, but would like to try it out anyway, i would go for a used disc copy so you could at least get the platinum easily, if you so desire. the unpatched version let you switch the difficulty up to the highest after the last boss and you would still get the trophy for beating it on the highest difficulty, iirc.

      it also had a money exploit which made things easier.

      just mentioning this in case it would ease your mind having a "plan b" basically ;)

      definitely worth checking out and it's currently on its lowest price ever: https://psprices.com/region-us/game/259438/the-technomancer (9.99 is definitely worth trying it, i'd say)

      can't say anything about vikings, but i think i heard/read somewhere that it was quite glitchy?

      i loved it! got it quite early and did my first playthrough (or at least partial PT) without a guide and i rarely ever do that :P

      but indeed it is a "spider" game, like you mentioned, so i guess you know what you're up to. it was a bit clunky here and there, combat could've used more polishing and overall it felt a bit indy-ish, which isn't a bad thing ofc.

      "The Surge" later on somewhat reminded me heavily of this game. It basically tried to be some kind of sci-fi dark souls, too ;)

      when choosing a game, keep in mind that you can't do any kind of backup saves on blank accounts, not even USB backups! :)
