    Wait... is it intentional? If it is, I'm NEVER buying a PS5. It's getting to the point where I wish the PS5 would be a financial failure.

     

    I'm sorry, I'm just very upset right now. I lost a lot of respect for Sony for the time being.

     

    EDIT: I found a workaround for North American Vita users here: 

     

    Still, Sony had better fix the Vita store soon...

    Son of a.....! The link worked!!!! Thank you!, Thank you!, Thank you!

    Don't worry about not trying to kill civilians as it's bugged, that's what kept me busy the longest, 

     

    Kite the enemies away, they don't shoot at you if they're far away from you which makes it super easy.

     

    Also don't worry about preservering ammo too much. Once you get a hang of it it gets easier l, definitely the first 2 levels are hardest.

     

     

     

    About 6 hours. Bit of a learning curve at first but nothing too bad.

    Keep your flamethrower to the end of level 2 to kill the boss in 2 seconds.

     

    This is really good and sound advice and helped me out a lot with getting the platinum!

  3. It all depends on the extent of backwards compatibility on day 1. Like OP stated, my backlog of PS3 & PS4 games is pretty insane and a day 1 purchase wouldn't make much sense for me without a highly available BC to keep me busy for awhile. The PS2 and PS3 initial releases were good for this imo, so hopefully Sony replicates what was done with those.

  4. Meh. Every month since Sony discontinued free PS3 and Vita games, I miss them more and more.

     

    I've already played through the entire Bioshock series on PS3 and hate remasters and I've never been a fan of the Sims series or VR.

     

    Oh well, 3 less games to join the backlog I suppose.

    I see the body oil just beyond a wall in the mountains.  Anyone know how to reach it?

     

     

    Edit:  The location of the portal needed to reach this item is located directly above the portal entrance to the second screen.  Use the ledge high up and to the right and your double jump gun, and with a wind gust to the left, you should reach it.

     

    I see the portal that you are talking about but every time I go through it, my guy explodes at what looks like another portal on some random part of the screen. Any advice?

    I have trouble getting the Record Score trophy can somebody explain exactly what i need to do?

    which mode to play ect

     

    A little late in responding: but I ran into this issue too. You have to hit the big button in the middle of the controller once you've entered into HI-SCORE MODE and choose the reset score option. Once I did that then the option to record my score came up after I got a Game Over.

  8. I haven't a clue. I finished the original PSOne game back during its original release when I was in high school (showing my age here) and to this day, I still think that it has one of the best battle systems of the FF series and some of the most rewarding side quests as well.

     

    I always thought FFII was considered the red headed stepchild of the series though (I don't think it's a bad entry either btw).

    I just done the first episode of this game. I start the second now. I have to say I think this game is far too political in my opinion. Or should I say politically correct. Drugs are "cool", hunting deer is "bad", people blaming obvious hipsters are "mean", the security guard is a "bad guy" and the upper-class are necessarily "bad guys". Except that I got the opposite political views I don't like the game. It's a trash game with a trash soundtrack... OK, I been playing more boring games. So it's a little entertaining at least (well made) despite I don't like the core values that being promoted here. I do only play this for the very fast and easy platinum. To boost my PSN profile and gaining a little rank on the leatherboard on PSNP is what makes it funny. 

     

    I wished Square Enix could bring up some better stuff than this "hipster" thing. They used to make such good stuff especially the older FF. Ohh... btw, just to mention how incredibly immature those (higher education!?) students are for their given age. When I was working on my bachelor my classmates didn't act like kids in elementary school. It's so ridiculous... and not too realistic. 

     

    Thanks for the warning. All the above things make me sick too 😛

    So what are you saying? :)

     

     

    Hard disagree. She wanted to be Billy Badass and make a point with Mossador and it blew up in her face.

     

     

    The very first one, after she'd fallen in love with Drogo.

     

     

    What difference does it make? She reneged on her business transaction with a "bad" guy by burning him horribly. Sure, it was great to see and I cheered her on, but still. Perspective.

     

     

     

    So she's both crazy and incompetent then. In all seriousness though, I'd hardly call her ignoring the plight of innocents as they starved in the streets indicative of one being new to the game. Again though, perspective.

     

     

    Perspective, perspective, perspective.

     

    Daenerys wants it all, no matter the cost.

     

    “Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.” -- Machiavelli

     

    We're arriving at totally different conclusions because our perspective differs on a few things. I find that fascinating.

     

    • I'm saying she ended up falling in love with the guy - I don't think that leads to burning an entire city full of innocent people
    • Not really. She wrestled with the idea before doing so. It was a flawed attempt to establish some sort of law and order with the old powers no longer being in place.
    • That wasn't her doing, it was Drogo's, before learning how to influence his actions. Which actually indirectly caused his death. She convinced him not to kill the witch and well we know the rest...
    • I don't know - taking young men away from their families, castrating them, robbing them of any real identity, physically abusing them...nope, no real difference there 😏👌 . She reneged on her business transaction....you mean she outsmarted human trafficers at their own game? I'd hardly call any of that "city burning insanity"
    • I would call that more incompetent at that point. Again, we're talking about someone who just found their strength and was still learning about seizing power. That doesn't make her crazy, just unseasoned.
    • Well murderous insane people, usually don't give folks an opportunity not to die before killing them...very much unlike what we saw last night.

     

    The Machiavelli quote proves my point. That's not insane, its philosophical approach ruling.

     

    I'd agree to an extent, I just fail to see how any of the examples you've provided could be interpreted as insane or be any inkling as to how a person committing those actions could burn an entire kingdom down when presented with more options.

    Is it really so sudden, though? The only thing that's changed for me is perspective:

     

    From the beginning we're invested in Daenerys because she's introduced as a young girl bound by marriage to a foreign man and culture. Perspective.

     

    • She was raped and forced to walk barefoot across a desert, and yet we didn't question her sanity.
    • She ordered the execution of Mossador, which in turn empowered the Sons of the Harpy to rise up and begin their guerrilla campaign. Hundreds if not thousands are slaughtered, and yet we didn't question her sanity because she was the lesser of two evils.
    • She led a foreign horde that raided and pillaged innocent villages, and yet we didn't question her sanity because she was the lesser of two evils.
    • She's buried people alive and even burned a slave trade to a crisp after selling him one of her dragons in exchange for the Unsullied, and yet we didn't question her sanity because she was the lesser of two evils.
    • She sacked and conquered three cities without putting into place a proper government to replace the one she overthrew, and yet we didn't question her sanity because she was the lesser of two evils.
    • She burned men alive simply for not kneeling, and yet we didn't question her sanity because she was the lesser of two evils.

    There is no more evil left, and yet Daenerys still continues her conquest; she's no longer the lesser of two evils, and characters in the show are finally realizing this. Perspective.

     

    I've known Daenerys was batshit crazy for a few seasons now, and my wife has never liked her as she refused to buy into her line of reasoning for the things she has done/does. The reason people are unable to come to terms with her "sudden" change is because they refuse to see how the writers manipulated their perspective for the entire series.

     

    • She also fell in love with the Drogo (not rationalizing rape but just saying...)
    • That wasn't insanity, just bad decision making. She wouldn't be the first to do so...see Tyrion and Varys from this past episode
    • What season was this?
    • THEY WERE SLAVERS!!!
    • Again, not insanity. Just being green to having power.
    • Makes sense in terms of instilling a sense of fear to those you plan to rule. She gave them the option of submission and they challenged her on her promise of death for not doing so. She had to prove that she is a woman of her word - not insanity

    "No More Evil Left"???? Please name another character on the show who SUCCESSFULLY destroyed an entire kingdom! And we can ignore their surrender...

     

    And maybe you and your wife did pick up on certain things with Dany but I'm saying it shouldn't have been so subtle up to this point. Geoffry, Ramsey, Cersi, the Night King...all did things that shocked and disgusted us but the show was very up front about what they were.

    I'm sad. I'm really sad. I get it, the madness of Targaryen and so, but Dany didn't deserve this ending. She became the tyrant, like the ones she swore to destroy. Seven seasons being a hero (regardless being merciless in some cases), to become villain in five episodes.

    And that, just to begin. This chapter is very hard to swallow.

     

    I agree with this 100%

     

    I have yet to hear or read an explanation of her actions that makes any coherent sense. If the writers wanted to go down this road, they could have done a better job taking us down her trip to madness. It comes across like the producers were going for a "Red Wedding" type of shock value rather than tying the story up in a way that makes sense. During the past seasons, a lot of the audience (including myself) were shocked by the extent that the other villains went to for power but not really surprised much by the person who did it.

     

    And as far as "this person" and "that person" close to Dany dying, this isn't the first time she's lost people close to her but didn't decide to go all Anakin Skywalker on everyone. Targaryen or not, severe mental illness in someone shouldn't just make its grand appearance in a well developed character during the final season of said character's show.

     

    I'm not going to crap on the entire season like I've seen and heard a lot of other folks doing because I have been enjoying it up to this point...just not the sudden change in Dany's personality.
