  1. In Destiny 2 all the gear drops are at 260 power for legendary and 255 for rare. Is this a cap for the base game? Do I need the DLC to advance further and get more powerful gear? 

    1. SlimSanta94

      SlimSanta94

      Yeah the max power level is 600, which you need all DLC's to be able to reach.

    2. Slipknot_rooney

      Slipknot_rooney

      The guide for the raid in the base game recommends level 300, how is it possible to complete then without DLC? Or have Bungie just screwed up?

       

      Thanks for letting me know anyway!

  2. Destroy All Humans platinum, as fun as I remember it and just as difficult too, the grind at the end wasn't bad and it only crashed once, even then that was just from blowing up lots of vehicles. What to plat next 🤔

      Just got the Titanfall 2 plat done, two plats in one day, that is a very rare thing for me. That should clear up some space for RDR2.

      Nicely done! I need to play both of those games, one of these days..

      Great job! 👍

  3. So the Darksiders 3 Apocalypse Edition is... €400... wow. The contents look cool, but not quite €400 cool.

    1. Vanilla

      Vanilla

      i think it's decent for the price, i'd love to have all that but i dont have the space for the statues

    2. Slipknot_rooney

      Slipknot_rooney

      I'd like to have them too as I love this kind of thing but they are just cheap plastic statues really, the wall scroll looks cool, I just can't see how this is worth €400.

       

      I might just go for the collectors edition, depending on how my money situation is over the coming weeks.

       

      Have you seen this one? 

       

  4. Are curved monitors worth a damn or just a gimmick that died off? 

  5. Finally all side objectives in Spider-Man complete, just have to finish the story for the platinum. Might get back to Mafia III afterwards.

  6. Just tried out Fortnite for the first time, it's tough, one kill in four games.... Don't think I'll be playing too often.

  7. I finally got the platinum for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. Took me a while but this week I decided I was going to at least complete all the story missions in free play mode, after that it was just free roam which is a lot of fun and so I ended up getting the plat, which wasn't even my plan earlier in the week. Nice to have it done though, my first LEGO platinum!

      You guys have any idea if PSN is still down? I haven't been able to go online all day.

  8. My last platinum was on the 1st of April, until today! Grand Theft Auto San Andreas finally done, and with it, the trilogy is complete.

      So which one is your favorite of the trilogy 3, Vice City, or San Andreas 

    3. ee28max

      ee28max

      Well done! 💯

      San Andreas is my all-time favorite Grand Theft Auto game. 

    4. Slipknot_rooney

      Slipknot_rooney

      @Temmie Ugh, those damn location changes, having to look up were it moved to, I did anyway. I'd also like to see that glitch! Those are the best kind of glitches, funny, but doesn't ruin your game. The vigilante glitch was a favourite of mine.

       

      @DamagingRob Thank you! Grinding out those 4k kills was work, not a lot of fun I can tell you, but it's done now and I have my platinum so I won't complain!

       

      @Yuna4353 Vice City is my favourite, I played it the most as a kid and I love the setting and characters. I always had a good time listening to V Rock and Lazlow too. San Andreas is great too but for me Vice City edges it.

       

      @ee28max It's a great game that's for sure! I haven't played GTA V so I can't say how it compares but against the others, it's definitely up there at the top.

  9. My room mate has a PS2 lying around so yesterday after work I decided I would try out my copy of MediEvil, didn't expect it to work with all the scratches but it did! No issues whatsoever, shame his memory card doesn't work though. I also tried out Fifa Street for a few minutes and Spyro A Hero's Tail. 

  10. In the space of one hour, my PS4 shut itself down twice, and went into rest mode twice, while I'm in the middle of playing the game. Absolutely hate the launch PS4 model, causing me nothing but grief now. Spotted a PS4 Pro + God of War + One PlayLink game (One from a selection of four) for €440, considering picking that up.

    1. donut_plz

      donut_plz

      Do it! Happy with my Pro after going through something similar with my launch PS4 too.

    2. Slipknot_rooney

      Slipknot_rooney

      Might pick it up tomorrow and be done with it. Save me some hassle in the future, hoping it will run VR a bit better too.

  11. This War of Mine is pretty interesting, not a clue what to do though or what to prioritise. Everyone is always hungry and I can't carry back everything I need from scavenging. More planning required I guess, and plenty to learn.

      Stoves are for cooking and heaters are for keeping it warm. If you don’t cook food you will go through it very quick. With raw food, water and vegetables you can cook once and get 2 meals out of it. I highly suggest using this wiki as it tells you everything you need to know including which areas have enemies and what tools you need for scavenging. Traps you will need to wait several days for but you will find the bulk of food you need by scavenging.

       

      At the start of a game you can make everyone go 3 days with out food before they are very hungry so get a metal workbench, beds, a stove and a water filter built, bringing back materials needed to make them as well as a bit of food then alternate between getting materials and food and only feed people every second day to make food last.

    3. Slipknot_rooney

      Slipknot_rooney

      I managed to take out that soldier before he attacked the woman, still not fond of the combat in the game. things got better though and I managed to get some food, some people even dropped by and gave me 5 vegetables! 

       

      Thinks it's time to venture out to the areas with danger marked on them, I assume all the good loot is there. Slowly getting the hang of the game now, I'll do some reading now on the combat, hopefully that will help me out tomorrow.

       

      Any point in kids for the game? Or do they just give the game a little extra challenge, one more person to feed etc.

    4. The Shopkeeper

      The Shopkeeper

      Kids are extra challenge because they can't do anything useful unless you teach them.

       

      Personally I'd say don't use a wiki but try to figure out stuff on your own. There's different ways to a successful playthrough.

  12. It might be time to invest in a new console or upgrade my PC, I can't deal with my PS4 switching itself on and off anymore, doing my head in. It's done it three times now in the space of 20 minutes, I just want to enjoy a game this evening... 

  13. Not really sure what to make of the new Venom trailer. 

    1. starcrunch061

      starcrunch061

      So I just watched it myself. Is there some point where we see that the alien was attached to Spider-man? If not, why does Venom resemble Spider-man? 

       

      I don't dislike the idea of Eddie Brock being a decent person (he always seemed like such an ass in the comics), but I don't really get it. But, maybe the movie will explain it.

    2. Slipknot_rooney

      Slipknot_rooney

      From what I know, the movie is based on the Lethal Protector series and Planet of The Symbiotes, so this movie takes place after the symbiote had already bonded with Spider-Man.

       

      Hopefully the movie will be great, I'll be cautiously optimistic though.

  14. I thought HDR was automatically enabled as long as the PS4 and TV were connected, turns out that is not the case, only took me four months after buying a new TV to figure that out... 

    1. snakebit10

      snakebit10

      Yeah, when it was announced it said it would have to be enabled on the Console and TV.

  15. My PS4 has an awful habit lately of switching itself on and off and I always end up having to let it repair itself and the portable hard drive. It may end up flying out the window at some point over the next few days...

  16. Didn't realise Crash Bandicoot was coming to Steam, it's up for pre-order and releases on July 10th. Available for Xbox too?

      I'm hoping the rumored Spyro remaster is true.

    3. Slipknot_rooney

      Slipknot_rooney

      Seeing as MediEvil is getting a remaster I expect Spyro to happen, I can't see a reason why they wouldn't do it, it would sell just as well as Crash did I think.

    4. DamagingRob

      DamagingRob

      MediEvil is still owned by Sony, though. A Spyro remaster would be up to Activision. It would be nice, and they may do it based on Crash's success. Just wouldn't get my hopes up too high.

  17. Just finished Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice and I must say I'm quite impressed with it. Wasn't too keen at first but over time I really got into it. Different from what I usually play and not too long or too short, a nice balance. I'll definitely play through it again at some point.

      I can't recall listen to some good music during the fight. I was way to busy with all the enemies. Mmh, now I'm curious and have to go to Youtube :D

       

    3. Slipknot_rooney

      Slipknot_rooney

      Is it this song? 

       

    4. Temmie

      Temmie

      @Slipknot_rooney, that's the one.  It originally appealed to me because I like songs with chanting in it, like the Forest Temple from Ocarina of Time.

  18. 30 hours (roughly) to download Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice. 5GB in, 23 hours to go...I hope it's as good as I've heard it is.

      Enjoy! I personally had a lot of fun with Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice. I would go even as far to say that it changed my life. Should you require any assistance, feel free to refer to my Trophy Guide:eyebrow:

    3. Slipknot_rooney

      Slipknot_rooney

      @KingGuy420 A minute?! What I would give for such a connection. I just tried out a speed test, 1.6mbps... And we're probably charged more than you, Ireland has some of the most expensive prices for broadband, yet we are one of the worst in the world for speeds. Apparently I should have a much better (fibre) connection available in the second half of 2018, not likely. I could rant for days about my connection, can't stand it. But yes, enjoy your connection! 

       

      @ddracarys I will! Eventually! Had to pause at 6GB because from 4PM onwards things get worse in terms of download speed. 16GB to go! I am looking forward to playing it though, heard some really good things about it, and I avoided watching as much videos on it as possible so I can jump in blind and have it all be new to me. I'll definitely check out your guide, but after one playthrough to avoid spoilers in trophy descriptions. I'm just guessing that they have spoilers.

    4. ddracarys

      ddracarys

      @Slipknot_rooney Yeah, you're right, there are spoilers within the trophies. At least they are all natural though, so you only really need a collectable guide out for that single trophy. Unless you want to go in completely blind. However you approach the trophies though, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I understand a lot of people felt it was lacking, but I personally really enjoyed what Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice had to offer.

  19. I renewed my PS+ subscription earlier for 12 months while the 12 for 15 months deal is going on, but I haven't received the extra 3 months, it's telling me I'll have to renew 12 months from now. Have I missed some sort of requirement? Had a look again on the store but I couldn't spot anything, I assumed if you bought 12 months the extra three would be automatically added on.

    1. bezdomnekoty

      bezdomnekoty

      I think they are going to add these extra 3 months when the promotion will end.

  20. I've only had my new portable hard drive for about an hour and I'm loving it, all this new space! I should have bought one a lot sooner.

  21. The new Tomb Raider trailer looks pretty good. 

     

     

     

  22. Played Life is Strange episode four last night, the beginning was a little sad and the episode ended with a bang. Looking forward to episode five, so many questions. 

  23. Started The Witcher 3 in April and I still haven't finished the story, the game doesn't suck me in at all or have me wanting to play more. Usually I'm all over this kind of game but it's not really doing it for me and I don't know why. I'll finish it though, eventually...

    1. The Shopkeeper

      The Shopkeeper

      Took me three tries to get into the game but I'm glad I finally followed through, that game was very good. Yeah the combat is off-putting but it's one of the best dark high-fantasy stories around.

    2. Slipknot_rooney

      Slipknot_rooney

      Yeah I'll keep playing and hopefully it will hook me eventually. I'd really like some new armour though, the basic Griffin armour is boring to look at now, do you have to find new schematic things to get better Griffin armour? I had a quick look online this morning but couldn't find anything other than materials I'd need.

    3. The Shopkeeper

      The Shopkeeper

      I have no clue - I didn't like the combat the first time I tried the game so in the end I just played on easy to enjoy the story. I chose armour that looked good, I don't think I did any schematic building ever.

  24. Didn't expect to like Life Is Strange very much but I'm really into it, just finished the second episode and I was a little sorry it ended. Three more to go though!

      This game was one of my first few VNs. I went into it with no expectations and was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed it. Glad you are too!

    3. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Game was hella ;) amazing . No seriously I made it my 75th :) . It immediately caught my attention during ep1 and was hooked. Tbh without PS plus, I wouldn't have tried it simply because I judged the game based on just a glance. Butttt, it's one of those games where I can't bring myself to play it again no matter how good it is just because all of the wow factor and the climax and feeing of suspense is gone which is basically the selling point of the game.

       

       

    4. Slipknot_rooney

      Slipknot_rooney

      I only have it because of PS+ too. I imagined it would be a lot like the TellTale games, pretty "meh", although Tales From The Borderlands was very good, and I also judged it from a glance too. I'm not sure why I think this is so much better though, maybe it's just the characters. 

  25. The Gauntlet grind fest is finally over, only took a little under two years to do... I might actually get the damn plat now.

      its the same wave for us every time (34/35 i think) - Elf is the best IMO

      I re-installed it to slowly grind it out. It's a fun game, but man they really were taking the piss with those trophies.

    4. Slipknot_rooney

      Slipknot_rooney

      Most of the time I've spent on the game was grinding out all those kills. Good game, but annoying grind like you said. For the Orcs and Grunts I used a hairband to hold the right stick down so I only had to press circle every now and then like the videos on YouTube. So I listened to the Ricky Gervais show and had a good laugh while I pressed circle every few seconds.Took hours to do but listening to the podcast really helped so I'd recommend listening to something if you can, and to use a second controller, apparently more enemies spawn that way. Good luck with it!
