  1. TLoU 100% Left behind was pretty good. Might try and complete Mafia 3 next.

  2. The Last of Us plat is mine, just need to complete the Left Behind DLC for 100%, I think I will play something else for a while and take a break from TLoU before I do that though.

    1. DamagingRob

      DamagingRob

      Nice work! Left Behind is pretty short, and not nearly as hard as the main game on Grounded. Personally, I'd get it over and done with while I was in the zone. Lol.

  3. The Last of Us multiplayer grind is finally over! The first 12 weeks were fun, the second set of 12 were a bit of a drag. All I have to do now for the plat is fully upgrade all the weapons. Almost there!

    1. Dreggit

      Dreggit

      What was your favorite game mode? Did you record any games? I have a short playlist of games and highlights. 

       

      Okay guys. Imagine, instead of 24 weeks..   1 year in LOU2

    2. ee28max

      ee28max

      Multiplayer was fun. Good luck on the platinum :) 

       

      @Dreggit 52 weeks, oh man. That would one of biggest grinds in the history or multiplayer ever.

    3. Slipknot_rooney

      Slipknot_rooney

      @Dreggit Survivors was probably my favourite mode, then supply raid and then interrogation, all three can be pretty fun though. I didn't record any games, even after the 24 weeks I'm pretty average at the game. And 52 weeks? Nah, forget that...

       

      @ee28max Thank you! Got the plat this morning :)

  4. I managed to beat The Last of Us on Grounded mode, not as tough as I expected but still challenging at times. I actually think the challenge makes the game a lot better, didn't think much of my first playthrough, enjoyed it a lot more the second time around. Might actually be able to plat this thing!

  5. I can finally say I have played through The Last of Us. It was good, I wouldn't rave about it but I would recommend playing through at least once for the story, I'd give it a 7/10. Can I go straight into Grounded Mode plus? Any recommendations for obtaining 100%?

    1. Squirlruler

      Squirlruler

      There is a glitch that you can do Grounded in NG+ iirc

       

      Be careful with collectibles. They like to glitch :[

    2. Slipknot_rooney

      Slipknot_rooney

      @Squirlruler I'll look into that NG+ glitch, thanks! Worried about those collectibles now though. 

       

      @Sir-Syzygy Do you know what part of the story you are at? I think the game is actually quite short. It's definitely a slow game, and I didn't expect as much stealth which put me off at the beginning. I like stealth, just didn't think it would be as stealth heavy. The ending was alright, nothing blew my mind, it wasn't bad by any means. I don't know, it's just an okay game for me, I'd encourage you to finish the story though.

  6. So in Destiny 2, are guided games for the Leviathan raid not a thing? I can see it for the Last Wish raid and nightfall strikes. 

    1. Rowdi

      Rowdi

      I haven’t heard anything about guided games not being available for leviathan, but it’s not something I keep up on. You may find the100 or r/fireteams to be much more helpful. There’s a sub for sherpas linked somewhere in the r/fireteams subreddit too. 

  7. The Destiny 2 grind is no joke. Nearly two hours farming the escalation protocol boss tonight, on top of the farming I did last night, for an SMG which won't be used much... Progress is being made though.

    1. ERGOPROXY-DECAY

      ERGOPROXY-DECAY

      I remember farming months for a weapon back in my MMO days.

    2. KingGuy420

      KingGuy420

      Farming for the SMG is annoying. Mostly because the sniper and the shotgun are actually useful lol.

       

      Just be happy it starts at wave 6 after you beat the boss. It used to go back to wave 1 >.<

    3. Slipknot_rooney

      Slipknot_rooney

      Yeah if it went back to wave one I wouldn't have bothered at all, wow, I tip my hat to those that did it. Getting the Braytech weapons are pretty annoying too, having to collect four stems and then find the sleeper nodes... I just keep getting the AR...

  8. Dreading these God of War collectables... really want the platinum though.

  9. How difficult would The Last of Us be to plat these days? Finally bought the game, wondering how active the mp will be.

      I did it on ps3 last year and I never really had trouble connecting. If you want to do the mp maps for the DLC that's another story. 

    3. HaserPL

      HaserPL

      @Hemiak I play this game on a daily basis on PS3 and it always takes me a long time to connect. I live in EU and have a pretty decent connection.

    4. Slipknot_rooney

      Slipknot_rooney

      Thank for all the info, much appreciated. I have the PS4 version. I'm not too worried about the single player, just the multiplayer side of things seeing as the game is a few years old now.

  10. 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!

  11. 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 🤔

      Slipknot_rooney

      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.

    3. DamagingRob

      DamagingRob

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

    4. marvelboy10

      marvelboy10

      Great job! 👍

  12. 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? 

       

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

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

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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. 

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. 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... 

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. 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...

  25. 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.
