  1. Need for Speed (2015) is riving me insane. I'm so glad I'm done with the bulk of the base game content as this is, with no exaggeration, my least favorite racing game of all time. And that's coming from a fan of Need for Speed. NFS may have the best visual package in the game to date, but it also has the worst car selection, worst world design, worst car AI, worst cop AI, worst excuse for a story, worst physics engine, worst online policy and worst content selection of any racing game I've ever played. I could write a 3 page paper single-spaced on why I hate it so much. The second I get that Platinum this game is getting Yeeted straight off my hard drive.

      I got it on sale for $5 and it was still a waste of money

  2. Dang, wish I could have gotten in on this. Oh well, next time. I would like to inform everyone, especially @Dav9834, that the FAQ linked in the OP contains an incomplete list of songs, only having listings through SV 19 whereas this is SV 36. The correct list of banned songs can be found in the Database, also linked in the OP. Let me know if the rule excluding 2-4th place finishers from the banned song list is official and I'll get that squared away when I do the next update to the Database. EDIT: Whoops, could stand to read my own database now and then. This is SV 36, not 35.
  3. Absolutely. I've had my name since 2012 and I've hated it since 2013. The only reason I never made a new account was that I didn't want to lose my trophies, which I now have over 3k of. As long as I get to keep my achievements and saves, I'll gladly change my name if I can.
  4. Only 13 hours until the release of No Man's Sky Next! As a huge fan of the game, I'm very excited.



  5. I've been going over my work and it turns out that, due to a functional problem I didn't consider, this technique is actually extremely inaccurate for most sectors of the galaxy. I'm going to lock this thread until I fix the issue.
  6. Found a really small critter in No Man's Sky today. At 0.44m tall, the little spore guys I found floating around on a lush moon at the outer reaches of Euclid are nearly in the running for smallest airborne animal ever discovered.

      How's the game? I haven't played it yet but I'm planning to once the NEXT update rolls out!

      I think it's very fun. I'm only playing on and off until NEXT drops myself. If I were you I would definitely wait for NEXT as the game currently has some issues that the NMS community at large hopes will be fixed.

      Fantastic thanks!

  7. I really need to update my guides 😥

  8. just wanted to say there's something not correct in your NFS: HP Guide. the drive any corvetta in the rain trophy isn't a racer only. i just got it by playing in the intercepter event called "Flight Night" (COP event)

  9. Plat 33 is Stories: The Path of Destinies. Oof, this one is getting a scathing review when I update my plat showroom...

      I farmed the True Endings last level for about a hour or two and that was enough to get me max. Got around 11k every 6 minutes.

      Well done! 💯

  10. Made several welcome adjustments to my About Me, including fixing a broken link (everything on this site broke since the last time I was on), bringing back a better backlog, and fixing the now incredibly-outdated music selection in my bio.

  11. Need to update my platinum showroom soon... Haven't posted there since plat 24 and I'm on 31 now 😬

  12. When you do use my tool (henceforth referred to as the AAB Process by me), remember that the Process takes a field of play that spans about 5,000 coordinate units and crushes it down into 15. A noticeable change in your position is only going to occur about every 8,000 light years of normal travel unless you use a black hole or other method of teleporting. Happy flying though
  13. Been away for a while. Right now I'm playing No Man's Sky.

    1. Masamune


      Yeah, been a while since I've seen you here. xD 

    2. PooPooBlast


      Oo nice! I'm planning to play it soon. How is it? :)

      I quite like it. It's not for everyone though.



  14. I've been playing No Man's Sky for a while now, and I thought I'd do an exploration of a not much talked-about game feature. I've created a rough way to map out one's exact location in the world of No Man's Sky. It is in three steps, and requires the game, skill with a calculator (unfortunately) and access to two websites. Step 1: While playing No Man's Sky after the 1.3 patch, you are not able to craft and place a Signal Booster from 50 Iron and 25 Plutonium. The Signal Booster's main purpose is to show the locations of nearby shrines and places of interest, but it has one other feature. When the Booster interface is opened, at the bottom left corner of the screen will be displayed a chunk of code in this format: XXXX:XXXX:XXXX:XXXX:XXXX. That is, a set of 4:4:4:4:4 characters. The important ones are the middle three. For example, the middle three blocks of one code on my PS4 are 08D4:0080:0115. Take a picture of them or write them down. Step 2: Navigate to the website Pilgrim Star Path website on your phone or computer, or Google search "Pilgrim Star Path" if you can't use the link. When you get to the site, you should see a box asking for your coordinates. Enter your code into it in the same format you see in your game. You'll see another box appear with XYZ coordinates. The "pos" line is your location! The Pilgrim Star Path site does show you a 2D map, but it would be even cooler if you could see what that location looked like in 3D, right? Well this is where the math comes in. Step 3: Navigate to your favorite 3D plotter site (I highly recommend the CPM Plotter) and get out a calculator. See, the coordinates you get from the Pilgrim Star Path site are perfectly fine, but they're a tiny bit too massive to be displayed on a conventional 3D graph. We'll need to shrink them down a bit. Luckily, I've created a pair of formulas that make conversion a snap. Before you start, I recommend that you get comfortable with stored variables on your calculator (or if you don't want to do that, just using raw numbers to 5 decimal places works fine too). You'll need these two numbers: A = (log(5000)/log(15)) or about 3.14514 B = (log(311.355)/log(15)) or about 2.11995 IMPORTANT! The Pilgrim Star Path site displays the galaxy map in an unconventional top-down XZ plane. For your numbers to be accurate, you need to use use the y value for your z coordinate and vice versa. If the site shows you the point (2260, 128, 277), your actual location is (2260, 277, 128). To get your graphable coordinates, you just need to take the A'th root of your x and y coordinates, and the B'th root of your Z coordinate. Once you have your points, you can plot them out on the grapher and get a very nice map of your location in the universe! If you want, you can add a point for the galactic core, which I've calculated lies at the point (7.5, 7.5, 10.81663), if you'd like a reference point. If you're confused about the scale, the world of NMS appears to exist in the first octant where all values are positive. If your graphed points are all in the same wedge of the graph, that's good. This method works because the galaxy in NMS is assumed to be a smushed sphere with an XY radius of 2,500 and a height of ~312. Taking the A'th root of 5000 (the maximum xy value you can get from the Pilgrim Star Path website) returns 15, a perfect corner of a 15x15 graph. The same is true of taking the B'th root of 311.255, so this method works. I know it's a lot of math, but I hope my process seems cool to someone out there. Thanks for reading!
