  1. 3/4 of the way through the year now! September 2020 Predictions Marvel's Spider-Man (2018)4 God of War (2018)
  2. I haven't played the game yet, but I played Borderlands 2 on every platform in existence, got double Plats and 100% on 360, and I remember for the same explorer trophies that people thought they were bugged when in reality there were just numerous locations that didn't count as named locations, but still needed to be discovered. Most should have been discovered through normal gameplay, but it was possible to miss them. The advice was to look at each map for gray areas and for anywhere the map edge was broken as it meant a small nook that wasn't yet discovered. So maybe check all your maps to make sure you have every inch of the map discovered?
  3. Totally forgot about this thread... My 200th Platinum was Horizon: Zero Dawn on June 10th, 2019. I'm currently at 257 Plats, so I should be able to post to the 300 Plat thread... soon? lol
  4. I find the controversy over the teams name to be interesting. I'd like to share a quote from this article: https://www.npr.org/sections/codeswitch/2013/09/09/220654611/are-you-ready-for-some-controversy-the-history-of-redskin "But where did the word "redskin" come from? Many dictionaries and history books say the term came about in reference to the Beothuk tribe of what is now Newfoundland, Canada. The Beothuk were said to paint their bodies with red ochre, leading white settlers to refer to them as "red men." According to Smithsonian historian Ives Goddard, early historical records indicate that "Redskin" was used as a self-identifier by Native Americans to differentiate between the two races. Goddard found that the first use of the word "redskin" came in 1769, in negotiations between the Piankashaws and Col. John Wilkins. Throughout the 1800s, the word was frequently used by Native Americans as they negotiated with the French and later the Americans." So in other words, the name is a reference to the Beothuk tribe who painted themselves red, and Native Americans used the word as a self-identifier to differentiate themselves from other races. Now I understand that over time things change, and meanings of words that are used inappropriately for many years can take on a completely new meaning. But I still find the history of the word interesting. The irony is, that the new name options I've seen floating around are only a little better in today's perpetually offended climate. So give it 10-20 years, and people will once again be losing their minds over how offensive the new name is. Might as well just go the Prince route and turn themselves into a symbol at this point. It might be the safest option.
  5. Another month, another guess that won't amount to much, I'm sure. August 2020 Predictions Marvel's Spider-Man (2018) God of War (2018)
  6. I just watched Old Guard. I enjoyed it. I really hope they make a sequel (it's supposed to be a trilogy, but you know how Netflix is, if it doesn't get 400 billion views in its first 10 minutes they consider it a failure).
  7. I wanted to be fancy and try to find something that's technically easier than Mayo, but I just can't. I have some very easy games on my account, but that one will probably never get beat as the easiest. So yeah, my picks are the exact same as Joker's ^^ GT5 was by far the hardest, and not just cause it was grindy (which it was), but because there were SO many really difficult timed races: from the gold times in the Vettel challenge to the nurburgring GT-R time trial and back to the gold times in the license tests (including the fact that Polyphony decided to extend the finish line on some tracks in later patches to make the gold times for license tests even harder!)... hell, to just getting gold in everything!... it was rough. Fun game if you ignore platinum, but absolute nightmare for completionists (like me).
  8. I'm not adding or changing any games, but You Don't Know Jack went down to Ultra Rare, so that gives me 14 UR games, which bumps me up a tier. Thanks!
  9. So $70 is the new base price. DLC will go from $10 to $15 and $15 to $20 per piece. Season Passes will likely double in price and justify it by throwing in some avatars. Physical editions with toys will go from $200 to $300. And I'll keep buying base game discs new, but on sale a few months later for $10-$20 as I do now. Of course, I won't do it until 2023 when I actually get the console when it's on sale for $199.
  10. https://mafiagame.com/news/mafia-patch-june-2020/ https://updatecrazy.com/mafia-3-update-version-1-12-changelog-june-18-2020/ v1.12 (they skipped 1.11 for some reason) doesn't mention any trophy related fixes. Looks like they only fixed graphics.
  11. Green check marks are for 100% only lists (like DLC and psn arcade titles). If the list has a Platinum, then the completion symbol will be a trophy icon instead of a check mark.
  12. January 2018: 685 Trophies (15 of which were Platinum)
  13. Already have it from PS+, so no way to get the permanently free version, afaik.
  14. I loved the original. I played it new when I was in high school and have played it numerous times since. I recently played it on PS4. I saved it for a while because I wanted to make it a special milestone Platinum (250th!). The original is fantastic. Since the remake was announced, I've been nervous. Every bit of info I hear makes me more nervous. After seeing the game, playing the demo, reading the reviews, and hearing the feedback from players like you (who are like me), I am confident I will never play this remake. I don't trust them to not f--k it up, and from what my own eyes and ears tell me, they already did. Even if this wasn't the 1st of 7 parts (or whatever), and the whole game was already released, I still wouldn't be interested. Too many changes, needles additions and glaring holes. But I'm certainly not paying $300 for a single video game. People who say 'then just stick to the original'.... Yeah, I will! I love the point you're making here. It's a very valid and pertinent point. I wish others could hear what you're saying instead of defending a game just for... reasons. It makes me think of Last Action Hero (if you've seen it? If not... spoilers!) when Jack gets shot and is in severe pain, losing blood and dying and is so confused until he returns to the screen and his captain tells him it's only a flesh wound and he needs to walk it off. Mediocre movie, but one of the best examples of self-acknowledgement of the silliness in action movies when it comes to injury and bodily harm.
  15. Looks like you're still 5 cards shy of a deck. You've completed 2 suits (Hearts and Diamonds), but a deck is 52 cards.
