  1. Not gonna lie to you, I probably wouldn't have noticed it if people hadn't pointed it out.
  2. I would say these events are certainly relevant. That said, I love watching the shows at E3 but I don't think it's necessary in this day and age as each of the big 3 could have their own separate events and it'd get the point across all the same on their own time.
  3. I don't really care. It's their profile, they can do what they want with it. That said, if you do it and then brag about your completion I can't really fault people giving you grief about it.
  4. I don't think they're overrated, they're just not for everybody.
  5. You can unlock all of the online trophies without unlocking any characters but if you want to get a lot of the online titles you'll want to do it after unlocking characters in Galaxy Mode iirc. This game lets you earn a lot of titles offline as well which helps. Based on how I got the trophies, I got around 50 titles or so online and then finished up the rest offline. I'd offer more detail but I did the online back in 2016 and don't remember the specifics, sorry.
  6. Platinum #124: Gaia's Guardian (Final Fantasy VII) This was a trip. I hadn't played the game in it's entirety on PS1 so I didn't have the nostalgia factor going in but I sure can see why people did. The game has aged poorly in some regards but the overall gameplay and story are solid. I also think playing through this will help me appreciate the things they do with the remake a bit more as there were definitely some memorable moments I'm looking forward to seeing again.
  7. So the episode has aired, it just hasn’t aired in English. That makes your initial post a bit misleading. It sucks you were spoiled but that’s the risk when watching it on a delay. I’ve had similar situations with MHA, especially with this long break. I looked it up and I have to wonder why people would keep reading it if they’re worried about spoilers when the DLC is for this arc 😂? Especially if it’s at the decision and you see the character next to the title. It’s one of those situations where it was definitely a misstep by them but you kinda played yourself at the same time.
  8. The fact he’d have Titan power has been confirmed for a couple weeks. I’m guessing they’re just mad they hadn’t shown his form yet? Seems a bit silly to me but who knows.
  9. Can't relate. Sucks that it happened but at least you've got something to play that you're enjoying in the classic consoles.
  10. Always get a kick out of some members of this forum and their use of the term "forced". This is an incentive and it's one many different companies/businesses use to get people to be a member. The most common example I can think of would be gas stations wanting you to sign up as a member in order to get a reduced price. I don't think it's "Bullshit" in the slightest, it's just marketing. Thiis is the primary incentive to get PS+ for me, online play being a close second. I saved $30 on games in this sale alone, which covers most of what I paid for my PS+ subscription. Plus isn't that expensive and you can even find it at a reduced rate throughout the year, typically up to 50% off. Pretty tough to argue it isn't worth it, in my opinion.
  11. I'm not sure if this thread should be making me laugh or cry.
  12. But you're implying that you can't have both. They can acknowledge it being a decent game while still using the debug mode. Many people popped the achievements on Fallout 3 PC with commands but still understand it's a good game. I don't think a game being an easy completion is a blight on it's reputation, really. It feels as if you're taking it personally that a lot of people don't care about the thing you like and are just playing it for the easy completion and that's just unhealthy. I get that it's a bummer Jak hasn't really been that relevant since PS2 and you wish more people would care about the series as a whole but I'm not sure this is the best way to channel that enthusiasm. I think the Jak 2 thing was 2 or 3 years ago? It was around the time I started getting on the CB less. I agree that people should at least give the game a go before they use debug but I also understand that I shouldn't expect people to play my way. I feel the same way about online stuff for the most part. If the game isn't dead I try to play it out but I know some people just want to get their stuff done immediately to be done with it so they can get to the next game in the backlog.
  13. The problem with this logic is that you're speaking as if Jak was a hot topic of conversation to begin with. It rarely comes up, if at all, and the only time it does it's primarily in regards to the first game as that's the one people played most it seems. This debug mode isn't ruining it's reputation because it didn't really have one to begin with, it was primarily a non-factor before people were talking about the debug mode. Also, they were often referred to as freebie/quick platinums before the debug mode was out. The only time I heard somebody say they were hard was when you listed Jak 2 as one of your "hardest platinums" back in the CB. You say that the trophy hunting community has become far more concerned with trophies than games yet you're the one who's making it out as if the fact it has easy trophies via debug mode completely negates what you believe is a good game. Comes off as a bit hypocritical, honestly.
  14. I've always liked completing my games so I doubt this site disappearing would change things much. It's a cool resource but that's about it.
  15. People in this thread are responding as if reviews are supposed to tell them how they'll respond to a game as an individual. Reviews are just one person giving their take on a game, nothing more. Reviewers aren't telling you this is how you'll feel about a game (for the most part), they're simply stating their experience and it's up to the readers to find out which reviewers more or less share similar views to their own.
