  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Can't relate. Sucks that it happened but at least you've got something to play that you're enjoying in the classic consoles.
  5. 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.
  6. I'm not sure if this thread should be making me laugh or cry.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Platinum #117: Last Words (NieR: Automata) I had heard a ton of good things going in to this game and I certainly wasn't disappointed. There were a few times the lack of auto-save and a spontaneous "Bad end" cost me a bit of time and that was irksome, however the story beats and solid hack n' slash gameplay more than made up for it. The gameplay can be as simple or deep as you'd like given the auto-chips are available for players who are struggling and the game can pose a decent challenge on higher difficulties if you're playing manually. There are some solid customization options with the skill chips and the different pod abilities/weapon types. It's also a good game for people who want a "freebie" plat as you can essentially purchase any of the longer trophies after you complete the third playthrough, which doesn't take all that long. Also, the music is pretty great as well. Strongly recommend this one. Difficulty: 3/10 Enjoyment: 8/10
  12. I mean, OP basically said they're done going for trophies and will instead play what they want so I'm not sure what you're trying to do here. I've always felt this way about achievements and trophies, personally. It's just becoming easier with more Ratalaika games on PS and the ACA games over on X1. Doesn't deter me any from going for trophies but if people think score is important I can see how it puts them off. It kinda sounds like you weren't too crazy about going for trophies anyway so it's probably for the best.
  13. Depends on the game for me. The only game I've had add a NG+ trophy was Spider-Man and that was pretty bad considering that game isn't very fun a second time around. Gears of War 4 on Xbox added multiple achievements for extra campaign runs and that got old fast.
  14. They aren't important to me but I find the stats neat from time to time. It's similar to score in the sense that people can bolster the number with a variety of quick/bad games and I just can't be bothered to do that so I'm not all that invested.
  15. The only person being mindless here is you. I'm not "dickriding" them at all, I've had my fair share of criticism about the Switch as well. I just think you're going too far in the other direction in a thread that isn't even about Nintendo and I'm not entirely sure why. Kind of makes you come off like the mindless fanboy who dickrides Sony to the point you'll ree about other consoles just because the OP said something bad about them. At least he had a well-constructed thought behind it.
