  1. Late to the party, but I find this trophy list repulsive for a different reason. There is no reason to make a player play through the game on every difficulty. If you can beat Proud mode, that should be enough.
  2. Man - this KH:MoM plat is very, VERY tedious. I haven’t even played very well, and while I have about 20 more full chains on Proud for the “hardest” trophy, I’m not even half way to getting 100,000 kills.

      You have 200+ Wave of Darkness runs to get those kills ahead of you. Enjoy!

  3. Well, refreshing WiFi didn’t work. I turned on 2fa, but now when I try to log in to the Vita, I get a new error message saying something about a “device setup password”. It says to check my phone for a message, but I got nothing like that.
  4. So, I’m trying to buy a game, and it prompts me for a password. But when I enter it, it just prompts me again to enter the password. It’s the right password. Not only did I check it elsewhere, but I don’t get the “incorrect password” notification when I enter the correct one (I do get this if I enter an incorrect passwords). It accepts the password, but then prompts me to enter again. Any idea what the problem is?
  5. Never played that one, but I’ve heard nothing but raves for it. Anyway, I’ve played a ton of obscure gems. A nice one was Pixel Heroes.
  6. I have a dumb question. I redeemed my code for stage 2, but I don’t know what the reward actually was. I didn’t get sent to a page for downloads or anything like that.
  7. Plat #436: Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Dragon Ball Master Obtain all trophies. Sometimes, a game is better than the sum of its parts, such as this one. DBZ:K has pleasing enough graphics, but they're hardly great. Character models are rather plain jane, and environments are sparsely detailed. The story follows the comic/show pretty well, but moves quickly with little detail. The Cell saga has very little motivation whatsoever. Combat is OK, but battles are so easy that it's almost pointless. Every single battle in the game is beaten by simply backing away when the opponent glows, and attacking when he doesn't. With only two exceptions, I S-ranked every battle in the game. I am no fighting maestro or anything. A funny note: there are passive skills in the game that must be equipped to use. I only learned about these after beating the main game. It still didn't stop my reign of terror on my foes. The minigames are completely forgettable, with rewards that are so poor as to boggle the mind. The fishing game might be the single easiest fishing game I've seen in a game. The racing game is similar, as is the baseball game. Outside of a couple of side quests, none of them are useful. There are TONS of materials in this game. I have no idea what 95% of them do. Probably the most fun thing to do is gather the "soul emblems" and try to put them together in maximal fashion...but this is pointless, too. And yet...I still really enjoyed this game. Despite the fact that it was every bit as mindless as beating on peons in a Musou game, I still enjoyed it. I enjoyed it enough that I went far beyond the plat, finishing all subquests, unlocking all Dragon Ball requests (it helps that, even doing this, the game was over in about 45 hours). I loved looking for clips from the original Dragon Ball series (which is actually my preferred version). I get why people shit on anime games. I do. They're too often low-budget shlock meant to grab a quick buck from non-discerning Japanophiles. But despite many of the same complaints, I found myself really enjoying this game (though it helps that I didn't actually pay for it, and instead checked it out from a library). I would guess that Dragon Ball fans have already played this, but if you haven't, it's worth your time, and your money.
  8. For absolute, bottom-of-the-barrel bad, it’s gotta be The Unknown City: HorrorBegins Now. I can’t believe I got the 100% in this one. For greatest disappointment, it might be Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. It actually annoys me when people say this uninspired pile of goo is the best “metroidvania” ever.
  9. Possibly a slight spoiler, though I don’t so.

     

    So, I’m playing and enjoying RE: Village, but I never played the previous title. Do they explain the existence of the human tissue super glue that is so common, it’s literally just sitting on random tables?

      If I'm following you... yes, it does get explained. xD

  10. Plat #436 - Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

     

    I’llgive a more thorough summary/review in the Most Recent Plat thread later, but this game is much greater than the sum of its parts. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it.

  11. BOOYAH!

     

    My library put their game collection out (finally), and I managed to snag RE: Village!

      @AJ_Radio Yeah. It’s this weird invention in Iowa where you can enter a building and borrow books and other media.
       

      I don’t think it’s caught on anywhere else, though. 😉

      I don't think I've used a library in over a decade. I thought you meant something else. The most I do to get games in person is either stop at my local GameStop or Best Buy.

       

      If I want to rent games I can just resubscribe to GameFly.

      Nope. I love my library, and over the course of the pandemic, they’ve bought some more games. The ones of interest to me are Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. 

  12. I have not, though I’ll venture it’s as easy as previous games. By the way, did you beat Enah?
  13. I am almost positive that a few years ago, the dev for FFT announced (or sought funding) for a spiritual successor to Tactics. But for the life of me, I don’t remember what the name of the game was, or (obviously) its fate.

     

    Does anyone know about this? Was it just a fever dream?

      @nyarLOLhotep: Yep, that’s it. Unsung Story. I need to research this, but thanks for the response!

      So, I researched this. What a crazy story. But as recently as 2020, a demo was released, so hope springs eternal.

      Yeah, it's totally nuts. I've given up hope awhile back.
