  1. A good public service announcement, I guess, but the post you quoted is from 2014.
  2. Me. Anyway, I didn't even know Artifex Mundi did anything besides HOP games. I love HOP games, and even I'm sick of them now (though their price increase certainly didn't help). It's nice to see something that looks different for a changve.
  3. Late to the party, but I enjoyed this game. Localization is atrocious. But the combat is pretty fun; my only gripe is the way the lock-on will move between enemies if you use the right stick to control the cameral.
  4. For the first time, I'm sad I don't own a Switch.  I just read about Collection of Mana.

      @starcrunch061 I know it's not on the collection I was saying that they need to do Legend of Mana. I want the Collection to come to PS4 too because I haven't played any of the 3 games that are in it, the only one I've played out of the whole series is Legend of Mana.

      Honestly, I want "Collection" to come to PS4 because it would be nice to play Square games that are untouched by their new remake/remaster ways. Just clean up the graphics and sound!

       

      Legend of Mana is one of the most criminally underrated titles in the Square pantheon. The music alone in that game made it awesome. The stories were awesome. And to this day, I STILL have not figured out how to unlock a scenario, despite having the physical strategy guide.

      Legend of Mana is one of my all time favorite games and I've never truly beaten it. I always manage to lock myself out of something and I probably would as well using a guide lol. Love the background style of the game, and yeah the music is great. The same person did the soundtrack for Kingdom Hearts. I've stated it in a couple other places on the forum but if you listen to LoM's soundtrack and then KH1's soundtrack you would swear it was ripped off until you read it's the same person lol.

  5. Is it the light bar? I've always wondered why the Dualshock 4 battery was so lousy. Anyway, I'll do what I've done pretty much every generation since the PS1 - I'll wait a couple of years before picking it up. With full BC, though, I might pick it up day 1. There are TONS of old PS2 games I want to revisit, and now that Sony's silly "PS2 on PS4" has crashed and burned, I can dream again.
  6. Just to add to this mess: for a long time, the updates were so erratic that I didn't even think they were actually updating...until I got 2000 points in May. Since then, no updates whatsoever. It's remarkable how bad Sony is at this whole internet thing.
  7. Well, currently, is the BT trophy in Star Ocean: Ultimate Battler Obtain 100% of all battle trophies BUT!!!!! I have exactly ONE (1) more BT left. It is going to happen!
  8. Late to the party, but I kind of thought it was junk. The main game only takes around 9-10 hours. The rest of the plat time is grinding out stuff (the final grind of the plat is total nonsense, BTW). The piano music sounds good at first, but over time, it really grates on your nerves. The constant snow feels a bit lazy. The story relies on a lot of plot coupons to make any sense at all. I did like the battle system, though. All in all, it felt like a budget RPG that was grossly overpriced. Of course, like most, I waited for a sale. Anyway, for me, I just extended my PS+ membership for $39.99.
  9. Late to this party, but I'm about halfway through, and it's...OK? the control is a bit wonky, and the camera is atrocious (I hate, hate, HATE having an enemy just waiting to pummel me after a screen change). The graphics are delightful, and the music is excellent. The story is nice as well. But metroids live and die off of control, so I can't give it full praise.
  10. The trophies seem fine to me. They're a little peanut butter, but whatever. Like another poster, I'll be waiting for a sale. Apologies to those backers who are insulted by this. But if it's any consolation, I thank you for spending your money so that I can get the game for cheaper later.
  11. POWER GIG 2 days, 6 minutes, 14 seconds The current rarity is 0.93%, but it's BS. There are only 11 of us who have the plat out of 2480. The game's trophies are constantly hacked (on the PSN, the rarity is an astounding 9.6%).
  12. So, in other words, stupid, sucky, poorly thought out hard mode that requires watching a video. Great.
  13. Plat #340: Tokyo Xanadu EX+ The Legend of the X.R.C. Obtain all trophies. The story was pure sap, and the localization was pure shit. But I nonetheless enjoyed both of my playthroughs on this title. Normally, I would pass on a second playthrough, but Calamity+Infinity tempted me, and it was fun. Except for the final boss. Who was total, unadulterated BS. I recommend this title nonetheless. Good stuff. It's remarkable that there is a family tree leading from Faxanadu on the NES to this game. Plat #341: Revenant Dogma Aldora Meister Obtain all the trophies. I have been a Kemco apologist in the past, but honestly, it's hard to defend this crap. This is my fifth Kemco RPG, all developed by exe.create, and this is by far the worst one. It's well known that Kemco mails these things in, but the level of laziness here is legendary. The story is about 9 hours long. The rest are silly random dungeons, leading to the worst superboss fight I've ever seen. Like most, I cheesed him (is there any game where gold toss was the best attack? There is now!).
  14. Sorry for the late reply. I've been running around out of town quite a bit, and have been somewhat lazy in posting here. MAY: What Remains of Edith Finch JUNE: Tokyo Xanadu EX+ (55 trophies, so it's definitely hardcore) Current stats: Plats: 341 Games completed: 419 Completion %: 82.78%
  15. I'm certainly excited to see it, assuming I actually see it. I've never played the first Star Ocean. I played 2 before 3. I didn't care about the ending of 3. Of the 4 I've played, SO3 is easily the tops. It's not even close, honestly. The ending is a little silly, but who cares? At least it wasn't the pointless story we got in 5. You never can underestimate the laziness of the Japanese. It's entirely possible that the exploit will still be there.
