  1. Gonna watch season 3 of Stranger Things a bit later on.  Season 2 was pretty interesting for sure, enjoyed it.  But I have heard that some people didn't like season 3 as much as the previous 2 seasons?

    I mean, what intrigues me right now is at the end of S2, there is the Mind Flayer thing lurching over the Upside Down version of the school.  My guess is cause it wants Will back under its control.

    Just a thought, wont know until I start watching Season 3.

      I’m about half way through. It’s ok so far, I liked the tone of S1 a lot more though. Gets too silly at times for me, that was partly why I didn’t like S2 as much

    2. Stan Lee

      I enjoyed S3 a lot more than S2.

  2. Stranger Things continues to intrigue me, up to episode 6 of season 2 as is (have yet to watch episode 6, stopped at episode 5 for the night)... and there's a character I already despise in the show.  Max's sibling, whatever his name is.  The one who's been a douche to her.

    But yeah, glad I've finally been able to watch the show as is.

      Glad you're enjoying it! Yeah, Billy is really just a dick in this season, he fills the trope of the bully you'd typically see in an 80's movie, 'cept it's a TV series.

  3. I finally decided to do it, got a Netflix account.  30 days trial for sure... should be enough to watch all of Stranger Things :P

    But seriously, I may end up keeping it anyway, already am intrigued with Stranger Things after having watched the first episode.

    Have wanted to watch it for a while now.

      @Dragon-Archon Yeah, I saw that was available too, so who knows, I might watch a few of those episodes too.  Such a good show that is.

       

      But for now, Stranger Things and some Yu-Gi-Oh, not going to overwhelm myself with shows xD

      @DaisyVilla102 Does Umbrella Academy get better after the first episode? I almost fell asleep watching it.

       

      @DrakeHellsing Yep, it's awesome to see the show again after ~20 years.

    4. DaisyVilla102

      DaisyVilla102

      @Dragon-Archon I seem to recall thinking it started out slow but it does pick up soon. :)

  4. I would agree to a point. I mean, it would be nice to have a trophy for completing a game all the way when there is none. But I don't think developers should be forced to do such a thing. It's really up to the player if they want to go for everything or not. Though having said that, it can be disheartening when you get to 100% in the game and you get nothing, no trophy, no ingame reward, nothing at all for all your hard earned work.
  5. #117: Adventure Time: PotE.  I've said what I needed to say about this game in my other statuses about the game, but all in all, I still found the game to be a nice little adventure around Ooo.  Hopefully another game gets made, but you know, isn't a pirate adventure, as in, dry land instead.

    I mean, the ending of the game seemed to imply a sequel.  But it could also easily be foretelling of the series own finale, which I don't think had aired when the game was released? Not sure on that, but the way Gumbald spoke about Princess Bubblegum makes it seem like he was talking about the show's own finale anyway.

    But I still did like the simple story of this one, nothing all that fancy, and seeing characters again was nice.

      Thanks :D

       

      I have to say too, in the game, I found it amusing that Marcy, whom can essentially fly everywhere, can only float in this game, and needs to jump over things like everyone else had to.  Heck, she even has a jumping animation for no real reason at all xD

  6. [Adventure Time: PofE] Yeah, I'm sure I'm close to the end of the game now.  Got the last two side quests showing up for me, I am level 8 as is.  So really, not a whole lot left to do on the game by the looks of it.  Though if need be, I may have to grind the characters to level 10.  Well, BMO not so much, he seems to not need as much experience as the other three, so he's already a bit ahead in terms of XP.

    But so far, I have been enjoying the game, only things I'm not a huge fan of are the interrogation parts (especially the one against Cinnamon Bun).  And the stealth parts with Marcy.

      DrakeHellsing

      Yeah, but at least there's so few of them.  But that Cinnamon Bun one was the worst of them, do the wrong thing and you have to start all over x.x

       

      But now, I have to figure out the best place to grind now.  Jake, Finn and Marcy are all still level 8, BMO is level 9 and I've just beaten Uncle Gumbald in battle... who was actually pretty simple.

    3. Elvick_

      Elvick_

      Yeah, I had to do teh Cinnamon Bun one twice too. It's used so little that you forget it's even a mechanic by the time you get it again. Further proving how pointless it is. 

      That spooky island/forest is where I grinded it out. Forget what it's called (obviously) it's where you had to steal with Marcy. Not sure if it's the best spot, but that's where I did it.

      stealth* with Marchy lol

    4. DrakeHellsing

      DrakeHellsing

      Hey technically, you did have to steal something stealthfully, so "steal" was still correct :P

       

      But yeah, I might just go there, see how that works.  If not, the Fire Kingdom and the two islands could also be a good place too.

  7. [Adventure Time: PotE] Okay, I managed to get into the Fire Kingdom now.  That enemy was level 7, so I did get my Finn, Jake and Marcy to level 6 (with BMO leveling up on his own, using him for charging the special meter).

    So now I can advance the game some more.  I have a feeling I'm not too far off from completing it? I mean in the trophy list there's a Fire Giant to fight, which I assume is at the end of the Fire Kingdom, then Uncle Gumbald whom I assume will be the final boss fight... wherever that may take place.

    But oh boy, that interrogation sequence with Cinnamon Bun, that was frustrating, 3 times.  And the hints Finn and Jake were giving each other didn't help.  Jake getting annoyed, wanting to go Bad Cop, so I try that... and it's wrong.  And the dialogue could not be skipped, so listening to it 3 times over was annoying.

      Are you enjoying the game? I really love the show and thought this looked like a fun little RPG style game.

    2. Anxiety

      Anxiety

      It's a good game, just a bit slow in some places.

    3. DrakeHellsing

      DrakeHellsing

      Yeah, I'm still enjoying the game.  I do like the fight side of things, turn based is fine.  I mean the boss fight against Fern wasn't all that bad, especially realizing the best way to beat him down.

       

      Only issues I've had so far are the interrogation sequences, which aren't the greatest, and then the odd audio glitch.  As in, sentences get cut off a second before the end.  And while not a glitch, I find it interesting that the subtitles are different in some places than what is said.  Like Finn said one thing, the subtitles said almost the same, except for a different number (like the next number up).

       

      But all in all, it's still a fun little game.  Should be able to finish it today hopefully.

  8. Hey, maybe you can help answer this for me, the Adventure Time game, the pirate one.  How often does it autosave? It told me to watch for the BMO picture to show it's autosaving and unless I'm blind, I've not seen the BMO picture.

    1. Elvick_

      Elvick_

      I honestly don't remember. But I don't remember really having an issue with the saving.

  9. [Adventure Time: PotE] Hmm, I think I should go and do a bit of grinding somewhere.  I just arrived in the Fire Kingdom and already there's two fire guards there and one is skull level, you know, a much higher level than me.

    Does the game ask you to do a bit of grinding elsewhere? I mean Finn, Jake ad Marcy are at level 5 and getting them to level 6 is taking longer than need be, allowing for BMO to play catchup easily.

  10. Just a simple question in regards to doing this. How does one pull this off? I mean, I've done it now and then without really trying, but to be sure, I am assuming it's dealing more damage to an enemy than they have health? Like, a good amount more? For those that have played the game, where would be the best place in order to pull this off? As in, a group of 4 enemies to encounter, the level they are and what level I should be? Otherwise, this trophy might annoy me a little bit x.x Edit: Okay, so I managed to get it. I think I just got lucky when I did though. I believe it was the group of enemies on the Badlands area. Either it was them, or a group in the Evil Forest.
  11. Been playing that Adventure Time game, the pirate one.  Been doing well with it.  The gameplay is fine from what I've been playing, but the enemies can be a right pain for sure.  Hard to say how far into the game I am, all I know I'm heading back to the Candy Kingdom to fight the Mama Varmit... so maybe half way through the game? I mean Finn, Jake and Marcy are all at level 5 as is, BMO, who I just got is only level 2.  So I assume the level 10 trophies for each character is their max level, as I can't see levels getting higher than level 10.

  12. [Prototype] Been running around finding collectibles for now.  Not looking for them all, just as many as I can find for the time being.  But man, that one collectible on top of the Empire State Building... it's out of my reach right now.  Tried running up to it, jumping to it and even simply climbing to it... not working out for me yet.  Maybe when my jump is at max I can grab it.

      Yeah I read it, but hey, wanted to play the game my way you know.  So when I get back to Prototype, going to just keep playing how I want to and worry about other stuff another time.

    3. TheYuriG

      TheYuriG

      could have saved an extra playthrough using the exploit, but ok

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      @TheYuriG I believe you came up with the glitch if I remember correctly or something like that but I surprisingly didn't use it and just played the game legit on ng+ and it was pretty doable. 

       

      But yea up to op I guess on how to tackle the collectibles/trophies. They were just a huge pain for me. More than the infamous orbs just because at least with the infamous orbs they're mainly well-spaced out without the overcrowding you see in the downtown area of Prototype where each building has a crap ton of orbs facing different sides of the building but on a map they just look like orb clusters.. 

  13. Yeah, I went and bought that Prototype bundle and already started playing through the first game.  Forgot how the game actually was, but I should do fine with it.  Not sure if I'll be able to platinum it though, as those platinum medal requirements are probably going to do me in.

    I still remember the requirement for that race around Central Park and not being able to do it in the end x.x

     

    But yeah, will play a fair bit of this tomorrow too, until my Adventure Time game arrives that is, then I'll jump over to that and play through that game.

  14. Huh, I was unaware that the Prototype games and in turn, the bundle itself, was on sale at the moment.  May have to pick that up as well, the bundle that is.  I have not played those games in forever.
    I especially remember the first one with the whole, Web of Intrigue ordeal.

    I don't remember the second game as much, but I do recall getting the platinum on it on the PS3 way back when.  The first one, I think the gold/platinum challenges were getting a bit much for me in the end (I remember that damn race around Central Park was one I could not get in the end).

    1. ArmoredSnowman

      ArmoredSnowman

      Huh, nice, thanks for the info. Definitely getting it then. Never played the second game, and wouldn't mind getting back to the first after all these years. 

    2. DrakeHellsing

      DrakeHellsing

      Yeah, I was just thinking of the games themselves... was trying to recall the name of them.  Got the name in my head and checked the webstore: https://store.playstation.com/en-nz/product/EP0002-CUSA01766_00-PROTOTYPEBUNDLE1

       

      Might do so later on this weekend then :)

  15. Decided to go and buy that Adventure Time game, the pirate one.  Not digital though, a physical copy of it.  It was on sale for $20, which to me, is a much better price that what it would usually be (between $40-$54).  So I should be getting that tomorrow to mess around with.

    Heck, even seeing the gameplay trailer makes a little more sense to me now with some of the characters you see in (specifically Fern) after having finally caught up and finished watching the show itself (I had really only seen the first 4 seasons).

     

    Wouldn't mind if we did get another Adventure Game sometime, would be nice for sure.

      @DaisyVilla102 I had booted up my PS3 to check the store on there and could only find the Investigations one on there.  And checking my downloaded list, the other two weren't in there, so I have to assume I had them physically ages ago.  But ah well, no big deal.

       

      @Elvick_ As long as the game's fun, that's all I ask for really.  I mean a game that's based upon a flooding in Ooo.  I can only assume that the Ice King has something to do with it.  I mean from the trailer, he wasn't wearing his crown, and in the show, something similar had happened when he was away from his crown, the ice did seem to start melting in his kingdom.  At least in one episode that had happened, that mountain with the face in it seemed to be crying (really, melting a little).  So before I even get my hands on it, I'm blaming the Ice King for the flooding in Ooo xD

    3. DaisyVilla102

      DaisyVilla102

      @DrakeHellsing Ah! Sorry, I was just looking in the web store.

    4. DrakeHellsing

      DrakeHellsing

      Yeah, the webstore for me showed by the Pirates game and the Investigations game only (and for the latter, only the PS3 version, not the PS4 version).

       

      Only other AT stuff that showed up was the Minecraft stuff and the LBP stuff.

       

      A shame they seemed to be delisted, as I said, would not mind playing them again and trying to actually do better in them.
