  1. Hey guys, I'll keep it short and sweet. I'm lvl 50, know the tricks, know the warlord and ammo replenish (suicide) glitches, but happy to learn from more experienced players. Looking for someone to join me on crushing to get 3 * and help me improve. I still need lvl 5 weapons, but working towards it on my own in parallel to co-op. Want to join? I play GMT 7 pm to about 10 pm most nights. Online now and happy to listen to others' advice and, hey, I'm a nice person. Add me if interested Chell_Clare
  2. Hey guys, I'm currently playing UC4 Survival and would like to get 3 stars on Crushing to get 100% in the game avec DLC. I'm level 21, but just enjoying co-op and getting used to each map. I was wondering if anyone else would like to join me and get some practice while working towards the trophy for 3 stars on each map on Crushing difficulty. At the moment, I need to get 3 stars on Hard mode before Crushing will unlock, but happy to just have a good companion to join me while we work up to it. Let me know if you're interested in some co-op sessions Chell_Clare
  3. Hi, I was hoping someone may be able to help with an issue I've encountered. I downloaded The Division and have played much of the game, so this is an issue that's arisen well into my game. I hadn't played the game for about 3 weeks and went back to it last night; however, it gets stuck on the loading screen where is says "connecting Chell_Clare". It simply ticks away trying to connect for hours. I tried re-downloading but the same issue occurs. Has anyone else experienced/managed to solve this? I would ask Ubi Support but they're notoriously poor at customer support and rarely have a solution. Thanks!
  4. I like the Axe of the Conqueror but it isnt so great against a fast target...by the time the hit lands, it's often too late and it hits the ground. I quite like the Swords of the Wanderer because I have a think for dual swords Blade of the Mystic is the one I depend on when I need the hits...always works well against powerful enemies so I'd have to say that one
  5. All of my hits were warp strikes. When you warp strike and hold it you seem to be fixed to your target. You're also not a solid entity when you warp which means you shouldn't be affected by physical hits, which is what i found. Even if Adamantoise moves you continue to warp back in to the point on which you locked. Repeated warps drain your MP so I got to lvl 59, equipped Iron Duke and constantly moved between two warp points...the hanging one on the billboard nr its right paw (which restores your MP) and the one opposite on the rock by its left paw. For example...hanging from the billboard warp point, do a warp strike to hit the nearest paw, hold it to get repeated strikes (hold triangle + R1 I think) until your MP is running low then release R1 (still holding triangle) and you'll immediately fly over to the warp point by its other paw. Do the same in the other direction. You don't get knocked out of the arena. Takes about 45 minutes assuming approx lvl 59 and a strong sword.
  6. Thanks for the useful tips. I replayed the level to build up a stock of grenades and M4 ammo then took cover at the back of the carriage like you said. I was also countering too quickly - I didn't realise that if you wait a few seconds, a triangle trigger shows up...even on Crushing. Took a fair few tries, but he's finally beaten! Hurrah!
  7. Thanks - so I need more grenades for a start! Did he run at you after you'd done a certain amount of damage? It seems to be the timing of my counter hits in that first melee confrontation that lets me down.
  8. Hi guys, I'm struggling with the mini boss in the last carriage of the train on Chapter 14. Any tips on timings for countering/best weapons to use etc? Countering isn't normally a big issue for me, but this fight seems to be quite unforgiving on Crushing... Thanks, Chell
  9. It was Uncharted: TNDC. It's soon to be superseded by Just Cause 3
  10. Agreed. Another tip for avoiding overheating is to keep it dust-free. You can use the nozzle end of a hoover to suck dust off the various points at which it could make its way inside the console. Wouldn't recommend wiping it away because you can end up forcing it into the console while you're doing it. Ideally, keep the console off the floor as it picks up carpet fibre. I've thought about this a lot .
  11. Know your gaming style and personality, that's my advice More specifically: 1. If you're easily frustrated, pick games with trophies that are challenging but achievable without the fun being lost. 2. Go for games that align with your gaming style - for example, I love side quests and collectibles. I enjoy searching for them so I'm drawn to games like Assassin's Creed where many of the trophies are associated with side missions and treasure chests. 3. Have a look at trophy lists before starting a game and figure out whether you're going to find it rewarding and fun, or if you're going to want to try and drown yourself in an inch of water by the end of it. That being said, don't be put off trying games just because their trophies seem unattainable. I've learnt to accept that there are some games that will remain at <100% for me - there's no obligation to finish every game. 4. Check the trophy constraints before starting your playthrough There are some trophies that can only be achieved at certain points in the game/based on certain dialogue choices earlier in the game. Witcher 3 is a good example of this - many choices close off certain trophy missions later in the game. There's nothing worse than getting to the end and realising the platinum didn't pop because you missed a mission. 5. Replay value - be careful of games that require a second play through on a superior difficulty. If you're the sort of gamer who hates playing games over and over, you may find yourself getting bored with games where a second run is required. The main thing is to trophy hunt because you want to. I've always loved collecting and completing and doing the repetitive tasks associated with trophies, but I did have to step back and accept that I don't have the time or patience for all of the games on my list.
  12. Connor from Assassin's Creed 3 - uninspiring, arrogant and never appreciated Achilles, who took care of him and trained him. I used to let him die on purpose because he was so irritating. What a ****.
  13. My Dad was a computer programmer - he and my Mum got divorced when I was just one year old, so my sister and I used to spend holidays at my Dad's and always used to have gaming nights where we'd get loads of snacks and sit in this teeny tiny room playing really old games that you may not remember unless you're over 30 like me (!) - Alley Cat, Prince of Persia (the original), old school Doom, the first Tombraider. We used to play on a massive, clunky PC that whirred away in the background. Eventually, my Dad got a PS2. I used to spend weekends there when I was at Reading University and we spent hours on the PS2. Then I moved to Oxford to do my Masters and ended up working at a company where my closest friend convinced me to get a PS3...and then a PS4. I'm also quite reclusive and like to be on my own a lot....so combined with my upbringing I just grew to carry on loving it.
  14. I realise I should be flying a flag for the female gender, but I completely agree about the sweet perfume. That being said, you are probably safe among the female gaming community. I'm not sure I've ever met a girl gamer who sprays herself in Escada's finest summer scent and then sits down to eat someone's face on Mortal Kombat To your list, I would also include mint in all its forms, the sound of babies giggling (it's entirely creepy and suspicious), people who don't blink enough, The English Patient (most boring moving ever), people who drive 40 mph on a 60 mph road, people who write 'lose' as 'loose', pop-ups on websites and wanky food (i.e., posh food that is overpriced and disappointingly small when it arrives).
  15. Oo good thread. For me, the best games of 2015 are: 1. Witcher 3 (for the stunning and expansive environment) 2. AC Syndicate (for the fluid close combat and fun side challenges/trophies) 3. Mortal Kombat X (a beautifully polished game with a variety on offline and online challenges - it constantly evolves, with new characters, living towers, faction wars.) 4. Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection (for value for money - I'd also never played the first and third games and loved them) 5. Possibly Just Cause 3. I'll let you know when I've played it Incidentally, I'd like to throw in the other extreme and say that I found The Order the most disappointing of the year. So, so many cutscenes...it was a little bit like watching a movie rather than playing a game. Great for getting a quick platinum, but there is no sense of achievement when you get it because the gameplay time is so minimal
