  1. All Out Life by Slipknot
  2. Like a Star Traveling in the Night Sky Cleared the Dawn arc. The story has been pretty good so far. I think I'm on the final one now, so I'm interested how the true ending is going to be. Wait, there's a God Eater 3?! When did that happen? Ugh... I really need to keep-up with gaming news more often. 😑 Hope it's good, I'll be looking forward to playing that one later.
  3. Platinum #115 - Atelier Lydie & Suelle! ^_^ 

    I got a nice long list of complaints with this one. 😅

  4. The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings Congratulations! You have collected all trophies. Difficulty: 3/10 Enjoyment: 6/10 Playtime: 69:21:37 Screenshot: (as usual, just a split second from being a perfect shot...) I'm disappointed to say this, but I'm glad the Mysterious trilogy is finally over. Whether it's the story, combat, or the synthesis system, it's all a notch below the other Atelier games. 😑 I got a lot to complain talk about here, so I'm just going to make a pro/con list. Pros: Story was slightly better than Firis. While you can't add traits to your weapons the normal way (straight from you materials), the add-ons you use for this purpose can be removed & swapped between different weapons. Cons: Characters no longer have an ultimate attack, just some fairly useless combination skills that take forever to charge up (unless you're using multiple things to boost the rate). Same horrible synthesis system (as expected). Not really any good places to farm end-game traits (the process is slow enough to where I didn't even mess with it). An $80 season pass, seriously? It seems like they left out all that stuff just so they could charge extra for it. Characters that should already be available is one thing, but higher tier adventure items & cap increases? Screw that (& no, I didn't buy any of it). The starting size of your basket is horrible, even with the backpack item it's still too small... but you can get a bigger one via DLC. I didn't find much use for the whole battle mix thing, the cap for your anima is so low (something else that can be increased via DLC), a lot of your items will use up half your stash. Previous 2 games were dubbed, but this one wasn't. Subbed games aren't a deal-breaker for me, but they should've at least finished the trilogy before changing to subs only. I can probably think of more, but I'll stop there... Can you tell I didn't really care for it? 😅 Honestly I'm a bit worried now about how the 4th Arland game is going to be (especially if they try pulling that DLC crap again), after Escha & Logy this series has just been going downhill. Is it Gust that's screwing up, or is it because Koei Tecmo now owns them instead of Nippon Ichi? This is starting to remind me of when Square merged with Enix... 😢
  5. Another Great Business Day Reached Shop Ending. I had a pile of 500K Coll when I realized I needed to be under 10K to trigger an event for this ending... so after registering my most expensive items & re-buying them, I managed to get the event. Then I had to get upto 50K for the next requirement, so I figured I could sell all the things I just bought & easily reach that amount... it barely gave me half of that (yeah, 500K worth of goods only sold for 25K). 😅 So I decided to give the new "Very Hard" difficulty a try to see how fast I could earn the remaining cash I needed... I got over 50K in one battle. I don't think I'll be having anymore money problems if I stick with that difficulty.
  6. I just hope the synthesis system is going to be better than what they had in the "Mysterious" series. Imo, that was the worst system in the entire Atelier series, it really kept me from fully enjoying them (basically the opposite of the "Dusk" series). 😥 Just going by the first image in that link, it already looks better.
  7. I'm checking out my 2018 PSN stats I got from Sony, it could still be a little more accurate, but it's better than last time. According to the stats, my 3 top games were Mugen Souls at 310 hours (no surprise there 😅), Cross Edge at 124 hours, & Bloons TD5 at 123 hours... I have Mugen Souls at 335 hours though, so that's a bit off, but I'm not sure about the other two since they don't have a playtime counter (I'd be surprised if I spent more than 100 hours on Bloons though). :hmm: 

     

    Other fun stats include nearly 2K hours of total playtime in 2018, 7 hours for longest streak, & getting the title "Masterful Strategist". 😅 I don't know how the titles are chosen, maybe because most of the games I played were RPGs?

      & for anyone who hasn't checked theirs yet, there's 3 free PS4 themes in the email too. ^_^

      They said stats might be a bit inaccurate.

  8. [Atelier Lydie & Suelle]  It's funny how big a difference there is in EXP/Col gain between the easy & hard difficulty. In the beginning I was playing only on easy till I could make some decent equipment (struggling with money & barely getting any EXP)... Now after playing on hard for only 1 chapter, I have 60K COL & my party is Lv40+. xD

      I see you platted Atelier Rorona.  Any tips for raising friend levels before the items they request aren't possible to get?

      @IntroPhenom Sorry, but it's been way too long since I played Rorona to recall any details of it (that was on my old account). I know I had to follow a walkthrough & had multiple saves, but that's about it. 😅

  9. [Atelier Lydie & Suelle] Wait, this game isn't dubbed? The hell, most (if not all) the other localized ones have been. <_< Well this isn't starting off well... 😑

      My guess is they aren't making enough on these games to justify the cost of dubbing.

      I always thought the series was fairly popular, considering they keep making new titles. I think they're up to around 20+ games now? 😅

       

      Although it's true the newer ones can't even compare the the older titles (back when Gust was still part of NISA). 😑

      This is my precise issue with BlazBlue Central Fiction. They go and dub Cross Tag Battle but can't be bothered to dub the final game in BlazBlue's canon 😒

  10. Platinum #114 - Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon! ^_^ 

    Now what to play next... maybe Atelier Lydie & Suelle? :hmm:

      Clash 1-3 is harder then Spryo 1-3 due to Time Trial... mostly.

  11. Party like it's 2024 Win all trophies in Spyro 3 Difficulty: 2.5/10 Enjoyment: 8.5/10 Playtime: 9:40:13 (22 hours, 58 minutes, 47 seconds) Screenshot: I was hoping it'd take the shot when I flamed his ass... oh well. This was probably the easiest one yet (but also the longest), & I was going through getting 100% on each stage because I assumed I'd need it for the plat. But that ends the Spyro trilogy! I had more fun than I expected playing these games again, & I'm glad I have it now too since I no longer have my PS1 copies. I have the Crash trilogy too, but I have a feeling those'll be a lot harder than the Spyro games. 😅 In total, I probably only spent around 25 hours on all 3 of the games, I'm kinda surprised they gave us 3 platinums for that. When I first heard about the remake, I expected it to be all on one list (although I'm not complaining).

      Thanks! ^_^ I just finished the 3rd one too. :P 

  13. Ripto's Remorse Collect all trophies in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage Difficulty: 3.5/10 Enjoyment: 8/10 Playtime: 8:04:19 (2 weeks, 6 days, 22 hours) Screenshot: Well that wasn't a very big gap between platinums, although I did already have Spyro 2 2/3 done when I switched to Dragon Quest XI a couple weeks ago. Pretty much the same as the first, but I do like the fact you can learn new moves in this one (even if that means you can't 100% every level the first time you visit it). It seems like a few of the mini games you play in this one are a little more difficult, but not by much though... I got a little more playtime out of this one too (a little over an hour). I guess I'll go ahead & start the 3rd one & finish off the trilogy next!
  14. Wow, I need to start checking the PSN store for new free themes more often, I found some pretty good ones I didn't even know existed. xD Resonance of Fate, FFXII Eruyt Village, & Labyrinth of Refrain are probably my favorites so far. :hmm: 

  15. @WerneyPark Here you go.
