  1. [Genshin Impact] By tomorrow, Yae Miko will finally be released! :yay:

    I've been saving a stack of Primos for her for quite a while now, it's going to be nice to finally be able to spend them.Β πŸ˜† I have enough for a guarantee, plus I already have all her mats farmed as well. :awesome:

    1. Dead Weight

      Dead Weight

      Hopefully you roll her early.

      Β 

      I rolled a lot on Ganyu/Zhongli banners so i only have 900 primos and no guarantee lmao

      I'm on a 50-50, so I'll be happy if I can win that. Hell, I've won my last 4 or 5 50-50 pulls, I feel like I'm going to break a record at this point. πŸ˜‚

      Β 

      I managed to get my Ganyu to C1, I also recently completely changed her build (Hamayumi + 4 piece Troupe). I'm dealing almost twice as much damage as I used to now (over 40K per charge shot). πŸ˜†

  2. Got a question for anyone who orders from Play Asia (specifically Switch games). If a game says "english" in the title but shows a JP flag in the corner (like these), does that just mean the game is fully english but I won't be able to download DLC for it since I have a US account? Wasn't sure how different regions work for the Switch. :hmm:

    1. Infected Elite

      Infected Elite

      scroll down to whatever game and check language. As long as it says english it should be fine. JPN may be startup menu as japanese and you'll adjust in a menu like Fatal Frame Black Maiden did.Β 

      Sometimes they have an error and it says language is chinese but its english such as F.I.S.T.Β 

      Β 

      dlc is region locked though iirc. As most of those say work worldwide but online features may be region locked.

  5. I tried starting on VH as well, think I made it to around chapter 2 or 3 till I quickly learned that's near-impossible. πŸ˜… Definitely do 2 playthroughs, & at the end of your first run just farm as much PP/BP as possible (don't use it!), & get your weapons to at least Lv40, that makes VH a cakewalk. As for the interviews... yeah, those suck. πŸ˜‚ Thankfully I don't think you need to ace them all for the true end, the main requirement for that is just getting a character to a 4 star affection rating before the cut-off point, acing an interview just makes that easier. I save-scummed till I knew I had the correct choices on them all & that gave me a 5 star rating with all 5 girls by the end, so there's some room for error. Also you can save-scum the game's missions till the girl you want gets a high ranking mission, that'll increase her affection more than the others.
  6. Platinum #191 - Dark Rose Valkyrie! :yay:

    Kinda glad I'm finally done with that... Is it the worst CH game I've played? No... but it's down there. πŸ˜… This'll probably be my last plat for a while, I'm going to be getting a Switch soon & will be starting some games for that after Christmas, so I'll probably just mess around on Genshin till then. :hmm:

      @Masamune Holy... I had the impression that it was kinda average, but if it ranks up so high for you then it's definitely worth checking out. :hmm:

      Β 

      Great picks there to start out with your Switch. ;) Man, those Paper Mario games were the bomb back then. At least the very first ones were super great. I have heard the series kinda went down afterward, not sure if The Origami King is any good or a return to form for the series. Hopefully it is because The Thousand-Year Door is high up there among my all-time favorite RPGs. :D

    4. Masamune

      Masamune

      Thanks! ^_^

      Β 

      @Honor_Hand Cross Edge is also one of my favorites though, so I have unique tastes. :P

      Β 

      Thousand-Year Door was the first one I played, absolutely loved it. It's definitely one of my favorite Nintendo games. xD The original is really good too, I found a N64 at a yard sale once with some games with it, the second I seen Paper Mario in there, I bought the whole box for like $20, I think? Still have it to this day. xD

  7. All Complete! Obtained all trophies. Difficulty: 4/10 (2 playthroughs with proper prep, 1 playthrough would probably be a 9/10) Enjoyment: 6.5/10 (most of that is for the story) Playtime: 97:33:18 (I probably wasted at least 10 hours trying to do the post-game stuff) Screenshot: Sadly this was one of the lesser CH games, the list of cons it has far outweighs the pros... The best thing it has to offer is easily the story, I enjoyed that & would rate it above average. Thankfully the trophies are all relatively easy & a lot you will get naturally, only one really worth mentioning is for getting 10K kills. After 2 playthroughs, I was only around 5K? So that'll require some grinding (you can get around 1K an hour depending on where you farm). Gameplay though... yeah, that leaves a lot to be desired. πŸ˜“ The combat system can be very tedious, especially late-game (where you get constantly bombarded with status ailments), to the point where having a defense against the more troublesome ailments like instant death & paralysis are mandatory (either that or never let the enemy get a turn, which is near impossible since a lot of later enemies have twice the speed as you unless you've been focusing on that stat the whole game). The game doesn't really have any post game content besides some story-less extra dungeons either, which aren't even worth doing thanks to the extremely steep difficulty spikes (I had my special stat capped out on Coo & still had no chance of beating the Lv600 rabbit boss). πŸ€• Since all your stats you gain while leveling up are decided by you, you can end up building a character completely wrong & ruining them too. This of course isn't the first CH game to use the PP system, but I think it is the first to let you decide where ALL your stats go? A lot of the attacks in the game rely on dual stats too, so you can't just focus on 1 stat if you want to increase your attack. The AoE attacks are way too small as well (including AoE items, those can by useless depending on your formation), you'll be lucky if you can hit more than 2 enemies with them half the time, the difference between the low & high grade rages aren't that big either. Also if a party member happened to die right as your turn comes up (they're still standing but with 0 HP), you can't revive them, you actually have to wait till your next member's turn comes up to do so (this happened 6 or 7 times to me). πŸ˜– I can think of 4 or 5 more things to mention, but I'll stop here. In the end, I can really only recommend this to people who really enjoy the other CH games... I guess you could say this is a cross between Agarest & Fairy Fencer? Just... not as good as either of them. πŸ˜…
  8. And here I thought Sony Rewards became irreverent when they discontinued the trophy passes, they might as well kill off the program at this point. :facepalm:

    0Fgm7To.jpg

    1. DaivRules

      DaivRules

      Sony Rewards were a thing for years before trophy hunters took notice to get points for earning trophies. They have always been a terrible value though.Β 

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      Yeah, imo SR wasn't really useful till the trophy passes thing (as glitchy as it was). But once it was gone again, at least you could still earn a small amount of points by just forgetting about it & buying things on PSN as usual. πŸ˜’

      Β 

      At least I had enough points for a final $5 PSN code though. I doubt I'll ever visit the site again after this. πŸ˜…

    3. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      Yep, received this 2 nights ago and thought, "Well... It's entirely useless now." Haven't visited the site in months here. πŸ˜…

  9. Looks like Genshin won some kinda Playstation awards, they're even sending us some extra primos as thanks over the next few days (to everyone above AR7, so basically everybody). :yay:https://genshin.mihoyo.com/en/news/detail/17445

    Β 

    800 primos isn't a lot (5 pulls), but it's more than we usually get from things. πŸ˜…

    1. NERVergoproxy

      NERVergoproxy

      Anything to keep me pulling.

  10. Final Mission Accomplished! Cleared the eighth Dangerous Creature extermination. Skill Master Raised any stats to 999. Uniform Master Strengthened any uniform to its maximum. I wasn't expecting to get that far into post-game, I haven't increased my stats since around Lv100 (saving PP for NG+), but I was fighting enemies over Lv300. πŸ˜… All that's left now is to clear NG+ & kill 10K Chimeras (currently only at 4K, so that'll require grinding even after NG+). I probably have plenty of PP saved up for my VH run by now, I should be able to start it with around 7-8K (enough to max out a stat if I wanted, as you can see from the above trophy).
  11. [Dark Rose Valkyrie] I finished my first run, managed to beat it withing lowering the difficulty past hard (also got Coo's true end). :yay: Now I have a lot of prep I need to do for my "very hard" run. I just made a discovery I don't think I've seen mentioned anywhere either (there's really not a lot of info around about this game)... Obviously a portion of your PP gets transferred to NG+ (40% for a hard run?), but what I haven't seen mentioned is that any unused BP gets converted & added to the pool as well. Meaning if I do some level grinding but don't spend any of my points afterwords, I can transfer a portion of all that as well (making my next run that much easier). :D

    Β 

    I've already been kinda lazy upgrading my lesser used characters, so that's an extra 800 or so points right there. I'm pretty sure the PP system in Cross Edge worked the same way, so I'm glad I bothered checking it before I spent it all. πŸ˜… Based on my hard run, very hard is probably going to suck either way, so I have to stockpile as much as possible before jumping into that... -_-

      @Yuna4353 The story is pretty good, I enjoyed that. Gameplay though can be a little tedious at times compared to the other CH games out there...

      Β 

      There's basically 3 attack stats in the game (melee, range, & special), & a lot of the skills are a hybrid mixture of 2, so it can be a little confusing at times deciding on what stat you wanna focus on. Also if you're under-leveled in your accuracy stat even slightly, it seems like 70% of your attacks start missing all the time.

      Β 

      The range of the AoE skills kinda suck too, there's barely any difference between a B rank skill & SS (you're lucky if you can even hit 3 enemies at a time with them). Also if a enemy decides to move & attack before it goes off, it completely screws up your targeting. :shakefist:

      Β 

      The boss fights are very cheap as well, in most cases I just had to charge my TP gauge to max in a normal battle beforehand so I could nuke the bosses on the first turn with specials. This is especially true in the end game, they love throwing 1-hit KO moves at you with tons of status ailments (sometimes before you even get a turn). πŸ€•

      Β 

      I could really only recommend it if you've played other CH games & are a fan of them. Gameplay is definitely on the lower end of the others, but I do think the story is worth it. :hmm:

      Checking if now. Hoping for some good Switch stuff.

      Cross Edge you said?!

      *Vietnam flashbacks* O_o

      Β 

      One day I'll return there...hopefully. xD

      Β 

      Best of luck on your very hard run for this game. :D

  12. I started Dark Rose Valkyrie, I thought since it has a ton of free DLC, I could manage starting on "very hard" (usually free DLC for CH games give you some OP mid game equipment)... this was not the case. πŸ˜… It started out okay, the first couple bosses were manageable, but I was only in chapter 2 when I was forced to lower it down to hard. I'm pretty sure very hard was designed specifically with NG+ in mind, & I think I heard there's supposed to be a huge difficulty spike towards the end, so I'm not even going to attempt that. πŸ˜‚

    Β 

    Hopefully I don't have to lower it anymore, I know your difficulty effects what your level cap is. Don't know if it effects anything for NG+ carryover though? :hmm:

    1. Priere

      Priere

      Yeah, no. Very hard actually should be called Nightmare, cuz that's what it really is. I managed to do a single Very Hard Playthrough so i hope i can help with a few things, such as: be careful, reports show that your PPΒ and Money only carry over a certain percentage of the total rather than stay in tact, and the percentage that carries over gets lower the lower the difficulty played on.Β 

      Β 

      If you believe it or not...i had to buy paid DLC to beat this game, the 2nd PP one and the ultimate equipment set. Still barely managed against the final boss. Best of luck

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      Yeah, I kinda figured VH may be possible if I got the paid DLC, but I rather do 2 playthroughs than do that. πŸ˜… As long as my equipment carries over in NG+, VH should be a lot more manageable... hopefully. :hmm:

      If I knew I'd be doing 2 runs, I would've saved the free DLC for the 2nd one. It didn't make too much of a difference though, so hopefully it won't be needed,

    3. Priere

      Priere

      Oh no....he said the cursed "hopefully it won't be needed".Β

      I'm seriously hoping you don't though, you can do it!

  13. Platinum #190 - Days Gone

    I was originally hoping to get this done by Halloween, but it was longer than expected. πŸ˜… Great game though, glad I didn't rush it. ^_^

  14. One Percenter Go above and BEYOND, unlocking every trophy in Days Gone Difficulty: 3/10 Enjoyment: 9/10 Playtime: 90~ hours (estimate via days counter) This game was so much better than I expected it to be, I shouldn't have put it off for so long. How has this not gotten a sequel?! Overall both the story & gameplay are great, you can play stealthily or just do a head-on assault in most cases. Trophies are all pretty easy & can be done on any difficulty, the only thing I really focused on during my playthrough was the one for looting 541 human enemies, then I just had some collectables & miscellaneous things left to do in post-game (don't think there's any missables). I'll definitely be doing the extra trophies eventually, but for now I wanna start something different...
  15. [Genshin Impact] Over the year I've been playing this game, there's only been 1 character I went for & didn't get... around 8 months later (give or take), I can finally say I got her. :yay:

    NUSNmta.jpg

    I had enough primos to hit pity 3 times, so I was getting her either way. Thankfully I won the 50-50 this time though, so now I have 20K primos leftover that will be saved for later. :D I even did 20 pulls on the weapon banner for the first time ever, & by some miracle I got a 5* pull in that 20... however it was just a Skyward Spine (which I already have 2 of), so I'm not going to push my luck anymore there... πŸ˜…

    1. Masamune

      Masamune

      So yeah... I pushed my luck a bit further & this happened. πŸ˜‚
