  1. [Persona 5R] Been experimenting with the Velvet Room alarm & "accidents", I probably wasted a couple hours just messing with that. 😂 I think this was probably the best result though (gotta love anything that helps keep that SP up during long trips). :hmm:

      Do they stack? I never thought they did

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      Yeah, I think all stuff like that stacks. I'll probably only keep Life Aid, Heart Up, & maybe Regenerate 3 though. :hmm:

      Dav9834

      Ah ok good to know! 

  2. Yep... I couldn't agree more with this one. :facepalm:

      When I first saw that thumbnail, I thought; that can't be real, Nux is just going for more clickbait again... but no, it's real. :blink:

      If someone is actually messed-up enough to try & defend a Netflix show like that though, pretty much all you can do is laugh at them... because they obviously lack common sense. 😂

       

      I heard Netflix pretty much greenlights anything, but come on... that's just sick. :facepalm:

      @Kristen Danielle That's something else I find laughable, those pageants... gotta feel sorry for those kids that their parents push into that crap. <_<

    3. Kristen Danielle

      Kristen Danielle

      Definitely. They just want the accolades and awards they never got themselves. It's disgusting.

    4. Sword

      Sword

      As long as people realize that a great majority of Americans would never ever support something like this, because stuff like this is absolutely wicked to me and many people I know. Outrageous and disgusting!

  3. It's already Friday again! :blink: I don't know about the rest of you, but I've been really losing track of time lately (I blame F/GO)... It feels like I just did this status for @MidnightDragon last week, but no... it's been two weeks since then. 😅

     

    Like last time (the past month actually), I don't have anything specific planned except playing more Fate/Grand Order... I promise I'll be coming back to trophy hunting eventually, when I find a good stopping point... if this game even has one that is (I've seen people that have been playing years at a time). So hopefully some of you have more interesting plans than I do. 😂

      @Honor_Hand Some lagging on it is pretty normal for me (especially if a party member is getting swapped out during combat), there was one point where & got a ton of lag during the last few battles of the 3rd Singularity (even crashed once), but the battles have been fine since then (just cleared the 6th arc). :hmm:

       

      Let me know if you ever get back into it, I can give you my ID for some extra support. I don't anything too game-breaking, but I have a few in the Lv70-80 range. :P

      @Masamune I see. Must be a thing with the game then. :hmm: I thought maybe it was my network or something.

       

      Thanks, man. :D If ever decide to go back to hunt some Fate GO waifus, I'll be sure to exchange IDs with you.  :P

    4. Masamune

      Masamune

      It may've just been some lag due to busy servers, especially if you were playing around the time a new event or update was released. When I had my issue, I think one event was just about to end, & another was starting up. :hmm:

  4. It's Friday once again, PSNP! FznRLfz.gif I'll be covering this weekly status for @MidnightDragon again this time. :P

     

    I don't have much planned for this weekend myself (the last few days had awesome weather, almost like early fall... but now it's getting hot/humid again :( ), I decided to put a pause on P5R since I've been putting so little time in it lately, & just focusing on Fate/Grand Order (gotta finish the current summer event so I can get Berserker Jeanne d'Arc). :awesome: I noticed season 3 of The Seven Deadly Sins is out now too, so I may start that if I have the time. :hmm:

      @Wdjat Prinny Doods I made Chef Boyardee pizza last night. :holy: & now I probably have enough leftover for the whole weekend. xD

  5. I got my code for beating the first palace in P5R (took about 2 days), so hopefully I won't have any issues with the other ones too. ^_^ I wasn't expecting the theme you get to be dynamic either, so that was a nice surprise. :D

  6. Platinum #172 - Shadow Warrior 2! ^_^ A truly awesome game, can't wait for 3. :D

    & yes, I made "The Way of Masamune" trophy my 7,500th trophy, which the site may not consider a milestone, but I do (& will soon be in my trophy cabinet). :P Now back to Persona 5R (& maybe some Fate/Grand Order on the side). :yay:

  7. [Shadow Warrior 2] Orbs of Masamune: 5181/10000, I've been slacking on my grinding lately, I should've had this mostly done by now. 😅 I tried to watch some anime while working on it last night to help speed it along, but that just resulted in me focusing on the anime more than the game (which ended up getting me killed more than once). 😂

    1. Masamune

      Masamune

      The good news is I think I'm finally strong enough to start farming Insanity 3 trials, that'll give me 37 orbs per clear instead of the 32 I've been getting. :yay: I can actually go all the way up to Insanity 7, but I don't see how that difficulty is even playable. 😅

  8. [Shadow Warrior 2] All I need to do for the plat now is grind about 9000 Orbs of Masamune for "The Way of Masamune" trophy. However, before I do that, I'm going to go ahead & start my next game (P5R) & earn 10 trophies in that so I make said trophy my (unofficial) milestone of trophy #7,500! :P

      Im disappointed:spank:

    3. Masamune

      Masamune

      Believe me, I considered it. But once I tried the game out some, it was so good I couldn't put the thing down... so I knew I wouldn't be waiting to finish it off at that point. 😅

    4. Dav9834

      Dav9834

      Ok fair enough I can understand lol

  9. [Shadow Warrior 2] No Pain No Gain difficulty hasn't been too bad so far, I've died a couple times, but nothing too bad. :hmm: In fact, I think I'm going to up it up to Insanity 2 for a bit (for some extra XP), I'll probably have to lower it back down to 1 later though.

  10. [Shadow Warrior 2] Okay... I got all the side quests done, my weapons & Gems nice & organized, & I've already hit Lv50... I think it's about time to take on the final mission! :yay: Although I'm playing on the easiest difficulty, so I'm not expecting much of a challenge (looking forward to NG+ on the hardest difficulty though). :P

      Looks like a hell of a lot of fun. Has the old school first person shooter appeal to it, which I prefer over modern day first person shooters like Call of Duty and Battlefield.

    3. PooPooBlast

      One question Masamune

       

      How are you finding collecting the collectibles? Heard they were a PITA because they're randomly generated. 

       

      If they're anything like the secrets in the first game well I'm screwed lol because there's no way I'm finding those without help

       

      Edit: not randomly generated but I meant the collectibles are in the same place but in randomly generated areas which makes it difficult to know where it is*

    4. Masamune

      Masamune

      @Spaz Both games are a blast (although there are some big differences between the two), I'd definitely recommend checking them out if you enjoy FPS games. :D Just be warned the plat for the first is very challenging (I recently got a message on PSN from someone wanting my save data). 😂

       

      The 1+2 bundle is actually on sale right now for $15 on PSN, that's a steal for this series.

       

      @PooPooBlast Yeah, those collectables really sucked... 😑 I used 2 separate guides on Steam:

      https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=782614856

      https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=784575949

       

      I mainly focused on the 1st one, but every now & then I'd check the other since it covers some the other doesn't. If you manage to get most of them, you should be able to hit 50 before the halfway point in the game (which is about all those guides cover).

  11. I recently got a friend request on PSN asking if I still had my Shadow Warrior save data... gee, I wonder why they'd want to know that for? 😅

    1. Leon Castle

      Leon Castle

      So they can plat Shadow Warrior without doing Heroic difficulty maybe?

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      Yeah, I just deleted it. :facepalm:

    3. DamagingRob

      DamagingRob

      Some people, man. Lol. I remember someone asking for my Kung Fu Panda save..

  12. [Shadow Warrior 2] I was fighting this big enemy that summoned some reinforcements, only I guess their animation glitched on them...

    Looked like I was being chased by damn scarecrows or something (kinda creepy actually). 😂 Could've swore something similar happened in the last game too. :hmm:

    1. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Ah yes the power of the T Pose :P

       

  13. [Shadow Warrior 2] I just got a Gem called "Carnivorous Essence of Protection", although at first glance I thought it said "Coronavirus Essence of Protection". :blink: My first though was, yeah... I can use that. 😂

    1. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      This pretty much proves that the pandemic and the quarantine are slowly chipping away at our sanity in one way or another, lol. 😂

    2. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Lol! I read it the same way at first and was like "wait a minute" :P

  14. [Shadow Warrior 2] The pros of this game so far (@PooPooBlast you may be interested in this):

    • No stamina bar, I can dash around like a madman! :awesome:
    • The ability to double jump.
    • No fall damage... thank God. 😅
    • Health bars on enemies.
    • Sword skills can now be used just by pointing the L stick in a direction + holding L2 (& I think other skills are just assigned to the directional buttons), no more double tapping or swiping! :yay:

     

    Yeah, that's just from the first 5 minutes of gameplay. xD I'm interested to see what else has been added, it looks like there are armor/accessory slots too, I don't have any yet though. :hmm:

      Masamune

      @PooPooBlast A bit of advice for when you start it, some of the levels have randomly generated areas in it (like Shadow Hills), this makes following a guide for the collectables a huge pain, & apparently some secrets won't even spawn depending on the layout... I probably wasted over an hour searching the Shadow Hills until I figured this out. 😑

    3. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Oh wait a sec. Am I understanding this correctly? 

       

      So basically you have randomly generated levels which means you have to wait to get lucky for the right map to spawn and this will be the only chance to get collectibles until the same layout spawns again later? 

    4. Masamune

      Masamune

      You can go back to these levels any time you want, I think (free roam). This game is a lot less liner than the previous, you can go around your main base & accept sidequests & bounties, then just warp to whatever location you need. I think there are some unique story locations you have to be careful of that you can't go back to afterwords though.

       

      The good thing is that you only need to find 50 secrets for the plat, & there's supposed to be quite a few more than that around. The trophy is probably still missable because of the story locations, but missing one or two secrets shouldn't lock you out of the trophy at least. :hmm:

  15. Platinum #171 - Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped! ^_^

    Next up will be Shadow Warrior 2! :yay:

  16. Didn't have to wait long for Shadow Warrior 2 to go back on sale, looks like I know what I'll be playing after Crash 3. :P

      Nice, I'll need to finish up the 2nd one this year then

  17. Ugh... I had to pour out a whole bottle of this flavored water I like to drink, why? Well I opened it up & was about to take a drink until I got a slight smell of something similar to a sewer... yep, it was the water. wRuJtMi.gif I guess it went stagnant or something, I didn't even know they could do that... I've drank a ton of the stuff too (multiple different brands, both canned & bottled), & that's the first time I ever came across something like that. k5n7wyF.gif

      Yeah, that scent of Black Cherry + Sewage is going to turn me off that flavor for a while. 😅

      Avatar_Of_Battle

      Well...you smelled something so at least you don't have covid? :dunno:

      Also, wonder how many people reading this will now sniff any bottles they open in the future lol.

    4. Masamune

      Masamune

      Yeah, so I guess that's one good thing at least. 😂 I know flavored water is now on my list of things I smell before drinking, right next to milk. 😅

  19. [Lightning Returns] Beginning of Day 6 & I'm done with the 5 main quests, so really I just need to kill some time until the final day with some sidequests now (although I've probably already done enough to unlock the Extra Day, I think there's still some available in Luxerion, & Yusnaan). :hmm:

     

    Oh, & this'd be a good time to farm the rest of the Soul Seeds I need for an elixir too (think I need around 40 more), I should be able to get that many in about 8 in-game hours using the Death Game sidequest.

  20. Happy 4th of July, PSNP! 🎆

     

    I just shot off some fireworks in Lightning Returns. 😂

    1O6laRJ.jpg

    Of course I'll be shooting off some real ones in a couple hours too. :P Mainly these:

  21. Got my P5R bundle in already, love that steelbook. :holy:

    DgZfWkQ.jpg

    Now I'm just waiting for Senran Kagura Burst, which probably won't arrive till next week (being a holiday weekend & all). :hmm:

  22. [Lightning Returns] Just finished up the Wildlands main quest, & it way before I was supposed to. 😅 The boss was pretty tough at this point in the game (day 4), even on easy... but I wanted that badass quick-stagger sword you get after clearing it. :holy:

     

    I did this just in my spare time I had waiting for the Yusnaan quest to progress too, so I'm about to finish that up as well. xD

    1. Masamune

      Masamune

      I retract my previous statement about it being difficult, I just redid the fight out of curiosity to see it I could do a little better (& not waste all my items), & I defeated him on the first stagger by using 3-4 Overclocks in a row... I forgot how cheap you could be with those things. 😂

    2. eigen-space

      eigen-space

      I didn't do him until Day 7 and it was still a little rough. Granted, I completely forgot to restock on items before going into that battle so I had to use most of my EP on Curaga instead of Overclocking him xD

    3. Masamune

      Masamune

      Thankfully he's pretty easy to stagger in the beginning because he always starts in Commando mode, a couple Beat Down/Jump attacks usually does it, then I kept spamming Slayer (from the FFVII Garb) & Overclock, he didn't even have a chance to buff himself up (I had deprotect on him too). xD

  23. [Lightning Returns] I forgot that the FFVII victory fanfare plays when you're wearing the VII DLC garb, I love that. :D I also forgot how OP said garb's Slayer ability is, I love one-shotting enemies with that. :devil:

     

    Oh, & I guess the Outerworld services don't work anymore? I remember it could be used to help with a certain trophy, but wasn't necessary for it. :hmm:

      Masamune

      Yeah, apparently they cost 360K. 😅 From what I remember though, I never even found an NPC to buy one from before, so I ended up having to collect the extra seeds anyways.

       

      But they probably just closed down the servers, Facebook wasn't a necessity to use it. Once I got an Elixir, I think I had my NPC selling it just to see if I could help anyone out. xD

      Dav9834

      Ahh ya lightning returns had the best fighting of the 3 imo

    4. Masamune

      Masamune

      @Dav9834 Personally I preferred the battle system of the other 2 over this one, this is a bit more of an active type battle system & a little too fast-paced imo, it lost most of the turn-based feeling the other 2 had... :(

      @ShonenCat I doubt I'll ever get those, that stage seemed harder than The High Road. 😅

  25. [Crash Bandicoot 2] Relic progress: 21/27, they were all going fairly well till I hit "Piston It Away" last night... that stage can suck it. 😑 I finally cleared it today though, somehow I even got a Platinum Relic on it too (my 3rd one), which I had to save a recording of. :P

    I hope that was the worst one... but I only have 6 left now, so hopefully I'll get this done today! ^_^
