  1. 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

      Whaaaaaaat?!! They announced Shadow Warrior 3 dood?!

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      @Wdjat Prinny Doods Yeah, just a couple days ago I think. :D

  2. 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

      Masamune

      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.

    3. 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. 😅

      @Masamune Well, they made a huge mistake if they somehow expected that copy you got to pass as a new one. :facepalm:

  4. [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.

  5. 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:

  6. 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:

  7. [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

  8. [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:

    1. Masamune

      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

    2. Dav9834

      Dav9834

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

      And the most fun to platinum

      If it only had the rest of a great game 😭

       

    3. 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... :(

  9. Platinum #169 - Crash Bandicoot 2! :yay:

    Now to start Lightning Returns & finish off the trilogy once again! :D

    1. ShonenCat

      ShonenCat

      Congratz! 🎂 Now go back to Crash 1 and pop the trophies for Stormy Ascent ;)

    3. Masamune

      Masamune

      Thanks! ^_^

       

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

  10. [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! ^_^

  11. [Crash Bandicoot 2] All Gem obtained! :yay: There was probably only about 3 stages that I considered a bit challenging (& they all required backtracking), that was Diggin' it, Cold Hard Crash, & Piston It Away. :hmm:

     

    All that's left now are the Relics... yay. 😑 I wonder how much cussing is going to be involved when trying to get them? 😅

    1. Leon Castle

      Leon Castle

      Good luck with the Polar levels, one of those was like the CB2 version of "The High Road" to me then It came to the Gold Relics.

       

      I can hope if CB4 don't have a level like The High Road or High Time or Polar levels in it.

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      @eigen-space I took a small break between the games... maybe around 30-45 minutes? :P

       

      @Leon Castle Ugh.. please don't say that. 😑 I still get PTSD flashbacks whenever I see rope bridges, & don't need to add polar bears or something to that list too. 😂

    3. Masamune

      Masamune

      Just cleared the Hang Eight stage for the first time & thought I made pretty good time... at first I thought I only got a Sapphire Relic though, but after my eyes had a second to adjust, I noticed it was a damn Platinum Relic! :blink: Didn't think I'd be getting any of those during this. :yay:

  12. Platinum #168 - Final Fantasy XIII-2! :yay:

    Now I think I'm going to take a small RPG break & maybe play Crash 2 next (afterwords I may go ahead & knock out Lighting Returns). :hmm:

      Yeah... I was one of those people that never even opened their Primer. 😅

    3. Dav9834

      Dav9834

      Yep same, I did on my second playthrough though lol, thought it'd be more like past FFs where the lore was in game ><

    4. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      Point taken guys. Many thanks for the confirmation on that. I had the impression the correct thing would've been to go in order (XXIII, then XXIII-2, and finally, Lightning Returns) for me to get the full picture of the story. I'm 100% sure I cannot skip anything now.

       

      I also know it'll be a while until I can reach Catgirl Lightning now, lol. 😂

  13. [Final Fantsy XIII-2] Currently riding around on a Chocobo for the Saddle Sore trophy... & yes, I have Crazy Chocobo playing. xBztIkI.gif

     

    1. Masamune

      Masamune

      Already done, that went nice & quick thanks to the Clock Master Fragment Skill. ^_^

  14. [Final Fantasy XIII-2] I was just about to make an update saying how I forgot how stupidly rare Lightning's DLC crystal is (maybe hoping for a little of that status update magic to kick in :P ), only for it to show up just before I posted it. I guess my status luck traveled through time? 😂

  15. [Final Fantasy XIII-2] Reached chapter 3 (Yaschas Massif) & the game gives you an option of walking in the spotlights to avoid the "dangerous" Behemoth encounters... so what do I do? I jump straight into the darkness & kill like 30 of them till I managed to capture one (I got a ton of CP too). 😂

  16. [Final Fantasy XIII] I thought the trophy for 5-staring all the missions glitched on me, turns out I just missed one of Titan's trails that I only got a 3-star on. 😅 & of course it's one of the last missions in the trials, so I'm going to have to go through 4 missions again till I reach it (& it's not even a hard fight, just against one of those Behemoth type enemies... how did I not 5-star that the first time?!). 😑

    1. Dreggit

      Dreggit

      You got this plat in the bag ;)

    2. Ochaco Uraraka

      Ochaco Uraraka

      It's a pain in the royal ass but you'll manage just fine.

    3. Masamune

      Masamune

      Yeah, I may be able to have it done sometime tomorrow or the next day? :hmm: I'm farming Dark Matters right now, & I'll probably get close to maxing out all my characters in the process. :yay:

  17. Nux Taku's videos are always good for a laugh, I don't think I'll ever get tired of them. 😂

     

    1. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      I subbed this guy not too long ago. He's crazy hilarious in some of his videos. xD

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      Yeah, I think I've watched all his videos since the whole Interspecies Reviewers thing. 😂 I tend to enjoy the Memenator ones a lot (funny since I never paid much attention to memes before this). xD

  18. [Final Fantasy XIII] The Undying Vercingetorix falls! :yay: Nothing like taking out one of the biggest pain in the ass bosses in the game with nothing but Poison (was dead in 10 minutes). 😂

    1. Desidian

      Desidian

      Good ole poison ftw :) it's not "cheap" it's badass.

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      Now Gigantuar has fallen as well! l8IaAIF.gifI've heard of the strategy of using Daze & buffing your party with Enfire & such, but I think that's a total waste of time, relying on an Instant Chain is definitely the way to go (a little luck with that & he was down in 20 seconds). :P

  19. [Final Fantasy XIII] Been farming Sacrifices, up to 2M Gil so far (although I started with 1M since I never spent anything throughout the game :P), I'll probably try to get around 6M or so, that should be enough for most of the equipment upgrading I have to do later. :hmm:

     

    I've already got my characters 3 main roles maxed out to this point too (stage 9), so now I'm working on their secondary roles. xD

    1. Dreggit

      Dreggit

      I think that FFVIIR was pretty good, but yeah, I was not keen on the episodic structure of it either.

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      I've only played the demo, which was okay. The Classic mode definitely needed some tweaking back then though, I don't know if they ever improved that in the main release of not. :hmm: I'll get it eventually, but probably not at least till part 2 is out... I'm kinda curious if there's going to be a PS5 version down the road too. :P

    3. Dreggit

      Dreggit

      I'd be surprised if there wasn't :P

  20. [Final Fantasy XIII] Finally made it to Chapter 13 (current playtime is 38 hours), but I forgot how BS the final boss of CH12 was... <_< I ended up just having a SEN & MED out most of the time & let a COM chip away at its HP (best to avoid staggering it since that just seems to piss it off), which took like 15 minutes. 😑

     

    But now that I'm to this point, I think I'll try to get a Growth Egg, I'm sure that Neochu is going to give me trouble though... oh well, that's what Vanille's Death spell is for. :P Then I can work on some CP/Gil farming!  :yay:

    1. Desidian

      Desidian

      Just a pointer, use an aurora scarf and use the PROTECTION paradigm, have Sazh/hope cast haste real quick, then switch Vanille to SAB to cast imperil on big NEO, THEN cast death if you use VANILLE/HOPE/SNOW Neo SHOULD focus on snow if he's in sentinel form. You SHOULD get 2-3 rounds of DEATH in and with Imperil it SHOULD take a few tries (it took me 2 hrs *1 hr 45 min to find the strat, 15 Min and 6 retries with 2-3 DEATH'S a round) you'll get it bud, i have faith!

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      It took me a few tries, but I got it pretty easily. :yay: 

       

      What I did was equip Fang (SEN) with 3 anti-physical items (had almost 50%), Lightning (MED) had a quick ATB setup for quick healing, & before the battle I just used 2 shrouds to give my whole party haste, protect, etc... as soon as the battle started, I used Imperil, followed by 3-4 Deaths. Once Death finally connected, I just finished off its "younglings" with Vanille's Eidolon. xD

  21. [Final Fantasy XIII] Just made it to the last part of Chapter 9, now I can finally modify my party members! :yay: Normally I just like to stick with the 3 female characters (Lightning, Fang, & Vanille), but I'm tempted to put Sazh in just because he has access to Haste... I guess I'll see how the boss fight goes first. :hmm:

  22. About 15 minutes till the PS5 event... that chat box in YT is going so quick, the messages aren't even readable (which is probably a good thing). 😂

     

    1. milanbarca82

      milanbarca82

      No need to read them as they are cancerous as F***.  Either trolls doing their thing or people who expected way too much from this event.

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      Well at least they finally reveled the console, don't know why they'd waste their time making a digital only version too though (I swear I'll be done with gaming if that ever become the only way to play games). 😅

       

      There was a few games that caught my attention, the obvious ones like Ratchet & Clank, Resident Evil, & Horizon. Then there were a couple new ones that may be pretty good too, like Ghostwire, & maybe Deathloop? :hmm:

       

      @milanbarca82 Oh yeah, as soon as the event started, I just closed the chat box. xD

      *revealed

  23. Platinum #166 - Bad Apple Wars! ^_^

    Basically it was just something to calm down my nerves after Shadow Warrior. 😂 Need to go through my backlog now & see what I'll be doing next... :hmm:

  24. Platinum #165 - Shadow Warrior! ^_^

    @PooPooBlast Thanks for mentioning this game in one of your status updates a while back, I don't think I would've heard about it otherwise. It was totally worth it (even with Heroic mode being a near nightmare). :D

    1. Show previous comments  2 more
    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      @PooPooBlast Yeah, the option was right under Heroic mode I believe. :hmm: I think it has 3 different levels, but yeah... after doing Heroic, I didn't have any drive left to try it out. xD

       

      @DamagingRob There is a bundle of both games on PSN that's gone down as low as $15 during the last sale (honestly just the first game is worth that). SW2 is digital only by the way, unless you're willing to get one of the Limited Run copies on eBay for like $200. 😅

    3. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      Both this and the sequel look like truly awesome FPS games. Crazy, hectic, and over-the-top in everything. I would love to play these two eventually.

       

      Amazing work on the Platinum, congrats! :)

    4. Masamune

      Masamune

      Thanks! ^_^ I actually just got my 166th plat too (it was a VN), so expect that update soon too. 😅
