  1. Is it possible to switch a Playstation TV on remotely through the use of the Dualshock controllers, the same way you do with a PS3 and PS4? So far, my efforts with my newly-bought PSTV have been for naught... is there something I'm missing?
  2. Catherine is actually pretty fun! But yeah, getting a Gold prize on all levels in Hard difficulty was hell Assassin's Creed III wasn't difficult at all, but I do remember it taking quite some time to finish. Quite a lot of stuff to do.
  3. Persona 4 Arena Ultimax - Those combo challenge trophies are fucking ridiculous. I'll never be anywhere near good enough to clear one entire character's worth of them, let alone three. Devil May Cry 5 - Getting an S-Rank on every single mission on every single difficulty, including Hell and Hell mode? Right. I'm better off just accepting I'll never get the Platinum. The fact that the game now punishes you for using checkpoints was the last straw. Taiko no Tatsujin - Drum Session! - I have to give major props to anyone that does manage to get the Platinum for this game, because it is absolutely fucking bonkers. If you told me the developers made it absurdly difficult to get on purpose, I would totally believe you. Compared to clearing Bloody Palace with an S-Rank in DMC4 and the aforementioned trophy from DMC5 (Worthy of Legend), Jackpot! was actually quite easy to get. I don't even remember having any problem getting it.
  4. Great update! Would it also be possible to add a "Ascending/Descending Order" option in future?
  5. Updated with #33: Marvel's Spider-Man and #34: Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Also updated Currently Working On and Currently Intending To Play sections.
  6. As long as I like them enough to keep them in my collection, I replay all of them. (Even if my backlog is currently too big to do it right now )
  7. The thing that bothers me the most is that, for all the other games I mentioned, I managed to get at least 90% completion, but Taiko no Tatsujin's trophy list is so insanely difficult that my profile will now forever be tainted with a game that has a measly 43% completon.
  8. This is all that was changed in the Western release: Source: https://medium.com/@syrennemcn/catherine-full-body-part-two-english-version-171f979f7a2a

If you told me the developers made it absurdly difficult to get on purpose, I would totally believe you. I might get the Platinum for Dragon Ball FighterZ one day, if they keep giving free zeni at the current rate, but I'm sure as hell not mindlessly grinding for 100 hours.
  10. I'm not waiting for anything, I already did all of them. Even offline ones I'm only missing four of them - and all from the same game.
  11. I intend to also start Yakuza 0 soon, so sign me up as well, please! P.S: I think you forgot Yakuza 0 inside "Kazuma's Chronicles" 😉
  12. Not really. Part of the fun is seeing which trophy claims which landmark.
  13. They do. You don't need to keep logging in every week. If you come back one year from now, you will have an extra 960 000 zeni just from the weekly union bonus alone. I personally found it better to just let the trophy grind itself over time instead of purposefully spending all those mind-numbing hours in front of the TV just for one trophy. Even if the servers eventually close and the weekly zeni bonus stops coming, at least he remaining grind won't be as bad.
  14. If you're the kind of person that skips the openings and endings when watching anime, I'm sorry, but we can't be friends.

     

    Yes, let's skip 15% of each episode, that sure sounds like a splendid idea!

     

    In all seriousness, though, I consider openings and endings to be an integral part of the experience of watching an anime. People that do skip the OPs and EDs are so focused on watching MORE of it that they don't even stop to consider HOW they're watching it.

     

    And if the way you're watching is on a hurry... then you're not watching it right.

     

    Take your time. Enjoy your anime. Don't skip the openings and endings and you'll see what I mean.

     

    Some of my anime-watching friends do skip the OPs and EDs and whenever they want to do karaoke sessions or singalongs in the car, they only have a pool of about 20 songs to pull from.

     

    Meanwhile, I have more than 500 themes on my playlist.

     

    Meaning, my friends only actually sit through the ones that grip you right from the start, the heavy-hitters, the major successes. ...and neglect the fact that many themes are slow burners that grow on you through repeated exposure.

     

    (Some aren't even all that slow, they just don't grip you immediately on the first watch-through!)

     

    Whenever those friends request DJ duties when on car rides with me, their pool is so limited that it's actually making me grow sick of some of my favorite tunes of all time.

      @Nighcisama You seem to be... more than bewildered, I'd actually say quite up in arms over the way a complete stranger seems to prefer watching his TV shows (and he's watching them the way you're actually supposed to watch them), but you do you, I guess :P

       

      Just so you know, I'm far from alone on this matter and most of my friends also watch the openings and endings every single time. You should watch our car singalongs and our karaoke parties, we have tons of fun because we have a giant pool of songs to draw from. We all love Japanese songs and animation and don't just limit ourselves to the heavy hitters, the ones that grab you right from the start. I personally have enough themes saved up offline to make my own personal radio. Meanwhile, and as I said, the friends I do have that skip the openings and endings only have about a pool of 20 songs to draw from and get tired of them quite quickly.

       

      And it's funny how some of you seem to think that watching the OPs and EDs every time is forcing myself to like the songs, forcing myself to get in the mood. I'm not forcing myself to do anything, I do it because I genuinely like to watch and listen to the theme songs. I guess I just play the long game, look beyond immediate gratification and give stuff more time to appeal to me before I just let them go. And believe you me, I've never regretted it. I certainly came to enjoy a lot more songs than I would have otherwise.

       

      That said, I also know you're far from the only one with your opinion. Quite a few people, like you and @BlazikieronUS, are more into the instant gratification, don't care all that much for the songs and seem to think that watching the openings and endings every single time is a massive waste of time. I don't agree with that point of view and you certainly don't agree with mine, but I mean... you do you. You seem to feel that I'm up in here trying to order people around to do things the way I do, but... dude, it's the Internet. My text, while absolutely faithful to my feelings, was hyperbolic and tongue-in-cheek. It was just a way to put my own opinion out there, not some kind of mass appeal. If you still fell nothing like watching the openings and endings every single episode... then go for it. No skin off my back. I don't even know you. I couldn't possibly care less. Just... remember to calm down a bit before disagreeing with someone on the Internet. There are ways to say you disagree without coming off as aggressive.

      I am not entirely sure why you think that I am that mad about it, believe you me that me being mad would be a whole lot more noticeable and different. As I said I thought your original comment was sounding like a troll or a very questionable rant about what you do and consider to be the right way to do things, and a lot of assuming mixed into it as well, like you thinking that people who skip anime songs don't have hundreds of songs in their audio library because a few of your friends limit themselves to 20 songs when they get to choose the audio.

      If anything, I thought you were mad and therefore posted that rant to bait people into an argument. Peoples perceptions differ I guess, one of these overly sensitive and whiny mods must have agreed with you though because they deleted a bunch of replies, my original reply included, so since shit gets randomly deleted here without notification anyway, any further discussion we could have had is futile and will not happen. You do you I guess, and I just ignore it from now on instead of replying.

      Nope, no baiting whatsoever, just an inoffensive rant that kinda got way out of hand, I guess :P

       

      And regarding the deletion of your original post, sorry about that, that was me. Your post appeared twice on my wall, so I deleted one of them to reduce clutter. Must have been a bug or something, because when I came back, both of them were gone. It's a shame, actually, because I was going to quote from it to show you that, even if you weren't mad, your original wording wasn't exactly the most conducive to polite conversation. I think it went along the lines of "this has got to be the most stupid thing I've ever read on these forums, and that's saying something". And stuff like "overly sensitive and whiny mods" doesn't speak well on your behalf either.
