  1. Hi.  Regarding playing the JP version of Dragon Age: Origins, how is it?  Are you able to play with English text, or are you perhaps fluent in Japanese?

      If you had two TVs and two PS3s, you could play both at once and use it for dialogue. xD

      @IntroPhenom Sorry for the late reply. I don't read Japanese so it's a hard play. I was using a platinum walkthrough youtube series to get the right dialogue that I wanted. I don't have much time for PlayStation gaming lately so I set it aside for a time when I could dedicate more time to platinum it.

  2. It was missable in early versions of the game, but one of the updates added in respawning replacements by your bunk and in the training room.
  3. Here's a little tip, turn up the difficulty to increase the odds of one spawning, turn down the difficulty once it spawns. You shouldn't need the exploit to get enough levels now, just legendary something you use a lot and/or can quickly level. Where's the fun in using "god-mode" to remove the peril? Killing a legendary dragon on legendary difficulty is something you will remember.
  4. You don't need to bother with uploading/downloading save files, just quit the game after you buy the pictures/voice files without exiting the menu, it doesn't save. You might want to make sure you save a copy to the cloud in case of a mistake.
  5. A bit late, but it sounds like you missed the part to pick the mammoth up from the train. The guide I was using had me place it in the trophy room on the train before leaving the toy factory. I knew I needed it as I had prechecked missable trophies so I took it as soon as we arrived at the Uni.
  6. The actual requirement is for Skald to be your friend (but Bulfrek will sell it), but you must complete Kill the Giant in order for the game to allow that to happen, and the quest should add 2 to his disposition (+2 = friend). If you've done anything to lower that you may have blocked your chance of obtaining the land. If you can become Thane then you should be ok (same requirements), but another route is through Season Unending to replace him, then buy the land, if you can't get them to talk.
  7. I've taken a break from trophy hunting for the last month just to enjoy gaming for a while (mostly Fallout 4 with mods). I let the hunting part take over too much and wasn't enjoying playing anymore. It started in January after I finally got my 20th platinum, and I resolved to complete my backlog of games on my "new" account which was now 3 years old.


    These stats are a small record for myself, before they disappear into the stats ether and I resume shortly, having increased my backlog again. 9 months to double what 3 years took and triple my plats.

    In this time I've also added about 100 games played (a few accidental 0 additions), and about 40 to my 100% games.

      Sometimes a break is good! Getting burned out is never fun. Just so you know, on PS4, you can delete games that don't have any trophies earned if you wanted to remove those 0 additions. And those are some great stats! 

  8. Finish Dawnguard. The attacks won't stop after that but they will drop in frequency to the same as other settlement attacks. Try to avoid the cities until then as they will more than likely kill a merchant or quest giver who will not come back to life.
  9. Rather than worry about something that may or may not happen, just keep a few save files in case it happens. If you are going for trophies then be extra prepared for the Civil War and Oblivion artifacts, as you can lock yourself out of those legitimately. Cidhna Mine and Bugs on the Ice Blood on the Ice are the two buggiest quests in the game, but have no part in trophies so you can avoid them, but you need to do BotI for a house. Also, buy the Falkreath plot of land asap. A few well placed save files are worth more than the hassle and time spent trying to anticipate problems that mostly won't occur.
  10. There are a number of ways to level up fast, most of them covered here. Pickpocketing is by far the most reliable, as it only takes 2-3000 gold to make it. It also happens to be one of the least useful, so its a handy one to legendary over and over without losing any significant perks. Combining it with a Pickpocket trainer and then robbing them makes it an even faster exercise. The best ones to use for leveling are the non-combat ones, including Smithing and Enchanting, as well as Alteration, but by far the best is the fortify restoration glitch and just making super-powered potions that level your skill in one potion. The rather obvious reason you should not use your primary weapon skill for leveling is that you will lose the effectiveness of it, and they are not that easy to re-level even with exploits. Smithing and Enchanting require abundant resources, though the possible riches through iron daggers enchanted with banishment can soften the blow. Alteration requires magicka, but enough items that reduce its cost to zero mean it can be done much faster, though it still requires large crowds that are only available during the day to move quickly. Level 50 should not be hard, as long as you use most of your skills. All magic except Destruction is easy to level up once you have some spells. Wear some light and some heavy armour, or one and then the other. Use sneak, and try to use two damage skills, one ranged (archery or destruction), and one melee (one or two-handed), and use a sword and shield rather than dual-wielding. Dabble in all the crafting; alchemy, enchanting, smithing. A bit of everything will see you reach level 50 in no time, it isn't a hard thing to achieve.
  11. If you don't have gambits on for attacking then its easy enough so long as you only target one type of enemy (wolves, cacti, cockatice, etc). Lhusu mines is by far the easiest as there is only one type of enemy in that area and the start of the next. If 50 do not appear and they stop spawning, run back two areas holding the Flee button (R2), then run back and more will spawn to continue the chain. Entering any "rest" zone, towns, cities, layovers (eg Estersand 2nd zone), or touching a crystal, all seem to reset a chain, so avoid them.
  12. Dustia works but is an awful grind, and requires lots of patience and precise actions to work, nevermind the luck you need to break even before thinking of turning a profit, and ignoring the treks you will need to buy the phoenix downs. Despite all this it is the best way to level everyone because you only need to level Vaan, and after this point the next good grind spots come when you have more than the max 3 party members. I could only stick it as far as level 30 though, which is more than enough to make the bridge a dawdle for grinding (ie no worrying about KOs). Follow the advice and press flee to run back through the zone to preserve your chain though, then you can easily rack up the numbers. The only thing preventing a chain of 200 is that you will have 99 bone fragments by then and have to go sell them. The bridge shown in the video is a guaranteed way to make money. A couple of hours and I had all the monographs bought. Get rid of your guest before going back to grind, as he will steal xp while with you. Most things can be found in treasure pots too, so don't buy if you can find. Amongst other places, the finalfantasy wikia has the exact contents of every chest mapped out for every zone. You only need to go back one zone to respawn the pots, while enemies mostly require two zones, so it is easy to run in and out of a zone to find the weapons and armor multiple times.
  13. I don't remember much from my first time, though I also managed to name him Prisoner and ruin the time I spent on perfecting his ugly mug. I then managed to stand still for about 10 minutes as I couldn't work out how to move. After that things moved at a swift pace until we exited the escape tunnel. I followed the main quest as you are supposed to do and it opens up the world quite nicely at just the right pace. The point at which you are called up the mountain is the point at which the game is yours, even though before that you can deviate, you can't experience every part of the game without doing some of the main quests. A lot of the criticism aimed at Skyrim stems from the notion that everything should be ready when you leave the escape tunnel. Other games have much longer tutorials that you can't skip even when replaying keeping you in a separate area where you can't do anything freely, but Bethesda's games give you the basics and then you can cut it off and go your own way or open up the whole game. The same situation occurs in Fallout, the tutorial does not end when you leave the vault, but you can leave at that point or let the game act as intended. Another criticism comes from Bethesda's take that every person should be a person. In games like Dragon Age you can't kill, steal from, or otherwise do anything to most civilians, shop keepers, or especially quest givers. In order to make a person a person they need scripts to eat, sleep, and work. They need a place to sleep, a voice, words to speak, clothes to wear, even a coffin or urn if killed. So sometimes some of these don't work as intended, some are not written properly, or sometimes they conflict with each other. Would you rather have a city full of Citizens that walked by and didn't insult you because of what you were wearing, unable to kill them and send them to the clouds in the sky rather than the Cloud District? We should really be thankful that they abandoned the practice of Morrowind where you could kill anyone at any time and lock yourself out of a whole lot of quests. I am in no way an apologist for Bethesda or any company that releases bugged software, but the level of criticism in this thread is far more than this game warrants. When considering the percentage of bugs to the size of the game world, it's roughly on par with any other game with their much smaller worlds. If anyone is thinking to plat this game, or even to play it to enjoy it, ignore the complainers here and seek the advice of well-worn travelers. This is a very enjoyable game that can be easily platted. Yes there are bugs, even game-breaking ones, but so long as you make a few saves along the way you can join the other 57 thousand users on the site who have platted it. The Elder Scrolls games also happen to have some of the most popular and well-documented game wiki's, if you do need help or advice, or indeed you can ask here.
  14. "Disgrace" "racially insensitive", and actually more upset with the word Orient than Whore http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/movies/racially-insensitive-computer-game-faces-challenge-over-title-20130901-2syu0.html You are completely delusional to think it won't be debated endlessly because of the title, regardless of the content. I doubt even Team Bondi planned to release it under that title. I'm not even trying to say it shouldn't be, all I'm saying is it would be.
  15. I'm not sure what point you're trying to make here. Just because that was "the way things were" doesn't mean people would be happy with it now, just like any other derogatory name that is now confined to the history books. They could even reduce that to a subtitle like "Shanghai: Whore of the Orient" and then they could market it as "Shanghai" and the let the controversy swirl without the need to change anything before production.
