  3. #111 Dark Cloud 2.  The final dungeon was not as bad as I thought it was going to be.  Having made max stat final weapons with every bonus on them really helped.

     

    I started (and nearly finished) Dungeon Punks as well.  But I have passed level 40 (on character is lvl 42, the rest are all 40) and no lvl 40 trophy.  I hope it comes before I beat new game plus, otherwise it will remain forever unfinished :(.

     

    Also, I got the flooring in both spare rooms finished, and we put all the furniture that was pilled up in the living room back into the bedrooms.  All in all it was a pretty productive weekend :).

      Great job! 👍

  4. This just glitched on me as well. I am glad to hear that it eventually unlocked for you. Honestly, if I hadn't found this post, I may have stoped playing the game. I hope it unlocks for me later as well.
  5. It is difficult to tell what they will take away from this. The optimist in my thinks that if sales go up after that date, they will think that they need to temper the microtransactions in the future to increase sales, but the pessimist in me agrees with your concern. If you are concerned about giving the developer money, but still want to play the game, wouldn't buying it used be a potential solution?
  6. Who introduced you to the wonders of this fantastic hobby? My first memories of gaming were playing Top Gear on the SNES trying to be better than my Dad. He was never really into video games, but I think he found it as something we could do together, so it started from there. Then I was hooked. My social skills are not very strong, and I enjoy my time alone, so I found a love for gaming, and it grew from there. If you are in a relationship, has it influenced your gaming habits? I am in a relationship, happily married since June 2016. It is difficult to tell the exact effect my wife has had on my gaming habits, because life has changed a lot for me at the same time (full time job, owning and renovating a house, other adult responsibilities), but I do still get my time to play games. We actually have two TV's side by side in our media room, with a PS4 hooked up to both, and Netflix on both as well. That way if I want to play something, and she wants to watch something else, or if we want to game together (and couch co-op isn't a thing) we can play together while still sitting on the couch cuddling. It has seemed to work for us, and I am happy that it does. Do you play together and how is that? We do play together, but we get different things out of it. Gaming is my release, it helps me relax after a long day. For her though, it requires focus and attention, so it is far less relaxing for her. After a long or busy day, she would rather lay down and watch some Netflix than game. That said, there are still times when she is happy to play something together, so I always keep my eyes out for fun games that we can play together. Would you try to share the sense of amazement with your partner or would you rather have your hobby for yourself and your partner should have his/hers? While I would never try to force her to, I would love it if she had the same passion and joy for gaming as I do. Every time she mentions something gaming related, I try my best to encourage her and help her along. She has no real desire to get trophies, but I think I may be slowly changing that, with the help of HZD. It is the first game she actually showed an interest in playing through to the platinum, and actually on top of that, she kept playing to get 100%. She showed an interest in God of War before I ever actually brought it up, which is huge. I encouraged that spark, and even gave her priority access to the bigger tv and the PS4 pro to play it on, as I think that is a better way to experience it. That is actually also the reason why I have not started it yet. I want her to experience it truly blind, and I am loving watching her explore and see the world. It is like I get to experience it with her. The only downside to this is that she doesn't want to game as often as I do, so it will just be a slower process, but if it means I get to share something awesome with her, then it will be worth it. Where are you on this? I don't really understand the question. If it is what I think it is, then it has been answered by my previous answer. I love every time Mrs_Sir_Bee shows any sort of interest in gaming, and I use every opportunity I can to show her why I love this medium so much, and to try and share my joy with her.
  7. So it turns out that I was very thorough as I played through Dark Cloud 2.  I have a save right before the boss of every chapter (so I know I didn't miss any medals), and I also have a max stat LEGEND and Island King, and very high stat off hand weapons as well.  Just got my last two inventions last night, and got my monster to 76 (for the monster evolving trophy).  Now I just have to get all the medals in the MASSIVE mines in chapter 8 and I should have another shiny new platinum :).

      Dark Cloud 2 is a really awesome game! I remember playing it on PS2, even though I grinded a lot. But remember that the last dungeon I completed was the forest one where you have to fight a multicolor butterfly (?) as a boss. I bought it for PS4 and excited to play it, but must finish other games first, since this one is big!

    2. Sir_Bee

      Sir_Bee

      It is a big game, and one of my favourite on the PS2.  I have put 160+ hours in so far (a lot of that was grinding for the max stat weapons, but still).  I am getting close to the end though, so I am excited :)

      160+ hours... gosh, that's a lot, man... xD

  8. If he doesn't deserve the award, who does?
  9. I am a little worried about my Dark Cloud 2 save.  I am currently on Chapter 8, and for those who do not know, when you beat the Chapter 7 boss, you are locked out of the Chapter 7 area.  I have all the pictures I need from that area, but I am not certain I have all the medals.  I did know about the lockout, so being the trophy hunter I am I probably got all the medals, but it would really suck to do all the work on Chapter 8, getting all the medals, only to find out that I missed one that I cannot go back for...

     

    Oh well, I guess I just have to trust my past self.

      How do you call it if you have no older save in the cloud? A dark cloud.

       

      Sorry. I couldn't resist.

       

      Hope you did everything though and you dont have to replay the whole bunch :(

    3. Sir_Bee

      Sir_Bee

      lol nice.

       

      I actually have a save every chapter, so I guess I could load up the chapter 7 chapter and see what is there.  That actually isn't a bad idea.

      That's great! If you're really not sure anymore better be safe than sorry.

  10. #110 Swords of Ditto.  I was very sad when I started this game to find out that only player 1 got trophies, but I ventured on.  I am not sure if it was a glitch, but on my last two lives, I kept all my stickers and several toys.

     

    This game was fun, in short bursts.  It was not a game that I could marathon, because it got boring and repetitive quite quickly.

     

    Right now I am just spinning my wheels so to speak, waiting for Rainbow Skies to come out in June.  I decided to go back and clean up the last few trophies in Dark Cloud 2.

      Just to be 100% sure about this game. Co-op is only local right ?

    3. Sir_Bee

      Sir_Bee

      @Roster60 yes, and unless it has been patched, I will mention again that only player 1 gets the trophies.

    4. Roster60

      Roster60

      Alright, that's good to know. Thanks for your reply.

  11. I am going to be a little pedantic here, but the ps4 has been out for 4+ years now. Is it not about time we call it "Current Gen"?
  12. I think that you just need to earn a trophy in any other game, sync them, and then update your profile here, and it should fix your problem (assuming that you have fewer than 3 flagged games.).
  13. Our new Weber BBQ and a decent 4 piece patio set for our deck will be delivered tomorrow.  Our deck is going to be a pretty decent place to be soon :)

      Sir_Bee

      I am actually going to be at my grandmothers, because I go there every Friday to BBQ a meal for them, so I won't even get to use it tomorrow.  You can be sure it will be used on Saturday though :)

  14. So I was exploring the map I was given in Swords of Ditto, and this time there are no shrines at all for me to get an extra life or turn back time.  While I will have enough time to destroy both anchors, I will likely not be able to max my level (too many dungeons have been half xp), which means the start of the next life will be slow.  I also haven't seen the penguin in 3 lives.

     

    This is the problem with randomly generate games.  Without a strict set of rules, you could end up in a dungeon with very evil trials, or one that simply cannot be beaten by only one player (I saw a key door that was blocked by a half wall at the top and two holes down the side.  Only way to get to it was to bring in a second payer and throw me over the hole).  The game is still enjoyable in short bursts, but it is far from perfect.

      I found it really enjoyable, I bearly had any trouble with maps. The ones I did were it was meant for two people or it was unsolvable didn't bother me, it's a rogue like so I expected it. They never have rules which is why people struggle more then others. The trials are also not that bad, in one of Mormo's dungeon I had stickers disabled, attacks do less damage, I couldn't eat food and ether did more damage. It was a pain but I was still able to do it, leveling up was the only way I got health back but at that point I was high enough level and I had the foot. Sometimes it makes you think outside the box and you can't always reply on things you have which is what I liked. =)

    2. Sir_Bee

      Sir_Bee

      All randomly generated games have rules.  Otherwise they wouldn't be complete maps, they would just be a mess.  If you want your game to be able to be one player, you should be able to beat it with one player.  It becomes a major problem when your first toy dungeon creates a map that requires 2 players.  That will almost certainly result in your death if you don't have a second controller.  I am ok with dying on something because it is difficult, but not when it is impossible or unfair.

       

      PS not being able to eat food is actually an excellent trial, as it automatically regenerates health (and quickly too).  Some combinations are difficult (projectiles do half damage and enemies explode on death), while some are unfair (sword does half damage, physical attacks do half damage, enemies are much stronger, enemies regenerate health, on the first toy dungeon where your only available toy is the watch...).  Diablo has rule-sets for their champion mobs, because some bonuses make them nearly impossible to beat.  I think that it would be reasonable to provide some limits to the trial combinations.

       

      Maybe you have gotten lucky, or I have gotten unlucky, but I have had an impossible or unfair map every single life.  I had a world map that had 5 dungeons locked behind a magic root, but the root had to be in one of the dungeons, because I rewound time 3-4 times and explored every inch of the world map and every single dungeon, and it was nowhere to be found.

  15. I was playing Swords of Ditto last night, and the first toy dungeon has the trials that lower physical damage, half sword damage, and enemies are much stronger.  That's ok, I will manage.  Then I got into a single square room, where all 3 entrance doors locked, and then the stupid robot kept spawning new enemies faster than I could kill them (being able to do so little damage).  I was literally trapped with no way out.  There was no button on the ground, nothing to move, I assume the only way out was to kill the enemies, but I could never kill them all before new ones were spawned.  Sure, I could use the Kazoo, but I would still eventually have to beat this dungeon, and without any toys, it becomes nearly impossible.  I either have to save up a bunch of money by fighting in random other places to buy a toy (none of which were super helpful anyway), or die.

      The big robot can only be killed with very high damage, just shoot it with the popper and it'll go away eventually. =)

    2. Sir_Bee

      Sir_Bee

      He goes away sure, but he keeps coming back.  Doing such little damage to the other enemies, he comes back before I can kill them all, and the doors never open.
