  1. Oh please. I've seen what you post on this forum. Most of it consists of you quoting someone else just to say that you agree with them, or you post about how the thread should be closed, neither of which contribute anything of value to the conversation.
  2. Yeah, haven't heard that one before... *rolls eyes* I'm not "forcing" my opinion down anyone anyone's throat, I'm merely presenting my own. You know, the whole purpose of a forum like the one we're on...You should try it some time instead of just parroting what other people say.
  3. Well put @Bumperklever. I totally agree with everything you said in your post. Rat Games are making a complete mockery of the trophy system. If this keeps up, it won't be long before trophies are just as worthless as Steam achievements. The trophies in their games are designed to be achieved as quickly as possible. Not only that, but they intentionally make it so each region has its own trophy list to encourage duplicate sales. They even have an account on this very website and advertise it as such because they know their audience. The way this company conducts business is incredibly exploitative towards the community we're all a part of, but despite this, there are people rushing to their defence! Even if you truly believe Rat Games put out "fun" games, that doesn't mean you have to be supportive of everything they do. You should be encouraging them to make worthwhile trophy lists that aren't just trophy whore bait. Let the games speak for themselves! Or what? You don't think people would play them if that was the case? Hmmmmm, I wonder why... I would like to see a new rule to prevent advertisement on this site, or at least make it so you have to disclose it as such. We now have people openly admitting that they're getting paid off to promote this company's games by creating trophy thoughts threads, giveaways, etc. It's getting a bit much.
  4. Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions!: Rikka Version (Movie) Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions!: Take on Me (Movie) I bought Take on Me recently, but it had been a while since I watched the main series, so I watched the recap movie first. Nothing much to say about that one since there were only a few new scenes. As for Take on Me, it didn't really add anything to the story, and I thought the ending was a little disappointing since it basically just maintains the status quo instead of developing the characters. Still, it was an enjoyable ride. It felt good to catch up with these characters again. Kaguya-sama: Love is War (12 Episodes) What a great concept for an anime this is. Two characters who have feelings for each other, but their pride gets in the way of being able to confess those feelings, so they play what I can only describe as "Death Note-like" mind games to try and get the other one to ask them out first. It has been a while since I laughed this much watching an anime - it's genuinely hilarious. The side characters Fujiwara and Ishigami were great too. Great stuff. 👌
  5. How much are they paying you to promote their games?
  6. It was working for me earlier today but now I'm having the same issue you describe. While I'm at it, I noticed the 'Add Favourite' button on guides stopped working for me too, but that has been broken since sometime last week.
  7. Out of all the console manufacturers, I never expected that Sony would be the ones to cave in to these radical feminists/SJW types. Sony talking about doing this to "protect the children" is nothing more than an excuse used to deflect people away from the real reason which is that they're scared of any potential backlash. We already have rating boards and parental controls, so if a kid gets their hands on one of these games without their parents consent, it's their own damn fault. Besides, what harm is an anime game with fanservice going to do? More than something like GTA or Mortal Kombat? Give me a break... You just know these people who are indifferent or even supportive of this censorship policy would quickly change their tune once it started affecting the game they care about. The logical conclusion to Sony's line of thinking is that not only is sexualizing virtual women is bad, but so is violence towards them too. Give them an inch and they'll take a mile. Just because the censorship of these games isn't directly affecting you doesn't mean you should sit idly by and let this happen. Can't you see it's wrong to tell grown ass adults what they can and can't enjoy? "Censorship is telling a man he can't have a steak just because a baby can't chew it."
  8. I would love a filter for these trophy whore games. I'm also getting really tired of seeing them clog up the 'New Trophy List' section of the site, accompanied by the same kinds of threads full of people salivating at the mouth at the idea of getting another easy platinum. You can call me a trophy elitist all you like, but honestly, it's fucking embarrassing to be associated with these people. Hell, I'd go a step further with this filter and just remove these trophy lists from the site altogether. Make it so they automatically get hidden on someone's profile. Can you imagine the outrage? It would be hilarious.
  9. So I've been playing the Crash Bandicoot remake for PS4 in-between other stuff, and man, I'm not enjoying it at all. I've played way tougher games than this over the past few years, but none have tried my patience like this one does. I can't even bring myself to play it for more than an hour at a time. It's surprising because I have fond memories of playing Crash on the PS1 as a child, but I guess some things are better left in the past.

     

    I'm also playing the first Borderlands and it's okay I guess? Don't get me wrong. I'm having fun playing with a friend of mine, but that doesn't change how monotonous the moment to moment gameplay is. So many fetch quests, bullet sponge enemies, uninteresting story, etc. While the "humour" isn't as cringey as it is in the other Borderlands games, it's still not funny. Oh, and the PS4 port still feels broken when you play multiplayer, so that's nice.

     

    I've dabbled in NieR a bit recently, but I'm not very far into it yet. I'm sure I'll love it once I get further into the story, but it hasn't really grabbed me yet, unlike Drakengard 3 which had me right from the get-go. I'm just logging in for 10 minutes a day now to harvest and plant seeds in the protagonist's garden, at least until I finish up some other games. :P

     

    So yeah, against all the odds, Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World has been the game I've enjoyed playing the most recently by far. I'm about 20 hours into it now and I still don't understand why it gets all this hate. Maybe it's because I've been dying to play a JRPG recently, but I really like it. :dunno:

      You might notice the jumping mechanics are a bit different than they were in the original Crash Bandicoot.  In the old version, you'd jump up and down and stay the same speed.  In the new version, you slow as you reach the apex of the jump and fall faster.  I started out with Crash 2 and 3 and almost immediately in the time trials, I started noticing something wasn't right and found out about the jump gravity.  Crash 1 will probably be unfinished for me for a long time.

       

      Good luck on Crash!

      Ah okay. It did feel a bit "off" to me, but I wasn't sure if that was just because of how long it has been since I last played the game. That sucks. Thanks though! I'll keep at it, at least in short bursts. :P

      2 and 3 might be a lot easier to get into as they have the slide jump, which kind of compensates for issues caused by the gravity change.  And there's a tiny trick with the time trials.  The DLC level counts as extra.  So if you manage to get the gold relic in it.  The helpful hint is 'Good Luck.  You're gonna need it.  They're not lying.  But it'd be worth going for anyway if you're going for 100% as the gold relic is tied to a trophy.  And grinding that out, the rest of the game would seem like cake.

       

      Also, another trick I heard about which works decently is in the bridge levels.  If you walk on the rope, you can skip a lot of the hazards as long as you're careful.

      * The Stormy Ascent gold relic means you can skip one gold relic from the main story for the trophy.

  10. Sony are a bunch of hypocrites, that's why.
  11. More info: https://nichegamer.com/2019/04/16/sony-now-internally-regulates-sexual-content-in-video-games/ So basically they're scared of the nutjobs in the so-called #MeToo movement. It's really quite pathetic... All this stuff about them wanting to protect the children is a load of BS since rating boards already exist, as do parental controls. From the sounds of it, they made it a worldwide policy due to the rise of sites like YouTube and Twitch allowing these niche Japanese games to get more exposure than they would have in the past. They're bending the knee to people who never had any interest in playing these games in the first place, burning bridges with developers and their actual customers in the process. We'll see how that works out for them... It's interesting how this news dropped on the same day as details of the PS5 came out...
  12. Wow, I'm surprised Mark Cerny talked so candidly about the PS5 which hasn't even been officially announced yet. This is the kind of stuff I would have expected to find out during the reveal event. One of the most exciting things for me is the SSD. Considering how much more expensive they typically are than a standard HDD of the same size, I wouldn't have expected a next gen console to come shipped with one right out of the box. No more minute long loading screens like we've gotten used to over the years... That's pretty huge. The whole 3D audio thing sounds interesting too. I'm not surprised in the slightest that it's backwards compatible with PS4. There was no mention of PS1/PS2/PS3 support, but I guess there's always the chance that could be discussed later. I'd be disappointed if it was only backwards compatible with PS4.
  13. I started Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World yesterday. I'm about 7 hours into the game now, and you know what? I'm enjoying myself. It can't hold a candle to the original Symphonia of course, but I was expecting the game to be far worse based off how people talk about it. I'm interested to see how the story unfolds. I just wish Emil had some backbone; he's probably the lamest JRPG protagonist I've ever played as. :P Always apologising and talking about how scared he is... I hope he improves later on. Thankfully the main girl, Marta, is a much better character. She's a real cutie too. :D So yeah, I'm glad I didn't skip this game like I was going to before I decided to plat all the games in the series.

      That's one game I bought for Wii ages ago but never could get beyond the beginning due to lack of interest. I hope your experience with it is far greater ^^

      Glad you're enjoying the game. A lot of people seem to talk trash about this one out there but it looks good to me from a distance. Have the collection on PS3, might give it a try at some point. 

       

      Looking forward to reading your full thoughts on it if you decide to go for the Platinum. ^^

  14. I'm on PC using Chrome. Just tried to clear cached images and cookies to see if that would help, but nope.
  15. I just noticed that I can no longer favourite guides. Some sort of bug? It lets me remove favourite and add it again, but nothing happens when I click the button on guides I've not interacted with before.
