  1. So Resident Evil 2 (2019) has been out for almost a week now, and if you're anything like me, you've already finished the game a few times. I thought it would be interesting to make a thread where people can post the results screen that pops up after beating a campaign which shows the game mode you were on, total amount of time, number of saves, and the rank you got. It doesn't have to be anything impressive, but since you're required to beat the game multiple times to get the platinum anyway, it would be cool to see how people have improved on subsequent playthroughs. Of course, if you do have an impressive results screen, feel free to show that off to everyone too. Also, after you beat a '2nd Run' campaign and see the true ending, you will gain access to the 'Survivors' game mode. Currently it's limited to just Hunk and Tofu, but it was recently announced they would be adding more characters (source). It's a mode that encourages you to play it over and over again to get a better time, so posting your times in here is also welcome. It's worth mentioning that even if you haven't been taking manual screenshots of your results screens, chances are that your PS4 automatically took one when the trophies for beating the game popped up. Then you can send the image to an alt account or someone's who's inactive (so you don't bother anyone), go to playstation.com, check your messages, save the image to your PC, then upload it to a image hosting site like imgur. All you have to do then is post the link to it in here. There are others ways to do it, but that's the easiest way for me. Alternatively, you can just write down the times you got if you'd prefer doing that. You can check from the main menu in the 'Results' section or by looking at your stats on residentevil.net (so long as you allowed your data to be sent there). Anyway, here's the results screen I got on my first playthrough of Leon's campaign: This was my first playthough of Claire's campaign: And finally, this is the best time I've managed in 4th Survivor so far:
  2. I popped 5 platinums today for the Vita's 7th anniversary event. I've been working on these for a while. #237 - Undertale Don't You Have Anything Better to Do? Obtain all other Undertale trophies. #238 - Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X Trophy Master All trophies unlocked! #239 - Miracle Girls Festival トロフィーマスター 全てのトロフィーを獲得した #240 - Cosmic Star Heroine Heroine Achieve all possible trophies. #241 - Muramasa Rebirth Master of the Oboro Style! Obtained all trophies! I already wrote my thoughts about most of these games somewhere in this thread, so I'm not going to go into much detail about each game here, but I will give a few thoughts. To get the negative out of the way first, I hate Undertale with a passion. I doubt I'll ever understand why it's so popular... Cosmic Star Heroine was a decent game, but I was kind of put off by the character designs and the story didn't really interest me. It was alright. I'm very happy that I was able to finally 100% both Muramasa Rebirth and Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X. I started the former well over 4 years ago and I've been playing the latter in short bursts for about a year and a half. Pretty tough plats too! I had lot of fun with Miracle Girls Festival which is basically a rhythm game with characters from a bunch of different anime. Some really great songs and my anime "want to watch" list has definitely grown after playing it.
  3. Happy (western) anniversary, Vita! It probably took about an hour to plat Undertale from where I left off at because of a rather difficult boss fight that I ended up using all of my health items on to clear. That made the fights against regular enemies that came after more difficult than they should have been. I was expecting the game to give me some trouble, though, which is why i got it out of the way first. Let me tell ya, it's quite a relief to know I never have to play this game again. Everything else went off without a hitch thankfully. I'm most proud of the Muramasa Rebirth plat/100%. I don't know how many people remember this, but back on the Vita's 5th anniversary thread, I said that I was going to platinum this game, but that never ended up happening. The fact that not only was I able complete way more games this time around, but I also got the 100% in a game I previously failed to platinum for one of these events makes me feel like I've redeemed myself. It was quite the task to 100% the game in a relativity short time frame like that, but I got it done. I'm also really happy that I got the platinum in Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X. Without this event, who knows how much longer it would have taken me to finally finish the game? There's only so much you can do in the short bursts I was laying the game in prior to this event. It was quite a challenging plat too, especially for someone of my skill level in rhythm games. I feel like I've definitely improved in the genre. To end off, I just want to say that it has been really awesome seeing all this Vita love over the past few months. We may be small, but the Vita fanbase is still as passionate as ever! I'm really proud to be apart of such a great little community. Also, I've got to give a big shout-out to @Crimson Idol for running the event and giving people like me more of a reason to post on this site. It can't be an easy task compiling all of these stats from everyone! I hope we'll see this event return for the Vita's 8th anniversary. Or are we skipping a year again?
  4. I love the cover art on this one. The game sounds really interesting too.
  5. Alright, I'm only one trophy away from the platinum in Miracle Girls Festival now. It's the trophy for finishing a song after playing the game for a total of 24 hours. I'm currently at 13 hours and 30 minutes, so I'm going to leave the game running over night and hope for the best. There's a PSTV icon on the back of the game's box, so I'm assuming that means it's PSTV compatible. I don't like the idea of leaving my Vita on for 10+ hours straight because of the strain it would put on the screen and battery, so the PSTV should hopefully allow me to bypass that. So yeah, I'm aiming to pop all 5 platinums around this time tomorrow. I'm least looking forward to Undertale since I'm pretty sure there's at least one more boss I have to beat, there's probably more obnoxious puzzles to solve, and I don't even like the game to begin with, so that's gonna be a pain. Assuming no issue crops up with MGF, though, everything else should be smooth sailing. Fingers crossed anyway...
  6. So apparently the Japanese version of the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy for PS4 (which just came out over there) has English subtitles. Not only that, but it released physically too, which doesn't seem to be the case for the west. I mean we don't even have a release date yet. Considering all this, I just decided to import it. I've really been looking forward to playing the trilogy ever since they announced it would be coming to PS4. It's gonna be great. ^_^

      Does it work on all region accounts?

      @Glowbugg Yes, the PS4 is a region free console. The disk will play on any system.

      That is interesting, but AA has some pretty heavy localization. The characters names are puns etc. and it's pretty different in english, though I don't really object this any more than pokemon translations. I mean, I wonder does the import use the english localization or another one? Nonetheless, hope you enjoy this charming tale of anime law&order if you didn't already. It took me by surprise years back when I first played it.

  7. I got my limited edition of Steins;Gate Elite today! The main reason I wanted it was for the Kurisu cloth poster contained inside.
  8. Forehead loli arrived today! Front View: Back View:
  9. It's funny. People have been calling the Vita "dead" for many years now, but here we are in 2019, still having the exact same conversations. Oh, but this time it's for real, right? Despite Sony's best efforts to kill of the Vita time and time again, it still has a small but passionate/dedicated fanbase who are playing the system and buying games for it to this day. I have no reason to believe this latest decision will affect that in any way. I know that I'll still be using my Vita(s) on a regular basis for years to come. I had a feeling that production would be ending soon anyway, which is why I bought a new Vita just a few months ago. There's no way I was going to risk losing access to my vast library of games.
  10. I got around to playing 'The Ghost Survivors' DLC today, so I figured I'd post my times here. Nothing impressive, I was just happy to get them done. Pretty tough! 😅 Out of them all, the 'Forgotten Soldier' scenario probably went the smoothest... at least up until the end. I got past Mr. X just fine, and I killed most of the zombies before the cable car, but I was grabbed twice by the G-Type. I should have tried baiting one of its attacks and dodged past, but I was too nervous. I probably had the hardest time with 'No Time To Mourn', mostly due to how long it was. 'Runaway' was pretty easy and the mayor's daughter is a cutie, so I enjoyed that. I liked the idea behind 'No Way Out' (AKA wave survival), but I wish we had been given a larger area to play it. Was pretty fun, though.
  11. Screw it, I'm positive that I'll be able to get Miracle Girls Festival ready in time, so please add this to my list.
  12. And there we go! Muramasa Rebirth is now ready to pop. There were a couple of bosses that gave me a bit of trouble on Fury difficulty, but it wasn't that bad tbh. Having access to all of these whetstones makes most of them pretty trivial. You just have to be wary of getting caught off-guard. Overall, I had a blast coming back to this game. This was one of the first Vita games I played back in the day and it definitely had a role in me becoming as fond of the system as I am now. It's just as excellent as I remember it being, and it was nice being able to experience some of the DLC for the first time. I had forgotten much of what I had played too, so it felt fresh. The story, art, music, combat... it's all so awesome! I'm really pleased that I managed to complete this game in time for this event. I even have time to spare! Maybe I'll try to get one more quick game done before the deadline, but no promises.
  13. I already owned this game digitally, but it turns out that only the NA version has PSTV support (I don't want to ruin my Vita's analog sticks), so I was forced to import it.
  14. Thankfully I wasn't really using the site for any guides at the moment, so I'm not as inconvenienced by this as some other people are. As for the subtopic of which site I use for guides, it all depends on the game. Neither PST or PSNP have objectively higher quality guides than the other, despite what some people claim. If both sites have a guide in the same game, I'll take a look at both and use the one that's better. I've seen plenty of awful guides on both sites, believe me. Obviously since the guide system on PST has been around a lot longer than PSNP's, though, I find that it's much more likely that PST will have a guide for an older game. Anyway, hopefully the site is back up soon.
  15. I really like the look of this one. I know their previous games have somewhat of a mixed reception (especially Lost Sphear), but I can appreciate how they're making games reminiscent of classic JRPG's. I've not played I Am Setsuna or Lost Sphear yet, but I do own both of them. I'm sure I'll get Oninaki too, probably at launch if it releases physically.
  16. Sometimes I wonder who would want to play games on these difficulties that present no challenge whatsoever, but then I remember that game reviewers are still a thing. To be fair, it must be hard for them to get good at games when they spend more time forcing their political agenda into articles than actually playing the games they're writing about.
  17. Given today's Catherine: Full Body news, I decided to bite the bullet and import the Vita version from Japan. I was already on the fence about doing that after Atlus announced the Vita version wouldn't be coming out over here, but the western release date announcement was the thing that knocked me over the edge. I don't want to wait until September to get my hands on the game, and besides, I recall making this post in 2016...

    I stand by what I said at the time. Catherine is perfect for handheld! I'm so excited to play the game again. :D I'll also try and get my hands on the collector's edition when it releases in the west. I love all the things it comes with. Hopefully it has a separate trophy list from the Japanese version so I can plat it for the 4th time. ^_^

  18. Damn, that Heart’s Desire Premium Edition looks awesome! I assume it'll be available in the UK too, so I'll definitely be getting it. I'm disappointed to hear the western release date is so far away, but I suppose it could be worse.
  19. Another Japanese import arrived today. I've been getting a lot of these lately.
  20. As of typing this, profile updating is still disabled. You can't physically see my progress, but I thought that I would give an update anyway. Cosmic Star Heroine is now ready to pop. When I started the game a couple of days ago, I was initially kind of "ehh" on it. The game didn't really grab me at first, but as I played more, it started to grow on me. I still didn't really care for the story and I thought many of the game's character designs were off-putting. I don't know how the game plays on PS4, but on Vita, I encountered a couple of bugs (getting stuck in a wall and a battle animation that "softlocked" my game) which forced me to reload. The game also crashed a total of three times I believe. The worst part about all of this is how there's no autosave, so I probably lost about an hour of progress in total which was quite frustrating. Loading times on Vita were noticeably long too for a game like this. This all sounds negative, but there were some things I liked about the game as well. The game's OST in particular was great! It was reminiscent of the JRPG's of old in how catchy the tracks were. Character designs aside, the pixel art and cutscenes were quite beautiful at times. The combat was also very fun and I enjoyed experimenting with different attack/buff combinations. So yeah, a solid game overall, but nothing amazing. As for Muramasa Rebirth, all that remains for me to do now are the Fury difficulty playthroughs of the main game. I'm saving the accessory trophy for last (I have all but one of them). I'm fully expecting this to be the most difficult part of my quest for the 100% so far. I have about a week until the end of this event, so I hope that's enough time to do it. I'm quite experienced with the game now so I have faith in myself.
  21. I've been switching back and forth between PS3 and PS4 ever since I got them. It can be a little jarring going back to PS3 after not using it for a couple of months, but I get used to it again real quick. Like sure, the PS4 is a better experience when you're looking at the store, syncing trophies, etc, but actually playing a game is no different other than superficial things like the graphics. Even so, I think most PS3 games still look great. It's a shame to see people missing out on all these great experiences just because there are a few annoying things about the system.
  22. #236 - Devil May Cry Platinum Trophy Unlock all trophies This is a series I've always been interested in, but to be perfectly honest, a certain minority of fans who act like elitist scumbags really put me off playing it. With the announcement of DMC5, I decided that I wouldn't let these people ruin it for me anymore. I'll be playing all of the games in the series and what better to start with than the first one? So this game is definitely rough around the edges, but I can see that it has a lot of potential. I'm reminded a lot of the old PS2 God of War games which certainly isn't a bad thing. I was expecting the combat to be a bit more complex like it is in the later titles, but it's actually pretty basic. There's some cheesy voice acting and its roots as a Resident Evil title are obvious, but I find that quite charming tbh. I liked this game even if it didn't blow me away or anything. I'm playing DMC2 next, and I already know the game is a major step-down, but I guess the positive of that will be how great DMC3 looks in comparison.
  23. I put a lot of time and effort into the Monster Hunter World guide, so I'm delighted to see it reach 1st place. I'm very proud of the final product and it makes me happy to see that it was useful to quite a few people. When I started writing guides towards the end of 2016, I never expected anything I did to gain widespread recognition, let alone winning a guide of the year award two years in a row! I guess now would be a good time to retire from guide writing. Gotta quit while you're ahead and all that. As a newcomer to the Monster Hunter series myself, my first priority when writing the guide was to make the game as approachable as possible for people like me. This was the main inspiration behind making the Tips & Strategies section, compiling many of the game's mechanics and various tips all in one place. Also at the time, there was a lot of misinformation going around about the crowns, with some people even claiming the game could take over 1000 hours to platinum. It was my hope that the guide could put some of these rumours to bed and encourage more people to go for the platinum who were maybe put off at first. After all, if a noob like me can get the plat, so can you! Of course, I'd like to give a big thanks to everyone who helped me along the way. The MHW guide was a team effort of course, and everyone chipped in on some level to make this thing happen with me. I have to give an extra special shout-out to @Redgrave, though, for not only his significant contributions to the guide, but for also making the act of playing the game a blast and one of my favourite experiences this console generation. Couldn't have done it without ya! Lastly, I would like to thank everyone who used, nominated, or said kind things about one of my guides in the past year. It sounds cliche, but I don't write these guides in the hope that I'll get some kind of reward out of it (although that is a very nice bonus of course ). I write guides because I'm a proud member of the trophy hunting community and it brings me great satisfaction to see something I made has helped fellow trophy hunters in some small way. Keep being awesome, people!
  24. I think I just prefer the more agile characters with their air-dash attacks and what not. Gonbe also started off rather useless until you unlock some of his abilities (understandable I guess since he's a farmer). Oh yeah, the Haunted Mansion boss fight? I was expecting to have a lot of trouble with that one on Fury considering how many different phases there, but surprisingly, I managed to beat it in just a couple of tries. I was pretty happy with my performance on that one. Thanks!
  25. A friend recommended this one to me. It's another rhythm game.
