  1. I'm disappointed that there will not be a campaign. For a COD game, there's no excuse not to have a campaign and Treyarch's explanation on why it was removed seems to be total BS.... Credit to YongYea for the video Basically, Treyarch is saying the change is because the amount of people who play the campaign is much less than the number of people that play the other modes. trying to change things is another reason. They're also claiming that a traditional campaign in Black Ops 4 was never in the works to begin with. The video actually uses stats on this website to help prove why the number of people that play the campaign is much greater than Treyarch likes to think.
  2. I loved it! I thought it was better than the first one.
  3. Homefront: The Revolution at 100%!

     

    Decent game. It's still a pretty buggy mess though.

     

    I do like how the character you play as throughout the entire main campaign is completely mute only for him to be the most vocal person out of everyone in the DLC's lol.

  4. Quick question. What's everyone's thoughts on the F2P game called "Paladins".

     

    I think it looks interesting and something I'm in the mood to play but is it actually enjoyable? How are the trophies?

      Terrible. But I'm biased. I was a founder on PC, and after patch... 28? too lazy to look up what it was, they drastically changed the game... conveniently to be more like Overwatch [only shitty imo]. Gone were long firefights and strategy. In goes what every other FPS gives you in current year. Fun.

      When it hit Steam I was going to give it a second shot, but Ying wasn't even in the game at that point for some reason and she was my favorite. So that annoyed me.

      I hate Hirez for ruining what I loved about Paladins. So I haven't touched it on PS4. Never will. I'm still butthurt.

      Yeah, since the other modes have players respawn, you'd have to somehow take everyone out at once, while also having all your teammates go down. The rest of the list wasn't too bad. But that trophy may require boosting. Along with that kill a player with a 15 kill streak. Though it's not impossible to get that, if you end up on a bad team. Lol.

      @Fidel & @KingGuy420 : Thanks for all the information. I think I just might dive into the game in the near future despite a few tricky trophies here and there. If I don't end up getting them all then so be it.

       

      @Elvick_ : Thanks for sharing. I hate it too when a game gets changed in such a way that eradicates the core aspect of what made it great and unique in order to try and be like other games common to it. I'm probably going to still try the game out though as it looks to me, to be at least worth a try.

  5. Streaming some more Dark Souls 2 SotFS! Just collecting what I can before I start NG+. https://www.twitch.tv/shinobi73

  6. [Dark Soul 2 SotFS] I just made a HUGE mistake. I just pulled the lever that freed Royal Sorcerer Navlaan! This just utterly sucks. I don't have a back up save or anything. I tried quitting the application right after I did it, but that didn't work. 

     

    looks like I will have more work cut out for me on my second playthrough. 🙃

      Did a little searching and it seems if you did what I did, it will prevent him from invading you. Hopefully, that means he won't go around killing everyone else as well....

      That guy there was definitely suspicious, so I opted to leave him there. I actually knew beforehand about the lever that released him because my wife warned me about him as she released him by accident as well.

       

      If you killed him right on the spot after releasing him, you shouldn't have any problems.

      @Honor_Hand: I didn't see the guy beforehand. I thought it was a random lever and was curious about what it was going to do. If only I went right before going left; or better yet, before pulling the lever, decide to check the other side before doing anything drastic. If I saw him I would have clued in and left the lever alone.

       

      It doesn't matter, what's done is done. Luckily, it does seem thus far that I haven't suffered any other consequences besides losing out on the Pyromancy and Sorcery he offers.

  7. [Dark Souls 2 SotFS] I just discovered that the giant statue in Majula, when examined, tells you the worldwide death count in the game.

     

    If anybody was wondering, the number is currently at 217,491,280 deaths and going up constantly.

     

    I'm honestly surprised it isn't higher lol.

      yeahhh, such a good game :D for we will die and learn and get stronger

       

    2. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      lmao That's the first thing I thought as well when I checked the statue for the first time.

  8. Streaming some Dark Souls SotFS! I'm just exploring and seeing what's up. Probably will end up dying a lot but that's expected.

  9. [Dark Souls 2 SotFS] As expected; I'm a little lost starting off. Does anybody have any tips for what I should be focusing on early NG? I've adventured off into the Forest of Fallen Giants after struggling to get through Heide's Tower of Flame.

     

    Any advice would be great. So far, my stats have been geared towards a high Dexterity damage build if anybody is curious.

      You might want to go back to Heide's Tower for the Ring of Binding. You don't have to clear the area, but the treasure chest is right before the boss. As you most likely noticed, your max health lowers the more you die. It can't go any lower than 50%. The ring of binding makes it so it can't go below 80%. 

       

      I found the rapier to be a very useful weapon early on. It scales with dex, so it will work well with your build. The rapier can be purchased from the blacksmith in Majula, but you'll have to unlock it first. If you progress through the Forest of Fallen Giants, you'll eventually come to a bonfire with a merchant right next to it. You can buy the key to the blacksmith there.

       

      One other thing: ADP is very important. I can't stress this enough. It may seem useless, but it raises your agility(AGL). Agility directly affects how many invincibility frames you get when rolling. I ignored the ADP stat early on and got my ass kicked.

      For whatever reason, I have a terrible memory of this game even though I got the platinum on it not too long ago.  Probably because it wasn't as good as the previous games in my opinion.

       

      What I do remember, however, is that I grinded the enemies in the Heide's Tower of Flame area before proceeding to the other areas early in the game. I found out that they were very easy to kill for me and gave a decent amount of souls for the time. Out of the bosses in this area, I went with the Dragonlord first as I found that one to be the easiest. Also, there is something that needs to be done in that area in order to make the arena in which you fight him larger. Otherwise, you are going to end up being thrown into the water almost everytime. The Old Dragonslayer boss is kinda difficult early in the game unless you have a good shield or a build that favors stamina. You could also try rolling around a lot if you favor speed instead.

       

      No-man's Wharf is the area that I went to afterward. Here, you will want the enemies to NOT gang up on you, especially some creeps that cause bleeding. The humanoid enemies are easier but watch out with the archers on the distance. Now, the creeps are problematic, try taking them out one by one and don't let them build your bleed meter up. I think they were weak to fire so a torch or anything that deals fire damage should be pretty useful. Also, there is something you fire upon this area in order to provide a better illumination of your surroundings. After you do this, the creeps will start spawning or moving to areas that are still dark everytime you go back to this area, which would make traversing it a lot faster and safer.

       

      And that's it, good luck... lol look at the paragraph I wrote, this was supposed to be a quick tip lmao xD

      @LuciaRosethorn: That makes sense lol. I'll get the hang of it, I went into this knowing what I was getting myself into. 

       

      @Cave_Johnson_: Ah yes the Ring of Binding, will go back for that. I quickly noticed that about the health bar. At first, I had no idea what was happening but the internet cleared that up for me. Just one more thing to worry about! I just unlocked the shop before I headed out to work. I heard the mace is great too. I'll probably buy both just to compare, but I know the Rapiers are geared towards my build. Thanks for the ADP mention!

       

      @Honor_Hand : I'll probably be grinding the enemies in the Heide's Tower of Flame area too. The boss there kicked my ass when I fought him. I only fought him once though. I have the arena as big as it can be so I don't have to worry about falling in the water. I'll defeat him eventually.

       

      I'll keep all that in mind when I get to No-man's Wharf! Thanks for the helpful paragraph. ;) 

       

      Thanks for the responses everyone!

  10. [Homefront: The Revolution] I'll admit it; I didn't expect the online in this game to be as dead as it is. I at least thought I would be able to get all the online trophies done.

     

    All I have left is a couple more team citations, complete a mission on hard and the two skill tree related ones. 

     

    I'll try occasionally at different points and time and see. My best bet might be to try the weekends.

  11. According to the guide on the .org website, spells and the such from the DLC portion of the game are required for their respective trophies. Part of the introduction to the guide reads as follows: "On first glance, you will see the trophies are identical to the PS3 version, however the Hex/Miracles/Sorcery/Pyromancy from the DLC are now required for each respective trophy."
  12. [DMC4 SE] Just finished the game on easy...

     

    I'm not going to try and get the platinum after that. The playthrough told me a lot about the game. It just isn't for me. It has things I like about it but there are things that I just absolutely hate.

     

    The thing that bothers me the most is the lack of basic defensive options. I must say that this is the first hack'n'slash I've played where simply jumping was my greatest defensive option.

     

    I have watched videos demonstrating what is possible both offensively and defensively if a person chooses to delve much deeper into this game than I. That's why I said basic defensive options. But I don't have the patience, skill, and willingness to play this game for hours upon hours attempting to master the combat in this game.

      I totally get that! Happened to me with demon's souls, burnout paradise, and Bayonetta

       

      And that's good to hear an opinion that isn't based on that it sucks solely because it's not like the original DMC, etc,etc. Been checking the series out for a while now especially since it goes on sale like every week but I pass it every time because of intuition lol.

      ^nice enjoy! I tried it on the ps3 for a solid 8 hrs and it was just not for me. Too much frustration to enjoy :/ along with risking losing 2 hrs or so of progress because I couldn't retrieve my souls that I've been saving up.

  13. I knew. I was just playing along. But thanks for pointing it out lol.
  14. Glad to see you're really liking the game! 👍
  15. May the 4th be with you all ;)
