  1. Been playing through the Xeno series before starting Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Have the digital version of Xenogears on PS3, Physicals of Xenoblade 1, 2, and 3 on Switch, and copies of Xenosaga 1 and 2. BUT WHY IS XENOSAGA 3 SO GOSH DARN EXPENSIVE EVERYWHERE I LOOK!!!! I mean, I get why, but I simply cannot justify shelling out $200 or more for a game, regardless of how great it is.

      Yeah I was trying to do that too. While Xenogears is my favorite JRPG, I gave up halfway through Xenosaga 2 because it was one of the worst ones I've ever played. As for the costs, just emulate it for free lmao.

      Always wish I could play the Xenosaga series, but only episode 2 ever released here in Europe for some reason. I'll forever wait for the day they (never) release a remastered trilogy...

      Low sales + late in the life release for the ps2. Plus it had a lenticular variant that is even pricier from what I remember 

  2. Just emailed PS about not being able to sign on to the Store on PS3. Hopefully they get back to me with a fix. If anyone has any advice in the meantime, I'll take it.

      It says the store is currently undergoing maintenance, but I think it worked! Thank you, Daiv!

  3. Sorry to revive a dead message board, but I didn't want to start a new one unnecessarily. I have been having the same problem of logging onto the PS Store just for it to instantly sign out of PSN the second it loads. The message says, "You were signed out of Playstation Network. Please sign in again." I have tried the various fixes on this board, deleting and reinstalling the store app, disabling media server, restarting wifi, unplugging the system, but nothing has worked so far. Any advice?
  4. Plat No. 48 - Ratchet and Clank (2016)

    It's been a while since I did a platinum run on a game. Almost a year now. However, getting in the mood for some nostalgia, I decided to bust out my PS3 and play the HD version of the OG Ratchet and Clank. After that playthrough I wanted to compare it to the remake that I had never finished. Honestly, the two are so different they are almost not worth comparing. The remake is prettier, but they changed the story a LOT to fit in with the movie (Which is also pretty good). While I will always prefer the original, I can't complain about the remake. It adds new stuff to the old and also outright changes some things for better and worse. Either way, it's worth a play if you like the series in general.

      I wished they continued on to re-imagine GC & UYA

  5. Plat No. 47 Final Fantasy X-2

    Finally, I have platinumed the first Final Fantasy I have ever played. At first, thought this one was going to be a lot harder than it was. It was cetainly MUCH less of a grind than the FFX was. Being the game that got me into RPGs in general, I'm glad to finally have the platinum and to have a chance to see the Perfect Ending for the first time.

      Sir_Bee I'm going case by case, I'll probably go for Lightning Returns and World of FF soon. As for FFXIV, I'm not sure. The rest simply depends on if I decide to by them or not.

      @acasto Well congratulations on the ones you have, and good luck with any you try to go for in the future :) 

  6. Plat No. 46 - Final Fantasy VII Remake

    This one was pretty tough for me. That Hard Mode was something else. But I did it! No idea which to tackle next.

  7. Just got Persona 5 Royal today an Im really digging it so far! However, I was wondering of there are any missable trophies? I heard the game was extremely long but at the same time I want to go in as blind as possible so Im avoiding checking trophy guides and such.

  8. Thanks that helps a ton!
  9. Just curious, for the bosses like Dark Inferno and the Limit Cut bosses, is it possible to fight them once, get their reward item then rematch them for a chance at a better score or is your first run all that counts?
  10. Double XP weekend on Fallout 76! Gonna try to hit at least level 70 before it's over.

  11. Well... Just realized I already missed out on the Fallout 76 plat. There's a trophy for reaching level 10, but I'm already almost at 11 and no trophy ever popped. Pretty sure the only way to go back and get it is to restart the game and I'm not about to do that. I also hear there a lot more buggy trophies in it. Might save myself the headache and just avoid grinding this one out. It's fun when I play with my friends but it definitely falls short of the other games in the series big time.

      At least it's level 10. It'll only take a few hours. There were plenty of horror stories of level 100 not popping!

  12. Ugh. So mad right now. Just started Fallout 76 and spent an hour modeling my character after Anakin. I got a Pipboy but then stuff came up and I had to sign off. Apparently there is no manual save but I read that signing out through the menu would keep your progress. Loaded up the game later and, even though it still has my character card, it plopped me right back into character creation. If there's any way to recover the character please let me know, though I doubt there is...

  13. Plat No. 45 - Megadimension Neptunia VII

    This was the first game in the Neptunia series I had picked up. After playing for a while, I realized I was missing a bunch of crucial story so I went back and played through the original three on PS3. After all that, I finally came back to VII to finish what I started. Man was this a good one. I loved how the game was split up into three parts but it all came together in the end. Also Uzume is an awesome character. Now that I've finished the four main entries, I'll probably go back and do some of the side games.

      Nice. Been slowly working through the main games too. It's fun except seems I always need to grind when there's a boss to be able to even connect a hit.

      Well done! 💯

  14. Plat No. 44 - Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony

    Finally rounded off the last of the Danganronpa trophylists. This is probably one of my favorite entries in the series. The writing for all of them are great but this one manages to hit all the right beats. At first, I found the ending to be dissatisfying, but after giving it some time then playing through the whole thing again, it really has grown on me. This series has some of the best writing and character development I've seen and I love all of it (even Ultra Despair Girls). While I hope that eventually something else will come out of this series, I don't think it would be too bad to end it here. Love these games and they will stick with me for years to come.

  15. Plat No. 43 - Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age

    Final Fantasy XII was one of the only two main numbered I never finished back when I first got it (excluding XI and XIV). I suppose I was too young to care about the more politically focused story and I struggled with the difficulty because I never used the Gambits well. Now, about a decade later, I finally saw it through to completion in the Zodiac Age. While not my absolute favorite in the series, it definitely ranks pretty high on my list. Now all that remains is FFVIII which I never finished due to the final battle being absolutely HEINOUS.

      Nice work! VIII was one I never beat, back in the day. I knocked both it and IX out on the PS3, though. Using walkthroughs, of course. :ninja:

      Well done! 💯
