  1. I banished them (and thus didn't fight NKG), but he still showed up in the Hallownest Pantheon for me. However, Zote did not show up for me in the Pantheon, since I left him to die in the main game.
  2. That's not what happens. The earliest timestamp is the one you get. You can't get a timestamp overwritten with a later one. Anyway, people are making this way more complicated than it is. Yes, this is allowed. Trophy teams are allowed. You can have 85 different people all playing on 85 different consoles on your account, and that's not against the leaderboard rules here (though it will likely get you a stink-eye from most trophy hunters). The top two people on the leaderboard (Hakoom and RoughDawg4) each have timestamps showing that they earned trophies on multiple consoles simultaneously (Hakoom has even posted a video of himself earning trophies on *four* consoles at the same time). It's allowed. Period. From the leaderboard rules:
  3. So... does anyone have any tips for the DLC? I had no trouble with anything in the base game, but the DLC seems absolutely brutal by comparison. I've tried the first level several times both solo and with a partner, and still haven't managed to get even higher than 1 star on it.
  4. According to Team Cherry on Twitter, it should unlock if you return to the lantern (in the Howling Cliffs).
  5. You can't get all miracles before reaching Anor Londo, since some of the miracles are only available in Anor Londo/Duke's Archives, and they can't be dropped by other players.
  6. Patch 1.02 released today, which (according to the patch notes) fixes this trophy.
  7. Yeah, WKC2 is pretty clearly save file usage too. The game checks for unlocking of the guild rank trophies every time your guild levels up (and possibly every time you complete a quest), so the OP here is essentially claiming that it bugged out at least 13 times when he reached GL17, and GL18, and GL19, and... and GL29, but then both trophies popped together when they hit GL30.
  8. He's a guy who works for EA. I'm not going to post his real-life name and contact info, but it's not hard to find him via Google.
  9. MMDE, you know how the game works better than this. How many lizards he gets in each playthrough is almost completely irrelevant since (a) you don't need to do a full playthrough to boost your health/stamina (you can fight the first one or two colossi in NG+ and then just start NG+ again, and it keeps your new extra HP and stamina), and (b) lizards contribute hardly anything to your stamina. The fastest way to max stamina is to kill colossi, not hunting lizards. He played through the game once. Then he grinding out colossi for a while (over a day, according to his timestamps), probably without getting any lizards whatsoever. Then he did a second full (or almost full) playthrough to get the lizards, finish maxing his stamina, then get fruit, then max his health. This is a completely normal thing to do with speedrunning the platinum -- what part of his timestamps does not agree with it, in your opinion? But besides that, what is even the relevance of this anymore? It has been pointed out repeatedly that these timestamps are possible. Why does it matter that they're unlikely (in your opinion, not in mine)? Shall we start flagging people for not playing like MMDE does?
  10. Yes. Also, I'd like to point out that there's absolutely nothing weird or unusual about any of this. The guy has exactly the trophy order that should be expected from someone speed-running the platinum. There's no way to earn the trophy for eating all fruit until *after* you max out your stamina (or at least really close to maxing out stamina, since you need mega stamina to climb up to the sanctuary), so there's no point in wasting time getting fruit until after maxing stamina. The fastest way to max out stamina is by killing collosi. After he maxxed stamina, he then got fruit to max health. Not only is it possible, it's *expected*.
  11. Kheapathic saying (about the PS3 version) that it would take 4 to 5 playthroughs to max health just from killing colossi: https://www.playstationtrophies.org/forum/ico-collection-shadow-of-the-colossus/223297-can-i-gain-max-hp-just-defeating-colossus.html PSNProfile of the guy he was talking to about it in that thread, who also got the Max HP trophy after the Max stamina trophy: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/1034-shadow-of-the-colossus/Airwic_?order=date
  12. I don't understand. The links I provided were literally to people who had already tested exactly this and given the answers, which show that it is possible. Are those answers not acceptable because they're for the PS4 version? Are we suggesting that health and stamina work differently on PS4 than on PS3 despite no one on the internet ever noticing this? Why would it be worth someone's time to play through this game on PS3 5+ times just to re-verify a fact about it that was already demonstrated on PS4 and there's no legitimate reason to disbelieve? On PS2/PS3, it was noted if lizard tails give 1 point of stamina then killing a colossus gives about 7.5 points, and you need somewhere around 570 points to max out your stamina. That agrees exactly with the numbers for PS4 that were posted above. Health numbers are harder to find since fruit give so much health that no one cared enough to try to figure out the formula.
  13. They didn't change anything about how stamina or health work between PS3 and PS4 (they changed the stamina UI, but not the underlying calculations or mechanics).
  14. This is 100% possible and the flag should be lifted. If you ignore fruit (and even if you ignore lizards too) and focus only on killing colossi, stamina will max out first. I can post a bunch more profiles with this (legitimate) trophy pattern if it's needed, but I'd rather not draw attention to unrelated third parties. It takes 118 colossi to max out health (assuming you eat no fruit). It takes 76 colossi to max out stamina (assuming you eat no lizard tails). The reason that people usually max out health first is that fruits give a lot of health, whereas lizard tails only give a little stamina.
  15. Same here. I typically wait for a year or so to pass before getting a AAA game these days specifically because I hate being nickel-and-dimed for DLC, and I hate returning to games to clean up 100%s that I already earned. If they're going to continue releasing DLC after the "Complete" edition and said they were done then they can screw right off -- there are lots of other games I can play.
