  1. If I can't plat it then most likely I'll skip it, unless it's one of the old games in a franchise I already own. For instance Motorstorm Pacific Rift and Resistance 2. I missed out on the online trophies but I can still plat Apocalypse, RC and Resistance 3 so I wouldn't mind playing those older games on a dummy account just for their gameplay. Even some games with no trophy support I would love to play, like Heavenly Sword and Ninja Gaiden Sigma. But to your point, it's true, if I can't Plat it then I won't really touch it..... I'm looking at you NFS The Run.....frickin ruining my NFS collection
  2. I'm planning on getting this game and basically boosting the online..... because that's what trophy hunters do for the multitude of games we play.....we aren't fucking "lifers" who keep playing only 1 game's mp till we're winning tdms in our sleep. I honestly take a little offence to this, and I'm not a cranky person at all. It's ironic how you try to justify your behaviour as a RANDOM on a trophy tracking website.....where most if not all of us actually despise randoms! My thoughts are the same as Potent_Delusions' on this one. It's hard enough coinciding your play times with new people for every other game and then to have randoms come in and muck about, waste a whole bunch of your time and cause frustration is something I don't stand for. I personally am courteous of other people's sessions too. If I join a game and I don't see my mates then I'm not staying in there to fuck up their session. And if I'm absolutely new to the game, just testing the mp on my dummy account then I'll literally just hover around people doing nothing. Even asking a couple of guys if they have free slots for me because I haven't got my own squad yet. But I will absolutely NOT act like the random I myself hate. So just don't.
  3. On paper yes, not so bad, but 3000 xp is if you play a long drawn out match executing multiple moves and your finisher and pinning the opponent properly. The proper boosting method was to pick a handicap match with CM Punk (WWE Champ at the time) against 3 people and the op hit you (Punk) with a steel chair and immediately get disqualified.....that ends the match quickly but gave about a 1000 xp it's more like 1316 matches. And that's just for ONE PERSON. What about your boosting partner? So double that shit! 438 x 2 is 876 which is crazy anyway but 1316 x 2 = 2632 matches...... yeah that's why I said soul crushing. I assure you, I've done boosts like Killzone 2, Uncharted 2, Crysis 2, Bioshock 2 and MK9, all long, hard and complicated.....but even they don't come close to the horror of WWE 13. Maybe Resistance 2 and Uncharted 3 would be contenders but servers are down and I missed them. Maybe Far Cry 2 if I muster up the will to start it.....
  4. I haven't really started on any of the truly horrid games I currently own except for one, so most of my list will be the bottom of the barrel handouts from PS+. Dishonorable mention: Magus - Truly a shitty game. Finished it in 14 hours over 2 sessions, it took that long because of the grind for obtaining 500 items. The game is a pushover because it makes you OP as all hell very early on, certain combination of spells make you unbeatable and the level increase is meteoric. It atleast had semi-decent controls so it's not on my list. 5. WWE '13 - Not gonna lie I used to be a diehard wrestling fan and this game had the best campaign among WWE games, the Attitude Era mode! It was the best period in WWE history which was the reason I bought it. But to plat the game I had to suffer through the most terrible online boost in my entire life. I've boosted multiple hard games but now everything else seems doable when compared to this. THREE WHOLE MONTHS of grinding with 1 partner AND with the constant threat of your stats getting reset . If you check the hardest online trophy in the game I am the second last achiever (my boosting partner has his account set to private) of King of the World before server shutdown. Truly a soul crushing component of the plat for an otherwise excellent game. 4. Claire - Yeah this game was mechanically OK but holy crap was it boring. 2 runs for the plat was the most that I could put up with and even with the guide giving specific instructions this was not fun to play. 3. XBlaze Lost: Memories - Oh boy we enter the visual novel genre and this one for me was the first of its kind. Truly boring gameplay, meaningless story, amateurish dialogue which I skipped through and completely unmemorable events. I really only played it for the plat. 2. Amnesia: Memories - Another visual novel and this one was even worse somehow because gameplay was nonexistant. The story was typical drab anime crap, I just used the well made guide to skip through the entirety of it to get my plat. I actually plat Code: Realize - Guardian of Rebirth as well and by comparison Code's story was much MUCH more interesting. With characters pulled from history and english novels and set in a steam punk anime world I actually read through the entire stories for 4 out of the 5 male characters.....Amnesia also had 5 males chars....or was it 6? Ah who cares it was dogshit. 1. Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition - Holy shit this game was an absolute CHORE to complete. 7 levels each with it's own subareas of fighting the same bloody enemies with the same lame weapons while listening to Duke's retarded one liners. I'm a 90's kid, I know my cheesy one liners watching Arnold and Stallone movies....but Duke was especially bad and all I wanted was to get it over with. Not to mention having to get 500 online kills which didn't connect to a lot of the boosters who joined my group. And to top it all off there's no plat for the PS3, what a joke. I'm dreading the day I have to play the PS4 version to stack this least I'll get a plat out of it. Give me DOOM over this anyday. Since I own cult classic garbage like Damnation, Terminator Salvation, Duke Nukem Forever and Last Rebellion this list might change depending on my experience with those games....but honestly I doubt it, since at least they are not shitty genres unlike the top 4....
  5. Just to let you know this is working fine again. I just got my trophy by sending 6 challenges to my dummy account and once I was higher in 5 of them when they expired Unbeatable popped.
  6. Yo homie!Β I've sent a friend request to ya!Β Did ya see that.

  7. I just wanna clear up that even if you lost the match where you ranked up to 1st dan (and trophy didn't pop) you can still get it with the same character. BUT you do have to win a ranked match with said character. Upon doing that the trophy will pop so no, there is no way this is unobtainable UNLESS you simply cannot win a match lol. In which case I'd suggest picking a new character or a better character to team up with your char who already got 1st dan so as to help him win that 1 match.
  8. I'm just here to congratulate you on that Plat Speedrun :D. 1 day 14 hours is absurd for this game, you lead the closest people in 2nd and 3rd place by over a full DAY 😲 Also, getting the Elite trophy from MGSV as your 1337th trophy was a really nice touch lol truly LEET. I never actually thought of that back then, personally I just wanted to have MGRR's plat Revengeance on there somewhere so I made that my 1337th trophy 😝
  9. Apparently you haven't checked properly enough. Don't mean to sound condescending or anything but I'm only on Floor 3 and I found it. I already understood that each field/floor has exactly 3 cat dolls. Just goes to show how piss easy these are to find. Tip #24 "Izayoi" is on Floor 3, right in the middle of the long rectangular map. Happy hunting.
  10. Thank you so much for this dude, your solution worked like a charm! πŸ˜† I literally just got my Australia trophy, skipped through the remaining 3 rally series to win the WRC and came on here to comment. The only advice I can add from my side is when Matto says "idle" back onto the grassy areas, he means as slow as freakin possible. I literally just tapped my R2 button so my speed did not go above 15-20 kmph while I moved towards the grass. I shit you not, when I tried for this on my WRC-2 run I got within a few meters of the finish line through the grass, I picked up speed then let go of the gas, moved on to the tarmac and this piece of shit game froze when I was just 2 feet away from the finish line!! I almost threw my controller at the screen 😑 I was so heartbroken, even my best attempt hadn't worked. So I just gave up and lost the Australia rally and thought to try this in WRC hoping I'd get a different set of races or weather conditions...... But nope, I got the exact same! So it was really important that my latest attempt be successful. This time what I did was reach the sides of the finish line while still on the grass, went beyond it so as to let the game spawn me back on the road automatically, then I just tapped R2 twice to idle over the finish line and finish the race. Anything above 20 kmph on the tarmac WILL freeze the game, just cross it as slow as possible as you HAVE to be on the tarmac to go through the finish line. I restarted the race, then quit the game through the XMB instead of getting to the freeze point again. Then when I reloaded the game it started me at SS3. Upon winning that I was still 1 second ahead of the others! Lol it worked wonderfully as I went on to win the series. Considering the race is quite long and the game is boring I can only imagine how much time it would have taken for you to test all this out, Matto_lsi. That's why I had to take the time to thank you for this bro, I really appreciate it! πŸ‘
  11. Exactly what I mentioned in my very first post. "And now again the sales which ARE available are actually cross-buy titles with PS4 & Vita. Namely stuff like Resogun, Sound Shapes, Flower, Hohokum, Unfinished Swan and the like. The only reason they show up when filtering with the PS3 is because they are cross-buy." That's what I mean, there was nothing after the Halloween sale which is when it struck me as odd. Normally once a sale cycles out on Tuesday, new sales are set up on Wednesday. There was NOTHING for the PS3 though, no games no DLC. Then came Black Friday but again there were less than 20 games on sale stuff like Mafia 2 and Tomb Raider. Ok that's fine but now again there is technically nothing specifically for the PS3, because the only reason we can see games like Sound Shapes and Resogun is due to them being cross-buy. I really want to get a PS4 Pro.... But unfortunately I live in India where even though the Pro is officially announced it's not being sold by any retail outlet. It's only possible to buy a pro from the black markets or from online retailers who get their stock from UAE or Singapore. Sony does not provide Warranty for out of India products which means any problems with the product within a year and that thing becomes a fucking brick. Now while I am a hardcore gamer I am not so stupid as to hastily get a product without warranty..... Plus that gives me enough time to reduce my huge backlog of PS3 games before I gradually move towards the PS4.
  12. I was an idiot and didn't actually own any of the LoS games at the time so I didn't buy 'em 😒 Only recently did I get them and now I'm on the lookout for the dlc. It's not surprising to me that support for the PS3 will go down one day.... but I was hoping Sony could atleast make an official announcement regarding that. Ya know, rather than just quietly stopping the PS3 deals like this. It's hard to be optimistic about this. PS3 didn't get anything since November, even though it's winter. The current deals will cycle out on the 23rd tho so maybe come Christmas time we'll get some big deals for it. I will be piiisssed if we don't 😑
  13. Sony's PS exclusive deals are determined by Sony, but yes, I do think 3rd party deals are decided by the publishers. That's why we see themed sales like only for games from EA, 2K, Ubisoft etc. I'm just waiting for some obscure ones like from Konami. I don't know if the Metal Gear Rising dlc has ever gone up for sale, also I need to buy the Castlevania LoS series dlc. This is so stupid. Thankfully I got most of the games I wanted physically and don't have to worry about digital deals on games.... But they can't just stop dlc deals like this wtf.......
  14. Hey guys, I wasn't sure where I could ask this question so I just did here on the PS3 forum. I don't know if you guys have noticed or not but ever since November the games and dlc deals for the PS3 on the PS store have stopped. There came a handful of games in the Black Friday sale but the sale itself was inaccessible from the PS3 console. This is on the EU stores fyi. The only way to check it was via the store website. And now again the sales which ARE available are actually cross-buy titles with PS4 & Vita. Namely stuff like Resogun, Sound Shapes, Flower, Hohokum, Unfinished Swan and the like. The only reason they show up when filtering with the PS3 is because they are cross-buy. Where are the PS3 exclusive deals??!! Is this really the beginning of the end? First Sony stops the digital discounts for the PS3 (terrible move), then go the sales itself and a few years down the line all online support..... I had quite a bit of dlc I still needed to buy and I wait for new sales to buy them. I want to know what's happening, if any of you have any idea. Or have I just jumped the gun and asked a stupid question? I actually waited almost a month to ask this and now I'm scared this could be it for the deals on the PS3.
  15. The more I think about it, the more I feel like as long as 1 player has the UPnP Enabled, he can connect to any player regardless of their settings AND those other players can connect to him as well. It's sort of like the OR Logic gates. OR X Y Result 1 1 1 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 0 Unlike AND gates where only when both inputs are 1 will the result be 1, the OR gates will give a positive result when either inputs is 1. So basically, as long as 1 person has a freed up connection he can successfully connect (positive result of 1) to anyone else even if they have a firewalled connection. ONLY when both players have Firewalled connections (0 inputs) would it be impossible for them to connect. This is just based on logic though..... As I too like VirtualNight had huge problems connecting with people when there were a lot of active players. Only after enabling my UPnP could I connect with anyone....... But that doesn't explain how in some lobbies I saw 3-4 players (meaning the host had a free connection) but I still couldn't connect. It could quite honestly be the other way around and the connection works like the AND gates. X Y Result 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 Meaning that only when both players have a free connection (positive inputs) will they be able to connect. It could be much more complicated than that but yeah..... I can't really be bothered to test it now.
