I don’t want dlc to count for my percentage

At least these pages show what has DLC if that’s the concern..

Obvious, front page feature I know, but is it being overlooked? Though I suppose it could help further to have some solid distinction between what DLC you have to find and purchase, and what you won’t find because it’s actually a free update ^^

 

As a more direct response to OP, and in reference to the unfortunate DLC trophy in Hyperballoid HD (PS3)...

“Welcome to the big-ass club.”

LA Noire was probably one of my favorite games that I considered underrated. I actually watched the television show Mad Men because a lot of the actors had a role in LA Noire. Great TV show, and interesting take on 1960s era business.

 

There were some desks Cole was in according to his story but there's only a few mentions in-game probably due to time constraints and limited budget. Team Bondi was actually suffering when they developed LA Noire. Rockstar Games was the publisher, and from what I remember reading they had to step in and help with the project. Team Bondi went out of business shortly after LA Noire released.

 

The PS4 version has some additional trophies but they are merely collectibles. If someone was able to add in brand new trophies and collectibles several years after the game came out, surely they could of added trophies for The Consol's Car DLC.

 

I'd like a spiritual successor of some sort, but since Rockstar is so into shark cards from GTA Online these days, I doubt they'll ever publish another detective game.

 

LA Noire is 10 years old now. It's a pattern that's been around a long time. Yes, there is Blood & Wine from the Witcher 3, there is The Old Hunters from Bloodborne. Those tend to be the exception, rather than the norm, which is to cut a little content from what could of been in the main game and charge additional money for it.


I didn’t know that history about Team Bondi. That’s a damn shame, because L.A. Noire was such a unique and interesting little game. It would have been great to see some kind of sequel or expansion on the ideas of the first game.

 

And yes, I’ve seen Mad Men and it’s a great show. I’m a huge fan of period pieces or anything historical, and love getting wrapped up in the portrayal of older times. L.A. Noire did a fantastic job bringing that post-war, 1940s/50s Los Angeles scene to life. The clothes, cars, music, and stereotypes of people from the era - police, businessmen, and families, housewives etc. - was spot on and made the game super immersive. I would often get swept up in the scenery and just enjoy driving around the city and soaking it all in.

 

I’m glad there’s a PS4 version as I would love to play it all over again in a couple years.

Slow day at work so had to read this for entertainment!

 

How about if we just ditch all the trophies and there wouldn't be a problem with Devs, DLCs or cash grabs? :awesome:  We could throw in the rep system, too!

All and any dlcs being free or not are "unethical" imo cause it adds to ur overall completion % regardless you wanted it or not. Yea I may just NOT want it, why add it to my trophies? I never bought it so why add it ?

 

Since few games started to "intentionally" drop ur percentage bellow 50% with the addition of 10+ dlcs so when you look at it you see you haven't even done half of the game even though you've gotten platinum but it's at 47, 48 or 49%. Heck I don't remember what game on ps3 that I gotten 39% or so when I got the plat, maybe L.A. Noire. Don't know how much it would be for these "most rewarding" games like Driveclub and Payday 2.

 

But I'll give you two examples: one regarding Crash 1, and this one free dlc ruind the 100% profile my friend was maintaining for years and ended any hope for him to "complete" that game cause he loves Crash so much and was waiting for it for years n he added it to his game list right away, then he was very mad and upset when he knew about the addition of "relics" and the trophies require getting gold relic on every level but he was trying for weeks to beat that bridge level and when the dlc came, it destroyed any hopes for hime, he was completely broken yeah for real. He gave up on trophy hunting after that and now he plays stupid teamdeath matches online over n over again.

 

The other example is this new "free" update for Genshin Impact which require you to complete floor 12 of the spiral abyss. Well you see this F2P game and this trophy require that you play for years to get the best characters or to pay huge amount of $ to get the 100%. It's really unpleasant and unethical, why ruin my % like this ?


Your friend quit trophy hunting, and a 100% profile he had for years, because they released Stormy Ascent in Crash 1?

Like for real?

 

I must be missing something.

not perse if he wouldnt wanna  get the dlc its a valid reason also maybe he couldnt get it

 

if your goal is 100% and you cant or wont keep it for whatever reason there is no point to continue on I am probatly stopping myself thanks to starting a game I cnat complete. I wnated to get 96 completion by the end of the year that has become impossible now

 

so  to me there is probatly not much of a reason left to hunt either so I fully understand where he is comming from

Yes, Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire were both great. Personally I preferred Mad Men since a lot of Boardwalk Empire contained much violence and killing, which was understandable because it was the era of Prohibition.

 

The PS4 version changed up the options in that there is no longer 'Doubt' or 'Lie' when making dialogue choices. It has additional collectibles but other than that it's practically the same game. Mafia II: Definitive Edition added more Wanted posters but like with LA Noire it's basically the same game as the original, albeit with 1080p/4K support. I don't know if the remasters are 60 FPS.

Oh man, Boardwalk Empire might very well be my favourite show of all time. It is taking all my restraint right now not to derail this thread with a novella about how great that show is. And yes it’s violent, but that also means it has some of the most epic death scenes HBO has ever done. It even gives GoT a run for its money in that regard.

The only thing I'm kind of annoyed by is that you can't group your 100% games and platinums without DLC games together with the same filter on people's trophy pages. I swear that used to be a feature on this site but at some point it disappeared.

It's a really annoying thing, especially for games that require you to purchase the DLC which i will never do.

 

If it's just added trophies for free i can let that go as you can always go back to retry it.
