Baker’s Final March

Good job! I've been tempted to do one of these for a while now too but never got around to it! Good luck and your goal and hopefully you'll decide to continue past 400 if it's still fun for you!

Followed you since I got on this website and always looked up on your profile, so I've hit that follow button immediately! Goodluck on the upcoming platinums :platinum:

"... some other game called Final Fantasy VII." 😂

 

Nice to see that you started your own checklist! Didn't know that you were planing to retire at 400... I can understand why, but I also hope that you'll stay around even if you do retire, or that you notice that you are still enjoying this and keep going :)

 

Two quick questions.. Are you planing on writing something small here about the games as you finish them?

 

And.. I know that you might skip Jotun cause it looks too slow for your taste. And Strafe gotta be a pretty buggy game. But what are the reasons that make you hesitate to start 10SNX?

 

 

Also.. gotta be such a massive pain in the ass to do these posts with the PS4 😂

@Arcesius Yes I’m using this thread to write some more in depth reviews instead of the short ones I usually do in status updates. Plus if I’m playing something difficult I could write about me suffering through the game 😁.

 

As for Jotun. Yes, the battle system is too slow for me, but I might give it another try.

 

I expected to like 10 Second Ninja X, but I didn’t... Although I only played it for around 10 min.

 

And Strafe... The game that’s known for terrible framerate drops. But I can handle that. The thing is the levels are randomly generated and as you might know, I’m not a big fan of that 😁. But it’s a FPS and I love the platinum image which I want to put in my trophy cabinet. So we’ll see...

 

And retiring at 400 games has been in my mind for a few years now. So that’s the plan. On the other hand, I won’t be surprised if I continue...

 

@Deluziion90 Thanks man. I appreciate it.

You must be losing your mind now then, given you are exactly at 333 games completed 😂

 

Great seeing you starting your checklist, I'll be checking it out from time to time in the future for sure.

I... feel... used... :(  

 

Seriously though, I gladly tested it out for you :P Would have played the game even if save-scumming would not have been possible. As you correctly mentioned, only the last chapter could have been problematic after practicing the other ones for a bit. I feel like games like this one are easier to play on PC since you can move the aiming-cursor to where you want to shoot. 

 

In any case, congrats on finishing the game! Was a fun, albeit short experience :)

You might notice there are quite a few posts missing here. After a post got deleted, which I still think was unnecessary, the thread derailed a bit. So after discussing this with @Beyondthegrave07 in PMs I thought it was best to delete all the nonsense and try to keep this checklist drama free.

 

Now what I really wanted to post this morning was a poll. But I still can’t figure out how to do it 😅. I’ve decided to put some time in my backlog so the poll was going to ask which game to play next. I’ve been thinking about it for the last 4 days but I can’t decide. Continue with Devil May Cry 5 or start Shadow Warrior?

I mean... Shadow Warrior seems to be a very fun game... So maybe go through the tedium of however many playthroughs you still have left in DMC5 first, enjoy SW afterwards! 😅

 

You know that I'd finish a started game first in any case 😏

Devil may cry 5 obviously, because its best to finish what you hate ASAP xD

 

Nah, seriously though, go with Shadow Warrior. Take your time with DMC5 because it only gets worse from where you are 😂

DMC5 = 2eZ.

 

On that note am I the only one who found DMC4SE the harder plat?

Not at all, DMC4 IS the harder platinum by far.

I just know that Baker suffers greatly every time he has to do ANOTHER playthrough xD it's not about the skills, it's about the patience to get through all that.

True that, the both games start hard but by if your hell bent on getting the plats you won’t even need to worry about being good enough to earn them.

 

I mean you gotta beat each game what like 5times. 
Who can’t get good in 5 playtrus is beyond me.

Tho it would suck so bad if you ended up hating the games cus their very heavy on playtime.

 

Oh and Shadow Warrior looks hard n fun so maybe you should go play that one and try doing a mission par day on DMC5 to make the grind less grindy?

I’m playing DMC 5 and after one mission I’m already tired of it 😂.
 

My biggest issue is I’m not getting any S Ranks. I’m playing on Devil Hunter and I’m getting in the 4500 points range all the time. I haven’t delved into the combat system nor am I abusing the CP exploit but I expected to get at least a few S Ranks along the way. I did get quite a few on Human.

 

I’m thinking of buying the Super Costume pack and blasting through all difficulty modes. And then tackle one mission at a time on every difficulty going for S Ranks. In the end it will take me more time to finish this game but I will have more fun going for it.

 

Edit: Yeah bought it. Current plan is to run through DH, SOS, DMD, HOH & BP with the Super Costumes and then taking another break before the real challenge begins.

[Devil May Cry 5]

Well my plan worked as anticipated. I’ve run through all the difficulties (except HAH) with the Super Costumes. And that was actually a lot of fun. But now I have D Ranks on all the missions on all difficulties (except Human). 
 

I’ve now done 6 playthroughs of this game and I’m looking at 4.5 more, if I can S Rank everything first try. Which ofcourse I won’t because I’m terrible at these types of games. I’m probably looking at another 10+ playthroughs. And that’s a very low estimate… 😭
 

This is probably the worst trophy list I’ve ever done. I can’t remember DMC4 being this bad. I also have the feeling DMC5 playthroughs take a lot longer to complete.
 

I want to take a break from the game again, but now that I’m used to the controls again and know how to quickly run through the missions I guess it’s better to stick with it until it’s done.

 

Edit:

Well that’s 1 mission done, 20 to go. But this already took me quite some time, also thanks to those awful loading times, and attempts. It seems even though I don’t get hit and finish the fight with S-SSS rank I don’t get enough style points to get a S Rank. @Copanele I need some tips here 😅. What am I doing wrong?

Ok wooshing in to the rescue!

 

The main problem at dmc5 is that there are some missions with a faulty ranking system. These are mission 5,8,10,12 and 18. There are some "tips" to get guaranteed S rank:

- no damage is required

- try to stay in SSS style mode as much as possible, eventually drag it out with taunts and shitty attacks, but Don't overdo it. S or SS won't do. The quicker you finish a fight the less points you get (but not always thanks capcom wtf) 

Avoid fights that won't give you guaranteed SSS. For instance at the very start of M8, you will have 2 random scythe dudes. Just avoid them and be on your way instead of fighting them, because you will get a measly S against them and that fucks up your final score. 

- m10 is the worst mission by far. If you take damage you can quit app and reload to resume yourself from the last checkpoint. This doesn't work in Hell&hell mode

- for Nero, punchline is the best arm, to combo a monster in the distance while you combo another. 

- for Dante, do as many different rebellion into balrog/king cerberus combos as you can, if you fight a fury just nuke it with meteors or SDT it (this one sounds good XD). 

- As V, hug the wall and mash. 

 

Other than that... You gotta learn the level layout. I know the game is a pain but once you learn the level properly it gets easier. 

Except Hell and hell, screw that mode! 

 

Hope that helps abit.

Got a few more questions.

 

What’s the best way to quickly build up style as Nero? Right now I’m going into fights with charged guns and max exceed, do some sword  and grab combo’s, turn on devil trigger, rinse and repeat. But I usually only go to SS rank like this, and then it drops down to A rank very quickly…

 

I’m planning to do no hit runs, is that enough to get guaranteed S Ranks even though your style points are low? That way I could use some safe strategies, like running around with charged guns…

 

For BP: Does Nero have some OP attack I can spam to quickly rush through it? I’ve done Dante and V already. I find it weird less people have completed BP than have the platinum.

For Nero:

Throw your punchline. 

Basic combo-launch-basic air combo-air taunt-forward lunge attack - 2hits,delay,mash-launch-2 hits mid air, short delay, hit-grab. Also mash that exceed maybe you get a timing and rev your sword. 

While you do that, charge up your gun for charged shot lvl 3 that does absurd amounts of damage and really fires up your style. Better map your gun to L1 or R1 or whatever feels comfortable for you. 

 

Sorry if it sounds like chinese 😂😂it's the best way to describe it. 

 

No hit runs have like 95%chances of giving you S rank, BUT if you have a shitty overall combo(like A), you wont get S

 

For bloody palace, conserve your DT and go ham through the early stages to build up your time, then a combo of ragtime+buster arm to get rid of the late nasty enemies. Charged Buster Arm demolishes all enemies and most bosses'health. 

 

Now i wanna reinstall dmc5 xD

Ok xD

Attack your enemy, launch him and attack him mid-air. Every time you do this add one extra button, whatever you want (taunt, gun, down slash, buster grab) 

 

That's the easiest stuff you can do as Nero for SSS.

AI: The Somnium Files

 

Enjoyment: 8/10

Difficulty: -

Playtime: 25 hours

 

Let’s go back 2.5 years. Casually watching some Youtube video’s I came across a random top 10 best stories in videogames video. The games picked out were games with amazing stories but there was one game I’d never heard of before: 999. A quick google search later I came to learn it was part of the Zero Escape trilogy, which are Visual Novels. So I checked the Ps Store and all three games were on sale, which was a fortunate coincidence. I asked for some opinions here on the forums and everyone basically said the same thing: The games are great, get them! And so I did.

 

I did not expect to like it much, because at that point I looked at VNs as games that were only played by stackers that want to climb the leaderboards, but I was wrong. The games were amazing, and the best part was it actually had quite a lot of gameplay in it. So I went looking for more of these types of games and not before long I was playing Danganronpa, Phoenix Wright and recently 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim. Amazing games!

 

I also tried a VN that was just reading by pressing X: Chaos;Child. That was definitely too boring for me, I skipped through the entire game.

 

On to AI: The Somnium Files. Without spoiling anything you’re playing as Date, a police detective that has an AI left eye called Aiba and because of a Psync machine is able to go into people’s minds/dreams trying to solve the murders he is investigating. The gameplay is in the dreams where you need to break ‘mental locks’ to continue by solving puzzles, which is heavily inspired by Zero Escape & Phoenix Wright.
 

The story is dark with loads of murders, many cliffhangers, and was done very well. But one thing stood out for me: The humor. There also is a lot of humor in this game, they’re all basically sex jokes, but it had me laugh out loud multiple times. 
 

Pornoooo Mag!!!
