Should I Just Restart?

17 posts in this topic

Currently, my game progression is at 65.6%, with 153/196 characters/vehicles unlocked and purchased, 185/250 Gold Bricks, 26/35 Stan Lee Rescues, 4/15 Red Bricks (including the 2x, 4x and 10x multipliers), 10/15 True Believer Statuses, and 56/150 Minikits. A couple of the mission trophies did not unlock for me after numerous full and half replays of them in both story and free play (missions Avengers Assemble, and No Strings On Me), but I figured as long as I could get 100% in the rest of the game, I could then go back and get those last 2 trophies for the platinum. Well now, 6 characters in Manhattan are glitched, 1 character from S.H.I.E.L.D Base is glitched, and the game keeps freezing at different specific points between choosing to play No Strings On Me, the loading screen for it, during the first cutscene, and just after the transition from the first area, effectively making the level unplayable. 

 

Now, this game is actually from my local library, so I'd need to check it out again for another 7 days to actually play it again, which doesn't help. My question is should I go for all the trophies that I still can to be able to have then sooner rather than later, and then replay the game to get the 100% and everything, or should I just restart now and not essentially waste any more time?

I vote restart now. The glitch has already fried the 100% completion trophy and any other applicable. Sure you'd get any story related trophies if you power through, but, to your point, you'd have to replay anyway for 100%.

I would say restart. I had glitched characters on the vita version as well but didn't notice that until the end where I couldn't find the last character and got stuck at 99.9% completion so better restart now.

From the dire situation your in i'd say restart completely. The save file seems to be glitched.

i agree, if the 100% required everything to unlock. even if he got everything else he would lose out :(.

This is the reason I keep telling myself not to play another LEGO game. Your best option is to restart and make sure to back up your save file frequently so you won't have to repeat for a third time

I was gonna do this for sure. I was thinking once every hour to back up the save. I had a save issue in Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist where the save got wiped back to 0.0%, but remained intact. Both the saves on my system and the Cloud were affected together, idk how but it did. So this time I'm gonna use the Cloud and a USB. I am about to play 6 more Lego games this month, trying to burn through my backlog. I'm gonna do the same for those too.

 

Also, one thing I forgot to mention was that I used cheat codes to unlock a few of the characters and a couple Red Bricks. This time I'm not going to use them. Before I thought they just affected the two story trophies I mentioned, as I used them just before going into those chapters. That might've been the cause, hopefully

I am more surprised that you local library rents out video games. That is really cool. I would say restart too.

Yeah, they only just started building up a catalog for them at the beginning of 2015, so they don't have too many. Most of the new releases are added to their available catalog, though, and it's rare that older games get added. I think for PS3 they have like 60 or 70 games, with about 5 or so duplicate copies. PS4 they have about 80. Not too many, but certainly enough. I know Far Cry Primal is an easy and fairly quick plat for the type of game it is, so I just checked that out yesterday. It's great considering I can try out a game before buying it, and if I finish/plat it before the 7 days is up, I don't hafta buy it. It's basically like buying a used game from Gamestop, platting it and returning it before the 7 days they give you are up for a refund, only this way there's no need to exchange any money. Also having games at a library can bring in people that most likely never would've gone in there and end up checking things out frequently. Our library is pretty badass, considering I'm in a small town with 13,000ish people, and our library catalog is just as big as the library from a few towns over that has about 45,000-50,000 people and is a HUGE tourist town. You all should check your local libraries to see if they do have games. They'll almost certainly have movies, TV shows and music CDs, not just books

I know they do have movies and Cd's but I never thought about games. I will have to check it out. Our city's new Library just opened in September and I haven't been there yet but this is a good reason too. It is quite an upgrade. Before and after pictures in the spoiler.

I haven't paid for a game in over 2 years, my games from a £16 a month subscription, i can rent out 2 games per time ( more if you upgrade your package) and you can keep them for aslong as you want. according to the site i've saved over a whooping £3,400 over the course of a couple of years. This is for the UK only.

That looks pretty interesting. Looks kinda more line an industrial warehouse or the manufacturing facilities we have around here. Definitely bigger, which would allow for a bigger catalog.

We have a similar service here in the states called Gamefly. I don't subscribe to it, but I think it's like $15/month, there's a limit to how many games you can have out at a time and you can keep them for as long as you want with no late fees.

I was thinking that. Why don't you use that instead?

Cuz why do that when I can go to my library for free? Yeah I can only keep the games up to 7 days, but if I still need to play it more (like int he case of Lego Marvel Avengers), I can just wait till the next person returns it, or recheck it out if no one does, and keep playing it. Some slight inconvenience, but it saves me $15/month, and my backlog is big enough without adding Gamefly or other services like that.

Unfortunately after replaying the 2 levels I mentioned in free play twice, a third time just to start and then save and quit, and then a fourth time in story mode again, the trophies still never popped. I was gonna get 100% for the rest of the, since I was still able to get all the collectibles from the two levels before the second one started freezing on me at the beginning every time, but after finding out about M.O.D.O.K. being glitched, followed immediately by Ant-Man and some character on a corner in Yorkville, plus 3 others in Manhattan that just wouldn't show up, I started questioning whether it was worth continuing or just starting over right away

I'm happy I did get to do all the DLC trophies with no issues. When I play the game again, I don't have to install the DLC. Maybe that might've had an effect on the save file or something, installing the DLC onto a save file already started
