  1. I'm somewhat curious what new games from PS1/PS2/PSP gen (hey where's the Vita?) will be added that weren't available on PSN store during PS3 days. If it's essentially what's currently on PS3 PSN store, then it's going to be a harder sell for me to get the service when I can just play what I have on PS3.

    I have an Asian account so I'll look at it next week if it allows me to see/browse the games.

    To tie into something earlier mentioned

    People Can Fly - the studio that did Outriders - reported that the sales of Outriders wasn't enough to receive any royalties from Square Enix (at least by the end of 2021 that is)

    They are still planning on releasing the DLC "Worldslayer" this year (but that still seems a little sketchy based on recent news and the fact that it doesn't have anything further than a "this year" tag despite the original game being out for over a year)

    And it's another game that uses servers for the entirety of the game, so I better Platinum this quickly.

  3. As a trophy hunter, I'm concerned about being able to get the online trophies for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and being able to 100% Rise of the Tomb Raider & Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Also, I'm hoping that this doesn't mean that Avengers will be shutting down sooner than later and I'm hoping they'll fix the numerous bugs/issues/unobtainable trophies with the new owners.

    Also, I really hope we'll see more realistic expectations for Crystal Dynamics/Eidos Montreal/S-E Montreal games from Embracer. Expecting Final Fantasy like sales for their games wasn't fair on them.

    It also makes me wonder about the financial shape Square Enix is in to be selling their North American developers/division basically. I wouldn't be surprised if Sony swoops in to buy the remaining Japanese portion of Square Enix.

  4. It's rumored/pretty much accepted as fact that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Remastered will be out around the same time as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II.

    I'm legitimately confused at this point that Activision didn't go the "God of War Ragnarok" route of naming the sequel: Why not Call of Duty: Going Dark? Or something referenced in the reboot game?

    I saw an article saying there have been a couple leaks that suggest the next Mortal Kombat game might be a trilogy title with every character from 9, 10, and 11, and they called that "a dissapointment". Meanwhile I'm over here thinking "what the actual fuck are you talking about, dude", that's pretty much every single character anyone ever cared about in Mortal Kombat history save for, like... Reiko and Chameleon, I think? In the MK 11 engine? That sounds fucking awesome.

    It's not the first time they did a Mortal Kombat Trilogy game - they did one back in the day for Mortal Kombat 1-3 on Nintendo 64 and PS1. So I'd rather they put something out that potentially shows a new engine before they do Mortal Kombat 12 (or whatever title it's taking).

  6. Got my 248th Platinum trophy with Fall Guys last night. Basically, it's been a race the last couple of weeks to Platinum this due to MediaTonic releasing a new launcher (and new trophy list) on April 5 and discontinuing the current launcher on May 9. This is, in effect, a server shutdown.

    MediaTonic support just basically doesn't understand how trophies work and claim the old list will be deleted on May 9 when there's a brand new list that's out. Sony will never do that for anyone.

    Not really a new game per se but the Witcher 3 Next-Gen Update has been delayed "indefinitely" as CD Projekt Red is bringing the project back in house.

    It had been being done by Saber Interactive’s Russia office

    So either a) CD Projekt Red doesn't like even more bad press about having a Russian team handle the upgrade or b) this is another Cyperpunk 2077 situation and the upgrade is off the rails.

  8. I have tickets to see Sigur Ros in May and Fleet Foxes in July, both in Marietta. I just got tickets to see Red Hot Chili Peppers in August at Truist Park but I've always heard that Anthony Kiedis sucks vocally live. I just don't feel that Anthony Kiedis or John Frusciante are long for this world after Taylor Hawkins' death.

    Ubisoft announced that they are ceasing development on any new content for Ghost Recon Breakpoint

    They claim they will keep maintaining the servers for both Breakpoint and Wildlands 

    I am shocked - SHOCKED - the NFT scam they tried blew up in their face

    Guess this means I need to get the Platinum/100% on Wildlands and the Platinum on Breakpoint sooner rather than later. It's a matter of time before Ubisoft announces a server shutdown for both. The servers are still up now, but once they go down, the Platinums will be unobtainable.

    Playstation will be shutting down the Everybody's Golf servers on Sept 30 (you will be still be able to play single player afterwards)


    The Platinum will be unobtainable once it shuts down. There's a trophy that essentially requires playing through the game and beating all the rivals to be able to do all the entries in the fish encyclopedia and the rivals' appearances are tied to the servers.

    The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe - 4/27/22

    "An expanded re-imagining"

    Despite it being a Nintendo Switch video it is also coming out on PS4 and PS5 and the XBOX One and XBOS X/S

    Will likely get this for PS4/PS5 and it hopefully has a Platinum. Although the original game on Steam has some unobtainable achievements that no one have figured out.

    I am presupposing you have purchased Game Pass, because the general answer of "what should I do with an xbox" is "game pass." With that in mind, here is A Condensed List of Games On Game Pass I Think Are Excellent in order of Excellentitude.

    • Kentucky Route Zero
    • Hollow Knight
    • Gears of War Judgment
    • Titanfall 2
    • The Hitman Trilogy
    • Dragon Quest XI S
    • Yakuza Like A Dragon
    • Streets of Rage 4
    • Outer Wilds
    • Children of Morta if you have someone to play local co-op with
    • Banjo Kazooie Nuts & Bolts

    if you're looking for system exclusives, those are all in development at the moment lol check back in a year or so

    also yes i think gears of war judgment is better than titanfall 2, based on this completely non existent scale called excellentitude i just made up

    Most of those on the list I actually own on PS4 (except for Banjo Kazooie Nuts & Bolts of course).

    Whoever designed Titanfall 2's ...Becomes The Master trophy can go die.

    Yeah - I was gonna say the same thing

    The starting point with an XBOX is getting Game Pass

    Yup, just subscribed for a $1 for first month. Already spent a couple of hours playing Dead Space (which I got a Platinum on), Mirror's Edge Catalyst (ditto), and Sunset Overdrive (basically it's Lollipop Chainsaw and Dead Rising meet in an open world game).

    I already bought a few digital games (Ori & The Blind Forest Definitive Edition, Gears 4) this morning and got a physical copy of Forza Horizon 4 on the way.

    The only drawback is none of my region free import 360 games are recognized on it for whatever reason.

  14. So I did it.

    Amazon had a Xbox Series X in stock for same day delivery and I bought it.

    I guess I should tear up my PlayStation Platinum Trophy Hunter's Card (although I have a feeling I'm still going to spend more time on my PS3/PS4/PS5 hunting Platinums than on Series X).

    Besides Forza Horizon 5 and Starfield and maybe Master Chief Collection, what else could I play on Series X?

    Speaking of things for Platinums/Trophies

    Fast & Furious Crossroads is being removed from digital storefronts at the end of April

    Bandai Namco claims the servers will remain active but if that was a game you were eyeballing you might want to do it sooner rather than later

    The trophy list is utterly garbage and reminiscent of terrible tacked-on multiplayer games in PS3 days. The voice acting is utterly bad and makes you want to destroy your ears. Do not play this game.

    It looked to be mainly based on Save the World, am I wrong? But yeah I’m just playing the solo and duos matches with a buddy from work for the most part.

    It's entirely Save The World....also if you have an UK account and you get the Platinum on the US version, it'll pop for the UK version. As well as PS5 version.

    wish me luck boys, I've officially gone down the Fortnite rabbit hole now that building "isn't a thing" (that's a lie, it definitely still is in stuff like Team Royale).

    Good luck getting the Platinum (if that's the sort of thing you're wanting to do).
