I finished all 3 Jak and Daxter games. It took me one week which is the shortest time for a collection. I did Jak and Daxter in 8 hours, Jak in 2 days 9 hours (thought it was 3), and Jak 3 in 1 day 11 hours (Thought it was 2 days). It brought me back to when I was playing the triology on PS2. Jak and Daxter was one of my first PS2 games. I remember I finished them all but can't believe I did since Jk 2 was so difficult and i needed to look up how to pass some things at certain times. I must have een really good at gaming when I was younger. Although i feel I'm better now even if i need a guide at some times. Don't want to miss anything.
There is a major difference between Jak and Daxter and it's sequels. It goes from simple platformer to action platformer. Gets darker too. I think I like the turn though as it had more story. I found jak 2 to be the hardest since it had many insanly hard missions that if you failed you had to start from the beginning. Very few checkpoints. Jak 3 was my favorite. It had just the right difficulty, a little frustrating but fun.
I never thought I could forget a game so much but I didn't recall the final bosses of any of the games just thta i did them. I also mixed up Jak 2 and 3 final area. I thought in 2 I would be driving at the end but it was 3.
With Jak 3 done i know have 35 platinum trophies. I reached level 16 on PSN. My completion rating is 77.3%... for now. It's about to get lower soon. My next game will either be the God of War Saga or the Infamous Collection. I'm taking a break from gaming because I wore myself out this past month getting so many trophies. Got 7 platinums this month alone. So I am tired.
I started playing the Jak and Daxter collection yesterday and managed to get platinum on the first game in 18 hours. It was hard collecting those precurser orbs but I did it. I used an OK guide to do so. I still recall playing all 3 when I was a kid. I got the original as one of my first PS2 games. I played all 3 on PS2 and just happy to get to play them all again on 3.
J&D was pretty hard since at most you could only get hit 4 times. Some of the collectibles were slightly hidden and some methods to get power cells weren't displayed until you did them. A guide helped. I think I beat the game on PS2 but not sure. doubt I got everything in it.
They really changed Jak between 1 and the sequels. He was silent in the first and then became a dark anti hero in 2 & 3. Also started using guns. I don't know what happened. Plus they dropped Daxter's name. Still, they were all pretty fun.
It looks like the majority of trophies in Jak 2 are story based. They do want you to collect all the precurser orbs which are harder this time around, plus 510 metal head tokens for killing metal heads. Luckily there are orb glitches during these collect an orb race that let you get as many as you want. I'll just use them to reach 286. The metal head tokens won't be too bad but the possibility I will have to play again in hero mode is posisble. I'm just going to do my best to farm them if I can.
I said I would take a break this week but really wanted to start Jak. I did the first in one day so that was cool. I hope I can finish the series by Monday. Then I take a break before my next game. It looks like God of War Saga will be next.
I finally did it. It seems like forever but iwas really 1 month, 6 days. Not all at once and I had put it away so I could play other games. I was going to take some time off before Jak & Daxter but decided to try SF X T while I wait. I still needed to do mission 20 along with do the 500 cross arts/assaults. I wasn't going to do them until I did mission 20 because they would be pointless since they take too long and I would need mission 20 for platinum. Mission 20 was a 19 tag team gaunlets against all characters in the game. You can understand that was difficult. I kept trying and couldn't do it. I used Zangief & Rolento. I had Zangief do his lariet which caused lots of damge but sometimes wouldn't hit and could get hit. I finally decided to try a different move and equipped him with a super easy gem so he could his powerbomb grab move. He was invulnerable for a short time, it was chargeable, and did lots of damage. I finally did it using that. Rolento helped with his patriot circle. I was happy I did all missions but those cross moves had to be done.
I counted I would have to do win 125 matches at 4 fights to do one 500 set. that's 500 rounds all together for 1000 rounds total. I needed 300 of each to be for the win which pretty much meant they would be due to having to build up the meter. Having a 2nd controller pays off again. I used Chun Li and gave her a gem that would activate if her(might have been team) total life is low (which I set at 25%), a gem that activated when I hit my opponent with 3 special moves, and another with 4. I was just using her kikoken and then just hitting Zangief until I could land my cross move. Took 2 days. Just happy it's done.
This makes 4 near impossible trophies by yourgamercards tracking. It would be five but some more people got the paltinum in Lucha Libre bringing it up. It's my 3rd rarest at 3.08%. Rarer than Shadow of the Colossus. I always knew I could do this game.
I want to say that the online was terrible. I kept being unable to connect to a lobby me or my friend set up. Yeah we were boosting but the game was basically saying you couldn't play with your friends. Similiar thing happened in BlazBlue. Man online sucks.
I made some progress on my backlog. Here's what remains and in the order I intend to play. I have to do all games in each collection mentioned. Jak & Daxter Collection, God of War Collection, InFamous Collection, Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Fallout 3 GOTY.
I still got my buy 2 get 1 free coupon for Gamestop. My birthday is coming and I might get a 20% off coupon that turns into 30% with my powerup card. I want Ratchet & Clank A Crack in Time & Soulcalibur 5 which are cheap used but I'm having trouble picking out a 3rd. I might get a 3DS game. The 30% game should be something big like $30 since that's $9 off. I want Ratchet & Clank FFA which gets you Ratchet Deadlocked later. So my backlog is about to grow again.After getting these last games, I'm not getting any more until Black Friday. unless I find a bunch on sale (Buy 2 get 1 free counts). I want PlayStation All Stars but I want it $20 new. I download Kat & Emmett so I wouldn't have to buy them. I can wait. Got so much to do.I'm actually planning to take a break from playing games next week. Clear my head.
One final thing to say... Animal Crossing is coming June 9th! YES! I'm also planning to get Donkey Kong Country Returns on 3DS instead of Wii.
I just finished the Ratchet & Clank Collection. It took 2 weeks.... 2 awesome weeks. I can't believe I never played any on PS2. I really didn't like the way Ratchet looked on the cover for the collection which is also the same for Arsenal. His teeth are showing and his face looked weird. Non of the covers really get his game apperance right imo. I feel I was judging a game on it's cover. Shameful... done it so many times.
The first game really got me into it. I started with 4 hit points and eventually got it too 8. It wasn't that hard and I managed to beat Drek without the Rhyno. It took some times to get used to fighting him and had to raise money to use the PDA in battle since I ran out of bolts. I had to get million bolts, which was cumulative, for the last trophy. I was in my 2nd challenge mode when I managed to get this bolt glitch working in blackwater city. I had to use the taunter in the 2nd pipe in the hydrosplicer part. It only happens rarely but I tried a little in my first game and then as I was going through in my 1st challenge mode. It happened in my 2nd and I didn't want to let go off circle. I spent hours doing it until I reach nearly half a million bolts. Turns out I was 3 over done but I got it. I wish I had played on at least until the 2nd hoverboard race so I could have gotten the discount in 3.
I think the 2nd was my favorite. Although the last boss was terrible.I also hated having to fly through all the rings in a ship race to get a platinum bolt. It was annoying. I loved the story though and really liked Angela. She was better than Sasha from 3 imo.
At first I thought the 3rd would be my least favorite but I keep looking back and feel it wasn't. I really enjoyed the weapons and the game play. There were no races and no ship battles like the 2nd. My only problem was during the first turret challenge during challenge mode as it took me a long time to do. Other than that it was fine.
It's hard to tell which one was my favorite. I can say All 4 One is my least favorite so far. I plan to get Full Frontal Assault which will get you Ratchet Deadlocked for free. You got to buy it new though. I'm getting it on PS3 which has cross buy for Vita (Which I don't have). just have to figure out how to do this. I also want A Crack in Time. I may even get Tools of Destruction despite no trophies.
Up next is the Jak Collection. i played all 3 on PS2. With my PS2 not working I didn't feel bad getting the collection. It does mean I'm putting my PS2 games under my bed when I need shelf space first. I need a break first. I spent 2 weeks on R&C and felling burnt out. I still got a buy 2 get 1 free coupon at Gamestop and my birthday s coming up so I'll probably get a 20% off coupon. That's 4 games. They are releasing Meloetta next month for all gen 5 Pokemon games so I will have another reason to go. I'm getting 4, one for each.
One of my favorite TV shows returns tomorrow. The Walking Dead. I'm so excited. I just love it. Been talking about it since the mid season finale. There have been so many trailers and sneak peeks that they might as well as showed us the whole episode. They also confirmed season 4.
Been checking in to see when the new issue is realesed so I can see what happenes. I look the wikia page for since I don't know where to find the comics. Issue 107 is due out on the 12th or 13th. Some stuff was already posted which was interesting. The issue I really want to see is next month's which says "Ezekiel has a tiger" and a guy with a tiger on the cover. Got to see what this is about.
I am just so excited for the next 8 weeks. Then I will be sad until I think Falling Skies returns.
There are two things I really want. The first is a new 1080 HD TV. I don't know if P or I matter but I'll go with P since It seems more common. I'm pretty much just going to play games on it and really don't care about TV shows being in HD. Along with 1080P, I want it to be 32' or bigger. My current is 720 and 19'. The last thing is I don't want to spend more than $200. My best bet is for Black Friday or some big drop in tv's like this' price. I also want 3 HDMI slots but I am willing to go if it means I don't have a place for my cable to hook up. It's direcTV and I have a wire that screws on.
The 2nd thing, is a laptop. Tired of having to go to my desktop to when I need help in a game. I would also like to do stuff while watching TV. It would be nice to have a computer with me at all times. Can't believe I still don't have one. I don't want to spend more than $200 for one and would prefer $150 or less. I need it to at least use Windows XP and Microsoft Office 2007 since that's what I'm currently using. I would might like if it used Windows 7... but not Vista or 8. My school sells laptops but I think they may be over priced... like the books... they also sell TV's(not kidding). I really feel it will help me do more since I can take it anywhere.
Those are the two things. Really hoping Black Fridya is good to me again this year. Don't think I'm going to get video games like the last two years. Some cheap buy 2 get 1 free stuff for PS3/3DS and maybe a new game that has it's price real low like PlayStation All Stars. That should be $20 or less by the end of the year. I really hope I cna get these at good prices. The prices have to go down eventually right?
I started Playing the Ratchet & Clank collection Monday and began with the 1st game. I just got platinum today and relived. Getting a million bolts was hard work and I had to do 2 more playthroughs. I finally got this glicth to work that gave me infinite bolts and got the last trophy. I held down the circle button so it wouldn't stop giving me bolts just because I wanted it done. I had thought I would need nearly half a million bolts to be done and when I checked I had the platinum but was 3 hours over. Guess I didn't need as much as I thought. I got it though. Now on to the next one.
I really enjoyed playing it (multiple times). It gets easier when you have your weapons all gold and the rhyno. That thing is a beast. I loved the game play much more than All 4 One but waiting to see what 2 and 3 can do. I really liked the story in the first and Ratchet seemed a bit more mean than All 4 One. Still liked him though.
I'm thinking of starting Ratchet 2 on monday so I can get a break. I really like the series and it's a shame I never played it on PS2.
I just want to say I reported my page overlap problem, it got insulted, but reported. Just going to have to change my screen resolution to view this site. It's things like this that make you want to leave. Anways, tomorrow starts my spring semester. I signed up for 6 courses but will drop 2. I only need enough for 12 credit hours and 4 is enough. Sometimes 3. I'm want to see which are the easiest and least frustrating. I'm planning to take maybe 2 courses this summer to get more done. This means that I may have less time for gaming.
I just started Marvel Vs.Capcom 3 yesterday and almost done. I just need to win 5 ranked matches in a row which I already have 3. There is a trick that you can backup your save with the wins and if you lose overwite your current save with the one with the wins. Cheap but effective. Just 2 more wins. I also need to surpass the rank of fighter which apperently involves 10 ranked wins. Not sure if losing still gives me points or takes them away. The last thing I can get requires me to either surpass 1st or fight someone who has. Not many 1st people online. Might be on the weekends though. Actually reaching the rank requires over 1000 wins so this way is easier. I cannot do the missions. I managed to 80 but that was by using all characters. So I just want the first 2 trophies i mentioned and maybe the last one which I will try on weekends.
After I finish up with MVC 3 I plan o start Ratchet & Clank collection. I'm thinking then go to the Jak & Daxter Colelction, God of War Saga, & then Infamous Collection. That's 12 games with 11 platinum trophies. I of course plan to get them all.
I put Street Fighter X Tekken up. I just need to do mission 20 and then the 500 cross arts/assaults to get platinum. Want to do the mission first since that's a lot to do without being guaranteed. I'm going to do the mission eventually. I still have promised two friends to help them get 100 wins online but I have to sya the online in SF XT is the worst I have ever seen. You often can't join a lobby with your friend, you can't conect. It's the same for open and private lobbies. It is just terrible.
I managed to get 1500 trophies. I wanted 2000 for the year but I may pass it. I have 2,251 possible trophies. If I finish all those collections I'll have over 2000 trophies and have reached level 17. I'll have hit my goal. I'll have to update my goals when that happens. I think sometime in April. I'm going to go watch TV.
I finally got the trophy "Your legend will never die" for winning 100 matches online. Most of them were from boosting wins with 36 of them being boosted today after I helped another get his rank to C. It was taking awhile and the online disconnected a few times. Sometimes we got couldn't connect to lobby which really sucked. I'm going to help him get his 100 wins tomorrow. I'm planning to use a turbo controller and i should make it so the x button does nothing to make it easier for him. I'm close to having 500 online matches and this will help me. I got maybe 385. It won't be long now until i'm done with SF X T online.
I have done all missions except for 20. One more and I'm done and this is pretty much a guranteed platinum. Just have to do 500 cross assaults and another 500 cross arts on top of winning 300 matches with them. They will all have to be wins since the cross moves use 3 meters and take awhile to fill. It's just going to be tedious. I know I can finish mission 20 as I did get to Akuma/Ogre, the last two, before losing. Once I finish it I'll post a request in the trophy boosting thread for help with Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 online trophies as it would feel better knowing I could get asked to do them while doing the cross moves so it won't seem so boring.
I got a request today for boosting BlazBlue Continuum Shift. I asked for help 2 months ago and can't beleive someone responded. I said yes but wish I didn't. I forgot how long doing so would be. I had the other guy win so he could reach my level, 32, and it took hours to do so with turbo. We had to reach level 50 to get the trophy. I had other stuff to do and finally decided to stop. The trophy is not worth it. I don't think I will ever try it again even if I had nothing else to do. I learned something about trophies.
Also my screen is still cut on this site. I use 800x600 screen resolution and it used to be fine. I don't know what happened. No one else is saying anything, although I haven't looked.
Got my gold nunchuck today in the mail. Cost me 900 coins and now I got 70 left. I'm adding more coins until the Club Nintendo year ends in June since I already hit 600 this year. I now have two complete Wii remotes. I attached my new nunchuck to my Zelda Wii remote to complete it. It looks nice. Good I got it since their sold out again. Now I have to watch as games i might want get added for coins. Oh well
I renewed my Powerup membership at Gamestop on Saturday. I also picked up the Infamous Collection new. It was sealed and the case felt used since the slot for one of the disc had it's tip broken for connecting. The guy insisted it was new and the disc he had for it along with the code would work. I said I'd be back if it didn't. It worked thankfully but I noticed it had no manuel which I said I would start making sure games had. It seems to have a digital manuel which is useless when playing unless you can look at it when pressing the PS button. I began downloading everything and when I got to Infamous Festival of Blood it was taking a long time because it was 3 GB's. Not only that but my internet went out and my system froze. Had to redownload eveything. I should have done everything in the background so it wouldn't have glitched. I blame the new PS store... and the whole being forced to download a 3GB game.
While downloading I deicded to see how fast I could download. Over Wi Fi my PS3 was downloading 12 MB's a minute which is 720 an hour which would take 4 hours and 30 minutes to finish. I recall the two god of War games being 16 GB so they took almost 23 hours to download. That is a lot. According to Speedtest.net, my download speed i 1.76 mbps and upload is .33 mbps. I assume it would faster if I connected my router to my PS3 instead of using Wi Fi. I had tried to download a ton of demos which were all almost or over a GB. I got bored real fast with that so I'll only download something if I really want to try it. I was just getting anything that looked interesting. Although I do see it as being useful. Just more big stuff.
For renewing my Powerup card I got a buy 2 get 1 free coupon that expires March 31st. so I got time. My birthday is in March which usually gives me a 20% off a used game coupon. I'm going to get something big for that. I'm also hoping they put Wii and DS games buy 2 get 1 free again. I want Donkey Kong Country returns and Pokemon Conquest and I'll need one other. I'll use my buy 2 get 1 free on some PS3/3DS games. Just waiitng for some price drops.
My last thing is has anyone noticed that part of Gamespot is cut off if you're using small screen resolution? I'm using 800X600 and when I went up I could see everything. The right side is cut off and I can't click see all blogs or see what's in my feed. I often can't read parts of blogs or comments because their on the right. Another thing.
Now that I'm down with Sly I've started Street Fighter X Tekken. I've got 29/50 trophies so far and the rest are the hardest. I got a bunch to do online and hope I can find someone to work on getting them with. There are a lot of trophies for grinding moves such as pandora, super attacks, and those cross arts plus one for winning with them. Their doable but time consuming. I'm doing good on the pandora ones as I'm also grinding out ex moves with them. I realy hope there's gems that help with the cross attacks since i need 3 bars.
When I first started playing i was terrible. Still am but I known how to do a few moves. Right now I'm best at using Poison and Hugo. I know like all of Poison's specials and Hugo is good muscle. I have heard good things about Zangief though and maybe I'll make the switch. I'm mainly spamming at this point.
I did manage to win a few games online. They were against pretty weak people and I got to 200 BP. I need 500 and 1000 for two trophies. It's ranked but there is a boosting method. I hope to find someone to boost with as I need those plus 100 wins, plus 500 total online fights.
I managed to do hardest arcade with Poiosn & Hugo now I just need to use Tekken characters to beat Akuma. Street Fighter characters fought Ogre from Tekken. This may be hard since I don't know who to use. I did 3 missions but the rest seem near impossible. I'll lok at videos though.
When I'm done with this game, either platinum or boredom, I'm going to start Marvel vs Capcom 3. Not ultimate as I'm going to play the original to see if I want Ultimate.
Today has been an amazing day. I finally got platinum in all three Sly games in the collection. They were amazing. I loved the story in each of of them. The challenges in Sly got tough sometimes but i pulled though. The fight with Dr.M was my last challenge and pretty hard under time limit. But I kept doing fast attacks and beat him. It wasn't that hard. I'm going to try the Sly 4 demo. Not going to be able to get it until the price drops on either new or used depending on if their are online trophies requirng a pass.
Sly has one of the best stories I've ever heard in a game. No matter how odd a character was they were great. I really liked how Dmitri talked. It was nice of Sly to help Panda King after he killed his parents and then they joined forces. I liked Penelope but her missions were tough since she used RC stuff. I enjoyed playing as The Murray and loved his mugging technique. Bentley was great too and I used him to put enemies to sleep and rob 'em. Sly was amazing and my favorite character to use since the game was pretty much best suited for him. Carmelita was freat too in the few times I could use her. I liked using her the most of all non Sly characters. I hope there will be more Sly after 4.
In order of which I liked the best... Sly 2, Sly 1, & Sly 3. Sly was the best IMO. Can't wait to see where Sly 4 will place.
After The Sly Collection I'm up to 1404 total trophies. 28 platinum, 116 gold, 303 silver, & 957 bronze. I'm 86% to level 15. I'm doing pretty good. I got 52 games registered. It's going to be 53 when I buy Sonic the Fighters and then 56 when I get The Infamous Collection. After no more games until Animal Crossing New Leaf. I'm planning to play sonic the Fighters next and then Street Fighter X Tekken. I got a message from someone who wants to boost BlazBlue Continuum Shift level 50 trophy and I can do that since I'm free now.
Next order of buisness... Pokemon X & Y... The 6th gen begins this OCtober worldwide. I still need Meloetta to be done with the 5th gen but I'm ready for the 6th. Like past gens there should be at least 100 new Pokemon brining the total up to at lest 749... totally doable. Here's hoping for over 760. I'm getting both versions together along with a guide because that's what I do with Pokemon... my favorite series of all time. I really like the legendaries. That Stag looks majestic and The Y bird looked so cool. I like that it's in 3D and in 3D.... why are they both called 3D? I'm going to miss the sprites though. I feel so strange about this. I really liked the 5th gen and it made me feel like I was playing for the 1st time again. Now it feels over.
I also want to sya that I ordered the gold nunchunk from Club nintendo today. Must have had some heavy traffic as it took me some time to get on. Only got 70 coins left and not registering anything else till next year starts in June. I already got the 600 for the year. I'm putting that gold nunchuck on my Zelda Wii remote.
I have the platinum in Sly 1 and Sly 2 brining me up to 27 platinum trophies. Sly 1 was more platformer like than Sly which was open world like. I liked the story in Sly 2 the most even though I got frustrated with game play a lot. I was all set to say Sly 1 was better than 2 but the story really got to me and now i got to say Sly 2 is better. The game play even got to me. Going to start Sly 3 soon.
I didn't have to but I found all clue bottles in Sly 2. Got so many powerup and some good ones. The last one let me turn invisible and walk. I had a skill like that in the first. I liked the silent kill that Sly 2 had and being able to put moves on the R/L buttons. I really didn't like using Murray & Bentley at first but got used to it. I started to enjoy Bentley hacking game and Murray got better with new powerups.
I'm going to begin playing Sly 3 soon. After that I'll play the last sly mini game to get finish the whole collection. I haven't decided if I will get Sly 4 since I waiting to look into it. Trying to avoid as much spoilers as possible.
I still have $9.49 of that $20 SPN card I won. I've decided to get Sonic the Fighters. It's a Sonic fighing game form the 90's that looks fun and has easy trophies. It's $4.99 which will leave me with $4.50. I don't actually plan to buy anther card anytime soon so I could get one game for $3.99 and then with the remaining money get a new icon since their like $.49... a bit too much imo but what else?
I'm going to see if PS3 can play PS1 games. i know mine can't play PS2 games... which saddens me but I hear they can play 1. I really would like to transfer my PS2 data to 3 somehow. My PS2 is dead, I think. The light still comes on when plugged in and when I press it, it gets brighter before going back. I was thinking of transfering my saves from it to a flash drive. I don't feel like spending $50 getting another just to do that though. One day maybe.
2012 is over tonight and I want to look back on 2012.
A really good year for games. I learned about the trophy system and began mastering it. 22 of my platinums were obtained this. I played so many new game series this year. Most were used or discounted though and few actually came out this year. Still, they were good games. My favorite games of the year were Pokemon White 2, The Walking Dead, Shadow of the Colossu, Mortal Kombat, Demon's Souls, Bayonetta, Darksiders, & Bayonetta. The games i'm looking forwrd too in 2013 are Animal Crossing New Leaf, BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma, & Teken X Street Fighter along with older games I can get cheap.
My gaming goals for 2013 are to reach 50 platinums, collect 2000 trophies, & reach level 17 on PSN. I also want to finally have 500 games.
I feel this was a real good year for TV. Discovered My Little Pony Frindship is Magic along with some other new shows. I like getting into new shows. The Walking Dead seaosn 3 first half was amazing. I liked how Rick killed Tomas. My TV goal for 2013 is to get into some new series whether new or old.
Black Friday 2013
This had to mentioned as it's my favorite holdiay. For the last two years I've been buying lots of games on Black Friday. Discounted games and buy 2 get 1 free on used. I'm hoping next year to get a new TV between no less than 32" and no more than 40" with 1080 HD (not sure if it should be P or I or what the best one is) for around $250. I'm really hoping TV prices go down before Black Friday so they will make an even better deal.
Right now I have 47,709 PowerUp points aved up and only need 2,291 to have 50,000 and can get a $50 off coupon for anything at Gamestop. I plan to use it for a deluxe Wii U, unless they make an even better model. I said I would get it day one but those plans fell through. Then I said this year, but you can see that falling through right now since my big purchase of 2013 will be a TV. So my earliest estimate to get Wii U will be Black Friday 2014. Just a little tired of getting new consoles. Just Wii U and maybe the next 3DS model. I'm hoping by then they will have the price $250 or less and maybe a game or two with it other than Nintendo Land. Perhaps I'll wait on Bayonetta 2 and Smash Bros, which I'm also getting for my 3DS. My big issue is that I don't want white. the 32GB of the deluxe isn't that much plus I was getting an extenal hard drive anyways.I really enjoyed holding the controller when I saw it in stores.
I really hope I can accomplish everything I want this year. Not just games, in fact I'd like to put them down for a bit and do something else. Hope 2013 is lucky.
It was alright. I got another pair of slippers, 2 new pairs of pajama pants, a shirt, an Axe gift set, & this coin jar that counts the amount of coins when you put them in. It was pretty good. Had some good food.
I've been playing The Walking Dead since Tuesday. I manged to finsih Bakuagn Defenders of the Core Monday in 15 hours making it my fastest despite being labeled hard. Anyways, the choices are difficult and characters I liked get killed. A lot of puzzles you have to solve and some take me awhile to get. They got these danger moments when you have to act fast by pressing a button, running, or finding an object fast. It is so much fun and I love the story. It's going to be an easy platinum but I'm thinking of playing through again just to make different choices. Right now I'm in episode 4 and I should be done tomorrow.
I won a $20 PSN card a giveaway on Yourgamercards.net. I'm trying to figure how to spend it. I'm thinking of getting The Muppet pack for LittleBigPlanet 2 so I can get the trophies for it. I'm thinking .Detuned since it's $2.99 and real easy. There is also the fighting game called Fighting Vipers that looks interesting. I like fighters. I'll haveabout $6 left if I decide to get these. I can always drop Detuned and have $9 left. their not charging tax so that's good. I could download a DLC character for BlazBlue CS for their trophies. $7.99 a piece leaving me with $.99. I could also just find something for $20. I'll thnink about it.
Hope everyone had a goo Christmas and have a happy New Year.
Christmas is Tuesday but it just doesn't feel like it. No one is coming over. My sister is working so we won't be here with her two daughters. No one else usually can come. I got a few things to open and I got everyone else something. We'll just have to give it them next time they come over or we go to their house. so I've decided to go through some games this week.
I've been playing BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend for awhile and I've gotten most of the trophies. This week I'm planning to play through Bakugan Defenders of the Core, The Walking Dead, & The Sly Collection. I'd like to get them all done in a week. I have The Walking Dead in the middle because I want it to be my 25th platinum with Bakugan being the 24th. I want The Sly Collection to be together. It really doesn't matter to me what trophy is which number unless I can control which one gets the number. The Walking Dead will be #25 and afterwards I'll have 28 total platinums. After I finish all my games I'm going to start Street Fighter X Tekken.
I feel I'm making good progress with my games. Not even 60% completion rate and I'm thinking about my next games. I want The Infamous Collection so I can get the voucher for DLC and Festival of Blood that only comes with new copies. It's good until March 31st and the game is $30 right now. I wonder if it will go down before March.
Just reached trophy level 14. The trophy that got me there was "Ice, ice, ice baby" from BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend. The trophy name is written in japanese even though it's an English version of the game. Weird. anyways, that makes two BlazBlue games and trophies to increase my level. I got levl 13 with Continuum Shift's "Blood on your hands" for beating Rachel in score attack. I really like BlazBlue despite it being frustrating at times. Can't wait for Chrono Phantasma which is one of my most looked for 2012 games along with Animal Crossing.
I finally reached level 14. I want to reach 17 before my PS3 anniversary, Black Friday next year. I now have 1180 trophies and I want 2000 before said date. I'm on my way.
Yesterday I bought Bakugan Defenders of the Core and The Walking Dead A Telltale Game Series. Can't wait to play The Walking Dead. It has game play i never though I would be into but I just really love The Walking Dead.
Been playing BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend and got more than half of the trophies so far. Still need to do the story stuff. Even though I uploaded my Continuum Shif save data, I still need to do stories to get artwork. I also have to do the new people's stories and special stories. I also have abyss, training, challenge, and online. There are also some cmbo's to unlock trophies, one of which wants Ragna to do a 90 hit combo. That will be hard as I hate combo's. I'm going to look for someone to work with online.
Last week i finally got all 648 Pokemon in White 2. Just need Meloetta to have them all in it and Original Black. I'll have captured them all twice. I did catch all 493 back in Platinum so once I get Meloetta I'll have done it 3 times. Meloetta seems to have only been released in Japan so far and I do not want any hacked Pokemon so I can wait.
I've taken a break from Dead or Alive since Survival is so tough.I did the 30 fight survival with Lei Fang but looking in to the Lisa method. I still got the 50 and then 4 100's. During my break I managed to get platinum in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 & Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection. Sonic is now my fastest platinum at 22 hours, 46 minutes. That's 50 minutes faster than my 2nd, Legends of Wrestlemania. I'm up to 23 platinums now. I want 50 by Black Friday next year (Black Friday's are my year anniversary with PS3) and 2000 total.
I'm thinking of playing The Sly Collection next. I figure I can work on my hardest games better if I can get some of the others done first. There are 14 games on my shelf I have not got platinum in, 11 of which are from this years Black Friday. I want to take out afew of those collections.
I want to start out by saying I just got platinum in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 giving me 22 platinum trophies. I took a break from DoA 5 and finished Tekken in 3 days (16 because I got one trophy when I first got the game). I have to get back to DoA for survival which is all I have left. I have to do a 30 round, 50 round, and 4 100 round survivals. That's why I felt I needed a break. Anyways, I now have all 3 Tekken platinums plus 100% in the prologue. While playing Tekken online I got a nasty letter for using Lili & Anna saying women can't fight and go make me a sandwhich. That never happened before. My first year on PlayStation 3 was on Black Friday so now I'm on year 2. Got lots of stuff I want to do this coming year both game and non game related.
- Collect 500 games (I'm at 474 so just 26 more)
- Collect 2000 trophies. (I got 1111 right now)
- Collect 50 platinums (I got 20 in my first year currently at 22)
- Reach level 17 on PSN (It takes more points to level up past 12)
- Bring my game completion rate back up to 90% on yourgamercards (Curently 55.1% due to mass installs)
- Work on my writings...
- Reach 50,000 PowerUp Rewards points (I have 47379 points so far)
- Get into some new stuff (TV shows, Movies, Games, Books, Etc)
- Read Chronicles of Narnia The Last Battle (Only one left)
Once I reach 50,000 points I can get $50 off any item and I bet U know what I want. It would be also nicer if the Deluxe dropped by $50 or more. I'm probably going to wait for Bayonetta or Smash Bros anyways.
I got a lot of PlayStation stuff to do. I'm doing so well on it. In my first year I reached level 13, had 20 platinums, and over 1000 trophies. Now I want to make next year twice as good as last. I'm going by Black Friday for years beginning and end. I also finally am going to reach 500 games. I just can't help myself with buying new games and I love it. I'm going to get the InFamous Collection next time I go to Gamestop and don't think I need the one with the controller. Though maybe I should just to have a 2nd. I don't know and hope another game I want comes with a controller.
I'm thinking of arranging my trophies on my system by name since if I put a game that I already got platinum in, it would move to the top which I don't want. So alphabetical might be better. My online lists show them from new trophy so I can look at them for platinum order. I've gotten 49 trophy sets due to so many collections. I feel I can achieve my goals and then some. Better get back too work.
Did this last with 11 for 2011 and now I'm doing it again for 2012. These are the top 12 shows that I really enjoyed this year. Starting with 12.
12. American Dad
This single clip is why the show got on the list but i don't know how to post video
It's Francine singing her shot song and it turns out to be in her head. So funny. I think American Dad, even though the same as Family Guy & The Cleveland show with it's ridiculous plots, is funnier than the two.
11. Eureka Seven
This is the first Time I've watched the series. Never watched the previous times it was on Cartoon Network. I really like it though I can't understand what the plot is. I missed the first episode due to my DVR not recording it. Sometimes the guide gets updated and changes so I miss the record.
10. Samurai 7
Just like Eureka 7, I missed the 1st episode and I also missed another one due to the DVR not recording it. I forgot they changed the schedule on Adult Swim and that's what happened. Anyways, I love this show. It has samurais fighting robots, sometimes giant.
9. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
I was first concerned the new series wouldn't be as good as the one from 2003, still isn't, but it's pretty good. They have April as a teenager and haven't shown Casey Jones. I found myself enjoying the show and hope it lasts a long time.
8. Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated
I waited a long time for season 2 and then it came on at 2 in the afternoon weekdays. I didn't get why it did that but whatever. I really like the series for it's continuing mystery but it seems to have turned supernatural although the monsters have been real in 2 or 3 movies Still I like how everything is going and can't wait for the rest of the season. It come sback January 27th.
7. Phineas and Ferb
I just like this show. I watched every episode I could find on Youtube this summer. Pretty much everything prior to this current season.
6. Fish Hooks
I initially wasn't interested in wtahcing this show but then I kept seeing commercials for it and decided to watch. I loved it so much that I had to go back and watch every episode. Now that I'm caught up... I'm waiting for more episode. Season 3 is coming up. I really like Disney cartoons these days.
5. Regular Show
OOOOHHH!you knew this was making the list. Every episode is awesome and always has a dark meaning to everything. Like Rock, Paper, Scissors or video games. I love when Mordecai and Rigby go OOOOHHH! It's funny.
4. Adventure Time with Finn and Jake
I don't think there's really a big story to the show like world wide threat. I find it just another episode that sometimes gets referenced again. Recently they showed Finn in another world with a machical hand and a friend of mine put up a long analysis of it. It turns out they entered along with The Lich a dimension with this being who can grant wishes. Kind of a cheat but I enjoyed the episode regardless. I do hope they explain the ghosy lady from the manison though. The have another season coming after the current one so maybe.
3. Gravity Falls
I first saw the preview to this show when I was watching TV with my mom and I knew it would be good. I was right. Though the one thing I don't like is Dipper obsessing over Wendy and I dislike Robbie completely. I like Mabel the most followed Seus (He ate a man alive). New episodes start in January and I hope the series continues for a long time.
2. The Walking Dead
This would have been number 1 or at least tied if they hadn't killed Oscar because Tyresse was joining the cast. I feel that's why they did it. Anyways, This first part of the season has been awesome and way better than last. Rick has no problems killing people any more and really liked him killing Tomas. I still don't understand how Andrew got away from the walkers and could hide in the prison. I was upset T-Dog died. Carl really matured and Carol became pretty good. I feel if Andrea dies then Carol can take her place from the comics. I'm really not liking Andrea. The mid season ended with Rick and his group going into Wodbury to rescue Glenn and Maggie. They get them but Oscar dies and Daryl gets captured. Daryl gets away since he's seen in the trailer for the upcoming episode. It's obvious he wasn't going to die.
1. My Little Pony Friendship is Magic
A show I probably would never have seen if it wasn't for a friend here. Although it's mentioned pretty much everywhere and I may had looked into it. I'm glad all the episodes are availbe on Youtube because I don't have the Hub. When I do get it it's never during a new episode. This has been my show of 2012. Would have tied with Walking Dead had I not explained why not. Every episode just makes me happy. Never thought I would like singing in a show but I can't get enough of them singing. I even liked Sweetie Bell's campfire song.
Some shows didn't make it like Young Justice (I assume it did last year) and Green Lantern The Animated Series. They were pretty good and I can't believe they were taken off until next year. That was low. I hope Young Justice gets a 3rd season and a 2nd for Green Lantern as well as bring Razor back plus give Aya a new body. I was really getting into Generator Rex and they just took it off or ended it fast. I liked it more than Ben 10. I guess it didn't sell too many toys. A show on FX called Unsupervised was cancelled after first getting renewed. I really liked it. Sad to see shows i like go and others get moved around.
So that is my list for this year. I'm going to go look at my last years list.
