I just have the platinum of Uncharted 2 but that appears with 95% combined with the multiplayer trophies, the only game I have at 100% is Flower but it doesn't give you a platinum trophy for some reason.

But yeah, I really like unlocking these things if they are fun but the majority of achievements/trophies are about "do the same thing more than 10 times" or worse. What's the point? I'm never going to get the platinum in Demon's Souls for example for how much work it takes to get two stupid rings with the character tendency stuff, and don't forget that the game also has a world tendency system on top of it.

The idea of giving you a virtual/fake prize for doing something in a game is really bizarre really. Some developers have said in interviews that when they want to create a immersive experience there's always the problem with the achievements/trophies that pop-up out of nowhere and reminds you that you are playing a game ruining everything in the process.

Sometimes it works for some titles but most of the time is just a distraction and a really useless feature.

Not really news or anything but the cover of one the latest editions of Dengeki PlayStation has what might be a pretty big spoiler for the cover of the magazine. Square Enix also has the same image for you to download as a wallpaper in the official Japanese site of Type-0.

Spoiler or not I'm pleased to have heard that Type-0 is pretty much the Final Fantasy many people have been waiting for years, that alone reignite my interest for this game.

Dark Souls ships 1.5 million worldwide

I guess we are going to more souls in the future with this numbers. And I'm not saying that as a bad thing, Dark Souls kicked my ass but if From Software takes around three years to do another one everyone will be ready for more masochist-RPG action.

This game wouldn't be shat on so much if it wasn't being called a Devil May Cry game.

Exactly, this is the same thing that has been happening with the Silent Hill games since Origins. But a name sells more than an actually good product, just look at how Shadows of the Damned (and to some extension) Vanquish ended.

So they are basically saying that this is a spin-off? Dunno, but Devil May Cry never really had a coherent story outside of maybe the first and third games, and saying that the anime is canon is just weird... every game in the series shows a different incarnation of Dante and the unverse since the franchise has been in the hands of so many people over the years with each new game. I never understood how all of the games and anime were well connected to each other, it doesn't even make that much sense, yeah I know video games, but still.

For all I care though (which is a lot with this series for me) the original DMC is the only one I truly like even if I really enjoyed DMC3 for months when I played it a couple of years ago.

But about DmC, the only "big problem" I have with it is that some of the staff at Ninja Theory thinks (or thought) that DMC was a about fashion and pop culture references. Dude, DMC is a hacked version of RE Code Veronica.

Really? I did the exact same thing. I'm still playing it though, but I plan to do the NG++ a few days after the patch comes out.

And besides Uncharted 3 came out so I should relax a little bit shooting dudes. :p

Edit: OK, I'm done with the second playthrough. The so called true ending is way better than the one I got before and with all the things that happens with the characters you met throughout the game (which are pretty damn melancholic and depressing by the way) this ending makes sense, at least to me. But most of the story and ending(s) are left to the interpretation of the player so who knows.

People is still trying to understand if some of the characters like Solaire for example is more important to the story than it seems at first glance.

Also text changes:

The bonfire was lit -> Bonfire lit

No more broken english. *sad face*

Now that you say that, I always wanted to play the hardest difficulty on the original DMC but by the time the game came out I barely was able to pass the first few levels. Years later and after a lot of hard games played I think I'm ready to play the Dante Must Die mode.

Someday I'll have to get the PS2 out of the closet. :O Capcom should really sell the remastered version of each of these games on PSN and XBLA though.

Played the demo and the only thing I can say is that I haven't had this much fun with a Sonic game since Adventure 2 on GameCube.

Kinda scary to see that Sega finally got their shit together.

As long as they fix the darn Darkmoon glitch I'll be happy. Blue Eye Orb never works despite being invaded multiple times during attempts by people with high sin rankings; and I have yet to get a single summon from the ring. :-\

It can take a while to get summoned but the ring works fine, I've been in more invasions in the Darkmoon covenant than the one of the Forest.

I finally got the last Souvenir of Reprisal yesterday. Getting 10 of this things is pretty damn hard.

Edit: Dark Souls 1.04 Patch Notes - Major balance changes, game changes, bug fixes, etc. Also, what the fuck.
4169  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: November 01, 2011, 07:45:33 PM
The last chapter on UC2 is the weakest part of the whole game for me. It feels rushed, but the ending makes it worth the trouble.
4170  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls on: November 01, 2011, 07:36:15 PM
There's a pretty cool dynamic theme on PSN at $2.99 on PSN right now.

Dark Souls patch incoming tomorrow!!Lots of balance issues and co-op issues are being fixed. I'm excited.

My body is ready! I hope they put a list with the changes too.

Also, now I can go and do the final boss and finish the game to see the other ending, but I still have some things that I want to get and getting platinum in this game is pretty easy compared to Demon's Souls that can take easily more than 4 playthroughs thanks to the convoluted tendency system and the drop rate of some items. Arguably the hardest trophy to get in Dark Souls is the "Knight's Honor" one and that can take 2 to 3 playthroughs. Thank God there's no "collect all the rings" trophy this time.
