Console Randomness

Post by coopasonic » Tue Mar 14, 2017 9:39 am

I recently picked up a PS4 specifically to play Horizon Zero Dawn. Because it's how I am I was checking out the trophies to see what I could get which led to me checking out all of my trophies. I owned a PS3 for most of its effective life. My PSN profile shows a whopping 4 games. I have trophies in three of them.

In total I have 51 trophies:
42 of them come from Horizon Zero Dawn.
8 from inFamous
1 from The Show 09
0 from Uncharted 3

I completed Uncharted and Uncharted 2, but I guess those were before trophies were a thing?

By way of contrast, my xbox profile lists achievements for 195 games (22 with a gamerscore of 0 - though there are some demos and windows games listed on there with 0/0)

If you liked Uncharted 1 & 2, definitely get Uncharted 4. It's great and can be found for relatively cheap.

If I'm not mistaken, the PS3 didn't have trophies until a while after it launched and Sony saw how much of a draw they were on the 360. A lot of the early games don't have trophies at all.

What if I was really disliked Uncharted 3? I really liked 2, but 3 never clicked with me. I got tired of the rails after just an hour or two.

I wonder if I just became an open world guy in between 2 and 3?

I have The Last of Us Remastered on top of my birthday list so I expect to be playing that at the end of May.

Yep, looks like you are right.

Sony revealed that starting in 2009, all games released on the PS3 had to have trophies.

I never played Uncharted 3 because I heard the negative reviews, but I would say that Uncharted 4 was a clear step-up from Uncharted 2 (which I loved) and was better than The Last of Us (though with perhaps not as an emotionally investing story).

Both those games have trophies. I should know, because I have a platinum trophy in both. ;)

The only major PS3 game I can remember playing that didn't have trophies was the very first Assassin's Creed. Having said that, I only got a PS3 roughly 2 years into its lifespan. Since then I've gathered 16 platinum trophies, 110 gold, 466 silver, and 2193 bronze.
Insert witty comment here.

Uncharted 1 definitely did not have trophies at release. Uncharted 2 did, however.

They had probably been patched in by the time I played it then.

If these were $5 it would be on my tablet. $70 is WAY too high.

:twisted: ... Ghost Recon Wildlands – Free Trial Available Now ... on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ... ONLY
Ghost Recon Wildlands challenges players to explore a fictional version of Bolivia as they set out to take down the Santa Blanca cartel. If you have yet to step into this huge open world, now’s the perfect time to get your feet wet by downloading a free five-hour trial of the full game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

During your first five hours in Ghost Recon Wildlands, you’ll get full access to the entire massive open world, which can be experienced solo or with up to three of your friends in co-op. Co-op play (which requires PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold) extends to those who own the full game as well as the trial, meaning you can team up with new friends or veteran Ghosts. You’ll also have several options to start dismantling the cartel, as you can head in any direction the minute that your boots touch the ground. Any progress made during the trial will also transfer to the full game, if you decide five hours isn’t enough.

Download the trial from the Ghost Recon Wildlands page on the Xbox Store or PlayStation Store (links in the blog post)

:hand: No Ghost-Recon thread :oops:

Went to play Just Cause 3 on my PS4 today, and my right thumbstick on my second controller won't click. No aiming. I'm using the second controller because the left thumbstick on the first one doesn't detect forward.

Sweet! Was hoping that they would port it, since I rarely play games on my PC anymore.

Six months late to the party, but I bought the 3DO. My roommate bought the Neo Geo:
$649 in 1991 equals $1,195.77 in 2018.

At least 3DO games were normal price. Neo Geo games cost as much as other consoles!

And i still bought it!

I did have the definitive version of Fifa and Road Rash was almost worth the price of admission.
