Dragon’s Dogma Dark Arisen. Tis excellent but does have it’s flaws. Am 35ish hours in and just past the halfway mark. I’ve only completed it once and DD knows how to do boss battles. Every creature battle is excellent and dragons battles are done correctly. Instead of hacking and slashing, you have to use a lot of tatics. That pretty much applies to most of the game. Not attempting Dark Arisen untill i’m level 90 as it’s tough. I mean, when i say tough, i’m talking Dark Souls level of tough on steroids with more steroids on top. Would recommend it to those who love hack and slash and RPGs.13/01/14 at 23:38 #209535MuskyyParticipant
I’m currently grinding out BF4 to get the multiplayer trophies. Only need 3 more for the plat, which are the 5 plants in Obliteration, win a match in every game mode, and get 45 kills with the M1911 pistol. I’m really enjoying it.14/01/14 at 10:23 #209551
Just dipping into a bit of FIFA 14 on PS4 each evening to get the 15% achievements for the Pro. It’s a great mode, that is sadly often ruined by wannabe-Messi’s who do nothing but dribble (and eventually lose the ball) rather than pass. Or others who think it’s funny to be the GK and just bring him out-field. I’ve been scoring once every other game which isn’t too bad. It’s the last online trophy I need, then it’s just a few Career, goals, and Skill Challenge trophies for the plat (hopefully). Then I’ll probably go back to Killzone Shadow Fall.14/01/14 at 10:57 #209556GTOWNParticipant
Don’t Starve has grabbed my attention as has Minecraft and Battlefield 4. I’m bloody useless at FPS but its not too bad. I need help and tips for staying alive though as I die. A lot.14/01/14 at 13:30 #209577Tony CawleyParticipant
Youles you should join the TSA pro club mate for your fifa fun! If you want those achievements let’s go it together!14/01/14 at 13:32 #209578Tony CawleyParticipant
In fact I’m sure you’re in the club already aren’t you?15/01/14 at 09:31 #209624
@tony – yes, I’m in the club already and got the 15% Achievements trophy last night. Amusingly, the trophy is named “On Your Way” and it “plinged” just as I got sent off, lol! For a second I thought I actually got a trophy for being sent off. The second yellow was an absolute joke, bloody cheatie FIFA! Anyhow, I’d still be up for a few matches this evening between 8-9pm if you’re about? Not sure if you’ve already got it but you need to win a game in Pro Clubs so I’d be happy to assist. Myself and Taylor Made won a match with the club a couple of evenings ago.
I’m actually doing pretty well so far…..I got the trophy after 9.5 games (including the sending off), so my stats say I’ve played 9 games, scored 8 (inc 1 Hatrick), and got Man of the Match 3 times. Usually I suck but it seems my positional work off the ball is paying dividends this season! :)15/01/14 at 11:12 #209667
I’m half way through my work at the moment and I’d though I’d take a rest and treat myself by starting The Last of Us. It really is marvellous. I jumped in to the multiplayer too and that’s got me hooked now as well. I like how the multiplayer forces teamwork, staying into small groups to cover each others back. I only played an hour and I was already becoming a valuable player in the team. I can’t wait to jump back in to the game later on.15/01/14 at 11:30 #209675freezebug2Participant
I’ve been playing through PSN’s Giana sisters Twisted dreams, one of the most difficult platformers I’ve played in a long time but easily one of the best. Got it free with plus a while back and thought it needed an airing, pretty addictive after getting through the learning curve. I’ll never 100% trophy the game but it’s great fun getting as far as possible!15/01/14 at 16:14 #209700ron_mcphattyParticipant
I’ve just finished Spyro The Dragon, very refreshing to play a simple game for fun without worrying about trophies! Now though I’m diving back into Sleeping Dogs and going for the platinum. This morning before work I spent half an hour driving around all the clothes stores trying to find the one niggly shirt or watch I missed… Then realised I hadn’t missed anything and got the bloody fashion victim trophy in December :P15/01/14 at 18:04 #209713Lyts1985Participant
@Avenger, The Last of Us multiplayer completely surprised me, I was expecting a tacked on mode that’d annoy the hell out of me on my way to platinum but it’s actually VERY good! One of the few multiplayer modes I’ve thoroughly enjoyed for a long time!16/01/14 at 01:05 #209766
Yeah that’s the impression I got as well. It’s certainly different, and very refreshing multiplayer experience. I figured out the features and I reckon I’ll be playing it for a while now.16/01/14 at 08:48 #209778
@Avenger – if you’ve got any desire to make it to the 12 weeks, to make it easier on yourself you should leave the easier challenges (when your group are at 100% risk of being wiped-out) until the latter weeks…to avoid having to start all over again! The easier ones are crafting items and gifting items. Also, you should note that each time you complete a challenge (killing/crafting/reviving/gifting etc) that the number required will go up, and after the second or third use of the same challenge it will go up significantly.
My advice, so long as you’d rather survive the distance than build a massive group of survivors, would also to be to use the challenges that are really hard or that you think you might fail when you’ve got the challenge to increase your group. It means you won’t grow your survivors but it means you can save the achievable/easier challenges for when your survivors are at risk.
It’s a great multiplayer – the only reason I haven’t gone back to it is because I think ND might patch in trophies retrospectively with the last MP DLC, like they did with Unchartered 3 – therefore I didn’t want to over-play it just yet, as I’d probably go back to it to try and get some of the trophies if they put them in. That said, I could be tempted to have a few games if you fancied, since I’ve not tried the new maps or that new Demolition-style game mode?

Yes, I’ve noticed that about the challenges. I’ve been taking the ‘down so many’ tasks for now but I’m already in week 2 and the number required is going up. I’m not sure what kind of issues I’ll encounter with survivors. At the moment the number of survivors keeps going up and I’m finding enough supplies and killing enough people so far. Thanks for the advice because I’d like to go the full 12 weeks with both factions if possible to get the platinum. I’ll try going for the tougher ones and giving myself a challenge; it makes sense.
I’d like to meet up for a few games online, although I haven’t got any DLC at the moment. This said I’m liking the game a lot, and I’m pondering on buying the season pass seeing as I got TLOU relatively free with my PS3. I’m going to look up the current DLC content today to check it out.16/01/14 at 10:40 #209781
Ok mate, would be happy to jump in for a few games anyway but all the better if you have the DLC as the maps – they can get repetitive playing up to 24 weeks. With regards to the season pass, there is one map pack already out; the single-player DLC is due on 14th Feb; and there is more multiplayer DLC coming (but not sure what it is – could just be maps, but possibly more knowing ND).
Assuming you’re a fairly consistent player, your group should eventually level out as it’s basically a reflection of your average XP/Supplies earning. If you do want to survive the 12 weeks then I definitely recommend keeping some of the low scoring Downs challenges for a bit later on and use the harder challenges early on (better to fail a challenge early on and repeat a few weeks rather than 10 or so if you do fail). But definitely use the hardest challenges when given a challenge to grow your group – I think I went for Shiv kills as they can be awkward to get sometimes – so that there’s no Survivors lost if you do fail. Just my advice of course. ;)
