300 hours??? Well, that's a platinum I'll never go for. I don't have time to spend that much time on one single game anymore.

There are a lot of ways you can play the game. The more stuff you kill, the more aggressive the aliens get, ...

 

Wait? What? In what way do they become "more aggressive"? Aren't they always hostile anyway?

 

You are not in combat the majority of the time in Prey.

 

Well, enemies don't usually respawn in the "regular" sense, appears to be based on your actions (eg. pushing the plot forward is a surefire way to have a bunch of new enemies waiting...everywhere), so murdering everything gives some measure of peace, for a while. Some locations do seem too have enemies spawn regularly on entering though (workshop, I think?)

 

 

I may be wrong, but I was under the impression that the amount of enemies that respawn was based on how much stuff you have been killing, as well as other factors.

To be honest, I think it should be doable under 200 - 250 hours, maybe even less. I have spent a lot of time doing stuff which were not needed for platinum trophy. I just like Tales of games a lot, so I enjoy trying out a lot of optional stuff, and sometimes I have some special house rules for my blind playthroughs, like always trying to play on hardest difficulty, even if it means doing some bossfights over and over, until I find a way how to beat them :-P

If you will do only stuff, which is required for Platinum, and don't bother with farming stuff for Cameo Weapons, you should be done much much faster with the Platinum, than me.

How long it took you to Platinum the first Xillia?

Edit: oh, and use for my New Game + in Tales of games only double experience. If you spent grade for 10x experience, you will save crazy amount of time compared to me. I just rather play one good game twice, than two mediocre games once :-P So I never rush :-P

I think it took me 85-90 hours range.

Ok, I have just checked 10x experience NG+ for you. People rushing the game and skipping some skits were able to get the Platinum with 10x EXP under 100 hours O.o

Edit: Xilla 1 for me was around 135 hours, so you can save a lot of time compared to me :-D

I'll say go for ToX2 too ;-)

I've started my work on the final elusive target in HITMAN.  As per usual, I am only doing reconnaissance work at first.  You can't save during an elusive target mission, but you can exit out of the mission and restart provided you didn't die nor did you complete any objectives.  For this particular mission there are 2 objectives:

  1. Kill a target
  2. Retrieve an item

I have managed to locate the target.  Killing the target will be easy.  Killing the target unseen will be a bit harder, but it shouldn't be too much of a problem.  I could snipe the target quite easily, but I would prefer to poison the target, as that is much too delicious a bit of poetic justice for me to pass up.  I have yet to locate the item, though, and I will want to retrieve the item before I make the kill.  Back to snooping around I go.  ;)

My recent pickups/pee-odors are:

Pyre
Sundered
Sonic Mania
The Escapists 2

I feel like I'm missing one... but I will be playing all of them on their release dates. That's all along throughout late July and August.

Losing pretty much every game in Overwatch competitive. Wish I could go Pharah as I'm best at that, but have to deal with some other useless fool going as her or teammates bitching about needing heals/tank but not switching.

Dies Irae, I'm on the Kei route now. It's probably better than average for a VN, but I keep wanting to just rush through it.

Prey, I'm making slow but steady progress. I haven't gotten to the point where alien powers show up yet, I wonder how long it'll be until then.

God Eater Resurrection. Probably the game that's easiest to lose myself in. If I didn't feel obligated to finish the other two first it'd be the only one I was playing right now.

Pee odor? Most cringeworthy thing I've read in a while. Incredible.

Thank you. It was just a joke but I'm glad it had the desired affect on at least one person :)

Valkyrie Profile II is done, including the Seraphic Gate and all it has to offer. I wish one of the characters you get there had a lot of more screen time. I'm almost done with Grandia. I'm almost at the final dungeon. I'm skipping the bonus dungeon with all the best stuff. I can't be arsed to go through it.

 

I'm now playing Gabriel Knight: Sins Of The Fathers 20th Anniversary and I will soon start playing Suikoden III.

Played Fallout 4 for a few minutes tonight for the first time in a while, I have to say, I know that graphics might not be all that matters but damn... those colors pop and it's so nice to look at maxed out in 4k. While FO3/FONV have aged horribly. Last time I played it I could only max the settings in 900p lol Its worth playing now when it's so beautiful I suppose.

I beat Fallout 4 in 18 hours during free weekend on Steam and I honestly feel that it didn't do much for me. As a game, I didn't hate it, but sure was not a good Fallout. It looked decent in some places. I still can't get over the ugly, interface, though.

 

I can still play NV thanks to the game being fun, despite poor graphics.

 

 

If they'd skipped capitalising on the Fallout brand I'd have been far less critical of 'Fallout 4'.  As it stands, it's a fine game in its own right but it does a great disservice to the complexity of the franchise.  Such a shame they turned it into Oblivion 2.0.

He reminded me of the group that is offended by everything, I admit the "pee-odor" may have been childish but in no means was it offensive, just meant as small joke as I was in a funny mood at the moment. As politically-incorrect as the phrase was, it was ultimately harmless.

No more joking though, can't do anything fun these days :( Another apology on my part.

Eh, a bit of juvenile humour is no biggie and I do agree it's an over-reaction to call you a troll over it... But personally I'm tired of seeing terms like SJW thrown randomly, it really feels like it's becoming the present-day Godwin's Law.

Bad joke is a bad joke, but not the reason for the troll comment. In what little I've seen, the poster enjoys forum reaction and wears it like a scribbled badge of honor. Solely my mistake for feeding the troll, however.
