@KAIRU Yeah, once you get a certain length into your own game then it's normally your own stupidity that lets you down. My best one I had a main base with a pen for the buffalo to harvest the poop from, solid walls and then loads of traps set up to protect me from the demon dogs. And then little outposts set up around the map for when I ventured further afield.

Another tip is putting the traps for the rabbits just above the holes. It seems to have a much better success rate of catching them than just scattering them about.

@Thrillho Yeah, the traps above the rabbit holes is usually my go-to strategy for catching them.

I’ve never really gotten far enough into the game where I’ve actually gotten a proper base set up. Usually I’m too busy trying not to, well, starve. 😅

@Kidfried I laughed anyway. That calibre of crossover would definitely get me to try MK

@KAIRU My “not starving” strategy;

  • Loads of traps to catch rabbits. Put live rabbits into crates at your base. Normally at least two that are full.
  • Collect as much poop as you can to build farms and fertilise berry bushes you’ve picked up.
  • Have two crockpots built so you can have food cooking while you go out exploring for the day. Try looking at some online calculators for what combos produce what. Fish sticks are great for health! (And can use twigs to make)
  • Save as much of the above as you can for winter. Building a thermometer can help you predict when that’s coming.

I m normally survive off berries and carrots for the first few days until I have a base set up with the above all to try and get through that first winter, while also getting some armour and weapons together for that first “invasion”.

@Thrillho Thanks for sharing this! I’ll have to give it a go next time I’m playing.

I've made quite a lot of progress in Persona 4 Golden and am now at the Void Quest dungeon to go get Mitsuo Kubo.

Having only played the PS2 release I didn't actually know about the Scooter assists so when Yosuke suddenly spoke up after a critical hit to do a follow up attack (and he wasn't in my party) I thought the game had glitched... At least until he suddenly rammed right into a shadow on his scooter.

Golden really cranks up P4's goofiness huh?

@HallowMoonshadow Glad you’re enjoying P4G, it’s a gem. It’s one of those games that I look back on fondly, but don’t plan to play again because there’s parts of it that do drag on. As is the case for the series anyways. 😄

I started MediEvil as a bit of Halloween related fun, but I'm actually enjoying it more than I thought I would. It's tricky, but not off-puttingly so, with an endearing, knockabout sense of humour.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

Seeing the very good reviews for Talos Principle 2, I decided to try the first one and I like it so far.
Not too difficult for now but I imagine it gets more complicated and there seems to be quite a lot of puzzles to solve.

@Voltan One of my favourite puzzle games! What’s brilliant is how it lets you truly solve the puzzles in your own way. Beyond that, the philosophical engine that drives the whole thing is very compelling. Hope you enjoy!

Speaking of Persona and enhanced versions any interest on your end for Persona 3 Reload @Th3solution? Seems like they've added a few things such as new events for all the male members of S.E.E.S and I have to admit, it does look rather nice too.


Ha great minds think alike as I also started playing it for some Halloweeny fun @Gremio108. I suppose you've finished it by now right? Hope you still enjoyed it!

I just popped the platinum for it over the weekend.

@HallowMoonshadow I don’t know. Right now I have no plans to play Reload, but I’ve been impulsive with my game playing lately so it’s possible. My backlog is enormous, but that hasn’t stopped me from buying new games and playing them right away.

It been some years since I finished P3. The series used to be one of my favorites, but after P5, I haven’t felt like going back to it. As far as JRPGs go, I’ve been riding the Final Fantasy wave more. Maybe I’m part of the problem, but I haven’t felt compelled by old-school JRPGs recently. And I’m a little off-put that they have been recycling older Persona games and adding expansions (to already really long games, mind you) rather than giving us anything about a true proper next installment in the series. Persona 5 came out in 2016, so like what — over 7 years ago — and we have no info about Persona 6. Instead they keep iterating the old games and porting them all over the place instead.

I don’t mind remakes, remasters, and meaningful expansions. But at some point there needs to be something new.

Sorry, that turned more into a rant than I had planned. 😅 But I know you catch my meaning. At the end of the day, there’s so much other output that I have been happy to just ignore the franchise for a while. Meanwhile Final Fantasy is churning out new content like crazy, even if it’s newly styled action based gameplay. And other developers have taken up the mantle of putting out retro styled JRPGs, like Sea of Stars, all the Tales games, all the Legend of Heroes games, Octopath, etc., etc.

So tell me how you REALLY feel Sol lol

No worries I totally get you (Especially as a lapsed Pokémon fan). We all go through different phases and gaming wants.

There is Metaphor: ReFantazio which should be coming out next year by Atlus which looks Persona-y but a more fantasy-esque setting so... There is that if you change your tune and want a more traditional turn based affair.

At least with Persona 6 they haven't announced it like 5 years in advance before it finally, eventually comes out like what happened with Persona 5!

@HallowMoonshadow It’s a fine line, for sure, as far as announcing a game too far in advance. And realistically, I think there’s little doubt that Persona 6 is cooking, but it’s just been so long that it’s easy to lose interest. I have no doubt that when details are released it will kickstart the hype, but until then we’ll just stick with the remakes and alternates. I hadn’t heard of Metaphor: ReFantazio but I’ll keep my eyes peeled on that one. I never did finish Trails of Cold Steel, so I could always drop back into that quagmire. 😅 I was discouraged enough by the less than stellar impressions of the second game that I put it on the back burner. ToCS 3 and 4 have received more consistent praise, but I’m not sure how I feel about spending another 150 hours to finally get to the good stuff.

Finally back on the gaming horse after nearly a half-year break. Gravity Rush Remastered and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Final Bar Line; one before work, the other after. Those platinum trophies will be mine!

@HallowMoonshadow Golden makes a few needed changes. One thing I didn't like about it is how much easier the difficulty curve feels, though. I played through some of P4 on my PS2 years after Golden and have a considerably harder time with it.

Honestly that massive wait with my hype for Persona 5 building to stupid levels is probably what poisoned the well for me so much when I eventually played it @Th3solution (A me problem for sure but I do hold legit criticisms about it too and not just vitriol i swear )

So the fact P3 Reload (Which I'm totally getting as P3 is my favourite) will only have a 7/8 month or so media cycle hopefully they'll do something similar with P6 and not announce anything til it's nearly out...

As for Metaphor: ReFantazio it was announced at an XBox event 5 or so months back that also revealed P5 Tactica and P3 Reload. The trailer looks pretty neat.

As for Cold Steel? I've just given up on it. No desire to go back myself. It was kinda crazy to go from Cold Steel 1 straight into 2 and I definitely suffered some burnout but... I still didn't like most of the choices they made even then

Oh I DEFINITELY agree on the difficulty for Persona 4 Golden being way too easy @Ralizah.

I mean for starts Shadow Yukiko has a weakness! She was an absolute beast in vanilla P4. Kicked my ass at least a couple of times back in the day.

Plus I took Shadow Mitsuo down without him ever getting to rebuild the 8 bit shell again which is wild too.

Plus the new shuffle time mechanics with sweeps, Persona level up and skill level ups can easily break the game (I got 4 Level up cards in a row somehow in one run).

I've honestly been thinking of bumping it up... Maybe even up two notches as it's been a cakewalk on normal.

I've also never played Gravity Rush. In fact my only experience with Kat is Playstation All Stars mostly and the demo for the second game.

Hope that and Final Bar Line don't have any really stupid requirements for you in order to the platinums!

@HallowMoonshadow I have to admit that I mostly ignore the XBox (and Nintendo) events and announcements. But now that I look at it, I do remember a buzz about whether it would be XBox exclusive as the trailer suggests, until it leaked that it was slated for PlayStation as well.

The trailer looks good and sure does look like it could even be called “Persona 6”. It probably coming late next year so maybe by then I’ll be back in the mood for something in that genre

I'm excited for Metaphor: ReFantazio. A brand new, big-budget Atlus JRPG IP? Sign me up. Those don't come out too often.

@HallowMoonshadow Difficulty balancing is an issue with recent Persona games. P5 was ridiculously easy on the highest difficulty setting, and the same is truer of P5R. Which is too bad, because, unlike you, I consider it to be one of the best JRPGs ever made otherwise. Top three game from Atlus.

My ideal is P5R, but with SMT V difficulty balancing, where it's very challenging on the hardest difficulty, but not complete BS like Nocturne was.

Oh god, I love Gravity Rush. It was one of my primary reasons for getting a PS Vita. It's obviously not as impressive on a PS4 as it was on a Vita, but the heady rush of excitement I get from the game's gravity shifting antics and wild mid-air combat encounters is still there. And the gorgeous music, and the neat, surrealistic environments, and the cool motion comic-esque cutscenes... it's still magic.

I maintain my previous position that, no matter how few people played their games, Japan Studio was, far and away, Sony's most exciting first-party developer, and so much of my interest in the brand is gone now that they've been scrubbed from the Earth.

I actually looked at the trophy list before buying Theatrhythm. I suck at rhythm games (despite enjoying them), so I needed to know the plat was achievable for me. There's a few trophies that might take some time, but they all seem doable.
