Well everyone, my luck has run out. I was trying to power through my phantoms, starting with Alien ISO. I was just playing, got booted to XMB and when I tried to restart, it was locked, followed by all my other phantoms.

 

So. I need an Alien ISO rental.

 

Also: the headache thing is a joke. I've had FAR less issues with sharing with this community than I have in another forum where access is gated. People turn this into what they want it to be. If you're here trying to be a business man and turn a profit, you're going to have headaches. If you're here trying to play games and be a part of the community....I imagine those headaches are very, very few and far between.

That is scary as hell. Looks like it's just me and iwarboy left.

 

JUST THE TWO OF US WE CAN MAKE IT IF WE TRY (maybe.. probably not)

I was actually being sarcastic about it. The :dunce: is as close to a tinfoil hat as I could find. The End is Near was called by him though. I picture him eating his hot pockets with a smug look on his face right now.

 

In all seriousness. I started doing less and less sharing once I seen the rapid growth of shares happening via ebay and social networks like Twitter. It was just a matter of time before it went from a good thing to a profit thing for 3rd world citizens. 

I still remember the days when there was a big debate between keeping the community close-knit or openly sharing the information publicly. The argument of the latter train of thought was that without fresh blood, the community would thin and die out. The argument presented by the former group was, well, something like what's happening right now would happen.

 

I was on the fence back then, but in retrospect, I wish we were a little more discreet with the phantom process. Those ebay listings are sickening.

 

This is why we can't have nice things.

 

On that note, anyone selling some cheap PS4 phantoms? Looking to do some testing so the cheaper the better.

I'm noticing a disturbing trend from people who disconnected their ps4s to avoid getting their phantoms locked. It seems to increase your chances of it happening if you do so. Perhaps after an extended period of being offline, when you connect to the internet again, the system checks all of your licenses to see if they are still active. This is only a theory..

I'm gonna be broke for the foreseeable future. I don't have a job right now so any money I can get my hands on I have to live on until I can find a new one.

 

Oh and because life is so fair, the universe counters the fun of being unemployed by taking my grandfather from me. Yeah I'm really enjoying my life right now.

Condolences. Losing a family member is definitely rough. I was in a similar position last year. It does get better.

Anyone for some Garden Warfare? The game is a lot more fun than I expected. Reminds me of TF2.

I'm really glad Raiborg is backing off. He was about to uncover the biggest gamesharing conspiracy of this generation. So many of us veterans are involved.. it's too big for one man to stop. I've already said too much..

Really ticked :|

 

Pretty sure the BF4 + Premium (PS4) account I owned (resell) is gone.

 

Password has been changed, no one knows who hosted, no one knows who the PS3 resells are and I'm basically out a good $40-$50 ($20 PS4 Phantom and $30 PS4 Resell )

 

Think it's the last time I'll engage in a cross-buy group simply because there are too many people that have access to the account. It's also another reason to start buying physical I suppose 

 

Just sucks that some douche bag decided to steal the account and make a quick buck off it

 

 

 

Usuyami sold me the share back in may. He also sold a phantom slot back in January to Crashlen0 He seems to be the main share holder, I've pm'ed him.

 

The password had pancakes in it for some reason, I pm'ed him & he says he didn't host, and has never used outlook for hosting.

 

Someone owns the bf4everr@outlook.com - so I'm guessing they used that to stop any recovery attempts

 

Going back, I don't know how usuyami got the share. He does buy a group for a bf4 share here

 

 

Actually, I just found it:

 

https://www.cheapass...post&p=11275390

 

Battlefield 4 + Premium $112.50 (Amazon bundle + $10 upgrade)
 
PS4 Resell $22.50+15 - Usuyami PAID
 
PS4 Phantom $10+2 - jjay9225 PAID
 
PS3 Resell #1 $10+15 - wpress PAID
PS3 Resell #1 $10+15 - ericpol PAID
 
PS3 Phantom #1 $5+1.50 - Teh Reaper PAID
PS3 Phantom #2 $5+1.50 - captaintek3304 PAID

 

Oh boy. This reminds me why I didn't let you into the library back when I ran it. Your accusations are like those of a spoiled, impatient child. You post here at 6:35PM, three whole minutes after you sent me a message telling me the password didn't work.

 

Coincidentally, the two current PS3 resells (Mystique and ericpol) messaged me together yesterday asking for help with the same thing. Resetting the password took a minute and I was happy to help. They understand how the system works. A reliable host can always recover an account. I have hosted dozens of groups and I take pride in being a dependable host. And like Pravado said, there is ALWAYS a paper trail. We have some very capable members who can trace any share back to its origins. So the absolute worst thing that can ever happen to an account is someone phantoming the resells after 6 months and stealing the shares temporarily. Unfortunately, that does happen but an account should never be lost permanently.

 

Now I know I didn't change the password, and I really don't think Mystique and ericpol changed the password, so ironically that leaves you as the person who most likely changed it (the first time). It seems awfully convenient that you contact me the very day after I recover the account.. 

 

See how easy it is to throw accusations around?

Pretty late but I'm playing through Darksiders 2 (about 4 hours in) and it's a pretty great game. Reminds me of Zelda but with more RPG elements. Such a shame that there will likely never be a third Darksiders.

You people making me work like an unpaid worker.

I see how it is. 

FTFY.

 

Played and beat Beyond: Two Souls over the weekend. Game was pretty disappointing.. overly dramatic and felt a little dragged out. It's a decent experience but not worth playing more than once imo. I'm just glad I'm not going for trophies anymore. Time to move to the next game in my backlog!

 

If you're interested, Beyond: Two Souls is available for borrowing in the library thanks to micbelt.

Here's the list, I think we missed everyone between Sept.15th and today....
PS4 MASTER RACE - Updated as of Sept.15.2014

Spoiler

I'm not on this list and I've had my PS4 since Day 1. :(

Congrats!!!! :D

Ooo ok cool story bro, no one cares about trophies, they're just for show and bragging rights, they bring forth no real-world value.

 

 

 

Jk, Jk.

Awesome work bud, wish to get there some day. but I only want to plat games I like, not really bent on "Gotta Plat-em All" 

but that is pretty cool that it landed exactly on 10,000. haha looks so surreal.

I don't normally care about this stuff, but I actually think it's super fucking cool that the FF14 plat was your 10,000. Good job bro

Thanks guys!

 

Grats, FF14 is probably the best game I've ever played, had to put it down because I was playing it too much. I hope plat'n it didnt gimp your experience, that would be a damn shame if it did. 

It didn't! Two friends and I bought the game together so it was incredibly fun going through the entire game with buddies. Then we joined a 4th friend's post-game free company and went through all the post-game content (which was ridiculously fun). The worst part was probably grinding 1000 fates, since I was playing SCH and no one really bothers with FATEs unless they're ATMA hunting these days. It was also pretty annoying remembering to do and then having to wait for the Levequest Allowances. But overall, I am very happy FF14 was my milestone (and last planned) trophy. I spent hundreds of hours in FF11 (which I also thoroughly enjoyed) and I can safely say FF14 improved on all the weaknesses of its predecessor.

Hey guys, so excited to say that I've finally hit my 10,000th trophy! Of course, I had to pick a really grindy platinum to finish off half a decade of trophy hunting, but I'm glad I picked a series that played a major role in my childhood. I had a lot of fun over the past 5 years and I also played a lot of terrible games, grinding hours on end for some really unentertaining trophies. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't.

 

It is with absolute relief that I can finally start playing video games again purely for the fun, exploration, and story; without having any of that being spoiled by first checking a trophy guide and then following a walkthrough to ensure I don't miss any collectibles and having to play an extra play-through.

 

I'll be staying on the same account so my trophy completion rate will plummet, but I don't really care. Time to catch up on some games I skipped because the platinum was too hard! See you guys around. :)

Everyone just needs to simma down and smoke a "jay"

Love this comment because it's both my name and my favourite pastime :)

 

I know I only drop in every once in a while now... but this place hasn't changed a bit. And I'm really happy about that. When video games were my lifeblood, this place was my lifeblood. One day, I'll look back on this point of my life and the highlight of it all would be the many evenings spent gloriously hunting for trophies while talking about some nonsense here and getting excited for the next, greatest game ever. I've spent tens of thousands of hours on games. Maybe wasted, but that only depends on who you ask. I enjoyed (almost) every moment of it and it was only possible because of this great community. I am grateful to have had the chance to play and experience hundreds of different games at such an affordable budget. So I hope this community, with all it's quirky characters, stick around for as long as possible because once this great gamesharing era of ours ends (and it surely will), I know I'll miss it.

 

And then it'll be back to paying full price for games or dealing with microtransactions. Ugh...

 

Anyway, I'm busy tripping on LSD over here so keep living the dream for me <3

Yo, big shoutout to iwarboy for hooking me up with a free share of Destiny. Thanks man.

 

Probably gonna make a new account to play games for fun while I chase the 10,000th trophy on this account. Let's form a clan or something. :)

I thought you retired? or are you retiring after 10,000?

After 10,000.

 

The plan is as follows:

 
Shank/Gravity Crash - one trophy

Uncharted 2 DLC - two trophies

Assassin's Creed 4 DLC - two trophies

Batman: Arkham City DLC - six trophies

Final Fantasy XIV - five trophies

 

Total: 16 trophies to go!

 

I spent the last five years trophy hunting. I can't wait to finish this chapter of my life and start playing video games for fun first and foremost again. No more grinding trophies that aren't fun. Ain't got time fo dat shit no mo.

 

Will probably still plat games I really enjoy though. :)
