    Mine has become loud as well, but 27degreesC+ temperatures may have something to do with that. I cleaned it out recently, too, but it didn't help at all.

    Anyway, taking it apart isn't hard, if you're feeling up to it and may help it live longer.

    just got the Last of us plat, very good game, fairly time consuming platinum, played through the game 3 times, and spent a fair bit of time on the mp tophys.

    Maybe I'll try to clean it so. I've had a slew of almost magically timed break-downs lately. After 5 or 6 years of use, my Mac mini refused to boot, my laptop glitched up completely and even my router stopped powering up. All within two days of each other.

    I got a new Mac mini, new router and an iPad, so if I have to go buy another PS3 right near the end of the cycle, that will be the last hit my wallet can take this side of Christmas. I'll give it a shot dominalien.

    uk-kob: I haven't done the last 4 online trophies yet. How long would you say they take? Are they difficult?

    The MP trophies on TLoU are more time consuming than hard. But as long as you're playing the MP because you enjoy it, and not specifically because of the trophies attached, then it isn't bad at all.
    Something like 168 games if you don't get unlucky and lose 100% because of connection issues with the host. I'm sure people play more games than that in a day on CoD or Halo. :-P

    @Telepathic.Geometry
    No they aren't hard, just be careful to save the easy challenges, like mark 6 enemies or execute 3 enemies, for the 100% threat events, for the 2 journey trophies survivors and fireflies, you just have to complete week 12 with some people left in your group.
    it takes around 30 hours, for both 12 week journeys.

    Sorry for asking annoying questions but, is it like I'm Joel, and someone else is playing my bro, or Ellie or something? And I've gotta keep my buddies alive against, what, bots? Other players?

    Ah, never mind, I'll give it a shot later on and see what's what. Cheers man...

    @Telepathic.Geometry
    don't worry it will make sense once you start playing mp, it sounds a lot more complicated than it actually is.
    this is from the trophy guide on ps3 trophies.

    "The online portion of this game is called "Factions". You start by having to align yourself to either the Firefly or Hunter faction. This alignment is permanent until you either complete the multiplayer journey with that faction or your clan gets wiped out and you fail. The multiplayer can be a little confusing at first but you can mostly just play normally if you want to and not worry about other things except the missions that pop up."

    I switched on God of War III when I got back from the city, and spent literally hours avoiding Stoned, cleaning and studying and surfing, all the while thinking of the hassle of this last trophy...

    ...and I got it first time. Easily. 0_@

    Ping. God of War III in the bag.
    Next, Limbo and Prince of Persia.
    And maybe that last trophy from the Castlevania DLC...
    ^_^

    Actually, quick question for all you fellow trophy hunter/whores.

    Do you ever find that you have gaming moments where you simply can-not fail? Like your brain clicks into a different gear, where you're like Neo, seeing the lines of code inside the matrix?

    That happened for me today, but also happened for me when I got the Lumines Dig Down, and the 210 lines in three minutes. Or years ago, playing Rez on the Dreamcast, or Guitar Hero on PS2...

    ...it's a grand feeling.

    In the zone, yeah...

    Wouldn't go as far as to say like Neo, seeing all lines of code and shit, not without help anyway, but yeah, so focused that it's just... Instinct.. I suppose...

    Makes me sound like a right queer....

    Well, I think that focus is something we often underestimate. For a game like Demon's Souls for example, focus is the only thing standing between you and victory in most cases. And when you've got it, it's like you're untouchable.

    I strongly believe that the older generation of gamers who've been at it for 25 years or more have learned focus from the old school games, where even a tiny misjudgment in the timing of a jump to beat Sandman in Megaman 1, or measuring he distance of a jump in Star Wars on the SNES was the difference between life and death...


    ...and I'm rambling again.

    I tend to only get in the Zone on racing games - playing Gran Turismo, having virtually no memory of the laps I've raced, but constantly getting faster and faster times.

    WipEout does it to me as well.

    I have been known to repeatedly die on something only to do it first time the day after without ever been in danger.

    I do not think I am particularly good at games. I am just very patient. Recent FPSs for instance require very little skill even on the hardest settings as health recovers. And RPGs like Dark Souls can be overcome by grinding if necessary.

    I know people that if they die on something 3 times in a row they complain it is too hard. I tend to be the opposite and sometimes feel cheated unless I die 10 times. (50+ times on tekken tag 2's Unknown however was too much).

    Same. This happens to me so much that I sometimes plan for it. I guess it's a combination of your brain working on it when you're sleeping or carrying out mundane tasks at home or at work, and the physical element of you just being energetic and alert.

    Same here too. A good friend of mine gave up on Castlevania at the Ice Titan saying it was bullshit, and he wouldn't have gotten that far if we hadn't been taking turns... And that was on easy.

    I think that kids are very much the same. In life, as soon as something presents a challenge, they give up immediately, and have to be either seduced into working hard by making it fun, bribed into it with rewards or threatened with punishment.

    Some adults are that way too. The delay of gratification is one of the best things you can learn from gaming I think, as it has benefits everywhere in your personal life.

    This exact thing happened to me today - I spent half an hour this morning attempting to get a very tricky Power Cell on Jak & Daxter, without joy. Sat on the train this evening - did it first time :D

    I sat for a few hours straight trying to do the 'Beat Zico' trophy. When it eventually popped, I had no idea what time it was or how long I was playing the game for.

    Rez is the most in the zone I've ever been. In my DC days I managed to 100% every level, and my eyes seemed to stop blinking throughout, as when I had finished, my face was covered in tears and my eyes hurt...

    ...might have just been tears of joy from playing one of the most truly amazing and immersive game experiences ever though. Hmm.

    Ding!

    #11 - Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy.

    Not that tough. My main issue was simply that the game hasn't aged well...

    On PSNProfiles, that was my fastest platinum I think. ^_^

    And I think that that game has aged really well. Jak II though... :/

    Got my 11th plat for Deadly Premonition: Director's Cut last month and my 12th plat, just now, for Killzone 3. That bloody Completist trophy (destroy everything on the MAWL) was the only one I really had trouble with...

    Just finished getting the Platinum and the 100% on Payday: The Heist. 3 weeks worth of blood, sweat and tears on this bastard has paid off. Great game. If you haven't already picked this up on PS+, do it now!

    I already had the platinum on Castlevania, but now I have the 100% too. Working on Deus Ex: The Missing Link now too. Very nice little bit of DLC... Holding off on using my augs for the no weapons, no praxis run. Once I have that I'll be back to fuck everybody up with hacking, invisibility and double take-downs... ^-^

    @Telepathic.Geometry - I persevered with that one for a long time, but I never got close on some on the Death Mode levels. WAaaaayyyy to tough for me.

    I haven't managed a single death mode trophy. Not sure they're physically possible for mortals to acquire.

    I've got 6 of them. So far, they're not much fun, because no matter how skilfully you play the hand you're dealt, most of the time the distribution of notes is unwinnable, which I regard as basically broken game design.

    They should have made sure in game testing that every random distribution was at least possible for an expert. I reckon I'll beat Death mode, but considering how much I enjoyed the campaign, I'll never want to see Death mode again.
