Rofl , of all oldies it certainly aint something i'd miss
So will using this disable trophies?
Doubt it. This will be a kind of work around for saves. Reading the description, it only looks to be a Save Editor, not a cheat device. So there's no cause for disabling trophies. You still have to unlock the trophies yourself.
The question is if editing saves will disable trophies, which would work or if they'd mess everything up and get people banned. A simple god mode could ruin so much
so its just for saves? or is it like a code breaker or game shark that mods the game.
it cant actually alter the discs so it edits the save files to modify the code that's loaded up
Freaking sweet if it is true, I hope it supports PSN games. But the download Red Alert 3 game is a pain to beat.
who ruins their experience with this?? i never understood why people used this on the nes
Once ive beat a game it is fun to go back into a game and dominate With some cheats. Replaying that hard boss again with cheats and kickin his butt because he gave you such a hard time before. FUN!!
sure, there is that :)
A lot of us didn't give a damn when we were kids. Things like infinite ammo and infinite lives was just cool. You were unstoppable. I don't use any kind of cheats today.
yeah, i remember going to a friends house when i was younger and he had it, watching him play mega man 3 with the cheats i was like "wow..that is so much easier" lol.
There's a great series on Screwattack, let me check... http://www.screwattack.com/... This is only one of them, but if shows you how some cheats are just banal and fun to try out :D I miss the fact that games these days simply dont have cheat codes, not to make things easer, but to fool around.
Ah, Game Genie. Them Nintendo/Genesis days. xD
Game Genie, Gameshark, Code Breaker, Action Replay...ahhh good old days.. :))
Game genie needs to make a comeback... only if there was a code to hack a game and get the DLC on the disk for free. wait... is that asking too much? LOL
Ahhhhh......game cheats...The good ol days...
is sony actually allowing this? It sounds to me that people would use it to exploit the shit out of trophies. im sure if if you get caught doing it, you will get banned from PSN.
People already exploit the sh*t out of trophies, requires either a hex editor or if you're lazy, the xploder software. Had someone on my friends list jump from level 30 to 44 over night, checked his trophies and the time stamps were virtually identical from the first to the last in each game. Pretty pointless IMO, what happened to the fun in earning them? As for a ban.... Sony don't seem to give a sh*t about the other type of trophy exploiters, why would they care more about this?
i used to be a big fan of the action replay and those kinds of things. not just for the cheat, though i have no problem admitting i did use them to cheat if the game was too hard for me. mostly though they were great for changing up the game. like low gravity, walk on water, flying, and loads of effects that don't necessarily make the game easier, they made the game harder to actually do what you're supposed to in some cases, but they were fun. but a save editor can't give those effects i'm sure. sure it could be used to get past difficult bits in games, but these days i suspect it'll mostly end up being used to get quick trophies.
I wouldn't mind a save editor for single player/campaign modes. Something to give you like infinite health/money. I used to love GameGenie, CodeBreaker & GameShark, for just those things. Will be interesting to do a gamesave edit.
If it works, I might consider buying Demon's Souls again.
