2023.05.30 22:08 coolwali I platinummed Sly Cooper 4: Thieves in Time on VITA to get the secret ending.

Hello everyone. I recently platinummed the PSVITA version of Sly Cooper 4: Thieves in Time as my 28th platinum. It only took me 10 years, 4 weeks, 22 hours to do it. Did you know this game hides its true ending behind the platinum?
Anyway, I'd like to talk about the experience.
Sly 4 was a bit confusing and inconsistent to platinum. I get the feeling the game wants you to platinum it given how on every loading screen it shows you how much you've completed the trophies and collectibles for the game. And that there no missable trophies. But there are some decisions that don't help with that.
So I'd say there are around 3 groups of Trophies in this game.
The first group are the mandatory story trophies. Not much to say about these. There's nothing missable here and the names are quite cool. I do like looking at the percent completion to see how many players completed the PS VITA version of the game. Did you know that around 73% of players booted this game up and completed the prologue? And only around 25% of players even beat the game. The biggest drop happened around the start of Episode 2 since the completion dropped from around 60%to 48% for some reason.
The second group are the trophies for the collectibles and arcades. I'll talk about these later.
The third and final group of trophies are for miscellaneous challenges. I'll start with these first and highlight some of the notable ones that I missed on my first playthrough.
"Crazed Climber - Scale the dragon lair in under 90 seconds". This was one I missed during my original playthrough of the game. This requires you to climb a giant tower filled with traps in the mission "Mechanical Menace". And this one was really fun even though it took me like 3 attempts. Sly 4's movement and platforming is quite fun so having a mini speedrun challenge using Sir Galleth's moveset was a treat. The one criticism I have here is that the game drops a checkpoint as soon as you get to the top. If you haven't gotten the trophy by then and need to retry, you need to quit to the main menu/hideout and reselect the mission, skip through all the cutscenes and get back there which gets annoying. At least the tower is near the start of the mission.
"Ancient Warfare 3 - Crackshot 10 enemies within 65 seconds. Sly's ancestor, Tennessee "Kid" Cooper" has an ability similar to "Dead Eye" from Red Dead Redemption where he can slow down time, mark enemies and objects and then instantly shoot them dead called "Crackshot". I never got this trophy when I first played the game because there wasn't much opportunity to. There aren't large groups of enemies wandering around that you can casually get 10+ of them line up for you to shoot them. Plus, I was already good at shooting them normally. I tried running around in the open world trying to lure enemies but found it wasn't working. There's a mission in the game called "Blind Date" that throws lots of rabbit enemies that chuck TNT at you that worked better for me.
"Hubba Hubba - Don't miss a beat in the Carmelita dance game." This trophy is, without a doubt, the main reason to platinum this game on VITA instead of the PS3. So nobody can see you play this dumb minigame and call you a Furry. This trophy requires you to complete the minigame where Carmilita needs to disguise herself as a belly dancer and dance to distract guards while the Cooper gang try and open a door. You just need to hit the button prompts perfectly. So you can ignore the times the minigame asks you to shake the VITA from side to side like a champagne bottle to make Carmilita shake her ass (seriously, why does this game sexualize Carmilita so much? None of the past Sly games did it).
"Get To the Chopper - Don't take any damage during Up In Smoke." This one was actually fun. In the mission "Up in Smoke", you have to control an RC Helicopter and drop bombs on turrents while drones and mines chase you down. It was fun dodging and weaving through them. There are 3 phases to this mission and you have a checkpoint in between every phase. So if you mess up, you can just restart the checkpoint to the last phase. You don't need to avoid taking damage the whole way through which is nice.
"Unexpected Package - Place 60 bombs in enemy pockets with Bentley." When I first saw this trophy, I groaned. This would be a massive grind. And I had actually made it harder on myself. You see, normally, when you sneak up behind an enemy as Bentley and hold triangle, Bentley will try to put a bomb in the enemy's pocket. Larger enemies won't notice this but smaller enemies will. But the main issue is that I had previously unlocked the Heat Seeking upgrade for Bentley. Meaning sometimes, the bombs would "miss" and stick to an enemy guard's arms or legs instead. So it was annoying going around the hub world and planting bombs on guards.....until I remembered that I had purchased the upgrade for sleep bombs. My plan now was just to find a lone guard on a rooftop, try and place one sleep bomb into his back pocket and detonate it. He'd then fall asleep. Then I'd go to his sleeping body and try placing 5 sleeping bombs in his pocket and back away (the max you can place at any one time). When he wakes him, I'd detonate all 5 which set him to sleep and then repeat. Even if I'd "miss" a few bombs that would stick to their legs instead, I generally 3 or 4 bombs work perfectly. So it didn't take long to get all 60.
"Apollo Wins - Have the perfect workout during the Training Montage." During the mission "Getting Stronger", you have to do a training montage with Bob where you alternate through 6 minigames as you complete them with the minigames getting harder as you complete them. The trophy requires you to complete 10 randomly selected minigames without making a single mistake. If you mess up, you can restart the checkpoint to the beginning of the montage and have to play through a new set of 10 randomly selected minigames. The Minigames are "Slippery Slope" where you balance an egg on a beam using motion controls while penguins jump around on the floating iceberg you are standing on. "Penguin Popper" where Penguins are diving in front of you and you have to play baseball using them. "Sumo Slap" where you have to perform QTEs to push a giant penguin out of a Sumo Ring. "Duck and Cover" where penguins get launched at you from 4 different directions and you have to move the left stick to dodge them. "Super Sling" which requires you to use a catapult to launch a penguin at a flying pterodactyl. And "Whack a chump" which is Whack a Mole but with penguins. Some of which are fake and you should avoid.
Penguin Popper was easy. Once you get the timing down it's easy to get into a rhythm and hit the penguins since they don't vary when they dive. Whenever this popped into the rotation, I considered it a freebie. Sumo Slap was extremly easy. The button mashing was extremely generous. This was another freebie. Duck and Cover requires a bit more focus because of the timing and inconsistent patterns. It's not too challenging. Interestingly, I noticed that the VITA's speakers would reflect if the penguin was coming from the right or left but not above or below you. I guess headphones would make this easier but I had no need for it. I was generally glad when this popped up in the rotation. Whack a Chump was a bit harder than Penguin Popper because there is no set pattern and the additional challenge of not hitting the fake penguins. But it wasn't too bad. I was glad when this popped up in the rotation.
Super Sling and Slippery Slope were the 2 I dreaded and the ones I messed up the most on. Super Sling doesn't give you much indication of where your sling will go. The Pterodactyls have varied speeds so you can't rely on pattern recolonization and reactions. And there's time pressure as taking too long counts as a miss. And it kept popping up in the rotations for some reason!
Slippery Slope was stressful because of the motion controls and how wild later versions of it were.
"The Cooper Open - Have a 20 hit rally with Bentley in each hideout." There are 6 hideouts in the game. In each hideout there is a table tennis table where you as Sly can play a round of table tennis with Bentley. I question the inclusion of it but I suppose it can be a nice distraction. This trophy requires you get a sequences where both you and Bentley hit the ball back and forth 10 times each (or 20 times overall) without missing. And repeat for each of the 6 tables. I found Bentley kept messing up so I had to intentionally hold back and avoid making good shots and try and hit the ball towards him. The main issue is the fact you have to repeat it 6 times. I feel it would be better off just once and as nothing is really added by doing it 6 times. If anything, it's more annoying given the long load times to switch hideouts and Bentley's random AI.
"Hassan Would Be Proud - Pickpocket a full collection of every item in the game." Each of the 6 or so locations have around 3-4 items that can be pickpocketted from guards. The main issue with this trophy is that it doesn't keep track of which items you have already pickpocketed in any way. The game already tracks how many treasures and masks you've found per general area but not pickpocketted items.
I only got this trophy by planning on systematically going through every location in the game and pickpocketting every enemy item and noting down which ones I found.....only to get it in the first level when I used Murray's shake move on some rat enemies. Enemies that you never encounter or have a reason or opportunity to naturally pickpocket. I guess 2013 me had already gotten 99% of these items previously.
"Navigate Like Drake - Take a look at every map in every episode". I found this trophy really annoying. The way it works is that every location in the game, including linear interiors that are exclusive to missions and even the hideouts, have a map you can look at by pressing SELECT. The game doesn't keep track of which locations you've seen the map of. So I had to systamatically play the game from the first mission and press SELECT whenever I entered a new interior. Then quit out and play the next mission and repeat. It popped for me in Episode 4 so somehow, 2013 me had looked at all the maps in Episode 5 without realizing it.
I don't like this trophy. It doesn't really add anything. The player would already be looking at the maps in the hub worlds where they would be at their most useful since those are open world sections. They have no real reason to use the map in linear interiors. And even less useful in hideouts as these aren't even explorable. They are basically just menus that happen to have a 3D background. I'd be more forgiving of this trophy if the map showed collectibles at least. That way, players have more of a reason to use this feature.
Shout out to the Lazy Trunk Spa & Lounge. A secret area in the game that contains a mask collectible and counts for the trophy with a unique map. No mission ever goes here. So even if you were to play diligently and open the map for every area you encounter, you'd still miss this. I only knew this existed because the trophy guide I looked at told me about it so I decided to tag this area while doing the "Get to the Chopper" trophy.
"Hero Tech - Battle with a secret weapon" Once you collect 50 Sly masks. You unlock Ratchet's wrench from Ratchet and Clank. This weapon even turns the coins you collect into bolts. Collecting 60 Masks unlocks Cole's Amp from inFAMOUS. This can electrocute the enemies you hit. I chose to use Cole's Amp to get the trophy as a tribute to inFAMOUS. Killed by Ghost of Tsumia 😭. May it rest in peace. Gone too soon.
That covers all the miscellaneous trophies. Now for the collectibles and arcades.
Sly 4 has a bunch of different collectibles scattered in each of its 6 episodes.
Bottles: Each hub world contains 30 bottles. Collecting all of them gives you access to unlock a safe hidden somewhere in the hub world. Unlocking that safe rewards you a special treasure. Bottles make a "clinking" sound when you're near them so if you're having a hard time finding them, try going into the game's settings and turning down the music and voice sounds. If you find the safe in Episode 3, the special treasure it gives you will highlight bottles and safes in every other episode on your map which is quite nice. I wish the game did this more often. If it hides collectibles from the player, at least give the player an endgame ability to highlight them. It makes it more feasible and fun to complete these tasks instead of combing every last inch (or looking up a guide).
Treasures: Each hub world has around 11 treasures scattered all around. The gimmick here is that in order to collect them, you first need to find where they are in the hub world. Then once you pick them, you need to race back to your hideout under a certain time limit and without taking any damage. If you mess up, you need to repeat the process. The treasures generally require you to have all of Sly's costumes. And a couple require you to be playing as Sir Galleth because England has increased gravity for some reason. Some of these treasures are really well hidden. Requiring you to go to these holes in the middle of nowhere which then require you to switch between some of Sly's costumes. Like, if you open the map when picking some of these up, you'll find Sly is located beyond the borders of the area.
I found it way more fun to race back to the hideout than actually finding them. It was tedious to find many of them because of how well hidden they are. There is no tool or item in the game that can help mark them on your map. Well, I say that. Supposedly, if you have both the PS3 and VITA versions of the game and play them at the same time, you can use the VITA like a scannebinoculars to locate these treasures. And then use the Cross Save feature to nab them in both versions. I only have the VITA version so no luck for me. Again, I'd argue it would be better if there was an endgame upgrade or tool you could get that would mark the treasures like how the game does it for bottles. There isn't even a "clinking sound" or any help for these.
Anyway, collecting all the treasures for an episode unlocks the arcade machine minigame for that episode.
Also sidenote, but this game has the worst map screen that still somehow can be useful. The map gives a top down view of the area but with a blue filter. This makes it harder and more annoying to navigate and use landmarks for reference. Especially on the VITA with its smaller screen. There are also no icons on the map (aside from bottles, safes and objectives) or the ability to make your own markers. The VITA version makes it worse as you can't even use the buttons to navigate the map. You have to use the touchscreen even though that's not how it is in the PS3 version. But you can still use it to know where you are and where collectibles can be from guides. It's technically readable and useful but just barely. I've never seen a map in a game so perfectly walk the line between useful and annoying.
The next collectible are Sly Masks. There are 60 total and around 11 per Episode. Collecting them unlocks skins and some goodies. But the catch with them is that they can be anywhere. There can be a couple in the hub world. But also couple during select missions and even some in the arcade minigames. There's no way to know where any of them are. They generally tend to be really well hidden even if you are trying to scour every area.
Again, I wish there was a way to highlight them. The game's long load times make it a chore to switch episodes or missions so it's tedious to try searching for them manually.
Now it's time to talk about the arcades. Sly 4 has 3 arcade minigames that are used in both the main missions and have a harder version in the arcades in hideouts. The arcade versions of these minigames are harder, go on for much longer and can have secret paths that lead to portals that reward you with points and some of them even have Sly masks. You need to beat the high scores to get the trophies
The first minigame is "Alter Ego". This has you play this 2D auto scrolling twin stick shooter minigame where you must avoid enemies and collect these "ionic bits". Collecting 5 yellow bits levels you up so your weapons get more powerful. At level 10 you have shoot crazy fast, can launch missiles and have floating drones that can damage enemies around you. But whenever you take damage, you drop an entire level. And you get left behind as the level autoscrolls, you respawn at level 0. You can also collect blue bits which can give you a grenade explosion around you.
Personally, I don't really like this minigame. It's fine when playing casually as a change of pace but grinding the high score isn't great. Since it is an autoscroller it is entirely possible you don't have enough points to match the high score and you won't know until its too late, wasting your time. I also found the hitboxes a bit too small. Making items more annoying to pickup.
The key to success is finding the right balance between collecting yellow bits as they give points and level you up (and how high your level is acts as a multiplier for your score) and killing enemies since they give more points. As well as avoiding taking damage and maintaining level 10 as much as possible and knowing where the secret paths are so you can get more points as well as level up if you have messed up.
The second minigame is "System Cracker". Here, you guide a little space ship looking thing through 2D levels in top down twin stick shooting sections. This isn't an autoscroller. You need to explore levels looking for keys and shooting enemies. There are 3 ships you can switch between by going onto specific coloured pads and each ship has its pros and cons. The green ship you start with does decent damage and has decent health and can carry keys. So it's a jack of all trades master of none kinda ship. The pink ship literally resembles a tank. It fires slower and at a shorter range but does more damage and has more health. It's also necessary for destroying pink crystals to progress. The blue ship has floatier handling and faster speeds. Its shots also bounce off walls and it can draw a line which can activate switches and damage enemies. It is weaker than the green ship though.
I actually really enjoyed this minigame and was happy whenever it comes up. It even feels the most fleshed out of the 3. Like, I feel it could even be released as a small standalone game with some tweaking and expansion. I'd probably play a mobile version of this in my free time.
I like how varied the levels can be. You can have a lot of different threats and mini-puzzles and even scenarios where you have to keep switching between ships on the fly to damage enemies. Like, there's this one enemy that's made up of orange, blue and pink hexagons that require you to switch between all 3 ships and use their abilities to damage it. It's quite fun. Damage one ship takes is "saved" on that ship. So if you take 50% damage with the green ship and switch to the pink one, the pink one will have 100% health. But whenever you switch back to the green one, you will be back at 50% health. So mistakes have consequences requiring you to make decisions accounting for them without being too overbearing.
Beating the high scores for the associated arcades is very easy. For one, there is no time limit or pressure so you’re free to take your time and play carefully. On top of that, the mode is very generous with points. Whereas Alter Ego only gives you points for killing enemies and picking up bits (and you need to get and maintain a multiplier for decent times), System Cracker gives you points even for shooting obstacles and barricades in your way. In Alter Ego, I was scraping for points until the very end. In System Cracker, I had more than enough points by the halfway mark.
I suppose the game could have balanced this by increasing the points threshold and rewarding extra points for taking less time to complete sections but I’m not complaining.
The third and worst minigame is “Spark Chaser”. Here you must guide a little electric ball across these maze like areas with gaps that end your attempt if you fall down them and these pinball like bounce pads that bounce you really far. There’s also a time pressure. You have around 20 seconds to get as far as possible with more time added as you pick up these purple clock icons.
The biggest issue is that it’s entirely controlled by motion controls. And this makes me experience worse on VITA. Seriously, I very nearly quit playing. This post was almost titled “I gave up trying to Platinum Sly 4”.
With the PS3 version, at least titling the remote doesn’t also affect your view of the screen. You can look at the game and play it the same as you normally would. But in the VITA version, the “neutral” position where no input is registered by the system is placing the VITA flat with its screen facing up. The standard “screen facing you” position registers as down.
The end result is a frustrating experience. This minigame requires really fine precision given how easy it is to fall off and the time pressure requires you both be fast and more precise to collect time pickups. On top of that, your view is constantly being messed with due to how much you need to tilt the system from odd angles. Especially how tilting “up” really makes it hard to see. Oh, and the dialogue from Bentley as you bounce gets really annoying and repetitive.
It’s barely tolerable in regular missions since those don’t require as much precision or speed. And even then, the usage there in 2013 was suspect to begin with. I only completed this because there’s a cheese where if you can get enough time early on, you can then keep bouncing on certain pads which give around 20 points per bounce. When I played “normally”, I’d get around 300 points with the high score being 1000 points. Using the cheese, I averaged around 990 points and managed to get lucky to win with 1010 points.
Tangent Time:
I’ve said it before. Motion controls work best when they complement existing controls in an optional way or in more restrained ways. I love it when games have gyro aiming since that can help compensate when aiming with sticks with small fine corrections. It works here because the sticks do most of the work and the gyro sensors work where they are best suited.
Or in many mobile racing games, steering is often done by tilting your phone. I enjoy this because there is only one axis you need to tilt your phone, the screen often rotates in conjunction so your view is preserved and it’s more intuitive to feel the “range” of rotation and how it corresponds to steering.
Hell, even ignoring these approaches, motion can still be used in worthwhile ways. Such as by mapping an extra action that is infrequent if all other buttons are occupied. The Mario games on Wii map a “spin” when you jump and shake the remotes giving Mario a bit of grace allowing him to make slightly further jumps or correct a bad jump. Call of Duty MW1 on Wii allowed you to assign certain commands to custom motions of the controller and nunchuck. So you could map stuff like jumping, moving and shooting to buttons but map reloading to smacking the nunchuck to the Wii Mote or plunge the Wii Mote forward to do a melee attack or tilting the Wii Mote to bring out a grenade or alt fire.
Even Resistance 1: Fall of Man had a neat idea. You could quickly tilt the controller left to bring up the Scoreboard screen without needing to take your thumbs off the sticks or stop moving. The Soulsbourne games allow you to quickly do emotes without needing a menu by holding the interact button and quickly tilting the controller in certain directions.
I bring all this up to highlight how Sly 4’s use of motion controls are a failure on every level. They’re mostly used in place of minigames as the sole method of control. So all the issues of motion controls (such as the lack of broad control and feedback) are front and centre. The only place where the motion controls are understandable is when firing arrows as you can then control the arrow after it’s fired using both the sticks and gyro aiming. But even then, the lack of any ability to tune the gyro sensitivity or even invert the controls hampers any use it could have had.
I don’t mind the idea of Sly 4 having decent motion controls. There are places where I can see it being beneficial. In addition to shooting and guiding arrows, I can see it being useful when you have to use the binoculars. Especially as Bentley as you need to shoot darts precisely.
Or, here’s a gimmicky one: you can bind certain costumes or tools to also be selected by quickly tilting the system. Even though using the D-pad for a quick select would be faster, it would still be a better use of motion controls for Sly 4 than most of what’s currently there.
End Tangent.
Back to getting all the trophies, the final arcade machine, unlocked only when you’ve gotten all the treasures in every other episode, is very easy. It has “3 rooms”, one featuring every minigame thus far. But the high score requirements are really low and rooms aren’t as tough as prior versions. You can easily get the high score in the first area which is the Alter Ego one. Even if you miss it there, the second area is Spark Runner but you can keep reloading the checkpoint to preserve your score. So you can get some time clocks, reload a checkpoint when you’re close to running out of time or about to fall off and repeat until you get the high score.
You do need to get past the Spark Runner section to the 3rd and final section that uses System Cracker's gameplay in order to get a hidden Sly Mask, but it's far easier than the dedicated Spark Runner arcade minigame as the section is shorter, is more generous with Time Pickups, has easier level design and lets you reload a checkpoint if you're about to fail which doesn't end the run.
So yeah, Sly 4 Thieves in Time was....inconsistent game to platinum. I enjoyed the base gameplay, System Cracker, the various challenge trophies and the mini speedruns for collecting treasures. I didn't enjoy finding the collectibles and doing some of the other minigames. I hated Spark Runner.
If the game had more ways of tracking collectibles, fewer minigames and better load times, I'd gladly recommend it as a fun game to platinum.
As for the base game itself, I am mixed on it. The gameplay is arguably the best in the series. Sly's movement and costumes are so fun to play around with. Murray, Bentely and Sly's ancestors are also fun changes of pace during missions.
The story is lacking. My main issue is that it doesn't feel like it realizes its following up Sly 3. The story so casually undoes the ending of Sly 3 to get Sly 4's story going. I get it, that's what a sequel has to do. But the way it does it really undermines Sly 3. It's also much more lighthearted and doesn't have as much of a theme or focal point as its predecessors. Sly 1-3 explored the theme of legacy and the consequences of adhering to it so tightly. A major aspect of Sly 3 was Sly realizing the Cooper Vault wasn't worth dying for. It's what prompts him to fake his amnesia and retire with Carmilita in the end. So for Sly 4 to then have Sly have an itch to steal just for the fun of it, it's sending mixed messages here.
In addition, Sly is really casual about the fact Carmilita now knows about his betrayal and has broken up with him. Seems like that should have been a bigger deal. In fact, that kind of "casual-ness" persists throughout the story. Sly doesn't really have much of an arc or any real heartfelt moments with his ancestors. Nor do they seem to really care their decedent from the future is here with them.
If I could have tweaked the story to address these points, here's what I would have done:
I'd have the story open with Sly, Bentley and Murray enjoying their "retirement" and have no plans of thieving. I'd go so far as to have Sly even scoff at the idea of him ever wanting to be a thief. Then when the pages of the Thievus Racconus are dissapearing, Sly, Bentley and Murray have to reluctantly unretire to try stopping them. There would be dialogue during the opening mission of Sly being worried if they get caught as it would undo their happy ending. And then when Carmilita catches Sly, Sly at first is flustered and tries to explain the situation to Carmilita who isn't having any of Sly's BS. Sly is forcibly extracted by the gang and then they time travel. As they are time travelling. Sly is upset that, in order to go literally defend the Cooper Legacy, he has to give up his happy relationship and can't be repaired now. That even if they fix the problem, they'll be on the run forever now. Murray had to give up his professional career as well.
Already, I feel this introduction has a few things going for it. It respects the ending of Sly 3 and keeps the characters in more character, as well as putting more heat on Le Paradox. Sly 4 had to rip away the happy ending that was Sly 3. The characters know that and aren't happy about it. There is immediate consequences. And that heat can be directed at Le Paradox when he comes later.
I'd also like if all of the ancestors Sly met had different reactions to both him and the Cooper legacy and how it affects Sly's arc.
For example, lets say when he meets Riochi Cooper, Ricohi is initially disappointed in Sly as the future Cooper decendent as Sly doesn't act honourably or respect the legacy or something like this. Something that makes Sly start to question if it's even worth defending the Cooper Legacy. Bentely is the voice of reason here and mediator that gets the gang to work as well as they can.
Then when Sly meets Tennessee Cooper, Sly is initially expecting another traditionalist ancestor that cares a lot about the Cooper Legacy. But Tennessee is kinda the opposite of Riochi in that Tennasee doesn't care about the legacy in the same way. He adds his own spin and contributions but also uses the knowledge from it to do his own thing. Perhaps Tennessee is this Robin-Hood esque figure who uses his heisting skills to steal from the corrupt ruling class and give to the lower class. The point being that through Tennessee, Sly considers another aspect of the Cooper Legacy on how he's not that beholden to it and can potentially make it his own.
Then when Sly meets Bob, part of Bob's training is also from Sly as Sly teaches him some of the Cooper moves he knows. Since Bob is the first Cooper ancestor, he has no bias towards the legacy or any knowledge. So he's far more grateful and begins to use his new skills in helpful ways. Causing Sly to wonder if he could use the Cooper Legacy in more ways.
It's a similar situation for Sir Galleth. And for Selim, perhaps by that point, Sly has a newfound outlook and appreciation for the Cooper Legacy and ways on how he can improve it or make it his own that he encourages Selim not to retire or to retire in such a way where he could help people or something like that.
So yeah, there's this theme now of "Don't let the past define you now. You can make it your own and grow past its flaws". Which I feel would give Sly 4 more of a punch. I am basically copying Metal Gear Solid 4 and Assassin's Creed though.
I also feel it would be better if Penelope wasn't the villain of episode 4. It seems to contradict her character from past games and the explanation given for her heel turn doesn't really hold water. I feel the story would be better if Penelope had the role Dmitri has where she's their help in the present and the Knight was a new character. But if you need to have Penelope as the antagonist, have her be under mind control or something. That way the team has the conflict of how will they stop the plan without hurting their friend. But if you really insist on Penelope being a full on antagonist now by her own choice, perhaps flesh out her motivations more? Maybe something like "she sees how Bentley will never reach his full potential as the Bill Gates of the world because of his criminal past that requires him to lay low and not take public credit for his inventions. So she's trying to erase the Coopers so Bentley will have never met Sly". That would at least be more than "I want money".
Everything else, I feel works more or less.
I will note that the cliffhanger ending was a weird choice given that this game wasn't projected to sell well and kinda pigenholes any story Sly 5 would be going for. Plus, it being locked behind the platinum trophy means only a small portion of the few players that played Sly 4 would even know about it.
So yeah, that's my take on platinumming Sly 4: Thieves in Time. What do y'all think?
Next up for me is platinumming every Spider-Man game on PS VITA. See you then.

Here's a screenshot showing what I'm talking about. Here's a text description as well:
Its found in the NVIDIA Settings panel (nvidia-settings) under "X Server Display Configuration". The setting says "Allow G-SYNC on monitor not validated as G-SYNC Compatible".
Every time I restart my computer I have screen flicker issues. The only solution I've found is enabling this setting. The problem is that I can not for the life of me get the setting to persist across restarts.
When I reboot and login I have flicker issues again. I open the nvidia settings panel and see that this option is disabled. I enable it and hit Apply. The flickering seems to stop.
Side Question
As an aside, I can't save my nvidia settings unless I start the application as root. Even then, after I save my settings and try to close the application I get a warning about unsaved changes. Here's an example of that.
Is this normal? If not, what is wrong and how do I correct it?

More details

I'll put my xorg.conf in the comments so it doesn't make my post huge.
I'm running Manjaro with KDE.
Let me know what info is useful for troubleshooting this and I'll add what I can.

2023.05.30 22:00 queenbirgitta I don't know how to cope with her behavior.

Half for advice and half to vent. My husband and I have a precious 1 1/2 year old Pyr girl. I love her, but I need advice because I'm getting so stressed.
Growing up, I always had dogs and my parents were amazing at training them. Granted they were labs lol. They didn't go on the furniture, they stayed in their yard, and they responded to verbal ques. That's what I'm used to.
Obviously that's not the great pyrenees style. She's smart and knows the verbal ques (she'll listen perfectly when there's a treat in store). But she just. Doesn't. Listen. I know I'm preaching to the choir and that it's literally what her breed does. But I'm so tired.
She knows she's not supposed to go on the bed (we don't have room and I'm not okay with dogs on furniture), so she'll wait until she knows we're asleep and jump up on us, jolting us awake and won't get down until one of us gets out of bed and physically pulls her off. Multiple times a night.
She'll jump up on people despite immense training (she knows she's not supposed to, if there's a reward at stake, she won't do it).
If someone isn't looking, she'll wreak havoc to get to the cat's food.
And you literally cannot move without her jumping up and running to you/following you/standing directly in front of you. I honestly think she trips us on purpose to get physical touch/attention.
Please believe me, I love her so much. She's a sweetheart who didn't deserve being thrown from shelter to shelter for the first few months of her life. I'm so glad she has us as a home.
But I literally do not feel at peace in my own home. She has me thinking that I'm never going to want another dog after her.
Any advice or support is appreciated. I'm at a loss.

2023.05.30 22:00 Galdi-br My players allied with Jarlaxle and ditched the Cassalanters, what happens now?

Alexandrian remix
After the Fireball my players were contacted by the Cassalanters and agreed to help their innocent child cursed by “some evil devil worshippers”. They agreed to take whatever was left of the gold.
They then tip-off Jarlaxle about the Grand Game by asking about the Gralhund Nimblewright.
The Gralhund heist happens, things go south, the entire family dies, they end up with the stone but are detained by the guards, awaiting trial in a tenday (https://www.reddit.com/WaterdeepDragonHeist/comments/13mxyj0/the_gralhunds_are_dead_i_need_help/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=ioscss&utm_content=1&utm_term=1)
Trial happens, they get a lawyer sponsored by the Cassalanters. Lord Victoro (a masked lord in my game) is also present at the trial, but the players never met him and didn’t know he was there. Laeral was also there.
During trial, the evidence (Gralhund reports on grand game) is read out loud, since they were apprehended in possession of a PC.
So now people who were at the trial know about something called Stone of Golorr, that it probably was in Gralhund possession, and is now missing.
Jarlaxle, knowing everything that transpired because of the Nimblewright crystal, offers to aid in trial by testifying in their behalf that the Nimble sold could have went berserk due to interference by the family. In return, he asks for an audience in his Theater.
The PCs eventually get off with fines and edicts, but no death penalty. Only the Zhentarim were condemned to death.
After they’re released and are done with the press, they meet with Zord (they don’t know about drow yet). He proposes that they work together to find the Eyes and use the Stone to find the Gold and save the city of Luskan, that is suffering without the Lord’s Alliance protection. Whatever gold isn’t needed to buy their way in, the PCs can have as a reward (he’s also doing this to secure the Dragonstaff for himself, which he suspects is also hidden there).
The players agree that saving a city is better than saving two children, and they had some “creepy vibes” from the Cassalanters (all tieflings servants, curses, bankers, etc). They don’t know the Cassalanters have one of the eyes.
So they made this deal and left the theater, on their way to the Cassalanters, who will question them about the whereabouts of Golorr, and probably catch them on their lies.
How would you play the factions now, how would you procced?

2023.05.30 21:56 JohnathanHyde What is Error Code 500 and how do I resolve it?

So Pokemon Home just got an update with new features and Scarlet/Violet compatibility. Yay! But now I cannot even login. Every attempt with my main profile gets me Error Code 500.
Funny thing is, I try on another profile that has never connected to Pokemon Home before and it can access Home just fine.
Both profiles are on the Nintendo Switch.
I have tried deleting the app and reinstalling, I have tried updating which it says I am on the current update (3.0.0), I have tried clearing my Switches cache for my profile, and I have tried deleting the save data and entering that way. All those avenues have been met with Error Code 500.
I am at a loss as to why I am not able to login or even what this code means. I also do not have a paid subscription to Home and never have nor do I have any Pokemon stored in the app currently. So again, no idea why I cannot even login in.
This also occurs for my profile on multiple switches as well, so it's not just my console. So somehow, this issue is linked to my account and have no idea on how to fix it.

Hey guys!
I and my friend are currently working on an app that helps you to build habits. We will use 4 different techniques such as finding your purpose, action planning, accountability and reward which will help change your behaviour. You can choose your individual habit in the future, but we mainly focus on: - meditation - exercise - no alcohol - wake up early - read We first want to do MVP testing and it would help a lot if some of you could maybe try it out in the testing stage and give us feedback so we don't waste time building it haha This is a non-commercial idea and we are not planning to make money from it, we just want to create something cool that people can actually benefit from!
If you are down you can shoot me a message or use this link :) https://forms.gle/PcmVZvtT4SVo2Peu9 (Lmk what you think or if you have any other ideas that you would like to see)

Hello.

I'm looking into my Silver farming vechile and i simple came acoss the "Saab J35XS" which according to the game gives a reward off
Research 695% 2.32 x 3
Silver Lions 795% 265 x 3.5
These stats are with premium, according to what i'm able to see this vechile seems to be the higheste money maker currently in the game, why is this so high compared to the other premium vehicles in the game?
( I can see Naval combat vechiles have higher % income however the game style isn't for me )

2023.05.30 21:52 Food24seven First time seeing MIL after boundary blow up

So I am going to try and keep this short. Read post history for details about MIL. 8 days ago we had a talk with her and laid down boundaries. Boundaries that should not have to be asked for and are common decency. A great way to sum up our boundary message is that we were letting her know we will choose distance from her over disrespect from her.
We provided examples of her disrespect as well and MIL denied all claims or said “I don’t remember”. MIL was extremely angry at this conversation. She reacted in a typical narc way where she didn’t see how anything she was doing was wrong as she was only doing things because she loves her grandson and how could we be so mean to her. When her son is telling her how he has been hurt, her reaction is to be mad at him for saying this to her…… cringe. Also I don’t know if she is a narcissist but she checks a lot of boxes when I read about them online.
Anyways, fast forward to today. MIL has not spoken to me or DH in 8 days and counting. She let us know at the end of the boundary talk that this was our punishment for telling her our boundaries but it’s such a reward for both of us. This weekend is a gender reveal party for MIL’s other son (DH’s brother) and it’s co-ed. I am very excited to celebrate the new baby with my BIL and SIL who are wonderful people.
Side note: they have the same issues with MIL and have expressed these issues to her. MIL will no doubt be at the party as it pertains to her next grandchild. My DH will not be able to attend as he will be at work. I am going with my 8 month old son, so please don’t suggest that I don’t go. But I would love advice on how to handle this situation. Last contact with MIL was boundaries and somewhat explosive on her end. I want to keep the peace but also not fold to MIL. How do I balance this? She is likely to make petty comments to others while I am in earshot. With a big group she will mostly hold herself together and hide her nastiest behaviors.
Another side note: most people at the party know how awful MIL can be as they have experienced it themselves. MIL doesn’t get along with most, if not all, people who will be in attendance.
Please do not suggest no contact. We are happy setting our boundaries and when they are crossed we will go NC for a period of time and we have a plan together as a couple. Since our boundary talk 8 days ago, she has not crossed any boundaries (we haven’t seen or hear from her) so we have no reason to be NC right now. Also we will be starting couples therapy soon purely to discuss MIL. We hope to invite her to some sessions in the future to work on our relationship. We have hopes for change, so please no cancel culture in the comments. Thank you.
PS DH is amazingly supportive and totally gets how his mom can be!

2023.05.30 21:49 ThrowRAFriendship200 Is this normal in an office job?

I just started a job at a new place (office job) been here around 4 months already. I’m young (F, early 20s) there’s only 3 other people roughly my age and the rest are a lot older.
I have a boss who I mostly answer to, everyone else answers to a different boss. But there’s one guy who also works for my boss a lot too, he’s higher up than me but he’s a little younger. Even though we’re a few years apart, we don’t really have much in common. My boss randomly came up with the idea that if we meet our targets (only the three of us) we can have an “award”. I thought the award was gonna be bonus pay or something but nope, turns out if we hit the targets for the week we get to go either to drinks or a lunch, just the three of us. My boss is over 10 years older than us. I don’t want to seem ungrateful, but I’m a little discouraged. I just find it painful, me, this younger co-worker and my boss all sat in a bar or a restaurant trying to converse when we all kind of have nothing in common.
Oh and by the way, I’m not even involved in meeting these targets as I’m not even involved in that section of work, I’m actually training in a different area so I have no idea why my boss has included me in these “reward” outings or in the meeting target meetings. I also think I’m the lowest paid person there (which, you know, I understand as I’m new).
We do have work socials with the rest of the office which are more bearable because it’s a whole group of people and you can mingle, it’s not just three people. I don’t want to seem like a whiner but I’m a very introverted person and I enjoy having my lunch breaks to myself and other than work, I have nothing in common with these two guys. Is this normal for work? I have heard of being rewarded free lunches from companies for morale, but I’ve never heard of when it’s just three people not the whole office.

2023.05.30 21:47 Prestigious_Ad_5581 Tips for blocking all scammers

I was recently scammed by a group most likely from Nigeria, through Snapchat. I talked to them over the phone and said the usual line "I will ruin your life! I will fuck you up!" I blocked them on all social media, but no matter how many accounts and phone numbers I blocked, they still found me through other fake accounts and kept calling my phone number.
Here's a tip to block ALL unidentified numbers in Android phones: Tap the Phone app icon Tap the 3 dotted lines on right hand corner of screen Settings Blocked Numbers Select the Unknown slider to the right
This activates a blocker that will stop the spamming of calls and texts from all unknown numbers that the scammers use. You may still get spam calls from car warranty and medicare rewards people, but at least you will be free from these sextortionists!
Now all you have to do is go completely private in all social media and change your name, contact info and profile picture. For me personally, I deactivated my Facebook/Instagram and changed my name on LinkedIn.
Lastly, you can Google your own name and see if any of your information comes up on the search results. If it does come up with anything, just go to that social media site and change your information temporarily.

2023.05.30 21:46 VoodoDreams Gentle/respectful/no spank audio book recommendations?

We are elbow deep into the attitude of 3.5 years and my SO sometimes doesn't think natural consequences are enough and is worried we will end up with a brat like his co-worker who has a 9 yr old who is not given any consequences (his mom feels bad because he was adopted and rewards for having a hard time).
He said the co-worker was talking to a group of guys who all agreed that the kid needed a good spanking to fix the problem.
He's willing to try "my way" but he doesn't know what to do and gets frustrated because he's not a reader and doesn't want to read my books.
What are some books that would explain the how's and why's to a sceptic and translate well to audio book?

2023.05.30 21:45 Sad_Ad_4657 Why is the hatch a thing

More often than not my team gives up if the game isn’t going perfectly their way, they decide to hide in a locker at 3 gens waiting for the rest of the team to die because they want hatch, they either bring left behind, a key, or both. In my opinion the hatch makes people work against each other, they just want everyone to die so they can have a chance at “winning” without actually doing anything. The game definitely rewards this play style too, considering if you do this consistently and are able to get the hatch, you’re most likely going to pip up. Meaning people will and do continue to do this. I see it all the time

2023.05.30 21:43 EnesBerry Adding another person's bank account in Amazon KDP?

Hello guys, I hope you are doing well!
I have researched a bit about this question online but I am a bit confused. I would like to know is such a thing possible or even worth it? I would be adding my own bank account into another user's account that lives in a place that is not supported by Amazon KDP. Is even having the login details of that person's account a problem?
Thank you in advance!
