Just listen to it while you watch the gif - skip to 3:05 and watch the above post.
That's all I could think about when I saw that gif. Don't know why.
Son of a bitch, it does work.
Since GTAO was still borked last night I threw in Revengeance again and did a quick run through of the campaign. Fuck, this game is still fantastic. I also remembered I'm one trophy away from Platinum still.
Which trophy? Is it the challenge missions?
No, the codec trophy. All I really need is a run through on Easy and a bunch of free time on Saturday.
I tried getting that my first playthrough, but I had to of missed a fair chunk somewhere. Maybe all the hostage specific discussions would put me over the top on it, but I checked that thing religiously and still never got it.
As far as I know, you should check the codec after any kind of major sequence happens like a cutscene or what not and just keep going until codecs start repeating themselves. There's also codecs during boss battles too I guess.
It's more or less just a tedious trophy to get. Though from what I have listened to there's a lot of good background information given through those, like how Jetstream Sam's sword can hurt Armstrong.
Thank you based Kojima!
Hoping the PC version comes with the DLC bundled in.
I know the hostages count as codec conversations. I wonder if there are codec conversations that pop up during certain normal fights? Like when you encounter a new enemy.
That trophy alone is why I will never, ever 100% this game. I've got way better shit to do with my time.
I'm just glad they were kept optional in Revengeance though. If there's one thing I couldn't stand about MGS4 it was those stupidly long and drawn out Beauty and the Beast convos with Drebin.
Use the codec during alert phases. Boris & Doktor will give you combat tips & weapon/enemy information that varies on what enemies you are currently facing (like guys with shields or guys with rocket launchers).
I got the trophy during mission 2 of my 2nd playthrough. Mission 1 & 2 has the most number of codec conversations, I think.
You had the patience for that bullshit. I'm sort of impressed. I can't slow down long enough to get it done, I always get to it and I'm like...nah, fuck it, Imma just keep dismembering motherfuckers.
