If not, go away. Best case, this will mean little to you, worst case, it's a major spoiler.
To me Shadow of Colossus seems like prequel of ICO, even if creators have never confirmed it, there are some hints to it at the end on SOC. I have finished SOC, using YouTube to see videos that folks put there about best way or way(s) to kill colossuses. It is very short game, you can finish it in 5 or less hours but it is truly magical experience. Every boss battle is so epic, any of those "colossus" could be final boss battle in some other game. BTW- if you are Team ICO fan, check GamesBlow site there he wrote some stuff about two project on which they are working.
You're not fooling anyone. Here are more examples you've recently dumped on us. Why can't we enjoy these N4G without these stupid manipulations?
"stole those rumors from Gamesblow"
"Also 2 days ago GamesBlow gave short info"
"Check gamesblow blog"
"GamesBlow told you FIRST MINUTE"
"They stole storis/rumors from gamesblow"
"GamesBlow was first one to talk about"
"GamesBlow... has been way more right that SurferGuy"
"GamesBlow is only one i trust from now on"
"Yeah same stuff Gamesblow wrote few days ago"
He is gamesblow.
Flipping Gamestop Regional Manager, probably acne ridden and pot bellied, who can only feel like he is contributing to the world by announcing his insider news and being an ass.
Armyless Wow talk about obsession, i didn't know you go around and somewhere save every line i said about GamesBlow, thats some sick sh!t, like some kind of perverted stalker. From what i know internet is free, or at least we live in free society where people can say what they want as long as it is not racist or something like that. So i will keep on mentioning him if i feel so. If that bothers you, than skip it. malingenie I am not GamesBlow, since you guys follow and record my comments than you should know that i am from Europe, i even said from what country (you can find it in old comments). And as far as i know Gamesblow is American. So stop pulling crap from you mount by saying that i am him just because i use him as an example if he was wright on something.
i hear about him all the time throughout this site. who the fu<k is he? i'm guessing hes another nerd.
This game is fu<kin great, I wonder what its going to look like on the PS3.
i would love to be able to play enhanced version of ico/sotc in real hd format/updated graphics... the upscaling of the ps2 games on my ps3 isn't perfect and these games deserve to be rendered properly...
between ICO and SOC. Oh man i heard that team ico works on 3 games and i hope one of them is SOC2.
It won't be a conventially numbered sequel. it will be a sequel in the snese it's the same universe. SoTC came chronologically first anyway. Fumito Ueda confirmed that (I think).
B) I think SOTC was a prequel.
the game is a masterpiece. who would of thought a game with two cutscenes(beginning and end) would have such great impact and sell so well =D SOTC 2 FTW
SOTC was bottom line one of the most epic games of last generation. period.
Yes it is. First time ever where I thought a game could be art.
I liked this much better then any game last generation, as well as this generation.
Love the game, love the fan concept art--Ico, Princess and Aggro, awesome. To bad Wander can't be in it. :(
what the he are you doing man, almost every other post you're bigging up gamesblow. if this is your alt account and you're using it to market gamesblow, then stop, because thats not allowed. and if you're genuinely infatuated with the guy, then please stop coz its knda weird. back on topic, i thought the baby at the end was the first in the line of horned boys, with ICO being one of the descendants. and can anyone tell me what was on the shrine at the end of the game? there was supposed to be a way to climb up to the top, but i never managed to get there. and the fruit up there was supposed to decrease your grip, kind of like a forbidden fruit. anyway, shadow of the colossus is one of the greatest games ever created. its games like it that make me proud to call myself a gamer.
I would appreciate if you could back up your statement that i mentioning him in every other post of mine, i dare you to prove it! Or maybe you just hoped to score some point and get "agree" by playing to the rhythm of the crowed? That was pathetic man.
i hope the next one is set in the same kind of universe as SOTC (i know SOTC was set in the same universe as ICO) because the whole concept of SOTC is mindblowing
Anyoen else here on ConceptArt.org?
I saw Sammy's original Finally Finshed post for that piece, but it's quite old now.
And by the way I ams ure it will be Sandip, nothing has been clearly explained yet.
If someone compiled a list of the greatest games of all time, I don't think Shadow Of The Collossus would be at #1, but it should at least be #2 or #3!
im gonna have to check the screens out when i get home. i loved SoTC. 2nd fav game ever after the HL series (which im starting over again from the start tonight). the end of Episode 2 and the end of SoTC are very intense and i loved every freaking second. can't wait for the next in both.
I wrote a blog pretty much inspired after i finished this game!
said himself in an interview that his interpretation of the ending of SotC is that the Wanderer is the start of the horned boys line. damn i love those games... oh yeah, and don't forget to check out Gamesblow's blog for all the latest gaming news! /sarcasm
SOTC and ICO are hands down the best Gaming/Art Ive ever played. I cant even put in words how great that game is. My only problem with SOTC wasnt the game itself...it was a personal issue. I have a fear of large bodies of water and it was like murder for me to complete several of the bosses *the egale and serpent comes to mind*.
Half life series is #2 followed by Street Fighter series as #3
Let me point you to a passionate thesis titled
-Antagonism and Contuinity-
Which discusses the story arc, character development, timeline, creatures, and vast countryside and it's histories very insightfully.
The Author contacted me directly, as a matter of fact, after reading one of my N4G comments about Shadow of the Colossus that caught his eye and invited me to share his vision.
Trust me, if you haven't already done so, pay this site a visit, and remember more than you've already forgotten.
I ha no diea Diebussy had his own site.
He is a fantastic essayist. Love his writin, so insightful and well written. And he's a pretty clever bloke too.
1-800-4MY-XBOX for all your coffin needs.
and is exclusive for the ps3 im glad and prod of that day one buy for any othr game from this guys!!!! i hope the next game from them is shadown of colossus
I'M A DISGRUNTLED GAMESTOP EMPLOYEE!!!
Shadow of the Colossus deserved perfect ratings and everybody knows it. The game was just pure adventure and imagination. It's something that most people could never dream of creating. It was art!
Those concept pics are freaking amazing!!! Whoever "Sammy" is...Evolution studios should sign him on to make new Motorstorm 2 tracks.
I never finished the game... Sad I know but that damm boss were you had to use the geysers to flip him over just pissed me off so much that I said "screw it". Perhaps I need to just finish him off so that I can move on and enjoy the rest of the battles. My favorite is still the bird fight.
1st up, I wish this was in the open Zone... I really do. Some of you need to be out and out handed. Second up, Lamback & I are not the same person. I honestly can't believe some of you people are that feeble minded to think we're one in the same.
I've been called a lot of things, believe me. But Lamback, I have not. If you look at my track recorded... Honestly look at it. Honestly read my blogs and see the dates on which I post my news, you will see that I am 100% on the nose, 98% of the time.
You all are jelly of me, my fame and my super smash hit success. You hate the way I conduct myself and administer my news. You hate that you all tried proving me wrong, time and time again... to no avail.
Now, all you have left to do is try to cause other problems to cover up how wrong you were before. Let it go... You don't believe me, that's fine... don't take it out on Lamback. He's been here posting longer than I ever was.
I'm leaving this site... and thanks to people like you all. I'm not posting anything else for the benefit of the gamers out there. You all are complete waste.
To list everything I've called before your precious media dropped the ball, would take far too long... I have blog/time/date proof and my loyal readers know I'm legit.
Have fun with Surfer-thing and her "YES/NO" answers.
