Great find. I love both games. GOW2 and SOTC are both classics. Hopefully they make a game together. (Shadow of the Kratos!)

Rythrine3884d ago (Edited 3884d ago )

That would be a masterpiece if they do.

You know I have the same feeling after watching the ending of GOW2 that Gaia is the true villain. It seems that its all a setup so Kratos can finish Zeus for the wrong reason. Just a gut feeling.

ngg123453884d ago

Will most likely be similar to SOTC, in that you are fighting those giant collosuses, and gaia could possibly be the last boss.

Rythrine3884d ago

Look at that, developers praising each others work. Itagaki could learn a thing or two about respecting your collegues and professionalism from these two guys.

MK_Red3884d ago

Awesome point. And even if Itagaki doesn't like others works he should at least learn to be polite and talk with manners not calling them "Half-assed" and "Sucks".

Rythrine3884d ago

I know, Red. Its just sad that he has to comment like that. He should've picked the right words in his mind before he opened his mouth.

Both games sucked hard, real hard! Thats why sooo many people purchased it, oh?, but they didnt! (ico & shadow that is, on the other hand god of war was great)

LeonSKennedy4Life3884d ago haven't played them yet, huh???

SotC destroys any game out there and it's just so freaking EPIC!!!

Ico is still one of the best platformers ever created. It beats the pants off of any Mario game and any Jak game.

Your confidence is disproportonal to your abilities! ~Ling

Is a Shadow of the Colossus or related game for PS3. I have my fingers crossed for TGS. Please Team ICO, please ;_;

Bathyj3884d ago (Edited 3884d ago )

Great insight and I couldn't again more.

I've never felt so emotionally attached to a character as I have in Ico. I seriously prefered to walk with Yorda hand in hand rather than to run because the animation was so convincing and the relationship so compelling that I didn't like to see her arm jerked in such a rough manner.

That might sound silly to some people. Maybe really silly. I suspect people that have played the game might understand if not completely agree with what I mean.

SotC was just as brilliant, awe inspiring, and more a next gen game than most games that have come out this generation.

I've got goosebumps thinking about what ICOTeam might accomplish on PS3 withCell and 50GB to work with. Its scary, I want sequels for both but who knows what they might come up with, with a new IP.

Azurite3884d ago

If they'll follow the same pattern maybe the next game is a prequel to Shadow of the Colossus as it was to ICO. :)
