i want shadow of the colossus 2
heres one fact everyone should know - shadow of the colossus is one of the greatest games ever...
Fumito Ueda's job application letter to Sony included a picture of a cat that would explain all the cats in sony's papers.
Fumito Ueda's job application letter to Sony included a picture of a cat For some bizarre reason, that just brought a smile to my face.
50. Fumito Ueda's job application letter to Sony included a picture of a cat no wonder he got the job 35. When the team published an advert on Weekly Famitsu Magazine looking for staff to work on Shadow of the Colossus, some 500 applications were received 36. 10 people made it to team 37. Only 1 of them satisfied Ueda's standards of quality atta boy.
"50. Fumito Ueda's job application letter to Sony included a picture of a cat no wonder he got the job " I'm sure it was an icanhascheezburger.com photo with "HALP! IM IN UR INBOX, LOOKIN FOR A JOB. PLZKTHXBAI!"
4. Originally ICO was meant to be released on PSone because then the PS2 didn't have many good games Just goes to show that the huge successful Playstation 2 didn't even start off with great games but shows you over time it went away.
This game is an example of emotion and story telling that is absent in the West.
I've never played ICO but Shadows is one of my favs. The PSN should start offering PS2 games as downloads and include ICO because many people haven't played that. I can't wait to see what their next project looks like.
i don't think they'd ever do a direct sequel to Shadow, but would handle it more like Ico and Shadow are related. I appreciate that about their storytelling, the next game can be a really unique experience that expands the overall story. and you should really pick up a used copy of Ico. Of course, if they did something completely unrelated to Ico and Shadow I'd still be just as excited to pick it up.
@Catastrophe: My thoughts exactly!
Loved these games...I wish Shadow was released on the PSN, I'd get it.
in Shadow of Colossus you can also jump and hang off the legs of the birds and fly about with them for a while.
