    SotC just feels like a trainwreck in slow motion, and I love it because of that.

    I was blown away when
    I first noticed that Wander was slowly getting black veins across his face and growing horns and looking more and more disheveled with each fight

    I was blown away when

    It seemed so gradual to me, I didn't even notice until the grass started dying beneath my feet when I stood still. It blew my mind, and I started really regretting the quest.

    I never noticed that before

    also

    fuck the 11th colossus

    it's like a bull and a cat put together

    fucker rams you against the wall and then while you're lying unconscious bats you around like a dead mouse

    it's kind of weird that some of the most difficult fights in the game are against the two smallest colossi

  • alternatingAberrationalternatingAberration I am the milk man My milk is deliciousRegistered User regular
    The worst colossus for me was the damn worm. Oh yeah, ride this horse while standing on it backwards using your bow and arrow, maintaining the correct speed for the colossus to surface but not so slow it can eat you, while avoiding all the rocks in this cave.

    fuck that.

  • miscellaneousinsanitymiscellaneousinsanity grass grows, birds fly, sun shines, and brother, i hurt peopleRegistered User regular
    Oh yeah, the little guys are the worst.

    Also water levels in video games make me really uneasy so I was flipping out the entire time through the eel colossus.

  • Speed RacerSpeed Racer Scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratchRegistered User regular
    just let the horse steer itself, 90% of the time it can figure out how not to ram into anything all on its own

    I did have some trouble with the worm when I fought it last night though and it was completely nuts

    I shot its eye, and then it kept going and slammed me and Agro into the wall. I climbed up and stabbed its first weakpoint and then it burrowed underground

    I went over to hop on Agro and his leg was sprained. He was doing the animation he does from the ending cutscene and wouldn't let me get on him. So I had to dodge the colossus on foot and get my ass kicked. Eventually he snapped out of it and let me ride him but jeez.

  • alternatingAberrationalternatingAberration I am the milk man My milk is deliciousRegistered User regular
    I didn't even know that horse could get hurt. Weird. That game is so full of secret things that the minimalist manual just never hints at.

  • Speed RacerSpeed Racer Scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratchRegistered User regular
    yeah it completely threw me

    also I had fun going outside the temple, running around in circles, and calling agro's name over and over

    I kept getting slightly further away from him which would prompt him to move towards me, but then I'd come back and he'd stop and enter his idling animation

    which gave the impression that he felt really awkward being near me while I acted like a crazy person

  • alternatingAberrationalternatingAberration I am the milk man My milk is deliciousRegistered User regular
    Can we all agree that the bird colossus was the best fight ever?

    Whenever I wanna show the game off I just go to my save right before that fight. It's just insane holding on to this massive living statue that is absolutely screaming through the sky. I caught myself laughing out loud in that fight.

    the bird colossus is fantastic

    but the flying sandworm is the best

  • alternatingAberrationalternatingAberration I am the milk man My milk is deliciousRegistered User regular
    The flying sandworm is my second favorite only because it'll dive back into the sand and kill the energy. But man, when it starts doing the loops, holy shiiiiit!

    I just killed colossus 11

    it's weird, I could have sworn there was a second electric eel colossus, and I remember thinking "wow that's kind of phoned in, why do I basically have to do the same fight twice?"

    but there clearly isn't so I don't know why I have that impression

    There are 2 fights with Bull colossi, but you fight them in very different ways

    has no one mentioned this game is in 3D?! I feel like everyone hates 3d except me. I am such a god damn sucker for all things 3D and I love it. Seeing rocks fly towards you as the colossi take a step is awesome.

    This is a thing I want in on. But I backed the wrong horse, I guess.

    Colossus 3, Gaius. That was the best.

    And wasn't there one that was completely passive? Like, even once you started wailing on it, it wouldn't (or couldn't) attack you?

    Oh brilliant

    the final colossus shoots lasers at you until you get close, but once you're actually climbing around on it it's pretty benign

    unlike the lousy goddamn 15th colossus where you have to stab the palm of his hand and he's flailing that son of a bitch all over the place

    I have fallen off of him 4 times now without being able to get a stab in

    I think the worst sotc thing I've experienced is when I was showing to a friend for the first time

    it had been a long time since I've played so we were trading the controller back and forth but I had him play the ending segment

    and as soon as he got control of Wander he turned around and ran straight into the vortex

    "Wha... why did you that"

    "Well I mean I saw where they were going with it and just wanted to get it over with"

    ughhhhh

  • Macro9Macro9 Registered User regular
    My favorite one is probably the fifth one. It wasn't all that hard but it was my most enjoyable one.

    Yeah, no celebrating for me when I finished it.

    there was a decent article on the game in an issue of Kill Screen

    the subtitle was, "Beating Shadow of the Colossus Tells Us Why We Should Never Have Started"

    which is pretty much all that needs to be said

    I DON'T HAVE ANY MONEY :(

  • mrmrmrmr Registered User regular
    Damn $25. But I traded in old games and new ones that didn't do it for me and I payed all of about a buck and a half for it. So I'm happy.

    Haven't made much progress in it yet, I want to pace myself. I've never beaten it, but watched my brother do so. I'm currently on the Eel colossus.

    I'm enjoying SOTC a lot more than I did on the PS2

    I'm going to blame it on the shoddy-ass framerate of the original version

    Ico is fantastic as always, nearly done with it
