I think I might have finished it on PS2. Usually if I don't finish something it's just because something else came along and I got distracted.

Useless. You’ve squandered two of the greatest games ever made.

I sold my PS2 copy of Shadow of the Colossus without even playing it ;)

And I only played Ico for 30 minutes before doing the same..

If I ever get a PS4, I might get the remaster though.

You people don’t deserve Ueda.

Anyhoo, the remake has ADDITIONAL STUFF. Firstly, a The Last Guardian Easter egg somewhere on the map. Secondly, collectible GOLD COINS! Amazing. There’s rumoured to be 79 of them. Who gives a fuck. Apparently, it’s CURRENTLY UNKNOWN whether collecting them all does anything. I’m going to suggest that it doesn’t do fuck all; there’s certainly going to be no new collossi because fuck you.

I liked the idea of the games more than actually playing them. See also Dx Soulsborne

Just got an email from Playstation plugging this. Below the plug, they trolled me with "Horizon Zero Dawn is great, but have you tried these..."
Yup, still haven't finished HZD, but unlike all you dilettantes above, I will finish it. Then I may go back to Fallout 4.

I might have moved on to the 360 at that point. I know I was playing the original Xbox more than the PS2 by then. I think I was about halfway through SotC and got a 360 and that was that. (I know for definite the SotC disk was in the drive when I unhooked the PS2.

The hunt for the 79 gold coins has got me bloody interested now. I think the people looking are up to 70 gold coins still. People saying that there might be a 17 collossi who may or may not be ... Trico!?

Frankly, I doubt it’s anything, but, goddamn, the mystery is pulling me in. Its definitely not a trophy though because all the trophies are known.

I got this for my birthday! I’m going to play it tonight when Darwin’s in bed!
Stay tuned for the post where I moan about system updates :)

It’s ok, it’s normally quite fast. Darwin will be asleep with an hour now so then I’ll put it on and see what the damage is.

Oh my god, no. I can’t imagine posting something like that. :s

No, turns out it was rubbish and I was just going to say Darwin was due to bed in 20 minutes but the updates would likely mean you couldn’t play until tomorrow. Hold on, that’s not funny. There was a funny bit to it.

Anyway, happy second birthday to Russell’s PS3. Sorry you’ve only been switched on about three times.

Ah...hubris.
Darwin came running through while I was getting his room ready to projectile vomit all over his newly washed sheets so bed was an hour later than normal. Still, only a 347MB system update and now the game needs to install I guess.

I didn’t expect it as I said above, but I had hoped for something more exciting.

The fight with the fifth colossus is still epic!

The whooshing and the sound of the spray as the bird blasts upwards over the still lake as you rocket into the air on the back of this colossus is still immense. The new particle effects are great too.

Quick rundown:

1) Graphics: excellent. It looks beaut although I think it loses something over the PS2 original in parts. The heavy transition effect from dark to light areas is massively reduced and that’s a shame. The collosi look brilliant though. The fur and hair effect is terrific. Bearded Bloke is my fave as he bends down to get a good look at you before you climb up his thick chin wig like a monkey.

2) Music: Still the best soundtrack to any game ever. Just beautiful.

3) SoundFX: Exactly as you remember them but there’s more. One wooded area sounds particularly lively when it really shouldn’t. It doesn’t look and sound as dead and desolate as it used to in my head, this is a bad thing.

4) Camera/Frames: The frame rate is solid and above 10 FPS of the OG, thank Christ. But for all the talk of modernising the controls the sodding camera is the same as I remember it: it doesn’t like you touching it at all. Much like TLG it wants to give you the most cinematic view in frame but sometimes you want it to just let you have control so you can look at a distant tree or something. It’s a shame they didn’t allow you to switch between a free camera and the semi-free one. Big oversight.

5) Gameplay: it’s the same. That is to say it’s one of the best game ever made.

I didn’t realise that the PS4 Pro in performance mode runs the game at 60FPS. I’ve tried the cinematic mode at 30FPS at 4K but you can’t beat the buttery smooth 60FPS. Definitely the premo way to play.

I started this last night!

It looks beautiful!

I can't get out of the atrium with the stone idols! My horse won't walk forwards, only backwards.

I suspect it may be a record for least progress made after starting a game.
