The first ‘Shop Contest in many months gave us a ton of good entries, but unfortunately they couldn’t all be Bill Gibbons of ZZ Top.
Thanks to everyone who made this week’s call to ‘shopping arms a success, but especially TheRetroGamer whose winning entry was a masterpiece in both conception and execution.
I would not want to run into this colossus in a random set of grey scale ruins. He might start gurgling “I Gotsta Get Paid” at me while I’m hanging onto his drift wood beard for dear life. That time trial would not be able to end soon enough.
There were some other entries that deserve honorable mentions. Like I said, it was a good week for ‘Shops:
Andrew knows the Colossus mod we’re all waiting for.
ForScienceYouMonster did an amazing job on the lighting effects.
And sciteach went for the low-hanging fruit that still never ceases to deliver.
I enjoyed the rest of the entries as well, and apologize to everyone who went to photoshop a certain steely X-Men into your favorite Shadow of the Colossus scene only to see it had already been done. Without further ado here’s a smattering of the rest of the field, and be sure to check in next week because you never know when the traveling Kotaku ‘Shop Contest will be back in town!
FlyingDorkProd was the first to Pyotr into the fold.
Hands of Orlok probably isn’t alone in wanting to see Trico meet its maker.
