The Shadow of the Colossus remake brings the PS2 classic to a new group of players, boosting up the graphics and changing the controls to make things a little less clumsy. For some, those changes will improve the experience but even small changes can have unexpected consequences.
On Super Bowl day, I wasn’t all that interested in the outcome of the football game. I was excited for something else—the rumor that a new Cloverfield movie was going to drop that same night. 10 Cloverfield Lane was fantastic, I thought, so maybe this will be too. I’m totally going to stay up and watch this! An hour…
Since Shadow of the Colossus’ remake released, intrepid treasure hunters have been locating new collectable coins throughout the world. No one knew what the coins did, but a hint within the game’s credits led players to search for a total of 79 well-hidden coins. The final coins were discovered last night, unlocking a…
Shadow of the Colossus’ remake does more than spruce up the game’s graphics, it also adds an entirely new collectible for players to find. Players hunting down these hidden trinkets believe they are on the path to a new secret but there’s a hurdle in their path—they don’t know how many exist or what will happen when…
It’s strange to think about it now, 12 years later, but there was a time when I wondered if Shadow of the Colossus was going to be any good.
The world’s a different place than it was back in 2005. Maybe it’s time we had some new colossus to fight as a result.
When it was originally released in 2005 on the Playstation 2, Fumito Ueda’s Shadow of the Colossus was a technically ambitious game. The game revolves around a sword-wielding hero named Wander on his quest to resurrect a young woman by travelling on horseback across the vast “Forbidden Land” killing 16 giant colossi.…
After spending a little bit of time with the PlayStation 4 version of Shadow of the Colossus, I have to say that I’m really into the idea of game remakes.
Here’s the Tokyo Game Show trailer for the ultra HD Shadow of the Colossus remake for the PlayStation 4. Looks nice! It’s slated for a 2018 release.
Shadow Of The Colossus was broken, unpolished, and incomplete, and the upcoming remake shouldn’t try to fix that.
Not content with one HD re-release, Team Ico’s classic Shadow of the Colossus is now making its way to another PlayStation console, with the announcement today of a version for the PS4.
Wonder what action-adventure games are most popular in Japan? Let’s find out! There might be some surprises... Then again, there might not.
One of the highlights of the IGF awards this week was a short video showcasing the next game from Fumito Ueda, creator of classics like The Last Guardian, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.
The Last Guardian is a story about a boy and his giant monster friend, Trico. Using space, the game communicates a growing bond. How close are the two characters? When are they allowed to enter personal space? We examine how this relationship is crated in this video.
If waiting seven years for the third game from Ico and Shadow of the Colossus creator Fumito Ueda has taught us anything, it’s patience, which is exactly what’s needed to see our young hero and his massive catbird companion through to the end of The Last Guardian.
Dutch art dealers Cook & Becker, no stranger to video game collaborations, are releasing two pieces of art that will be very dear to a lotta folks’ hearts: museum-grade prints of some original paintings by Team ICO’s Fumito Ueda.
The opening cinematic ends as the camera transitions into live gameplay, and I’m given control for the first time. Moving Wander around is a joy, both in execution and for the fact that there’s no particular rush or threat as I prepare myself for this world and its as-yet unseen battles. The shrine is empty, save for…
A bleak landscape, battles against massive enemies which you can climb over...Prey for the Gods is as Shadow of the Colossus as you can get without actually playing Shadow of the Colossus.
The sixteen gigantic creatures in Shadow of the Colossus are some of the most memorable enemies in all of video games. There originally was supposed to be more, though, and a new video made by a super-fan speculates on where those colossi would have lived.
