Shadow of the Colossus


Are you serious? This game can be emulated on PC? No bugs, no glitches, no sound error, nothing wrong with it? If so, oh man! :D

From the few hours or so I played of it, nope. You need a  good CPU for it. One of the mot demanding games on the emulator.

All these RPG games I've never seen before in my childhood... Kingdom Hearts is the only one.. What was I doing with my PS2?...

A lot of them were released in 2005/2006, near the launch of the 7th gen. You probably were distracted with the new consoles.


Got my PS3 in 2008.

Gonna have to check this out. PS2 was RPG heaven. Would like to see how they look with better graphics.

But the graphics would be the same. I think you meant resolution.

Depends what you mean by graphics.  The assets are the same, but you are able to render at a much higher quality with higher resolution.  

Games looks insanely clean now even on a full hd television.  Which isn't the case for PS2.

Thanks, will try it out then and see how well it performs on my laptop! Won't have time to try it on my PC since I will leave for business in Shanghai this weekend and will be gone for 2 weeks. :( Must have some fun to do in the hotel, right. :)

I miss the days of PS2 RPGs. RPGs now seem mediocre at best. It makes me sad. I really wish they would remake the Final Fantasy games in true HD. I know it won't happen, so I don't need people quoting me, and letting me know that... but I still want it.

I got everything working and was playing Yakuza 2 start out of my disc drive. Controller working nice as well. Only issues I ran into was the sound. FPS is fine but audio would have occasional glitches or errors. It was odd.

Audio usually is the biggest problem for most people. 

Here's a guide to sound problems.

I was twiddling with the latency a bit. I noticed some improvement, but I couldn't quite tell if I was breaking it by using save/load states and constantly opening the admin console.

Overall, I was pleased.

Question for those who emulate, are the programs compatible with legit PS2 saves? i would probably do it if I could carry over  my existing PS2 saves that I have.

I haven't investigated that but I think there is no way to connect PS2 memory cards to PC. But if your PS2 has a hard drive then it could be possible but I'm not sure.

I already have the saves on my PC. I have a memory card adapter on my launch PS3. I just want to know if the files will work on an emulator.

They will, I did  it once. 

It is a huge pain in the ass though, you have to use like 2 or 3 programs and convert it 2 or 3 times.



The emulator still has issues.  For example:

This isn't emulated in hardware.  You have to switch to software rendering to get that and other lighting (MGS 3 for instance) working right.  Or else it's gone.  The other thing I noticed is the fail of emulating Street Fighter Alpha Anthology.  But to be fair, that title is emulating the games as opposed to a port.  Or the audio is emulated or something.  You have to run that game specifically with one rendering thread.  Audio, as others have mentioned, is "off" with titles.  Overall should be good for most.  I'm personally only using it in Software mode since I'm finicky about games being emulated right.  It's also a shame that the lighting and paper effects that the PS2 can pull off can't be emulated in hardware.  The author of GDSX gave up on it.  Also, Bsnes is superior to Zsnes.
