Hey Machina! I love reading when others also appreciate this game as much as I do. I have noticed that those who do consider it pretty much the gaming experience of their life. It changed them in ways because of how deep it is. There's just something so ethereal and majestic about it I can't even put into proper words (or maybe I kinda just did? lol). It's pure escapism and the perfect game for ME. Not too long, not too complex, just right - I can jump in and just play whenever I feel like it, really, and always get enjoyment out of it. I must have just popped in the game just to beat the first colossus hundreds of times. With the updated look and on a console like the PS4, well...geez I'm stoked!
Also, I just HATE double-posting but after I read what you wrote I felt I had to help out a fellow fan just like a fellow fan helped ME out over at gamefaqs. The special edition is NOWHERE to be found outside of the US. Canada isn't even getting it (where I'm from) and I looked and checked literally EVERYWHERE. So here man, if you're like me and I truly believe you are, then you won't mind paying $90CAN ($70US) for the sure to be beautiful special edition right HERE:
:D I figure I gotta return the favour now. I placed a pre-order on this quicker than you can say Colossus lol. The only thing is, the price is acceptable but the DAMN shipping - $23 express. And I NEED this ASAP so it was an obvious decision.
Damn, that's a shame. I may have to order from them then. The price is very reasonable but I was hoping to play it day one, and that kinda kills those hopes :(
