Forums - Sony Discussion - VGChartz plays Ico and Shadow of the Colossus


With the recent unveiling of Project Trico (intentional or not), I'd figure the site could commermorate the event by having all those who enjoy the works of Team ICO (or any looking to get into their games for the first time) play through both of the Team's previous works.  While playing each title, we can discuss gameplay strategies, like how to tackle a certain colossus, or talk about the emotional impact either game may have on us.  Make sure to properly spoiler tag things, of course.  Like so.



I think it'd be best to start Shadow of the Colossus first, given that it is set before Ico in the Ico universe, and given the fact that more people have Shadow of the Colossus out of the two, and thus more are able to play it.  Plus, I'm already halfway through Shadow, because I started replaying the game a few weeks back (I'm averaging 13 minutes a colossus, go me).  ;)



Playing Shadow starts now, then we'll begin Ico in a few days, after most people that decide to take part in this little endeavor complete Shadow.



I hope things go better than my last attempt at this, but I don't think we'll have too many problems, given 1. the popularity of both titles, and 2. the fact that both games together can be completed in under 10 hours.


And like I mentioned in my last thread, Khuutra and I have plans for a massive playthrough of all 3D console Zeldas, and possibly others as well.  However, due to time constraints on Khuutra's behalf, this has been delayed until July.  It will happen, though!


Anywho, start playing!

How in the hell did that happen? 0_o

I'll ................ consider it.

And snuggle the girls be they short or tall,
Then follow young Mat whenever he calls,
To dance with Jak o' the Shadows."
