Peek-a-boo

@Octane I haven’t had any time to be able to sit down and play Shadow of the Colossus until today, and I am just blown away by how good it really is. I like the fact that it is a proper remake with the mechanics of the original game, albeit slightly touched up if you choose to use the modern control scheme.

The first time I trotted through the forest to the sixth or seventh colossi, I could almost smell the trees and feel the gentle breeze; easily the most naturally organic forest in any game I can think of.

I believe I am up to the ninth or tenth colossi, and have found each lizard at at least eleven or twelve prayer shrine thingmabobs. I like how the grip metre grows within the circle, as opposed to growing to the size of a small dinner plate in the bottom right of your television display!

It is those little QoL improvements that I really appreciate.

I do feel that the game looks different, what with it looking more nature and ‘realistic’, if you will. The fairytale-esque bloom of the original is missing (in parts), and some of the tunnels are a little bit too dark in this remake, which causes more fumbling about than necessary...

I will never tire of colossi three and five, even if they are more of a visual battles than anything. The music is still brilliant after all these years and, besides Agro’s galloping and the occasional grunt from the boy, the quietness of the world itself is marvellous.

I’m playing this in the ‘cinematic’ mode on my PS4 Pro for my first play through, then I shall give the ‘performance’ (60fps) mode a go once I have downed the last colossi. The grass, trees and faraway landscapes looks beautiful. The numerous waterfalls to the North-East of the map is breathtaking.

Annoyingly, I won’t be able to sit down and play this until Thursday now. How are you getting on?

This is the forest I am talking about:

I wonder if PSN name changes would be an E3 worthy announcement.

Anyone else not too thrilled with the Pixar worlds in KHIII?

They just don't seem all that befitting of combat (even though KH's combat is more goofy than your usual JRPG). I feel like it goes against their spirit, and that Toy Story (or a general Pixar world) should have just replaced Hundred Acre Wood as the puzzle centric pacifist world.

Disney has a lot more worlds of fantasy, swashbuckling, and/or adventure they could have tapped into, such as Frozen, Big Hero Six, or even Marvel or Star Wars.

Yes, but then again, everything in Kingdom Hearts seems out of place. It's kind of its thing...

I mean, I'm not much of a Disney fan in the first place. I loved their 2D stuff, and some of their Pixar stuff (mostly Toy Story, Monsters Inc, and the ones with the fish). I just don't dig the way anything looks in their movies - everything looks as plastic-y as Toy Story, IMO...and Toy Story was the only place where it kinda made sense...

I would've preferred if they'd stuck exclusively to the hand-drawn cartoons. I consider those to be a different category to the 3D animation stuff. And definitely different to Disney owned real people stuff like Pirates of the Caribbean.

Besides they still haven't used the greatest Disney movie of all time. The Black Cauldron

@Peek-a-boo I beat the first four. I don't want to rush the game, so I'm going to do no more than four per playing session. I'm using the same old guide I made for the lizards back in the day, and I'm surprised to see it still works. I found quite a few of them already. I'm not sure if it's complete, but I do think most of them are on it.

Anyway, the game is absolutely gorgeous. Some of the areas look so different from the original, it may as well be a new game. It's weird how a few high quality textures and a bit more foliage and grass can make a game spring to life. I can't wait to continue later this week.

@RR529 Well, they did confirm Big Hero 6 making it in. We saw Rapunzel making an appearance as well as Olympus Colosseum making a return. Also, it would be a surprise if Frozen did not make it in, since Disney loves milking that series to the ground

Just realised, this E3 we'll probably be getting FF7 remake, Last of Us 2 AND Cyberpunk 2077.
Oh boy is it gonna blow last year's out of the water.

What Playstation fans want to see: The Last of Us Part 2

What I want to see: Insomniac's Spider Man

@Dezzy Last of Us 2 and Cyberpunk, most likely.

FF7...yeah sure keep telling yourselves that. They just redesigned the damn characters again and they announced this game 3 years ago. If we get anything it'll be nothing of substance, nor can I see them derailing Kingdom Hearts 3 IF it comes this year with more "Hey it's Cloud!".

All I want is a new Ratchet game. I gave up on Jak ages ago because lol, that'll never happen, and neither will Sly because that cliffhanger is just gonna go unheeded. But Ratchet has hope. Probably be what Insomniac has their second team on.

@YummyHappyPills

Why does the fact they announced it 3 years ago bear on the issue either way? Surely that makes it more likely to be shown than not.
They redesigned Cloud, that's all they've said. And that'll probably end up being incredibly minor changes. They're not gonna change him fundamentally from the iconic appearance everyone knows. That would miss the point of a remake.

@Dezzy Perhaps. Remember this is Square Enix though. They clearly want Kingdom Hearts out of the way first, then let Nomura go back to procrastinating on something else like FFVII.

And yes they did say they changed Cloud's design. Yes it would be incredibly minor changes. They also mentioned the same happened to the other AVALANCHE members, when shown off at that private art thing the public couldn't see because reasons.

Now ask yourself this.

If you announce a game three years ago, publicly state development is being flat out restarted about 18 months to 2 years in, and then have it leaked that you are still finalising character designs, it makes you wonder how far along this episodic game really is.

Remember any changes to character designs need to be reflected in the likely pre-rendered cutscenes, and in-game models. That's more work there.

@YummyHappyPills

Where are you getting they "flat out restarted" development from?

"This company decision was made wanting to control quality as well as keeping the schedule stable."

Further, if you view the Kotaku source:

In a December 2015 interview with Famitsu, Square Enix producer Yoshinori Kitase said that Nomura complained about a CyberConnect2 trailer for FFVII Remake and wanted it done in a more Square Enix style.

Sounds like they weren't happy with what was made in the two years.

@YummyHappyPills

Nothing there suggests they restarted anything more than a trailer.

As far as we know, everything CyberConnect produced was simply handed over to Squenix. There's no reason to think that much was lost. They just didn't think the relationship was working well for the project so wanted it done by the 1 internal group.

Rumours swirling of a Q3 release for Spyro Remasters. March announcement.

1 year timed exclusivity to PS4, seemingly the same as Crash. On that note expect Crash ports to other systems past June.

@YummyHappyPills Ooh, that’s brilliant news!

I bet you are super-duper pleased, hey?

Here’s hoping they can get the Spyro the Dragon Trilogy to run at 60fps...

Knuckles-Fajita

@Peek-a-boo On both notes yes.

The possibility of portable Crash is great.

The possibility of Spyro remakes, and later portable Spyro remakes, is also great.

But Spyro is my first ever game.

If anything is as off as the hitbox for Crash, I will be scathing.

I'll probably nab the Spyro trilogy if it's remastered on PS4. I really enjoyed those games back in the day, and it'll be great to play a version that doesn't require me to use the shoulder buttons to turn.
