Found 16th Jan
Set on a quest to bring a girl back to life, your task is to bring down 16 gigantic beasts. Armed with only your wits, a magical sword and a bow, venture out into expansive landscapes on the back of your trusty steed and seek out each Colossus. But be warned - while each giant has a specific weakness, finding and exploiting it will be far from simple. A thrilling mixture of exploration, platforming, puzzle-solving and action awaits.

Tempted, never played the original. One question, Are there any other enemies to fight on the way to the colossus’s or is it a big empty world? Don’t get me wrong, I love exploration but is there enough to keep you busy in between. It’s sort of a no brainier at this price so will more than likely order.

Just the colossus and yes it's pretty empty and dry. But visually it's still stunning. With improved graphics and texture, you're in for a treat
Great price, been waiting for a drop below £29.99. Ordered, thanks.

It's open, empty and lonely. You'll enjoy the change.

Yeah, I got quite a backlog on PS4, Xbox and Switch as well. But I couldn't resist this masterpiece, especially at such a bargain.

There's no other enemies, but it's not about exploration, sense of place and figuring out how to get to the Colossus.

Also figure out how to kill the colossus. Each one has a different method and technique
Loved the original, apprehensive about the remake.

Will pick it up at £15, can see it dropping very quickly in price.

Its is farily baron and desolate, but that is the whole point of this game, it isnt a "Huge" Open world, but it is fairly vast, but whilst your trotting about on your horse, you always have somewhere to go, and obstacles to get around. Its difficult to explain without making it sound boring, but it just works, and really bloody well!

Oh please, lightweights... I've got a backlog on Wii U, Vita and 3DS in addition to your list
This may not go down well with some but I played this on the PS3 and found the controls were absolutely horrific. This developer has form with poor controls so do prepare for this to be awful in that department. Ruin an otherwise outstanding game.
Good price though, heat!
I wonder if we'll see similar treatment for Ico. Looking forward to delving into this again. Not sure about everyone else but for me Ueda really delivered on The Last Guardian too. Such a spectacular trilogy of games.

I know, I've got too many games and not enough time and this week I've ordered this, Sine Mora EX on Switch and Prey. Why do we do it?
I always wanted to play this, but seeing as I already know the ending and the barbaric things I have to do to get there, I don't know if I can bring myself to do it

It's being remade by Bluepoint, I watched a video interview the other day, which hinted at "different" controls schemes, probably just modernizing them to feel more familiar to people

X is now the jump button & dodge is ascribed to the O button.

The US is getting a special edition with art cards and various bits if that's what you mean.

Quite annoying tbh that we don't seem to be getting it here meaning you need to order from the US if you want it but on the other hand it should hold its value quite nicely not only because it's a pain to get but also because it's SotC.
I absolutely loved The Last Guardian. I think I should probably buy this.

I know. I want Nier Automata, this and Bayonetta 1+2 on Switch. I either need to work more to be able to afford these games, or work less to have time to play them.
Instabuy and Instaheat .... Been looking forward to this

Oh good effort! Maybe they will add in additional control schemes that can be changed in the options menu too. Fingers crossed anyway, whatever gets more people playing it, the better!

It was available on amazon.com but has since sold out. Gamestop.com have it listed and will ship internationally - $49.99 + $14.99 shipping. There's no Amazon-style customs deposit system, though, so be prepared for another £10-20 fee on top of that if you're unlucky

I regretted missing it (and Ico) the first time around on PS2 but got the HD remasters on PS3 (so second time around? 1.5 time around?) about 5 years ago and fell in love with them. I think they still hold up really well, despite slightly clunky controls (which I think was always a problem) but I'm looking forward to this remake because I want to see what they've kept the same and what they've done differently, if anything (17th colossus maybe?).

I hope so - I'm currently playing through Ico again on the PS3 before replaying Shadow of the Colossus HD in preparation for the remake and I'm really appreciating what a well designed game it is. Just beautiful visuals and audio and really tight game design. I only wish the controls weren't so clunky as that's really messing with my attempts at a speedrun for the last trophy I need...

What about PC? My Steam backlog is longer than my ones on all of those consoles combined.
A top game but really this has been re-mastered already for PS3 and then PS4 making it one of, if not the only, game to have existed on 3 of the 4 PlayStation platforms.

It looks good but make some new original games instead of just recycling old stuff. I guess for people who haven't played it before it is great but I am not interested in returning to the same games over and over as they are re-mastered. I want new interesting, original games.

Also the only game worth remastering for all three, IMO. You've answered your own criticism, though - it's such a classic that it ought to be brought up to scratch for those who missed it - or, like me, miss it because we can't go back and play it on PS2s and PS3s we don't own any more.

And as for new, interesting, original games, I think Sony have done more than enough this last 18 months to put that criticism to bed. It's a tired argument to wheel out every time there's a remaster. If they were remastering Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 I'd understand, but this is arguably the best game of its generation.

As already said, GameStop seems to be the only place right now.

It does suck that you get hit with customs on it but I can vouch for GameStop always being amazing service for me in the past. Even for TLoU Post Pandemic edition, my bank rejected the charge under fraud protection and they really went above amd beyond to sort it for me, especially as it was sold out at release even though Game here cor comparison would just cancel your order and say tough. Plus their shipping has always been fantastic for me; things from them have managed to arrive quicker than even some things sent through Royal Mail and so $15 is nothing to me for that.

One thing though, bear in mind you'll need a spare US PSN account to redeem the codes the game will have as it's a NA region game.
If you got a Dash Button and haven't got anythign witht he Dash Discount teh it will eb £18
Heat for the price, but it's single-player -> I'll wait :).
