i love this game so much
Has anyone sat down to translate the runes on the final weapon in ICO? It has the same look as Yorda’s language.
Shadow of the Colossus played normally:
Ohh, so pretty this land we’re riding through. Agro you’re so cute. Wander you’re so clumsy and cute. Colossi you’re so beautiful and cute and I feel like a terrible person stabbing you. :( Also what a fascinating, morally ambiguous world. I feel melancholy playing this.
Shadow of the Colossus time attack:
WANDER YOU PIECE OF SHIT COME ON FUCK FUCK FUCK YOU GODDAMN STUPID HORSE GET ON YOUR HORSE WANDER DAMMIT DAMMIT DIE DIE DIE YOU FUCKING ROCK MOSS MONSTER I HATE ALL OF YOU
Imagine person A becoming self-destructive (drugs, self-harm, risky behavior) and suicidal after person B’s death. (Bonus - imagine character B’s ghost seeing this and being horrified, but being unable to confront OR comfort person A.)
Sketch so far
kids are hard to draw
That is just too precious. Love the contrast in their expressions - I could see Wander being a shy kid.
Yorda and Ico are very precious and must be protected
After all these years I finally played and finished #ICO - beautiful #game (at The Majamaki Residence)
Important thing to remember if frustrated by Agro’s controls:
This is not Zelda. You’re not controlling Agro directly like you more or less do with Epona or the Loftwing. You are still controlling Wander who is riding Agro.
Just give the horse enough rein to do his own thing, he has a mind of his own and knows his own limits. You don’t need to oversteer on narrow ledges - Agro’s got it figured out and will turn as needed. If you need to maintain top speed, tell Agro that - keep tapping the horse button while turning and he’ll stay at full gallop.
I am a small whimpering ball of Shadow of the Colossus feels.
Endgame observations (yeah, spoilers. For um a nearly ten-year-old game):
This is probably my favourite You Were There cover.

Wander and the Colossus, by Jason Scheier.
Someone needs to tell me why a Shadow of the Colossus movie should be an actual thing. - SM
What. The. The film is still a thing. I’m.
…You know, if they release it as a promo to announce The Last Guardian finally coming out, it could be the crappiest game movie to ever be crap and I’d be all right with that, but otherwise… what. Also: why.
I could see SotC as a miniseries, maybe, but you’d have to like go into the backstory with flashbacks or something and have an episode per Colossus. And then it would still break a lot of things because half the reason the game is so beautiful is how vague the plot is. Players get out of it what they bring to it.
The other half is the fact that it’s a videogame so it’s not just Wander out killing the Colossi, you are, and you, the player, have to decide for yourself if it’s worth it or not. All that delicious moral ambiguity. I just can’t see that surviving Hollywood - Domin will be unambiguously evil, and/or Wander will be unambiguously good (and probably an action hero which he really isn’t, that’s part of the appeal, Wander’s clumsy and awkward and clearly not in the ideal shape for this kind of thing), etc.
