Shadow of the Colossus: Help Us Decide Which Wallpapers to Make

The top five reader-voted picks will get the full wallpaper treatment starting next week.

With the impending release of Shadow of the Colossus on PS4, we’re working with Bluepoint Games to create some new high-res desktop and mobile wallpapers. There’s just one problem: there are lots of colossi to choose from!

So, we’re leaving it to you. Vote below for the colossus you’d most like to see a wallpaper for. We’ll tally the votes on January 29, and Bluepoint will get to work. Then, starting January 31, we’ll release the top five reader-voted wallpapers as we count down the days until the ground-up rebuild launches on PS4.

  • Ummmm, maybe you know, include a picture of each one, instead of just leaving it up to people to vote on arbitrary numbers? I’ve played this game many times and have the platinum on the ps3 remaster, yet I still couldn’t say with confidence which number equates to which colossus.

  • Not so clever, if you think that people will get the time to go google which coloss number refer to which… good luck

  • Can’t vote: I don’t remember which Colossus is each, and also there 16 Colossus.

    By the way, there were another 8 Colossus that were cut down: how about adding those to the poll?

  • kyoshinhen2

    I hope GAIUS is number 3

  • Might as well ask what is your favorite number…

  • This is a weird pool, the last time I play sotc is decades ago, how the heck I know what is colossus 6, colossus 9, or other colossus number??

    And no, I’m not going to google all of them.

  • onslaughtree

    #14 Destruction Luster.

  • My favorite is the one you fight in the cave….I can’t remember which number that is!!

  • Why wouldn’t you add a simple picture next to each #?

    Where was captain obvious when this was hatched? Lunch?

  • Here’s a rough guide to help people remember which colossi is which:

    1. Valus (Minotaur A)
    2. Quadratus (Mammoth)
    3. Gaius (The Knight)
    4. Phaedra (Horse)
    5. Avion (Bird)
    6. Barba (Bearded Minotaur or Minotaur B)
    7. Hydrus (The Eel)
    8. Kuromori (Gecko)
    9. Basaran (The Tortoise)
    10. Dirge (Sand Snake)
    11. Celosia (The Lion)
    12. Pelagia (Poseiden, or what I like to call the Gorilla)
    13. Phalanx (Sand Dragon)
    14. Cenobia ( Cerberus-similar to Celosia, but heavily armored)
    15. Argus (Minotaur with cleaver, or Minotaur C)
    16. Malus (What I refer to as Zeus)

    Here is a link to the wiki with photos in case you need to jog your memory:

    Cheers!

    • BTW I Think my favorite game play wise is Dirge (even though he is a pain in the @$$! haha), but I love the way Kuromori looks!

    Sorry for the double post, but I want people to see this to help aid in the voting process, and the link I added in the last one is still awaiting moderation.

    Cheers!

  • Number 3. The knight is the best. When it swings that sword down on the tabletop and shakes the whole place, it’s epic.

  • @Justin, this post needs pictures of the Colossi and their names. “Colossus 1 to 15” tells me absolutely nothing about what they look like…

    The last Flash Sale was A COMPLETE DISASTER.
    Not only it was very lackluster content-wise…but the PS Store was completely broken during the whole thing.
    And you didn’t even bother to create a blog post about it, listing all the discounts.

    You’re going from fiasco to fiasco.

    And now you’re just making posts about some overpriced shoes and wallpapers.
    Seriously?

    How is it possible that this company is still ahead in the so-called console wars? It baffles me.
    Oh, right. Because MS dropped the ball big time this generation.

    There’s a limit of how much you can pull thanks to a great console before alienating people. Step up your game, Sony…because you’re too close to dropping the ball and losing the game.

    Do a better job at communicating with your customers. FIX YOUR DAMN STORE. And work on better deals for your Sales.
    Because this is lame.

    Don’t forget that it was the PlayStation brand that saved the whole company last year. You need to start treating it with a little bit more respect than the laziness you’ve been displaying lately.

    • Inresurrection

      Is there really a need for so much anger? You’re right, the last flash sale wasn’t great but I wouldn’t call it a fiasco. Come on. Being the way you’re being doesn’t help anybody. Calm down.

    • Tridrakious

      Wow, sounds like you’re just having a miserable time with the system. Whereas nearly seventy-five million other people seem to be having a good time.

  • #5 Avion is the best of the whole bunch. The intense sense of speed and danger of what could happen if you mess up is so well done for a game and console that should not have been able to pull that off.

    • Avion is definitely a big favorite of mine, too. You don’t forget your first flying colossus.

  • Picture’s a bit small, but I found this. Has the numbmers listed by them, though you may need to zoom in.

  • I did a google search and there’s an image with the silhouettes and their corresponding numbers. I hope the link works. If it doesn’t then just know that it was on the first or second page of the image search.

  • rightontargt4

    how do i vote for colossus 69

  • the last one better .huge and pretty old players can remmeber and new playrs must love

  • god forbid people have to do research before voting….

    I like 6(Barba) he was one of the easiest but i liked his design, and i liked climbing his face for the first time.

    Game is a masterpiece.

  • I’ve got a feeling that 3 is gonna win but I’m gonna go with 13.
