Shadow of the Colossus on PS4: New Details From Our Paris Games Week Hands-On

Posted by on Nov 03, 2017

When Shadow of Colossus made its memorable debut back in 2005, it managed something refreshingly different in modern games at the time – it changed the narrative. During an era where visual fidelity was going through a seismic shift on PlayStation 2, this Team ICO title kept its story minimalistic and its gameplay pure: hunt the looming colossi one-by-one.

But when it was announced at E3 2017 that Bluepoint Games and Japan Studio were remaking the game for PlayStation 4, the excitement was tangible. Because even though Shadow of the Colossus thrives on minimalism, the power of PS4 Pro makes a suitably colossal difference to just how affecting this already emotional game is.

The Road to The Last Guardian: A Retrospective

Posted by on Oct 06, 2016

As the actual, highly anticipated release of The Last Guardian finally nears (Yes, it’s a real game and you’re a mere few weeks away from playing it!), we’re hearing more and more from the community about how designer Fumito Ueda’s work has touched them.

Ico and Shadow of the Colossus seem to hold a special place in the hearts of their fans, though the reasons why vary depending on who you talk to.
