Aha, he headed the thread fake video and then decided it was real. Apparently its a late 06/early 07 build.

Looks shit.

Whatever it is/was it's a lovely video.

Whether we'll ever see a game as nice looking and as atmospheric as that is another thing.

I dunno. Crappy Jappy stuff like that might have been good 15 years ago but bores me rigid now.

It looks like a (sub) Tomb Raider with a stupid pet fuzzy animal in it to get in the way and give stupid puzzle solutions to me.

I haven't found either of them cheap enough to warrant a purchase, which I suspect might be the problem :)

Haven't played GTFO, is that any good?

Seriously, When I was buying cracking stuff on the 360 for £20-£30, SOTC was still >£30 and its never had a budget rerelease has it?

Yeah, can't see it for cheap on any of the price comparison sites.

I only had a PS2 when SotC came out, and I bought it for full price like the killer-app it was :)

Both games are probably the best I've ever played. They stay with you. Even this new trailer is getting me nostalgic for the old games :)


Disclaimer: I'm not really into shooty-shooty space marine games, so that might be a factor. :P

I'm not either- I used to play FPS on my PC back when UT was cutting edge. I can't cope with a console controller for FPS :(

Erm... SotC? Okay not quite as beautiful looking then, but still. :)

Not sure about the design of the massive creature, but the footage does indeed look great. The trailer reminds me of King Kong, the way the boy is (presumably) running away from the monster only for it to turn out to be this huge friendly, brilliantly-animated creature. How awesome would it be if you could fly on its back too, Neverending Story-style.

Reminds me of Iron Giant. I'm a sucker for kid-riding-on-the-shoulder-of-a-giant imagery :)


I kinda feel guilty for watching this trailer. All the mystery surrounding the game and it gets blown wide open by four minutes of leaked year-old footage. Feels like more than we were meant to see, at this point.

Teaser trailer would've been cooler :)

This is... one of the worst posts I've read on this forum (largely because of the phrase "Crappy Jappy stuff"). You haven't been possessed by one of the characters from the EG comments threads, have you, bill? Or by morriss? ^^;

I partially don't know what came over me, but I get really fed up (from a western perspective) of all these games getting ruined by strange Japanese quirks. I love Final Fantasy Tactics but can't help think it would be even more awesome if I didn't ride around on Big Bird, for example.

I've had enough stuff on import over the years (Hellfire and Gynoug on the Megadrive were the first two Japanese imports I got, so I'm not new to it) to have reached the point where I've sort of had enough of the quirkiness of it all.

Perhaps I'm just tired and in a bad mood :)

I've got to admit, kitty-dragon is going to take some explaining if you're playing Trico and someone walks in the room who's not au fait with Team Ico's stuff.

But lets face it, all of Team Ico's games are broken in some way or other. Ico has shitty combat, SotC has some pretty major graphical glitches and some occasionally weird controls, but they're still the best adventure games on the PS2. If the only thing wrong with Trico is a gay looking kitty-dragon, it's going to be awesome.

If those Ico boys want to rub shit in my hair they can, as I trust them to do it in an incredibly unique and engaging way.

That said, design of the kitty-thing does look a little odd... but I'd give this team the benefit of the doubt all the way.

I want to hug the gay-kitty-dragon :)

(And as cute as it looks, it's clearly gonna turn nasty at some point. Yikes!)

It's like I always say, billdoor: them crazy Japs.

/has played both ICO and SOTC

Both are average and nothing more IMO. ICO suffers from terrible controls and SoTC is a good idea ruined by very basic bosses

The Trico trailer was apparemtly real BTW

First day order: Confirmed. Yep just from that footage. It looks to do exactly what Team Ico are good at. Partner two entities together in a way that should ensure the gameplay is as good as the visuals. I like the big gay kitty creature. Sort of like a hybrid between a cat, hyena, drago and countless other species.

Phew!

I love the kitty-dragon, and you're right, above all, it looks believable. They've got the animations done beautifully, and the facial animation already looks amazing. You can really feel the emotion on both their faces.

Argh, this doesn't make the wait any easier!

If rumours are to be believed and that footage really is around two years old, then what are the chances of a proper unveiling of the latest build at E3, and for that unveiling to blow everyone's socks off? In fact it might all just be a clever trick by Sony - 'leak' early footage to get everyone excited, and then show them what the game really looks like now. Oh yeah, and the game is almost finished and will be out this year... etc. Follow that up with the PS3 slim unveiling.

Good timing for me too - I was really close to (finally) starting ICO the other day, but I decided to go for LostWinds instead. Once that's done though I'll be booting up the PS2, stat.

Get Ico played, that is all.

If that's a 2 year old build then I'm guessing that's why the main character looks a bit duff. The kitty thing is just incredible though. Watched the trailer again and all the tiny tiny little chaotic movements and animations that go into everything from its expressions to its random yawns, shudders and shakes. Just breathtaking.

I'd easily have preferred a film about something like this than the upcoming SotC film.

Would've been smart from a marketing standpoint, too.

'Cos let's face it, these games don't exactly sell.

From wiki

Shadow of the Colossus's commercial reception was positive, with sales of 140,000 copies in its first week at retail in Japan, reaching number one in the charts. Almost 80% of the initial Japanese shipment was sold within two days. These figures compare favorably with Ico, which was well received by critics but failed to sell a significant number of copies. The game was placed on Sony's list of Greatest Hits titles on August 8, 2006.
