Zelda game's aren't perfect, but I'm optimistic about this one. My only worry is that Nintendo EAD has lost their little magical charm in the Zelda series.

In comparison to Link's Awakening, Link to the Past, Ocarina of TIme, and Majora's Mask, something magical just felt missing from the newer games, both console and handheld. Perhaps that's just my own growing up.

At least Skyward Sword isn't Nintendo playing it safe again like they have done with a few series in the Wii era. The most fun and underutilized feature in Twilight Princess was aiming with the infra-red pointer on the Wii Remote. These Wii+ controls could really push the series to a whole new awesome level.

You don't really know a classic while you're playing it do you?

I thought, and so do many others, that Twilight Princess was near perfection of what Zelda is.  Certainly atmospherically it was.  "Whatever is missing" is somewhat arbitrary and ambiguous, but I thought that one was indeed a classic.  And while I do think Phantom Tracks and Spirit Glass or whatever were lacking (hell, it seems like Nintendo themselves kinda took the easy route with those and just made some shit off the wheels of Wind Waker), the Capcom ones were brilliant to say the least for a handheld adventure.

More than anything, I'll have faith in Nintendo.  More often than not they make one helluva good game with their "main hero" brands (ie; Mario, Metroid, Zelda, Kirby, whatev).

Beat it. 

The 16th Colossus is not hard by any means, but the poor physics made it an absolute nightmare.  The colossus is static for the most part, but for some reason I was still teetering like I was on a rocking boat.  I even fell numerous times because of "glitchy flooring".  I'm not really enthused to take on time attack, I might just give it a go on the PS2 version instead.  Challenge is one thing, but this is waay too much based on luck and "hoping" to land a hit before the clock runs out.

I did time attack the 2nd colossus with a tricky tactics (take out a rear leg, quicker to scale him from there), and even with that I only had 30 seconds to spare -- he's one of the easy ones!

Haha sorry.  I love a good challenge, but I don't like stressing myself out for time limits... hate time-based challenges. =/

I got cornered and could *not* recover even *once* before the next ramming



;D

Started El Shaddai, the visuals are amazing, but I'm not loving the combat (needs some spice).  Anyway, the visuals sure are trippy; there's definitely not anything quite like it.  I'm just not sure if it's a game for me, I'll play a few more chapters before I decide. 

It *should* grow on you.  When you figure out fights, it's kinda rewarding.  Surpisingly complex battles for only 2 main butons.  The visuals are nice, and Lucifel talks to god on a cell phone.  lawlz.

But even given Ico's age, I still say its held up nicely.  Certainly better than a lot of PS2 games released around when it was.

Good luck with time attack, folks:

Won't be easy if Wander is suffering 'spaghetti arm'. =/

Only have one more Colossus to go. 

13, the fan favourite, was pretty fun.  Kinda nice to have an easier, more carefree battle without worried about getting your ass stomped or electrocuted, especially just before the final stretch.  He's a bitch to keep up with though...
14 was a pain in the ass the first time around till I adjusted my tactic.  Funny how the shorter colossus' are more of a threat than their 500 ft tall brethren.
15 was weird.  The "collision detection" wasn't too spot on, so I needed him to hammer about a bit before opening my path.  Great way to finish him off though.

I realized why everyone loves Agro: In a land this lonely, he's like your best and only buddy.  I always get a warm and fuzzy feeling when he comes whenever he's called.  What a nice horsie, he likes me! 
hehe, anyone else love how Wander goes "AGRO!!!" when you need him for a colossus fight?  I get this subtext of "AGRO GET YOUR ASS OVER HERE BEFORE WE GET F****D".

Finally died to the 14 th Colossus.  Damned stupid.  The "ramming" really blows, I got cornered and could *not* recover even *once* before the next ramming.  To watch it happen without being able to do anything sucked serious nut. =(

While the battles aren't too bad... I realized Time Attacking is gonna be a serious issue...

EDIT: GameFaqs-ers have more or less proved that the grip for Wander has become much weaker this time around (doing time attacks on PS2 and PS3).  Joy. =/

That, and/or Japanese just suck at graphics nowadays.

Admittedly that never was really Falcom's forte. They were more about making pleasant looking graphics than mindblowing graphics, and it continues here. You want to be amazed, you're probably better off with Uncharted.

*shrug*
I dunno.  Sometimes it just feels like the effort ain't really there either sometimes too.  I give credit to the smaller guys trying though.

Clear punishment for being an asshole online.  I call it justice!  Online peeps are lucky to get away with the anonymity of the net.  Hell, look at 4chan, I'm sure half the stuff said there will get you beaten up by someone in real life haha

So lovely! :D

I take either and like an option.  Always fun to hear how both languages decide to represent a character.

This has become my OFFISHAL Colossus Slaying tune.  Not that weird chorus shit when the black crud comes out... IT'S THIS!

Took out the 11th.  Feelin' gangsta. 
This game feels easier than it did 5 years ago when I took it on.  Yay?  Am I in gaming prime and does it exist?
6161  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: TEAM ICO COLLECTION on: October 01, 2011, 05:50:12 PM
Just waited.  I pulled one today that was with Agro only, but I got lucky, the hawk just came down low enough.

Also, you can probably get the fish riding one, it's much easier to get and it's in the lake en route to Colossus 8.

Just beat the "tiny" Colossus.  Pain in the ass.  It IS easy, but getting the opportunity to attack can take a while since it times its ramming attack very nicely with when you start getting up. =(
Players who haven't beaten the 11th yet, DUCK AND ROLL.

I was also happy when the Tortoise and Sand Worm didn't give me as much trouble as they did the first time I played the game.  L1 and Agro become my best friends.

Colossus #5 was incredible. I was blown away by the rush of speed the game conveys

Look at this asshole do it.  What's even more amazing is that the better part of a minute is just getting to him (skipped that ahead for ya).  THE BEST is how he gets from one wing to the other.

Well, I guess I don't wear either enough...
