I call best buy and of course they don't have anymore in stock so they can only give me a refund.

Dude, that totally sucks. I'm so sorry for you. Very unlike Best Buy there

Mine is arriving today from Amazon, apparently. Odd that it didn't make release date but as long as it's here today, and actually the CE, I'm okay with it.

In Best Buy's defense, they are sold out. What else should they do?

Move fast, back up at Amazon. Granted, you won't get the discount any longer, but at least you still get a copy.

Amazon Amazon

To clarify I didn't expect them do anything else. I knew it would be sold out and they would just give me a refund. It also wasn't their fault and was UPS's so I wasn't upset with them. The guy was super friendly on the phone and the whole thing only took like 5 minutes to take care of.

I'm not a collector so I'll just pickup a regular version instead. I did get the preorder bonus code in the email so I got something from the special edition at least.

Actually, it's different stuff. They both contain 16 Colossi Avatars, but they're different ones. There's one static theme for preordering the game and two more in the SE. There's a bonus DLC Life Sword for preordering and there's other DLC items in the SE (Ancient Bow, Cloak of Fate, "Spotted Steed" Agro skin).

The different themes and avatars are shown here :



I got mine tonight. The outer box that the SE comes with is quite nice, but the Steelbook itself is pretty disappointing honestly.
You're not missing much Q.

It's been so long I'm sure I'm missing the reference, but why is 3 circled on the back of the steelbook?

That is the Colossus depicted on the front.

I took down the first four colossi today. I forgot how beautiful yet kinda sad this game could be, yet at the same time look forward to getting back to it.

Yeah, I feel like such an asshole each time I bring down one of these magnificent beasts.

The 8th one finally killed me. It is a sad feeling when you take these guys down.

Re: Shadow of the Colossus (Remake) - PS4 - 2/6/18

Never made it to the end on the PS3 version. But, I'm on the last colossus as of last night. While the camera can still be an issue (wish you could turn of auto-center) I really like the modern control scheme.

Like others, it's amazing that I still feel bad for taking the big guts down. And WOW! The game is gorgeous even on a standard PS4.

Re: Shadow of the Colossus (Remake) - PS4 - 2/6/18

I have to take back my initial reactions to this game. I thought it was a remake in complete HD, but it has come to my attention that the game aslo features filters that give it the same appearance it had on PS2. Not to adjust my glasses in a hip manner, but I felt the game looked amazing as it originally appeared and found HD ports to be unnecessary. Sad that I missed out on the steel case, but I'll eventually grab this at some point.

glad I Redbox'd this one (TLG led me to believe that would be a good idea)
shit controlls once again
that bridge jump to the 3rd Colossi was the last straw .... would have broke the disc had it been mine

I've read that complaint a few times, I haven't had an issue with the controls but I'm only on around Colossi #8.

They give you a bunch of different controller presets. I think there are six variations total. I haven't had nearly the amount of issues that I had with the PS2 version.

I'm having a blast. I just took down #8 today, so half way through.

Re: Shadow of the Colossus (Remake) - PS4 - 2/6/18

Started this last night, never played any of the earlier versions -- although I own it on PS3, possibly through Plus?

Anyway, I whacked 6 of them last night in 1:45 on normal. Am I moving too fast, is there other stuff I should be doing besides find colossus, kill colossus? I did stumble upon 1 fruit and 1 altar. The play through times I saw were all close to 8 hours. At my rate I'll be done easily under 5. My playing style in other games usually fits in right with average playthrough times.

Re: Shadow of the Colossus (Remake) - PS4 - 2/6/18

If you finish in 5 then you are doing fine. The game was never meant to be a long journey but rather an introspective one. They did originally plan to have something like 48 Colossi but then narrowed it down to around 24 and finally settled on 16. It would be cool to see a spiritual sequel to this one with new Colossi and in a different or even the same land.

I usually slow down to take out some lizards to build up my stamina. I've also been exploring a little bit for coins. So far I've come across 3 or 4. Other than that, just enjoying the scenery between my murdering rampage.

ended up taking the 7.5 hours to finish. got harder to find and longer to kill those sumofabitches. I was angrily reminded this was a PS2 game by the wonky controls and camera angles while trying to climb the last Colossus.

I finished this tonight and ran into the same issue. Everything seemed to be going fine until the final Colossus. Still a fantastic game and one of my all time favorites.
