Well, this game might actually convince me to get a PS4 (if it actually ends up getting released this time).

The Japanese are truly strange.

Watched the video. My three immediate impressions:

1. That Trico call is going to get old pretty quickly.
2. That kid is pretty fuckin' wreckless.
3. It looks quite beautiful to me, but something tells me people are going to bitch about the graphics. Graphics have gotten increasingly sharp and complex, and this doesn't look all that different from the footage they released more than half a decade ago.

From what I heard, they supposedly had put development of the game on hold because the AI they wanted to develop for the game would have been too complex for the PS3. Apparently, they're now moving forward with it because they can make it the way they want it to be on the PS4. :roll:

Shadow of the Colossus also struck me as graphically inferior to many of the other games that were coming out on the PS2 at the time. I mean, the visuals were beautiful, but the graphics were often very pixelated and not all that sharp. It became a (cult) classic regardless.

There is something 'deliberate' about that kids level of detail an animation. Like it's supposed to make you recall Manga without actually being Manga. You notice it when you see him close up.

Just in case it's not clear, I'm totally on board with the look of The Last Guardian.

I wasn't sure how well Shadow of the Colossus stacked up, graphically, to its contemporaries. I wasn't actively comparing games at the time. It was part of the ten-plus-year stretch where I had almost completely turned my back to modern gaming. YouTube has helped me get a better sense for where modern gaming is.

Modern gaming is Batman and CoD and then other stuff! How dare you pretend there is anything else!
