Shadow of The Colossus got a New Life?

in #gaming3 years ago (edited)


Hello everyone! How are you doing? Everything fine?
I'm great, thank you for asking. Having a cup of warming drink. And my mood is great, I'll tell you why in a short moment.
Finally, there are signs that the freaking Ice Age is coming to an end.
And we can take off the fur coat without fear of catching a cold.
What are you going to say now, John Snow? Winter is no more!
My studying is also going pretty well. Books are my best friends right now.
Seems that I'm going to tell about it in my every gaming post.
How thoughtful and magnanimous of me to remind you to study more, guys.


Okay, my today's lectures are done and we can start with the main topic which is The remastered version of Shadow Of Tthe Colossus.
I know a lot of you who played the previous releases of the game will agree that everything about this game is beautiful.
Even in 2005 when it was first introduced it looked great.
But now... I was absolutely thrilled when I've heard the announcement that they will release the game.
Can't even explain how excited I was to be able to plunge into the world of one of my favourite games again.
The nostalgy struck me like a hammer and there was absolutely no way that I could overcome my desire to play through it again.


It's an unparalleled classic that only lacked some graphics improvements to be able to look good at the present time.
Cracks in the rocks, mud that covers the surface of the lake or rays of light, that penetrate through the thicket of the forest – you can just sit and watch them for hours.
And that is not to mention colossus that now looks even better. Just look at their fur.
The game got more improvements than it needed.
Right now it looks exceptional and gives a chance to other people who haven't played it before to be able to try it out and play through this adventure.


The main story is about the young boy, who is really clumsy and weak.
He always stumbles and acts weird. But he carries a deep pain and sorrow in his heart.
And also He carries a body of his beloved one to distant lands.
He has a sword that shows him a way to a secret place where no mortal has ever been before. His purpose is to meet a spirit and to make a deal so he can bring his lady back to life.
He is ready to do anything. And that's how the story begins.
There are no tips, there is nothing. Just a boy, his horse and colossuses.
Developers took everything unnecessary from the game to make this masterpiece.


Beautiful music, beautiful... everything. I have a lot to say about the game. Some people might say that fighting is a little repeatable and in the middle, you might get tired. But it's different to me (Maybe because I'm a huge fan since 2005). It's one of the best remasters of all times.


I would talk a little longer but have to go. Time...
I really recommend trying Shadow of the Colossus.
I'm sure a lot of people will enjoy it!
I give it a rating of 9/10 potatoes.

Thanks for coming, write your thoughts about the game.
Have a wonderful time! Stay Awesome! :-)


Nice one dude!! Keep up the studying! and make sure you slack off to write some steem posts!

Hey, didn't expect you to come. You are pretty busy with the whole promoting steemit stuff lol.
I'll try my best, thanks))

Hi @starkerz !

A question here: I just realized something. What makes @steem-ambassador to make a 1% upvote or a 100% upvote?

Yesterday I received a 100% upvote of @steem-ambassador , and today I got 2 upvoted of a 1% .

Just wondering if this is some coding stuff being done, or which are the factors that determine percentages.

Regards, @gold84

Yes, great question. We still have manual override (for now, while we are in testing phase) so ur great blog got a great upvote ;) but under normal operation the guild works out how many blogs under promo steem that 3 or more ambassadors voted on and then distributes it’s remaining voting power equally between all of those blogs in order to main rain it’s power above 80%. Once it reaches 80% it stops voting and recharges back up to 99% when it starts the process again

Game looks awesome! I only noticed it recently but I may try it out after my trip to Thailand in a week. :)

Already going to Thailand? You're fast!

Just for two weeks this time. Officially moving end of October if all goes according to plan. :)

Started another one? You haven't finished The last of us yet lol.

It's one of my favourite games. How can I not buy it and support the developer for their hard work :(
And it was amazing. I tried not to spoil anything with screenshots.

Well... it's not like you can spoil anything since it's a remastered version heh.

Well, after reading one biology book for 2 days I left for school at 7:30 am and came home 8:00 pm because I also went to my first driving school classes. Then I read that same biology book about genetic engineering little more until it was 2:00 am. A solid 17-18 hour work day. I got 4 hours of sleep and today I had the biology exam and I think it went well. Probably really well.

Now I just feel utterly fatigued and I think I am going to relax for few hours after I am done with math. Wow, that's unusual.

And also thanks for reminding me to study more. I think I did enough of it :)

damn I just remembered that my 5-day holiday started :O

It's one of the future games that I have to play! This version is amazing! Nice article!


Yep, you should try it for sure! Thanks :-)

I heard of this game several years ago, though I never had the chance to play it. Maybe it's time to give the game a try with its remastered graphics and all.

Maybe the gameplay is not for everyone because there is nothing except you, nature and Colossus)
But the game has its own charm. At least worth a try :-)

Nice introduction to the game.

Indeed! :-)

It´s just like right now steem is the only game i find real interest in ;) - have fun.

This is truly an amazing game. I loved every single thing about it, I remember playing it for the first time and breaking down because my horse died. Then playing again years later and crying again... Why did my horse have to die?!

Did you love your horse a lot? :(

The visuals and concept art are amazing! It gets very high ratings from Metacritic and Polygon. I'm going to put it on my wish list. Thanks! @sadpotato

You're welcome :-)

this is a great game.
i will find your game.
This is very nice @satpotato

good for you!
