Can't We Be Friends? by Eksafael Can't We Be Friends? by Eksafael
I just finished playing Shadow of the Colossus last night, and I have to say I always felt bad killing the colossi. They're so cool and majestic.... Plus, a few of them reminded me of giant teddy bears, with those round, adorable eyes. Sometimes, I wished Wander would just forget that stupid dead girl and ride the colossi in fan-f***ing-tastic adventures that didn't involve killing each other.

Bit of a doodle that turned into not-so-much of a doodle. The design of the colossus roughly follows one of the 16, but it's not exact, seeing as they're a bit ridiculous to get a look at while fighting and to find a profile shot of one via internet is pretty impossible too... or at least it was for me. :D

(Also, sorry about the zoom size, but I wanted you to at least see some of the detail I put into Wander.)

I know what you mean; sometimes I almost feel sorry for the Colossi; sure the sixth Colossus is said to lust for power, but even then, like most of the Colossi, he's just protecting his territory. Hell, the thirteenth Colossus seems outright peaceful, not so much a vile monster as such a giant bird-dragonfly thing minding its own business.

This is pretty much what I have been imagining a few past days. It would be awesome if I could just be friends with the colossi. I would love to be Cenobia's friend. I just love that little guy and always feel extra bad killing it.. It just wanted to chill and guard its lair. And then I come and kill it.

This is cool. Me and a buddy just beat Shadow of the Colossus for PS3.
Its my 40th time and his first playing.

Oh man, is that an actual 40 or are you guessing? Because if I could keep track, I'd be about there too.
And thanks, lol. I have both the original for PS2 and the ICO and Shadow of the Colossus collection for PS3 . . . not gonna lie, just for the trophies (yesssss).

its a guesstimate. And I used to have the PS2 version and had everything beaten and unlocked. Then I let my asshole half brother borrow it and he kept all my games and PS2 then pawned them later for cash.
Anyway long story short I got the PS3 collection, and I am noticing it feels a lot more buggy when trying to hold onto fur and keeping Wanderer stable. Makes Time Trials almost impossible. But I love both games, and the PS3 version was my first time at Ico since its been hard to find for PS2.

i think part of the reason why this game is so great is that you really DO feel guilty for killing all of the Colossi. this pic is so cute i love the idea behind it
