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.)

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.

YAY!
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
