okay so this is CC's Geek Thread Bonanza Part Two.
i had the good fortune to get my hands on a copy of shadow of the collosus on the ps2. it's the unofficial "sequel" (all they have in common is the same visual style) to ico, which is one of my favourite games ever.
it's probably the best game i've ever played on any console ever. it is graphically amazing (better than most xbox stuff even), stylistically superior to everything else i've ever played and the concept is truly original.
when this comes out over here (sometime around march i think) it should be on the top of everyone's to-buy list. it be one of the very few games where, if i was pushed to give it a rating, it'd get 10/10,
