Totally the easiest buy until November. The people who don't buy this, or who shun it for the latest generic, boring FPS bloodfest need rounding up and putting on an island of their own... away from the rest of civilisation, just in case they decide to breed and pass on their twisted personality traits. ;)
This is the second chance people have to play these games without paying over the odds for the rare PS2 copies, or the third chance in the case of Europe where it Ico got a re-release. I suggest anyone who fancies themselves a gamer pre-order it this instant. They're more than games... they both transcend the medium, they move you on the exact same level a Hollywood classic film would, or a brilliant piece of art, or poem. If all you know is how to point a virtual gun and pull the trigger, I ask you, nay... BEG you to do yourselves a favour and experience something from the mind of a true auteur... and believe me, Fumito Ueda is no less an auteur than the likes of Hitchcock and Kubrick. You owe it to yourselves.
i've alway's wanted to own shadow of the colossus.. and ICO has alway's peeked my interest. It's just one of those things that just never seem's to happpen.. I've had multiple friends tell me about these 2 games and how wonderful they are. So when i saw that this was getting a 2in1 release i realised here was my chance.. and the release date is perfect.. because i can play shadow and ico until 11/11/11 wich is the date SKYRIM comes out...
These are two games best savoured, but I also don't think they'll last him from September to November. I try to do just two Colossi a day for SotC... any more seems like I'm gorging myself with something too special. To build upon that gastronomic analogy, It's like caviar... you don't shovel that stuff in your face, whereas a generic FPS shooter is a cheap sandwich with which you can stuff your face at will. :)
