Not sure what circle does.


Circle congratulates/calms down Trico, similar to what circle does when you're riding him/her.

Jump (whilst holding R1?) I knew of, circle I knew did something but wasn't sure what :fp:, but was completely unaware of square. :? Did the game explain these and I somehow missed/forgot them? But it's not a huge issue because, as Bizzle said, utilising point made him carry out all these actions anyway.

This isn't my GotY (I haven't completed it, yet) but of what I've seen so far, and saw this morning, I can see why it's in many a 2016 GotY list. If it gets its hooks into you then you're in for a good time. Even if the gameplay isn't radically new or anything.

It doesn't explain any of them, but in the area you first learn to control Trico there are a load of crates you can practice the attack command on.

Does it even need to explain them? I thought it was fairly obvious straight away that they do :shifty: (whatever command a button does for the boy; when you hold R1 it makes Trico do that command instead).

It may not need to but it's a flawed way of doing things because it *does* tell you of how to command Trico with R1 point and jump, so why not the other buttons? Add in the heavy-handed use of control pop ups and it's a bizarre mix of hand holding and figure this gooseberry fool for yourself. Weird.

Apart from, you know, clapping.

EDIT I WAS WRONG

It definitely tells you that one though.

If it wasn't for this topic I would have no idea you could this except for the pointing where to go which pretty much does everything anyway.

You can't command Trico to do anything until later on in the game anyway. All you can do for the first half or so is call him over to investigate stuff

Huh?

I thought these:

Cross - Stomp
Square - Attack/Hit
Circle - Praise Trico/Clapping
Triangle - Jump
Left Stick - Tell Trico where to go

It works fine for me and Trico can be amazing to listen what I told him so. :wub: At the moment, I noticed we are getting higher to the mountains and Trico's horns are growing. I expect something will happen soon, but I hope it's not going to be an awful situation. Yes, I remembered Agro. :(

Completed. I will post my view later, but for now.

It is just... simply astonishing. :wub:

Got passed that part earlier this morning and basically got to the point where Trico was th boy and it shows how the boy ended up with Trico in that cave. What happened afterwards really brought a tear to my eyes :slol: bloody wonderful game it is :wub:

Finished! My my what a lovely game, something I didn't think it would turn out to be from starting it but it just got better and better. Game of 2016 for me even if I finished it in 2017 :toot: sorry Titanfall 2, you got nudged off that top spot.

It's nice to hear about folk enjoying the game; after nine-or-so years I suspect that most people thought it'd be a huge disappointment (I did!) and its a pleasant surprise to discover that it's a gem. I had pinned NMS as my personal GOTY but I think this has just pipped it; I've recorded it as so in Celer's GOTY voting thread :toot: .

I'm glad I went in mostly blind / with zero expectations (other than thinking/hoping it would be, at best, an okay game) due to not being a fan of Ueda's previous games.

Some of my favourite screens:

No story spoilers, they're more spoilers of moments between the Kid and Trico.

His stare would freak me out but this was back when we weren't bestest buds
Image

Colourful glass eye. Utter gooseberry fool(s).
Image

Aldro spin-off DLC, when?

Image

I turned around and... :lol:
Image

His master's bud's voice
Image

Ceiling dogcat is watching you masturbate
Image

D'aw
Image

That light...
Image

Seeing him move through that doorway with that light hitting his face and eyes. Wow.

Image


My favourite section of the game had to be toward the end with Trico jumping the ever increasing gaps between the two towers.

I started playing this with WatchDogs 2 being GotY. Whilst The Last Guardian didn't depose WD 2, it did make a very good argument as to why it should be co-GotY.

You took some great shots, SoK, and that one is my personal favourite. It looks terrific!

You're quite right abou the fantastic lighting and colouring during the game - screenshots can look excellent but you don't get that sense of movement and awe unless you're actually playing. What a game* :wub: .

* Note: I don't think everyone would enjoy it and I can see why some folk may find it slow, dull and frustrating... but I thought it was wonderful.

Full version of screenshots can be seen via right click > view image.

Yeah, screens obviously cannot get across the movement, but they also lack much of the finer detail seen when playing the game; that light in the towers sections was *beautiful*. Screen doesn't do it justice.

So, I've completed it a few days ago and it's definitely my Game of the Year 2016. Dare I say, it's one of the best games of all time and I have never experienced anything like it. I mean, the bond with Trico and you could see the development of his behaviour during the journey from the beginning to the end. It was just... amazing. Not only this, most of you covered what I want to say as well.

Also, I do not care what the others said or have been gave some negative comments, but I think it is just simply astonishing and a masterpiece.

Trico. :wub:

Some screenshots I'd taken throughout the game, most likely contain location spoilers..
