Videogame publishing nowdays :datass: .

The game itself has increased from £29.99 to £34.99 in the PS Store, too. I think the wealth of magnificent reviews made them think that they could jack up the price.

Snap, Oyster. I felt like a boss when I took down that second one :datass: :) .

I'm stuck on the third one, though... I don't know what I have to do to make the beast appear. I've swam over to the thin pathway that rises out of the water and walked to the top of it, but nothing happens. Do I have to jump to the midde section of rock? I've tried that a couple of times but I keep falling back down to the water.

Beat the third colossus :-). What a game!

Had to look online for a tip on breaking the colossus' armour so that I could climb up it, though.

Took me wee while to beat the third, kept falling off. Feeling like a boss also 8-)

Done the 4th. Looked up had the strategy right but had to play waiting game to mount it....

So good

4 down here too.

Am I the only one that's had to switch back to Classic controls? I kept jumping off Agro and then whistling for him when I was trying to climb up a Colossus.

Switched the controls round and its much better, only issue is now there isn't a dedicated roll button.

Would anyone here like my Amazon code for the PS4 theme and in-game sword? Free to the first person who wants it!

And then I went and bought it :lol:

I had 40 quid credit so I said strawberry float it and picked this up. Its absolutely stunning. Probably the best remaster I've ever seen and puts trash like the Bioshock remaster to absolute shame.

It is ridiculously good looking.

I don't think its fair to compare it to a normal remaster though, its not really a remaster when all the graphics have been completely redone. Its really a complete graphical remake overlayed on top of the original game.

All I can say is in a world where "Remaster" generally means "a lacklustre up-res'd re-rerelease that introduces more bugs than it fixes" a la the Master Chief Chronicles or Bioshock Collection, this is easily the greatest "remaster" ever, tho it its more of a remake than remaster alright. .
