The lights are on
Welcome to the temple that honors Team Ico. The best place on GIO to talk about their wonderful art.
Which is your favorite colossus?
My favorite is a tie between the swordsman, the eagle, and the flying snake. The swordsman was one of those moments in gaming where I just about crapped my pants at how cool the thing I was doing in-game was. YOU RUN UP HIS FREAKIN' SWORD! HOW COOL IS THAT??? Very. Cool. The eagle is just sweet. Puncturing the wings and tail, while it barrel rolls through the sky attempting to shake you off as your energy slowly depletes is a beautiful and nerve racking experience. The flying snake is surreal and oddly reminiscent of robbing a train.... except the train is flying. And it is one of the few colossi not to attack you on sight.
'Tis not too late to seek a newer world.Push off, and sitting well in order smiteThe sounding furrows; for my purpose holdsTo sail beyond the sunset, and the bathsOf all the western stars, until I die.
Those were my exact thoughts when I saw the swordsmen!
