Ico (PS3) – Playlog 3

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 7 hrs Finished 6 Achievements – Armed and Ready East Gate West Gate Farewell Royal Arms Bench Warmer   I got a quick hour in on Friday night – again not particularly difficult with the exception of one room which I needed to Google and it turns out Ico…

Ico (PS3) – Playlog 2

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 2 hrs 1 Achievement – Failure   Nothing particularly challenging so far with the exception of one puzzle room where I eventually relented after 30 mins and Googled for a walkthrough (only read up to what I was supposed to do in that room).  Turned out I’d already tried…

Ico (PS3) – Playlog 1

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 30 mins 1 Achievement – Rescue   My copy of The Surge for PS4 arrived today so it was a tough run thing to not put the PS3 away in favour of the PS4.  I decided that I’d go arse backwards with the Team Ico games and play Ico…

Shadow of the Colossus (PS3) – Playlog 6

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 10 hours 10 mins 16/16 Colossi Finished 3 Achievements – Final Colossus Resistance The Forbidden   As expected the final Colossus went down this evening without too much difficulty – first attempt totaling approximately 20 minutes. Have to say I called about 50% of the ending well in advance…

Shadow of the Colossus (PS3) – Playlog 5

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 9 hours 50 mins 15/16 Colossi 2 Achievements – Shielded Colossus Valley of the Fallen   This post is a bit delayed as I had a late night last night trying to take down the final Colossus but I’ll cover that later. Colossus 14 was pretty much a rehash…

Shadow of the Colossus (PS3) – Playlog 4

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 6 hours 50 mins 13/16 Colossi 4 Achievements – Agro Circus Guardian Unleashed Silent Thunder Signs in the Sky   Finished off the final tricks for Agro whilst moving between Colossi – this is a pretty simple trophy although getting the timing for the 180 is a bit tricky….

Shadow of the Colossus (PS3) – Playlog 3

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 5 hours 10/16 Colossi 4 Achievements – Slippery Ride Wall Scaler Slumbering Caveman Unknown Tracks   A couple more nights like this and I’ll have cleared off Shadow of the Colossus which is a little disappointing as I was expecting more considering it’s cult status. I managed to pick…

Shadow of the Colossus (PS3) – Playlog 2

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 3 hours 15 mins 7/16 Colossi 4 Achievements – Path of Gravestones Aerial Dance Entombed Giant Waves of Thunder   Almost 2 more hours under my belt and 4 more Colossi have fallen to my sword. The tactics for the Colossi don’t really vary and the real puzzle seems…

Shadow of the Colossus (PS3) – Playlog 1

Difficulty – Normal Current Playtime – 1 hour 25 mins 3 Achievements – Valley Wanderer The Sloth Disturbed Sleep   Despite both my SNES Mini Classics arriving today I put off unboxing one to play Shadow of the Colossus instead. When you first boot it up you can see that it’s a beautiful game and…

Purchases this week

I’m trying not to spend too much money as we’re in the process of moving house but I finally relented and picked this up new from Amazon for just under £18. I missed these games when they were out on PS2 and originally remastered for PS3 as I wasn’t into games so heavily at those…

The difficult first post…

So… here it is – yet another video game journal… I’m starting this to document the games I play, how I play them and what I think of them.  If a games great I’ll say so, if it sucks ass – likewise but hopefully I won’t have too many of the latter and plenty of…
