Not only can you take almost any still image in this game and frame it, the actual playing of the game puts you in almost a trance like state and generates a very distinguished and distinct feeling not captured by any other title I've played.

From the hidden lore, to the actual visual style of the world you're exploring, Shadows of the Colossus is a masterwork, and a true example of how powerful art can be when done properly through this medium.

Definitely a game worth playing. Some of the climbing physics were jacked, though. Getting 100% items was also pretty annoying.

It was made by the same crew that did Ico, which wasn't as good but you should try out.

Ico is definitely a classic. I got a ps2 and did the whole hard drive hack and found myself with about 180ish games that are all the AAA/top games/hidden gems, and SOTC and Ico were definitely firsts to download.

Ignoring the Ico demo for PS2 a ton of people got (pizza hut, maybe?) I didn't get around to them until they were rereleased on the PS3. still held up at that point

Old demo discs are comfy.

First thing that popped into my head when I saw the headline: "Better be a shadow of the Colossus screen."

Also: Ori and the Blind Forest.

Not just the the art, but the story told through that art and gameplay, with little to no dialogue, is phenomenally well done on both games.

CmonGubMintGibMe 5 points ago +5 / -0

I just finished Ori, absolutely phenomenal. The music, the way the story is told without blasting you with cutscenes, amazing. Can't wait to start Will of the Wisps.

the most in depth universes are from games wh40k, mass effect, elder scrolls. The list goes on.

And like real art someone can think of it as a masterpiece, or absolutely boring.

Ni No Kuni Remastered blew me away on how gorgeous it was. Loved the game play, but visually the world was awesome. The second one is even more visually appealing.

Always wanted to play this, but it never came to PC. :(

Give PCSX2 a try.

:o Was Shadow on the PS2? I thought it was a PS4 game?

TheDonkeyPirate 3 points ago +3 / -0

PS2 originally. They did an HD Shadow and Ico for PS4

AntonZap 1 point ago +1 / -0

Originally a PS2 game, released all the way back on 2005, and those graphics are a freaking marvel. Then they released a package that included Ico and shadow with HD textures on the PS3. The PS4 version is a standalone remake.

ART, noun [Latin ars, artis.] - "the disposition or modification of things by human skill, to answer the purpose intended. In this sense art stands opposed to nature".

Art is being suggested to gain consent towards ignorance of reality in favor of fiction. It's a farming tool of slavery through suggestion. Ignorance diminishes skill; because skill (to make sound) represents adaptation to reality (resonance).

So if I doodle a little stick figure, I'm opposed to nature? And then what? Like, what's the "sin" in that? What if I doodle a still life of nature? Some trees and shit. How is that opposed to nature, rather than admiration for nature?

free-will-of-choice -5 points ago +2 / -7

Like, what's the "sin" in that?

Sin represents moral codes of behavior; judged by the ONEs within ALL to restrict action under the laws of men. That's fiction aka in ignorance of reality.

Meanwhile in reality (under the laws of nature)... ALL offers ONE the free will of choice over ONEs actions. Nature does not restrict actions; it inspires through the consequences of actions.

So if I doodle a little stick figure, I'm opposed to nature?

You cannot oppose nature by your actions...ONEs state within momentum (magnetic) is defined by ALLs state within motion (electric). They represent natural opposites in coexistence to each other.

Momentum represents balance within motion; which is why you need to have a choice over action (free will) to be able to adapt to motion. The choice...adherence to self sustenance (need) or ignorance thereof (want) is what defines the consequences if your actions.

Do you need to doodle a little stick figure to sustain yourself? Nope, so you acted upon your choice of want (temptation) over need (struggle). This isn't about you making the right or wrong choice; it's about you comprehending and acting upon the need for balance between need and want. ONE cannot avoid temptation (want) within motion; ONE needs to resist want with each choice of actions to sustain self (need).

The motion we are in represents the ongoing movement from a beginning towards an end; which represents the pull (temptation) onto all the ONES within. That's why we die; because us being set into motion (inception) is defined by the end of it (death); which makes the balance in-between the "life" we need to struggle to sustain.

And then what?

What are the consequences of ignoring need (self sustenance of life) for want (temptation luring towards death)? Wants set into motion accumulates corruption of self; which emits outwards to corrupt those surrounding you.

What if I doodle a still life of nature? Some trees and shit. How is that opposed to nature, rather than admiration for nature?

ADMIRA'TION, noun - "wonder mingled with pleasing emotions". That's a want; you're seeking to be pleased; which tempts you to express emotions [Latin emotio; emoveo, to move from.]; which within a reality where motion defines direction; represents ONE choice of ignorance towards motion.

Question "still life"...life is in motion; it is not still, yet you want to capture it; hold onto it; claim ownership over it. You can't do this without ignoring the ongoing motion of it.

A better example...your children. Whenever you delve in memory about the great times you had with them; you choose to ignore being with them within the moment(um) of motion. If you would instead adhere to your need; you would generate more and more memories. Adherence to need increases the temptation of the want; which in return inspires the struggle to adhere to needs.

There's also no conflict in nature...ALL is ONE in energy. We are in coexistence within motion; which defines that all the ONEs within need to be defined by natural opposites; because motion is defined by the movement from beginning towards end: so all within needs to be in balance; in momentum.

Motion (electric) represents the natural order; the ongoing flow state of information; while momentum (magnetic) represents the chaos out of order; the temporary resistance to the velocity of motion. We are the ONEs (potential) who can transmute out of ALL (potentiality) offered; and that happens by choice of action...perception offers our senses inspiration; and our choice of adherence transmutes it into comprehended Information.

That's magnetic ONE channeling electric ALL for the sustenance of self; and that's where our parasite is feasting upon by interjecting suggestion of information (fiction); for which we ignore inspiration (reality).

ONE cannot believe another ONE to comprehend ALL; because ONE needs to channel ALL through ONEself by free will of choice. A direct connection is needed and our parasites act as the happy merchant middleman to harvest our ignored energy (potential). The way out is not conflict with the parasites (which they offer); but comprehension through adherence to self sustenance; because the parasites represent the consequences of our actions in ignorance of natural law.

Barking up the wrong tree if you want to convince me that God is fiction.

free-will-of-choice -4 points ago +1 / -5

if you want to convince me

I act upon needs (not wants); which is why I adapt to inspiration; and use my sole authority over self to do so...free will of choice. Comprehending this means that I cannot "convince" aka persuade through suggestion another without ignoring his sole authority over self (free will).

I have no intention to offer you anything that requires your consent by believing/not believing it. You perceive what I write as such an offer; because you view reality through the lens of reason (conflict between truth versus false); which is based on you consenting by free will to believe the definitions of others who act in the name of reality to define it for you; by the use of their free will of choice. They are using suggestion to get you to consent to the ignorance of free will; your sole authority over ONEself within ALL.

that God is fiction

Nature doesn't offer fiction; it doesn't offer the state of "false" information to our perception; it doesn't lie...it offers choice of action; which is defined by motion, as being between adherence (need) to the struggle of self sustenance within motion or the ignorance (want) thereof.

It is that choice of ignorance towards ALL (reality within motion) that establishes the affixed fiction within ONEs mind...the belief in affixed states (truth or false); while ignoring motion.

Don't hide behind your biggest belief to shirk responsibility towards questioning reality (motion); but instead question any small belief you consented to. Instead of consenting to the mental hamster wheel of reason (truth vs false) try to apply implication on it (if/then); which is a) in adherence to motion and b) told through the talmud.

The latter should at-least inspire you to question the implication of the contradiction between the use of reason and implication. You are endlessly arguing about truth vs false; while they utilize if/the and move on in adherence to a reality within motion (while also utilizing the suggestion of contradictions to both sides with the conflict of reason; which is called talmudic reasoning).

This brings me to another question...if implication contradicts reason; and if the talmud teaches the use of implication; then why is it called talmudic reasoning?

Opinions are still like assholes I see. Some are just more methodical in their approach to seem more genuine, but just come off as some snooty know it all. Congratulations on thinking you're always right, I'm sure that never gets old...

free-will-of-choice -2 points ago +1 / -3

thinking you're always right

If the state of "right; truth" exists; could you tell me where nature is offering your perception the state of "wrong; false"? What represents a false state within nature?

Snipthetipandsip 6 points ago +6 / -0

It's all objective, and subjective. You could make the argument that an apex predator is "wrong" within nature because of its destructive tendencies amongst a balance, yet objectively it's creation and ability to exist within nature would prove it to be correct. Without perception there is no right or wrong, but there is no "without perception" so there is right, and wrong based on the subjective view of the individuals perception.

When it comes to opinions there lies a paradox through perception of always right or always wrong. There is an agreement or disagreement of the opinion, yet it doesn't make it true or false. That being said; implying you're right because of your own perception is wrong because when it comes to opinions even if there is a disagreement it makes it neither true or false it's just an opinion.

Your opinion isn't nature, it's simply based on your suggestive view based on your own perception. It's neither right or wrong. Yet you take it a step further and imply your opinion is correct even though it's not, which, in my opinion, is wrong.

But the resonance of the stars can only be discerned from the pure spirit within. That, we are, all, in one motion, coherently disobeying the conveyance of absolute power.

So as the counterpoint of the soul speaks through art, it should not be exception nor should it be a set of proclivities, but, through one breath, can expound the nature of shapes around the tenuous but tactile elements in ones environment.

Isolated_Patriot 6 points ago +7 / -1

Pretty sure that guy's a bot. A really convoluted bullshit generator style bot.

JeremiahKassin 6 points ago +7 / -1

That or he's schizophrenic. Pretty sure that's the case. Some of his responses to my trolling him seem a little too thoughtful for a bot. Bots don't get taken aback.

Isolated_Patriot 5 points ago +6 / -1

Could always be a real user with a bullshit generator. Most of his replies are so formulaic it reads like a bot either way.

[word from previous post] bullshitified definition

Stoner philosophy unrelated (or barely related) to the topic at hand.

Then the extended replies are trying to express Universalism through continued word games but ALL read the same no matter what ONE the topic.

GulDukat 4 points ago +4 / -0

There's another user, Graphenium, that I've seen doing the same ONE and ALL shtick a few times, and slipping in some of the same sorts of references to universalism, and has even used the phrase 'the free will of choice' when getting into arguments. Either he's a different person riffing on free-will-of-choice, or that's one of his alts. My money is on the latter.

Here's just a few recent examples




Then add in that they're both active around roughly the same time, but usually not at the exact same time, they both seem to have some similar personality traits such as loving to get into argument, a virulent hatred for Jews, they both frequent /Conspiracies and /ConsumeProduct very often, but love to stir shit in other subs, seem to believe in the same pseudo-intellectual universalism malarkey, etc, and I would be willing to bet that Graphenium and free-will-of-choice are the same person. I think free-will-of-choice is the alt he uses when he wants to say some truly batshit stuff, and then he switches over to his Graphenium alt when he wants to pretend to be more of a normal person.

Isolated_Patriot 4 points ago +4 / -0

I have similar suspicion since they seem to be the only two users pushing universalism on the boards.

Snipthetipandsip 3 points ago +3 / -0

What, you've been in nerd culture and never come across one of these types? They're all the same, just with different approaches.

Them: I know more then you do, but that's my opinion, so let me fluff it up so it seems more legit.

Me: Still smells like bullshit.

That, we are, all, in one motion, coherently disobeying the conveyance of absolute power.

Ignorance; just as adherence represents a choice established by motion to the momentum (balance) within. Motion doesn't require obedience from momentum.

Both choices (need or want aka adherence or ignorance) represent the self sustenance balance for the ONEs within momentum; while the consequences of both choices (loss or recharge aka motion or momentum) represent the self sustenance function of ALL (energy in motion aka potentiality).

As for coherence within momentum...motion segregates collective ALL (potentiality) into individual ONE (potential); so only ONEs choice of adherence to self sustenance can lead to unity (coherence) with other ONEs within ALL. Coherence in ignorance simply represents going along with motion (loss) towards an end (death) aka falling for a temptation (want) instead of struggling for sustenance (need). So coherence in motion (flow-state) represents the status quo for all the ONEs set into motion.

the pure spirit within

That is based on the inversion called "spirituality" aka the belief based conflict of reason between body and mind. They use fear of physical death to promote hope towards mental salvation.

Within reality (motion) spirit; soul; animal etc. are all allegory for the act of breathing aka the demanded adherence to self sustenance within motion. Motion sustains momentum; not those within it. Demanded collective adherence to self sustenance (survival instinct) represents the status quo for all life within momentum; they all must uphold life over death before they can make the choice to ignore and thereby corrupt themselves.

Pure also represents the suggested temptation to want outcome; while ignoring the need of sustenance that would increase quality.

through one breath...

...ALL instills within ONE the value of life over death.

the counterpoint of the soul speaks through art, it should not be exception nor should it be a set of proclivities

ALL emits through each ONE. The opposite (counter) to breathing (soul; spirit) represents unused potential aka within ALL (electric) motion instead of within the used potential of ONE (magnetic) momentum.

ALL is ONE in energy so there's no "exclusion" within coexistence, and ONE (potential) represents the readiness (proclivity) of ALL (potentiality) in motion; while ONE only has the choice to adhere to or ignore a self sustaining system.

As for "speaking through art"...adherence to self sustenance increases comprehension; which increases potential of ONEself (blood) within ALL. The traits within the bloodline represent those of a shared identity. What ONE expresses represents what remains of self (blood) within ALL; but is gated by ONEs free will of choice to act upon.

The more ONE comprehends of ALL perceived; the more ALL represents the canvas for ONEs inspiration; but acting upon it represents the struggle within self to not ignore it for the temptations of the outside.

the tenuous but tactile elements in ones environment

ALL is offered at any moment(um) to each ONE within. There's no rarity within the base material (energy); only lack of comprehension within each of us (temporary magnetic within ongoing electric). You could study any one object for a lifetime and you would never run out of inspiration offered by it. We represent the limitation within an unlimited offer and our choice of ignorance is what curtails our potential; which would be annoying enough without a parasite exploiting it; but alas we ignore that as well.
