Are Best Buy's pre-orders like Amazon's where they don't charge you until it ships?

I haven't played this game in any form, so I'm looking forward to it. Amazon doesn't have the special edition available, and Best Buy only seems to have it for in-store pick-up. No shipping. The Best Buy I usually go to doesn't have it available either. I'm hesitant to say the special edition will be so limited, but it is odd.

If I have someone with GCU order it for me via my local store, will I be able to pick it up, or does the person that placed the order have to pick it up?

You can pick it up. All they need is the name on your ID, and email address.

I have a gift card to Gamestop, and there's an additional preorder bonus of an in-game sword and PSN theme, so I was going to cancel my Best Buy preorder and preorder at the Gamestop I frequent. I went in, the employee tried to do the preorder, but the system wouldn't let him. So he ordered it from their site to ship to my house, but it was forcing express/same-day shipping which is obviously more expensive. He called another Gamestop up the street, and that one has the office of the regional manager, who he spoke to and found out that the stores had already reached their allotments of the special edition. The system was forcing the expensive shipping because the game would be coming directly from Sony.

So maybe the special edition really is just that for once.

It's a bummer that it runs at 60fps. The stuttery 15-20fps on PS2 was just so cinematic.

While watching their video, I kept thinking "HOLY CRAP did it really run THAT poorly on PS2???"

That was all that we had at the time. It was totally playable back then. Keep in mind, that was good for what was out at the time. Looking back on it now . . . ugh.

It was the atmosphere that won me over at the time. Riding up on some mythic beast outweighed how it actually looked.

Maybe this game was just so far ahead of it's time, it couldn't really be realized ... until now.

But, yah, that video totally got me even more amped up than I already was.

Choose your fate:
1. People did have a problem with it
2. "So cinematic, low FPS is the bomb"
3. The game was good and PS2 exclusive so it's not like you weren't going to play it anyway.
4. PS2 people had low standards, everyone knows it was all about the true 480p power of the Xbox

Same...I just loved the atmosphere and figuring out how to tackle those beasts...Did any of you have a favorite Colossus? For me, it was the flying one in the desert (13th, I believe).

Yeah. I still think the special edition of this may be limited. The employee working with me for my in-store pick up called another employee to bring up more special editions (there was only one up front aside from mine), but unless they set them aside in the back, you couldn't just walk in a buy one. There weren't any on the shelves.

Has anyone received the pre-order "Life Sword" yet?

I've never pre-bought from BB before - but I can't seem to locate where the LS is.


The package is really lovely. I love the outer box that holds the steelbook.

This is how you do a SE.

Not I. Typically Best Buy sends out codes ahead of time. I didn't realize we got that one too.

I also got my code about a half hour ago.

The dimensions of the outer box of the special edition are starting to annoy me. The shelves I have my PS4 games on are non-adjustable, and the outer box is about 2mm too tall to fit. Plus, why didn't they make the manual and DLC code a little smaller to fit inside the steelbook? It's not like they couldn't have. Also, did everyone else get two copies of the map?

Man, once you play 60fps there's no going back. 30fps feels like the old PS2 20fps sluggishness. But this time it's just the scale of the collosi and their slow movements making it feel that way I think.

Apparently Bluepoint is remastering another "classic". Could be Ico though personally I hope it's Demon's Souls.

I'm guessing it's another proper Sony property, and there may be too many companies involved for 'Demon's Soul.' Honestly, I hope it's another PS2 game. I don't have any in mind, but the jump to 4k would be more impressive. But yeah, it's probably 'Ico.'

I don't recall ICO having too much of a hardware limitation. SotC bogged down constantly and was too ambitious but ICO was more contained. Not sure a graphic update would really add much to it, except for us being able to kick the PS2/PS3 out the door....

I've beaten 11 of the SotC Colossi on PS4 in 60fps mode and man, the PS2 roots are certainly showing up the more you play. It's a gorgeous game, plays smoothly, gives you constant "wows", and is easily the best "remaster" I've played.

But for them to re-haul the entire graphics engine and allow new controls, you can tell where they didn't redo PS2 code. They didn't fix the camera...it clips through objects (albeit very smoothly, but doesn't move around things like cavern walls very well) or fix some gameplay gotchas (one boss needs to be pushed off a cliff, but there are 2-3 available "cliffs"...hit the wrong one and you both fall and get stuck. I had to restart my game because me and the boss were both stuck in a place where I couldn't harm them in the 1 way I could, and they couldn't get me because I was stuck on a rock).

I certainly recommend the game and think it's fantastic, but it's no 10/10. frown

For anyone still looking for a Special Edition:

My roommate was able to find one at a Gamestop about 60 miles away from us. The site inventory is out of whack so not all the stores that are supposed to have it in stock do (a couple had it on hold and others didn't have it at all), but keep calling around. He was able to stop by a local Gamestop, have them call the store that has the game in stock, and have them ship it to the local store. Don't know if this is YMMV or if this is something most GameStops allow you to do, but it's worth a try.

Just different perspectives. Most of what I got I felt was in their previous games. Especially camera issues.

As far as Trico doing his own thing at times, I just felt added some charm. It gave him his own personality.

I had similar issues but now that I've got a Pro I'm going to give it a second chance. I really, really wanted to like the game but was frustrated by so much of it that it wasn't fun to play.

That's good to know. I haven't gotten around to playing it yet, but when I do, it will be in 3D on the PS3. While I don't have a PS4 yet (if ever), at least now I know which one I'd prefer to experience.

I bought a 60" Panasonic Viera plasma TV almost five years ago. I didn't care about it having 3D at the time, but I've used it a number of times and have been happy with it. The downside was that I had to separately purchase active shutter 3D galsses for it, so I only bought one pair for myself. There was a great 3D movie streaming service that you could rent from, but it's gone under. I actually watched a 3D John Wayne western over the service (Hondo). I've also rented a few movies on Vudu whenever I've come across a free code.

As far as gaming is concerned, I think I've only used it on Tetris and Uncharted 3. I've been meaning to get around to Ico and SoC, but you know how it goes. It's on the mighty stack known as my backlog.

Have you played any games on 3D on your PS3?

What a gosh darn gorgeous looking game. Jesus. So lovely.

I think I'm down to 8 Colossi left. Just beat that little tiny fudgeer. He was really hard. I had forgotten what I needed to do for him. The rest of them have been really quick battles: mostly 3 minutes or less.

But it looks so beautiful. Totally sucked in again. God do I love this game.

Years ago I tried to play pretty much anything available in 3D on the PS3. The game that I remember the most for some reason is a Tron (Legacy?) game that was a platformer like Prince of Persia. The style/colors worked really well and it was a simple and enjoyable game.

When the PS4 wasn't continuing many releases with 3D I was disappointed as I quite enjoy the experience.

Same here. I actually went in the wrong direction and got stuck in a crevace that he then dropped into and killed me as I was stuck. That was my first death in the game, and it was a cheap one...but it was the only flaw in the game that I saw. I was thinking I'd get the "don't die" trophy but that blew it. frown But then just before the last colossi in the part

where you need to jump the chasm with the horse...I must have died 5-6 times. Kept jumping off at weird angles for some reason. So if you're not there yet and haven't died...be careful there. That was harder for me than the actual end boss.

I forgot everything about him with the exception of where he was located. I forgot about the fire (which was really tiny to see when the log fell on the ground), I forgot about pushing him off, and then we got into this cycle of me running around to the back of the area again and he followed me and kept ramming into me just as I was standing up. The timing for that is terrible and I figured I'd fall into an insta-kill pattern, but somehow I got away.

So far he's the toughest fudgeer and he's the smallest one. :)

I hope they redo Ico. If I had Ico, SotC and Last Guardian on one console I'd pretty much be set.

*crosses fingers*

Haha took me almost a month to finish a 6 hour game... Sucks being an adult!

I just realized that I never finished this back in the PS2 days after getting to the final boss and finishing it.

What a fantastic ending!

I got to six and then got sucked back into the Division.

Hoping to pick it back up in the coming weeks.
