    Arse, just shot a lizard with a white tail but he is on a ledge on one of the prayer monument things. Anyone know if I can climb it to get it as I can't see a way up!

    Edit: as usual, spend ages trying to do something, post on here asking for help and then find it within 5 seconds. Kin el!

    Just dropped the second Colossus, which is exactly two more than I managed on the older versions 😁

    Just did colossi 4 and 5 there.† 5 is one of my faves yet I still managed to fall off at one point!† Glorious stuff tho, even if it is my 3rd play through.

    Also, the lizards are still annoying as fuck.† Chasing them around the save towers still makes me grit my teeth.

    I kind of know what you mean, but considering it was running on a PS2, and projecting a world even more complex than the ones in the GTA games, and simulating a semi-intelligent horse, and displaying bloom despite the console not being built for that, given it wasn't a complete slideshow with completely wonky polygons was miraculous.

    Oh well, at least you're getting to enjoy the game at last.

    Oh I totally get that what it was doing on PS2 was nothing short of wizardry, but the framerate was just too inconsistent for me (and I don't say that as a framerate/graphics whore, just someone that feels physically unwell with a messy framerate).

    Meanwhile in PS4-land, I've just killed the third one and it was breathtaking.

    I get the feeling I should explore a bit as I haven't found a single thing (fruit, etc) ye guys are on about.

    Nice.

    Took me a few minutes to suss out how to stun him. That was some climb too. Just having a little explore of the world now before ploughing on... killed two lizard things and looted them... What they they do?

    @FuzzyDucky They increase your stamina bar, so you can cling on and climb for longer.

    @FuzzyDucky But only the ones with the blue tails. Not sure if the others do anything...

    Number 4 is down! That was the easiest so far. Now do I switch this off or end up sitting here until the morn playing? 🤔

    @Dazwash Thanks, spotted that, plus fruit gives you a bump to your health too.

    I completed this on PS2 without realising either of those things.

    God, this game. Itís really refreshing to be able to explore without tens of game mechanisms clamouring for your attention.
    While I know thereís barely anything to find in it- especially given the size of the world- it feels like itís full of hidden secrets if I just look hard enough, always need to see whatís around the next corner. Which is usually nothing. But it is a nice nothing.
    Found a clearing, found a climb, found a water filled cave, found a secret passage, found a secret temple, etc...

    Yeah it just kinda leaves you be. I think I've looked at the map once too.

    20 minutes in and 3 down. Might Abandon this save and go straight to hard mode, forgot how much I played this back in the day, it feels like I played it yesterday.

    Christ forgotten how much the last colossus is an absolute cunt - trying to get the trophy for not dying (all previous 15 have barely touched me) but this prick will not stop fucking moving

    Really starting to sour the whole experience :(

    The irony being of course that if there wasn't a trophy, I am sure it would just restart me close by instead of having to reload and start from the nearest prayer thing. Fucking trophy whore.

    @drhcnip I get all the way to the second hand, I know I have to shoot his shoulder so he reaches and I can jump onto him there and climb to his head but his hand won't stop moving at any point so I can't shoot. And then if I try to get to the buckle like I used to, in this version it just zaps and blasts me for miles.

    ah, yes, that can be the most irritating part...i know people complain about the head constantly moving but that's just a case of keeping an eye on the grip bar and using the resting spots...

    it's a bugger, as you say, when you're trying to get the trophy as he's the only one where significant damage is really possible

    Haha yeah and I have properly got myself into that zone now where I am getting worse and worse! Time to take a break and come back later to smash the prick!
