E3: I saw Shadow of the Colossus in HD and it was good

It’s a real thing. It’s playable. I saw Shadow of the Colossus HD tonight and I just thought you might want to know that it exists, and is real. We learned this week that it finally has a solid release, set for September, but it was nice to see it with my own eyes. It’s no The Last Guardian, but it’s a good stand-in for now. 

God, it’s pretty. The picture does it no justice. The textures are of a higher resolution, making all that limb climbing and hair and feather hanging even more epic.

I’ve played the game a million times, and you likely have too, so there’s no need to write up a hands-on preview. Just know that Sony was happy to show if off tonight, and that’s its playable and quite nice.
