    Hey all. I know some of you guys might have a setup that allows you to take direct screen shots of your PS2 games. If you do, I was wondering if you'd be interested in helping me with a little project.

    My wife really fell in love with the image of the fifth Colossus, the giant Albatross-looking bird colossus. Now, we've been on-and-off google searching for months, trying to find shots of this guy, and most of them are either very tiny, poorly photographed (i.e., somebody took a picture of their monitor) or otherwise useless. We also tried taking some pictures of the monitor ourselves, but I know that this ain't the way to go; the pictures we got are just as bad as the ones we've google-searched. :( 

    I was hoping that one of you guys would be OK with taking a few direct screenshots of the fifth colossus for me - some in flight, some diving in to attack, etc. - so I can frame them nice and big and give them to the wife for Christmas.

    I can't help you, on account of not having a PS2, the game, or the ability to take screenshots.

    But I'm filing a grievance with Man Union Local 908 on account of your use of the term "Wifeypoo."

    EDIT: I feel incredibly awkward for :lol  at your user title.

    Wish I could help. What a great game though. My daughter got so upset right before I got to the last colossus because of that one "incident" at the bridge. :(

    or try going to gamespot.com, looking up their review of the game, and then going through their screenshots. I'd do it for ya but I'm not sure which boss you're actually talking about. awesome game, though.


    *edit* oooh, that statue set is nifty!

    Gamespot! Nice idea. I'll give that a shot...I forgot about how many nice & pretty screenshots they include with their reviews.

    The boss in question is number 5. He's the giant flying bird colossus whose only attack is to swoop down at you. You have to jump up on his left or right wing and ride on him, stabbing at weak spots in the wings & the head. Some folks online call him "The Eagle" or "The Flyer" or "The Raven." I don't know if there's a canonical name for him.

    I love battle that phoenix (dunno why gamespot called it a bat). I can just ride on its back for an hour before killing it.

    Did I say how awesome its introduction is ?

    The fifth Colossus is easily my favourite, the sensation of speed whilst on it's back was pretty convincing. I quite liked the thirteenth, the other flying one, since it was fairly passive and wasn't really that hostile unlike the others, I always feel bad for killing it.

    Yeah the 13th, I was expecting its attacks but it just floating around, looks stoned (no pun intended). I also feel bad for killing the horse colossus, as it walk away after I shoot an arrow to it.

    14th is the worst of the bunch, worst than the fire guardian (11th colossus), as it leaves you no chance to dodge its charge at the start if you don't react quickly.

    I still can't beat Colossus #9, Basaran. The damn thing takes forever to get onto a geyser. Its beam attack is too hard to dodge. And if I manage to flip it over, I can't get to its head before it gets onto its feet and wind up falling off its back.

    But so far my favorite fight was also Avion. I also like #3, Gaius because of the fact you have to run up his sword to be able to climb up him.

    I would not mind if this thread stays around for a few more days as a s.o.c. appreciation thread ;)
