CHECKPOINTS:
Week one: Two glass eyes face one another from across a narrow room.
Week two: Catapult me!
Week three: "Exhausted, I fell into a deep slumber..."
Week four: Finish the game.

TIPS & TRICKS
1. If you played ICO or Shadow of the Colossus you know how the controls in Ueda's games are unique. If you're not familiar with this control style, it may take some getting used to. Have patience.

2. Speaking of the controls, the boy sticks to Trico like frigging velcro. Even if you've played SotC, this element is completely different. If you get frustrated trying to get onto or off of Trico, just relax and try jumping clear off of the top of his head. Otherwise, try holding the X button to let go and fall off.

3. Use the game's generous checkpointing system. A tactic I developed when I found myself getting flustered or stuck on what to do next is resetting to the last checkpoint via the pause menu. Many times, this is helpful as it "resets" both the boy and Trico in way that sort of aims them towards the next goal. Nine times out of ten this helped me figure out what I needed to do. Every so often, it wouldn't. In those cases, I turned the game off and returned to it the next day. Without fail, I was able to push through.

4. Have patience. I'm going to be honest, at first this game tried my patience in ways I've never experienced before. I almost fell into the same mental trap I did in July with Shining Force II, putting pressure on myself to make sure the game was in the can and checkpoints set up for the playthrough. However, I understood quickly and adjusted myself to realize something extremely important when playing this game. If you try to rush it, you're gonna have a bad time. The main gameplay element here is cooperating with a gigantic animal who has a mind of its own. I think animal lovers might have a smoother time with this game, as I know that helped me. All others, take your time and get used to Trico's behavior.

I just finished this quite recently. I'm not gonna play again this soon, but it's fresh enough that I can watch some videos to refresh myself and hopefully add some constructive conversation.

I got yelled at for buying this... and about 500$ worth of other game stuff this month, I need to not go crazy on game some times, but I have to blame limited run games on most of the spending Smiley

@douglie007: I hope you saved enough for the SNES classic.

I started my playthough so I can keep up with the discussion when it starts. Then I can go back to Shining Force 2.

I still don't have a copy of this damn game yet, and I want to get started!

My first copy from Gamefly didn't work and had to be returned. I bought another copy off ebay and it is taking forever to arrive.

Oh well, at least my PS4 is hooked up. Right, Rich?
