Stiq Figures, September 24 - 30: Colossal edition


Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. Every week, we take a look at, uh, something – meanwhile, the previous week's Japanese hardware sales figures are posted after the jump, and a discussion of said figures takes place in our comments. It may not be conventional, but it's a time-honored Joystiq tradition.

For a game that's just turning seven years old, Team ICO's Shadow of the Colossus has quite the legacy in gaming. A game with the level of commonly accepted importance in the medium such as Shadow of the Colossus tends to receive its share of tributes.

The above tribute artwork is one of 18 from a collection by artist James Gilleard, and can be seen at OhNo!Doom's "Belligerent & Numerous" art gallery in Chicago. The gallery is open for public viewing until November 3.

For those that can't make the trip to Illinois in the next month, the rest of the images can be seen on Gilleard's blog and on Venus Patrol.
