Click to read.Why are we always such suckers for this viral marketing stuff? Sony (or somebody working for Sony) has created an utterly believable Typepad blog called Giantology, which features images and videos shot by \"scientists\" and \"enthusiasts\" all over the world. What is in said images and videos? Just some fossilized and otherwise dessicated remains of things that look an awful lot like the Colossi from Sony\'s recent release, Shadow of the Colossus.

The site is extremely well-done, looking very much like any other personal blog with an enthusiast bent. But the inordinate proportion of unique links and the slightly-too-amateur quality of the videos give it away as more than it appears. We have to give much respect to the designers responsible for such clever marketing. If only we didn\'t already want to play Shadow of the Colossus a whole bunch.
