Project Trico - A Team ICO Game

Team ICO, the creators of both ICO and Shadow of the Colossus have released a new trailer for their new project: Trico.

Amazing isn't it? When I see it, I am reminded of both ICO and SoC which is a good thing. It's like the two best games had a newborn child. Apparently this trailer was shown at last year's E3 behind closed doors. A few VG journalists have already confirmed it.

I'll admit that when I first saw the eyes in the darkness I pulled a "wtf" face because I was expecting the typical black smoke monsters that are present in both games.

I don't understand how anyone can dislike Team ICO's games; they're like the "Studio Ghibli" of the video games industry. People are entitled to their opinion but I can't understand how they can say that after playing the unique and epic game. They should read the "Making of SoC" and see how much work was put into it because it was a lot. Games take us to places and let us do things we wouldn't be able to do in real life which is why I love SoC because it's so creative, has a brilliant score and is all together a great game.

So I hope those who disliked SoC may learn to like Trico!

Mirror's Edge Cosplay

It's not everyday that I see a cosplay album where "effort" has been put into it...

Kotaku posted this album here:


It's worth looking at and what I'd like to know is where they took them. Some of those shots have pillars with yellow paint on them which is almost like the game itself.

Props to the cosplayer though! She looks a lot like Faith.
