Team Ico's Fumito Ueda reveals several new tidbits about the gameplay and graphics of The Last Guardian in this week's Famitsu issue.
cant wait to see what the hate will be about! lol probably about the creature, but i think it looks awesome, you can tell already that you will care about it on some level too.. i like the fact the devs were suprised by the interest and are feeling pressure! thats gotta be better than being c**ky and thinkin your game is the best thing since sliced bread!.. anyone know a dev like that? hmmmm
Anybody hating on this needs their head examined! For me this is my most anticipated game this year. Games like this and LBP,Uncharted 2 make me feel warm and fuzzy.This masterpiece in the making cannot get here soon enough. With the extra power this talented team have now,I can only dream of just how high they set the bar....Not just eye candy,but in new innovative gameplay mechanics and A.I. I hope to see a cross of ICO with boss battles sprinkled in like SOTC gave us...A nice mix of what both games brought to the table....But at the sametime new creative gameplay ideas to go along with it. I can already taste the mood and ambiance....And controlling the "griffin" (I believe is what it is called) both in flight and air,along with using the creature in getting to hard to reach areas will be amazing...Puzzle solving at it's finest... I am always in waiting for the next ODDWORLD inhabitants game,any sign of Beyond good and evil 2,anything new from media molecule,and always hoping for news on Kingdom hearts 3,but this game may top them all.... Bring this on now please!
saying the creature is some silly bird dog cat thing, its not a very good diss as thats kinda what it is lmao.. i guess they can always s**g off the sales! lmao.. it makes me laugh that sales equal quality this gen.
At least we still... know nothing new about this game. Although looks like a 2011 GOTY release ;).
This just looks more and more exciting with every new bit of info that appears, really can't wait for TLG! Will be dissapointed if it doesn't land this year but at the same time the wait will be bearable because i know it will be worth it. Played a bit of SOTC again the other week, that game still oozes more atmosphere and emotion than most games today. A true classic. Have my fingers firmly crossed for an ICO / SOTC re-release along the lines of the GOW collection, would snap that up on day one! @1.1 - You're not the only one waiting for a new Oddworld release, i would LOVE to see a current gen Oddworld Inhabitants game! The Abe series was awesome and deserves a revival, HD Oddworld would be amazing!
I'm 1000% Sure this Game will surpass SoTC with an Amazing Story and Gameplay Team ICO FTW!!!
I'm completely turning myself off from this game. I will buy it on the first day but i dont wanna see another screen or trailer or anything that will spoil anything for myself. I all ready saw those soulless soldier guys guarding the temple or whatever and i shouldnt have.
with only the promise of new information later this year, I doubt we'll be lucky enough to get our hands on this in 2010.
Unfortunately, I agree with you. Maybe I will just replay Shadow of the Colossus this year.
Ueda can take all the time he wants. ICO and SOTC gave me multiple playthroughs and both games stayed with me long after my last completion.
or better yet, maybe we'll get a little remake love similar to the God of War collection. That would definitely be more than enough to tide me over.
For sure, I'd pick an HD remake up on Day1.
Yep, most likely not to expect a release for this year. It would be good if they made a HD version of ICO and SOTC for the PS3, because I have never played them.
@xxBiG_BoSSxx That's will be just Amazing Remastered ICO+SoTC HD FTW!
Can't wait! This is bound to be one of the best games this gen.
Fumito Ueda and his team are great designers, I'm sure this game will deliver an epic experience like they did with ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. BTW I remember a movie where a guy played Shadow of the Colossus.
yeah, it was Adam sandler in a movie called ''reign over me''. Quite good movie actually....
I smell another masterpiece.
Damn, combine all of the Xbox 360's games' graphics for 2009, and it still doesn't touch JUST THE FEATHERS of the catdog bird.
its a griffin and i wholly agree lol
nice one+ bubbles
I wonder if we'll control both the kid and the monster.
you control kid with analogue L3, camera R3 and animal SIXAXIS, which will be quite revolutionary.
so there's only a little chance that this game gonna come out this year.... i thought it was confirmed for 2010 :(
I do know you get to control that creature in flight and underwater:) Looks amazing.
I have yet to play an Ico game and I doubt I will get a chance to play Ico or SotC because Sony took BC out of PS3. I will have to wait for this masterpiece.
"I have yet to play an Ico game" "I will have to wait for this masterpiece." Whaaaa?
they are going to do ps2 games on psn (rumor) when they discontinue the ps2, so we should be able to play sotc at some point in time. even if that does not happen i am sure all the talks of recompiling a version that will work on ps3 will come true, just look at the gow collection for evidence of that
@ ElementX You can get a used PS2 for 50 dollars and a used copy of SOTC for under 15 bux. You have no excuse for having not played SOTC. It's understandable to have missed out on ICO since it was in short supply during its PS2 days and now can be fetched for up to 100 dollars. I thankfully have owned ICO since day1 and regard it as one of my most cherished gaming possessions.
@9.1 I've read countless times of the merrits of SotC. Everyone says it's a masterpiece, so I assume Last Guardian won't be any different. @9.3 I don't want to buy a PS2 for one or two games. The cost of a PS3 could purchase God of War III or some other new release. What would I do with the PS2 after I played SotC? It would sit around collecting dust. I'm just hoping they do a re-release like GoW compilation, which I have yet to purchase Actually I could borrow one of my brother-in-law's PS2s. I think he has two
The greatest selling console of all time and you're actually under the belief you'd be purchasing it for only 2 games? You mentioned your inability to play ICO or SOTC and I gave an easy and affordable solution to your problem. I didn't suggest they were the only 2 games the PS2 era offers, the PS2 era offers more AAA games for you to play than this current generation's consoles combined. It's gamers like you that make me shake my head and wonder what games they play.
you don't want to buy a ps2 only for ICO and shadow of collosus .?? well in your must play list , add OKAMI
I played Okami on Wii.
IF he wanted to play ps2 games he'd have already between well ps2 beng cheap new or used , or even a quite decently working (for a growing list of games) ps2 emu . Hell if there were "nothing to play" , he wouldnt care about BC in the first place .
So, none of your friends have a PS2 either? I have a PS2 and PS3. Heck, I have a PS1. Why does everyone sell their systems? You can borrow mine. I have both games. Try out Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2, DMC 1 & 3, Bully, all the Bond games, Fatal Frame 1-3, In The Groove, Indigo Prophecy, Okami, all the Silent Hills, Resident Evil 4, SSX Tricky & 3, and Final Fantasy X.
I said I could borrow my brother-in-law's PS2. I'll have to pick up SotC cheap somewhere.
it will cost 120 bucks in total, but trust me its worth it those two games make many next gen games look dated (not graphically but over all design and gameplay) Ico and SoTC imo easily the best PS2 games ever
After the masterpieces that were ICO and SOTC, they can take all the time they need. ICO remains to this day a contender for my all-time favourite game. 2010, 2011, or 2012--I'll be patiently waiting.
It was looking like a 2011 title anyways. Don't worry we have plenty for 2010. =]
Both Ico and Shadow of the Colossus left me speechless. So, I am beyond excited for this game.
They just HAD to kill this game by using the cartoon kid. That just kills the atmosphere. Whats the point of great graphics, if the art style is horrible?
