These two great stories of four young people: ICO, Yorda, Wander, Mono and the eerie yet beautiful land(s) they live in have been rewarded with a sumptuous HD re-release on PlayStation 3. What better time for a Cane and Rinse retrospective? Leon, Tony and Jay are joined by devout Team ICO fan Joshua Garrity to discuss both ICO and Shadow of the Colossus; their gameplay, aesthetics and narrative as well as speculating on how the two relate to one another.
“But heed this: the price you pay may be heavy indeed.”
Music used in this issue:
Track 1: Castle in the Mist by Michiru Oshima and Pentagon
Track 2: Prologue: To the Ancient Land by Ko Otani
