If waiting seven years for the third game from Ico and Shadow of the Colossus creator Fumito Ueda has taught us anything, it's patience, which is exactly what's needed to see our young hero and his massive catbird companion through to the end of The Last Guardian.


Video: ICO, a game that is as barren as they come, offers a small piece of solace when you reach a save point and a piece of music called Heal kicks in. Realising that there wasn't a looping version of the very chill music available, reader Stephen Mlinarcik spliced one together. I had it on in the background all morning while working and it's been just lovely.


PS2 classic Ico is a stark, minimal affair. You hold a girl's hand, you run around a bit. But it wasn't always that way! Some recent file examination and translation work has uncovered that there was supposed to be a lot more story and exposition in the game.


Inspired mostly by Medieval architecture and the Middle Ages, fortified stone castles in video games are always among the most exciting locations. These bastions are the keepers of many secrets, hidden cellars and lost knowledge all awaiting the player to find them.


HD remakes -- yay or nay? Depends on the game I say. I've made no secret of the fact that playing the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection has been one of my favourite gaming experiences of 2012 so far. Michael Hart has been playing through my second favourite HD collection, the ICO and Shadow of the Colossus HD Collection.
