This is why I love my PS3

I may not be playing much games these days (heck, haven't even touched my copy of the new Prince of Persia yet), but when THIS one comes out, you won't be able to unglue me from it.

From the team that brought us Ico and Shadow Of The Collossus (two of the most awesome game ever...for me anyway), here are the first images of project Trico (Last Guardian).

Not much happens in the first minute, but after that, it takes off.
Beautiful visuals and music (oops! Apparently, the music is a temp track from "Miller's Crossing"- nice anyway, works very well), as always.
The shot at 2:32 always gets me.
Turns out this video version (still very charming) was an early leak of an unfinished version of the trailer. For a version that's more rendered and with more footage, go here:

Oh! Also want to pimp Flight Volume 6, coming out in July.
I'm still not in it (blame Zhao for hijacking my brains). The book is once again filled with awesome art and stories.

LJ-cut puhlease? :)
Jun. 2nd, 2009 09:41 pm (UTC)
Sorry, fixed!
I thought I had put a cut in there. Preview doesn't show if there's a cut or not.

That was my first reaction.
Gonna have to wait though.

Project Trico is the only thing that can get me to buy a PS3. :P

And I can't wait for Flight 6! The proofs alone looked awesome.
Jun. 2nd, 2009 09:57 pm (UTC)
Gonna be able to get Flight 6 before the game.
(nuh, I want everything naow!!)
Jun. 2nd, 2009 09:52 pm (UTC)
This game looks so amazing (ahh the tearing up of my eyes ;_; ), it makes me consider the possibility of buying a PS3 or stealing one of my friend's console just for the game XD

Thanks for the music source too, I def. plan on looking into that :)

If your friend is nice, he-she will let you borrow the PS3.
Maybe a bit of threatening will be needed first ;)

You wrote Flight 3 in your entry. I think Trico is invading your brain too much, lol.

Man, though, can Japan Studios seriously do know wrong? They did Locoroco for the PSP too and it's absolutely one of the best handheld games ever. And Heavenly Sword was pretty sweet too.

Man, I hate to be "That Guy" on the inter-net, but fun fact: Heavenly Sword was developed in England!

Doing anything special? Besides torturing Zhao, that is.
Jun. 2nd, 2009 11:45 pm (UTC)
You mean, there's something else beside torturing Zhao?

Thank you very much!!!
Nope, nothing special planned. I'm boring that way. Had no good ideas what to do, so meh. Path of least trouble.
People at work have been very nice though! Had a cake, cookies, a card. That's plenty :)
I think I'll skip planning birthday stuff until I get to round numbers, like 4-0.
That's coming soon enough. Eeeeeeeeeep.

Ha! The news on this game was dropped just hours ago!

Apparently Sony showed a newer, more polished, more awesome version of that same trailer, and that should be on the inter-nets soon. I am pumped, too, considering Ico and Shadow of the Colossus and how mind-bendingly great they are.
Jun. 2nd, 2009 11:39 pm (UTC)
An even more awesome version?
My brain will melt.

My colleagues and I saw the this footage via kotaku.com and I don't know why, I teared up when I watched it. It the way they animate the creature, the little gestures like ear twitches (like a cat!) and its affectionate interaction with the boy that just gets me (and the gentle beautiful music doesn't help either - I have an idea I'd be bawling if I play this game..haha!)

(is it your birthday today! If so, have a great one! Happy birthday!)
Jun. 2nd, 2009 11:46 pm (UTC)
Same here! They really managed to capture something reallly sweet with that creature. I could hug their animators for putting those extra little touches.
Thanks for the god wishes! I am indeed older today.
I mean...I get older everyday but it's that one day of the year where it's official, ha ha.

Watched the newer trailer and...oh. my. God. It's Aang!

First the clothing style just reminded me of Aang

And the little boy has tattoos on his arms!

And he has a giant animal - that should be able to fly (poor thing)

And I'm assuming that "Last Guardian" means the boy...so

O_O I don't play games and I have no idea what a PS3 is but...I want! XP

Thanks for sharing!

(the music was beautiful too!!!)
Jun. 3rd, 2009 12:30 am (UTC)
The Last Guardian may be that big non flying creature.
You know what, I only noticed the tattoo after the 3rd viewing of the trailer :)
The feel I get of it is you befriend it and need to help it escape.
I may be totally wrong too, ha ha!
That company did two other great games that are different from the image you may have in your head of classic video games (Ico and Shadow of the Collossus). All highly recommended.

Gee...I liked the "knitting project" title... :)
I love it when they play with contrast in sizes in games... !

And Joyeux anniversaire! :D tout plein de bonheur et de chocolat 70% cacao!

Em :)
Jun. 3rd, 2009 12:38 am (UTC)
Ha ha, "Trico"! I hadn't read it that way.
OOOOh! Did you see the trailer for The Beatles Rockband game, animated by the same studio who does the Gorillaz clips? AWESOME!!!
I don't have a link for it unfortunately, they took it off YouTube. Booooh!
Comment t'as fait pour savoir pour le chocolat 71%? T'es psychic toi!

Eee! I know, that game looks so lush!
And Flight 6! I really like the Flight volumes, they always have such beautiful and quirky stories.
Jun. 3rd, 2009 12:39 am (UTC)
It's going to be a long wait.
New Flight volume is sure to please- they seem to be getting stronger every volume I swear!
Jun. 3rd, 2009 01:50 am (UTC)
Happy birthday!
Jun. 3rd, 2009 01:56 am (UTC)
Thank youuuuuuuu!
Jun. 3rd, 2009 02:09 am (UTC)
Johane, comment pourrais-je oublié? Tu étais ma fournisseuse de chocolat quand on travaillait ensemble! ;P

Hopefully this link still works:

*sigh*.... :D
Jun. 3rd, 2009 09:23 pm (UTC)
Je vais devoir l'envoyer a mon oncle qui est super fan des Beatles.
Je me demande si il ne va pas s'acheter cette version de Rock Band just pour ca, ha ha!
Jun. 3rd, 2009 07:00 am (UTC)
Awesome trailer is awesome! 8D

And a new Flight? Yay! <3<3<3
Jun. 3rd, 2009 09:24 pm (UTC)
New Flight out in July (July...21st, I think).
The moment there are good previews of the stories out there, I will pimp them!
