This thread is a lie :\ (was: next Team ICO-Game!?)

Sounds very interesting, I'll take whatever they throw at me. The overworld in SOTC was so atmoshperic and desolate, and now the game is focused even more on that where they make an entire game out of that feeling coupled with flying around (and with teh next-gen graphics), it'll be pretty cool. More of a relaxed, (again) experience type game.
So glad Sony is giving this guy the money and people so he can do what he does.

holy shit that sounds great. i hope we'd be digging stuff out of the ground. and we'd dig up like whole cities or something like that

and dig up like bones of old animals, broken artifacts or something of the like and put them together...

that'd certainly fill the "i wanna be an archaelogist" feeling i've always had in the back of my mind :p

I have confidence that with the games pedigree it will be gorgeous, but I have a hard time getting excited about open-desert exploration. Maybe there will be caves to explore inside the canyons that will add some variation to the scenery.
this is what Im am hoping...or at least different environments in each canyon. I hope it is at least more fleshed out than SOTC.

The concepts behind ICO and SoTC don't really make you think they're going to be amazing either. I mean ICO is essentially a giant escort mission, which is a part of gaming that most people hate, and yet it works really well.

Fuck yes, this better turn out to be true.
It sounds amazing.

Fantastic morning this is, new Radiohead album and possible information on the new Team ICO game. I also dig the name "The last canyon".

Where did this write-up originate from? If it's not from the website, and it's way too small for an actual article - what's it supposed to be?

Not really, GI has small articles for games sometimes and if they aren't allowed to show any media on the game they aren't going to have it take up several pages of just writing.

They say they have enough material for a whole feature in the first paragraph. So if it's a cover page feature, then that write-up seems really slim.

I will buy a PS3 for this alone.

Every other game is just a bonus.

Sounds fantastic.


The fact that canyons are hidden from up above makes it seem like a dessert version of Rivendell :p

I want to get excited but I've been burned too many times by shit like this. If Game Informer wrote what was in that first post they need to fire whatever editor wrote that. It's awful.

I will wait for official confirmation just to avoid mega disappointment.

EDIT:

needs more details, right now i can`t figure out how i feel.

I have this weird image of this being a next get "Thrust"

get into the cavern, find clans man, add them to your glider, get the hell out of there (but then dark shadow demons/bosses appear)

10p says the "caverns" are living creatures ! ;)
