Brain cells have been lost. Great.
I'm sorry. Was that to me?
No, I quote when directing it to someone else. Otherwise it's to the OP.
Yorda leak showed interest in ico
Franzea/Shadow of the Collasus leak showed interest in wander
so ico and wander, or just ico (or POSSIBLY just wander, but doubt it)
Ico is more likely in this game because of the leak that showed the girl he 'babysits'
Wander is very possible, but less likely because it has only been shown that he has a mashup... patapons have a mashup... but if he had an actual stage, that would make his chances higher.
But its still possible both/whichever one you prefer gets in.
If i had to guess we'll only get ico, but we'll get a SotC mashup.
wander has higher dlc/sequel possibilities though.
Artsy is such a negative word, when describing something with depth. Shadow of the Colossus is very intellectually stimulating, and a lot of emotions can be incorporated in play. But Wander as a character is very violent. Art or not, he's a warrior and a killer. Fighting and murdering others is what he does, no matter how valid he believes his reasons are. Basically, both he and Ico are fighters. I wouldn't worry about either of their chances. Violence is part of who they are as characters. And the entire point of this game is violence.
Well I certainly didn't mean it negatively. I guess that's up to the interpretation of the reader.
And I'm not claiming that the themes, motives, or action of characters in the games are not dark or violent; I'm claiming that the game (as a whole) is very unique. Intellectually stimulating was a very good way of putting it.
I'm just not SURE that Team Ico would want to give Superbot the freedom to use their content, based on their reputation for making really amazing, unique games.
Would they want one of their "posterboys" included in a big fun free for all brawler? I'm not sure.
That's all I'm saying.
And as an aside, when I say ICO I mean team ICO. I'm talking about Wander as a potential character.
