Never have so many questions been asked of so many people about a single game’s status. So let’s add another piece of wood to the fire.
Notably absent from E3 this year is The Last Guardian, an upcoming (or is it?) game from the creators of the modern classic PS2 titles ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. It seems every interview with a Sony executive includes a question about the game. Is it cancelled? On indefinite hiatus? Is it going to be for the PS3 or the PS4? There have been conflicting messages.
So at the end of an interview today with Andrew House, president and group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, I simply asked him if The Last Guardian is still something we can look forward to.
“I think The Last Guardian is something we can look forward to,” House said with a smile. Which doesn’t really clear a whole lot up, other than the game isn’t yet dead. Or maybe he just meant we can look forward to it the same way we look forward to winning the lottery. Doesn’t mean either will ever happen.
No, I’m gonna go with the “will come out some day” interpretation of that remark. Trico lives!
I’m just going to jettison all pretense of cynical aloofness here and say it: It’s been a long, long time since I’ve wanted to play a game as badly as I want to play Watch Dogs.

The always-angry Kratos returns today in God of War: Ascension. Is the game worth your time and your dollars?
He’s cleaved hundreds of creatures in half with his whirling chain-blades, plundered thousands glowing orbs from heavily guarded chests, bedded a dozen perky-breasted nymphs – often more than one at a time – and used his inhuman strength to literally move mountains.
Kratos, the big, bald badass we’ve come to know and love over eight years of God of War games, has every reason to be tired. And in God of War: Ascension, his weariness is finally beginning to show.
