Happy late New Year listeners! Welcome to a new season of the Armchair Gamer Podcast. The first episode of season three is mainly a discussion of Team Ico’s Ico and Shadow of The Colossus. I’m joined in this discussion by Cody Bauman. We talk about both games and how they relate to each other. Also, I briefly eulogize THQ. Warning: We will rather nonchalantly spoil both games!

At the top of the show I played a track from Fox’s Peter Pan and the Pirates.
The second track in the introduction is “The Makers Theme” from Darksiders 2 (the soundtrack is composed by Jesper Kyd) the soundtrack is available on Amazon here:http://tinyurl.com/aoowu3g
The Theme Song (as always) is The Advantages cover of “The Moon” from Ducktales.
Two tracks from the ICO- Melody in the Mist soundtrack are used (“You Were There” and “Heal”) this soundtrack comes from Michiru Oshina. It is available on Amazon:http://www.amazon.com/Ico-Melody-Mist-Michiru-Oshima/dp/B00005V4GL/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1360364049&sr=1-1&keywords=ico+soundtrack
Two tracks from the Shadow of The Colossus Official Soundtrack are used (“Prologue-To The Ancient Land” and “The Opened Way- Battle with the Colossus”) The composer is Kow Otani.
If you own a PS3 and have not played ICO or Shadow of The Colossus you should drop a little cash for the HD collection (available on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/ICO-Shadow-Colossus-Collection-Playstation-3/dp/B002I0J5FG/ref=sr_1_1?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1360364552&sr=1-1&keywords=ico+and+the+shadow+of+the+colossus+ps3)
Finally, the interview with Fumito Ueda I mentioned in the show is on Youtube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LPLF0sMRjg
