 This week I have been playing "The Last Guardian", aka "How To Train Your Mousebirddragon", a semi-sequel to "Ico". Both games are an eerie surreal puzzle adventure through a massive, beautiful, bizarre landscape of ruins and mechanisms, accompanied by a companion with whom you need to cooperate to progress. "Ico" had Yorda, an ethereal glowing girl whose hand you had to hold a lot. "The Last Guardian" has a creature called a Trico, the mousebirddragon of my preferred title, and ohmygosh seriously look at this cutie:

It's a lovely game and I really recommend it. Especially because it's full of moments of gentle hilarity as you and Trico try to understand each other.

The main character trapped in a cage while Trico looks on puzzled

"Human. Human. Explain?"

(There then followed ten minutes of Trico trying to figure out how to open the cage, while I did the same thing from the other side of the screen, although my puzzle solving involved less nose-bumping...)
