if you saw tavros before the man with the sombrero then im sorry to say you’re 100% homestuck


what am i doing with my life

…………….

Ico why are you in a wheelchair

How can I be 100% Homestuck I have never read Homestuck.

"Secondhand fandom" is the best description I’ve heard of this phenomenon where your friends talk about a thing so much that you vaguely know what’s going on even though you’ve never actually experienced the thing.
(I still see more “Ico in a wheelchair” than “Tavros”, though. Probably because oh hai Ico is like my mental image of horned humanoids these days. Young ones, anyway; headcanon Wander is my image of adult horned human.)

The director, planner, and producer of ICO discussing its US cover (from the PS3 remake bonuses)

Fumito Udea:
What do you think about the cover of the US version of ICO?
[Awkward silence]
Fumito Udea:
I had some reservations about the package design, but in the end, ICO sold well in the US. So the package design must have been the right choice.
Junichi Hosono:
I've sort of developed an attachment to the design over the years.
Kenji Kaido:
After ten years, it grows on you.
Junichi Hosono:
Even now, people still talk about it. You see it on Top Ten Worst Game Covers, and stuff like that.
Kenji Kaido:
In that sense, that artwork leaves an impression on people.
Junichi Hosono:
ICO and Mega Man are the ones people mention.

Okay so I just beat Ico 

And it’s now become one of my favorite games

But tell me

USA

Why the fuck did you make the shittiest cover art I’ve ever seen?

Europe and Japan boxes look pretty

Why do you have to be a dick America

I trusted you

And you betrayed me

Red white and fuck you too

It’s because the art piece for the international boxart hadn’t been completed yet.

The game hadn’t really been completed yet: everyone but North America got extra stuff like a new game plus, an extended ending in the new game plus, and Yorda was more emotive.

All these things were finally brought to NA with the PS3 remake. :3 …and the cover was so notorious for being bad that it actually got acknowledged by the creators.

Ok team, so here’s two posters I did for two of the coolest video games ever, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. But if you know anything about video games, you already know how awesome and amazing they are.

Like I said, I love the games and I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out, I hope you guys like em as well. They’ll be available for purchase at:

http://marinkomilosevski.bigcartel.com/.

The black and white versions will be $40 and the colored versions will be $45. All of them are 18x30 prints, printed on a super fancy and nice printer. Thanks for stopping by guys!
