ico.jpgA week ago I discovered that Ico had been released here in early April without us noticing. I just had to get it. I love the cover art of the European version (to the left). It is much better than that of the American version. There’s only one thing that bugs me and that’s the camera. It is very hard to get an impression of the room you’re in. Even rotating the camera doesn’t help much sometimes. Maybe a first person perspective would have been better when looking around. The ability to zoom out would’ve been nice too. Apart from that it’s a great game as far as I can tell. Graphics are amazing. Sometimes though I can totally relate to this

Today was an important football (err, I mean soccer) game here in Berlin and all the trams and stations were crowded with fans. Had I known that before I went to town to go shopping I would’ve thought twice about going. There was also lots of police around. Many fans are already dead drunk before the game even starts. It’s a lot of fun to sit in a tram together with a large group of mostly male, partly drunk people in soccer uniforms yelling their battle cries. Well it wasn’t too bad. The fans I met all behaved themselves…
