Dark Shadows Revisited

Mon, 01/02/2006 — Brooke

(As Video Game Character Polio Awareness Month has been unceremoniously changed to Erotic Video Game Fanfiction Appreciation Month, we at Andore thought it might be prudent to revisit one of the earliest and finest pieces of the genre to ever grace our collective screens while FALL OF THE COLOSSUS: PART THREE is being finalized.

Portuguese Box Art: Ico, PS2

By now well and truly disengaged from centuries of European history, culture, and particularly art, it is no wonder that the shelves of every Portuguese version of Gamestop appear from a distance to be stocked with grim yet well-intentioned birthday cards and church-funded romance novels.
