Wondering where to go?
Pages showcase Ueda’s games as they would be in an official website, just enough to show you what they are, but not enough to divulge spoilers.
Posts examine plot, visual, and narrative design with little regard for spoilage. By the nature of the beast, these have more of the meat.
Here is a list form of every page: Pages Containing Content.
About the blog’s title
“Epilogue ~ Those Who Remain ~” is a name taken from Kō Ōtani’s music for Shadow of the Colossus. Standing as the penultimate piece of the soundtrack’s narrative, it covers both the climax and aftermath, doing so through a thoughtful reprise of the opening theme.
Unless credited otherwise, all PlayStation4 screenshots from “Shadow of the Colossus” and “The Last Guardian” (including header images) are solely my work. PlayStation3 and PlayStation2 images sourced from user uploads in the TeamICO FANDOM Wiki. Japanese logos are sourced from Playstation-Japan’s official websites for ICO, Shadow of the Colossus, and The Last Guardian.
