'The Last Guardian' (PS4 – December 6)
It wasn't long ago that merest glimpse of The Last Guardian was a rare treat. A few seconds in a trade show sizzle reel was enough to kindle the hopes of forlorn fans eager to see the third installment in the loosely-tied series that started with the beloved Ico in 2001. What followed were countless delays and long media blackouts, due mainly, as we'd eventually learn, to upheaval at its studio. Fast forward to last E3, and there it is, a real, fully-playable game – willfully atmospheric, with that light touch unique to director Fumito Ueda.
