Bastion
« on: August 12, 2011, 11:06:08 AM »
Has anybody played this game yet?  It was released on 360 before, and is just about to come out on PC.  It looks really good and the development team was very small - only 7 people working out of a basement in San Jose.  It's even won several awards and I've seen commercials for it on tv.

I've heard that the way it tells the story in combination with gameplay is fluid and unobtrusive. It still needs a little more to grab me, though. Apparently it's something like Minecraft as well? I mean not exactly, but you can like create and destroy or something? It hasn't grabbed me yet. I'll have to try a demo.

It's definitely a great piece of work for a team of only seven people. Also, Greg Kasavin is a part of the team, and he used to be an editor-in-chief on Gamespot.

The game is an action RPG, but it's known for its narration. You'll have a narrator stating everything that you are doing as you are doing it. So there is no interruption from gameplay. I played a little bit of the game over at a friend's house, and I really liked it. I'll probably get it for PC when it comes out.

I've been quite intrigued by this game for a bit now; I've been wanting to try it out. When it's out on the PC I'll have to give it a shot.

I believe this is tomorrow.  I've had it pre-ordered for a while so I'll just download it from Steam once it's ready.

Yep, tomorrow at 10 AM Pacific Time (random...).

I may actually have to get this; it's looking quite interesting.

I'll get it eventually. I've played enough of it at a friend's house that I'm not feeling impulsive over it. It's a fun game, but I have a feeling that it'll get a discount during the Steam Christmas sale.  :-\
