I started Bastion the day it came out (a little over a month before Deus Ex: Human Revolution came out) and while DXHR took me almost 50 hours to beat, Bastion only took 11 hours…and yet I only just now beat Bastion, roughly 12 hours after beating DXHR. Which means I’d love to discuss it if you’ve beaten it too so feel free to ask me anything.
Spend five minutes with the game and you’ll be convinced the game was made with love. The beautifully illustrated world is reconstructed before you as the soothing narrator tells the story of The Kid, of the Bastion, and of the Calamity that ripped the world apart. It is a very charming game.
For what it costs to buy a pack of 4-5 shitty maps for your latest Call of Doodie shitgame, you can buy a wonderful game that makes you think, that makes you fall in love with video games all over again, and that shows you what a small of team of 6 indie developers and 1 voice actor can do: they can make something new and unique in an industry overpopulated with annual sequels and dull copycats.
It’s so great. The narrator gives me a ‘boner’. I will work on trying to finish it. So then we can talk about DXHR and this.Source: stochastic-gamer
