You know, this cynical, bitter black heart of mine often finds it difficult to get excited about new games. I’ve seen the hype cycle go round so many times that it can often be hard to maintain enthusiasm – but Bastion? It’s got my attention. Big time.
Stupid weekend commitments and my wife’s insistence that we go and see the new Harry Potter got the better of me this weekend, so I never got the chance to get stuck into the game. Big regret. It’s also going to be difficult seeing as I’m committed to at least polishing off a couple of games from the pile of shame for Shameless Gaming.
So yeah, great. This week’s community review is really going to be a community review, because it’s hard to talk about a game I haven’t even played yet.
But I will play this game. I’m one of those folks that’s had their fill of ‘this-gen’ JRPGs, but Bastion, as it does, taking its inspiration from the JRPGs I played as a kid on my SNES, interests me greatly.
I’m really keen to hear what you guys thought of it. Let me know in the comments below!
