Bastion is an Action RPG for Xbox Live Arcade coming out in Summer 2011 and PC later this year. It is the first game from independent developer Supergiant Games and has received several accolades following its debut at PAX Prime in 2010, including two nominations in the prestigious 2011 Independent Games Festival in the categories of Excellence in Visual Art and Excellence in Audio.

In Bastion, players take control of a character known as the Kid, who is thrust into a world that has literally crumbled around him in a great Calamity. He must now construct a safe haven and build a new world from the remnants of the past. The game features lush and imaginative artwork as well as an innovative reactive narration system that responds to the player’s actions in real time all throughout the adventure. Bastion includes more than 30 areas to explore set in several wildly different environments, a variety of weapons and upgrades to discover, and a deep storyline to unravel.

The action-RPG Bastion won over the gaming public with its incredible attention to every detail—from the tight combat controls, to the inspired, narrator-driven storytelling in a novel, post-apocalyptic fantasy world. Players take on the role of the Kid, entrusted with the thankless task of restoring the world after a disastrous calamity. With a none-too-small arsenal of stylized weapons, jaw-dropping art, and amazing music, Bastion truly deserves its reputation as a must-play indie game by Supergiant Games.

Bastion half off... what more to say?

Probably the best XBLA game of last year is half off right now.

This is one of the few games I actually did the whole 200/200 gamerscore on because I enjoyed it soo much.

Highly recommended!

 

On sale now for 600 or 7.50 dollars ^^

GoukiJones has been playing Bastion for the last few days. Challenged it and beat the crap out of it. Here are the notes from his time in the Wild.. as The Kid.

I’ve been taking notes sporadically the last few days, when I sat down to play the Bastion. It was about 3 sittings according to those Internet Jimmys. I spent at least 14 hours in the game. I played with Idols on as soon as I found them. I had 8 total and had them all on the last two levels. Although, I don’t think they made a difference on the last level. So here are the notes from the last few days and then I’ll get into some more details if you care to read on at that point.

-notes-
And then he falls to his death.

Don’t worry the kid ain’t scared. He about to PWN everybody up in chere!

The poor kid collapses after just one drag.

I think there was just a reference to something illegal like fresh bowls. If you pop a poisonous flower, the screen gets all blurry and slowed. If you pop a second poisonous flower right after the first one the comical announcer says.
“That’s all you come to the grove for?”
Maybe I’m just out of it myself.
“Leave it to The Kid for time for stompin’ swamp weeds.”

The world map looks cools, but I wish you could zoom out or something to get a better look at the entire thing. It’s pretty sweet.

No matter what the comical announcer says, always spin the bull.
