Long ago, I promised you I’d get around to playing Bastion for real, and I’m happy to say I managed to beat it this week. Actually, credits are rolling as I type this. How’s that for timing? Solid game, and I’m looking forward to Transistor all the more for having played it.
This weekend, though, I’ll be diving into something I’m much less excited about, Bound by Flame, so I can provide a secondary review in the next print issue. I’ve already played through the very start of the game, and I fear I’m in for a long, bland ride full of the most generic fantasy stuff you can imagine. Maybe it’ll pick up a bit and actually surprise me, though.
