XBLA Bastion have you tried it?

post #1 of 27

Quote:
Bastion stars "The Kid," - and that's pretty much all I know about the main character. The game is set in a gorgeously drawn world ... and that's about as much as I know about the world too. As you can see, a lot of the details for this upcoming downloadable arcade game are still vague, but what we do know is quite intriguing. Among the features the game is touting is a level design that sort of coalesces into place as you progress. Further, every action you take as "The Kid" is narrated in real time by a somewhat snarky narrator, giving your adventure a very humorous storybook feel.

Completely worth every penny.


Tons of fun, great narrative writing, funny, addictive hack and slash gameplay with upgrades...

Has anyone else tried this yet?

Just bought it, it sounds much better if you have 5.1 digital surround sound.

I know the narrator's voice sounds like Ron Perlman, but, it's not him.

Quote:
The other reason, probably the main reason, Bastion is using narration is because of Logan. In addition to being perfect for the part, Logan offers us one other great advantage: We have access to him. Some people mistook his voice for Ron Perlman’s. Let’s say we could afford Ron Perlman, lost our minds, and decided he’d be better than Logan for the part. We’d have maybe two or three recording sessions with him for the lifetime of the game. With Logan we can iterate rapidly, and we need to in order to get the narration in the game to feel as closely connected as possible to the moment-to-moment play.
