If you haven’t played Bastion yet, you’re off my Christmas card list. OK, you’re forgiven. But you really should try it. From a pure gameplay perspective, it doesn’t change much in the way of twin-stick-shootery, but the gravy and trimmings are really what make it so damn tasty. The voice-over chap, who seemingly reacts to every action with almost sarcastic commentary, the straightforward prettiness of the game itself, and of course, that outstanding soundtrack. Enough wordy-bollocks! Let’s get to it!
For optimum listening experience:
- Chew tobacco
- Watch a muted Firefly trailer on repeat
