Proceed to be excited about Bastion
When I said there was nothing going on today that was before I read Giant Bomb’s coverage of Bastion. Namely, watched the video of Bastion played at PAX on the same page.
Go do so. Right now. This is shameless promotion, but they took a beautiful game, gave you a big ol’ hammer and a gun, and had a Ron Perlman soundalike narrate it in a beatnik style. As someone rarely excited by new things, this is the most legitimately awesome looking thing since Fez. Seriously, this oozes cool.
And hopefully this will eventually be released, unlike Fez, which I am convinced is more myth than reality.
