Look at that...view?
That’s right: Bastion. The game was a part of Xbox Live’s Summer of Play and received major critical acclaim. It caught my eye right around the time when I had just gotten my Xbox 360 back for its complex but somehow smooth Action RPG elements. The game especially stood out for its visual choices and its dramatic way of presenting the world, but enough about that. Let’s just dive right into Bastion.
It's a Space Ride!
Sitting here this week I’ve been trying to come up with ways to get my Dead Space 2 review into words. It’s hard for me to describe how I feel about it. When it was announced last year, I knew the game was going to be a blood-dripping masterpiece. Then I heard Isaac Clarke would be voiced, and I was a little iffy after my other favorite silent protagonist (Samus Aran) got “upgraded” to unemotional and stupid. Now that I’ve played it I can say it’s definitely a masterpiece alright.
