    plertudo's Bastion (PC)

    [August 31, 2011 08:08:21 PM]
    Bastion challenge us with an extra condition where monsters grew stronger in various way. For examples, they drops a bomb after they're dead, or regenerates health. You can take those challenges at the same time, which means they will be really strong while gives you extra xp and money to buy stuff.

    Bastion also encourage us to try new weapon combinations.
    The problem is, I , have to admit that I am greedy, want more xps and money.
    So I take as much challenge as I could during a play through and I failed miserably when I tried different combination at the same time.
    Turns out I only used 3 out of 12 during the first play trough ( luckily there's new game + which I will definitely try them with other weapons )

    There's one part in the game I loved so much.
    The Kid travels to a bog where he fell asleep and dream of things that happens.
    I get to experience the old level. It's not about revisiting an old content though. It's more like a more story behind what happened.

    Finally get to try Bastion, an independent dev's game.

    The gameplay , somehow, reminds me of Diablo where you hack and slashes stuff. the difference is you have two weapon and one skill of your choice at a time.

    What makes me dig into this game is a dynamic narration.
    The story is told by a point of view of another man besides your character.
    He tells us everything from a crucial part of the story to a behavior of your character, says you are destroying things laying around a level, the narrator says 'The Kid just rages for awhile'

    I went through a little bit of the game tonight, One line makes me feel that the story is well written and strong.
    *spoiler alert*
    At some point in the game The Kid will find a survivor.
    The narrator says "What do you say to a man who has seen too much. who knows. The Kid says this, 'we have to go, please'"
    I feel like this is such a really strong line. In a world that has been crumbled and everything is falling apart, after the narrator, an old wise man, says this, I fell deep into the world of Bastion.
