Humble Indie Bundle V Is A Corker

There's a new Humble Bundle, wouldn't you believe it. And blimey, it's a good-un. I'm not in charge of deciding what's best, but this looks to me like one of the best bundles I've ever seen. Just look at this list: Amnesia, Limbo, Sword & Sworcery, Bastion, and Psychonauts. Seriously. And it has an absolutely brilliant video to promote it.

The Wailing Wall: Bastion’s Music Live

The headline doesn't refer to an extravagant orchestral rendition that you'd have to pay money to see, but rather a short video containing two of Bastion's most glorious audio treats. I'll never find these songs as powerful as I did when they first drifted in, just as the structure of the world and the melancholy of the situation slotted into place around my gun-toting kid,…

Holy Sale: Warner Steam Bundle Is A Bit Good

Edit: We're reading below that lots of regions outside the UK are being charged a really very much larger sum. Which sucks. Valve will always insist prices are decided by publishers, so yell at Warner. There's also confusion over the inclusion of Arkham City and War In The North - to be absolutely clear, the Warner Complete Pack definitely currently includes those games, whether by…

Bastion To Get “The Stranger’s Dream” DLC

Supergiant are apparently fully aware that when talking about Bastion over the summer, they say they designed the original game to be complete, and therefore not really requiring of DLC. Needless to say, that stance has changed a little, as they explain: "HOWEVER! In the weeks following the release of the game, we decided to put a little something together for the holidays as a…

You’re Kid-ding: Bastion In Your Browser

OK, Google's Chrome browser just officially became scary/magnificent. It's been able to run a few games - like Plants vs Zombies - in a browser window for a while now, but the excellent Bastion has just been added, marking a serious step up in what's technologically possible. The game starts playing in less than a minute of clicking the button to add it, it looks…

Dorkly: Squiggly Piece Rotates Right

Well this is unquestionably glorious. Did you play Bastion? Of course you did. You wouldn't be so epically silly as to ignore our insistence that you do, nor to have failed to buy it last week when it cost about 7p. So since you did, you'll be familiar with the wonderful voice of the narrator, and his real-time commentary on the action. But, wondered Dorkly,…

Making Me Steamy: Bastion Half Price

Beautiful, beautiful hack and slash dungeon-crawler (if a shattered archipelago of floating islands in the sky can be said to be a dungeon) Bastion is now half-price on the Steam digital computer game distribution pipe. I would use this opportunity to direct you to John's review, where he implores you to buy the game. But you don't need to believe his big lying face, because…

Be Heartening: A Bastion Interview

Artful dungeon-crawler Bastion charmed us with its strange world, solid combat mechanics, and elegant narration. John loved it. It even inspired Alec to a big old cleverthink. I decided to have a chat with Greg Kasavin, creative director and writer on the project, to find out a bit more about how Bastion came to be, and what the future holds.

True Grit: Back To Bastion

Supergiant's sombre action-RPG Bastion was released on PC a few weeks back; John has already told you what he thinks of it, but in the last few days I've been exploring its shattered world for myself. It's put me in a funny place. Spoilers of a sort await, so don't read this unless you've played the game, don't intend to, or don't give a toss…

Bastion Looks Set for August 16th Date

If the Steam page is to be believed then SuperGiant's esoteric dungeon-crawler is set to arrive on 16th of August (SuperGiant just confirmed this to us over email.) I am honestly expecting this to be one of the games of the year: it's a beautiful blend of compelling, click hack 'n' slash action with artful indie sensibility. What the screens and talk of whacking monsters…

Bastion Launch Trailer, But No PC Date

Awesome-looking (and even better sounding) esoteric action-RPG Bastion has arrived on the console boxes this week, but should also making its way to PC soon. Supergiant told us that the PC version has no set release date yet and explained: "We're still sorting out the controls and making a few other changes to make sure the PC version feels like a proper PC game." You…

Hands On With SuperGiant’s Bastion

One of many pleasant experiences at GDC this year was sitting down to play SuperGiant Games' awesome IGF-nominated fantasy action game, Bastion. I've just gone back and played the same build this afternoon, and remembered why I was quite so delighted by seeing this game in motion. Today has also seen the announcement that the game will be distributed by Warner Bros, which is great…
