I’ve played about a half-hour of Bastion so far, and it’s definitely a charming game. The art style is gorgeous, and the plot is just vague enough to remain interesting as it gives more information. I’ll have to see how the rest of the Summer of Arcade stacks up, but this is a really strong way to start it.
- I played a little (very little) of Pig Up! today, and it’s cute. But… it’s also Unpleasant Horse. I like that PopCap can make little fun game samplers and we can watch them develop into full games, and Pig Up is more fleshed out with upgrades and such. Still, I was a little bummed that I had done it before.
- The full roster for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 has to be some kind of new land-speed leak record.
- I played quite a bit of Star Fox 64 back in the day, so I’ll probably have to at least try the 3D incarnation. I’m certain that my skills, which could at one point be described as “mad,” have faded into nothingness by now.
