This game feels like a throw-back to the SNES era but made with modern game design concepts.

Great gameplay, great soundtrack, and a great narrative. Really, I got more emotional from this game than Walking Dead did.

So you just rolled the whole time? I don't think you can kill anybody that way.

This. Only I found the narration to be try-hardish and annoying so that was completely lost on me. Game's pretty useless unless you like the narrator, which most people seem to, luckily.

And to the guy above me...pretty sure X is the attack button. Unless you're using a PS3 controller or something

I don't know about you guys, but I think it's really impressive that this guy was able to beat the game doing nothing but rolling. He evidently didn't use the dpad either so all of his rolls went in exactly the right direction each time too.

All the snarky comments aside, is this worth picking up? I have a bunch if money in my steam wallet that I'm trying to burn during the sale.

Well did you play through the game? On your Steam profile, you have a bit over an hour in it; granted it's not a long game, but it's longer than that. I can understand if you didn't enjoy the game enough to continue, but.. I'm not familiar with this usage of "try-hardish".

Now, I remember I played the original demo and absolutely HATED the game to the point where I actively bashed it. Ended up buying later, and played it through three times. Bastion grew on me and ended up really enjoying the whole experience, and the clever way to increase your difficulty by your choice. I just don't see how a game that aims for a distinct atmosphere and style is try-hardish. What are devs supposed to do, not try new things?
