Bastion Hands On Preview

Narration of an entire game? Unpossible! UPDATE: Jason provides more details and impressions.

This year, we're doing something a bit different. In order to bring you coverage as fast as possible, we'll be posting audio recordings of notes from staff members at E3 and later adding in a written version of the impressions. Please click through and check out this staff member's recorded thoughts on the game from the E3 show floor.

Notes

- Will be a part of the Summer of Arcade, created by 7 people, one of which just did the narration

- Action RPG Brawler

- Narrator says what you do as you do it, making it a part of the story

- Shaft-like narrator that sounds cool

- Main character's name is Kid

- Starts with him waking up to an unknown world (Bastion)

- Once you hit a button, you wake Kid up, and the narrator immediately spoke as the action was completed

- After waking up, you find a hammer (the character's old best friend, according to the narrator)

- Most of the time, you are subtly prompted if you are prompted at all.

- Everything above ground can be smashed with the hammer

- Bastion's world is floating in nothingness, similar to Mario RPG, but the game is self-aware of this fact

- Shortly after finding the hammer, you find a bartender you knew, he's made of ash, already dead

- You find a shield, you have a gun

- Turret pops out and you can either detroy the turret or shield yourself.

- You collect blue spirit energy that will help revive the bastion.

- As you revive the town, it opens more stuff up to you in the quest

Best game I've seen so far? Undoubtedly, just for the charm.

Dark Souls II: Crown of the Old Iron King Review

“Haunting” is a perfect word for the realms of the Souls games. No matter how you look at any given landscape, you can always scrape away the remaining rays of hope and damn near breathe in the tragedies that aerate from the world around you. From the initial moment you step in to the domain of the Old Iron King, you hear the ghosts of the past crying for help as you walk through the ashen covered landscapes that are filled with dusty remains of those who never made it to see another day. There is no light to be seen, and the despair can be enough to madden to most stoic of heroes.
