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.

E3 2016: Change is Good

I enjoy watching E3 every year and trying to see the “theme” of each show. From second screen experiences to asynchronous multiplayer, there is always something that ties everything together. For E3 2016 that theme seemed to be that of change. While there may not have been a lot of surprises at this show thanks to a lot of companies pulling out and a record number of leaks, we did see a lot of high profile projects that looked, well, different. So let’s take a look at some of those well-worn properties looking to impress us by shaking things up.
