It's the narration--which plays a pretty significant role in the actual game, by the way--that initially made this game stand out to me. Here's the first batch of screenshots to go with the video.
There's a real responsiveness to the action in Bastion that you wouldn't initially expect when you hear the term "action-RPG." On Thursday we'll have a chunk of in-game footage from the version that'll be on display at PAX this weekend and I'll talk a bit more about how it all handles. Oh, and speaking of PAX, the guys from Supergiant Games printed up some Bastion postcards that they'll be handing out during the show. Consider that your "free stuff alert" for this weekend.
