looks great, very happy for Greg Kasavin, been following his career for many years.

Posted by BisonHero

I really hope this game is as fantastic as all of the previews have made it seem.

@NocturnusFatalis: only time i've seen it talk while sort of in combat is between waves or when the combat portion finished and i've sort of been keeping up with the coverage on the game.

and i know that's not what you meant, but it wasn't a very good argument to dismiss the design decision based on how difficult it is to show the game off.

but yeah brad said stuff and whatever discussion is over until the game is out i guess!

Posted by W4TSON

Absolutely can't wait for this game! Definite purchase the minute it comes out.

I guess this game was made in the southern part of japan.
 
Also, GB recusing itself from a review sounds like a good idea.

@Brad

Am I wrong? I've already said I'd buy the game if I am. Morgan Webb was actually the one that brought the concern to my attention, so when I watched all the footage of Building the Bastion, and the afterparts of them showing off the game, sure enough, he was chatting away at every oppurtunity.  
 
How much the narrator speaks isn't concealed information, is it? I don't claim this is fact, but it is the conclusion I've reached given what's available for vieweing. By all means, if there are moments where I simply play the game, tell me.

@ShinAli

Didn't say that at all. I was using it as an example of how much he does talk though. Greg Kasavin was having a hell of a time speaking over him while the game was in motion, which let's me conveniently segue into the 'down time' you speak of. Every bit of footage I've seen from the game has him talking constantly, be it at the home base place, or in combat, and it's in combat where it bothers me. Kind of like RDR telling you how to do stuff in a text bubble at the top right while you're already doing stuff in the game.

@Trylks: That's swell. When he talks so much that it gets in the way of the developers talking about their game when they try to show it off (see any Giant Bomb video of them being interviewed with game footage rolling during a Happy Hour), it's an artistic design that fucking sucks.

You're probably going to feel pretty dumb in a few days here.

@NocturnusFatalis: so games should be designed based on how easy they are to interview with?

i trust that the designers are smart enough to narrate when shit isn't going down. if you get pissed about narration during down time then just don't play it i guess!

Lol... people take the internet way too seriously!

@NocturnusFatalis: 1:23 "wait to hear it", I think he is going to tell you every single thing that happens in the game, as a tale, that's part of the artistic design in this game.

No matter how many times I play this trailer, it never gets old.

Posted by Trylks

I wonder what is going to happen with the narration if the game is localized to non-English speaking countries.

Looks amazing!

Anyone know if there is any chance for a PS3 port?

Seeing it's published by Warner Bros there is a very good chance. Lot's of 360 downloadable exclusives have come to the PS3 after a year like Braid, Castle Crashers and next week Limbo is coming to PSN, with something extra added in it.

Yeah, I think being part of the Summer of Arcade means agreeing to be at least a timed exclusive. I may be wrong.

Normally, I might play something like this, but in all the stuff I've seen, the narrator never, ever shuts up. He sounds like a Captain Anderson that loves to hear himself talk and talk. The quality of VO work I'm not debating, but its constant presence would piss me the fuck off. I could be wrong, and if it turns out that the narrartor does indeed shut up most of the time, I may play it after all.

Dammit video games stop making me want to spend money on you . 
I still want to get ps vita

@DJJoeJoe: When the project first started, they definitely went on record stating they would not do a review of Bastion, based on the inherent bias. That's the sacrifice made for getting such a comprehensive look at the development process. Worth it IMO.

@DJJoeJoe: The conflict of interest I think is too high. Hearing from the development team on a monthly basis of trials and tribulations is obviously not how most reviewers go about the process of reviewing a game. I'm sure they'll talk a bunch about it on the Bombcast though.

Dang, I'm out of town for a week and a half the day after this comes out... 
Maybe I could beat it in a day?

@sahiljain512: I think they've gone on record and said that they won't review Bastion because of how close Giantbomb has been with the development staff and showing the process on Happy Hours and such.
really? I thought everyone was mature enough to understand what bias is and how to read it. I love the reviews here on giantbomb and I actually enjoy when someone is 'too much in love' with a game that maybe I won't like cause they illuminate parts of the game for me that I otherwise may not get from someone trying to pretend they don't have human emotions. 
 
If this is true and there is no GiantBomb review of bastion I will be kinda sad, I really dig the content on this site and would absolutely love to see their review of the game. Maybe I'll settle for their opinions on the podcast which I'm sure will happen.

This game looks great especially the narration aspect of it, correct me if i'm wrong but isn't Mr.Greg Kasavin (integral member of making the game) an ex-coworker with most the Giant Bomb team when they worked together at Gamespot? I am just trying to address a potential bias in the upcoming review, but again if i'm completely wrong just bash me for saying something stupid

Oh man, I can't wait.

I hope this is a huge success for those guys. After watching all the Building the Bastion videos here, I actually care about how well it does. Supergiant have worked their asses off. They deserve this.

Dat Art!

Posted by Cold_Wolven

That was a pretty cool trailer, hard to believe the game was put together by a team of 4 people.

Posted by yorro

This was developed by four people right? Damn.

I got to ask Mr. Kasavin about a PC version at PAX East. Because of the Games of Summer exclusivity deal, a Steam/PSN release won't be for some time, but will most likely see the light of day. The details could have changed since then, though.

I pray for that day.

Posted by DiGiTaL_SiN

I dunno... something is missing from this game. Art looks great, the audio is good, but I'm not sure about the gameplay yet. I hope Kasavin has something in store more than what I've already seen.
