Played Transistor at PAX East a few weeks ago and loved the level they showed off. Who else can't wait for this game to come out?

#2 Posted by Demoskinos (15157 posts) -

I'm pretty pumped. Its a damn beautiful looking game. I just see little use in preordering unless it unlocks at midnight.

I was unsure whether it had a simultaneous PC release or not, looks like it does. I hope they get around to printing an artbook of some sort in the future, Jen Zee is definitely one of my favorite artists.

will probably get on Personal computer

I'm really looking forward the the making of feature that the GB guys have been hinting at.

FINALLY!!! The real game I've been waiting for.

I'm currently considering options that some would consider less than wise in order to have a ps4 by the 20th. I thought I would have more notice.

How's the OST?

I am still unsure how I feel about $20 digital games. I'm sure Transistor is worth it, but my gut is arguing with my brain.

I'm kind of over it already. I felt like I got $20 worth out of Trials Fusion so now I'm over the hump. PS+ often discounts a lot of games at launch so that helps also.

The ideal I strive for is to look at purchases as a pure measure of personal value. I don't care how the game is delivered or what size its budget or developer is. Two things matter: how much of a desirable experience does the game have to offer me, and how much will it cost me? Any price is potentially viable if matched by an appropriately desirable experience. I've played $60 games that gave me less than $60 worth of desirable experiences (i.e. bad purchases) and free games that gave me so many great experiences that they could have justified a price of $100 or more to me.

Regarding Transistor specifically, I'm optimistic and excited about it, but I'll wait until it's out before deciding on buying it. Once it's out, I'll be able to check out representative video of the game being played and read reviews and fan feedback to get an idea of what the game really has to offer, then I'll compare that with the asking price and decide whether to buy it.

I know nothing about it, but know that I want everything about it.

#13 Posted by csl316 (9478 posts) -

Come to think of it, Transistor's my most anticipated game of the year.

#14 Posted by Quipido (658 posts) -

I am looking forward to it as well. One of the few developers whose name (+ a minute long reveal trailer) is enough for me to simply buy it without more research.

#15 Posted by ervonymous (1297 posts) -

Buying it through the Humble store saved me a couple euros, sorry Supergiant if that's out of your pocket.

#16 Edited by Soulreaverm (63 posts) -

I was checking the steam store every day specifically to see if it was available for preorder yet. Once it went up, I purchased it (+ soundtrack) within 15 seconds of noticing.

I'M PRETTY HYPED.

I'll preorder it later today to get the exclusive multiplayer skins and 30 minutes of exclusive gameplay.

Pre-ordered a few days ago and ready to play this game. As for the price, I guess $20 is going to be normal for a while.

#19 Posted by RVonE (4703 posts) -

I just preordered it via their website for 29.98 dollars. On Steam EU it's 29.98 Euro which translates to roughly 41 dollars. Pretty happy that they allow me to just order the game in dollars.

Isn't this just a sci-fi re-skin of Bastion, or is it something more?

If you watched even a single gameplay video you should know how wrong that statement is.

#22 Edited by Corevi (4964 posts) -

@nomin: It's an action strategy game

I played it at PAX Prime last year. Already pre-ordered.

#24 Posted by SirOptimusPrime (2030 posts) -

Already pre-ordered, can't wait for the 20th.

#25 Posted by RonGalaxy (3267 posts) -

Hope my laptop can run it, cause I don't have a ps4 and probably won't have one until next year.

#27 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (6002 posts) -

I haven't preordered it, but I'm still looking forward to playing it when it comes out.

#28 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7099 posts) -

Preordered last week. Between Xbox having Super Time Force and PS4 having Transistor, this has been a great month for indie games.

#29 Edited by SomberOwl (728 posts) -

Is there any pre-order bonuses?

#30 Edited by Lydian_Sel (2501 posts) -

I feel absolutely rabid for this game, like I'm foaming at the mouth and can't sit still. I love Bastion so much and Transistor looks incredible! I feel the hype! I'm deep in it!

Yeah I got my ticket for the train a couple of weeks ago... Can't wait for this game... it is looking great...

#33 Posted by ripelivejam (4874 posts) -

ive only heard the two pieces of music but i wouldn't be surprised if the soundtrack tops bastion's.

#34 Edited by LiquidPrince (16181 posts) -

I would love a physical limited edition of this with a hardbound art book and soundtrack CD. That would be awesome.

#35 Posted by DemonicGoblin (18 posts) -

I'm really excited for this game and it is probably why I can't settle down and play a game for more than a few minutes at a time these last few days.

#36 Posted by Seppli (10250 posts) -

Is there a way to preorder Transistor on the European PS4 PSN Store? I'm definitely getting this day 1, if there are some goodies to be had for preordering, I'd do that.

No real reason to preorder, I am just going to get it when it becomes available. If I can predownload oon the ps4 then that's fine, but I am not sure if that's possible.

#38 Posted by Trusty_Spoon (84 posts) -

I am proper looking forward to this game. It looks amazing!

Yeah, this game should not be that huge, but where is pre-loading on the PS4 anyway? I really hoped that would be a thing this gen, it would certainly help to sell copies too.

#40 Posted by Humanity (10111 posts) -

I bought it ahead of time because hey why not. I was hesitating on whether I should get it with the soundtrack or not, since I honestly don't listen to soundtracks like ever, but I channeled my inner Jeff and threw money at the screen willy-nilly cause once again, why not.

#41 Posted by DemonicGoblin (18 posts) -

@quipido:

Someone on IGN asked if they could preload, Greg said it wouldn't be available for it. I Shot SG a question on twitter, but haven't gotten a reply.

#42 Posted by FakeKisser (366 posts) -

I pre-ordered the game and am very excited to play it. We'll see how much I get in before I'm out of town for Memorial Day and then start Watch Dogs, though...

Normally, I pre-order PC games for the pre-order deals, and I found it "odd" that Transistor didn't have any pre-order deals. However, I'm confident in that team, really love the art-style, aesthetic, sci-fi setting, concept, what I've seen of the gameplay.
