Which speaker did you use to relay the Transistor's voice? I started off with the TV's but changed it to the controller's a few minutes in. It felt oddly intimate, though my roommate said it kept weirding him out.
While I didn't get around to Transistor yet, I find it insane that this option isn't on a system level. I literally always play with my wireless 7.1 headphones on, and everytime a game uses this feature it's a huge hassle to me. Really shows how Supergiant game cares about minutia. Getting the minutia right is what takes a game from being good or great to being brilliant. Too few developers seem to have the penchant for it, or they simply lack the time.
Hope Sony'll get around to allowing us to disable the gamepad speakers and have that content mixed into the regular audio through the headphones/headset.
I've never used it in other games but it works well in Transistor. Seems "appropriate" somehow. Red is holding the transistor in the game, and it speaks to her. Everything she does happens through the transistor. You meanwhile are holding the controller, and duh, everything you do happens through the controller - I guess I feel more like Red this way?
So.. Yeah.. I use it.
