I hope this game is good.

Oh my god. The music is awesome.

Awesome

I wish the kid looked more like his artwork in-game.

Really looking forward to trying this.

Looks great, can't wait!

Hopefully it comes to PC and PSN at some point.

Could not be happier than Greg K. and the rest of Super Giant Games.

@Masha2932: It was confirmed for PC earlier today. No plans for PSN, at the moment.

Man I can't wait for the PC version. I need to play this game.

Brad is #1. Proof that his real gaming skills are not what they seem based on Quick Looks.

Posted by GeneralZod37

Got the points in my wallet just waiting for the game to drop.

Buying this the second it goes live in the morning.

Speaking of which, Jeff said this would go up tomorrow, so I wonder if it's a mishap that it's up here now?

Posted by Khann

Seems a bit over the top to do a ridiculously constrained QL like this...

Posted by papercut

Wait...Brad is good at games?!

Posted by Darkstorn

PSN!

Posted by Beforet

As it turns out, Brad is good at games. This is a shocking revelation.

Wow I  can't wait to play

Posted by Askherserenity

UGH! Why is it such a short quick look? :'[

Posted by JRizzo101

The music for this game is sick!

Posted by Khann

Yep.. definitely a good thing you guys didn't review this after watching this QL.

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME BASTION

Posted by Mr_Skeleton

The music is great!

Posted by JackSukeru

I really, really like how you can add stuff to the difficulty though. Guess I'll play it on PC, don't have a gamepad though, maybe I should get one?

So yet another Quick Look where there's next to no info about anything because they're so fucking worried about spoiling something.
 
Yo, gonna share a pro tip with you cats: If you don't want to spoil yourself on a game, don't watch a fucking QL before you play it. How's that sound? Rational thought. I know that isn't too popular these days, but give it a try, it's pretty good.
 
All this QL told me about Bastion is that you have no invincibility time - thus it's needlessly frustrating - and that there are long, boring, Mad Moxie-style arenas with bullshit rules. Yeah, that's the opposite of fun, sorry. And with NOTHING else to go on because they were so terrified of spoiling something, that paints a very bad picture of the game as a whole. I'm certainly not fuckin' getting it now. Why would I? Crappy-looking combat in a game that looks just one or two steps above a Flash game. Nope. Need more substance than that, I'm afraid.

tragic finish!

Posted by Vexxan

Already decided to buy the game so I don't think I need to watch this.

Posted by Masha2932
@AstroCow: Thanks for the info. Hopefully the PC version has user generated challenge maps.

Any one else getting 200 stream not found errors?

Posted by s7evn

@ChibiSoma: Go watch the building videos, which are basically story oriented QL for the game.

Posted by Nomin

Brad loses his ability to play games the moment he begins to open his mouth. 
One of the better X360 exclusive releases of the year, and is it any surprise that it is bound to XBLA platform?

Posted by 49th

I am totally going to watch this tomorrow morning.

Posted by Mijati

@ChibiSoma: Pro Tip: lots of people watch Quick Looks to get an idea of if they'll like a game or not, so trying to avoid spoilers for something which appears to be so story driven is a good idea. They've shown off the intro to the game a lot of times previously so they couldn't show that again and anything further into the story would be spoiler heavy. What else were they meant to show?

You sound like a child, why do you go out of your way to voice your hate when you haven't even had a chance to play the game! Listen to the bombcast if you want more opinions on other parts of the game.

Good thing this looks fun. Glad it isn't just coasting on the art and atmosphere.

Your opinion is misinformed and wrong. Also, if you paid attention, you would've learned that those arenas are separate from the regular game.

Keep on ragin'.
Posted by Moppy

I can't wait to play this on PC.

Posted by Getz

God, I wish I could download this at midnight and just play it until morning.

Posted by danimal_furry

This actually looks like a "total emmersion" game. The individual parts aren't beyond amazing, but the details all combined can keep interest for a long time and seem to make it great. There seems to be a ton of detail. I cannot say I dislike the prospects of this game. My only worry is that if GB is the only group that digs this, will they be labeled favortists. I really like it from this QL and all the rest I've seen.

Posted by allenibrahim

Doubt this is coming to PSN anytime soon, so...DAY ONE PERCH Steam version. It'll make a perfect first Steam purchase for me. Looks like a ton of fun.

Posted by proggykins

I am immediately buying this game once I recover from the Summer Steam sale.

Posted by Nomin

The game is scoring 8.9 on Metacritic. Seems more than a pretty decent release. Are they all bestowing favors due to Kasavin's previous connection with games journalism industry?  

Posted by Duffman

I don't think I've heard Jeff swear this much during a quick look.

Posted by Nephrahim

Brad good at a game?!  What madness is this?!

They've stated why the won't review Bastion plenty of times already.

Any news on PC release date?

They did a series of in-depth interviews with the developers of this game and went into quite a bit of detail about it. This QL is probably just their way of saying, "Hey, we've already went into this game pretty deep a bunch of times, so here's one of the few things we haven't looked into."
 
They usually are over-worried about spoiling, but this isn't one of those times.
Posted by JackSukeru

@ChibiSoma: Missed the part where this is only a compliment to all the other EXTENSIVE coverage they've done on this game, including a five part mini series (which they point you at in the quicklook), featured written article and discussion on the bombcast?

Yeah, just assume that all game critics lack any degree of professionalism or integrity. That's not hugely disrespectful or anything.
