A simple game, gloriously presented

It's easy to become especially charmed by Bastion. The developers are seemingly familiar with how to craft a world with intrigue, Logan Cunningham (the narrator), Darren Korb (the composer) and the artists who poured liquid bliss into my eyeballs are the highlights of the game.

It is with this that I recommend Bastion, but with a caveat - knowing that the entire package has been gift wrapped so well and it's so exciting to uncover, that you won't mind what's truly inside it.
