Meh. Can't say this is looking fun.
 
EDIT: Especially after seeing a 'quicklook ex' of it every month. About to sign up for a premium membership just so I can see the Happy Hours without this segment. Don't get me wrong, this game just isn't for me.

@Cyrisaurus: Yerp, never was a Diablo or loot-game fan either. I think that having so many BtB segments was kinda unnecessary, although I like the idea of following a game's development.

As fun as it looks from the footage, I can't wait to just play it on my high-def TV with my headphones on. I like the idea of the shrine system, the game looks a bit too easy for my tastes. I really hope there's a great story and it's hard to tell because they're so, sort of, secretive about it. I WISH TO BE TOLD A GRAND TALE!

Thank you so much for splitting the Happy Hour and the Bastion preview. Game isn't even out yet and I'm already sick of it.

God, I hope this game gets big, for Greg's sake, mostly.  I've see so many games that people drool over when they see it.  However, when they actually have it in their hands, it's nothing after a few months on the market.  Luckily, they have WB behind them as publisher, so it should gain downloads.  Just hope it has long legs. 
 
As for their downtime, they should take it easy for a while; eventually, they'll find another idea for a game by mere chance.  Hell, Pikmin was created because Miyamoto was thinking of making a game for little girls and happened to have the idea for the game while gardening one day.  At least, that's what I got from a small read from Wikipedia.

Really like the visual style, still not that interested in the gameplay. Pretty satisfied with the pace, though.

I have enjoyed an insider look at actually making an fairly independent game. It seems like a crap job. Also, it was interesting seeing the MS demands be put into a video, yet some 360 fans would argue the actual American Constitution is too complex. A private company requires more from their games than the US requires to run a country. I already knew this from my friend at Epic. And they get a lot of free space. The Bastion folks get zero room.

Im not much into the game either, but I find game development to be very interesting irregardless, especially with such a small team.

I do like this "inside baseball" stuff even if the game is just alright. 
Yo that guy was high on dopamine on his back porch. 20 months of blueballs will do that.

Thank you for doing this, Bastion devs. I'm really enjoying the inside look into indie game development.

Booo the game is almost out and this will end! :'(  This turned out great, I really wish more company's big and small did something like this. It was cool to get a little inside look at the 360 c ertification process btw, it always comes up in game news but I never knew what type of things it frapping required.

I wonder how much these segments will help this game. I'm going to buy it because I really respect those guys after seeing their work being made step by step. Also, it looks very fun.

I'll buy it. But I think that the behind-the-scenes look has been more interesting than the game.
