    What’s this on the dash about “Get Crimson Alliance and all three characters”, are you witholding them from people who don’t partake in your Fruit Ninja Kinect scam?

    Trial was fun but doesn’t feel like anything revolutionary.  (The narration is fun though).  Still debating this one.

    I was spoiled by Ms. Splosion Man.  I think this should be 800 points.

      Bleet bleet. Ms. Splosion Man is more of the same. Bastion is new from a new studio. Maybe when they make Ms. Bastion you’ll get your price cut, but by then the base cost will be 1600 anyway.

        “Bleet bleet”? (seriously?)  If you’re fine with the price, good for you.

    Loving this game but just have to say, the Summer deal this year sucks. Buy all 5 and get Crimson Alliance free. Every Summer there’s about 2 or 3 games I want from the SOA and same this year. At least in the past when I bought 3 I got some ms points, now to get anything we have to buy all 5 games and what about people who don’t have Kinect? What was the thinking behind this Major? Would be nice to get a response, you never have to any my questions over the years but I can at least hope.

      I don’t get the problem. To qualify for the free copy of Crimson Alliance, you have to buy five games. In this case, you can buy the two or three games you do want and then buy Crimson Alliance, which is still cheaper than buying them all. 

      I swear, people see the word “free” and will jump through whatever hoops it takes to qualify, even if doing so costs them more than just buying the damn thing.

    A lovely game, great narration and fun gameplay 🙂
    I’ll definately buy it, as soon as the pice is 800Ms points or lower, I never pay more for any live arcade game and that for a reason, if I would by games at 1200, they’ll eventually increase the price to 1600 and so on. Live Arcade game = 800 Ms points, nuff said, any else and it’s just way to much.

    A remarkable and original game, one of the best I’ve played (On any platform) in a long time. It is worth 1200 points, easily. Games like Bastion are the reason I’m not worried about the gaming industry. As long as there are people making titles like this one, we’re in a good place.

    Not much else to say on the matter.

    Bastion was an extremely cool concept. The reactive narrator is an interesting twist to the adventure game concept. I will pick up the full version soon.

    Bastion really has some lovely music. If you go to You Tube and run a search for Bastion, someone posted good quality clips of the music.

    Zia’s song in particular just won’t get out of my head…

    I finished my first play-through last night. I love the art style and the score is phenomenal. I will do a second play-through when I finish up The Witcher sometime this week.
