I LOVE this game. It hurts... but it hurts so good.

I also loved "competing" with +Jeep Barnett and +Justin Ryser to see who could get the least used symbols and/or fastest delivery.

I've tried getting my teenager into it but he has (sadly) become averse to gaming with challenges. I'm working on that.

My love of Star Wars was strip mined by shitty video games even before the prequels came out. Now I'm bitter that all these amazing SW merch and collectables have appeared after I don't have any shits left to give. Looks cool though.

I was surprised how different the gameplay is from Bastion. The combat is mostly turn based and there's no environment hazards other than enemies. The system for selecting skills and upgrades is very unique and really encourages trying different combinations. I like how the complexity grows over time, but never feels overwhelming. It has the same clever system as Bastion for customizing the difficulty with debuffs for rewards.

The story is bat-shit insane, even more so than Bastion. It turns out to be a similar sort of apocalypse, but it feels like most of the collapsing is happening offscreen. I don’t really follow how all the character including your own fits into it. At the same time this makes the world feel very massive.

I miss the destructible and animating environments of Bastion, but these are incredibly beautiful. All the character an enemy design is wonderful. The music is amazingly good, but is much harder to describe than Bastion’s mix of Indian and Western.

It’s tough to live in the shadow of Bastion. This isn't my favorite game this year and didn't meet my very high expectations, but I still like almost everything about it and was left wanting more. It probably the most stylish turn-based combat games I've ever played. It’s pretty different from almost anything else I've ever played including Bastion, so it’s worth experiencing for that.
