There was a lot of good buzz surrounding Transistor during PAX East. However, it wasn't until right now, while watching this extensive demonstration from developer Supergiant Games, that the sci-fi action-RPG had me looking into cryogenic freezing. Sadly, I'll have to wait it out like the rest of you.
Beyond the standard real-time combat, players can pause the action to plan out -- and then execute -- their next attacks. This should give Transistor a different pace from the studio's last release, Bastion, while still appealing to people who dug that title.
