Bastion released on Xbox One today, and it's free for those who have it on 360

[The Kid woke up with some pep in his step. It's the day he had circled on his calendar, the day he patiently waited for. The goods were free and the goods were good. You gotta cling to the little victories because the big victories might n...   read

Supergiant releases stylish Transistor vinyl and updates digital OST

The soundtrack for Transistor contains some of the coolest, chillest, sit-in-a-dark-room-and-vibe tracks I've ever heard from a video game. So while I normally don't think much of premium vinyl editions, I'm pretty curious about this one. S...   read

It's the last day to get Bastion on PS4 and Vita for less than $3

The Kid just rages for a while. He knows it's a fool's errand to try to rage forever. He's smarter than that. The Kid has already seen one Calamity and that's enough for a lifetime. Come December 15, The Kid figured it'd be best for everyon...   read

Bastion on PS4 is still great, but not worth a double dip

If you pinned me to the ground, demanding a list of the Xbox 360’s best games, I can promise you Bastion would fall out of my terrified lips. I would also be very confused throughout the whole exchange, but as long as you let m...   read

Review: Transistor

Does the "second album" syndrome exist in videogames? If you're not familiar with that phrase, it's the idea that a band's second album is much harder to make than the first. Should a band break away from the style it forged with debut or s...   read

Transistor doesn't stop once you beat the story
