Original Gamer: Xbox Live’s Summer of the Arcade is in full effect with its release of Bastion. Many already want to give it GOTY, putting it in the same category of other small games creating huge waves in gaming like Braid.
Bastion is an isometric 2D action game. Think Legend of Zelda, put it at an angle, and have the areas on floating platforms. You play as “The Kid” who wakes up to find his world in pieces. As part of the plan made before the world's destruction, he’s off to the Bastion where everyone is going to meet. It’s from there that he and an old man name Rucks try to figure out what happened and what to do next for their world.
