I hope you guys have heard of Bastion. If not, I pity you. It's easily my favorite video game with great visuals, music, and an amazing storyline. If you haven't heard of it, go look it up right now!

 

Anyways, the creators of Bastion have done it again. They're releasing a new game: Transistor. It focuses on Red, a popular singer in the future. One night, five assassins break into her room and steal her voice, intending to kill her, but an amazing weapon, the Transistor, transports her across the city in the blink of an eye. She finds herself in an unfamiliar part of town being taken over by an army of robots called the Process, and as the game progresses, she discovers who tried to kill her, for what purpose, and the mysterious link between them, the Process, and the Transistor.

 

Personally, I'm really excited about this game. Supergiant Games knocked it out of the park with Bastion, and I can't wait for the blending of the art and music of Bastion with a Sci-Fi genre.

 

UPDATE: Transistor will be released May 20th for PlayStation and PC on Steam. Get excited!

 

Here's the trailer:

So, what do you think?

Haha, I've had a Transistor theme in my blog here ever since it was announced. Needless to say, I am excite to no end. Bastion is one of my favorite games ever, if not my favorite, and Transistor looks like it will be pretty freaking sweet as well. 

 

I've been trying to avoid first looks and the like, though, because I am totally buying Transistor the moment I can throw my moneys at them. However, I did see that the other day they announced that they were almost into the content-lock stage of development, which pretty much means "The game is gold, but we want to playtest it more and make it the best".

 

So yeah, I can't wait at all.

I purchased Bastion on a total whim and can safely say I've adored it from beginning to end since. So I too am really excited for Transistor. I'm only worried it's gonna end up feeling too similar.

I was extremely late in boarding the Bastion bandwagon, so Transistor's timely release is going to save me from the pains of Supergiant-deprivation, which can only be viewed in a positive light. Here's hoping that everyone's favorite San Jose-located Development Studio does it again.

I almost forgot about the new battle mechanic. Turn is a system that brings up a very Sci-Fi looking grid for you to plan where to move and use the Transistor's powers, then execute them at super speed. It can also be used in a few puzzles the game may include (I'm really happy about that last bit).

Personally, I'm a bit reluctant about Turn. It seems like a good system, but I don't usually play games with that kind of system. It will be really weird for me, and it may detract from the gameplay a bit.

I am looking forward to Transistor very, very much.

 

I loved Bastion, to the point of it being one of my favourite games. I just hope Supergiant Games can deliver something of the same quality, or even better.

 

Also, it looks really cool.

I just found out about this as well! I'm so excited! There's also some new screenshots out there with new enemies that look really cool. Building the Squirt has given me some ideas for building some of these Process bots. I may have to try it at some point.

As of like 30 minutes ago, Transistor is now out for preorder. 20 dollars for the game, 30 for the game + soundtrack.

 

And let's face it, you kinda have to buy the soundtrack. =P

I absolutely LOVED Bastion and I can't wait for this game! I even cosplayed Red at Anime Boston this year. There's a picture on Tumblr but it's not that great, though...

 

From the trailer, the gameplay looks similar to Bastion, which is nice because I liked the way Bastion played (even though I kept falling off of things boo). 

 

Once I have money/a new computer that doesn't belong to my high school, I'm definitely going to get it!

So it's not odd I want the soundtrack more than the game? :D

So, Supergiant Games just uploaded the Transistor Launch trailer to their youtube channel.

 

This game just looks better and better. (that voice, that music, that art... so amazing)

Good find! I'll add it to the first post!

 

3 more days (depending on how you count it)! I'm personally going to wait until the first Steam Sale, which will hopefully be the first week. $20 is not a bad price for a game that looks and sounds like that, but I'm a cheapskate. :D

Having played a bit of Transistor now, I can say I love the way functions work and how they affect each other when passively on another.

 

 

Spoiler because some of the functions mentioned aren't unlocked right away:

Let me look at my current build. I've changed it a few times already, which is something I feel this game has over Bastion already. In Bastion I always found setup per run and just used that all the time, but I've changed my build so many times already in Transistor it is just crazy. xD

 

Spoiler

 

I am loving the heck out of this game.

So, is it worth buying now? Or should I wait for the sale? I'm so excited to try it, but I've already spent so much this month.

If you don't have the money, I would say to go ahead and wait, I guess. Make it a priority next sale, though.

Transistor is on sale (25% off) on Steam for the next day. I already picked it up! Can't wait to play!

 

EDIT: Oh my goodness, this game is so much harder than I thought. The 2.0 stompy guys (because their name is edited out on BZP) kill me every time, and I lose an ability. Also, 

 

Spoiler

 

It's still even more beautiful and amazing than I could have hoped. I watched the E3 preview before everything was finalized, but now with all the little animations like birds and the trail of the sword, the game has so much more ambiance to it.
