Transistor came out today. It's getting pretty good reviews so I grabbed it and... honestly I'm not really feeling it. Sure it's got great style, and the character building system is kind of interesting but the basic gameplay strikes me as "OK" at best.

 

Also for whatever reason, while I really dug the narrator in Bastion, the narrator here really bugs me.

 

Maybe I'm just in the wrong head-space for it or something. I'll give it another go in a day or two.

My complaint about the narrator is super-personal. You might like him just fine. The voice actor does a good job and all; I think his voice just reminds me of someone I don't like, or something. LOL

OK so after I read some reviews I realized I was kind of playing it wrong. I was playing it mostly like an action game, and it's really meant to be played almost like a strategy game. You can pause the action and plot out your next moves and I was using that sparingly, but after reading up on the game I went back and used that feature most of the time, and the game got more interesting.

((Damn that auto-post when you hit Enter feature!))

 

Also as I unlocked more and more skills character building got better and better. And in fact for reasons I don't want to go into, even the narrator started growing on me.

So basically I've gone from 'not feeling it' to 'getting it' and really enjoying it! Just took looking at it from a fresh perspective I guess.

OMG playing Transistor for the first time and it is just pure eargasm! And the visuals! This game is too beautiful.

Episode 8 - Contemplating Red

Originally Aired 6/1/2014

This is the companion piece to last weeks episode about the game Transistor. Primarily we focus on the storyline, and as a result there are some massive spoilers. If you have not played through this game, and more importantly beaten it, this is probably an episode you should be careful with. We clearly identify in the podcast when we are going to start dropping spoilers. Namely we investigate the characters and gender roles. Additionally we talk a bit about Wildstar and our forray into the game today. This episode features Belghast, Kodra, Ashgar and special guest Tam.

Episode 7 - Transistor Gushes

Originally Aired 5/25/2014

This week there were a couple of big releases, but our show notes were hijacked with a single 72 pt word.... Transistor. Below it was written "Things that are not Transistor", so we successful discuss both. This week Rae is travelling again, so we have our regular crew of Kodra and Ashgar and are once again joined by Dallian.

Well,my verdict on Transistor: I like it better than Bastion.

Maybe its because Im more into strategic games, so I really love the amount of thinking you can put into it.

Also, I liked the relationship between Transistor and Red.

Only the end surprised me a bit. I thought I still had an hour of game ahead of me when it ended.

Well, it was nice, but the best thing about it is the soundtrack. Its amazing :3
