In 2011 the world received Bastion from independent game development company Supergiant Games. It was an immediate success, and it would not surprise me if it is still selling well for a three year old game right now. Everyone knew another game had to come from these developers, and waited patiently until Transistor was announced. From that point on, people were less patient in their waiting.
Transistor shares the action RPG genre of Bastion, but is otherwise not related with its new story, setting, and many new mechanics. You play as Red, a very popular singer who had her voice stolen and who now wields the Transistor as her weapon. With it, she must explore the city to uncover what is happening and stop the Process from destroying her technological world.
A central mechanic to the game is the ability to pause time and plan out your actions, to attack, or escape threats. Sadly, I was not able to capture any video of the process, which would have been the best way to show it off. All I have to offer are screenshots.
With all of that covered, is Transistor worth playing, or could it use some ECC?
