In this day and age, it is very, very hard to go into a game completely blind. Even if a person doesn’t read reviews or anything, just the act of looking up a game online for purchase will expose you to some kind of rating or opinion on the game. Personally, I’m mostly okay with that. I do my research, and, I mean, I write these articles to let other people know whether I think a game is worth their time, as well.
It really surprised me, then, that there was a game that I hadn’t heard any buzz about before it was released. Even more so because it was from the fairly high-profile team that had created Bastion, which was itself something of a sleeper hit a couple of years ago. As it was also one of the first fairly high-profile indie games to hit the latest generation of consoles, I figured I would check it out and see what it was all about.
