Oh I meant to say this last night, but I think my favorite free game is Ninja Senki. It’s a throwback to the old Gameboy Color games and plays similar to a Megaman game. It’s awesome. http://ninjasenki.com/
Also, another game where you play the bad guy that escaped me *spoilers* Braid.
I just finished the Bastion, really, REALLY good. The narrator is an excellent story telling mechanic, although the end really was kinda weak. I like the idea of multiple endings, I don’t like the idea of moral choices popping up at the end. Have developers forgotten how to do multiple endings?
I loved the weapons… sorta wish they went a little more crazy, but what we have is effective in certain situations. I finished the game using the shotgun and the mortar. I never really used my special attacks. They never seemed super practical.
At the end of the day though, Bastion was still one of my favorite games of last year.
Bastion was one of the few games I actually finished in 2011.
The combat was so fun and was always exciting. The weapons were just so unique and varied.
The pacing was superb and the narrator made the game special.
The adjustable difficulty with the Idols was quite incredible as it was entirely up to you how hard you want the game to be.
Overall, Bastion is a true gem of a game.
