If you type bastion in the search it brings it up at 600msp points, guess they are literally updating it

I havent got it yet, worth it?

As normal its for Gold members only. Meant to be one of the top arcade titles.

Any good this ?

Its a good and recent game. Why is it on offer so often? It must sell no copies at all at full price!

Finally a good xla deal, bought 4200 points for the xmas sale and still got most of it, they've had crap deals after crap deals so far.

For a game where you spend so much of your time hacking and slashing, that's a disappointing revelation.



Eurogamer Review (8/10)

Might give the trial a go, though the combat sounds disappointing.

deffo need to give the trial a go first i think

Ahhh great! Finally able to come into a Bastion thread without someone smugly saying it's free on Chrome.

Own it already, and would highly recommend anyone paying the 600msp to get to play it with a controller and gamer points.

How many of those do you think were sold at full price? Its been on offer on Xbox about 6 times since release, I've seen it as a steam offer, etc.

How many HP Touchpads were sold before the firesale?

Bastion - **** get it

Great game. I want from Dust or Stacking to drop.

About 6 times?
It has been on offer one (!) time as the first of their Christmas deals. But apart from this one day, there haven't been any offers yet.

its downloading now, supposed to be very good

I tend to only get XBLA stuff if its on sale or if not if I really want it

the Alan Wake game I will get day one, if you get your points for say 2100 for £15 then your still getting a deal

Annoying thing with most XBLA sales is by the time you get round to trying the demo out, the price has gone back up!

Great game, definately worth picking up. Hoping it'll be on the next humble bundle for PC.

Wait it out. MS are about to phase out MSP so give it some time and it'll be done with local currency, and probably get more for your money.

Definitely worth it. Plenty of gameplay (7 hours+) if you do all the side-missions. Great game, amazing story, excellent soundtrack.

Also to the "disappointing combat" quote, the combat is particularly easy at first, but then you get introduced to the "Gods" which are like the "skulls" on Halo games, so you can make the game much much more challenging. I'd also recommend the DLC which is just 80 points and pretty darn difficult.

Wait it out for a rumour when this deal only lasts a week? Sounds like a great idea...

Edited by: "blizzard7" 31st Jan 2012

Got this game on release day... one of my favourite games of last year. First game in a very long time that when I completed, I jumped right back in on new game plus.

Is this game long?

I doubt MS are getting rid of the points system to give us more for our money I fully expect everything to be more expensive as there'll be no 'deals' through third parties!

I'll be trying out Bastion later on but with Skyrim, Rayman Origins and Sonic Generations on the go at the moment it'll need to be very good to get any attention.

Yeah there doing it so shops cant offer MSP at 20% off etc. will just be set prices

I bought this the last time it was on sale for 600, awesome little RPG, great style and story.

The DLC for it is 80 point btw, adds a new mode and an additional challenge map (free on PC version).

Dammit, bought this game last week for full price. I could feel in my gut it was going to drop in price again. Been on this site too long...

Sweet, I almost bought this for full price the other night after reading about the developer sending a copy of the game to a customer stationed in Iraq. Glad I waited now

I usually get from here as its a bit cheaper than on the dash, takes a few minutes and you have the code.

Good deal btw, think I might go for this,getting the trial now to check it out first.

Really fun game, the narration sets it off well, and a good bit of dlc along with the game too.
