I guess PAX East went well (I didn’t attend). I just read about a new game called Bastion coming to XBLA this year which I’m really looking forward to now. The art looks incredible, and the premise sounds interesting.
I bought Torchlight on XBLA yesterday after playing the demo until I ran out of things it let me do. It feels pretty fun when I’m playing it, though I know those sorts of games are all about extrinsic motivation, and it hasn’t felt challenging yet.
