From Dust/Bastion?

So I've seen this on Steam coming up, and now released. Anyone try it yet, and have any pointers on how it is? It looks like it *could* be great, *could* be a misfire, from what I'd read about it in advance.

Likewise, Bastion? Looks interesting, but curious to hear input from others.

Anyone?

I've got it on my wish list, it looks interesting enough to throw down $15, but not this paycheck -- I spent too much on tech gadgets already, and that was before I broke my iPhone and had to get a new one. :/

But still, it's got 1300+ recommends on Steam, which seems decent for a recent release, especially for the low price. And it's Ubisoft, which has had some wins before...

That was for From Dust, btw. Haven't looked at Bastion yet, but I have a feeling it might also end up on my wishlist... :)

What she said about Bastion. About From Dust: I've seen strips in Penny Arcade and VGCats that seem to point out how frustrating it can be.

Zero Punctuation has a dual review, actually.

Some people have been complaining about DRM and other PC version type issues for From Dust, but i'm not sure if they're real problems or just PC gamers being PC gamers :)

Let's see.... here we go.

Can't say anything about how fun either of them are, but i've certainly heard a lot about both of them and they certainly _look_ interesting.

Everyone seems to like Bastion... I'm thinking about getting it myself. But it seems like a game it would be better to play on XBox rather than PC.

I have been playing it for a bit over a week. Fascinating sandbox god game with one level that makes me seriously consider tossing my controller through a window. But despite that one level, I recommend it highly. You get to build islands!
