Bastion Coming To PC August 16, Heavenly Soundtrack Out Now

Some of you may have heard that a little game called Bastion came out recently on Xbox Live Arcade. And sweet Tim Gunn on a bun is it good. Like, game of the year contender good, at least in my humble opinion. The only real negative aspect of the game is that it was only limited to Xbox Live Arcade. Well that's changing on August 16, when the game arrives on PC. In fact, you can go ahead and pre-purchase the game from Steam right now for $14.99. Sorry PS3 fans, no word on a version for Sony's console.

For even more Bastion goodness, Supergiant Games has also released the official soundtrack for the game on Bandcamp. It's an amazing soundtrack, which you can listen to on the Bandcamp page or download for your own listening pleasures for a mere $10. There's also a $15 option that gets you a good ol' fashioned physical CD, signed by the game's composer Darren Korb, as well as access to the downloadable tracks. Korb calls the music genre "acoustic fronteir trip-hop" and I really couldn't think of a more accurate way of describing the haunting and beautiful soundtrack.

Note: as amazing as the soundtrack is, it's advisable to play the game first, as some of the songs make a much bigger emotional impact if you hear them for the first time with the gameplay.

As I have a PS3 and a PC, I haven't played the game, but it's been getting much love from just about anyone I know who's played it.

Taking a listen to the soundtrack on the Bandcamp Page, I'm really digging the style of the music. Thanks for the link, time to spend $10, before I even get a chance to play the game! :)

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
