Just realized… with my latest haircut I totally could have pulled off an epic “Red” costume for Halloween. Alas, it’s too late (and I’m too lazy) to go out and find/make a yellow dress with feathers on the collar and a big blue sword.
Transistor was something that was living on my Amazon wishlist for a while, so I was happy to be able to download it for free as part of my PS Plus membership earlier this year. I FINALLY got some time last week to dive in and…
WHAT A GREAT GAME.
Seriously enjoyed the first playthrough and am now on my second because of the replay value (you keep all your stats and unlockables). The battle system was complex enough to be interesting but not overwhelming–had me thinking of Final Fantasy in a good way.
As far as the story goes, what a trip! I was convinced for most of the play that I was in some kind of virtual reality that had been infected with a virus, but after getting to the end and reading online, it’s more like their world was partly digital. Such a beautiful, visually stunning, heartbreaking game. And the ending was so haunting.
Can’t recommend it enough.
