Have you played it before? I think the hype for the game > game itself by a pretty wide margin.

I have never played it before, and all I know about it is that it is supposed to be a pretty good ARPG. Accordingly - and unless I go hunting for more information - I doubt it will disappoint me. (We'll see!)

EDIT: I am currently putzing around with World of Goo HD and Space Invaders Infinity Gene. The former is fun, and the latter is ridiculously awesome (...so awesome, in fact, that I am totally going to spring for the in-app purchases).

I'm doing an accounting of the new games I acquired this year and over half are either GOG releases of old games or an existing game that's sat on Steam for a while but I never bothered picking up. It's mostly the former. I would be making much better progress on my Backloggery if GOG would stop getting awesome shit.

Definitely didn't care for it. Style and no substance.

Next year I'm going to see if I can balance things better towards consoles. I mostly stuck to my plan of playing my started but not finished games (barring things like new releases, TRs, and the like) and only fell of the wagon at the end of the year to bust through a variety of expansion packs. But now, of the 262 games I have marked as started but not finished only 27 of those are PC games. So if I keep that policy I will have a shift towards the console end of things.

Wow, I just beat Bastion and was on my way here to say the exact same thing. Good timing! Fantastic presentation both graphic- and music wise but damn was the gameplay itself boring. Now I'm back to playing Ys Origin and my heart is pumping like a racing rabbit's, that's how ARPGs should be done!

Indeed. You are doing it right.

Ys Origin is the best post-16-bit action-RPG.
