Episode 84 - Transistor

14Jun

In this month's episode of the PlayCast, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) turn hepcats as they discuss Super Giant's indie darling, Transistor, and create a list of recommended jazz albums in this month's ConcertCast segment. Shawn is admittedly not a big fan of SG's first title, Bastion, so how will returning to play another game by this developer fair? The guys breakdown all of the ins and outs of the game, including gameplay mechanics, graphics, and the game's lush soundtrack. Is Transistor a crumbling utopian, sci-fi adventure that you should add to your collection or download queue, or is it best left in the bargain bin?  Stay tuned and fine out!
